    Default apple cider vinegar and black strap molasses works wonders for...

    Yesterday, while standing at a street corner waiting for the light to turn, I listened to a brief conversation which took place in the car which was stopped at the lights.

    One woman said to the other "one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and one tablespoon of black strap molasses in a glass of warm water works wonders..." and then their light turned and they drove away.

    These words caught my attention and while I know that apple cider vinegar has many medicinal properties and black strap molasses is very high in iron, I'm not sure what the combination of the two might work wonders for.

    Not only did these words catch my attention but it felt as if the message was being delivered to me, either to help my well being or the well being of others.

    If you have any idea as to what these two substances combined might be helpful in aiding, I'd appreciate it if you'd post it here.

    Thank you.

    I do this combination daily with a wee bit of baking soda and some fulvic acid, as just a general tonic(in about 6oz's of water). I do them them together because it just works out better. The bsm alone is tough to take and so is the acv but combined together they honestly don't taste too bad and i can take it all down in a swig or two without having to make contorted faces or strange noises(both of which happen to me with straight acv and bsm). Not sure if there is some kind of synergistic effect of taking them together. I think acv is a probiotic and bacteria love bsm, perhaps that could be part of it. To answer your question what these things help with the lists for both are quite long, i would take a gander at http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/molasses.html and http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/acvinegar.html . Hope this helped some!

    I know this in combination with honey in stead of molasses.
    I sometimes add a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper and some turmeric.

    Here's the Apple-Cider-Vinegar-and-Honey-Remedy

    The health benefits of the apple cider vinegar and honey drink are widely known.
    This recipe has traditionally been used as an at-home self remedy for many ailments, and even as an anti-aging elixir.
    Many people have recognised and made use of its cleansing and disinfecting properties to self-detoxify their body.
    It is seen as a powerful cleansing agent and natural healing elixir with naturally occurring antibiotic and antiseptic that fights germs and bacteria

    Here is a Turmeric Honey, Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne Pepper Cleanse

    Although the lady here says she uses a teaspoon of Cayenne, I would not recommend that !!
    Start with just a tiny pinch and raise the amount later.

    Hi DOT, have a look at 'Vernon veto Johnson' (google).
    There is a interesting 10-min vid, covers much the same recipe, and he tells a good story.

    Hi Daughter of Time,

    Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar cured my two tablet a day habit of Zantac within two days. I drink it first thing in the morning. 1T in glass 6 oz of H2O. After, I rinse and gargle because acid is not good for teeth. I also read if you brush your teeth still rinse before for obvious reasons.

    I also have a spray bottle of 50-50% distilled H2O and Bragg’s vinegar. After washing face and before moisturizer.

    Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar


    Home Remedies - Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar

    CNE BLEMISHES

    Apply a solution of apple cider vinegar and water (2 tablespoons to 1 eight ounce glass of water) with a cotton ball several times a day. This will help reduce infection and dry out inflammation.
    
Another natural healing home remedy calls for the daily application of apple cider vinegar which has been infused with horseradish. Prepare the solution by adding two cups of ACV to one pound of grated horseradish. Let it sit for two weeks, then strain.
    For more information on the types of things that contribute to chronic acne and what simple steps to take to stop them, (using all natural products) check out Mike Walden's e-book called "Acne No More".

    AGE SPOTS
    Apply daily, to these darkened areas of the skin, a solution containing 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of Onion Juice. According to this home remedy, the spots should begin to fade within 2 weeks.

    ARTHRITIS HELP
    Message the sore joints with a liniment made up of 2 egg whites, ½ cup (125 ml) apple cider vinegar, and ¼ cup (60 ml) olive oil. Also, simply taking the apple cider vinegar tonic (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) before each meal has been an effective natural healing home remedy for many people.

    ASTHMA

    Some people have found relief from mild asthma by taking the apple cider vinegar tonic along with applying a vinegar-soaked compress to the inside of the wrists.

