Ted, How do you make bromelain? Is there anyone out there that has had success with using bromelain to get rid of fibroids. How long did it take?

Hi everyone. So I went to the doctor and was told I had 2 small ovarian cyst and 2 small fibroids... Started searching for a remedy and found a product called Fibroid clear by botanical health it works-fibroids are gone. I also purchased this book called the Anti-estrogenic diet-it changeg my life my health-and I am sure it assisted in getting rid of the fibroids. Going to go to whole foods and get the Apple Cider Vinegar and mollasses for the cyst-so will let you know how that goes... Also for that person with legs cramps it is probably a calcium deficiency! And will fix the problem. Mandi in california! Oh that book is by ori hofmekier you can order it on amazon.
Has any one has uterine ebolization done? I am thinking of having one done. I have had a fibroid removed and it came back like years ago. Now its as big as a cantaloupe. I need help to decide which better way to cure it without surgery. Or some remedies that will help me get rid of it. My Doctor said it is pushing my bladder and kidney. Please help.

Hi good day to all, I came across to this website some few days ago and just the same with the rest of you here I am currently diagnosed with fibroids which is intramural that means it is inside my uterus although I am asymptomatic but I have heavy bleeding but not much of the cramps, as of right now I am on a monthly hormonal injection called luprolex. Anybody had this type of treatment before? Pls give me some feedback. I want to try ACV but I want to know if there are contraindications when taking this remedy. I really want my fibroids to shrink and I am going to try any possibility as long as it is not hysterectomy and also I want to know when is the best time to take it- before or after meals and how many minutes before or after you eat? pls send me some tips so I can do it the right way. Thanks so much.
Sharon, I live in los angeles and am glad to know. I am not alone in this fibroid tumor battle. I could not become pregnant because of this fibroid condition. I too refuse to get a hysterectomy and still refuse. I just had a pap march and an ultrasound. The fibroids has gotten larger. I did buy flax seed plus. I am fifty one and have been battling this problem since I was thirty three years old. I appreciate Ted sharing this vital information. My fibroids block my uterus. I want to thank everyone for there input and testimony. I will lift all of us up in prayer. I wanted at least two children. It never happened. I am the only one in my family with no children. I love children. I am right there with you ladies.
A hysterectomy may lead to a prolapse about 5-10 years down the road. The uterus is not just there for holding a fetus; it's very important in helping support the abdominal organs such as the intestines and the bladder. The abdominal organs stay in place due to a network of ligaments and pelvic floor muscles. When the uterus is removed as in a hysterectomy, this support system is greatly weakened and so these other organs have a lot less support, and tend to fall down or move into spaces they normally don't. (please google images) If you have a partial hysterectomy, the top of the vagina could fall down; sometimes the bladder herniates and sometimes the bowel moves into places it should not- all these lead to more surgeries down the road.
Interestingly, when my OB suggested hysterectomy to me for my fibroids, I do not remember her saying one single word about a prolapse down the road. I wonder if she is shilling for the OB surgeon. It's also possible that prolapse happens more often if you have a weak pelvic floor to begin with; but, as a woman ages, her ligaments and muscles get weaker anyhow, and chances of prolapse get higher even if she has a normal pelvic floor. I do not want to contribute to that by having a hysterectomy- not if my fibroid symptoms aren't that bad.

I'm 43 and found out about 5/6 years ago I had a 1" cm tumor in my uterus and every year I had my physical and complained of heavy bleeding and abdominal pain. And my doctor never ordered anymore test ultra sounds ect. So this last summer I insisted and she had her nurse call to tell me it grew and to see the gynecolgist she reffered and do whatever he says. The gynecologist himself called me and said it grew and there were now multiple tumors and my uterus is enlarged becasue of it. So we're trying to reduce the size with birth control pills but he's almost positive they can't just be removed I may need a hysterectomy.
Now I'm furious because my own doctor could have watched them and I could have caught them in time for just the tumor to be removed now it's too late.
I wanted to know if this is medical neglect or not?
i saw people using the mixture of beets and carrots and non alcoholic wine for cysts and fibroids- I just want to clarify, is it beetleaves (green) or red beet.. Many thanks

