How to Help Ovarian Cysts Naturally and Safely with Herbs and Supplements…

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled growths in a woman’s ovaries. This may happen in just one or both of the ovaries. Usually ovarian cysts are harmless and often go away on their own. Sometimes though ovarian cysts can grow so much they rupture, or cause damage to the ovary. They may grow so much they cause displacement of the reproductive organs or twist themselves. Damage from a ruptured ovarian cyst may cause scar tissue build-up, and/or the formation of adhesion, attaching the ovary to other parts of the internal body.

Ovarian cysts are most common in women of childbearing years, but can rarely develop in postmenopausal women. A woman’s ovaries are about the size and shape of an almond. It is amazing that something so small and delicate can hold thousands of eggs at birth. It is also quite amazing that something so small can develop a cyst. In fact ovarian cysts can become quite large over time. Thankfully there are natural remedies that can help your body to rid itself of the cysts naturally and without surgery.

Types of Ovarian Cysts

Functional Ovarian Cysts
During a woman’s natural cycle the ovaries produce follicles, which are like a cyst and contain the egg to be released during ovulation. As ovulation nears the follicle begins to grow. Follicles also produce and release both estrogen and progesterone. An ovarian cyst that forms due to a malfunction in the follicle is known as a functional cyst. There are two types of functional cysts:

    Follicular cyst: This happens when the follicle fails to rupture and release the egg at ovulation, it continues to grow forming a cyst.

    Corpus Luteum cyst: This happens when the follicle does release the egg at ovulation. The follicle changes to what is called the corpus luteum. The opening in the follicle where the egg was released seals off, accumulating fluid, causing the corpus luteum to grow into a cyst.

Other Types of Ovarian Cysts
There are other types of cysts that form on the ovaries, but they are not related to the menstrual cycle.

    Dermoid cyst: These cysts are considered complex and develop from cells that produce human eggs. Because of this these types of cyst may contain hair, teeth, or skin. They are rarely cancerous.

    Cystadenomas: This type of cyst develops from ovarian tissue and is filled with liquid or mucous.

    Endometriomas: This type of cyst forms when endometrial cells attach to the ovary and form a growth (endometriosis). This type of ovarian cyst is commonly called a chocolate cyst.

The above 3 types of ovarian cysts may cause damage to the ovary, including twisting, scar tissue and adhesion formation. Both Dermoid and Cystadenomas may cause the ovary to become very large and displaced. These types of cysts are considered more complex and usually do not respond to natural therapies as well. It is best to work with your doctor regarding these types of cysts.

    Polycystic ovaries: This is associated with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, the ovary may be enlarged, usually twice the size of a normal ovary. A polycystic ovary develops many small cysts in a row, looking like a strand of pearls on the surface of the ovary. PCOS is a common endocrine disorder. Not all women diagnosed with PCOS have ovaries that have these types of cysts. For more information specifically on this condition, please click here…

What Causes Ovarian Cysts?

  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Early menstruation (11 years or younger)
  • Increased upper body fat
  • Infertility treatment with gonadotropins, this may cause multiple large cysts.
  • Use of Clomiphene (Clomid, Serophene) has been shown to increase the risk for development of Corpus Luteum cyst.
  • Use of Tamoxifen for breast cancer

Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cysts

Most women that have ovarian cysts don’t even know. Usually there are no signs of symptoms. Most ovarian cysts are discovered during a routine physical exam. The larger a cyst is the more likely it is to cause symptoms. Symptoms may be:

  • Pelvic pain, usually on the side where the cyst is present. Pain may be sharp, sudden or come and go throughout the cycle.
  • Irregular menstrual cycles.
  • Anovulatory cycles may signal follicular cyst. Charting your cycle can help you to determine if you are having anovulatory cycles.
  • Pelvic pain after intercourse or strenuous exercise.
  • Nausea and vomiting, this usually happens after a cyst ruptures.
  • Vaginal pain with spotty bleeding.
  • Pressure and/or abdominal bloating, may be noticeable on one side or the other.
  • Pain or pressure in the abdomen when urinating or having a bowel movement.
  • Infertility

Note: See a doctor immediately if you have excruciating pain, nausea, vomiting and/or bleeding from the vagina during any point in your cycle.

How are Ovarian Cysts Diagnosed?

