My fibroids were 13 cm and 11 cm. 11 cm shrunk and am still working on the other 13 cm that is now 9cm. Here is what I did: Drinking plenty of water early, avoiding milk, drinking of aloe vera gel, drinking of ginger mixed with burnt castor beans, alligator pepper.

I've always had heavy menstrual cycles. After I had a tubal ligation after the birth of my 2nd child they were much heavier. Super Plus tampon and maxi pad soaked every 1 to 2 hours for 3 days. Over the last year it's gotten really really bad. I felt better after reading other posts and seeing I was not alone. I don't leave the house for 4 to 5 days during my cycle and soak through in 5 to 15 minutes with clots ranging from golf ball to grapefruit size. The last couple of months I've been feeling pressure above my pelvic bone and the area is as hard as a rock. This cycle I had almost no flow. 3 pads only in 3 days but the pressure was intense. I felt like I was going to explode. I don't have insurance and was going to break down and go into debt on Monday to go to the clinic because I was really getting scared. Took a dose of ACV last night after reading all of the posts on the fibroid page. Took another this morning along with a couple of TB of black strap molasses. 3 hours later and I'm now flowing heavily with clots bigger than I've ever seen in my life. While it may not sound like a success because now I'm bleeding most of the pressure is gone and my the hardness has decreased dramatically. I'll keep doing the ACV daily and report back next month on wether my flow lessens or not. Thanks for sharing such sensitive personal info. I've been to so many doctors who have just told me not to worry every woman is different. I thought for sure I was going to have to have surgery. Now I'm hopeful.

Lugol's Iodine

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.


Blackstrap Molasses

My husband told me about Blackstrap Molasses about 18 months. I took a tablespoon of the stuff on a few occasions, but was so challenged by the stuff that I didn't persist with it. In hindsight, I wish I had, because my story would be very different today. 18 months on, with 2 blood clots to my leg because of one of the fibroids pressing against the main artery to my leg, a bald patch in the middle of my head, due to loosing so much blood and poor blood circulation to the extremities of my body, and bladder problems due to another fibroid pressing against my bladder, I visited about 30 websites of the benefits/ warnings of blackstrap molasses.

This website was particularly helpful, as a reader went into great detail about caution with the product. That said, the benefits outweighed the risks, so I started on Organic Blackstrap Molasses about 1 month ago. To take into consideration the warnings from this website, I started on 2 tablespoon of Molasses a day in hot water, but after a week, switched to 2 teaspoon per day in hot water; and have settled for 1 tablespoon per day in hot water. This is in contract with those on this website who take 3 tablespoon full a day.

The first improvement was fnding that I wasn't going to the bathroom as often as I have become accustomed to over the last 3 years of suffering with multiple fibroids (4 to be precise and with my uterus the size of a 4-5 month pregnancy). This single change motivated me to be deligent with taking the Molasses. I have just completed a period cycle. This time, instead of 1.5 extremely heavy days of bleeding in 5, I bled heavily for 1/2 day. Instead of changing every 30 mins on heavy days of bleeding. I changed every 2.5 hours. I did have quite a few clots which I have never experienced before. I was wondering could the fibroids be disintegrating. This is speculative, as I am not medically trained. My stomach didn't expand to twice its size during this monthly cycle, but remained the same throughout.

However, my monthly cycle started 4 days early. I don't actually mind, because of the massive improvement experienced. I have in the past lost 1 pint of blood in one period. This month, it was nearly back to where it was 5 years ago. I am really excited about the results and want to share this with every woman out there suffering from fibroids. This has to work for me as an operation isn't an option, because I want children.

25 months after my first MRI, my third scan has shown very little growth (1/2 cm) in my submucous fibroid. I have changed my diet considerably and take many vitamin, mineral and homeopathic/plant based supplements to strengthen my body and diminish the debilitating symptoms.

In addition to drinking ACV (2 tbsp w/baking soda water), unsulphured blackstrap molasses (heaping tbsp mixed with hot water), taking vitex agnus castus (chasteberry) capsules (4mg/day), iron, zinc (12 hours after iron intake), folic acid, magnesium, vitamin B complex, vitamin C (with the iron), omega 3 fish oil capsules and shepherd's purse tincture (to stop spotting and reduce bleeding during periods), I have eliminated all meat and restricted consumption of coffee, chocolate, dairy and alcohol to exceptional occasions.

