If you’ve been reading my posts then you know my situation. I have large fibroids and I am desperately trying to get rid of them or at least shrink them using exercise and natural remedies. I’ve tried the apple cider vinegar for a couple of months and concluded it doesn’t really work per se; but I’m giving it another try just to be sure. I started drinking it again November 16th and will try to stick with it until January 16th then make a final decision about it at that time.
In the meantime I am also trying the blackstrap molasses. Today is my first day starting the blackstrap molasses trial so I am in no position to answer the question of whether or not you can get rid of fibroids drinking it. I just received my bottle of Tree of Life blackstrap molasses via UPS a short while ago. I made a cup of tea with 1 tbsp of blackstrap molasses and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. I have to confess it tastes utterly and completely horrid. I’m struggling to get it down. The blackstrap molasses is very strong and overpowering. You’d never know there was any apple cider vinegar in the mixture and apple cider vinegar is pretty strong by itself. The blackstrap molasses tastes downright awful; and on further research I am reading it isn’t healthy either. At least with my vinegar tea I am able to keep it sugar free and calorie free; but with the blackstrap molasses 1 tbsp contains 45 calories, 8 grams of sugar, 11 grams of carbohydrates.
If I stick with it I will only be drinking this concoction once per day; and maybe I will need to reduce the amount of molasses to half of a tablespoon. I definitely want to do more research on it because if it’s going to end up being that it does nothing to help with the fibroids, I don’t want it thwarting my efforts at getting healthier on top of being a waste.
If anyone has suggestions for more palatable ways to use this blackstrap molasses or knows anything about blackstrap molasses and if it is generally very bad for health, please share.
I will update again once I have a better idea of whether blackstrap molasses is helping in any way to shrink my fibroids.
