I turned vegan just before I started using fulvic minerals. I been thinking that it is the fulvic minerals that have been shrinking my remaining lipoma and made the other one disappear but started eating meat again nearly a week ago. Perhaps I am wrong and that it is the healthy vegan diet or perhaps it is both. I really haven't felt good at all since I went back to eating meat. I feel good this morning and haven't ate any since lunch yesterday. I have a strong feeling that I've taken a step backwards and that I should return to vegan. I've also thought about eating raw eggs instead of meat.heathercory wrote:Hi Matt,
Cleaning out my gut has had best the effect for me. The domino effect is that the liver has less cleaning up to do, and can process toxins better.
Topical solutions with turmeric and castor oil help reduce, but it wasn't until I stuck to a decent diet that I've seen better results.
Most recently, I've gone vegan (easier than it sounds!), and I feel so much better. It's been just over a month without any animal products, and I haven't had any re-growths.
The book on the site also advocates natural methods, and as I and others have said, it's such an individual thing - everyone's body responds differently. For some, one trip to the surgeon, and it's all over. For others, surgery is not the end, as they keep recurring. Yet others have success with a vitamin regime.
I wish everyone the best in their self-education and quest to conquer this.

The only thing I noticed was that it reminded me of goldenseal. I am suspecting that maybe the tongkat ali I been taking is giving me some negative side effects. I noticed my gums bled while brushing my teeth and my recovery was very slow. It may be unrelated so I will have to try taking it again after a while and see if the effects return to help confirm that if at all. I resumed taking maca yesterday and plan to take a heaping tablespoon of 6x again today. I almost forgot I had a back ache in my kidney area that hurt too. It seemed to go away the same time my muscles recovered from the extreme workout I had 5 days ago though. I am planning on running hard again today and doing intervals. Hopefully I will not have the recovery problem again. I am also planning on eating less meat and eating more vegan and have already cut down on meat consumption. Considering eliminating meat and substituting eggs if the recovery problem happens again and if that don't work going back to full vegan. My best guess is that it's the 200x tongkat and my second is that it was coincidence and I came down with a light bug or something. Third guess is eating meat. Of course it's probably a combination but I'm talking about the main cause. I been keeping up on my shilajit and fulvic acid. Yesterday I took a good 1/8th teaspoon of fulvic acid twice but no shilajit. The lypoma doesn't hurt today. Yesterday there was lots of swelling around it that is all gone. The lump still feels the same size as a few days ago. It will be interesting to see if I can run just as hard as 5 days ago without the tongkat.
I took Tribulus Terrestris for almost 2 years, and as I told you, I felt nothing. I am a natural bodybuilder, and that supplement I took to keep hormone levels. You know that testosterone decreases with age, and supposedly the tribulus helps maintain or increase those levels.
So you need not feel anything. You need not see any change. When you turn 30 years your achievements in weight training are decreasing. You keep training more and lifting more weight, but you get fewer results. It is because the levels of these hormones are falling.
Supposedly if you take tríbulos help continue as before. Getting the same results. You do not get more, but you do not lose performance over time.
This clarification has nothing to do with lipomas. But since you asked, I answer it.
While both tribulus and tongkat are supposed to work for boosting testosterone. Maca is supposed to benefit all hormones and is also recognized as a superfood (like spirulina and chlorella). Probably the reason it seems like it's taken by more women than men. Tribulus reminds me of golden seal. My instincts tell me it is probably an immune system booster or a well being tonic like golden seal.
I took an extra day of recovery and did intervals at the six day mark. Or at least I did two of them. My first one was a mere 25 yard sprint climb to the top of a mountain and it felt good. My second was 100 yards and was also uphill after walking down one and the third one I had planned to be 200 yards after running downhill for nearly a half mile but on the second sprint stride I pulled a muscle and had to limp the rest of the way home.
After finding Orange juice or salt water having no effect on relief I started researching on the Internet. It was the first time I had ever run in the middle of the day and it was a good 110 degrees. I came across an article on pickle juice and how it became widely recognized in sports after it was reported to be used by an inferior team beat I think it was the Dallas Cowboys on a really hot day. After more reading I discovered it was supposed to be the acidic acid which is the same acid in vinegar. After learning this I took a swig of cider vinegar and noticed an instant improvement. By the end of the day I felt ok and walked the same route. I had just taken a swig of cider vinegar and chased it down with mineral water before my workout. I find this is the best way to take it. I lost my footing that day and strained the same muscle and when I got home I tried the vinegar but this time there was no instant relief but I did feel better the next day. It's been a few days and I haven't had time to workout for a couple days. I been taking lots of shilajit and sometimes alternating it with fulvic acid. I been also trying to consume more cider vinegar.
I read that citric acid was supposed to make fulvic acid work better on the "Build Your Own Supplement Store" on Ebay but it seems like cider vinegar does the same thing and is better for muscle cramps. On the expensive fulvic mineral supplement I took citric acid was one of the main ingredients. I believe it was listed right after water.
My lipoma is still shrinking. I been staying at least 80% and trying to maintain 90% vegan. I haven't taken any tongkat (would like to try taking it again though) but have been keeping up on the maca. A few days on and a couple days off seems to work well for me. Maybe it's maintaining a high state of wellness that is causing the lump to shrink. It's peanut sized and feels very warm today. No pain at all. I been noticing lately that the fulvic acid seems less stinky to me and that it seems to remind me more of burnt electrical. Could have something to do with the fact that I was working on electrical all day yesterday. That taste kept coming up. Maybe the power of suggestion? I even tasted it in my mouth this morning but as soon as I took a sip of fulvic acid water It got really strong. Kind of strange.

