Hi Ted,

I read with a lot of encouragement your comments on the various health issues, particularly as affecting women's health/fertility.

I have been married for 8 yrs never been pregnant. I had a lap. Surgery for adhesiolysis 2 yrs ago, during which the Dr. Diagnose hydrosalpingx on both tubes & uterine intramural fibroids, later scan showed 1 or 2 of them are calcified. Also I went for a selective HSG afterwards, the one that catheterize the tubes and it was discovered one of the tube is partially blocked. I have been searching for herbal/natural ways of curing my fertility problems, and I stumble on your sight.

I took the ACV/BSM for about a month, and it helped greatly with menstrual cramping & bleeding, but I have been noticing pain and feeling of numbness on my left leg, the fibroid is mostly felt bulging solidly on my lower left, could be its blocking some veins or nerve? Please advise.

I desperately need your help on what can remove my fibroids and restore my fertility, I don't wanna go under the knife, and I want to have kids.

Also please provide answers to the following:

1. Are calcified fibroids dangerous?

2. Can it become cancer?

3. I read somewhere on the net that calcification is the body's way of getting rid of the fibroids, is this true? If yes do I need to do anything about it?

Please help with natural remedies I can take to cure my ailment and help me achieve pregnancy.

I have uterine fibroids that are calcified too. I believe that it is sort of the cycle the tumour goes through when at the end stage it becomes calcified (it has outgrown the blood supply and stops). I went through an awful thing called 'red cell degeneration' and was in the hospital for four days with the worst pain in my life ever! It felt as though being tortured with a knife stabbing into my uterus repeatedly. The doctor told me later that what I experienced was something like a "heart attack but in the uterus... Because the fibroids had outgrown their blood supply. They almost did an emergency hysterectomy but I absolutely refused. I believe I was going through a healing crisis and after the ordeal I felt better and better and it hasn't happened since (2 years now). I try to stay positive in my thoughts about these uterine fibroids..... I imagine the fibroids are these beautiful roses that grew around a cell that was about to give me cancer or something. So these beautiful fibroids protected me... It was the correct response from my body... It did exactly what it was supposed to do.... It means that I'm actually incredibly healthy in my body's response (although I need to continually work on maintaining/improving health with diet/exercise to aid in healing). And now that they are calcified (hardened) they have dissolved that dangerous little cell that they had initially grown around. Eventually the calcification will go away.... It may take years... And that's okay. By the way in uterine artery embolism surgery the same thing happens: they cut off the blood supply to the tumour. In my research, I read in one account that after this type of surgery, a woman had actually dispelled the entire tumour vaginally with contractions and all! Interesting to note that when I was hospitalized with the red cell degeneration, around the 4th day my uterus was contracting! Although I did not dispel the tumour, I think somehow my body was trying to, but they had me on some pain medication that may have stopped that from happening. As for home remedies from dealing with uterine fibroids since 1999 and researching..... Here's what I've learned that you can look up on the computer... These have all helped me (and this is in a nutshell):

1 tblsp. Blackstrap molasses (organic and unsulphured)1 tblsp. Apple cider vinegar and 1tsp. turmeric powder with raw honey in glass of water with juice of raw lime or lemon.


Healthy Eating

No Coffee

The Master Cleanse (21 days I did August 2011)

Water Fasting (only water 21 days back in 2006)

Meditation (Love, light, healing, positivity)

Relationships (get out of toxic ones because of stress on the emotional body.... I had a verbally abusive boyfriend who told me I was "disgusting" because I had "all those tumours inside")..... Hence, I came up with that Rose meditation (visualizing the rose encapsulating the dangerous cell that grew into a beautiful uterine fibroid--thank God it saved my life

By the way take a look at the photos of uterine fibroids online and you'll begin to see the roses I'm talking about. Please don't ever feel "disgusting" or that your body failed you somehow because you have these!

Heres a question that I would love Ted from Bangkok to answer for me. How do I shrink huge fibroids that are pressing on the veins to my legs and put me at high risk of deep vein thrombosis.

