Hi, I used the BSM for Fibroids before and had found them helpful and felt more energy overall also but they are nasty tasting to me and I got lazy and stopped. But my periods had gotten to the point of almost immobilizing me for 3 or 4 days and having to change clothes because of the sudden gushes. It seemed as if they lasted forever and I would be getting dizzy and lightheaded by the end and I was spotting almost all the time also. So I was reading on here and decided to get the BSM back out and start them again and also add ACV this time. I have been having 2 spoonfuls of BSM of the morning full strength (UGH) and then having a tablespoon of ACV in a 1/4 cup of tomato juice for lunch and supper. I have been at this for 2 weeks and then got my period. I still had pain but only lasted 1 day and could control with advil. Only had to change pads 2 times a day and I didn't bleed through or even come close to overflowing. I am so happy. Hopefully, next month will be even better since I will have been at this longer and maybe it will be doing something with the fibroids. I had been having the severe cramps and gushing for over a year straight so to see this change now I have to attribute it to the BSM and ACV. I don't think it was just a difference this time by nature because it has been so severe without change for so long.

Okay, I had a problem with my last post and got cut off so I'm back. The biggest thing about day 6 was that my fibroid on the left seems to have shrunk dramatically! It used to feel like I was carrying a grapefruit around and I could easily feel it just by touching my lower left side. Today is day 7 and my period is down to almost nothing! My period usually last 21-25 days!! My advice to anyone who tries this and her symptoms seem to get worse, that maybe your body NEEDED to purge the toxic mess from itself! Don't give up and keep it up. This stuff is a miracle!

Hello Sandy,
I want to try what you've done to shrink a large fibroid (also the size of a grapefruit). How much ACV did you consume (ratio of ACV to water), how many times/day, and did you mix it with baking soda? Thank you for your response. I look forward to hearing from you. I'm IN PAIN!!!!! (but I don't want surgery). Christina

I just want to THANK ALL THE POSTERS on this board. I planned to have my fibroids removed this summer as I have had enough of taking pain medication for many years. For the last couple of years, the pain felt like I was in labor whenever i had my period not to mention the "flooding, clots and bloating stomach". I learned about this site a couple of months ago and started taking the recommended 2tbsp ACV with 1/4 tsp baking soda mixed with 1/2 cup of warm water then followed by 1tsp of BSM then a whole glass of warm water. I took this in the morning and evening. My period in March was much better than when i used to have my period before I had fibroids. It was "normal", no bloating, little clots and I did not even know it came until i went to the bathroom. I used to get pains on my lower back and legs a couple of days before it started. I did not have to take pain medication at all. I waited for my next period before writing my comments and appreciation on this board for validation. The next period felt even better. I lost 8lbs for the last couple of months too. I hope the ACV with baking soda the BSM have shrunk my fibroids. I'll find out after my next OBGYN appointment.

Again THANK YOU everyone for sharing your experience/s and comments..

That's good to know. My biggest fibroid is 11cm and I'm waiting for UFE. I would like to shrink my fibroids as much as possible before the procedure. Can you let me know if your fibroids shrunk after your next OBGYN appointment? Thank you and thanks for sharing your experience.

I can't begin to express my gratitude for having found this website! My story is like many of you. I'm 49 years old and have been suffering for the past several years from periods that lasted 3 weeks with a short break in between, extremely heavy flow and lots of clotting, to the point where my quality of life had really deteriorated. I finally saw a doctor (no insurance) and was diagnosed with multiple fibroids, enlarged uterus, and too much endometrium. I was also very anemic, naturally. The doctor prescribed birth control pills to alleviate some of the bleeding, but said I would not get 100% relief and that my only choice was a hysterectomy. At first, I thought, "surgery, great! It will all be overwith! " But after having a moment to think, I realized major surgery is not something I want. So I consulted the web, and found this wonderful website! I pored over the testimonials for hours and finally came to the decision to try the ACV, BSM and baking soda route. I rushed out to Whole Foods and bought everything I needed. Coincidentally, I started the program on the first day of my period. I am taking 1 tbs ACV, 1/2 tsp baking soda in 8 oz. Water, followed by 1 tbs BSM straight from the spoon ( I don't mind the taste) morning and evening. The first two days were pretty light. Then, the usual much heavier flow began for the next two days. Then, on day 5... All hell broke loose!! I began hemorrhaging at around 11:30 am, passing multiple giant clots about every five minutes for about 4 hours straight! I thought I might have to go to the hospital for a transfusion. It finally subsided, leaving me exhausted and dizzy and wondering what had I done to myself?! By the next morning (day 6) the flow had decreased to moderate, but the strange thing was, my uterus no longer felt full, tight, and heavy AND believe it or not

Hello Everyone!