In addition. I also mix 1 teaspoon per gallon of concentrace and an eyedropper of liquid zinc and use the water for drinking and in everything I cook. My girlfriend claims my water gives her diarrhea. It only did that a little to me the first day and has never done so since but she says she never got used to it.
I bought my last concentrace here:http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/b ... id=TM-1002 because it was cheaper than ebay, where I got it last time. They have the ionic liquid zinc too but it's cheaper from Amazon.
Today my remaining lipoma is between the size of a pea and the size of a BB and just about gone.

One thing I will say about coconut oil. It tastes very good. It leaves me feeling satisfied with almost everything I put it in. I would not attempt a full or near vegan diet without it. I don't seem to crave meat one bit when I use plenty of coconut oil. I can't say the same for olive oil or cocoa butter.
I just took some fulvic acid and the thing I noticed was it seemed to hydrate me and make my senses feel better instantly. My hearing and eyesight both seemed like somebody turned a knob to dial them the second I swallowed it. It also tasted worse than I remember it recently tasting. Darn I was almost getting used to it. Hey a splash of the expensive raspberry flavored minerals seems to get rid of the cheap fulvic acid aftertaste. I hope this thing is gone soon!
Hi Honeybadger... Have you had your liver and your stomach acids checked, these two body functions tend to have a lot to do with our bodies making lipomas, its the bodies way of disposing of fats that are foreign to us.. Did your doctor offer any suggestions about diet?HoneyBadger wrote:I had a general family physician remove the lipomas. I can't recommend him until I work out a problem with the pricing. He said $150 for a large and $85 for small lipomas with a $200 setup fee. For 1 large and 2 small that adds up to $520 not $1000. As for scars I'm not very concerned at this point. My logic is i can lie about a scar but I can't lie about a bump. I have been putting Neosporen over the cuts and protecting it with bandages. I'm just so glad to have the large one gone at this point.Laura wrote:...did you have a cosmetic surgeon remove the lipomas, or other?
I will say that I had mixed feeling after looking at my massive lipoma on the surgical table. Sure I cursed the hellish thing, but at the same time it was a normal cell at one point. What went wrong... Purely genetic? I'm not so sure.
Hi Chakari,chakari wrote:Matt, you mentioned this on a previous post and this is something I have been wondering about for a while now. Do you think that lipomas form as a type of response to tissue trauma? I don't mean severe trauma, but possibly micro-tears in the tissue. It seems to me that I have seen lipomas on body builders. I have been in moderately good shape my whole life, and I have been exercising, mainly by weight training since I was a teenager. I noticed my first lipoma on one of my thighs when I was in my late teens. Leg training was my passion I was always very thin, and I wanted to be more shapely, even being muscular would have been an acceptable alternative (I'm female). Most of my lipomas are on my legs. I have a few on my butt and arms also. I am 44 years old, and I still weight train. I guess I just wonder if for some people lipomas are a response to something physical as opposed to diet related. Your thoughts? By the way, I had a lipoma surgically removed from my thigh, up near my bikini line, to see what the scar would look like--not good by the way, and another, very uneven lipoma grew next to/on top of it.matt stated:
