Molasses and Iodine

Posted by PD (HI) on 05/31/2007

HI, I would like to know more about "black strap molasses:. I have several small cysts and uterine fibroids. The doctor said that they are peanut size and should take aleve for the pain. I would like to get rid of them so badly as they are very painful. Please any suggestions on the black strap molasses from earth clinic. I need a number to order.

Usually fibroids would be most helped by taking some iodine supplements in form of kelp, some magnesium and getting the body to be alkaline. Black strap molasses might help, but fibroids are formed whenever the body encounters some fungus, or mycoplasma, or that the blood serum has excessive calcium and blocks it off by forming fibroids to protect them for invading in the blood. Therefore 8 teaspoon of lime juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 glass of water, taken twice a day should raise the pH, lower the blood calcium to normal, raise the alkalinity, increase the oxygen, increase the immune system and lower any additional fibroid formation. Kelp and iodine supplements, such as colorless iodine usually dissolves waxy substances inside the body which prevents or may reduce formation of fibroids. Sometimes garlic helps too. Blackstrap molasses does not directly deal with the problem and earthclinic don't sell anything, sorry.

I have read alot about fibroids, looking for a way to treat mine without surgery, and found out that estrogen feeds fibroids. Using herbs that flush extra estrogens from the body is a good way to shirnk fibroids. Chaste Tree (also called Vitex)controls heavy bleeding, Red Raspberry also controls heavy bleeding, Mother wart relaxes the uterous, Siberian Ginsing reduces clotting,Red Clover is an anti tumor herb. Also Shepard's Purse is an herb that comes in a liquid form with a tiny dropper or in tea form. It stops heavy bleeding and clotting and relieves cramping. Shepards Purse has worked very well for my symptoms along with Vitex and Estroblend with black cohosh in it. I buy that at Wal-mart. The other herbs I buy at our health food store.

After reading the book called Fibroids-The Complete Guide to Taking Charge Of Your Physical, Emotional and Sexual Well-being, I discovered Vitex (also known as Chaste Tree) and Dong Quai, Blue and Black Cohosh, Licorice herb and Motherwort are NOT GOOD to take if you have fibroids. After finding that out I am taking Yarrow herb to shrink fiboids and stop cramping and heavy bleeding. So far it has been working for me (at least with the cramping and heavy bleeding). Sherpard's Purse is GREAT and fast acting if you are suffering from heavy bleeding and painful cramping. I keep a bottle on hand. I am also trying BSM and also Apple Cider Vinegar. I just recently read this book and I want to update the information I left on your site.
