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!!!!

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Posted by Monica (Lascassas, Tn, United States) on 06/06/2010

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!

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.

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!

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!

My doctor told me I had fibroids in my uterus. I applied a castor oil pack with a heating pad on the area for an hour a day for one whole week while I napped and they were completely gone at my next check up thirty days later! Amazing! I believe castor oil is a gift from God to us.

I drank apple cider vinegar in water, had beets carrots and molasses twice a day, I exercised about 30 mins. A day five times a week and went away from my ex ( stress), I drink chamomile tea almost every night. I cut out animal products as much as possible .And drank lots of water and used beans or peas with meals.

My fibroids had caused me a miscarriage and was hurting my back . I did those changes for a summer, not only did I lose about 30 lbs bit when I went for check up, fibroids were almost non existent. The point of natural remedy is to decrease the estrogen. Stress, animal foods etc. Feed fibroids. Don't feed the fibroids and they will shrink. Since all that success I started talking to that bloke again.. needless to say I feel a small one but I'm getting rid of him for good. For me that's my source if stress. Good luck.

Ok I have been using the Black Strap Molasses unsulphured with the Apple Cider Vinegar for only three months and I am very happy with results! I can feel and see that my fibroids have shrunk. My menstrual is also lighter, and no cramping. No Tylenol for pain! WOW!! I had to share this information with my girl friends who are suffering from Uterine Fibroids. I wish that I would have read about this before my procedure that I had almost two years ago, which didn't work! Thank you Lord for natural remedies! Amen!!

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.

Ok... I have never offered a testimonial before but here goes... 4 years ago I was diagnosed with fibroids (6 over 10 cm each). I had transfusions in hospital and was given progesterone. 2 years ago I went off of it and things were relatively normal until this month when my period was back to gushing and clotting. The doc phoned in a prescription for more tablets but I haven't made it to the pharmacy yet. Why? Because, as I am sure you are familiar with, the last two days have been period hell. The furthest I have gone is bathroom to bed.

Lying in bed at 4 am today I realized I was going to miss my usual Saturday women's group breakfast. I grabbed my iPad and found this site. Apple Cider Vinegar? Really? so I went out to the kitchen swallowed two huge tablespoons, choked back some nausea and hit the shower. I felt better than I had so I got dressed and headed to town... Half an hour away... Armed with supplies to make a quick change when I got there, but didn't need to. Sat for an hour and got up last making a mad dash to the restroom to stop the gushing. But, no gushing, hardly a trickle. Could it have worked so fast? Stopped by the market for a few things. The more I walked the better I felt. Bought ACV tabs. Drove the half hour back home... Went to the bathroom, no gushing or even bleeding. No pain. Not even that tired...... I can't believe this is happening but I am glad for it. Can't wait to update you all on the results of my next ultrasound. God bless you for this.

Eliminate Coffee

no the doctor would not tell you about natural means to treat fibroids because it would keep people out of the doctors office there for interfering with his lively hood which is prescribing medicine and patients going under the knife. natural treatments take time. you have to be patient and give them time to work

Hi All,

First of all I want to thank everyone for their sincere & helpful sharings...this site is a miracle itself. My pelvic scan revealed 5.7cm fibroid, degenerated cyst, enlarged uterus (all inside womb). I searched & got this site; immediately changed my diet...no more diaries & processed foods, eat more beans instead of rice, dark leafy veges, lots of water...no more junks and fast foods...things that increase estrogen levels.

In response to Toyin; I ordered my Bragg ACV with the mother & organic unsulphured blackstrap mollasses on 16/09/14 at N18000 ( 1 litre Acv & 3 bottles BS). I just started taking it (a day) & strongly believe that at my next scan for sure I shall see the fibroids no more by the grace of God who has made it possible for others. I plan for next scan in a month's time because I also want to conceive and bear children. More success and greater grace to all of us. Stay blessed.

Stop the Microwave

for fibroids -stop all microwaved meals or foods. This works and works fast. I did this about 10 years ago and did not have to have surgery. Recently, last year, I got rid of the microwave altogether. I have not missed it at all. Heating up foods does not take that long. Please stop with the micro wave. Thanks

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.

Beets. I was bleeding for 35 days I a row before Thanksgiving, when we traditionally have (amount other normal Thanksgiving foods) pickled beets with red onion.

It's easy to prepare if you buy picked beets in a can, then thinly slice (or use a mandolin) red onions. Put sliced red onion and beets, including the juice, into a container (glass or stainless steel is what I use ) and marinate for at least one day, a few more days for extra flavor (note it is good for a long, long time afterwards ). We have a large family so I use 2-3 red onions and a large can of pickled beets (the largest they sell at Smart & Final). Now I'm a busy mom, so I do it the easy way, by buying a can of already pickled beets and adding the red onion (fresh) the way that my mom taught me. However you can make it yourself with fresh beets and red onion, but that way is messy but perhaps healthier if you use fresh beets. My mom made it that way for years but the switched to this recipe. Whichever way you like, but please note the pickled beets in a can worked for me.