    ATHLETE'S FOOT
    
Athlete's foot is a fungal infection which is quite difficult to get rid of. One of the best home remedies involves soaking the feet twice a day in a 50/50 mixture of apple cider vinegar and water. Or, you can apply pure apple cider vinegar to the affected areas several times a day and before bedtime.

    BLEEDING NOSE

    Soak a cotton ball in pure apple cider vinegar, have the person lay his head back and then place it in the bleeding nostril. This home remedy will help stop the bleeding quicker.



    BLOOD PRESSURE
    
Take 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey in a glass of water twice a day to help lower blood pressure. The high potassium values in both natural healing substances helps to balance out sodium levels in the body, which aids in maintaining blood pressure within healthy limits. Apple cider vinegar and honey also contain magnesium, a mineral that works to relax blood vessel walls and thus lower high blood pressure. To maximize the benefit of this and other home remedies, take the holistic approach, and couple this with dietary modifications such as a reduced fat and salt intake, increased fiber intake, moderate coffee and alcohol, no smoking, and daily exercise.

    BODY ODOR
    
Use apple cider vinegar as a natural body deodorant and eliminate the bacteria causing offensive body odor. For example, check out these two related home remedies:
Underarms can be kept free of odor causing bacteria by wiping them once a day with undiluted apple cider vinegar whereas foot odor can be greatly minimized by soaking the feet two or three times weekly in a pan of warm water mixed with 1/3 cup (75 ml) of ACV.

    BONE HEALTH
    
Due to its mineral content, Apple cider vinegar helps to sustain bone mass and fight against osteoporosis. The important minerals involved include manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, and silicon.
Take the general apple cider vinegar tonic (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) to boost the body's supply of these minerals. Click here to find more about the mineral content of apple cider vinegar. 



    BRUISES
    
Dissolve 1 teaspoon of salt in ½ cup (125 ml) of warm apple cider vinegar and apply it to the bruise as a compress.

    BURNS

    Apply pure apple cider vinegar to the burn, whether it's from the sun or a hot surface, to reduce the pain, to disinfect, and to supply nutrient required for healing.

To get the maximum benefit of this home treatment, treat the burn immediately, until pain is relieved.

Generally the results occur faster and more efficiently than when flushing the burn under cold water, often eliminating almost all swelling and redness.

Note also that the skin does not burn on contact with vinegar (unless this is an open wound, which is not the common case of a burn), you only feel a slight tingling sensation without pain.

    CANCER PREVENTION
    
Apples and apple cider vinegar contain numerous substances that protect against many types of cancer. They contain beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant, and phytochemicals such as flavonoids and polyphenols that are also protective against cancer formation.
    
Plus they both contain pectin, a soluble fiber , which binds certain cancer causing compounds in the colon and speeds up their elimination from the body.
So eat an apple a day and take the general apple cider vinegar tonic home remedy (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) to maximize these benefits.

    CHOLESTEROL REDUCTION
    
It is thought that the water soluble fiber pectin, found in apple cider vinegar, absorbs fats and cholesterol and eliminates them from the body. And at the same time, the amino acids present in apple cider vinegar neutralize some of the harmful oxidized LDL cholesterol.

    Recently, researchers from Mizkan, a japanese food manufacturer, reported that regular vinegar intake of 3 teaspoons (15 ml) or more per day can significantly lower the level of cholesterol in a persons blood. They found that acetic acid, the major ingredient in vinegar, is responsible for this effect.

    The results were presented at the 59th Annual Meeting for the Japanese Society of Nutrition and Food Science in May 2005.

    Maximize this benefit by taking the apple cider vinegar tonic home remedy (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) and increasing the amount of fiber rich food in your diet (more fruits and vegetables) while reducing the amount of saturated and unsaturated fat.

    COLDS
    
At the first sign of a cold, take 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in half a cup of water several times a day. The body becomes more alkaline during a cold and the vinegar will help to rebalance the body's acid level. If you have a chest cold, a long-standing home remedy calls for soaking a piece of brown paper in vinegar then sprinkling one side of it with black pepper. Place the peppered side of the paper on the chest, cover with a towel, and relax for 20 minutes.

