Hi,

I have a GF with a 9 CM Ovarian cyst. One doctor recommended surgery, another said she could try Super Lutein and Izumio - which are expensive (about $170 each, possibly a little cheaper for the Super Lutein). Apparently, someone she knows tried these two things and their cyst disappeared.

I mentioned for her to try Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses. Is there anything else you would recommend that she try? Beets or Aloe Vera, Lemon Juice? Would anything such as food grade Peroxide properly diluted in water help? She is trying to eat more vegetables and fruits. She has stopped drinking coffee and has stopped eating bread (she consumed these two regularly). Would it also be best to reduce something such as white rice? I was thinking it would be best to reduce or totally eliminate white sugar, and using Stevia, or a moderate amount of Raw Honey. Thanks

Dear Bluesky777,

I agree that the Blackstrap and Vinegar are good ideas...and less sugar and more fruits and veggies.

Castor Oil is good for this type of thing. She could try castor oil packs over the area 4 times a week, except during her period.

http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/castor_oil.html

Also, Frankincense Essential Oil is good for cysts. A few drops rubbed over the area twice a day. This can be done all month long and is even good for cramps.

Let us know how it goes for her!

Hi Mama to Many,

thanks very much for the note.I'll mention that info to her.I wonder if the two expensive supplements I mentioned before are even needed.Regarding Aloe Vera and Beets, what's the best way - to make a juice out of them, or is blending in a blender good as well?

Thanks

Dear Bluesky777,

I think juicing or blending would be fine. However, I would be careful when juicing beets. A little goes a long way. A friend would juice only 1/2 a beet and have a strong reaction. Whatever you do, I would have her try less and work up to more, to make sure it agrees with her.

Regarding the Frankincense, it is actually quite gentle. I have used it straight (100% Frankincense oil) and it has been fine. So, if you have 20% Frankincense, you should not need to dilute it further. On the skin I usually use a 2-4 drops, so that would be equivalent to 10-20 drops of what you have.

Keep us posted!

I've been recently diagnose with Dermoid cyst. My doctor want to remove both ovaries. I definitely don't want that and rather try the holistic approach. Please help!

Posted by Mehnaaz (India) on 05/02/2014

HELP ME, IT'S URGENT!!

I have been suffering from dermoid ovarian cyst in my right ovary measuring approx. 6. 2 cm (my left ovary has already been removed doing oopherectomy in June 2012 due to a large dermoid cyst measuring more than 10 cm). After the removal of my left ovary I started suffering from fibroids in my right breast for which I started taking homoeopathic treatment. But, to my horror, my routine sonography revealed (just after six months of treatment) that I had developed three dermoid cysts in my right ovary. After visiting your site, I came to know about the benefits of Blackstrap Molasses and Apple Cyder Vinegar. I'm taking ACV with honey and then immediately I'm taking BSM with milk. IS IT RIGHT?

Earlier I was taking it twice a day but now I'm taking it only in the morning on empty stomach due to suffering from stomach pain and loose motions. I'm also using castor oil packs regularly but since last two weeks my skin has developed burns in the area where I apply the packs. The burns are dark brown in colour and feel itchy. Though they occupy some part of the total area but I'm in doubts. I really don't want to leave applying the packs. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Mehnaaz from India, it sounds like you need to check into Iodine. You can google iodine and cysts or iodine and fibroids. There is lots of information out there. Lynn Farrow, Dr. Brownstein are just a couple that have information. Hope this will help you.

Dear Mehnaaz,

It should be fine to take the vinegar and water and blackstrap and milk the way you are doing it.

Are you using a heating pad with the castor oil packs? If so, you might need to lower the heat or use a hot water bottle or even just use the castor oil plain. You can rub it into the skin instead of using a pack even. You also should take days off. Always take off the days of your period. And perhaps take off on weekends. While your skin heals here, you could take a week off and then resume.

Please keep us posted!

