Remedies for Lipoma

08/08/2011: Anonymous from Anonymous: "Hi Ted,
What my husband have is called LIPOMA on the back of his neck.

Lipoma is a lump that consist of mainly faty tissue inside. You are so knowledgeable about many things that im sure you have a remedy! This is why I asked you. The lump has grown a bit since last year and we do not have insurance so I was wondering if you could let me know of a natural remedy to use topically on the lump to maybe help dissolve some fat inside and reduce the size and maybe even stunt the growth of it so it does not get any bigger!"

08/08/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "It is considered a benign cancer, but caused probably some injury sustained in that area. Most cancer that goes on to malignant starts out this way, and I just treated them with the same remedies. They are treated the same in remedies but language-wise we make the difference, on benign and malignant.

My classification is based on remedies (and my confusion), is I tend to say Lymphoma and Lipoma the same words but used very dfferently. So I can call a lymphoma, but it's either in initial stages or active stage. Initial stages of all cancer begins with some sort of injury (as in bruises, deep cuts, cysts, chemical damage, even uric acid crystals cause cellular damage) but somehow it doesn't go beyond that because the immune system was strong enough to block the cancer from becoming malignant, because usually the blood sugar level is not high enough. It just makes naming a bit more easier for me, because my classification is based on remedies being treated for a condition(s). If we make one cancer type with different words for each depending on benign and malignant, we think it is safe in the benign, but if we combined that in to Lipoma and Lymphoma, as initial stages (in active) and final stages (active) we would view a benign as a potential threat. That's why my differences. Any way I will call it lipoma to keep in line with how we call it anyway.

You therefore would use DMSO/Castor oil/Clove oil the same. And you would use aloe vera oil and/or butyric acid, the same too. I would also treat this as a precondition to cancer, and used lysine and things I mentioned the same too. The only differences is that in a malignant cancer, is the issue of liver toxicity from cancer cells toxins, in which case milk thistle and thunbergia is considered.

There is one more thing of getting rid of the mass, bromelain. I used bromelain 10%, 6500 GDU type, in its 100% bromelain form. That is actually 10 times stronger (at least) then a meat tenderizer. In breaking down the proteins which causing the mass of tissues. I used for example 1/4 teaspoon mixed in a glass of water, three or four times a day. The 90% is glycine, and 10% is bromelain. So this mixture is used for treatment of cancer, exception being is prostate cancer, which we don't use glycine. "

08/08/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The easiest right now is DMSO mixed with castor oil and clove oil, which is proven to be effective. The mixture is as follows:

  • DMSO 70%
  • Castor oil 25%
  • Clove oil 5%

This can be applied as many times as needed. If the solution is too hot, you can reduce clove oil, if it is not effective, you can increase clove oil.

There is one important element, cellular regeneration to normal cells, which needs butyric acid and aloe vera oil. Aloe vera oils are hard to find and butyric acid smells like rancid butter. These two need to be applied too so cancer gets converted to normal cells.

People with cancer are low in B3 niacinamide and selenium. B3 is 300 mg x 10, and Selenium at 200 x 2, is a safe dose, the other is Lysine 1000 mg x 4, hourly dose, in morning. and 1000 mg x 4, hourly dose, in evening for at least 2-3 days, thereafter is reduced to dose you find acceptable--at least 1000 x 3. It is said that green tea extract is also effective, 250 mg x 2 at least. I try to get minimum of supplements so it won't cost a lot, and effective, and we can make changes based on feedback.


08/12/2011: Tms71 from Greenwich, Ct replies: "Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic cells of the immune system. A lipoma a non-cancerous tumor of lipid cells. One is not a different stage of the other. Lymphoma for lymph cells, lipoma for lipid cells. It is not generally believed that lipomas can become malignant."

08/21/2011: Bob from Attica, Ny replies: "I just read about IP6 with niacin (the real kind that causes your skin to flush) to increase absorbancy and effectiveness. It's all natural, actually contained in small amounts in the bran of things like oats. However it's one of things that is hard to consume in large enough quantities through foods because much of it is destroyed during processing. In this case supplementation is better. A dose of 1000mg of IP6 with niacin daily has shown to stop tumors in their tracks. I am not surprised by this as niacin itself has been touted recently by researchers and alternative doctors to be a very effective weapon against cancer without the nasty side effects of drugs.... So together they would be a 1-2-punch. I am not familiar with your form of cancer, but it may very be a wonderful addition in your arsenal against it."

09/25/2012: Healthy248 from Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada replies: "Hi! Ted... I hope this feedback finds you, healthy and well.

I have some feedback for the Dmso, Castor Oil and clove treatment you suggested (75% DMSO, 25% Castor Oil, 5% clove oil) for the Lipoma mass (4x3 inch X 3/4 in. deep) on my neck, ( Lipoma started after a herniated disk operation about 13 or 14 years ago) treatment seemed to be working, but 4 days into it, (I developed a wake me up from a dead sleep)..incessantly itching red burning rash that is hot to the touch, I have tried all manner of concoctions to stop the itching, burning, and the hot red skin. Nothing seems to work for very long. The last thing I tried was a (olive oil & clove) mixture made to create clove oil. It worked the best but did nothing to fix the issue. Almost all fixes I apply make it burn worse, except coconut oil and the clove oil mix. What other fixes might you suggest. I have been suffering over the past few years with some allergy like issues especially a day or so after the jets fly overhead leaving their jet plumes behind. Dry itchy weaping eyes. We thought it might be contact dermatitis, not conclusive. Steriods like prednasone works, but I cannot live on those. Food allergies was next but no concrete red flags there either, but have stopped most of my sugar, wheat, softdrinks, table salt, processed foods etc. Intake. But I do cheat ocassionally and it lets me know. Is it possible that this is a histimine issue, what is your take on this. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you, Karl"

Fatty Ball Deposits

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 Fat deposits?

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."
