Herbal Remedies for Ovarian Cyst
An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that develops on the ovary at the site of a egg-containing follicle. Ovarian cysts are usually not disease-related and often regress on their own.
Western medicine is uncertain about what causes ovarian cysts to form, but in Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is thought to be a stagnation of blood and vital energy and accumulation of phlegm. The strategy for treatment, then, is to invigorate the blood and vital energy in the area with the use of hydrotherapy, massage, acupuncture, and blood-moving oils. Local immune stimulants such as castor oil packs can also help remove the cysts. Herbs to regulate the hormones and invigorate the vital energy in the pelvic area are also recommended.
