Blackstrap Molasses, Castor Oil Packs
05/08/2012: Queen B from Kingston, Jamaica: "I have tried the lemonade diet only this time using the BSM instead of the syrup and girls! .. Mek me tell unu! .. My period have gone back to normal no heap of clotting etc. My energy levels are also better.
The doctors claim I have 7 fibroids. So I have am trying the Castor oil packs for two weeks now and will continue for thirty days because God knows I dont trust any doctor to cut me.
I will surely let you know what I see in June 2012 when I do another ultrasound. Castor Oil cures tumors so I believe I'll be fine."

Blackstrap Molasses, Clay
[YEA] 08/09/2007: Tiffany from Los Angeles, California: "After my third period using Terramin Clay and BSM I can confirm that the tumors are no longer present.
When I began the Terramin treatment I noticed an abscess on my left breast that drained for appox. 4 days (the scarring remains as proof this occurred). Since then I no longer experience phantom pains that I had from my left breast. As I continued my treatment I noticed that during the second of the three periods an abscess formed outside my vaginal area. This drained for appox. 4 days concurrent with my period.
After the second period I've begun to experience an increase in energy, weight loss has continued (the fibroids increased my weight and this is being automatically reduced),dark circles under my eyes are gone, and NO MORE tumors as of third period. Also, no acne.
Native Americans use[d] clay to remove tumors and I can confirm that it works. Also, using BSM regulates the period VERY well. I will now decrease my use of Terramin and increase the use of BSM to regulate my cycle.
This is a wonderful cure for tumors, both the BSM and Terramin have similar mineral components and you don't need surgery to be healed"Replies
09/05/2007: Lisa from Bridgetown, Barbados replies: "Clay for fibroids Please post this question on the site. Tifanny, could you please clarify if you used the TERRAMIN tablets or Terramin powder? I have one uterine fibroid of 10cm. I will start using ACV & baking sokda and then use the clay in either powder or tablets depending on what you suggest that I use."
[YEA] 07/13/2007: Tiffany from Los Angeles, California: "I've experienced all the symptoms of Fibroids. I did BSM and it did significantly help; enough that my partner noticed the reduction in blood. I became a Vegetarian also to cut back on eating animals and consuming their toxins and fatty materials.
I'm using terramin clay (eat plenty of apples for fiber) now to stop the fibroids. What I have noticed coming out of my body now is astonishing. It's really de-toxing. I stopped using BSM and not solely use the clay, although I may return to the BSM for a little while longer. Both the clay and BSM are rich in iron, so my hair and nails are growing like mad and are extremely thick and strong. I'm now begriming to naturally lose the weight I gained from the fibroids. I deduced that the product will speak for itself and I'm not going to kill myself in the gym trying to lose weight. My appetite has diminished so that I eat one complete meal a day and one small one in the evening, if at all. My cravings for sweets is gone; however, I do chew ice - now I think it more to do with work stress than anemia as my eyes are white with no discoloration and the other signs of a healthy body are reappearing. I will say that I need to get into shape. Although, fatigued doesn't last long, walking up stairs just about kills me. I ordered the clay through cal earth minerals when I saw the discovery channel piece on its calcium ab/adsorption benefits too."Replies

Blackstrap Molasses, Nattokinase
[YEA] 11/08/2008: Lisa from Bradenton, Florida: "I've read a lot of these testimonials and after reading so many women suffered the exact same conditions I have I really want to share something in addition to the molassas that really does make a life changing difference.
I too have had anemia problems all my life and they became severely worse when I developed fibroid cysts(myoma). After an ultra sound indicating some extremely large cysts my Doctor advised a hysterectomy was the only alternative in removing the fibroid cysts. I opted to get back with him about that decision. I researched for an alternative cure and what I found was a product called Fibrovan which not only rid me of my fibroid cysts in less then 60 days, but reversed my anemia within the first week. It saved me from having a hysterectomy and rid me of my chronic anemia.
After I rid my body of the fibroid cysts I then started a regular intake of a TBSP of molasses in my tea each morning as my sweetner and I have not had any anemia problems whatsoever in over a year. Mostly I have to give an enormous amount of praise and gratitude to the supplement but...the molasses too is making a difference in boosting my iron."

