How To Get Rid of Fat Deposits: Q&A
Causes and Cures?
01/10/2008: Nicole from Wilmington, NC: "re: Fatty Ball Deposits. i was wondering how do you get them and why exactly this happens. i had a friend who had so many it scared me for their own well being. He said it was heritage. "The only was to get surgery, but is not worth it" he said. My concern is can it get worse? Is it contagious? Can it cause health problems in the future? also would his children carry on the same problem? I have never encountered anything like this so im very concerned exactly what it is? Please help..."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Nicole: It appears to be a demoid cysts or lipomas, which both are considered benign, but some can become malignant, and where lipomas become liposarcomas, which is cancer. I am assuming of course, that the fatty deposit balls appear all over the body and not limited to any part of the body, as it might be other conditions not those mentioned here.
Most skin growths, in my opinion are a result of a combination of calcium, excess lipids, and viruses, which leads to the condition.
Interestingly these assumed viruses can indirectly be "inherited", not by genes, but more by infection during the development of fetus. Cancer viruses can either be infectious or has low infectious or none at all. The range is wide here. A more infectious cancer virus is the human papilloma viruses, which can lead to cancer and are usually sexually transmitted.
A possible remedy might be to reduce the calcium, fatty deposit and virus, both by through diets and topical applications. A topical application that I am experimenting, more like in prevention but might be of some use in reduction, is the use of zinc xylitol base, where zinc chloride is about 0.5%-1% plus 20% xylitol, with 10% DMSO (optional), and the rest is water. It was done actually to reduce the itching caused by these fatty deposit balls along the skin but if the virus is killed, it might be possible for some reduction in these condition.
Certain alkalization that reduces excess calcium such as 2 tablespoon of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water, with 5 drops of 10% sodium thiosulfate (optional in reducing more calcium and some toxins) taken twice a day may be helpful too.
Sometimes I have seen some people with this condition and upon blood test was found to have excess fats in the system, and sometimes hard fats. These can be helped to some extent by adding some fat emulsifiers, such as a tablespoon of granulated lecithin mixed in the food. Certain dietary excess fats needs to be reduce, especially the ones I see the most is the processed oils from bakery products, vegetable oils and margarine, that seemed to cause a great deal of problem specifically the partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, hydrogenated vegetable oils and high temperatue cooking of low boiling temperature vegetable oils. The other thing I found especially interesting is aspartame, fructose and ice cream which caused large fatty deposit balls within a matter of days of eating them in, especially the ice cream and the fructose (corn syrup).
If the above remedy were helped based on virus hypothesis (from xylitol and zinc topical applications), than zinc gluconate supplementation, vanadium, chromium, b complex, lysine and arginine may further the reduction.
If worse comes to worse, limiting their spread is possible (if they are infectious) by using topical zinc and xylitol solution. However, the zinc can be zinc acetate (which is more user friendly), or zinc chloride (which is more stinging to the skin - but cheaper) with a xylitol, which will prevent virus from attaching to healthy cells. Generally these conditions in dermatology considers it to be benign, until of course, they suddenly become malignant. In conventional medicine, they don't think its infectious at all, but personally I don't want to assume, so I'd rather experiment and use the zinc xylitol solution to see if it works. If it works, then its a virus and there is a chance of infectivity. The ones I am currently experimenting on these fatty deposits, ARE infectious, as they cause itching and there is the presence of a biofilm, which is sticky to the touch.
I am currently looking for a remedy to reduce these problems more effectively and this is what I am currently doing, so the information here is still all preliminary."
How Can I Remove Them?
10/09/2006: Brandon from Bellevue, NE: "I am emailing because I couldn't find a cure or cause of what a dermatologist called "fat deposits." They're just little circular balls of fat underneath the surface of my skin. I've had them for a couple of years (one on my arm and three on my thighs). There is a slight pain when I push on them but nothing serious. I was wondering if anyone had any idea as to what this is and how to get rid of it? Thanks."
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Dear Brandon: It might not help but I used some acetone 100%, not the nail polish remover kind since it is somewhat weaker, to remove some excess fats deep in my skin pores for cleaning. Most scientists in their laboratories tend to use chloroform (ouch!) in certain skin specimens to remove the oil. I have used it too, but they do definitely cause skin burning and not recommended.
The best ways, I think, is just to take a bath with white vinegar as it is well known for removing oils in the skin or use vinegar rubbing as the possibly the safest solution I can think of to remove excess oil, and eat plenty of granulated lecithin 2 tablespoon with every meal to emulsify the fat and remove them in the long term. I appears that in the past you may have taken to or eaten high fatty foods and that could have caused fatty buildup."
