It is a proven fact that diet greatly contributes to detoxifying the body, rejuvenating damaged cellular growth to promote healthy tissue. This is ideally accomplished through herbs and nutrition. We have discussed some common issues that may arise with our cervix, now let us focus on some preventive maintenance we can do to ensure our cervix gets and stays healthy!
In conjunction with gynecological care, foods high in folate (vitamin B9), beta carotene and vitamin C have been shown to improve cervical health. The list below are some examples of foods and herbs that help promote a healthy cervix and combats abnormal cell growth. For proper servings and dosages contact a nutritionist in addition to an herbalist for detailed information.
🌰Calcium rich foods such as beans, almonds, spinach, kale
🥦Cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower
🍒Antioxidant rich foods as blueberries, cherries, tomatoes, squash
🧡Turmeric - contains curcumin which has been found to inhibit growth of abnormal cells on the cervix
💛Ginger - actively lowers inflammatory molecules (characteristic of cervical cancer)
💚Astragalus Root - enhances immune function and increases Natural Killer Cells (these cells attack viruses and cancer)
🍵Green tea - contains phytopheonols, catechins and flavonols which lowers the risk of cervical cancer
I can personally attest that by adding and increasing turmeric, ginger and calcium rich foods to my diet, my diagnosis of mild dysplasia has been reversed and not returned. I am passionate about consuming foods/herbs that promote health because they just work! Not just for a healthy cervix, but for overall health.
