View Full Version : Left ovary pain
07-07-2010, 11:47 AM
My mom has some left ovary pain and has a doctor's appointment. I'm not sure what this means but I did a little research. I guess I have 2 questions, anyone gone through this and found out the cause? And... what can be done as far as raw foods to combat the problem if any?
I know, of course that she needs to get a diagnosis from the doctor first but I just wanted some insight on any knowledge of this. I also know that it could be a number of things.. Just curious. I would desperately like my mom to enjoy the benefits of raw foods and not wait until she has no choice. :( I would hope and pray that it never came to that.

the logical answer is a cyst. There are probably other reasons as well... Depending on the type of cyst (hematoid or dermoid) it may dissolve on its own (hematoid) - and may be cyclic. If she is menopausal, it could also be caused by unbalanced hormones.
I speak from personal experience... I had a ruptured cyst at 22 - one of my daughters has had 3 surgically removed between 20 and 32. YES, they tend to be hereditary...
Not a DR. nor do I claim to be one on TV, as they say.
Best is to have the ultrasound her DR. will probably recommend and know for sure.

She is menopausel and she isn't taking anything. What do "raw" women :D do for menopause?

I am not a doctor but it seems to be a cyst. These can melt away with raw food and balancing the emotions. I recommend Louise Hay book "Healing your life".

Most ovarian cysts will go away on their own. If you don't have any bothersome symptoms, especially if you haven't yet gone through menopause, your doctor may advocate watchful waiting.Vitamin K is a possible, and perhaps not well known, cause of ovarian pain. Vitamin E thins the blood, so like anticoagulants, long term usage may also cause a vitamin K deficiency.

She should check if she is Vitamin K deficient.

Hmmm..interesting. You know, when you said vitamin K, that is the vitamin that always stands out for me as far as the nutrients I am getting. I get a ton of vitamin K in my diet eating raw. So its good to know. Hopefully I can ward off anything. :D