[YEA] 10/25/2006: Carol from South Holland, IL: "Eating Raw Cabbage for stomach pain. Also used the cabbage leaves to relieve the pain in my breast after my baby was born, and to dry up the flow of milk. It stopped the stomach pain from fibroid tumors. I believe it will completely heal my stomach if I continue to eat bothe the red and green cabbage raw. The Lord told me to do this to relieve the pain and it worked! I never knew about the extensive healing properties found in the cabbage before."
Castor Oil Packs
[YEA] 03/22/2008: DJ from Denver, Colorado: "My doctor told me I had fibroids in my uterus. I applied a castor oil pack with a heating pad on the area for an hour a day for one whole week while I napped and they were completely gone at my next check up thirty days later! Amazing! I believe castor oil is a gift from God to us."Replies
09/02/2008: Mary from Tampa, Florida replies: "To DJ from Denver CO: How big was your fibroid may I ask? You said you did the CASTOR pack...and your fibroid went away in a week? Can you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I really would appreciate it.
If anyone out there has used the CASTOR pack method or any method to GET RID of your Fibroid, please contact me. Peace, Mary"
05/12/2009: Yasa from Fairfield, CT replies: "HI DJ from Colorado,
Could you tell me how large your fibroids were? I would like to try a natural cure for healing from fibroids. I am wondering if castor oil packs can shrink all sizes of fibroids. I have a few, one is 7.5 cm, and a 4cm cyst on one of my ovaries. One fibroid is calcified.
Thanks so much."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 09/16/2011: Yinka from Manchester, United Kingdom replies: "Thanks to everyone for sharing your experiences, I just want to add that, if you're going to use the castor oil pack, please, please DO NOT USE any cream on your body before you do so, I had used a progesterone cream earlier in the morning after my shower, and at night before I slept I used the castor oil pack for 30 minutes on my stomach as I was trying to shrink fibroids. Luckily I usually use it for 1hour, but only spent 30 minutes that day. Then I went to sleep when I woke up the next day having had another shower and about to towel my body, I noticed some severe black criss-crossing lines all along my stomach area where I had placed the oil pack, it had eaten deep into my skin, so I stopped using the castor oil pack altogether. It's 2 months since and only still beginning to fade."
Cream of Tartar
03/04/2013: Jmp from Memphis, Tennessee: "I am a woman with fibroids, I am reading all of the information that has been given for remedies. I have been reading all the good stories and remedies. The last time I went to the doctor they told me my uterus is the size of a woman 7 months, also my cervix is tilted because of the fibroids, and I do have a discharge constantly. I have been taking Cream of tartar a herb that is found in the store where the seasonings are. I have been using it for about 3 months, yes my stomach is not as big as it use to be also my stomach was very round and hard. I can still feel some of the fibroids. The discharge is still their, also it smells horrible. Also I must add when I go to the ladies room in the morning their is something describeing something a cyst that comes out of me. I am sure this is going to take some time. I will add The Apple Cider Vinegar , Garlic pill and Vitamin E to my diet. I have notice also that my hair is shedding some, I believe its because of the fibroids I will use Olive oil for that, meaning I will oil my scalp and hair with oilve oil starting soon. Also my doctor recommend the same thing that I have a hysteroctomy. No, thats not what I want. I believe natural remedies work as well. I wanted to know is anyone familiar with using the Creme of Tartar for fibroids."
07/23/2010: Purple2002 from New Orleans, Louisiana, Usa: "I found out recently that I may possibly have a fibroid in my abdominal area. The thing is the doctors are not sure and they want me to have surgery to get it out to see if the growth is cancerous or not. The doctors said if it is cancerous, they are going to have to take either my uterus out or my ovaries and possibly my appendix. I am a 26 years old with no children, and may want some in the future. The growth is noticeable since I am petite. The growth is 15. 5 cm long and 14 cm wide. It is above my uterus so I still get my periods every month and I don't have any pain with this growth, just a little discomfort on my uterus from the size of the growth. I want to treat this just like any tumor rather it's benign or not. Can you please email me some remedies to rid this growth? I already changed my diet and started taking supplements like Quint Essence, Flaxseed oil capsules, fish oil capsules, and Vitamin C capsules. I stop eating red meat, and eat fish, turkey, and chicken purchased from Whole Foods Market. I eat my salads with apple cider vinegar. Please help. Thanks."Replies
07/24/2010: Diane from Berkeley, Ca replies: "I tried every natural remedy known to man. None worked well (TCM & acupuncture worked a little but ultimately failed every time). I had several (successful) rounds of laproscopic fibroid surgeries before finally (and happily) having a partial hysterectomy in my mid-40's. You should not have to resort to full hysterectomy at your age, or indeed ever. Regardless of size of fibroid, there are many different treatment options, and many can retain the uterus to allow you to have kids. Don't just consult your normal OB/GYN. Talk to a physician known for specializing in fibroids, as there are many different options these days. And recovery for laproscopic surgery is fast (1 - 3 weeks)."
