In today's episode I want to talk about the three most common nutrient deficiencies that I find in my patients who have HPV virus testing positive. Testing positive for HPV is becoming increasingly common, so this information is important for everyone to protect themselves.

So, tune in as we go through:

· HPV Testing and Abnormal Cell Development

· Why Nutrient Deficiencies Make You Susceptible

· Most Common Nutrient Deficiencies in Patients with HPV

· How to Identify and Solve for: Protein Deficiency, Iron Deficiency and Vitamin D Deficiency

HPV Testing and Abnormal Cell Development More and more women are being tested for HPV and finding out they test positive. They then often have to go through various invasive procedures to check for abnormal or even cancerous cell development. In conventional medicine, the only solution is to remove any abnormal cells, but they can't stop the virus from causing recurrent abnormalities.

This is why I research how to help women stop this cycle and avoid HPV-related health issues. Men can also have HPV and related cancers, but currently there is no screening for them. So men, this applies to you too - pay attention to nutrients that make you susceptible.

When I review complex cases of women with recurring abnormalities over decades, I look for why this virus persists. Often there are key nutrient deficiencies making them continually susceptible. Addressing deficiencies empowers the immune system and protects cells, stopping the cycle.

Deficiencies don't show on standard bloodwork, but show in neurotransmitter imbalances and recurrent viral infections and abnormalities. Restoring nutrients strengthens the body to clear infections itself.

The first deficiency I find over and over is a lack of protein in the diet. We focus on getting healthy carbs and fats, but protein often lacks. You need protein with every meal, at least 30g 3 times a day or 20g 4 times a day.

Reasons Protein Deficiency Increase HPV Susceptibility:

1. Without adequate protein and amino acids, we can't make sufficient neurotransmitters to manage stress, which suppresses the immune system.

2. Building a healthy immune system itself requires plenty of amino acids from protein.

How to Identify Protein Deficiency:

1. Track your diet and calculate daily protein intake. Shoot for at least 0.36g per pound of body weight.

2. Low neurotransmitter levels on a urinary neurotransmiiter test can indicate protein/amino acid deficiency. This requires specialized testing.

3. Bloodwork won't show low protein until you are seriously deficient with a major health condition.

Restore Protein Levels: Calculate your needs and include protein at every meal from sources like chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, protein powder, etc. Those on plant-based diets should especially ensure adequate protein intake.

The second nutrient I commonly find deficient is iron. Even those without anemia can still have insufficient iron stores. Measuring ferritin specifically shows your iron levels. Ferritin below 50, especially below 30, is too low. Those with heavy menstrual bleeding are at high risk of low iron.

Iron's Roles:

1. Making red blood cells to carry oxygen for cellular health

2. Supporting immune function

3. Protecting cells

Restoring iron levels helps the body regain control over HPV. Those on plant-based diets often lack sufficient iron as well. Be sure to identify non-heme iron sources and intake levels to avoid this deficiency.

The third common deficiency I see is vitamin D. Many people, especially those living further from the equator with less sun exposure, become deficient in vitamin D. Some absorb or store vitamin D more effectively than others based on genetic factors, so individual testing is important.

Vitamin D is critical for:

1. Bone health

2. Immune function

3. Preventing many types of cancers

Take aways from this episode:

It’s important to consider nutrient deficiencies as contributing to HPV and cervical cancer risk.

Nutrients are not usually checked on standard blood work. It is best to work with an expert who knows which tests to do and how to address them effectively with clinical nutrition.

There are many other factors contributing to risk of HPV related cancers. I teach about them and how to identify and address them in the Heal HPV Worldwide Workshop and Say Goodbye to HPV Program.

By taking your health into your own hands, it is possible to stop HPV virus from causing abnormal cells.

I look forward to your questions and comments and I definitely encourage you to subscribe and join me for the next episode of How Humans Heal so you don’t miss new updates and topic discussions related to overcoming frustrating infections like HPV.

