Cysts are common and occur anywhere in the body in people of all ages. These sac like structures are normally filled with gas, fluid or semi solid material and are generally benign. Superficial cysts can be felt as a lump or a knob underneath the skin. Internal cysts form in the organs like kidneys, liver, pancreas and ovaries and often do not produce any symptoms unless they become quite large so as to displace and compress normal organs and tissue.
They are mainly caused by obstructions to the flow of fluid, infection, tumors, chronic inflammatory conditions, genetic factors and defects in the developing organs of the embryo. Epidermal cysts are frequently found on the face, scalp, neck and trunk. Ganglion cysts form on the joints and tendons. Cysts within the kidneys cause polycystic kidney disease and pilonidal cysts occur at the base of the tailbone of the lower back. Infections and inflammations such as boils on the skin can also lead to cysts which are very painful and unsightly.
Best Ways To Get Rid Of A Cyst
You should never try to pop a cyst. The cyst which is made up of skin tissue has to be disintegrated and reabsorbed into the system for it go away so the main goal of treatment is to shrink the cyst. Soak a black tea bag in some milk and place it over the cyst.
Bandage the bag in place and keep it overnight. Milk has the ability to draw out infection and tea has the ability to destroy the infection and shrink the cyst rapidly. Do this, until you get rid of the cyst.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has many therapeutic uses in traditional medicine. It has the ability to do away with infection and inflammation and helps to stabilize the pH levels on the skin thus helping the cyst to be reabsorbed by the system.
Apply apple cider vinegar on the cyst three or four times daily not only to get rid of it but also to prevent it from coming back.
Sometimes cysts are caused by a deficiency of omega 3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are powerful antioxidants which remove all the harmful free radicals from the body and detoxify it thoroughly.
Omega 3 fatty acids are also anti-inflammatory agents which cure the existing cysts and prevent the formation of new ones. Take one capsule of fish oil, twice daily to remove the deficiency of omega 3 fatty acids.
Aloe vera not only helps to get rid of the cyst but it also alleviates the pain and irritation. Take a fresh aloe vera leaf and slice away its thorny edges.
Slit the leaf in the middle and rub the gel side on the cyst four or five times regularly. Gradually the cyst will begin to shrink and go away completely.
Cut a potato into slices. Place two or three potato slices over the cyst and tie them in place with a bandage. Leave it overnight. Very soon the cyst will come to a head or it will shrink over a period of time.
