What is a lipoma?
A lipoma is a slow growing benign tumor composed of fat found in the subcutaneous tissues, just below the skin. Lipomas are most often found on the torso, neck and upper thighs and arms where there is plenty of fatty tissue. However, they have also been found growing inside body organs such as the heart, brain and lungs.
Lipomas occur in 1% of the population and can occur at any age, although most arise around middle age, and are seen predominately in women.
Lipomatosis is a diagnosis of multiple lipomas and affects mainly men.
What causes lipomas?
The tendency to develop lipomas is hereditary and they are also more common in the overweight and the old. They are more common in people with a fatty liver. Sometimes, lipomas can grow after an injury in the affected area.
What are the signs of lipomas?
Lipomas can be felt under the skin as soft smooth lumps and have a rubbery consistency. They can grow to a large size. Symptoms do not generally involve pain,however, the lipoma may be itchy. They are not tender and move easily with finger pressure.
What is the treatment?
Generally, there is no treatment necessary as lipomas are not cancerous growths. However they may be unsightly and grow to a large size. Your doctor may easily surgically remove the lipoma if it becomes painful, infected or increases in size. Selenium supplements may help to reduce the growth of lipomas. If the patient is overweight or has been exposed to toxins, a raw juice fast and a detox regime consisting of detox herbs and a liver tonic are advised.
Recommended supplements for lipomas
Take 1-2 capsules daily with food. Selenium supplements may help to reduce the growth of lipomas.

Gallbladder disease and lipomas are closely associated, and both are likely to arise from consuming a diet high in carbohydrates, processed foods, industrial seed oils, and sugars.
To resolve your lipomas, remove all the foods that probably contributed to them forming as the first strategy.
while you work towards this to become your established diet, we recommend you begin taking Ox Bile – 1 to 2 capsules at every meal, Livatone Liver Tonic – 2 capsules twice daily, NAC – 2 capsules twice daily, well away from food with a large glass of water to avoid temporary stomach irritation, and Selenium – 1 capsule daily, all for good detoxification.
Lipomas are encapsulated pockets of fats, with a cellular structure not a biofilm as these are produced by bacteria and viruses to safeguard themselves.
