It just seems to be going up and down. One minute I think the fibroids are shrinking and I get really excited, the next minute I’m back at square one. I now have a new issue to deal with – bloating. Pre-fibroids, I had no idea what this was. Now, it seems to be my nightmare.
One week before my cycle, my belly would swell. A few days after the cycle, it would shrink. (It would take two years for me to discover why, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.) Then there was the frequent urination. Cranberry juice helped (and still helps) a lot though.
On the next trip to the doctor, I voiced my frustration. Why do some women report that after taking blackstrap molasses, they have been completely cured, yet I’ve been taking this thing for months now and though there have been tremendous improvements, the tumors are still there? “Because your body is different,” she said. “Something else is going on with you.” Hmm, I never thought of that. I need to do more research.
Here’s how unsulphered blackstrap molasses helped:
- Cured my anemia
- Helped to eliminate back pain (I also did targeted exercises)
- In the midst of “flooding,” I would take two tablespoons. This little trick would stop it immediately
- Instead of two heavy days, I was now down to one not so heavy day. In fact, bleeding reduced significantly overall.
- Energy level increased
I then started to notice the weight gain.
