Silicea for Bartholin gland cyst

I am 50 years old and I have been a sufferer of a recurring Bartholin gland cyst for about 20 years now, ALWAYS resulting in an abcess (it flares up about every 6 to 7 years, so I have had the abcessed cysts about 5 times).In the past, after about 2 days, the cyst was swollen and very painful, leading me to my gyno to have it lanced. I have been given antibiotics in the past, which never worked. My last resort is surgery, removing the gland which I hear may be worse than the abcess!!!
I have been taking super strength probiotic acidophilus with trace amount of Silica for about two months now.
For the first time in the history of my cysts, four days went by and it didn't get very painful.
On Feb. 16th, I felt the cyst again. I read on this forum about Silicea (Silica) helping with a Bartholin abcess and went out and bought Boiron Silicea 30 and started taking it on Sunday, Feb 19th. The next day, what little pain I did have diminished, and the pain was totally gone by that Thurs. Feb. 23rd. I still have the cyst, but not the abcess. My gyno said that if it is working, continue to take it (although she has said she knows nothing about Silicea).
Should I continue to take Silicea 30 to totally get rid of the cyst, or is it unsafe to do so??
I also bought Now brand Silica complex to take everyday from now on as a maintenance dose of Silica to keep the cyst from coming back. The dose of Silica in the complex is: Horsetail extract (Equisetum arvense 500mg and Silica (from horsetail extract) 40mg.
Could someone knowledgeable about Silicea~Silica please help me with this!???

Hi, Thanks.

What potency of Calcarea Sulphurica did you take?

 
nawazkhan 6 years ago

I was taking the dose recommended on the bottle of 5 pills 3x daily, same as the Silicea. I was taking them both at the same time.

 
DJersey 6 years ago


I'm sorry, I gave you dosage. I took the Calcarea 30.

 
DJersey 6 years ago

Not a problem.
'I took the Calcarea 30.'
Do you mean Calc Sulph 30C?

One must never self-prescribe as the remedies are very powerful with serious side effects.

 
nawazkhan 6 years ago

I took Calcarea Sulphurica 30c. I am no longer taking it, I am only taking the Silicea 30c. I do not have a homeopathic doctor any where near where I live, so when I saw many women on this site having good results with Silicea and an abcess of the bartholin gland, I gave it a try since prescription medications did nothing and I wound up always getting the abcess lanced. Silicea has been working and I am now in need of advice as to my next step with it.

Hi, Please cut down on the remedies and vitamins etc. I believe you are over doing it.

Do you feel any inside heat?

'Should I continue to take Silicea 30 to totally get rid of the cyst, or is it unsafe to do so?? '
You may continue until the internal body cold is gone. But, please take 2 times a day, 4 pellets nicely dissolved in 1/4 cup of mineral water.

'I also bought Now brand Silica complex to take everyday from now on as a maintenance dose of Silica to keep the cyst from coming back. The dose of Silica in the complex is: Horsetail extract (Equisetum arvense 500mg and Silica (from horsetail extract) 40mg. '
Please do not take the above.

Many prayers for your good health.

Regards
Nawaz

Hello,
No, I do not feel anything inside, just the small lump (cyst), no pain right now. Usually, within two days after the beginning of the cyst, I am in a lot of pain and the cyst gets bigger as the days go by.
i will continue with the Silicea as you have directed, 4 pellets in Mineral water 2x daily until the cyst has disappeared.

Could you explain why the Silica complex should not be taken as a daily supplement? i hear alot of people take it to help their hair, nails.

Thanks so much for all your help :-)

Hi,
One must take one remedy at a time to get accurate results. Please let Silicea perform its functions including all of your other issues.

Over dosing, wrong remedy, wrong potency and too many medicines/vitamins will create serious health issues that will be hard to undo. So, please be careful about the things going into your body.

You are welcome! Please stay happy, healthy and blessed!

Will do.
Thank you again my friend....and the same to you!