According to a vascular surgeon and radiographer, a venogram shows "compression of the illiac venous system" and both he and my gynaecologist reccomend a hysterectomy. My symptoms include leg swelling and cram-like feelings. Other than that, I feel perfectly healthy and am a 'normal', slim 42 year old of afro-caribean ancestry, who wishes to keep her uterus.

5 years ago I was diagnosed with multiple huge fibroids. Other than very heavy periods, I had no real symptoms until 2 years ago when they started causing leg swelling, the diagnosis being compression of veins in my pelvis. As I was at risk of deep vein thrombosis (with 3 emergency hospital admissions), I had uterine artery embolisation a year ago. I can even feel the shrinkage and my fibroids are now the size of a 16 week pregnancy - which is huge, but still smaller than previously.

I live in England and have private health insurance and so have had multiple MRI and CT scans as well as other expensive diagnostic tests to confirm all of the above, and have seen some of the 'best' specialists in England.

I have been trying the sodium bicarbonate and apple cider vinegar remedy (also blackstrap molasses) for 3 months and have far less pain in the legs as a direct result, but I need to shrink the fibroids as I am still at serious risk of deep vein thrombosis. DVT can lead to a sudden death - so this is serious!

Generally, I am healthy, eating a vegetarian diet for 11 years, little junk food, no coffee, exercise twice a week, weigh 58kg (9. 5 stone), usually I am less than 9 stone.

I would love to take my mother on holiday to her home country this summer, but this would mean an 8 hour flight. Long-haul flights and bad circulation do not mix and I have been warned not to do this on risk of DVT. My mother is not getting any younger though, so we may never get another chance to do this holiday together.

Can you give any advise, Ted?

Regards, Miss Diane

Try the Castor Oil Packs recommended in that section or search for info on web. I believe it works. I used it for two weeks and had improved greatly then stopped. Pain returned. If I had been persistent I believe it would have disolved the fibroids or the endometriosis. Whichever you have.

In response to: 06/10/2011 Miss Diane from London, England, United Kingdom. I'm concerned... I've just spent the last three days reading all 8 pages of EC's blogs about fibroid remedies. After all of this research, I came to the conclusion, as most other's have, that the main cause of our fibroids is a result of estrogen and/or our diet. Our diet because of the added growth horomones injected into chickens, pigs, cows, etc. , and as a result being found also in our milk, cheese, yogurt, eggs, etc. Miss Diane, you said that you have been a vegitarian for 11 years, and yet you still developed severe fibroids. During those 11 years, did you eat eggs, cheese, milk, yogurt, etc. , non-meat but dairy items that could still have the growth horomone in them? I'm about to change my diet to organic non-horomone injected meats, eggs, and dairy because of this theory and would prefer to not have to pay the extra cost if there's nothing to it. Please let all of us ladies know so that we may act accordingly.

BTW, I bloged in 2009 that I was going to begin the BSM. I did. The unsulfered kind (VERY important). I used that and ACV. Big improvement, only 1 or 2 days of flooding instead of 7 to 10. However, I've been off of it for a few months and I have been eating very unhealthy. As a result, it feels like my fibroid has grown, a lot. Pressure, pain, peeing a lot, etc. I'm getting back on my regimine tommorow of 1-2 tablespoons unsulfered blackstrap molasses daily, and 2 tabelspoons AVC with 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2 times a day. This time I'm gonna add nattokinase, and start eating healthier.

