Molasses in spanish is MELASA. For years I have heard my dominican family member say that a mixture of molasses, aloe vera and BEETS will remove any cysts from women breast and ovaries. I just found out i have two cysts. According to my dominican aunts i must take the this mixture for 40 days. I will post my results. I have true faith in natural resources.

I just wanted to share with you something amazing, I had a complex dermoid ovarian cyst for 17 years, that the doctor said would never go away and that he recommended having surgery for it, and now it's gone! It used to be 4.2 cm, so not huge, but still.
It took me 1.5 years though and as I did so many things I'm not sure which one worked, so unfortunately I don't have any top tip of what to do, but it is probably due to one of these factors or a combination of some (or all).
- Blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar with warm water twice a day (not the best for your teeth though...) for the first half year.
- Special herb teas from the herbalist twice a day for the first 6 months (can't remember what was in there - cardamon and other spices).
- No meat, no sugar (except natural sugar in fruits and blackstrap molasses), no dairy, no soy products and almost only wholgrain when it comes to flour products, no processed food, cooked everything myself from scratch for the first 6 months, after that there I half went back to my previous eating habits, but partly my new eating habits stayed.
- Castor oil packs on a regular basis, kept it for about an hour while watching TV.
- Healing (reiki and reconnective - my herbalist told me issues in this area of the body often are emotional).
And on another note, that first half year when I ate super healthy and took the herbs - I didn't have any period pains!
So despite not being able to tell you exactly what it was that worked for me, I mostly wanted to let you know that despite my cyst being dermoid and of the more complicated type, and having had it for so long, alternative therapies can work. And now I'm doing some research on how to solve my other health issue...
Good luck to you all and just hang in there when times are tough! Lots of love

