Ovarian Cysts Miracle™ is not a temporary quick fix. It offers a permanent solution and one that you can maintain as a lifestyle. The whole concept of curing ovarian cysts by masking the ovarian cysts symptoms is flawed.

19 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 19 Page Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts Sect i on O ne – T he T rut h About PCO S O vari an Cyst s What Is PCOS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOS is a metabolic hormonal ovulation and insulin disorder related condition that affects one in 10 women. In a normal menstrual cycle follicles grow on the ovaries and eggs develop within those follicles. After a certain period of time only one of those eggs reaches maturity sooner than the other eggs. When this egg reaches maturity it is released into the fallopian tubes. The other follicles that have not matured then dissolve back into the ovary. However under certain conditions genetic hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance being some but not all of these conditions the ovaries are larger than normal and there are several follicles that do not reach maturity but appear in clumps. These are polycystic ovaries. Women who have PCOS also experience in addition to the formation of polycystic ovaries an array of symptoms also referred to as a syndrome. While a woman can have polycystic ovaries without suffering from PCOS all women with PCOS will have polycystic ovaries. PCOS is a complex condition in which numerous underlying factors in basic body processes have been disrupted. Since the human body is a unified whole a disorder in one area will ultimately lead to problems in other areas. This is why it is important to treat PCOS and ovarian cysts as a systemic disorder in other words treat the disorder holistically rather than treat it as a problem concerned solely with your ovaries.

20 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 20 Page What Are Ovarian Cysts Follicles are small fluid-filled sacs in the ovaries that normally develop into eggs as a natural part of the ovulation process. However as already mentioned under certain conditions some follicles migrate to the surface of the ovaries but fail to release an egg. The follicles then become cysts a follicle larger than 2 cm and grow larger with each menstrual cycle. While most cysts are harmless only 15 cases per 100000 are cancerous some cysts can cause pain and bleeding. Ovarian cysts most commonly develop among women in their childbearing years but can affect women of all ages.

21 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 21 Page The Real Cause Of PCOS And Ovarian Cysts The most fundamental truth regarding the vast majority of chronic health conditions including PCOS and ovarian cysts is that there is no such thing as a single cause. As with other health conditions PCOS is a condition that is triggered by several primary and secondary factors and the relationship between them. There are factors and co-factors that contribute to PCOS and to the development of ovarian cysts and there are causative agents that aggravate an already compromised PCOS condition. There are also life situations external factors and mental factors that directly or indirectly form the environment in which the internal balance is disrupted. These then manifest themselves as common PCOS symptoms and ovarian cysts. Because every health problem is multidimensional the solution must be multidimensional in order to eradicate the problem from the root. This is one of the reasons why science and conventional medicine fail in treating most western afflictions. Instead of treating the body as a unified whole they tackle the manifestation of the condition or the infected parts. Some of us are more genetically prone to disease than others but that is not to say that if we have some tendency to develop a condition or a weakness of some sort there is nothing we can do. As I will later illustrate we can partly change our genetic structure and we can also solve other parts of the health condition puzzle. We can make a difference reverse our diseases and regain our health and energy by making affirmative decisions to change our lifestyles dietary choices and thoughts that lead to poor health toxic buildup and weak immune systems along with several other factors which promote Edited with the trial version of Foxit Advanced PDF Editor To remove this notice visit: www.foxitsoftware.com/shopping

slide 22:

22 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 22 Page the majority of all common illnesses. Then we can gain control over our health and inner terrain. The primary factors that lead to PCOS and ovarian cysts are: · Genetic predisposition · Poor dietary choices · Weakened immune system · Accumulation of toxins in the digestive tract including environmental toxins · Insulin resistance and obesity These five factors create the prefect internal environment for PCOS that manifests as ovarian cysts among various other symptoms. Having hormonal imbalance such as during menstruation taking antibiotics prescription medications and steroids stress and lack of sleep can also contribute to PCOS and to the formation of ovarian cysts. Now let’s go into more detail about each of the primary and secondary factors that contribute to PCOS. Genetic Predisposition Most research has shown that the genetic pattern of women with PCOS is somewhat different compared to women who dont have PCOS. It seems that the genes of women who have PCOS make them predisposed to abnormal metabolism and the dysfunctions of cell activity. However the claim that women with PCOS have a genetic tendency that cannot be altered is nothing but a myth. While genes are a set of rules or principles that determine your physical characteristics along with the tendency to develop or prevent diseases your genes similar to a blueprint can be altered.

