Dim, Flaxseed, Chckweed
06/01/2012: Aquarelle from West Coast, America: "My naturopath recommended DIM supplements (pill form) in the treatment of ovarian cysts. She recommended it for at least 3 months along with Vitex (chasteberry) to 'reset' my system. DIM is an estrogen blocker, extracted from cruciferous vegetables (like cauliflower) and I've read a few comments suggesting adding those into the diet which is a great idea too.
In addition to this, she suggested I take either ground flaxseeds or psyllium husks daily or on a regular basis in order to flush the system and keep things moving. She said that this is a big help with ovarian cysts.
I can say that a 'complex' cyst that was found back in December had found to be decreased in size in March, and just last week was no longer there. Although I am now also using a Chickweed tincture (as recommended by Susan S. Weed) because I wanted to shrink this cyst, the DIM and vitex are what was in use at the time of this 'shrinking' cyst. So that is promising.
But...they did discover I have a 'new' cyst. And my issue may not be about shrinking them as they come and go, but... How to keep them from recurring. And I believe that perhaps a large part of my issue has to do with stress. I have had my share (haven't we all) as I am also recovering from Adrenal Fatigue.
I looked up 'stress' and 'cysts' online and found a few interesting articles... Of course we all know what stress can do. I believe that this was a big dot to connect as I can pinpoint major stress events and what followed, though it's not a perfect pattern. Just a thought to throw out there. There is so much mystery surrounding ovarian cysts it's really very unfair."
[YEA] 02/05/2014: Caty from St. Louis, Mo: "I have suffered from funtional and dermoid ovarian cysts for many years. the only thing that I have found to help is an herb called false unicorn. After reading up on it, I learned that it has been used for thousands of years to heal and repair the female reproductive system."
Foods to Avoid
08/25/2013: Jw Aka Sand2pearl from Orange Curtain, California: "Question: Is it possible that carrot juice is making my ovarian cyst [aka tumor] bigger?
Starting on 08/04/2013, I began to live primarily on fresh vegetable juice that I make myself and a small amount of legumes [beans, lentils, tofu, and yuba]*. Initially, I started out with juicing 6 red beets, celery, and limes daily. Immediately I was encouraged by how I felt – besides more energy, I literally felt my giant ovarian contracting and softened. All of these feelings were short-lived; soon I felt my waist was expanding. I persisted and on 08/12/2013, I began adding 10-15 glasses of fresh carrot juice PLUS parsley and green apples while decreasing the numbers of beets to 2 – 3 daily. Yet, my ovarian cyst seemed to have hardened, and I felt bloated all the time. I am not giving up this routine, and a few days ago I began drinking apple cider vinegar (2 tablespoons), black strap molasses (1 tablespoon), and cayenne (. 25 to. 5 teaspoon) three times a day.
The fact of the matter is, according to my measuring tape, my waist increased from 33.5” to 35” since 08/04/2013.
What’s going on? Am I just going through a phase [aka shock]?
*I have completely stopped taking all forms of sugar [except for green apples which Ted approves], salt, oil [except for small amount of coconut oil], dairy, meat, animal-proteins, gluten, flour, all the food banned by Ted."Replies
08/26/2013: Be Your Own Doctor from Wellington, New Zealand replies: "It could be possible that the tofu is the cause of your tumour increasing. Soy is reputed to increase tumour growth, therefore not recommended if you have tumours, I found it helpful to cut out soy products when treating my fibroids."

12/25/2012: Pri from Onatrio, On, Ca: "Its been interesting to read on ovarian cysts as I suffer from one..... after having 2 surgeries... can call it mental trauma... and physical one. I have been diagonsed again with 7 cm which I am sure has increased as have not got ultrasound done last 2 years due the fact I'm scared. Now I have met someone who loves me to core and I feel I have a reason to live and survive this... I am glad to have found this website and the hope it gives me is immense...