My cycles are still 23 - 26 days, but if I stray from the diet, my symptoms return/worsen, sometimes within hours: e. G. , coffee and chocolate can cause breakthrough bleeding and worsen cramping during periods; skipping several days of ACV causes irregular cycles; stopping blackstrap molasses contributes to my anaemia; not eating enough fruits and raw vegetables cause periods to be more painful and bleeding to be profuse (carrots, beets, sweet potatoes are especially helpful at reducing bleeding); omitting zinc supplements 4 - 6 days before the start of menstruation causes painful cramps.

It is not always a joy to omit so many foods and learn to eat healthier, but since changing my diet to include more fish, tofu, lentils, chickpeas, kidney beans, cruciferous vegetables, fruits, nuts, sprouts, rice milk and wheatgrass, my fibroid has stabilised and my symptoms are nothing like they were when I was first diagnosed almost 4 years ago. At that time, the fibroid was almost 3 cm smaller, yet the pain and bleeding were debilitating.

Exercise is also very important. I try to run 3 - 4 times a week (5 - 8 km) and ski, swim, cycle weather permitting.

It is possible to live with fibroids, but it requires discipline and determination. I find it difficult to always stick to my diet, including my cocktail of vitamins, minerals and homeopathic supplements, but the rewards are worth it.

Dietary Changes

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 live in South Africa and have a friend who had been suffering with seven painful uterine fibroids for four months. Unfortunately, she couldn't afford health insurance, and in the Township where she lives, the hospital facilities are not exactly confidence inspiring. As result, she was afraid to go there for a much needed operation.

In desperation, she came to stay with me. She was at her wits end and almost suicidal from the never ending pain. I took her to my local doctor. After examining her he announced he could do nothing further, except prescribe pain killers and give her a letter of introduction to a much better free hospital. That hospital scheduled an appoint for a consultation some three months later. She was sleeping most of the day, unable to eat without vomiting afterwards. Could not bend over, nor have a proper bowel movement.

Even after the hospital consultation, she'd probably have to wait six months to year to actually have the op, as fibroids are not regarded as priority cases. This made her even more depressed and tearful. I started juicing for her; fresh fruit and veggie juices in place of meals. She got somewhat better and the pain was less, but she was still in very bad shape and zonked out from the pain killers and stress. Finally I gave her apple cider vinegar. One tablespoon in a little water, three times a day. Within two days she was totally free of pain. She had good bowel movements and regained ALL of her previous strength, energy and vitality within a week.

That was two months back. Since then she has telephoned me to say she feels terrific and thinks the fibroids are gone. She will not be going for that operation now! ACV IS A MIRACLE. (I understand it also works just as well for period pains.)

hi friends payal here - I am reporting changes with BSM - I have written 2-3 posts here so pls read ALL of them before y ask questions

here is more info to help you and its a lot of info so read and make notes - pls read my other BSM notes as well - if you find this useful pls post this to social media to help other women since I am not on any and don't have time for that. Spread the word so that we can get more feedback.




Because this indicates that the remedy has been able to reduce estrogen and increase progesterone - which is the only way to reduce the blood flow and shrink the tumour

EASY STEPS to reduce Fibroids :

1.You must stop all diary, meat - fish and eggs is ok I think

2.I cannot live without milk yoghurt ghee - so I continued with youghurt, ghee but stopped milk - MILK is the biggest culprit in fibroids - was on Organic milk for 10 years and it is one of the main causes of fibroids. I use powdered milk from INDIA - I cannot recommend any milk powder in USA because all of them come from the same source or are hydrolysed - the INDIAN MILK POWDER NAME IS AMULYA from AMUL.

3.Eat Simple meals - don't go hungry but eat simple means eg I eat rice, dal, vegetables, oats. Pls add to this sensibly

WHY YOU NEED TO EAT SIMPLE - becoz otherwise you will not know what changes the BSM is making to your body and if it is shrinking your fibroid.

If you eat lots of healthy greens, lentils, sprouts, nuts, fresh salads, fruits, veggies ALL GOOD - continue

Restrict or use sugar substitutes - I use jaggery instead of white sugar that's all

Stay away from sugary drinks, heavy fried food.


