Hello again. I hope everyone is well or at least headed in that direction. I'm following up from my last post. So, it's been over a month since being on the ACV and Blackstrap Molasses remedy and I was anticipating what my menstrual cycle would be like (that's a first). Typically, it would arrive on the 20th day. Well, it came on the 26th day with no premenstrual symptoms. I kid you not, there was no fatigue, bloating, moodiness, abdominal pressure, NADA! The first day consisted of spotting and no pain. The second and third day were slightly heavy w/ smaller clots and little gushing but not the heavy I was used to. The cramps were very painful though, to the point of having to take ibuprofen. Normally, I won't take a pill for pain unless I can't function w/ the pain. On the fourth day, the flow decreased and the pain lessened dramatically. I am currently on the fifth day and no pain, very light flow. I have to say, I never felt drained for the duration of this period. My stomach/abdomen isn't as tight and full feeling. It can only get better from here on out.

Its only been over a month and I feel like this site has made a major difference in my health and life. I plan on giving it a few more months before returning to my doctor to examine me. Thank you Earth Clinic, you are a blessing!

Hi there!!! After reading all your testimonial about ACV and unsulphured blackstrap molasses.. I convince my self to try.. in fact ACV and BSM, we use it for cooking.

I have cyst and fibroids.. Right now, Im taking apple cider vinegar w/ blackstrap molasses for two days and I notice that I have brownish spot on my panty liner, I was wondering if this is the side effect of ACV and Unsulphered blackstrap molasses?! .. I want to know if this is normal while taking apple cider and blackstrap molasses.. Thanks!

This is a response to Jehd from Missisaugga, Ontario. Hi, you said you have been taking ACV and Blackstrap Molasses for two days and experiencing brown spotting. How much of each of these are you taking? I have found that the dosage can make a big difference. ~River

Hello all. I am following up from my last post which was a month ago. This is regarding uterine fibroids. When I first started I was taking 2tsp of regular acv (it was all I had at that time) with 8oz of water, twice a day for the first ten days.

As soon as I was able, I got some Raw-unfiltered Organic ACV 'with the mother' and took 2tbsp w/ 12oz of water twice a day. Then I decided I wanted to add the blackstrap molasses, so I mixed 1tbsp of Blackstrap Molasses-unsulphured to the acv (twice a day). A week ago, I noticed weird changes with my stool. It became very soft then turned to diarrhea.

I never took this mixture on an empty stomach. I would eat, wait an hour then take the mixture. The diarrhea got to the point where I had to go to the hospital for dehydration. Mind you, I drank of plenty of water but it robbed me of my electrolytes and plain water wasn't replenishing it fast enough -as the doctor put it.

Once they put me on an IV and gave me fluids I was fine. The conclusion I came to regarding my bowels was mixing the molasses with the Apple Cider Vinegar because my eating habits found no possible suspects. What I decided to do was take them separate and see what happens.

Now I take the 2tbsp ACV w/ 1 tbsp honey w/8 oz lukewarm water once a day (in the morning). Then in the afternoon, I take 1tbsp of Blackstrap Molasses w/ 8 oz lukewarm water (once a day). The diarrhea stopped. Thank God for discernment. :-)

With that issue solved, I can talk about what changes have taken place with my menstrual cycle. As I mentioned before, I would get them every 20 days and they would last up to 8 days. Well, today marks the 20th day and I have not had my period yet. Last night I was out having dinner with a friend and I went to the restroom and I was spotting.

So I figured ok, its right on schedule. Well, by the time I got home, it stopped. It was strange because I didn't have the usual symptoms of breast tenderness, headache, bloating, fatigue or cramping; which is typical two weeks before my cycle even gets here. I'm just waiting for it to start and see how that turns out.

I don't know what this stuff is doing but its definitely doing something. I give the ACV & Blackstrap Molasses a thumbs up! Will return to share how the blood flow turns out. Peace and health to you all~ River

Are you taking the ACV and molasses everyday or just during your cycle?

Posted by River (Portland, Oregon, Usa) on 07/21/2012

I have uterine fibroids and I currently take these two but based on my experience, I can't mix them together. They work better for me taken once a day separately. 2tbsp ACV with 1 tbsp honey(for flavor) in 8 oz lukewarm water in the morning. The Blackstrap Molasses, 1 tbsp in 8 oz lukewarm water in the afternoon. I will wait 30 minutes to an hour after eating before taking any of these. Has been working so far.

Hi Ladies, I am 51 and have had severe problems with my cycles for about 5 years. Every year I mentioned to my doctor that my periods where heavy, painful and clotty, I felt pressure on my bladder and in my rectal area. Finally after my last check up on 5/16/2012 she sent me for an ultra sound which I had on 6/14/2012. I have a fibroid tumor the size of an egg in the top of my uterus and 2 small cysts in my pelvic area. She recommended surgery. I felt that was a drastic approach to my problem.

