20 years ago I had a cyst on my back when one day it started to hurt so I went to a Dr and he said to put a warm wash cloth and see another Doc. The wash cloth made the thing hurt like hell, and when I saw the next guy he cut and squeezed for a solid minute or 2 that hurt alot. This cyst is back to the size of a golf ball, My friend gave me oregano oil 3 weeks ago and the cyst is half the size and I believe it may be gone in a month. I apply it 3 to 4 times a day and it makes the cyst burn and feel infected for 30 minutes but then the pain and redness goes away.

Please tel me more about this cyst and how you applied and used this method to cure it. I have a cyst lower middle back which is soft and spongy and tender - think it is full of fluid - but well beneath - and giving me pain elsewhere. Think it may be torval cyst. The doctors either operate on it , which is very tricky, or say they cannot help.

Dear Carmel,

Castor Oil has helped many with cysts over the years. Perhaps it would help your (possible) torval cyst.

For this type of thing, we would put castor oil on a flannel or wool cloth and cover the cyst. Cover the cloth with plastic. Apply a heating pad to keep the area warm. You can leave the castor oil on all night. (But don't use a heating pad while sleeping.)

If you want to try oregano oil, you need to dilute it with another oil. (Coconut oil, or even more castor oil.) 25% oregano oil and 75% other oil.)

You could use the oregano oil blend in the morning and the castor oil in the evening.

I have also seen Frankincense Oil cure cysts in a short amount of time. I have used it undiluted on the skin over a cyst, but test a small area first or dilute at least 1/2 1/2 with another.

Let us know how it goes! I am hopeful that you can avoid surgery!

Oxalates  

Posted by Sheila (Rockford, Illinois) on 04/24/2012

For anyone suffering with cysts, especially near the vagina or anus: I went to doctors for a thick mass halfway between my rectum and vagina. They told me I may have to have it surgically removed. I didn't want that so I searched the net for anything. What I found was quite surprising. OXALATES! Because I had exposure to mold and swallowed fiberglass in the air, my stomach and intestines were damaged. I developed celiacs, terrible sores on my legs, arms buttocks, sores in my mouth. Fevers, swollen lymph nodes. If I had continued to follow DRs non-advice, I KNOW I would be dead now. I was sinking fast. I stopped the gluten but still had terrible muscle aches and the cyst was getting larger and more painful. I found out about the oxalates by reading online for hours. It is in the foods that are most healthy. Spinach, nuts, green foods, sweet potatoes. I went on the low oxalate diet, took calcium citrate and magnesium citrate with my meals and b-6 200 mg a day. Low and behold the cyst began to shrink and the muscle pains started to go away. It HAS to be only the citrate of calcium and magnesium.

Now I wonder if I had this, how many other people have the same thing and don't know it. It causes eye problems, brain fog and lots of pain all over. If this is you try it, it may help you. Or you can go to a doctor and have him take years to diagnose you. I'm a nurse and it is so disappointing to see how long it takes them to figure out what is wrong with you after you spend all of the money. Good luck all! Bless you all and keep trying to find your answers!

My question is as follows, I have a pilar cyst in my scalp and I am looking for solutions to natural remove the cyst. It seems as though hair grows on top of the cyst and it seems pretty solid in nature. Any information would be helpful.


Plantain  

Posted by Natrum (Flemington, New Jersey /usa) on 06/11/2012

I had a gum infection and used plantain, just chewed up a bit to get the juices out, then held the plant wad (1-2 leaves) between the cheek and gum overnight. Used it for a few nights. It drew out the infection, and was quite a relief for me. The plantain is a common "weed" you can likely find in your yard. Best to wash it off a bit first, and not source it from too close to a road.

I thought plantain was a type of banana. Are you sure the weed is called that?

EC: The herb is actually called ribwort plaintain.

Yes, plantain is the name of an herb. It has wonderful healing properties and grows in many places. I use it for insect bites, poison ivy, burns, wounds, and bladder infections. Amazing stuff! Here is a picture of some from my yard.

