12 Natural Remedies for Fibroids

Bitter Gourd

Posted by Mechelle (South America) on 11/21/2010

My mom had a large fibroid. I remember her putting my hand to feel the hardness on her abdomen. She passed this fibroid out after using karila(bitter gourd)leaves. There are two types of bitter gourd, the tiny round one with the small leaves(that grows wild) is what she used. She would rise in the am and pick a handful of this vine. Extract the dark green juice by rubbing the leaves in the palms of the hands. Drink a tablespoonful of this very bitter juice daily. I don't know for how long and I cannot ask her because she is deceased.

Hello to all the women suffering from Fibroids, I have 5-6 very very large fibroids and my uterus is 20 cms - I was OK with life till it was 18cms but after it increased to 20 cms life has been unbearable - I am even more tired, fatigued, look like I am in 3rd trimester and hair loss etc etc.. My periods are heavy but they last max 2 days - I started using VIT B6 100 MG daily - even during periods to reduce the flow. It helped a lot..but we may need to take more than 100 mg during periods if the flow is heavy and this causes temporary tingling and numbness in the feet which will go away once you stop B6 for a day. I don't want to go in for surgery so am desperately looking for a CURE.

I read about BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES AND STARTED UNSULPHURED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES YESTERDAY - I got my period today AND I cannot believe it - its lightest of the light, I don't feel bloated, heavy tired, I am not sighing and groaning as I normally do. I have started taking 1 spoon AM and 1 spoon PM with warm water and I have just taken 2 spoons - MY UTERUS IS SINGING - my body can feel the difference. I have read 2-3 firm testimonials of women who cured and dissolved their FIBROID TUMOURS with Blackstrap Molasses. I can confirm that with 1st 2 spoons my UTERUS is singing, my periods are the lightest ever and I am sitting down to share this - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RUSH AND GET A BOTTLE OF UNSULPHURED BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES AND TAKE 2 SPOONS A DAY AND CHECK FOR YOURSELF AND REPORT progress. BSM is very very rich in IRON, and a host of antioxidants and VIT B6 which increases progesterone. 1 IMP matter to note here and all women will already know this - if you take any IRON supplement, your periods will end up much more heavy hence I always avoided iron supplements and used to rely on beet juice, carrot juice, wheatgrass juice and lots of VIT C. Now I am using only BSM because it has all the IRON a woman needs. If you wish, only if you wish you may add carrots, beets, aloe vera juice to your drink. I don;t

I am using only BSM and it has come as a life saver and a miracle.

I am very very confident that if bleeding is controlled - then it can shrink fibroids. BSM is very very rich in antioxidants and B6 that balance PH levels inside the uterus.

I am NOT taking any other medicines or anything else - I just stopped diary and meat and eggs and continue with vegetables. I was taking VIT B6 but BSM is doing far far far better than VIT B6 so I have stopped VIT B6.

If for some reason it is not working for you - stop and check what else are you taking that is not letting BSM work.. is it birth control pills or something else hormonal. Stop that and continue with BSM

I will share my feedback in 2-3 months if I notice a reduction in the size but the way day 2 has gone, I am very very confident that BSM is doing something awesome to clean up the uterus and the pelvic area.

Please take BSM and continue this thread - I have tried every other remedy last 7-8 years and nothing has worked to reduce Fibroids or the blood flow. The only thing that helped me so far is VIT B6 but BSM is working at a level far higher than VIT B6.

Brand I used was Aunt Pattys Unsulphured Organic Blackstrap Molasses from whole foods for $4.99 for 12 ounces - if you can't get this one, use ANY UNSULPHURED BRAND.

The PH level of the Uterus is somehow magically getting reset by BSM - ls report back - I think anything that reduces the flow and emptying and flooding during periods is the right way to shrink fibroids. It shows that it knows how to handle the ECO-SYSTEM.

Contrary to what most Doctors may not tell you - HEAVY PERIODS puts all women at much higher risk for all kinds of PEVLIC AREA cancers

In fact that's why I started VIT B6 to control and reduce the flow by medication.


I have gotten my life back.

I currently have a cyst and fibroids. I'm wondering if I can take the blackstrap molasses while I'm on my period? I'm currently getting periods that are lasting me two weeks I have stop the bleeding with medication from the doctor that has lasted me. Can I start the black strap molasses while on my actual period?


