I was diagnosed with a benign ovarian cyst. Last sono, was 1 month ago. Dr said it was benign, but we should remove it because of the size. With that they want to take my ovaries out too. I'm 52 and probably don't need them anymore, but I was freaking out. I went home and googled holistic cures, and since then I've been taking 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses and 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar 2 x a day...

Verdict as of yesterday. My cyst went from 7.71 to 6.67, my fibroid went from a 4.99 to a 3, and from uterine lining went from thick to perfect!!! How about that for a holistic cure, and the prayer of god. I will continue this for the rest of my life!!! There are a lot of benefits from drinking these 2 products....

Hey, luckily found this page and I would love to try it but I need to confirm some things. I have follicular cysts of different sizes in both ovaries and I have a thyroid condition also, have 125 mcg thyronome everyday. My gyno told me it's very normal and it's not a tension as if now, I should wait and watch it will go away. This report is 2 months old and now I am having some sort of pain in pelvis and I am freaking out. I am overweight too but I always have my periods regularly except once 4 years back that too for 1 month. Should I try it out? And what amount should I take and at what time? I am 24 yrs old. Please help!

Dear Manisha,

A typical dose of blackstrap molasses is 1 Tablespoon per day. With the apple cider vinegar, 1-3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water once or twice a day.

For the pelvic pain I would try castor oil packs. They always work for me, and quickly. I like to use them overnight. You are not supposed to use them during your period, though.

May I just ask, is it safe to take apple cidar vinegar with honey? I'm 2 weeks pregnant with Endometrial cyst in left part. size 6.40cm

Replied by Mama To Many

Dear Worried Girl,

I have taken apple cider vinegar with honey before, during and after pregnancy. For most people it is not a problem unless perhaps you have diabetes in pregnancy and need to watch your sugar.

Hi, I would like to ask if can I use honey instead of molasses for ovarian cysts? Will it still be effective? I'm from philippines and I have endometriotic cyst and I want to try the ACV home remedies for my cyst.. How important is molasses?

Replied by Mama To Many

Dear Maegan,

The blackstrap molasses is important for the remedy. But some find that apple cider vinegar alone is enough to cure cysts. You could add honey to sweeten it but I don't think it actually helps the cysts.

Please also try castor oil packs for your cyst. It helped me very much with one a couple of years ago.

What are castor oil packs?

EC: You will find directions on this page.

Replied by Tim

ACV- Not regular applecider vinegar. It should be Raw. The label will have 'With the Mother' on it and it is unfiltered . Regular Apple Cider Vinegar has most of the nutrients stripped out. When using Raw ACV, be sure to shake it vigorously immediately before use.

Hello all, I am hopeful that the next post I do will be good news only, about a month ago my scan result showed small cyst n small fibroid. I got apple cider vinegar and black strap molasses. I didn't take it religiously, I did another scan yesterday, no fibroid but the cyst is now 14cm x 7cm. I don't want a surgery, have started my apple cider vineger and hope for shrinking asap by God's grace.

Replied by Aisha

Hey I was told I had a ruptured cyst, I started taking apple cider vinegar one spoon every morning, I need to know how long does it take to dissolve and why do I get slight pains in my ovaries. Any advise?

Replied by Mama To Many

Dear Aisha,

I don't know how long apple cider vinegar will take to dissolve what remains from the cyst. But many people do use it daily on a long term basis and find it helpful for a multitude of female and other problems.

If you are still having pain, I have found castor oil packs or charcoal poultices to work wonderfully for cyst pain. I use them for a couple of hours or over night. Just do not use a castor oil pack during your period. Charcoal poultices are okay any time.

I had cyst in my right ovary of 5.9*5.2cm and doctor gave me novelon for cyst for three months.but after three months when I got my second tvs done then I got to know that right ovary cyst was gone but there was another cyst of 3cm in my left overy. Doctor prescribed me Dhuphaston 10mg for 20 days, but my mensus di not come and after US my cyst was more bigger then earlier report (it say 4.5 cm with internal echoes (hemorragic Cyst) she prescribe me Sysron-n thrice a day. I started taking it on 26/3/2015 and my mensus came on 2/4/15. I am feeling pain in me left leg and pelvis . I JUST wanted to know that can Apple Cider Vinegar and BSM will help me for dissolving my hemorrhagic cyst. Have anyone experience with it?