Suggestion about lid cysts: I lived in Pakistan for a year when I was a child. I would often get cysts, particularly in the eye area. They were quickly cured by some type of pressure plasters. These were sticky plasters and would come in a large size with many small holes pierced inside. We were given a piece cut to size, peel off the back and place on the problem area. A couple of hours later, from the painfree pressure of the plasters, the cysts would burst and that was that. I live in England now and have had a lid cyst for over two years at least and have not come across an effective cure.


Remedies for Testicular Cysts  

Posted by Mary (Yorks) on 02/11/2013

Hi my question is for Bill or Ted or any other expert. My friend has a cyst on both testicles. He gave up smoking which helped to a certain degree however he still has a lot of pain with them. The specialist said that if they still continued to bother him he would have to have an operation that would leave him almost certainly 95% infertile. Unfortunately they have got worse and his GP has referred him to the hospital where he says his operation will be in about one month time. I am wondering if it is possible to reduce/eliminate the cysts through diet etc I have seems some remedies on the site but none specific to testicular cysts and to be honest he doesn't really have time for trial and error remedies as he is expecting to be called next month. Any advice would be helpful.

I would use DMSO mixed 50 / 50 with Lugol's 5% solution.

Apply it locally twice a day. Easy at first.

Be careful, DMSO should not be applied stronger than 70%

Remedy for Sebaceous Cyst - salt crystal deodorant

My latest sebaceous cyst, right in the middle of my back over my spine, went away in a week with a combination of 1 initial treatment of a triple antibiotic ointment (readily available OTC) and then regular daily or semi-daily applications of the salt deodorant product I use for my underarms, the natural one in crystal form. It worked great. I got my wife or daughter to apply the crystal salt deodorant product right after a hot shower when my pores were open and my back was still wet. After only 4-5 uses of the salt stone, the cyst is all but gone. I can only credit intuition for the idea to use the crystal stone.

As has been said, in the past I also tried to poke and drain them (with help because they always occur on my back) but they are very hard, very painful, and do not lend to draining. Nothing like a pus filled boil or an infection that becomes numb over time, like a cuticle. A sebaceous cyst can be large, sensitive and very painful to touch, never mind to stab and squeeze! My wife loves to stab and squeeze the things, but I guess there's some repressed anger there. It hurts like hell and does almost no good.

I have had a hard time with sebaceous cysts. My first one, about 12 years ago, was a mystery to me. I thought it was a spider bite or something, and I ended up in the ER, getting VERY painful anesthesia injections (yeah, anesthesia, go figure! ) and then a painless (due to the anesthesia) lancing and cleaning of the cyst. Of course the ensuing charges were far from painless.

Since then I have had at least 2 more. Usually they happen if I don't shower every day, and honestly, I don't always. Another contributing factor, which I found out the hard way, is using a wash cloth in the shower without soap. If I drag a wet wash cloth over my back without using soap (let's say I'm in a hurry and I only soap wash my face, crotch and pits) the bacteria or whatever that grows in the humid bathroom environment is almost sure to get into my skin and I end up with a cyst.


Saltwater Rinse  

Posted by Suzzz (Lexington, Sc) on 06/07/2012

I have developed a cyst above my upper molars. Have gone to the ENT and had a CT scan... They are sending me to the oral surgeon. Any suggestions? Making pastes and applying bandaids will not work, given the location. :)

I'm not sure if this will work for a cyst but it works for an abcess. Rinse your mouth with very salty warm water. With each mouthful, swosh it around for as long as you can stand it. Spit and repeat. I've had a broken tooth with a big hole in it for 3 yrs and will get it taken care of eventually but for now, anytime I get pain and it swells up I rinse with salt water. The salt seems to draw out whatever is in there which will ease the pressure and the pain. I've never tried this on a cyst since mine have always been on my body. One thing that did work for the cyst on my wrist was a magnetic bracelet. This was a lot less painful that the 2 times it was popped before. Hope the salt helps. Good luck.

