It is possible to use natural remedies to treat your ovarian cysts that work just as well, if not even better that what your doctor may have been prescribing for you.
I once suffered from ovarian cysts and know that the pain can be excruciating. The last time I had it I was rolling in the floor at work, not caring who was watching.
Before we talk about the best Ovarian Cyst Natural Treatment, let us answer the question - what are ovarian cysts? Ovarian cysts are small fluid filled sacs, which are usually non-malignant or cancerous in nature but can be very painful. The pain also tends to coincide with your menstrual cycle.
They are more common in women within the age range of 30 -60 years, tend to form on the ovaries, and can be in single or multiples.
What causes ovarian cysts? When the ovaries are functioning normally they produce an egg every month. During ovulation, a cyst-like structure called a follicle is formed inside the ovary.
This mature follicle then ruptures to release an egg and the shell that is left behind is called corpus luteum.
If pregnancy does not occur the corpus luteum, dissolves away. When the corpus luteum does not dissolve, as it should it forms what is known as ovarian cysts.
What are the common symptoms and treatments?
It is important to bear in mind that you may not experience all the symptoms listed below. The number and the intensity of the symptoms tend to vary from woman to woman but the most common ones are:
1. Pain in the lower abdominal region: Usually a constant or intermittent dull ache that may radiate from your lower abdomen to your lower back and thighs. You may also experience pelvic pain shortly before your period begins or just before it ends and sometimes during intercourse.
2. Fullness or heaviness in the abdomen, a feeling of being bloated.
3. Delayed, irregular, or unusually painful periods.
4. Torsion: An excruciating pain when the cysts get twisted blocking the flow of blood to the cysts.
Ovarian Cysts Natural Treatment - Useful Nutritional Supplements.
Vitamins and minerals can help you maintain proper nutrition and this is particularly important if you have ovarian cysts. Vitamin C in particular helps the immune system, and aid the normal functioning of the body. This could help prevent ovarian cysts from ever forming.
Zinc assists in cell growth while the egg is maturing and aids in limiting free-radical damage to DNA as well.
Similarly, the B-vitamins help to maintain the balance of hormone levels in the body. They do this by assisting the liver in converting large amounts of estrogens in the blood stream into less harmful susbstances.
