Treating Lipoma Naturally – A Holistic Approach

Holistic Approach to Lipoma TreatmentTreating Lipoma Naturally

I was just reading the Optimum Choices Holistic Lipoma Guide which focuses on how to treat lipoma naturally and wanted to share this with you all and share some of the valuable take-home message from this well written guide. You can find a link to the original guide at the bottom of this post.

The screenshot below is the table of contents for the Holistic guide. Let me go through each topic with some nice take-home messages for you. You can of course read the full guide which you should if you want an in-depth understanding of what the author is saying and want to make your own conclusions. (see link at bottom of post to the guide)

Treating Lipoma Naturally - A Holistic Approach

What are Lipomas?
I quite like the authors viewpoint. Lipomas are basically benign fatty tumors that are present because the body is trying to get rid of unwanted material. It is a sign that something is wrong and out of balance. The body is unable to break down the unwanted material through normal channels, which are the kidneys, liver, intestine …etc. The author uses the analogy of the body “sweeping” the unwanted mass of dirt (fat) under the rug (skin). Lots of supplements are not the answer. Instead, a healthy or adjusted diet with a balanced lifestyle of physical exercise and mental health and proper dietary intake is a much better solution. So really a “holistic” approach to let the body’s natural healing processes takes care of the unwanted lipoma. These principles can apply to both humans and animals and almost certainly apply to many other diseases and conditions.

Modern Medical Viewpoint of Lipomas
If a smoker smokes in a room where smoking is not allowed and a smoke alarm goes off what do you do? Do you take out the batteries and keep smoking (and break the rules) or do you stop smoking and allow the smoke alarm to stop (follow the rules)? Unless you are a smoking advocate you will probably choose for the later option which is to stop smoking right?

Well modern medical consensus tells us that as long as lipomas are not bothering you in a cosmetic or health regard, leave them alone. The holistic viewpoint is that lipomas are a “warning sign” that something is out of balance. Ignoring them is like ignoring the smoke alarm. Is the medical establishment “breaking the rules” of health(care)? Surgery, liposuction, steroid injection all address the “symptoms” and not the “cause“! And if the medical establishment is treating the symptoms and not the cause, allowing the root of the problem to persist unchecked, what consequences will that have on our health and other bodily functions – other organs, cancer, immune system, endocrine system….etc. Everything in the body is connected in some way or another. Biology is an amazing thing. change one thing, and you will send a wave of changes through your body. That’s why drugs often have side-effects – you are disturbing the delicate balance in the body and causing problems to the bodies ultimate goals of reaching homeostasis (balance). That is what holistic medicine is trying to achieve… natural balance in the body through a holistic approach (appreciating the complexity of biology).

Changing Diet to Reduce Lipomas
“Taking supplements is like putting your finger in the hole of a dike to stop the water escaping” (a Dutch folk story). Processed foods, artificial sweeteners, refined sugars, preserved foods, GMO foods are all un-natural and do not exist in nature without human intervention. They are a huge (scientifically proven) cause of many of the diseases we face today. They disrupt the delicate balance in the body and are very likely (although this still needs to be scientifically proven) a cause of the appearance of lipomas. Making healthy, natural, organic choices in your diet will take you a long way towards better health and ridding your body of unwanted lipomas. So back to the quote above: Don’t rely on a pill or drug to fix your lipoma, you will be missing the most important cause of your lipoma, and will only be treating the symptoms and not the cause.

About the Author:
As a teenager, he first noticed a lipoma appearing which grew to half a grapefruit by the time he was in his 50s. He decided to have it surgically removed at the age of 54 which he did. The lipoma grew back within 2 years to the size of a golf ball. That’s when he woke up to the realization that the medical procedure he had undertaken simply treated the symptom (removing the lipoma) and did nothing to treat the cause (unbalance in his body). He links his lipoma to a root canal therapy he had performed in his youth that left unwanted bacteria in his jaw producing toxins that we’re causing unbalance in his body. (read the original article for the story…I do not want to miss-represent the author on his personal story).

