Blackstrap Molasses   28  7   

Posted by Lanena0413 (Buffalo, Ny) on 09/22/2009

[YEA]  I am 31 female, went to the doctor and was diagnosed with fibroid tumors. I knew that I had some problem in my lower stomach because I constantly had pain when my stomach felt full. The first day of my period always was rough. I don't like surgery, so I went online looking for some natural remedy. I started trying the unsulphur black molasses (1 TB), a little hot water and soy milk. After trying this once daily for two months, the pain has been gone. My periods have become normal again. This also has given me more energy and feeling of less stress.

Blackstrap molasses for fibroids/fibroadenoma: I have read that one should avoid sugar in case of fibroids then how safe is it to take BSM?? I have multiple fibroids in my breasts so am looking for remedies. Also should i avoid potaoes and rice? ?actually doctor has suggested that, but its quite hard to do that

Hello. I have a question about the dosage as they seem to be varied. Do MOST people use one TEAspoon or one TABLEspoon? Also, are you guys taking it everday or only before and during your cycle? Finally, how do you know when to stop; is this intended to be a regimen until menopause? Thanks!

Hi, it's tablespoon just before and during your period, some people take as much as 3 tablespoons a day. You need to drink a lot of water with it. I think it's best to then take a teaspoonful or something throughout the rest of the month but it can be challenging as it's not necessarily the easiest thing to take. As to when to stop it's up to you to try and see how it helps you I read an old book which claimed it cured you of fibroids eventually but it would be best to combine it with other therapies and try and establish the cause.

If you read the fibroids posts or google fibroids here there is lots of information. I'm always interested in this as I am similar, I would like to know what it is in the Bsm that helps us, we know that iron helps the anemia which can inturn lighten flow but also I think the copper in it helps reduce the fibroids. It's interesting that peple who take the contraceptive pill have relatively high levels of copper and don't suffer from such uterine issues. Iodine ( lugols) really helps too but it's gradual not instant like Bsm ( google this)

Hello. I am a 51 year old not yet in menopause woman with fibroids, and ovarian cysts.

I take one full tablespoon of BSM in my one cup of coffee every morning for over a year now. I do not find it hard to take at all. In fact, if I make iced tea I use it as a sweetener in that also. I love the taste of it. (I didn't at first, but it really is an aquired taste. Keep at it, and you will start to like it! )

I use it every day, and find that it helps me a lot. Not sure if it is the iron, copper, or one of the trace minerals. I just know it really helps! Good luck to you.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Hi! I've been reading about the Unsulphured Organic Blackstrap Molasses for Fibroids. I'm not sure how it works so I decided to give it a try. I have been taking 1 tablespoon of bsm with soya milk in the morning since Monday morning until now. I was feeling more energetic at first, but there is a few problems. All of a sudden I was bleeding on Tuesday morning. I try mixing it with water only. but it's no used either, so I decided to quit the bsm. It can't be my period, because it ended 1 week ago. My stomach got more bloated, plus I was having a headache. I stop using the bsm on Friday morning. I felt much better. My stomach wasn't bloated and my headaches went away, but I'm still bleeding. I just hope it stop bleeding. I drank some Raspberry tea to decrease the blood flow. Anyway, thank you for the bsm information.

Soya contains estrogens. Its not good for people with fibroids. Fermented soya (natto) on the other hand is better and can help with fibroids.

jennifer from new york, stay away from soy period. Causes estrogen and will make ur fibroids grow. Try serrapeptase this shrinks fibroids and maca. maca will help regulate ur periods and fibroids too.

Blackstrap Molasses CURED my heavy bleeding from Fibroids......When I tell you this is a MIRACLE, I am not kidding. Although my symptoms were not nearly as severe as other peoples', they were still severe to me. I was diagnosed with fibroids in 2002 but only had occasional heavy bleeding so the Dr. told me to do nothing. I had no cramping or anything but within the last few months, I would get one or two days out of each monthly cycle where the bleeding was UNGODLY.....I read somewhere that it was called "flooding" where the blood would just pour out and the clots were never-ending. I would have to keep changing clothes due to the blood leaking out all over the place for 24 hours straight......I knew about the blackstrap molasses and had taken it previously for anemia but stopped for some reason. Any way, last month in the midst of the flood of blood, I took a tablespoon and I swear, withing 5 or 10 minutes, it stopped......later on that night, it seemed like the flooding was starting again so I took another tablespoon and it stopped it dead in it's tracks AGAIN. So this month I decided to take it right when the period started......this is the 3rd day of the cycle and I have been taking it 2 times a day and yesterday I took it 3x......basically every time I felt like it was starting to get heavy and EVERY time it stopped DEAD! This stuff is an unbelievabele and I want the world to know! Anyone can e-mail me with questions if they like.