Dec 14, 2023

In today’s episode I interview my friend Tricia Nelson. She is an emotional eating expert, bestselling author and speaker, including a Tedx Talk, based on how she healed herself. She also has her own Heal Your Hunger Show where she helps people break the patterns of emotional eating. 

Her website: https://xj108.isrefer.com/go/quit/DW/ 

Tricia's Emotional Eating Origins

Tricia explains that her emotional eating likely started extremely early, as she has memories of always feeling excited around food. She loved eating, cooking for others, and bonding over meals from very young. When her sister lost weight and called herself an "emotional eater," Tricia initially dismissed it as silly since in her mind, she just genuinely enjoyed all aspects of food.

However, in adolescence, Tricia began gaining weight rapidly, topping out around 50 extra pounds which was really tough. She hated feeling overweight and embarrassed. She tried to deny it at first, but began observing major differences between herself and friends around eating habits. For instance, they would leave half of decadent desserts while she felt intense drive to finish all desserts entirely, even after crossing the point of comfort.

She started frequently overeating significant amounts, like full bags of chips with pints of ice cream, without planning to eat more than a normal portion. This led to feeling painfully over-full and anger afterwards. Still, the cycle continued as the urges overpowered her self-control strengths at the time.

Tricia made consistent efforts from young adulthood into her 30s to try healing her conflicted relationship with food, that she finally accepted was complicated for her. She turned to restrictive diets, intensive exercise plans, various pills and potions, therapy appointments, 12 step programs and more. But the patterns continued and her weight fluctuated up and down wildly - losing large amounts when sticking to plans initially through deprivation tactics, but inevitably regaining the weight each time.

With the help of a mentor, Tricia learned skills to deal with the deep emotions that drove her overeating. This helped much more than short-lived willpower alone. From her own transformation, she developed the Heal Your Hunger Program.

It is a step-by-step program to guide people to change emotional eating patterns from inside themselves instead of strict dieting. The focus helps build sustainable abilities like self-soothing, self-worth, and listening to body signals.

By learning new skills for self-care and tuning into needs, Tricia gained long-term balance around food. Her weight stabilized at a healthy point by addressing root causes. She inspires

hope for overcoming food struggles through overall wellbeing versus extreme restriction that never lasts.

Signs of Emotional Eating

Tricia notes that occasionally overindulging isn't necessarily concerning on its own. However consistent loss of control around food intake coupled with negative consequences sets up an “emotional eating” dynamic.

Major red flags include:

· Feeling extremely frustrated and conflicted about your habitual relationship with food.

· Frequently overeating far past fullness, stomach discomfort or what your mind knows is enough.

· Weight erratically fluctuating up and down over spans as short as weeks or months.

· Requiring different sized clothes on standby to accommodate rapid weight gains and losses.

· Struggling to stick to any healthy eating plan or program for more than days or weeks time.

Overeating exists on a spectrum from mild to severe. For example, overdoing it once on vacation is relatively harmless. But full addiction with severe health and life impacts is the extreme. Figuring out where your struggles land on this range can inform next steps.

Tricia offers a quiz to reveal your specific habits, history and challenges. This helps identify suitable support approaches. However, she stresses self-compassion is essential. Why? Because emotional eating unconsciously starts as a coping mechanism, even when not healthy long-term.

Emotional Eating Roots and Personality

Tricia stresses that emotional eating arises from lifestyle patterns and personality traits at the core - not from a lack of education on nutrition fundamentals as most assume.

Some of these patterns include:

· People pleasing – a strong need to make others happy. It often leads to overgiving - doing too much for others while neglecting our own needs. Over time, overgiving drains our energy and builds resentment. When stressed, it's common to crave sugary "treats"

as a fast way to boost our mood. The thinking becomes "I deserve this because I do so much for everyone else." This people-pleasing trap fuels unhealthy emotional eating.

· Poor boundaries with overdoing – we often go past healthy limits while trying to get everything done. We make long to-do lists and feel we must finish them, even if it becomes too much. Pushing too hard prevents us from recharging properly. Going full speed for too long raises stress. Then we crave quick food energy to help us keep coping with an overloaded schedule. This unhealthy pattern happens when we don't set reasonable limits and listen to signals that we need rest.