    CONSTIPATION
    
A low fiber diet and the reduction in digestive acids and enzymes as we age, can lead to constipation. More fruits and vegetables and a daily tonic of apple cider vinegar (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) is a natural healing home remedy to combat constipation.

    CORN AND CALLUS TREATMENT

    Soak your feet for half an hour in a warm bath containing half a cup of apple cider vinegar. Use a clean pumice stone to rub the affected areas then apply pure apple cider vinegar and cover with a bandage. Reapply vinegar and bandage the following morning.

    COUGHS
    
A home remedy to sooth a nighttime cough is to sprinkle apple cider vinegar on a cloth placed on a pillow.

    CRAMPS
    
Muscle cramps can be caused by a calcium and magnesium imbalance in the body and by a lack of vitamin E. To help prevent the recurrence of cramps, take a regular tonic of apple cider vinegar (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) along with 1 teaspoon of honey.

    DANDRUFF
    
Apply pure apple cider vinegar to the scalp and work it into the roots of the hair; allow the vinegar to stand for a half hour or a full hour before washing your hair. This will help to destroy the bacteria and fungus that cause dandruff and itchy scalp. Click here for information on how apple cider vinegar can be combined with certain herbs to make an extra strength natural hair care product for combating dandruff and soothing itchy scalp.



    DIABETES
    
A daily tonic of apple cider vinegar (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) supplies dietary fiber and other ingredients, which are beneficial in controlling blood glucose levels. As well, the acids and enzymes promote better digestion and nutrient absorption, which is impaired in many diabetes sufferers.

This home remedy has been the subject of new research that shows that apple cider vinegar can help lower blood sugar levels.
    Click here for more details. 



    DIAPER RASH
    
Use a 50/50 mixture of apple cider vinegar and water to eliminate the bacteria and fungus that cause diaper rash.

    DIARRHE
    A
Pectin, the water soluble fiber in apple cider vinegar, will help to absorb water in the intestines and provide more bulk for the stool. Also, intestinal bacteria transforms pectin into a protective coating which soothes the irritated lining. The well known over the counter diarrhea preparation, Kaopectate contains pectin. So take the natural healing apple cider vinegar tonic (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) to help eliminate diarrhea.

    DIGESTION
    
As we age, it is common for people to produce less stomach acid (hydrochloric acid) which can lead to digestive problems. Taking the apple cider vinegar tonic home remedy (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) before a meal will enhance the action of your stomach's acid and digestive enzymes.

    EAR INFECTIONS
    
Use an ear syringe (found at drug stores) to squirt a vinegar solution into the ear and let it sit for a minute or so, then turn your head and let the liquid drain out.

The vinegar solution can be a 50/50 mixture of ACV and pure water, a 50/50 mixture of ACV and rubbing alcohol or a solution consisting of one-third vinegar, one-third pure water, and one-third rubbing alcohol.

If the ear problem persists, see a health professional.

    

ECZEMA
    
To help relieve the itching and dryness of eczema, apply a 50/50 mixture of apple cider vinegar and water to the affected areas.

    FATIGUE
    
It is thought that the potassium and enzymes obtained through regular use of a vinegar tonic can help beat fatigue. Some experts believe that the addition of 1 or 2 teaspoons of raw honey to the ACV tonic will also help.

    FLATULENCE
    
Many people avoid eating certain foods such as beans due to the gas they produce in the body. This gas is a result of incomplete digestion and can be minimized by soaking the beans in apple cider vinegar prior to cooking them.

    FOOT CARE
    
Try this home remedy for sore and tired feet which sometimes ache at the end of a long day: Add a cup of apple cider vinegar to a basin of warm water and allow your feet to soak for 15 minutes.

    GALLBLADDER FLUSH (GALLSTONES)
    
Along with the apple cider vinegar tonic (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) before meals, take 6 ounces of organic , unfiltered apple juice for 1 week. This natural home remedy has been reported to help purge small gallstones that could grow to larger ones that would require conventional medical treatment to remove.

