Natural Herbs for Lipoma

Lipomas are fatty deposits that build up beneath the skin. In the common of cases they are totally benign, but the protruding lump that they form can be fairly unsightly. They are soft and can be moved about under the skin and most commonly appear on the back, neck, shoulders and thighs. They are usually painless, but may cause pain if they develop also large and exert pressure on any nerves.

The first step is to change your diet and reduce your fat eating. While there is no supporting proof that too much fat in the diet can cause lipomas, it still makes sense to reduce fats in the diet as lipomas are formed by fatty tissue. Your overall health will also improve with the reduction in fats from your diet and you may also end up losing weight as an additional bonus. So take away fatty meats such as pork and beef from your diet and eat only lean meat such as fish and poultry.

Certain Natural Herbs for Lipoma and natural remedies are available that claim to lower fat levels. One such fat burner is green tea. Drinking lots of green tea will also provide your body with plenty of antioxidants that can help protect your body from the harmful effects of free radicals. Another herbal fat burner that has been used for centuries in traditional Indian medication is Indian bedellium. It is reputed to enhance thyroid activity and for this reason shouldn’t be taken by any person with a thyroid condition.

You can use any of these Natural Herbs along with the dietary changes and regular exercise to decrease fat levels in your body. In addition to these steps you should also take steps to boost your body’s immune system.  This will allow your body to deal more successfully with toxins which may be one of the culprits responsible for lipoma. Immune boosters such as Echinacea can help accomplish this but should not be taken for more that 4 to 6 weeks.

Other home remedies and Herbs for Lipoma that can be used include Castor Oil and flaxseed oil. Different people swear by castor oil, saying that regular application on the lipoma has helped to reduce the size and in some cases yet get rid of the offending swelling. Others swear by flaxseed oil with its high omega-3 content that may help to stop the growth of fatty tissue.