Dear Mehnaaz,

I have not been able to find a known natural treatment for a dermoid cyst. I think what you are trying is worth a try. No one can say for sure that there is no cure (natural or otherwise.) We can only say there is no known cure. What you are trying is reasonable because it has worked on other cysts and on many other health conditions.

Many times I have experimented on my self with natural remedies and keep trying until I find one that works. (As do many others that post here at Earth Clinic.) I, and many others, have found solutions that work when doctors say there is no cure.

At the same time, you are working with something that may be hindering your fertility. If the cysts grow too much and begin to cause you complications, their removal at that time could mean the loss of your remaining ovary. I have read about people who have had dermoid cysts removed (and ovary left intact) that have gone on to have healthy pregnancies. Untreated dermoid cysts can cause complications in time, as you know, including ovarian torsion. That would be a medical emergency and would also mean you would likely loose the ovary.

I do not know what your medical options are. Ideally you would be able to find a doctor or midwife that would be willing to work with you and respect what you are desiring to try. If you could have the cyst monitored for a few weeks or so and see if there is any change following what you are doing, that would be helpful. If there is no change, it might be wise to have the surgery sooner than later, to increase the chance of keeping your ovary, assuming you can find a doctor who is willing to remove the cyst and try to retain the ovary.

I understand your desire to avoid surgery again. I have had many surgeries over the years, including several for female issues. One time I had to sign permission for the doctor to do a complete hysterectomy because of massive internal bleeding from complications of tubal pregnancy rupture. By the mercy of God, the doctor ended up not doing the hysterectomy during the surgery and I did go on to have more children.

I will be praying for you! That you will have wisdom on treatment and that you will be able to heal and have children.

God bless you! Keep us posted.

Dear Mehnaaz,

You might want to research the name of the drug you are considering taking and see what the possible side effects are. My understanding is that cancer is a side effect of some fertility drugs.

Yes, I would be concerned that fertility drugs would affect the cyst. Have you expressed this concern to the doctor? I guess I am assuming you would need a prescription for this, since that is how it would work for me in the USA, but perhaps that is not how it is for you.

Unfortunately, dermoid cysts are not very common and there is not a lot of information about them.

Keep us posted on how things are going!

[YEA]   "Please accept my heartfelt greetings dear Mama, Due to some technical issues, I couldn't connect to you since last three weeks!!!

Mama...

My ultrasound, just after menses, on 10th June 14 showed that my Ovarian Dermoid Cyst of 6.2 cm has now become 4.3 cm. It's a very good news for me BUT...

I've been introduced to a new horrible name HYDROSALPINX!

The actual words of the report read: 'A 4.3 cm ovarian dermoid cyst with bilateral hydrosalpinx of 4 cm, 4 cm each side.'

I'm totally surprised because all the remedies which are applicable for dermoid cysts that I came to know from you and have been taking since LAST THREE MONTHS are equally applicable for hydrosalpinx treatment!

Then WHY and HOW it could occur to me inspite of all that regular treatment?

When asked, my gyneacologist told me that this hydrosalpinx has no relation to my dermoid cyst and that it happens due to infection and causes INFERTILITY if left untreated!

I donot doubt the allopathic expertise but time and again ALTERNATIVE MEDICINES have saved a lot of people from going under the knife. I believe in herbal treatment and cannot even think of being operated a THIRD TIME.

As I have told you in our earlier conversations, my left ovary has already been removed due to a very large dermoid cyst.

I HAVE THESE QUERIES FOR YOU:

Is my dermoid ruptured? And what was shown as hydrosalpinx is nothing but the drained fluid from my cyst?

I'm taking tablets prescribed by my doctor since last three months to regularize my menses and now he has suggested that regular cycle is a MUST which will not thicken the fluid.

Is there any natural way of normalizing my menses inspite of tabs?

Please suggest what should I continue and stop taking from the following-

Since last three months, I'm taking ACV, BSM, Aloe Vera, Honey, Lime Juice, Beat Roots, Lots of Veggies and fruits, Plenty of water, and Castor Oil Packs regularly. I'm eating fish twice a week.

