A Miracle Home Remedy for Fibroids That Works Every Time!

Here's a natural remedy for fibroids that's guaranteed to work fast, along with other highly effective home remedies for reversing uterine fibroids...


QUESTION:

Hi. Love what you guys are doing here. Very insightful and very helpful. However, I must say that I do not see anything concerning fibroids. Do have any information that you can share on how to get rid of fibroids with natural remedies?

Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

Jane


ANSWER:

Hi Jane, and thanks for your question regarding natural remedies for fibroids.

Firstly, for those who don't know, fibroids, or uterine leiomyomas are predominantly non cancerous (benign) tumors of the uterus. They are in fact extremely common with around 3 million women diagnosed in the U.S. every year and 80% of females actually developing them by the age of 50. Fibroids can cause symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding, extended periods, pelvic and rectal pressure and pain, bladder weakening and lower back pain.

Thankfully, natural remedies can help tremendously with uterine fibroids and are definitely a much better and safer option than surgery.

Here's the top 6 you may want to consider...


#1. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Black Strap Molasses: This should certainly be your first remedy of choice for shrinking fibroids. Uterine fibroids only occur and grow in an acidic environment. So if you have fibroids, your body's pH level will be low (acidic) which is definitely not what you want. Apple cider vinegar and black strap molasses boost your pH level and make the body alkaline (opposite to acidic). In an alkaline environment, fibroids begin shrinking immediately. As a side benefit, the ACV helps with brown fat metabolism, so if you're overweight or suffering from cellulite, this will help with these problems as well. In addition, the black strap molasses is rich in iron, calcium, magnesium, boron, B6 and selenium, which are all vital nutrients for women's health.

So here's what you do...

Purchase some organic apple cider vinegar containing the "mother" apple. Make sure that what you buy still contains the mother as no other ACV's will work. Bragg's apple cider vinegar is the best for this. Also purchase some organic black strap molasses. Once again, this must be organic and it must be "black strap". No other molasses will work. Here's some reputable brands if you're interested... Organic Black Strap Molasses.

Mix a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a tablespoon of black strap molasses in a glass of warm filtered water (it needs to be warm enough to dissolve the molasses). Drink this concoction 2-3 times a day on an empty stomach. (First thing in the morning and last thing at night are two of the best times). Or if you like, you can have the ACV in a shooter glass and the molasses straight off the spoon. It doesn't really matter how you do it as long as you have them every day!

Now, the most important part to this remedy is the time frame you take it for because this is where many women get mixed up. This is not a "prescription" remedy, meaning you don't just take it for a few weeks or months then stop. You take it for the rest of your life! You don't just want to get rid of your fibroids right now, you want to keep them away for good. That's what this remedy will do! You can back off on the dosage once your fibroids have shrunk and your symptoms have disappeared if you like, but don't stop with it altogether or those fibroids will slowly start to grow again.


#2. Baking Soda: Whereas the first remedy listed here is a permanent (rest of your life) protocol, this one is only temporary. The baking soda is a very powerful pH booster, so it alkalizes the body very quickly. It basically gives you an "alkaline" shot (remember, fibroids shrink in an alkaline environment) which is important at the beginning when you're trying to reverse the growth of fibroids.

So what you do is mix a teaspoon of baking soda (Bob's Best is the best!) in a glass of filtered water and scull it down. Do this once daily after you've eaten. We do admit the baking soda doesn't taste the best, which is why you'll probably need to dring it in one hit. However, you only need to do this for two weeks so it's not so bad.


#3. Lugol's Iodine: Both Dr David Brownstein and Dr Marcus Sircus recommend iodine for shrinking fibroids of the breast, uterus and ovaries. Iodine therapy (painting the uterus with iodine) was once the standard treatment in conventional medicine for reversing severe uterine fibroids. Studies have also shown that liquid iodine will shrink fibrocystic breast disease.