I've been reading the posts on this site with great interest...so many of us have similar stories! So, I'd like to share mine with you...

I'm a (very young!) 45 year old black woman. Up until last year I had normal periods, heavy flow & cramps on the 1st day, gradually tailing off and coming to an end on day 4. However, last year I was diagnosed with one submucous fibroid (which was the size of a 3 1/2 month foetus) and several small intramural fibroids. My periods went up to 8 days (heavy for at least 5 days and very bad cramps for the first 2-3 days). I was getting through a 12-pack of pads per day for Days 1-3. Plus, regardless of my exercise regime, my once-flat tummy now resembles a woman who is 3-4 months pregnant. Not fun at all.

I visited 2 gynaecologists who gave varying drastic "suggestions" for treatment, including "microwaving the lining" of my uterus and a hysterectomy: I'm 45 with no kids, so I suppose that's why the male doctor felt these were options for me. I soon set him straight and put a flea in his ear in the process!!

My dear friend Janice sent me the link to this site, and I decided to try the apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses. A few days after my last period, I started with 30 mls ACV (2-3 large tablespoons), 1 tablespoon BSM, the juice of 1/2 a lime, mixed with 150 ml of hot water, twice a day.

Almost immediately, I started getting period cramps. Sometimes quite severe! I used a positive mental attitude to think that the cramps were related to my shrinking fibroids (lol!)

My period started on Saturday 3oth Jan. On the 1st day the flow was lighter than it has been in ages! On the 2nd day the flow was quite heavy and the cramps were awful. I went to a party, got home in the late hours of the morning and was tired all day Sunday, so I don't know if that was a contributing factor. However, in the past I wouldn't have felt comfortable leaving my house, let alone attending an all-night party!

BUT on Monday (Day 3) the flow had reduced to a trickle! Today is Day 4 and I'm only on panty-liners. I won't know if the fibroids have actually shrunk until my next check-up (next month), but I'm just glad it seems to have had a positive effect on my period!

This stuff has worked for me in a short space of time. My stomach has gone down a LITTLE. I just wish I'd known about this remedy before. I shall keep taking it and will let you know if the fibroids have shrunk.

Hope it works for everyone as well as it worked for me!

Peace & Blessings

Hi, I have been reading this site for most of my day and this particular post topic is one I can't talk about with anyone because I dnt have any friends due to my fibroids. And I have no insurance so I cnt talk to a doctor.

I first got my period at 17 and it came once or twice a year since then. Lasting from 10 days to 2 months. 2009 it came in August and lasted 1 month. No pain. Just heavy bleeding. It came again in April. 2010 and didn't go away till June. Luckily before my bday. I am so lucky I should say that I am a housewife now at 26. May 29th the bleeding and pain was unbearable so I took a hottttt bath to calm me dwn. I woke up in the er they sent me home and said it was just irregular bleeding. I took the pain killers they prescribed. I needed them. Everything went away June 15. Now its been a month since I've been bleeding very heavily. And minor pain at night. I go through 8 of the largerst overnight pads a day. Very big blood clots. I am going to try the ACV recipe :-)

I really hope and pray it works because I am afraid to travel far from my house. My boyfriend is suffering. I'm suffering. And I want to have a baby soooo bad I'm the only one of 4 sisters and 3 neices that doesn't have a baby. I'm falling behind. My 23 yr old neice is expecting her 2nd one next month. If u think that I am way past the ACV and I should cough it up and get them removed. But I dnt know if that's going to help me. SUGGESTIONS and COMMENTS please.....

Several people have said Blackstrap molasses will dissolve fibroids.

This is just a stop gap, but try some Black Strap Molasses. Buy the unsulphured kind. It costs about $5 or $6 for 16 fl oz. Go to a natural health food store or Whole Foods. Try and get organic if possible. Take a full teaspoon to start. Some people love it and others not so much. I am from the latter and have found the easiest way -after lots of experimenting - was to have a warm cup of tea or just warm water (not hot) and the minute I pop the BSM in my mouth to take a drink of the warm liquid, it just dilutes the stuff immediately and there is no aftertaste. Good luck and blessings

Hi Ted, Hi EC,

Could you please let me know if it is ok to mix ACV, BSM and baking soda all togather and drink the mixture first thing in the morning and get the benefits of all three?