12/23/2011: Tiara from Pune, Maharashtra, India: "Hi! My thanks to this website and all the members who have shared their remedies for ovarian cysts. I have cysts in both my ovaries for almost 2 years now. I've been taking homeopathy medicines since 8 months due to which the pain has subsided but the cyst remains!!!
I'm gonna try the ACV & Molasses this month and will revert back, hope it works!
Thank you all...."Replies
05/24/2012: Tiara from Pune, India replies: "Hi All! I was taking blackstrap molasses (2 tbl spoons) apple cider vinegar (1 tbl spoon) in glass of warm water, morning & night for 2 months but discontinued later due to travel. Though I continued with some yoga & exactly after 5 months my ovarian cysts have disappeared.
I truly trust the blackstrap molasses & apple cider vinegar & I'm planning to take it on alternate days even though my cysts have gone.
We need to wait to see the effect. Best wishes to all......"

11/02/2010: Lissayvette from Hayward, Ca, Usa: "Can someone tell me how to cure cervical cysts. I dont have medical insurance thru my work and had to have go to the county hospital to get a Pap and the Dr. referred me to have a pelvic sonogram. The nurse called a few days later and told me I have cervical cysts but she didnt know how many or how big and that I couldnt talk to the Dr. by phone or email but I could in person but not until Dec 22 when she made me an appt. I have been bleeding for 3 months about 20 days out of the month and cramping.

Any suggestions on how I can get rid of these holistically.. Organic foods, vitimins etc.. Thanks, Lisa Oh Im 42. 3 kids 19, 16 and 9 and my tubes are tied."Replies
09/24/2011: Christal from Austin, Tx replies: "You could be having the cysts due to the tubes being tied, I have a close friend who got hers tied and apparently its a common side affect, She ended up getting a historectomy( sorry for the spelling)... You need to get on some iodine, bentonite clay (the edible kind, not aztec clay) and change your diet. Raw milk is a must if you can get some do it. EAT MEAT, Our bodies need good fats and I would suggest taking some dandelion root tincture, you can get that at a healthfood store, also take apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses in the milk, for this you take 1 cup Organic or Raw, preferrably raw milk, blend with 1 Tablespoon of Unsulphered blackstrap molasses and drink, immediately after take 1 tablespoon of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, abvoid chocolate and caffeine and I would suggest getting on some good magnesium oil as well, spray onto the bottoms of your feet before bedtime, one to two sprays is sufficient, it will make your feet itch so I suggest getting a lava stone or something to scrub the dead skin off with. Also get on a good multivitamin and make sure your eating PLENTY of DARK LEAFY GREENS, try to eat most of your food raw, of course not meat but you know what I mean, raw fruits and veggies. Hope this helps! You should also go see a Naturopath in your area, they will be able to do much much more"
[WORKED TEMPORARILY] 09/11/2010: Janelle from Austin, Tx, Usa: "I've been struggling with an ovarian cyst that an ultra sound found on my left ovary. I started drinking green tea for a month and the cyst shrunk significantly, I couldn't feel it anymore. However, I stopped drinking the tea and the cyst is back. I also noticed a little cyst on my right breast near my arm, it is painful to the touch so I think its just a swollen node. I've also noticed some swollen lymph nodes under my chin. I'm exercising regularly and loosing some weight, but not too much. I've come to the conclusion that I'm detoxing too fast and my lymph nodes are getting overwhelmed. I've also learned that I have an iodine deficiency that is causing an under-active thyroid, which is causing a hormonal imbalance and slowing my weigh loss. There in lies the reason why my cysts keep coming back and are hindering my success in becoming pregnant. I've been searching for alternative treatments and it looks like I will be taking some sea kelp pills to get the iodine I need to help my thyroid and get the hormones back in balance. I will also be adding the Apple Cider Vinegar 2 teaspoons with 8oz glass of water 3 times a day. I've already ordered some PH testing strips to test my alkalinity and some Apple Cider Vinegar with mother from Amazon. I'll post my results in a couple of months."Replies

