Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment of Ovarian Cysts
The first step of correctly diagnosing and treating ovarian cysts is to locate the cause of ovarian cysts, it is essential to understand the possible causes of ovarian cysts. However,there is no single cause of ovarian cysts. Ovarian cyst can be triggered by a variety of factors. It’s important to understand these different factors in order to seek appropriatetreatment.
Primary factors that cause ovarian cysts:
There are many primary factors, which lead to ovarian cysts. These factors should not beisolated however, as sometimes the combination of these factors can together lead to thecauses of ovarian cysts.-
Genetic predisposition:
Genetic predisposition is often considered the leading cause of ovarian cysts. Research has shown that the genetic pattern of women who suffer from thischronic condition is different as compared to women who never get ovarian cysts or PCOS. However, this should not be a death warrant as many times the geneticcharacteristics can be modified with the help of environmental factors and proper lifestylerelated changes.-
Poor dietary choices:
Eating poorly can cause hormonal imbalance that can weakenyour immune system making you more vulnerable to ovarian cysts. Avoiding foods thatare rich in carbohydrates and sugar are important and making sure you are getting enoughfresh vegetables, fruits, and all essential nutrients each and everyday are important tohelp your body flush out toxins that can aggravate ovarian cysts problem.
- Weak immune system:
Like I just mentioned a weak immune system can be trouble, asit is not able to put up a natural fight against ovarian cyst triggers. Many factors includingdietary factors and sleep deprivation can lead to weakened immune system.-
Insulin resistance:
High level of insulin can stimulate ovarian androgen production,which leads to the production of male hormones. This reduces the serum sex-hormone binding globulin or SHGB. The SHBG can in turn aggravate the ovarian cyst condition toquite an extent.-
Failed ovulation process
: Sometimes, the ovaries fail to release egg on a monthly basis. This fails to produce progesterone and brings about hormonal imbalance. This canthen lead to the formation of ovarian cysts.Besides the above primary factors, toxins in liver and even environmental toxins canaggravate and cause ovarian cysts. Hence, ovarian cyst condition is not a simple one tounderstand or treat.
Diagnosis of Ovarian Cysts
 
Once you recognize thesymptomsand causes of ovarian cysts it’s important to get a professional medical diagnosis to determine the seriousness of your ovarian cysts.
Diagnosis Tests
A healthcare provider may perform the following tests to determine if a woman has anovarian cyst or to help characterize the type of cyst that is present:
- Endovaginal ultrasound:
This is a special imaging test developed to examine the pelvic organs and is the best test for diagnosing an ovarian cyst. An endovaginalultrasound is a painless procedure that resembles a pelvic exam. This type of ultrasound produces the best image because rather than a scan through the abdominalwall can a small probe is inserted in the virginal and can be positioned closer to theovaries.
-
Other imaging:
CT scanning aids in assessing the extent of the condition. MRIscanning may also be used to clarify results of an ultrasound.
A procedure when a surgeon fills a woman's abdomen witha gas and makes small incisions through which a thin scope (laparoscope) can passinto the abdomen. The surgeon identifies the cyst through the scope and may removethe cyst.
- Serum CA-125 assay:
This is a blood test that checks for a substance called CA-125, which is associated with ovarian cancer (the CA stands for cancer antigen). Thistest is used in the assessment of epithelial ovarian cancer and may help determine if an ovarian mass is harmless or cancerous. However, sometimes non-harmfulconditions may result in the elevated levels of CA-125 in the blood, so the test doesnot positively establish the diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
- Hormone levels:
A blood test to check LH, FSH, estradiol, and testosterone levels.Checking these levels are used to indicate potential problems concerning thosehormone levels.
- Pregnancy testing:
The treatment of ovarian cysts is different for a pregnantwoman than it is for a non-pregnant woman. An ectopic pregnancy (pregnancyoutside the uterus) must be ruled out because some of the symptoms of ectopic pregnancy may be similar to those of ovarian cysts.
- Culdocentesis
: This test involves taking a fluid sample from the pelvis with aneedle inserted through the vaginal wall behind the uterine cervix.Once you received a medical diagnosis you can properly treat your ovarian cysts.Conventional ovarian cysts treatments are the most commonly used but this strategytreatment is starting to be looked upon as useless and in some cases dangerous.
 
Conventional wisdom blinded by out-of-date forms of treatment cannot treat and cureovarian cysts. To treat ovarian cysts, a multidimensional holistic approach is needed.
Natural Holistic Treatment Vs Conventional Treatment
Ovarian cyst disease is a chronic condition that can really take a toll on the physical,mental and emotional well being of a woman.
Conventional
ovarian cysts methods don’t prevent this emotional stress and in some cases make it worse.There are only two forms of treatment that
conventional
methods use to treat ovariancysts. These two methods use birth control pills or surgery to treat the actual cysts anduse pain meds to dull pain. These two methods have proven to be ineffective and onlymask the symptoms for a short period of time.
Holistic approach
is a multidimensional approach to treatment. When using
holistic
as atreatment you’re trying to find the root cause of the ovarian cysts. You’re not justfocusing on a stereotypical symptom when treating the cysts. The
holistic
approach isused to investigate the proper method to treat this condition but also recognizes the bodyas a unified whole.The holistic approach adjusts to the individual differences in people and never setstandard rules for treatment. Therefore, a woman can get the best form of treatment for her individual self that can promote healing at physical, mental and emotional levels.
Why Holistic Is Better Than Conventional Treatment
Side effects of conventional medication:-
Conventional medical treatment 
can cause many side effects. Women who haveto have surgery and lose their ovaries often experience change in their personalitydue to hormonal imbalance. Also, oral contraceptives, which are used prominentlyto treat ovarian cysts, can affect fertility of a woman. Pregnant women cannot useconventional medication, without having to endure significant risks of miscarriageand premature delivery.
-
 Natural remedies
have no side effects. Some forms of natural treatment also putemphasis on strengthening the mental and emotional state.
Inefficiency of conventional medication:-
Conventional medicine
only provides temporary relief from symptoms of ovarian cysts. The ovarian cysts reoccur after the treatment is discarded. Evenafter surgery, the patient is not immune to ovarian cysts. In fact research hasshown that the growth of ovarian cysts after surgery is a side effect of this harshtreatment option.