Posted by BlessedNick (Miami, FL) on 05/20/2009

Can anyone tell me the formula for using BSM to shrink fibroids? or of any other really effective remedies? I have fibroids the size of a 5 month pregnancy. I would like to shrink them naturally instead of having a hysterectomy. I have read so many things and I am very confused on what works. Thank you for your help and God Bless you.

[YEA]  Fibroids and Black Strap Molasses:

After reading the success other ladies were having, I dediced to try BSM for my Fibroids. The last 2 1/2 weeks, I have been taking Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses first thing in the morning. I take a tablespoon, mixed in about 2 ounces of hot water and about two ounces of 2% milk or soy milk. My cycle started Monday and I am happy to report that I did not cramp for two days like before. I only cramped for a short time the first day. I had one heavy day and did not pass any clots at all. Today is my last day but I'm barely flowing.

Posted by Gloria Freeney (Rowlett, TX) on 02/01/2009

Hello! My name is Gloria Crawford Rowlett, TX, I am 44 years of age, I have been diagnose with uterine fibroids since 1996. As of Jan 2009 I went in for a yearly check-up at my OB-GYN and she stated the fibroids has increased in growth from 6cm to 8cm. I went to the Herb Mart and I was told about the BSM cause I was also told my blood iron was reading 35 which I wasn't yet on the border line of anemic yet, cause border line is 33. The OB-GYN stated I should be taking iron supplements everyday and I explained to her I can't take the iron pills, cause it makes my stomach hard and constipated. The OB-GYN stated she still recommend that I take the iron capsules everyday. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and thats when I was told to take BSM which I started taking since this week 1/29/09. Please help me out with this, my doctor has prescribed me with the birth controls since last year which has slowed my bleeding down a lot. My question is should I stop the birth controls while taking the BSM and how much BSM should I take daily. I was told by one of the specialist at the herb mart to take 1 tblsp twice a week.

Sincerely,
Freeney

Most people take Blackstrap Molasses everyday myself included and twice a day during my cycle.

[YEA]  I have fibroid tumors, heavy clotting periods and anemia from this. It was horrible every month. I am 49 and every year for the past 5 years my doctor would say "they will disapear when you go through menopause" So my life isn't important now??? I found this web site and read about the Black Strap Molasses. I was sceptical, but was eager to try anything. I put a tablespoon with instant oatmeal every morning. I just had my first cycle since trying this. OMG it WORKS!!!!! No heavy day with clots!!! I can't believe it. I am so excited to tell everyone!

Hello Ladies, I'm now 54 and 4 years ago began menopause, not one period since then. Yeah!!! I used to have problems with fibroids and still have the fibroids but no problems unless I dont listen to my own adivce. I wanted to share what was reccommended to me by a holistic Dr..... Change your diet!!! Chicken, meat and eggs are coming from animals injected with hormones and these same hormones are feeding your fibroids and helping them grow. Have you seen how big chicken wings are now days!!!! Hormones! When I used to have myperiod I had huge clots ( like liver and onions) but when I changed my diet , it all got much better, no clots, no cramps and I felt much better. I still love chicken but now I buy it from Whole Foods and buy cage free eggs , the extra money is worth the freedom to be able to eat and be pain free. Ive shared this info with some friends and it has helped and I hope it helps someone out ther too. I chose this option because I dont want to have a hysterectomy. God Bless us all, we go through so much at least give us our chicken!!!

If like YEA has shares in BSM as she seems to be the only one saying how good it is. I have used it and it doesn't work, it's like eating sugar. I would really appreciate it if anyone had some genuine remedies as I am also suffering. I have had embolisation but this was unnsuccesful.