I believe in natural cures and I am so thankful I found this site. I started on _____s ACV with the mother 1 Tbs with 1/4 tsp Aluminum free Baking soda in warm water 2 times a day. I also have been taking Tree of Life Unsulpured Blackstrap Molasses 1Tbs in 6 oz of organic goats milk 2 times a day. I stopped all red meats, wheat, caffeine, sugar. I now am eating a diet full of organic veg and fruits, organic chicken, fish and nuts. Within 2 days I noticed my energy had increased. By day 7 I noticed the tenderness associated with the cysts had lessened dramatically. By day 10 the pressure on my bladder and rectum have abated. I no longer have to wear a pad for fear of leaking. I can still feel the tumor when I lay down, but it feels smaller and not as sore. I have not had my menstrual cycle. It is about 3 days late. I am so anxious to see if it is normal again. I got an unexpected surprise. My hair has starting turning from grey/ white back to the brunette it was 15 years ago. Thanks everyone for sharing your stories and giving me hope. Thanks to Earth Clinic without this site. I may have had a surgery I felt was unnecessary!

Hi everyone, I wanted to give you an update. It has been a month since I started the ACV, BS and BSM. I did my self check today and am pleased to announce that the cervical cyst that I have had since I was 16 is gone!!!! It was the size of a pea and never gave me problems. I can no longer feel the 2 in my abdomen, so I am going to assume they are still there but have shrunk due to my new diet regimen. My fibroid unfortunately is still there, but is smaller, and not as painful. I still have not had a menstrual cycle. I am not sure if this is due to the location of the fibroid or due to eliminating everything from my diet that acts like estrogen in the body. I feel like I am back in menopause again. Hot flashes and sleepiness mostly. If anyone has a cure for these I would love to hear about them.

My energy level is so much better. I have started doing yoga 3x's a week and have lost 12 pounds. My arthritis has improved greatly. I am no longer so sore in the morning that I can't move when I get out of bed.

I have read that many people are having a hard time adjusting to the taste of ACV and BS. I have found the easiest way to take the ACV and BS is in 8 oz of water and add 1TBS of honey. I think it takes like apple juice and is much more palatable.

I will update again in a month and let you know how I am doing. Good luck to you all.

How has your period been my girlfriend just started the Apple Cider Vinegar and blackstrap and has had a week late period and has been bleeding and clotting for 13 days. Is this a side effect of this treatment?

Hello All, It gives me much joy to report that I am on the ACV and BSM regime and IT WORKS!!!! Many thanks to the person(s) who created this blog and took the time to share their information about these two wonderful products. When I first read about it, about a month ago, I figured why not, I didn't think it could hurt, but now I wish I'd known about it soooo long ago.

I am an AA woman, 46 yo with no health insurance and have been diagnosed with fibroids and cysts. I had a fibroid myomectomy (sp) approximately 5 years ago and have been informed that they have returned, mostly on my right side. I am overweight with a history of cancer, hypertension and diabetes in my immmediate family, so time to get to work! I am on an otc iron supplement, I work out and am taking the Apple Cider Vinegar (4 Tbs per day) and Blackstrap Molasses (2 Tbs per day). I've cut back on the dairy, am taking additional otc vitamins and have incorporated shepherd's purse in my diet, not consistently, but in my diet as well. I use the shepherd's purse when I see/think the spotting will begin.

Sooo.... I am currently on my menstrual cycle, I'm on day 3 and my flow has been reduced DRAMATICALLY!!!! I have only had to take 6 pain meds (taking 2 at a time) over the last three days and I can't begin to count the number of pain meds I normally would have taken by now. By now, I usually would have gone thru at least half of a package of SUPER LONG MAXI pads, I've only used maybe 6, no more than 10 so far. I am still clotting, but the pain is MINIMIZED and have not had any MAJOR accidents, some small ones, but that's getting better. I'm not taking the baking soda due to the sodium content.. Don't want to chance it, but overall, I am sooo much better. Thank you so much for the information and will continue to keep you abreast of my progress. Fibroid and cysts removal for all!!!!!

Peace and Blessings, CP

Hi all, I am 27 yrs old and has been diagnosed with multiple fibroids with a couple of them as big as a red plum.. I had this severe pain on to my back running down thru the sides of my thighs and under my abs.. I always had pain during my periods but last month it hit me the worst with 3 continuous sleepless nights.. My husband tried to call after hours doc and they didn't respond.. I felt like I was going thru labour..