I'm also planning to take photos of my lipomas. I actually had a trauma to my triceb. And almost everytime I develop a lipoma to that exact place. So this time, I took a photo of the hematoma, and let's see if I get a new lipoma to that spot this time too.
I was looking for dat kind of post from someone, and bingo I read urs. The same thing happened to me. I am , male , 26 & have suddenly developed multiple lipomas on my arms & thighs after I STARTED GOING TO THE GYM. I developed 2 on my arms in my late teens , when I first started the gym , Then I discoutinued it until last year & just month after I started exercising again they satrted multiplying abrupltly. I have again left the gym.Hope anyone finds a solution for this asap.

what I read here from you is a very positive story. Please can you send me an email ( you have it) and write me how do you believe that Schuessler salts have slow down the grow of new Lipomas.
I need it for my research and like to keep information as such in my file.
I'm happy to hear this. Perhaps we can do more examination to get more results. From all what I have seen, is this the only positive one. All mixtures so far are useless. I will work on it.
I've been reading all this thread with much interest. Thanks.
It seems that the only thing that's working is fulvic acid but I'm a little surprised; the product you mention in eBay shows i one of its labels a warning because of problems with high blood pressure.

On the other side, doing some research I find the contrary, that it helps reducing high pressure...

What do you know about it?
I've also added a couple of other minerals to my regimen. One is an ionic form of iodine aka nascent iodine. I noticed a huge increase in metabolism and energy on this. Another thing I started taking was taurine, the secret ingredient in Red Bull energy drink. I started by taking magnesium taurate and discovered that it gave me "wings" similar to the Red Bull claim. By that I mean that when I stop running my feet feel like something is still pushing them. Almost magic. Too much magnesium taurate gives me the runs. (over 5 grams a day). I read that other athletes were taking plain taurine and recommending up to 8 grams per day so I ordered some and it just came yesterday. I took my usual 3 grams of magnesium taurate yesterday and today but have also been adding 1/2 teaspoon of plain taurine twice a day to it and so far have had no negative side effects though it is a little too soon to be sure, though I think I'm going to keep taking both. I am also planning to start taking Selenium because I read that supplementing with iodine and heavy exercise uses up selenium in the body. I read that selenomethionine is the best and most absorbable form of selenium but when I searched for it found it to be pretty expensive. For some reason Swansons brand did not come up but it says on the label (and on the Swansons website) that it is from selenomethionine so I ordered some.
Another mineral I'm probably depleting is potassium. Potassium gluconate seems to be the most absorbable and highly recommended so I ordered that as well.
I think most people are highly depleted of minerals. But more important than taking minerals is the form that they are in. That is why I always go for the most absorbable type of any kind of mineral that I can find. The one a day multiple supplements seem to do nothing for me.
Also I looked up shilajit on amazon and iHerb and the prices of both seem lower than the ones on ebay, although i'm not sure if the potency is the same
