Ovarian Cysts - Ways Ayurveda Can Help You Treat It!

What is an ovarian cyst?
If a follicle present in the ovaries grows beyond 2cm in size, it is called an ovarian cyst. In an ovarian cyst, fluid accumulates inside a thin wall in the ovaries. The size of the ovarian cyst varies in size from person to person. It is most common in women during their fertile period, but it can happen anytime.

What is the cause of an ovarian cyst?
Follicles are produced in the ovaries under normal conditions. One of these follicles matures into an egg every month. It is a very normal process and happens spontaneously in most cases. However, under certain circumstances and conditions, these follicles fail to rupture and turn into a fluid filled cyst. In rare cases, dermoid reactions caused by entrapment of sebum follicle or hair follicle can cause ovarian cysts as well. It is common for most women to have at least one cyst in their lifetime.

What are the symptoms of an ovarian cyst?
Sometimes, an ovarian cyst does not present many symptoms. The most common symptoms include:

  1. Increase in weight
  2. Painful intercourse
  3. Headache and fatigue
  4. Pain in the abdomen
  5. Heaviness and fullness in the stomach
  6. An increase in the frequency of urination
  7. Increase in bowel movements as a result of pressure
  8. Back pain

Ayurvedic treatment for ovarian cyst

  1. Shilajit: It is the most common herb for enhancing male libido and induces strength and vigour. Hence, this herb is indicated in women to increase agility so that they are able to get on with their daily schedule without much interference due to the fatigue.
  2. Commiphora mukul: It is a very potent drug and has immense rejuvenating properties. The cells of the body are revitalised and rejuvenated by these. It is also effective in people who are anaemic or have low haemoglobin levels in the blood.
  3. Emblica Officalis (Amlaki): ‘Amlaki’ is known for its rejuvenating properties as well. It has great anti oxidant properties and helps to neutralise the free radicals in the body. It is also effective in increasing immunity in the body and enhancing metabolism.
