Blackstrap Molasses Cure for Fibroids
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Blackstrap Molasses - 1 Tablespoon
Adding a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses (not the typical stuff you find in the grocery store) to your daily diet can give your body the rich source of nutrients and minerals (iron aplenty) that your body needs. Many people like it in coffee or milk and find that their symptoms and perhaps the fibroids themselves decrease drastically.
[YEA] 03/14/2008: Juanita from Little Rock, AR: "I was diagnosed with uterine fibroid cysts in Feb. of this year. I decided to take an active role in my health and see what I could do to shrink them(or get rid of them entirely) naturally. My doctor didn't want to do anything about them because I'm 48(he's hoping since I'm so close to menopause they will take care of themselves)and other than some heavy bleeding a day or two of my cycle(which were 9-16 days by the way) I wasn't having any problems, so he just wanted to "watch" them. Watch them do what? Grow?What if I'm NOT close to menopause and I'm one of those women that has a cycle until I'm 55?(It does happen). No thanks!!! I came across this website and decided to try Blackstrap Molasses. It has been a miracle! I have only been taking it for two weeks(one Tablespoon each morning) and my oh my what a change! I had noooo PMS(even my sister noticed I wasn't as grouchy), very little cramping, no bloating, normal bleeding, and noooo clotting! A happy side effect(if you can call it a"side effect")is that my skin is as soft as a baby's bottom. I can't wait until I go back to my doctor next year and he finds NO fibroids! Oh, and I'm not sure, but the few gray hairs popping in around my temple area appears to have slowed.I will take BSM for the rest of my life! I will get back to you after my exam next year!!!!"Replies
02/08/2010: Wanda from Chicago, Il replies: "The Blackstrap Molasses and Cider did slow/stop the bleeding for a day or two, but it would return there after. I tried Saw Palmetto 2 times/day followed by the BSM and Cider and the bleeding has stopped, but reoccurred. The latter method is causing my cycle to become more "normal". The fibroid has shrunk, and the 'jury is still out' as a cure. So far, I'm more satisfied."
03/14/2012: Special01 from Indianapolis, In, Usa replies: "I was the 16-18 day period and at first the black strap molassses just slowed the flow. I discovered if I take 1 tablespoon everyday and 2 tablespoons during my cycle the cycle only last 3 days!!!! Nothing for the gray hair."
[NAY] 03/01/2008: Sania from Delhi, India: "I had used molasses for uterine fibroids. But unstead of lessening my bleeding I bled much more. Infact I had to take medication to stop this heavy flow . I would like to iquire if molasses thins the blood. Please let me know --or may be it was due to some yoga exercises."Replies
11/07/2008: Lauea from Fort Lauderdale, Florida replies: "you must take unsulphered blackstrap molasses, sulphered bsm makes you bleed. ive been taking it for two months now and i have more energy and no fibroid symptoms but i have lost my appetite and lost weight i think it is a miracle food. ive now added acv but cant see any difference. 1tbs in am 1tbs in pm."
[YEA] 03/01/2008: Cintra from Port of Spain, Trinidad: "I sincerely believe that a vegan diet works combat fibroids. I have just started the vitex or chasteberry but have been using normal molasses for quite some time. I had no idea it was useful for shrinking fibroids because I use it to detoxify. A level tbsp. in a glass of hot water first thing every morning. I just have one or two heavy days and I feel more energetic since using the molasses because of the iron content. Also, my breakfast consists of oats, almonds, grounded flaxseeds,raisins etc."Replies
07/28/2008: Sherry from Longview, Washington replies: "I just bought a great book for women with Fibroids. I was written by a doctor who has fibroids. It is called FIBROIDS-The compltet Guide To Taking Charge Of Your Physical, Emotional, and Sexual Well Being. Author:Johanna Skilling.
In this book they DO have a list of herbs known to help Fiorbroids and a list of some women with fibroids should NOT take: Blue and Black Cohosh, Chaste tree (Vitex), Dong Quai (also called Angelica or Dang gui), Licorice (the herb not the candy) and Mother Wart are no-no's for firoids. These herbs can make bleeding worse if you have fibroids and/or cause the uterine cells to divide (creating more fibroids) and can cause high blood pressure if taken for long periods of time.
