Ovarian Cysts due to Narcissistic Abuse? How to Get Rid of Them Naturally

By Kim Saeed | Contemplating No Contact

Did you know that Narcissistic abuse is directly linked to the formation of ovarian cysts in some women?  This happens when chronic, long-term stress causes the hormonal system to become imbalanced.

According to Sherrill Sellman, ND:

The adrenals are the core of the endocrine system. Two of their most important hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, are responsible for the fight-or-flight response. Adrenaline deals primarily with short-term stress while cortisol is produced as a result of both acute and long-term stress.

Prolonged emotional stress is disastrous for the adrenals. Initially, it results in chronically elevated cortisol levels and weight gain (especially around the midsection).  Overworked adrenals eventually crash, leading to adrenal exhaustion, where the body is unable to maintain adequate adrenal hormone production. Symptoms of overtaxed adrenals include extreme fatigue (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), irritability, inability to concentrate, frustration, insomnia, addictions to either sweet or salty foods, allergies, nervousness, depression, anxiety, PMS, sensitivity to cold, diabetes and headaches. Chronic low blood pressure can be a key symptom of adrenal exhaustion.

Progesterone is the primary raw material for producing cortisol. When the glands are in overdrive, the body will divert progesterone to the adrenals to support cortisol production. With reduced progesterone, the body may experience estrogen dominance, i.e. PMS, hot flashes, night sweats, migraines, fibroids, heavy bleeding, breast tenderness, weight gain, etc. Excessive cortisol also blocks progesterone receptors, further contributing to low progesterone.   These two imbalances are the primary reasons why adrenal exhaustion leads to estrogen dominance, which is the primary cause of ovarian cysts. 

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with ovarian cysts or have experienced bloating, a swollen feeling in your lower abdomen, and tenderness, you can reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts (and their symptoms) through the use of essential oils.

Essential Oils for Ovarian Cysts – Topical Application

Oregano, Basil, Frankincense, Tee Tree Oil

Apply a few drops to a carrier oil (Coconut, olive) and rub over lower abdomen or swollen area.

Essential Oils for Ovarian Cysts – Internal Method

Week 1

8 drops Clary Sage

8 drops Frankincense

8 drops Lavender

8 drops Cypress

2 Tbsp. coconut oil

Soak the mixture into a tampon. Insert overnight. Do this nightly for one week and then switch to this recipe for the following week:

Week 2

8 drops Frankincense

8 drops Geranium

5 drops Myrrh

2 Tbsp. grape seed oil

Any and all of these essential oils can also be diluted with 1 tsp. coconut oil and applied to the abdomen.  Using both the topical and internal methods simultaneously will result in faster relief.

In addition to the use of essential oils, you can further eliminate ovarian cysts by avoiding exposure to estrogens and xenoestrogens (estrogen mimickers):

  • Stop eating soy foods – soy contains plant compounds that mimic estrogen, leading to estrogen dominance
  • Eat only organic meats and dairy; in fact avoiding meats and dairy altogether will greatly reduce internal inflammation
  • Do not microwave foods in plastic
  • Stop drinking water from plastic bottles
  • Avoid mineral oil and parabens in skin care products

I hope you’ll consider these natural remedies before scheduling surgery to have your cysts removed.  There are hundreds of testimonials on the internet that vouch for the effectiveness of essential oils to reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts, and I’ve also used them to treat my own.

Thank you for this post
I left a comment above not sure if I did it right –
These are my questions:
Hello just read your Article- I’m wondering how the topical oils help rid the cyst? How do the oils work and what do each do? I only have frankensince, oregano and tea tree at this time – will that work? I also have clary sage now and zendocrine – wondering how these can help if any. I have been under a lot of stress so your article makes since. Recently found cyst on ovarie thru pelvis us.

