Acupuncture for Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are a common condition of the female reproductive system. Ovarian cysts are a sign that your ovaries are not effectively processing follicles or clearing the wastes away from tissues. This can occur due to the presence of inflammation or the cysts themselves may cause inflammation.

Patients with ovarian cysts may have no symptoms, or they may experience lower abdominal pain, especially during sex. Many cases of ovarian cysts resolve on their own without treatment. However, sometimes they do not. Many of our patients with ovarian cysts have experienced significant benefits from our treatments. While most patients report a reduction in symptoms, for some patients it results in a cure.

Acupuncture research at Harvard Medical School and many other institutions around the world have determined that acupuncture has profound effects on the body's physiology. These include a wide range of molecular and cellular effects on the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, and growth-regulatory systems.

As an acupuncturist and holistic health practitioner, Dr. Windsor uses the latest research and technology to find solutions for patients with ovarian cysts. During acupuncture for ovarian cysts, between 2 and 8 hair-thin needles are placed to a shallow depth in the legs and abdomen. This treatment helps to normalize levels of hormones so that the body can more effectively heal itself from ovarian cysts.

Most patients are relaxed throughout the treatment. Because the body's healing systems are activated, it is not unusual for patients to fall asleep or experience deep rest during the treatment.

During treatment for ovarian cysts, it is sometimes necessary to address another underlying reason for the condition. Therefore it is often helpful when patients can bring information regarding any recent lab tests. We will create an integrated treatment strategy for your unique concerns and conditions. We welcome the opportunity to partner with you, and with your other medical providers, in order to help you achieve the best outcome possible for your health.
"In some cases, the disappearance of large ovarian cysts has been confirmed by ultrasound around 1-2 months after beginning acupuncture treatment. Depending on each individual's unique situation, I may also provide recommendations for nutrition to assist the healing process. "