If you suspect you have an ovarian cyst doctors have many diagnostic tools. Here are some tests your doctor may perform:

  • Endovaginal Ultrasound uses a vaginal ultrasound probe is inserted into the vagina. This type of ultrasound has been found to produce a better image of ovarian cysts that ultrasound through the abdominal wall.
  • Laparoscopic surgery may be performed to determine the type of cyst and to take a biopsy.
  • CT or MRI may be used if there is further concern.
  • Serum CA-125 assay is a blood test to determine if the cyst is cancerous. This test is not always accurate because elevated levels of CA-125 may also signal the presence of uterine fibroids, adenomyosis or endometriosis.

Medical Options for Ovarian Cyst Treatment

The number one medical treatment for functional ovarian cysts is to prescribe birth control pills. This prevents ovulation, therefore the formation of functional ovarian cysts cannot happen. This presents a problem though, one it prevents pregnancy, and two may cause long-term hormonal imbalance, and three, it does not solve the root of the cause.

If an ovarian cyst becomes too large or is considered to be at a higher risk for rupture, is a complex cyst, or has twisted or become adhered to other parts of the internal body, a doctor may choose to remove it surgically. Your doctor will be able to help you to determine your best options.

How Natural Therapies May Help with Ovarian Cysts

For functional cysts there are natural options that are very effective. We like to approach it at two different levels. Clearing out and prevention. In this guide you will learn how to clear out excess estrogens and cysts while working to prevent future ones from being created. This therapy usually has results in 3 months, but should only be done prior to trying to conceive.

  • Reduces excess estrogens
  • Promotes hormonal balance
  • Reduces cyst size and growth
  • Least invasive
  • Very effective
  • No side effects

How to Help Ovarian Cysts Naturally…

Step One: Reduce Estrogen

Excess estrogen in one of the main culprits to causing hormonal imbalance which then causes disordered ovulation. One of the best ways to rid the body of excess estrogens is to stop exposing yourself to xenohormones and taking a supplement called DIM.

Avoid exposure to estrogens and xenoestrogens

  • Stop eating soy foods
  • Eat only organic meats and dairy
  • Do not microwave foods in plastic
  • Stop drinking water from plastic bottles
  • Avoid mineral oil and perabens in skin care products
  • Use natural detergents.

DIM: DIM helps to clear the body of these excess estrogens, aiding in hormonal balance and reducing the promotion of cyst growth. DIM should be taken daily for at least three months along with lifestyle changes which include avoiding xenoestrogens found in products, foods and the environment.

Step Two: Increase progesterone and balance hormones

Natural Progesterone: When there is excess estrogen in the body, there is usually also progesterone deficiency. Balancing your estrogen and progesterone levels by using natural progesterone will help reduce the ovarian cysts and reduce the chances of them occurring in the future. Use of natural progesterone cream helps to increase progesterone levels.

Dr. John Lee recommends natural progesterone as one of the best treatments for ovarian cysts. One of the ways to use natural progesterone is to “trick” the body into thinking it is pregnant. By taking natural progesterone from days 10-26 of the cycle the body thinks it is pregnant and stops ovulating. If no ovulation occurs, no follicle occurs and no ovarian cysts can be created.

This is a short term treatment and is best done in conjunction with the other supportive supplements to help prevent them from coming back and to help the body remove the cysts so you can begin trying to conceive. Remember, while you are following this treatment you will not be ovulating, so you will not be able to get pregnant while you are following Dr. Lee’s protocol. If you would like to learn more about how Dr. John Lee treats ovarian cysts with natural progesterone cream, please consider purchasing his book on natural progesterone at his website.

Supportive Herbs for Ovarian Cysts

Now that the symptom is covered let’s look at balancing the body so we can help prevent future cysts. Consider an herbal program for preventing ovarian cysts from forming in the first place.

We like to use herbs to help nourish the endocrine system, promote hormonal balance, regular ovulation, and promote proper circulation to the reproductive organs. Also consider herbs that are detoxifying to the liver for improved hormonal balance. Ovarian cysts are a considered a state of stagnation in the body, both in the liver and circulation to the reproductive organs. The herbs below have been found supportive for supporting proper menstrual cycles, reduction in ovarian pain, increased circulation to the reproductive organs and supportive of liver function.

