6/2006 I found out that I was pregnant and diagnosed with 3 large fibroid tumors. I miscarriage at 7 month term then returned to the hospital a month later to remove the tumors. Over the years since my surgery I had weight gain (60lbs), heavy menstural cycles last sometimes up to 8 days, severe anemic, severe constipation so I decided to see my obgyn 8/3/2012.He ordered a ultra sound of the abdomen and pelvis. A week later I was told that my tumors has returned (6) and they are larger then prior. I was advised the only option would be a hysterectomy. I'm 39 years old and no kids so I decide to research online for cures to prevent surgery.

I have been taking 2 tsps twice a day of ACV with the mother since 10/4 and I now have a normal cycle. I have lost 59lbs have changed my eating habits whole wheat, lots of vegetables, baked/broil chicken and fish, cut out all sugars including drinks and fast food, drink 8 glasses of H20 daily and exercise occasionally. My before weight was 298lbs and currently I weigh 239. I have my iron under control and I feel wonderful. I visit my obgyn two weeks ago and he scheduled another ultrasound just got my results back and he and the staff was amazed that no tumors exist on the ultra sound. I was so happy to hear the great news but I know to maintain future occurences I will have to take care of myself. I continue to take ACV daily and I just wanted to share my story here and hope that my story can be a help to others. Also I prayed constantly daily because I know at the end of the day God has the last say.

I read once on earthclinic that blackstrap molasses works wonders for fibroids. I told a co worker about what I found as she was heading to surgery after the holiday's. She was clearly upset as she had grandchildren to support and missing work would have actually hurt her situation rather than helped...she took my advice and took the recommend dose...I lost contact with her bcuz my job with the company was temporary. A year later I saw her at the grocery store and she noticed me with excitement in her eyes, she told me that after taking the blackstrap molasses her fibroids were completely gone...she didn't need surgery after all...needless to saz there's a very happy grandma in San Antonio today!! Lol thanks earthclinic for all the useful information...

Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with a fibroid, polycysts and endometriosis..though they were small dr suggested me to do a surgery. I have decided to give myself a try with homeremedies. I have found this page on last month after my Appointment.

I took Apple Cider Vinegar alone for a week and I continued to mix with blackstrap molasses and I have also did castor oil pack every night.. I have stopped eating red meat as well as chicken. I also take dandelion tea.. I take beet parsley carrot and celery juice two days once..every evening I am eating papaya or watermelon I drink alot of water to flush out the toxic out of my body after three week plus today I had a scan dr said my fibroid and cyst had shrunk slightly.. I told him that I will try for three months than come back for a scan.

Dear readers, trust me after a week of Apple Cider Vinegar I had my period with less cramping and of course there was no extra bleeding after my period. I urge everyone to try this home remedy before deciding to do a surgery which has no guarantee of the reoccurring fibroids and cyst... I am going to continue this remedy after all it is cheaper and safe ...all the best people.

Thank you for reading my post.

2 months ago, I was diagnosed with a Fibroid tumor the size of a fist ( 6cm x 8cm) at the top of my uterus, an ovarian cyst ( 3.5 cm x 4.5cm) on my left ovary, and several other small cysts on my right ovary. I was in horrible pain. All the doctors I consulted sung the same chorus, "surgery! Thats what they trained for anyways.

But am here to testify that God has completely healed me of all the pain, cysts and the fibroids. Am here to encourage someone that it's not the end of the road if you in a similar situation, there's a way out.

1. Most importantly, I have been praying, praying, and praying to the Almighty Father.

2. Have been taking 1 tbs BSM, ACV, BS twice a day

3.1tbs turmeric, cayennepepper, cinnamon, cumin and blackpepper powder.

4. 3 litres Beet, carrot, radish and carrot juice daily

5.Milkthistle and Maca root capsules

6. Changed my diet completely and stuck to an Alkaline one

7. Castor oil packs each night

In less than 7 weeks, the cysts and tumor were all gone!