Lugol's liquid iodine is definitely the best and most effective iodine for reversing fibroids. In his book "Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It," Dr David Brownstein recommends you take 100mg's (16 drops) of the 5% Lugol's iodine solution to reverse fibroids. This should be done for 6-8 weeks before backing off to a dosage of 25-50mg's (4-8 drops) per day. You then continue with this amount indefinitely. Just make sure you purchase the 5% solution and not the 2%. Here's what it looks like... Lugol's 5% liquid Iodine.


#4. Milk Thistle and Maca Root: The estrogen hormone contributes to fibroids by stimulating unwanted cell growth. But both milk thistle and maca root work to metabolize and get rid of excess estrogen, which in turn helps to shrink uterine fibroids.

You can buy both of these herbs from any good health food store or online. Just make sure the maca is genuine maca root that comes from the Peruvian mountains.


#5. Matcha Green Tea: Green tea contains some very powerful antioxidants, particularly the catachin antioxidants, which have been found to inhibit and even shrink fibroid cells. Green tea is also a great anti-inflammatory and studies have shown it helps to reduce fibroid symptoms. Matcha green tea is by far the best and contains 137 times more catachins than regular green tea. For best results, be sure to drink 3-4 cups a day.


#6. Herbs: Certain herbs are also terrific for helping to shrink fibroids and reducing the symptoms. Garlic, cayenne pepper, ginger, turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon and dandelion are all powerful anti-inflammatories and contain some strong antioxidants. Ginger and cayenne pepper in particular help with excessive menstrual flow and menstrual cramps, so if you suffer with these make sure you include these two herbs and spices in your diet as much as you can.


And finally, don't forget to eat well. Plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are the key. And be sure to stay well clear of all refined and processed foods and drinks. These foods mess with your hormones something chronic and will do nothing to help with your fibroids or their accompanying symptoms.


So hopefully these tips and remedies help you out Jane.


Good luck and all the best to you!

Large Fibroids in Uterus
by: Wendy

Thank you so much for the info you posted above on the top 6 things to do for Fibroids. I am going to buy all the stuff today and start this program. I have one Fibroid the size of a baseball and the other the size of a golf ball bleeding and giving me a lot pain, especially in the pelvis. I am taking high doses of DMG and have felt better and will continue to keep taking this. DMG shrinks cysts too. I have 2 cysts on my ovaries and I am prone to them on my feet too. The DMG shrunk the cysts on my feet and I am waiting to go back to my Gyno to see if it's shrunk the cysts on my ovaries too.
Thank you again for this information. I would love to hear from anyone else who has tried these top 6 and see how long before they saw results. I will write back with my results from my next ultrasound. Good luck everyone.

Hi Wendy. Yes DMG (dimethyl glycine) is also very good for reversing fibroids and cysts, so supplementing with this nutrient is a good idea. And don't forget that stress and coffee exacerbate fibroid and cyst growth too so try and keep both of these to a minimum as well!

All the best.

Cysts GONE! - Update
by: Wendy

Hi Troy.
Thanks for writing back. Appreciate the advice.
I went to my Gyno for an ultrasound on Monday and both cysts are gone from my ovaries!!!
The large fibroid also shrunk a bit (7.9 now 7.6).
So I am happy to report this!
I am going to start my iodine tomorrow along with all the great advice listed here. I've got Matcha green tea and baking soda too and apple cider vinegar and turmeric pills.
Do I just take the drops directly in the mouth or do I mix them with water?
16 drops to start right?
I'll keep updating. Thank you... wishing everyone healthy days.

That's great news Wendy! With the 5% liquid iodine, you should start with a dosage of 4 drops per day for a week then 8 drops per day for another week. After this, work up to the 16 drops each day for a period of 6-8 weeks before backing off to the 8 drops daily, and then the 4 drops per day. You should then stay on this amount permanently for overall good health. The best way to have the liquid iodine is mixed in a glass of water and the dosages split up throughout the day - 3 times per day on an empty stomach would be the ideal. And remember, with the baking soda you only have it for two weeks.

All the best!