23 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 23 Page Genetic research has shown that your genetic characteristics can be modified and influenced by numerous choices and factors. From the moment of birth until you die your environment inside and outside your body can greatly impact your genetic disposition. By choosing to take control over your inner and outer environment by changing your diet for example you can strongly influence your genetic tendencies and therefore help your body overcome disease. Poor Dietary Choices A diet high in refined carbohydrates processed and toxic foods and low in fresh fruit and vegetables affects biochemical processes within the cells contributes to hormonal imbalance worsens digestion and interferes with the natural toxic elimination process. Lack of good nutrition is another factor. Our bodies need to obtain about 40 essential vitamins minerals and nutrients to enable the cells in our bodies to fully function and remain healthy. These nutrients mostly come from our diet since the body cannot produce them by itself. When we eat more processed foods and fewer foods with high nutritional value the immune system declines and becomes less effective since nutrition is highly essential for healthy immune functioning. With a weakened defense system we make it easier for PCOS and ovarian cysts to develop. Over-acidity in the digestive system usually due to a diet high in acidic foods is another major factor. A state of over-acidity causes the blood to become sludgy and thick creating the ideal environment for candida growth more on the acid-alkaline balance later. The consumption of refined or processed foods spikes your blood sugar to high levels. Insulin levels increase in order to control the sudden increase in blood sugar. Too much insulin eventually makes the cells "insulin resistant.” more on the insulin-PCOS connection later Edited with the trial version of Foxit Advanced PDF Editor To remove this notice visit: www.foxitsoftware.com/shopping

24 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 24 Page A healthy diet that consists of certain micronutrients biotin calcium chromium magnesium selenium can help reduce insulin resistance. The typical western diet is deficient in many of these micronutrients. A family of substances called excitotoxins MSG being one of them along with numerous other chemicals added to your food to "improve" the taste texture or appearance can hinder and damage cell function and nerve cells. This in turn can hinder your body’s ability to keep your hormones balanced. Nerve cells in the hypothalamus are also responsible for the stimulation or suppression of hormone secretion. Low doses of MSG injected into mice caused abnormally high levels of LH luteinizing hormone. Elevated levels of LH is one of the primary reproductive problems that PCOS women have.

Weakened Immune System Or Autoimmune Disorders When the immune system is weakened due to several factors such as nutritional deficiency high toxic buildup heavy metals chemicals bacteria viruses and parasites stress lack of sleep or the use of pharmaceutical drugs such as antibiotics and steroids the body becomes vulnerable to virtually every type of sickness and disease. In this state the body cannot defend itself and cannot control the process of toxic elimination and hormonal balancing as it could if the immune system was at its peak performance. Autoimmune disease is another issue. This is an inflammatory condition where your immune system mistakenly considers organs or cells as "foreign" to your body and attacks them. Hormone disorders and substances and microorganisms in your food and physical environment can all influence your immune system.

Congested Toxins In The Bowels Liver Blood And Lymph And Exposure to Environmental Toxins Our constant exposure to thousands of toxins on a daily basis through the food that we eat the air that we breathe the drugs that we take and our poor quality of our water supply all lead to toxic buildup in the blood lymph kidneys and colon. This leads to short-term and long-term health conditions. Among them are PCOS and ovarian cysts. You can take thousands of herbs supplements and over-the-counter preparations to relieve your PCOS symptoms and eliminate ovarian cysts but without cleansing your internal system and your digestive tract in particular it will be like painting a rusty car and you will never get rid of it. The liver in particular is essential to maintaining blood sugar levels recovering your hormonal balance improving your fertility and performing other functions such as removing excess insulin from the blood stream. When excess insulin for example is not removed it remains high in the blood and may contribute to insulin resistance. These functions are all responsible for keeping your PCOS symptoms under control and for eradicating and preventing the formation of ovarian cysts. The optimal PCOS diet and the cleaning protocols outlined in this book were designed to ease the fat and toxic load on your liver to provide nutrients that the liver needs to do its work and to re-build liver and bile function. Once you have cleansed your internal system your detoxification process and your immune system will have vastly improved and your liver’s ability to release toxins balance hormones and remove excess insulin from the blood will be enhanced.

