I've had a ganglion cyst in my left wrist since I was 10 years old. I dont remember what has caused it. It gets smaller sometimes and then comes back, mostly when I put too much weight on it. Nothing excessive, even doing pushups can be too much.
I really want to be able to do a handstand, cartwheels etc. In order to do this the ganglion must go! Does any of you have experience with healing it on a LFRV diet? I've read online that one of the old methods to get rid of it is to break it with a book. Must hurt a lot! And am hoping diet will help. Have been low fat vegan for 2 years and (high) raw / fully raw for 1.
Surgery is not an option.
Love to you!
OK my poor attempt to explain whats a ganglion in english ... not that u didnt do the research yet.
But its just like a "bag" in ur tendon-sheet filled with tendon liquid (looks like hair-gel).
Some ppl just have it. Genetics? Bad diet?
I used to have that too. On my left wrist. Actually since 2000 something...2004 maybe... i used to insert a needle (at work) and suck out the liquid. Sometimes it worked and it was gone for a while... sometimes it filled up straight afterwards and was there again. Sometimes it was jsut gone for months or even years.
dont do that at home on ur own without ppl that know what they are doing.....with dirty stuff, no gloves no desinfection stuff !!!!!!!!!!!! INfections in the tendons and hands in general can be really really nasty !!!!
Last year i got my ganglion back while being on this lifestyle. It was pressing on some nerves and hurted while playing guitar. Was really annoying. I ve tried again to suck out the liquid with a needle (at work) but needle wasnt big enough obviously. Coz i couldnt manage to suck the stuff out (was too jelly like).
I was also starting to take iodoral (iodine supplement) in November and a few weeks later the ganglion was gone. OF COURSE i have no idea if it was coincidence or because of the supplement.
The only option imo is letting the liquid get sucked out (by a doc !!!! ) to see if it stays small or fills up again.
THe book method just bursts this tendon-sheet-bag and all the liquid is in ur tissue then. (dunno if thats good hmmmm. U could also mess up ur tendon sheet with this radical option. (imo).
U could maybe also try wearing a cast to not move ur wrist for a while. Maybe the tendon-sheet-bag grows back and doesnt fill up with tendon-sheet-liquid anymore.
