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.

I add molasses to my coffee to make it taste better, I have loads of energy when I do. I usually take 1 tsp a day.

In response to Jess140. The clots you are experiencing is the lining of the uturen walls falling. This happens to me & my sister during that time. Some women experience it & some don't. It's just a part of Mother Nature.

Having going thru all good testimony and the fibroid shrinking molasses. Am thinking of seeing it as an option for my 4 months old pregnancy looking fibroid. How many months before this becomes a thing of the past and am I using just molasses alone or mix with other supplements? Thanks

My mom has just started taking blackstrap molasses to help shrink fibroids. She says she can tell she has more energy but also said that she can feel a little cramping in her lower stomach area. I was wondering if this is a sign that maybe the fibroids are shrinking? I don't want it to be anything serious and was hoping that maybe they are contracting and getting smaller and this is what she feels. Has anyone else felt that?

Hello, Where can I get this blackstrap molasses from please?

Replied by Special01

I buy it from the healthfood store. I buy the wholesome brand because it is organic and unsulphured.

In Texas, I have found unsulphered blackstrap molasses at Kroger, HEB, Randall's (Tom Thumb), Whole Foods. It is either with the baking products and syrups or sometimes in the "organic" section depending on the store. Some stores do not carry the unsulphered, but I am sure Whole Foods does...

I have suffered from fibroids for many, many years. My monthy periods were debilitating to say the least. The only thing that worked for me was taking Naproxen and that killed my stomach for the next few days. I had been reading about the black strap molasses and was willing to give it a try. I am so glad I did! The first month I only took it when my menstruation started and felt my cramps had subsided somewhat but the second month I decided to take it a few days before my mentruation and what a difference it made. I feel like a totally different person. I still had to take 1 Naproxen but not 4 or more like before and I probably could have gone without it all together...I will try that next month. As far as the way I consume the molasses, I just add 1 tablespoon to one of my daily green tea servings.

I am 31 female, went to the doctor and was diagnosed with fibroid tumors. I knew that I had some problem in my lower stomach because I constantly had pain when my stomach felt full. The first day of my period always was rough. I don't like surgery, so I went online looking for some natural remedy. I started trying the unsulphur black molasses (1 TB), a little hot water and soy milk. After trying this once daily for two months, the pain has been gone. My periods have become normal again. This also has given me more energy and feeling of less stress.

Blackstrap molasses for fibroids/fibroadenoma: I have read that one should avoid sugar in case of fibroids then how safe is it to take BSM?? I have multiple fibroids in my breasts so am looking for remedies. Also should i avoid potaoes and rice? ?actually doctor has suggested that, but its quite hard to do that

Hello. I have a question about the dosage as they seem to be varied. Do MOST people use one TEAspoon or one TABLEspoon? Also, are you guys taking it everday or only before and during your cycle? Finally, how do you know when to stop; is this intended to be a regimen until menopause? Thanks!

Replied by Heather

Hi, it's tablespoon just before and during your period, some people take as much as 3 tablespoons a day. You need to drink a lot of water with it. I think it's best to then take a teaspoonful or something throughout the rest of the month but it can be challenging as it's not necessarily the easiest thing to take. As to when to stop it's up to you to try and see how it helps you I read an old book which claimed it cured you of fibroids eventually but it would be best to combine it with other therapies and try and establish the cause.

If you read the fibroids posts or google fibroids here there is lots of information. I'm always interested in this as I am similar, I would like to know what it is in the Bsm that helps us, we know that iron helps the anemia which can inturn lighten flow but also I think the copper in it helps reduce the fibroids. It's interesting that peple who take the contraceptive pill have relatively high levels of copper and don't suffer from such uterine issues. Iodine ( lugols) really helps too but it's gradual not instant like Bsm ( google this)

Hello. I am a 51 year old not yet in menopause woman with fibroids, and ovarian cysts.

