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!

Has anyone looked into green tea for fibroids? Attached is an article detailing a recent study done in Egypt using green tea to shrink fibroids and an article pulled off of Pubmed regarding the same study (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)

After reading Ann's (Calgary) testimony, I decided to give Medorrhinum 1M ago for fibroids. I had a myomectomy 8 years ago but the fibroids grew back bigger and lots of them...with all the discomfort: anaemia, tiredness, constipation from iron tablets....
I took 3 pellets on 11 /11/15. I was sleeping longer but was sharp and fit upon waking up. Which is a miracle!
I took the 2nd dose on 25/11/15 ( my periods began that same day and came so calmly with no pain or symptoms at all! ). The 26/11/15 evening I started bleeding profusely with a lot of fresh looking clots but no pain! The more I bled, the better I felt. For the first time ever I didn't feel tired or weak after bleeding so much! My swollen stomach went physically down. My hair and nails grew stronger and looked cleaner, I could clean, tidy and cook, read. Usually I am bed bound in pain and can' t lift a finger!
My elimination is perfect (after every meal) or just after a walk! My mind is clearer, I can now read and remember...
I made a mistake with the first dose and took my iron and Vit D3 tablets 2 days after taking it. I felt very uncomfortable. I stop. Last Saturday(28/11/15) I felt sick and vomitted at night 11.45pm) but I was rather relieved afterwards and slept like a baby.
I am fit and look refreshed and "clean" usually I look weak and tired during and after my periods....
I read that you should not drink coffee and herbal teas with Medorrhinum. How long after taking it can I have coffee/herbal teas? I used to drink a lot of green tea, milk thistle... and ground coffee every now and then. I sometimes do crave coffee in this weather...
I also used to massage my lower abdomen with some essential oils. When is it ok to resume?
Are there other "Don'ts" when taking Medorrhinum? Please share with us. I will update my progress and hope everything goes well and will help somebody else. Thanks. Annie.
Hello, I have had excellent success treating fibroids which I I suffered with for 20 Years.
I took homeopathic Medorrhinum 1M strength. Simply take 3 pellets dry to dissolve in mouth. Two weeks later take another 3 pellets. That's it. I did not take any of the other remedies listed on the page. I did try the thuja but did not like how it made me feel so I stopped there. I have stopped taking iron pills and do not suffer from anemia anymore. I have excellent mental and physical energy now as I did when I was 20.
Medorrhinum 1M is strong. Remember when you take homeopathic medicine you may feel worse initially before you feel better. The aggravations are fine that will occur. Do not take any medicine to counteract any strong symptoms that arise and do not go to the doctor. They are temporary for a few days then go away permanently. You may feel odd for about 3 weeks as your body heals. For example after taking the first dose I was very sleepy for about 4 or 5 days. this is my body beginning to heal. All anger or sadness left my mind. In the subsequent weeks I became extremely clear headed, like a normal person is and energized. The whole process took a month.
When taking homeopathy presently and in future months, it is important not to take ANY mint/menthol products nor use or inhale camphor or eucalyptus products. No coffee and avoid herbal teas. All these products can antidote the remedy. You can order this remedy from a health food store that sells homeopathic remedies or online from a supplier.

How does the Iodine paint for fibroids work? If Ted is there to answer would be wonderful. Not many posts about it. What I have understood after reading the research parers of Dr. S on iodine is that the Table salt in the U.S. has iodide in it and no iodine. Thus if we want to start taking the Lugol's for fibroids it will have both Iodine and Iodide too in it. So what should be the strength of Lugol's to start with and what dosage should be good for our bodies. My age is 40 and have 2 fibroids 2cms. Causing heavy bleeding with clots.

