Natural Treatments for HPV and Abnormal PAPs

What is HPV?

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI/STD) in the United States; in fact most people will be exposed to HPV at some point in their lifetime. The majority of HPV infections occur without any symptoms. Most infections resolve on their own within a period of two years and don’t cause any long-term health issues. However, persistent infection with some strains of HPV can cause genital warts or even cancer. The high risk-strains of HPV that cause cancer are usually symptom-free, which is why regular cervical cancer screenings with a PAP smear are so important!

Natural Treatments to Resolve HPV and Cervical Dysplasia

For women who have had an abnormal PAP (i.e. Cervical Dysplasis) there are many treatment options available depending on the severity of the abnormalities seen on the cervix. Dr. Burke is dedicated to supporting women with abnormal PAPs and she will work with you and your Gynecologist to develop a comprehensive treatment plan including natural immune-support therapies to help your body fight the HPV infection and reduce your risk of developing cervical cancer.