I take one full tablespoon of BSM in my one cup of coffee every morning for over a year now. I do not find it hard to take at all. In fact, if I make iced tea I use it as a sweetener in that also. I love the taste of it. (I didn't at first, but it really is an aquired taste. Keep at it, and you will start to like it! )

I use it every day, and find that it helps me a lot. Not sure if it is the iron, copper, or one of the trace minerals. I just know it really helps! Good luck to you.

Hi! I've been reading about the Unsulphured Organic Blackstrap Molasses for Fibroids. I'm not sure how it works so I decided to give it a try. I have been taking 1 tablespoon of bsm with soya milk in the morning since Monday morning until now. I was feeling more energetic at first, but there is a few problems. All of a sudden I was bleeding on Tuesday morning. I try mixing it with water only. but it's no used either, so I decided to quit the bsm. It can't be my period, because it ended 1 week ago. My stomach got more bloated, plus I was having a headache. I stop using the bsm on Friday morning. I felt much better. My stomach wasn't bloated and my headaches went away, but I'm still bleeding. I just hope it stop bleeding. I drank some Raspberry tea to decrease the blood flow. Anyway, thank you for the bsm information.

Soya contains estrogens. Its not good for people with fibroids. Fermented soya (natto) on the other hand is better and can help with fibroids.

jennifer from new york, stay away from soy period. Causes estrogen and will make ur fibroids grow. Try serrapeptase this shrinks fibroids and maca. maca will help regulate ur periods and fibroids too.

Blackstrap Molasses CURED my heavy bleeding from Fibroids......When I tell you this is a MIRACLE, I am not kidding. Although my symptoms were not nearly as severe as other peoples', they were still severe to me. I was diagnosed with fibroids in 2002 but only had occasional heavy bleeding so the Dr. told me to do nothing. I had no cramping or anything but within the last few months, I would get one or two days out of each monthly cycle where the bleeding was UNGODLY.....I read somewhere that it was called "flooding" where the blood would just pour out and the clots were never-ending. I would have to keep changing clothes due to the blood leaking out all over the place for 24 hours straight......I knew about the blackstrap molasses and had taken it previously for anemia but stopped for some reason. Any way, last month in the midst of the flood of blood, I took a tablespoon and I swear, withing 5 or 10 minutes, it stopped......later on that night, it seemed like the flooding was starting again so I took another tablespoon and it stopped it dead in it's tracks AGAIN. So this month I decided to take it right when the period started......this is the 3rd day of the cycle and I have been taking it 2 times a day and yesterday I took it 3x......basically every time I felt like it was starting to get heavy and EVERY time it stopped DEAD! This stuff is an unbelievabele and I want the world to know! Anyone can e-mail me with questions if they like.

This is great news, as Ihave been suffering for the last year and a half with fibroids and very heavy bleeding. I started BSM with ACV. Thanks for the feedback very helpful.:-)

Do you know how to tell whether Blackstrap Mollasses are sulphured or not? "Happy Home" brand, the packaging only says that the only ingredient is BSM.

Replied by Mama to Many

Dear Marcin,

I have been looking into this but have not found an answer. Perhaps it is a small company and not online. Is there an address or phone number on the package so you could call?

From reading, it sounds like the reference to sulfur is how it is processed and that it is better if it is done without sulfur. Sulfured will still have the nutrients. Personally, if I couldn't find the answer, I would use the bottle and then next time see if I could fine one that does say for sure that it is unsulfured.

Can anyone tell me the formula for using BSM to shrink fibroids? or of any other really effective remedies? I have fibroids the size of a 5 month pregnancy. I would like to shrink them naturally instead of having a hysterectomy. I have read so many things and I am very confused on what works. Thank you for your help and God Bless you.

Fibroids and Black Strap Molasses:

After reading the success other ladies were having, I dediced to try BSM for my Fibroids. The last 2 1/2 weeks, I have been taking Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses first thing in the morning. I take a tablespoon, mixed in about 2 ounces of hot water and about two ounces of 2% milk or soy milk. My cycle started Monday and I am happy to report that I did not cramp for two days like before. I only cramped for a short time the first day. I had one heavy day and did not pass any clots at all. Today is my last day but I'm barely flowing.