Anyways, I ate beets on Thanksgiving, and a few days afterwards I ate the leftovers and all the beets (around four regular helpings I would say). Then after all the beets were gone for some reason I was compelled to drink the beet juice it had been sitting in (which I had never done before).

That weekend my ovary or uterus started throbbing painfully, man that hurt! And then I started bleeding the heaviest I ever had with sorry, TMI, globs coming out as well. Tampon and pad getting soaked and needing to be changed almost hourly. I was worried, as was my husband as we have no insurance. That lasted 3 days and then.....drumroll...I stopped bleeding all together! Total days I bled was 43 days (with maybe a random day or two dry here or there). It's now been almost two weeks with no bleeding.

So researching and reading online somewhere trying to figure out if I had fibroids or cysts, I ran across a recipe for beets and honey drink for fibroid issues. I remembered the beets I ate and the beet juice that I drank and think that is what helped me. So my insides, ovaries or uterus started hurting like before, so I just ate a bunch more of my pickled beets this afternoon, and drank some / a lot of the juice it was sitting in. I'll be making more pickled beets for Christmas (as this is a family favorite). However I will be eating more beets regularly. I will try to remember to post in the future if this helped in the long run.

Blackstrap Molasses
Posted by Payal (Ca) on 10/30/2018

Hello Friends Payal here again - Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) is the cure for Fibroids. I made my first post on 10/21 and its 10/30 this afternoon. I have gotten my life back. I will attach a video link where it is claimed that BSM somehow fixes the PH level inside of the uterus and that is how it is able to dissolve Fibroids.

I am seeing miraculous changes in my body. My belly used to be bloated like 3rd trimester - since I have 4-5 really large Fibroids measuring 20 cms

Since I started BSM 10/21, my belly has shrunk to 1st trimester - my pelvic area feels light. I don't have have the really ugly bloating, my belly is now soft. My energy levels are up and I will be resuming my sporting activities in 2 weeks - something that I have not been able to do for the last 9 months since the Fibroid increased in size from 18 - 20 cms. I can clearly see and feel that my belly has shrunk and the uterus and stomach look more normal than when we have bulky Fibroids. I plan to take a test end Dec and will post my results. I think that the BSM 1 spoon AM and 1 spoon PM in warm water (used Aunty Patty's brand) from whole foods, has thinned the endometrium lining and this has straightaway shrunk the belly. My body feels like it was 7-8 years back when I did not have Fibroids. I can walk, run and work - earlier I had no energy for anything.

what do I take

Unsulphured Black Strap molasses 1 spoon AM and 1 spoon PM in warm water

Some precautions :

1.BSM can coat your teeth since it has iron - if it bothers you please use a straw to drink it

2.BSM has high traces of copper - for me this makes my black hair go white because high copper can do it. I take Kirkland's Calcium Magnesium Zinc tablets to counter the excess copper

3.I don't use anything else

Please ladies, I am trying to get onto as many blogs and you tube videos to spread this message because nothing has worked for me last 8 years since I got Fibroids. Please pass on this message to as many people as possible because I am seeing very clear definitive improvements in my belly, uterus, flow (now scanty) and overall energy and lightness of the pelvic area

Blackstrap Molasses
Posted by Mama to Many (TN) on 09/27/2022

Dear Dene,

Typically a dose of Blackstrap Molasses is a Tablespoon. It can be taken right off the spoon or added to any amount of water or to coffee (3/4 cup of either water or coffee is a handy ratio). My kids take it right off the spoon. They know it helps so much that they take it without being told. (They take it for leg cramps.)

I hope it is helpful to you!

Hello, my name is Marta and I'm 30. I've always had terrible pain and pms in my cycle. Last menstruation was the worst I've ever had, then 10 days after it stopped I started bleeding non stop so I went to the gyn and they told me I had a 7 cm fibroiT. that was 2 weeks ago . The doctors scared me so so much. I'm not the kind of person who belives conventional doctors so I did my research plus I'm totally against removing body parts at less.

I changed my diet compleatly and started Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses. It has been a week now . I'm recovering from the anemia .

The problem is I was already very thin to start with and now I've lost 5 kilos, so i'm trying to find something that I can consume that makes me stop loosing weight. My weight is now 43 kilos. I'm not tall at all. On the other hand my stomach is not bloated it has changed dramaticly in a week . Could it also be the weight of the fibroid reducing? How much can a 7 cm fibroid weight? I don't feel the lump in my belly much. I'll have to wait till my next appoinment in a month.

