Effective Herbal Cure For Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are a common finding in gynecology. Most women with ovarian cysts are asymptomatic. An ovarian cyst is a sac filled with liquid or semi-liquid material arising in ovary. An ovarian follicle that is larger than about two centimeters is termed as an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts are closed, sac like structures within the ovary that are often filled with liquid or semi-solid substance. It affects women of all ages but most often it occurs during child bearing ages. Most ovarian cysts are harmless (benign).

Ovarian cysts are non-cancerous and have a sac like structure that can be filled with fluid, pus or other gaseous material, they are common and can occur anywhere on the body.  The diagnosis of ovarian cysts has increased with the extensive use of ultrasound technology, MRI and CT scan. The treatment of an ovarian cysts is mainly done by hormonal treatment (combined oral contraceptive pills) and by surgical treatment such as pelvic laparoscopy and laparotomy which are having their side effects but in Ayurveda, ovarian cysts can be co-related with Kaphajagranthi.  Some ovarian cysts cause problems such as per-vaginal bleeding and pain in pelvis. Ovarian cysts frequently require surgical treatment but immense challenge persists to manage with medicines.

Ovarian cysts according to Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system which involves natural and holistic treatment. Ayurveda means “the science of life”. In Ayurveda, cysts are co-related with “Granthi”.According to Ayurveda, menstrual cycle in females is regulated by Apana vayu or Prana-vyana-apana axis (endocrine imbalances in relation to ovarian cysts) and the fertility depends on the balance of Vayu in the lower abdomen which is known as “Apana Vayu”. Ovarian cysts according to Ayurveda may be though in the lines of Kapha blocking the functions of Apana Vata.

This mostly happens in 2 cases

  1. The normal Kapha being pulled by Apana Vata into its place due to the suction of Vata.
  2. Kapha dripping into the Vata places especially into the lower areas of the body and blocking the smooth functioning of Vata.

In these conditions Kapha which is usually present in the upper part of the body drips down through the middle part of the body, which is Pitta place (Agni sthana), while doing so Kapha drags Pitta too as it moves into Vata sthana. Due to this, there is an accumulation of fluids in the lower portion of the body which causes cysts. When this happens, the Prana-Vyana-Apana axis is disturbed because they are also subjected to unnecessary and undesired displacements. In this condition, Ayurvedic treatment is concentrated on correcting Prana-Vyana-Apana axis.

  • Pelvic Pain- a dull ache that may radiate to lower back and thighs.
