Scientifically-Proven Foods to Reverse HPV and Cervical Dysplasia

It is no secret that diet and lifestyle are two vital building blocks for you to heal out of any condition, and Cervical Dysplasia is no exception. So, if you want to reverse HPV and Cervical Dysplasia, diet is a great place to start.

A study published in PubMed has shown that diet along with lifestyle habits such as smoking or increased sexual activity can lead to a higher risk of HPV, the virus that is associated with Cervical Dysplasia. In particular, a diet that has a low intake of fruits and vegetables, especially fruits and dark-green and deep-yellow vegetables are directly correlated with the risk of developing Cervical Dysplasia CIN3.

Food is an important part of your healing journey

While conventional medicine seems to have a hard time recommending diet changes for this condition, the data from studies such as the one from the journal of infectious disease, indicate that the correlation between a good diet that is rich in antioxidants and boosts the immune system and recovery. 

So, what diet could help you with your dysplasia? Here are the ingredients that Disa Mineur used to reverse her cervical dysplasia. If you are not familiar with Disa, she healed her dysplasia naturally.

Foods that Can Help You Reverse Cervical Dysplasia

1. Vegetables with Carotenes (Yellow, Red, and Orange)

Carotenes are good for you as they transform into Vitamin A in your body. The science around Vitamin A and how it protects you from further growth of your lesions in the cervix is clear. A study done on 191 women found that a diet with beta-carotene-or some related aspect of a vegetable-rich diet-is protective against invasive cervical cancer as it boosts your immune system. 

2. Leafy Greens in All Forms & Broccoli Shoots

Broccoli shoots and most leafy greens consist of Indole-3-carbinol (I3C) which has a proven anticancer efficacy including the reduction of the advanced stage of dysplasia and its progression to Cervical Cancer. Here is a study from PubMed

3. Antioxidant-Rich Foods like Blueberries 

Antioxidant-rich foods contain polyphenols. Berries and dark chocolate are examples of foods rich in antioxidants. You can read about the benefits of polyphenols for your health here. Since such foods have anti-inflammatory properties, they can be effective in helping you reverse your dysplasia. 

4. Wild Plants such as Dandelion, Yarrow, Chickweed 

These wild plants help the liver, digestive system, and are Gaul simulating. In a study conducted by professor Dr. Siyaram Pandey in Canada, he used the dandelion herb to test the effect on cancer cells. As he puts it: 

“We dug out the dandelion root and just ground it in a home blender with water, made the extract, filtered it, tried to put it in the same Petri dishes where we grow the leukemia cells, and frankly speaking I was not expecting any activity because it was so diluted,” he says. Yet cancer cells started dying, and more importantly, the healthy cells were fine.”

These wild plants help the liver, digestive system, and are Gaul simulating. With a growing body of science and mainstream research starting to pay attention, this herb could be an important addition to your routine. 

5. Replace Simple Carbs with Vegetables or Whole Grains

When done the right way, a grain-free diet should help increase your vegetable intake while also reducing your intake of processed foods and sugary snacks. It’s essentially just a “whole foods” diet. And it makes one become creative, too! Have you tried cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or eggplant lasagna? If not, you may want to check out some recipes here.

If you prefer to keep grains in your diet, whole grains are a better source of fiber and other important nutrients, such as selenium, potassium, and magnesium. Whole grains are either single foods, such as brown rice and popcorn, or ingredients in products, such as buckwheat in pancakes or whole wheat in bread.

6. Choose Good Fats

Rather than adopting a low-fat diet, it’s more important to focus on eating beneficial “good” fats and avoiding harmful “bad” fats. Fat is an important part of a healthy diet. Choose foods with “good” unsaturated fats, limit foods high in saturated fat, and avoid “bad” trans fat. It is also important to have a balanced Omega 3 & Omega 6 ratio. Too much Omega 6 causes inflammation. You can read more about this ratio here.

More saturated the better. Less saturated they become trans-fats which are not good for you. 

What Did Disa Eliminate from Her Diet?

  1. Sugar (needless to say!)
  2. Simple carbs (replaced them with vegetables)
  3. Gluten (replaced them with vegetables, and not gluten-free bread) 
  4. Caffeine (replaced it with herbal teas) 

It took Disa just a few months to heal her CIN 3, and the journey also got her from trying to conceive to becoming pregnant!