Here's a tip for taking the AVC. This may sound silly, but, I bought a set of 4oz glass baby bottles for ease of measuring. I take it and pour up to the 1oz line with the AVC (that's 2 tablespoons), then I add water up to the 2oz line, then I add 1/8 teaspoon of no aluminum baking soda, stir with a straw, wait for no fizz, then I add another 1/8 teaspoon of the baking soda, stir and wait for no fizz (if I put all the baking soda at once it will foam over the top of the bottle), then I put the straw behind my teeth (not so far it chokes me) and then suck it down. This way ACV doesn't harm my teeth, and the taste is the most tollerable I've tried with the baking soda. Without the baking soda, I have put the ACV in tomatoe, vegitable, apple cider, or grape juice which is very good. Gotta try the grape. Putting BSM in milk interferes with the iron, and putting it in coffee just defeats the purpose (I don't know, maybe decalf might be ok) but caffine does make them worse. This time I'm gonna put the BSM in my oatmeal. I'm gonna try it in cream of wheat and in almond milk. You have to give the remedies time to work, just keep at it, they're all natural and shouldn't do any harm but only help, not just for fibroids but for all sorts of conditions. For example, as a result of using the ACV regularly, I was able to clean my kidneys and urinary tract of kidney stones (HUGE relief). Good luck to everyone, if we all keep at it and pull together, maybe we can soon get to the bottom of this when no woman would ever have to suffer with this horrible condition ever again.

One more thing, after reading about fibroid remedies again for the past 3 days, reading all about... The fibroids, the gynos, the birth control pills, estrogen, horomones, the surgeries, and the infertilities, it has reminded me of a movie I've seen called "Children of Men" (2006) where all the women on the planet become infertile except for one. Does anyone else see where this is going?

Goodluck and Godbless...

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with a having multiple cysts plus a 6 cm teratoma. They recommended a Hysteretomy but I didn't have insurance. I prayed and prayed and started to use Apple Cider Vinegar with baking soda and natural remedies. I believe God had healed me because my pain was not so severe but I was still not feeling that good. I had some tests done and they found a mass in my ovaries. This time I had it taken care of and only my ovaries were taken out. Now I need to know is there any natural hormones that I can take. I don't want to wrinkle or muscle mass. This is my third week of the operation.

ACV, molasses, beets, carrots for fibroids

My daughter is pregnant and has multiple fibroids. Pain sent her to ER and revealed at approx 14 weeks she has one tumor that is 10 cm. We'd like to know if there is a recipe and mixing instructions that can be sent so she can get relief. On bedrest and pain; prescribed Vicodin. Don't know how long she can hold baby in present state without reduction in fibroids. Need ASAP!! Thank you.

I have read all your posts about fibroid remedies. I believe I have fibroids- well that's at least what the doctor told me. I have been bleeding for a month now and I go through at least 6 pads a day and 3 at nights. Tampons r out of the question cause I have huge blood clots during my period but no pain yet thank god. I'm writing this to find out what can I do to stop this bleeding-what natural foods can I eat rather than surgery which is the only recommendation that the doctors have given me. What can I do what can I eat or any suggestions that u have would be just great thank you. Also I want to get pregnant and I dont see it happening I dont wanna lose faith but I'm running out of pads (trying to be humorous)

[YEA]  for fibroids -stop all microwaved meals or foods. This works and works fast. I did this about 10 years ago and did not have to have surgery. Recently, last year, I got rid of the microwave altogether. I have not missed it at all. Heating up foods does not take that long. Please stop with the micro wave. Thanks

[YEA]  I have wrote several times and have was diagnosed with anemia and fibroids last September. I have tried everything from black strap molasses, to Apple cider vinegar and those remedies have helped. I got an ultrasound in June and my fibroid is still there, it hasn't gotten any bigger though! My anemia is gone, it has been for about 6 months! My Naturopath was amazed that I have kept my iron up for so long. Ok, so this is what I have been doing everyday now for the last 3 months and it has made a huge dfference: I drink Odowalla Superfood green juice every morning. I had read spirulina is good for fibroids and was taking supplements, I believe that works also if you don't like Odawalla. I take Garden of Life Perfect Food Super Green Vitamins, Irwin naturals living green liquid gel womens multivitamin, a B-100, Evening Primrose, and DIM. I read that DIM helps balance Estrogen and since I have been taken it I have noticed a big difference in my cycles being lighter. I was taking vitex (chasteberry). I take iron picolate if my cycles are heavy but they haven't been.

