04/24/2012: Sheila from Rockford, Illinois: "For anyone suffering with cysts, especially near the vagina or anus: I went to doctors for a thick mass halfway between my rectum and vagina. They told me I may have to have it surgically removed. I didn't want that so I searched the net for anything. What I found was quite surprising. OXALATES! Because I had exposure to mold and swallowed fiberglass in the air, my stomach and intestines were damaged. I developed celiacs, terrible sores on my legs, arms buttocks, sores in my mouth. Fevers, swollen lymph nodes. If I had continued to follow DRs non-advice, I KNOW I would be dead now. I was sinking fast. I stopped the gluten but still had terrible muscle aches and the cyst was getting larger and more painful. I found out about the oxalates by reading online for hours. It is in the foods that are most healthy. Spinach, nuts, green foods, sweet potatoes. I went on the low oxalate diet, took calcium citrate and magnesium citrate with my meals and b-6 200 mg a day. Low and behold the cyst began to shrink and the muscle pains started to go away. It HAS to be only the citrate of calcium and magnesium.
Now I wonder if I had this, how many other people have the same thing and don't know it. It causes eye problems, brain fog and lots of pain all over. If this is you try it, it may help you. Or you can go to a doctor and have him take years to diagnose you. I'm a nurse and it is so disappointing to see how long it takes them to figure out what is wrong with you after you spend all of the money. Good luck all! Bless you all and keep trying to find your answers! "
02/19/2013: David Blake from Tallahassee, Fl: "My question is as follows, I have a pilar cyst in my scalp and I am looking for solutions to natural remove the cyst. It seems as though hair grows on top of the cyst and it seems pretty solid in nature. Any information would be helpful."
06/11/2012: Natrum from Flemington, New Jersey /usa: "I had a gum infection and used plantain, just chewed up a bit to get the juices out, then held the plant wad (1-2 leaves) between the cheek and gum overnight. Used it for a few nights. It drew out the infection, and was quite a relief for me. The plantain is a common "weed" you can likely find in your yard. Best to wash it off a bit first, and not source it from too close to a road."
[YEA] 02/05/2009: Madiha from Birmingham, U.K: "Suggestion about lid cysts: I lived in Pakistan for a year when I was a child. I would often get cysts, particularly in the eye area. They were quickly cured by some type of pressure plasters. These were sticky plasters and would come in a large size with many small holes pierced inside. We were given a piece cut to size, peel off the back and place on the problem area. A couple of hours later, from the painfree pressure of the plasters, the cysts would burst and that was that. I live in England now and have had a lid cyst for over two years at least and have not come across an effective cure."
02/11/2013: Mary from Yorks: "Hi my question is for Bill or Ted or any other expert. My friend has a cyst on both testicles. He gave up smoking which helped to a certain degree however he still has a lot of pain with them. The specialist said that if they still continued to bother him he would have to have an operation that would leave him almost certainly 95% infertile. Unfortunately they have got worse and his GP has referred him to the hospital where he says his operation will be in about one month time. I am wondering if it is possible to reduce/eliminate the cysts through diet etc I have seems some remedies on the site but none specific to testicular cysts and to be honest he doesn't really have time for trial and error remedies as he is expecting to be called next month. Any advice would be helpful."Replies
02/14/2013: Joe from Bethel Park, Pa replies: "I would use DMSO mixed 50 / 50 with Lugol's 5% solution.
Apply it locally twice a day. Easy at first.
Be careful, DMSO should not be applied stronger than 70%"

05/29/2012: Bayliboo from Breckenridge, Mn, United States: "For the last 2 months whenever my period is coming I get cyst on my right lower side, inside my vagina. I went to the doctor and they just gave me an antibiotic which I finished but they continue to come back. I have to take a warm bath and put ice on my area to pop them. Is there anything else I can do?"Replies

07/02/2012: Sue from Ottawa, Canada replies: "It is called a Bartholin Cyst. It is often caused by an overgrowth in yeast or candida. I suffer from the same thing but am hoping that a combination of ACV and garlic and acidophilus will help them from coming back."
05/01/2012: Msannanola from New Orleans, La, Usa: "Is the remedy the same for a Pilar Cyst as for other types of Cyst. I have a Pilar Cyst that has recurred on my scalp. I do not want to have my head shaved and cut again. Please help!!! Thanks for everything earthclinic!"
