Cease and De-cyst
Q: I read with great interest your tip about using SSKI for fibroids. Does this therapy work for ovarian cysts, too? And if so, where can I get it? A: Yes, it does, and for the same reason. SSKI helps the body metabolize estrogen, which is also the culprit in ovarian cysts. In minor to moderate cases I generally recommend six to eight drops taken daily in a few ounces of water. It takes about two to three months of this to see results. But many people who have used this therapy have had a great deal of success. For the record, the same dose will also work for fibrocystic breast disease, and should work in about three to six months. Just don't forget to contact a nutritionally knowledgeable physician who can monitor your thyroid function during treatment. You shouldn't need a prescription to obtain SSKI -- although if you are working with a physician you can get it that way. You can also obtain it from a compounding pharmacist and some natural food stores. Please contact the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (www.iacprx.org) to locate a compounding pharmacist in your area if you don't know one already.
What is...an ovarian cyst? Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form on the ovaries. With cancer rates climbing, and cancer deaths the second leading cause of death in this country, the word "cyst" can be scary. However, most ovarian cysts are benign in women who are past puberty and pre-menopausal. (Ovarian cysts in pre-pubescent and post-menopausal women have a greater risk of being cancerous, however.) Usually they are not painful and they resolve without treatment, although sometimes they can cause infertility, menstrual problems, and pelvic pain. The best way to guard against ovarian cysts is to keep your estrogen and progesterone levels balanced. The best way to get rid of them naturally when they become a problem is with Dr. Wright's suggested SSKI therapy (above)..
