Can i use honey instead of Molasses for this remedy?? for what period i have to continue this remedy? Is it necessary to do drink this juice in morning ?"
01/22/2010: Mandy from Nj, Usa replies: "Hey Dj, thanks for your response.i am curious about how castor oil pack will work? does it actual dissolve the cyst? from where i can get castor oil pack? thanks in advance."
07/08/2010: Kelsie from Washington, Usa replies: "Hi Dj,
Is the Red Raspberry tincture made from the leaves, the berries, or both? And is it from the common/garden Raspberry plant, or from the family (raspberry, salmonberry, thimbleberry, etc.) in general? I take a tea of one or two whole dried Thimbleberry leaves for menstrual 'bloating' (or it could be cramps or both, I'm not sure); I'm curious if a Thimbleberry tincture would also possess the pain-relieving qualities outside of the menses that you mentioned. Do you think it would be harmful to take for pain caused by ovarian cysts?

[YEA] 04/17/2009: Brittany from Phoenix, Arizona: "The beets, aloe vera, and molasses really worked for me. I have suffered in pain for years with ovarian cysts. My life and marriage were not good before. Now since I have been doing the beets, aloe vera, and molasses in the morning before I eat anything else, life is so much better. With all three ingredients you put all equal amounts in a small bowl. I first mash the beets (1 or 2 slices of the canned beets) with a fork. Then pour about a tablespoon full of aloe vera juice on top of that. Then I take about a tablespoon full of molasses and cover that, mix it, then eat it. You don't have to have a blender to mix it. I have never liked the taste of beets, but this has helped me a lot. All of this is about a shot glassful. I wish I had found this years ago."Replies

If using raw or slightly steamed beets, just grate them on a cheese grate. Use gloves."

02/04/2009: Tess from Palm Beach, FL replies: "It's been a year and a half since she posted this ovarian cyst concoction, so it doesn't appear that Julissa is going to write us all back any time soon!
I am guessing that this recipe is: a standard dose of molasses, i.e., 1 to 2 tablespoons (but be careful if you are diabetic, watch the sugar content), 1/3 cup of beets, and 1/3 cup of aloe vera juice. Beets can make people very nauseous if eaten on an empty stomach, so start out with less if the beets are fresh. Canned beets might not cause nausea.
Ladies, experiment and write us back with your dosages and recipes! We're on our own!!"
03/13/2009: Diane from Utica, New York replies: "i recently found out that i have a cyst 8 centimers in size on my left ovarie..that is about the size of an orange. it is causing me to bloat and i am in pain.. the doctor says wait a month and see if it is any larger..im missing work..i bled for a month straight , clotting and very heavy flow.i was wondering about the beets in the recipe..do i put all the ingredients in a blender , as beets are not liquifid ...or just use the beet juice from a can of beets..please let me know , as i am desperate to start some kind of remedy to alliviate this cyst.i am also having anxiety now and losing sleep, whichi is heightening my pain..any cures for that besides drugs..i would appreciate anybodys input."
03/15/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Diane from Utica, NY,
If you google SSKI or saturated solution of potassium iodide, pull up Dr. Wright's article which mentions the Tahoma Clinic. Read what he has to say about getting rid of cysts with SSKI."
03/16/2009: Gean from Salina, KS replies: "This is a question for Joyce regarding SSKI. I bought some liquid potassium iodide at the health food store, which says 150 mcg iodine per 2 drops. (The ingredients are purified water and potassium iodide). This is a lot weaker than SSKI, but might it still work on cysts, mixed with DMSO? Thank you."
04/02/2009: Michelle from Bronx, New York replies: "Hi, Ladies
I am trying this remedy and a majority of my friends with cysts did as well and all have living proof within 2 months by sonograms and all of them could'nt conceive since this is a major barrier but they have their babies without any complications. I prepared 2lbs of raw beets well peeled and chopped, the aloe vera will be one entire part washed and peeled what you take is the inside part, (also you can try it with carrots instead of aloe vera is good as well) 1 full bottle 12oz of molasses ( I use imported dominican one that can be found in a botany but when I don't find any I use grandma's brand original molasses). Blend all ingredients and drain mixture through a strainer, place it in a closed gallon or bottle and refrigerate. Let it rest until the next morning and drink one full glass empty stomach and after each meal( do not exceed 3 glass a day).
After 2 months I will post my results as well, Good luck to all of us."

