How does the Iodine paint for fibroids work? If Ted is there to answer would be wonderful. Not many posts about it. What I have understood after reading the research parers of Dr. S on iodine is that the Table salt in the U.S. has iodide in it and no iodine. Thus if we want to start taking the Lugol's for fibroids it will have both Iodine and Iodide too in it. So what should be the strength of Lugol's to start with and what dosage should be good for our bodies. My age is 40 and have 2 fibroids 2cms. Causing heavy bleeding with clots.

Hi Kitti... The strength of lugols iodine should be 5% but nowadays it is sold at only 2%. Therefore dosages will be different for 5% LI and 2% LI. You will need a minimum of 8 drops 5% LI to achieve a recommended dose of 50 mgs iodine to help cure fibroids and breast cysts. For 2% LI you will need 20 drops to achieve a 50 mgs dose. These dosages should be split into individual doses of 2 - 4 drops per individual dose. You can also use Iodoral(tablet form of lugols iodine) to achieve the 50 mg dose.

Here is some research on the effectiveness of iodine against breast cysts and fibroids:

If you take lugols iodine -- then the full Iodine Protocol should be taken to avoid problems -- shown here:

@Kitti - you need to start slowly - 2 drops of 5% Lugols iodine 2 x per day in water - then work up to 4 drops 2 x per day. Even more, depending on your particular iodine deficiency status. It will take around 2 months for your body to have all it needs, at which time lower the dosage to 4 drops per day.

Iodine deficiency is one of the greatest health risks today, and can cause many ailments and dread disease. It will benefit all to supplement with iodine (Lugol's solution) permanently in low dosages, once saturation is achieved.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have a 10cm fibroid (or did a month ago) I started painting iodine (inexpensive tincture of iodine, the kind you put on cuts) on my skin twice a day. About a 2 inch square patch in different places once in am, once in pm. I used to lie down and feel this large hard lump on my right side. It never went away. I have awful periods with horrible pain. This is why I went to emergency where they did ultrasound and found the 10cm fibroid. This was a month ago. I've tried so much to get rid of this thing and spent so much. Progesterone made it bigger. DIM helped with breast tenderness before period but did nothing else. Enzymes, nothing. Vitamins, ridding myself of detergents and lotions, etc. Did not help. My head spun when I read all the herbs and diets and supplements people were taking to get rid of their fibroids.

Then I read extensive writings about iodine. I bought a couple bottles and started painting it on my skin. A mere two weeks later and I can't feel the bump anymore. There is a fibroid yet though. I can feel a smaller lump very far down a little right of pubic bone, but where is the rest of it? At night when my bladder is full and I lay on my back I can feel the fibroid but about a third as big. Remember, it's only been two weeks. I do nothing more. I take iron because I lose so much blood each month. I randomly take a B-complex or cod liver oil or other vitamin pills just because I have so many that I bought to help get rid of this thing. But I don't take anything regularly. It's been about 5 years since my periods started getting bad. I'm waiting for the first one since iodine and am hopeful. (actually I started iodine 2 days before period. The pain killers were cut by one third-perhaps just a coincidence)

How could something like iodine shrink my fibroid so quickly? I truly am afraid to hope. But hope I will. And I will return to let you know how it works. Good luck to all dealing with these things and God help speed your recovery.

I forgot to say I have been drinking all my water with a little lemon in it. This might be helping the shrinking the fibroids but I don't know. Maybe a combination? Just wanted to add that in case it is important.

Prescription drugs are not the answer. I eliminated my fibroid tumors with Vitamin B6 and kelp. Iodine is extremely important in the diet and almost everyone's diet is so deficient in this particular mineral, but how your add it to your diet is equally as important as the mineral itself. What most people do not understand is that minerals are meant to be bound together in a natural form that the body can easily absorb and utilize. This does not mean saturating it with one mineral alone; this will put the body in balance for a very short time and then unbalance it just as quickly once the body is over saturated which will make you equally as sick as when your started. The answer is to put minerals into your body in a safe form which of course is food. Kelp, especially Laminaria digitata. It's so safe and very effective in curing disease especially of the thyroid and it will also heal your fibroids. Disease is a mineral deficiency. Kelp is so full of minerals that the body can pick and choose exactly what it needs and absorb it quickly which of course is very healing. Laminaria digitata is very high in iodine and you can eat as much of it as you want for the rest of your life and will never over saturate yourself as it is a food and the body will only choose to absorb the iodine if is is in need. The best way to heal is always through your diet. If you want to heal extra fast please use my alkalizing drink. I always take 1/2 tsp of Laminaria digitata kelp on the side of this drink by spoon. I just down it with the drink. The drink is:

1 cup of water or there abouts. 1 tblspn of unsulphered blackstrap molasses
1 tsp of turmeric
1 lemon, freshly squeezed to make sure you have the anions from the lemon which are very alkalizing. 4-6 drops of stevia. Not all stevias are created equal and some are just as toxic as aspertame. Stir it well and drink. This drink is anticancer, antiinflamatory, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal. It is extremely health promoting and healing. It is a drink and you should have once a day at least and more if you are in poor health. Good luck and I truly hope you try my recommendations as it has made such a drastic improvement in my own health and others, that I know it will help you if you give it a chance.

Dear Margarate, After reading your successful story, I am feeling well little bit. Most of the reviews I saw here are for stopping heavy bleeding. I have multiple fibroids & the worst part is my uterus size has enlarged to 17 cm lentgh wise. I am so worried because we are yet to plan for kids. I have painful periods for a day & I don't have any other problems during the cycle. I want to know how you applied tincture of iodine as a patch. Please let me know any other things that you tried and think will work. I am really desperate to get rid of this and have a baby. Thanks.

Daisy, I don't think iodine tincture would be enough iodine for something like fibroids. When you paint it on your skin much of it evaporates anyway. You might want to look into iodine that you can take internally, like lugol's solution or the pill form called Iodoral. These can be purchased online, but with the situation in Japan many sites are sold out. Have you looked into balancing your estrogen, since too much is a cause of fibroids? You could try something called DIM and also progesterone cream. I also have fibroids and just recently purchased Iodoral. I am first doing the liver/kidney cleanse that Bill recommends before I start the iodine to help with any detox symptoms. There is an iodine forum on yahoo groups that has a lot of good information about supplementing with iodine and the other supplements that need to be taken along with iodine. Best of luck to you with your health.

I was reading these comments with interest. I've been taking Iodoral (2 tablets/day) for almost a year, but no real change in fibroid. I'm wondering if my body flushes out some of it, so it doesn't get full benefit. That's why I'm revisiting the iodine painting. Maybe if you apply it directly to the body it will be absorbed better? I don't know. I do know that castor oil and iodine act as liver detox, and that's why the fibroids shrink, theoretically, because the iodine helps the liver get rid of the toxins in your body (bad estrogen included).

Excess estrogen contributes to the increase in fibroid size. The average physician doesn't make the connection, nor does h/she make the connection between progesterone and fibroids. If you have large fibroids, you're supposed to avoid the following : progesterone cream, estrogen in any form, DHEA, licorice, yam, black cohosh. Progesterone cream may make small fibroids shrink, but larger ones seem to love progesterone.

It seems that hormone imbalance/deficiency is the root cause of fibroids, beginning w/ thyroid dysfunction. There are probably other causes that contribute to this, but this seems to be the primary reason women entering perimenopause are susceptible to them. A balanced diet can help stave off further growth, but I'm not sure that it will shrink them. It seems that liver detox support is the most likely solution, in addition to correcting the underlying problem. Get your hormone levels checked, esp. thyroid. A simple blood test may not show deficiency. If you have the symptoms, you most likely have a thyroid problem. You can take your temp for 7 days beginning the second day of your menstrual cycle. If it's consistently low, you've most likely a problem. Again, theoretically, once the thyroid is balanced, the other stuff should follow suit.... But, liver detox is something you can do now w/o a problem. Also, check your adrenal function. If that's off, it can cause all the other stuff to "fall" like dominos.

Margaret from Somewhere, Iowa, did you find out for sure whether your fibroid shrank, (with a scan)? That would be great if it did, and it would give me some hope at least!

I have a fibroid uterus, the size of a 10 week pregnancy. Most distressing is the large fibroid that's pressing on my bladder and causing all sorts of bladder and urethra pain/spasms.