I have tried to submit this a couple of times. I'm not sure if I have been successful or not. Will try one more time. I don't as a rule respond to online testimonials. However, I am very aware that the ACV I have been consuming the past couple months is worthy of a serious mention here. I suffer with uterine fibroids. And at 46 yrs old, the doctor wanted to apply watchful waiting to see if they would start to shrink once menopause hit me. My mom didn't go into menopause til her mid 50's so I was not about to wait that long for relief. Besides, the pain, flooding, fatigue, clots and not being able to leave my toilet has been getting progressively worse over the past couple years. I'm a lead singer in a rock band and I can recall recent gigs that I did where I was bleeding so heavy, I had to wear a flippin bladder pad (and black clothes) to simply get through an hrs worth of performing before our set break when I could run to the can and fix things up for another hour. Very embarrasing. But there have been even more embarrasing moments let me tell you. (sad face)

I first read about apple cider vinegar on this site, and if it weren't for the many many believable testimonials, I probably would have laughed it off. But after taking this miracle juice for the past 2 months. I feel I really have to contribute my story. I always believed most testimonials were crap that were written by fakers trying to sell their product. However, there is nothing anyone can gain here except relief from the shared knowledge. So I am happy to add my story. Hope it helps one or more of you.

My fibroids which the doc claimed were few and very small (and shouldn't be causing me any distress) made my life a living hell. Periods were 5 to 7 days of gushing blood and clots. Clots so big I swore I was miscarrying. I had many days each month where I sat on the toilet with my laptop. Afraid to even get up. If I did, I gave birth to another huge painful to pass clot. My breasts were always sore a week before my period, during and sometimes after for a couple days. I blew threw maxi pads in less than an hr, and the pain and fatigue was terrible. Sex and penetration was also becoming very painful. I started taking regular Heinz store brand ACV 2 months ago. I will go to the health food store and pick up some higher end stuff now that I know it works well for me.

The first thing I noticed on month 1 was zero PMS, my period literally snuck up on me. No breast swelling or tenderness the whole period. Wha? I'll take it! Period was what I would deem as normal. It has been so many years since having a normal period, I almost didn't recognize it. I passed 1 small clot and barely even noticed. Period slowed by day 4 and by then I was no longer wearing any sanitary protection. Wow... Just Wow! Pain was manageable. Still took a couple advil once or twice during the heavier period days. But used to take 10 advil a day for 7 days. What a difference! The biggest shock was the absence of the gushing. Sorry TMI but no way to really explain this properly without being frank. Seriously... Gushing was gone. Clotting all but gone. That cycle, I did a stage show with my band and wore a WHITE dress. Haha never would have been that brave before. Waited another month to see if I was just as fortunate before posting my findings here. Happy Happy happy to report that I just finished another period that was as easy and managable as last months. Oh happy day! Again one very small clot. No gushing. I am taking 2 tbsp of ACV twice a day in a bottle of water which I drink down fast a few mins before meals. I was also surprised and thrilled to note that the last 20 lbs that I have been struggling to lose (I am a zero to low carber) have been coming off since taking ACV. Seems as if water weight is the first to go. I'll take that thank you very much!! Lol

I don't know if the ACV is shrinking my fibroids so soon. I hope it is. And will ask for an ultrasound sometime this next year to see whats happening with them. But what I do know for sure. Is the pain, distress, and emotional upheaval I experienced with each and every period for the past 7 years is now all but gone away. I would have tried the Black strap molasses, but when I read the carton how many carbs and calories are in there... Ummm nope, not for this kid!

I hope someone out there who is a skeptic like me, reads this, and gives it a whirl. What do you have to lose anyway? I was slowly losing my mind and my sex life before this. Should mention that the pain from sex hasn't yet gone away, but it is less noticeable. I suspect the fibroids are pressing on my cervix, bladder and intestines. Thanks for reading my lil story.

Hi everyone,

I have been diagnosed with Fibroids about 4 years ago. I had 3 measuring about 5cm, 4cm and the last one 3cm.