Hi everyone. I wanted to share my experience to date with ovarian cysts in case it is of use to others and as a part of my own healing process. First, thank you for this site - Earth Clinic, and all of you participants. You've been very helpful to me already and I'm grateful.
I'm 48 years old, premenopausal and generally healthy. 6 weeks ago I went to planned parenthood (how I love planned parenthood! ) with a prolonged and unusual period of about 10 days duration, and they did an abdominal and vaginal ultrasound. They found a left sided simple cyst on my ovary and a right sided "complex" cyst of about the same size.
I immediately scoured the internet including this site for home remedies. Here's what I did:
*made a small pretty sign that reads "My body is perfectly healthy" and hung it on my wall to see each day. I encouraged myself to believe it, without being pushy. Practiced this affirmation in spoken form too.
*practiced metta or loving-kindness to myself and others. I sent out intentions for health/happiness/peace/ and safety for all sentient beings multiple times per day. practiced active stress reduction, tried to be quick to let go of anger or other stress inducing emotions. watched only happy movies and tried to minimize my addiction to the news (that was not terribly successful)
* opened my heart and body to receiving all prayer and good intentions from the universe and a few people who volunteered to keep me in their prayers (Of note, I am buddhist and I do metta practice but am not religious. My family is religious and I'm open to it all so long as it has wellbeing as its intention.)
*did guided imagery for healthy pelvis and shrinking ovaries. did this and the above whenever it occurred to me to do.
*received one reiki session from my friend who is a reiki master
*received acupuncture every other week
* abdominal massage at night with sesame oil infused with a few drops of frankincense, clary sage, lavender and rose
*basically launched a liver cleanse for two weeks: twice daily aloe vera juice (2 ounces); daily or at least multiple times weekly teas (dandelion -yum! ; milk thistle); lots of water throughout the day (tall 1/2 liter container infused with 1-2 oz apple cider vinegar/1 oz unsulfured blackstrap molasses/ and warming spices of cinnamon, turmeric, cayenne pepper, ginger)
*changed my diet to counter what I'm guessing is excess estrogen in my system (I was already gluten-free and factory-farm animal products-free): added soy-free, processed food-free, and went near-vegan. went up on greens, apples, rice, yams, garlic, onions, nuts, seeds flax, occasional fish. made a lot of fruit/veg smoothies and had a red juice from the health food store once or twice a week: beets, carrot, ginger, apple.
* avoided: daily, alcohol, caffeine and processed sweeteners. I also avoided xenoestrogens by avoiding plastic containers and makeup/hair products.
* I've been taking evening primrose oil 500mg three times per day, vitex (chaste berry) capsules three times per day, and a multivitamin for women over 40.
*after two weeks on a very limited diet as described (including over thanksgiving - my family was gratefully supportive, but it was tough! ), I added back farm-raised meats and eggs in limited amounts. I also added back occasional glass of wine and a 1/2 cup of morning joe if I needed it.
I followed up with a gynecologist about 2 and 1/2 weeks later who did an pelvic exam and checked my thyroid, both of which were largely unremarkable. He suggested that we followup in a month with a repeat ultrasound to see if they were shrinking on their own. That sounded great to me since I was eager to see if my comprehensive self-care program was working at all.
I have to say, that even though this may seem over the top and way too radical for many, I am enjoying these changes very much. I work from home and have no children so I have the leisure of being able to apply a fair amount of time and energy toward these practices, but honestly I think anyone could do these things fairly easily.
Today I had a follow-up ultrasound (6 weeks since the first one). The tech shared with me that my right "complex" cyst is now down to a small (1.5cm) simple cyst. So that one is going in the right direction and my fears about something more serious are abating. My left sided cyst is about the same size and remains "simple" in appearance.
I am taking this as nice progress! I haven't spoke to my doctor yet but hope to be in a watch and wait mode. I plan to keep up my new diet and regimen. I may add in castor oil packs, and will continue with reiki and acupuncture and metta.
I also may investigate iodine deficiency as I use sea salt on my food which is non iodized and I don't know if I am deficient or not.
I realize that it could be that my right one was hemorraghic and the cysts ruptured (I haven't had any pain though) and that's why that one is better; it could be that none of these practices have and any bearing on the resolving right cyst. I realize that. But I choose to believe that the little things we do matter a great deal to our bodies and that we have more power regarding our wellbeing than we are led to believe.
Thanks for your support on this forum and best wishes for health and happiness to you all!! Please send any comments or ideas my way if you care too. Happy New Year! May it feel very new. Hang in there!
I have been reading the posts and it has been very encouraging, Thank You All :). My heart goes out to all of you suffering from all the pain and you are in my prayers. I am a 38 year old female with a 4 year old daughter, trying to get pregnant. I had a blighted ovum (placenta but no developed egg) 6 months back and d&c was performed. 3 months back my gynaec found a 4 cm cyst on my right ovary and thinks that it might be endometriomas. He is not completely sure if it is and wants to wait and see if the cyst goes away by itself. I always had regular 28 days cycle with very little pain and 3-4 days of bleeding without any clots before the cyst. Since the cyst my last 4 cycles have been 22 days and I did have a considerable pain during 2 out of the last 4 cycles. My naturopath prescribed a tincture of Vitex, Wild Yam and Raspberry which she thinks will help with the cyst and also help me to pregnant. Since I started taking the tincture my last cycle was 25 days but my cyst is still the same size. I am planning to take Shatavari as its highly recommended and have started the apple cider vinegar with black strap molasses once day. One question I have is does the sugar from the molasses flare up the cyst. I would really appreciate if anyone could recommend what would be a good course of action to get rid of the possible endometrioma
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! :)
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, 1/4 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).

Thanx a lot for such a wonderful site. Now I have only right ovary with 5. 7cm dermoid cyst also using remedies of earthclinic. Eagerly wants a baby. Can I have sex in this condition??? I read online somewhere that only a dermoid which started bleeding or has infection can b cured by natural remedles. Is lt right? Waitng for ur faithful reply.
I'm totally surprised that it z said that every disease can b cured except death. Even, on ur site, a lady having ovarian cancer has been cured! But ovarian dermoid cyst has no special known remedy??? How can it b possible mam???
It hurt me badly. I have lost one ovary after two surgeries and have drmoid now thrice of 5. 9cm. Still wating for a baby. I request to u all experts, owners , contributors and all members please find out the hollistic treatment for dermoid cyst also as u people know abt other diseases and say!!! Hurray!!! Life depends upon hope. I m waiting! Sorry for this frank complaint.
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.

I had many ovarian cysts over a 10 year period. Towards the end of that period they occasionally burst with many hours of excruciating pain. I had tried many things homeopathy and Chinese medicine which helped but did not cure. Then an acquaintance suggested I check out Dr. Jonathan Wrights website and forum on SSKI iodine/ iodide supplement & ovarian cysts. Following his protocol for approximately 6 weeks my orange sized ovary returned to normal size and I have never had an issue since. That was 6 years ago! I also did some hypnotherapy around my ovary issues at that time. Good luck!
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!
