Doctors fail to make the connection between cysts on the face and pituitary imbalances, according to our panel member, naturopath Dr Harald Gaier. In his practice, it is common to see women with facial cysts having corresponding ovarian cysts. You may wish to have an ultrasound scan done to determine whether you're also suffering from an ovarian cyst.
Dr Gaier's treatment of choice is to regulate the pituitary using a tincture of Vitex agnus castus (chasteberry). Take 10-15 drops per day in a little water, preferably first thing in the morning. It may take up to seven or eight weeks for the body to reabsorb the cyst, says Dr Gaier. If you have a corresponding ovarian cyst, it will take up to nine months for the herb to dissolve it.