It was after this episode of severe pain, while I got a small cramp, I was praying to God to heal me that I googled up for remedies and I found this site. I could not believe the number of testimonials here.. I was so happy to find it.. And went to find the ingredients... Had to search for a while to find Blackstrap molasses.. For all those in Australia.. Try looking for them at health food or organic stores... I found one in a store called The Natural City.. Under the brand name Willowvale organics... I am not having a lot of pain in the last 3 days since I started having it.. But I am scared to death as my next cycle is approaching.. I really hope that this will help me.. As I will be starting to work from next week and it is going to be my probation.. I hope I will not have any problem to conceive a baby which I am hoping to happen some time soon.. I hope all of get better soon and will be able to lead a healthier life.

Thanks for all this wonderful information. I was diagnosed of fibroid 2 years ago and it keep getting bigger and my stomach size it's as if I'm pregnant. I want to try the ACV( which have already ordered online) and blackstrap molasses. My question is which molasses do I need to buy, I saw sweetner molasses without blackstrap is that okay as well? Please, I will be happy if you can help me to clarify this or give me a brand name that I can buy.

Thanks in anticipation of your response.

Hello, I am a 45-year old South Asian woman (not Oriental) who has been on orthotricyclen for fifteen years. Within the last two years my fibroids grew and now they are the size of a 5-month pregnancy. My symptoms are: I get full relatively fast when I eat; have to pee once an hour; and one heavy day in my 4-day period; and slight bulge in my profile. My OB suggested a hysterectomy. I was about to do it and then saw the rate of prolapse post-hysterectomy and that horrified me. That was when I began to look for other ways to lose the fibroids.

On your website I saw the hundreds of testimonials about ACV and BSM and beets so I tried it four days ago (for four days) and I bled yesterday - a full week before my regular period. Mind you, I've been like clockwork for 15 years on the pill. I'm still on the pill and cannot believe I am bleeding (unsulfured BSM). But for some reason the bleeding did not annoy me: instead I was elated, and I felt as if a curse had been lifted after 15 years. I bled about an hour, just a little; then today again I am bleeding a bit. It's not blood blood, but still blood, if you know what I mean.

So obviously this means that my homeopathic experiment can absolutely bust through the synthetic hormones that I am getting through the pill. Now I've noticed on this website that a lot of women who are NOT on the pill are controlling and even shrinking their fibroids through BSM and ACV. My question is, what do I do now? I know that estrogen feeds fibroids but I also see that almost no doctor will say that the pill feeds the fibroids (as you know the pill is a mix of estrogen and progesterone in varying ratios). But I'm starting to think that the fibroids are indeed being fed by my pill; and that they are growing bigger now because I am making less progesterone (as I age and get closer to menopause). I am thinking of going off the pill by first going on a lower dose pill (currently on 35 mcg) and then weaning off that, while doing the BSM and ACV the entire time. I will tell my OB but she's going to freak out, I know it. Especially when I tell her about the BSM and ACV.

Any suggestions?? Anyone know what will happen once I stop the pill? Will the fibroids get really big if I stop the pill?

Hello Maria come off the pills, you do not have to tell your ob, these people just want money they do not care about your health. I was also on the pills and they did not help me. So I stop taking them. And never went back to a doctor. Then I took some cayenne peper and BSM and they stop. And you have to stop eating meat, egggs, cheese let's say you have to go on a diet veg and fruits you can also try the beets and carrots, Blackstrap Molasses and red wine. I wish you wellness.

Hello I am 30 yrs old and just been diagnosed with 1 small fibroid. I have no pain at all just bloating and very heavy bleeding with huge blood clots. I have been bleeding for over a month straight. I would like to know if the ACV and the molasses can be taken straight or does it have to be mixed with water etc?

Mari, basically: however you can get it down!!

Replied by Heather

Hi, If you've been bleeding so heavily for a month then I would advise getting your iron levels checked as this can lead to more bleeding too. If you take 1 tablespoon of unsulphured organic Bsm followed by water 3-4 times a day the flow will lighten. ACV should be taken in water and preferably with bicarb. (drinking through a straw helps) 3 times a day as advised elsewhere on site.

Thank you for your reply. I just got a hold of the molasses, I have the ACV and am wondering if anyone can give me instructions on how to take this stuff and how often? I can handle the ACV straight.

Replied by Heather

Hi, when I take ACV I put about 3 table spoons in a small half glass of water and add about 1/3 of teaspoon of bicarb soda- I drink this thru a straw- adding fresh lemon juice improves the taste. There are better instructions in teds remedies section I'm sure.

This past cycle I drank the following:

I've just started taking 2 Tbls's of BlackStrap(Unsulphured) Molasses with a Tbls of _____s with mother Apple cidar vinegar.

at first I started taking Apple cidar vinegar with baking soda yet the baking soda must be the kind with no aluminun, not your everyday baking soda you can et from cvs or your local market.

you should get the one at whole foods or your local health food store with out alluminum.

I'm on a strict diet of

* No meat including chicken, beef never pork.