1.I have Fibroids last 8 years very very large ones 6-7 of them

2.I had very very heavy periods - flooding but it lasted 1.5-2 days but it was still BAD

My first first step is to find something that reduces the heavy flow - that is the step in the correct direction

I tried everything from juicing, greens, wheatgrass, to turmeric beets carrots ginger smoothies, castor oil packs - NOTHING SHRUNK THE FIBROID. Except carrot juice NOTHIGN REDUCED THE BLOOD FLOW - THIS SHOWS THAT THE ROOT CAUSE HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED.


1.I used Aunt Patty's unsulphured molasses 4weeks back - I saw results within 24-48 hours

2.It reduced the blood flow completely

to your questions - I take it on and before and during my periods - YES YES YES YES YES

Because that's how you test if BSM is working for you

When your periods start, take 1 spoon BSM with warm water.


1.Pls take Calcium Magnesium Zinc tablets 2 tablets with the BSM - why? because BSM contains around less 1 mgcopper & u need ZINC 2 tablets = 20 mg to maintain zinc : copper ratio in the body which is approx 15 : 1 (15 zinc and 1 copper)

I take Kirkland tablets from Costco

why should we take calcium magnesium


But all these are minerals and ratio has to be correct, when something is more something else is impacted so to be safe take 1 tablet of the above. You could take just zinc but I am NOT sure.

1A. High iron in BSM can lead to constipation - Solution : Take any laxative along with it or eat 4 fruits and drink lot of liquids to prevent constipation OR take Tripahala 2-3 tablets

Triphala is an indian ayurvedic remedy to treat constipation

1B. THE BSM is powerful, it removes excess ESTROGEN and it also REMOVES copper TOXICITY from the blood - SO YOU MUST SUPPORT THE LIVER

Pls take beetroot juice to help liver remove excess estrogen and copper from the blood and dispel it from the body

Helping the liver cleanse the blood of estrogen and copper is v important because BSM will detox the body and uterus and it will put the excess estrogen and copper and the liver must efficiently eliminate both.

VIT C, carrots may do this but VIT C will reduce copper - I will try and then report this

For now PLS USE beet juice when you consume BSM

2.I took only 1 spoon BSM with warm water - I take it a couple of days a week and stop and then go to next week - WHY??

BSM can make your hair go gray - something to do with Copper levels hence I take it 1-3 days and then stop.

So short steps are :

BSM 1 spoon in warm water 3 days a week

with Cal Mag Zinc tablet 2 tablets

with laxative or Triphala (high iron in BSM may create constipation)

with beet juice (to help liver escort excess estrogen and copper released by BSM out of the body)

I think with this in few days belly size will show some shrinkage and you will physically feel the relief when excess estrogen and copper is out of the body. I DID.

Periods MUST become light very very light

IF NOT, PLS INCREASE BSM to 1-2 spoons once or twice a day

If your hair is not turning grey - you are lucky so you can continue this daily till it shrinks

If you don't get constipation - you are lucky so you can continue this daily till it shrinks

Pls observe copper levels and zinc levels and DON'T ignore

Uncontrolled or improper copper levels can and will lead to CANCER - but BSM if you just understand copper and zinc level balance - is a SURE CURE FOR FIBROIDS

Also ladies keeping Fibroid tumours in our bodies with heavy bleeding is a HIGH risk for future cancer - so BSM seems a very very sure fire method to shrink it. If everyone uses and provides feedback we can do it.

My feedback is that my periods are now a breeze - but I have to take BSM during the period.

My tummy was huge and bloated - it has shrunk to the extent that I am still a bit bloated but I can walk, run play exercise - which I could not earlier.

I feel free, as though released from fibroids PRISON - the shrinking will happen faster if I take it daily - I will report back in 3-4 weeks.

Please send feedback to this FORUM

I will try with ACV and report

Dear Scopa,

Well, that is discouraging - you have persevered and have not seen results.

I would try castor oil packs. They help so many different types of tumors and cysts. Do not use them during your period though as they can increase the flow.

Also, because animal products contain hormones, (even organic animal products) reducing animal products in your diet may help.

The herb vitex (also known as chaste tree berry) may help as well.

I hope you find relief soon!

Hi Scopa...The Iodine Protocol is probably best for fibroid or cyst problems. There are many independent research articles on the successful reduction and eradication of both uterine fibroids and breast cysts using lugol's iodine or Iodoral. There are even several people on this website who have also cured their own fibroids problems using the Iodine Protocol.

