June 2008


Hello and Happy June! June is busting out all over as they say! The lettuce and spinach in my garden is almost ready to start picking ( I was a little late planting) and everything is so green with all of the rain we have been having. A nice reprieve before the real heat of the summer hits. This issue is dedicated to all women everywhere. I will focus on healthy pap smears and prevention of cervical dysplasia and helping the body deal with HPV (Human Papilloma Virus). Enjoy the bountiful early summer and the (right now) perfect weather! Also a Happy 50th Birthday to my husband Chrystos who supports me always and is my best friend and soul mate forever!

Heading Off Cervical Cancer by Diane Somerville

Routine screening has made this disease almost entirely preventable, but the virus that causes it still runs rampant. Simple precautions, a healthy diet, and regular checkups can keep it under control.

Abnormal Pap results. Those three words can instill fear in the bravest and most health-savvy woman. The mind goes immediately to cervical cancer, a disease that, according to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition, claims the lives of 3,900 women in the US each year.

The Vaginal Depletion Pack

Vaginal depletion packs have been in use since the 1800s. Vaginal depletion packs work by the action of the substances within the packs, which draw fluid and infection out of the uterus. These therapeutic effects make vaginal depletion packs effective in the treatment of such conditions as cervical erosions, acute and chronic cervicitis, abnormal Papanicolaou smears and conditions of pelvic congestion. Vaginal depletion packs inhibit local bacterial growth, stimulate the body to slough off abnormal cervical cells, and promote lymphatic drainage. from The Analyst

Men and HPV

Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is a common virus. Most sexually active people in the United States (U.S.) will have HPV at some time in their lives. From the Center of Disease Control and Prevention

Mache Recipes

Mache , or Lamb's Lettuce or Lambs Quarters is my new favorite salad green. Available in your backyard or at the store it is the turbo nutrient lettuce. It has a slightly bitter but not too spicy flavor a little like a mild arugula. Chock full of B and C vitamins , Lamb's Lettuce is one of the rare green winter vegetables. Beneath its chlorophyll, these little leaves contain large amounts of an orange pigment called beta- carotene, a natural anti-oxidant that combats cell aging and boosts your immunity.

Lifestyle Choices to Support a Healthy Cervix

1. Practice safe sex. Using condoms helps to prevent the transmission of HPV, a contributing factor in 90 percent of cervical dysplasia cases.

2. Drink up! Try to drink at least one third of your body weight in ounces of pure water each day. Keep in mind that you need even more water if you are lactating or live in a dry climate.

3. Eat your protein. Protein is a major building block for the immune system and healthy tissue.

4. Go organic. Organic fruits and vegetables contain carotenoid and flavonoid compounds that support a healthy immune system. Organic is preferable since pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides may be carcinogenic and may alter the body's hormonal balance.

5. Sleep. Sleep is the body's time to rest and repair and is important for a healthy immune system tissue.

6. Get up and go! Exercise aids promoting healthy circulation, oxygenation of tissues, and detoxification. Take your vitamins. A good multivitamin adds important nutrients that may be missing in the diet and can counteract the effects of stress on the body.

7. Get an annual Pap smear. Most doctors agree that women should have an annual physical and Pap smear to catch any potential problems early.
