Natural Treatment for HPV? AHCC Eradicates HPV Virus in Women
Before we look at the study, though, what exactly is HPV? What is AHCC?
According to the Centers for Disease Control, these high-risk versions of the virus are responsible for around:
- 99% of cervical cancers
- 95% of anal cancer
- 60% of oropharyngeal cancer
- 65% of vaginal cancer
- 50% of vulvar cancer
- 35% of penile cancer
Because of its strong connection with various forms of cancer, HPV has been a major source of concern for healthcare professionals. As mentioned, though, prevention was the strongest form of defense known.
A recent study, however, hints at an exciting new use for AHCC as a natural treatment for HPV.
A clinical pilot study conducted by Dr. Judith Smith and funded independently by UTHealth Medical School at Houston evaluated ten HPV-positive women with half the group taking 3g of AHCC once daily for 1-3 months and half for 3 up to 6 months. At the end of the 3 to 6 month trial, five of the women achieved a negative HPV test result during the study– three with confirmed eradication after stopping AHCC!
Based on these positive preliminary results, the research is already moving on to the second phase – a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled cross-over human study at UTHealth Medical School at Houston. If you are interested in enrolling, please click here.
While this field of study is still in the early stages of its development, the results seem promising that AHCC could be a natural treatment for HPV infections.