I am desperate for a natural remedy as I don't want to have surgery, and have been painting iodine for the last week or so. I'm also drinking lemon water, and have just started molasses (2 teaspoons), each morning.

I've read a few posts that say painting iodine shouldn't help, as your body absorbs so little of the iodine with this method, and it's not worth doing. Is this true?

So far I haven't noticed any difference, but I know it's really early days. I expect it to take more than two weeks for me, as I just have so many fibroids and have had them for a long time.

Has anybody else had luck with iodine painting? Did it work, and how long did it take?

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Iodine is working with enzymes to shrink my uterine fibroids. You poor thing you don't know if you have uterine fibroids, is your gut getting fat, but not necessarily the rest of you? Did anyone ask you if you were pregnant? there should did me, my man upset with me because of this drastic change said, "everyday's a vacation for you lying around" At that time we didn't know I was suffering from fibroids. Even super model Beverly Johnson said it took her 4 years for proper diagnosis! Are you weak bladdered? menstrual cycles heavy and long term, with clots in the maxipad-fatigued aneamic? hormonal, libidoless? stressed, constipated? Fibroids push down or up on other organs, causing organs not to function properly. You are tired but don't know why, your family sees you have changed but cannot help, the doctors misdiagnose you. B-Vitamins deficiency, Iodine deficiency can lead to Cystic Breasts (lumpy) and uterine Fibroids. This is probably the 4th year of my battle, and having just learned in late June/July of 2009 I feel alive again. My boyfriend dumped me because he suffered too long with bad diagnosises and lack of closeness-He doesn't care anymore-So last week he dumped me, but now that I'm new, it's like being reborn and knowing it's only going to get better and stronger! What boyfriend? suck it Ryan! Here I come world. Iodine terminates that crap in your body and regulates your heart, makes your breasts soft and supple and smooth. What a miracle cure. Why is it the things from our creator: God are often forgotten, in lieu or man made, manufactured, genetically enhanced poison?

Linoleic Acid   1  0   

Posted by Deborah (Newark, New Jersey USA) on 06/17/2012

[YEA]  I wanted to share with you and all your readers the great benefit I have experenced taking conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to reduce fibroid tumors. I have never actually been diagnosed with fibroids, but they do run in my family. My mother, aunt and older sister have had hysterectomies because of out-of-control fibroids which threatened to kill them from hemorraging. Somewhere about the time I turned 40 years old I started experiencing heavy periods. Around the same time I had started taking CLA for weight control and some of the other benefits I had read about (it's good for preventingtumors of all kinds). I hadn't made the connection yet, but my period had become regulated without my noticing. For whatever reason I stopped taking the CLA for quite some period of time. (I tend to take supplements for a time and then run out and forget to get more. ) Perhaps a couple of years passed and I not only began to get heavy flows every month, but they might continue for more than a week--sometimes as much as two weeks! I also was in so much pain that my husband had to pull me out of the bed because it hurt so much to sit up on my own. I actually blew out my kidneys (which were already failing) with all the acedominophen and ibuprophen that I was taking. I began to worry that I might suffer the same fate as my mother and sister. But them the Lord reminded me that I had read that CLA works to shrink tumors. I started taking it again--just one 1000 mg capsule daily. By the time my next period came the flow was back to normal, lasting no more than a week. I really don't remember when the pain subsided because I was then in the throes of dialysis and all that entails, but that's another story. Some time later, my other sister called complaining of extremely heavy periods that lasted two weeks. I was very excited to be able to recommend to her to take CLA. I gave her a partially filled bottle that I had. She never mentioned having any problems after that. I guess she forgot her troubles and had moved on normally with her life. When I asked her about it she told me that she had indeed been able to regulate her period to normal by the very next peiod. Since then I have also been able to recommend to my cousin the same treatment, and she has also experienced miraculous results by the next menstrual period. I praise God who gives us the tools and the increase to help our bodies to heal themselves.

