Natural Hormone Treatment of Cervical Dysplasia
by Elizabeth Smith MD
Previously, scientists had thought that cervical cancer was linked to sexual promiscuity and/or certain varieties of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). Now, researchers believe that birth control pills are causing cervical cancer. Cervical dysplasia, is abnormal cells found on the cervix. If the cervical dysplasia is not caused by infection or physically traumatic sex, cervical dysplasia is precancerous (cervical dysplasia leads to cervical cancer). Cervical cancer is now believed to be caused by excess synthetic estrogen in the form of birth control pills. However, of the 85,000 chemicals in use in the United States, some of these chemicals are hormonally active and happen to be estrogenic. These synthetic chemicals in every day life mimic estrogen (xenoestrogens) and also may cause cervical dysplasia.
John Lee, MD, the guru of Natural Progesterone has successfully reversed cervical dysplasia back to normal by giving Natural Progesterone and folic acid (a type of B vitamin). Birth Control Pills cause a folic acid deficiency. He used this same method to reverse cervical dysplasia in his daughter in three cycles.
In the study, commissioned by the World Health Organization, researchers combined the data from 28 studies, involving 12,500 women with cervical cancer from a number of countries including the United Kingdom and United States. Dr. Amy Berrington from the Cancer Research UK Epidemiology Unit at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, said the research showed that the longer women used the pill the greater their risk of developing cervical cancer, and the effect remained even when other risk factors for the disease such as infection with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) were taken into account. This runs contrary to the theory that the increased risk of cervical cancer among women taking contraceptives was likely due to exposure to the virus, rather than the pill itself.
They found that women who used the pill for five years or less had a 10 per cent increased risk of cervical cancer when compared with women who had never taken it. This increased risk rose to 60 per cent with five to nine years of use and doubled with 10 years of use or over. Read about it here.
Ranchers also give synthetic estrogen to cattle, and farmers give synthetic estrogen to chicken with the full knowledge that the estrogen will cause the animal to grow and mature faster. Now, Time magazine has cited the landmark study of 17,000 girls aged 8. 15% of these girls are going through early puberty and sprouting breast buds and pubic hair. The Time magazine cover story, October 30, 2000, cites that some chemicals mimic estrogen (xenoestrogen) and blames these chemicals for the early growth spurt of girls and early puberty. The Time magazine article believes that everyday chemicals that we use in our homes act like estrogen. These estrogenic chemicals (xenoestrogens) are to blamed for early sexual maturity in girls in the United States.
Could these same chemicals that act like estrogen (xenoestrogens) be also causing cervical cancer? Many researchers now believe that these xenoestrogens that are causing early sexual maturity in girls. Xenoestrogens are also believed to be causing cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer.
Mainstream medicine readily acknowledges that excess estrogen causes endometrial (uterine) cancer and most breast cancers. The incidence of breast cancer in the 1950’s was 1 out 20 women in the USA. The incidence of breast cancer in 1988 was 1 out of 11 women in the USA. The incidence of breast cancer in 2001 was 1 out of 8 women in the USA. As of 2003, some parts of California have a breast cancer incidence of 1 out of 7. Could xenoestrogens play a contributory role in the increase in incidence in these estrogen sensitive cancers? Many researchers suspect that these xenoestrogens are contributing to breast cancer and endometrial cancer. Researchers are now trying to find an environmental cause for a breast cancer cluster in Long Island, New York.
In general, estrogen and progesterone oppose each other. Estrogen tells the cells to multiply and proliferate. Estrogen slows down the body metabolism (body temperature is typically 97F), and builds up fat (around the hips) in preparation for the pregnancy. In contrast, Natural Progesterone maintains the pregnancy. Natural Progesterone tells the cells to mature, differentiate and NOT to multiply. It tells the body to use the fat. Under Natural Progesterone stimulation the fat is burned up and reduced.
