5 home remedies for ganglion cysts!

samedi 17 juin 2017

Ganglion cysts are formations that often attack our tendons and joints. They are usually small, rounded bags filled with viscous and dense liquid. Their size can be different, from pea-size to one inch. They usually appear on the tendon or joint in the wrists, ankles, soles of the feet or fingers. The symptoms that usually appear include: muscle weakness, numbness and discomfort and pain followed with tingling sensations. They can appear solid or spongy, depending on their size. Doctors don’t know the real cause for their appearance, but they can appear because of joint or tendon irritation.

These cysts are very common in people between 15 and 40, especially in women and gymnasts whose wrists are under stress constantly. They can also appear in people who are affected by joint or tendon injury or osteoarthritis. People usually remove them with surgical procedures, but they can be also healed with the help of some natural remedies!

Here are the top 5 natural remedies for treating ganglion cysts:
Black Tea Bags

Black tea possesses an acidic characteristic which usually accelerates the healing of a ganglion cyst and doesn’t allow it to become worse. This tea possesses very strong anti-inflammatory properties and eases the pain and swelling. Here’s the procedure you should follow: first, soak a black tea bag in some warm water for 5 minutes. Draw it out and squeeze all the liquid from the bag. Then, apply the bag over the place with the ganglion cyst and leave it to work for 10 minutes. Repeat this treatment several times every day for few days.

Frankincense Oil

This oil is considered to be a strong astringent that can diminish the size of a ganglion cyst and change its appearance. It also relieves the pain. Here’s the procedure: apply 2 drops of frankincense oil on the ganglion cyst. Put some soft and clean bandage over the area.

Note: Do this treatment every day. Always use a clean bandage until you notice the size of the cyst is diminished. Continue with this treatment for 2-3 weeks.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera possesses some very strong anti-inflammatory characteristics which can speed up the healing of a ganglion cyst. This plant will also relieve the pain and swelling. Here’s the procedure: use a fresh Aloe Vera leaf. Put the gel from the leaf on the affected place. Leave it to act for 20 minutes. Wash it off using some lukewarm water.

Note: Repeat the procedure several times a day for 4-5 days.
Arnica Oil

This oil is also a powerful anti-inflammatory agent which relieves your pain, swelling and inflammation. It improves the blood circulation, too and that speeds up the complete healing process. This is the procedure: dilute arnica essential oil in even amounts with olive or coconut oil. Put this natural remedy on the affected area and massage gently. Fix it using a bandage. Repeat this procedure 2-3 times for 4-5 days. Be very careful with arnica because there are people who are sensitive to it!

Epsom Salt

Epsom salt will help you decrease and heal a ganglion cyst in only several days. It eases the inflammation and the pain. Do this: combine 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt with 1-2 cups of warm water. Put this mixture on the affected area for 20-30 minutes. Repeat this process for 4-5 days.
Make sure you also consume foods that contain very strong anti-inflammatory characteristics like: salmon, turmeric, ginger, etc. Visit a doctor if your cyst increases too much or causes a lot of pain.