These can disrupt your hormonal activity by interfering with the production and metabolism of hormones and by mimicking hormones. Environmental toxins can also lower progesterone levels damage your fertility the ovulation process and the health of your unborn child. Chronic exposure to xenohormones petro-chemically derived pesticides emulsifiers found in soap and cosmetics plastics regular meat and man- made chemicals found in our food and environment can cause hormone dysfunction ovary damage damaged follicles which cause reduced production of progesterone and infertility problems. Exposure to solvents the most common type of xenohormones that are found in glue dry cleaning clothes nail polish and paint can lead to an array of health problems including: fatigue anxiety depression brain swelling fetus damage and oxygen deprivation in the brain. While there is no escape from chemical pollution including xenohormones the PCOS diet the solvents exposure guidelines and detoxification protocols outlined in the book will provide you with a diet that is as free as possible from environmental chemicals that will disrupt your hormones and damage your health. They will also remove chemical substances that are already in your body and strengthen your toxin elimination organs. Insulin Resistance Studies show that at least 30 of women with PCOS have insulin resistance Insulin resistance can manifest as acne difficulty losing weight high blood pressure elevated blood glucose and carbohydrate cravings.

27 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 27 Page dependent processes in your body such as regulating the livers production of blood sugar and fat. When you are insulin resistant your pancreas gland produces extra insulin to counter the impaired related functions which in turn causes "hyperinsulinemia" - an abnormally high level of insulin in the blood. This leads to a vicious cycle where the excess insulin causes the cells to become even more insulin resistant. As your pancreas becomes exhausted from producing large higher amounts of insulin it starts producing less and less insulin thus causing blood sugar levels to go out of control. With regard to PCOS ovarian cysts and hormonal imbalance chronically high levels of insulin stimulate ovarian androgen production causing excessive production of testosterone and other male hormones by reducing serum sex- hormone binding globulin SHBG that worsen PCOS symptoms. While there is a genetic predisposition to develop insulin resistance poor nutrition dietary habits and too much body fat can greatly contribute to insulin resistance and thus worsen PCOS symptoms and hinder the body’s ability to eliminate ovarian cysts. Failed Ovulation Process And Ovarian Cysts In the presence of certain metabolic/hormonal disorders the follicles migrate to the surface of the ovary but fail to mature release an egg. When this distorted ovulation process occurs ovarian cysts develop. This occurs mainly because progesterone isn’t made. In a normal ovulation process the egg is released and the remaining sac part of the follicle transforms into corpus luteum. The corpus luteum then produces progesterone that stops further ovulations by the rest of the follicles in both ovaries. The rest of the follicles then gradually dissolve.

28 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 28 Page When there is not enough progesterone the area in the brain hypothalamus that is responsible for sending signals to produce hormones estrogen and progesterone stimulates the immature follicles to continue growing by producing more estrogen. The immature follicles develop into cysts and grow larger with each succeeding menstrual cycle often causing pain and bleeding. Why Eggs Wont Pop And Progesterone Isnt Made There are several causes behind dysfunctional follicles that wont release eggs and behind the fact that progesterone isn’t made. Among several other factors is the exposure of female embryos to xenobiotics a large family of environmental pollutants that include xenohormones. As already mentioned these are environmental pollutants that mimic the chemical activity of estrogen on the developing babys tissues . Studies show that the creation of ovarian follicles is highly sensitive to the toxicity of xenobiotics. These chemicals can damage the female ovarian follicles and make them dysfunctional unable to complete ovulation or produce sufficient progesterone. Lifestyle Factors That Contribute To PCOS And Dysfunctional Follicles Stress invoked by either lack of sleep emotional issues anxiety or pressure in your daily routine has been scientifically proven to contribute to PCOS and ovarian cyst formation as stress depresses your immune system causes anovulatory cycles and elevates blood sugar levels. Taking birth control pills can shut down normal ovary function. A diet full of xenobiotics can hinder metabolism and prescription drugs can also negatively affect the menstrual cycle by impairing the functioning of the hypothalamus.

