How to use red clover for shrinking or dissolving fibroids


I just came across a video from a lady who says she used the herb red clover to shrink her fibroids naturally in 3 months time. She was a lovely lady, but the information for how she managed to shrink her fibroids using red clover does not appear to be available for free and unfortunately, although she is only charging a small amount for the book within which she tells how she did it, I cannot afford to buy her book. So I am now trying to read up on red clover.

Apparently red clover contains isoflavones, which are estrogen-like compounds. I’ve come across articles in the past that talk about isoflavones in connection with shrinking fibroids. Apparently the isoflavones in red clover have been used to treat menopausal symptoms and to help balance the acid-alkaline level of the vagina. Acid and alkaline are two words I’ve come across a number of times in my research trying to find natural ways to shrink fibroids, but I’ve never really understood their importance well enough to attempt to explain the role of either in fibroid growth or fibroid shrinkage.

I don’t personally know how to use red clover for fibroids, if there is a special formula or what. If you happen to know more about this and feel like you want to help those of us ladies who are looking for help shrinking our fibroids but can’t afford to buy books that tell us how to do it, feel free to share in the comments section.

In the meantime, I’ll see if I can manage to get my hands on the below product and put red clover to the test while not knowing if there’s a special way it has to be prepared or what.

I did come across some material in which it was suggested that red clover should be avoided if you have uterine fibroids;but as you might suspect, I have also come across material that suggests red clover works for shrinking fibroids. I don’t figure my fibroids can possibly grow much bigger so what’s the risk if I try it?

Here are some articles you might find useful in deciding whether or not to try red clover yourself:

My name is Monica. I have fibroids. My fibroids are large enough that they have transformed my figure into something I am still trying to learn how to live with. In the meantime while I try to learn how to live with my fibroids I am also trying every possible method I can find to try to shrink them naturally because I am afraid of the idea of a hysterectomy. I lived with fibroids from 2007 - 2016. I started documenting my experiences on this blog in 2012. On March 7th 2016 I had a hysterectomy out of concern that I might have ovarian cancer. It did not turn out that I had ovarian cancer. The cancer scare forced the hysterectomy I was trying to avoid, and so, I became fibroid free as of March 7th 2016. I will try to keep this blog up and running in the hope that it will be of some use to others going through what I went through.


  1. Oddly, I’ve read the exact opposite,that red clover is bad for fibroids and so I’ve avoided it. I’ve read that vitex is incredible for shrinking fibroids.

    • dr3amcandy I’ve also read that it’s bad for fibroids but in other material I’ve read the opposite so I figured if it won’t kill me I’ll take the risk. But the result for me has been that it has not done anything to help and might possible have hurt a little bit. Thank you for sharing your comment.

    • Basically, you’d have to stop consuming all greens because they all mimic estrogen. Some have more than others. Contrary to what you’re thinking, plants have good estrogen and helps the body excrete excess human estrogen. Well, certain plants like soy could be toxic because they might be too removed from nature (scientific). However, I’ve never found information that stated that red clover is one of them.

      I’m taking organic red clover by Nature’s Way. I can’t say definitively that it’s doing anything to me because I’m using it in combination with a 20-30-minute v-steam home concoction: a third jar turmeric, half jar red pepper, and half jar Italian seasoning (average common size seasoning jars).

      Since using these, my period reduced in volume and duration. It could be the steam (3 cycles in), but I used a different brand of red clover, along with other herbs and found relief–suspected that the tumors were shrinking but couldn’t continue the costly treatment, as is normally the problem because herbalists are in it for the profits just like the very people they criticize are.

      Also, because I’m home, I’m exercising every day of each month, except for seven to ten days, the duration of my period.

      I’ve no time to isolate one treatment. I’ve been managing them since 2003. They’re still growing but manageable. I forbid surgery. Though, I developed other health concerns because of them and may have to consider it.

      It’s been almost 50 days since I started the red clover. I collected another order today, coincidentally. Hope to give you an update in probably two months.