Replied by Mama to Many

Dear Shona,

Is the pain in your pelvis and leg a new symptom since your last ultrasound? I am concerned about this because this type of pain can indicate a torsion of a cyst. When I had a torsion, I did have surgery. You can lose part of the ovary with an untreated torsion.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses are both easy and safe things to try. They have helped many with cysts.

I would also add charcoal poultices over the ovary area overnight 4-5 nights a week. They have helped me with cysts and also help the pain.

I am also having an ovarian cycst problem. I am 56 years old. I have been having pain in my vagina area when I visited my gyn and did an ultra sound I was told that I have a cyst. I was also sent to do blood test and x ray which I have not yet done. However, I have been trying the apple cider vinegar and the molasses but not on a large scale. My greatest challenge is that it makes me urinate most of the nights so I get little or no sleep. Please give me your advise.

Congrats on the pregnancy! I am glad everything came out good for you, did you get surgery to get an ovary removed or a cyst?

Replied by Cindy

Hello Mama...

Can you tell me if it is normal to be in extreme pain after starting the ACV, Molasses, beets, ginger, lemon, honey for ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids? I can hardly move at this point and I don't want anything to burst and end up in ER...I'm hoping it's just inflammation and taking aloe vera gel straight from the plant will remedy this pain...My thinking is that I need to go slower, perhaps less ingredients too...I just don't feel natural healing should hurt this much.. What are your thoughts?? Thank you very much and God Bless.

Replied by Mama To Many

Dear Cindy,

I agree that healing should not hurt this much.

I would definitely go slower with the treatment you are pursuing. You might want to just add one new ingredient a week so you know how each suits you.

If severe pain continues or you have other symptoms I would get medical attention. As I mentioned in this thread before, severe pain when you have a cyst could be a torsion. An untreated torsion could affect future fertility.

I hope you feel better soon!

Hello Everyone - Posting an article from UK - if it helps - please post your results with exact steps - it does seem that Apple Cider Vinegar (2sp) + Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses (UBSM) (1 sp) cured Fibroids and Ovarian cysts in 3 months


Testimony 1 from the link

  • Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and Blackstrap Molasses worked, along with castor oil rubbed on my belly each night after a warm shower.
  • 2 tbsp ACV mixed with 2tbsp BSM. It doesn't taste all that wonderful but you get used to it. Some people like it. Some people can't handle them together and have them separately which is fine too. Some people get bloated when they have them together. I did a few times but it got better. I did this routine religiously for a few months... can't remember exactly how long and then I eased off it. I didn't even have it every day. I would have the full doses about a week before my periods would start (I'd be reminded because I used to get cramps), and continued for the duration of my period.
  • Some months later my period became more regular. At first I bleeded heavy for three days, even clotted but apparently, it was just the fibroids breaking down. After the three days, my period would stop which surprised me. After a few more months my period was regular as clock work, light and completely painless... apart from the odd slight discomfort to remind me it was there, I was doing great.
  • After six months of begging this routine, I did another ultrasound and my fibroid and cysts were gone from both ovaries. Actually one of my ovaries had shrunk so small they couldn't even find it... which was a first lol.

The ACV broke down my fiber completely and the BMS stopped the bleeding and replenished a lot of nutrients I lost. It also got rid of a few cysts as well as the fibroids. The castor oil will aide with circulation, breaking down the fibroids and removing the toxins by supporting the liver. It's also anti-inflammatory.

Also read up on xenoestrogens and try and cut them out of your life as much as you can. Eat foods that block estrogen production such as pears, apples, berries, melons etc. Avoid estrogen producing foods such as dairy, caffeine and alcohol. You can search there net for more foods to have and avoid.

Eat more greens... they're also anti estrogens plus they're high in iron. If you're not a vegan/vegetarian, whenever you eat red meat, have some greens with a bit of lemon juice. It's been found that heme iron (from meat sources) help the absorption of non-heme iron and the vitamin c from the lemon juice will help it along even more.

I also took magnesium (chelated magnesium) and potassium, both from supplements and from food. If you crave chocolate, try switching to cocoa nibs which are one of the richest and yummiest sources of magnesium... and other important minerals.