Yes Jeannie you can and must take it during after and before periods

Please use 1 spoon AM and 1 spoon PM with warm water

Take unsulphured brand

Supplement with zinc 20 mg since that offsets heavy copper

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

My teenage daughter had very irregular periods. A couple summers ago, her period lasted 3 weeks without relenting or tapering at all. Much to her dismay, I mandated she ingest 1 to 2 Tbsp. of black strap molasses a day to start. She hated the taste but it started to taper her period. We upped it to 2 doses a day and it stopped in 3 to 4 days. I am a believer:)

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

Is it a TABLESPOON or. TEASPOON full of BSM in warm water?

Put in how much warm water? a CUP?

Do you take the BSM on empty stomach or does it matter if before or after eating?

Thanks for sharing your info!

Mama to Many

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!

unsulphured blackstrap molasses for multiple fibroids

I read all the comments on the above as a natural remedy for shrinking fibroids!

Unfortunately, not many have come back to report if their fibroids(especially big ones like 9mm and above) shrunk or not?

It will be helpful if someone could write their story on how they went with using the unsulphured blackstrap organic molasses for shrinking fibroids and how much they had and when, like with food/after food, with water or on its own?

Thanks so much guys!!

I read once on earthclinic that blackstrap molasses works wonders for fibroids. I told a co worker about what I found as she was heading to surgery after the holiday's. She was clearly upset as she had grandchildren to support and missing work would have actually hurt her situation rather than helped...she took my advice and took the recommend dose...I lost contact with her bcuz my job with the company was temporary. A year later I saw her at the grocery store and she noticed me with excitement in her eyes, she told me that after taking the blackstrap molasses her fibroids were completely gone...she didn't need surgery after all...needless to saz there's a very happy grandma in San Antonio today!! Lol thanks earthclinic for all the useful information...

I have a 8.5 cm fibroid. I had it for 8 years. doctors tell me to go for hysterectomy. I tried everything to avoid it. I take whole food based supplements to balance my hormones, it took almost a year to balance them, my period is much better and my fibroid did not grow within a year which is a good sign but I needed it to shrink. I heard about the blackstrap molasses, I started taking it four days ago two times a day two tablespoons. Do you think it will help shrink the fibroid now especially that my hormones are balanced? Is two tablespoons a day enough to help shrink the fibroid and how long do you think it will take.

I buy organic AND unsulphured, blackstrap molasses...get it at Whole Foods. I've been taking 1 Tbsp twice a day since August and have experienced good results. Still heavy bleeding, but manageable (was crazy heavy before and with huge clots). Practically no clots now and my period only lasts a week or less compared with three weeks. I'm a believer! TIP: Just swallow it as fast as you can. At first, I tried taking tiny "sips" off the spoon, but it's better to just get it over with. Also, in the middle of my cycle, I take a teaspoon twice a day instead of a tablespoon.

I've suffered with fibroids for over 18 yrs. I've had 2 laparoscopic surgeries. My 1st surgery was a fibroid the size of a basketball! I'm a small woman. In 2005 I had my 2nd surgery where my Dr removed 3 smaller ones. It's 2013 and I have 6 fibroids of various sizes & a cyst on my ovary. I'm 49 still suffering with heavy bleeding and massive clots, the pain has been so severe I've fainted. My hemoglobin is very low & I'm so fatigued all the time. I have constant pain & pressure in my abdomen. I feel like I always have to use restroom & since my 1st surgery I have troubles emptying my bladder. ? I need relief! I'm anxious 2 try unsulphured bsm, how much to take? When to take & should I be mixing it with warm water? Please advise.

Dear Blonde Q T, So sorry about your suffering and bleeding! If your iron is really low, I would start with 1 T. of Blackstrap morning and evening. You can put it in milk if you like. I just take mine off the spoon. :)

Liquid Chlorophyll is excellent also to get your iron up. It is also helpful for the bleeding. In times past, with heavy cycles, taking a tsp. of the chlorophyll a few times a day really helped me.

Cayenne pepper (not delicious, but so helpful) can help check the bleeding. Try 1/2 t. in 8 oz of grape juice when you are bleeding heavy. It is spicy, but it won't last long. I did this to help heavy bleeding during a miscarriage and it helped a lot.

Regarding the bladder trouble... Perhaps the surgeries have caused some scar tissue causing trouble the the fibroids increasing pressure? Here is a tea you could make that would helpful for the pelvic region (and others) and the plantain in it can help if you are dealing with a minor bladder infection:

Mix 3 parts red raspberry leaf with 2 parts plantain and 1 part peppermint. Put 2 t. In a mug and add boiled water. Steep 15 minutes and strain. Take 3 cups a day for 3 months. (Sounds like a lot. But it takes time to heal. Red Raspberry may also be helpful for the fibroids as it is so good for women for so many things! )

Please read around on earth clinic some more about bladder infections or prolapsed bladder for more ideas as one of those things might help this secondary problem.

