[YEA]  Relief to Ovarian Cyst and PMS Symptoms.

For many years I have suffer from extremely painful periods and all of the usual symptoms, bloating, water retention, upset stomach, etc. etc. About a month ago I had an ultrasound and it was confirmed I had ovarian cyst on both ovaries, the one on the left one was big, I don't know the exact size. Anyway I came home with a Dr's prescription for a medication that was supposed to help ease the symptoms and shrink the cysts, but after reading the side effects (cases of high levels of acidosis on some women) I decided not to take the medicine. On the last 5 to 6 weeks I've drastically change my diet to a High vegetable intake all trhoughout the day, veggie juice in the morning, veggies in my eggs, high fiber cereal, home made gazpacho at least a couple of days a week, fish, chicken and lots of veggies for dinner, I switched from regular milk to almond milk, low fat yogurt (in moderation) nuts such as almonds and sunflower seeds for snacking. No red meat, no fast food, pizza, fried chicken,sugar,bad carbohidrate, soda and specially coffe. Lots of water with some lemon juice and a hint of baking soda. I also did the beet/molasses drink twice a day for two weeks. Today I'm on my second day of my period, and haven had to take a single pain killer, no bloatting, or upset stomach, just mild cramps like it should always be, I'm taking herbal teas for comfort and easing symptoms. I'm so thrilled about it, (I don't look pregnant anymmore), I've lost over 5 lbs. and feel very calm and light. I will continue following this natural approach, and continue educating myself, I'm not sure if the cysts will ever go away, but the symptoms are definately not the same anymore. I'm going to get another ultrasound in a few months and then I'll be able to see if there has been a change on size and amount of the cyst, maybe they'll be gone! Good luck to everyone, and thank you to all the people that have provided valuable information to this subject.

Have you tried switching from regular yogurt to soy or a coconut based yogurt instead? You can find them at WholeFoods or possibly an organic store. Cutting out the dairy in your diet really would help. There is a downside. These types of yogurt cost twice as much and can be harder to find. It will also take your taste buds some time to adapt, but the rewards are definently worth it. You feel better. You really do.

I do NOT recommend using any soy products. An imbalance of the estrogen in your system leads to ovarian cysts and soy is a mass producer of estrogen. Dairy should be used in moderation and organic as much as possible as it contains estrogen as well.

Estrogen blockers like brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are awesome to implement to lower your estrogen levels.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Hi ladies, I am 39 years young, I was tied off five years ago, after I gave birth to twins. Soon after I started having heavy 20 day periods with unbearable pains.

In February of 2011, while having my period, I fainted on my job and was taken to hospital by ambulance. After many tests and scans they discovered an ovarian cyst, and discharged me from hospital, before my next appointment I had my period and this time it was heavier than anyone can imagine. After my fiance found me on the floor unconcious, he took me to my Dr.who sent me to the emergency room where Dr.said I needed surgery. I was so worried I knew there was something else that could be done naturally, so I desperately surfed the internet, for months.

I put off my wedding and dedicated some serious time into finding a remedy other than surgery-that's when I came across this website and the apple cider vinegar remedy. Stopped eating red meat, fastfoods, chocolates, dairy products, animal fats, sugar, caffeine, sodas and breads made with white flour. I started drinking 100% juices and green tea and 180 ounces of water daily, eating lots of vegetables, fruits and boiled foods, prunes, nuts and beans.

I tried the apple cider vinegar in my water and juices twice daily, and I also douche twice daily with strong vinegar and water, and I must say it's been three weeks and I feel and look much better. My stomach is much flatter and I can now sleep on my stomach at night, no more heavy bleeding or pains.

I am so glad I came across this site. My cyst was the size of a cantaloupe I could have actually felt it in my stomach, this remedy along with praying in faith and believing God for my healing is truly working. I didn't show up for my surgery but I rescheduled an ultrasound and I will keep you ladies posted on my results. I truly believe my cyst has shrunk, and I believe in these remedies and my God.

I have been reading alot about Apple Cider Vinegar helping with ovarian cyst, but I'm still a little confused on how to take it. If someone could help me with this I would really appreciate it. I'm 23 years old and was told that I had PCOS at the age of 17. It would be really nice to get rid of them so I could regulate my menstrual cycles and have a family of my own in the near future. My husband and I have been married for 5 years and would like to start trying to get pregnant without this problem. I need the amount, how and how many times a day I should drink acv. Thanx

[YEA]   I have had 3 MRIs over the last 2 years to monitor a large fibroid (see other posts). The first scan also showed the presence of a chocolate cyst and a functional cyst. Since changing my diet to control the symptoms of the fibroid, both cysts have disappeared.

In addition to becoming a vegetarian, I regularly drink ACV (2 tbsp/day with baking soda water) and take vitex agnus castus (chasteberry) capsules (4 mg). 6 months after the first MRI, the cysts were not visible. 19 months later, the latest MRI has shown no sign of any cysts.

