5 Foods That Fight Cervical Cancer

By Brandi Goodman 

With January deemed Cervical Cancer Awareness month, it's important to take a look at just how women everywhere can fight against it the other 11 months as well. A healthy diet and adequate water intake is the best place to start. At least five foods exist that work to fight cervical cancer and reduce symptoms due to the antioxidant properties and many nutrients they provide. 

Sweet Potatoes

Many yellow and orange fruits and vegetables contain beta-carotene. This antioxidant can prevent and treat several variations of cancer, including cervical. Sweet potatoes are one of the greatest sources of beta-carotene that are worth adding to your diet. They are much healthier than regular potatoes and can be enjoyed baked or mashed. It's important to consume the outer skin portion as well. Many of the nutrients are found there.


Dark leafy greens offer folic acid. Folic acid helps in the building of new cells. These new cells can help to push out the damaged, toxic cells that are causing the cervical cancer and other diseases within the body. Spinach is an ideal source of other vitamins as well, such as Vitamin E. This vitamin works toward improving healthy cell function. 


Carrots contain lots of nutrients that aid in the fight against diseases. The antioxidants found in this vegetable are especially helpful in the battle against cervical cancer because they target the human papilloma virus. HPV is a common cause of cervical cancer. Having a diet rich in foods that target this disease is a major hep. 


Apples provide a hefty dose of Vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant that can fight off disease within the body. Many people up their Vitamin C intake when they have a common cold, not realizing that the nutritional value from it can help other ailments as well, including cervical cancer. An apple a day keeping the doctor away is a valid saying because of this. 


Protein is necessary to heal the body and repair damaged tissues. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, making them vital to eat during a battle with cancer of any kind. Lean meats and low-fat dairy products, such as yogurt, are also vital.                                        

Cervical cancer, or any form of cancer for that matter, can be fought. A healthy diet is going to work wonders in combating symptoms and reducing the size of the toxic cells within the body. Combine this with exercise, regular check-ups with a doctor, and even chiropractic care that can help reduce stress levels and boost the immune system, and you are on the right track toward improving overall well-being. 

Be sure to complement your doctor's care with food that can give you the best chance of beating cervical cancer.