Lugol's Iodine   2  0   

Posted by Stella (Ontario, Canada) on 03/16/2014

[YEA]  When I was 69, I was using a small amount of topical hormones and knew that I had Uterine Fibroids and a thick Endometrium for about 12 years. Finally the doctor said it was dangerous to go on like this and I would need to go OFF all Hormones and have a 2nd Uterine Ultrasound, after 6 weeks had passed. The doctor thought the hormones were part of the problem. A Hysterectomy was in my future. I said I would stop using them but I didn't.

I had recently started taking Lugol's Solution (5%) Iodine and was at about 50 mg. minimum at that time. I increased it slowly to 100 mg. during that 6 weeks.

When I went back to my doctor for the results, she said "so you stopped the hormones?" I replied that I did, just so not to get in trouble. My Uterine thickness had now gone back to normal and the Fibroids had all shrunk in that 6 weeks time.

Dr. David Brownstein's book said Lugol's was used for any Fibroids and it turned out to be true.


Posted by Karen ( Calgary, Alberta) on 02/04/2014

[YEA]  I suffered with fibroids for many years. The turning point came when I used lugols iodine as an enema. I had used it years before as drops in water but it didn't do much. Now use 1/2 teaspoon in about 2 cups spring water in an enema bag I get from the drugstore. I leave it in my body for 5-15 min. I feel great now. No more fatigue or mental fog. I speak more intelligently. I am no longer sensitive to heat at night. Have lots of energy. Have stopped the iron pills. I also take 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses with some peanut butter. That's better than the molasses alone. A holistic nurse on this site wrote that they do that in her hospital for patients that refuse transfusions. It works great. You do the molasses and peanut butter 1-3 times per day depending on how serious the anemia is. But the iodine enema is what really changed my life. The directions are in the following article from

ENEMA - Use a Fleet enema bottle. Empty out contents, wash out with hot water. Wipe off lubricated tip thoroughly with a dry paper towel and wash with hot water. Do not use any detergent! Fill up bottle with room temp water poured through a coffee filter. Preferable to boil water in glass container and let cool. Add up to 1/2 teaspoon of Lugol's. After a few enemas, it can be increased to one teaspoon. Avoid spilling, it stains. To lubricate tip, use only olive oil, butter, vitamin E gel. Do not use any commercial chemical lubricants. Do tuhe enema. Hold it in for 5 to 15 minutes or as long as you can. Initially, you may only be able to hold it in for a few minutes. It is preferable to lie down. Expect loads of mucus, gel, trash, undigested food and several movements within hours as mucus keeps coming out. If you're mucus loaded up, repeat enema daily for 2, 3 or 4 days. Then, once a week for 4 weeks until mucus/trash free. Maintenance, one enema a month.

[YEA]  I had a problem with fibroids. My O. B. Said it was the size of a 4 month fetus. Recommended it out. I don't know if this is the usual treatment, but my naturopath, who had never failed me.. Put me on Maca, 2 capsules 2 to 3 times daily and Essiac Tea. Not only did it work but it gave me energy. I took it for a few years before I went back for a check up and it was gone. I still continue with both, because the maca is supposed to be good for other things and essiac tea saved my life. I have been drinking that for years. It is a great detox besides being anti tumor, both malignant and benign.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Hi, I am from Malaysia. I have been diagnosed with 2 fibroids, 2.2 cm and 2.3 cm, in early 2011. After a few months when I went back for check up, 2 fibroids have become one at the size of 5.5 cm. After 2 mths, it has grown to 6 cm. Doctor advises me to remove it completely but I refuse because I afraid it might render my chances of pregnancy. Then I started taking chinese med which the lady doctor claimed that she has curred many patients with fibroids.

in May 2012, the med. Check up shown the fibroids has grown to 7.6 cm, when I went back to the lady doc, she found out that I didnt change my diet and consuming too much tea, coffee, diary products, and etc. Since then I tried to change my diet and quitted many unhealty foods. 3 weeks ago, when I went for med. Check up, the report shown it has grown to 8.6 cm. This has frighten me as it seems growing fast. Luckily I have never experienced pain and bleeding problems during period.

One day I came across a website in Malaysia,Ã¥ and found some recipes that could shrink fibroids.