At the point of my diagnosis I was only 25 and was having very heavy periods with extremely big clots. I seeked the help of Traditional Chinese Medicine and didnt follow through too welll as I often forgot to take my medication and it tasted putrid. I was single then and it didn't really hit me that fibroids can potentially cause infertility.

Now, im married and TTC for about a year, after trying and trying without success, I decided to research on natural remedies to help shrink fibroids. I also went for a scan to check the size of my fibroids before embarking on the natural route to shrinking my fibroids. They were 6cm+, 5cm+ and 3cm+ (they had grown)

I started taking

  • ACV(apple cider vinegar) organic and raw brand + BSM (blackstrap mollasses, unsulphated and organic) + manuka honey, once or twice daily.
  • Iodine (read that it helps)
  • EPO
  • Flaxseed Oil
  • Cut out meat as much as I could and only eat organic meats when I do have them
  • Matcha powder with ginger, tumeric and cinnamon (made into a drink)
  • vitamin C
  • Serrazyme
  • DIM
  • nattokinase
  • tumeric tablets
  • Vitex (chasteberry capsules)
  • milk thistle to cleanse the liver at night
  • Dandelion Drops

I did all this continuously for about a month and a half up till now and even brought them on holiday trips. I recently went for a Pelvic Ultrasound and intravaginal and they found that 2 of my fibroids were 4-ish cm and the third was 3cm. To me, this was a big improvement. my periods are way lighter and alot less painful and clots reduced by 90%.

I told myself that I'd pay it forward and share my experience with everyone going through the same pain and struggles as I am. I am religiously continuing the above remedies daily without fail and have changed my diet to fruit juices as far as possible (orange, apple, ginger, pineapple, a dash of tumeric, flax and chia seeds)

Last but not least, I do castor oil packs daily when my AF is over.

I hope this helps those struggling with fibroids.

Hello to all the women suffering from Fibroids, I have 5-6 very very large fibroids and my uterus is 20 cms - I was OK with life till it was 18cms but after it increased to 20 cms life has been unbearable - I am even more tired, fatigued, look like I am in 3rd trimester and hair loss etc etc.. My periods are heavy but they last max 2 days - I started using VIT B6 100 MG daily - even during periods to reduce the flow. It helped a lot..but we may need to take more than 100 mg during periods if the flow is heavy and this causes temporary tingling and numbness in the feet which will go away once you stop B6 for a day. I don't want to go in for surgery so am desperately looking for a CURE.

I read about BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES AND STARTED UNSULPHURED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES YESTERDAY - I got my period today AND I cannot believe it - its lightest of the light, I don't feel bloated, heavy tired, I am not sighing and groaning as I normally do. I have started taking 1 spoon AM and 1 spoon PM with warm water and I have just taken 2 spoons - MY UTERUS IS SINGING - my body can feel the difference. I have read 2-3 firm testimonials of women who cured and dissolved their FIBROID TUMOURS with Blackstrap Molasses. I can confirm that with 1st 2 spoons my UTERUS is singing, my periods are the lightest ever and I am sitting down to share this - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RUSH AND GET A BOTTLE OF UNSULPHURED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES AND TAKE 2 SPOONS A DAY AND CHECK FOR YOURSELF AND REPORT progress. BSM is very very rich in IRON, and a host of antioxidants and VIT B6 which increases progesterone. 1 IMP matter to note here and all women will already know this - if you take any IRON supplement, your periods will end up much more heavy hence I always avoided iron supplements and used to rely on beet juice, carrot juice, wheatgrass juice and lots of VIT C. Now I am using only BSM because it has all the IRON a woman needs. If you wish, only if you wish you may add carrots, beets, aloe vera juice to your drink. I don;t

I am using only BSM and it has come as a life saver and a miracle.

I am very very confident that if bleeding is controlled - then it can shrink fibroids. BSM is very very rich in antioxidants and B6 that balance PH levels inside the uterus.

