Hi, I have a question for Ted. I have just the last couple of weeks begun taking 1/2 tsp baking soda w/ 2 Tablespoons of ACV in 8 oz of water three times per day to try and reduce or rid myself of fibroids. While at home, I use a glass container to drink from. But at my office, I use an aluminum water bottle, as I was concerned with using plastic because of BPA. However, now I'm concerned with whether either the baking soda or the ACV will cause me to consume aluminum from my water bottle at work. Can you please address the issue of whether either plastic or aluminum are safe with this remedy, or whether it is always best to use glass containers. I've read many posts on your site, but I've never seen the issue of the type of container addressed with the use of ACV. Thanks very much for the help. I do find this site to be wonderful and am glad that I found you!

I just found this site today. I am so grateful. I have read thru most everyones comments on this topic and wanted to thank everyone for sharing their experience.
My situation is a little different. I have many symptoms and not certain if they are all connected or from several medical problems.
Started some years ago with Thyroid/hashimoto's disease - first illness - taking thyroid hormones since they iradiated it. Next, hair loss - got scalp injections from dematology for this 5% cortizone shots. Long treatments but it worked. Since then I have developed these fibroids and excema. Are all these things connected? Also vision has gotten bad, now wear glasses. Also, Acid Reflux. Never took the script they gave me, but I did switch my diet some what.. after reading here I need to do more!
On the topic of fibroids, I too was diagnosed a couple of years ago and told to be sent into early menopause. I said no. I dont have heavy bleeding like alot of people here are saying, but I have excruciating pain! Feels like razors or boulders going thru my falopian tubes on the left side. Every month. Plus, I get low grade fevers and feel like I have the flu every month. Typical flu symptoms- headache, fever, naseau, vomiting. Litterally bed bound monthly for two weeks with these flu symptoms. I know there is no way I can have the flu every month and went back to the doctors. They paid no attention to my complaints about the flu as of yet. I have had a stomach CT scan and the results where clear, more fibroids - they are in my tubes, in my uterus and on my ovaries. They scheduled an Upper GI and a pelvic ultrasound. I am at my wits end with the pain!! Today thanks to this site I started the 2 tbspn of Apple cider vinegar mixed with 1/4 Tspn baking soda..and will take it twice or three times a day.
I have gained 40 lbs in the past year, yes, all tummy. Thinking that maybe its all from fribroids? Or alot of it anyway. Two years ago I didnt have uterine fibroids. Im hoping it helps and will let you know as things progress. Thanks to everyone for your openness and willing to share your experiences.
Acv and Baking soda for fibroids
I read about people on your site using ACV and Baking soda for excessive bleeding associated with fibroids. I had excessive bleeding for three months and found out I had 2 large fibroids in my uterus. I tried your formula and the bleeding persisted. The second week I had forgotten to use the acv/baking soda and by the end of the day my bleeding had slowed us, alot! The next day I used the formula again and once again started bleeding, the next day and there on I stopped using the formula and the bleeding slowed up considerably. So I immediately stopped using the acv/baking soda. It may help alot of people but not in my case. But I felt it was worth a try.
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!

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

In April I was diagnosed with acid reflux. In May I went to my GYN because I missed my menses for no reason for the first time in 25 yrs. my menses started when i was 15 yrs old. i am now 40 yrs old married with 2 kids.3 and 7yrs old.I went to my gyn and he said i had a 7 cm fibroid on the left of my uterus and 5cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary. I also had a tilted uterus which i already knew about diagnosed 8 yrs ago by him because sex became uncomforbable to me sometimes.I was reflux problems and given protonix by a specialist. came across this website looking for a natural rememdy to cure my acid reflux. tried Ted's acv cure with baking soda and it for 2 week 3times a day with the 2 days off. sex was comfortable, my menses showed up, my acid reflux disappeared.especially the feel of a lump in my throat. my hay fever problems cleared up ( no post nasal drip in weeks, no constant hoarseness. I went to my gyn appt friday and was told my ovarian cyst was gone, uterus was no longer titled and my fibroid had shrunk to down to 1 or 2 cm..my gyn kept looking at my chart RE-reading his notes from my last appt a month ago.. UNBELIEVABLE!!! I FEEL SOOO MUCH BETTER OVERALL..ALSO I LOST 6LBS (with no effort at all) now that was a nice surprise..Thank GOD for this website and ACV..
Fibroids and Cysts
Due to a 6 cm intramural fibroid (diagnosed 18 months ago at 3,8 cm), I had been suffering terribly from heavy bleeding, debilitating cramps and breakthrough bleeding for over 15 months. On the 2nd day of my cycle, I would have to use 3 super plus tampons plus pads every hour for a 10 - 20 hour period of time. This was accompanied by such terrible pain that I couldn't walk without bending over. I would take 400 mg ibuprofen every 4 hours over a 24 hour time span, but still suffer tremendous pain. My periods would last between 7 and 10 days, though the bleeding was typically light after the 5th or 6th day. More often than not, I would then have bleeding or spotting between periods. As my cycles are relatively short (23 - 26 days), the breakthrough bleeding was obviously quite distressing to deal with.
Two and half months ago, I started drinking ACV twice a day with baking soda and water (1 tbsp ACV, 1/4 tsp BS, 300 ml water). Since then, I have not had any breakthrough bleeding. My periods, except for this last one, were so light that I didn't even use tampons. I rarely soak a pad within 3 - 4 hours and can sleep for 8 hours at a time each night! My periods now last approximately 5 days, with very little bleeding after that time. I still control the pain with ibuprofen, but it is no longer debilitating. I have been able to increase the dosage interval to every 6 hours within one 24 hour period, thereby reducing my ibuprofen intake to 1600 vs 2400 mg per cycle. I was also diagnosed with an ovarian cyst (3.5 cm) that might likely be a chocolate cyst. I had occasional sharp pains coming from my ovaries before starting the ACV, but haven't had any such pains in the last 7 weeks. This, however, could be due to the daily dosage of chasteberry (Vitex agnus-castus -hard capsule 4 mg dried extract) which I have been taking for the last 5 weeks. I don't yet know whether the fibroid and/or the cyst have reduced in size, but I am feeling tremendously better -much healthier, less tired and run down. Also, I used to feel very depressed prior to my periods, but rarely feel this sadness anymore. I rode a rollercoaster of emotions, but this has stablised considerably. I feel happy and balanced most of the time, even the day or two before my period begins. I'll report back after my next ultrasound.

