Feedback concerning the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), Blackstrap molasses (BSM). To whomever discovered this for Fibroids, heavy bleeding. I would hug for an hour.

I was frightened as after having the Oblation, left me leaking a gold colored discharge for 6 mos. The Plasma from my Blood leaving my body. I knew I was in trouble for my life. Desperate for answers I found and read every comment, and feed back concerning ACV, BSM.

What did I have to lose, I had the ACV, BSM in the cupbord. Within three days the large clots were almost completely gone, after 5 days I only had a trickel of blood. Today the blood has almost completely stopped. No cramps, and I am not carrying extra cloths with me. AMAZED that's what I am.

For Women that have been suffering with this condition:

Utrophin..1-3x daily( Standard Process co.)
Vessel Forte.. 2-2x daily(Design for health Co.)
Sesame Seed.. 1-3x daily(Standard Process Co.)
Progon B.. 4-2x daily Crushed put under tounge(Bezwecken)

These essential supplements will build the blood cells so you stand a fighting chance.

I will post again within 5 wks for Update on the clotting. Leann

I had one, too, but after 3 months was back to heavy bleeding. So bad I was up during the night to change the bedding. I would bleed 28 days out of 30, very heavy. Finally had a hysterectomy, which fixed that but started other issues. No feeling at all below navel, kind of messes with intimacy and you don't know if you pee'd yourself because you can't feel anything until you're cold and wet. I taped my interview w/ the dr prior to surgery so I'd be able to go over it at home, this was not mentioned. After 8 years I have no/low libido, hot flashes like he** itself, mental issues (memory loss), insomnia (see my post about nothing works). Good luck to you. I'd try everything I could here before having a hysterectomy.

hi I m suffering from fibroid I m 30 and unmarried. I asked from those who have used Blackstrap Molasses and acv. Pls tell me Apple Cider Vinegar would be better for me??bcoz I m unmarried and having large blood flow. I m very weak. My weight is 42 now bcoz of fibroid. It was less before fibroid. So can I use Apple Cider Vinegar with bsm. I would not be dangerous for me??or for uterus??? how much quantity I should use. Pls tell me I m v depressed. I m using homeo medicines to stop bleeding should I continue it with Blackstrap Molasses and acv??thanks

Replied by Anon

Hi, Blackstrap molasses( unsulphered) does stop heavy bleeding take at least 3 tablespoonfuls with water and the flo usually stops very soon, there are lots of testimonies here that say long term use of Bsm shrank fibroids. Really these are general guidelines as we all react differently. There are other indications that fibroids are a symtom of iodine deficiency and vitamin a. You should check the vit a levels with a hair test first.

Hello Sania from Lahore, Pakistan- For heavy bleeding and fibroids try the following:

1. Apply 5-6 drops good, therapeutic grade quality geranium essential oil on the lower stomach and back during your period. This will help reduce the bleeding. You can do this 4-5 times daily during the period.

2. Raspberry leaf tea 2 cups everyday for 2-3 months, and then 1 cup per day will also lessen bleeding and allow fibroid to disintegrate naturally.

3. Please google 'pranic healing'. There are many pranic healers in Pakistan who can give healing which will help in this regard.

4. Good quality cod liver oil which is super concentrated in Vitamin A is known to reduct bleeding and help resolve fibroid issues.

5. Have your iron count checked through blood test. With heavy bleeding you could be anemic, and the molasses is very helpful for this.

Good luck, Tina

Hello I'm sania, unmarried, 32 years old, having fibroid in uterus which caused heavy bleeding, anemia, calcium deficiencies. 1st time, I'm taking meridian unsulfured pure cane molasses from 12 days from starting of periods. On 10 and 11 and 14 days, I have heavy bleeding and clotting 1 time a day. I'm confused about what's going on? Why is this bleeding? The past 9 days were a bit normal, but now it's a terrible problem.

I live in Pakistan, Lahore. I can't find unsulfured blackstrap molasses in Pakistan. My relative send me a bottle of meridian unsulfured pure cane molasses instead of Blackstrap Molasses from UK. Is this problem due to pure cane molasses? I haven't tried Apple Cider Vinegar yet. Should I use it? And what are fibroid shrinkage signs, please tell me. I'm taking homeo pills to regulate cycle, but once in a year I have this problem of irregular cycle. Please tell me how to use Blackstrap Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar. I can find organic doctors Apple Cider Vinegar In Lahore, but no international brand is available in Pakistan. Should I use local brand? If any one knows if Blackstrap Molasses and Apple Cider Vinegar are available in Pakistan then tell me please....." please give recommendations, I'm in trouble.

aoa, you told me that blackstrap molasses is available in agha, s super market but I don't find it. I called on this shop, they said it is not available. So pls tell me are you sure it is available in Karachi?