Fibroids
by: Lilly

I have a huge fibroid subserosal that measures 16cm×9cm. I've had it for 6 years now and am trying to find a cure and way to shrink it. I went to a holistic doctor, which my insurance doesn't cover and is really expensive, and the herbs and supplements given to me are not working at all. I feel hopeless, but this cure seems cheap and hopefully comes with no side effects. I also have high blood pressure. Does anyone know if these remedies are contraindicated for HBP? Thanks.
Lilly


Oct 03, 2016

by: Troy (Admin)

Hi Lilly. If you have HBP then the only one you would need to precede with caution with would be the baking soda. However, as long as you take it in combination with the apple cider vinegar you'll be perfectly okay (ACV and baking soda actually help to lower blood pressure when taken together... Natural Remedy for High Blood Pressure). You also only take the baking soda for two weeks anyway just to boost your body's pH level so you'll be fine. All of the other herbs and supplements are 100% safe as long as you stick to using them as directed.

Good luck and all the best!

Dosage for kids
by: Xyz, California

Hi Troy
Thank you for the wonderful post! I have fibroids and am going to follow your instructions ASAP. I have heard fibroids are hereditary and I have 2 girls, one 11 and another one 13. Can you give me some useful suggestions on how to prevent fibroids for them and keep them healthy?
Is it okay for them to take the ACV at least once a week, or can you let me know the dosage for their age? Thanks a lot!
God bless you

Hi Xyz. Apple cider vinegar is excellent for young growing girls and will help immensely with their overall health, along with preventing fibroids. Black strap molasses or raw honey are also terrific and are both rich in essential nutrients. The ACV and black strap molasses/honey should be taken every day for best results. 1-2 tablespoons of the ACV and 1-2 tablespoons of molasses or honey is perfect. The hardest part can be getting them to drink it. Here's a few handy recipes that can make it much easier... 5 Recipes to Get Your Daily Dose of Apple Cider Vinegar.

I would also recommend lots of probiotics, particularly for young girls going through/about to go through puberty. Boosting their good gut bacteria will do wonders for balancing out all those hormonal changes that are going to occur. A good probiotic supplement, along with plenty of probiotic rich foods such as kombucha, yogurt, etc, will work a treat... Cultures for Health.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you!

Dosage
by: Xyz

Hi Troy,
Thank you for your reply about the dosage for my kids. I am already giving ACV to My kids everyday!
This question is about me... when we take the baking soda for 2 weeks, do we still take the ACV everyday as usual? I am already taking it everyday!!!! My next concern is once the 2 weeks of baking soda intake is over, can I take it again if the fibroid is still there? Or just stop after 2 weeks? Please let me know. Thank you for helping out.

Oct 10, 2016
Reply
by: Troy

The ACV and molasses are taken every day indefinitely. Do not stop with these... ever!! The baking soda is taken for two weeks, however, you can continue with this for up to 4 weeks before dropping it. Don't go beyond 4 weeks or you may end up with alkalosis (too much alkalinity). If you find your fibroids have not completely shrunk after a further 6 weeks, you can go back on the baking soda for another 2-4 weeks. This will be all that you'll need and your fibriods should be gone by this time.

Hope this helps.

All the best.

Oct 17, 2016
Dosage
by: Xyz

Hi Troy,
Sorry to bother you again! This is again about the dosages. For balanced pH levels and formation of alkaline in body, ACV is the best solution... I clearly understand that! Also, I started giving my girls 1 tbsp of ACV and 1 tbsp of Black strap molasses everyday. I am having the same 2 times a day. Now my concern is if we are taking this on a daily basis for the rest of our life, will this lead to increased levels of alkalinity and cause any side effects? Or because I have fibroids, do I need to take this my entire life and do my kids need to stop at any point?
Thank you for all your help! God bless!

Using baking soda to treat my fibriods
by: Eve

I had a myomectomy but now my fibroids are coming back again. I still want to have children. I am happy to have come across this site and hope this is going to help me. I would also like to confirm whether bicarbonate of soda is the same as baking soda?

I've been highly stressed and I have learned that stress also contributes to the growth of fibriods. I have change my diet, though it wasn't easy. I am no longer eating meat, only fish. I would also like to know whether eating brown bread is good for me or not?

