I just wanted to say how truly amazed I am. I just started to take Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) on Friday, Oct 9th and I'm really impressed with the outcome. I've suffered with heavy bleeding for a few years now due to fibroids. It has caused me to be severely anemic and fatigued. A few months ago it was so bad I needed a blood transfusion. I was heading to work last week and I was searching for remedies for heavy bleeding and found this website Earthclinic. I read every single comment about BSM and said I will definitely give it a try and let's just say I am not disappointed. I thank God for leading me to this website and also thank all the ladies who posted a comment. I wish you all the best and I will repost again shortly. Peace and blessings!

Every month I was faced with extremely heavy flow. I'd normally bleed for 7 days and was super careful of how I planned the days that I knew I'd flow the heaviest -in order to avoid super embarrassing incidents....

I read about blackstrap molasses on this site and decided to give it a shot. I figured even if it didn't help reduce my flow- it'd help keep my iron levels up as I've battled anemia for decades..

Well, I started about a week before my period was due-with a tablespoon twice a day mixed into hot coffee or tea in the morning and at night. And once my flow began I noticed it was considerably lighter in volume. I was quite happy with that! But lo and behold- it stopped completely after just FOUR DAYS!!

I'm sooo happy to have found this remedy!!! I tell everyone that'll listen -try blackstrap molasses for monstrous menstrual flow!!

Hello I am AKM from Atlanta, Ga. I have been bleeding like crazy during my cycle for like 5 year. I tried the molasses this go round and was shocked to find a normal period though it lasted 7 day on the nose. My question is does anyone know why this stuff works? I am asking because I feel little strange. I have some cramps here and Im a little tired. I do suffer from anemia also. But I want to know what happened to all the blood and clots, are they still in there or did the molasses cause it to be reabsorbed or what. Because I started it just a few days before so im sure all that store of stuff was built up and ready to go. So where did it go?

Like almost everyone else at first I was a little skeptical on trying this, but my periods have been out of control my whole life. I am 28 now and if I am not on birthcontrols I would probably bleed for 4 months straight. But even with the birthcontrols it only usually makes me stop bleeding for 2 weeks if im lucky, heavy and sever clotting from beginning to end changing a Ultra tampon every hour and close to causing an accident everytime. So I kept doing my research and found out about the blackstrap molasses so it didnt hurt to try especially costing less then 4 bucks here in NY. I started taking it twice sometimes 3 times a day when I had those heavy days that I could barely get out of bed. I also drink raspberry leaf tea 2 times a day with it.

To my surprise by the 2nd day on it my period started getting a little lighter by the 4th day it was gone. This has been the only remedy that has been able to stop these ever lasting periods and I live by this now every menstrual cycle. I currently started my period 2 days ago so started taking both again today. lets see how long its going to take to stop because my birthcontrols have not given me a period in 3 months so this is going to be a bad cycle this time.

MIRACLE!!!!! I have suffered from heavy menstrual cycle for nearly 4 years. After having normal. Very light 3 day periods my entire life, living the last 4 years, basically hemorrhaging every month was hell. I was diagnosed with anemia and told that I need a hysterectomy. Not a fan of doctors or surgery, I was desperate to find a natural cure. The day I found this site, I went to the health store and purchased Organic unsulfered Blackstrap Molasses. My bleeding slowed withing 24 hours and completely stopped within 48 hours!! I did not have a bleed for another 28 days. My first period after starting my BSM regime (1tbsp in am & pm) only consisted of one heavy day and a total of 4 days and NO blood clots!!!

Prior to this, I would go sometimes 3months without stopping. In addition to that, I would horrible embarrassing accidents and often could not leave my house. This is a miracle cure for me. I have recently started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and between the two, I haven't felt better in years. Thank you all for your testimonies...... You saved my life!!!

I was having heavy bleeding w clots soaking thru super plus tampon every hour and a half. I saw post about organic unsulphered black strap molasses went to health food store to get some. Took a tablespoon, it worked right away, the next tampon change was less than half the amount and continued to dwindle. I am going to take a tablespoon before bed as recommended. The only other thing I did was relax, feet propped up and did 15 min ice pack on abdomen once. I will be telling everyone about this remedy for sure!

After reading about Blackstrap Molasses for this I decided to give it a try. I do use natural progesterone cream but may stop using it if this works. (Yes, I have heard it can cause fibroids to grow, but it helped me with night sweats etc. ) I have had terrible periods for years where I am actually down for at least two days. Cannot work etc. Forget any functions with family. I had to miss my Grandson's 6th birthday last year because I couldn't leave the house! Miserable non stop bleeding and clotting. Very draining. Kind of feel like I am outside of myself due to all the pain and blood loss.