I'm strictly refraining from white flour, white sugar, all sweets, red meat, oily, fried, processed foods, milk and milk related products, and curd.

Since 15 days, I've added to my list Ginger Garlic Juice (1,1 tbspn), Vitamin C, Baking Soda, and Turmeric.

From this week, whenever I'm using Castor Oil Packs, I'm experiencing severe pain in my right pelvis, right back, and right leg. WHY?

My husband and I do not have intercourse since last three months for the fear of my dermoid getting twisted.

Dear Mehnaaz,

It is good to hear from you! It does seem very encouraging that the cyst is reported to be reduced in size. And I agree that the fluid in the tube is a distressing surprise and diagnosis.

The protocol you have come up with for yourself sounds wonderful! The turmeric is anti-inflammatory and the the vitamin C and garlic excellent for infection, if that is causing the fluid in the tube.

Does the doctor think the fluid in the tube is caused by infection? If so, I would be sure to take a lot of vitamin C. If you begin to get loose bowels you can cut back some. But even 5-10 grams a day would not be too much. You body may tolerate even more than that if it is fighting infection.

The pills you are taking to regular your cycles, is this hormonal birth control pills? Can these have an effect on the cyst?

Many of the remedies you are using are ones that help regulate the cycles, though you may not be able to tell if they are helping while you are taking something else from the doctor.

I am very concerned about the pain you are having when you use castor oil packs. It is a mystery; I have never heard of castor oil packs causing pain like this. I do know that when I had a twisted cyst on my fallopian tube I had severe pain and pain radiating down my leg. I would stop the castor oil packs for now. If the pain continues I would seek medical help as soon as possible. Ovarian torsion can also cause this kind of pain. Untreated ovarian torsion can cause infertility.

I have not answered all of your questions yet. I will write again. But for now, I want to make sure that this severe pain is not continuing. Please do get it checked out if it continues and let me know one way or the other how that goes. Hopefully you will find a caregiver who is willing to work with you in your desire to preserve your fertility and organs no matter what type of treatment is needed.

[YEA]   "Hi Mama,

How are you? Actually, I often think about you, someday want to meet you and want to ask you so much about you, if you don't mind. Because I rarely find someone so caring.

Due to my health issues, I have started avoiding so-called 'caretakers' who probe my soul with their merciless questions. My friend circle has reduced to a small group of people with my husband occupying the centre place. I have been keeping so for the last 8 years and nowadays I like very much talking with you, Can I continue it?

I know, this foolish talk will put a long smile on your face but please see it as I'm talking to my own MOM.

I've read your reply. Regarding castor oil packs, I want to say that I use it at bed time and in this week I've felt pains (while using it) which have gone by themselves slowly within 2-3 hrs otherwise castor oil pack has been my 'best friend' since last 3 months.

Today is my first day of menses exactly on time with usual pain and bleeding so I couldn't go to the doctor, as suggested by you, SORRY.

I've read earlier to take things like hot tea, coffee, fish or BSM during periods which dissolve and throw out cyst and hydrosalpinx, do they?

Please suggest me proper diet for these important six days of menses.

Please tell me what will be the best time to take baking soda, empty stomach or after meals?

I don't want to stop typing but my phone is not supporting much better and students are waiting for me in classroom.

I'll send another post soon.

Waiting for your reply.

May Lord bless you and your family a healthy and happy life forever.

Dear Mehnaaz,

Great to hear from you. You are very encouraging!

You asked about diet during menses--the diet you outlined in your previous post, along with the supplements you are taking all sound excellent for all month long. You are obviously very motivated and have done your research about foods that are healing. Supplements also.

Also, you asked about taking baking soda with meals or away from meals. Perhaps someone will correct me if I am mistaken, but I think if you were taking it for stomach issues, you might take it after meals but for trying to heal something on an empty stomach.