You must know sugarcane juice? You can find "ganaye ka juice" or ROO as it is called in Pakistan.

You will have to take say two three liters and boil it to decrease its volume and make it thick.

The process that sugar mills follow is:

1) boil

2) Centrifuge that juice and make it stand still to separate sugar crystals.

Its a light molasses.

The above step is repeated two times more. In the end you get a thick black molasses.

I will try to separate sugar crystals at home but if I cannot, it is okay. I will boil it again and again till I make it thick and almost black.

As much water will have evaporated. Concentrated cocktail of nutrients will be in my possession :)

If I were you, I would use the exact same recipe that everybody else is using that works for them. I will try the unsulphured blackstrap molasses. If you can't find unsulfured I would get regular blackstrap molasses.

Hello again. I hope everyone is well or at least headed in that direction. I'm following up from my last post. So, it's been over a month since being on the ACV and Blackstrap Molasses remedy and I was anticipating what my menstrual cycle would be like (that's a first). Typically, it would arrive on the 20th day. Well, it came on the 26th day with no premenstrual symptoms. I kid you not, there was no fatigue, bloating, moodiness, abdominal pressure, NADA! The first day consisted of spotting and no pain. The second and third day were slightly heavy w/ smaller clots and little gushing but not the heavy I was used to. The cramps were very painful though, to the point of having to take ibuprofen. Normally, I won't take a pill for pain unless I can't function w/ the pain. On the fourth day, the flow decreased and the pain lessened dramatically. I am currently on the fifth day and no pain, very light flow. I have to say, I never felt drained for the duration of this period. My stomach/abdomen isn't as tight and full feeling. It can only get better from here on out.

Its only been over a month and I feel like this site has made a major difference in my health and life. I plan on giving it a few more months before returning to my doctor to examine me. Thank you Earth Clinic, you are a blessing!

Hi there!!! After reading all your testimonial about ACV and unsulphured blackstrap molasses.. I convince my self to try.. in fact ACV and BSM, we use it for cooking.

I have cyst and fibroids.. Right now, Im taking apple cider vinegar w/ blackstrap molasses for two days and I notice that I have brownish spot on my panty liner, I was wondering if this is the side effect of ACV and Unsulphered blackstrap molasses?! .. I want to know if this is normal while taking apple cider and blackstrap molasses.. Thanks!

This is a response to Jehd from Missisaugga, Ontario. Hi, you said you have been taking ACV and Blackstrap Molasses for two days and experiencing brown spotting. How much of each of these are you taking? I have found that the dosage can make a big difference. ~River

I have uterine fibroids and I currently take these two but based on my experience, I can't mix them together. They work better for me taken once a day separately. 2tbsp ACV with 1 tbsp honey(for flavor) in 8 oz lukewarm water in the morning. The Blackstrap Molasses, 1 tbsp in 8 oz lukewarm water in the afternoon. I will wait 30 minutes to an hour after eating before taking any of these. Has been working so far.

Hello all. I am following up from my last post which was a month ago. This is regarding uterine fibroids. When I first started I was taking 2tsp of regular acv (it was all I had at that time) with 8oz of water, twice a day for the first ten days.

As soon as I was able, I got some Raw-unfiltered Organic ACV 'with the mother' and took 2tbsp w/ 12oz of water twice a day. Then I decided I wanted to add the blackstrap molasses, so I mixed 1tbsp of Blackstrap Molasses-unsulphured to the acv (twice a day). A week ago, I noticed weird changes with my stool. It became very soft then turned to diarrhea.

I never took this mixture on an empty stomach. I would eat, wait an hour then take the mixture. The diarrhea got to the point where I had to go to the hospital for dehydration. Mind you, I drank of plenty of water but it robbed me of my electrolytes and plain water wasn't replenishing it fast enough -as the doctor put it.

Once they put me on an IV and gave me fluids I was fine. The conclusion I came to regarding my bowels was mixing the molasses with the Apple Cider Vinegar because my eating habits found no possible suspects. What I decided to do was take them separate and see what happens.