EC: You might get some ideas where to look for molasses in India here: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/molasses8.html#WHEREBUYMOLASSES
04/03/2009: Gean from Salina, KS replies: "How much aloe vera exactly? By one part do you mean one leaf, and if so, how large a leaf? Measurement by cups or weight would be helpful. Also, would aloe vera juice work the same? For the daily dosage, would this be three 8 oz glasses per day? Thank you."
04/04/2009: Marths from Powderspring, Ga replies: "Does anyone have the exact measurement of everything you take? Are Cyst and Fibroids about the same? I am looking for something for Fibroids tumors, but I a am willing to try anything that I think will help shrink these fibroids. Any information you have will help. Please send exact measurements. The aloe vera, can this be found in the vegetable area in the health food store. Is this a detox? Please send more information. Thanks to everyone for sharing their information. Martha in Powder Spring GA"
04/14/2009: KT from Irvine, Ca, USA replies: "Hello ladies, I'd say, don't feel lost. We have a big clue about the Ingredients, we can always experiment with dosage using common sense, I'd say, half a cup of beet juice mixed with 1 tblsp. of Molasses and a tsp. or 2 of aloe vera edible jel or half a cup of aloe vera juice, mix and drink. Good health food stores also sell Beet capsules or find them online. Beet juice is also available. I am taking both with Molasses. Oh, and not everyone is suited to Aloe Vera, you can be allergic, apply it on your body part to see if you develop a rash, test for a week. If not, AV is safe for you. Since I am allergic to it, I am skipping it. Whatsmore, I found an article on this Dominican remedy which only mentions Beet & Molasses, not Aloe Vera. So there's hope. I think the Main ingredient here is Beet. Check this article out -
And do post any positive results after trying this nutritious remedy. God bless Julissa for posting it."
07/12/2009: Mary from Golden, CO replies: "I suffered from cysts during my late 20's up to the time I had a partial hystarectomi! I did have two children, but had a hard time getting pregnant. Now that I'm in my mid 50's I am experiencing ovarian pain again, I still have the right ovari. I am going to try the beets/aloe vera/mollases to see if this helps. I never have and will NOT take any drugs - ever! I'll keep you posted. I like the 'shot glassful' recepie of 2-3 slices of beets, 1 Tbsp Aloe Vera, and 1 Tbsp of molasses."
[YEA] 11/16/2009: Cured from Ft. Walton Beach, Fl replies: "I have to say that I believe it is the molasses doing the trick here. I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar daily. A few weeks later I started the Blackstrap Molasses. I had suspected a cyst for the last year. If you have ever had one, you know what they feel like espcially if you have had them removed via surgery. Anyways, I was taking both ACV and BSM. About a week after starting the BSM I had a constant stomach pain that lasted two days. I knew that this was the cyst busting. I am glad the ACV was helping with pain as I am sure it would have been excruciating to experience another cyst bust. I hope you find something that works for you as surgery is not a fun option."
01/19/2010: Jenn from Union, Nj replies: "Hi Cured.
I have 3.5 cm cyst on left ovary. doctor diagnosed it with endometrioma cyst. Surgery is not urgent as per my doctor. i am planning for baby. do you think ACV and BSM will work with endometroma cyst? or Beet, aloe vera juice and molasses is good option? Anyone can you please advise? Thanks..."
03/11/2010: Tianna from Bronx, Ny replies: "I was diagnosed with 2 3cm cysts on my left ovary last weekend and my doctor said that if in 6 months I still cant conceive, ill need to undergo another surgery (which i had 3 years ago when they found 5cm and 7cm cysts on each ovary!). I definitely dont want to undergo surgery again so I am trying other natural remedies to get rid of them.
I started drinking apple cider vinegar in the mornings mixed into a glass full of water. We've also switched to alkaline water as well. And just to be sure, I made some beet, molasses and aloe vera juice yesterday.
I bought 6 beets (about 2.5lbs worth of beets), a whole aloe vera leaf and a box of powdered molasses (there were liquid ones too but i saw the sugar-like one first). I peeled the beets and put them in our juicer. Mixed in the inside of the aloe vera leaf (which looks like a clear gel) and then chucked in half the box of the molasses. I drink 1/2 cup in the morning and another 1/2 cup at night! And the rest goes in the fridge.
Hope this works... ill post my results when i go for another scan!"
