Liquid sulfur, prescribed by my naturopathic doctor for my ganglion, relieved the swelling, redness and pain in less than three days.
Ganglion Cyst: I had raised painless red lumps on both thumbs near the joint, I read the posts on Epsom salts treatment which are full of magnesium, & thought it would be easier to take magnesium tablets. I took two 500mg tablets a day- one in the morning, the other at night. After 3 days I thought the lumps looked slightly smaller. I continued taking the tablets. After 3 weeks the lumps were now gone, but the skin was still red. I continued taking the tablets & after another couple of weeks the redness was totally gone.
I now take a maintenance dose of one tablet daily, & now several months later they have not returned.
I had a small but slowly growing ganglion cyst just on my wrist at the crease mark area. I tried a few remedies over the past two years that I read on the Earth Clinic site like massage, banging it with a book (hilarious) and rubbing frankincense oil on it every night. Nothing made a dent, just like everyone reports.
Tonight I looked at my wrist and realized my ganglion cyst has COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED! There are only 2 recent changes I have made, so it's either one of the following OR the combination that dissolved the cyst.
1. I started using light weights at the gym for my arms. I do forearm lifts using a 10 lb weight. I have been doing this for the past 2 months, two or three times a week.
2. I take a nattokinase supplement, half dose, every other day. I don't like to take too much of it because it causes a small cut to bleed more than normal. I have also been taking the past few months.
I am very happy about this! I had been told surgery was my only option.
I will update everyone in case I stop doing one or both of these things and it starts to come back or if I can pinpoint whether it was the nattokinase or the weight lifting that dissolved the cyst. For now I can happily report a 100% cure. Yea, ganglion cyst be gone!