Another option for you would be to try activated charcoal poultices instead of the castor oil packs. I have never known of the them to cause pain. They do reduce inflammation. They also draw out infection. If the fluid in your tubes is cause by either or both of these, it may be helpful. You could do them over night a few nights a week. There are directions for making them on the activated charcoal page.

You are motivated and diligent in your natural treatment. It seems to me that if anyone can cure these problems naturally, it will be you.

Looking forward to you updates...and may the Lord bless you too, and give you the desires of your heart.

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

I've had most of my adult life problems with menstruation, the extreme pain. Even to this day, I'm now going to be 48. Had a mirena iud inserted by my doctor to help with this problem. Seems not much change, painwise. Periods have just about stopped. By since I'm not that sexually active, or if I do heavy work, or lifting, a cyst breaks, then I have much pain and bleeding. Is there any way of helping to get rid of this problem? I don't have a whole lot of money, but is there any way to get rid of these cysts? thank you, orysia

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.

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.

For leg pain during painful menstrual periods I try to keep a banana, orange juice or gatorade on hand. I find that if my potassium levels get low during this time of the month, my legs, buttocks and thighs hurt worse than the cramps! I am going to try the ACV for the cysts. Thanks for the great info guys!

My second ovarian cyst the doctor did an ultrasound it was 2. 3 well. 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.

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

Hi Jyothi,
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. If you need any help you can call me 09322887066.

[YEA]  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.

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.

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!

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.

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]  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!

Dear Geeta: Ovarian cysts are formed at least from the argument of doctors from the body's lack of hormonal balance between estrogen and progesterone. Where the progesterone levels drop precipitously from the estrogen, where ovarian cysts tend to occur during the menopausal period, often called perimenopause. It would therefore be obvious that the doctor would likely recommend progesterone. Of course, taking more hormones I think would be risky.

Of course, there is another alternative from something as simple as cows lifespan and sheep's breeding age in extending or moving the menopausal period to a later date, thus delaying or minimizing the effects of the ovarian cysts. Take for instance the effect of water rich with bicarbonates, such as magnesium bicarbonate:

http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/04/08/1017206303625.html

"When we looked at the stock records of the farms it proved everything Jim Watts said," Beckett says. "It was well-known among local farmers. Some of the animals were living twice as long as normal. Most lived at least 30 per cent longer. Cattle on some farms would live to 18 to 21 and were still producing twin calves at 17 to 18. Yet on nearby farms the cattle were too old and no longer breeding at 12 to 13, which is normal. It was the same with sheep. Eight years was normal for sheep, and on some properties they were living from 12 to 15, and still lambing."

It would therefore be reasonable that by allowing the body's pH to remain in an alkaline state, from whatever the diets we are taking which tends to be acidic, where trying to achieve a urinary pH of 7.0, which is actually neutral would be one way of reducing ovarian cysts. Cysts in general contains semisolids and liquids and are encased. They are formed if the fats get excessive, calcium gets too much, for example and it blocks the capillary flow causing such cysts. Whenever the body is in an acidic state, much like acid rain eating up Greek statues, the acidity causes the bones to leech out calcium, causing high blood serum calcium levels, which is frequently found in people with acidosis.

Assuming if the body is in alkaline state, which in my definition to be at least 7.0 neutrality, or urine pH of 7.0, this is a more alkaline state taking some baking soda, some potassium and magnsium supplements necessary to balance the body's electrolytes. When this occurs, serum blood calcium is reduce, thus further formation of ovarian cysts is reduce.

In my own experience I found reduction of tissue and serum calcium to work best when citric acid 1/4 teaspoon and baking soda 1/4 teaspoon taken twice a day often removes the body's calcification best. Magnesium helps displace the excess blood calcium and increases the body's utilization of calcium. Often it takes two molecules of magnesium for every one molecule of calcium. Unfortunately most of our diets magnesium : calcium ratio is at a point where calcium is excess of magnesium, further making worse the serum calcium levels.