* No coffee it makes it worse

* no asparatime or splenda, nutra sweet they cause cancer.

* avoid all white sugar, chocolate, candies

ect. they make your situation of healing your self worse. yeah I knw oh its chocolate or gum or

sweets yet they make it worser for your body.

* No pastries, danish cakes, white flour,

white bread..

anything you eat such as pasta, ect should be eaten in moderation.

I act like I'm stuck on an island and all I have to eat or drink are coconut milk, water, baby coconut is really good to because theres more water in them. I find mine at the chinese market. But thats all I usually buy. I dont eat the fish, or noodles or other foods there because they smell weird to me just my opinion we all have them.

* No Ramen noodles with the spice pack thats MSG

* Chinese food its MSG


maybe selter but with quinine. Not the flavored type. You can squeeze lemon for extra taste. or add a little gin..lol


I make sage drinks with lemondae, honey and sage thats good your fibroids as well. (from back to eden book), or tumeric tea good for the bones.

there inexpensive cheap ways to heal yourself of fibroids.

I'll keep everyone posted on the fibroid remedy I'm trying. Yet my tummy feels a lot better and its shrinking. plus I go for walks everyday and stretch that helps.

Best of luck and a speedy recovery to everyone.

After reading here about Black Strap Molasses - unsulfured and Apple Cider Vinegar - with the mother, I went out and got them both two years ago. I began by taking 1 tablespoon of each mixed together in the morning and once at night. I was shocked by how soon the month long bleeding stopped. I saw improvement the same day. I cut caffeine out of my diet and cow's milk as well.

Now, two years later, I'm not cured but I don't suffer at all like I use to. I just spent my period week on vacation with two trips to the beach like a normal person.

For maintenance, I only take the molasses and vinegar mixed on day one of my period in the morning and at night. The rest of the days are only once at night. My period lasts for about five days and I have a normal 23-28 day cycle.

My doctor told me at my last appointment with him that this was just a "witches brew" when I questioned him about molasses and ACV as a natural treatment. I was scheduled for surgery two weeks after that appointment. I went to Sprouts instead and started that same night. Needless to say, I cancelled that surgery and never saw that doctor again.

If this doesn't work for you, please make sure that you have the right ACV (with the mother! ) and the right BSM (unsulphered). Next, make sure you have made some changes in your diet like eliminating caffeine (25 mg of caffeine now will start my period in the middle of my cycle), limiting/eliminating diary (soy milk is what I drink now).

This is not a cure, but a treatment. It should be thought of no differently than if your doctor put you on a daily pill regime that came with a list of do's and don'ts. The good news is, unlike most medical solutions, this isn't a life-long regime. After menopause, fibroids diminish on their own so you can discontinue ACV/BSM at that time. This is the best $8 investment I could ever make. I just wish I had researched this before my first fibroid surgery that cost the insurance company over $6000 and me over $800 out of pocket.

Better But With Side Effects

I am taking the apple cider vinegar, baking soda and black strap molasses for uterine fibroids, a recipe that I got at this wonderful website, and it is definitely working. Except for one thing, I am getting little bumps on my face, which I never had before and I was wondering which one of the ingredients is giving me this side effects. Has anyone out there have had this experience?

hello there!!!! I've been reading and reading and reading all your posts on this thread for exactly 6 days now. I was wondering if I should tell you my story... At first I decided not to, but then... Well... all of your stories have helped me so much in the past week that I realized that maybe mine will help someone else as well.

So here we go.

I've had fibrosis 10 years ago when I was only 20. I had 3 of them, inside my uterus (sorry, don't know the exact term in english for it) I don't remember the exact size but all together they were almost 500gr.

my condition was very serious, because I had extremely bad anemia (7gm/dl on the last exame they did before I started treatment for it.)

15 days after they found out I had a surgery. My sweet sweet doctor was actually an angel sent from God to help me out, and although the surgery was long and hard he was able to take all of them out and keep my uterus intact. My mom always mentioned to everybody how he talked to me like a dad, and not like a doctor! Well, that was sort of what I needed I guess since I cried every day, every hour during those 15 days. the only time he saw me NOT crying was when he came to see me after the surgery.

the bad news were that the fibroids could come back.

Well... I am pretty certain they did. I haven't gone to the doctors yet because I am recently without health insurance. =( it's always like that right??? something always happens when you don't have it.

but around 7 months ago I noticed how my period flow increased a lot. And also cramps, really painful cramps, and lots of bloating. Around 4 months ago I noticed that the right side of the lower part of my stomach (right by the edge of my scar, of all places) feels a little "harder". That was basically the confirmation I needed. That little Bas*$%ard is back!

