Re: Something for large lipomas?

Home Forums Herb discussion Something for large lipomas? Re: Something for large lipomas?


I see lipomas as more of a symptom of what we would call phlegm or damp heat issues in Chinese medicine (probably translates best to inflammation in western med but not exactly). You can treat the underlying issues but usually the ones that are there do not go away. I have not found an herbal which works well for lipomas. There are some moxa/acupuncture techniques that will sometimes shrink them a little but it usually needs to be ongoing treatments and it doesn’t always work. Generally I just leave them and work on balancing to the body to prevent new ones.