I have mixed ACV and BSM together. If you buy the organic, unfiltered ACV there is a recipe on the bottle. It makes the taste a bit more bareable. I have not mixed in the baking soda. Since that is the ingredient that balances the PH I will try it.

ACV & Black Strap Molasses for Fibroids

I discovered last year that I had a fibroid a little smaller then a golf ball, which explained the heavy bleeding and large clots. I tried an herbal remedy for about 4 months, which seemed to be help up until last month. I an alternative that I could try, since it seemed that the pills I were taking were no longer helpful, and found this site. I read the other comments, and figured that I had nothing to lose. So I ran to Wholefoods and got the ACV(undistilled)and the Molasses and started immediately. I tried 2 tablespoons of ACV, and 1 of the Molasses and a little warm water(about quarter cup). At first I had to get past the taste, but found that it was more like drinking prune juice...really not that bad. I figured that I would do it twice a day, In the morning and before dinner. Well I have to report that my period this month was good! Cramps weren't an issue, barely any clots and only one day of somewhat heavy flow and I didn't have to run to the bathroom to change...I was pleasantly surprised. I'm going to continue this and see if it continues. Now if anyone has a remedy to get rid of the spotting before and after the normal flow, I'm all ears!!!

To relieve spotting, use Shepherd's Purse in capsule form for immediate effect (also available as a tea). Vitex agnus castus (also known as Chasteberry) capsules taken daily will also regulate your period and help to stop break-through bleeding.

I'm on Depo. I want to get off it. I've gained weight since being on it. I want to go more natural. I found this site and have been reading with much interest. I bought some ACV and BSM. I've started taking it. I go see my OBGYN next month. Hopefully I'll be able to get off the Depo and use ACV and BSM to shrink the fibroids.

Have any fibroids shrunk with ACV and Black molasses?

I have been using 1 tb of acv and 1 tb of black unsulphured molasses for the past 3 weeks after I was diagnosed with large fibroids. While I did not have too much pain initially, the remedy helped ease the pain that started almost immediately after I was diagnosed. Also, my period was much lighter and much less clotted than in prior months.I am scheduled for surgery in March and am wondering if for anyone at all the fibroids have shrunk???

I too have fibroids and BSM is truly a miracle. I have all the symptons of parasites. I have tried ACV and get blood in my stool almost immediately. Do I continue taking ACV and the bleeding will stop or should I be doing something else to kill off the parasites??

Just two days ago I started taking apple cider vinegar (ACV -> organic, raw, unfiltered, with "the mother") and black strap molasses (BSM -> unsulphured). I have been taking 1 tablespoon of each in warm (not boiling) water, followed by a glass of cool water three times per day to reduce excessive bleeding from some recently discovered fibroids.

Some background on me...

I had an emergency myomectomy performed seven years ago for a plum-sized fibroid that caused me to hemorrhage after giving birth. In 2005, scans showed that I was still fibroid free, and I thought all was well until earlier this month. My cycle started Sept. 1st, and it's STILL going. I went to the emergency room when the clots were so large that they scared me (about half the size of the palm of my hand). The ultrasounds indicated I had about three fibroids that are sub-mucosal, which resulted in the excessive bleeding. My doctor wants to perform hysteroscopy or another myomectomy to remove the fibroids.

I was prescribed Provera (10 days) to stop the bleeding, but it didn't work. (I was told that the Provera would stop the bleeding, but that I shouldn't be alarmed if my cycle resumes after it ends, since Provera can be used to start periods in some women.) The excessive bleeding and clots NEVER stopped. My doctor wants to prescribe something stronger so that the bleeding will stop and surgery can be scheduled, but I'm concerned that I'll end up in a fibroid removal rotation every few years when they keep growing.

My husband and I found this site just 2 days ago, and my husband picked up the ACV and BSM that afternoon. My bleeding was still just as heavy the first night after I began taking these products. As usual, I was up every 2 hours to use the bathroom and pass the clots. But 24 hours after I started, the bleeding was MUCH lighter, and I actually had some of my old energy back. My husband really noticed the difference, too. Instead of changing a large, overnight sanitary pad every 1.5 to 2 hrs, I was able to wear a much thinner liner. Yesterday and this morning were the first times I had used the bathroom without seeing a sea of red. I only saw urine in the toilet! (Apologies for being so graphic, but I thought these details might be helpful to someone else going through this.) Last night was the first time I've been able to sleep for more than two hours at a time! I didn't have all of the cramping and clotting. I also didn't feel my heart racing while I was lying down trying to sleep, which I've learned can be a sign of anemia.