This routine has been so wonderful, my cycles have been light 3 days, and they have been 21-28 says apart. They were 15-17 days and horrible. My anemia was so bad my iron was 29, now it is 42! I got all the supplements at super supplements. The iron picolate I got from my naturopath.

So if you have anemia and fibroids give this a try, also cream of wheat blackstrap molasses and raisins helped when my iron was really low.
I also have gotten off the pill (everything I read says estogen makes fibroids grow) and watch my caffeine and alchohol intake. Good luck ladies! Your body can heal itself, my Dr. suggested a hysterectomy last year, I'm only 40 years old! Thank goodness I didn't listen. I feel great!

Ted: I plan to try your recipe of 2 Tbsp ACV (Heinz) and 1/4 tbsp Baking soda in 1 cup of water to remove fibroids and excessive bleeding and clots formation and severe pain in periods. I have understood that it has to be taken 5 days a week with 2 days off.

  But my query is :

    a) Whether we have to take it 2 times or 3 times a day??

    b) Whether it has to be taken 3 times a day during periods also or stop it at the time of periods? Once Periods are over, start it again??

I have fibroid and I have travelled a lot around in the aircraft. Recently I had blood clot and my doctor suggested that because I sit in the aircratf alot it makes the fibroid to sit on my vital vein and that is why I have a blood clot. It has been treated and my doctor says that since I am 50years old that menopause would set in and and the fibroid would shrink but meanwhile a friend told me of teds remedy and I looked it up but unfortunately I have been using the lime and soda with a few drops of vinegar. What should I do to neutralize it since I have taken too much acid for one month now non stop. Do I start taking only lime and soda and for how long do I have to take it before the fibroid would shrink. Pls tell me exactly how to take the remedy cos am stil on a high dosage of asprin and high blood pressure medication. Does vinegar and lime have side effects and what are they, and how do I use molasses. Please reply urgently. Felicia from nigeria

When the body is sufficiently alkalized, the serum calcium normalizes, causing a reduction in cysts and fibroids. Fibroids are a bit tough since the calcium goes deeper than a cysts and will take some time, sometimes with iodine foot painting now and then might be helpful, such as once a week. Normally cysts takes about a month to reduce or in some cases be gone, as the blood will clear up the excess tissue calcium, thus reducing the cysts. Ovaries and menses can only function perfectly whenever the excess calcium in tissues and glandular functions are reduced.

This can be done by getting the proper alkalization so that glandular functions can function normally, and hence normal menses, as well as normal pregnancy, without the blocked fallopian and uterus problem. Some women sadly can't get pregnant because of block fallopian tubes which can be due to fibroids or somes cysts and the ACV and baking soda may help reduce this blockages, or even a lemon and baking soda remedy will also get similar results.

While the lemon (lime) is more effective on alkalizing and potassium, the ACV is more effective on the body's metabolic rate, and hence some reduce weight is experienced. It doesn't require rocket science to realize all this. Only a good understanding of normal body functions. Ideally the ACV and baking soda is taken 3 times a day, but some people find it more convenient to do it 2 times a day because of the heavy work schedules, or other factors.

First THANK YOU Ted for sharing your knowledge, it is greatly appreciated. I was diagnosed with one large (13cm) fibroid Nov 14, 2008. I totally agree that alkalinity is the way to cure dis-ease within the body. Oxygen is very very important -cancer and disease can NOT live in a body that has proper oxygen.

I know this is scary having something foreign living in our bodies but getting stressed over this will not help it will make things worst. So the first thing to do is take a Huge deep breath and focus on what we CAN do. And it is important to realize that something that took months or years to grow is NOT going to go away by taking something for a week or two.I was told my only option was a full hysterectomy, I am 41 and haven't had children. I totally believe in getting a 2nd or more opinions. (Unless your life is in danger)
Don't be "scared" into getting a hysterectomy it is a major invasive surgery. For some it is the only answer. I decided to seek alternative medicine, focusing more on the mind/body connection. Herbs,Yoga and Meditation can do wonders.....