I've been considering my options as doctors go and my cousin had a procedure to "remove" hers without surgery in Brazil. I don't want to alarm my family back there, so I've been researching options like that online and trying to find a clinic in my area.

some months things seem to be ok. Not so much pain, not so much bleeding. (more than it was before but still) I'm taking iron supplements to keep the anemia at bay (although I crave ice and cherry tomatoes like crazy) but things have been ok. Just going through WAY more pads, and going crazy with that fear that I'm gonna leak in public (which I have a few times in the past months)

cramps started now a week before my period. Pretty bad ones, and sometimes icant even touch my stomach, can you imagine wearing jeans???? it's very inconvinient and all I want to do is stay home. But I can't =(

i am very regular, can't complain about that... and when I finally get my period cramps get soooo much worse, sometimes it feels like someone stuck a knife on me and is twisting it =(

i have to take medication for pain every 3, 4 hours for a whole week, otherwise I can't function.

but last week, thrusday to be more exact... I woke up and I looked 6 months pregnant. I am not joking.

i am 5'2" and 100lbs. I was all belly. There is no way whatsoever that I could be pregnant so I wasn't really worried about that, but it was weird. I had a huge stomach, soooo sore, and extremely tender boobies. When I googled about it all I found was... "you are pregnant" Well... I know how babies are made, and... Uhmmm that's not happening on my side, sooo no I AM NOT!

so I thought maybe it could be the fibroids (although last time I had really bad anemia and cramps, I never had this bulge. Maybe I didn't notice because I was around 15, 20lbs heavier then (oh what a good mamma's food does to us!!! ) I don't know... so I started looking up about fibroids and found this site.

i got very excited reading all your posts. The good thing about natural remedies is... If you follow exactly the instructions, if it doesn't work, probably won't do any harm. I prefer natural stuff anyways because I hate doctors and medicine and stuff...

i read almost everything. I made sure I got the ingridients right!!! UNSULPHURED BSM... And I also went for the organic ACV with baking soda. Was very careful not to buy baking powder lol

i started with the whole thing that same day, while looking like a 6 month pregnant woman. I took 2tbsp of ACV with 1/4 tsp of baking soda on warm water, then 1tsp of BSM followed by a cup of water (sometimes I drink less than that cause I already pee like crazy... all this water will keep me in the bathroom the whole day.)

i took that around 7pm that night... And I couldn't believe when I woke up... I looked just 4 months pregnant! =P but the best part of it all... No pain. no pain at all.

i wondered if it was like a placebo effect. If after reading all these amazing stories if I was just letting my mind take charge... I don't know... but I kept doing it.

i can only take it 2x a day because it's a bit inpractical for me to carry all that stuff to work. But everyday I felt better, and my stomach was smaller. It's too bad it "grows" overnight but it takes a couple of days to go down!

but it's ok! I'll take anything!!!!

for the first time in my life I couldn't wait to get my period. I just wanted to see how it was... Since it started AGAIN the first day is already very heavy and painful. I can feel it coming full of clots. it's awful, and I know you all know that.

I've been taking this since last thrusdays and... Got my period today. No pain NONE AT ALL! And I didn't even notice until I went to pee. Also very very very very very little. I just changed pads because I always do anyways... but didn't really need to.

as I said I am extremly regular. In my whole life my period had just been late or early 2 times, and both because I was too nervous and excited. So the BSM and ACV didn't change that so far. I was getting it on the 14th!! And 14th it was!!!

i honestly can't believe it. This is amazing. I can't wait to see how next days are going to be... Hopefully will stay like that!

i hate the taste of those things, but like someone said here before, if it helps... I'll take, and smile and say YUMMMMM!

so much better than surgery. My surgery was extremely invasive... Just like a c-section, since the tumors were inside my uterus. the recuperation afterwards was extremely slow and because I work with kids the doctor didn't let me work for 6 months.

i cannot afford it this time.


so I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep taking this. I hope it shrinks the fibroids, but if it doesn't... I hope it keeps them from growing even more.

thank you so much for all your testimonials!!! Your shared experiences have been of much help and inspiration to me!!!

Hi, I was happy to read your post. Do you need to take the ACV every day or just the days you have your period (to slow down the period)? Thanks...

Hi. Has anyone's fibroids actually disappeared after being on the BSM and ACV diet? I am not meaning to sound incredulous. I am very grateful for having come across your website. I just want to make sure that I am getting as much information as possible. Thank you.

Hi Dee. I have read everything on here re uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts, and have never seen one case where someone gave their doctors results after using these things for a period of time. It is too bad, as so many people seem to see positive results. I have fibroids and reoccuring ovarian cysts, and have been using the ACV and BS (apple cider vinegar and baking soda) daily for well over a year now, along with other things, such as organic virgin coconut oil (3tbsp a day in my coffee) and turmeric. I have since lost my insurance, as I would love to go in and have another ultrasound to compare the size of my ovarian cysts and fibroids. I would think it would be very interesting.

