|First Treatment: This image demonstrates severe cervical dysplasia (CIN3) on this patient's cervix. This was her initial visit and the staining is caused by the application of an "escharotic" solution that causes the death of the abnormal cells. This solution, comprised of zinc chloride and Bloodroot, only kills unhealthy cells while leaving normal cells unaffected. This treatment is repeated over the course of 6-10 weeks--all the while observing a decrease or regression of the dysplastic area.|
|Last Treatment: This is the same patient after treatment. All abnormal cells infected with HPV are gone. Her pap was performed 6 weeks later and verified an absence of abnormal cells. The yellow coloring is due to curcumin, an anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer extract from turmeric.|
Alternative Treatment for Cervical Dysplasia
The best-researched natural treatment alternative for cervical dysplasia uses an escharotic solution that is applied directly to the cervix. This solution, comprised of zinc chloride and Sanguinaria canadensis (Bloodroot), selectively kills abnormal cells of the cervix while leaving healthy cells unaffected. The following images demonstrate this effect:
|This is the cervix of a healthy 26-year-old without dysplasia
and without HPV after applying an escharotic solution. Notice
that there is a lack of staining to any part of the outer cervix
as well as the opening to the cervical canal. The zinc
chloride and bloodroot solution has no effect on normal, healthy tissue.
|This is the cervix after the application of an escharotic in a
41-year-old woman with a pap result of "HSIL". In this case
her paps were consistently abnormal while her colposcopies
and biopsies were repeatedly normal. Note that there is
staining at the opening of the canal demonstrating abnormal
tissue and/or HPV-infected cells.
|Note the larger area of staining in this 31-year-old with mild
dysplasia and a high-risk HPV. It is Dr. LeRoy's contention
that all mild dysplasia with high-risk HPV should be treated
proactively with escharotics rather than "watching and wait-
ing" to see if it'll get better or worse. The use of escharotics
tend to be most effective at earlier stages in the dysplastic
continuum. This is noteworthy because most conventional
doctors will do nothing and repeat a colposcopy in 6 months
to monitor progression/regression.
|This is the staining in a 35-year-old with a high risk HPV,
HSIL pap and a biopsy demonstrating moderate (CIN2)
dysplasia. Note that the most recent colposcopy only identi-
fied dysplasia adjacent to the endocervical canal. The
speckled areas away from the canal in this image are likely
HPV-infected cells rather than dysplastic cells; however,
they are stained nonetheless and will die in response to
the escharotic therapy.
|Note the very large area affected by the application of an
escharotic in this 21-year-old with severe dysplasia (CIN3).
Typically, an escharotic is applied 1-2 times per week for 3-8 weeks depending upon the severity of the dysplasia (severe dysplasia usually takes longer to treat than mild dysplasia). For patients coming from out-of-state or from out-of-the-country, Dr. LeRoy modifies his approach to instead treat consecutively for 2-3 days--often over a weekend--followed by 2-6 weeks of rest. He will repeat this over the course of several months until the dysplasia is resolved. This maximizes the likelihood of successful treatment while keeping cost to a minimum (i.e. it's not feasible to fly into Chicago once per week; however, flying in once every 2-6 weeks is manageable for many persons). The following images are from a patient who was driving about 7 hours every several weeks for 2-3 days of consecutive treatment:
Trip 1: This is the second day of treatment on the first trip
Trip 2: This is the second treatment on the second trip
back to Chicago about 3 weeks later.
Trip 3: This is the 3rd treatment of the third trip to Chicago.
Overall, this is the 7th application of an escharotic solution.
This trip was about one month after the second trip.
Trip 4: This is the eighth and last treatment. There is no long-
er staining of dysplastic or HPV-infected cells. This trip was
about one month after the 3rd trip. The total time of treat-
ment in this patient was 11 weeks from start to finish.
Natural supplements that are proven to assist in the elimination of HPV and dysplasia are administered orally. These nutraceuticals increase the likelihood that healthy, non-dysplastic cells will replace the HPV-infected cells that are killed by the solution. This "oral" or "systemic" portion of therapy may also assist in the elimination of the HPV altogether. There is also research indicating that a diet rich in micronutrients helps to clear HPV more quickly.
Cost and Appointment Information
Trip 1: This is a 27-year-old woman with CIN3. There is a very
area affected by the escharotic solution. Patient also has a
Trip 2: The cervix is looking much better; the area staining with
ZnCl and bloodroot is much smaller. Nice improvement consid-
ering the initial severity.
|Trip 4: Continued decrease in the dysplasia/HPV.|
Trip 5: This was the final trip to Chicago. There is no longer any
staining visible with escharotic solution (the dysplasia is gone).
The patient has been dysplasia-free and HR-HPV negative
ever since (fall 2013). Note: this case was more difficult than
typical because there was a moderate cervicitis at the onset of
