Vitamin E

Vitamin E has to be my all time favorite because I had a problem back in 1994 so I went to the doctor. I was having an in office procedure done that day but I had a question about a cyst that was on the top of my wrist. A cyst is a semisolid, gaseous or fluid filled closed sac like structure or growth under the skin.

My cyst are genetic or basically inherited. Most of the females in my family have had them any where in their body from wrist to breast cysts. These are basically fluid filled I get and they tend to be around my wrist this one was about nickle sized and slightly painful.I am prone to having them in my breast as well.

I had went to the doctor for an entirely different purpose but thought I would ask about my cyst to see what the doctor said. I fully expected to hear that he was going to have to cut it out to remove it. Well much to my surprise he said, "you will not hear many doctors advocate alternative medications or vitamins but I suggest Vitamin E" He said trust me it will take care of it.

I took vitamin E for about a month and the cyst completely disappeared! yes, I am saying you can get rid of a fluid filled cyst by taking Vitamin E! I have done it so I know it works. I am not expert on cyst but seeing is believing for me. I take vitamin E still daily and I have not had any problems other than when I skip taking it then I see a recurrence of the cysts especially in my breast. I am sure thankful I came across that doctor who was so well informed on the power of vitamin supplements.

About 2 years ago my cousin called me and say a friend of hers had a cyst on her ovary. I told her about the Vitamin E the doctor recommended & she passed the information along to her friend. She called me a few weeks later to say her friend took Vitamin E and indeed the cyst went away. She was so happy and surprised that it worked so quickly and so well she takes Vitamin E now as well.

If you have problems with reoccurring cysts like I do you might want to give Vitamin E a try. If you take other vitamins please be aware you can take to much of anything. Ask your doctor before starting anything new if you are on any medication that may interact with Vitamin E.
