If you are an unfortunate victim of Ovarian Cysts, you must be aware of the meager amount of help that conventional medicines provide in this regard. In fact, ovarian cysts are very common in women and so a considerable part of our population is on a constant strife with this widespread disease. In fact, ovarian sacs are the small entities that retain the maturing egg and that develop on the ovary when ovulation is in progress. An ovarian cyst is basically an ovarian sac that has swollen for one reason or the other.
Sometime these cysts are linked to ovarian cancer and infertility. This makes them a highly dreaded disease. Most conventional medicines tend to tackle the menstrual cycle with a view to countering the problem of cysts, but in vain. These cysts have been linked to hormonal imbalance and therefore Vitamin B and E come in handy for such a purpose, as they have been known to control hormones in our body. They are also beneficial particularly for the ovaries and liver. It does not mean that you start taking supplements indiscriminately. You just proceed the natural way. Increase the intake of wholegrains in your diet that are a rich source of these important vitamins. Mind you such a strategy can create wonders if followed with consistency.
To tackle the pain and discomfort that goes along with this condition, warm baths and the use of hot water bottles should be encouraged and over the counter medicines should be taken in limited quantities and only in case of excessive discomfort. Similarly, you should avoid constipation to develop in you as it can aggravate the discomfort that is so characteristic of this disease. Whenever you feel pressure in your bladder, urinate as soon as possible and don’t allow the pressure to build up.
Herbal tea also soothes the uneasy condition as ingredients like mint and raspberry are proven muscle and mood soothers. However, alcohol and caffeine should be minimized and care should be taken that you don’t develop preference for sugar even in your homemade recipes. Most of the cysts don’t develop into cancer and are benign, but still you shouldn’t be careless and if the condition does not improve even after following home remedies, you should take the services of a qualified specialist.
It has also been seen that these cysts keep on growing back no matter what specialist treatment you undergo. In such a case, home remedies alone can relieve you of the pain and discomfort without any side effects. But please keep one thing in mind. Do keep on undergoing tests occasionally to check if the cysts are still benign or are developing a cancerous tendency. If, God forbid, cancerous cysts occur, highly specialist treatment is the best option. But even in this case natural remedies should not be shunned away completely as they always keep on playing their part silently.