The Iodine Protocol (Long version)

Iodine Protocol (short version)

Research: Iodine, Ovaries and Fibroids

My last piece of advice is to take the Iodine Protocol exactly as advised -- which includes taking all the companion nutrients. If you don't do this then it probably will not work very well.

Another option for uterine fibroids is turmeric. Turmeric is used for any illnesses related to blood and is especially good for women's reproductive problems. This is what they say of it in Chinese medicine. To increase absorption and improve the taste, you can boil 1 teaspoon turmeric in milk.

Herb that can be used to stop excessive bleeding is called Shepherd's Purse.

Going vegetarian might also be helpful as it would cut on the hormones. High fiber diet (lots of whole grains, vegetables, fruits and legumes) is also important because it binds sweeps harmful substances and hormones out of the body.

Try going off ACV and taking the BSM only and see how you feel. My wife is always taking 1 teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon of BSM in a cup of hot tea and she has never mentioned being bloated.

For iron deficiency, do not underestimate the power of simple raw greens, such as arugula, which are powerhouses of iron.

The recipe for turmeric milk if you are interested:

Combine 1 cup milk and 1 cup water in a pot. Add 1 teaspoon turmeric, 1 teaspoon ginger, pinch-1 teaspoon cinnamon, pinch-1 teaspoon black pepper (all powdered) and 5 cardamom pods if available. Boil until the water evaporates. Now the milk is saturated with turmeric.

Dear Kt in Australia,

1. I am not sure exactly what mechanism the charcoal is using to shrink fibroids. I just know there are reports of it doing so. Charcoal does draw out toxins, so that may be it.

2. I know of no limit to how often charcoal poultices are used. I know for serious ailments they are used daily for a good while. I wouldn't use them 24/7 though. Several hours in the evening or overnight. And just monitor how you feel. Each person is different.

3. I have not read about using clay for fibroids, but I don't see a reason that it couldn't be done. I do know that sometimes clay and charcoal are used in the same poultice with good results.

4. Yes, I use ground flax in my poultices. It seems coarser than flour; more like cornmeal.

5. I have used charcoal internally and externally at the same time. You just want to make sure you take it with plenty of water to avoid constipation. You also should not take it within 2 hours of any medications.

There was a recent post here about using serrapeptase for fibroids. You might want to look in to that as well.

I hope this works well for you!

I also had success fixing excessive monthly bleeding with the vinegar tea remedy and an alkalizing diet. At the same time, the little urine leakage that had crept up when I coughed or laughed went away. It lead me to believe both issues were caused by pressure from fibroids. Anyway, it is one of those nasties that life can throw at women. I learned the cure right here and I'm thankful this forum was available when I suffered through it.

Linoleic Acid

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.

My fibroids are GONE! This is what I did. I bathed in filtered water which I sometimes added frankensence essence or chamomile. Go Berkey. (I avoided plastic bottles, telflon), gave up all dairy, I drank dandylion tea for awhile. I did the forum (emotional work), I drank chlorophyll, I did Vitex capsules and blackstrap mollasses for a month. Oh yeah. And I master cleanse for 18 days. I also visualized them shrinking and knew they were shrinking. I went to acupuncture 3 times. Ten months ago I had 3 tumors 50mm to 80 mm. My last sonogram was completely normal!!!

I have fibriods size of peas and were causing spotting after period, which caused much anxiety. Started ACV and Baking Soda 1 8oz cup with 1 tbsp in the morning, apple cider 2 tbsp in water at lunch only, then at nights same as morning and the spotting stopped. Not sure if they disintegrate but had noticed some debris when I pee in the toilet. Let's see my appointment is February 28. Hoping to hear that the debris is really the fibroid gone. Remember that this may work instantly for some persons, while it may take longer.

Ladies we need to change our eating habits eat more veggies, drink plenty water and exercise. I'm trying, you can too. All the best to us.

Dear Fibroid Sisters:
Please email me soon, as I am in desperate times with my doctor. She is wanting me to do surgery since my fibroid has grown fm 9cm to 13 cm in the past couple years. Please eamil if your fibroid is at 9cm or bigger and you had good results w/proof that you did go to get an mri done and your fibroid has shrunk after taking ACV with any other stuffs. Or if you done something else naturally to shrink your fibroids.

What size was your fibroid before it shrunk? What size it is now? how long did it take to shrink to the size it is? What are you eating? Is it all organic foods?