    Maca root (Lepidium meyenii): Maca is a great fertility herb that helps the body produce progesterone and balance hormones without containing any hormones itself. I also believe that maca helps natural progesterone to work better by nourishing the endocrine system. Maca should be taken daily, 2,000-3,000mg.

    Black Cohosh root (Actaea racemosa): Promotes regulation of the entire menstrual cycle. Black cohosh is excellent for relieving ovarian pain.

    Dong Quai root (Angelica sinensis): Aids in hormonal balance. Dong Quai is specific for congestive fertility states. Supports healthy circulation to the reproductive organs. Reduction in pain associated with reproductive organs.

    Milk Thistle seed (Silybum marianum): Supports hormonal balance. Milk thistle is one of the best plants for liver health. Liver health is vital for hormonal balance. The liver helps to filter toxins from the body, including excess hormones.

    Tribulus, aerial parts and fruit (Tribulus terrestris): Tribulus has been found to normalize ovulation when used prior to ovulation. One study performed on 36 women who were not ovulating, showed that that 67% realized normal ovulation after only 2-3 months of consistent use. Tribulus has also been found to be a nourishing tonic for the female reproductive system as a whole, especially concerning the ovaries.

    Vitex, Chaste tree berry (Vitex agnus-castus): Vitex aids in regulating hormonal balance, promotes ovulation, improves timing of the menstrual cycle.

    Wild Yam root (Dioscorea villosa): Wild Yam promotes a healthy menstrual cycle, reduces ovarian pain.

    Yarrow aerial parts (Achillea millefolium): Yarrow relieves pelvic congestion, improves the entire menstrual cycle timing.

Step Three: Dissolve and Reduce Cysts

There are two natural therapies that have been used time and time again to help the body break down the cysts, reduce their size and may help them to disappear all together.

Systemic Enzyme Therapy: Systemic enzymes contain a special enzyme that breakdown tissues in the body that are not supposed to be there. It also eats away at the cysts reducing their size or eliminating them over time. With ovarian cysts it is important to also make sure you are reducing the estrogen coming in your body and actively getting rid of excess estrogens; this can be done with the estrogen metabolizer DIM and progesterone.

Castor Oil Pack: Castor Oil Packs are an ancient therapy that helps to cleanse and heal the body where they are placed. The castor oil has a drawing power the clears the body of excess tissues and toxins. Castor oil packs stimulate the lymphatic and circulatory system. The lymphatic system removes toxins and waste from the area stimulated by the castor oil pack. The promotion of circulation by the castor oil pack will also bring in fresh oxygenated, nutrient rich blood to the reproductive organs, including the ovaries. This is vital to reducing and dissolving ovarian cysts. Do not use during menstruation.

Summary

We have learned the main cause of functional cysts is hormonal imbalance, which disrupts the natural menstrual cycle and may lead to the formation of ovarian cysts. It is vital to bring the body back to a state of balance to prevent the formation of ovarian cysts.

1. Reduce excess estrogen in the body by avoiding exposure to xenoestrogens and naturally promoting healthy estrogen metabolism through the use of DIM.

2. Increase progesterone levels and support hormonal balance overall. Consider the benefits of natural progesterone supplementation and herbs for hormonal balance and reduction in cyst formation.

3. Dissolve and reduce ovarian cysts through Systemic Enzyme Therapy and Castor Oil Packs.

Ovarian Cyst Natural Therapies Check list

Daily:

1. DIM – 1 capsule 2 times a day with food
2. Maca – 2 capsules a day
3. Systemic Enzyme Therapy – 3 tablets 2 times a day between meals

Apply 40mg Progesterone cream a day: 20mg twice a day, one 20mg application in the morning and one 20mg application at night, for a total of 40mg of natural progesterone a day. This method of progesterone therapy may be best done for three months and then discontinued after that. This type of application is meant to suppress ovulation, so do not use progesterone in this way when you are trying to become pregnant.

6 times a month for 3 months:

Castor oil pack- Use the castor oil pack 30 minutes a day for at least 6 days of the month any time after menstruation. Apply for a total of 3 months.

  1. Hi,
    I was diagnosed with 3 complex cysts on the right ovary, 2-3cm, and 1 complex cyst on the left ovary measuring 6cm and have been infertile for 10 years. I recently learned about eating healthy and removing excess estrogen from the body. I consulted a naturopath in the US (I live in Canada) who placed me on wild yam, pau d’arco, evening prime rose and yarrow (I also have endometriosis and multiple fibroids). I have been trying my best to eat healthy, stay away from dairy and meat and use the castor oil pack. All effort has only helped with the symptoms, completely stopped the pains and made my period more regular and without clothing, but the cysts are still there. What else can I do to shrink them?

