Apple Cider Vinegar for Breast Calcifications
Posted by Angeles B. (Bronx, Ny) on 06/19/2016

This is belated THANK YOU to Earth Clinic and those who share on the site. In Dec 2014, I posted that the doctor found calcification in my breasts after a regular mammogram. I read here that Apple Cider Vinegar destroys calcification and went about taking it as advised on this site. Well, I went for a second mammogram in early Jan 2015 and NO calcification was found!! Praise God and thank you Earth Clinic!

Apple Cider Vinegar for Breast Calcifications
Posted by Coco (Chattanooga, Tn) on 11/26/2016

I've taken apple cider vinegar (organic with the "mother") for about 10 years now for a variety of reasons. I too had breast calcifications and they are now gone for several years now (not sure exactly how many).

I take 1 tablespoon in about 10 to 12 ounces of water in the mornings, about 5 mornings per week, first thing on an empty stomach. After a few months, I added about 1/2 teaspoon of baking sofa to the mixture to help with constipation. I also take about 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with a pinch of baking soda in 6 ounces of water at bedtime for indigestion (about 5 out of 7 nights).

I do take some other supplements, but I believe the breast calcifications disappeared with the apple cider regime.

Castor Oil
Posted by Paula (New Zealand) on 05/09/2014

My daughter had breast lumps which developed when she started contraception they were worrying her so I got her to lie in bed with a smearing of castor oil over the area and a oil soaked woollen rag over it then plastic wrap over it then we placed a covered hot water bottle over the area, she fell asleep and within about an hour she called me to her room and the area had large red areas following the veins around the sides of her breast abit like welts but not raised. I believe it was the lumps dissolving. The lumps went away completely after doing this once. I got this information to do this from the Edgar Cayce site. Hope this helps someone.

My doctor had me going for mammograms every 6 months for the last 4 years due to multiple cysts in my breasts. I read that breast cysts can be a precursor to breast cancer so I started researching ways to get rid of them. I found an enzyme (Serrapeptase) which claimed to "eat away" at cysts. So I skipped my 6 month visit and took it nightly for a year. Then went back for my mammogram. No mention of cysts in the report. I even called my doctor to have them check the report for mention of cysts and they said there was no mention of cysts at all. So I'm claiming it worked. I will continue to take it nightly.

Do your research folks, only one brand was used in the clinical trials so be wary of imitations. BTW, it will give you indigestion if you don't follow the directions and take it on an empty stomach.

I am a woman who has suffered with several different ailments over the last few years. Recently while searching for something to help the horrible pain I was having from Fibroid Cysts in my breasts, I thought maybe I had an iodine deficency. I went to a small herbacy and was recommended Serrapeptase Enzyme. I was leary of the product since I am on a very tight budget and didn't want to take something that might not work. The lady gave me some literature and my husband encouraged me to try it. I have been taking two pills mornings and two more at night and in less than a month I feel amazing! I no longer have painful breasts and the lumps are gone. I have suffered with endometriosis and cysts on my ovaries as well and have not had any of their symptoms either. In addition to all of these things I have had horrible sciatica. The anti-inflammatory properties of this "miracle" has reduced all the swelling in my lower back and am now able to "pop" my back and in conjunction with stretching have been pain free for over a week. I am totally sold on this supplement and encourage anyone with any type of swelling or cysts to try it.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Grandmama-d (Nashville, Tn) on 04/18/2012

I found a lump in my underarm pit near my breast that had not been there just a few days prior. I immediately started taking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a small amount of water (probably 10 tablespoons of water or less), three times a day. Within a week the lump had disappeared completely. The lump felt like the classic lump I was taught to feel for in my self breast exam and it was as hard as a rock. Although the lump was gone I continued the apple cider vinegar routine. Hope this helps.

Hi Kelly - I, too, had benign breast cysts and what really helped me was painting a quarter-size spot of iodine on my breasts every evening before bed (wait until it dries because it stains). Eventually my cysts disappeared. I used Lugol's and it was recommended by my doctor. If you type in iodine cysts on Google, there is a lot of great information on it. Good luck!

