re: BSM and the Periods from hell. I went to see the gynaecologist last week and he informed me that I have several fibroids and a polyp. It seems that the polyp will need to be removed as it could contain cancerous cells. I started my period last Wednesday, 2/27 and the flow was minimal, in fact, hardly anything there at all. I went shopping on Saturday and when I got out of the car, it was like a flood of blood coming away from me. It soaked through my underclothes, my skirt and my SUEDE coat. I was so disappointed as I really thought the BSM was making a difference. However, come Saturday evening, the blood flow had stopped completely and I haven't had any since. I cautiously believe that this is the BSM. Had I not had the polyp I wouldn't have gone for surgery but I need reassurance that it is not malignant. Once again, I'll keep you posted.

Hi, I just wanted to write to thank you for the information on Blackstrap molasses. I've had very painful periods ever since I can remember and have had to rely on powerful painkillers just so that I can get through the day. Without my painkillers I will be lying curled up in bed crying from the pain, it is so bad! After taking 1-2 tablespoons of BSM per day for 3 months, I am having my first "normal" period. Yes, there is still pain and cramping, but I believe this is closer to the normal levels. I am uncomfortable at times but not crying in bed so it is a definite improvement. It is also the first time in YEARS I didn't pop my pills! THANK YOU so much!

After having irregular periods for 3 months, and no diagnoses for it other than hormonal imbalance, I decided to look into what I could do to take my own health into my hands. I found information regarding BSM and decided I would give it a try. After 2 weeks, my constant spotting stopped. I began to feel energetic and started walking every day again. My mood has lifted. And everyone I know has asked me what skin cream I'm using, because my skin is visibly glowing! I'm also sleeping better. And I cannot deny that my sugar cravings have lessoned. Before I began my 3 tablespoon a day regimen of black strap molasses, I know my body was depleted of vitamins and minerals. I will be continuing with BSM in hopes that my health will improve along with other measures I intend to take!

My period has been always heavy that my hemoglobin level is always low that I have to take iron and shot every 2 weeks. ITs hard also to work and go to the bathroom every now and then. When I bleed it like for 10 days and more. I was diagnosed with fibroid just 2 months ago and I found your website just weeks before my surgery and its my second day of my period. I started taking the molasses and the next day my period slow down and no blood clotting and it stopped after 5 days. My daughter is always suffering from constipation and I recommended her this and she said she never pooh like this before..THANK YOU!

I am a 44 yr old female with Type 2 diabetes, HBP and osteoarthritis. I had almost given up on myself until 2 months ago. I found your site and started taking ACV hoping for relief from arthritis pain (2 tbs 3x a day mixed with apple juice). The first 3 days were rough, I felt pretty bad. Then I started feeling better. Not only has ACV helped ease the arthritis pain, but it has also lowered my blood pressure and my blood sugar levels have also dropped! My average was 135 and it is now 108! I've even lost some weight! I feel like I have a new found energy and my sleep patterns have improved! I don't have food cravings anymore and my complexion looks great too. I can't say enough about how ACV has helped me. I have told several of my friends about this site. They too are having success with many of the remedies posted here. May I also say that I started Black Strap Molasses at the same time (1 tbs once a day with 5 oz milk). My period was very heavy with lots of large clots and lasted for almost 2 weeks. I was always weak and light-headed during my period. I am happy to report that my last period was only 7 days! The first 3 days were still heavy but it tapered off to normal. The light-headed feeling is gone too. I am so glad I found this website. I feel like I am becoming the person I used to be when I was younger and I am very happy with the changes.

I was suffering for years with anemia and I had even been let go from my job due to the fact that I could not keep my strength up. I had been told by several doctors that my multiple fibroids required a hysterectomy. I had no tolerance for ANY type of iron supplement. I was steadily getting worse. One doctor even gave up treating me. When that happened I was greatly distressed. I began to recall an island friend telling me that I needed to take blackstrap molasses. So I began using it and lo and behold I improved immediately. My blood count went up from 6 to 7.8 in one month. I now am going through menopause and have found that it helps even with that. I love it and tell everyone about it. My husband takes it daily. I also have no more symptoms of anemia and fibroid issues. I take it now for the calcium and other minerals that are great for menopause troubles.

Thank you so much for your efforts in helping people like me take their health in their own hands! I have searched for years for the reasons I was feeling so sluggish and drained all the time, especially that one week (or more) a month....well I am here to tell you that there is certainly something to the Blackstrap Molasses...it WORKS!!!! For the first time since my youngest was born nearly 6 years ago I have suffered with nightmare periods, to the point where I wouldn't leave the house for nearly 10 days....after 5 weeks of taking BSM I am happy to say that my period was NORMAL and I am back to my old self again. I went from 10 days of misery to 5 days that I actually spent in my yard and garden. SMILE I take it as needed, if I started feeling crampy I would just eat it off the spoon and less than 30 minutes later...RELIEF! I recommend all women eat a little every day, you won't regret it! Good health to you all.

I had been having heavy periods for about 2 years. About 5 weeks ago I discovered this site by accident and began using blackstrap molasses; 1 tbsp in a glass of warm water twice a day mostly on an empty stomach about 20 mins before breakfast and dinner. I also occasionally had constipation. First I noticed that I was going to the bathroom regularly and this month my period was a lot lighter. It works people; pleeeeeeeeeeease try it. It works! V

My local store does not have blackstrap molasses. Can I use the Brer Rabbit unsulphured molasses until I can order blackstrap from Amazon? Thoughts?

