Sex Cancer

Many people might not equate cancer and sex together. We know that sex, through the transmission of the HIV virus can be life threatening, but there are more problems. Cancer is a medical condition where a malignant tumor or growth caused when cells multiply uncontrollably, destroys healthy tissue. There are different forms of cancers that take place in different parts of your body.

My mother Nora’s sister died twenty-five years ago of cervical cancer. Aunt Lila’s death angered me at the time because Lila was involved in propagating regular pelvic examinations that could detect early stages of cancer in the cervix for the Public Health Department in Venezuela. Unlike most cancers, cervical cancer can be prevented and if caught early enough can be successfully treated.

A test developed more than 60 years ago by Dr. George Papanicolaou; the Pap smear is now a standard gynecological screening test during a pelvic exam. A Pap smear is a test that will collect cells from the cervix, the lower, end of the uterus. Laboratory analysis of the sample is used to look for abnormalities that might suggest the presence of cervical cancer or infection and inflammation. The American Cancer Society recommends that women have their first Pap smear three years after first having sexual relations, or at age 21 if they have not been sexually active. Professionally, I suggest these tests begin earlier since most young women are sexually active by age sixteen.

The cause of almost all cases of cervical cancer is a virus that is sexually transmitted. Unfortunately, the Pap test may not find abnormal cells until cancer already has developed. Luckily there is a test you can have along with your Pap smear to detect the virus that causes those abnormal cells called the human Papillomavirus test (HPV test).

HPV virus has become an epidemic. In healthy individuals the body’s immune system fights the HPV virus before it causes problems. When infected with the HPV virus, changes take place in the body’s cells that may develop into cervical cancer if not detected and treated early. Human papilloma virus is the cause of 99.7 percent of all cases of cervical cancer. Worse, cancer that develops from HPV is not limited to the cervix and if the virus infiltrates the lymph gland system, the cancer-producing virus can travel to any part of the body. Predictably, a woman infected with HPV will contract cancer in her lifetime and will probably eventually die from cancer.

HPV infection is spread by direct skin-to-skin contact with infected body fluids during vaginal, oral, or anal sex. After exposure, warts may begin to appear within several weeks; or they may take months or even years to appear; or they never appear at all. HPV infected men or women who do not appear to have symptoms are as contagious as persons who have visible warts. However, not everyone who has been exposed to the virus will be infected.

Cancer has countless secondary causes, but the basic cause, not enough oxygen in your cells. The HPV virus converts cells from using oxygen to an anaerobic, no oxygen metabolism. Viruses are anaerobic – they cannot exist in a healthy elevated oxygen environment, Influenza, Herpes, Warts, Measles, Canker (Cold) Sores and HPV are all anaerobic. They exist and grow with little or no oxygen present. Increase cellular oxygen levels and these anaerobic diseases cannot replicate and cannot exist. Lack of oxygen in the tissues, because of constant or chronic inflammation is the basic cause for all degenerative disease.

Lack of oxygen in the tissues is a result of a body that is too acidic and is under continuous stress. The wrong foods for your metabolic type, modern over-processed convenience foods, pesticides, toxic heavy metals, and lack of mineral water can all affect your immune system by making your body more acidic. At Viana Natural Healing Center we evaluate health risks and recommend a personal health program to lessen inflammation and strengthen the immune system. This is important for preventative health, but instrumental in supporting the body under any type of stress.

Although there has been a lot of press coverage about HPV vaccine, it’s protection and side effects are questionable. The vaccine, which has been responsible for several deaths worldwide, hopes to protect young women, and now, men from four different types of HPV virus. So far medical researchers have identified eighteen different HPV types. This is false security.

Once sexually active, a regular pelvic examination with a Pap smear to screen for HPV is key to a sexually active woman’s health. Instrumental for your vaginal and cervical health is to start and continue insisting that a condom be used every time you engage in sex. This not only helps protect from HPV, but healthier for both partners than all alternatives except total abstinence, which may be unrealistic for most of today’s youth. Conditions such as vaginitis and yeast infection usually produce symptoms, while cervical dysplasia or cancers often do not. Gynecological examinations may be used to view the cervix or obtain biopsy tissue and freezing therapy may be used to remove abnormal cervical tissue, but nothing will cure you from the HPV virus.

Get The Point! The bad news is that too many women are still getting cervical cancer and are still dying. This, however, can change for the better if woman and men insist that their sexual partners use condoms. We need to realize that a woman infected with HPV can give another woman, through sexual contact the virus and infected men, who usually do not show symptoms can infect countless women. To protect our health we need to learn more about the health consequences of sexual contact and realize that by being careful it does not mean that you trust your partner any less. Call for an appointment. Let us teach you how to keep cancer and other diseases out of your love life. q