03/11/2010: Patti from Ewing, Nj Usa replies: "I did a lot of reading (because it fascinated me) about Serrapeptase. I'm not sure if I'm spelling that correctly but I was researching some other "female" problems and ovarian cysts came up. There seemed to be a lot of women who were taking this enzyme (I believe it's an enzyme) and they were able to get rid of the cysts. It took some time, it didn't happen over night, but they were all pleased about avoiding surgery. You may want to do an internet search to see what you find on it. And good luck.
[YEA] 08/12/2010: Tiana from Bronx, Ny replies: "I drank the beetroot juice concoction for about 2 months... Drank apple cider vinegar for about 3 months... And we still drink alkaline water. I'm happy to report that I am 4 weeks pregnant! I'm scheduled to undergo a scan next week and I'll also find out what happened to those cysts... Apparently they were no longer a hindrance to conception -- so I'm really glad! I'm curious to find out if they have shrunk or disappeared and will update again after next week! Thanks again for these natural remedies to eliminate cysts! They must work-- because the cysts were causing fertility problems for me and I'm pregnant now!"
[NAY] 08/17/2010: Tiana from Bronx, Ny replies: "I just got back from my scan at the ob-gyn's. I'm definitely pregnant... But the cysts are still there on the right ovary. They didnt shrink-- they are still the same size so I guess the beetroot juice/ alkaline water/apple cider vinegar combo didnt eliminate them!"
[YEA] 01/16/2011: Charlotte from Marion, Illinois replies: "I had ovarian cysts, 3 of them, about tennis ball sized that caused significant pain. As they were dermoid cysts they had to be removed surgically. A few months after the surgery, I began feeling the similar abdominal/lower back pain once again. I went in for an ultrasound to verify, and yes, I did have ovarian cysts (they believed these to be follicular cysts). I found an online article claiming that drinking aloe vera juice mixed with beets and molasses every morning could help shrink tumors and prevent their recurrence.
This was about 6 months ago. It works!!! As long as I keep drinking the concoction daily, I am pain/bloat free! Sometimes I get lazy and stop drinking it; and the pain slowly returns until I begin drinking the mixture again.
When I first began drinking the mixture, I noticed small improvements within a week, noticeable improvements within two-three, and was virtually pain-free within a month.
In separate studies, both aloe vera juice and beets have been shown to cause a reduction in tumors-both cancerous and benign. The compound in beets which gives them their dark red pigment works within the body to cut off blood flow to tumors/cysts over time, which causes them to stop growing and shrink. The aloe vera juice helps to flush out the system and the liver from toxins. Taking them in combination works beautifully. I'm not 100% sure how the molasses helps.
I read about this "cure" online, researched the claims in peer-reviewed medical journals, and then proceeded to try it for myself. It worked for me. I just wasn't willing to accept that the only way for me to live pain-free was to take drugs everyday and have multiple surgeries!!"
01/28/2011: Ew from Rockville, Md, Usa replies: "Charlotte, thanks for pointing out the benefits of aloe vera and beets. I'm the opposite-- I understand the benefits of molasses but don't know why beets and aloe vera would be helpful. Do you have a link to the studies?
I've been taking the unsulphured blackstrap molasses for 2 months now. I'm lazy about the beets and not taking aloe vera at all. I think the molasses supplies some missing nutrients, because pain during my cycle has decreased a lot while my energy has increased. I haven't been going to the doctor, and I don't feel that there's been significant shrinkage to the cyst. With your encouraging testimony, I'm going to add the beets and aloe vera as well.