I have a 10cm fibroid (or did a month ago) I started painting iodine (inexpensive tincture of iodine, the kind you put on cuts) on my skin twice a day. About a 2 inch square patch in different places once in am, once in pm. I used to lie down and feel this large hard lump on my right side. It never went away. I have awful periods with horrible pain. This is why I went to emergency where they did ultrasound and found the 10cm fibroid. This was a month ago. I've tried so much to get rid of this thing and spent so much. Progesterone made it bigger. DIM helped with breast tenderness before period but did nothing else. Enzymes, nothing. Vitamins, ridding myself of detergents and lotions, etc. Did not help. My head spun when I read all the herbs and diets and supplements people were taking to get rid of their fibroids.
Then I read extensive writings about iodine. I bought a couple bottles and started painting it on my skin. A mere two weeks later and I can't feel the bump anymore. There is a fibroid yet though. I can feel a smaller lump very far down a little right of pubic bone, but where is the rest of it? At night when my bladder is full and I lay on my back I can feel the fibroid but about a third as big. Remember, it's only been two weeks. I do nothing more. I take iron because I lose so much blood each month. I randomly take a B-complex or cod liver oil or other vitamin pills just because I have so many that I bought to help get rid of this thing. But I don't take anything regularly. It's been about 5 years since my periods started getting bad. I'm waiting for the first one since iodine and am hopeful. (actually I started iodine 2 days before period. The pain killers were cut by one third-perhaps just a coincidence)
How could something like iodine shrink my fibroid so quickly? I truly am afraid to hope. But hope I will. And I will return to let you know how it works. Good luck to all dealing with these things and God help speed your recovery.

Iodine is working with enzymes to shrink my uterine fibroids. You poor thing you don't know if you have uterine fibroids, is your gut getting fat, but not necessarily the rest of you? Did anyone ask you if you were pregnant? there should did me, my man upset with me because of this drastic change said, "everyday's a vacation for you lying around" At that time we didn't know I was suffering from fibroids. Even super model Beverly Johnson said it took her 4 years for proper diagnosis! Are you weak bladdered? menstrual cycles heavy and long term, with clots in the maxipad-fatigued aneamic? hormonal, libidoless? stressed, constipated? Fibroids push down or up on other organs, causing organs not to function properly. You are tired but don't know why, your family sees you have changed but cannot help, the doctors misdiagnose you. B-Vitamins deficiency, Iodine deficiency can lead to Cystic Breasts (lumpy) and uterine Fibroids. This is probably the 4th year of my battle, and having just learned in late June/July of 2009 I feel alive again. My boyfriend dumped me because he suffered too long with bad diagnosises and lack of closeness-He doesn't care anymore-So last week he dumped me, but now that I'm new, it's like being reborn and knowing it's only going to get better and stronger! What boyfriend? suck it Ryan! Here I come world. Iodine terminates that crap in your body and regulates your heart, makes your breasts soft and supple and smooth. What a miracle cure. Why is it the things from our creator: God are often forgotten, in lieu or man made, manufactured, genetically enhanced poison?

I wanted to share with you and all your readers the great benefit I have experenced taking conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to reduce fibroid tumors. I have never actually been diagnosed with fibroids, but they do run in my family. My mother, aunt and older sister have had hysterectomies because of out-of-control fibroids which threatened to kill them from hemorraging. Somewhere about the time I turned 40 years old I started experiencing heavy periods. Around the same time I had started taking CLA for weight control and some of the other benefits I had read about (it's good for preventingtumors of all kinds). I hadn't made the connection yet, but my period had become regulated without my noticing. For whatever reason I stopped taking the CLA for quite some period of time. (I tend to take supplements for a time and then run out and forget to get more. ) Perhaps a couple of years passed and I not only began to get heavy flows every month, but they might continue for more than a week--sometimes as much as two weeks! I also was in so much pain that my husband had to pull me out of the bed because it hurt so much to sit up on my own. I actually blew out my kidneys (which were already failing) with all the acedominophen and ibuprophen that I was taking. I began to worry that I might suffer the same fate as my mother and sister. But them the Lord reminded me that I had read that CLA works to shrink tumors. I started taking it again--just one 1000 mg capsule daily. By the time my next period came the flow was back to normal, lasting no more than a week. I really don't remember when the pain subsided because I was then in the throes of dialysis and all that entails, but that's another story. Some time later, my other sister called complaining of extremely heavy periods that lasted two weeks. I was very excited to be able to recommend to her to take CLA. I gave her a partially filled bottle that I had. She never mentioned having any problems after that. I guess she forgot her troubles and had moved on normally with her life. When I asked her about it she told me that she had indeed been able to regulate her period to normal by the very next peiod. Since then I have also been able to recommend to my cousin the same treatment, and she has also experienced miraculous results by the next menstrual period. I praise God who gives us the tools and the increase to help our bodies to heal themselves.