I am NOT taking any other medicines or anything else - I just stopped diary and meat and eggs and continue with vegetables. I was taking VIT B6 but BSM is doing far far far better than VIT B6 so I have stopped VIT B6.

If for some reason it is not working for you - stop and check what else are you taking that is not letting BSM work.. is it birth control pills or something else hormonal. Stop that and continue with BSM

I will share my feedback in 2-3 months if I notice a reduction in the size but the way day 2 has gone, I am very very confident that BSM is doing something awesome to clean up the uterus and the pelvic area.

Please take BSM and continue this thread - I have tried every other remedy last 7-8 years and nothing has worked to reduce Fibroids or the blood flow. The only thing that helped me so far is VIT B6 but BSM is working at a level far higher than VIT B6.

Brand I used was Aunt Pattys Unsulphured Organic Blackstrap Molasses from whole foods for $4.99 for 12 ounces - if you can't get this one, use ANY UNSULPHURED BRAND.

The PH level of the Uterus is somehow magically getting reset by BSM - ls report back - I think anything that reduces the flow and emptying and flooding during periods is the right way to shrink fibroids. It shows that it knows how to handle the ECO-SYSTEM.

Contrary to what most Doctors may not tell you - HEAVY PERIODS puts all women at much higher risk for all kinds of PEVLIC AREA cancers

In fact that's why I started VIT B6 to control and reduce the flow by medication.

BSM has just taken charge of my uterus and I believe it can set right the ecosystem, GOD BLESS, GOOD LUCK, PLEASE PASS THIS ONTO EVERY WOMAN WHO IS SUFFERRING OUT THERE AND IS HAVING FIBROIDS, CYSTS AND HEAVY BLEEDING.

I have gotten my life back.

Thanks,

Payal

Fibroids and period pain:

ALL THE PRAISE TO GOD! I have been taking 1 to 2 tablespoons of Black Strap Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar for just about 2 months and I am having the very best period I have had in decades! I am still taking Motrin but only for a dull ache, not the stabbing knife twisting pain that I used to experience on my left ovary. I am so gratefully to God for Earth Clinic and for all of you who post cures here to help each other!


Adenomyosis

Last year (4/2013) I began to have heavy periods that would not stop. Prior History: I was on the Mirena for a full 5 years and then removed it. Besides the obvious birth control, it helped to control heavy periods. My cycle was very heavy days 1&2, slowly stopping and lasted to 7days on a 28 day cycle. I was told I had fibroids, had exams, ultrasounds, etc.

Fast forward back to 2013. I started to get my period twice a month. One day it began and never ended. I began to bleed so heavy I couldn't leave the house. I had to use a tampon and a pad, changing every hour, sometime more often. I was in the ER of 2 different hospitals. The first one did absolutely nothing. I was back in the ER again, had a transfusion, was admitted overnight and had a d&c. I was released. It continued.

The second ER had me follow up with the gyno. The gyno did a biopsy. No cancer. I ended up in the ER again and had another transfusion. I ended up having a heart attack in my sleep. Thank God I'm well. I had an endometrial ablation, was put on progesterone, and sent to a specialist to consult with about having surgery. A decision was made to have a full hysterectomy because my mother had died from ovarian cancer/tumor 4 years ago.

In my heart I did not want to have the hysterectomy. I have grown children and grandchildren. I prayed about it and asked God what I should do, that I trusted him to lead me how to recover from all of this. The answer was to stop the progesterone. I cut the daily espresso coffee and switch to green tea with organic honey. Next I stopped drinking regular 1% milk and switched to Almond Milk. It made sense because cows are injected with hormones to produce more milk rapidly. Fibroids are linked to too much estrogen. My periods stopped after December 2013.

Someone told me about this website. I read every comment. I prayed again. Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar, Unpasteurized, with "The Mother", was what I went with. I bought it in Walmart at $5 for a 32 oz bottle. I take 2 Tbs in 6 oz of water. I've been taking it since February 15? Still no bleeding(Yaaaa! ) and I've dropped 25 lbs over 3 months which could be from the fibroids shrinking.