[YEA]   I have had irregular cycle since last year and was diagnosed with a 3.5cm ovarian cyst 8 weeks ago. Doctor says to just watch and wait as cysts usually resolve on its own.

I made dietary changes by eliminating caffeine, dairy products, refined carbs and red meat. I occasionally indulge on bread and sweets but I always go back to whole food diet. I also take 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon of unsulfured blackstrap molasses every morning on an empty stomach. I take multi vitamins everyday and evening primrose oil. I also do castor oil pack 2-3x a week.

In a nutshell, I aim to keep my body alkaline by choosing alkaline food and drinks. If I cheated on a day by eating meat or muffin, I compensate it by taking a cup of water baking soda or lemon juice (no sugar) to alkalize.

Today, my follow-up ultrasound showed I have no cyst, just a few follicles that are ignoreable. My period is still irregular but I hope that resolving the cyst will at least kickstart a more regular cycle. Hope this helps.

Dim, Flaxseed, Chckweed   0  0

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.

Hi, Momma to Many mentioned Frankincense oil can help treat an ovarian cyst. Can you recommend any other excellent essential oils to try? I was reading about Vetiver essential oil, do you think that would help?

Thanks

Dear Bluesky777,

I would not rule out that Vetiver would be helpful for cysts, but I have not found any research to support its use for cysts.

Heritage Essential Oils sells a blend for ovarian cysts that contains frankincense, geranium and cypress. So, geranium and cypress might be worth a try.

However, my first choice would be frankincense since I have seen it work first hand in my family for cysts. I had an ovarian cyst that felt like an egg. (I could feel it from the outside! ) I used frankincense and castor oil on it and by the time I went for an ultrasound a couple of weeks later, that cysts was dramatically reduced.

So, castor oil alone may be an effective and inexpensive treatment for ovarian cysts. (Since Frankincense is more expensive and not as easy to find as castor oil.) I put it on a cloth over the ovary area, covered it with plastic wrap and then put a heating pad over that area over my bedclothes and slept that way for several hours each night. (Heating pad needs to be on the lowest setting.) Castor oil should not be used during menstruation, though. I was using frankincense on the area each morning. So, I can't say for sure which contributed more to healing.

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.

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.

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... I will be buying Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses on 26th dec.. and start doing it... Have read all the 3 pages dedicated on ovarian cysts and I am glad for the people who have escaped the surgery and beaten this thing... And for those who have not please do not loose hope.. Even tho its hard and harsh. As I read it by someone who posted when we are ready we find the way... So I believe god has shown me this website with some purpose... And I am negative in nature but I will make positive changes... And I will heal. God bless everyone who struggles with endometrosis and ovarian cysts... I am dealing with one...

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!!!

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......

Went to the ER after an excessive bleeding and pain episode after sex... Was told I had an ovarian cyst on my left ovary size of a bird egg... Was given provera for the bleeding and pain pills. Now the pain has subsided, want to know if it is ok to resume sexual activity and will it prevent me from having more children? Will the remedies listed here hinder me?

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. It affecting every aspect of my life ( exersise, work ( had blood on my chair one day) sex etc. Not to mention I feel like an emotional wreck. 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.

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]  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.

Heat Application   0  0   

Posted by Shrink Big Cyst (Constitution, Oregon, Usa) on 10/07/2014

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Greetings. My suggestion for instant relief of almost any pain, but especially a big cyst, is to apply HEAT! From any source. My choice is to wear a hot water bottle; I underestimated the healing benefits until I relapsed into 2 out of 10 health for the last week. My genius husband thought to use a back brace to leave me hands free. A large purse could probably work well. Now, I strap it on two or three times a day. I can also lay on my stomach with the hot water bottle on my spot; I can lay on my stomach for the first time in eighteen months! I apply castor oil on my belly, wrap the bottle in a towel, and have faith that the oil helps pull out toxins.

My question is when the cyst bursts or tears, other than the pain, is a relief of breathing felt? When my three babies were born the water leaking was instant relief. I currently feel in the last month of pregnancy, like I am carrying a 6 pound baby; I felt worse in the last 18 months, like sometimes I am carrying our 10 pound son. Do women experience heavy periods with clots or does the cyst dissolve slowly into bowel movements?

I look forward to reading more posts about the science and the process of healing, especially I want to know about maintaining cyst-free. I thought different times in the last 9 months since the removal of my IUD that I was cyst free. I juice fasted for a total of more than 70 days, in 7-10 day periods and felt relief. I am proactive with a 80% raw and 100% vegan diet. I supplement with herbs, warm teas, and iodine. Does anyone have experience with deep tissue massage, could I penetrate the cyst and poop it myself? I hope... What about acupuncture, acupressure? Thanks for your time and consideration.

[YEA]  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.

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]  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.