I've had sebaceous cysts all my life. Of late, I got one that came to the surface, burst, and got infected. It was awful, and after 6 weeks of not healing with antibiotic cream it was time to try something new. So I did this: I cleaned the wound again with peroxide. I then did one round of moxibustion on it. I used drawing salve for one day to get some of the deep infection out. I then began to put a bandaid with silver gel, turmeric, and a thin slice of fresh cut garlic on it twice a day as well as taking garlic and turmeric internally in gelcaps. It is now 50% healed in only 3 days. Amazing.

Tumor cyst cheese theory and sodium citrate progress

Before or with meals and snacks (4 times per day) I still take 1/2 level teaspoon of the surfactant sodium citrate. It's used as an anticoagulant in blood products. Also, it removes calcium scale from boilers without shutting them down. It also melts cheese without heating it when making nacho and mac & cheese sauces.

I have a cyst that seems to or may have shrunken a little, gotten a little flatter and softer since I started taking sodium citrate on April 7th, 8 weeks ago as of today, June 3rd. It's hard to tell thus far. I will keep this post updated on any more definitive progress. I buy food grade sodium citrate powder online in a one pound bag. Hopefully my theory will prove correct that sodium citrate can melt cysts or cancer tumors like it melts various cultures of cheese, and that cancers are cheeses of various cultures growing in the body.

Sodium citrate did help me greatly after having my blood drawn 2 months ago which resulted in what felt like painful clots in my left withdrawal arm and a kinked feeling on left side of my heart.

I started taking the sodium citrate and my clot pain stopped (clots cleared) and the kinked feeling left within 2 days.

Hi my name is Shawna I was diagnosed finally with Tarlov Cysts, I have over 20+ cysts, I was in excruciating pain most of the time ... I took Gabapentin and Tramodol for pain ...I ended up with edema in my neck and needed to take anti inflammatories, but I can't take them.... I looked up some natural ways and stumbled across "Serrapeptase". I have been taking it now for three weeks and within the first 3 days I felt no pain ... And I still continue to feel better everyday ... I actually feel good from the inside out!! I hope this can help you too!! 👍👍 Cheers!!

Hi Shawna,

Can you please clarify what was the dosage of Serrapeptase that you used and how frequently per day? Thanks!

Hello, I have been diagnosed with Tarlov cysts. They are commonly thought of as nonsymptomatic. However, I have intense pain that is 24/7. I am wondering if there are any thoughts, especially from Ted, about ways to help this condition. From what I understand, the cyst is basically a nerve root trapped by fluid from the meninges herniating. If you have any recommendations I would greatly appreciate any help.

hi, I'm just learning about this site and when I seen your tarlov cyst question, I couldn't not send you an answer to my ability since I've had close to 100 of them. I've had almost 9 yrs to research them and it has a great deal of information. spoken with top medical professionals, research teams, even the dept that records found dieases. here is the good news, if it is nonsymtomatic you can have them all your life and never have trouble, but since you say you have pain 24/7 then they have turned symptomatic. That is the bad news. It's kinda like the chicken and the egg question, how long have you actually had them and not known it. I was born with only part of my spinal cord developed, so I have many issues. The one thing that I can tell you is, when you have MRI's or any kind of test done, always get the copy and study it. your radiologist will never count them as causing any trouble, they see them they bypass them as you said the are considered nonsymtomatic. There are caused when the spine has had a severe attack, car wreck, fall, hit, any thing that is a drastic blow to the cord. the cord weakens and the spinal fluid starts to leak out, now knowing that our body wasn't prepared for our spinal fluid to float or run around in our body is a good thing cause it just don't do good for you. in fact leakage is a killer. but the cyst is the tarlov cyst, the spinal fluid actually forms a cyst that is attached to your spine and is filled with spinal fluid, they can get large or stay small, as they grow they squeeze or push on other nerves, anything that is in their way. The only thing that I've found for pain at least for me is tramadol, I cannot take narcotics. I've tried for a more healther approach, I've not been able to find any. They will interfere with a lot of your organs depending where they or it is. Uou never said I assume they didn't tell you. at least that is my case, I actually asked to see the screen so I seen them and couldn't count all of them but since the neurosurgeon didn't think it was causing my pain, he wouldn't even tell me where they were.