Possible Causes of Lipomas
A lipoma is caused by a very complex imbalance in the body that can come from many difference sources whether they be genetic, immunological, dietary, hormonal, lifestyle, infection or exposure to chemicals (to name a few).

Hidden Poison in Food
The author goes into great detail on hidden toxins present in soy beans. Apparently, soy beans contain poisons after cooking that are harmful to the body if not neutralized by fermentation. Ancient Chinese practices used soy as condiments, consuming them in very small quantities. Recent western diets have been over-exploiting the use of soy in foods. Over consumption of soy can create health issues in both humans and animals.

Genetically Engineered or Genetically Modified (GE or GM) foods produced by Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are often referred to as a serious health concern. These GMO are often the result of trying to conserve crops from harmful destructive pests to improve economic value of the activity (farming). Farmers introduce GMO to reduce pesticide use and get more yield from their crops. Some crops are also genetically modified to grow larger and stronger and produce better yields. What it ultimately comes down to is “Money” not “health” (unless you are starving!). Food production and consumption is a business, very much like healthcare is a business! Especially in the USA. Some countries have actually nationalized their healthcare system. Look at Europe and especially Scandinavia. They have the best healthcare systems on the planet…. but let’s get back to the topic….GMO.

Most of us are eating GMO foods on a daily basis. It’s all around us. We eat it probably with every meal if we are not conscious about the foods we eat. The problem comes down to the old and still current legal saying: “innocent until proven guilty!“. This applies to GMO and GE foods. As long as there is no evidence that it is harmful for us, its safe! Think of historical blunders that have happen. For example, 50 years ago the tobacco industry was saying that there was no scientific evidence that second-hand smoking was harmful to our health or even first hand smoking for that matter and hence deemed safe! …well we all know where that ended up…

The scary thing is that the companies that are using GE to manufacture GMO foods are the same companies that made the blunders and told us that harmful produces were safe when they were not (DDT, Agent Orange, PCB, Aspartame…to name a few).

In Conclusion
The body needs to be in a naturally balanced state in order to have the best chance of ridding it of lipomas and treating the cause instead of the symptoms. This means that the bodies immune and endocrine system (what regulates all the hormones in our body) needs to be in a healthy and balanced state. Only then can you have a chance of focusing in on the specifics of trying to rid your body of lipomas.

Well I think this review has probably been long enough and I made my point and I thank the author for this very interesting and insightful guide and making it available to the public and the lipoma community.

A nice subsequent read to this articles if you are in the mood to read more is the recent article I wrote on the use of nutraceuticals as an alternative to the traditional drugs on the market today, which treat the symptoms but not the cause. Nurtaceuticals aim to restore balance in the body by acting in a more holistic fashion on body processes. The nutraceutical I mention is also having great success on treating lipoma naturally in Asia. You can read the article here.

Metadichol (Polilex) for Treating Lipoma

Could the Nutraceutical Metadichol® (Polilex) be the answer for Lipoma Treatment?

A recent formulation is being devised for the treatment of many conditions ranging from Eczema, Psoriasis, Lipoma, wrinkles, warts, MRSA and other skin infections. Its called Metadichol® (Polilex).

Polilex for LipomaMetadichol (aka Polilex) is actually a byproduct of the agricultural industry and present in very small amounts in foods we consume on a daily basis.  Metadichol (derived from sugar cane or rice, grapes, wheat, peanuts, apple and broccoli etc) has been around for billions of years and helps the cells by interacting with nuclear receptors to boost the immune system, which is often the cause of a disease when compromised in some form, whether it be by innate factors (our makeup) or external factors (foreign organisms and molecules).

