Natural Herbal Treatments and Vitamins for Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that affects women. This type of cancer is often detected during routine pap smears and tends to be slow-growing. It is usually caused by the human papilloma virus, which enters your body during sexual intercourse and spreads throughout your reproductive system. Symptoms may include a bloody vaginal discharge; irregular vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods, following sexual intercourse or during menopause; loss of appetite; severe fatigue; pelvic pain or back pain. Certain herbs and vitamins can help manage cervical cancer, ease cervical cancer symptoms and encourage healing.