    • Dear Ayi,

      It is wonderful that you have seen results even if the end result has not yet been achieved.
      We feel it best that because you are currently working with a healthcare practitioner and they have you on a program, it is best to follow that program for the suggested amount of time before you change it or start a different program. Patience is key!

      Consider taking this article into your naturopath to discuss anything noted here of interest.

      All our best to you!

  2. I am a Nigerian woman of childbearing age. I had a full abdominal scan of late after some compliant of irregular menstrual cycle, which was as a result of the Postenor 2 tablet I took some month ago, and was told that I had ovarian cyst. The doctor assures me that it will resolve within the shortest time. I need to know, what are those local food (diet) I can eat/drink to help the situation and the food I need to do away with.

    • Dear Abioye,

      It is true that the body may naturally dissolve the cyst. Each menstrual cycle as a woman approaches ovulation, a cyst naturally forms on the ovary and often goes away completely after ovulation. It is when these cysts become numerous or the body is not able to dissolve them that may be concern.

      We support eating a Fertility Diet rich in fresh, whole foods, organic when possible. This diet is filled with vegetables, fruit, whole grains, fiber, healthy fats and even some animal products. Click here to learn about the Fertility Diet… Some of the specific foods discussed may not be readily available to you, but know that the focus is on eating as clean diet packed with whole, fresh foods and limiting processed foods.

  3. Hello
    I was on the DepoProvera birth control just over a year ago I got off of it. Since that time I have endured constant bleeding. I was put on several birth control pills which did not help. I had blood work done and all of my levels came back within normal limits. I also had an ultrasound done showing several ovarian cysts. The pain comes and goes but being sexually active makes the pain unbearable. I am not trying to get pregnant. I was told birth control pills can help with the cysts however they have estrogen in them and I have been on progesterone pills. I was told to wait a two months then go on the pills. If they didn’t work before should I go on them again? What should I do?

    • Dear Kala,

      I am sorry you are going through this. We are not qualified to guide you in using birth control. If you wish to try this suggested plan it is going to be best to talk to your doctor of pharmacist about it.

      If interested in a more natural approach to supporting your body, it would be best to work one on one with a fertility herbalist, even if not trying to conceive, who can help you learn ways to control the constant bleeding you experience and also support the body in achieving an healthy ovarian environment. Consider learning more about a Fertility Consultation.

      The article How to Balance Your Hormones After Birth Control may be helpful as well.

      I hope you will consider a Fertility Consultation for personalized guidance and support.

  4. My daughter has had 6 ovarian cyst ruptures. Two when she was 14. She is 17 and has had 4 more in a yr (May, Nov, Feb, and now June). The ultrasound showed fluid around her right ovary, proof that this is ruptured cysts. There seem to be small cysts in each ovary per the report. I don’t care to put her on bc pills (estrogen) but the pain is so great when they rupture that it requires heavy meds (morphine when at the hospital or oxycodone if at home). I think I need to order a hormone saliva test to see if her horm are out of balance. If I try the steps do I skip the progesterone since she is not attempting to get pregnant? Suggestions please!

    • Dear Corinne,

      Thank you for reaching out to us and for being such a source of support for your daughter.

      We recommend anyone interested in natural therapies under the age of 18 work with a natural health care practitioner in conjunction with their medical doctor. Teens are still developing in many ways, including hormonally. We are not able to suggest our products, or guide her best because there are too many changes taking place in their developing bodies.

      Consider also learning more about making healthy natural therapy choices for teens.

      All out best to you both!

  5. Hi there! I have been diagnosed with a cyst in my ovary approx. 6 months back. I went through ultrasound and it doesn’t seem to be very big as also explained by my doctor. However, now I see many new developments such as putting on 5 kgs (11 pounds) of weight all of a sudden, menstrual cycle is completely irregular, etc. I want to know if I can take any of these mentioned herbs without any doctor guidance. I am also finding it difficult to find Maca root in Canada. Please advise. Thanks.