· Perfectionism and self-criticism – setting extremely high expectations for yourself. Self-criticism means always judging yourself harshly. These traits lead to anxiety as the inner critic berates your efforts. To temporarily quiet the critical inner voices, it’s common to reach for sugary treats or other substances. This provides short-term soothing and distraction from the high pressure of perfectionism.

For many people, patterns of using food to self-soothe start indirectly from difficult childhood experiences. Trauma or adversity in childhood shapes automatic responses that last through life. Food gives needed comfort when young.

However, this coping habit backfires long-term. Over the years, it can lead to health issues, shame, and low awareness of what inner emotions trigger stress eating. We lose touch with what fuels the behavior when we overly rely on eating to help push through challenges.

Making progress on unhealthy patterns requires self-compassion, not self-criticism. We need understanding for how early life shaped automatic responses, not judgment of current struggles resulting from past wounds. Healing starts with recognizing how innocently coping habits began before taking hold through life.

Cultivating Balance through Self-Care Rituals

Self-care rituals can help create balance around food relationships holistically.

These include:

· Daily meditation to reduce anxiety and connect spiritually.

· Reading personal growth or spiritual literature to positively feed the soul.

· Journaling for self-awareness and emotional healing.

· Light exercise like walking outside daily for activity without adrenal burnout.

· Getting support from others.

Starting healthy rituals builds mental resilience over time. It creates new response paths in the brain for handling stress. This counters the automatic habit to grab quick comfort foods when

under pressure. Those foods may have soothed in the moment before but now mainly cause health problems.

These new rituals are better alternatives to high-calorie, salty/sweet snacks. Things like taking time to meditate, set boundaries, or do emotional healing work. They provide true nourishment long-term versus just a momentary sugar-rush bandaid.

The key is slowly reducing reliance on unhealthy food options while starting to incorporate meaningful self-care habits. Balancing both sides - limiting old patterns and cultivating new wellbeing practices - helps make change stick.

Navigating Social Pressures Skillfully

There are effective ways to avoid peer pressure, especially during the holidays. For example:

· Practice politely saying “no thank you, I’m good” without feeling pressured to provide lengthly personal explanations or excuses.

· Remind yourself persistently that others’ visible surprise or questioning of your choices stems from their own inner mental and emotional processes - it’s not your responsibility to sooth their discomfort or change deep habits in the moment.

· For tense situations, gently complimenting the speaker on their cooking efforts often allows to exit the situation smoothly.

The key is setting healthy boundaries for yourself while respecting others may make different choices.

You always deserve to listen to your body and say no to foods that don’t align with your health, even if others have different habits or opinions. You get to choose what fuels your body in line with your needs and goals.

In short, stand confidently in your own truth and respectfully allow others theirs, even when they question your path. Decline offering foods if your body says no, regardless of another’s perspective or traditions. Select nourishing options serving your personal health journey.

Understanding and Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Tricia explains how regular sugar and artificial sweeteners can be extremely addictive and harmful. She reveals how powerfully they hook the brain and damage health, often quietly without people noticing. Even fake sugars can fuel sugar cravings rather than reduce them.

Tricia created a 5-day “quit sugar challenge” to help break this addiction. It offers step-by-step education, coaching to build resilience, and healthy sweet alternatives that won’t hook the brain.

This enables people with strong sugar cravings to still enjoy delightful flavors. Participants make tasty foods like chocolate pancakes and paleo fudge bars without causing energy and mood swings from blood sugar spikes and crashes.

This program helps change your tastes so you want less sugar. It strengths your inner voice to make better choices for yourself, without doubting your worth. The program quiets the inner critic inside all of us that sabotages our goals. Making this small but powerful shift steadily cuts sugar cravings over time. This allows you to better hear your body’s own wisdom about what healthy foods it needs most.