A breast cyst tends to form whenever blood sugar spikes causing the solubility of the calcium from the bones to be increased by 20 times solubility of calcium more then average. Whenever a tissue or a muscle is damaged, assuming the breast from bruises the blood circulation may get obstructed, and once the area heals, the blood leaves, but not the calcium and you get a breast cyst. To neutralize or prevent such formation, blood sugar spikes is best avoided by drinking plenty of water (with a pinch of sea salt) before during and after meals, a chromium supplements (I personally used chromium chloride - so most chromium sold in markets are o.k.). This chromium will reduce blood sugar, which in turn reduces blood calcium and excessive clotting, which in turn reduce the cysts. In which case if a cyst is formed, controlling blood sugar is the primary method. But long term cysts tend to cause pain and a calcium antagonists magnesium, the preferred form is magnesium citrate, magnesium chloride for example, 250- 500 mg a day is used which will reduce the pain. A more serious condition may require disodium EDTA supplements, but the dose I used is far lower then those used commercially in oral chelation therapies., which is only between 10-50 mg., with preferably 10-25 mg. This won't lower the calcium a lot, but sufficient to prevent excessive calcium buildup and it is not taken everyday either. It's taken only once every two or three days. However for most condition, I believe a simple baking soda and lemon is much more easier to use, as citrates also chelate calcium too, but on a limited scale withouth some undo problems of the stronger EDTA, which I view as somewhat agressive. Of course, an EDTA once a week is more ideal as it prevents heavy metal accumulation, which some metals are free radical and tend to be cancer causing, would be more suitable approach.

The lemon/lime juice is 2 tablespoon of lime juice plus baking soda 1/2 teaspoon taken twice a day should help normalized most of the blood calcium issue, while chromium supplements such as 500-1000 mcg, will reduce the calcium solubility. The effects of alkalization will prevent the leeching effects of the bones so the bones stay in place. Magnesium would in the end fortify the bone to be more resilient. Calcium alone wouldn't do it. It's like a chalk. But magnesium added would add resilence to the bone and also reduce the leeching effects thus reducing the high blood calcium that causes cyst. In my observation most of the cysts comes from high sugar consumption, metabolic acidosis (from chlorine and fluorine exposure), use of artificial sweetners (aspartame ultimately breaks down formaldehyde which destroys the body's equilibrium in maintaining stable pH), and also exposure to hydrocarbons. Those are the primary causes of cysts. However, they can also form from excessive use of antibiotics, which tends to increase heavy metals, metabolic acidosis, which ultimately forms a cysts, or in other areas such as the lungs, which tends to form calcification and that shows up in x-rays.

My wife had chronic breast cysts. The doctors told her to cut out chocolate and caffeine and keep getting mammograms. A friend told me that breast cysts are a condition of an iodine deficiency. I researched it and got my wife on 12.5 mg iodine pills. Within a week her pain was gone, and within a month her cysts were gone and have never come back. It works!!! It is also good for prostate problems.

I used a makeup cotton pad and put a mixture of castor oil and frankincense oil on the pad, then put it inside my sports bra and wore it there all night every night for the past four days. The cyst was the size of a large gum ball. Now it's the size of a small gum ball in just 4 days! I'm honestly amazed!

Hi Debbers, I had multiple cysts both breast big like 25 cents and was ready to go for an operation. I took iodine kelp, vit e, selenium, vit c. is very effective. Add to your diet flax seed, almond, walnut and oats. No fatty food, caffeine, avoid sweet, chocolate, dairy product like cream, whole milk. Try this and you will be cured. It took a year to dissolved and I am totally free from cyst.

Hi the best remedy I tried for breast cysts is drinking 2 cups of Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris) tea, within 10-14 days it will disappear.

Flaxseed Oil, Vitamin C, Fulvic Acid
Posted by Gattamore (Arlington, Virginia) on 02/06/2011

I don't know exactly what contributed to my breast lumb to dissolve, but Hi-lignan flaxseed oil along with high vitamin C doses and fulvic acid did the job in less than a week! It's all gone, couldn't be more happy! I mostly contributed to the hi-lignan.

First, thank you all for your work in helping all of us take better control of our health, I am very grateful for the knowledge I have gained from this site. I was hoping you could offer a little advice for trying to reduce a breast cyst.