Oct 21, 2016
Reply for Eve
by: Troy

Yes, bi carb of soda is the same as baking soda. Just remember though, the baking soda is only one remedy. You must utilize all 6 recommendations to successfully shrink your fibroids (and shrink them for good). For the foods you need to be eating... fresh fruits, vegetables nuts and seeds are crucial. Breads of any sort are not good and should be avoided.

Taking apple cider vinegar every day for the rest of your life will cause absolutely ZERO negative side effects, only positive effects! It would be no different to you eating, say, 6 organically grown apples every day. Organic ACV is just crushed fermented apple juice. And there is no danger of your body becoming too alkaline... none at all. The ACV and molasses will only keep your pH slightly alkaline, which is perfect. You should actually be more concerned (as should every person) with your body becoming acidic. This is a far more dangerous and deadly problem. I've been taking ACV for over 20 years now and would never be without it!

Remember also... ACV was Hippocrates all-time favorite food. :)

How do I know if its effective?
by: Richie

I am really happy for what is going on here. Kudos to the admin of this site. My question is can I use any other black strap molasses hence I was unable to see the recommended brands in the grocery stores around my area. What I saw was black treacle. Is this okay for use? Secondly, at what months do I need to go for an ultrasound to see if the remedy is effective. Thanks.

Turmeric and Green Tea
by: Amanda

Should I stop taking turmeric and green tea when I start using the apple cider vinegar and black strap molasses?

Oct 24, 2016
Reply for Richie
by: Troy

Hi Richie. No the black strap molasses MUST be organic black strap molasses. This is the only type you should take. You may have to order it online or find a health food store. Grocery stores do not normally stock it. As far as having an ultrasound? After 6 months of following this protocol your fibroids should either be completely gone or barely visible, so having an ultrasound after this period would be a good decision.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

No! You should definitely continue with the tumeric and green tea. They all work extremely well together and in synergy with each other. :)

Ultrasound and cell phone usage
by: Eve

Hello, I just have a concern about having another ultrasound after six months? You said in one of the comments below that if you find your fibroids have not completely shrunk after a further 6 weeks, you can go back on the baking soda for another 2-4 weeks. This will be all that you'll need and your fibriods should be gone by this time?

I would also like to know whether using cell phones have any effects or contribute to this problem? Every time I use my cell phone I feel something in my womb. Can this cause a problem?

I fell so blessed to be part of this blog.
Thank you



Oct 28, 2016

by: Troy

Hi Eve. Firstly, you don't need to wait 6 months to have another ultrasound. This is only a guideline. However, waiting 6 months gives these remedies (and your body) plenty of time to shrink your fibroids. Of course, for peace of mind you can certainly go for an ultrasound earlier to see if your fibroids are shrinking.

In regards to cell phones causing fibroids or other female health problems? Don't know about that one. No studies so far have shown anything towards this, only in regards to the possible development of brain cancer.

Hope this helps.

All the best.

I can touch the fibroid?
by: Amanda

I am very glad to come across this blog. God bless the admin. Firstly, I am the type of person that cannot do without bread. I've stopped eating all other junk food as well as drinking soft drinks, but is there a type of bread that I can eat? Secondly, I've been taking tumeric for 6 months now and I've also added the ACV, Molasses & baking soda. I've been doing this for two weeks now but whenever I press on my stomach I feel the fibroid still hardened at my lower abdomen. My question is how do I know if it is actually shrinking? I'm scared of going to the hospital to hear the same news that it is still there. Help!

Hi Amanda. Firstly, you can use Ezekiel bread as a substitute for conventional bread... Ezekiel Bread Recipe - Dr Axe. Secondly, do you actually have a fibroid? Or is it a cyst or a tumor? EACH ARE DIFFERENT. You need to go back to your physician A.S.A.P and get a confirmed diagnosis. This is crucial so don't delay.

Hope this helps.

Best regards.

The scan confirms fibroids
by: Amanda

Still thanking you for the great job. Yes I was diagnosed in June this year and the result confirmed I had four multiple myoma measured in " mm". This prompted my research on how to get rid of it. This is my first time of hearing about Ezekiel bread. Is it the same thing as wheat bread?