Many drugs on the market today actually treat the symptoms and not the underlying cause of the disease. This often leads to compromised immune systems that in the long run are a result of further manifestation of disease (think of antibiotics for example). Food based drugs like Metadichol are natural elements of our diets already for centuries and in concentrated form are being tested to treat diseases like Eczema, Psoriasis, Lipoma, wrinkles, warts, MRSA and other skin infections.

These types of drugs are often referred to as “Nutraceuticals” and this market is growing very fast due to the need to have alternatives to drugs that treat the symptoms and not the cause, as well as the consumer (us) becoming a lot more conscious about the foods and medications we place in our bodies. Did you know that the average drug has approximately 80 side effects? These side effects are for a reason – They are an indication that the molecule we are putting into our body is foreign and not well tolerated in the bodies naturally ecosystem. It is there to do one thing: Treat the undesired symptom. But in doing so, often triggers a range of secondary symptoms which sometimes leads to poorer health and quality of life.

Metadichol is a small molecule only 53 nm in size and can enter through the nuclear pores to interact with our genes and helps repairs the diseased cells and boost immune system function. Positive effects for Metadichol have been documented formalaria, acne, eczema, ganglion, lipoma, MRSA, wound healing, fungal infections, psoriasis, hair growth, wrinkles, kidney disease, regulates glucose, insulin resistance, Diabetes type 2, Cholesterol, improved lipid profiles, hypertension, kidney disease, heart disease, reduced protein oxidation or oxidative stress, TNF a – significant immune system function, and increases serum vitamin C.

Polilex for Lipoma Treatment

Patent: Metadichol® liquid and gel nanoparticle formulations (US 20140275285 A1)

Dr. Raghavan states on his linkedIn profile: “Our third patent (referring to Metadichol) published Sept 18th 2014 received notice of allowance on Oct 21 st 2014 and will appear as a full patent in Feb 2015

An image (Figure 8) from the Patent link above shows the complete disappearance of a Lipoma on a dog with Metadichol gel application within 30 days. (View high quality image source)

Metadichol for Lipoma in Dogs

FIG. 8 shows treatment of gel on a dog with lipoma that developed into a open skin tumor infection.



A quick Pubmed search did not return any results for “Metadichol” or “Polilex” so this is very new and scientific publication are probably being written and will emerge in 2015.

Just yesterday, I came across a great post title <New Nutraceutical, Metadichol® – Breathtaking Results!> on a blog called written by Mark Pegram – the author describes some amazing successes with Metadichol and says that this product has only been on the market since the last part of 2014 in Southeast Asia with some amazing reports of healing going on. And interestingly not a single side effect has been recorded to date.

The author tried the product on his dog and I quote:

“Also, the lipomas are shrinking on our 13 year old dog. We simply spray a couple of sprays on her food every day.”

A quote from the author was particularly interesting to me:

“It would be interesting if the Metadichol® is also renewing the health of our microbiome and homeostasis is reached in the body through this symbiotic relationship.”

You see, not only do I run Lipoma NET and try to help the Lipoma community get access to quality information and research about lipoma and its treatment options, I also run the Cystic Fibrosis community at and run the largest community for CF which was founded back in 1996. Metadichol sounds like it could have serious benefits to CF sufferers as their GI biomes are completely destroyed due to constant antibiotic therapy treatments which over time completely destroys the microbioms in the gastric track and cause so many problems.

So there you have it. My first post and encounter of the new nutraceutical Metadichol. I hope to update you on more about this new therapy candidate as the research emerges. Please comment below and let me know what you think! And of course if you have any questions. Also join my newsletter where I will bring all my most important publication in the one place.

I will leave you with this quote from  Dr. Stephen De Felice “One good nutraceutical can wipe out the drugs.”

To your Health!

Water Fasting to Treat Lipoma

Water Fasting for LipomaSome people are having success treating their lipomas with an age-old cleansing technique: Water Fasting. Water fasting is a type of fasting where only water is consumed for an extended period of time. Water fasting is a common component of detox diets and other “cleaning” associated diets.