Going through this short sugar detox program has been shown to help people who eat emotionally to break their sugar addiction. It helps stop cravings and energy crashes related to sugar highs and lows. By clearing sugar from your system for a short period, it becomes easier to tune into what your body specifically needs, rather than just craving sugar. This opens the door to understanding and responding to your unique body’s signals, instead of overriding them with sugary foods.

As mentioned above, emotional eating normally develops early as a coping mechanism to provide comfort or quick distraction from any form of suffering or trauma during our childhood. It is critical for surviving traumatic and challenging experiences we went through while growing up.

At first, emotionally eating sugary foods feels like it gives relief. But for most people, over time it backfires. It becomes an unconscious habit to reach for sugar to feel better, without thinking. Quickly, this can grow into a full-blown dependence on sugar and unhealthy substitutes.

True healing starts with self-compassion. We need to acknowledge that this coping mechanism started innocently before taking over. Looking carefully at contributing factors, like people-pleasing tendencies, allows us to respond differently moving forward. We can consciously choose self-care rather than falling into numbing or depriving habits.

Establishing new rituals like setting boundaries, meditating, emotional healing, and reading uplifting material can slowly override automatic unhealthy drives. With commitment to daily practice, limited backsliding, and community support, whole life transformation happens from the inside out.

Thousands now live free from food obsession through Tricia’s practical, spiritual guidance. Her method helps replace unconscious emotional eating with conscious self-care.

Dec 7, 2023

Hi, I'm Dr. Doni Wilson, and today I want to talk about HPV—or human papillomavirus—and specifically the five foods to stop eating if you're working on fending off HPV.

The Issue with HPV

Here's the thing: We are most all exposed to HPV virus at some point in our lives. That includes men and women. And certain strains of HPV are associated with cancer risk. So, to find out that HPV is positive, which often happens when women go to get a pap smear, and more often are being tested for HPV and being told that it's positive, it can be quite scary.

My Experience Helping Women

So that might be why you're listening to this video freaking out thinking, "Oh my gosh, I'm HPV positive," or "HPV keeps showing up positive," or even that the HPV is causing abnormal cells on your pap smear or worse. And you feel like you just want to get out of this situation and get rid of this virus as fast as possible. And I understand—I help thousands of women every year to do exactly that in my practice.

What I find is even women who've been following my protocol for months—because oftentimes women who follow my protocol even within three months will find that HPV goes to negative—but sometimes if it hasn't gone away within six months and I go back, and we start digging, and we say, "What is still making this person susceptible to HPV?"

How Dietary Changes Can Help

I'm a naturopathic doctor and midwife, and I've been helping women to address HPV virus for over 23 years. And one of the best ways to do that—to actually help your body, your immune system protect you from this virus—is by making dietary changes.

Now, of course the conventional medical system and most medical practitioners are not trained in nutrition. And so they are not aware of the potential of dietary changes to help your body fend off HPV. But I'm here to tell you and report back to you from all the patients who've worked with me that making dietary changes absolutely can make a difference.

And women every week are coming back to me telling me how their pap is now negative and the HPV is negative. And not only that, but it's staying negative over years, over a period of time. So this is why I feel so motivated to be able to share this information.

An Effective Dietary Protocol

I have a whole protocol that I use in my practice. But today I want to focus on the top five foods that I see make the biggest difference when women are able to take them out of their diet—for at least a period of time until the HPV goes to negative.

#1 - Refined Sugar

So, the first food on that list is really something that's usually an ingredient in foods, and that's sugar. And when I say sugar, I'm referring to refined sugar like a spoonful of white sugar or brown sugar. That's the kind of sugar that we're talking about. I'm not talking about sugar necessarily from natural sugars, say from fruits and vegetables. We want to have some fruits and vegetables in our diet.

But refined sugar can reduce immune system function for hours after you consume it. So if you're having sugar even once a day—a spoonful of sugar or equivalent to that—then it's going to be reducing your immune system's ability to protect you from all different infections, including HPV.