Such as it is, all that I can say is incidental - I just FEEL better. I am almost 50, not showing one sign of menopause (yet) and have had NOTHING but female issues since I was 29 - until I started the ACV and BS. I am still not 100% "normal" - but I am at about 80% now. Much better than I used to be.... And not a placebo, or it would have worn off by now. Ha ha. Hope this helped a bit, and I too would LOVE to hear from someone with some hard physical evidence on the shrinkage, (or lack there of) of their fibroids or cysts. Good luck to you, Carly

Well, I found this site last month searching for a solution to my incredibly heavy flow for the last couple of years. I am 45 years old, and the condition was getting noticably worse, heavier and longer.... At time up to 10 days. The last few months, I have to get up in the middle of the night to clean myself, and have blood running down my legs despite my best efforts. Ob/Gyn suggests hysterectomy (too radical), my solution was to check out of life for two or three days every month (so inconvenient). And then my cycle became irregular. 40 days, 19 days, 22 days..... After a lifetime of 29 to 30 day cycle.

I found this site last month, after bleeding through my clothes at lunch. Apple cider vinegar? You are kidding me.... The solution to my problem was right under my nose this whole time? What the heck.... Let's give it a shot. I took 2 tblspoon with water as soon as I was done reading. I promptly fell asleep for 2 hours in the afternoon. When I woke up, my very heavy cycle had stopped. I didn't mean slow down, I mean stopped! I was surprised. And continued taking it. This cycle.... 30 days, no bleeding through, no tender breasts, and completely done after 3 days. I am so grateful.

My 18 year old son with aspergers syndrome said it makes him calmer. Well, let's not argue with success. Funny thing is I have heard of vinegar as an effective aid to weight loss. Never needing to lose weight, I never looked into it any further than that. I cook with and clean with it, so I always have some in my pantry. And as I said.... The solution was right under my nose the whole time! Thank you for putting this site together. I will try adding the black strap molasses.... THAT I don't have in my pantry!

Hi dee x I'm so sorry that you are suffering with Fibroids. I had them myself and all the problems and pain that comes with them is hell! When I had them I got so stressed out by them, I thought the only escape from my suffering was to end it all.

Then behold, I found "EARTH CLINIC". I Then found a lot of people using food grade h2o2, (hydrogen peroxide) to cure so many ailments, I decided to try it. I originally started to drink it (45 milligrams per liter of distilled water). I was also found to have ovarian cysts as well. I Found that after drinking it(sipping it through out the day) it made my teeth sensitive. This doesn't effect everyones teeth that way, I'm 51, so I think it effected my teeth due to wear and tear due to my age. Anyway, some one suggested I nebulize it instead. Then after 3 weeks of drinking it and a fortnight of using the nebulizer, I then went back to see my gynecologist.

After a scan by the Gynecologist, Hoorah! The Fibroids and the cysts were gone!! And this was after being told, I'd only one option, yep, an operation was the only solution, my Gynecologist was amazed and could not understand how my probs had disappeared! Hoorah again!! When I told her, I was given the usual Med heads explanation, that some how I'd gone into remission, huh? I hope this has given you some comfort and peace of mind, and the good folk here on EC, will tell you how they fixed the same probs by using natural remedies from this fab website. MUCH LOVE AND PRAYERS COMING' AT CHA' ANDREA C X X X

hi, I'm a 46yo female from Singapore. Am trying the ACV now that I hope will shrink my fibroids. I have a few fibroids with the biggest at 8cm. Can someone tell me if it's ok if I were to take the ACV and at the same time taking Evening Primrose oil?. Am taking the EPO twice daily for my PMS; I was just wondering if the EPO will interfere with ACV. I really want my fibroids to shrink as I don't want to go for surgery. Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated.

Hi Rjasmin, Yes you can take the ACV with the Evening Primrose Oil. Not a problem. Cheers Lily.

Am glad to say that the ACV is helping me with my monthly PMS and period. For once in a long time I had pain-free period and hardly any PMS. I did not even realized I'm having my period until I went to the toilet. And guess what, I am also losing the extra fat around the abdomen that I had problem wearing my old pants - they are loose now. I will continue to take the ACV; hopefully it will help to shrink my fibroids. Will update again the result after my gynae appt in early Nov. Pray for me ya :)

I came across this site three weeks ago and got excited about the apple cider vinegar and baking soda treatment for fibroids. The science made sense to me so I decided to give it a try. I have been using the ACV and BS three times a day for the past two weeks for fibroids. I have been plagued with flooding (heavy periods)that were ruining my life! I have had embarrassing accidents and have been diagnosed as anemic. I have been in the process of scheduling a uterine fibroid embolization procedure, but decided to try the natural way as I feel a little funny about having plastic injected into my body. I had been given the option of hysterectomy (NO, NO, NO! )which is why I chose UFE.

