Dear Kavita joshi
Please scroll up and follow the method given in Multiple Herbs. Apart from this take Saw Palmetto internal. Study the results for one month and write us back. Always consult a doctor before taking any kind of medication.

Dear Sir
In your case physical diagnosis is very important. I suggest you to consult an ayurvedic doctor and get your test done. He will examine your condition and will recommend you the medicine accord to the condition. Nobody can suggest you the remedy without seeing your condition.

The problem is internal. You have to cleanse/detox your body. Lointo green smoothie cleanse and water fasting. I like to ease into a water fast starting off with a green smoothie cleanser then water fast. Water fast is a fast and very effective way of allowing your body to heal itself. Your body stops focusing on digesting due to you not eating and focus more on healing itself wherever the body needs healing. Trust me I've healed myself of health problems the doctors didn't have answers to. Also try applying tea tree oil to your cysts. You can dilute if you don't feel comfortable using it undiluted, but it works better undiluted. And I'm not sure what you are bathing/ showing with but peppermint Castile soap is an all purpose soap and I recommend it especially for having any skin issues. God bless.