Hello! My name is Gloria Crawford Rowlett, TX, I am 44 years of age, I have been diagnose with uterine fibroids since 1996. As of Jan 2009 I went in for a yearly check-up at my OB-GYN and she stated the fibroids has increased in growth from 6cm to 8cm. I went to the Herb Mart and I was told about the BSM cause I was also told my blood iron was reading 35 which I wasn't yet on the border line of anemic yet, cause border line is 33. The OB-GYN stated I should be taking iron supplements everyday and I explained to her I can't take the iron pills, cause it makes my stomach hard and constipated. The OB-GYN stated she still recommend that I take the iron capsules everyday. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and thats when I was told to take BSM which I started taking since this week 1/29/09. Please help me out with this, my doctor has prescribed me with the birth controls since last year which has slowed my bleeding down a lot. My question is should I stop the birth controls while taking the BSM and how much BSM should I take daily. I was told by one of the specialist at the herb mart to take 1 tblsp twice a week.

I have fibroid tumors, heavy clotting periods and anemia from this. It was horrible every month. I am 49 and every year for the past 5 years my doctor would say "they will disapear when you go through menopause" So my life isn't important now??? I found this web site and read about the Black Strap Molasses. I was sceptical, but was eager to try anything. I put a tablespoon with instant oatmeal every morning. I just had my first cycle since trying this. OMG it WORKS!!!!! No heavy day with clots!!! I can't believe it. I am so excited to tell everyone!

I've read a lot of these testimonials and after reading so many women suffered the exact same conditions I have I really want to share something in addition to the molassas that really does make a life changing difference.

I too have had anemia problems all my life and they became severely worse when I developed fibroid cysts(myoma). After an ultra sound indicating some extremely large cysts my Doctor advised a hysterectomy was the only alternative in removing the fibroid cysts. I opted to get back with him about that decision. I researched for an alternative cure and what I found was a product called Fibrovan which not only rid me of my fibroid cysts in less then 60 days, but reversed my anemia within the first week. It saved me from having a hysterectomy and rid me of my chronic anemia.

After I rid my body of the fibroid cysts I then started a regular intake of a TBSP of molasses in my tea each morning as my sweetner and I have not had any anemia problems whatsoever in over a year. Mostly I have to give an enormous amount of praise and gratitude to the supplement but...the molasses too is making a difference in boosting my iron.

Hello Ladies, I'm now 54 and 4 years ago began menopause, not one period since then. Yeah!!! I used to have problems with fibroids and still have the fibroids but no problems unless I dont listen to my own adivce. I wanted to share what was reccommended to me by a holistic Dr..... Change your diet!!! Chicken, meat and eggs are coming from animals injected with hormones and these same hormones are feeding your fibroids and helping them grow. Have you seen how big chicken wings are now days!!!! Hormones! When I used to have myperiod I had huge clots ( like liver and onions) but when I changed my diet , it all got much better, no clots, no cramps and I felt much better. I still love chicken but now I buy it from Whole Foods and buy cage free eggs , the extra money is worth the freedom to be able to eat and be pain free. Ive shared this info with some friends and it has helped and I hope it helps someone out ther too. I chose this option because I dont want to have a hysterectomy. God Bless us all, we go through so much at least give us our chicken!!!

If like YEA has shares in BSM as she seems to be the only one saying how good it is. I have used it and it doesn't work, it's like eating sugar. I would really appreciate it if anyone had some genuine remedies as I am also suffering. I have had embolisation but this was unnsuccesful.

Hi. I am battling with fibroids too. I found out taking seven seas oil reduces blood cloth and heavy bleeding. For those who are unsure about blackstrap molasses. They increase your energy level because of the sugar content and they are also good as a source of iron. I felt better after taking blackstrap molasses in terms of energy levels, I still take it now and again.