This is my third day, and I'm still bleeding, but it is SO much lighter and I'm not passing huge clots. I did have a slight headache yesterday afternoon, and I have a slight one right now. Others have commented that this can occur because the ACV is removing the toxins from the body. In addition to the ACV and BSM, my husband picked up lots of organic fruits and veggies, so I've been eating those, too. I've always been slim, so I'm hoping that all of these healthy foods aren't going to cause me to lose any weight. If anyone has some ideas on ways to add some healthy bulk to this program, then I would appreciate it. I've always eaten a fair number of veggies and fruits, but I have a penchant for shellfish, a good steak, and homemade desserts, so I want to replace those calories with healthier bulk.

I have a consultation scheduled with another physician next week to determine whether I can safely adopt a wait-and-see approach. My goal is to continue the ACV and BSM over the next several months and monitor the size and number of fibroids. I will post updates to inform everyone of my progress. Many sincere thanks to everyone for posting your experiences on this site. Wishes for good health to all!

Last Year I was diagnosed and Prepped for Surgery due to a Fibroid and massive Bleeding every other week in a month. Well I would do anything to avoid Surgery and thought there has got to be a Natural Solution to dissolving it so I started looking for it on the Internet and found that a certain ACV with the Mother In it would dissolve the fibroid and the Unsulphured Black Strap Molasses would help with the Bleeding so I began taking both 2 Tablespoons each in a cup of Warm Not Hot Water. This is a Most Disgusting Drink and I had to figure out a different way to take. So I decided to just take the ACV straight off the Spoon. The ACV is very hard to handle at first straight but now after taking it, okay I forced myself to do it and kept thinking Surgery VS. Natural and well after doing this for 3 weeks without Fail, 2 Tbsps once a day there has been a considerable change in my health.

I noticed it in the first week but thought it was just Mind over matter but it really has done something. I have noticed the swelling has gone done, the pains I had have diminished and I feel less tired, drained. I also have no more Indigestion since taking the ACV. I had stopped taking the Blackstrap Molaasses for reasons of just Forgetfulness, so I have begun to take that now, last night since reading that it helps with Grey Hair which I have about 50 percent of it and since the Fibroid Diagnosis I noticed it was coming in at a drastic rate. I took it straight off the spoon, 2Tablespoons and I like it but then it reminds me of a Certain Brand Name All Natural Black Licorice and I Love that brand of Black Licorice. Anyhow I was reading that some say it the Molasses has Copper which is needed to possibly reverse grey Hair but then theres arguments of there is none in it at all considering the Label doesn't show it.

So I went to my Local Natural Market and asked the Lady there if there was any copper and if so how much percentage wise and would it work to reverse greying and if so How Much of it would a person need to take. The Lady went upstairs checked her book,the Blackstrap has 12 percent of Copper and you have to be careful of taking copper because it can become dangerous,so she said with me taking 2 Tbsp of it a day thats about 24 percent and it was an okay level. Now thing is she said that Trace Minerals is a Much better Solution to reversing Grey Hair, not so much the Molasses, it would take a Much longer if possible to reverse any grey. But getting Trace Minerals will bring back the Natural Hair Color and remove grey. So of course ee never got to finish the conversation on the trace Minerals as the Place was buzzing with People and she was the only one there working it but I will be seeing her soon to find out more of this Trace Minerals Concoction she is referring to as I do Not have the time or desire to color my Hair anymore and well theres just too much Grey anymore so it was getting very Costly.

Much Luck and Successs to Everyone. I will get back to you as soon as I find out more. Please be patient.

I started drinking baking soda with my Apple Cider Vinegar and honey to help with my fibroids around a month ago. I recently went to the doctor only because my sudden headaches and dizzy spells wouldnt go away. I was diagnosed with ANEMIA. I am wondering if the baking soda added to my mix is the problem.