A more extensive gallbladder flush is outlined by Patricia Bragg on page 29 of her book called " Apple Cider Vinegar: Miracle Health System".
    GOUT
Although not yet backed up by scientific testing, many people have found that gout home remedies using apple cider vinegar are very effective.
The procedure involves either ingesting an apple cider vinegar tonic or applying ACV to the affected area.
Click here for detailed information on gout and how to use apple cider vinegar as an alternative home remedy for gout.

    

HEADACHES
    
Research has shown that people have slightly more alkaline urine when they have a headache. An apple cider vinegar tonic will help restore your body's acid/alkaline balance. 
According to one home remedy, inhaling the vapors from a small bottle of apple cider vinegar can also help or if you have a vaporizer, add about 2 tablespoons cider vinegar to the water and inhale the vapors for five minutes.

    HEARTBURN (ACID REFLUX)
    
Heartburn or acid reflux is a condition in which some of the acid content of the stomach periodically backs up into the esophagus.
Even though testimonials abound throughout the net on the effectiveness of using apple cider vinegar to relieve heartburn, no scientific studies have been done to substantiate this.
A recent survey, however, conducted at the Earth Clinic web site found that vinegar was the best of all the home remedies suggested to relieve heartburn or acid reflux.

So to relieve occasional heartburn, try drinking the general apple cider vinegar tonic (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) before each meal.
Click here for more information on acid reflux and how apple cider vinegar and some simple lifestyle and dietary changes have helped others.



    HEMORRHOIDS

    A) For mild cases:
Apply the natural healing abilities of pure apple cider vinegar directly to hemorrhoids to help reduce stinging and promote shrinking. Use a cotton ball to apply the vinegar every few hours until symptoms are relieved.

B) For more advanced cases:
And for more information on chronic hemorrhoids, including an an All-Natural Cure that is fast, safe and effective, check out Holly Hayden's e-book called:
" H Miracle - The #1 Alternative solution for Eliminating Piles". 

Holly Hayden, a former hemorrhoids sufferer herself, gives at least 10 different instant relief, all natural, remedies and she offers a full 100% refund for up to 8 weeks after purchase if you try them and don't see dramatic results.

    
HICCUPS
    
To stop hiccups, try sipping a glass of warm water in which one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar has been mixed in. This is a lot simpler than many other home remedies for hiccups.

    INSECT BITES AND STINGS
    
Bee and wasp stings, as well as itchy mosquito bites can be soothed by applying undiluted apple cider vinegar to the affected area.

    INSOMNIA
    
Dr Jarvis in his book "Folk Medicine" recommends the use of honey and apple cider vinegar for those who have a hard time falling asleep at night. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in one cup of honey and take two teaspoons of this mixture just before going to bed. Repeat after an hour if required. (You can sleep on that one!)

Some people find that simply taking one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces of water just before bedtime, helps them to get to sleep quicker and sleep much longer.

    

JELLYFISH STINGS (Chironex Fleckeri and Chiropsalmus Quadrigatus)

    The sting of the large box jellyfish, found along the northern tropical coastline of Australia, can be deadly. The venom injected by these animals is capable of killing humans within minutes.
When a sting occurs, pieces of tentacle may be left in the victims skin which can continue to release venom. However, by dousing the sting area with regular vinegar (5% acetic acid content), the further release of poison will be rapidly and completely stopped.
That's why Australian lifeguards always keep vinegar on hand and it's their initial first aid treatment of choice.

Reference:
Australian Resuscitation Council Guideline 8.9.6

    


LEG CRAMPS
    
Take the apple cider vinegar tonic regularly (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) to help the body's absorption of calcium and magnesium and thus protect against painful leg cramps.

    MENSTRUAL PROBLEMS
    
A glass of apple cider tonic (2 or 3 teaspoons to 8 ounces of water) in the morning has been reported to help reduce the flow of a heavy period.

    MORNING SICKNESS
    
Many women experience nausea and vomiting, often in the morning, during the first three months of pregnancy. A home remedy reported to help keep morning sickness at bay involves simply drinking, as soon as you get up, a glass of water containing a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.

