Baker’s Cyst

It was quite painful.  I even, at one time, did deep knee bends to relieve the pressure.  It did all right.  The fluid drained down my calf (under the skin) and I had a fluid filled shin until my body reabsorbed it; but I still had the cyst.  I eventually found the right combination of herbs as I’ve described above.  The most miraculous of all is that it has never come back.  I believe the strengthening effect of MSM is the reason for that.