Please also let us know what helps you!

God bless you!

Hi, sorry to hear of your fibroids and all the associated health challenges. Blackstrap molasses will help you straight away- we are all different so the general dose is average you have to see how it works for you and the stage of your condition- if I am bleeding heavily I would take 1 tablespoon of Blackstrap Molasses washed down with a glass of water at least 3 times a day- the odd glass of water with 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar helps to stop bleeding too.

I suspect that we have these continual reoccurances because we do not change our nutrition. Once your diet becomes more alkaline this will help too- eat more veg and green salads.

If you read the fibroid section you will see that iodine is a great supplement to take to reduce cysts and fibroids aswell.

I think vitamins A and D from Cod liver oil helps too.

Organic unsulphered Blackstrap Molasses is great because the vitamins and minerals are in a natural state and easily absorbable.

Once your bleeding is under control and you are less anemic you can take a maintenance dose every day- I take 1 teaspoon, you'll have to experiment to see if that works for you. Good luck.

I have been taking blackstrap molasses for about a month now, my last period was a little better than before(less cramping, shorter days)... I have fibroids! But since my last period, I have been bleeding a little everyday. My next period is in about 8 days. I was wondering if my unusual bleeding in between period this month had anything to do with the fact that I have started drinking BM! Does it means that my body is getting used to it?? Getting rid of fibroids?? Has anyone experienced this before?? I drink BM with a glass of milk... I find it easier to drink that way. Any feedbacks appreciated :)

The thing I had to do to control the bleeding was take Blackstrap Molasses twice a day. Once first thing in the morning and again 12 hours later. For me it is 6 am and 6 pm. Straight on a spoon and I chased it with yogurt. I too had huge clots. The mother in law of my childhood friend is a doctor and she says the huge clots are not from the period, rather they are hemorroids. She suggested I take Rutin and I did and what I thought to be clots calmed down tremendously.

The doctors claim I have 7 fibroids. So I have am trying the Castor oil packs for two weeks now and will continue for thirty days because God knows I dont trust any doctor to cut me.

I will surely let you know what I see in June 2012 when I do another ultrasound. Castor Oil cures tumors so I believe I'll be fine.

I am extremely thankful to earthclinic. com and all the people who have posted their responses regarding the effectiveness of Blackstrap molasses for menstrual related and fibroid related problems.

I am a working woman aged 50 and had been having a terrible time since the last 5 years. I was suffering from heavy bleeding during my periods which was progressively getting worse by the month.

In Dec 2007 I was told that there was a fibroid in my uterus which was about 4 cms. But the gynec suggested that once I reached menopause there wouldn't be any problem. So I decided not to do anything about it. A year later the sonography showed it to be the same size. So I wasn't too worried. But my periods had become a little more painful and heavy. I attributed it to approaching menopause and still did nothing.

In Dec 2009, my annual health check up revealed that my hemoglobin had fallen to 6. 7 and the fibroid was now slightly larger, around 5. 8 cms. By now I had reached the stage of dreading my periods every month as now the number of days had gone from 5 to 8 with the second and third days being extremely painful. Sometimes the pain used to be so intense that I used to literally faint.

The period after that was one long suffering as now I would have incessant bleeding for upto 15 days at a time. Still, I held on in the belief that menopause would surely happen and I would be free of this torture.

However, the sonography in Jan this year showed that the fibroid (still one in number) was now 6. 7 cms, hemoglobin was 8. 4 (after taking an iron supplement everyday). Everyone, family, friends, office colleagues started berating me for my inaction, urging me to go for a hysterectomy. By now I too had become tired of the constant torture. My life revolved and was governed by when my periods would start and stop.

So finally in March I went to see the gynec to finally resolve the matter. She said there was no way out except surgery.

That was when I googled "how to shrink fibroids naturally". I came upon ur site and was highly encouraged by the responses. But I wasn't sure how I could procure this product in Mumbai. But luckily for me, a few searches and phone calls later I came to know that it is available in Mumbai. I immediately placed an order which was delivered to me in 3 days time.

I started taking it on 10th March. 1 tbsp every morning in a glass of warm water. Today is the 5th of April. My last period had lasted 14 days with extremely heavy bleeding and HUGE clots almost for the entire duration.

This month, my period started on 3rd April. 3 days are over, but I just cant believe this. There has been ABSOLUTELY no pain, hardly any bleeding and simply no discomfort. As if the past few years never happened.

I shall keep you informed of future developments. A big THANK U to all.