I believe by cleaning up your diet and exercising we can get a grip on our situation (I am a Certified Wellness/Physical Fitness Specialist and a Personal Trainer). Eliminating as much stress as possible is a necessity. My tumor was found after one of the most stressful times of my life. So it is crucial to evaluate where you are and how you got there. Do you smoke, drink, eat junk all day? I know from personal experience that alcohol can wreck havoc on your system.

Using the vingar and molasses will help IF you stick to it and make it a priority. And yes cayenne pepper does stop bleeding BUT you need to take large amounts which you can get in capsule form, Native Americans have used it for centuries. Also castor oil packs are great. I use a heating pad for cramps.

It is unfortunate that there is so much mis-information out there....But I've believed since day one that having a hysterectomy is not something I want to do. So I will continue to search, pray and follow my intution that there is another way. To all my Fibroid Sisters I wish you all Wellness and Health :) Much Love ~ Christina

Re: Nichole's suggestion. My body does NOT do well without meat. I can do without dairy but I get sluggish, both physically and mentally, when I don't eat any meat or fish. But eating whole, natural, organic foods is crucial. And if a fibroid indicates an overabundance of estrogen, then stay away from estrogen producing foods like soy. Just my experience is all. . . .
Posted by Debra

I agree with Tanya, Nichole's suggestion is good, but not everyone has the access or the money for those choices. Also, everyone's body is different. I tried a Vegan diet and it made me depressed with anxiety and insomnia. I put meat back in my diet and I am much better. Dairy is actually not good for most people (especially those with fibroid tumors) and the Lactose causes the mucus in your body to thicken and your membranes to swell. If you stop eating dairy and substitute coconut/almond/rice milk instead you will notice a significant reduction in sinus allergies and colds. Choose organic whenever possible. Minimize the canned food. There is range-fed beef in stores which is good. Most of the meat in the stores is from animals that have been fed steroids and that is the main thing that is bad for you. Also, there is a lot of Iron in red meat. Eat salmon or other fish which are high in the Omega 3 oils. I read that Flax seed is very good for reducing the estrogen level and therefore good for reducing an estrogen eating fibroid and they are also high in Omega 3 as well. You can purchase flax seed meal at any natural food store or natural food section in a regular grocery store. Mix a tablespoon in juice 3 times a day before meals. The blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar are also excellent choices. Make sure you take plenty of iron, magnesium and B-Complex. Multivitamins are also necessary. Plenty of exercise and time out for yourself is a must. I have three fibroids growing now after have three removed one year earlier. Thanks for all the tips and I am right there with you.

I have a fibroid that has been bothering me. I also got sick w/allergies. I have never had allergies before. I was so full of fluid in my throat and even in my face. It took about 6-8 weeks to get rid of it. So reading your comments, are fibroids and allergies connected? Asking, as I would not have ever come to that conclusion. Thanks

[YEA]   "A year ago during a check up my Doctor was concerned about the size of my uterus. He thought it was fibroids and recommended I see my GYN Doctor. My GYN Doctor agreed that my uterus was extremely large and sent me for a sonogram. I was told my uterus was as large as if I was five/six months pregnant. I did research and saw this site which recommended ACV. I tried taking it but it made me feel sick. I have never been able to digest vinegar well even when it was used to prepare food.

A family friend told my Mom about Chickweed Tea. She had drank it a few times a day over a long period of time and it shrank her fibroids. I starting drinking it but didn't like the taste it wasn't too bad but I starting taking the pills instead of drinking the tea. It has been just about a year later and I just saw my GYN Doctor who was shocked to see how much smaller my uterus had become. I am convinced it was the Chickweed pills. You can get the pills or the tea at the health food stores and vitamin stores. I had also lost 19 pounds since the last time visiting the Doctor and the family friend said it is good for losing weight also. I hope info helps anyone who cannot take the ACV like me.