When I was 69, I was using a small amount of topical hormones and knew that I had Uterine Fibroids and a thick Endometrium for about 12 years. Finally the doctor said it was dangerous to go on like this and I would need to go OFF all Hormones and have a 2nd Uterine Ultrasound, after 6 weeks had passed. The doctor thought the hormones were part of the problem. A Hysterectomy was in my future. I said I would stop using them but I didn't.
I had recently started taking Lugol's Solution (5%) Iodine and was at about 50 mg. minimum at that time. I increased it slowly to 100 mg. during that 6 weeks.
When I went back to my doctor for the results, she said "so you stopped the hormones?" I replied that I did, just so not to get in trouble. My Uterine thickness had now gone back to normal and the Fibroids had all shrunk in that 6 weeks time.
Dr. David Brownstein's book said Lugol's was used for any Fibroids and it turned out to be true.

I suffered with fibroids for many years. The turning point came when I used lugols iodine as an enema. I had used it years before as drops in water but it didn't do much. Now use 1/2 teaspoon in about 2 cups spring water in an enema bag I get from the drugstore. I leave it in my body for 5-15 min. I feel great now. No more fatigue or mental fog. I speak more intelligently. I am no longer sensitive to heat at night. Have lots of energy. Have stopped the iron pills. I also take 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses with some peanut butter. That's better than the molasses alone. A holistic nurse on this site wrote that they do that in her hospital for patients that refuse transfusions. It works great. You do the molasses and peanut butter 1-3 times per day depending on how serious the anemia is. But the iodine enema is what really changed my life. The directions are in the following article from marksdailyapple.com:
ENEMA - Use a Fleet enema bottle. Empty out contents, wash out with hot water. Wipe off lubricated tip thoroughly with a dry paper towel and wash with hot water. Do not use any detergent! Fill up bottle with room temp water poured through a coffee filter. Preferable to boil water in glass container and let cool. Add up to 1/2 teaspoon of Lugol's. After a few enemas, it can be increased to one teaspoon. Avoid spilling, it stains. To lubricate tip, use only olive oil, butter, vitamin E gel. Do not use any commercial chemical lubricants. Do tuhe enema. Hold it in for 5 to 15 minutes or as long as you can. Initially, you may only be able to hold it in for a few minutes. It is preferable to lie down. Expect loads of mucus, gel, trash, undigested food and several movements within hours as mucus keeps coming out. If you're mucus loaded up, repeat enema daily for 2, 3 or 4 days. Then, once a week for 4 weeks until mucus/trash free. Maintenance, one enema a month.
I had a problem with fibroids. My O. B. Said it was the size of a 4 month fetus. Recommended it out. I don't know if this is the usual treatment, but my naturopath, who had never failed me.. Put me on Maca, 2 capsules 2 to 3 times daily and Essiac Tea. Not only did it work but it gave me energy. I took it for a few years before I went back for a check up and it was gone. I still continue with both, because the maca is supposed to be good for other things and essiac tea saved my life. I have been drinking that for years. It is a great detox besides being anti tumor, both malignant and benign.
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)
- 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
- 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.
My periods started to become irregular 3 years ago they got longer and heavier and passed several clots too. Now, remind you I don't like going to doctors they put you through test after test and find out nothing and you have bills to pay so I have gone out on my own and experimented on my own and this what I'm doing now and it seems it's working----I take daily 3 Vitex, 1-B-12,1-B-6, 2 vitamin E, 2-green tea vitamins, 1-Zinc and a iron pull as needed for energy no bleeding or spotting and period ALOT better no clots no heavy bleeding and cramps are less and I have more energy I can do a lot more now more a normal life then worry about going out somewhere and have a gusher and have a embarrass moment when leaked through your clothing. I also changed my diet no red meat, diary products, alcohol, no pop when I do it's just NO caffeine like orange, sprite and root beer, no sweets (sugars) pasta and breads (just wheat), no saturated fats, I eat mostly chicken, turkey, fresh fruits and vegetables and toss salads and I drink a lot of water. I have never had no surgeries of any kind so I am scared if I ever went to a doctor that helped me that they would tell me I need a hysterectomy, that word terrorizes me. They say when Menopause comes Fibroids stop growing and they die off, I'm turning 50 next March so I'm hoping Premenopause or Menopause is around the corner for me and my fibroid problem will be gone.