Now I take the 2tbsp ACV w/ 1 tbsp honey w/8 oz lukewarm water once a day (in the morning). Then in the afternoon, I take 1tbsp of Blackstrap Molasses w/ 8 oz lukewarm water (once a day). The diarrhea stopped. Thank God for discernment. :-)

With that issue solved, I can talk about what changes have taken place with my menstrual cycle. As I mentioned before, I would get them every 20 days and they would last up to 8 days. Well, today marks the 20th day and I have not had my period yet. Last night I was out having dinner with a friend and I went to the restroom and I was spotting.

So I figured ok, its right on schedule. Well, by the time I got home, it stopped. It was strange because I didn't have the usual symptoms of breast tenderness, headache, bloating, fatigue or cramping; which is typical two weeks before my cycle even gets here. I'm just waiting for it to start and see how that turns out.

I don't know what this stuff is doing but its definitely doing something. I give the ACV & Blackstrap Molasses a thumbs up! Will return to share how the blood flow turns out. Peace and health to you all~ River

Are you taking the ACV and molasses everyday or just during your cycle?

Hi Ladies, I am 51 and have had severe problems with my cycles for about 5 years. Every year I mentioned to my doctor that my periods where heavy, painful and clotty, I felt pressure on my bladder and in my rectal area. Finally after my last check up on 5/16/2012 she sent me for an ultra sound which I had on 6/14/2012. I have a fibroid tumor the size of an egg in the top of my uterus and 2 small cysts in my pelvic area. She recommended surgery. I felt that was a drastic approach to my problem.

I believe in natural cures and I am so thankful I found this site. I started on _____s ACV with the mother 1 Tbs with 1/4 tsp Aluminum free Baking soda in warm water 2 times a day. I also have been taking Tree of Life Unsulpured Blackstrap Molasses 1Tbs in 6 oz of organic goats milk 2 times a day. I stopped all red meats, wheat, caffeine, sugar. I now am eating a diet full of organic veg and fruits, organic chicken, fish and nuts. Within 2 days I noticed my energy had increased. By day 7 I noticed the tenderness associated with the cysts had lessened dramatically. By day 10 the pressure on my bladder and rectum have abated. I no longer have to wear a pad for fear of leaking. I can still feel the tumor when I lay down, but it feels smaller and not as sore. I have not had my menstrual cycle. It is about 3 days late. I am so anxious to see if it is normal again. I got an unexpected surprise. My hair has starting turning from grey/ white back to the brunette it was 15 years ago. Thanks everyone for sharing your stories and giving me hope. Thanks to Earth Clinic without this site. I may have had a surgery I felt was unnecessary!

Hi everyone, I wanted to give you an update. It has been a month since I started the ACV, BS and BSM. I did my self check today and am pleased to announce that the cervical cyst that I have had since I was 16 is gone!!!! It was the size of a pea and never gave me problems. I can no longer feel the 2 in my abdomen, so I am going to assume they are still there but have shrunk due to my new diet regimen. My fibroid unfortunately is still there, but is smaller, and not as painful. I still have not had a menstrual cycle. I am not sure if this is due to the location of the fibroid or due to eliminating everything from my diet that acts like estrogen in the body. I feel like I am back in menopause again. Hot flashes and sleepiness mostly. If anyone has a cure for these I would love to hear about them.

My energy level is so much better. I have started doing yoga 3x's a week and have lost 12 pounds. My arthritis has improved greatly. I am no longer so sore in the morning that I can't move when I get out of bed.

I have read that many people are having a hard time adjusting to the taste of ACV and BS. I have found the easiest way to take the ACV and BS is in 8 oz of water and add 1TBS of honey. I think it takes like apple juice and is much more palatable.

I will update again in a month and let you know how I am doing. Good luck to you all.

Hello All, It gives me much joy to report that I am on the ACV and BSM regime and IT WORKS!!!! Many thanks to the person(s) who created this blog and took the time to share their information about these two wonderful products. When I first read about it, about a month ago, I figured why not, I didn't think it could hurt, but now I wish I'd known about it soooo long ago.

I am an AA woman, 46 yo with no health insurance and have been diagnosed with fibroids and cysts. I had a fibroid myomectomy (sp) approximately 5 years ago and have been informed that they have returned, mostly on my right side. I am overweight with a history of cancer, hypertension and diabetes in my immmediate family, so time to get to work! I am on an otc iron supplement, I work out and am taking the Apple Cider Vinegar (4 Tbs per day) and Blackstrap Molasses (2 Tbs per day). I've cut back on the dairy, am taking additional otc vitamins and have incorporated shepherd's purse in my diet, not consistently, but in my diet as well. I use the shepherd's purse when I see/think the spotting will begin.