I think it is working ( appart from too much weight loss 4 me) but still I'm quite scared, still very very tired and headaches and dizzines still there. Will keep posting . For some reason this issue has forced me to start changing my lifestyle and that is exacly what I wanted to do so, our bodies are incredibly clever ;) but I have to say all the bleeding dizziness and weakness is quite scary it does not help that my gyno and gp explained things in such a way and told me the only was was surgery even tho they don't even know why it came in the first place or why. I'm quite pissed of with that bit. I'm spanish but lived in the uk for a long time they had places like holland and barret and stuff like this but can't find anything like that here .. I'm strating acupunture and chinese medicine next week. I'll keep posted . I've read so so much in a week, I've run out of websites in both languages . But being informed of all options make me much calmer and allowes me to think which one is best so thanks for your website :)

Much love to all!

I had good luck with blackstrap molasses for my 11cm uterine fibroid for the first couple months that I took it--noticeable decrease in size, better energy, more regular bowel movements. Then suddenly I noticed dramatic changes--marked increase in the size of my fibroid, overall body swelling, skin changes, constipation, hemorroids. I was taking birth control pills at the time and would track these changes according to the week on the pill--week 1 I looked 2 mos pregnant; week 2 I looked 3 mos pregnant; week 3 I looked 5 mos pregnant, and then I'd get my period and all would go back to baseline. After some months of this I noticed that my body stopped going back to baseline and that these changes just seemed to move in and stay. My clothes were no longer fitting, no longer could do yoga, too hard with all that swelling. My MD said that bcp's would not make a fibroid bigger but I thought otherwise.

One month ago I discontinued the bcp's. Guess what happened? My fibroid is GONE! My body is back to normal--the way I remember my body looking and feeling before all this shenanigans started. I see my MD in 3wks and I bet she will be shocked by this outcome. If you're taking bcp's along with any other natural regimen (i.e. Black strap molasses), consider that it may be more foe than friend in your efforts to manage your fibroid. I couldn't be happier to have my old body back! Thanks for reading and good luck to all.

Better But With Side Effects

I am writing in because for the last 6 months I had been suffering from an issue with Fibroids. I had non stop bleeding sometimes extremely heavy periods to the point were my blood count level was around 7.2 . at one point I was given a blood transfusion because of the amount of blood loss. I went to see my Dr. who did a biopsy and ultrasound and had determined that I was suffering from Fibroids and this was the reason for the continuous bleeding.

My Dr. gave me two options, to have an IUD inserted with no guarantees that this would work and may fall out or a Hysterectomy. I was also taking birth control pills to try to stop the bleeding as well with no results. I read the recommendations for ACV and Baking Soda for Fibroids and I decided to try it. The first couple of days I was not feeling too well, I felt really weak and had no energy, however , I took it for about 1 week and the bleeding has stopped. I now have another appointment to see my Dr , for another exam to see if the Fibroid is still there. I want to thank Ted for the recommendation and say I feel great! thanks again

Better But With Side Effects

I was diagnosed with fibroids. I also suffer from a irregular period. When I drunk the apple cider vinegar my period came right away and I felt great. I increased my apple cider dose to twice a day with a few tablespoons in water and I began having pelvic pain. I dont know if this is a detox reaction or my body rejecting it. The pain has been for a week but its mild and I normally feel it in the mornings. If anyone else has had this experience let me know.

The way I am making my wife take it is as follows:

1 Tbsp ACV + 1/4 tsp pure baking soda (should contain only sodium bicarbonate) + half glass of water 3 times a day

Small teacup of a mixture of beet juice, aloe vera juice and BSM (each teacup containing from 1 tsp to 1 Tbsp BSM), 3 times a day (but some people had had success with BSM alone)

Dozens of women on this website have reported success using these remedies. My wife is not fully healed yet but her pain has greatly decreased, no need to take painkillers anymore.

It is perfectly safe to take this every day for as long as you wish. If you decide to include beet juice, the urine might turn red, however it is nothing to worry about, as it only indicates iron deficiency.

Her weight coming down is a good thing, isn't it? I think it is a good decision to avoid dairy and red meats.

My wife is also taking a Traditional Chinese Medicine herbal formula for dissolving blood stagnation which is seen as the cause of fibroids. The purpose of the herbs is to warm the body and promote circulation. One formula that does it is Cinnamon and Hoelen (Guizhi Fuling Wan). In China there are dozens of cases where women were healed with this formula.

For the aforementioned reason, taking hot baths, eating warm foods and doing Castor Oil packs is also recommended. To do a Castor Oil pack, soak a piece of cloth in Castor Oil and put in the oven to warm it up. Then place the cloth on the stomach over the fibroid, and cover it with plastic wrap. On the plastic place another thin cloth. On the top of that put a warming pad. Stay like this for 1 hours. The plastic wrap prevents you from getting dirty and the second thin cloth prevents you from getting a burn from the hot warming pad.

Taking milk thistle herb to supplement the liver is also recommended so that liver will be more efficient in getting rid of the "bad" estrogen that causes fibroids to grow.