Now just imagine if you're having sugar in your diet multiple different times of day—it's continually reducing your immune function. And a lot of times sugar is in our diet and our beverages without us realizing it.

So I encourage you to take a closer look at the food you're eating—even your protein shakes, even beverages that you think might be healthy. It's worth it to take a look at the ingredients. And if you see sugar, or sugar cane, or sometimes sugar comes in as other names like dextrose and sucrose, these all mean sugar.

If there's sugar in your food—in your sometimes it's in processed food, sometimes it might be food that you're grabbing on the go, or your morning coffee or latte maybe containing sugars—these sugars are reducing your immune function and making you susceptible to HPV, as well as other health issues. So number one is to start really paying attention to sugar and start reducing it in your daily intake.

#2 – Gluten

OK, number two, to me, is gluten. Remember, I've been at this for a couple of decades. And I do very specific testing with my patients to identify issues with gluten—specifically gluten sensitivity. And in some cases, we're also testing for celiac disease if we see severe symptoms and severe signs of gluten issues.

And what I consistently find over and over again, case after case with HPV and abnormal pap smears, is gluten sensitivity. Actually, at least one out of four of us has gluten sensitivity. I think it's actually more common than that.

Humans in general just don't digest gluten very well. Gluten is in rye, barley, spelt, wheat, and anything that has wheat in it—not just whole wheat, but it could be anything made from wheat or rye, barley, spelt has gluten in it.

And so you might be getting gluten again numerous times a day if you're having something made from wheat or containing gluten for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You're getting gluten multiple times a day. And gluten for everyone is inflammatory.

Gluten is known in research to cause something called leaky gut, which is damage to the intestinal cells. And this is really important when it comes to HPV. And you might be wondering why. Because you're like, "Well, the HPV is in the vagina.” It also, by the way, can exist in the anal rectal area and oral area."

But most times we're identifying it in the vaginal area. And yes, there is a connection between your digestion and your vaginal area. So if you're consuming gluten and it's causing inflammation and causing damage to your intestinal cells—that's causing inflammation to circulate around your whole body, including to the vaginal area.

Gluten also disrupts the bacteria in the digestive tract. This is well established in research. And I can share the references. When we have disrupted bacteria in our digestion, it is known to disrupt the microbiome vaginally. And this is another way that gluten makes us susceptible to HPV.

So you'll notice in my language I'm talking about susceptibility to HPV. It's not just about exposure. Remember, most all of us are exposed to this virus, but it only has the opportunity to cause abnormal cells in a certain percentage of the population. What's different about that percentage of the population? Well, one thing could be that those people are more susceptible to inflammatory changes and microbiome changes due to gluten exposure.

And so what I recommend with women who work with me in my practice is we test for food sensitivities and find out if gluten is an issue. And then we start eliminating gluten from their diet, and we start to see major changes in their health—not just HPV—but so many things improve about their health, including their digestion and their skin and their hair and their hormones and their energy and their focus and their sleep.

So much more improves. So, yes, you could just start to eliminate gluten from your diet. I think that is a good place to start. And then if you really want to know more about whether you have leaky gut and are there other foods to avoid, I would recommend doing a food sensitivity panel. And I will put a link to the test that I recommend.

#3 – Dairy

OK, so number three—and this also comes back to the food sensitivity panel and what I see as major food problems for women who are experiencing HPV—and that's dairy products,

including anything made from cow's milk except butter. Butter is usually is OK, but anything else made from cow's milk—from yogurt, cheeses, even whey protein powders—is an issue because of the proteins in dairy, not the sugar.

The sugar in dairy is called lactose, and some people are not able to digest lactose and may experience digestive issues from it. That's not so much the issue for HPV. With HPV, the issue is the dairy proteins—casein and whey. And so if you're consuming dairy products—even if you just have milk in your coffee or even if you just have cheese every so often—it could be an issue when it comes to HPV, because it's inflammatory.

The inflammation dairy causes in the digestion then spreads throughout your whole body. And it makes you susceptible to infections. A lot of times people who have dairy sensitivity also are prone to sinus infections and skin issues, but absolutely can make you more prone to HPV.