1) having this juice every morning (blend them and drink the whole thing)

1 x red carrot , 1 x banana, 1/4 slice lemon, 1 x yellow capsicum, 1 x green apple, and 1 stalk of celery

** a 3cm fibroids found in a lady has disappeared completely after continuing taking the drink for 1 month.

2) 2 herbs which can be found in Malaysia (not sure abt other countries). These herbs have cured many patients with cancer, fibroids, thyroids and etc

**sabah sneak grass - Im taking 150 pcs per day blend with apple.

I am following these 2 recipes for 2 weeks, suprisingly, I realise that I dont go to toilet so often like the past 1 yr. Especially during night time, I used to woke up 2-3 times every night to pee, but now I can hold until morning with no problem at all. Every night when I touch on the lump, it seems getting smaller.

Today, I have decided to add blackstrap molasses into the plan. Hopefully it will give a better result to combating fibroids.

I will go for scanning again by end of August, hopefully it will be a good news....

[YEA]  FIBROIDS OR CYSTS: I just want to help other women with promising formulas that work. I CANNOT MENTION PRODUCT BRANDS OR URL'S YOU CAN EMAIL ME FOR THAT INFO.

DIM plus 6/day (gets rid of bad estrogen that causes fibroids or cysts)

Vitex 2/day (levels out your progestin to keep estrogen balanced

Iosol Iodine (water soluble kind not the ones for cuts) 4-5 drops daily in about 2 ounces of water or juice ( most women with cysts or fibroids are low on iodine (Google it).

Organic Castor Oil soaked (not dripping) on a flannel rag/cover with plastic wrap/place heating pad over plastic wrap/lie down for 1. 5-2 hrs. 5/week when you can relax and complete the 1. 5-2 hrs. Except on period days (causes increased circulation so it may increase bleeding) (castor oil will help shrink the fibroids (PLEASE use a BPA FREE container) to store flannel soaked rag after use (can resuse several times til oil starts to smell) add more oil in container over flannel when you use next time

Serrapeptase try for 10 mg. Take by directions at least 3/day (I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND THIS PRODUCT) (I tried to take this product but it caused nausea for me at the time) I have since taken it and was fine, no nausea (it is an enzyme from the silkworm (all natural) and it eats away fibrin in our bodies which can be blood clots, cysts, and mainly, our concern, fibroids. (Google it for info and reviews) If you get nauseated with the Serrapeptase you can try Nattokinase (it is from a fermented soy and does the exact mission as the Serapeptase to rid the body of fibrin (you can Google it also)

I also alkalined my body with homemade organic lemonade/with stevia or trivia (natural do not use sugar) (all throughout the day) and I used PH drops to put in my water 3/day (especially 1 of the times about 2:30 - 3:00 in the morning if you get up for the bathroom) as per Ted saying this is one of the highest acidic times (so great time for the drops) if possible PLEASE AVOID red meat, chicken, eggs, milk, or creamers that are not organic b/c they contain hormones that have estrogen effects, (estrogen feeds your fibroids and makes them grow) Also if possible use BPA FREE plastics to drink in and store food

I HIGHLY recommend these products I know they work w/o a doubt. Give them at least 2. 5 months please, possibly 3 to see difference. You should absolutely feel a difference in the size of the fibroids or cysts outside of your uterus when you lie down. It may seem like a lot to take but I now have no fibroids like I did (it was worth for me and so quickly)

please contact me if you have more questions and I wish the best for you, sincerely Sheree (wishingsoon(at)yahoo. Com) I make no profit on these products I just use them with MUCH SUCCESS

at first I took acv, molasses and baking soda.

until the baking soda made my skin grey it had aluminum in it. Then I just used Apple Cider Vinegar and molasses. For nearly a month now. Then I decided to make things quicker. By combining tumeric, molasses, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and apple cidar vinegar, flax seed powder, grape seed extract and spirulina. Today's my first trial run at this remedy. I'll keep you posted. I'm feeling better inside my stomach thats a good sign I can feel it working more.

apart from the usual mollases and Apple Cider Vinegar I think this double triple dose could be effective to shrink the fibroids. I dont eat anything with sugar, no meat, a little fish, water with lemon, or acv... No sodas, white breads, maybe whole wheat. No soy. Mainly almond milk, flax, fiber cereal.. Oatmeal.. My food intake is vary vary light. I'm training my body to survive off of little food intake to help this process more.