The GOOD NEWS is there are herbs that this medical doctor and others have researched and have been found to work well for women with firoids"Beth Root (for bleeding control), Black Haw (to detoxify) Cinnamon (for bleeding) Cramp Bark (for cramping and bleeding control), Dandelion (to detoxify), False Unicorn Root (for bleeding control), Garlic (to shrink fibroids), Ginger-Hops-Partridgeberry-Raspberry leaves ( for cramping control), Shepard's Purse-Wild Yam-Partridgeberry-Nettle-Lady's mantle (control bleeding) and YARROW herb shrinks fibroids-controls cramps AND controls bleeding! This list doesn't have EVERY possible herb for every symptom but reflects information from several sources,including NATURAL HEALING IN GYNECOLOGY by Rina Nissim; THE COMPLETE WOMAN'S HERBAL by Anne McIntyre and the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HEALING THERAPIES by Anne Woodham and Dr. David Peters. REMEMBER some plants (like ones I just listed not to take)have an effect like estrogen, others mimic progesterone-Fibroids get bigger and bled more as a result of either estrogen or progesterone, so be prepared to watch your symptoms. Some SAFE herbs for women with fibroids are listed above."
08/01/2008: Danielle from Tampa, FL replies: "I am trying to have another baby, and after finding the website I decided to try the molasses to see if it will shrink the one very large fibroid that I have. I have been taking one teaspoon for about a week now, and I notice at night I have been having cramps not sure if its because the tumor is contracting or what. Any advice would greatly help. Thanks!"
[YEA] 02/23/2008: Pauline from Merseyside, United Kingdom: "I have been anaemic for the past fifteen years and severely anaemic for the past six months. As I am 55 and in the midst of the menapause I just assumed that I was out of condition and overweight. I couldn't walk up the stairs without being out of breath. Last year on holiday in Florida, I was seriously considering hiring one of the electric scooters to get around the parks. My husband who has spinal arthritis and cannot walk unaided got around better than I did! I have suffered from fibroids for several years and last month my haemaglobin level was 6. My doctor wanted to take me into hospital for a blood transfusion. I said I would try the iron tablets first and see if they would help. I had a scan to locate the fibroids and discovered that I have several and an appointment was made for me to see a gyneacologist on 3/12/08 which I will attend. In the meantime I have been looking for possible cures on the internet and found your site. I have started taking BSM in capsule form because of all the positive feedback from other ladies who suffer as I do. One lady said she could feel one of her fibroids through the wall of her stomach, so I thought I would try to feel mine and sure enough, my husband and I felt one just below my navel. Today, 2/23/08, I cannot feel anything there! It has given me hope that this treatment will work and I will tell the GYN that I want three months to see if the BSM works. If the scan shows the fibroids are still there, I will have to consider an alternative cure but I am confident that the BSM will do the job! Will keep you posted!!"
[YEA] 02/09/2008: Yul. from P, South Africa: "(Normal) Molasses has made a HUGE difference in my bleeding from fibroids! (BUT BLACK STRAP Molasses actually extended my bleeding due to the sulphur acting as an anti-coagulant! So I'm really wondering if most ladies here are calling Molasses, BSM or Black Strap Molasses, when they're actually using the sweeter one??)
I've had 11-17 day long periods within a 28 day cycle for the past 5 years now due to having a fibroid. I've also been craving ice due to iron deficiency thorough summers and winters!
6 months ago I decided to drizzle Molasses (the normal sweeter one) into my ice-cubes, and what a hit!!! I just did it for the iron, but when I had my first and 2nd periods after that, I noticed that my bleeding was not as heavy, but thought it was just my imagination. The 3rd and 4th months my periods went from 11-17 days to only 6-7 days!!! Almost NO pain, and quite a lot less bleeding, especially after the first initial heavy days.