More grace.

Reply to Amanda
by: Troy

Yes, ezekiel bread is a form of wheat bread - a healthy form. With the above remedies, try and include the Lugol's iodine as well. It's very powerful for shrinking fibroids. It will usually take 4-6 weeks for your fibroids to shrink, sometimes longer depending on the size and how many you have (up to 6 months if you have multiple or large fibroids).

Hope this helps.

All the best to you!

7 weeks taking ACV and black strap molasses
by: Cassie

Hi Troy. Thank you for your advice on this topic. I have several fibroids of different types, some on top of my uterus, others inside - largest about 5 cm as of August 2015. I've taken 2 tbs of black strap molasses and ACV everyday since September 10. My period in October was much lighter, but continued to spot for 8 days. I have been taking 4 oz of 5 percent iodine for one month. I'll up that to 16 oz. Also taking DIM, calcium d-glucarate, and Fibrovera AHS, and a tincture from my naturopath. Naturopath prescribed calcium and Fivrovera, but I started with the black strap molasses and ACV. I don't have heavy bleeding but feeling of pressure in uterine area. Question: Given I have several fibroids, some embedded in my uterus, how long might the ACV & BSM take to kick in? I realize this is a long process. Thanks so much!

Hello! So happy to have come across this. I just got married and was diagnosed with fibroids and would like to know if the listed protocol has any side effects for someone that is trying to conceive. And if after shrinking the fibroid(s), would I still be able to get pregnant and continue taking it during my pregnancy? Does it have any side effects for a growing fetus? Thanks.

Nov 09, 2016
Reply to Sandra
by: Troy

All of these recommendations are safe to have when trying to conceive. In fact, the ACV, black strap molasses and Lugol's iodine will actually help with a healthier pregnancy! The baking soda is only taken for two weeks so this wont be a problem either. With the Lugol's iodine, drop the maintenance dose to two liquid drops per day instead of the 4-6 drops when you do become pregnant. A lower dosage is better in this scenario.

As always, you should consult your health care professional first before following any nutritional advice (we are required by law to put this in).

All the best to you Sandy and good luck with your pregnancy!

Ultrasound when?
by: Xyz

Hi Troy,
Thank you so much for guiding us here. You are doing a noble job by helping us! I have/had a fibroid around 11 cm big. You earlier told me about baking soda, saying you can take this for 2 to 4 weeks, but no more than that. I took the baking soda for 3 weeks continuously and I won't take anymore, as per your advice. My question is... when will the fibroids shrink and when can I go for an ultrasound? I am also taking organic black strap molasses with ACV 2 times everyday. It's been 3 weeks and I can see lots of differences in myself. I am active and have even lost a few pounds!
Thank you 😊

Hi Cassie. It may take up to 6 months for your fibroid(s) to completely disappear and your hormones to return to normal. What you are currently doing is good. Just remember that your diet and what you eat is extremely important as well. And don't forget to include lots of herbs and green tea!

Hope this helps.

All the best to you. :)

by: Troy

You're very welcome Xyz. What you are doing is excellent. Don't forget about the other recommendations also.

Even though most fibriods will shrink within a 6 week period, it can, in some instances, take up to 6 months to fully shrink multiple fibriods. It can also take up to 6 months to completely re-balance your hormones (which is crucial). Having an ultrasound after 3 months would give you a very good indication on whether your fibriods have either shrunk or are shrinking. Most times you can even feel it in yourself that your body and hormones are beginning to return to normal. This is a good indication that the remedies are beginning to take effect.

Hope this helps you.

And keep doing what you're doing!

All the best. :)

Fibroids
by: Cassie

Troy, thanks for your reply. My concern is that the abdominal pressure and pain are more now than 2 months ago. So I'm wondering if the fibroids are growing or if my body is trying to eliminate them. I'm 51 years old and still have a period. I read somewhere that as menopause comes on, more estrogen is produced so maybe that's what is making them so difficult to deal with now.