Anyway, I want you all to know THAT IT WORKS! My period started on Sunday, and for the first time in over twenty years it is light! I flooded for about six hours (this is my first period since starting the ACV-BS program) but when I took a teaspoonful of unsulphured molasses, it stopped within thirty minutes! Seriously, dead cold stopped! Normally I flood for TWO DAYS! My period is light and manageable; instead of six to eight sanitary napkins a day for two and a half days, I am down to three a day! My fibroids feel as though they have shrunk and after the third day on the program I could touch my toes without a stabbing pain on the left side of my pelvis. The heaviness eased after 4 days, the lower back pain eased up by 90% after 7 days, the upper shoulder/neck pain died after one day! I stayed home from school because I did not know if I would flood or not and didn't want to be in public in case I did, but it was all good and I don't feel so afraid to go out anymore!

Hello, I'm back again with an update! I am pleased to post that I have just come off my second period after finding the ACV and BSM thread on this site. Well, I have to say, I have good news! This month my period started with a light flow on the first day, no cramps, the second day was a little more intense with flooding for about four to five hours but I could handle it, then normal flow for the rest of the day, the third day was a normal day and the fourth day I was done! That's right, I have knocked one whole day off my period, it's shorter since I started the ACV/BSM.

Before, I would flood for TWO DAYS and my period lasted for five days. Last month, I flooded for about six hours but it was the first month after starting the ACV/BSM. This month I was pleasantly surprised that my period came right on, no spotting, no cramps and one day shorter! I can touch my toes now, before I would get a very bad dull stabbing pain whenever I bent from the waist, but now I don't so I can go back to yoga now. My lower abdomen has decreased by at least three inches. I believe castor oil packs have something to do with that. I'm a believer, ladies, don't let them cut on you, keep your parts! Tomorrow I have an appointment with my Gyn, I'll give you all an update on what he tells me when I come home.

ACV/BSM is the best thing you can do for yourself, ladies, try it and stick with it, it worked for me, it can work for you!

I'm back to check in for month number 3: I have just had my third period since starting ACV, BSM and BS. Just like last month, I was on for only four days. I did flood for a few hours, but just like last month, I went back to normal later that day and everything went on swimmingly.

Here's why I think some ladies feel they do not have results and become discouraged: I think the reason I still flood, even for a little while, is because of multiple fibroids that are taking time to dissolve. I had a lot of little ones along with the big 2cm one I had, so even though a major amount of fibroids have dissolved, some are probably dissolving slower. But they ARE dissolving, so I plan to keep on with the ACV, BS and BSM. I also dropped diet cola, aspartame and high fructose corn syrup out of my diet. When I drink soda it is only soda made with cane sugar, not high fructose corn syrup because it aggravates fibroids. I have not seen my gyn yet, but will post when I do. Stick with it, ladies, it works. Be patient!! I expect to stop flooding period soon. I am losing weight and feeling much better about myself, so things are good. Good luck, ladies and keep the faith. This works, believe me!

Hello, I'm back! This month I decided to try something a little different. In previous posts I have talked about the six hours of flooding I experience in spite of the vast improvement in the length and quantity of my period. I deduced that the real difference in my improvement had to do with BSM and its Magnesium content.

So I thought to myself, "Self, what if the answer is Magnesium?"I purchased a bottle of Magnesium Oxide tablets (regular plain old Mg) from the drugstore in 250 mg. Strength. I also purchased Zinc Gluconate (regular plain old Zn) in 50 mg. Tablets. I began to take the Magnesium tabs, one tab a day, two weeks before my period. Well, what do you know? NO FLOODING! I kid you not, I did not flood last month! I believe that Mg is the key.

I think that some women need a little more of the Mg than others when dealing with fibroids. I do not worry about overdoing the Mg because it is eliminated by the kidneys and one cannot overdose, so even though BSM supplies Mg, a little help from the drug store or health food aisle will not hurt! So, ladies, perhaps you should increase your intake of Magnesium to help cut that pesky lingering flooding, however temporary it may be. Get yourself some Zinc, too. It won't hurt.

Since ACV takes calcium away, you will find that the additional Mg will help shrink your fibroids faster. I have lost an additional two inches off my waist and lower abdomen since adding the Mg tabs, so there is definitely a bonus in it for you. I feel better about my figure coming back; up to this point I've looked several months pregnant and I feel good about my tummy flattening out. If this keeps up (and I think it will), I'll be back to normal by summer!

So, to recap: Try increasing your intake of Magnesium to combat lingering temporary flooding.