My Cardiologist said the ACV wouldn't hurt me. Always check with your doctor if you are on any medication to see if it's okay. I went back the dr to consult about the hysterectomy surgery. Praise God, NO SURGERY NECESSARY! He said he'll see me next year. My advice is if you are bleeding heavy get the Apple Cider Vinegar w "The Mother" take 2 tablespoons in 6 to 8 oz of purified water(filtered, bottled, not tap) every morning 1/2 hour before you eat. I feel the ACV balances your PH levels which affect your hormones.

God bless you all for your suggestions and I hope my story helps.

Since 2008 I was suffering with heavy periods and in 2009 I went to accident and emrgency with flodding. I thought I was having a miscarriage but they said I had an infection and gave me antibiotics and was told to go and see my GP. I went to see him a a month later when my period started as it was heavier than when I went to the hospital. Well anyway he told me that at my age, 41, it was very normal to have heavy periods and did not listen to me that something was not right. Flash forward November 2013, I went to see a lady GP at the same surgery and she told me to go straight away and get a blood test done and gave me tranexamic tablets and made a referral to get a scan done.

At this point I was suffering with dizzyness, palpitations, a fuzzy head, whooshing in my ears sounding like a heartbeat, feeling faint, hot br eathless walking up stairs and long distances, diffuculty concentrating, hard to focus, fellings like my nose wanted to bleed, pain in hip and shoulder when layng down, feeling extremely cold, feeling extremely hot after walking up a flight of stairs, swollen ankles, heavy periods with flooding and enormous clots, cracks occasionally at the corners of my mouth, gurgling noises in my stomach even when I was not hungry, something feeling hard in my stomach, fatty deposits under my yes, occasionally extremely scaly skin on hands, and swollen ankles and I looked pregnant.

The following day after the blood test, Saturday morning, I received a call from the hospital telling me to go to accident and emergency straight away. My hb was 6.9 and they hooked me up straight away to give me a blood transfusion. I was given iron tablets and told if I felt dizzy or had any symptoms as before I had to go back. Now, early Monday morning my lady GP phoned me and told me to go and see her. She explained that I was severly anaemic and she prescribed me ferrous fumurate 210mg.

When I had the scan the lady doing it had to call in her colleague for a second opinion. She informed me I had 3 fibroids and that 1 of them was 12cm long. I went back to see my GP and she reiterated that I had fibroids and what looked like an ovarian cyst. She scheduled for me to see a gynacologist. At the appointment with her she informed me I would need a mymeoctomy ( sorry for the spelling) and that it was not guaranteed that I would not end up having a hysteractomy. Oh and she was going to remove an ovary. I left thee feeling numb and cried for a few days.

I decided I was going to take my health into my own hands and did many weeks of research. To cut a long story short I was addicted to sweets and I gave them up and anything that had an estrogenic effect on my body. So that meant organic meat and chicken but no pork, organic vegetables and fruits, no soda, herbal and green teas minus the 4 teaspoons of sugar I would add lol.I cut out fast food and eating out at restaurants and was now cooking at home. I also cut out anything white eg white bread, flour etc and had whole foods instead.

In the morning I would take Dim with cod liver oil, followed by a green smoothie with fruit with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar added and I would also take vitex. I would have the same for lunch but have different leafy greens and fruit in my smoothy for lunch. At dinner time I would have a home cooked meal and in the evening I may have a slice of spelt bread with oganic or wholefood peanut butter. I also included into the raw food diet into my regime and this hepled enormously with being able to eat cakes and biscuits made out of medjool dates and nuts and seeds. Believe me they do not taste as bad it sounds. They are scrumptious.

Now it is January and I have had my first period. I hardly noticed it unless I wiped. My stomach has shrank dramatically and the hardness in my stomach has gone. I must also add that I have a epsom salts bath 3-4 times a week followed by castor oil packs that I leave on overnight followed by a special massage when I take the castor oil pack off in the morning. I no longer look pregnant, have more energy than I can deal with lol, I look younger and so much more refreshed.

