Epsom salt worked! I discovered my ganglion cyst on my ankle in April- I really did not see it before then and was shocked to see a big round thing on my ankle...i soon discovered what it was. I never thought anything would work but I figured id give it a try before visiting my doctor.

A spoon of epsom salt dissolved in some water did the trick. I added a bit of my mud bath powder to it to get a pasty consistency. I applied the paste to the ganglion cyst and wrapped a bandage around it. I did this for a few nights in a row.

During the day I applied frankincense oil to the cyst. within a few days it got softer and smaller. I continued just applying the oil and the epsom salt solution alternately during the day and both at night. I stopped using the bandage. nNw a few weeks later, it is no longer visible.

I promised myself if it works I'll write about it! So I hope it help someone out there.

Dorsal ganglion cyst on wrist: Yes indeed, a pinch of Epsom Salts in water or juice twice a day for around a week reduced the very large, hard ganglion I have had for nearly a year to a small smooth bump which is hardly noticeable. I shall continue and see if there is a total reduction, but already I am surprised and delighted.

I had a ganglion cyst... And it dissapeared! ... With the combination of full glass of water to 1/4 teaspoon of Epson Salt! ... It took about 2 plus months and I am very happy! Thank you! ... I was worring with surgery options that I did not want to do!
