Apple Cider Vinegar Folk Cure for Fibroids
Holistic Treatment Ingredients
- Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 Teaspoon
- Filtered Water - 8 to 10 Ounces
A daily apple cider vinegar (ACV) tonic can reduce fibroid symptoms and perhaps the tumors themselves. Mix one teaspoon of ACV in a large glass of water (natural sweetener to taste, optionally) and drink. Increase the amount of ACV to 1-2 tablespoons per glass as your body tolerates it.
[YEA] 04/27/2009: Candy from Nashville, TN: "I can truly say that when taking 2tbs. of ACV and a squeeze of lemon juice, it cured my fibroid and I lost weight. I went to the doctor and had the Mirena (IUD) placed in to control the heavy bleeding. During my 6weeks checkup the IUD apprently came out. I was sent to have an ultrasound done and the fibroid had degenrated. I also lost 22pounds in 6weeks. My doctor wanted to removed my uterus, but I prayed about it said no to the surgery. Thank God for ACV!!!!"Replies

[YEA] 01/25/2009: Marina from Cape Towm, South Africa: "I live in South Africa and have a friend who had been suffering with seven painful uterine fibroids for four months. Unfortunately, she couldn't afford health insurance, and in the Township where she lives, the hospital facilities are not exactly confidence inspiring. As result, she was afraid to go there for a much needed operation.
In desperation, she came to stay with me. She was at her wits end and almost suicidal from the never ending pain. I took her to my local doctor. After examining her he announced he could do nothing further, except prescribe pain killers and give her a letter of introduction to a much better free hospital. That hospital scheduled an appoint for a consultation some three months later. She was sleeping most of the day, unable to eat without vomiting afterwards. Could not bend over, nor have a proper bowel movement.
Even after the hospital consultation, she'd probably have to wait six months to year to actually have the op, as fibroids are not regarded as priority cases. This made her even more depressed and tearful. I started juicing for her; fresh fruit and veggie juices in place of meals. She got somewhat better and the pain was less, but she was still in very bad shape and zonked out from the pain killers and stress. Finally I gave her apple cider vinegar. One tablespoon in a little water, three times a day. Within two days she was totally free of pain. She had good bowel movements and regained ALL of her previous strength, energy and vitality within a week.
That was two months back. Since then she has telephoned me to say she feels terrific and thinks the fibroids are gone. She will not be going for that operation now! ACV IS A MIRACLE. (I understand it also works just as well for period pains.)"Replies

EC: Per the feedback below: Drinking "One tablespoon in a little water, three times a day."
[YEA] 11/05/2008: Judy from Cincinnati, Ohio: "I have to say I was a total skeptic when I was reading about ACV & how it helps with menstrual problems. I suffered from fibroids & had 5 pounds of them removed last year. I also had been having a cycle about every 2 weeks which was driving me crazy that I thought having the fibroids removed would have cured. I tried ACV during the beginning of my last cycle & am very happy to report that it gave me a regular cycle of 28 days!!!! It has been over 2 yrs since I had a regular cycle of 28 days & this was done without the aid of birth control pill ~ YEAH!!!! Also, when I went back to the surgeon who removed my fibroids last year, he was surprised to find only 1 small growth of a fibroid. He said that he thought for sure that he would be going back inside of me again to remove more fibroids because typically they grow back after a year. I was so very happy about this :)"
[YEA] 08/16/2008: Tijuana from Chicago, Illinois: "I just want everyone out there to know that I suffer from fibroids (the heavy cycle, anemia...). On August 12, 2008 I began using apple cider vinegar after visiting the site. Now almost a week ago whenever I would bend over it would feel as if I had a cramp right above my stomach. As of today August 16, 2008) I cleaned my whole house-bending and stretching. I didn't feel a thing! I hope that these pesky fibroids are beginning to shrink. Thank you so much for the useful site info."Replies
05/03/2009: Eva from Sydney, Australia replies: "Hi, Can you tell me if you only used ACV or added anything else like lemon or baking soda. If you used ACV only how many times did you take per day and in what quantity. I am booked in for an operation in June for fibroids and would like to try it out. I dont want to lose my uterus as I dont have any kids yet."
[YEA] 06/03/2009: dawndaisy from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "I have been taking 2-3 TBSP of ACV in water with either 1 TBSP agave or 1 TBSP grade B maple syrup mixed with 20-30 oz of water and ice. I drink this all day. Since I was 16 I've bled mid cycle and self diagnosed myself with fibroids (no insurance). I've been with this regimine for over a year and all the bleeding midcycle has stopped and my periods are 5 days long, whereas before they were 7-9 days. I also take 1 TBSP black strap molasses everyday in yogurt, smoothie or raw milk. I credit these two things to regulating my period and am now working on getting pregnant!"