29 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 29 Page Types Of Ovarian Cysts While most ovarian cysts are non-cancerous some ovarian cysts can develop into cancerous growths. Let’s briefly describe the various types of non- cancerous ovarian cysts note that every woman can develop one or several of the following types of cysts: 1. Follicular Cysts Graafian Follicle: This is the most common type of functional ovarian cyst. It can grow to about 2 inches in diameter is filled with clear fluid and is the result of a failed ovulation process. The pain caused by ruptures in this type of cyst is a sharp pain on the side of the ovary where the cyst is located and usually occurs in the middle of the menstrual cycle. Often these cysts dissolve by themselves within a few weeks or months. 2. Corpus Luteum Cysts: This is another type of functional ovarian cyst that occurs in the corpus luteum stage. While usually the corpus luteum dissolves by itself if a pregnancy does not occur it may stay on the ovary and be filled with blood. Often this cyst produces no symptoms. 3. Hemorrhagic Cysts: This cyst usually affects younger women and occurs when blood enters the cyst through a tear in one of the cyst’s blood vessels. Hemorrhagic cysts may grow to 5-6 inches in diameter. While most hemorrhagic cysts dissolve by themselves they can produce painful symptoms usually on the right side of the abdomen. 4. Dermoid Cysts: A rare but usually benign cyst that normally affects women during their childbearing years. The size of a Dermoid cyst ranges from half an inch to 17 inches in diameter. When Dermoid cysts become inflamed they can cause severe abdominal pain and threaten blood supply. In this emergency state a surgery to remove the cyst is often necessary. 5. Endometriomas Cysts: This type of cyst affects women during the reproductive years and develops when the mucous membrane that makes up the inner layer of the uterine wall also referred to as the endometrial tissue Edited with the trial version of Foxit Advanced PDF Editor To remove this notice visit: www.foxitsoftware.com/shopping

When the cyst ruptures the content inside the cyst spills over into the pelvis and onto the surface of the uterus and the corresponding spaces between causing severe chronic pelvic pain. Endometriomas cysts are also called “chocolate cysts” because the blood is a reddish-brown color. 6. Cystadenomas: Cystadenomas are usually benign cysts that develop from cells located on the surface of the ovary. Cystadenomas can grow to large dimensions and thus cause pain and even interfere with abdominal organs. 7. Multiple Cysts – Polycystic Ovary: Multiple enlarged cysts can form among women who don’t ovulate regularly. The ovaries among PCOS women often contain numerous small cysts clustered under an outer capsule. It is important to note that having multiple ovarian cysts and not ovulating on a regular basis is just one element or a symptom of a complex condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome PCOS that is triggered by an array of hormonal and metabolic disorders.

35 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 35 Page Are Ovarian Cysts Dangerous While most ovarian cysts are considered "functional” and harmless about 10 of women of childbearing age may develop polycystic ovarian syndrome PCOS with all its related symptoms and potential health complications. Because ovarian cysts may rupture bleed or twist the ovary ovarian cysts have the potential to cause pelvic pain and discomfort during intercourse. If you experience severe sudden pelvic pain especially if it is accompanied by vomiting or a fever you should seek emergency treatment. Ruptured ovarian cysts can potentially cause serious complications which must be considered. The twisting of the ovary is one of those complications which may lead to infertility. Leakage of cystic fluid into the abdominal cavity may also result in a condition called sepsis. Ruptured cysts can also lead to dangerous hemorrhagic complications. A further complication of a ruptured ovarian cyst is a condition called peritonitis: an inflammation of the mucous membrane which lines the abdominal cavity. Peritonitis is a serious condition that can endanger your health. Although it’s rather rare some ovarian cysts especially among women in their fifties may develop into cancerous growths. The problem with cancerous ovaries is that they usually produce no symptoms until they are larger in size. This is why it is extremely important to diagnose and detect gynecologic cancers in their early stages through annual pelvic exams.

