[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."
[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
09/28/2008: Kirbie from Somerville, US replies: "what is the candida diet?"
[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."
[YEA] 03/09/2008: Ruth from Ionia, Michigan: "my name is ruth,I used flax seed to cure my fibroid tumors. I would grind them in my coffee grinder . Then I would use about 2tsp a day and sprinkle them over my salad . I found it easier to eat them that way . I also would make flaxseed bread I would use about a 1/2 cup in my loaf of bread . It is very important to grind the flaxseed up to get the benfit of the seeds. Other wise the seeds will just pass right threw you . I did this for about a year and when I went back and had my ultra sound they were gone . I also had a tumor in my breast . I was benine but that also disappeared as well . I never tryed the BSM because I never heard about it working on tumors until now. I end up have a historectomy because my uterus fell . but I still take it so I don't get any tumors in my breast."
[YEA] 12/10/2008: Pamela from Columbus, Ohio: "I have a friend living in toledo, ohio where I stayed only three years ago, my gyn doctor is there who diagnosis me with Fibroids in 1996. I have a case where mine shrinked and one passed based on using a natural remedy my friend gave me. Take Flax seed water soluble capsules and make sure they are the purest form, along with lysine it works. The one that passed was stuck in my opening but the doctor pulled it out and tested it. He found nothing. When I stop taking the products one grew almost an inch. I have since began the regiment again, this time I won't stop till they are gone."
06/01/2014: Susan from San Francisco, CA: "Good morning, On an older fibroid post, I believe it was Tom who mentioned that fibroids were mainly caused by fungus. I wanted him to speak more to that and if by fungus, did he mean candida or something to that effect? I have fibroids and find all this info and site VERY helpful. I look forward to hearing back.
[YEA] 08/27/2012: D Dawn65 from Kuwait: "Last May 18, 2010 I was diagnosed of a cervical cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) of the cervix. My obgyne told me to undergo for chemo, radiation and brachy theraphy, due to financial problem I just underwent 6 days of radiation theraphy. After a year my sympthoms of the cancer was present again. I read about garlic and ginger as a herbal medicine for cervical cancer. I tried garlic first cut it in a smaller pieces and take it with water. After a month the foul smell coming from my genital was gone. After sometime I read about ginger as an ovaarian cancer cell killer. I tried it also I grated it and take it just like taking medicine together with water. After a month believe me there are fibroids that come out of my genital. I continue taking ginger and garlic to be sure that the cell will be gone and not come back anymore. I have pictures of the fibroids that were released from my body."Replies
12/26/2013: Gimba from Abuja, Niger, Nigeria replies: "How do I use ginger and garlic to treat and cure my fibroid?"
12/27/2013: Vinvin from Atlanta replies: "Hi Dawn, How large was your fibroids? Did you take the garlic and ginger daily? What else did you do? I am interested because I have large fibroids. Thanks"
10/20/2013: Dana from Canada: "I am 23 years old not yet married. I'm feeling a big pain while I'm sleeping and during my period. I went to doctor to check with ultrasound and it shown that I have 7cm fibroid inside my uterus he said its very dangerous and you should remove it as soon as possible and before u get married. Is it true or better to leave it and remove after I get married? And is it possible to get pregnant if I have that big and inside the uterus? Is it possible to be something other than fibroid like baby or something else cuz I did sex with my fiance? Please help I am worry"Replies
10/21/2013: Mama To Many from Tennessee, Usa replies: "Dear Dana,
Sorry to hear about the fibroid! You may not have to get it removed at all. Many people have found natural solutions to get fibroids to disappear.
You can read people's stories here:
Blackstrap Molasses has helped many people and Charcoal Poultices have also been known to cure fibroids. There are lots of other stories. I think you will be encouraged.
I suppose it is possible that you would be pregnant. Sonograms have certainly been wrong before. But if it were 7cm size baby, it would already have a heartbeat that they should have been able to detect. Again, anything is possible, but it is probably a fibroid.
Please keep us posted!
~Mama to Many~"
10/03/2012: Terri from White Plains, Maryland: "Ted, How do you make bromelain? Is there anyone out there that has had success with using bromelain to get rid of fibroids. How long did it take?"Replies
10/04/2012: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Terri, the hardish middle part of a fresh pineapple is what has bromelain. Chew on it, then spit the hard stuff out. Or blender it with the rest of the pineapple. This blended stuff can be frozen in ice-pop molds for a yummy treat. I don't know what it's used for, but it seems to be anti-inflammatory."
10/04/2012: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa replies: "Hi Terri, Yes, Mmsg gave you the explanation of bromelain. It can also be taken to help digest meat. Because it has an enzyme effect on meat, it can be used as a meat tenderizer as well. But as for the fibroid, did you look at the success of blackstrap molasses for fibroids on the Fibroids page?
Also, I have heard of enzyme therapy for fibroids but I don't know its success rate.
Hope this helps, Lisa"
08/05/2012: Mandi from Studio City, California: "Hi everyone. So I went to the doctor and was told I had 2 small ovarian cyst and 2 small fibroids... Started searching for a remedy and found a product called Fibroid clear by botanical health it works-fibroids are gone. I also purchased this book called the Anti-estrogenic diet-it changeg my life my health-and I am sure it assisted in getting rid of the fibroids. Going to go to whole foods and get the Apple Cider Vinegar and mollasses for the cyst-so will let you know how that goes... Also for that person with legs cramps it is probably a calcium deficiency! And will fix the problem. Mandi in california! Oh that book is by ori hofmekier you can order it on amazon."