[YEA] 09/21/2007: Chel from Toledo, Ohio: "I am suffering with the same problem I found a website that gave a recipe for healing of ovarian cyst that this person says the cyst disappeared in only a few weeks. The purchase of these items cost me about $60 from the health food store.
Ovarian Cyst Tincture
l teaspoon each tinctures of burdock root, vitex berries, red rasberry leaves and motherwort leaves.
1/2 teaspoon each tincturers of prickly ash bark & ginger rhizome.
Combine ingredients. Take a half a dropperful 2 or 3 times daily."Replies
05/31/2012: Aquarelle from West Coast, America replies: "Great herbs; Thank you. I am going to try this.
Susan S. Weed, a well-known herbalist also states that Chickweed tincture (made with fresh chickweed only, not dried) is excellent for shrinking ovarian cysts. It isn't readily available, but I had my local herb store commission an herb grower to make it for me. If you are an expert herbalist type it does grow fresh in many regions, but be sure you know how to identify it should you make your own tincture.
I am going to continue it along with the other herbs you describe."
[YEA] 08/23/2012: Adsy1900 from Arlington, Tx: "The Recipe To Rid The Body Of Ovarian Cyst
Prepare a mixture of 5lb pre cooked beets, 2 lbs of carrots, half a bottle of non alcoholic wine and 2 jars of molasses, by juicing them all together. Take one shot glass before a meal, three times a day for 15 days and then continue with the rest of the batch twice daily, once before breakfast and once before dinner. You will probably find that your cycle is heavy for the first couple of days. Also no alcohol must be consumed during this period. Women who tried this mix found their cysts disappeared within a few weeks."
[YEA] 01/18/2008: Shine from Bethelhem, PA: "Hormone balance almost seems like a life long quest for most women, but I think I found a great cure. It also made my re-occuring ovarian cysts disappear. Kundalini Yoga all the way! It changed my life. Don't be discouraged by fear, most instructors give options for flexibility and experience. You can also take breaks. It will realign your chakras, in-turn balancing your hormones. Once a week will even make a big difference. I also find Siberian Ginseng to be very helpful."

11/10/2013: Vani from Singapore: "Hi, I have 1 cyst measuring 7.8cm in my left ovary and 2 cysts measuring 4.3cm and 4.6cm in my right ovary. I have been taking beetroot, molasses and aloe vera 1st thing in the morning, once a day. I don't feel any changes in the sizes of the cysts so far. but within 3 days after taking this I felt good. I started feeling like increased blood count and it's circulation. and yes inceased energy level. within 6-7 days, pain in ovaries is gone. today is the 10th day of taking this tonic, I woke up at about 4.30am in the morning and am still awake until 11pm. energy level has increased. I have been having only vegetables, wholemeal bread and fish for the past 15 days. no sugar, no rice, no refined flour and no coffee. I have been taking vit B complex and vit C and drinking almost 3 litres of plain water per day, for the past 1 month.
My questions are - is it too early to expect changes in the cysts? I understand that I have to do this treatment for 40 days. at night I started to feel that, the cysts are softer. but by morning they become harder. do I need to change my diet? if I do castor oil pack, do I need to get cold pressed castor oil or normal castor oil will still help to shrink the cysts?"Replies

11/28/2013: Angi from New York, Ny replies: "I had Overian cyst last year and I got completely cured. The only thing I was taking Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda first thing in the morning with empty stomach. I was taking 1/4 tea spoon baking soda and one spoon ACV. It took me almost 9months to complete cure of my overian cyst. I am still taking it couple of times a week to prevent my self. I changed my diet and doing excercise. You can also watch video on you tube for cancer cure they use baking soda. ACV and Baking Soda completely wash out your system or any other digestion problem from inside.

I stumbled upon this site by accident but I will tell you that I have been to many other sites, even You Tube and they all say the same thing. Beets, molasses, and the aloe vera and it's working. Also the castor oil patches. What they also included though (which I did not read as much here) was to eat organic foods especially vegetables and fruits and cut down dramatically your intake of meat until you are healed. If you must eat meat they recommend mostly fish and secondary chicken. I believe that these were your missing elements. Our attitude also plays a very big part in our healing. Kathy believe by faith that you are healed and you will be!"

