After reading all the posts it seems that dairy products are not good for Fibroids since they have growth harmones. What if we can take organic milk and home made yogurts made with organic milk. Same for organic eggs, etc? Yogurts have got friendly bacterias.. Want to know what Ted's research says about it.
I found out recently that I may possibly have a fibroid in my abdominal area. The thing is the doctors are not sure and they want me to have surgery to get it out to see if the growth is cancerous or not. The doctors said if it is cancerous, they are going to have to take either my uterus out or my ovaries and possibly my appendix. I am a 26 years old with no children, and may want some in the future. The growth is noticeable since I am petite. The growth is 15. 5 cm long and 14 cm wide. It is above my uterus so I still get my periods every month and I don't have any pain with this growth, just a little discomfort on my uterus from the size of the growth. I want to treat this just like any tumor rather it's benign or not. Can you please email me some remedies to rid this growth? I already changed my diet and started taking supplements like Quint Essence, Flaxseed oil capsules, fish oil capsules, and Vitamin C capsules. I stop eating red meat, and eat fish, turkey, and chicken purchased from Whole Foods Market. I eat my salads with apple cider vinegar. Please help. Thanks.
Hi, I have Fibroids too, and suffered as you guys too. I read alot about this kind of thing and read that drinking coffee doesn't help! So i stopped drinking coffee, I only drank 2 cups a day. And now my periods r normal. No more heavy, where you can't walk from here to there...no more clots, that scares the heck out of ya. Thats been over a year now, and I'm still doing fine. And I also eat grapes every day, green or red. Not a specific amount, I just eat them.I HOPE this helps someone, I really do!! I feel for you all.
Black strap molasses:
I had a protuding fibroid the size of a GRAPEFRUIT---that was trying to abort itself through my cervix. Before I almost bled to death I had it surgically cut out. It developed over 6 months and just after I was prescribed birth control pills (hormones)from an obgyn. I stopped the pills after two weeks but the fibroid continued to grow.
i gulped bs molasses from the jar after the surgery. Then i stopped drinking that nasty bsm and eliminated the birth control pills. I changed my diet. No meat, eggs,( which is full of hormones ) no fish, and minimal dairy products and (only if RBST free or goats milk.) LOW FAT, HIGH FIBER is good. I eat kale on my sandwhiches instead of lettuce etc.
I eat sour kraut and drink water water water. I HAVE NOT HAD ONE INCIDENCE SINCE 2003. THATS ABOUT 6 YEARS.
If I slip up on this regimen, I notice it. My next period is clotty, lasts longer, and is more painfull, the tint is red/orange. ---TIME TO get my diet back on track BUCKLE DOWN!

I have read your site about black strap molasses and "hoping" to get rid of fibroid tumors. I have tryed it and it didn't work for me. I think this site is just a way of getting people's hope up. I had my hope up on trying this molasses thing, like i said it didn't work for me. nothing can get rid of fibroids. if there was, the doctors would tell you, and we would't have to have a hysteromecty's. think about it...it's something that grows inside of you..if there was a cure in molasses wouldn't they tell you?? I really don't believe in this stuff. I have tryed it and i can't speak for everyone...but it didn't work for me. Were all here for a little hope and cure, but really it doesn't work.the only thing i did was to cut out coffee, something i found out on my own..as far as im concerned, that helped me alot!! no more heavy periods. now there normal and i have 2 fibroid tumors and they were almost the size of a baseball. i'm not sure if they are gone yet, i still have to go to the doctors to find out, but my period is back to normal. thank you..