07/24/2010: Nyl Gracelle from Redlands, Ca replies: "I have been diagnosed with multiple intramural (leiomayomata)fibroids last July 5, 2009 and had a D&C immediately on July 10 to scrape things from my uterus for biopsy. Very thankful because the fibroids turned out benign. I tried to changed my diet and took herbal. Nothing happened for 6 months of my battle because the ultrasound result was unchanged, the same size (the biggest is 6.5cm x 6.2cm) by March 2010 I came across this site and immediately drank ACV with baking soda and molasses (2 tbsp, 1/8 tsp and 1 tsp respectively. I also did massage my abdomen using castor oil daily with a 2 day break in a week. I had a very heavy bleeding before but with the use of ACV w/ baking soda and molasses my bleeding was minimized. My OB/GYN however placed me under a progesterone (for 10 days in a month) so that everything will become normal and it really did! Last June 11, 2010 I had my 3rd ultrasound after 6 months and I am so happy that my fibroids the biggest in size became 5.6cm x 4. 1cm. Nothing is impossible with the Lord. Keep praying and do some research. I hope with this info you will be enlightened. There's hope and have faith!"
01/18/2013: Rose from Conroe, Tx replies: "Drink water with flaxseed ground, boil the flaxseed ground, what works best in my opinion, adding a pinch of unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Try venus flytrap pills too. I believe this is the best thing, apple cider and water. Just skim off the flaxseed. Drink the oils that boil in the water. God bless you! Change the way you eat as well. Try sauteeing prunes, raisins, apples in butter adding it to oatmeal and eat a lot of fruit and broccoli, don't eat pizza until the weekends. The tumor should come out."
[YEA] 05/03/2009: Realities from Oceanside, CA: "Black strap molasses:
I had a protuding fibroid the size of a GRAPEFRUIT---that was trying to abort itself through my cervix. Before I almost bled to death I had it surgically cut out. It developed over 6 months and just after I was prescribed birth control pills (hormones)from an obgyn. I stopped the pills after two weeks but the fibroid continued to grow.
i gulped bs molasses from the jar after the surgery. Then i stopped drinking that nasty bsm and eliminated the birth control pills. I changed my diet. No meat, eggs,( which is full of hormones ) no fish, and minimal dairy products and (only if RBST free or goats milk.) LOW FAT, HIGH FIBER is good. I eat kale on my sandwhiches instead of lettuce etc.
I eat sour kraut and drink water water water. I HAVE NOT HAD ONE INCIDENCE SINCE 2003. THATS ABOUT 6 YEARS.
If I slip up on this regimen, I notice it. My next period is clotty, lasts longer, and is more painfull, the tint is red/orange. ---TIME TO get my diet back on track BUCKLE DOWN!

[YEA] 11/07/2008: Bonnie from Hamilton, Hamilton, Ontario: "I have read your site about black strap molasses and "hoping" to get rid of fibroid tumors. I have tryed it and it didn't work for me. I think this site is just a way of getting people's hope up. I had my hope up on trying this molasses thing, like i said it didn't work for me. nothing can get rid of fibroids. if there was, the doctors would tell you, and we would't have to have a hysteromecty's. think about it...it's something that grows inside of you..if there was a cure in molasses wouldn't they tell you?? I really don't believe in this stuff. I have tryed it and i can't speak for everyone...but it didn't work for me. Were all here for a little hope and cure, but really it doesn't work.the only thing i did was to cut out coffee, something i found out on my own..as far as im concerned, that helped me alot!! no more heavy periods. now there normal and i have 2 fibroid tumors and they were almost the size of a baseball. i'm not sure if they are gone yet, i still have to go to the doctors to find out, but my period is back to normal. thank you.."Replies
12/30/2008: Melissa from Snellville, GA replies: "no the doctor would not tell you about natural means to treat fibroids because it would keep people out of the doctors office there for interfering with his lively hood which is prescribing medicine and patients going under the knife. natural treatments take time. you have to be patient and give them time to work"
09/28/2009: Lisacstyles from Sunny Isles, Florida replies: "Just taking blackstrap molasses alone will take much longer if you continue to eat foods with added hormones. Fibroids are hormonal imbalances. You must detox your liver and remove all animal from your diet as well as all of the rest.. eating a majority of green leafy foods, remove every hormone and animal product from your diet and remove caffeine as well. then just wait,, it took me a year and my periods are finally at a place that i can actually walk around and work ...what a difference!!!"