if I go out to dinner I'm ordfering fish and salad.

by the way if anypne has any other cures for fibroids or have tried ones close to this could you post your remedies. for fibroids and hair growth..

for hair growth I put a mixture of galric, acv, coconut oil, in my hair and I color it naturally with henna. Red henna mixed with lemon acv, coco nut oil, olive oil, tumeric I combine and leave in for about 2-4 hours. I'll keep you posted on that also. Oh by the way does anyone know how to properly make purple henna. I hear indigo mixed with black henna, and blackberries, cranberries, and lemon might be a good hair coloring for it. But if your familiar with it could you send meinfo on it thanks.. stay blessed...

I had fibroids in my boobs for years and I took evening primrose oil for 1 month and they are still not back and that was 3 and 1/2 yrs ago. I decided to try to continue to take it and didnt like the thinness that it did to my skin. It worked and my doctor told me to take it even tho I already was. I had been on it for 1 month when she said I should get my yearly mommogram and assumed I would have fibroids as I had for almost 30 yrs, and none were to be found. I also have some on my uteris but they are still there. I dont need surgery for them and hope I never do.

(I avoided plastic bottles, telflon), gave up all dairy, I drank dandylion tea for awhile. I did the forum (emotional work), I drank chlorophyll, I did Vitex capsules and blackstrap mollasses for a month. Oh yeah. And I master cleanse for 18 days. I also visualized them shrinking and knew they were shrinking. I went to acupuncture 3 times. Ten months ago I had 3 tumors 50mm to 80 mm. My last sonogram was completely normal!!!

LOVE Earth Clinic!
I HAD a 5" tumor, non-fibroid, non-cancerous, in my uterus. My Ob/Gyn suggested a D & C, but I know they can be dangerous and painful. I looked for remedies on the web, and found out that Frankincense is anti-tumoral. I melted Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in a glass jar, added 2 tsp Vitamin E oil, 2 tsp Frankincense, and 2 tsp Tea Tree Oil. I rubbed it on my abdomin 2x a day for the past week. I also found out that making a very strong tea from cinnamon sticks will do a SERIOUS cleanse of the uterus (but will cause a miscarriage if you're pregnant- so BEWARE) and I've been waiting for my monthly to start so I could do that as well. My tumor is definitely shrinking and I feel almost back to normal since starting the oil rub. The tumor was causing me to be very anemic and very weak, but after just 2 days of the oil rub, I noticed a BIG improvement. Taking Apple Cider Vinegar 2x a day changed my monthly cycle from only 24 days (which has been typical my whole life) to a normal 28 day cycle and that's WONDERFUL!

But, this month I've gone 32 days and still no period. I'm wanting to try the cinnamon tea and see if I can pass this tumor, but the instructions for the uterine cleanse was to drink the tea once your period starts. So, I'm not sure what to do...... I'm concerned that the tumor turned loose from the uterine wall and is sitting on the mouth of the cervix and is blocking the flow of blood? Is that possible? And will the tumor become toxic if I don't get it out? Should I start the cinnamon tea without having started my monthly?

Thanks for any help ya'll can give me-Kendra

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Hi, I found this site after being diagnosed with a huge fibroid last month after 6 months of terrible periods. My fibroid was about the size of a softball, I'm 32 and relatively healthy (although apparently very anemic from the fibroid). Mostly vegetarian and try to not to eat a lot of processed foods but I do drink a ton of coffee. I'm terrified of having surgery so I immediately began taking 2 tablespoons of ACV morning and night (I definitely forget to take it some mornings/nights) I tried taking a teaspoon of molasses (blackstrap unsulphered) but I find it upsets my stomach, I'm assuming because I don't generally eat a lot of sugar) but I do take it a few times a week.

I also have been doing castor oil packs a couple times a week and have been taking cayenne pepper almost every day (in capsule form). I tried taking Vitex but I felt like it made me depressed and made me very tired and I broke out almost immediately, I only took it for 4 days though so I did not give my body time to adjust to it so I may try it again.

