Cysts, fibroids are all Kapha or Kapha+pitta growths and growths can be tackled by using natural "no medicine" approach. Using aloe vera pulp or castor oil pack is considered "natural" or "herbal" here. Many of the home remedies nicely merge with diet; e.g. early morning fenugreek water or cinnamon+honey at beginning of meal for "PCOS"
Castor oil pack and fomentations has dissolved even malignant tumors in abdominal or pelvic region in some cases, if other herbal remedies were also being tried. The castor oil technique boosts the immune system to an extent where it destroyes "non-self" living matter in the same manner it kills bacteria, fungi and virus. It takes care of warts in foot, where warts are belived to be caused by same virus which causes ovarian, cervical cancer! (HPV) Castor oil home remedy for warts is known globally!
The use of Aloe Vera for fibroid like uterine growths has been mentioned in ancient text "Bhavprakash" which is about 700 years old. Acharya Bhavaprakash was the author, quite progresive for that time. He is credited with pulse diagnosis of ayurveda, as this book mentions it first time, no other ancient texts having the mention of pulse diagnosis. But several vaidyas follow it most successfully, as seen by the cure rate of the patients. This brings us to the references, trials or literature. In alternative medicine no one bothers about giving publicity to his findings, unless he is from an academic school/college and has interest in getting M.D./Ph.D
If any of the group members have fibroids, please try castor oil fomentation program for 3 months. Castor oil has so wide an application are in alternative medicine, it can ease constipation to cancer pain. Westerner naturopaths have also taken so much interest in it, and have given equal contribution as eastern ayurvedists.