I tried Blackstrap Molasses one tbs a day prior to this last period and I have to say I am totally shocked. By the second day of my period I am out of it, but not this time. I actually was up and about, able to go to the store without having to turn around and leave right away due to "flooding", and even did some chores! I was in tears. Hardly any cramping at all except for a little the second day. I am going to continue this. I also take two tbs Apple Cider Vinegar a day and just starting taking iodine as I know I am probably low. Anyone who has this problem must try the Blackstrap Molasses as I know adding this to my regular regimen is what helped since I was already taking the Apple Cider Vinegar prior to the bsm. (unsulfphered) Makes me want to cry right now out of sheer relief! Good luck to all.

I got to admit, I really didnt think it would work, but after having an extremely heavy period for 23 days I was ready to try anything. I started taking the molasses on Tuesday, 1 tb. in the morning and another at night, by Friday, my period had stopped. It is now Monday, and I am still period-free!! My only negative side-effect is a pimple on my face. After having a 3 week period with super-heavy flow with severe cramps and clots... It is hard to explain how happy I am!!! My boyfriend is happy!!! I can have an active sex life again!! There were days that I couldnt even leave the house because I was bleeding so badly. I thank God that I came across this website!! And all this only cost around $3.00. I bought the 'Brer Rabbit' brand of unsulfured molasses from my local supermarket. Thanks you so much for the help!!! I'm telling all my friends!!

This remedy does really work for balancing hormones, headaches, cramping and heavy bleeding during menstruation especially when peri menopause, I am 48 yrs old. It does take a couple of months to get results. I take 2 tsp daily either on toast or on a cracker. Usually once in the morning and once in the afternoon. It's truly amazing how it has changed these symptoms. Be patient and do it every day.

I had a child almost 2 years ago, along with many bad pap results. After many doctors appointments and tests nothing could be found on why I was having vaginal bleeding. I have bled for almost 2 years straight. After 9 months of continuos bleeding I was sent to a specialist who put me on a birth control pill. This did stop the bleeding sometimes, but never had a scheduled period either. I saw this page and read what the molasses did for other woman I have took 1 tablespoon in the am and 1 in the pm this is my 3rd day and I have stopped bleeding... It is truely a miracle!!! Thank you so much for this information!!

I really wanted to thank this site for sharing a herbal remedy to all health problems. I've been looking for an alternative remedy about abnormal menstruation and I end up in this site which is really amazing. I always have a normal period which lasted 3 days, but this last 2 years its getting longer that it even lasted for almost a month then just 2 or 3 days rest and here it goes again and with a very big clot as well. I end up anemic.. I tried so many herbal things like ACV but I cannot take it, maybe I am too acidic that when I took it I felt pain in my tummy...body can tell if it is not for you. Then I tried Blackstrap Molasses bought it for just £1.70 in a health shop in MK. At first I thought it will not work, though I like the taste bec. it is sweet. I took 1 tablespoon in the morning and again before bedtime..first 3 days nothing happen but I continued drinking it..little by little my period getting lesser and lesser..blood clot gone and at exactly one week my bleeding stopped!!! But of course it always comes with prayer. So why not try it, it really happened to me.. I thought people from this site is just exaggerating things. But I am a real and my experience is TRUE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

I have been experiencing light vaginal bleeding every day for two months. Today I decided to add a tablespoon of molasses to my ginseng tea and within the hour I felt that I wasn't bleeding anymore, checked and it was true! I wasn't expecting it and nor did I take add the molasses for this issue. I simply had a "taste" for it for some reason and pulled the jar out of the back shelf of the pantry. I am going to continue adding it to my various herbal tea (I normally do not add sweetner) to see if the issue continues to cease.

I'm replying to my post for the remedy of heavy periods with clots and would like to say that BSM just works wonders for you if you're in my situation. I' 40 yrs. old and have 2 small fibroids.. Which could not have caused me the bleeding that I had this time (full of clots) but no matter I tried the BSM and it helped immediately plus gives me the energy that I wasn't getting from iron supplements. I would highly recommend the product. Thanks to earth clinic for saving me to suffer!! Highly recommended.

Hi everyone, just wanted to share my story. I had extremely heavy bleeding, terrible cramps, cold sweating, constant vomiting issues and really bad back pain due to my menstruation cycle. I used to miss work because I couldn't move due to the severe pain. I tried every tablet I knew of for menstrual cramps and pain. Been to the doctor several times and was put on iron tablets. I nearly died because of bad reaction to the different drugs. I was about to give up when I bounced up on this site. I decided to use the blackstrap molasses and the coconut oil recipes. I drank 1/2 tbsp blackstrap molasses in a glass of lemongrass tea once in the morn and once at night. During the day I took 2 tbsp pure coconut oil. I began 2 days before my menstrual cycle begun. When my menses came, I was so shocked, the pain was less, there was no heavy flow, I did not have to take any tablets and there was no vomiting. I was moving about freely! For all the women out there who are experiencing what I went through and worsen don't give up. Different things work in different ways for the human body. Try them cause you never know what ease you will get!