Fibroids: Tampons & Pads
Regarding Tampons and Pads: Ladies all tampons and pads are bleached with CHLORINE unless you are buying organic/non-bleached natural cotton items.
Chlorine is very toxic it creates a by-product Dioxin which is harmful and linked to cancer and tumors (google it). You can buy cotton items at any natural health food store or online (they are expensive but worth it). I would recommend buying these especially for women with Fibroids.
Fibroids: I am 52 years old. I am on Zoladex (generic name Goserelin) to help breast cancer and it helped shrink the 6 cm fibroid in my uterus. However, it has flared up again despite the strong medication. I believe it is because I recently started dairy products after abstaining for a year because of press reports about a link with breast cancer. I have also been using natural progesterone cream which in my case is not balancing estrogen as it is zero in my blood analysis BECAUSE THE DRUG lowered it to zero. I suspect the cream may have also fed the benign egg because I have used it together with this drug without specialist advice. It may have fed the fibroid. I tried ACV and it immediately helped.
Hi ladies, i'm thankful for you all and hearing your stories let me feel connected to a sista hood of women whom i've never met who is experiencing the same as i am so now i don't feel so all alone with this dreadful medical problem!I just want my life back and this is taking my body over daily. It makes me not even want to have a sexual relationship with my husband cause i feel like a good-year blimp! I take the avc with the (Mother) in it and the bsm and i do get relief from both. The avc does help control your weight but my question to you ladies is:
How long must we stay on these short term remedy? 4EVER... EVERYDAY TAKING THESE SHORT TERM REMEDIES THE WILL NEVER GIVE US A COMPLETE SOLUTION?? I hate the fact that when we give birth 2 bring beautiful kids into the world after that our bodies go through SOOOOOOOO... MUCH AND MEN HAVE NO ISSUES AT ALL!!
I'm just 36 and i feel like my life is OVER dealing with this crap. Doctor's always want to cut on us so we can go into menopause early and have to go to them for more medical issues and bills.. this is how they make their money. Anyway, to the point @ hand. I did find out that having the partial hysterectomy will allow them not to return because by having it done they want grow back because the uterus wall allows them to reattach to something, by removing it..there's nothing 4 them to grow on because there's nothing there. I still don't know what to do even with that info because i'm scared of early menopause. Someone please give me your input.
EC: You don't mention your ailment, but we think you are referring to fibroids...
I passed out and hit my head on the bed, because I lost so much blood. I went to the hospital in an ambulance. My doctor did a new procedure and a DNC. There was a girl there who was 16 years old who had her fibroids removed, how is this possible? I was so scared, but I came through, by the grace of God. I tried all of it and it didn't work.
I wish I knew what I was suffering from for 10 years then I would have gone on herbs but I was past that as I was fainting from lack of blood from severe bleeding and my womb prolapsed with the fibroids. I thought I had a heart problem as the symtoms was high blood pressure. I am now well and living with my scars as I also had T/L. So it is healthy living and stress free life for me.
Fibriods: Hey All, I have tried everything, bsm and all. I read on and found that coffee that has caffeine has alot to do with it, I drank coffee every day,when I read that it wasn't good for you making your estrogen go hay wire, I decided to stop! I try something that I have read on here what someone else wrote, and I swear by it!! I had heavy periods and the whole thing. Believe me!! So I decided to try what that person wrote, and I did, It was grapes & bing Cherries!! It's been over a year and my periods are normal, and no more heavy bleeding and no more blood clots. I swear my this thing. My blood count is up & my red blood cells are ok now. So 3 things to remember: No more coffee and eat grapes & cherries!! And you'll be ok, at least I am. My doctor wanted me to go for a hysteromy, but in the mean time I decide to try the grapes & cherries, no more heavy periods & clots, they are normal now. Maybe it's a conscience, not sure but something helped me, and I eat them every day!! And I'm fine now. :) Hope this helps someone, because I know I was desperate!!!
I tried grapeseed extract for menstrual flooding associated with fibroids. I took 3 - 90 mg tablets 4 times a day and my menstrual was the closest to normal it's been in years. Also mother tried it for the same problem and was well pleased! I am happy!