[YEA] 04/30/2008: Barb from Tucson, Arizona: "I used to use apple cider vinegar years ago - never had fibroid pain. Currently I have terrible pain caused by fibroids. Thank you for opening my eyes to the awesome healing power of ACV. As a pharmaceutical sales representative I can admit the side effects from most drugs are not worth it. Natural remedies are truly the way to go - I should switch to the other side - we need more naturopathic sales reps in our country! I will report my progress w/ACV & grape seed extract soon. Thanks!"
[YEA] 08/23/2007: Tara from saskatoon, saskatchewan: "I have not taken anyting yet. I am scheduled for urinary artery embolizatoin next week I have a fibroid on my uterus that is 8" and I just read this website today as a lady I met today told me about apple cider vinegar she took for her fibroids 15 years ago and they are gone! I did not beleive her. I am thinking of reschuling my surgery and giving this a try. Also I do not know where to buy the molasses?"Replies
01/06/2009: Jennifer from Mount Vernon, WA replies: "Does anyone know if they make ACV in a pill form? I am sure it would be missing something, but it would be better than not taking it at all!Thanks"
EC: Yes, acv in pill form is available online and at health food stores. However, it's not nearly as effective as drinking acv!
Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
10/25/2011: Vivianne from San Diego, Ca: "I have a question. I have started taking ACV for my fibroids. I read here that it should be mixed w/ BS. But vinegar and baking soda= Sodium acetat (salt) co2 water.
Are u sure we should mix ACV w/ BS? Is it ok to take it on its own w/ water? Also I have low bone density. How can I address that? Is calcium bad for fibroids? Is coffee bad? I love coffee.
Thank u all . I love u guys. :)"
04/13/2011: Chayah from Bronx, New York: "Greetings everyone, Read all the wonderful testimonies and support the fact that ACV and BS ease the pain.

10/23/2011: Karin from Austin, Tx replies: "To Janice from Apex: Never drink from aluminum containers or use aluminum cooking pots. There is evidence aluminum is linked to Alzheimer's disease.
Some plastics have also proven to release toxins into the liquids they contain. Glass is your best option."
[QUESTION] 07/03/2010: Janice from Apex, Nc: "Hi, I have a question for Ted. I have just the last couple of weeks begun taking 1/2 tsp baking soda w/ 2 Tablespoons of ACV in 8 oz of water three times per day to try and reduce or rid myself of fibroids. While at home, I use a glass container to drink from. But at my office, I use an aluminum water bottle, as I was concerned with using plastic because of BPA. However, now I'm concerned with whether either the baking soda or the ACV will cause me to consume aluminum from my water bottle at work. Can you please address the issue of whether either plastic or aluminum are safe with this remedy, or whether it is always best to use glass containers. I've read many posts on your site, but I've never seen the issue of the type of container addressed with the use of ACV. Thanks very much for the help. I do find this site to be wonderful and am glad that I found you!"Replies
10/31/2010: Christina from Hillsdale, Mi replies: "Hello,
I've not tried ACV yet, but am going to do so b/c of all the stories about how it's caused fibroids to shrink. I did read, though, about the danger of ACV ruining tooth enamel if sipped throughout the day. A website I went to advised to use a straw to bypass the teeth, always take ACV with plenty of water, three times/day, drink each of the three times within a short period of time, and rinse mouth out with water after drinking."
01/16/2011: Shazi from Ny City, Ny replies: "It is true that it affects the enamel of teeth and ACV should be sipped with a straw instead."
03/14/2010: Diana from Boston, Massachusetts, United States: "I just found this site today. I am so grateful. I have read thru most everyones comments on this topic and wanted to thank everyone for sharing their experience.
My situation is a little different. I have many symptoms and not certain if they are all connected or from several medical problems.
Started some years ago with Thyroid/hashimoto's disease - first illness - taking thyroid hormones since they iradiated it. Next, hair loss - got scalp injections from dematology for this 5% cortizone shots. Long treatments but it worked. Since then I have developed these fibroids and excema. Are all these things connected? Also vision has gotten bad, now wear glasses. Also, Acid Reflux. Never took the script they gave me, but I did switch my diet some what.. after reading here I need to do more!