The other possibility is the eating food high level of vegetable oils, may cause the body to have high oils also blocks normal hormone functions, and eating foods rich in trans fatty acid can turn the body upside down. Margarine, fried chicken, french fries, potato chips, for me are a real problem, both its effects on high blood pressure, as well as reducing the body's effectiveness of natural hormones blocked by the oils.

I remember in every instance of people who live to the age of 100, at least in Thailand anyway, are vegetarians, minimal processing of foods, and sometimes, but not often eat meat, but those meat are quite often fish, rather than pork, chicken, or beef.

Their foods, are often low in oils, especially vegetable oils. People think fats are bad for you, I think it is more like cooked vegetable oils which is the real problem.

In fact I had a chance to talk with people who live in rural areas of Thailand, also known for living long lives, coming to visit the big city of Bangkok. They told me they never seen vegetable oils before and never used them in cooking! Vegetable oils in fact are only used in the city of Bangkok, well known for short lives, and other Western style diseases (heart disease, cancer, and diabetes).

Therefore to reduce ovarian cysts I think reduce vegetable oils used in deep frying, or in cooking. Take them sparingly only to use them as a supplements, such as evening primrose oil, once or twice a week, some flaxseed oil, and some fat emulsifiers, such as cottage cheese, or even better, granulated powdered lecithin.

Alkalizing can be done many ways, but I think for an ovarian cysts, the one that I know to work well in reducing serum calcium is taking 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda with 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid twice a day on an empty stomach. Taking some magnesium citrates, or magnesium chloride, 250 mg. twice a week, I think should be sufficient. It depends on people and severity of condition and sometimes, if it is need more maybe it can be taken for 5 days out of week also. Other variations to alkalizing I think is 8 teaspoon of lime, or possibly lemon, with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. Or apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda taken twice a day should also be helpful. The apple cider vinegar and the lime/lemon formula should balance most of the sodium: potassium ratio within a reasonable range. But magnesium supplements is still needed to get all those electrolytes balance. The funny thing about the commercial electrolytes is that a good one should have a good balance sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus. But they only have 4 out of a possible 5, perhaps, to reduce cost. But whatever the reason, it is you who have to fix these problems yourself. Since the diets are high in calcium and phosphorus, at least looking at sodium, potassium and magnesium as a major electrolytes, and also bicarbonates, citrates, acetates to keep the pH in balance is an important one.

Vitamins of B complex, especially B6 are synergistic with magnesium and should help the body be more sensitive to hormones. Antioxidants prevent the oil in your body from oxidizing and "hardening" thus causing blockages inside the body which can also bring about cysts. Therefore the oil soluble vitamin E should be greatly helped taken at least once every other day or in more extreme condition taken once a day. It is difficult to determine how sensitive a person is on vitamin E, but the usual dose is between 200 i.u. to 400 i.u./day. Vitamin C sodium ascorbate is an important one too and increases the body's antioxidant, in particular, the water soluble component at least so that this may help maintain or reduce the body's to forces of free radicals that may bring about cysts formation.

The final issue is most doctor's med that attempts to control, bind, increase hormones, may bring about ovarian cysts, whether they are "the pill", or hormone replacements. This should be looked at with caution.

I am very glad to have found this information if it really works I thinnk I will give it a try I have at least 3 fibroids if not more now but I have been told I have a complex ovarian cyst on my right ovary and am awaiting results from a sonogram on the 19th I am sure she will tell me what she wants to do about the fibroids and esp. the cyst she is hoping it is gone but my hunch is it won't be. I just went thru my 3rd pregnancy miscarriage after 4 pregnancies I am 43 yrs old but I know there are woment having children with success who are older than me I will gladly try this is it only takes a few weeks to get rid of my medicaid runs out the end of feburary I think if I could just get rid of them before the end of feb and have more sonograms done to show I don't have them anymore I would be so grateful and happy you couldn't knopw how happy I would be to hear no more fibroids and no more cysts. Thank you for the advice. Ginger