I used to suffer with endometriosis, fibroids, cysts and adhesions. My periods used to be irregular and heavy for about eight days and I was severely anemic.

Hope this helps someone, cheers




Testimony 2

Lady used ACV and black strap molasses for almost three months and got results. I mixed two tablespoons of ACV and a tablespoon molasses in a quarter glass of warm water. I took that every morning before breakfast and every evening before bed. I did not take any milk during that period. In less that three months my cyst was gone.

If this helps, please post exact your problem and exact steps you used to cure ...

Good Luck! Pepsi

Hi all,

For all those who used apple cider vinegar and black strap molasses to get rid of your cysts - what types of cysts did you have?

I have a complex cyst (not the cancerous type, but it could turn malignant in the far future), around 3 cm that I've had for at least four years. I've heard that functional cysts are much easier to get rid of than complex ones, so not sure if it's even worth trying this or if I should just give up and have surgery as the doctor recomended.

Good question, I'm not sure if you will get a reply on here, this thread is old. I just came across it because I'm also researching cysts like crazy! I have a 6cm blood-filled cyst on my left ovary. Which could be an endometrioma (aka chocolate cyst), which would be a sign of endometriosis :(( I'm so terrified of that diagnosis. I also want to know if ACV would help a chocolate cyst. My gut feeling is that it wouldn't. Because it's a different type of cyst, that grow on the ovary, or in it, independently of the ovulation follicles. What kind of complex cyst do you have?

Bangor, Me

I don't know if it will work for that, but I do know that there are so many benefits for ACV that you should do it regardless. It helps with insulin resistance, cysts, dandruff, teeth whitening, and a whole lot more. Even if it doesn't work for your specific cysts, which I fully believe it will, it's worth it for overall health. :)

Better But With Side Effects

After learning of my having a small ovarian cyst (first one, I'm 45yrs old), I found a remedy to help shrink it. Apple cider vinegar and unsulphered black strap molassas 1 T each in hot water as a tea twice a day. I've been at it for at least 1 month. Since then the dull ache has gone. I feel great but the hot flashes/night sweats I've had over the past 8 months to a year have increased and now no period for the last 2 months. Has anyone ever found acv/molassas tea to cause a cessation of menstration ? Perhaps it's just my body doing it's thing regardless of the tea :) I go back to my doctor in a few weeks and will follow up on the cyst, but am curious if you think there could be a connection ?! ?! ? Thanks

Hi Julie,

Well, I am so glad your cyst pain is improved, but very sorry that the menopause symptoms have increased!

I have used ACV and BSM for years and have never had it to cause me to skip cycles. For me, it only seemed to improve my cycles. (I am 46, for the record.) But, everyone is different, so I couldn't promise you that ACV and BSM are the cause.

Black Cohosh might be helpful to your increased menopause symptoms. It is good for hot flashes and night sweats.

Let us know how it goes with the Dr. appointment and if you find something to help your hot flashes. I hope you feel better soon.

I have cyst also and it was very painful. But I did notice once I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar the pain subtle also I missed my cycle for 3 months. But I haven't been on ACV for about 3 weeks. I'm thinking its all related. Now the flow has come back with vengeance. I got to head back to the store and get my cider to see if this really works again.

Worked for me. I found out I was pregnant and had a large cyst on my ovary. Went to ER and they said this happens sometimes because the ovary is producing hormones to support the pregnancy. I went home and for a week took a tables poon molasses and chased with juice and acv. After a week I saw the obstetrician and did an ultrasound he was baffled because he couldn't find the cyst. Because I cured it with Blackstrap Molasses and acv.

In response to:

10/28/2010: Ew from Rockville, Md, Usa: "Ovarian Cyst Remedy - Alfalfa. Did not work. I'm writing about a possible remedy that I read elsewhere (someone supposedly had success with Premium Blended Alfalfa). The alfalfa would theoretically have worked by balancing the extra estrogen. Not only did I not get better, but I believe that the alfalfa may have caused the cyst to enlarge-- and I've been in horrible pain for the last 2 days. It may be possible that this remedy works for smaller cysts (?), but if in doubt, skip it. Hope that this experience helps someone out there."