Hi I live in Pretoria South Africa and aged 46. Iam generally healthy though I have high blood pressure and medication daily. I started taking unfermented soya porridge every morning since january 2011. I went for my gyno examinations including pap smear in jan 2011 and all was clear. To my surprise, about 4 months ago I started getting urinary tract infections that would not respond to 3 types of medication. My periods became painful and I would feel a lot of pressure and discomfort in my pelvic area. I would keep running to the toilet.

I went to see my doctor 3 weeks ago and he said I had 3 fibroids 3cmx4cm and 4cmx3cm.

1. My question is this the cause of the pain I feel?? Is the size of the fibroids too big??

2. I have read that Blackstrap Molasses helps. I have gone to health shops and all I see is nature's choice sweet mollasses de-sulphured , and nature's choice bsm, I have asked the shop owner if the BSM is desulphured and he doesn't know!!!!!!!! What brand is desulphured as I am allergic to sulphur?

3. Could the soya have made the fibroids grow??

4. I really like it as my breakfast cereal- can I ferment the flour myself??

Blessings to you all.

Hello Ed from South Africa,

I wanted to say to you that the soya could've have made the fibroids grow because soy has estrogenic properties and too much estrogen in the womans body can do all sorts of harm, including causing fibroids. I myself, recently had given up meat and only ate soy products. After a year of this diet, my menstrual was completely off and I have developed cysts. I am going to try this black strap molasses and see if it helps. Will keep everyone updated.

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.

Hi, What was the outcome of your doctor's visit? Did your fibroid shrink? Was it actually gone? I have two large fibroids and surgery has been recommended. I'm willing to do natural remedies and change my diet first.

Therefore, I'm interested in any feedback regarding shrinking fibroids. Thanks in advance, Tameka

Hello, I suffer from fibroids. I have 4. I tried all kind of natural remedies. I found the blackstrap remedy and I want to try it. How long I have to try it to see a difference. Does it make a difference if is organic blackstrap molasses?

Where can I buy this blackstrap molasses in Kuala Lumpur as I have fibroid about 8cm and doctor said I need operation to remove my whole uterus but I still want children! Please help.

Hi Penny, not sure if you're still looking for the Black strap Molasses in KL, but if you are then you might want to check out Vitacare Farmasi in Midvalley Mega mall (lower ground floor, opposite Tino's restaurant). I recently purchased mine from there, although in powder form mixed with Ginger, by the brand Earth Organic and it seems quite effective. I have been taking that in conjunction with eating raw garlic (2 cloves a day), drinking Green tea (once everyday), and eating loads of raw red & yellow peppers (daily) with a glass of lemon infused water. I really hope this helps you.

Best wishes to you & God Bless :)

i have just recently been told by my doctor that I have an under active thyriod, I also have fibroids and have found out that molasses(the unsulphured kind) is very good for the treatment of the fibroids, what I would like to know is can I still use the molasses, even though I have this thyriod problem.

You need iodine if you are sure about your thyroid problem. This will cure u in 3wks-1month.

I was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and about two weeks prior to my surgery I read about blackstrap molasses. I started taking in the mornings. Put a teaspoon in a little warm water and filled a cup with organic milk every morning.

After I had surgery, my doctor advised that she found my fibroids were much smaller than she thought. Her words were "It wasn't as bad as she thought. " I don't know if it was the blackstrap molasses that helped them or what, but I think there is no doubt that the molasses is giving me more energy during the day. I am continuing to take it every day, and think I may take it morning and night after I have read many of the posts.

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis/Adenomyosis along with a 6cm fibroid in the right side of my uterus a week ago. I started to have extreme bleeding (blood clots) last year and feel I wwaited longer than I should have to get it checked out, but I have no medical insurance, so things can become expensive for me very quickly. My Dr. recommended a hysterectomy but I am 34 and may want to have children, so I started the molasses Monday evening (the 21st). I am scheduled for surgery in one month to have the fibroid cut out, along with some of the Adenomyosis, but I want to avoid this if I can, so I'm trying to shrink them naturally.

I will update everyone in a few days. (Those of you who have yet to post, it's VITAL that you report back to let others know what is working and nor working for you!).

Hi Thanks I enjoyed this article. I have fibroids and am trying to shrink them naturally. I am following the advice in an e-book. This site is excellent and has a link to the e-book. Fibroid Pain

After taking 2 tbs. Daily I haven't noticed any difference. Still flooding, still cramping. I could try switching brands (I used Crosby's), but I doubt that it will help. I'm disappointed that I don't have the results that others have had.

BSM never helped my fibroids. Nothing did really, but eventually surgery was a good solution for me.

Crosby's blackstrap molasses contains sulphur - you need unsulphered blackstrap molasses.

Crosby's is NOT!
