[YEA] Oh Wow! Finally have found something that stops the extremely heavy bleeding.I have always had heavy periods but in the last 15 years they have got crazy. It's been like a tap. I have been diagnosed with mild endometriosis and small fibroids. In my most recent laparoscopy and hysteroscopy they said apart from those things everything looks OK.
Over the years I have tried tranhexamic acid, mefanamic acid, mirena coil, norethisterone, bcp, and the bleeding had just got worse. Flooding at night and day and not being able to leave the house. My last hospital visit I was told again that hysterectomy is the only choice now. But I have been experimenting with some natural methods. I tried yarrow and shepherd's purse. Some mild improvements but when day 2 of the period came - flooding again.
I came on Earth Clinic and decided to to try black strap molasses and apple cider vinegar. I took them every day for a whole month (both organic and good brands) and then the period came. I was so hopeful but they did not work for me.
Then I saw the cayenne thing. It was worth a try. I just used the tub of cayenne I had in my kitchen cupboard. I took a teaspoon dissolved in warm water with some honey and drank it. OMG - the change was DRAMATIC. Last night I did not need to change my protection in the night - when usually I would change it 3 or 4 times. Today I went out and bought some more cayenne. This is a miracle for me. I am taking it every four hours. I have read up on the internet some articles say that it is a vasodilator - opens up the arteries to allow blood flow - which is kind of not what you would think you want. But other articles say it just 'balances' the blood flow in different parts of the body. This site is so great because it shows what has worked for different people. For some it's ACV and BSM but for me it's cayenne. Unbelievable. My whole world has changed. Thank you everyone on Earth Clinic
