PAP Smears

The PAP Smear screens for cervical cancer and HPV. Risk factors for developing cervical cancer are smoking, multiple sexual partners, DES exposure, hysterectomy for malignancy, abnormal PAP , and history of sexually transmitted infections (STI). Regarding STI, there are 4 subtypes of Human Papillovirus (HPV) that account for 80% of all invasive cervical cancers, HPV16 and HPV18 are of particular note. Ladies First (2011) adds:

  • History of sexual abuse
  • Immunodeficiency or HIV infection 
  • History of non-adherence of recommended medical care

Discovering Qi Gong

I can not claim to practice Qi Gong diligently, let alone skillfully at this time. But I have become a proponent of after practicing a few exercises for the purpose of writing an article on Chinese medicine for cancer support. Qi Gong has been studied extensively for its benefits not only in palliative care, but also for the actual treatment and remission of cancer. The different forms of Qi Gong have far-reaching benefit that include ameliorating symptoms, improving mood appetite & sleep, increasing self-healing ability, and even inhibiting cancer growth (Chen & Yueng, 2002).
