HPV: LEEP, What are the Side Effects?; The CBCD Reviews the Medical Literature

Industry: Health & Fitness

LEEP (Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure) for cervical dysplasia has many side effects (1); CBCD reviews the study and recommends two HPV natural treatments.

“Infected with the HPV virus? The CBCD recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin.” – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Doctors Heinonen, Gissler, Riska, Paavonen, Tapper, and Jakobsson recommend reducing the use of LEEP in an article published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology. (1) This is because of the many side effects related to the procedure. (1) LEEP removes abnormal tissue with a thin wire loop that carries an electrical current. The abnormal tissue is normally found during a Pap test, colposcopy, or biopsy. (2) Side effects of the LEEP procedure include: damage to other pelvic organs, or the wall of the vagina, heavy bleeding, and pelvic infection. As WebMD points out, side effects that warrant a call to the doctor include “a fever, spotting or bleeding that lasts longer than 1 week, bleeding that is heavier than a normal menstrual period, increasing pelvic pain, bad-smelling, (and) yellowish vaginal discharge, which may point to an infection.” (3)

The CBCD recommends that people infected with HPV take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against the HPV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the HPV…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (4) The study authors also wrote that, “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (4)

Both products can be ordered online on the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

One especially worrisome side effect of LEEP is an increased risk for premature delivery in pregnant women. Study authors wrote that “The risk for preterm delivery was increased after LEEP regardless of the histopathologic diagnosis. The risk was highest after repeat LEEP, which should be avoided, especially among women of reproductive age.” (1) Another study said that “The obstetrical consequences of conisation for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) should be considered since patients affected by these lesions are actually younger and most often desire further pregnancies.” (5)

In other words, the LEEP procedures can cause serious side effects, and its use should be reduced or avoided if possible.