04/26/2012: Flyinghostie from Sydney, Australia: "I have recently been diagnosed with a fibroid. I'm not sure of the exact measurements but I've been told it is the size of a grapefruit. My gyno has a "wait and see" approach.
I have also recently been told I have 3 cysts on my thyroid, and am now waiting to have a needle biopsy and also for the results of my blood tests.
I am a Flight Attendant and wonder if these problems are a result from my work, and the effects of radiation on the body. I am currently Long Haul, and often do flights up to 14hours to South Africa from Australia.
I've read with interest for many years on Earth Clinic, and now am unsure of what my main plan of attack should be? I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance."Replies
04/28/2012: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Flyinghostie... The problems you have are:
* Thyroid cysts
* Fibroid cysts.
You are probably deficient iodine in your body and diet because these are classic symptoms of lack of dietary iodine. Here is some iodine research on thyroid and fibroid cysts and other probems which might interest you:
A Review of the latest Information on Iodine(2005)
Symptoms of Thyroid Problems
The best protocol for your problems would be the Iodine Protocol shown here:
Iodine Protocol with Companion Nutrients
Usually cysts can also form and proliferate because of excess calcium in the body. So cutting out all dairy in the diet and regulating calcium properly by taking higher daily doses of magnesium also should help to cut down the excess calcium in the body (Magnesium is already in the Iodine Protocol by the way). Calcium in excess also inhibits iodine uptake in the thyroid and in the body.
There is also a correlation between the mucus glands in your body and your body's cyst problems. You have mucus glands in your eyes, ears, nose, throat, lungs, uterus, prostate, intestines and breasts. In a healthy person who is sufficient in iodine, the mucus secreted from the mucus glands always contains sufficient iodine. Iodine in the mucus glands in the body is one of the first defenses against external attack by any pathogen. Iodine kills 90% of all pathogens -- including bacteria viruses, fungus and protozoa. So if you are lacking in iodine then pathogens will find it much easier to get past this iodine defense to invade your body. Usually people who lack iodine in their body catch every cold, flu or bug under the sun and then some!!
My own use of higher dose Lugol's for the past five years or so has had some wonderful effects. It helped me to get rid of candida, helped me to lose a lot of weight and gave me back my energy. Since studying iodine for awhile, I now know that iodine controls the development of the brain. From the research, intelligence may directly be correlated to the amount of iodine taken as a child up to the age of 6 years old during which time the brain develops.
Here is another thought which might help you in your job. I was sick and tired (literally!! ) of catching colds and flu and other bugs whenever I caught a plane to go on holiday. So here is how you can avoid this problem and protect yourself against this. Pour out a small capful of water and add about 5 drops of lugol's iodine to the water. Using a dropper, drop this solution and fill both nostrils in turn. Let it soak into the nose area for awhile and then just blow your nose. And that's it -- you now have some iodine in the mucus glands of your nose to protect you against airborn pathogens on the plane. The iodine in your nose will also sublimate and help to protect your throat and lungs as well. If you do this just before you fly then I guarantee you won't catch anything. I used to hate flying because I always caught some bug or other but now I love to fly because I always arrive healthy. This iodine method will also help sinusitis and rhinitis suffers because it rapidly kills the bacteria and the fungus which nest in your nose causing these problems."
04/28/2012: Joyce from Dallas, Tx replies: "Please google ______ Tissue Salts... There are 12 Tissue Salts: Calcium Flouride, Calcium Phosphate, Calcium Sulfate, Ferrum(Iron) Phosphate, Potassium Chloride, Potassium Sulfate, Potassium Phosphate, Magnesium Phosphate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate, Sodium Phosphate and Silica (Aspirin).... These are natural cell salts that our body needs... There are other cell salts like: Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Selenium, Manganese Sulfate, Zinc Chloride and many others... However, the first 12 are the BASIC SALTS that our body needs and when deficient in any of these salts, we will start experiencing ailments... I have been cured from many annoying ailments like hair loss, acne, hemmorhoids, one droopy eyelid, puffy eyelids, uneven facial skin color, yeast infection etc. These Salts have helped so much and some of them right away you will experience releif... There is one Cell Salt - "CALCIUM FLOURIDE"... I know Ted and others say that Flouride and Calcium are not good... But this Cell Salt has helped me greatly and I don't understand why something "Bad" could help relieve me of many symptoms I was having.... GOOGLE IT NOW!!!! ____ TISSUE SALTS."