    MUSCLE SORENESS
    
Apply a cloth dampened with apple cider vinegar and a dash of cayenne pepper directly to the sore muscle for 5 minutes and reapply as needed.
For sore muscles all-over, try soaking in a warm water bath into which you have added 2 to 3 cups of apple cider vinegar.

    

NAIL FUNGUS
    
Nail and toenail fungus infections are very difficult to cure even with modern drugs which many people prefer not to use due to reported side effects and poor effectiveness.
Fortunately there are many vinegar home remedies used to cure this condition some which use only vinegar and others involve combinations of vinegar with hydrogen peroxide, tea tree oil, olive oil, etc.
In all cases the treatment lasts for months and is usually applied to the effected area twice a day.
Click here for more information on nail fungus and a description of one of the simpler vinegar nail fungus home remedies involving just plain white distilled vinegar.



    NIGHT SWEATS & HOT FLASHES

    Apple cider vinegar has helped reduce, even eliminate, hot flashes and night sweats for many menopausal women. The home remedy recommends taking a vinegar tonic daily, morning & night: 1 – 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces of vinegar (or other beverage).

Click here to find more about apple cider vinegar as a home remedy for hot flashes and night sweats.

    POISON IVY & POISON OAK
    
The health and fitness expert Patricia Bragg recommends spraying a solution of equal parts apple cider vinegar and distilled water on to the affected areas to stop the pain, itching and ease the swelling. Cooling the spray in the refrigerator will provide even more relief. 



    SHINGLES

    Taking a bath of warm water mixed with with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar will help relieve the itching of shingles rashes. 
Also, drinking the ACV tonic and applying undiluted ACV directly to the rash is a home remedy for shingles that is outlined on this web page. 
It has been reported to lessen shingles pain and limit the rash from spreading. 



    SINUSITIS
    
To help relieve the pain of sinusitis, both Patrick Quillin PhD, in his book Amazing Honey Garlic and Vinegar, and Cynthia Holzapfel, in her book Apple Cider Vinegar for Weight Loss and Good Health, suggest drinking a glass of water with 1 or 2 teaspoons of ACV added, every hour for 6 to 8 hours.

For sinus headache, Marie Nadine Antol, in her book The Incredible Secrets of Vinegar, recommends adding an eight of a cup of ACV to a cool-air vaporizer and inhaling the infused-air directly for 5 minutes. 
After that lie down for 20 minutes and wait for your respiratory passages to clear.

For excess mucus in the nose, throat, or sinus cavities (post nasal drip), try a solution of warm water and 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Place a small amount in the palm of your hand, block one nostril, then place the other nostril into the vinegar solution and sniff hard. You'll experience the disinfecting and mucus-cutting benefits of apple cider vinegar deep into your sinus cavities. Let the solution run down the back of your throat then spit it out. After that, repeat with the other nostril.

    

SORE THROAT
    
One of many natural healing home remedies for a sore throat involves gargling with a mixture of 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to half a cup of water, using 3 mouthfuls of mixture each hour. 
As P. Bragg warns in her book "Apple Cider Vinegar-Miracle Health System", don't swallow the gargled mixture, because ACV acts like a sponge drawing out throat and mouth germs and toxins.



    SUN BURNS
    
If the sunburn is localized, apply full strength apple cider vinegar on the affected skin to obtain relief. Do this by soaking a thin towel in apple cider vinegar and placing it over the burn. Leave it on to help prevent peeling and itching.
If the sunburn covers a large part of the body then try this home remedy recommended by Patricia Bragg in her book called Apple Cider Vinegar-Miracle Health System:
Take a cool bath in which one cup of ACV has been added. After soaking in the bath, gently dry the body and pat ACV directly onto the needed areas. Wait 5 minutes, then pat on aloe vera gel.

ULCERS
A preliminary study in Japan showed that taking a weak vinegar solution can give over 95% protection from alcohol-induced ulcers.



    URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS

    Drink a daily tonic of apple cider vinegar to help you keep the right pH balance in the urinary tract since the proper acidity creates an inhospitable environment for bacteria and yeasts that cause these infections.
    