I say all this to say do your research, don't just listen to your doctors when they try to push surgery onto you and the mad thing is that after all of this surgery the fibroids have a good chance of coming back. Take control of your own lives and think positive.

Much love to the many womenon your fibroid and cyst journey.

Ps I have tried to condense my story but there is so much I would like to say to help other women. So sorry of you felt you were reading an essay (hugs to you all)

I was recently told I had multiple fibroids which in retrospect I must have suffered from for a very long time as I have always had heavy bleeding and cramping. I immediately started researching on a natural cure and landed on this site. I decided to try ACV (the filtered kind as I couldn't get the recommended one). I must say I was shocked at the results. My last period was without cramps at all. I used to get pains during ovulation but even that has not been painful at all this month. I'm still taking ACV hoping it's shrinking the fibroids and will definitely let you know when I go for the next scan. I'm still trying to get the organic unfiltered ACV as I think it will be more effective.

I was prompted to share this in the hope that some lady out there going through terrible menstrual pains will read this and try out ACV. I really works.


Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

Hi, I am new to this site and Very interested in reducing my Fibroids. 2 years ago I had a myomectomy and they were able to remove the fibroid. It has since come back and my periods are unbearable. I also have severe break-thru bleeding. My Dr. has put me on a higher dose of Birth control to control the bleeding. It has slowed down, but I don't like the side effects of the BC. I have been reading many posts of the ACV and Baking Soda.

I would like to know how long do you use this remedy. Is it everyday? And should I still take the birth control with this remedy? I am so so so desperate for help! My next step is a hysterectomy and I am not ready for that. I am only 31 years old. Please Help me!!

Thanks in advance!
Monica

Hi, fibroids feed on excess oestrogen, like birth control/pill etc, consider dairy milk has too much oestrogen = avoid. Also fibroids can form not from too much calcium but from deficiency in magnesium. Magnesium directs the calcium to the bones, when it's not there calcium builds up in tissue and joints causing pain. (Take magnesium in any form except oxide, perhaps magnesium malate as this is in the Apple Cider Vinegar too) I would suggest that on top of the Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda (on empty stomach) you research the benefits yourself and consider:

Kelp tablets ( for natural iodine) boosts immune system to fight fibroids
Vitamin D3 (immune system)
Blackstrap molasses (unsulphured)
Chaste berry(actively shrinks fibroids)
Flaxseed oil or boil flaxseeds 20 mins for tea (removes excess oestrogen)
Chickweed in tea or pills (actively shrinks fibroids)
Digestive enzymes esp serrapeptase, but not at meal times(eats fibroids, tumors, arterial plaque)
Zinc (deficiency can allow fibroids to form, zinc is required for immune system)

Also eat less meat (hormones) unless organic can eat same amount.
No coffee
Green tea is very good if organic
Add turmeric to hot drinks for inflammation
Kombucha is good because it contains enzymes, just not as much as the pills.

A good and diverse probiotic tablet from fridge in health store will assist the immune system.
Hopefully you are already taking vitamin c (immune support) from a whole food source. Ascorbic acid is only one component of wholefood vit c.
The blackstrap molasses can reduce the amount of bleeding. By the way, you probably have chickweed in your garden, I add mine to kombucha to make a kind of tincture.
Avoid processed salt, vegetable and canola oils, (body treats as toxins)
Replace with unrefined sea salt, coconut oil for cooking, (so many health benefits here)

Best to you on your health journey

After almost 4 years, I'm signing in again to report that my fibroid is gone! Actually, it was a long and painful road, but something caused it to go from being a submucosal fibroid (it had also been diagnosed as being intramural) to "a fibroid in statu nascendi".

