I started using apple cider vinegar to try to get rid of my fibroids back in June 2011. I’ve added blackstrap molasses since November 2011. I’ve been documenting my progress with trying to get rid of my fibroids. You can refer to the link at bottom of this to access my updates. This is my latest update. Below is the latest photo showing my progress between June and December 31 2011.
I missed my November 2011 appointment at the women’s clinic so I haven’t really gotten any medical feedback on whether or not the fibroids have in fact shrunken. My stomach still protrudes but it is considerably flatter as you can see if you compare the June 26, 2011 picture to the December 31, 2011 picture (you can click on the picture to make it bigger).
Although it’s possible dropping some of the extra weight I was carrying has more to do with the visible improvements than the fibroids actually shrinking, I want to believe the fibroids are in fact shrinking. What I can’t be sure of is what’s actually responsible.
I’ve been working out much harder and more frequently in the last few months doing core focused work. The improvement in the appearance of my stomach could be due to the ballet, the power yoga and the abs work I’ve been doing with weights.
I do have to say that since I started using the blackstrap molasses I’m having an easier time with the monthly flow business (sorry to anyone who shudders at the mention). I still have tampons left over for the next cycle which hasn’t been the case in quite some time. So I’m inclined to think blackstrap molasses does help in some way. And the apple cider vinegar probably does help as well. When I think about it I was working out harder before I started trying the vinegar and the molasses and my stomach never really improved, but then I wasn’t doing the kind of core focused work I’m doing now so I don’t know. I guess I’d say it’s all the things combined that are slowly improving my situation. Obviously I still have a long way to go. I’ll be continuing to do this in the hope that by January 2013 I’ll be fibroid free.