On the topic of fibroids, I too was diagnosed a couple of years ago and told to be sent into early menopause. I said no. I dont have heavy bleeding like alot of people here are saying, but I have excruciating pain! Feels like razors or boulders going thru my falopian tubes on the left side. Every month. Plus, I get low grade fevers and feel like I have the flu every month. Typical flu symptoms- headache, fever, naseau, vomiting. Litterally bed bound monthly for two weeks with these flu symptoms. I know there is no way I can have the flu every month and went back to the doctors. They paid no attention to my complaints about the flu as of yet. I have had a stomach CT scan and the results where clear, more fibroids - they are in my tubes, in my uterus and on my ovaries. They scheduled an Upper GI and a pelvic ultrasound. I am at my wits end with the pain!! Today thanks to this site I started the 2 tbspn of Apple cider vinegar mixed with 1/4 Tspn baking soda..and will take it twice or three times a day.
I have gained 40 lbs in the past year, yes, all tummy. Thinking that maybe its all from fribroids? Or alot of it anyway. Two years ago I didnt have uterine fibroids. Im hoping it helps and will let you know as things progress. Thanks to everyone for your openness and willing to share your experiences."Replies
03/14/2010: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Diana from Boston,
Type "potassium iodide" in search window and click on go or search. When references appear pull up one from Tahoma Clinic. I suggest you print this one out for future reference because SSKI is useful for much more than fibroids. This article is written by alternative doctor Jonathan Wright and is very useful and everything I have used SSKI for has been as he said in this article. One other thing he didn't mention is that 2 drops per day helps keep our stomach producing HCl acid for digesting our food."
03/18/2010: Diana from Boston, Ma replies: "To Joyce from Joelton
I found the article you spoke of: Tohoma Clinic Dr Wright- here is the link for the future, I had to google for it because all that came up from this site when I searched were your posts telling people to look it up.. here is the link for others for future reference- you should just post the link instead: http://www.tahomaclinic.com/iodide.shtml
So I have some questions about the use of SSKI or Potasium Iodide : First, I am hypothyroid and spoke with my doctor just today and she said to avoid Iodine. So I am reluctant to take this product.
Second, I also had my Pelvic Ultrasound today and they found 2 Fibroids in the uterus just slightly larger than golf balls. One on each side.
With this help with my fribroids? Did not see that mentioned on the site. Also, I am type A blood, noticed that people with Type A blood are not suppose to take Apple cider Vinegar. Although at this point its either surgery or the ACV or some other remedy.
I did notice and found it interesting that the SSKI is also used to treat people that have been affective by Nuclear Fallout. I was in the service and I was the Nuclear Biological and Chemical Weapons Officer and was exposed to radiation and Perchlorate sulfates alot (dry cleaning fluids) we used them to clean parts of things.. weapons, helicopter parts etc.) I remember having my arm - pit deep in barrels of the stuff on many occassions. As well as a nuclear densomitor which I had to use quite often. Holding it by the spoke that you put in the soil. Was not aware at the time it emmited large amounts of radiation.
Do you think these things could have caused all my ILLS? Hypothyroidism, Copd, asthma, fibroids, diverticulosis and diverticulitis? Seems like all these things are listed on the tahoma site. If I could find a common cause then maybe I could find a common cure? Could use your input.
Thank you for posting to me - I appreciate your feedback and assistance from everyone."
03/18/2010: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Diana from Boston,
First a question or two. Is your thyroid just sluggish and still functioning or totally wiped out? If it is still functioning then it needs some iodine to function properly, so why did your doctor tell you to avoid it? Hopefully you also picked up on the use of SSKI to liquify secretions in the respiratory tract so you can get them out, which means that it should help with asthma and COPD. Another thing to consider if it is just sluggish is that a deficiency of B complex vitamins causes a sluggish thyroid, so I suggest that you get a good stress tab (B complex with vitamins C & E) and take 1 at mealtime and bedtime although the container will tell you to take 1 a day.
Another question, while you were up to armpit in the goop in the service, were you taking SSKI or anything to protect your thyroid from radiation? If not, it is unlikely that the radiation isn't part of the cause of your problems.
I have also read that those with asthma are low on selenium. Wild cherry bark tea is supposed to be good for asthma. You might also want to read Bill's inhalation method of H202 for the asthma and COPD. I am all for trying what is likely to help, and not likely to harm with unwanted side effects. I also recall reading in EC about someone curing their COPD with a home remedy which included mullein, so you might want to look this up. Mullein is a very easy to identify wild plant, but since it mentioned using the seed pods, you won't likely find seed pods until this coming fall. Some herbal shops might sell them though.