Cranberry juice is also a well known home remedy for urinary tract infections. It prevents bacteria from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract.
For a tasty drink, try adding 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to an eight ounce glass of cranberry juice and benefit from both home remedies at the same time.

    VARICOSE VEINS
    
Dr Jarvis notes that the following folk remedy is used not only in Vermont but also in Scotland, England and Germany.
Apply undiluted apple cider vinegar to the varicose veins at night and in the morning, and take two teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water twice a day. Shrinking of the veins will be noticed after one month.

    

WARTS
    
Patricia Bragg cautions: do not rub warts since this could spread them. Apply an ACV soaked gauze bandage to the wart overnight and in the morning replace it with a castor oil soaked gauze bandage. At night alternate the ACV with crushed fresh garlic and vitamin E (prick open capsule).

Click here for details on warts and another effective (and simpler) home remedy for the removal of warts using apple cider vinegar.

    

WEIGHT LOSS
    
The use of apple cider vinegar as a home remedy for weight loss is centuries old. Dr Jarvis maintained that an overweight person could lose weight gradually by taking 2 teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water at each meal. No change in the daily food intake is required except to avoid high fat containing foods.

Click here for more information on apple cider vinegar and weight loss.

    YEAST INFECTION
    
According to one home remedy, relief can be obtained by the use of a vinegar douche, consisting of 2 tablespoons of ACV mixed in one quart of warm water, applied twice a day until the burning and itching symptoms of the infection have stopped.

Frequent douching however is no longer recommended, since recent studies have shown that this can cause more harm than good. 
A vinegar bath, prepared by adding one cup of ACV to the bath water, can help provide external relief.

If you tend to get frequent yeast infections, try to find the cause (such as antibiotic use or a diet too high in refined sugars) and reduce or eliminate it.

    Thank you Paula, for the detailed explanations.

    I've been researching and just found out that the combination of apple cider vinegar and black strap molasses dissolves fibroid tumors.

    So there it is!

    Since we are on the subject, i would like to share my experience with apple cider vinegar.

    I had a couple of warts on my fingers. one on the pad of my index finger was becoming painful.. They had been there for many years (10+) and i never worried about them as they were flush with the skin, and would have had to be surgically removed.

    the irritation drove me to look for a solution, and i read of people having luck with ACV.

    1st i got a cotton bud, soaked it in ACV and applied it to the wart with a band aid. the ACV kept drying out though, and it seemed ineffective. after about 24 hours of this i picked at the top of the wart, and it seemed to be getting flakey.

    I decided to take it up a level, and did the same with a cotton bud, ACV and a bandaid, but this time i wrapped my finger in duct tape to keep it airtight. and left it for 24 hours... After 24 hours my finger was pretty waterlogged and a little painful. I decided i had had enough and gave up.

    2 weeks later my warts had become hard little black scabs, one day the scab came loose and i ripped it off... wart gone...

    It is interesting to note that a second wart on my thumb that only got treated with the drying out bandaid (i dipped my fingers in ACV every 2-3 hours through the day) also disappeared about 2 weeks after that

    I like molasses. when I worked with cattle, I would give the calves some molasses with fodder a few times, giving the "c'mon" call, so they get used to associating the call with good things. This is one way of humane rearing of live-stock, no whips or cattle prods required, no stress during movement. The cattle are quiet and you can walk amongst them safely, run your hands across them, stroke them. If we are to eat meat, this is the way it should be reared. Obviously the cattle get molasses every now and them anyway, it is a good food.

    I eat molasses in organic bsm liquorice, and also, everytime I bake bread, I put a good few-three tablespoons of molasses in the mix, along with oats, quinoia, pepitas, coconut oil. I make wholemeal spelt sourdough, and it is very good!! Molases helps a bit there I think

    I also use molasses for Boston baked beans, though I prefer Quebec-style baked beans using maple syrup myself

    Apple cider vinegar, with mother of vinegar? - yep, every day

    Yeap! That's the common use for those two ingredients but I have to say I used for some time (months) and they didn't do anything for my fibroids.