Then I tried ADDING BLACK STRAP MOLASSES to the normal molasses (1:2). This time my bleeding (the 5th period since starting this Molasses journey) just would not stop!! It was SO heavy and SO painful, day 9 was as heavy and painful as day 2-3, and for the first time in years I had to take pain medication! The only thing I had changed was the Black Strap instead of just the normal Molasses.
Then I remembered that the lady at the health shop said that the difference between Black Strap and normal sweet Molasses, is that Black Strap contains SULPHUR. I then read up about sulphur on the internet, and saw that it acts like an ANTI-COAGULANT (which stops your body from stopping bleeding!!) and can cause strong bearing-down pains, which was exactly what I was experiencing! So I immediately stopped the Black Strap and my bleeding immediately slowed down and stopped within 2-3 days.
This past month I've just been on the normal Molasses, and my 6th period has just ended in 6 days again!! I'm SO glad I've discovered this, and can feel my fibroid getting smaller!
WARNING: Just make sure you don't overdose on Molasses!! It was very easy for me to do since I was already in the habit of eating ice all day, and found that by drizzling Molasses into my ice was so delicious that I would often prefer that over food! I was going through 1 BOTTLE (250ml) every 1-2 DAYS!!!
Molasses is very high in iron, copper, etc. These nutrients in high doses can be bad for your liver/pancreas, etc, and yesterday I was extremely weak, shaky, yelow/green/nauseas, with a temperature, after having had diarhoea for 2 days before (could be a sign of iron overdose). I immediately stopped eating my Molasses ice and feel a lot better today.
I think I'm first going to research and find out exactly how much of each nutrient is in Molasses, and how much is safe to take, so that I don't overdose and cause some serious dammage... (Scary!!)
But over-all I'm feeling amazing (before yesterday!) and everyone is saying how much better and healthier I'm looking!
I would like to know though, if most people here are calling 'normal' Molasses: Black Strap Molasses???"Replies
03/03/2013: Isa from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "No they aren't. You mentioned sulphur being an anti coagulant. Everybody here is talking about unsulphured Black Strap Molasses so there is no sulphur. It is mentioned over and over again. Sugar is supposed to be bad for fibroids so that is probably why they don't use the regular one. I think the BSM is more nutrient dense."
[YEA] 01/27/2008: Joyce from Edinburgh, Indiana: "i just found this site tonight. my dr wants me to have a hysterectomy, but i won't. i know that it is an unecessary surgery. i have like 10 fibroids. i timed my bleeding to the minute. i can soak up a superplus tampon and pad every 30min for 8hrs, day 1. day 2 its every 2hrs then day 3-5 normal. i rarely have cramps. i thought my case was bad until i heard about people being on their periods for 2 plus weeks. i asked my dr to let me try the pill, which he really didn't want me to being that the pill feeds the fibroid and makes it larger. anyway, the pill worked just a little, such as bleeding every hr for 8hrs instead of every 30 min.... i had to switch pills because my insurance accidentally found out that they gave me the wrong type. when i switched, it gave me an allergic reaction; switched again, still a reaction (made me break out in bumps/hives) was taken off until i go to my next drs appointment. i think the pill is still in my system because now i will break out in hives out of the blue, put benadryl on it and it goes away. i just found a site today that said 200mg of ibuprofen every 4-6hr will slow it down by 25-30%. i have been taken it every time i change my tampon which appears as if it works because i change every 1-2 hrs...(hope i don't OD) i am about to get off of work. i hope that ___ sells the molasses. i hope it works. glad i ran into this website. will keep yall posted."
[YEA] 01/14/2008: Cynthia from Fort Worth , TX: "I am 50 year old female in excellent health I have been taking ACV for a year and half have lost 38 1lbs without having to diet and my skin looks great I sleep well at night and no longer suffer from depression or any digestive problems. I have lots of energy and look 38 instead of 50. My whole entire Family takes Vinegar I take it 3 times a day before 15-30 min before meals.
