progress report: 20% shrinkage over past 4 months

I started a new protocol at the beginning of November and it's been working!  Some of the elements are continued from previously, and some are new ones.  In particular, the homeopathic cell salt I think is the key element.

My Chi Nei Tsang practitioner estimates that I have had about 20% shrinkage since the beginning of November.  So it looks like I have found an approach that works for me, and will keep tweaking it to continue and accelerate the shrinkage! (Note, I am going to wait to get an ultrasound for exact measurement until I have more shrinkage, but I too can see and feel the difference so I am very sure there has been shrinkage.)

Key elements:

  • Homeopathic cell salt aimed at addressing sycosis. I'll write more about this later when I have more time, it's a homeopathic tendency to create excess growths.  Homeopathic doctors 100+ years ago got great results in fibroid shrinking by addressing sycosis. The one I am using is calcarea fluorica, I have mostly used the 30c but also sometimes use 6x.
  • Additional homepathic remedies by Unda and also Gemmotherapy remedies (red raspberry and rosemary) prescribed by my naturopath.
  • Chinese herbs:  Sparganium 12 most of the time, occasionally rotating with Gui Zhi Fu Ling and Four Substances for Women.  Sparganium 12 has a combination of the best mass-shrinking herbs and also it's very reasonably priced compared to some other Chinese herb formulas with similar ingredients.
  • Slender Tea, one packet per day.  I don't think it necessarily makes you slender, but the astralagus strengthens the spleen and it has green tea (a proven green tea shrinker) in it too. Bonus -- it's currently on sale!  And I love how it tastes. Occasionally for a break rotate out with White Peony Tea.
  • DIM and d-calcium glucarate, each 2-3 times daily.  For estrogen metabolism.
  • Not very consistent but when possible doing the Shangri-La Diet, with refined walnut oil and also taking my 2x daily fish oil (Ultimate Omega) away from meals instead of with.
  • Working with a new acupuncturist who has been focusing on my stomach and spleen channels, and also with a Standard Process nutritional response testing expert who has put me on some of their products.
I'm doing a lot of other things too but these are the ones that I am doing differently so it's one or a combination of these that seem to be doing the trick. As I said, I think that the calcarea fluorica is likely the big key.

I am glad to know your improvement. I am 28 suffering from multiple fibroids....i had a myomectmy 28 months back....dr removed 18 fibroids and now I am having them again. I got married last year and trying my best to conceive....but unfortunately no luck, my fallopian tubes might be Compressed or god knows. Please is there anyway anyone can help me. I am immensely depressed as I am just 28 having this problem. Everyone is talking about black strap molasses....does this really work??

Hello Anonymous. So sorry to hear your fibroids are growing back after your myomectomy. It seems that blackstrap molasses helps with fibroid symptoms, but that alone is not enough to do it. You need to make a major change in your body's "ecology" to get shrinkage. Try the things listed in this article, and also go to a homeopath because as I mention here it seems to help.

Hi, I'm really appreciating your blog! It's encouraging. If you don't mind, I do have some questions for you:

1) Do you know Esmya? I've taken it for three months and my fibroid shrank (from 10x12 to 10x10 cm = 2 cm!). I'm going to start another three-month-cycle in december. Some women have side effects such as headaches or fatigue (I didn't), but if the health insurance covers this very expensive drug, it's worth the try.

Unfortunately, it's not licenced for a long-term-usage in Germany yet - just the two cycles. For this reason, I'm searching for more alternatives... I'm going to try blackstrap molasses, apple cider vingear, calcium d carbonat, baking soda, cayenne pepper, tumeric, alcohol free red wine, aloe vera gel, wheat grass, calcium d glucarate, DIM, Indol 3-Carbinol, green tea extract (just small amounts because of the risk for the liver), vitamin D supplements, castor oil packs, reishi mushroom extract and I'm also going to change my diet. Wow, this list is pretty long. Wish me luck! ;-) Any more suggestions beyond your top-ten-list?
2. Are you still using calcarea fluorica? Is it still your key element? Was your shrinkage finally confirmed by ultrasound? With other words: Should I buy and take it? :-)
3. Are you still avoiding dairy? What do you think about this study:

Thank you and best wishes from Germany, Lotte
