4 out of 5 stars

Hello Folks, first of all I would like to thank everyone for the great posts and feed back here. I've found many useful remedies here. I am currently in a process of treating my xanthelasma spots with garlic. I have two spots, one under each eye. The one is about 1.5cm long by 0.5mm wide; the other one is about 0.5cm long by 0.3mm wide. The first one appeared about 5 years ago and it slowly grew to the size I mentioned above, the other one appeared in a mean time. The reason for mine is very high cholesterol readings 9.6 (European measurements) where 5.2 is the acceptable benchmark. I didn't want to start taking any meds so I began looking for other natural alternatives. I am currently doing the liver cleanse program. I've done 4 cleanses so far. I am planning to do a few more before I get my blood tested again to see if the results are better. Anyways, I am in a day four of applying row garlic on my xanths and would like to point out something here for the people who haven't done it yet and may be confused as I was. We learn as we go. I've read people's comments in here and was wondering why I am not getting the same results. I was doing it for 3 days, and not getting to the point where the skin burns. First I cut the clove to halves and applied to the spots for 10 min. then 20 min. twice a day; it didn't work, It didn't even sting much. Then I chopped the garlic - a little better, but still not enough. Then on the third day, I've decided to go out and buy a different garlic. I bought 3 different kinds and tried it out. I've noticed that the sting and burn sensation was all different. Finally I picked the one that stings the most and continue using just that one. In a few applications in just one day my eyes got dark red and swollen and finally felt that something is working there. So for those who wrote in here that garlic did not work for them I'll put this in caps: IF YOU DON'T GET THE BURN AND STING SENSATION CHANGE THE GARLIC DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. Apparently the garlic is not the same around the globe. If I stayed with the first brand of garlic that I had, I wouldn't have seen any results at all. So on my day 4 now, which is actually day 1 with the strong garlic I am defiantly seeing a difference. I'll report back in a few days with the results.

So I noticed you posted in January. Have you gotten any positive results yet? I have two spots on the upper eyelid of each and I have tried garlic as well and didn't really notice improvement. But, I saw your post and wanted to thank you for the advise on trying different garlic's until you feel the burn. I will try this and hope for removal. Please let us all know how your process is going.

Hello Ladybug, sorry for the late respond. Yes, it did get better. It's about 50% of what it was initially. I am also doing liver flashes once a month and drink ACV tonic daily, so I am not quite sure which helps the most. I did blood test last month and my cholesterol readings did move in the right direction, so I'll continue doing it until I am fully satisfied. I don't know if your cause for the little buggers is high cholesterol, but I will suggest you doing flushes and Apple Cider Vinegar as well and you'll defiantly see improvement not only for the xanths, but for your overall health. I am planning to do the garlic one more time, but would like to get my readings in norm first, so maybe next year. Good luck and don't give up :-) .....

P.S. If you hate the taste of Epsom salt as much as I do, you can substitute the water with grapefruit juice or mix it half water / half juice and it makes it a lot easy to drink.

I have read your lil problem about xanthelasma and I can prove that it's giving me some respite and cure for this disease. Mine is found on the corner upper right side on my nose cholesterol and lipids are fine and I think my xanthelasma was caused by too much stress and depression. its been 4 years now that my xanthe was under control due to my using garlic. I used just plain garlic by mashing it finely until juices comes out.. then I washed the affected area patted it dry with clean towel then prepare a aid for cuts where I cut a small plain tape enough to cover a lil part of a mashed garlic then taped it on the affected area . I did it in the morning until the following morning, then removed the tape, wash the affected area gently.. then at night I will do it again ..just tiny part of the mashed garlic, taped it on the affected area again until the following have to do it until the skin is red and burning ..then once it's red and burning, leave it to dry and dried skin together with the xanthe will fall off. The yellow fat is still there inside the skin but its no longer growing but under control. and altho the yellow fat can be seen deep down under the skin it doesnt worry me because it looks smooth and no bumps as I'm wearing eyeglasses and eye shadows. and as many readers here told me that xanthe will come back any time soon, I'm trying not to be stress and depressed. It's been 4 years now that xanthe hasn't grown back yet..Thank you for the home remedy..Garlic..

Garlic should burn. It should turn red. Since Xanth is under skin, not sure how it will actually go away. I just had CO2 laser under both affected eyes. Waiting to see results. Only been 3 days. Very red and swollen. Might try garlic for too lids. Hopeful!