Earthclinic's molasses page describes some of its benefits. There's also a book solely dedicated to stories of healing from molasses"
[YEA] 09/10/2013: Ann from St. Louis, Mo: "I found out that I have bilateral ovarian cysts after getting a CT scan to see if kidney stones had returned. I researched online and began a whole foods diet with no sugars (other than what is found in fruits) and no white flour. I also began using iodine on my skin once in the morning and once at night as iodine deficiency was said on one sight to be a factor in cyst development. I also began drinking Echinacea tea two to three times daily as it is supposed to regulate hormones. Most importantly, I prayed, prayed, prayed that this would quickly be over! Today, one and a half weeks after my CT scan, I'm told that both cysts are shrinking significantly (by half or more). I'm praising God! :)"
09/07/2010: Nic from Lancaster, Pa: "PLEASE HELP! 31 years old, 6 years infertile, 2 surgeries and headed to the operating room again!!!! The fertility doctor says my husband and I are "normal". There is no medical reason we can't get pregnant. I took the drug clomid over 3 yrs ago and was blessed with not 1 but 4 GIANT OVARIAN cysts..... No babies! It seems my ovaries are in overdrive still and I have had 2 laparoscopys (surgeries) in the last 28 months. I sit here, unable to work or leave the house due to heavy clotting period, still childless with my "normal body", knowing the cysts are back and another surgery will be the doctor's answer. They tell me if I get pregnant my body may no longer produce these cysts. I have not taking any other fertility drugs. I have a list of vitamins I am taking and going out to buy Apple Cider Vinegar asap. I read up on Iodine and the link with ovarian cysts. I purchased some Atomidine (water and iodine trichloride) at a health food store but want to make sure I can do all these remedies combined. I would like to take 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar, ¼ teaspoon of baking soda, and the molasses, beets and aloe vera leaf mix and and 1 drop of iodine a day. Is this safe or correct? I am COMPLELETY DESPERATE yet grateful this is driving me to seek healthy answers. It's REALLY nice to read I am not alone (with tears in my eyes)."Replies
09/08/2010: Helen from Beirut, Lebanon replies: "Hi Nic, Try the castor oil, it's for all body cysts. Warm it, apply to the cyst. Put a piece of cotton cloth full of oil also, then cover with plastic, then put a hot pad on it for one and half hour. Then u can wipe and sleep. Do it 3 to 4 times a week and see what will happen, it will shrink more and more day by day. I cured myself of many kinds of cysts with castor oil, one of them was ovarian cyst (4cm) after one week it disappeared , hope this will help, mollases is good also I drink one teaspoon daily."
09/09/2010: Sheree from Hammond, La replies: "Hi Helen, can you please tell me, did you put the oil on your lower abdomen on ovary area with heat as you did with the cysts on your skin? How often did you do it?
09/09/2010: Helen from Beirut, Lebanon replies: "Hi Sheree , yes I put the castor oil on the abdomin area on the ovary then put a cotton thin cloth then cover with plastic then the heat pad for one hour and a half three to four times a week before you sleep then remove the oil from your skin with tissues then wipe with water and sodium bicarbonate it will remove the oil. It's the cure for Cysts."
09/10/2010: Tina from Tina, Netherlands replies: "Hello, I had a dermoid cyst 4 cm for 6 months. It wasn't growing but my gyn wanted it out because it can twist and cause you mega pain and dermoid cysts CAN become cancerous. ( although really rare). I was terrified about surgery!! SO I tried everything for 3 months. I followed the mary parker project for 3 months lost lots of weight I actually shouldn't have lost and had absolutely no energy.
Then someone told me about the beet/ aloe/ molasses remedy and castor oil packs. I used these for 3 months non stop. Beet drink from beets in the garden, and I slept each night with a warm castor pack. I also took tons of milk thistle, vitamins and vitex and vitamine E - all that everyone recommended. I felt my energy rising really quickly. I also drank only 1tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar in a glas ( 350 ml) of lukewarm water 3 times a day. I had tons of energy and felt like I could take the world with Gods help. I also used a terminator 11 from Don croft for 2 weeks straight. I thought all this would certainly shrink the cyst so surgery was not necessary.
Unfortunately after 3 months of this, the cyst was still the same size. I had surgery last week they left my tubes etc intact and I was back on my feet the next day feeling 100 % thanks to the good condition I was in before the surgery. No nausea, no pain, back at home in 1 day caring for kids and hubby. Now after 10 days, I have the energy for 10.. It didn't help to get rid of the cyst, but I got all my energy and positiveness back. The cyst is gone, but I am keeping to the diet just because I feel so great. Surgery was so easy, don't worry about it, it is not hardly as bad as you imagine. But make sure you are in good shape before the surgery. Hope this helps you with your fight against cysts.
I think I would do the same as you. I would also avoid ALL cow milk, avoid all gluten foods, and all refined sugar products. Take milk thistle, to help your liver and kidneys, and vitex would probably do wonders for you. Check up on Vitex for you. It takes a while to get result on this, I had a really terrible heavy period 7 days per 27 days and it is now after 4 months very light, 3 days per 28 days. I am 39. I had surgery for dermoid cyst last week. I tried it all too, but I had no success, but I was in great condition because of all this and was feeling great 1 day after surgery. Good luck Tina"
09/12/2010: Gavin from Manganui, New Zealand replies: "I suggest a complete reboot to your system. Eat tuna or salmon.. Every day for a hundred days.. This will replace every molecule with the 72 essential elements."