Eliminate Coffee, Eat Grapes
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 08/28/2009: Maggie from Hamilton, Ontario: "Hi, I have Fibroids too, and suffered as you guys too. I read alot about this kind of thing and read that drinking coffee doesn't help! So i stopped drinking coffee, I only drank 2 cups a day. And now my periods r normal. No more heavy, where you can't walk from here to there...no more clots, that scares the heck out of ya. Thats been over a year now, and I'm still doing fine. And I also eat grapes every day, green or red. Not a specific amount, I just eat them.I HOPE this helps someone, I really do!! I feel for you all."
Evening Primrose Oil, B Vitamins, Turmeric
[YEA] 11/08/2007: Tanya from Olympia, WA: "I have had anemia for over a year and was treating it with iron pills that were not working. My iron went from 31 to 35 and back to 31. I had a ultrasound done and found out I had fibroids. I chose not to have any procedure done and am treating everything naturally. I tried the black strap molasses in coffee and couldn't get it down so I've been eating 1 tablespoon in a bowl of Cream of Wheat every morning with raisins and a tablespoon of flaxseed every morning. All of those foods together provide 78% of your daily iron! I just got my blood checked and I am normal! My iron is 42! That was only after one month of eating the Cream of wheat every day.
Now for my fibroids, I will get those checked in 4 more months, but I feel so much better than i did two months ago. For those I have not drank any alchohol, and stop taking birth control pills. Since Fibroids grow with Estrogen I decided after being on them 20 years it was time to give my body a break anyhow (even though I don't smoke etc) I have also been taking 1250 mg primrose oil, B-100 vitamins and turmeric. I have also been drinking a glass of Apple Cider with a tablespoon of ACV in it every night. I have been following a candida diet which if someone would like to know what it is I can post. So, thank you so much for the advice! I will definately post the results of my future ultrasound and I'm sure the news will be great!"Replies

Fibroid Growth Theories
[SIDE EFFECTS] 11/08/2009: Daisy from Nicosia, Cyprus: "Fibroids: I am 52 years old. I am on Zoladex (generic name Goserelin) to help breast cancer and it helped shrink the 6 cm fibroid in my uterus. However, it has flared up again despite the strong medication. I believe it is because I recently started dairy products after abstaining for a year because of press reports about a link with breast cancer. I have also been using natural progesterone cream which in my case is not balancing estrogen as it is zero in my blood analysis BECAUSE THE DRUG lowered it to zero. I suspect the cream may have also fed the benign egg because I have used it together with this drug without specialist advice. It may have fed the fibroid. I tried ACV and it immediately helped."
09/18/2013: Amanda from Graz: "Please can anyone tell me the right supplements and foods that can help in shrinking fibroid?"Replies
09/18/2013: Claire from Pasadena, California replies: "Hi Amanda,
I would first advise to avoid sugar whenever possible. Then I would advise to eat alkalizing foods. I have been reading posts on Earth Clinic for a few years now and have seen great reports on women using apple cider vinegar, blackstrap molasses, and even hormone balancing herbs like red raspberry leaf. A friend of mine who is a personal trainer here in Los Angeles believes that exercise which focuses on building core root energy is very important for women who have issues in the pelvic cavity, ie fibroids, ovarian cysts, bladder issues. She sends her lady clients to kundalini yoga, african dance and/or bellydance classes!
Please let us know what you learn!"
09/19/2013: Amanda from Graz replies: "Thanks Claire, pls what type of sugar should I avoid the real sugar or all forms of sugar. Secondly am a Nigerian living in Graz. I dont know what is apple cider vinegar or blackstrap molasses. Can they be bought in pharmaceutical shops or herbal shops. Thanks once again."