    • Dear Neeti,

      Many do seek the guidance of their doctor when choosing to try herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies to support their bodies and fertility health, and many others do not. This is completely up to you. It is common for some doctors not to know much about herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies, or be hesitant to suggest they be tried. Then again, some do know a bit and are more open to offering guidance and support.

      I am sorry, I do not know from where Maca root is available in Canada, but Fertility Maca products can be shipped to Canada from the Natural Fertility Shop.

  6. Hi! I am 24 years old and I am have not been able to conceive for the last 3 years. Last month I had a cyst on my right ovary. How can I dissolve this cyst in natural way. I am very tensed about aspiration of cyst. Please suggest a good way.

    • Dear Devi,

      Know that the ovary always naturally produces a cysts as a result of ovulation. These are most often remedied on their own. You said, “last month, I had a cyst on my right ovary…” If it is still there or the body is not naturally taking care of it on its own, the suggestion in this article may be helpful. Consider re-reading this article or working one on one with a fertility herbalist through a Fertility Consultation to determine the best natural therapy program for your specific needs.

  7. What might be an effective and appropriate natural treatment protocol to consider using when a woman (me) suffers from both ovarian cysts and Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis? What helps one condition would seem to exacerbate the other, and I have found it terribly challenging and emotionally exhausting to get back on the road to better health and quality of life having to walk the tight wire between these two conditions. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    • Hello,

      To be honest, it would not be appropriate in this case to suggest a natural treatment protocol. In your case, it would be best to seek the help of a naturopathic doctor that specializes in autoimmune disorders. There are just too many factors at play here to offer you a generalized protocol, which in the end may make matters worse. An ND is a great option when you want to get your health back on track with natural options.

      All the best!

  8. Hi! I am 18 years old and not able to conceive for last 1 and half year. Last month I had a cyst in my left ovary. It dissolved and now it’s completely finished. My doctor did my ultrasound and she told me that everything is ok. Can I use castor oil pack for fertility?

    • Dear Eman,

      The body is known to sometimes be able to dissolve ovarian cysts on its own. It is great that this has been your experience!
      Castor Oil Therapy could be considered to support overall reproductive system health, as could the other tips offered in this article to try to prevent cysts from recurring.

      All my best!

  9. Dear Person in Charge:

    I came across this article and I got interested in its theraputic potential.
    I have a 7cm mucinous cyst in my right ovary, it grew back after 2 months after my 4th operation in Feb 2015. I am not keen to go under the knife again and I hope for a natural way to prevent ovarian cysts from growing bigger and also to dissolve the cysts.

    Will the following treatment that you suggesed on the website work for me? Progesterone cream, Chaste Berry (which I bought), Milk Thistle (which I bought) , MACA, DIM and systemic enzyme therapy.

    Will like to seek your advice before I proceed to buy from the products from you.

    Thank you
    Regards
    Christine

    • Dear Christine,

      Thank you for reaching out to us!

      While surgery often brings great relief, which is much needed for many, it is not known to address the underlying hormone imbalance that contributes to the recurrence of certain fertility health issues. It is because we know this that the program outlined in this article was created. The herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies discussed here are known to support the body’s natural ability to achieve hormone balance, reduce excess estrogen and maintain normal progesterone levels, while also encouraging normal circulation to the reproductive system – all beneficial for a healthy ovarian function and environment.

  10. Hiya,
    I have 2 endometriosis cysts on my ovaries. Right cyst is 6cm X 8cm. Left Cyst is 5cm X 6cm. I have very heavy periods with blood clots every month. Have very severe stomach cramps before and during my periods and sometimes vomit. I wanted to know if there are any herbal remedies to get rid of the cysts altogether. Also get rid of the pain. I do not want surgery to remove them, which is the option doctor suggesting because of the pain the cysts are giving me. Is there certain foods that make the cysts worse?

    • Hello Sukhi!

      I am sorry for all you experience as a result of these cysts and hormonal imbalance. Excess estrogen in one of the main culprits in causing not only endometrioma growth, but also hormonal imbalance which then can lead to disordered ovulation. Consider learning how to support the body’s natural ability to remove excess estrogen from the body, in maintaining its natural inflammatory response, providing it relief from occasional discomfort in the reproductive system and encouraging normal circulation, helping to bring fresh blood and oxygen to the reproductive system.

