[YEA]  03/11/2008: Wilma from Murrieta, CA: "I am 37, and my Grandfather used to give me BSM when I was younger. I have returned to using it since I have heart paplpitations and dizziness due to very low iron. I feel much better, and as one reader stated "the moons are back in her fingernails" so are mine. I also drink Tonic Water around the cold/flu season to divert an oncoming cold."


[YEA]  10/09/2007: Dodie from LA, California: "I've been taking blackstrap molasses for a week now and thank goodness I've been getting 3 bowel movements a day!! I have a hard time getting bowel movements partially cause of the foods that I eat but I am working on it. Also, my father has the same issues. Also, my face is glowing and I've gotten a couple of comments and how good my skin looks! I hope it doesn't stop working for me."


[YEA]  10/04/2007: Ana from Boston, MA: "I have been taking 2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses every day for 2 months with my morning cup of coffee and a little milk. Delicious! I am in my 50's. My hair was starting to gray in certain spots and was becoming noticeable. So, this experiment was to see if the molasses would halt the graying. Well, for one thing, I have NO MORE SUGAR CRAVINGS throughout the day. I don't care to taste desserts, ice cream, chocolates, nothing. I have lost some weight. My dark circles are clearing up. I feel better. I still have the old strands of gray, there has not been a sign of new gray hair. TED, my only questions are: Is the sucrose level of molasses more damaging than the few minerals and little iron that molasses contains??? According to Dr. Mercola, molasses is as bad as any refined sugar. TED: What is the best thing for my hair which was and still is quite sparse from my forehead to the top of my head? I started losing hair in my early thirties. It is fine and in the sunlight it is quite noticeable. What can I do? Ana"


[YEA]  09/21/2007: Tammy from St. Louis, MO: "Hi. I have been diagnosed with Stage IV metatstatic breast cancer (spread to the bones). I have become anemic. Dr. said to take in more iron. I bought blackstrap molasses unsulphured. Took a tablespoon Tuesday evening, a tablespoon Wednesday morning. Noticed Wednesday afternoon I "had energy" & then realized that after a 4 block walk at a fast pace did not leave me winded and fatigue my legs (the Saturday before I became winded and fatigued after only 1 block). Went home from work, took another tablespoon, did heavy gardening until 10:00 that night. Was still feeling energized! Took the same amount of blackstrap Thurday and Friday (today). Here is the amazing part: when I am anemic, I get tinnitus - sound in my ears. It is a pulsating sound like I can hear my blood pulsating through my veins. The more anemic I am, the louder the tinnitus. I've been through this before. Took blood transfusions and the tinnitus went away. My last treatment regimen for the cancer worked (for awhile) and as I got better from the medication, my blood got better, and the tinnitus gradually went away. Now, since taking the blackstrap (starting three days ago), each night I notice the tinnitus is lessened. Last night it was BARELY audible and was not constant. I expect tonight it will not be there at all. (Night time is when I notice it when all is very quiet). I would bet were I to have my blood tested today, my red blood cell and platelet counts would be either normal or just about normal. OK, I am truly amazed. Is it the blackstrap? Ok, next thing to try: hydrogen peroxide. Then apple cider vinegar! God bless you all for sharing!"

I was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer which had spread to the bones. The second opinion concurred. After taking Molasses with another substance for 10 days I had another bone scan. I was afraid to open the envelope that was sent me containing the results. I burst out bawling like a baby when it said: No convincing evidence of an osseous metastatic process. I am very very happy....."
06/19/2008: Maria from Toledo, Ohio replies: "To: 06/18/2008 Vernon from Salem, Oregon

Great news, Vernon from Salem!!!! But, please share what the other substance was! I have breast cancer, and need your info. And, can you tell us how much of each thing what kind (if applicable) and how often? Thanks."
07/21/2008: Maria from Omaha, Nebraska replies: "For the lady with the recipe for the stage IV breast cancer. You said you took Molasses and something else. Would you please share? Thanks."
02/21/2009: P.B.Mondalek from Bay Village, Ohio replies: "my girlfriend has metastatic breast cancer---please tell me what other substance is that you took with BSM----PLEASE!!!!! thank you in advance for your time."
05/20/2009: Steven from Port Hueneme, CA replies: "I am not the person that used BSM with another substance for cancer but there us a well known use of BSM with baking soda for cancer. You might want to look into that."
11/17/2011: Shasta from Dallast, Tx replies: "Can you please let me know what the other substance is? My friend was diagnosed with prostate cancer & anything can help. Thank you."
01/05/2012: Maura from Easton, Md replies: "I think I heard about the unsulfered blackstrap Molasses and baking soda, also. Why not just brush your teeth with the soda or use a 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of soda in a cup of water twice or three times a day? Baking soda prevents all kinds of infection and my grandmother lived to late 90's using it to brush her teeth. She was never sick. Mercola wrote on one of his articles that folks who used baking soda were protected from 1918 flu epidemic."