I have 3 Fibroids tumors the largest one is now giving me problems, prolong bleeding during my cycle which is still regular and comes every 21-28 days I still ovulate too. I saw info on your site about blackstrap molasses. I just started taking a Tablespoon 3 times a day a week ago and have notice some changes. I am not bleeding now and I sleep better at night I am hoping the BMS shrinks the Fibroids ASAP the one is pressing on my bladder is causing me to have incontinence which is very embarrassing if I am out and can not get to a restroom I have had accidents. I have referred my friends and family to your site for help. Thank you for the info on Blackstrap."
[YEA] 12/08/2007: Gina from New York, NY: "I have been taking BSM for about two weeks now--and am keeping my fingers crossed that something wonderful is going to happen. The possibility of surgery to remove my fibroids totally scared me. I was scared not bec. I didn't want to remove the fibroids, but bec. I knew that there was a better way to handle the problem. Additionally, my doctor kept telling me that he was 90% certain that he would be able to remove the entire fibroid throught surgery; however, not once did he mention that the surgery indeed guaranteed that the fibroid would not grow back once removed. Luckily I discovered the BSM through this site and have been taking it since. The everyday bleeding has ceased, and I can finally say that I had an almost normal five day menstral flow. After all of the intense bleeding--when the initial bleeding began on day one--I was so scared that I was going to bleed so heavily. Now, I am confident that next month, I will have a normal flow. My rec. to anyone is---schedule regular/routine sonagrams. Don't let anyone talk you into surgery until you are completely certain that the fibroids are indeed in your way or are not shrinking. Last but not least, I just would like to greet everyone and highlight the fact that being able to share our thoughts/feelings/experiences on line like this is simply priceless. We are able to communicate and we are able to enlighten--what a powerful TOOL!!!"
[YEA] 12/05/2007: Leah from Emeryville, CA: "This stuff works! I have suffered badly from fibroids for about 3 years now. I have tried alot of remedies to no avail. I was scheduled to have a myomectomy. Then I came across this site and started taking the blackstrap molasses in September 2007. Three tablespoons a day every single day. It has a horrible taste, but it is SO worth it. Immediately, I noticed a tremendous change in my bleeding. I would almost hemorrorhage, but now it is almost a normal flow. I was absoutely amazed! I had been praying for a a natural remedy and I think I have found it. It has also helped tremendously with my anemia. Previously, I had been to the hospital 3 times because of fainting spells. I have also totally changed my diet and only eat natural foods now and I get foot reflexology treatments done once a month. Also, saying the Lord's Prayer 15 times daily is good too.(If you're religious or spiritual). I have made alot of progress, but I still get hard cramps, but my periods are about 70% better than before. Ladies, just try it and give it chance, because it truly works!!!!"
[YEA] 11/23/2007: Patti from Hollywood, Fl: "I have been using BSM for fibroids and anemia for about aweek. The difference is amazing, I have energy, no bleeding and my stomach has gone down quite abit. I have been trying to loose weight in my stomach for the last 8 yrs and no luck. The whole time it has been the fibroids. In July I started doing Ionic foot detox and the fibroids became more apperent. It Works!"
[NAY] 09/04/2007: Bonnie from Hamilton, Ontario: "In December of 2006, I found out that I have fibroid tumors and that was the cause of my heavy bleeding and low iron level.At the end of January of this year I started taking BSM, hoping for that cure that everyone was talking about in shrinking those fibroids. Well I have been taking it every day ever since the first of Febuary.4 tbs a day. 2 in the morning and 2 at night. And it didn't work for me. I still have heavy periods, and blood clots.I guess it isn't for every one. But the ones that it did help, I'm glad for you, Just wish I was that lucky... :)"Replies
08/19/2009: Miranda from Campbellsville, Ky replies: "In response to Bonnie in Hamilton, Ontario, many have specified that the black strap molasses **must** be unsulfured for it to have effectiveness. Did you use unsulfured? I'm another victim with the same sad song for years, but I have high hopes and can't wait to try it. Hope it relieves my suffering also. Important Note to Everyone: If this is really working, please be careful about what you say to your medical professionals. We wouldn't want big brother to take it away from us (for instance, the way Lugol's was outlawed, which was used for years to treat our elders thyroid conditions, and other ailments). Fewer med appointments = less money made (less pharms and surgeries sold), could = no more BSM. Don't be foolish to think it can't or won't happen. God Bless to you all, and good luck to everyone in this endeavor."