04/28/2012: Carly from Seattle, Wa - Usa replies: "Hi. I agree with what Bill has said re taking iodine. Iodine is amazing.
I just want to add that you may also want to google "serrapeptase". I just started taking 40,000 iu of it 3x a day (on an empty stomach) for the past week and am VERY impressed with it.
Serrapeptase is good for so many ailments - when you read about it you will think it must be snake oil, it just sounds too good to be true! It breaks down fibrin, and thus eats away bad / scar / cyst type tissue.... oh heck, you simply must google it because I could never explain it well enough.
Good Luck, Carly"
04/22/2012: Sara from Sacramento, Ca, Usa: "Hello, There is a cyst as big as the size of a pea that is growing inside of my Vagina, and it does not have pain, but when I pee, I feel a burning sensation. I do not have health insurance. Please let me know what I need to do at this point."Replies
04/25/2012: Jennifer from Sunrise, Fl, Usa replies: "Sara, these symptoms can be from a number of different problems.
One possibility is chlamydia - I know you don't have health insurance, but in most states you can be checked at a local state-run health clinic for free or go to your local Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood only charges you a reasonable fee on a sliding scale based on your household income.
There are also a number of causes for vaginal cysts and the good news is is that most of them are benign. There are inclusion cysts, Bartholin cysts (which are often a result of chlamydia or gonnorhea), or the worst case/least likely scenario, cancer.
The fact that you are also having burning while urinating raises another red flag for chlamydia. If you have had sexual relations since the last time you were checked for chlamydia, I would get checked again, even if you just need it for peace of mind. You can still get it even if you are careful and use protection. Like I said before, you can get checked for free or very cheap, even without health insurance, and it's no big deal at all, chlamydia can be cleared up quite easily with a round of antibiotics. It sounds scary, but it's actually the most common sexually transmitted disease in the US and it's 100% curable. However, if you don't treat it, chlamydia can lead to some very serious problems, including infertility.
If you rule out chlamydia as a possibility, you really should try to get checked out at a doctor. I know that without health insurance it's hard (trust me I know! I just had an emergency appendectomy and had no health insurance), but depending on your financial circumstances, you might qualify for some kind of public assistance. Depending on your financial circumstances, hospital and medical bills can also be negotiated. Your health is worth it.
Good luck to you, Jennifer"
01/13/2012: Dee from Niagara Falls, Ontario: "I have a cyst on top of my head it is a size of pea. I have tried peroxide, after few day it became painful and I stopped.

12/23/2011: Xlxdemonhunterxlx from Colorado Springs, Colorado, Usa: "Hello all. I have a question about a couple of cysts I have and am hopefully looking to get some good advice on how to maybe get rid of them. I don't have insurance and I don't want to deal with surgery, so I'm wondering if there's a different way to deal with this.
I have 2 cysts, although I'm not sure what kind they are I've never had them looked at. One is just above my elbow on my right arm, the other is well.... On the left side of my penis. Not the most attractive thing. They're both painless and aren't red or swollen or anything, and I've had them both for 5 years. I'm just wondering what type they are, they're both very dark, like a dark green/vein color. I'm not sure what to do about them, I've read up on using heating packs, castor oil and DMSO/Iodide. But without knowing what Type of cysts they are I'm not sure there's much I can do. Any advice really helps, as I'm trying to avoid the doctor and surgery at all costs."Replies
05/22/2012: Xelestial from Orlando, Fl replies: "My doctor (she is in intergrative medicine) gave me this sheet when I mentioned I had two small cysts. I have not tried it yet as the cysts don't bother me, but she said it is from another doctor (can't remember the name) who gave a seminar on cysts, nodules, scar tissue, enlargement and pain.
The paper says eradicate with Idone 50 mg/day (I've been taking that for months already), and Niacinamide 1000 mg/day, and Riboflavin 300 mg/day. Hope this helps someone, I've always had success with whatever insight she offers."