And this is a thing, then, with the HPV—which normally our bodies can clear and get rid of—it sticks around longer and it has more chance to cause abnormal cells.

#4 – Eggs

OK, so number four, which I think might surprise you, is eggs. Now, a lot of people don't realize that they're reacting to eggs. And I'm not just talking about egg yolks. I'm talking about egg whites. And the issue is that once leaky gut exists—once the intestinal cells are not as healthy as they should be, which happens when we're exposed to stress and toxins and gluten—we end up with leaky gut.

And then eggs, which we all think are healthy and we eat eggs—a lot of women I talk to are eating eggs almost every single day—the eggs are leaking through the intestinal lining undigested. And that egg protein is then triggering an immune response because the immune system thinks it needs to protect you from this foreign protein. That's what our immune system does. It protects us from a foreign proteins.

So when egg protein comes through, the immune system is busy trying to protect you from it and it's not doing as good of a job protecting you from the HPV virus. So one way to know for sure if you're reacting to egg or egg whites in particular is to do the food sensitivity test I recommend, which is from a lab that I've been working with for many years.

I have cross tested it with other labs. I constantly review other food sensitivity panels. And what I find is that this particular lab gives us the clearest results—the clearest information to know for sure if you need to eliminate eggs from your diet.

Now, I want to make sure while we're talking about dietary changes for you to understand that it's not going to be necessary for you to avoid these foods forever. A lot of people worry, "Oh my gosh, how am I going to avoid these foods the rest of my life in order to protect myself from HPV?" But that's not necessary.

Because once we help your body to heal—once we help your body to heal leaky gut, restore healthy digestive function and microbiome and healthy immune function—then in most cases you're able to add these foods back into your diet.

So I'm not suggesting, that you need to avoid these foods forever. I'm suggesting that these are foods that are common in our diet that are actually making us more susceptible to HPV virus. And if we can identify that specifically for you and eliminate those foods from your diet while we heal your digestion, heal your body, rebalance your immune system—you're going to be better able to protect yourself from HPV going forward, even if you reintroduce those foods to your diet.

#5 – Alcohol

So the fifth food I want to talk about is really a beverage, and that is alcohol. What we discover is that women who drink alcohol on a regular basis are more susceptible to HPV. And I’m talking about any type of alcoholic beverage—liquor, beer, wine, or any other beverage containing alcohol. All forms of alcohol reduce immune function.

if you have one drink a week, it is probably not enough to be an issue, but if you're finding yourself having, let's say, two glasses of wine or having one or two glasses of wine more than once a week, then it could be making you more susceptible to HPV.

And it's when women finally do make the commitment to taking alcohol out of their diet, out of their life for a period of time—sometimes for three to six months—along with doing everything else in my protocol including supplements and suppositories, they finally are able to get HPV to go away.

Again, my goal is to help your immune system learn how to protect you from HPV. It doesn't mean you're going to have to forever avoid alcohol. At the same time, women often report to me that they feel so good without these foods and alcohol and sugar in their diet. They end up realizing, "Wow, I feel so much better. My energy is better, my mood is better, my sleep is better, my skin is better—everything is better! Why would I want to go back to eating and drinking all the things I was eating and drinking before that were making me not feel so good?”

When I guide women to follow a maintenance plan, we figure out what you're going to continue now that you've transformed not only your health related to HPV, but you’ve transformed your life. You become empowered about protecting yourself from HPV-related cancer as well as many other health issues.

At that point you can reevaluate what you want to bring back into your diet and your life—even potentially on an occasional basis—but knowing that you're the one who gets to decide what you're eating. You're the one who gets to decide what you're drinking. And you're the one who gets to be in control of your health and your ability to protect yourself from HPV as well as other health issues.

Thank you so much for joining me. If this video was helpful, I'd be happy to hear about it. Please like and subscribe. And definitely join me for the next video where I'll soon be sharing more tips about protecting yourself from HPV.