08/19/2009: Selena from Chula, Ga replies: "I read on the internet somewhere where someone had linked a lot of issues like fibroids and heavy periods to Vit. K insufficiency as well as dark circles under the eyes and anemia. If I can relocate it, I will post the link."
08/20/2009: Selena from Chula, Ga replies: "This is one of the best of many links I have found about problems caused from a Vit. K deficiency. I suggest everyone read it (especially women.) Many people are deficient because of antibiotic use that destroys the flora in the intestines....which produce Vit. K for the body. Easy bruising, blue circles under the eyes, heavy periods, ovarian pain, etc.
[YEA] 07/24/2007: Lauren from Raleigh, North Carolina: "Hello All...My cousin introduced me to this site and I read all the claims about BSM. I suffered from break through bleeding while on the PILL and in no time the bleeding was full blown. I was miserable and passed clots for two weeks straight. I had an ultra sound done and found out my fibroids came back. I went out and got the BSM and did the dosage recommended and in about a weeks time my cramps disappeared and I didn't feel like a whale. Thank you for these postings and insight on using something in our pantry."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 07/19/2007: Tracy from Los Angeles, USA: "This is amazing! I started using black strap molasses two months ago after reading the comments on this site. I have had fibroid tumors for two and a half years. I got a scan a few weeks ago and I found out they have doubled in size since my last scan, they are now 3" in size. The main problem for me has being the long periods and the heavy bleeding. My periods would last up to 2 weeks and I would pretty much go into hibernation since I was so paranoid about bleeding profusely while out in public..
I started taking black strap molasses 1 tbls. per day for a whole month, I did see some slowing down of my period for the first month but it was still quite heavy. I then found out I was anemic, what a surprise that explained the long hours I sleep and the lack of energy, I immediately increased my dosage to 3 tbls. per day and my last period I only had 2 heavy days and 3 really light ones.
Another area that seems to be affected by the tumors is my bladder, the tumors are pressing on my bladder so it seems that I have to run to the bathroom every five minutes to pee..
I will keep you up to speed on the tumors and my progress I am going to get a blood count again next month to see if there is any change there. My Doctor has recommended having the tumors removed and I told her to give me till the end of this year to see if the black strap molasses helps to shrink the tumors.
I am so glad I found this site and all the helpful testimonials.. If you have any questions or comments contact me on my blog www.sisterposse.blogspot.com"Replies
04/11/2011: Hannah from London, Uk replies: "I've been looking at websites trying to find something to shrink my fibroids, which are very large, making my womb the size of a 12 week pregnancy. After reading about blackstrap molasses I bought some a few weeks ago and started taking 2 tablespoonfuls each day.
My period is usually quite heavy. I use a mooncup (a silicone menstrual cup), so I can see how much blood I'm losing. Well, apparently women lose on average 35ml of blood each period, but for the first few days of my period that's what I usually lose in one day.
I'm now on my first period since starting the BSM, and it seems much lighter than usual. Today is day 1, and I have only lost about 15ml, much less than usual. So I believe that it is doing something! I don't know yet whether or not it will have any effect on my fibroids, but I'm going to carry on with it, and see what happens.
I have tried taking Apple Cider Vinegar too, but it gives me very bad heartburn (I know, ACV is supposed to cure heartburn, but I'm the other way round for some reason... Does anyone have any suggestions why this might be?).
I'm finding the posts on here fascinating, especially as so many people have had positive results. I really don't want to have a hysterectomy, as one doctor suggested, as I'm only 37. Thanks for all the information so far. I'll update with how I get on with the BSM."

[YEA] 07/17/2007: Lyn from Saint Clair, Missouri: "Just an update for all. I started the Black Strap Molasses for my Fibroids on 6/25/07 today alittle less than 1 month later....I can tell for sure it is working ladies. Don't delay anymore, this really works. Praise GOD all the way!!!! I'm also taking Organic Apple Cider vinegar and can tell a huge difference in my joint stiffiness. Good Luck!!"
