As I mentioned previously I have been trying the apple cider vinegar remedy for fibroids more out of desperation than because I believe it can actually work to shrink my fibroids. I have been drinking apple cider vinegar for about 2 months now. I first started with regular White House apple cider vinegar. I drank 2 tablespoons with one-quarter teaspoon of baking soda straight, no water to dilute. It was horrible tasting but I stuck with it for a few weeks. Once it ran out I purchased a 32-ounce bottle of Bragg Organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. I decided to leave off the baking soda and make a tea concoction with the vinegar and some other ingredients instead. I drank this tea every morning until I finished the 32 ounce bottle of vinegar.
In addition to drinking this vinegar tea concoction I also started working out more frequently focusing on kick boxing and yoga. I cannot say if the vinegar is actually working to shrink my fibroids as I haven’t gone to get them checked and will not have an appointment with the doctor until November. However while my stomach is still protruding it is definitely flatter. I did start out with fibroids large enough to make me look like I was in my third trimester of pregnancy so I don’t expect that two months of trying the apple cider vinegar fibroid remedy is going to give me back my flat stomach, but I will be sticking with the vinegar tea recipe at least until my next doctor’s visit and I will be continuing with regular yoga and kick boxing and documenting my progress.
I have a long way to go and I don’t have any idea if this is going to work. Can you shrink fibroids naturally? I don’t know? Can apple cider vinegar shrink fibroids? Ordinarily I would laugh at the idea. It seems silly. It sounds silly. It probably is silly but I don’t have $10,000 for a hysterectomy. I don’t have health insurance. I don’t have any sensible ways of getting rid of my fibroids so I am going to try all the silly insensible ways I read about and if they don’t work, well then they don’t work and you can call me a fool for trying. In the meantime, my vinegar tea concoction is rather palatable and something is increasing my energy and allowing me to get through that hour of kick boxing and even enjoy it. My body is looking and feeling much better than it has in a while even with my fibroid tummy; and some of the more serious symptoms that had resulted in the doctor insisting I needed the hysterectomy asap back in December 2010 have gone. I will continue to update for anyone in a similar situation who might be interested in finding out if this thing works for me or not.