HOW ABOUT PLASTICS? Anyone can email me on this subject as well. I know I keep hearing and seeing to not use plastic. That would be crazy.... Everything is in plastic. Meats wrapped in plastic. Fruits and produce wrapped in plastic. I have plastic food containers I used all my life.... So I have to go and get all GLASSWARE to store all foods now? I even email Zephyrhills water and they said the plastic bottle they use are safe to drink from. Its just so much info to take in and so much plastic around us. Creams. Lotions are in plastic. The dish holder is plastic where I put my dishes after washing them. The shampoo bottles are plastic.... So even the organic products are in plastic containers.... So I don't know what it means to NOT USE PLASTIC?

I know not to microwave my foods in plastic for sure. I try to drink out of glass. Email me if you have answers on PLASTIC usage. But mainly.... Please email me on uterine fibroids. Let me know how you shrunk yours. I so appreciate your time and I can't express how upset/depressed it has caused me on this subject. Please help.
Thank you so much, Maylin

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 wrote several times and have was diagnosed with anemia and fibroids last September. I have tried everything from black strap molasses, to Apple cider vinegar and those remedies have helped. I got an ultrasound in June and my fibroid is still there, it hasn't gotten any bigger though! My anemia is gone, it has been for about 6 months! My Naturopath was amazed that I have kept my iron up for so long. Ok, so this is what I have been doing everyday now for the last 3 months and it has made a huge dfference: I drink Odowalla Superfood green juice every morning. I had read spirulina is good for fibroids and was taking supplements, I believe that works also if you don't like Odawalla. I take Garden of Life Perfect Food Super Green Vitamins, Irwin naturals living green liquid gel womens multivitamin, a B-100, Evening Primrose, and DIM. I read that DIM helps balance Estrogen and since I have been taken it I have noticed a big difference in my cycles being lighter. I was taking vitex (chasteberry). I take iron picolate if my cycles are heavy but they haven't been.

This routine has been so wonderful, my cycles have been light 3 days, and they have been 21-28 says apart. They were 15-17 days and horrible. My anemia was so bad my iron was 29, now it is 42! I got all the supplements at super supplements. The iron picolate I got from my naturopath.

So if you have anemia and fibroids give this a try, also cream of wheat blackstrap molasses and raisins helped when my iron was really low.
I also have gotten off the pill (everything I read says estogen makes fibroids grow) and watch my caffeine and alchohol intake. Good luck ladies! Your body can heal itself, my Dr. suggested a hysterectomy last year, I'm only 40 years old! Thank goodness I didn't listen. I feel great!

Hi, everyone

This is what I did, and it really SAVED MY LIFE, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD

I checked out natural anti-inflammatories, and this is what I now do.

If you are taking medications (ANY MEDICATIONS, INCLUDING BIRTH CONTROL PILLS), please discuss with your doctor any possible interactions with Grape Seed Extract.
Don't take Motrin or Advil, or any other of those types of drugs while taking Grape Seed Extract.

Here is the regimen to do on every day of your period:
These can all be obtained at Whole Foods or the Co-Op or Rainbow Acres or any other natural foods store.

These are ALL natural anti-inflammatories:

1) Grapeseed Extract (a potent natural anti-inflammatory) : Tablets: 90mg grapeseed extract - I took 2 x 90mg tablets three times a day, with meals, which works out to 540mg / day
(the recommended dosage is half that, but this is what worked. If you have concerns about doubling the recommended dosage of grapeseed extract, speak to your doctor or do your own indepth research)
Please make sure to feel okay with the dosage you will take of Grape Seed Extract.'I experienced no side effects and this is what worked miracles for me. But if you are on any other medication, speak to your doctor before taking Grape Seed Extract, because if you are on Coumadin, or other blood thinners it could increase bleeding if you have surgery, etc.
The liver also uses certain enzymes to break down certain drugs and if you take Grape Seed Extract and another medication that use the same liver enzymes to break down, it can result in a higher level of the medication in your blood.

2) Lakewood Organic Pomegranate Juice (one x 1QT bottle every two days, drink throughout the day)
This is mixed so it's not bitter.
I also bought pure pomegranate juice and mixed that with the Lakewood brand, so as to get more pomegranate concentration

3) Organic Ginger Aid Ginger Tea (Traditional Medicinals Herbal Dietary Supplement Brand, Caffeine Free) - 3 or more cups throughout the day.
Don't reuse same teabag, keep ginger concentration high.