Hi. I am battling with fibroids too. I found out taking seven seas oil reduces blood cloth and heavy bleeding. For those who are unsure about blackstrap molasses. They increase your energy level because of the sugar content and they are also good as a source of iron. I felt better after taking blackstrap molasses in terms of energy levels, I still take it now and again.

[YEA]  I am 51 years old and for the past year I have been experiencing very heavy menstrual bleeding.February 29th I was taken to the hospital by ambulance due to how heavy the bleeding was. I was diagnosed with anemia and the ER doc did see something resembling a cauliflower growth on the cervix. I am going to be having pelvic ultrasound and probably other tests this week. During the lapse of time between that ER visit and this apppointment next week I have been out of state taking care of a sick parent and put off tests which I know is bad. I found this website when trying to figure out what I can do to get the bleeding under control until I this is diagnosed. I have been taking 1 tablespoon of unsulphured blackstrap molasses per day from the day my period ends until 10 days beofre another one is due to start. At that point 10 days before and during the period I take 1 tablespoon in the morning and 1 in the early evening. I take it straight and just drink lots of water after. I am pleased to report that the bleeding is probably half of what it was. I have had two realatively easy periods now. The only down side I can report is that my stools are slightly loose and very black by the time I have doubled that dose for 10 days. I am assuming this is from the mineral content. My stools return to normal as soon as I go back down to 1 tablespoon. I would also like to add that long before my periods became so problematic that I had become housebound for the duration I had seen eraly symptoms that there is something wrong. Three years ago I started to have night sweats. Over a period of 3 years I lost 10 pounds without trying. My body composition changed dramatically from very muscular to flacid. I went to my physician who ran tests and found nothing to be wrong. In the years to follow I was going through a very difficult time in my marriage and the stress was unbelievable. I develped a tic in my eye, I started having anxiety attacks. I have had mysterious aches and pains all over and finally my periods became very heavy. I sought help from physicains 4 times over a period of 3 years and all 3 physicians thought I looked too good to be sick and ran just a few tests which did not show any problems.They concluded that it was due to the severe stress and suggested leaving the marraige and getting professional counseling. I know my body and my intuition was telling me there is something wrong but I ignored it probably because I wanted to believe the physicians were right. Now I hope this is not cancer and strictly due to either perimenopause or fibroids. I have periods every month right on schedule every 28 days.

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with uterine fibroid cysts in Feb. of this year. I decided to take an active role in my health and see what I could do to shrink them(or get rid of them entirely) naturally. My doctor didn't want to do anything about them because I'm 48(he's hoping since I'm so close to menopause they will take care of themselves)and other than some heavy bleeding a day or two of my cycle(which were 9-16 days by the way) I wasn't having any problems, so he just wanted to "watch" them. Watch them do what? Grow?What if I'm NOT close to menopause and I'm one of those women that has a cycle until I'm 55?(It does happen). No thanks!!! I came across this website and decided to try Blackstrap Molasses. It has been a miracle! I have only been taking it for two weeks(one Tablespoon each morning) and my oh my what a change! I had noooo PMS(even my sister noticed I wasn't as grouchy), very little cramping, no bloating, normal bleeding, and noooo clotting! A happy side effect(if you can call it a"side effect")is that my skin is as soft as a baby's bottom. I can't wait until I go back to my doctor next year and he finds NO fibroids! Oh, and I'm not sure, but the few gray hairs popping in around my temple area appears to have slowed.I will take BSM for the rest of my life! I will get back to you after my exam next year!!!!

The Blackstrap Molasses and Cider did slow/stop the bleeding for a day or two, but it would return there after. I tried Saw Palmetto 2 times/day followed by the BSM and Cider and the bleeding has stopped, but reoccurred. The latter method is causing my cycle to become more "normal". The fibroid has shrunk, and the 'jury is still out' as a cure. So far, I'm more satisfied.

I was the 16-18 day period and at first the black strap molassses just slowed the flow. I discovered if I take 1 tablespoon everyday and 2 tablespoons during my cycle the cycle only last 3 days!!!! Nothing for the gray hair.