A few months ago, after having 6 osteopath treatments over a period of approximately 3 months, I experienced horrible pains 2 days after my period started. It was just like giving birth and lasted hours. I had no idea what was happening and after the (extreme) pain subsided, I fell asleep exhausted only to awake with a huge mass descending into my vaginal canal. I thought that I had experienced a bladder, bowel or uterus prolapse and spent the next couple of weeks visiting doctors searching for answers. My GP referred me to a gynecologist who informed me that my uterus had prolapsed and that I would need a complete hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix! The second gynecologist tried to make me believe that the the prolapsed mass was a huge cancerous tumour. It was clear, however, from the ultrasound that none of my organs had prolapsed and that the huge mass, at least in my opinion, must have been the fibroid. Neither of these doctors would confirm that it was the fibroid and so I went searching for yet another opinion. I was finally able to get a 3rd diagnosis at a renowned teaching hospital, where it was confirmed that I had a "fibroid in statu nascendi" and was quickly scheduled for an outpatient hysteroscopic surgery. The fibroid had somehow broken out of the wall of my uterus and the pain that I had experienced during my last period was actually my body giving birth to it. The surgery was performed without any complications and the recovery was a breeze. I didn't even need any pain killers after waking up from the surgery or in the days that followed.

What caused this enucleation, I am not sure. Diet (non-meat, low dairy, lots of fruit & vegetables) and exercise (running) certainly made a difference with regard to reducing symptoms and slowing growth. The other important thing that I believe aided my recovery was the osteopath. Osteopathic manipulations were performed to ensure that my body was properly aligned, with a special focus on my uterus, liver, bladder, bowels, etc. My uterus was found to be located too much to the right and with very gentle manipulations, it was recentered. Soon after that, my fibroid pushed out of the walls and prolapsed, hanging by a stem from the uterine wall.

Months later, I am feeling better than ever. It is like having a new life. No painful periods, no excessive bleading, no anaemia. In fact, I haven't taken any ibuprofen or iron since before the surgery. I sometimes slip from eating a healthy diet and must constantly remind myself to stick to it and exercise regularly. It is key. I started seeing the osteopath again to ensure that everything stays aligned. My last gynecological examination showed a healthy uterus and ovaries.

I can truly say that when taking 2tbs. of ACV and a squeeze of lemon juice, it cured my fibroid and I lost weight. I went to the doctor and had the Mirena (IUD) placed in to control the heavy bleeding. During my 6weeks checkup the IUD apprently came out. I was sent to have an ultrasound done and the fibroid had degenrated. I also lost 22pounds in 6weeks. My doctor wanted to removed my uterus, but I prayed about it said no to the surgery. Thank God for ACV!!!!

I'm surprised serrapeptase is not mentioned in conjunction with other recommendations.

  • Fibroids are also susceptible to being dissolved by high-dose enzyme therapy. The enzyme SERRAPEPTASE is particularly effective for this purpose. Keep the bottle of enzymes by your bedside and take 250,000 SPU with a little water first thing in the morning and last thing at night, at least 2 hours after eating. The point is for the enzymes to digest the fibroids, not your food.
  • The late Guy Abraham M.D., found that iodine (2% or 5% Lugol's Iodine) was really good to use in estrogen dominant diseases, including fibroids. Or you can supplement with kelp daily.
  • Both vitamins A and D (5,000 IU daily) have been shown to reduce fibroid tumor growth.
  • Resveratrol, a pigment found in red grape skins, causes a potent “anti-fibrotic” effect by reducing type I and III collagen levels so that should be recommended.
  • Chasteberry (vitex), as mentioned, and pokeroot will help regulate the estrogen.
  • Castor oil packs, as mentioned, are excellent for the lymphatic system and assist in improving circulation, stagnation and elimination of benign tumors in women, especially those who suffer from uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts. But this is a time consuming protocol if done properly (good video on YouTube titled, 'Castor Oil Packs For Fibroid Tumors' that helps explain in detail).

Note, if you are a daily coffee drinker (drink green tea instead) or eat red meat frequently, both have been shown to worsen symptoms.


Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

I came across Apple Cider Vinegar baking sida for fibroids on this site. I decided to try it after the molasses seemed to be ineffective. My lower abdomen was growing like a pregnant belly. I couldn't sleep on my belly, there was a hard lump on the right side where my three small fibroids are. Within a month of taking it 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar and 2.5 ml aluminum-free baking soda with a cup of water first thing in the morning and last thing at night, that lump was gone and I realized some weight loss. I haven't gone to do the ultra sound to see the size of the fibroids but my belly looks flatter, I've lost some good weight, my clothes fit better, and I have more energy. I cut out gluten, and animal products from my diet about one year now and there had been no weight loss, but the acv/bs has shrunk me, lol. I was about 160 pounds before starting d regime and had to be getting new clothes for work but in this my second month I can fit into clothes that I couldn't even get on me 2 months ago.

Different things work for different folk but this one surely works for me. I've had some very wonderful "side effects" for example increased vaginal lubrication. I hope that this helps someone as others have helped me too.

Hello, to tell you a little history of my health issue. Over 3 years ago I experienced my menstrual cycle lasting longer and longer and I checked with a couple Ob-Gyn's who really did not listen to me. While moving to another state, the first visit to a general practitioner she asked me have you had an ultra-sound done. I went to get an ultra sound done and they found a cyst on my ovary and I had fibroids. Great.... well at least I know what it was that was causing this additional bleeding. I went to see an Ob'Gyn and she told me to go on the pill to reduce the cyst that started to work but the bleeding from the fibroids got worst to the point I bled for 3 months straight without stopping and the doctor did not seem concerned or knew what was going on. I was desparate and tried looking for home remedies and found this website. Never heard of apple cider vinegar until I found this site and I tried Ted's remedy. That is ACV with baking soda and the bleeding ceased in less that one day. I take six to eight ounces of water with two tablespoon of ACV organic and quarter teaspoon of baking soda twice a day and it works for me. Thank you all for posting your experiences on this website.It is greatly helped me. I have my second opinion coming up and will give an update if the cyst and fibroids have shrunk. I will also try the blackstrap molasses for my anemia. God Bless You!

I suffered from VERY heavy bleeding and was diagnosed with uterine polyps and possible fibroids. First was told hysterectomy; I didn't want this so I was prescribed a hormone; made the cramping, etc., WORSE; a year later I had more tests - same problem, heavy bleeding & cramping - the tests (such as saline ultrasound) were so UNCOMFORTABLE and no relief, still recommended surgery which I really didn't feel comfortable about. I searched "natural remedies for fibroids, heavy bleeding, etc." and found this site. Tried ACV and black strap molasses first (1 dose of the molasses-could NOT handle that!); then tried the ACV with baking soda (2 TBSP natural ACV from health food store and 1/2 to 1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 8 oz water once daily has worked for me). I started this in August; it is now November and I feel SO MUCH BETTER! It is unbelievable - very little bleeding at regular cycle time - little to no cramping; and I was in misery before-periods lasted for weeks and would only stop for a few days and then start again. I no longer have that problem-haven't since I started the ACV & baking soda in August. It WORKS!

How long were you taking the molasses before the fibroid shrunk?

I also have very painful menstruation with heavy bleeding turning into big clots n my cycle has increased from 3- 6 days and these days are nightmare of my life. Always have to take off from office for 3 days and take 6 fenac plus after 6-7 hours on diagonsis, got to know that I have a fibroid in uterus and multiple choclate cyst in ovaries.

Now I will also try 2 tbps Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/4 tbs Baking soda so that my menses pain also goes away and fibroids get disappears.

My query is do we have to take 7 days a week for full whole month??

Do we have to take during menstruation cycle or not??

For 2 tbps apple cider vinegar n 1/4 tbs baking soda in 1 glass of water or half glass of water???

When I had my first baby the surgeon for the emergency csection commented on how many fibroids were in my uterus (disheartening!). :(. Then when I found out I was prego with number two I researched and found that a research team had success shrinking fibroid tumors in rats by giving them vitamin d.

When my son was taken by csection the surgeon said that he saw no fibroids!