I don't know a thing about the Alfalfa. I can share my personal circumstances, as I believe relate to ovarian cysts. I had several menstrual cycles where the pain I felt was greater than what I remember childbirth labor pains to have been. The last time I ended up at the hospital parking lot. The pain had finally subsided by the time we arrived in the middle of the night. I don't have insurance, so I opted to return home. I researched and found this site. Praise God! I needed help and couldn't afford it. I used Apple Cider Vinegar, which I purchased for cheap (less than $2.00)! I used Unsulfered Black Strap Molasses, which I found online for cheap ($9.58 for two 15 oz. Bottles)! I started using 7 days prior to my last cycle and I can tell you, I HAD NO PAIN during this cycle. I mixed 8 oz of warm water with 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 tablespoon Unsulphered Black Strap Molasses. I drank it every evening before bed. It is not great, but the results were GREAT! Now, I do not know how long I should continue and could not find the answer on the net. I will continue taking through the next month and will let all know the outcome of my next cycle.

Apple Cider Vinegar for Ovarian Cyst and Fibroids. Read tru these pages when looking for a solution to ovarian cyst and fibriod, came across apple cider vinegar and unsulphured molasses which I have been using now for two weeks but the hot sensations in my right hand side of my abdomen and pelvic has increased and I feel more pains. Please I want to know if its the apple cider working or something else is going wrong. Expecting your reply soonest because I am really worried

Dear Priscy,

Do you have fever or bleeding or other symptoms?

I read some of the stories on the ovarian cyst page here at Earth Clinic and a lady named Bethany had a similar experience... You might read that first page of ovarian cysts to read her story.

I don't think the vinegar and molasses would cause a new problem. Perhaps they are causing things to happen too fast in your body. You might try taking a break from them both for a couple of days, then try one or the other and see how you respond.

Charcoal poultices have been used to treat both of your conditions sucessfully and might be helpful to you now while you are having worse symptoms. Charcoal is good at helping with pain and inflammation. If you can get some activate charcoal powder, you can make a poultice to place over your abdomen where you have pain. Charcoal must be wet to work. You would mix ith with water (or with flax seed and water) to make a paste. spread it on a paper towel and cover with another towel. Place on your abdomen and cover with plastic (to keep in the moisture. ) I would do this for an hour twice a day, and even overnight for several days. (To use it to cure cysts and fibroids, you might need to treat for many weeks.)

You can also take charcoal internally - 2 t. in a glass of water.

Try to drink plenty of water or herbal tea as dehydration will make the pain worse.

Please keep us posted on how you are doing. I will be praying for your relief.

Beginners or each time you eat or drink, like black strap molasses or others like apple cider vinegar, garlic, lemon, ginger, honey, kambucha tea, home made mangosteen puree mix with honey & lemon, many more, all these are natural food......any ache, pain, wind feel like bloated, gastric or any other symptom appear....it's just the process of healing, some call it healing crisis, mistakenly or wrongly stated side effects.....so not to worry, just continue for few days or week, you will feel the different..

To shrink my giant ovarian cyst, I started taking ACV (apple cider vinegar) & BSM (blackstrap molasses) on July 27th, 2012 by using the recipe from EarthClinic.

For over one year, I was taking megace to try to reverse my uterine cancer (stage one), which went back to being just endometrial-hyperplasia-atypical-complex (aka Just Barely Pre-cancerous). All my doctors wanted me to get a hysterectomy; hence, they all refused to prescribe megace for me. Hence, I had to buy without prescription. I spent over $1, 000 USD on megace [I gave up trying to convince my doctors.]

In July I ran out of funds and can no longer buy megace on my own. I noticed I was bleeding with some blood clumps, again. I knew any progress I made with megace was being pushed back because I wasn't taking megace anymore.

After taking ACV & BSM, I noticed I had less bleeding (and gained tons of energy! ) In late September 2012, I added Iodine (from Kelp) as an energy booster. I noticed that my bleeding stopped COMPLETELY (and my severe bleeding chapped lips healed! I had been visiting a dermotologist for this very problem for over 18 months.).