I have had a very large uterine fibroid. Three months ago it was about the size of a small cantaloupe and could easily be felt. When last measured by ultrasound a couple of years ago it was the size of a 14 week pregnancy. I did not want the prescribed historectomy and have been looking for a natural cure. About Jan 8 I made some changes in my lifestyle and my fibroid is now the size of a baseball or smaller. I don't know which things have worked but, these are the changes I've made: Started Lougaol's Iodine (6-7 drops per day) BSM 1 TBSP per day, dramatically rudeced wheat consumption, regular excercise, switched to bottled water and no flouride tooth paste, and now what it turns out may be the MOST important thing. I went from drinking 2-3 diet pepsi's per day to maybe one or two a week. I will now cut that out completely after reading the report I'm attaching to here http://myaspartameexperiment.com/ I strongly encourage anyone who consumes Aspertame and suffers from any type of tumor to read about this experiment and STOP Aspertame now!!!!
I have been reading about how people are using Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Black Strap Molasses (BSM) to shrink fibroid tumors. I used low fat vegan and raw diet and I am fibroids free. Nutrition does wonders for the body and helps its ability to heal. I started out with a vegetarian and organic lifestyle after getting fed up with allopathic medicine's appproach to the fibroids I had. I progressed to a vegan and organic nutrition and I transitioned to a raw, vegan nutrition and the fibroids are all gone. I also used herbs and spices such as Vitex (chasteberry), red raspberry leaves, astragalus, garlic, ginger, turmeric, dandelion leaves and roots, milk thistle, cramp bark, fenugreek, red clover, and squaw vine in my regimen.
Within the first week of eating a wholly plant-based diet, all my symptoms were gone. I gained a surge in energy and three months later, overcame chronic anemia that had persisted for three years. The tumors started to shrink and my hormones started to balance; I was no longer irritable. I have since been cured of mood swings, PMS, breast tenderness and fibroids. I also had a tumor on my liver that disappeared as well and I lost 38 pounds without any extra effort. I now have energy for brisk walks, bike rides, weights, yoga and pilates. I am now a firm believer in nutrition and herbs as remedies for all kinds of ailments. There are a lot of research about the effectiveness of nutrition and herbs in curing all kinds of ailments. I shocked the doctors who wanted to surgically remove the fibroids and who told me there was no cure. I am tumor free and I thank all the people who share their experiences on the web and I also thank medical doctors who are using nutrition to help their patients. It is true that we are what we eat.
Please can anyone tell me the right supplements and foods that can help in shrinking fibroid?
my name is ruth,I used flax seed to cure my fibroid tumors. I would grind them in my coffee grinder . Then I would use about 2tsp a day and sprinkle them over my salad . I found it easier to eat them that way . I also would make flaxseed bread I would use about a 1/2 cup in my loaf of bread . It is very important to grind the flaxseed up to get the benfit of the seeds. Other wise the seeds will just pass right threw you . I did this for about a year and when I went back and had my ultra sound they were gone . I also had a tumor in my breast . I was benine but that also disappeared as well . I never tryed the BSM because I never heard about it working on tumors until now. I end up have a historectomy because my uterus fell . but I still take it so I don't get any tumors in my breast.
I have a friend living in toledo, ohio where I stayed only three years ago, my gyn doctor is there who diagnosis me with Fibroids in 1996. I have a case where mine shrinked and one passed based on using a natural remedy my friend gave me. Take Flax seed water soluble capsules and make sure they are the purest form, along with lysine it works. The one that passed was stuck in my opening but the doctor pulled it out and tested it. He found nothing. When I stop taking the products one grew almost an inch. I have since began the regiment again, this time I won't stop till they are gone.
Last May 18, 2010 I was diagnosed of a cervical cancer (squamous cell carcinoma) of the cervix. My obgyne told me to undergo for chemo, radiation and brachy theraphy, due to financial problem I just underwent 6 days of radiation theraphy. After a year my sympthoms of the cancer was present again. I read about garlic and ginger as a herbal medicine for cervical cancer. I tried garlic first cut it in a smaller pieces and take it with water. After a month the foul smell coming from my genital was gone. After sometime I read about ginger as an ovaarian cancer cell killer. I tried it also I grated it and take it just like taking medicine together with water. After a month believe me there are fibroids that come out of my genital. I continue taking ginger and garlic to be sure that the cell will be gone and not come back anymore. I have pictures of the fibroids that were released from my body.

I was someone who had a big fibroid (8-11 cm) but little did I realize how big that really is until a doctor pointed it out to me. I didn't believe any of my doctors who said that I must consider surgery. I thought they just want to make money, that's all! I kept coming to this site most of all and read bleeding experiences of women whos bleeding would miraculously stop on ACV etc. None of these women reported their condition a few months from their severe bleeding episodes. So I kept hoping my fibroid would just disappear or at the most the symptoms would come to an end. I was WRONG. I would just keep looking for & trying natural remedies one after another while my condition kept getting worse and I ended up in the ER 4-5 times, with profuse bleeding, gigantic clots, high pulse rate (you can die if the bleeding isn't controlled) and was given blood transfusions multiple times, my levels had dropped as low as 6! Finally I relented for a surgery after struggling with pain, anemia, fatigue and bleeding for 5 YEARS! I have been the happiest since, with my energy back and am no more anemic for the first time in life and my blood levels are in the range of 12-14 without taking iron pills! My request to all women is, if you are consistently having severe symptoms, don't take health into your own hands or even surrender it to naturopaths. Just go to the traditional doctors! You'll be glad you did. Mainstream medicine and doctors saved my life! Please be smart to know when to stop trying natural remedies and when to trust the medical industry. This site is a great resource otherwise!
Good morning, On an older fibroid post, I believe it was Tom who mentioned that fibroids were mainly caused by fungus. I wanted him to speak more to that and if by fungus, did he mean candida or something to that effect? I have fibroids and find all this info and site VERY helpful. I look forward to hearing back.
I am 23 years old not yet married. I'm feeling a big pain while I'm sleeping and during my period. I went to doctor to check with ultrasound and it shown that I have 7cm fibroid inside my uterus he said its very dangerous and you should remove it as soon as possible and before u get married. Is it true or better to leave it and remove after I get married? And is it possible to get pregnant if I have that big and inside the uterus? Is it possible to be something other than fibroid like baby or something else cuz I did sex with my fiance? Please help I am worry
