Cause and effect are the basis of everything in life. Therefore before any cyst treatment is considered (or any treatment for any condition), the cause should first be examined.
Doctors don’t do this. Medical school doesn’t equip them with the ability to find causes or with any treatment based on the cause. They are only taught to connect particular drugs, or a selection of drugs, with a medical diagnosis. This is why diagnosis is so important to doctors.
However, it isn’t that important to holistic practitioners, who consider the whole of you, the causes of problems and your coping mechanisms. All this will differ from person to person, so their treatment should also differ. One size most definitely does not fit all.
So in any successful cyst treatment, regardless of the type of cyst, it is important to establish what the cause is. The cause of any ailment can be difficult to pinpoint unless you are aware of them. Effects don’t always show up immediately. For example, a dietary insufficiency can take years to show up. As can cancer. Causes of cancer are usually 5 – 10 years prior to the appearance of a tumour.
This means there is no urgency in treatment. You have plenty of time to consider what your best course of action is.
Cysts, polyps, tumours, nodules and cancers can all show up in similar ways; as an enlarged, contained area or mass. It really makes little difference to the location, although this can create different symptoms. Common growths are thyroid cysts, breast cysts, ovarian cysts, prostate cysts as well as many other others. The type can also vary, such as fibroid cysts or polycysts.
These four common areas are also the common areas for cancer. Cysts can be a precursor to cancer.
So what triggers the formation of cysts?
One big cause is the lack of iodine in your diet. The vast majority of people have an iodine deficiency. This wasn’t always so, when people consumed more salt than they do today, and the common salts contained iodine.
Iodine is found in seaweed. Any seaweed or any sea vegetable. Which means that most Japanese people are not deficient in iodine. Iodine is also found in most sea fish, along with all the toxins humans are trashing into the oceans.
The plants that are naturally rich in iodine are cranberries, beans (especially navy beans) and strawberries, but this will vary depending on whether they are organically grown as well as the natural balance of the soil they are grown in.
Iodine supplements may have their place if you are chronically low in iodine, but they are synthetic so are not easily assimilated by your body. You can overdose on synthetic supplements which causes problems. This is impossible with natural supplementation, as any excess is naturally excreted. So regular use of them is not recommended.
When you remain chronically deficient in iodine, a cyst can develop into a tumour. The doctors will then try to coerce you into chemo, radiation and surgery, when all you really need is iodine.
A lack of iodine is not the only cause of cysts, but is a large one. This should always be addressed before considering other options, because it is so common.
Other cysts can simply mean a personal disposition towards them. For example, some woman have what is termed ‘lumpy breasts’ which simply means they have a lot of little cysts. These usually only become troublesome around the time of the period. They aren’t there or troublesome all the time. They tend not to be a precursor to cancer.
These cysts can be effectively treated with homeopathy. Homeopathy is a natural and complete form of medicine which works by supporting what your body is already trying to do. It supports and enhances your body’s best attempts to restore order and balance. Once this is restored, physical, emotional and mental problems dissipate and eventually vanish.
Homeopathy offers you a great natural cyst treatment, just as it is for all health problems.