Blackstrap is more tolerable added to coffee or some sort of milk. :)

At the end of August my menstrual cycle lasted 3 weeks and the flow was three times as heavyas normal. The Dr. said I had "huge" fibroids and an ovarian cyst on my right ovary. They said some of my options were a hysterectomy or trying birth control pills. I found earthclinic instead.

Thanks to the advice on earthclinic, I decided to try the molasses trick. Our grocery store didn't carry the blackstrap--so I thought I'd wait until I got somewhere that did. After only 1 week off--I got my cycle again. On the 2nd day it was abnormally heavy again--I thought --shoot, I'll try the regular stuff, and bought the regular molasses-mild and unsulphered. I took 1 TBSP.

Was it coincidence that it worked instantly? Was it conincidence that the cramping dissapeared? Was it conincidence that my next 2 cycles were right on schedule and back to normal? More importantly, was it coincidence that my follow up ultra-sound showed that the cyst had dissolved and the fibroids were now classified as large-rather than huge? I don't know--but for $2.50 per month (the cost of the bottle and how long it lasted) I will definately continue with taking 1 TBSP per day coincidence or not!!

Sometimes, milk (and other dairy) can complicate menstrual and hormonal issues. Of course, the molasses might have just not been the 'cure' for you and your body, but the milk component might be something to keep in mind.

If you have a lot of female bleeding, it usually points to a lack of D vitamin, so one would need to take maybe one cod liver a day. It works.

I take 1 tbsp in the am and pm. I am anemic from heavy periods and this has raised my iron/hemoglobin levels rapidly. It has also regulated my period to a normal 4 day cycle.

Jacqueline, I put it in a glass of boiling water, mix till it dissolves, and that is my "black coffee" for the day!

I had started to have irregular longer periods and shorter cycles; eg. 23 day cycle instead of 28 days and my periods were lasting a full week instead of the usual 4-5 days. I got on this site and read about the blackstrap molasses which I purchased from a health food store. By the end of the first month my period regulated itself back to a 28-29 days cycle and my periods last 3-5 days with much less bleeding then before. Not only did it put my cycle back to normal(I'm 38) but my hair grew 6 inches in the last year and my fingernails are beautiful and hard! I tell everyone about it! At first I took a tablespoon a day, first thing in the morning, then had my coffee, but now I take just a teaspoon a day for the same results!

I started taking Blackstrap molasses each day in hope that I would find some relief for uterine fibroids and the havoc they wreak on my menstrual cycle. I found this site after the impressive turnaround my grandfather experienced after beginning his own blackstrap regimen. He suffers from Parkinson's disease and had terrible constipation issues (see Fred G from Charlotte's testimony on the site. Fred G is my uncle).

Once on the site, I saw that blackstrap is recommended for so many diverse ailments and thought to give it a try. I have been through one full menstrual cycle and am thoroughly impressed. My decision was to take 1Tbs a day and to bump up to 2 Tbs during my cycle. I immediately noticed an increase in energy and a decrease of sugar and salt cravings throughout the day. My last menstrual cycle was far more manageable than I've experienced over the last several months - far less bleeding and a less dramatic decrease in energy. I am interested to see if results are cumulative. I'm convinced it is making a difference for me and eagerly share the tip with family and friends.

Sookiec, BSM won't hurt so you can probably do a Tablespoon a day safely.

You can also read up on cayenne and on sage tea for slowing/stopping the flow.

Try doing it twice daily with Apple Cider Vinegar and water, honey also if you wish (use organic brand ideally for Apple Cider Vinegar as it has the mother.)

I tried it after my horrendously heavy painful period so for 3 weeks then had another and I didn't have to use any tranexamic acid or strong painkillers like usual, went from ten day bleed to a 5 and no leaking through to the mattress either whilst wearing a tamp so it's definitely helped me. Might just take more time. You need to do it religiously every day for a while to benefit and then if it works for you stick at it long term for life.

Coffee and green tea both cause heavier menstrual flow. Try taking Blackstrap Molasses in orange juice (your body absorbs more iron when you also take vit c). Also try taking it after eating.

I was like clock-work until I got birth control when I was 19 (I'm now 37). Since then, I've had menstruation issues - either have extra heavy periods for up to 3 weeks or nothing at all. Depending on the method and how long my periods were, I have been in and out of anemia. (Believe me, I've tried every birth control known to mankind, I think, and none of them worked. ) Anyway, I'm never been big into homeopathic treatments, but thought I'd give it a shot when I found this website. I started taking 1 tbs blackstrap molasses twice a day about a week ago Monday (when I was expecting my period on Wed). Just when I thought I was going to be off again, I got my period on Thursday and it stopped this morning (4 days)! I couldn't believe it!

