We have had a patient who presented with HPV and moderate cervical dysplasia. Our patient did not want a LEEP and preferred naturopathic treatment. We spent a great deal discussing her choices as well as respecting her thoughts and together we decided upon Tori Hudson’s Escharotic Treatment in treatment of cervical dysplasia. Twice a week for 7 weeks and the dysplasia has receded from the outer edges of the cervix to the inner os. The dysplasia has turned from obvious whitish lesions on the bulk of the cervix to smaller and darker pinkish spots near the inner os. We have several more weekly appointments scheduled and I can not wait to see what her most recent lab work results and what they may reveal next week. Escharotic’s are powerful and wonderful naturopathic treatments. These can be alternative and/or supportive treatment for the allopathic treatment of HPV. Please refer to Tori Hudson’s protocol which can be found in the Women’s Encyclopedia Naturopathic Medicine. The treatment involves cleaning and washing the cervix with the natural enzyme, bromelain. This is left in place for 15 minutes with heat applied to activate the enzyme. The proteolytic properties in bromelain dissolve the top layer of cells on the cervix which are infected and damaged by the HPV virus. A mixture of zinc chloride and a plant Sanguinaria is applied to the cervix to cause sloughing of abnormal tissue. Zinc chloride is caustic and acts to disrupt the cellular membrane integrity and the mucus over coating to allow the Sangunaria to penetrate the cells. Sanguinaria has been shown to have anti-neoplastic qualities. Following each treatment, 2 Vaginal depletion packs, Vag paks, are placed inside the vagina and work by the action of the substances within the packs, which draw infection out of the cervical cells and boast the immune system. Each suppository contains: magnesium sulfate, glycerin complex, hydrastis tincture, thuja oil, tea tree oil, bitter orange oil, vitamin-A (as palmitate) 100,000 iu, ferric sulfate,ferrous sulfate in polybase. Hydrastis canadensis is effective against many microbial pathogens, as are the essential oils of tea tree, thuja and bitter orange. These are absolutely wonderful treatments and explanations! I am so grateful for being able to learn and grow with this patient as a future practitioner. I can not wait to help deliver this effective treatment to women in the future.