According to my latest pelvis ultrasound and uterine biopsy, ACV & BSM did not shrink my ovarian cyst but I am completely free of uterine-cancer! In fact, I am told I have no "hyperplasia or malignancy"!!!

What ACV, BSM, & Iodine did in a little over two months exceeds that of megace!! I CANNOT believe this!! I am sharing my account because I owe to all of you who so generously shared your challenges and triumphs.

If you have any clues why my ovarian cyst seems to have gotten bigger (21 x 11. 8 x 20. 4 cm), please post your answer -- so everyone can read it! THANK YOU!

Hi Pearl. Has the ACV and BSM drink helped a lot in maintaining the Endometrial Hyperplasia Atypical Complex? I was also into Megace but was asked by my doctor to stop it coz it greatly thinned the uterus lining. Want to try this drink as a substitute for Megace. Please respond soon. Thanks!

I have been taking the ACV and molasses (8 oz of water, 1 TBSP of organic Blackstrap Molasses, 1 TBSPS of Organic ACV) twice a day for 2 weeks, and the pain from my large anterial ovarian cyst is all but gone! HOWEVER, I am going through one awful digestive ordeal. Gurgly stomach, gas, bowel with undigested bits (gross- sorry), nausea and stomach cramps. Its not constant, and at moments I feel fantastic, but when it hits, it hits hard. Once or twice throughout the day, and I'm losing 2-3 hours of sleep each night. Is this normal?? Help!!

What Julie from Wharton NJ is experiencing is because of iron and Magnesium (Mg) content of blackstrap molasses. Every individual has different dose that would work for them & whenever in little excess, it will cause gargling sounds and lose bowel movements with or without mild cramps. This is because Mg increases gut motility and that's why its used as a treatment for constipation (Milk of Magnesia).
Just cutting down on dose a little will solve this issue as rightfully advised by someone here before.

Cynthia & Joe and anyone else who found their cyst size increased after taking blackstrap molasses (BSM) & ACV, would you kindly share if by any chance you have a concurrent thyroid problem such as low or high thyroid. Also if you are taking any meds and eating too many cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage etc?
I am asking this b'coz female with ovarian cysts often have thyroid problems too. That is the basic reason behind molasses working for ovarian cysts. Beside iron and many minerals, BSM is rich in naturally occurring iodine. Many studies today has proven that ovarian epithelium has receptors for thyroid hormone and ovarian stroma is richest organ in iodine second only to thyroid. That is why in case of iodine deficiency not just thyroid but ovaries are also effected resulting in multiple cysts.
Here are few facts about relationship between thyroid, ovaries & iodine:

Iodine is concentrated at high levels in the ovaries via the NIS symporter.

Iodine deficiency is strongly correlated with ovarian cysts and may also be related to ovarian

  • Flechas states that the greater the iodine deficiency, the more ovarian cysts a woman produces, resulting in the extreme form known as polycystic ovarian disease.
  • Howenstine asserts that Iodine therapy can reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts.
  • Slebodzinski states that iodine concentration in the ovary is higher than in every other organs except the thyroid. The ovarian iodide uptake varies with sexual activities, is enhanced by estrogens and a hypothyroid state and blocked by goitrogens.
  • Escobar investigated the effect of various levels of iodine intake on thyroid hormones in different tissues in the rat. They discovered that, under conditions of iodine deficiency, the concentration of T3 in the ovary was much higher than in the blood or most other tissues.

For someone with medical background or just a curious mind who wants to know more, plz explore these few links:

and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3355884/

I am a researcher myself and would like to know from any of you ladies if you have been diagnosed or have symptoms of any thyroid problems (hypo or hyperthyroidism etc).

To: Rahoz re: Cynthia and Joe's comment

Rahoz, I hope you are still part of this site. I just read your reply of 2014. I have a history of developing ovarian cysts since 1990s. I have, unfortunately, had five ovarian cysts surgically removed over the years. Initially, I was told by my OB/GYN that he thought I might have PCOS but he was not sure. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in the 1990s. I never knew why these cysts developed and grew rapidly. Of course, my doctors' only remedy was surgery. I have always taken Synthyroid for my thyroid condition. I also eat cruciferous vegetables, which I was not aware I should not be eating. I developed Ovarian Cancer too in this huge cyst that I have now.