Well, I have to say that I was not a FULL believer. I suffer from fibroids and I was just sick and tired of talking to doctors who give me my "only" options.. which all included surgery and menopause. I am 42. I do not have children and it has been the bane of my existence. So, after visiting the doctor, a specialist, who advertised fibroid assistance. I left the office disgusted! Once again: "you can have surgery or we can put you into menopause. We don't do anything else here. But, we will write a prescription for an MRI so that we can judge the size of your fibroids." I was furious! Not only did I waste a day off from work, and my $30 co-pay, after traveling 2 hours to get to the "specialist", I wasted my time? So, as soon as I came home I started reserching holistic approaches. I found blog after blog where women were claiming the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) as some type of cureall elixirs! At this point what did I have to lose? So, I ran out to the healthfood store on the other side of town and I purchased Organic ACV and Organic unsulphured BSM as recommended on the sites. That was 14 Jul 09.

So, my situation: Fibroids! HEAVY HEAVY menstrual cycles with lots of clotting! So, heavy that my 2 hour commute to work had become a true burden, because of the fears that I would not be able to make it to a bathroom in time to change or clean up. I could tell some pretty horrific stories about that too. And the cramps!!! YIKES!!! The first time I experienced them I was in my 30s. This was all a shock to me. I had never known so much pain and discomfort before. EVER!!!

So, again, here I am on 1 Aug 09, 15 days after taking 1 tbsp of ACV and 1 tbsp of BSM every day once a day and I cannot believe that my cycle has caught me by surprise. I mean NO CRAMPS!!! Minimal.. and I mean MINIMAL discomfort. I mean, I have not taken ANY painkillers yet and today is the first day. Usually, I would have started 3 days ago.

Now, I will say two things, some sites recommend mixing the BSM and ACV in water! Personally, I think that is a terrible idea.. I tried it in a 16.9oz bottle of water...it only prolongs the terrible taste of the ACV.. and ACV and BSM do not mix! lol. Definitely not together. But, the BSM was easier, I take 1 tbsp of ACV and then, add the BSM to my morning cereal, or yogurt or morning smoothie. I find more interesting ways to enjoy the BSM. I am still working on the ACV.

So, I will keep everyone posted on what else happens for the next two weeks.

By the way I am also a new vegetarian. I heard that products of hormone treated animals is not good for fibroids. It only "feeds" the fibroids. So, I figured I would try it for a year. So, I eat seafood, and dairy products. I just look for dairy products of "clean" animals.

Wish me continued luck!

ok... I said I would keep everyone updated. I AM A TRUE BELIEVER. Here it is 2 months after taking my first swallow of BSM and ACV and 1)My cycle showed up WITHOUT ANY CRAMPS and 2)I am having a VERY NORMAL one.

This is absolutely incredible! I have not had a normal cycle in over 10 years. I am hoping that this is the answer. Just for additional information. I do not consume anything with Aspartame nor do I consume and dairy products where the animals are given Hormones or Antibiotics. Not sure how much this has to do with the change, but, I think I am going to continue my tbsp or 2 of ACV and tbsp or 2 of BSM. And by the way, I oculd not tolerate either in water. It tasted terrible, but, I do mix 1:1 of ACV:BSM and use it as a salad dressing. It really tastes pretty good.

I have noticed that healing or the lack of it has to do with the mind and the body. Stress is the biggest detrimental obstacle to healing. First deal with the stress. Second is nutritional deficiency and third is parasites. Fourth is toxins and etc. However, if you wish to disregard this, then for fibroids, try nattokinase with turmeric and black pepper. The nattokinase is a potent fibrinolytic, dissolves the fibers which constitute the fibroids and the turmeric lessens the inflammation. The black pepper makes everything extra bioavailable.

I have been using the BSM and ACV baking soda remedy for about 6 weeks.Out of that 6 weeks i have been bleeding for 4, not always heavy but heavy in the last week .My stomach is not as hard and bloated as before, my cramps are less frequent and not as painful. I could feel the fibroid and it does seem smaller but I have very little energy and am so tired of the bleeding I am thinking could surgery be so bad....in spite of watching Suzuki's documentary called Sex,Lies, and Hysterectomies!

since it has been 10 years since i first noticed my fibroid I know it may take a long time so I am trying to be patient. Next I will add the mineral packs to my regime and see how that goes.Maybe i have had the fibroids too long!

I started using ACV just because I read that it was good for you. I had no idea it helped your cycle or fibroids. I discovered that on my own before I found this website. It should be organic with the "mother of vinegar" in it. This is the ugly looking stuff with little strings floating around in it. Otherwise, it serves no purpose other that salad dressing. My cycles were less painful. However, once I stopped drinking it, the pain returned. So, I am back on it and adding molasses this time. For people who say it's not working, make sure you are using the correct form. I do not know the size of the fibroid the Dr says I have but I know ACV has helped me.