Could you share your source for the recommendation that people with type A blood should not take ACV? I think I am type A and I have been taking ACV/honey for a long time (at least 40-50 years) and I am still alive and kicking.
I believe that if you reread Dr. Wright's article on SSKI, you will find that he mentions cystic breast disease. But you would have to follow what your thyroid is doing because you would be taking it for several months and it can suppress the thyroid. I figure that if it gets rid of fibroids in the breast, it should also get rid of fibroids in the uterus or elsewhere.
My breasts were nothing much but lumps for years. I can't say for sure that vitamin E is what got rid of them, but vitamin E is what I had added to my daily vitamins, and several months later I was surprised to find that all my lumps were gone and replaced with normal breast tissue, so if you aren't taking vitamin E, start taking at least 400 IU/day and see what happens.
To find out how much perchlorate sulfates might have done to you, just type it into a search window and if you find that it has been a big part of your problem, print it out and take it with you to visit the VA Hospital doctors and put in a claim for the damage done to your health by the exposure. Hope you find some of this useful and hope your health improves. "

[NAY] 01/20/2010: Tricia from Newcastle: "Acv and Baking soda for fibroids
I read about people on your site using ACV and Baking soda for excessive bleeding associated with fibroids. I had excessive bleeding for three months and found out I had 2 large fibroids in my uterus. I tried your formula and the bleeding persisted. The second week I had forgotten to use the acv/baking soda and by the end of the day my bleeding had slowed us, alot! The next day I used the formula again and once again started bleeding, the next day and there on I stopped using the formula and the bleeding slowed up considerably. So I immediately stopped using the acv/baking soda. It may help alot of people but not in my case. But I felt it was worth a try."
[YEA] 11/20/2009: Dee from Woodstock, Ga: "Hello, to tell you a little history of my health issue. Over 3 years ago I experienced my menstrual cycle lasting longer and longer and I checked with a couple Ob-Gyn's who really did not listen to me. While moving to another state, the first visit to a general practitioner she asked me have you had an ultra-sound done. I went to get an ultra sound done and they found a cyst on my ovary and I had fibroids. Great.... well at least I know what it was that was causing this additional bleeding. I went to see an Ob'Gyn and she told me to go on the pill to reduce the cyst that started to work but the bleeding from the fibroids got worst to the point I bled for 3 months straight without stopping and the doctor did not seem concerned or knew what was going on. I was desparate and tried looking for home remedies and found this website. Never heard of apple cider vinegar until I found this site and I tried Ted's remedy. That is ACV with baking soda and the bleeding ceased in less that one day. I take six to eight ounces of water with two tablespoon of ACV organic and quarter teaspoon of baking soda twice a day and it works for me. Thank you all for posting your experiences on this website.It is greatly helped me. I have my second opinion coming up and will give an update if the cyst and fibroids have shrunk. I will also try the blackstrap molasses for my anemia. God Bless You!"Replies

It has since come back and my periods are unbearable. I also have severe break-thru bleeding. My Dr. has put me on a higher dose of Birth control to control the bleeding. It has slowed down, but I don't like the side effects of the BC. I have been reading many posts of the ACV and Baking Soda.
I would like to know how long do you use this remedy. Is it everyday? And should I still take the birth control with this remedy? I am so so so desperate for help! My next step is a hysterectomy and I am not ready for that. I am only 31 years old. Please Help me!!
Thanks in advance!
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 05/19/2009: Kim from Santa Monica, Ca : "I am writing in because for the last 6 months I had been suffering from an issue with Fibroids. I had non stop bleeding sometimes extremely heavy periods to the point were my blood count level was around 7.2 . at one point I was given a blood transfusion because of the amount of blood loss. I went to see my Dr. who did a biopsy and ultrasound and had determined that I was suffering from Fibroids and this was the reason for the continuous bleeding.
My Dr. gave me two options, to have an IUD inserted with no guarantees that this would work and may fall out or a Hysterectomy. I was also taking birth control pills to try to stop the bleeding as well with no results. I read the recommendations for ACV and Baking Soda for Fibroids and I decided to try it. The first couple of days I was not feeling too well, I felt really weak and had no energy, however , I took it for about 1 week and the bleeding has stopped. I now have another appointment to see my Dr , for another exam to see if the Fibroid is still there. I want to thank Ted for the recommendation and say I feel great! thanks again"
