[YEA] Batholin Cysts are a tricky thing. For one thing, doctors just want to poke holes in you, and for another, there isn't much out there on how to effectively deal with these.
I have had 2 bouts of a cyst over the course of 2 years. They were both badly infected, and painful, and I healed from both of them using home remedies.
I think its imperative first off that women look at the root cause of this issue. I know for sure that these cysts are formed as a byproduct of sex - and on each account when mine have formed I have been stressed, and not "in the moment" of sexual acts. This is stressful on your body. If you aren't feeling 100% pleasured by sexual experiences with your partner, its important to have these communications. If you are having sex and thinking about a million other things, its important to do things to relax, and "get into the mood". Things just work better that way. And if you feel soreness after sex, be proactive about it. Don't push your body past its comfort, and manage your stress. There are great herbs you can take to increase your sexual urge, such as an awesome formulation from Jing Herbs called Three Sisters. I take this every day, and right before sexual intercourse to really make sure my body is prepped, and that I will be producing adequate fluids in a healthy way.
So. For treatment of a bartholin cyst, I suggest to stop eating all processed sugars, dairy, & grains, and start eating/drinking lots of vegetables and fruits. Think green smoothies, and cooked veggies. You will need to load up on pro-biotic rich foods & supplements such as organic sour kraut, kim chi, coconut water kefir, or just general very high quality supplemental probiotics. You can treat yourself with honey and stevia chai smoothies if you need something sweet. But this is very important. It is also important that you mentally prepare to REST. Give yourself 3-5 days to deal with this, and allow yourself this.
What helped the infection most is douching with Silver Sol & Apple Cider Vinegar. Silver Sol will knock out infections, but it is more expensive. I took Silver Sol internally 6-8 times per day, and douched with it once every 2 hours for the first 2 days. Once the swelling & pain started to drastically come down, I started douching with Apple Cider Vinegar. The best way to do either of these douches is with a medicinal squeeze top tube - the kind that comes in a lot of herbal tincture bottles. For the ACV I mixed 1/2 cup of ACV with 1 cup of warm water, and used this throughout the day, on the hour.
The douches will knock out a lot of the infection & help with the pain. You will most likely notice changes happening quickly. Make sure that if you are in pain, that you are taking Silver Sol internally as well, in order to keep your whole system strong. Also be sure to be taking powerful strains of Probiotics, and treating our body extra well with nourishing foods. While you are resting and healing, consider the possible causes of the issue, and allow yourself to let go of anger & any resentments that you may be harboring towards your partner, or life in general.
To help with letting go of the emotional aspects that are so highly related to this issue, taking Epsom Salt baths will clear these emotions and toxic energies from your body. Allow yourself to soak in them for at least 20 minutes once a day. You will probably feel like crying~ allow yourself to do so. Being real with yourself about your feelings, and expressing them will quicken your healing, and help to eliminate these issues in the future.

I would be grateful for information on remedies for a cyst I have been diagnosed with on a nerve ending in my ear. The past two months I have been to ER three times with severe vomiting attacks thought to be from meniere's disease and an MRI showing the cyst, though the doc doesn't seem to think it is causing me these problems. Does any one know what to do for meniere's or have information on chinese herbs for congestion in the ear and or dissolve the cyst? Thank you so much. I am feeling totally helpless with this situation and worried about keeping my job from having to leave work when one of these attacks comes on.Replied by Dave

Just want to help anyone suffering from chronic painful cysts... Gluten intolerance may be your problem. It was mine. After YEARS of fighting a loosing battle, my bloodwork came back positive for celiac (over the limit anitbodies showed up). I had to give up soy, dairy, sugar, gluten, wheat, yeast, and most starchy foods like white potatoes, corn and beans... But I thoroughly enjoy healthy eating... Broccoli, cabbage, carrots, sweet potatoes, lean ground beef, salmon, turkey and a few other foods. For years dermatologist told me diet had nothing to do with it... But I am now convinced diet has everything to do with it ... Plus getting your stomach in good working order. Pantothenic acid (b5) in 500 mg per day and acidipholus and digestive enzymes are a must in my daily regimin.
Just hope I can help someone else with this advice... Give up the junk food and gluten and see if it helps. God revealed to me what I needed to do... So I give him all the praise and glory for my progress. Believe it or not, I now actually like the taste of FOOD without all the sauces, toppings and added "stuff" we destroy it with. Blessings!!! In the name of my Lord Jesus Christ!!!Replied by Joelle