I have been using APV and BSM for about 8 days to trat what I believe are large fibroids. I also have pain in my upper right abdominal quadrant that seems to be gas because i get relief from gas relieving meds.

Anyway, my skin feels great but I still feel not so great. Rashs, itching etc. leaves me to think I have yeast issues as well. Long story short I mistrust conventional medicine and pretty much self diagnose when possible. New symptom to report is white froth and what looks kind of like cream in my urine.

i am 49 yrs old and have peri menopause, last period lasted 3 weeks with heavy bleeding for at least a week. My symptoms are keeping me home bound and usually experiencing some varying form of pain and discomfort. I hope and pray i can improve my health somewhat with the natural tratments on this site. I took 2-3 tblsp.each of ACV and BSM , yesterday i added 1/4 tsp.baking soda and started doubling my ACV treatment, once in the morning, once in the evening. Let you know if anything seems to be working.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone on this amazing website for all the information. I also was diagnosed with a fibroid, and a polyp in my uterus. I had really heavy bleeding and gigantic clots that were freaking me out. My doctor removed two cervical polyps, but said I would need surgery to remove the one in my uterus.

I found this site and started taking ACV, 2 T in 8 oz. Water, at least twice per day. I haven't tried the BSM yet, but I'll go get some. So far, the ACV is really helping. I will go in for another ultrasound in a month or two to see if the fibroid is really shrinking. She said I had to have surgery to remove the fibroid but I would rather not do that if it's possible to shrink it using these methods.

Thank you so much to everyone for sharing your stories.

If anyone needs a good iron supplement, by far the best I have found is Rainbow Light Complete Iron System. I have taken iron for years because I've always had heavy periods. This one by Rainbow Light is fantastic. It absorbs really well and does not irritate the stomach at all, at least with me. I have tried a lot of iron supplements and this one is fantastic. Some Whole Foods stores carry it, some do not, but they will special order it for you. I get mine at an independently owned health food store.

Thanks again for all the info about ACV, BSM, and also Natto.

I am a 40 yr old woman recently diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids and blocked fallopian tubes. I am curious to learn more about the use of BSM/ACV. I've read the reviews posted on this site but remain unclear about how to ingest the BSM/ACV. I am currently adding 2 tablespoons of BSM and 2 tablespoons of ACV in 8 oz warm water twice daily. Is this adequate or should I be ingesting these first and following with water? Any suggestions? Thank you.

I have been diagnosed with the 5 inch fibroids and blocked fallopian tubes too. I am very depressed about. I am scheduled to go back to the Dr. on December 22. The Dr. want to a partial Hysterectomy. I don't want to have it done. I have not been able to have any children. My husband and I. I have started taken the ACV this week. I feel better and I am not in as much pain. One my friends told me to take evening primrose oil from the health food store. I am praying the Fibriods will go away without having the surgery.

Gee, Praying's good but do something actively as well about it. Like take charge of your health. Start juicing, check your diet, get maca (read about it in my past posts or research it online). ACV and Evening Primrose oil are not going to cut the mustard in this situation. Doing something actively to help yourself will alleviate depression too. Don't just accept the dr.'s diagnosis as final and let them cut part of you out because then you absolutely won't have children or have the chance. First, try alternative healing before you go that route. Lisa

Lisa, I have a concern with your response to Gee,

Your post seems very forceful and does not seem to leave a lot of room for Gee to make her own opinion. How do you know that ACV and evening primose will not work? And I don't really think you need to point out that this woman would never have children if she has surgery. I am sure she has already thought of that and there are alternatives such as harvesting her eggs and using a surrogate or adoption. Not the best alternatives but alternatives nonetheless.

I think what concerns me most is that you come across as an expert and my concern would be that Gee may take some or all of it to heart and perhaps do herself some harm by not consulting a naturopath or her doctor.

Perhaps in the future you could word your posts in a more suggestive less preachy format. People in this community have good input but I understand that we all get excited now and again to help others and perhaps come across a little overzealous.

Hi Gee, I want to apologize if I sounded like I was being self-righteous or preachy to you. I wanted to just reassure you that there are many alternative routes and not to get down believing that the doctors have all the answers. No, I am no expert, but I have spent a lot of hours and years studying alternatives in many aspects from birthing, schooling, natural remedies, herbal and homeopathic remedies so, I figure if I can help someone else out there with what I have learned, I will do that. Knowledge is a powerful tool.