  2. I just googled “red clover” and checked out what it said about it on WebMD. Considering it states that red clover mimics estrogen it would not be a good choice for those with fibroids. Anyone with fibroids knows that their body is producing too much estrogen and it is “feeding” the tumors. I have buried my head in the sand too long about my fibroids( been focusing on others and not myself) but I am determined to shrink mine.The one in my stomach(well, at the very top of my uterus) is quite large,just nauseating. I am researching everything about fibroids like a mad dog. If anyone wants to talk about this, if they are dealing with the same thing,please email at serenitygirl11@yahoo.com. Information is knowledge. I do not want meds or surgery. I have a game plan in mind but any chatting would be nice,possibly helpful. First thing, sadly is to give up coffee and tea and the occasional soda. Good Luck everyone!!! My next blood test is August 13- fingers crossed my iron level has gone up.

    • I’ve tried organic blackstrap molasses. I came to the conclusion that it does not help me. I can’t speak for anyone else. I had to stop using it because the benefits weren’t outweighing the detriments in my opinion. I do think every individual is different. So decisions on whether or not to try something shouldn’t be based on other people’s opinion that it doesn’t work just because it did not work for them.

  3. Hi there,
    Have you tried the red clover? I just purchased her ebook and will read it soon.

    I had a quick scan of introduction and she mentioned to check your estrogen hormone level fisrt before trying.

  4. i just started black strap.molasses and organic appke.cider.vinegar. im gona stop the red clover cause everyone seems to.think.it exarcebate the conditions. what has.worked.for.u. please.share

  5. am also struggling with the effect of fibroid and did several researches.The one I found to be intresting is changing your diet,which am watching to see results.

  6. I have 12cm fibroid that I have been struggling with for 3 years. I am also trying to avoid a hysterectomy but it is getting harder to put off. In November I had to have a blood transfusion due to the amount of blood loss I was having during my cycle. I live in fear each month now that it will happen again. I have seen 2 naturopaths and I have done extensive research. I am now taking a combination of herbs based on my naturopaths knowledge and also from what I have read as well as eating a estrogen reducing diet. I have only been on this treatment plan for a month now but I am feeling better already, probably due to the fact that I am taking better care of myself.

    2-3 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar 1-2 times per day in water
    Maitake D Fraction Pro 4x (Mushroom Wisdom) As directed
    European Mistletoe (Genestra Brands) 10 drops 2x per day
    Vitex Berry (Gaia Herbs) as directed
    Black Cohosh (Gaia) as directed
    Turmeric Supreme (Gaia) 2 capsules daily
    Dong Quai Supreme (Gaia) as directed
    Saw Palmetto Berry (Gaia) as directed
    Echinacea Red Root (Gaia) as directed
    Female Reproductive Formula (Dr. Christophers Herb Shop) 2 capsules 3x per day
    Hormonal Changease (Dr. Christophers) 2 capsules 3x per day
    Wheat Germ oil (needed for better absorption of the herbs) 3x per day

    Also during my cycle I have been drinking infusions of ginger and cinnamon as well as taking and herbal remedy called “Slow Flow” by Vitanica. I take the slow flow every three hours (3 capsules every 3 hours) during the heaviest bleeding and this seemed to help on the last cycle. I also drink two teas to help with liver detoxification, Everyday Detox by Traditional Medicines and Roasted Dandelion Root by Traditional Medicines.

