Ovarian cysts may be caused by a combination of following factors:
- Genetic predisposition. But the genetic characteristics can be modified with the help of environmental factors and proper lifestyle related changes.
- Poor dietary choices. Food rich in carbohydrates, junk food, toxic food, and acidic food can bring about hormonal imbalance. Diet rich in sugar and low on fresh vegetables can makes it difficult to flush out toxins aggravating the ovarian cyst problem.
- Weak immune system.
- Insulin resistance: High level of insulin can stimulate ovarian androgen production which reduces the serum sex-hormone binding globulin or SHGB. The SHBG can in turn aggravate the ovarian cyst condition.
- Failed ovulation process: Sometimes, the ovaries fail to release egg on a monthly basis bringing about hormonal imbalance as progesterone is not produced.
Besides the above reasons, toxins in liver and even environmental toxins can aggravate ovarian cysts. Hence, ovarian cyst is very complex to comprehend, diagnose, and treat. So, a multidimensional view adopted by the holistic approach is required. Holistic medicine is effective as it deals with a variety of factors and eliminates the root cause of the disease.
