Lipoma

Overview

A benign tumor composed of adipose tissue, a lipoma is the most common form of soft tissue tumor. Soft to the touch, lipomas are usually moveable and tend to be painless. Many lipomas are small (around 1cm or less in diameter) but can enlarge to sizes greater than six centimetres. Commonly found in adults from 40 to 60 years old, lipoma can also be found in children.

In themselves, lipomas are not serious and most lipomas cause no symptoms or problems. Sometimes a lipoma under the skin can be unsightly if it grows to be several centimeters across. Rarely, a lipoma may press on another structure and cause problems. For instance, if one presses on a nerve it may cause pain. Also, rarely, a lipoma may develop in the gut wall and cause problems, such as pain or a blockage of the gut.

Often the most bothersome symptom is the location or increased size that makes the lipoma noticeable by others.

There is a condition called familial multiple lipoma in which groups of fat cells occur under the skin and then produce multiple fatty lumps. This is an uncommon condition and runs in families.

The exact cause of lipomas is unknown. Lipomas tend to run in families, so genetic factors likely play a role in their development.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health protocols

  • Eliminate Candida: Click here to find out how
  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water. It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.
  • Go on a fast to clear your system of toxic waste  www.wecarespa.com

Hydrotherapy:

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water.
  • Take a bath as often as possible up to once a day with two litres of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide.

Lipomas primarily consist of triglycerides, which are formed from the unused calories of the food we eat, and serve as a source of stored energy.

Maintaining a healthy weight and limiting the sugar, fat and cholesterol in your diet help to keep blood triglycerides within acceptable ranges.

If you’re concerned about developing lipomas because of a family history, or want to prevent a recurrence if you already have one, it certainly does not hurt for you to follow a healthy diet that limits your fat and cholesterol intake.

The low-fat, low-cholesterol diet is a healthy diet that includes lean sources of meat, such as chicken and fish, plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat and non-fat dairy products and healthy oils, such as olive and vegetable oil.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef. The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey. Check out www.grasslandbeef.com.

Supplements

People with a lipoma can try a variety of supplements, including the following:

Iodine – Iodine is proven to be beneficial in treating lipoma. An essential supplement for proper thyroid hormone production, iodine plays a huge role in immune function.

Vitamin C – Shown to be beneficial among cancer patients, vitamin C and vitamin D can also prevent seasonal colds and flu. The supplement is easily absorbed and readily available.

Omega 3s – Omega3 acids, extracted from fish oil, help maintain healthy triglyceride levels, which is very important for lipoma sufferers.

Turmeric – There are lots of links which show turmeric may help treat lipomas. It’s also highly recommended by veterinarians to reduce lipomas in dogs.
Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.

  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met. The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Ayurvedic Medicine

As always the fastest most effective way to receive tailored advice to your own situation, you should visit a local licensed practitioner. Find your closest Ayurvedic practitioners here

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

  • Udwartana: This ayurvedic remedy controls the size of lipoma. Udwartana is a deep penetrating herbal lymphatic massage that helps to prevent further accumulation of fat. Udwartana eliminates the lymphatic toxins from body, improves blood circulation and digestion by balancing kapha dosha.
  • Vamana Therapy: Vamana therapy is given to people with high imbalance of kapha.Since lipoma is caused due to deposition of fat, kapha derangements of person needs to be worked upon.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

To receive bespoke advice based upon your own situation you should visit a local licensed practitioner. Find your closest Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners here.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

There’s no real scientific evidence indicating that acupuncture can reduce the symptoms or size of a lipoma. Acupuncture treatments for lipomas may involve inserting needles around the lipoma or stimulation of the acupuncture point located along the spleen and liver meridians. The spleen and liver are common area of stagnating qi or energy congestion. This congestion can manifest as lipomas on your skin or cause other skin disorders as well as additional symptoms like fatigue, depression or anxiety. As such, acupuncture may help open energy blockages and help alleviate lipoma-related symptoms of pain or discomfort.

For lipomas on the upper extremities, add 9 grams each of (Sang Zhi) and (Jiang Huang).

For lipomas on the lower extremities, add 15 grams of (Niu Xi) and 12 grams of (Du Huo). For lipomas on the chest and/or abdomen, add 12 grams of (Chai Hu) and 15 grams of (Chuan Lian Zi).

Aromatherapy

If you’re looking for an additional supplement to assist your body in dissolving the hard skin lumps called lipomas on your body, try any of the following four oils: Frankincense, Clove, Grapefruit and Ginger.

Use 4 drops of essential oil per 25ml of carrier oil.

To ensure positive results, always check that the essential oil is a 100% pure plant distillation and that it comes from a reputable source.

All four of these essential oils for lipoma should be diluted. Try fractionated coconut oil to dilute as directed on the back of the essential oils bottle. Simply apply 1-2 drops on location. Repeat each day for at least 60 days and record your progress. Keep in mind that additional dietary, exercise and lifestyle changes should be improved to see better personal results while using essential oils for dissolving or halting the growth of lipomas. Using essential oils for lipomas should be viewed from a more holistic view.

Homeopathic Medicine

Owing to the principles behind homeopathy it is essential you see a licensed practitioner to receive your own personalised prescription.  Find your closest Homeopath here.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

Herbs

Sage – Sage is an herb that is commonly used in cooking. This versatile plant comes in several varieties and is also used in natural treatment approaches for its ability to thin the blood. According to herbalist Matthew Wood in “The Earthwise Herbal,” sage has a natural affinity that attracts it to fat. It is for this reason, he explains, that sage extract applied externally over a lipoma may help it dissolve. Wood continues by adding that Anthony Godfrey, a naturopathic doctor in Toronto, explains that sage helps in the balance of fluids in the body. A collection of fatty tissue may indicate an imbalance, which may be relieved by the administration of sage.

Tumeric (curcumin) – The herb turmeric contains a substance known as curcumin that, according to Dr. Demian Dressler of the Dog Cancer Blog, has been found to reduce the size of lipomas in dogs. Dr. Karen Herbst of MDJunction explains that the effect of curcumin isn’t limited to dogs. She adds that curcumin applied as a topical mask has helped some individuals decrease the size and recurrence of lipomas. Dr. Herbst suggests that you mix together a tsp. of turmeric powder with a tsp. of olive oil until it forms a soft paste. Apply the paste to the skin over the lipoma. Keep in mind that turmeric’s yellow coloring will cause a yellow dyeing of skin and clothing, so if you want to avoid this effect on clothes, cover the paste with a bandage.

Chickenweed – Chickweed is an herb commonly used in natural medicine for its ability to loosen excess mucous produced when you have a cold or flu. Dr. Marilyn Tucker of DrMT explains that chickweed is also used to draw excess water from the body, which can occur with cardiovascular disease. Chickweed, she adds, may also help to reduce accumulations of fat in the body, including lipomas. Chickweed is available at your local health or natural food store.

Thuja Occodentalis – Thuja is a member of the cedar family that is used to treats growths both on and under your skin. According to Dr. S Chidambaranathan of Dr. Cheena, thuja is a commonly used homeopathic approach to treating lipoma. The website Natural Health explains that in order to use thuja to treat lipoma, mix thuja extract with water and apply to the area over the lipoma two to three times daily. Dr. Chidambaranathan adds that if you are considering using thuja to treat lipoma, see a homeopathic healthcare professional first. Thuja is sometimes used in conjunction with other, adjunctive, natural treatments and dietary changes.

Other

Exercise:

Yoga – The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

Qigong – Is a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