Sooo.... I am currently on my menstrual cycle, I'm on day 3 and my flow has been reduced DRAMATICALLY!!!! I have only had to take 6 pain meds (taking 2 at a time) over the last three days and I can't begin to count the number of pain meds I normally would have taken by now. By now, I usually would have gone thru at least half of a package of SUPER LONG MAXI pads, I've only used maybe 6, no more than 10 so far. I am still clotting, but the pain is MINIMIZED and have not had any MAJOR accidents, some small ones, but that's getting better. I'm not taking the baking soda due to the sodium content.. Don't want to chance it, but overall, I am sooo much better. Thank you so much for the information and will continue to keep you abreast of my progress. Fibroid and cysts removal for all!!!!!

Peace and Blessings, CP

Hi all, I am 27 yrs old and has been diagnosed with multiple fibroids with a couple of them as big as a red plum.. I had this severe pain on to my back running down thru the sides of my thighs and under my abs.. I always had pain during my periods but last month it hit me the worst with 3 continuous sleepless nights.. My husband tried to call after hours doc and they didn't respond.. I felt like I was going thru labour..

It was after this episode of severe pain, while I got a small cramp, I was praying to God to heal me that I googled up for remedies and I found this site. I could not believe the number of testimonials here.. I was so happy to find it.. And went to find the ingredients... Had to search for a while to find Blackstrap molasses.. For all those in Australia.. Try looking for them at health food or organic stores... I found one in a store called The Natural City.. Under the brand name Willowvale organics... I am not having a lot of pain in the last 3 days since I started having it.. But I am scared to death as my next cycle is approaching.. I really hope that this will help me.. As I will be starting to work from next week and it is going to be my probation.. I hope I will not have any problem to conceive a baby which I am hoping to happen some time soon.. I hope all of get better soon and will be able to lead a healthier life.

Thanks for all this wonderful information. I was diagnosed of fibroid 2 years ago and it keep getting bigger and my stomach size it's as if I'm pregnant. I want to try the ACV( which have already ordered online) and blackstrap molasses. My question is which molasses do I need to buy, I saw sweetner molasses without blackstrap is that okay as well? Please, I will be happy if you can help me to clarify this or give me a brand name that I can buy.

Thanks in anticipation of your response.

Hello, I am a 45-year old South Asian woman (not Oriental) who has been on orthotricyclen for fifteen years. Within the last two years my fibroids grew and now they are the size of a 5-month pregnancy. My symptoms are: I get full relatively fast when I eat; have to pee once an hour; and one heavy day in my 4-day period; and slight bulge in my profile. My OB suggested a hysterectomy. I was about to do it and then saw the rate of prolapse post-hysterectomy and that horrified me. That was when I began to look for other ways to lose the fibroids.

On your website I saw the hundreds of testimonials about ACV and BSM and beets so I tried it four days ago (for four days) and I bled yesterday - a full week before my regular period. Mind you, I've been like clockwork for 15 years on the pill. I'm still on the pill and cannot believe I am bleeding (unsulfured BSM). But for some reason the bleeding did not annoy me: instead I was elated, and I felt as if a curse had been lifted after 15 years. I bled about an hour, just a little; then today again I am bleeding a bit. It's not blood blood, but still blood, if you know what I mean.

So obviously this means that my homeopathic experiment can absolutely bust through the synthetic hormones that I am getting through the pill. Now I've noticed on this website that a lot of women who are NOT on the pill are controlling and even shrinking their fibroids through BSM and ACV. My question is, what do I do now? I know that estrogen feeds fibroids but I also see that almost no doctor will say that the pill feeds the fibroids (as you know the pill is a mix of estrogen and progesterone in varying ratios). But I'm starting to think that the fibroids are indeed being fed by my pill; and that they are growing bigger now because I am making less progesterone (as I age and get closer to menopause). I am thinking of going off the pill by first going on a lower dose pill (currently on 35 mcg) and then weaning off that, while doing the BSM and ACV the entire time. I will tell my OB but she's going to freak out, I know it. Especially when I tell her about the BSM and ACV.

Any suggestions?? Anyone know what will happen once I stop the pill? Will the fibroids get really big if I stop the pill?

Hello Maria come off the pills, you do not have to tell your ob, these people just want money they do not care about your health. I was also on the pills and they did not help me. So I stop taking them. And never went back to a doctor. Then I took some cayenne peper and BSM and they stop. And you have to stop eating meat, egggs, cheese let's say you have to go on a diet veg and fruits you can also try the beets and carrots, Blackstrap Molasses and red wine. I wish you wellness.
