Lipomas are soft fatty deposits that range from about the size of a garden pea to larger that form under the surface of the skin. They can grow, but are generally considered harmless healthwise. The direct cause of a lipoma is still considered to be a toxic liver and why we get them is generally put down to being a way the body can eliminate toxins due to a clogged liver. But treating them is something which has taken up interest, particularly for those interested in natural remedies and who prefer to use herbal cures as opposed to the more traditional surgical approach.
Known worldwide for its valuable detoxifying properties, green tea is now a popular choice when it comes to treating lipomas. Green tea is without a doubt a fantastic fat burner, so what better dietary habit to adopt than a regular dose of green tea on a daily basis. By including green tea as part of your daily intake, the bodys metabolism increases which in term helps to burn off fat and potentially can keep those lipomas at bay.
As well as using green tea as part of your treatment plan for lipomas there are also several dietary changes you can make. Eating a healthy diet is paramount to living a healthy life and it could not be truer when we hear the phrase you are what you eat. Since lipomas consist of fatty lumps it is perhaps a good idea to look at the most obvious food choice and minimize the intake of fat. By reducing the volume of fatty foods you intake you will ultimately contribute to the prevention of more lipomas from developing.
Another part of natural lipoma treatments is to cleanse the liver by way of herbs or doing a liver flush. You can take herbs internally or by making poultices with them and covering with bandages. You can find more information about using herbs for lipoma treatments here.