[NAY]  I had used molasses for uterine fibroids. But unstead of lessening my bleeding I bled much more. Infact I had to take medication to stop this heavy flow . I would like to iquire if molasses thins the blood. Please let me know --or may be it was due to some yoga exercises.

you must take unsulphered blackstrap molasses, sulphered bsm makes you bleed. ive been taking it for two months now and i have more energy and no fibroid symptoms but i have lost my appetite and lost weight i think it is a miracle food. ive now added acv but cant see any difference. 1tbs in am 1tbs in pm.

[YEA]  I sincerely believe that a vegan diet works combat fibroids. I have just started the vitex or chasteberry but have been using normal molasses for quite some time. I had no idea it was useful for shrinking fibroids because I use it to detoxify. A level tbsp. in a glass of hot water first thing every morning. I just have one or two heavy days and I feel more energetic since using the molasses because of the iron content. Also, my breakfast consists of oats, almonds, grounded flaxseeds,raisins etc.

I just bought a great book for women with Fibroids. I was written by a doctor who has fibroids. It is called FIBROIDS-The compltet Guide To Taking Charge Of Your Physical, Emotional, and Sexual Well Being. Author:Johanna Skilling.

In this book they DO have a list of herbs known to help Fiorbroids and a list of some women with fibroids should NOT take: Blue and Black Cohosh, Chaste tree (Vitex), Dong Quai (also called Angelica or Dang gui), Licorice (the herb not the candy) and Mother Wart are no-no's for firoids. These herbs can make bleeding worse if you have fibroids and/or cause the uterine cells to divide (creating more fibroids) and can cause high blood pressure if taken for long periods of time.

The GOOD NEWS is there are herbs that this medical doctor and others have researched and have been found to work well for women with firoids"Beth Root (for bleeding control), Black Haw (to detoxify) Cinnamon (for bleeding) Cramp Bark (for cramping and bleeding control), Dandelion (to detoxify), False Unicorn Root (for bleeding control), Garlic (to shrink fibroids), Ginger-Hops-Partridgeberry-Raspberry leaves ( for cramping control), Shepard's Purse-Wild Yam-Partridgeberry-Nettle-Lady's mantle (control bleeding) and YARROW herb shrinks fibroids-controls cramps AND controls bleeding! This list doesn't have EVERY possible herb for every symptom but reflects information from several sources,including NATURAL HEALING IN GYNECOLOGY by Rina Nissim; THE COMPLETE WOMAN'S HERBAL by Anne McIntyre and the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF HEALING THERAPIES by Anne Woodham and Dr. David Peters. REMEMBER some plants (like ones I just listed not to take)have an effect like estrogen, others mimic progesterone-Fibroids get bigger and bled more as a result of either estrogen or progesterone, so be prepared to watch your symptoms. Some SAFE herbs for women with fibroids are listed above.

I am trying to have another baby, and after finding the website I decided to try the molasses to see if it will shrink the one very large fibroid that I have. I have been taking one teaspoon for about a week now, and I notice at night I have been having cramps not sure if its because the tumor is contracting or what. Any advice would greatly help. Thanks!

[YEA]  I have been anaemic for the past fifteen years and severely anaemic for the past six months. As I am 55 and in the midst of the menapause I just assumed that I was out of condition and overweight. I couldn't walk up the stairs without being out of breath. Last year on holiday in Florida, I was seriously considering hiring one of the electric scooters to get around the parks. My husband who has spinal arthritis and cannot walk unaided got around better than I did! I have suffered from fibroids for several years and last month my haemaglobin level was 6. My doctor wanted to take me into hospital for a blood transfusion. I said I would try the iron tablets first and see if they would help. I had a scan to locate the fibroids and discovered that I have several and an appointment was made for me to see a gyneacologist on 3/12/08 which I will attend. In the meantime I have been looking for possible cures on the internet and found your site. I have started taking BSM in capsule form because of all the positive feedback from other ladies who suffer as I do. One lady said she could feel one of her fibroids through the wall of her stomach, so I thought I would try to feel mine and sure enough, my husband and I felt one just below my navel. Today, 2/23/08, I cannot feel anything there! It has given me hope that this treatment will work and I will tell the GYN that I want three months to see if the BSM works. If the scan shows the fibroids are still there, I will have to consider an alternative cure but I am confident that the BSM will do the job! Will keep you posted!!
