Is it possible to get rid of ovarian cyst by Ayurveda?

The number of females with ovarian cysts is increasing day by day. The reason behind this is the lifestyle and diet we are following. Cyst development in ovaries is a complex process and is influenced by the imbalance of hormones as well. Ayurveda understands this situation as a result of srotas blockage. Srotas are the microchannels in the body that get blocked by the accumulation of endotoxins. Endotoxins are produced by the imbalance of the primary energies of the body called as Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These endotoxins are known as Ama in Ayurveda and are the reason for development of multiple diseases and disorders. The story behind development of ovarian cyst pain starts from a mismanaged lifestyle and incompatible food combination. This results in digestive disturbance and thus production of Ama. Slowly, with time this ama starts accumulating in microchannels of the body and moves into different parts under influence of Vata.