[SIDE EFFECTS]   "I followed the Vinegar and baking soda for just a day and the my stomach could not take it. It was too acidic for me. I understand the concept of alkalizing the body to deal with fibroids, etc, but then ACV is acidic, not alkaline (unless I am mistaken). Any explanation? After taking this, I have been having burning pain in my stomach that wakes me up in the night (its really bad in the night) and my physician tells me its because my stomach has become too acidic. Maalox, warm water and not having any acidic food is helping me a bit - I am hoping this goes away. In future I would just use tums to get my body alkaline to deal with fibroids.
Posted by Debbie
Melbourne, Australia
Santi by adding the baking soda to the ACV you were making the ACV too alkaline. The stomach acid is The normal pH range for stomach acid is between 1.5 and 3.5. ACV has a pH of about 5 which is less acidic that stomach acid. By adding the baking soda you are further making the stomach acid less acidic. You probably had the pain because your stomach was too alkaline not too acidic and could not digest your food.
Posted by Santi
San Pablo, California
Debbie, thanks for the explanation - so based on what you're saying, the ACV actually makes the stomach less acidic (as it has a lesser PH than the regular stomach acid). It does make sense except for the fact that the only thing that stopped the burning in my stomach was Maalox (which is very alkaline). So I'm kind of still confused...

Hi Guys, For the people that have experienced really positive results in taking ACV w/BS did you stick to the eating pattern that Ted suggested... Eat one food category at each meal as this makes the process more effective or did you just eat as you normally would? As I'm finding it difficult with work and busy schedule to eat this way. Appreciate your advice Paula

Hello, I just eat the way I always have. The ACV capsules are helping. But I found that the iodine supplements I started taking for sluggish thyroid are doing much more. No more heavy bleeding. Very little PMS, and cramps? what cramps? Hope you find relief. Sammy

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Fibroid Tumor Remedy - Tumeric

I found out about 4 or 5 years ago that I have fibroids when having an ultrasound for something else, and over the course of that time my periods have gotten heavier, started having clots and experiencing cramps which I rarely ever got. During the heavy times I would go through a Ultra Plus tampon in 1 hour.

I don't remember if it was on EC or another site, but I read that the heavy bleeding was caused by inflammation (either the Uterus being inflammed or the fibroids)during periods and it mentioned taking Tumeric.

Someone on EC recommended Natto, and I tried that for a while, but didn't notice reduced bleeding. Then I added a sprinkling of Turmeric on the Natto. The bleeding was reduced some, but I thought it was the Natto. I ran out of Tumeric & continued with the Natto and since I didn't seem to be getting great results, and the Natto is 'Natso good' I stopped.

It wasn't until I read the article about inflammation & Tumeric, that I put 2 and 2 together & realized that what had reduced the bleeding when I was eating the Natto with Tumeric sprinkled on it was actually the Tumeric doing it's thing. To be sure, over the last couple of months I've been taking 1 large teaspoon of Tumeric in juice, at least twice a day when my period starts, & it's nothing short of a miracle. Now I can actually get 3 - 4 hours of solid sleep without having to worry about an accident. Before on heavy nights, I would sit up, so I wouldn't fall all the way to sleep, so I could get up every hour or hour and a half to change. During that time if I could get a solid 2 hours of sleep I was estatic.

Other remedies I tried was the Unsulphered Black Strap Molasses. It reduced the clots by around 90% and the iron definitely gave me an extra boost, as the heavy bleeding caused me to be anemic, but it did not reduce the bleeding.

I hope some of you ladies try this and get the results I have. Although it's not a cure, it helps make the fibroid situation bearable. Lastly, the Tumeric is bitter, but well worth the results.

Water and Air   1  0   

Posted by Carmen (New York, NY) on 10/03/2008

[YEA]  I am finding that Water and Air are dissolving my fibroids. Yes, it sounds absolutely ridiculous, but it's true. Twice a day for the last two weeks, I've been standing up against the wall of my studio apartment breathing deeply, doing an exercise from the Book of Internal Exercises by Stephen T. Chang. (I inhale sharply and exhale while maintaining a stiff abdomen.) After the first day of doing this, I noticed my fibroid protrusion was lessened. Also, I've been drinking 5 glasses of lukewarm water a day, sprinkled with a bit of tumeric. The water seems to be literally washing the fibroids away as I notice what looks like to be be pieces of the dissolving fibroid membrane in my stool.