08/03/2012: Michelle from Lawrenceville, Ga, Usa: "Has any one has uterine ebolization done? I am thinking of having one done. I have had a fibroid removed and it came back like years ago. Now its as big as a cantaloupe. I need help to decide which better way to cure it without surgery. Or some remedies that will help me get rid of it. My Doctor said it is pushing my bladder and kidney. Please help."Replies
08/05/2012: Ketan from Mumbai, Maharashtra replies: "go for acv black strap molassess to cure naturally. U can find more information in earthclinic post"
08/09/2012: Michelle from Lawrenceville, Ga, Usa replies: "Hello Ketan from mumbai, thank you for replying. I really want to try the ACV and BSM. Can you please be specific about the mixture of the ACV and BSM? And also how many times a day, and do you take it before meals or after? Michelle."
08/13/2012: Lisa from Dallas, Tx, Usa replies: "To Michelle from Lawrenceville: The dosage for the ACV and BSM treatments varies, but the amounts I've seen mentioned most often are to take up to 2 Tablespoons of Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses (not regular molasses like Grandmas or Brer Rabbit -- very important). You can take it with your ACV or with something else, depends on how you tolerate the flavor. Some people (including me) recommend working up to the 2 Tbsp/day to avoid digestive issues -- start with 1 tsp and work up from there over a couple of days or so.
The recommended amount of Apple Cider Vinegar varies, too -- anywhere from 1 to 2 Tablespoons once or twice a day.
I take one shot glass (about 2 Tbsp) of ACV in an 8oz glass of water with 1 Tablespoon of UBSM mixed in, twice a day. I drink the first glass first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I have my second glass after dinner. How much you take really depends on how well you tolerate the taste. I don't mind the taste, but a lot of people do. See the BSM topics here for other suggestions.
I use Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar "with the Mother". (ACV needs to be unfiltered & natural for best results -- thus "the mother".)
I found it interesting that right on the label for the ACV they have a "health drink" recipe that combines the ACV and UBSM.
I get the UBSM from Sprouts (Sunflower) Natural Food Store -- I think you can also get it from Whole Foods if you have one of those. Also check online sources Netrition and amazon.com.
I get my ACV from my regular grocery store (Tom Thumb/Safeway here in Dallas), but Sprouts also carries it.
If you want to read up more on both the ACV and BSM treatments here are the threads on this site. That's where I got started -- a lot of very good info here. The BSM ACV seems to be helping so far, but I've only been doing it about a month at this point.

03/06/2013: Michelle from Lawrenceville, Ga, Usa replies: "Lisa from Dallas, Tx, Usa - I have been doing the Blackstrap Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar on and off. But it seems it has been working pretty good so far. No more heavy bleeding and I have more energy. I like to know if I have to continue during my monthly cycle, because I have been stopping drinking during my cycle. Thanks Michelle"
07/06/2012: Fynk from Cebu, Cebu: "Hi good day to all, I came across to this website some few days ago and just the same with the rest of you here I am currently diagnosed with fibroids which is intramural that means it is inside my uterus although I am asymptomatic but I have heavy bleeding but not much of the cramps, as of right now I am on a monthly hormonal injection called luprolex. Anybody had this type of treatment before? Pls give me some feedback. I want to try ACV but I want to know if there are contraindications when taking this remedy. I really want my fibroids to shrink and I am going to try any possibility as long as it is not hysterectomy and also I want to know when is the best time to take it- before or after meals and how many minutes before or after you eat? pls send me some tips so I can do it the right way. Thanks so much."
06/12/2012: Sharon32843@yahoo.com from Los Angeles, United States: "Sharon, I live in los angeles and am glad to know. I am not alone in this fibroid tumor battle. I could not become pregnant because of this fibroid condition. I too refuse to get a hysterectomy and still refuse. I just had a pap march and an ultrasound. The fibroids has gotten larger. I did buy flax seed plus. I am fifty one and have been battling this problem since I was thirty three years old. I appreciate Ted sharing this vital information. My fibroids block my uterus. I want to thank everyone for there input and testimony. I will lift all of us up in prayer. I wanted at least two children. It never happened. I am the only one in my family with no children. I love children. I am right there with you ladies."
01/02/2012: Victoria from Morris, Illinois, Usa: "I'm 43 and found out about 5/6 years ago I had a 1" cm tumor in my uterus and every year I had my physical and complained of heavy bleeding and abdominal pain. And my doctor never ordered anymore test ultra sounds ect. So this last summer I insisted and she had her nurse call to tell me it grew and to see the gynecolgist she reffered and do whatever he says. The gynecologist himself called me and said it grew and there were now multiple tumors and my uterus is enlarged becasue of it. So we're trying to reduce the size with birth control pills but he's almost positive they can't just be removed I may need a hysterectomy.
Now I'm furious because my own doctor could have watched them and I could have caught them in time for just the tumor to be removed now it's too late.
I wanted to know if this is medical neglect or not?"
