As with any health complaint or medical condition prevention and treatment can always start by looking at our lifestyle and diet. The presence of a lipoma is a relatively common condition, classified as a fatty lump found just below the skins surface. They are harmless and generally painless growths of fat cells, which are more often than none either left alone or removed surgically if they become bothersome.
Upon diagnosis, most health professionals will tend to stir the patient away from surgery. This is perhaps due to the non serious nature of a lipoma, but also as a result of the many herbal remedies than have now proven to be just as effective.
There are more and more people opting for the more natural approach when it comes to treating health complaints and in nearly all cases it is down to what we put in our bodies that can make all the difference to the way with live and just how healthy our bodies are. Lipomas, although thought to be primarily inherited, can develop in just about any area of the body but the cause is what continues to be unclear; however, many studies show it is due to diet and poor elimination system. Some herbal treatments have been found to be very effective in treating Lipoma.
Herbal Treatments For Lipoma
Apple Cider Vinegar
A popular home remedy is to take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before going to bed. After a couple of weeks many report that their lipomas’ have shrunken in size.
Some of the most effective herbal treatments of lipomas include the herb Tumeric or Circumin. Experts believe that in a powdered form turmeric mixed with olive oil has dramatic healing properties. By applying this herbal mixture to the fatty lumps the appearance of the lipoma’s is said to soften and even reduce in size. 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.
Likewise, the herb Chickweed, available in health shops as an herbal supplement is also known to be effective in the reduction in size of a lipoma. Herbs are renowned for detoxing and healing the body and given that lipomas are a result of a fatty deposit, certain herbs can be used to help the body filter and break down those fats that otherwise get left behind and form clusters in and around the body.
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.
Thuja is a member of the cedar family that is used to treats growths both on and under your skin and can be used to treat lipoma. Mix thuja extract with water and apply to the area over the lipoma two to three times daily.