4) Turmeric Powder (pure powder) - 1 tablespoon sprinkled over a mouthful (it doesn't taste that great at that concentration, so I just put it over one bite of my meal and ate it quickly) DO THIS AT LUNCH TIME, JUST 1X A DAY

5) one tablespoon olive oil sprinkled over the same part of your meal as the turmeric. Basically you want to get a concentrated bite with turmeric and olive oil. DO THIS AT LUNCH TIME, JUST 1 X A DAY

6) During your period, avoid all refined carbohydrates and sugars, which cause the body's inflammatory response to come into play. Just for those days, stick to as pure a diet as possible

7) Don't take any of the above ingredients (1 to 5) at any other time of the month, to keep their effect on your body optimal when you use them once a month.

8) Here is a link to the iron content in foods, so you can incorporate them naturally into your diet so your body can produce the red blood cells and hemoglobin necessary to regain your natural oxygenation levels and your body regain balance.
Iron is necessary for the body to manufacture hemogolobin. Hemogolobin is what the oxygen molecules attach themselves to, and it is responsible for transporting this oxygen throughout the body and releasing it into the cells.


And that's it!!


That's why doctors prescribe NSAIDS (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) in such high dosages. But they have incredibly dangerous side effects and are themselves very dangerous.

I cannot tell you what this has done to my life. It is truly a miracle, and I beg you to try this regimen.
It has saved my life, because I truly was in great, great danger and distress. Nobody cared, and also the dangers of 800mg of Motrin 3 x a day are so high, that that in itself was a health risk.
Have you ever read the side effects? They include stroke and death. There is a lawsuit currently about Motrin causing blindness in a young girl.



I just could not believe it. It was an absolute miracle after four years of actually believing I was going to die.
No one can understand how horrible it is to gasp for breath constantly throughout the day, to have a heart rate of 112 as normal, to have heart palpitations and your body screaming out that something had to help it.
to not be able to walk from your bed to your closet without gasping and hanging on the light fixture and having a racing heart and heart palpitations.
Being so tired that ANYTHING was impossible to do, let alone be active and full of energy.
Oxygen starvation is bad and dangerous for the body and NO DOCTORS GIVE A DAMN!!

WHY DID NO DOCTOR TELL ME ABOUT THE ABOVE REGIMEN? What on earth are they doing for their $150,000 education?

Apple Cider Vinegar, Blackstrap Molasses
Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee) on 12/08/2015

Dear Ozy,

I am sorry that the vinegar and blackstrap didn't work for you!

I have read about chickweed tea shrinking fibroids. You would want to drink a couple of cups of strong chickweed tea daily for a couple of months (unless it didn't agree with you for some reason.) If you want to try it, you would want to buy it by the pound from Mountain Rose Herbs or someplace like that.

To make the tea (really, a strong infusion.) 3 Tablespoons of chickweed in a mason jar. Add 2 cups boiling water. Cover. Let sit 4 hours. Strain. Drink two cups a day. It isn't really delicious. It tastes like spinach water, I will be honest. When I use chickweed I also use a generous amount of peppermint.

Please do read through Earth Clinic's fibroid remedies again as some other remedy may resonate with you.

Let us know how it goes.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Blackstrap Molasses
Posted by Marcin (Toronto, Canada) on 05/06/2015

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.

Apple Cider Vinegar

I came across this site yesterday, and I was looking for a natural way to deal with my fibroids, especially since I believe I have at least two. Anyways, I did spot off and on for at least four days. The last day was the worst due to it being slightly heavier than the previous three.

In the past, I had an ovarian cyst that burst, and the doctor cleaned me out when he also took out my appendix, so I probably have scar tissue in that part of my body. The pain I was having was similar to the past, and since I'm in my 30s, it made logical sense for me to assume that it was fibroids. Well, this is definitely the case. Below are my results within 24 hours.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar worked for me, especially with having it diluted with water. I have not had any spotting thus far.

2. Grape Juice has also helped in cleansing my body. This did make my fibromyalgia kick in, so I cannot intake a lot because of it.

3. I have increased energy, and I feel so much better.

4. Ordered the Apple Cider Vinegar pills that will be taken with water (as a back up). Usually 500 mg is equivalent to 2 Tbsp. a day.

Thank you again for your recommendations. You prevented me from having another surgery and decreasing my chances of getting cancer when older. Blessings.
