Lugol's Iodine.

An Earth Clinic reader reports that topical application of Lugol's Iodine, shrank his wife's lipoma.

Lugol's Iodine for a Lipoma Instructions

Use only lugol's iodine and not another type of iodine.  Lugol's comes in 3% and 5% bottles. Amazon will not allow sellers to post 5% concentrations  on its site, but you can easily find 2% and 3% lugol's online.

The stronger the percentage of lugol's the less you need. Even though the Earth Clinic poster did not specify the concentration, we're guessing he used 3% Lugol's Iodine.

Apply a couple of drops of lugol's to your lipoma.

Caution: Lugol's Iodine will stain! Be very careful applying the drops of lugol's. Wait until it dries before putting on clothes.

Apply the tincture twice a day.

What Brand of Lugol's is Best?

The top brand in the USA is J. Crow's. They have been selling Lugol's for several decades and is a highly-rated brand. You can find them on Amazon.

I went to the dermatologist about a firm, solid lump on my arm. He said it was a lipoma and I could have surgery to remove it. Before I did something invasive- I tried out some natural remedies - none worked - till I tried painting Lugol's iodine on the lipoma. It started working immediately. The lump did not come back!

Patti - Thanks for sharing your testimony. I've been researching for years for a natural remedy because I don't want to go the surgical removal route either.

May I ask what was the size of your lipoma and approximately how long it took for it to go away? The lipoma on my back is about 2 inches. Just trying to get an idea of how long it would take for me. I know it will vary by each person. Also, what percentage of the iodine did you use and how much per day?

How often did you apply the iodine and how long did it take to get rid of it?

How big was your lipoma?

I have a 2" lipoma in my neck and under my tongue. I purchases J. Crow's Lugol's Iodine and am hopeful it will help. I am covering the area on the outside of my neck for now. Can I apply it to the area under the tongue? Will this affect my thyroid?

My wife had a lipoma on her back and after a bit or research decided to treat it by painting 3% lugol's iodine on it twice per day for a few days with a Qtip. Each day it got smaller and smaller until it was gone! I would consider giving this a try.

Thank you for sharing your wife's success story. How big was her lipoma? How long did it take before she began to see results?
