[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] Well, I have to say that I was not a FULL believer. I suffer from fibroids and I was just sick and tired of talking to doctors who give me my "only" options.. which all included surgery and menopause. I am 42. I do not have children and it has been the bane of my existence. So, after visiting the doctor, a specialist, who advertised fibroid assistance. I left the office disgusted! Once again: "you can have surgery or we can put you into menopause. We don't do anything else here. But, we will write a prescription for an MRI so that we can judge the size of your fibroids." I was furious! Not only did I waste a day off from work, and my $30 co-pay, after traveling 2 hours to get to the "specialist", I wasted my time? So, as soon as I came home I started reserching holistic approaches. I found blog after blog where women were claiming the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) as some type of cureall elixirs! At this point what did I have to lose? So, I ran out to the healthfood store on the other side of town and I purchased Organic ACV and Organic unsulphured BSM as recommended on the sites. That was 14 Jul 09.
So, my situation: Fibroids! HEAVY HEAVY menstrual cycles with lots of clotting! So, heavy that my 2 hour commute to work had become a true burden, because of the fears that I would not be able to make it to a bathroom in time to change or clean up. I could tell some pretty horrific stories about that too. And the cramps!!! YIKES!!! The first time I experienced them I was in my 30s. This was all a shock to me. I had never known so much pain and discomfort before. EVER!!!
So, again, here I am on 1 Aug 09, 15 days after taking 1 tbsp of ACV and 1 tbsp of BSM every day once a day and I cannot believe that my cycle has caught me by surprise. I mean NO CRAMPS!!! Minimal.. and I mean MINIMAL discomfort. I mean, I have not taken ANY painkillers yet and today is the first day. Usually, I would have started 3 days ago.
Now, I will say two things, some sites recommend mixing the BSM and ACV in water! Personally, I think that is a terrible idea.. I tried it in a 16.9oz bottle of water...it only prolongs the terrible taste of the ACV.. and ACV and BSM do not mix! lol. Definitely not together. But, the BSM was easier, I take 1 tbsp of ACV and then, add the BSM to my morning cereal, or yogurt or morning smoothie. I find more interesting ways to enjoy the BSM. I am still working on the ACV.
So, I will keep everyone posted on what else happens for the next two weeks.
By the way I am also a new vegetarian. I heard that products of hormone treated animals is not good for fibroids. It only "feeds" the fibroids. So, I figured I would try it for a year. So, I eat seafood, and dairy products. I just look for dairy products of "clean" animals.
Wish me continued luck!

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] I have been using the BSM and ACV baking soda remedy for about 6 weeks.Out of that 6 weeks i have been bleeding for 4, not always heavy but heavy in the last week .My stomach is not as hard and bloated as before, my cramps are less frequent and not as painful. I could feel the fibroid and it does seem smaller but I have very little energy and am so tired of the bleeding I am thinking could surgery be so bad....in spite of watching Suzuki's documentary called Sex,Lies, and Hysterectomies!
since it has been 10 years since i first noticed my fibroid I know it may take a long time so I am trying to be patient. Next I will add the mineral packs to my regime and see how that goes.Maybe i have had the fibroids too long!Replied by Keke

[YEA] I started using ACV just because I read that it was good for you. I had no idea it helped your cycle or fibroids. I discovered that on my own before I found this website. It should be organic with the "mother of vinegar" in it. This is the ugly looking stuff with little strings floating around in it. Otherwise, it serves no purpose other that salad dressing. My cycles were less painful. However, once I stopped drinking it, the pain returned. So, I am back on it and adding molasses this time. For people who say it's not working, make sure you are using the correct form. I do not know the size of the fibroid the Dr says I have but I know ACV has helped me.Posted by Wendy (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada) on 11/27/2008
I have been using APV and BSM for about 8 days to trat what I believe are large fibroids. I also have pain in my upper right abdominal quadrant that seems to be gas because i get relief from gas relieving meds.
Anyway, my skin feels great but I still feel not so great. Rashs, itching etc. leaves me to think I have yeast issues as well. Long story short I mistrust conventional medicine and pretty much self diagnose when possible. New symptom to report is white froth and what looks kind of like cream in my urine.
i am 49 yrs old and have peri menopause, last period lasted 3 weeks with heavy bleeding for at least a week. My symptoms are keeping me home bound and usually experiencing some varying form of pain and discomfort. I hope and pray i can improve my health somewhat with the natural tratments on this site. I took 2-3 tblsp.each of ACV and BSM , yesterday i added 1/4 tsp.baking soda and started doubling my ACV treatment, once in the morning, once in the evening. Let you know if anything seems to be working.Replied by Michelle