[YEA]  07/21/2007: Tish from Chicago, IL: "My period has been always heavy that my hemoglobin level is always low that I have to take iron and shot every 2 weeks. ITs hard also to work and go to the bathroom every now and then. When I bleed it like for 10 days and more. I was diagnosed with fibroid just 2 months ago and I found your website just weeks before my surgery and its my second day of my period. I started taking the molasses and the next day my period slow down and no blood clotting and it stopped after 5 days. My daughter is always suffering from constipation and I recommended her this and she said she never pooh like this before.. THANK YOU!"


[YEA]  03/27/2007: ROBERT from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia: "Molasses (black strap) for joint and throat: arthritic joints and sore throat, plus it's a great energy producer. I would suggest an unsulfered black strap molasses."


[YEA]  03/14/2007: Helen from Long Island, United States: "I have been taking molasses in warm milk and agree it is like a latte. It really tastes good. Also, my leg pain has lessened and I can go up stairs and walk much better. I am also taking the vinegar and baking soda which I didn't think was doing much, but when I added the molasses drink I think it made a big difference. (My doctor says I have very bad arthritis. This is the first relief I have had. These remedies are highly recommended by me."


[YEA]  02/28/2007: Jennifer from Greenfield, WI: "I went to the health food store to ask about what I could give my 15 month-old son for constipation. They suggested 1-2 tsp. of blackstrap molasses in his bottle. I bought the bottle, came home, came to this website and discovered all different things this stuff is good for. I am 8 months pregnant. I was having a lot of trouble sleeping and developing symptoms of restless leg syndrome (common in pregnancy). I decided to give it a shot. Long story short, my son is pooping like a champ and I started sleeping through the night without any jerking limbs ON THE FIRST DAY! I ran out for one day, and I had a horrible night sleep. I am amazed and delighted."


[YEA]  02/11/2007: Kim from Westport, MA: "Hi there I have been reading and applying the remedies on this site now for over a week with positive results. Since I have added taking 1 tablespoon full of blackstrap molasses every morning before or after my acv concoction, I have noticed something different about the hair growth I suffer from on my face. It I feel has retarded the growth, slowing it down so I don't have to pluck so often. Could it be true? I have suffered for years and years with this condition, I think due to polycystic syndrome. Is it possible that possibly the magnesium in the molasses is affecting my hormones in such a positive way? All I know is, I will keep taking the acv and backing soda for general well-being and pain reduction, along with my tablespoon of black strap molasses to help with female issues and help reduce pain as well. I have noticed my knee pain that was really bad, has almost totally gone away. When I mention what I do to others they simply shake there head roll there eyes, and decide its not for them. But I have to say my excitement and testimonials are making some wonder! All I know is my contact dermatitis disappeared, and pain has greatly diminished and now facial hair slowing down...I am waiting for my body to begin showing me more signs of all of the natural elements being to cure/heal& be gone! I am in awe of this site and appreciate all the feedback I read. Kim"


[YEA]  12/27/2006: Mitch from Honey Brook, PA: "I work in quality control at a molasses company in PA. Since, working here I have found a ton of sources for the health benefits of blackstrap molasses. My wife and I have been taking it now for about 4 months and have not been sick. She used to get sore necks and since we started taking the molasses, she hasn't had any. Also, a friend of ours that we got hooked on molasses had been taking arthritis medicine for the last 6 months. He's been taking blackstrap molasses for a few weeks and just recently stopped taking the arthritis medicine. If anybody is interested, you can buy blackstrap molasses off my company's website www.goldenbarrel.com and have it sent right to you."


[YEA]  12/12/2006: Jeanne from Monroe, MI: "blackstrap molasses cures restless leg syndrome, arthritic pain and swelling, joint pains, and increased bone density."

[YEA]  07/07/2006: Claire from UK: "i had a problem with my left ankle giving way and also suffered badly from carpal syndrome. i was not sure if the molasses would work but i read the comments here and thought i would give it a go. I have been taking 3 tsp regularly since 3 weeks ago. I am amazed -- it has cured my ankle which i no longer have to strap up. Also my carpal syndrome was incredibly painful especially at night. Thankfully i don't have pain anymore. Finally i was astonished to notice that i had actually lost 10 lbs in weight. i think it has cured my sugar craving as i don't feel as hungry anymore. I have been telling my family and friends to take it as it's like a miracle cure for many things. Also my skin is fresh looking, nails are stronger and my hair is shinier."


[YEA]  04/24/2006: Maggie from Bartlesville, Oklahoma: "1 Tblsp. blackstrap molasses, three times a day cured heart palpitations,and edema in my hands and ankles. Also my fingernails are much stronger. During my 4 day stay at the hospital for hip surgery, I was given 2 potassium pills as my potassium was very low. When i arrived home, i gave blackstrap molasses a try. Never dreaming that in less than a week my ankles and hands didn't swell anymore, and the heart flutters that i had for many years were gone. Oh , I almost forgot, I now have fingernails. I'm telling everyone i meet about my miracle cure."