And yes, there are alternatives to having your own children such as adopting or surrogate mothers, etc., but that was not what I got from your post. Sorry if I misread what you were sad about. In naming some actions you could take, I was not trying to be forceful but just giving you a few suggestions you could pursue.

I also have seen my acupuncturist turn things around for women who were diagnosed by Western drs. that they would not be able to conceive. Of course, these are all just suggestions. In the end we all have our own right to choice. Peace, Lisa

DON'T be depressed!! DON'T have the hysterectomy surgery, AND I wouldn't go back to that ob/gyn either, myself (up to you though...).

Progesterone cream will sometimes shrink fibroids, and I just read an research report somewhere that indicated that concentrated tomato products, such as tomato powder and tomato paste may be helpful for such things.

I was just reading some of the other postings, especially the one for Gee. Im not a doctor but I do recommend getting 2nd and 3rd opinions especially before undergoing a hysterectomy or partial hysterectomy. These are all very personal decisions that we have to make and that even our closest loved ones cannot make for us. No-one should feel coerced into doing anything. Im very grateful that the ACV and black molasses (1-2x a day) have been working for me for the pain and symptoms. While everyone's body is different, and while I hope the remedy works in shrinking the fibroid, I also should share that I recently learned of laproscopy which is a less invasive way of removing fibroids. This may be in some cases be an alternative method of surgery instead of a hysterectomy for those of us that hope to have children one day. I spoke with my doctor here in NYC who is supposed to be the top doctor for this and feel much more at ease as he was my second opinion and the first doctor was very insensitive and didnt mention this option. While I wish they were, natural remedies are not always an alternative to surgery but they can certainly help relieve a lot of unnecessary pain and help the healing process if one does opt for surgery. Thank you all for posting on this site and for supporting each other.

I am following my mothers "wise women syndrome" (menopause) history and don't want to any more. Period stopped for 9 months, started for 2 weeks, stopped for 7 months and is still continuing after 5 weeks. Clots, heavy flow, embarassing moments the lot. I am of average height, weight and exercise x5 days a week, for at least 1hr 30mins each time, eat wholesome (no processed foods) mainly fruit, vegies and meat.

I wish to cease the blood flow and move onto my "wise women syndrome" sooner. I am unable to take AVC because of my very low blood pressure (I have tried and got incredible dizzy bordering on fainting.

I am considering taking Black Strap Molasses ... any advice on how much, how often and what else is out there that could help. Cheers in advance.

I was done surgery of pituitary macroadenoma 2years ago im now 42 my Dr. tells me I go for ivf if I want a child but my fibroids have to be removed first- the fibriod is 4.7cm and my menses stoped due to the adenoma, Im now on hormone replacement of levothyroxide and pridinson and if I'm given fertility hormones without removing the fibroids they will grow bigger. Do you think I can try ACV, BSM and baking soda to shrink to fibroid to enable ivf possible? What are the complications with my case? Please give your comments it will help my decision I don't have a child but the Dr. told me I can have one through ivf but the problem is the fibroid.

Our bodies need to be alkaline, sick people are usually acidic, buy some PH strips that determine the acidity of our bodies, tear a piece and place in mouth one second, if it is yellow, not good, if it is dark blue, that's good, apple cider vinegar is highly acidic so someone tell me why it is good for us as I use it a lot. Honey good for us? It is acidic, baking soda is highly alkaline, I put 1/2 teaspoon in my drinking water and a couple drops of h202, that is good for us, walnuts will turn the strip dark blue, thats good, when watching TV, munch on english walnuts, that's good, when you get your little roll of PH strips, everytime you eat something, tear off a strip , insert into mouth and if it is yellow , again not good, dark blue, thats good, I love a baked cake, its acidic, not good, but I love them, I tell my wife not to bake those acidic cakes but she does, wonder if she has ulterior (motives)?

