When the body is sufficiently alkalized, the serum calcium normalizes, causing a reduction in cysts and fibroids. Fibroids are a bit tough since the calcium goes deeper than a cysts and will take some time, sometimes with iodine foot painting now and then might be helpful, such as once a week. Normally cysts takes about a month to reduce or in some cases be gone, as the blood will clear up the excess tissue calcium, thus reducing the cysts. Ovaries and menses can only function perfectly whenever the excess calcium in tissues and glandular functions are reduced.

This can be done by getting the proper alkalization so that glandular functions can function normally, and hence normal menses, as well as normal pregnancy, without the blocked fallopian and uterus problem. Some women sadly can't get pregnant because of block fallopian tubes which can be due to fibroids or somes cysts and the ACV and baking soda may help reduce this blockages, or even a lemon and baking soda remedy will also get similar results.

While the lemon (lime) is more effective on alkalizing and potassium, the ACV is more effective on the body's metabolic rate, and hence some reduce weight is experienced. It doesn't require rocket science to realize all this. Only a good understanding of normal body functions. Ideally the ACV and baking soda is taken 3 times a day, but some people find it more convenient to do it 2 times a day because of the heavy work schedules, or other factors.

Could you tell me what how much cider vinegar and bread soda to use? Also, I am a bit confused because many posts mention ACV and molassess instead of baking soda, Which combination is best for getting rid of fibroids? Many thanks, Mary

EC: To date, we have no feedback from our readers re: Ted's remedies for fibroids. Readers are rather reporting good results from ACV and molasses, 2 popular remedies on the site.

First THANK YOU Ted for sharing your knowledge, it is greatly appreciated. I was diagnosed with one large (13cm) fibroid Nov 14, 2008. I totally agree that alkalinity is the way to cure dis-ease within the body. Oxygen is very very important -cancer and disease can NOT live in a body that has proper oxygen.

I know this is scary having something foreign living in our bodies but getting stressed over this will not help it will make things worst. So the first thing to do is take a Huge deep breath and focus on what we CAN do. And it is important to realize that something that took months or years to grow is NOT going to go away by taking something for a week or two.I was told my only option was a full hysterectomy, I am 41 and haven't had children. I totally believe in getting a 2nd or more opinions. (Unless your life is in danger)
Don't be "scared" into getting a hysterectomy it is a major invasive surgery. For some it is the only answer. I decided to seek alternative medicine, focusing more on the mind/body connection. Herbs,Yoga and Meditation can do wonders.....

I believe by cleaning up your diet and exercising we can get a grip on our situation (I am a Certified Wellness/Physical Fitness Specialist and a Personal Trainer). Eliminating as much stress as possible is a necessity. My tumor was found after one of the most stressful times of my life. So it is crucial to evaluate where you are and how you got there. Do you smoke, drink, eat junk all day? I know from personal experience that alcohol can wreck havoc on your system.

Using the vingar and molasses will help IF you stick to it and make it a priority. And yes cayenne pepper does stop bleeding BUT you need to take large amounts which you can get in capsule form, Native Americans have used it for centuries. Also castor oil packs are great. I use a heating pad for cramps.

It is unfortunate that there is so much mis-information out there....But I've believed since day one that having a hysterectomy is not something I want to do. So I will continue to search, pray and follow my intution that there is another way. To all my Fibroid Sisters I wish you all Wellness and Health :) Much Love ~ Christina

Re: Nichole's suggestion. My body does NOT do well without meat. I can do without dairy but I get sluggish, both physically and mentally, when I don't eat any meat or fish. But eating whole, natural, organic foods is crucial. And if a fibroid indicates an overabundance of estrogen, then stay away from estrogen producing foods like soy. Just my experience is all. . . .