[WARNING!] 09/13/2010: Diane from Berkeley, Ca replies: "Good lord. If you eat tuna every day for 100 days, you'll probably end up with mercury toxicity. There are high levels of mercury in many large ocean-going fishes, and tuna is one of them. It might "re-boot your system" but in a bad, bad way."

[YEA] 01/03/2011: Beky from Highland Park, Mi replies: "In august, I got a pelvic exam and was told that there was about a 5cm cyst on my ovary. I immediately started employing some natural methods, when I returned the next month, I was told that it was down to about 3.5cm, but still there, nonetheless. Then by ultrasound, I was told it was an endometrioma (or chocolate cyst) on my right ovary (which is more serious than just a functional cyst, which it was they first thought). When I researched it, the only real treatments I saw or read about were bleek, --surgery was the main option. That worried me tremendously. And I haven't had children yet, so I got even more worried, so I was faced with an awesome opportunity, not an obstacle.
So this is what I did and I wanted to share it with people. I don't know if it was a combo of all the things I did or just one thing.... In no particular order, although #1, was the very first thing I did and I did the juice fast within a week of learning about the cyst....
1. Always believed I could heal myself
2. Visualizing the cyst shrinking (over and over and over)-for weeks
3. Didn't listen to fearful stories. I avoided them or immediately discarded them. 4. Writing & journaling about my feelings, especially those concerning my reproductive organs, fears, concerns, worries, and relationship woes
5. Forgave people that I needed to forgive
6. Asked my guides, healers, angels and archangels to help me heal myself and guide me on how to do that & meditated on healing
7. Asked my body what it needed from me (& listened)--sometimes it would say exercise, sometimes sleep, sometimes it would be- 'eat blueberries'
8. Honored my feelings (released anger and frustration appropriately, practiced acceptance also)
9. Asked the cyst to kindly leave my body--thanked it for its presence first
10. Prayers of others (friends)
11. Rubbed castor oil on me and put heating pad over my abdomen
13. Infrared sauna
14. Ear acupressure
15. High impact exercise (5-6/days per week)
16. Chinese moxibustion stick
17. Night/dream healing from a close friend
18. Icy-hot patches for pain
19. Healing crystal directly over skin
20. Acupuncture with scannar and laser
21. Ginger oil on the skin over my abdomen
22. A 7 day juice fast
23. Black strap molasses (in beet juice or almond milk) (p. S. When mixed with almond or soy milk, it is DELICIOUS! )
24. Increased my intake of raw foods
25. Decreased dairy intake
26. Decreased sugary & processed foods
27. Apple cider vinegar and water drinks
28. apple cider vinegar douches (1-2x/month)
29. honey & cinnamon drinks
30. Increase in using tumeric
31. Took milk thistle
32. Increased intake of ginseng
In december, I got a follow up pelvic exam and ultrasound to confirm that the cyst was GONE! For anyone reading this, if any of this resonates with you, then employ some of these therapies. If they don't resonate with you, then discard them and do whatever feels right for you. You body will tell you."
03/01/2011: Pilar from Brooklyn, New York, Ny replies: "Hi my name is Pilar and I just loved what you wrote, I have the same problem , a 5.5 cms ovarian cyst, I'd like to contact you if is possible is about the list of what you did, for example did you practice the moxibustion daily, weekly or monthly? what about the ear acupressure? that was done by a specialist, or by you learning where the acupressure points of the body are? I read that you were healed in about 5 months, if you fasted for 7 days, what was your average diet the remaining time? I will go on a raw diet, maybe a 70% and 30% wholesome cooked food, do you think this is ok or I should just stick in the raw food? how is the ginger oil applied? sorry they are so many questions, but I was very impressed with your method, I firmly beleive that one can cure oneself, in the power of faith and prayer, have a blessed week!! My email is organicnychef(at)hotmail(dot)com I will thank you forever for your help :)"
08/04/2011: Sophia from San Francisco, Ca replies: "To Beky from Highland Park:
Your response resonated so much with me. I had a fluid-filled ovarian cyst last fall and healed it completely with nutritional/emotional/herbal therapies like the ones you described. However, I've just been diagnosed with a 12cm dermoid (solid) cyst- do you think nutritional/herbal remedies would be enough to heal it? Most of the literature out there says surgery is the only option for a solid cyst. That almost makes sense to me since a fluid-filled cyst could just eventually deflate/drain whereas a solid one has nowhere to go... They are suggesting I get surgery within the month, and "not to wait"- so I don't know if it's foolish or effective to spend a few months focusing on remedies such as yours. What do you think?"