Thank you again fir this very explanatory blog

    Hi Xoxom,

    I’m glad my article resonated with you. To answer your question, there are instructions within the article for both external and internal application. You’ll definitely want to start out with small doses of each oil if you’ve not tried essential oils before. I’d say cut the amount of each oil by half. You could apply the clary sage topically (diluting with a carrier oil) and use your zendocrine internally using the instructions in the article, only I would again recommend starting out with a few drops with a carrier oil to start.

    Best,

    Kim

Kim, how long do you do this treatment; do you keep alternating between weeks 1 & 2 or just do this 2 weeks. Just talked to someone that’s in a lot of pain, but they say she may not live through a surgery to remove the cysts. I hope you can answer me; I use essential oils, but I don’t know anything about using them to treat ovarian cysts. Thank you.

    Hi Anon. I am very sorry for not responding sooner as I’m just seeing your comment and question.

    From my research, it seems that the length of time would depend on the individual. I’d recommend doing it for a month or two and then making an appointment with a doctor to check on the cysts. However, if your friend is taking any prescription medications, she’d want to make sure that the essential oils won’t cause any ill effects in combination with the oils.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!! Makes SO much sense. When the N abuse really stepped up, I gained weight and developed a huge cyst. This is happened throughout the course of the relationship. Just one more affirmation that the abuse was real and toxic and has been making me sick in various ways.

    Freedom 16, I also developed a huge cyst. The doctor thought it was cancerous and removed it. I also developed IBS and my adrenal glands are fried. This kind of abuse does result in many kinds of physical symptoms and diseases. Thank you for sharing…wishing you all the best in your recovery.

Oh my holy Lord! Thank you so much for sharing this, Kim! I never would have guessed! I have been having problems with ovarian cysts since 1997 (I was living with my N mother). I have also had 2 laparoscopy procedures done in the past year alone (one in October last year and another one in May this year) to have ovarian cysts drained, due to the excruciating pain that I’ve been in. I still have issues with ovarian cysts and pain but I have given up hope on the medical system here in Adelaide, Australia. Will endeavour to try what you have suggested. Thank you so much!

I have to chuckle because while it’s not funny AT ALL, while I was with him, I have horrific symptoms of PMS and Perimenopause. The man would beg me to get my hormones tested and get on hormone therapy. Because, of course, in no way could ANY of it have been attributed to stress or PTSD. (Which I still struggle with). (And, yes, that was a bit of sarcasm there.) I am STILL learning and reading because I want to understand what is in me that attracts these kinds of people because I NEVER want to go through that again. Blessings for your work. It’s awesome.

Thanks Kim, great post. I am booked for an operation in 3 months. Put it off as I’m not emotionally strong enough to deal with it yet. I am changing my diet and concentrating on getting physically healthy in the next few months. I was diagnosed with pre-cancerous cells, so have to go for a day operation to remove potentially cancerous cervical tissue. I have been healthy all of my life. I believe that the stress of what I went through over the three year period with my x pushed my body so much that I am paying as a result of it. It was picked up in a pap smear. I think it’s important for women following abuse to have all the tests they can to make sure they are physically well. Sexual health is important too as often these people cheat and don’t protect themselves. I wasn’t taking care of my diet, physical health or anything else when I was with him. Another important reason why men and women in these relationships need to look very seriously at the impact it is having on them. After you leave there is also potential to self abuse due to lack of self esteem, feeling broken and not treating yourself with the care and respect you deserve. Fortunately I have moved past this now. For me, I think it’s too late for natural remedies, even though I have a strong belief in them. Prevention is better than cure, the only prevention is to remove yourself from harm before you become physically sick.

    Ness, thank you for reading my blog and for commenting. Your insight is spot on. Long-term emotional abuse does indeed wreak havoc on our bodies as well as our minds. It’s an overall assault on our whole being…

    If you have an operation scheduled in 3 months, why don’t you try the remedies in my post? You never know…you might go back in 3 months to find that your cysts have shrunk or even disappeared. It happens all the time 🙂 Worth a try, anyway.