Hi Ted, I had polycystic ovaries. I had high estrogen since young. I developed them at 14. I came upon the castor oil packs and did them five days a week for three weeks. I would use water proof medical tape to secure the pack and after the hour of the heat I just would sleep with it, remove and shower in the morning. When I went to get the second sonogram they were gone. I also drank raspberry leaf tea every day one to two cups for cramps and to balance my hormones. In addition, I took vitex twice a day. I no longer have any cysts or problems. I drink raspberry tea at least 3 times a week just to keep things right. I hope this helps anyone with this problem. The doctors wanted to give me a hysterectamy. So sad that women are okay with this surgury that would change their lives forever in a negative way.

I hope its ok to post the next day. I am also using the castor oil packs in addition to the lemon juice and baking soda (for my ovarian cyst), I just started on the castor oil packs yesterday. my question is how long do I do both of these remedies..I drank the lemon j 2x yesterday the oil pack I left on for 1 hr. I layed the oil pack on my side because thats where most of my pain has been with along with my back.. but today going to lay it on my abdomen. I also do the hydrogen peroxide inhalation been doing that for a yr my breathing is much better and no colds/flu.. thanks for any info on the castor oil packs.. Lane

Hi Ted! I have a question about the remedies you speak of, are they for all types of ovarian cysts. I am 32, am on birth control (the pill until July then on the Mirena Implant), and have had reoccurring functional ovarian cysts. I am desperate to try anything. I am just found this site and I am trying the castor oil pack and the beet/carrot/molasses mixture. I'm wondering if a iron pill would be a good replacement for the mixture though since it is basically used to get more iron in my diet. I think I eat enough iron rich foods already but I got to do something. Are there any other things I should try?

I came across this site about a week ago when I was searching for medication for my wife who had cysts of about 12cm. She was already on antibiotics. She was fasting and praying for the cysts to shrink. I recommended that she takes ACV about 2 teaspoons 3 times a day. She was also having heartburn. Today she went for a scan, the good news was that the cyst has shrank from 12 cm to 3. 2cm. They doctors have asked her to stop medication and I have asked her to continue with the ACV.

At first, I was curious as to how apple cider vinegar should work. But then, I remembered that dairy foods are mucous forming and that apple cider vinegar is very good at reducing the mucous stuff that actually congests our systems (naturopathically speaking). I had a large orange sized cyst that had calcified removed in 2010, and I have a feeling that I have another one even bigger this time. So I am going to try the apple cider vinegar, increase my magnesium citrate, eat more raw foods to increase my body's alkalinity. Thanks Ted for the info, brilliant! Will let you know how it goes....:)

I live in Nigeria and came across the site having searched relentlessly for a natural cure for a painful cyst. I was diagnosed of a 4. 6 cyst, painful to touch and a scan showed that it was bigger than my uterus. I was advised to go for a surgery. I couldnt sit upright nor drive, it was extremely painful and so hard, I could touch it.

Mollasses and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar were diffucult to find here but I was determined. I combined Beetroot, ACV and Mollasses in no particular dosage, and took first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I also stopped meat and reduced diary foods to the best of my ability.

The pains stopped within a week, It became difficult to feel or touch the cyst anymore, it was like it had reduced or dissapeared.

Its two months now, the cyst and pain are all gone, I didnt even go back for a check up. I still take beetroot, mollasses and Acv, though I have now reduced it to once a day to prevent any re-occurrence.

The taste isnt fantastic and needs getting used to, but this does work, I was able to loose baby-fat around my waist effortlessly apart from additional benefits of beetroot and mollasses.

This site is wonderful, Keep this up and spread the good work ladies, IT DOES WORK.

I have been diagnosed with a cyst on my right ovary today through a ultrasound, it's about 4cm, I have to go back in 6 weeks to see if it has gone but I am very scared that it might get bigger, I'm also trying to conceive for a year, could this be the reason why? Could castor oil and a hot water bottle make it go away? Plz give feedback.