A brief history on me is a cyst ( size of a grape) was found after self exam, then a mammogram, ultrasound and needle aspirate which showed it to be benign. That was 2 years ago. I am 42 also have benign thyroid nodules. I have been determined to rebalance my body and eliminate these issues.

I started Iodoral 5 months ago, along with Vit C powder, Selenium 200mcg, food based multi vitamin, mag citrate 200mg and Vit D 2000 - 4000IU/day. This plan has already softened my breast tissue dramatically. Aside from the cyst they don't feel lumpy / bumpy as my doctor said 2 years ago.

Last month I increased magnesium to 500mg and reduced Vit D to 2,000 and added 250 mg of coral calcium/day. Still wondering how much calcium is needed if I eat plenty of green foods and take a green drink daily.

The breast pain has reduced dramatically but the cyst feels a lot harder. Still smooth, movable and slightly increases in size before my period which is also irregular, every 5 -7 weeks.

My question is I would like to know if I should change anything I am doing. I know to be patient and that this can take many months to resolve. As of this week I am adding 1/2 tsp of baking soda and either 2 TBLS of lemon/lime or ACV 2 x per day. And will do this 5 day's per week.

I sleep well, rarely eat sugar or high GI foods, of healthy weight and have plenty of energy. Overall I feel great but do have frequent lower abdominal bloating. Which is why I cleaned up my diet. Candida my be a possible cause I discovered after taking a candida survey. Hope the baking soda and ACV helps with that too.

I just want to get things back in balance. I know many women like this and want to offer them this information too. I am also going to have thermogram done this month.

Thank you for reading all of this and for your help.

Kind regards,

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by MissM (NY) on 01/22/2021

I had severe pain and cystic breasts. What eliminated was painting on Lugol's iodine, and taking it as well. I then found out I was hypothyroid and the painful breasts were a symptom!

Immediate relief! Even my gynecologist didn't even suggest this remedy.

I was given all kinds of pain medication, even birth control pills to help and they did nothing. Try getting lugol's and painting on breast first. Do not worry it stains then disappears!

If it disappears quickly, you are iodine deficient! Get your thyroid checked.

MSM and Vitamin C

MSM AND Vitamin C to Cure Breast Pain

With summer so close some of us will not be able to use baking soda without swelling. Baking soda water and molasses has gotten me through many seemly incurables. However, in my older age my legs and feet swells due to circulatory situations. About three weeks ago I started getting some breast pain. I started doing some research and learned about MSM water (16 tablespoons of organic MSM in a gallon of distilled or spring water), and vitamin C which is taken a half hour later. Several tablespoons of this water is drank about five times each day. It works is all I want to say.

MSM does not bother me, I use to take the tablets until I ran out. if I had only known it was doing more then helping my knees I would have not have stopped taking them. I simply went to search and put in MSM and cancer, (staying ahead of the game) and searched a few of the listings. I found at least two articles that said this will cure it. It certainly took the pain.

Loving You EC,

I have a breast cyst that during an ultrasound was shown to be complex (three small cysts linked together). Due to a small "hot spot" (signifying blood flow) showing up in the tissue surrounding the cysts, doctor said I needed a biopsy performed. I asked that I be referred to a doctor in a larger city nearyby for a second opinion, my doctor agreed, however before the appointment could be made my doctor called back and said they looked at my ultrasound/mammogram results again and don't think a biopsy is needed afterall, just a repeat ultrasound in six months. It sounds very suspicious to me that the doctor changed his mind when a second opinion was requested... At any rate, are there any natural therapies I can try to get rid of the cyst? I've had the cyst for at least a year, and have a couple of other ones that aren't considered complex. I'm not sure what to do, I fear any second opinion by a surgeon will result in some type of surgery...

Last year my boyfriend discovered my breast lump which was the size of a grape. I took Lugol's 7% solution and increased my daily dose of natural Thyroid. I also take Zinc, Magnesium, D3, L-Tyrosine, Flaxseed oil, EPO, Selenium, Vit C, L-Lysine, Biotin, Cranberry, and a natural Fruit/Veggie based vitamin. I try to do raw fruit/veggie smoothies several times a week. The lump was gone by the time I went in for a mammogram. I believe that my past history of breast lump, goiter, and ovarian cysts was caused by lack of iodine & insufficient thyroid hormone treatment.
