The TRUE Causes Of Ovarian Cysts

Jul 25, 2008
The causes of ovarian cysts need to be properly understood. A failed or disordered ovulation is basically the main reason of the formation of an ovarian cyst. A functional cyst occurs when follicle is unable to release an egg and its growth continues which eventually lead to the formation of a cyst. In other cases a cyst might be formed at the time the follicle does release an egg but the place where it is released is closed. When this happens the corpus luteum does not form and the cyst keeps on growing. Recent research shows that over production of xenoestorgens is one of main causes of the formation of ovarian cysts.

In order to properly understand the why ovarian cysts occur, one has to first understand properly the functioning of the endocrine glands. The brain's lower portion is called the hypothalamus, and pituitary gland lies underneath it. When a woman's progesterone levels and estrogen go down, this is when hypothalamus begins to send gonadotropin-releasing pulses (GnRH) to the gland. It in its turn sends follicle-stimulating hormones or FSH and it targets the ovary. And because of this, the ovum, which is within the follicles begin to mature. It is the follicles that actually aid in the release of estrogen. It takes about 10 days for the body's estrogen levels to go up by quite a bit. This is when the hypothalamus enhances the pituitary gland and the GnRH's production, and thus producing LH or the Luteinizing Hormone. It's the LH which further aids the process of ovulation and leads to the corpus luteum from the follicle. Corpus luteum again secretes progesterone which is the dominating hormone in the 2nd half in the reproduction cycle. And if there is no pregnancy, the corpus luteum degenerates and both the estrogen and the progesterone level falls.

Ovaries actually grow as small cysts every month. In some abnormal cases, the follicle continues to grow and results in cyst. Hence it can be easily understood that the cysts actually kicked off as normal in the start of the period then what exactly led to the follicular dysfunction and did not allow the egg to be released. Experts are of the opinion that it is because of the female embryo getting exposed to environmental pollutants and xenobiotics, which fakes the estrogen's chemical action on the tissue. During the development of the female embryo, six hundred to eight hundred follicles are made, and every one of them remains within the ovum that is not mature.

The xenobiotics though apparently don't affect the mother, however the baby is much more vulnerable and the ovarian follicles get dysfunctional. They are unable to reach their maturity and the progesterone is not secreted in enough numbers. The damage can never be ascertained till the time the child reaches the age of puberty. The holistic system is the best method of treatment to fight the ovarian cyst causes.

In fact it is difficult to pinpoint any one cause for the cyst. Like any other health condition ovarian cysts can be formed from various causes and their interaction. There are some other factors which are not always the causes of ovarian cyst, but can aggravate a cyst that is already there. A combination of external and health conditions can ruin a person's health and lead to the formation of cysts. The causes of cysts in the ovary are sort of multidimensional; hence the treatment too should be multi dimensional if you want a complete cure. This is why conventional treatments fail so miserably as they are not multidimensional in their approach. They fail to treat the root cause and though temporary relief can be brought yet it is brought at the price of the liver or kidney damage.

Conventional medication only treats the effected part without bothering about the over all health. But the problem is, ovarian cysts may not be caused by just any one single reason but various physical, mental and environmental reasons play a part in their formation. In some cases a person might be prone to diseases because of some genetic combination though that does not mean that we might be open to the threat of genes. In fact by adopting a holistic remedy option, we can alter our genetic structure by some extent. Diseases can be prevented from coming back and the lost health and energy can be regained. Holistic approach emphasizes a healthy diet and lifestyle that helps in expelling the build-up of toxic and other elements that lead to the weakening of the immune system. Various factors such as hormonal imbalance, during the monthly cycle, sleeplessness, stress, antibiotics and steroids too may lead to the formation of the cysts. The holistic approach doesn't include any steroids or antibiotics in its methods thus making it safe and devoid of any side effects.
