Turmeric + Aloe Vera worked like magic on my lipoma: 3 days!
I found this tip from some Indian naturopath: Mix a bit of turmeric with a bit of aloe vera gel and wrap thick layer well over lipoma with bandage and leave on lipoma for approximately 6-8 hours a day/ night (mine was on back of ear, around 1 cm big, had it for over a year- it was quite difficult to affix bandage with mixture there, but not impossible).
Day 2: I could feel it is getting "inflamed" and started being painful and warm- I was as worried to develop abscess on my head, as I was aware that inflammation is probably the only way to drain that gross growth which look horrible.
Day 3 was quite painful, very warm even part of my face, so I realised I can try to squeeze it- and it burst and I drained it VERY WELL and bye bye gross growth!
Note: After I remove T+AV mix, rinse and splash bit more aloe and leave it.
Wound after care (oh yes was super worried to not cause some major infection): Saline water rinse, tea tree oil and (once it closed a bit) more aloe on wound.
This worked like magic- today is day 4: Mini wound is healing great. I am free of lipoma.
Indian naturopath said it takes 7 days, but it was 3 for me to get it off...
Love natural healing.
I found a fatty growth over one of my ribs the size of a 50 cent piece. I take about 3,000 mg of turmeric per day for general inflammation. I made a paste with olive oil and a capsule of turmeric and applied it to the fatty growth daily and completely covered it with a band aid. I continued this for 7 days. I would remove band aid and clean area and immediately reapply so that it was continually in contact for the 7 day period. After the 7 days it was gone.
If you make a thick paste with dried turmeric (we call it saffron in Trinidad) with olive oil and paste it over the lipoma, it totally disappears and leaves no trace. (You can cover it with tissue or a plaster), My friend did it on his ear and I did it for my daughter who is 10. Both of them were told they had to undergo surgery. I am ecstatic to report no surgery needed. My daughters lipoma was 2.2cm. 2015 July 05
Re lipoma's, I had two on my back for two years. Two months ago one started getting large and full and a bit annoying. A doctor suggested that I get it surgically removed (for asthetic purposes). I then discussed it with the wonderful owner of my health food store who suggested turmeric as a possible remedy, so I bought a bottle. I dont know if he had expected me to take the turmeric internally, but all I did was prick one capsule with a pin and put a dab of the turmeric oil on each lipoma.
Coincedently, however, I simultaneously started taking raw Apple Cider Vinegar the same day, and the following night I put a diluted dab of the ACV on my lipoma instead of the turmeric. Hense, I cant be sure which one 'did the trick', but to my surprise, within 2 days (when I reached back to 'scratch' my itchy lipoma) it opened up and emptied out quite a lot of a white substance! I then helped the process along that night by gently applying pressure w/ a tissue against it to empty it even more. They are both now flat and barely visable at all, so... Surgery was avoided! (Yay! =o) However, I can still feel an occasional 'tingle' or 'itch' from the area, so whatever caused the lipoma's in the first place may still be 'alive and well'. Perhaps I will put some more turmeric and/or ACV on the area again and see what happens. Anyway... Hope this helps others looking for non-surgical solutions?