06/23/2011: Worried Amanda from Tampa, Florida replies: "Here's my story. Im 34, never been married, no kids. Had a laparascopic surgery in 2000 to remove a very large fibroid tumor and at least one cyst as well as some cleanup from very severe endometriosis. I think I got it from my mother. I had it since I was very young. Anyway, after the surgery, for years I took birth control pills nonstop so no further damage could be done. Unfortunately, I developed a blood clot which went to my lungs and nearly killed me. I had my dvt misdiagnosed several times by doctors and by the time it got really bad and I realized what was going on, the clots had infarcted in my lungs and the damage was done. I had since been pretty good but not able to take birth control. Life went on, career success etc.
Last september, I finally met the man of my dreams. We both really want kids one day and hopefully it will work out between he and I to where that will be something we will try for one day. (we are not married) Anyway, just recently I had some serious pain and started bleeding very heavily and not on my cycle. I went back to the same doc who did my surgery in 2000. She did a ultrasound and found a huge cyst the size of a grapefruit on my right ovary. The tests were so hard to see due to scarring, the bleeding, gas etc that they couldnt even see the other ovary. I have now been walking around with a huge mass in my belly and have had stabbing pains. Saw her again yesterday and she said that the cyst has to go and that she would need to do cleanup on severe endometriosis. My organs for reproductivity are still present but I am not sure how possible kids still are. She gave me some hope but I am still very scared. I want a family more than anything. I cannot take hormones to try to shrink the cyst so surgery is my main option. It will happen in 4 weeks unless my pain gets way worse earlier.
I have now started taking a bunch of supplements and am trying the molasses and apple cider vinegar aloe remedy to see if it might help make a miracle. I so want to be a mom :(
Anyone have this bad of everything and still manage to be able to have kids? Im really worried here..."
07/11/2011: London from Sandusky, Ohio replies: "Sweety, try the "water soluble Vitamin E" U get at Walmart. I cant say the name brand here, but its very important to get "water soluble kind, its the only vitamin e that has helped my reproductive system. Take 400 IU 1 to 2 caplets moring and evening. Start with that, a multivitamin, and FOLIC ACID, very, VERY important. Does wonders for your reproductive system. Please wait on the surgery and try the herbal route first, U have nothing to lose at this point. GREENS, greens greens, buy a green supplement (kind of pricey but worth it) and make smoothies or shakes. Also, green tea extract would be good too, along with several cups of Jasmin green tea thru out the day. Change your diet, (ofcourse) more water, and more fruits, veggies, -teas. Herbal suppositories. Research them online. Vaginal suppositories and douches. Ive heard of many women helping themselves with that.
There is a website that I cant say on here, but this website sells a kit to unblock the fallopain tubes. It includes an herbal tampon, and douche(chamomile tea wash) Juicing is also an option. Some women just bombard themselves with herbs to try to get pregnant, but I would do tons of research on the web. There are forums for women trying to get pregnant, that have been successful, just research. Also, there is somthing called the "maya massage", (massaging your abdominal area to get the blood flowing, and break up scar tissue, and there is a dvd available. Altho I would not recommend something so invasive in your state right now. You need to focus on getting that cyst to go down."
09/24/2011: Amy In San Diego from San Diego, Ca replies: "Worried Amanda, I had cyst problems thru out my life. My first daughter I had at 30, I had her early, but no problems. Lost one baby and than I tried for 6 yrs. I had same problems as you. I ended up going to a fert Dr and did IUI (put sperm directly in me past cervix) but I ended up with twins at 36. I wouldn't worry about the getting pg until you get yourself better. By not removing the large cyst you may do more damage to your ovary. I would listen to Dr.Advice. And I have a friend that has only 1 ovary and she still got pg! Life works in strange ways. If I wouldn't have lost my 1 baby I would of never had my twins.. Believe me.. sometimes its worth the wait! I wish you luck."

I thought I was pregnant, as on our son's request for a younger one we were trying. Then, when I took the strip test two times it was negative, the concerns rose. I went to the doc. Who send me for ultrasound, which showed that I have 2 cysts, 1 each in both ovaries and also a fibroid. The doc gave me a paracetamol, a hormone tablet and another tablet for what I don't know. The symptoms persisted and I went for a second opinion to a chinese doc. after going thru the 1st day of acupunture my breast tenderness has gone but yet no relief from the pain and heaviness in the pelvic.
I came across your site and will be trying out the remedies suggested with an open mind. Hoping to be cured at the earliest.
My concern is when will I be having my normal periods again, as I want another baby.