I agree with Tanya, Nichole's suggestion is good, but not everyone has the access or the money for those choices. Also, everyone's body is different. I tried a Vegan diet and it made me depressed with anxiety and insomnia. I put meat back in my diet and I am much better. Dairy is actually not good for most people (especially those with fibroid tumors) and the Lactose causes the mucus in your body to thicken and your membranes to swell. If you stop eating dairy and substitute coconut/almond/rice milk instead you will notice a significant reduction in sinus allergies and colds. Choose organic whenever possible. Minimize the canned food. There is range-fed beef in stores which is good. Most of the meat in the stores is from animals that have been fed steroids and that is the main thing that is bad for you. Also, there is a lot of Iron in red meat. Eat salmon or other fish which are high in the Omega 3 oils. I read that Flax seed is very good for reducing the estrogen level and therefore good for reducing an estrogen eating fibroid and they are also high in Omega 3 as well. You can purchase flax seed meal at any natural food store or natural food section in a regular grocery store. Mix a tablespoon in juice 3 times a day before meals. The blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar are also excellent choices. Make sure you take plenty of iron, magnesium and B-Complex. Multivitamins are also necessary. Plenty of exercise and time out for yourself is a must. I have three fibroids growing now after have three removed one year earlier. Thanks for all the tips and I am right there with you.

I have a fibroid that has been bothering me. I also got sick w/allergies. I have never had allergies before. I was so full of fluid in my throat and even in my face. It took about 6-8 weeks to get rid of it. So reading your comments, are fibroids and allergies connected? Asking, as I would not have ever come to that conclusion. Thanks

A year ago during a check up my Doctor was concerned about the size of my uterus. He thought it was fibroids and recommended I see my GYN Doctor. My GYN Doctor agreed that my uterus was extremely large and sent me for a sonogram. I was told my uterus was as large as if I was five/six months pregnant. I did research and saw this site which recommended ACV. I tried taking it but it made me feel sick. I have never been able to digest vinegar well even when it was used to prepare food.

A family friend told my Mom about Chickweed Tea. She had drank it a few times a day over a long period of time and it shrank her fibroids. I starting drinking it but didn't like the taste it wasn't too bad but I starting taking the pills instead of drinking the tea. It has been just about a year later and I just saw my GYN Doctor who was shocked to see how much smaller my uterus had become. I am convinced it was the Chickweed pills. You can get the pills or the tea at the health food stores and vitamin stores. I had also lost 19 pounds since the last time visiting the Doctor and the family friend said it is good for losing weight also. I hope info helps anyone who cannot take the ACV like me.

I followed the Vinegar and baking soda for just a day and the my stomach could not take it. It was too acidic for me. I understand the concept of alkalizing the body to deal with fibroids, etc, but then ACV is acidic, not alkaline (unless I am mistaken). Any explanation? After taking this, I have been having burning pain in my stomach that wakes me up in the night (its really bad in the night) and my physician tells me its because my stomach has become too acidic. Maalox, warm water and not having any acidic food is helping me a bit - I am hoping this goes away. In future I would just use tums to get my body alkaline to deal with fibroids.

Santi by adding the baking soda to the ACV you were making the ACV too alkaline. The stomach acid is The normal pH range for stomach acid is between 1.5 and 3.5. ACV has a pH of about 5 which is less acidic that stomach acid. By adding the baking soda you are further making the stomach acid less acidic. You probably had the pain because your stomach was too alkaline not too acidic and could not digest your food.

Debbie, thanks for the explanation - so based on what you're saying, the ACV actually makes the stomach less acidic (as it has a lesser PH than the regular stomach acid). It does make sense except for the fact that the only thing that stopped the burning in my stomach was Maalox (which is very alkaline). So I'm kind of still confused...

I was diagnosed with a 1cm uterine fybroid. This is new to me. I've had terrible pain in my pelvic area and felt very sick recently and even went to the emergency room. I'm not bleeding any more than a normal period, just feeling uncomfortable pain. Do you think this formula might help me with the pain?

Dear Ted

I find several of your responses interesting in relation to fibroid. My fibroids grew from 4cm to 6.9cm in 2 years and I have polyps.

I took a lot of supplements including multivitamins, NAC, Vitex. I got serious constipation; I think I also react to the capsule casing. So I stopped taking them

I read an article by Andreas Moritz. He mentioned Seaprose S was good but has been removed from the market since big pharma realized it totally got rid of fibroids by denaturing the protective casing then dissolving the protein

You seem to indicate that that protective casing can be problematic. Does ACV and water remove this casing and cause the fibroid to shrink