10/01/2011: Larry from Rgv, Texas Usa replies: "Here's the real deal, been reading comments about ACV and others. Here's what will work though some of the comments are good but the molasses is still a sugar very much better than white and better for diabetics, Sugar is our main cause of a lot of problems and our life style and everything we eat/buy in the store has it or fructose in it we're Sugar Junkies. Sugar, caffeine, Vit C citris should all be avoided while doing the following to get rid of cysts. You need to take 6 drops potassium iodine SSKI in water with teaspoon ACV or 1 drop of 5-2% Lugols Iodine both found on-line or at drug stores. Supplement with Vitamin E, Selenium to control the interaction on T3-T4 and your thyroid, the selenium will help metabolize estrone& I6 Alpha to good estrogen and take Dong Quai, chinese herb that will help regulate estrogen and take as long as you can find it take Natural Progesterone pills/tablets. The iodine will need to be monitored by your Dr for your thyroid level if you continue longer than 30 days. Start slowly to make sure you are not iodine sensitive. As with the old Iodine on cuts and in water to kill bateria the Iodine will work on any one of the three types of cysts that get infected by menstral bleeding and cause pain and growth. These have worked for 90% of those and more that have tried this.
May God Bless. I hope to have e-books on this and other cures (some of which have worked on me and saved /prolonged my life) soon and possibly on kindle if I can find the time to complete writing and publish to my web pages and others."
10/12/2011: Edita from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "Just a month ago I was diagnosed with 5.5cm ovarian cyst and 6 small fibroids. Doctor prescribed me birth control pills and said that most likely I will need a surgery in few months. I already had one surgery 9 years ago and I was on birth control pills long time after that. However, we want to have a baby now. I decided enough is enough; I don't want to have surgeries every 5-10 years and I wont drink birth control pills.
I found this website and it really inspired me. I could not believe that people can treat such problems themselves. Immediately I went to store and bought some beets, carrots, aloe and molasses. I squeezed fresh juice, added some apple to improve the taste. I put a big jar of juice in a fridge and it was enough for a whole week. Every morning and afternoon I made a mix of juice, aloe vera, molasses and apple cider. No precise measurements, only as much as I could drink. Since I also had fibroids, I bought vitex, milk thistle and yellow dock tinctures and I mixed in the juice. I found them on this website: http://www.uterine-fibroids.org/herbal-treatments.html
Also, I was drinking herbal teas couple times a day, usually few different at a time (dandelion, milk thistle, nettle, red clover.. ). In addition I bought moringa and maca powder, I added some kelp powder, that is good for thyroid ( I don't recommend it for cysts). That was extremely nasty and I made myself to drink just couple times. Moringa and maca are bitter, kelp made everything taste like a green swamp.
I put castor oil packs almost every night.
I tried to eat less dairy and meat, but actually it was more difficult than I thought.
One really good book I would recommend is "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" by Christiane, Northrup. It talks a lot about emotional side of healing in addition to physical healing. I cried reading this book. I let go some emotions. I think every woman has to find out for herself, what the problem was that the cyst appeared.
I don't know is this a coincidence, or it really worked. I went to a different doctor today and he saw only 1.5cm follicle cyst, that he said is nothing to worry about, because I am about to ovulate. He said that could be two possible fibroids, but they are really small. I don't know if it worked, or was it a mistake by one of the doctors. Also, I had a two months of vacation, after stressful job with extreme overtime and had time to relax and ate tons of rasberries, from my parents garden, that are good for women. I still cannot believe myself that a large cyst is gone."
10/21/2012: Lola from Washington, Dc replies: "I feel compelled to post on this site as a way to say thank you to all that have shared what has worked for them. I have not come on this site in some time but found myself with a 2. 9cm hemorraghic cyst. I had all the symptoms of bloating, fullness, pain on side etc. I was very worried because I also want to start to TTC soon and having a cyst can complicate things. I started eating just a bit healthier, cutting down on sugar and junk food and just eating more green veggies, I'm also on prenatal vits. I read on here about the castor oil packs and decided to try it because I figured it couldn't hurt things. I made a simple pack by soaking a couple of cotton washcloths in castor oil and putting a heating pad over it. I left it on for about an hour or so. The next day I felt a bit better but not completely gone. I tried it again and left the heating pad for a longer amount but not more than 3 hours. Well the NEXT day I felt a slight burning sensation in my abdomen/stomach area and the symptoms slowly all went away, thank God!