Rahoz, I would like to take the ACV and molases but I am afraid of my cyst growing and the cancer cells growing because of the sugar in the molases. I want to come up with a plan to prevent my body from developing these cysts.

Do you have any suggestions? Thanks very much for your assistance and I will await your reply.

I'm happy to tell u that blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar really work, I've tried it myself, I had an ovarian cyst in my right ovary, the doctors couldn't help me because I'm pregnant, then I searched the web til I found this site and I tried blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar, (I think the molasses is the secret but...)

Anyway after 3 days of taking 1 t/s of vinegar and 1 of molasses in the morning before breakfast and the same at night before dinner, I felt that my pain reduced to 10%, and then like after 3 weeks I went for another ultra sound and my cyst was gone, the doctor told me I can't see anything for real.

So just trust me and try this, specially if you're pregnant and you're not allowed to take medicines.

Now I'm in my 37 weeks, almost there, plz pray for me.

This mixture of Organic ACV and Blackstrap Molasses should be taken in an 8 ounce glass of water or juice. It does work.

Did you approve this with your doctor first? Also, what size was your cyst. I found out at 5 weeks pregnant that I have a cyst on my right ovary. Waiting for results tomorrow, but I am already looking for remedies.

Would like to ask Kemmy from Nigeria how large was the cyst on her ovary? How many times a day did she drink the cider and molasses, and in what quantities? Was this before meals or after meals? Would appreciate a reply?

Hello Helpneeded from Alexandria, Va... In my experience apple cider vinegar is REALLY Good to take when you are pregnant... When I was pregnant with my son I had really bad morning sickness and ACV helped alot.

I think it's perfectly safe to take ACV while pregnant.

It's not a whole lot different than having dressing on a salad. And since using salad dressing isn't discouraged during pregnancy, I don't see why a couple of tablespoons of ACV per day would hurt anything.

I have been going to so many doctors and paying out the pocket to be told they don't know what's wrong with me. My husband ended up in the hospital so I decided to try one more time and had a CT scan done it turns out I have a 4 centimeter cyst on my left ovary. This runs through all my sisters> I guess I got it late. Well anyway is it possible the cysts caould have been mistaken for something else? Because my doctors thought I was just fat. Would it be possible to sue them for compensastion on all the bull they put me hrough? Now I have to follow up with yet another doctor to find out what we should do next. I am at least relieved to know what had been wrong with me this entire time. Although, I am highly ticked that the doctors were making me pay so much out of pocket because I didn't have insurance. And by out of pocket I mean a couple $$$$thousand $$$$ and all it took was an emergency room visit and to many people asking when was I due because I look like I am 7 months pregnant from the abdominal swelling.

Can get apple cider vinegar in ebay. Also molasses- make sure the molasses is eatable and not the plant fertilizer.

I have been dealing with ovarian cysts for ten years now. I am in terrible pain one day out of the month to the point of total bed rest. Some months I have no pain. I have taken herbs that help. I am curious about this apple cider vinegar and molasses recipe, I have both items in my pantry cupboard and am ready to start mixing them to make my own remedy. My entire right side hurts daily and I am hot all the time. I thought I was going through menopause early but after reading this blog I see it may be the cysts. I had a cyst that was the size of a golf ball pass a few years ago just before surgery. I want to cure this myself if it is possible. L

Apple Cider Vinegar can be bought at vitacost. Com, also Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a very good natural brand that I trust. They also sell lots of other vitamins that are awesome! I Love the Garden of Life vitamins, they even have a prenatal. I have a 5.1 ovarian cyst, but I used the vinegar for some gallstones, and Ialso did a gallstone cleanse at the same time, will continue with 1 teaspoon with a glass of water. Drinking before a meal helps a lot and does not hurt my stomach. Prayers to each for a miracle healing.

Apple Cider Vinegar / Molasses for Ovarian Cysts- No one knows exactly why or how it works, but anecdotal evidence supports the use of apple cider vinegar to help shrink and dissolve ovarian cysts. According to Dr. John Christopher, a potassium deficiency may be the cause of cyst formation, and changing your eating habits to consume more potassium may be helpful. Apple cider vinegar is high in potassium, and this may be one of the reasons it is helpful in the treatment of ovarian cysts. Christopher recommends taking apple cider vinegar along with several other herbs such as burdock root, chaparral, cayenne, yellow dock, mullein and plantain.