Thanks for the encouraging comments on this platform. Please anyone know a cure for calcified fibroids? I have used Blackstrap Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar but the fibroids size ( intramural between 5cm and 2cm) hasn't changed. I have recorded weight loss and my tummy has gone down a bit.
I have been using the Apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons and black strap molasses 2 tablespoons twice per day for more than six months for my fibroids. I have several. People say that you should go and get it check to see if it has shrunk. I have not because I know it has not. I feel it every day and it is still the same size. As a matter of fact, I think it has gotten bigger. It rest on my bladder, making having access to a restroom a must always!
Does anyone have suggestions for me? I can't take this any more. I really do not want to have surgery.

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!
Hi, I suffer from fibroids and since I discovered this site about two months ago, I started religiously taking a tsp of Acv twice a day to help shrink the fibroid, and reduce the bleeding. Prior to starting, period will last for about two weeks with on an off clotting after the first week, when you think it's almost over.
The first month after the ACV regime, periods lasted about 10 days and the cloting/gushing was reduced. So I continued to taking every day.
The second month, period was more painful that I ever experienced on the second day, I though I had appendicitis. First round lasted for 7 days and I thought this thing is working but then, just when I thought bleeding was coming to an end, I will go to the washroom to pee and gess what? A flood. I thank God I was at home those days. For the next week, I will still be clotting so that at some point I thought periods was staring all over again...
I was so scared I stopped the ACV and the BSM and called my Gyn. She gave me something (tranexamic acid) to stop the bleeding and I will be going for U/S with next period. She is also suggesting Fibristal, but I am not very exited about it. Has anyone experienced it? Is it effective? Surgery is not an option.
I really don't know what do to shrink the fibroid anymore...I hope there was a natural solution for me, but my experience with ACV is that since it's a blood thinner, it's probably the reason I experienced prolonged bleeding. I would like to know if it is something to be taken everyday or only during the period? I am OK with the taste of BSM ut it is making me feel bloated, but I taking in on an off, just because I am iron deficient.
Thank you for reading my post.
please I am pleased with all the positive results gotten from people in eliminating fibroid. a friend of mine has multiple fibroid three inside the womb and five outside the womb and she is a young lady not married yet. It gives her concern on how to get rid of them because she is afraid of surgery. She has hernia surgery 2012 and doesn't want enter theartre again.
She saw from the internet to use the mixture of blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar and she did for one month, but no difference that will encourage her to continue so she stops. She took I teaspoon of unsulphured blackstrap molasses and 2 tablespoon of applecider vinegar in half glass of water.
Please and please she wants to know the truth, if it is confidential, please send to her personal mail to the above address.
If not possible tell her and if it is possible still let her know the dosage and how to take it for shrinking of the fibroid and how long it will take her. Also how to noticed that is working.
What is the next thing to do?
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!

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.
For the last 2-3 months, my wife has been taking the following for fibroids:
1) 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar + 1/4 baking soda 2-3 times a day
2) 1 small teacup beet juice + 1 tsp. blackstrap molasses + aloe vera juice 2-3 times a day
However, she often experiences heartburn and diarrhea that she had not experienced before, therefore naturally the culprits have to be these remedies. They are working well on the fibroid but cause heartburn as a side effect. What do you think can be the cause? Excessive sugar from frequent consumption of molasses? Something about the vinegar? I do not trust chemical remedies so I am suspicious of the baking soda.
Do you have any ideas how to make these remedies more readily digestible?
One tip that I have discovered to make the beet mixture more palatable (my wife dislikes the earthy taste of beets) is to mix it with coriander powder which is a light spice that balances the more earthly taste of the beets.