I've been bleeding for six weeks and I would love to try this as an alternative.

I also have fibroids, but so far the BSM isn't helping me. At first I took the regular molasses, I had picked up the wrong bottle, and the regular molasses seem to lessen the bleeding a lot more, even went almost 2 days without bleeding, once I learned I was taking the wrong molasses, I purchased the BSM, but it isn't helping as well as the regular molasses. Anyone know why that would be both were unsulfered? Are you still taking it, and not bleeding?

Did it stop your bleeding next day after taking it? Did it make your period worse?

If you are going through perimenopause, and have been experiencing a never ending period, will taking Blackstrap Molasses help to stop the bleeding?

Did the BSM help you? I've been on the BSM pills for almost 2 weeks didn't do anything for me, now I got some in the jar to try, started it yesterday with ACV & baking soda. For four years I have been dealing with this never ending period. I will try things that will work for a little while, then stop. I went for an ultrasound, the Abdominal showed 7mm uterine lining, and the vaginal showed 12mm. They didn't know where I was in my cycle to say if it was normal or not. It showed I had 2 small fibroids & 2 small cysts. My Dr. didn't seem worried, come back in a few months to recheck. I use to have clockwork periods every 28 days until I hit 48. I miss those days.

Update: I started taking 1 tsp BSM twice a day in August 2014 with immediate results (I had a period that lasted 20 days; took BSM that night and day 21 bleeding stopped completely). I continued to take it until ten days ago when I decided to try DIM-Plus supplement instead, just to see what would happen. My period started yesterday with awful cramps and lots of clotting, which I hadn't seen since August. I was bleeding very heavily as well. I took a tablespoon of BSM, and this morning, I am not bleeding at all! I am sure I will before it's over, but I am convinced that the BSM helps to control the amount of bleeding and the clotting. I read that the DIM-Plus takes a while to be effective. I am going to experiment with continuing to take it daily, and just taking BSM on the days I actually have my period.

I have been trying BSM for the past few weeks, prior to my period starting to see if it would alleviate pain and heavy flow. Well, my period started and I'm on day 3 and honestly the flow is a lot heavier than usual. I had to get up several times at night from the clotting and flooding. I am just curious if it takes a few months to regulate or to see a difference?? It seems so many users have good luck with this method and I don't want to give up, but also do not want my cycle to be worse than it already is. I have been taking about a tsp of BSM (plantation brand unsulphered) in the morning and then during my period I have added 1-2 more in the am .I also take ACV regularly in the morning.

I also started this remedy because I tend to spot in between periods and right before and right after. And of course my periods are also pretty heavy and painful and more so as I get older. I am 41 year old female, no children.

I know some women have mentioned adding the baking soda? Any help would be greatly appreciated. It seems so many women start taking BSM and see an instant change. I would love to hear if anyone had luck with it, but more over a gradual time?

Thanks!

Dear Lmwb,

I am so sorry you are having this trouble.

Yes, it could take some time for what you are doing to help.

You can also take Shepherd's Purse for the acute bleeding. Or Cayenne Pepper. Or Liquid Chlorophyll. (I used to take about a Tablespoon an hour for heavy bleeding and it really helped.)

Some other things that may help would be less animal products in the diet and more vegetables and fruits.

There is also a tincture that you could make or buy with several herbs that are very helpful for regulating the female system.

http://healingtools.tripod.com/femtonic.html

I made some of this a few months ago and have been taking it and am finding it helpful. I am 47 and have never had cycles this regular in my whole life.

Everyone is different. It can be a lot of trial and error until you find what helps you best. I hope you find what helps you best soon.

Have been taking Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) for one month now for heavy bleeding. Today is my first day of periods.. Half the day was ok but just saw some heavy clots again. Makes me worried. Had 3 spoons of BSM today diluted in water every 3 to 4 hrs. Do I need to try apple cider vinegar (ACV) now along with BSM? I'm a 40 yr. old woman and have 2 tiny fibroids.

Hi, While you are bleeding heavily, as a quick cure take Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tablespoon in water, say 3 to 4 times a day, best to drink thru a straw. Eventually you need to address your hormone imbalance x

Hi, After having heavy periods with clots, for quite sometime, also recently having bloated stomach. I decided to search online for remedies to reduce my bloating, molasses was one of the remedies, fortunately I remember I have a bottle at home for quite sometime. However I decided to use a teaspoon, each morning until my peroid came. What I realise with this period I have no cramps, my flow reduced. And less clotting, am feeling so happy that I don't have to be bothered by the heavy flow. I can see and feel the big difference.

I tried the equal parts unsulfered organic BSM, unrefined organic coconut oil, and organic peanut butter to try to lighten my period. I started a few days before the period began. This is day two and it's very heavy. So it has not had any immediately noticible effect. It did not seem to affect my energy level either. But it does make a nice snack. And seems to help somewhat with constipation. I cannot tolerate carbohydrates or grains, so it may be related to that rather than iron deficiency. Or I have a reduced ability to absorb the iron. I did not try taking it with vitamin C.

Hi, With Bsm it needs to be the non sulpher organic type and most of have to take atleast 1 large tablespoon atleast 3 times a day- drink lots of water too. Another remedy which could be easier for some people is a small glass of water with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in it at least 3 times a day (drink through a straw). Honestly these work and it is amazing- I think if you are not seeing results then take more- both of these work for me- I prefer the ACV at the moment and sometimes as baking soda but it works without- good luck
