I just wanted to add to Desmond's post from 2013 on how effective Molasses is for dissolving clots.
I had read about it on Earthclinic for my partner's father who had a hip replacement and because they held his ankle too tightly, created a permanent clot that the Doctors gave him meds for so the blood could travel through the clot.
They told him it was impossible to remove the clot but that his foot would survive with the blood travelling through it.
I told him about Molasses and he used a 1-2 tbspns a day. After 4 bottles and a few months later, the clot was completely gone.
Thank you Desmond for taking the time to post this. The same thing happened to me.J ust below my knee on the calf of my leg. It just kept swelling and it was red. We had just watched Dr. Oz the day before, and he told of the symptoms of a blood clot. It was scary.
I am not one to run to the doctor for just what ever. But I thought well now I have to go. Did not expect to find any help for a blood clot. OK, Blackstrap molasses, really .I went straight to the grocery store (I brought my Tblsp) with me. Took it before I left the parking lot .I was desperate. It has been a week now. And the clot seems to be gone.I took 2 tbls a day mixed in 6oz. of milk. I plan to keep taking it. Maybe not as much, but it seems to be a healthy addition to anyones diet. I used the Brer Rabbit brand because the lable showed to have more iron and magnesium than the grandmas brand. Hope this helps someone.
I had a swelling in my right calf that was throbbing and it felt like needles or it felt like a balloon filled with water ready to explode and it was extremely hot to touch. I went to my clinic and was informed that I'd have to return the following week and see a Specialist. The appointment was made and I went home.
Had phoned my sister-in-law in Donegal, Ireland and told her as I was starting to worry at this point with no relief and she told me to get some Molasses and taking 2 tablespoons daily and it will make it disappear!
Sunday evening when I got home I took 2 tablespoon fulls, repeated it Monday morning and night, same Tuesday and Wednesday too and took another on Thursday morning.
Went to my appointment on Thursday afternoon and was asked to roll up my pants and the Specialist looked at my chart and then to both my legs and back and forth and then he says to me, "Which leg is the affected one?" and told him that I was not sure as it was his opinion that I wanted to hear and then his words were: "You're wasting both my time and your own..." that I had no blood clot and to get out of here and be thankful.
I knew it was the Molasses that cured me and I've been telling that story to everyone except the medical staff. For they would never believe me!
Yea. I dont know either, however i am feeling much better. The only thing i did different this month is the black strap. Cycle only 4 days and no heavy bleeding. I dont know how it works, but nature and God is speaking to us women.
Black Strap Molasses has really helped my heavy bleeding and clotting due to fibroids. I do not know how it works but it is working.
I read about Blackstrap Molasses and its ability to remedy female issues, and I was amazed. I have rather large fibroids, extreme bleeding and clots. My doctors have looked at a number of treatments from meds to surgery. I started taking 3 tablespoon of molasses a day about 2 months ago. I was schedule for surgery which had to be re-scheduled 3x due to other issues. But, it's my belief that all the re-scheduling was the universes way of protecting me from an un-needed surgery. I'm not bleeding as heavy, reduced blood clots and shorter cycle. I spoke to my natural pathetic doctor and she has no documented information about these types of benefits of molasses. Can anyone tell me why and how blackstrap molasses seems to reverse and reduce these female issues? This is my third month on the molasses, any suggestions as to how long to take the product? Thank you for your helpful information, this is a wonderful site.
