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.

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!

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..

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

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!!!

I have had a very large uterine fibroid. Three months ago it was about the size of a small cantaloupe and could easily be felt. When last measured by ultrasound a couple of years ago it was the size of a 14 week pregnancy. I did not want the prescribed historectomy and have been looking for a natural cure. About Jan 8 I made some changes in my lifestyle and my fibroid is now the size of a baseball or smaller. I don't know which things have worked but, these are the changes I've made: Started Lougaol's Iodine (6-7 drops per day) BSM 1 TBSP per day, dramatically rudeced wheat consumption, regular excercise, switched to bottled water and no flouride tooth paste, and now what it turns out may be the MOST important thing. I went from drinking 2-3 diet pepsi's per day to maybe one or two a week. I will now cut that out completely after reading the report I'm attaching to here http://myaspartameexperiment.com/ I strongly encourage anyone who consumes Aspertame and suffers from any type of tumor to read about this experiment and STOP Aspertame now!!!!

I have been reading about how people are using Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Black Strap Molasses (BSM) to shrink fibroid tumors. I used low fat vegan and raw diet and I am fibroids free. Nutrition does wonders for the body and helps its ability to heal. I started out with a vegetarian and organic lifestyle after getting fed up with allopathic medicine's appproach to the fibroids I had. I progressed to a vegan and organic nutrition and I transitioned to a raw, vegan nutrition and the fibroids are all gone. I also used herbs and spices such as Vitex (chasteberry), red raspberry leaves, astragalus, garlic, ginger, turmeric, dandelion leaves and roots, milk thistle, cramp bark, fenugreek, red clover, and squaw vine in my regimen.

Within the first week of eating a wholly plant-based diet, all my symptoms were gone. I gained a surge in energy and three months later, overcame chronic anemia that had persisted for three years. The tumors started to shrink and my hormones started to balance; I was no longer irritable. I have since been cured of mood swings, PMS, breast tenderness and fibroids. I also had a tumor on my liver that disappeared as well and I lost 38 pounds without any extra effort. I now have energy for brisk walks, bike rides, weights, yoga and pilates. I am now a firm believer in nutrition and herbs as remedies for all kinds of ailments. There are a lot of research about the effectiveness of nutrition and herbs in curing all kinds of ailments. I shocked the doctors who wanted to surgically remove the fibroids and who told me there was no cure. I am tumor free and I thank all the people who share their experiences on the web and I also thank medical doctors who are using nutrition to help their patients. It is true that we are what we eat.

Fibroid Remedies

Please can anyone tell me the right supplements and foods that can help in shrinking fibroid?

Replied by Claire

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!

Replied by Amanda

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was someone who had a big fibroid (8-11 cm) but little did I realize how big that really is until a doctor pointed it out to me. I didn't believe any of my doctors who said that I must consider surgery. I thought they just want to make money, that's all! I kept coming to this site most of all and read bleeding experiences of women whos bleeding would miraculously stop on ACV etc. None of these women reported their condition a few months from their severe bleeding episodes. So I kept hoping my fibroid would just disappear or at the most the symptoms would come to an end. I was WRONG. I would just keep looking for & trying natural remedies one after another while my condition kept getting worse and I ended up in the ER 4-5 times, with profuse bleeding, gigantic clots, high pulse rate (you can die if the bleeding isn't controlled) and was given blood transfusions multiple times, my levels had dropped as low as 6! Finally I relented for a surgery after struggling with pain, anemia, fatigue and bleeding for 5 YEARS! I have been the happiest since, with my energy back and am no more anemic for the first time in life and my blood levels are in the range of 12-14 without taking iron pills! My request to all women is, if you are consistently having severe symptoms, don't take health into your own hands or even surrender it to naturopaths. Just go to the traditional doctors! You'll be glad you did. Mainstream medicine and doctors saved my life! Please be smart to know when to stop trying natural remedies and when to trust the medical industry. This site is a great resource otherwise!

I just had my cervical fibroid removed a week ago, and I felt so much better after my procedure. I am very active woman and eat healthy everyday, my question to my Doctor is how did I get it, and she told me mostly women who only have one child is very common, it's a tissue that is growing. So please fellow women if you feel anything do not hesitate to visit your Doctor.

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.

Thanks, Susan

Fibroids are caused by estrogen dominance. Meaning there is too much estrogen in the system. What can cause this imbalance is the food and products you consume daily. There are chemicals, added hormones and antibiotics in dairy, processed foods, meat, beauty products, etc. It's not caused by a fungus.

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

Replied by Mama To Many

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!

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?

Replied by Mmsg
Somewhere, Europe

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.

Replied by Lisa
Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa

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

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.

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.

Replied by Lisa
Dallas, Tx, Usa

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.