I don't exactly know if it was the diet, vits, castor oil packs or the heat but I just know I feel all better now, and back to normal. My gyn says she was not worried about the cyst because they are normal and they come and go, and that might have been the case with this one too but I really think that the castor oil with heat is what truly made the biggest difference. I have read that one way of knowing that these types of cysts have actually dissolved is by the burning in the stomach which I definitely felt. My hopes in posting this is to help anyone that is looking for alternate ways to eliminate cysts. "
12/05/2012: Leeza43 from Manorville, Ny, Usa: "Hi Ted, I am a 44 year old woman who had a partial hysterectomy 18 months ago, they left my ovaries.
I now have multiple cyst on both ovaries. My right is 6.2 X 6.0 and my left is 5.6 x 4.2. I am supossed to be on as much rest as possible. I also had several years ago a-typia breast lump removed as well, recently when they discovered my cyst they discovered I had a low infraction rate of 13% of my gallbladder, I recently did a gallbladder cleanse. It seemed to really help.
Now Im trying to fix this cyst issue. I am trying the blackstrap & ACV to see if this helps. I have cut out all processed foods from my diet incuding all dairy. I do have a coffee in the morning. Please help on what I should be doing and taking.
My doctor is urging me to have the surgery, as he say the only way to make sure the cyst are not cancer is to have them removed and sent to pathology. I really do not want any more surgeries and Im confused and scared.
I feel like a mess. I need to get my life back. Thank you so much for your help. Thank you, Liza"Replies

i m 27 year old girl (unmarried). I found cyst in my left ovary it is 5 cm. I have no pain or bleeding in it.
Doctor suggest me for surgery. But I dont want. Can u tell me natural remedies to removal of cyst. pls tell me those things wich can be easily available in india wich has no side affects .
09/04/2011: Winter from Oakville, Ontario, Canada replies: "Hi Satinder,
I had a 6cm ovarian cyst and it did bleed. My doctor however told me to wait 3 months and that it would likely go away on its own (get flushed out with your cycle). I was told not to run or exercise as it might bleed again.
If it didn't go away, then they would do a biospy or surgically remove it.
It is painful, but if you are in good health otherwise, then you might just want to wait it out before getting it surgically removed right away, it is common for cysts to appear/disappear on their own.
Sorry I don't have any home remedies and best of luck."
09/05/2011: Debbie from Melbourne, Australia replies: "Satinda, read the Ovarian Cyst page on Earth Clinic. There are lots of people who have had great success in what they did without resorting to surgery.
I have also read that a glass of lemon juice every day can rid you of ovarian cysts.

The OBGYN nurse called, acted like it was no big deal it will go away in 6 weeks with your cycle or we will check it then to be sure... I read an super old book called Are you Confused? by Paavo Airola .. so I went on the beet, cabbage, parlsey cilantro little yellow potato with just half cayenne pepper broth fast (I slighty changed his version) it is where you cook the vegetable down in boiling water, pour off the broth, throw away the remaining vegetable and just drink the liquid broth. So it is broth fasting. I did this for eight days. You have to do an enema daily as well to clean the system or get a colonic every day. Anyhow, when they did the ultrasound the ovarian cyst was gone."
09/22/2012: Baldev from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India replies: "Hi Satinder, First thing is stop worrying about it, because you are not the first one to get it, lot of women get it, why? No body knows it. As some one has mentioned, some times they go away at their own also, but you have to be lucky for that. You have to be careful as to what you eat, you should try what Dvie has suggested and since you are from India, Swami Ramdev's Pranayam practices do help in this condition. You have to do Kapalbhati and Alom Vilom twice a day morning and evening. I am sure you will get good results, also tell to your self " DAY BY DAY IN EVERY WAY I AM GETTING BETTER AND BETTER" and see what happens.
Good Luck. Baldev"

First thing I suggest, don't panic. This itself will go against your AIM. However, BSM, is available in India where ever sugar mills are there under different names. For example in Maharshtra it is available under the name "KAKWI". Please check in your state the areas where sugar mills are there and explain to them, before processing and refining to make GUR and sugar, the syrup which is in raw form is the equavalant of BSM.