  11. Hi! I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts on both sides, with the right side being a bit large at 3.8cm. I started taking the following supplements as directed for about a week and half. They are: DIM, Milk Thistle and Women’s Best Friend (I also have adenomyosis). In addition, I apply Natural Progesterone Cream twice a day from Day 10-26. My period was on time, but unusually painful on the lower abdominal area, especially the right side. Nothing has changed in terms of life style or diet. I wonder if the supplements would cause cramps to be more severe? Should I be taking these supplements while menstruating? Thanks.

    • Dear Jenny,

      The supplements mentioned are not known to be a cause of menstrual cramps. The body may be responding to their actions and as a result temporary menstrual cycle shifts may occur. There may also be the possibility for a temporary exacerbation of the symptoms of estrogen dominance as the body works to balance hormones.

      In general we do not feel the following supplements/herbs, Women’s Best Friend and natural progesterone cream, should be continued during menstruation.

      Take care!

  12. Hello my name is Dorina my doctor did a bunch a test followed by an ultrasound it shows I have a very large cyst on my ovary. A specialist recommended I going to surgery to remove my ovary along with the cyst. I do not want to go under the knife is there a natural way for me to shrink the size of the cyst and get rid of it altogether. I am 51 years old by the way thank you
    Dorina

    • Dear Dorina,

      Depending on the size of the cyst, natural therapies alone may not be all the support the body needs. Herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies can be considered in preparation for a procedure and following to support the body in keeping cysts from growing back. The guidance offered in this article can be considered although it may be best to work one on one with a natural healthcare practitioner near you to devise the best program from your needs.

      All my best!

  13. Please, could you help me with Ovarian Cysts?

  14. Hi,
    I was wondering if I could use your self fertility massage to help get rid of an ovarian cyst I have? I just had a cycle of IVF cancelled due to it. I know a lot of your therapies are for natural fertility as opposed to IVF so I just wanted to check if its safe for me to do the castor oil treatment and self massage?

    Thanks

    • Dear Joanne,

      A Castor Oil Pack and Self Fertility Massage are used to stimulate the circulatory system in support of increased circulation and promoting healing of the tissues and organs under which they are applied, including the ovaries. These natural therapies are one part of a natural fertility program to support healthy ovaries.

  15. Thank you Elizabeth! How do I know when to apply the progesterone cream if I don’t have a period? I am 43 y.o. and I believe, like my Mom was, I am peri-menopausal. I have right ovarian cyst for about 4 years now. It’s a medium size, but the pain when I am sexually excited, gets worse. Also, can I use wild yam cream instead of natural progesterone? Thanks ahead!

    • Dear Olie!

      You are most welcome! With no period at all, or absent menstruation, then you would choose a date and work from there counting the days of use on the calendar.

      Wild yam cream is not the same as progesterone cream. There is a substance called diosgenin in soybeans and wild yams that is extracted and then modified in a laboratory to create the progesterone found in natural progesterone creams. Your body is not able to turn diosgenin directly from wild yam cream into hormones itself.

      I hope this too is helpful!

    • Thank you so much for your great answers!! I noticed that progesterone cream also contains soy, which is contradictory since soy has estrogen. What would you recommend here? Thanks a lot.

    • Hello Olie!

      The bio-identical USP progesterone in both Fertilica Natural Progestorone cream and Emerita Pro-Gest is derived from mexican wild yams, not soy.

  16. Please give me advice because I have a dermoid cyst on my ovary. What naturally can I do to remove it. I don’t have a baby, I’m 33 years old. Please give me advice!

    Also, what ginger is used, ginger tea or natural ginger?

    • Dear Sheryll,

      I am sorry you are having to deal with this fertility health issue.

      Dermoid cysts may cause the ovary to become very large and displaced. A dermoid cyst is considered more complex and usually does not respond to natural therapies as well as other forms of ovarian cysts. It will be best to work with your doctor regarding managing your cyst.

      I am not sure what form of ginger Hanim used, but I suspect it was fresh ginger root.

      Take care!

  17. Ginger what? Ginger tea or fresh brewed ginger?

  18. Information it’s very helpful

  19. I had lots of cysts for over 15 years. I started drinking ginger with lemon and warm water first thing in the morning and have done so for 6 months. My last period was so painful and very heavy. After my period was finished, I went to the doctor and he said that all my cysts were gone. I was so happy! I’m pain free and cyst free naturally. :)
