How To Heal Ovarian Cysts From The Root + My Personal Healing Story
There is a ton of information on social media and the internet about how an ovarian cyst is formed and the process of getting it surgically removed but very little information on how to heal it naturally.
Unfortunately, doctors don't and won't tell you there are other alternatives to reducing the size of the cysts that you can try instead of surgery.
They jump straight to "if this cyst doesn't reduce in size within one month, we're going to have to operate." Leaving you feeling helpless and at the mercy of their prognosis. Luckily, there is another way, MANY other ways.
The truth is, there is so much you can do and try before it comes down to a surgeon cutting into your body. As you may already know or have heard from many experts in energy medicine, otherwise known as energy healing, you have the power to heal your own body, and we all do.
In November 2019, I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst on my right ovary. It had ruptured, and after about 30 minutes of extreme pain followed by two days of swelling from my lower abdomen up to my stomach to the point where I could barely move, I decided to go to the emergency room.
At this point, I had no idea what was wrong, and I thought the pain and swelling were caused by something I had eaten. After 8 hours in the ER, I was told I had a cyst and that if it did not reduce in size within 30 days, they would need to operate.
Instantly I knew this was not an option for me, and I did not want to operate and decided to seek alternative options.
Surgery can be a lifesaver, and I would never turn it down under urgent conditions, but this was not one of those times. I instinctively knew I could do so much more before resorting to surgery...I at least needed to try.
I quickly researched on google and came across castor oil, which is known to reduce the size of cysts. The next day I started doing castor oil packs daily, and when I returned to the doctor, the cyst was completely gone.
Now. As this is very important, I want to mention that I do not give 100% credit to castor oil in reducing the size of the cysts. There is no one cure-all solution, and it must be accessed from a whole-body perspective to tackle the disease: mind, body, and energy.
I believe castor oil helped reduce the cysts' size and everything else I'm about to mention kept it from returning.
So what did I do, exactly? As I mentioned, I used castor oil packs for about 1 hour daily.
Additionally, I cut out all non-organic and processed foods, and
I threw out all plastics, hair, skin, and cleaning products with chemicals and now only use "clean" products on my body.
Did you know that estrogen dominance is a cause of ovarian cysts?
Estrogen dominance occurs when the body produces excess estrogen. The chemicals in our cookware, plastic containers, beauty, and cleaning products carry xeno-estrogens, which imitate estrogen in the body.
Having an excess of estrogen can lead to reproductive conditions such as ovarian cysts, endometriosis, fibroids, fertility issues, and much more!
This next one was huge for me, not to say the others mentioned above were less critical because everything I did, contributed to healing the cyst. However, I do feel that if I had not acknowledged my emotional (energy) body, the cyst would have probably resurfaced.
You have probably noticed that your body will begin to manifest physical symptoms when something mentally or emotionally is troubling you, such as a cold, muscle tension, pain in the body, joint pain, digestion issues, etc.
The cyst was trying to communicate an important message to me. It was there for a reason, and there is always a reason or a message behind every physical manifestation.
So I turned to EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Since I was already familiar with EFT Tapping, I knew this would be an excellent tool for accessing my subconscious mind and understanding what my ovary was trying to communicate.
As I began tapping, I felt sadness, despair, rage, anger, guilt, and shame, and it erupted out of me repeatedly in never-ending waves. Eventually, I stopped tapping and knew that the inner work I had done on myself that evening would have tremendous results. And so it did.
You can try many energy healing modalities out there, and EFT is one of the great ones I love.
Some other great options for self-discovery and self-healing are:
- Emotion Code
- Ecstatic Dance
- Art therapy
- Being out in nature (Forest Bathing)
I wish you a deep healing journey.