[YEA] 10/21/2009: Chandra from Seattle, Wash: "I started taking potassium iodide (sski pills - 1 a day) last yearwhen I was having intermittant ovarian cyst pain after reading about it on Dr Wright's site. The pain went away after a few weeks taking the supplement. After I ran out of the supplement 2 months ago, I didn't buy more, thinking I didn't need it. Well in the past 2 weeks I am having the same shooting pain in my right ovary area that is getting more pronounced as I near my period. I have just reordered it online (most vitamin stores carry different brands of it) and will post an update if it works. But from past experience, I would say a definite YES to sski for ovarian cyst pain."Replies
12/06/2009: Chandra from Seattle, Washington replies: "Update to my October 21 feedback about SSKI for ovarian cyst pain. 3 weeks on SSKI (3 tablets a day) and my ovarian cyst was gone by the end of my last period. No pain, no tenderness. Yea yea!! I plan to take it every day with a 1-2 day break here and there. I may switch to 1 drop of lugol's iodine later on and see if that has the same preventative effect."

12/08/2009: Chandra from Seattle, Wash replies: "Hi Migurl09,
I can't name the brand per this site's policy, but I can tell you I bought mine at iherb (online store). Bottle says Potassium Iodide, 32.5 mg, 120 Tablets. I have bought other supplements from this same company at Whole Foods and think there are pretty good. Oh, I see another liquid potassium iodide on iherb from another company. Well I think that as long as you buy sski from a reputable vitamin company it will work fine.
Let me know if it cures your ovarian cyst!"
10/18/2010: Emily from Phoenix, Az replies: "I've been having pain in my lower right abdomen for the last month. Due to current health insurance status, I can't make any Dr. Appointments until next year. But a friend of mine is a general prac and she said it sounded like a cyst or fibroid. I came to to this site to find ways to alleviate the pain until I could get an ultrasound done to verify that it is a cyst. I wasn't sure what SSKI was, so I ended up getting a bottle of Bernard Jensen's brand liqui-dulse at the farmer's market. The suggested dosage is 4 drops per day, which equates to 225mcg of iodine. I've been mixing it with my water/apple cider vinegar drink for the last 4 days, and the pain is practically gone. I only get a twinge once or twice. I am shocked at how fast this seems to have worked. I'm going to continue drinking this, and if the pains subsides completely, may not ever get that ultrasound."

07/07/2011: Ew from Rockville, Md, Usa replies: "I've been taking the Potassium Iodide for a little less than 2 months now, and it doesn't seem to have done much in terms of shrinking the cyst. Maybe I haven't been taking enough. (2 tablets of 32.5 mg each at the most, and then using iodine/iodine tablets or liquid iodine occasionally)
I think I lost 10 lbs because of the Potassium Iodide. It seems to work a lot like the Molasses-- it took away the pain almost completely. The first month, I felt that it had a detoxing effect, but then I lowered the dosage because I didn't want to hurt myself with too much iodine.
I remember reading one site that mentioned that the iodine may need 2 to 6 months to work. That seems to be a long time. I wish I enjoyed eating beets more, but it's really hard to stand the taste.
Healing and health to everyone! Don't give up."

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 06/28/2010: Justy from San Diego, Ca: "About 6 months ago I the doctor found a large cyst on my right ovary, and told me I needed to have surgery. Following the surgery she discovered two very large cysts with cysts INSIDE cysts! All the doctors were amazed, I guess that's not very common. Anyway, it's been a few months and I am experiencing pain in my lower left pelvic area, sometimes when I urinate, pass gas, or have a BM I feel that area too, and I have been to two doctors who think it might just be scar tissue, and recommended that I stretch and use something that warms the area, a homeopathic gel.
Two days ago I started taking chaste-berry supplements a couple times a day, along with a liver supplement(found at a local health foods store), starting eliminating too much sugar (I have a sweet tooth), eating yogurt in the morning, exercising as usual, and for the past two days the pain has been EXTREMELY lessened. I have a check-up appt. Thurs. and another in 2 months, as I have another very small cyst on my right side! I am going to try this beet/carrot/molasses mixture ASAP! I am reading a lot into natural cures, and they all seem much more appealing than conventional methods.
Thanks for the info. everyone!"