I hate to tell you, but at least in the usa, there is no cure, I know exactly how you feel, I now am 90% bed ridden. now there are a couple drs out there that are doing surgery PLEASE DO REASEARCH BEFORE YOU LET ANY DR TELL YOU THEY CAN CURE IT BY BINDING IT INSERTING NEEDLE AND TAKING THE FLUID OUT AND REFILING WITH EITHER FIBRIN GLUE! OR ONE IS TRYING FINALLY TO USE BODY FAT. THEY WILL RETURN AT SOME POINT WITH A VENGENCE. Do a lot of research on John Hopkins in Maryland. They are the first to try to study this in 1999. Just about the time that I was ready to go there they quit cause they were putting patients in wheelchair paralyzed or worse.

I wish I could have greater hope and intel for you, but an I know that saying this doesn't help. There are aprox 80% people in the world that have these some know, some don't. I will be very glad for you to write to my email and we can talk or if you learn something I'm still researching only now when I have the strength. but I have learnt a lot about my own body. THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I CAN OFFER ANYONE! DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT, ALWAYS LISTEN TO OTHERS ABOUT YOUR BODY. KNOW YOUR BODY!

Do research by family members, they had or didn't have. I know I didn't give you a lot of good news but at least you know there are many who are pushing for a cure. you need to not strain rest lots, do the normal things to stay healthy as you would, drink water, eat right all that stuff but I will be praying for you, in fact I belong to a group called NORD, NATIONAL ORGATION FOR RARE DISEASES, , which is funny cause the first one was discovered around the 30"s by Dr.tarlov. why it didn't go any further, I don't know. please let me know how you are doing, and if you have found any thing from this holistic approach or natural approach, I would love to have more infor. for me the pain is shocking 24/7/. never goes away. heat seems to help sometimes, cold helps sometimes, lol, but not for long. ifI you hav even one tarlov cyst I would wager you have another condition that you haven't found out about as of yet. Most of my study seems to go that way.

GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS, barb, usa

There is a doctor/surgeon in cyprus who is excellent at removals and operating on these when they are bad. Not cheap but worth it. Dr Frank Feyenbaum. It sure beats being in a state and in lots of pain. I thik I have a torval cyst, one, base of spine middle, tender, fluidy, and it gives me pain. Have been thinking of getting a tens machine to cope. But the thought of it getting worse and worse is awful.

I had a keloid cyst on my thumb at the base of the nail, about the size of a split pea. I put a few drops of Tea Tree oil on and kept it covered with a bandaid for a day (to keep the oil in place). Nothing happened for many weeks, but then it started flaking off gradually.


Terramin Clay  

Posted by Sarah (Xenia, Oh) on 07/07/2010

I read a post that mentioned terramin clay for cysts. I cannot find any information regarding this clay on your site. I have a cyst in my jaw joint (found by an MRI). They said that it actually is keeping my jaw from being in joint until I open it far enough for it to literally clunk. They said that when it clunks it is actually going into joint. In other words, my jaw is constantly out of joint unless I yawn or open wide for another reason. Insurance will not pay for any TMJ treatment since it is not "medical". Well, I prefer more natural methods than surgery and would like to know more about how this clay works and if it would help me get rid of this cyst. I have tingling, numbness, and intermittent pain.

I have had a small cyst on my chest for years that became painfully infected. I put turmeric powder directly on it for a few days but when it started to drain the powder would stick and tear away skin too. So I mixed the turmeric with coconut oil and applied under a bandage twice a day. It took about 5 weeks altogether but it cured the infection really well. The cyst is about half the size it was before the infection.
