The removal of ovarian cysts can sometimes be a complicated matter, especially if your doctor wants to remove one or both of your ovaries instead of removing the cysts. If you are looking for a solution to this problem, then I will share with you the natural methods to rid yourself of these growths.
If you are a woman who is still interested in having children, then the removal of your ovaries is not an option, not to mention the hormonal consequences of losing your ovaries.
An ovary may need to be removed if it is causing severe pain or if the doctor suspects cancer. There are two methods to remove an ovarian cyst, laparoscopic or open surgery. The method will depend on the type and condition of the cysts.
o Laparoscopic surgery is a procedure where a small incision is made on your stomach and a thin tube with a camera on the end called a laparoscope will be inserted to locate the cysts. Once the cyst has been located the doctor will make one or two more small incisions, and insert surgical tools to remove the cysts.
o Open surgery is more invasive than laparoscopic surgery and often done for larger cysts. The procedure consists of the doctor making a cut in the abdomen, and separating the abdominal muscles, and opening up the abdomen. The next steps will be to remove the cyst, and close the incision with stitches or staples.
Your doctor may not have told you that most ovarian cysts go away on their own, and the good news is you do not necessarily have to undergo surgery or hormonal therapy. Hormonal therapy used over a long period of time can have a wide range of side effects.
It is not necessary to live with abdominal pain, bloating, fatigue, or anxiety of ovarian cysts. Many women have successfully turned to natural methods to rid themselves of their cysts. There are a number of different natural remedies you can turn to, such as Chasteberry, which seems to be the most popular herb for the treatment of ovarian cysts.
Natural remedies take time to dissolve the cyst. The use of a heating pad or taking a nice hot tub bath, but not so hot that it is uncomfortable, can be beneficial in relieving abdominal pain until the cysts dissolve. Herbal tea is also good for the pain. Increasing fiber and water intake is also a good way to reduce stomach pressure.
The biggest benefit of natural treatment for ovarian cysts is that it provides a solution that will allow you to keep your ovaries. The cause of cysts can be hormonal, stress, or insulin imbalance. A simple lifestyle change can make all the difference in preventing ovarian cysts. Imagine what it would be like without the pain and worry of those growths.
Removal of ovarian cysts does not have to mean going under the knife to remove the growths. The natural way is an alternative to surgery which can leave unsightly scars, possible infection, and other complications. So, now that you know that you have a choice, I am sure that you will give natural remedies a close hard look.