Convent i onal Medi ci ne In T he T reat ment O f Ov arian Cy st s Natural Medicine vs. Conventional Medicine The Crucial Differences Conventional Medicine While natural medicine perceives the human body as a complete holistic system unified with nature conventional medicine treats the body as a group of separate physical organs. Conventional medicine has failed to acknowledge the sad truth that man along with all living creatures will never be compatible with artificial chemicals no matter how identical these chemicals may look feel and smell compared to the natural varieties e.g. an orange-flavored beverage vs. a freshly squeezed orange. Synthetic chemicals cannot truly or completely be absorbed by the body. Because of their artificial form synthetic chemicals of any kind are foreign to the body. This is why these chemicals cannot enter your system without creating some level of disruption. While holistic medicine’s objective is mainly to restore the body back into a state of inner balance to increase optimal genetic function and to help the body cleanse and heal itself conventional medicine focuses its entire efforts on “making the patient comfortable” and by calming the pain with drugs and ointments which function as patches to the symptoms of the disease.

37 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 37 Page Conventional Treatments For PCOS The most common treatment for PCOS offered by most doctors who are unfamiliar with PCOS is the prescription of birth control pills to treat the symptoms that the woman patient complains about. Other physicians who are more discerning and will correctly diagnose the array of symptoms as “polycystic ovary syndrome ” may include special hormone-regulating drugs and anti-androgen treatments in addition to birth control pills. To treat the insulin resistance factor among PCOS women most physicians will also offer an approved anti-diabetic drug called Metformin. Metformin works by reducing the production of glucose by the liver and by increasing the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin thus making the insulin activity in the body more effective. This way less insulin is required to perform the same amount of metabolic work. In short Metformin helps to lower your insulin levels by assisting your body to transport glucose using less insulin. Metformin may also help lowering cholesterol and improving energy levels. However the benefits of Metformin come with a price tag: a myriad of side effects are associated with the intake of this drug. These include but are not limited to: general malaise fatigue gastrointestinal disturbances vomiting and frequent bowel movements or diarrhea vitamin B12 malabsorption pregnancy complications liver or kidney problems hair loss and anemia. As you can see the problem with conventional treatment is that the medications used for treating PCOS have undesirable side effects and uncertain long-term health consequences.

38 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 38 Page Conventional Treatments For Ovarian Cysts Once your doctor has felt the swelling above your ovary performed the annual pelvic exam and diagnosed your pain as the potential presence of an ovarian cyst an ultrasound is often performed to establish the location size and shape of the cyst. Other tests that physicians often perform are hormone level tests pregnancy tests and a CA-125 test. The latter is a special blood test that is aimed at determining whether the cyst is cancerous. Note that some cancer growths in the ovaries don’t make enough CA-125 to be detected by the test. Moreover several non-cancerous health conditions may increase the levels of CA-125 in the blood. The following are the most common steps medical doctors are most likely to suggest in case your cysts turn out to be non-cancerous : Watchful Waiting The most common treatment offered for women who are in their childbearing years is to be re-examined in one to three months while waiting and watching to see if the ovarian cyst has changed in size or if some symptoms start to manifest. Note that this treatment will be offered only if you have no symptoms initially and if your cyst is of the fluid-filled type. Birth Control Pills Birth control pills will typically be offered to women who frequently develop cysts or if their cysts have failed to dissolve within the three months of watchful waiting. The purpose of the pills is to prevent ovulation. Not only do birth control pills fail to treat the root cause of ovarian cysts but the intake of birth control pills can often worsen your ovarian cyst condition and carries an array of side effects.

