[YEA] My husband told me about Blackstrap Molasses about 18 months. I took a tablespoon of the stuff on a few occasions, but was so challenged by the stuff that I didn't persist with it. In hindsight, I wish I had, because my story would be very different today. 18 months on, with 2 blood clots to my leg because of one of the fibroids pressing against the main artery to my leg, a bald patch in the middle of my head, due to loosing so much blood and poor blood circulation to the extremities of my body, and bladder problems due to another fibroid pressing against my bladder, I visited about 30 websites of the benefits/ warnings of blackstrap molasses.
This website was particularly helpful, as a reader went into great detail about caution with the product. That said, the benefits outweighed the risks, so I started on Organic Blackstrap Molasses about 1 month ago. To take into consideration the warnings from this website, I started on 2 tablespoon of Molasses a day in hot water, but after a week, switched to 2 teaspoon per day in hot water; and have settled for 1 tablespoon per day in hot water. This is in contract with those on this website who take 3 tablespoon full a day.
The first improvement was fnding that I wasn't going to the bathroom as often as I have become accustomed to over the last 3 years of suffering with multiple fibroids (4 to be precise and with my uterus the size of a 4-5 month pregnancy). This single change motivated me to be deligent with taking the Molasses. I have just completed a period cycle. This time, instead of 1.5 extremely heavy days of bleeding in 5, I bled heavily for 1/2 day. Instead of changing every 30 mins on heavy days of bleeding. I changed every 2.5 hours. I did have quite a few clots which I have never experienced before. I was wondering could the fibroids be disintegrating. This is speculative, as I am not medically trained. My stomach didn't expand to twice its size during this monthly cycle, but remained the same throughout.
However, my monthly cycle started 4 days early. I don't actually mind, because of the massive improvement experienced. I have in the past lost 1 pint of blood in one period. This month, it was nearly back to where it was 5 years ago. I am really excited about the results and want to share this with every woman out there suffering from fibroids. This has to work for me as an operation isn't an option, because I want children.