So I just had my period for the first time since beginning this and there was such an improvement! I didn't even know it was coming and even began to get nervous that I wasn't going to get it but I did and at first it started out very heavy like normal (but with no cramping) but that only lasted for a few hours and then it slowed and by the next night it was completely gone and it normally lasts 5-7 days. I had literally no cramping the entire time, I consider it a miracle. Also immediately after beginning the ACV I had so much more energy. I have no way to know if my fibroid has actually shrunk or not but I do feel so much better!

Stacey, do you know if your fibroid shrunk? I also live in boston area. Had a myomectomy the summer of 2009, had a baby last year and want to get pregnant again and now I have a orange size fibroid behind my cervix. I went for an MRI and saw a specialist and now I'm afraid that I might miscarry if I get pregnant but he said the risk of the surgery outweighs the benefits at this time. I will try anything that might help. I have been reading all the posts. Should I try 1 tsb of ACV and molasses daily or twice a day? any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated. Thx! W

Hi There, I'm 47 years old and have been suffering from very heavy periods. I know you girls know what that feels like the cramps aren't bad, but it's just terrible to never know when your period is coming. I would love to take a trip with my family for March break, but last year we landed and the day after boom-I got my period for 9 days it was terrible and ruined my whole trip. Besides the pill do you have any suggestions on how to stop the bleeding naturally.

Please help

I use to bleed very heavy and some times I think I went three months straight, and sometimes my periods will come thee times in one month and it will last for eight to nine days. And I will bleed a lot thru two pads and I will have to take a bed sheet and tear it and make myself a padding that will try to hold all of that blood. I did not go to no doc because I know that they cannot help me, they will give me pills that will not solve my problam and then they will tell me get a operation and take out my womb. And then they may kill me trying to take out my womb. I do not trust doctors. Because I know women that have this bleeding problem, and some of them end up dying on the operation table. I am telling you that to tell you this, I believe in God and I believe in his words and he say in his words that the herbs are the healing of the nation and I do not believe that GOD give us women a womb to be taken out. The chemicals that mankind put into the animals feed does destroy our health imaging God make male and female to produce a yong one and they having female chicken laying eggs without a cock (male) by just putting chemicals in the feed, and they just produce eggs the chicken, eggs, let's say meat is damaging our body...

Let me tell you what I took to stop my bleeding, cayenn pepper and, black strap molasses, or molasses and apple cider vinegar. I know because I am a living proof of what I write and tell you. I am healed. I do know that this will help.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have had fibroids for about 5 years. The pain during my cycle was incredible. Motrin barely put a dent in the cramps. I have tried the following remedies and found them to be successful to different degrees:

Turmeric capsules - When I take one of these with a Motrin I feel much less pain.

Pommegranate Juice - This juice completely wipes out the pain for me. It does make me a little sleepy so I usually drink it at night or when I can stay at home.

Pistachio Nuts - I know this sounds crazy, but these really help with the pain also. I tried them after I read an article on-line about a study done in Iran which stated that Pistachio's helped with women's monthly cramping.

Green Tea - Really gets rid of the pain. But I am sensitive to caffeine so I can only drink it during the morning and early afternoon.

One more note, DO NOT DRINK COFFEE DURING YOUR PERIOD. I was feeling fine one morning, no pain and then I drank grande latte and within 1/2 an hour I was in terrible pain.

These are my weapons against fibroid pain. I hope they help someone else.

Black strap molasses is a miracle drug for me and my menstral cycle. I buy organic unsulphured (wholesome brand). I take one tablespoon in the morning daily. When I am having a period I take 1 tablespoon every 12 hours... My cycle was last 12-16 days... after the Blackstrap Molasses I am down to 3 days.

[YEA]   Apple Cider Vinegar is the absolute BEST remedy there is for fibroids and bad mentrual cycles! My sister in law is now a true believer too- she was having all the bad symptoms and I told her how to take it and this past month was a LOT better for her! It stopped my heavy bleeding and the HUGE clots I was passing too.

Try this: 1 Tb ACV, add 1/8 tsp aluminum free baking soda and let it bubble up for about 20 seconds. Then add 100% apple juice (as much as you like) and drink it. You'll feel a difference in your PMS symptoms as well- almost no crankiness. I call it my "Happy Juice. " LOL

Hope this helps!