The People's Pharmacy Guide to Home and Herbal Remedies also mentions use of apple cider vinegar for the treatment of cysts. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar with 1 tablespoon of black strap molasses and 8 ounces of warm water. Drink one or two glasses daily to help shrink the cyst. It may also help relieve stomach bloating associated with the cyst. Consult a natural health practitioner for additional guidelines concerning the use of apple cider vinegar.

I just read the testimony contributed by kemi from Lagos, Nigeria. I would like to know about the apple cider vineger with warm water. How to get the herbs and the dosage.

I have a 15 year old niece who has been suffering from severe abdominal pains which come off and on and menstrual pains. Ultrasound just revealed that she has a 3.7cm left ovarian mass.

How do I get the apple cider vinegar. The local herb sellers in my environment don't know these herbs. Please help. I leave in Benin City, Nigeria.

For the past 6 years I suffered with irregular painful menstrual periods. At least so I thought were menstrual periods until I saw my ob/gyn and found out I had a cyst the size of a lime. I was horrified. He had me take hormonal treatments(provera tablets) to hopefully shrink my cyst and get me back to normal. It was a waiting game after that. Waiting and waiting, and no luck. My cycles were still irregular, painful, and a mess!

My brother has used home remedies for just about everything. I called him and asked him if he could find something to help me get rid of this cyst I had. So with research he found that apple cider vinegar, unsulphered black strap molasses, and milk would do the trick. I took this remedy for 3 weeks, and thankfully my pain & bleeding have stopped. I have yet to see my ob/gyn in 3 weeks to see where my cyst is (hopefully gone). When I took the 1st mixture I took it at 6pm. By 11pm that same evening, my heavy bleeding and bloating stopped! The next 3 days my bleeding was lighter and lighter till no more. I feel great and I am so happy. I hope to get good news in 3 more weeks when I get my ultrasound. The recommended period to take the mixture was from 6 weeks to 3 months depending on the severity of one's condition. I will send feedback on my situation in 3 weeks. Wish me luck guys! 3x's a day for 6 weeks to 3 months (depending on severity of cyst)

Mix 1 cup of organic milk w/ 1 tbsp of organic unsulphered black strap molasses until well blended
Drink mixture
Drink 1tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar immediately after

Just found your site last night! Hooray!! I went to my doctor a little over a week ago because of terrible persistent pain in my left ovary. He did an ultra sound which showed some cysts. I read here about the apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses remedies, but am not clear on how many times a day you suggest taking it. Could someone please advise? Thanks so much!!

I just bought a bottle of ACV, it said take this 2-3 times a day and drink plenty of water.

If you buy the organic brand Apple Cider Vinegar there is a suggested dosage on the bottle. I don't remember what it said. Sorry

Oh and to Anonymous from somewhere out there, how does one avoid caffeine when its in everything even tea? And I love my cup of tea. Have never had coffee in my life and Im not a big chocolate fan either.

I've bought ACV and take it 2 times a day with warm water. Today is the second day and it's bleeding. I feel pain in my right ovary and I have brown discharge. I don't understand is it normal or not? Maybe somebody knows how it work? Please share with me your experience.

Hi it sounds like the ACV is helping to dissolve the cyst. I would think it will stop soon. Cysts can be caused by excess calcium and a deficiency in iodine. You could take a spoonful of Blackstrap Molasses in water as this is supposed to help cysts heal too.

Hello, I have just started mixing the ACV, the BSM, and the Beet Root powder. I have been taking it for maybe 2 weeks now. I have ovarian cyst and I want another baby soon so im preparing m body now. I went to the obgyn in October. Was told that I had a cyst on my right ovary and was put on bc. I stop taking the bc because when I went back 6 weeks later, the cyst on the right had shrunk but there was a small one on my left ovary now. So I've decided to take the holistic approach. I've been trying the concoction for maybe 2 weeks now, I've felt so much better but I have another Dr. visit on 12/12/16 to get a glimpse at the cyst to see how they're doing and what the odds are for conceiving in the future. I will keep you updated. God Bless!!!