I'm still not 100% convinced since this is my 1st time, but if this happens a month from now, you can be assured that I will be shouting its praises from the tops of every mountain I climb. For this month, I sincerely thank this website and everyone on it who had recommended blackstrap molasses. Will let you know how it goes next month.

I was diagnosed with fibroids about 6 or 7 years ago. I am now 44. About 18 months ago, my periods started to become irregular. In about the last 6 months, they have become really heavy and longer. With 3-4 heavy days and lasting as long as 10 days with the flow tapering off to med and light, then finally ending. Let's just say, it has been hell trying to plan anything. Travel, especially. Anyway I found this site about a month ago, was going thru tests with my doc and she was talking surgery (i am also anemic) and I wanted to find something natural to try. I started taking BSM on April 3rd (1 T/day). I am in the middle of (day #4) my first period since starting it.

1. My period started on the exact day that it was suppose to.
2. I have had 2 heavy days (with only 1 heavy night) so far.

I see this as a good sign.

Dairy was found to make menstrual flow heavier. I can only imagine how the Blackstrap Molasses and dairy are fighting doing two opposite jobs while you're taking more of the dairy than the bsm

I have been taking unsulphured blackstrap molasses since the first week of June. I have fibroids and bleed very heavily and my cycles last 10 days. I take a spoonful in hot water twice a day. For this July cycle, I did notice a decrease in the severity of the cramps I experience. But my flow is heavy as usual-nothing has changed there. I noticed another lady posted that her acne seemed to get worse on the molasses. It seems that is also the case with me. I am going to finish the bottle that I have and maybe decrease to only one spoonful a day to see if my acne gets better. I haven't been taking it that long, but I'm disappointed still the same...

I too have, or I should say HAD, extremely heavy flow caused by a large fibroid. Severe cramps, multiple large clots, period on more than off, seemed like I was always 'on'. I even had an ablation (burn and scrape the lining of the uterus), was fine for about 4 months, which was also the healing period so my personal life was still disrupted and then the heavy periods came back, the huge clots, hours spent in the bathroom because the flow is so heavy you cant even leave the toilet. I was becoming anemic and my immune system droppped. I kept getting annoying illnesses because of this and finally a really bad staph infection and thats when I found earthclinic, Thank all the powers that be!!! I searched for staph infection cures and found turmeric (another miracle) That stuff WORKS! For the past month I have been looking up everything on this site and reading just random posts too, I wanted to respond to you because my next step was surgery too and I did not want to be cut on! I found out that Black Cohosh supports womens health so I added it to my morning supplements and since I have been taking it my periods have been less each month virtually no cramps and not one clot. I was on my cycle last month and missed taking it one morning and I passed a clot that afternoon, I have not missed a dose since and I have had excellent results. I bought the blackstrap for other health benefits and have not been taking it on a schedule so can't give any feedback on that except it tastes better than ACV! Oh and regarding the acne from the blackstrap, from all I am learning on this site and many others, acne is caused by bacteria and it seems a good body cleanse in addition to this and the other main remedies would balance things out. Maybe if you added just Ted's alkalyzing concotion of 1/4 tsp baking soda to 4 oz water, I think there are several formulas but bacteria cannot live in an alkaline environment and I cant swallow that nasty ACV hardly either. I have tried all the 'recipes' on here and it is still disgusting to me but I choke it down when I can because I know its good for me. I have heard applying it topically helps clear acne and vericose veins. I cleared my severe blackheads with a combination of coconut and pure viamin E oil. I also drink almond milk every day and it cleared up the bumps on my back and made my skin super soft all over, even my husband noticed! I guess I am just saying don't give up so fast, the answer could be on the next page and it would be so much better than going under the knife! Peace and health to you! Thanks to all the contributors, this site is more help than I have ever had to improve my health and I tell everyone about it (even strangers in the grocery store)!

I went to the my local vitamin store & bought a chasteberry herb 400mg 100/capsules. I took 2 capsules 3/day just like you suggested, and it stopped my heavy flow within 2 days. Thanks for the tip, this site is truly heaven sent. I'll try taking it before my period starts on my next cycle, to see if it helps lessen my flow. It spared me from surgery. I Googled chasteberry and found out that it is in charge of normalizing the pituitary gland, which regulates the balance of estrogen and progesterone in the body. From Heavy flow to rarely having a period, almost All of the symptoms associated with MENSTRUAL cycle can be treated with this plant.