  7. HI perhaps I can be of some assistance here. I’ve had fibroids for over five years now and have decided its time to get rid of it. I’ve been researching for years and have learned that the best and most effective way to permanently get rid of fibroids is to alkalizing. Alkalizing is simple relay, its drinking and eating lots of raw green vegetables and raw green juices. To shrink fibroids one must avoid all dairy which increases fibroids size at an astronomical level. Avoid all meats and fish products and drink lots of green juices. You can find green juice recipes at Dan the juicer on you tube or fully raw Christine also on you tube. Most importantly avoid all soy base products which affects estrogen levels and leads to hormonal imbalances. I Bleed buckets during my menstrual cycle when I had soy and its in so many foods and sauces. You have to read the labels on all the foods you buy. Once I eradicated soy from my diet my menstrual cycle went from 7 days to 3 days. I also saw the video of how the lady cured her fibroids and the reason her cure was so effective was because she got rid of dairy from her diet which stopped the growth of the fibroids. She got rid of the meat which helped her body to alkalize along with the green juices and the clover leaf which released the excess blood from the fibroid tumers. This allowed the fibrois to shrink. Once the body stays alkalize the fibroid will never return. The alkalizing method is also effective in naturally healing the body of cancer. Cancer cells cannot grow in a alkalize environment only in an acidic environment. so its effective in getting rid of cancer. Fasting is also a good way to detox the body, it allows the body the room to clean out excess damage tissue and cleans the organs.The body does this naturally when it doesn’t have to process the daily intake of food, it has the time and space to get to work. My friend Mom cured her body of cancer twice using the fasting method. Red clover is not recommended if you don’t have high estrogen levels. But others herbs can be used. This is what my five years of research have taught me. I’ve decide I’m ready to have kids so I’m going to apply every thing I’ve learned to get rid of my fibroids. This is necessary for optimal delivery. I’ll post comments along my journey about the effectiveness of these methods as I apply them.

  8. Good Evening thanks for all the information..I’m also trying to rid my body of such and Red Clover tea morning and night was recommended to purge me of the fibroids and rebuild my blood…I was also told to juice cabbage for five days…Cabbage metabolizes the estrogen…to alkaline my body I take 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water, a teaspoon of acv in a glass of water…getting your iron rich veggies juiced or steam is recommended for iron…I’ve also lost some inches in the process…oh and light exercise assists in circulation.

  9. Red clover worked for me. I used it for 6 months. I also used wild yam twice during that time. I don’t know if that addition helped more or what. The thing with wild yam is you have to take it during specific times of the month. There is a chance of bleeding while taking it if you had too much for your body. That happened to me. I stopped taking it. To stop the bleeding I took midol (it lasted only a couple days but was alarming). Do your research and know your body is what I suggest.

    • I’M 31 and I have a fibroid on my right side that aches. I have normal cycles but just have constant aches on my side. Please tell me which red clover you took so I can start healing myself. I need to get my old body back.

  10. DIM -(Smokey Mountain brand only) works wonders for me. My fibroids shrunk 2cm in 7 days, that said, my largest is still 10cm. I don’t bleed alot at all unless I run out of DIM. I also take red raspberry capsules, and d Calcium glucarate to help rid my system of excess estrogen. A probiotic is a good idea also when taking DIM. Vitex didn’t work for me. It seemed to cause my fibroids to get larger and caused pain and discomfort. I bought red clover but have been afraid to try it out. I recently added Gotu Kola at night which seems to help me sleep more comfortably.

    • Hello, I am currently searching for options. Can you tell me what has been your progress with the fibroids as it relates to the DIM?

  11. Clear back in the early 70s, my mom was critically ill and septic from a bowel obstruction. When she was stabilized enough for surgery, it was addressed and during her extensive and very invasive surgery, they discovered that she had several large fibroid tumors. The surgeon himself told me this and said he would have to wait to do anything about them until she had recovered. I bought her red clover tea that she began using twice a day when she got home. When she returned to him six weeks later for a recheck, he got a puzzled look on his face and asked her, “Didn’t I tell you that you have (6 or8, I now don’t recall) fibroid tumors?” He was flipping through her chart, reading. She said yes and he replied, “Well, I must have made a mistake….you don’t have any fibroids.” She never told him what she had done because she thought he’d get upset. Remember, this was still in the era when patients as a rule didn’t feel they could question their physicians. 🙂 I’m not one of them! She just regularly drank the tea made from loose red clover, nothing else added during those 6 weeks.
