I was recently diagnosed as having a dermoid cyst of about 4 cm. As it is not really giving me problems and was only discovered by an overzealous Doctor, I am using a natural approach for healing with both homeopathy and acupuncture. I came across your article on chickweed and was very intrigued. I saw that you mentioned a tincture of chickweed, motherwort and cronewort. I live in New York City and wanted to know is there anyplace you could recommend that I could buy this tincture or the ingredients to make this tincture myself. Any information you could give on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for your attention to this matter. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
We don't have a list of any local places but usually you can find the tinctures at most health food stores. If you don't have any close by, I can give you a couple of online sources we recommend.
Tinctures are usually made from fresh plant material - so if you have access to growing local plants, not dried, you can make your own tictures which is far more cost-effective. Here are directions and more info on making your own here: http://www.susunweed.com/herbal_ezine/May04/healingwise.htm
Just let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thank you so much for your quick response. I just have one other question at the moment. In your opinion, should I use a tincture of only chickweed for the dermoid or a mixture of chickweed, motherwort and cronewort? If you recommend the later, would I find it already mixed in a heath food store, or get the three tinctures separately and then make my own combination?
Again thank you so much for your help. I will keep you updated on my results.
Most likely, you will have to buy them as single tinctures and combine yourself. Chickweed itself is great at dissolving the cysts, but with the dermoid cysts, yes, Susun was talking about mixing the three together. And it often takes a bit of time, so do not be discouraged if it is some months before you have results. It would be safe to use for that length of time.