Nov 18, 2016

Yes, more estrogen produced can certainly make fibroids grow. Have you read our article on hot flashes (flushes) and night sweats/menopause? Boron (borax), magnesium and Maca are vital for hormonal balance, especially if you're going through menopause. Have a read of that article here...

Thank you for the wonderful recommendations in this blog and for the contributions made by the bloggers. I have uterine fibroids, five I was told by my Dr in fact. Recently at my six month follow up visit the ultrasound showed that (12) small ones had popped up. What a shocker that was for me. I was happy to read about the recommendations given, and I have started taking at least four of the six. I'm about three months in. I'm currently taking the blackstrap molasses, ginger turmeric, maca supplement, Lugol's iodine 2% and moringa. I'm hoping for positive results at the next ultrasound. What do u think contributed to the growth of the additional fibroids. Thank u for the info.

The growth of fibroids depends on many different factors. Your age and hormone levels is a big one. Just make sure you take the apple cider vinegar with the black strap molasses as the two work together. This is crucial. With the iodine, because you are taking the 2% solution you will need more so be sure to double the recommended dosages that are listed for the 5% solution.

All the best!

Maca root powder and fibroids

Hi there, I'm interested in taking maca as I love the taste and the increased energy it gives me, however, there is so much conflicting information on the internet about maca and fibroids. It's very confusing indeed. Can you please set the record straight? Thank you :)

Need to know pls
by: Jummybaby

Hi dear, I need to know if I take baking soda and apple cider vinegar together is this ok? One is alkaline and the other is acidic? I have fibroids and you said fibroids shrink in an alkaline environment. Also, the molasses is purely sugar and I am a diabetic, so isn't it harmful for my health. Pls your reply is needed urgently.
Thanks Jummybaby

Nov 30, 2016
Reply to Jummybaby
by: Troy

Hi Jummybaby. Firstly, the ACV and baking soda taken together are perfectly safe as they balance each other out and in turn balance your acid/alkaline base. Remember, the baking soda is only taken for two weeks. And while it's true that the apple cider vinegar is acidic, once it enters the body it actually becomes alkaline. A common misconception is that ACV stays acidic, even when in the gut. This is totally false, which is why when you just drink the ACV on its own, your pH level rises (not falls) and your body still becomes alkaline.

In regards to the black strap molasses, yes it contains sugar, but it has a low glycemic index so its slow releasing. It will actually help to stabilize your blood sugar levels. The truth is, black strap molasses is beneficial for diabetics, not harmful... Benefits of Black Strap Molasses - Dr Josh Axe.

I also recommend you have a read of our article on natural remedies and treatments for diabetes for more information on ways to control your diabetes naturally... Natural Diabetes Treatment.

Eating estrogen and phytoestrogen rich foods are very helpful when trying to conceive. The best ones are... dried fruits, flax seeds, sesame seeds, chickpeas, beans, peas, tempeh, alfalfa sprouts, brand cereals, tofu, soy milk and soya beans.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Hi Sarah Jane. Fibroids are particularly prone to grow when hormone levels are high - especially when estrogen levels are elevated - which why they grow rapidly during pregnancy and shrink once a woman reaches menopause (and hormone levels drop). Maca is terrific for levelling out and normalizing hormone levels, including estrogen and progesterone levels. There is no harm in taking maca for fibroids. In fact, it's a common remedy prescribed by Naturopathic physicians for shrinking fibroids. Used in conjunction with green tea or Essiac tea, it's even more effective. One supplier of maca powder had this to say...

"In our 15 years of experience at whole world botanicals with supplying the finest quality of maca root powder and capsules to our customers in the U.S., we have never had a customer report that royal maca had made her fibroids grow larger. On the contrary, we often receive reports that the fibroids have shrunk or disappeared completely."

The websites that poo poo maca are usually the medical websites. The sad fact is most would recommend you take a harmful pharmaceutical for your "womanly problems" rather than use something natural that comes with no side effects.

Maca is perfectly okay for overall health AND for shrinking fibroids. Just make sure you purchase good quality maca and not the cheaper varieties and you'll be fine.

Hope this helps you Sarah Jane.

Good luck and all the best to you!