Could it be that water and air naturally contain the enzymes needed to dissolve fibroid membranes if concentrated? I'm becoming a believer.

My uterine fibroid is now 13cm. No diet change, organic food, detox, enzymes pills, TCM per se helped. Last week, I started myself with qi gong and reflexology to tackle stagnation of chi in uterus. I'll allow myself 3 months to gauge results. Hope when I next write in, I'd report good results... BTW, I love this great site for sharing so generously! I am also drinking ACV regularly, and BSM helped with my monthly pain. Thank you so much!

Been 4 months since I've tried qi gong (on and off basis due to hectic work schedule). I find it is helpful in minimizing monthly pain. Had I been more consistent, I believe the improvement would be very much more better. As long as there is very little discomfort each month, I do not care very much if the fibroid is still there. The bulge in my tummy is not really apparent.

Hey there,

Glad to hear all this. I am 29, getting married next month and just recently diagnosed with a 5cm fibroid. I had no heavy periods over the years but just started having major cramps on my right side which took me to the doctor, had an ultra scan done, found out that there was a little cyst on my right ovary and this fibroid. Please, what specific fruits and veggies should I be eating?

My concern right now is am in the process of IVF.... Since doctor had prescribed estrogen pills for this cycle... They have scanned today a fibroid in my uterus muscle... he says its not so big but I want to take care of it naturally if there is a way.

My question is Can I take blackstrap molasses when my embryo is getting implanted and when I get pregnant to cure this fibroid. Can I take apple cider vinegar everyday twice... IF so what would the dosage be.... Past period was really really painful like hell I didnt want to take painkillers as it would only harm my body.... Am getting totally stressed with this issue...... I really want some natural cure.... Thats why I was browsing and came across this wonderful thread.... If I can take all this alongside my pregnancy it woud be really great but am not sure..... Pls advise..... as I dnnow if my Doctor can answer this qs.

thanks ladies, Sona

I took BSM during pregnancies with no ill effects. 1 tblsp a day in hot water with ACV, the advice is to start with a tiny dosage. Maybe 1/2 tsp. Or less, once a day, and after a few days, twice a day. but I am wary of going over that amount even not during pregnancy.

Hi Simi, I don't like to say what you can take when you are pregnant because it is a very unknown area for most things, but black strap molasses and apple cider vinegar are both kitchen remedies and I would suggest using them lightly, maybe a teaspoon of BSM a day and a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in water per day. That would be keeping well within what could possibly be in a recipe for cake for example and you would be able to eat cake. (I wouldn't haha! ) Hope this makes sense. Cheers and good luck, Lily.

Hello, I have read so much about your formula and would love to give it a trial. I have been diagonised with fibriods (4) in my uterus and womb and would seriously want to get rid of them. Kindly guide me on how to use the Apple Cider Vinger ans Baking Soda components to achieve the best results. Thank you. Mary

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]   "I am 54 years old and was diagnosed with subserous uterine fibroid by August 2013 and the size was 7.72 cm x 5.56 cm x 7.88 cm and doctor recommneded an operation to remove my ovary because I had experience difficulty to urine twice almost within 2 months.

I refused to do so and start googling to find is there any way to shrink it naturally. Since that time, I went on diet to cut out meat, soy products, carbs, white sugars, avoid plastic bottles and containers etc. I drank more on organic fruits and vegetables juices. I drank aloe vera juices, apple cider vinegar and lemon juices in the morning on empty stomach, exercises on daily routine ( brisk walking, yoga, belly breathing, hand swing etc ), get morning sun and meditate with visualization. I also drank turmerric powder in the morning.

By June 5, I went to have usg and the result is amazing. It shows a sign of shrinkage. the size is now 6.02cm x 5.59cmx 6.65cm and the doctor asked me what I was doing since it has shrinked to smaller size and said no more operation needed. I told her what diet I have been undergone and she was surprised.