39 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 39 Page Surgery If your cyst is large painful solid or filled with debris your doctor may suggest that it be surgically removed especially if the cyst is irregular in shape and persistently growing. Cystectomy is a surgical procedure aimed at removing the cyst without removing the ovary. It is suggested only in cases where the cyst is not cancerous. Occasionally a doctor may elect to remove the affected ovary while leaving another ovary intact so you will still be able to ovulate and maintain a normal hormone cycle. There are two main surgical procedures : Laparoscopy and Laparotomy. Laparoscopy is suggested when your cyst looks benign on the ultrasound and is rather small in size. This surgical procedure is done under general anesthesia where a small incision is made above or below the navel . An instrument to remove the cyst is then inserted into the abdomen. Laparotomy is usually performed if the cyst looks suspect and is large in size. This procedure involves general anesthesia and a sample cyst tissue will often be taken to diagnose cancerous growth. If the cyst is cancerous the doctor may completely remove the ovary and other surrounding tissues that may be affected. Important note: while there are rare instances when a surgical procedure is necessary ovarian cancer is extremely rare and in most cases watchful waiting along with following the dietary detoxification and lifestyle suggestions outlined in this guide have been proven to be extremely effective in eliminating ovarian cysts and PCOS symptoms quickly and safely. Keep in mind that ovarian cysts are only one facet of a complex hormonal/metabolic condition and thus are most likely not the cause of your problems.

This has been proven to elevate the risk of many health conditions such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

41 Chapter 2 – All About PCOS Ovarian Cysts 41 Page The Holistic Medicine Way Natural medicine or holistic medicine yields to nature and its everlasting laws. It is not preoccupied with diagnosis or cures simply because of the belief that what causes a disease to exist in the human body is the body itself being out of balance. The laws responsible for illness cannot exist in a healthy and complete body. A good allegory to that perception is that darkness cannot exist in the presence of light. Holistic medicine perceives the body as a unified whole body mind and spirit and not by the sum of its organs. According to holistic medicine everything you absorb attitudes beliefs chemicals or food directly affects your system as a whole in a negative or positive way. For that reason holistic medicine aims to avoid any intrusive approach to healing but rather nourishes the approach of building a strong immune system increasing the body’s functionality and enhancing spiritual and mental strength and stability. Natural medicine yields to nature and believes in the individual obligation to clear the body of any unnatural residues. A body that is cleansed of any unnatural elements is more harmonized with nature and thus more rejuvenated and vitalized. Unnatural elements can be anything from synthetic unnatural foods polluted air and water inadequate exercise accumulations of toxins in your body and any extreme activity that does not yield to the laws of nature. A disease occurs when the body deteriorates because the body is in an imbalanced state or experiencing disharmony due to excessive toxicity or inadequate nutrition or deficiency of force a term referring to a lack of nutritional energy or the ability of the body to handle disease and heal itself using nutritional material.

Most illnesses occur when the body’s cleansing organs cannot remove all the excessive amounts of toxins that get into the cell walls bones hormone receptors tissues and even cell surfaces. In most cases the moment toxins enter your system the disease begins. When symptoms occur it is often too late as something has already been damaged. Proponents of natural medicine believe that by allowing the body to conduct its process of removing internal toxins also known as detoxification along with restoring it to a state of balance with the right nutrition more than 90 of illnesses can be healed by the body itself. Studies have clearly shown that calorie-restricted diets tend to normalize hormones induce ovulation and enhance fertility while reducing other PCOS problems. Moreover improvements in diet exercise and lifestyle combined with methods to detoxify the body are essential methods of dealing with PCOS while eliminating and preventing ovarian cysts formation.

A complete medical history check will include questions about your general menstrual history your reproductive history including pregnancies miscarriages/abortions you have had and birth control methods how long your cycles are how much you bleed in a cycle and the time between cycles. Your health care practitioner should also conduct a pelvic and physical exam where your height weight and blood pressure will also be checked. In some cases a fertility specialist or your gynecologist will conduct a vaginal ultrasound to check for multiple follicle cysts in your ovaries. A probe is inserted in the vagina and the picture is shown on a screen beside the bed. Due to the fact that women with PCOS do not cycle normally they may be at a higher risk for endometrial cancer. Measuring the endometrial lining can help a physician check the health of your endometrium. In some cases a biopsy of the lining is also recommended.
