When you are diagnosed with ovarian cysts, oftentimes, your doctor advises you to wait and perform several ultrasounds over a few months to monitor and examine the cysts. During these periods of observation, you can turn to some home remedies to ease your cyst’s pain and manage its symptoms.
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop on your ovaries and are mostly harmless. Even if the pain of these cysts is mild and subtle it still can cause a great deal of unnecessary grief and discomfort in your daily lives.
So how can we alleviate the pain and manage the symptoms of our cysts?
Some holistic home remedies can help ease your cyst’s pain and alleviate its symptoms. However, it is important to remember that while these home remedies can alleviate and ease any unnecessary pain and discomfort, they will not completely heal the cysts.
The muscles surrounding your ovarian cyst can tense up due to the pain caused by the cyst. This sensation can be uncomfortable, especially during periods. Massaging the lower back, thighs, buttocks, and stomach can help loosen these tense muscles, reducing the pain and uneasiness.
Heat therapy can help relieve cyst pain as well as menstrual cramping. When you apply a heating pad or a hot water bag, the heat penetrates the muscle group you’re targeting, increasing blood flow to areas such as your upper and lower back and abdomen relieving the pain.
Epsom Salt Bath
While a hot bath can ease cysts’ pain, just adding a little Epsom salt or magnesium sulfate to your bath can take this relief to the next level. Epsom salts have been used since generations to relieve various physical strains.
It has been found that supplementing your diet with magnesium has been beneficial to help relieve chronic pains. Raw almonds are known to have high levels of magnesium with 270 milligrams of magnesium per 100 grams of serving. However, if you are allergic to nuts, you’ll want to skip this suggestion.
Ginger has both antioxidant and anticarcinogenic properties and has been found to stop the growth of ovarian cancer cells. Some researchers have also concluded that the dietary intake of ginger may even treat and prevent ovarian cancer. So, sipping some ginger tea now and then may help relieve the pain of your cyst.
In recent years, chamomile supplements and chamomile tea have grown significantly popular as complementary treatments for symptoms of ovarian cysts. It is also found that drinking chamomile tea helps minimize menstrual cramps while reducing inflammation at the same time. Chamomile tea is also known to help people relax.

Today, I wanted to share these home remedies to ease your cyst’s pain because when I was going through my fertility journey and was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst, the conventional western medications and treatments didn’t do much for me.
But the moment I started healing my cyst was when I decided to go back to what I learned with all my healing techniques and started applying them.
I dived deep into my womb space and discovered that I was harboring so much negative energy. Then, I worked on myself and released all those emotional baggage and blockages that I had been carrying around.