I just turned 41 & have started feeling the grips of hormonal changes along with having a history of huge fibroids. I had 5 lbs of fibroids removed last yr in a robotic surgery that went terrifically & preserved my fertility :) I still want to have children & decided to take a natural, active involvement in my health. I have always worked out religiously since I was 15 so I've been in great shape & been able to tolerate the pain of those fibroids. But at age 41 I was finding that I no longer could run on the junk food that I liked to eat & was lacking energy along with not having a normal cycle. I wanted so much to have a normal cycle without the complications of a birth control pill. ACV gave me that :) But I was also dealing with more heart palpitations that I just couldn't control with my diet & vitamin taking. Yesterday, it was really getting in my way of life so I ran out & got the molasses. And I'm so happy to report that it made those nasty heart palpitations go away, gave me energy to go play tennis that evening ( in fact, I was burning the court with my energetic plays) & is helping my chronic constipation. I've gone to the bathroom 3 times since last evening to this morning and that's simply wonderful!!! I urge everyone to try ACV & molasses ~ they are TERRIFIC!!!!

I just left my doctors office, I was suppose to go back to work but I can't after hearing that I have been unable to get pregnant because I have 6 fibroid tumors inside my uterus. 3 of which are 4-6cm each. My doctor wants to schedule me for surgery in 4 weeks. We are waiting 4 weeks because it wants me to take a drug that will place me in a clinical menopause. This will effectively stop the estrogen production in my body hopefully shrinking the tumors so it will be safer to operate.

I want to have another child and according to the doctor surgery is my best option. I am so glad I found this website. I am on my way to Whole Foods to pick up the ACV and BSM and I am prepared to do whatever it takes. I am scheduled for another ultrasound prior to surgery to see the status the fibroids and I will report my progress.

Stay tuned! Thank you all for your support.

Please be careful of that drug that puts you in clinical menapause. If it is lupron. I took the lupron shots for 6 months before having the fibroids removed. They did not shrink the fibroids but they did make my bones frail. Lupron also affected my memory. I never experienced the forgetfullness I have now. Sometimes I just completely draw a blank and cannot remember my thoughts AT ALL. Thanks to the lupron shots. If I had it all to do over again... I would do nothing. My sister also had fibroids. She did not know it. She got pregnant. Because of the fibroids she could not have a vaginal birth. She had a C section. The doctor removed the fibroids after he took the baby out.

I started using Plantation brand Black Strap molassas, and _____ Apple Cidar Vinegar, a year ago, as I was diagnosed with a 3cm fibroid that sits near my bladder. I had back pain, constant urge to urinate, and periods that were awful, clotty and literally drained me for a day or two. My Doctor of course frowned on the suggestion that I try a "Natural" solution, and thought better to remove this "little egg" as he called it. I did not want surgery, or being forced into early menopause.

So I went to this site, read the testimonials then off to the Health food store and bought the BSM and ACV.

Ok, after a year of faithfully taking 1 tablespoon of each BSM and ACV with a chaser glass of warm water each morn after breakfast (stomach will be upset if you take on empty) Then another dose before bedtime, I have noticed great improvement in the size of my stomach ( was bloated before due to tumor pushing on organs) and the frequent need to urinate went away after a month of using, my periods not as painful, or long, and less clots! You must try this as it does work, only if you use it accordingly, not more than twice a day.

I also switched my diet to Tofu, Kale, fresh veg, and fruit. Processed, fried and sugar filled foods are bad, and help grow that Fibroid! Reading this site got me to a safe waiting period, I will bet I am perimenopausal, and in a couple years this "tumor" will be gone or shrunk when I no longer have a period, as I have read I choose now to keep it in check till then. All I can advise is try the BSM & ACV, these brands Plantation BSM and _____ ACV are THE BEST! and any health food store Can order for you, Good luck in the fight against Fibroids.

Thanks for your sharing what brands to use after reading all the post I found yours most helpful on the type of ACV and BSM to buy. Some on here used the sulpured kind of molases and did not realize the sulphur would promote bleeding.

I hope they give this another try using the right kind. I was having clots as big as my fist while taking a low dose BC pill that used to help control my bleeding I am scheduled for Uterine fibroid Emboliztion at the end of March thank goodness for this site. My bleeding is just spotting now and that is great news.

I'm 36 yars old, I just left my OB GYN, I had myomectomy 5 years ago thinking i would have kids within 3 years after the surgery as my Doctor suggested, even though I was not married yet and had no prospects...well here i am five years later in the same social staus with my uterus the size of a 5 month fetus. I had also taken a low dose bc that caused clots the size of my fist and drained me physically and emotionally. My doc suggested I would probably need another surgery but this would reduce my chances of being able to carry a child. Ive cried for the last 2 hours until i read your blogs...thank you ladies! i'm running to the health food store now and with a little prayer, faith, and acv and bsm I will be healed from these tumors!