There is very little scientific evidence behind it in humans, but numerous mouse studies have had interesting results:

– Effect of intermittent fasting on prostate cancer tumor growth in a mouse model – 2010.
– Fasting weakens cancer in mice – 2012.

It is quite a new phenomenon and approach in the world of lipoma treatment. There are significant risks to fasting though and you should consult your physician before doing one. If you do decide to do one in order to treat your lipoma, start with short cycles of a 1-3 days in a row and keep a close what on the size of your lipomas. A very useful discussion to read is located over on and I would advise anyone wanting to do a water fast as a treatment option for lipoma go over there and ready the discussion. A quote from Matt (the Administrator of states:

“Wow, this sounds very interesting. I must say I’ve noticed that my lipomas have gotten softer while I have sometimes eaten only salads for a while but I have never thought it would be the way to cure my lipomas? And to do that just in two weeks sounds astonishing! I think it’s possible there’s some truth behind it though…”

Lipoma Water FastingHaving a clean diet free of unprocessed foods, animal proteins, bad carbohydrates and fats and lots of water combined with exercise and supplements to help in micronutrients distribution and storage can go a long way in affecting lipomas since they as simple lumps of fat under the skin. Like any fat in the body, adjustments in lifestyle, diet, exercise, stress…etc will have an effect of fat in the body.

Also, if you have not done so already, watch this video I posted yesterday on water fasting.

Hope this post has been helpful for you to read. Hit me up with any comments or question below if you have them.

Fasting to Eliminate Lipoma

David talks about how he fasted for 28 days in order to treat his many lipomas. He discusses why he did this to try to eliminate his lipomas but also become healthier and more relaxed. He explains why he chose to fast, and what his experience was like. Contradictory to not eating, David did not feel hungry and felt “refreshed” and “cleansed”. David watched a documentary about “Fasting as a Cure” for disease and decided to try this for his lipomas. Interesting approach!

Lipoma Pain

Most medically vetted articles will say that lipomas do not usually cause pain. However, reports from the community of lipoma sufferers suggest that pain is actually quite a common occurrence. Whether pain is felt or not really will depend on the location of the lipoma and its proximity to nerves and blood vessels as well as joints and of course its size.

Some also say that lipomas can cause itching and can emit foul smell. And for some people, painful lipomas can be a serious concern while sleeping. If a painful lipoma is located on your back, shoulder or thigh, it can cause a lot of pain in a sleeping position or while moving in your sleep. These are all valid claims but often overlooked or undermined by medical professionals.

If a lipoma causes pain or discomfort, it is important that you seek medical advice and have it checked out by a doctor. As the lipoma grows, if pain is felt it probably means that its growing into an area were nerves maybe present and this can be a health concern if the lipoma continues to grow.

Apricot seed for lipomaThere have been claims that apricot seeds can help to alleviate the pain from a lipoma. Before you try apricot seeds, make sure you talk to your doctor as these can have serious side effects if not taken correctly. A quick google search on the topic will return tones of information as apricot seeds are commonly used to treat cancer as a natural remedy. Start with reading what is on WebMD regarding apricot seeds and then move on to read a discussion and experiment with apricot seeds to relieve lipoma pain here.

A lot still needs to be studies and learned on the use of apricot seeds to treat lipoma. If you want to try it, make sure you start with a low dose (1-2 seeds) and only increase the dose once a week to give your body plenty of time to adjust and emit any side effects (if any). Let us all know below in the comment section if apricot seeds have helped you treat your lipomas!

There are also generic pain relieving gels that you can use to rid the pain of a lipoma but these can have undesired effects if taken for too long. Not to mention that extended use of gels may eventually wear off the effects of relieving pain. You either need to take more or need to change the gel to some other pain-killer. These gels can be purchased from your local pharmacy and ask your pharmacist for any advice on getting gels to relieve lipoma pain.