I will be back next month to report on my next period with the Magnesium tabs along with ACV and BSM and post results. I am so happy for Earthclinic, as I like to help people and I hope this helps you ladies out there get your life back and start living again! Stop being a prisoner once a month, come outside with the rest of us, we miss you!

Until next month!

Well, I'm back to report MY FLOODING HAS OFFICIALLY ENDED! In February I noticed my bladder capacity had increased. This told me that the fibroid lying on my bladder had either dissolved or was shrinking. Until then my bladder was not very large so I had to frequently urinate.

I continued with the Mg and Zn, but added Calcium with Vitamin D in March.

This month I once again experienced bladder capacity increase with the added bonus of no flooding. If you've been following me, my flooding went from two whole days down to half a day since December. Now, I don't flood anymore!

This month's period is the first period I have had in five years that I have not flooded. I HAD NORMAL FLOW ON ALL DAYS! I did not have to change pads every hour and a half, but was able to go for four hours without spillage or seepage on the heaviest day of my period before changing my pad.

Nothing leaked, my underwear was alright, I didn't have to change clothing, no accidents AT ALL!

Ladies, you have to stay with it. It is not an overnight thing. My biggest fibroid was 3 cm (2 inches) round. I had at least 12 fibroids of different sizes in my uterus. They wanted to hysterectormize me. I said NO. You must say NO, too!

I dreaded the summer because I knew I would be miserable because of the overflow of blood during my period, but now I feel so much better knowing that the flooding has been arrested and I can have a somewhat more normal life this summer instead of being worried that I've soaked my clothes or that I'll have an accident in public.

It's a matter of patience, ladies. You have to have patience and you must believe you can heal. My body let me know at every turn what I was doing wrong and what I was doing right, and your body will tell you, too. Slow and steady wins the race, girls. Just keep taking care of yourself and stick to your cures, they work, trust me on this one!

I'm a new woman, I can go out in public without worrying, I can go visit my friends more now, I can sit for long periods of time without worrying about leaving a spot if you know what I mean, I'm just very happy right now!

Thank you Earth Clinic for your advice, I am so happy to have found this site. I am also so happy to be able to share and encourage others in finding their cure.

Natural is the way to go, it has been for me and I really hope it is for you, too!

What remedies were you using to shrink or disolve your fibroids? I have several friends who suffer from this and I would to let them about nonsurgical options.

Replied by Carly

Hi San,

The things that have helped with mine are -Unfiltered Apple Cidar Vinegar - 1oz mix in 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda - wait for fizz to stop and add 12 oz water and 1oz Orange juice.

I do this every morning, and when I have my period I do it two or three times a day as it REALLY slows bleeding.

Also, 1 heaping teaspoon (probably closer to 1 tablespoon) of unsulphered blackstrap molassas and 1 tablespoon of Virgin Coconut oil in my coffee every morning. Tastes nummy.

Evenings I take 600 mg Calcium, 600 mg Magnesium, 5, 000 iu vitamin D3, 3 mg Boron, and DIM (you will have to look up what that stands for - DIM balances estrogens), along with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of turmeric and freshly ground (1/4 teaspoon) of black pepper in my tomato juice.

ALL of the above sounds kind of complicated.... But when you have fibroids and ovarian cysts you are willing to do most anything to have a normal life. I now have a pretty normal cycle, and am pretty thrilled that I can actually leave my house during my periods!

Incorporate one, incorporate all.... But once you find what works for you.... you will know it.

Good luck to you!

I was glad when I came across this site. After reading this thread, I immediately order ACV and started using it. I have also been taking lime instead of lemon. I hope this will give the same result. I intend to add Baking soda since I already have some. I went to the store to try and get BSM but what I saw was black molasses and I was confused so I didnt buy it, is it the same thing? I also heard taking garlic and royal jelly helps so I am gonna order some. I intend to treat this thing from every angle till it goes, the hardest part for me is sticking to the diet and the routine of taking ACV, lime etc because I am always travelling. The good thing about this approach is that the its all natural so you cant overdose. Lol

Hello.. I am 47 yrs old and was diagnosed with fibroids about 1 year ago.. My gyno said the only option I had to deal with them was a hysterectomy.. This last cycle I bleed about 8 days, lots of clots and severe cramps.. So I decided to start the ACV and BSM regime two days ago.. I put 1 tbsp of ACV and 1 tbsp of BSM in a cup of red rooibos tea in the morning with a wee bit of stevia and it makes for a tasty tea..... Oh yes, I also quit drinking coffee four days ago and going to cut back on meat products because those that are not organic feed the fibroid growth... I drink more water since I'm not peeing as much now that I've stopped coffee and going to exercise on a regular basis.... I just finished my cycle so I'll keep you posted on how my menstrual is next time around...

@ Artistgirl from Detroit, thank you for posting your information.

Did you not have favorable results? Please continue to share your information it is very helpful.

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

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

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