Do not close the bag while in the microwave. Once you remove it from the microwave, you will need to seal the bag and then wrap it in another damp towel before placing it on your lower abdomen.

Keep the flowers in the cup of boiling water for five minutes before you strain it to enjoy a delicious cup of chamomile tea.

Adjust your diet

If you're suffering from ovarian cysts, you will need to make some adjustments to your existing diet. What you eat may affect cyst development. Many women develop polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which can cause problems like irregular periods or amenorrhea. This happens when you have multiple cysts on the ovaries. It is seen that 50% of women who suffer from PCOS are overweight or obese. Researchers believe that there is a link between insulin resistance and PCOS because insulin resistance makes it difficult to lose weight.

So, you will need to avoid foods that can contribute to insulin resistance. Such foods include refined carbohydrates and highly processed foods. You will need to avoid white bread a white potatoes, foods made of white flours, pastries, deserts, muffins and other sugary foods.

While avoiding them, you will also need to eat foods that will help you to regulate weight and fight insulin resistance. Such foods will include high fibre foods like broccoli, almonds, greens, barriers, squash etc.; lean proteins like fish, tofu and chicken; and anti-inflammatory foods and spices like tomatoes, turmeric, kale, olive oil and almonds.
