Koluppu Katti – Multiple Lipomas – Ayurvedic Treatment Possibilities

Recently I have received many inquiries regarding treatment for multiple lipomas, called Koluppu Katti in Tamil. So, this article intends to explore what Ayurveda offers for the treatment of this disease and what its limitations are.

Lipoma is a fat mass collection in soft body tissues, such as underneath the skin. They are non cancerous in nature. It is usually harmless, but in a few cases, it may cause pain due to pressure over the structures below the lipoma. There are no known medicines to cure it as of now. Surgery is opted for cosmetic purposes, or if the pain and discomfort is severe.

Here are a list of Ayurvedic treatment options for this condition. But  please note that these are just the treatment options, without any documented success. These treatments can be tried. But success can not be guaranteed.

Ayurvedic treatment options

– Since the bulging or the mass is formed due to Fat deposition, there is significant Kapha derangement in the body. Hence the patient needs to undergo Vamana – emetic therapy, one among the five important treatments, called Panchakarma.

Since there is faulty fat metabolism, correction of metabolism with Ayurvedic treatment is required. Vamana therapy helps in this regard.

An Ayurvedic procedure called Udwartana is beneficial to control further fat deposition.

Ayurvedic text books explain copper as one of the predominant metal used to treat extra growths. So, take water in a copper vessel, keep it over night and drink it the next morning. Precaution: if you feel vomiting sensation, then do not keep it overnight, but keep it for 2 hours and consume.

Ayurvedic medicine – Kanchanara guggulu might have some beneficial effect.

Apart from these, on consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor, some of the safe and effective herbo mineral preparations can be tried.

  1. lipomas are not killer desease but can make someone feel at unease throughout the life so drastic solution is a need of hour as there are so many cases of lipoma patient

  2. i have only one lipomas on my face. but after removing it from surgery it will increase to about 10 lipomas on my body now.

    • Sorry that I do not have any treatment for this condition.
      Surgery might not be the cause of eruption of new lipomas. I think it was just a matter of coincidence.

  3. sir,

    I am having multiple lipoma glands in my body. i have tried so many medicines but no results.
    Pls suggest the treatment for me

  4. i have lots of lipoma i’m still searching for teatment
    want to now what is Kanchanara guggulu.
    please help

      • Hi nitinshetty,
        I’m also suffering the same exact problem. My uncle has some 50/100 tumours (almost table tennis ball size) distributed throughout his body. Surgery generally is not the answer and only some 2 or 3 big tumours can be removed at a time(and it leaves really bad scars). If too many tumours grow big in size surgery will be very tough to perform.

        I advice following some sort of ayurvedic treatment before the thing gets out of hand(like it has for my uncle). I tried ayurvedic treatment for some 10 months with minimal improvements but not much, but atleast something is better than nothing. Still trying new treatments with help of Hebbar sir to beat the disease.(but no success yet)

        I am also suffering from the same disease :(. But most of the tumours are small and i had 2 big ones removed last year.

  5. I tried losing weight and improving metabolism.So far lost 16 kg and one lipomas which was of golf ball size reduced to 1/4.The smaller one dissappeared. Now because of losing weight 3 are visible like 3 pack from my 8 pack muscle.I have started doing abs exercises to stress these area.Although area these tease me with little pain due to exercise but I’ll try atleast one more month of my brisk walking and exercise.For diet I have reduced my fat intake and added flaxseed in various dishes.Other thing which I do is to drink warm water,if possible with lemon juice.I tell my body daily to reduce these lumps.I will update this next month for results.If someone else tried this before,please update me for results.I hope that other lumps(5-6)will also reduce and ultimately disappear.

    • Even I have got more than 30 lymph nodes in my body..will drinking and eating fat items will increase the size andcount of it…

      • There is no relation between a fat diet and lipoma. But fat rich diet is not good for most of the people. Hence better avoid it.

  6. hello sir,
    nice page to read thank you for spend time for this .i have skin tags and tinea versicolor in my body with lipoma .in this lipoma in uncurable so, tell me the treatment for the other two 1.skin tags,2.tinea versicolor

    • Hi, sorry to say that I have not treated any lipoma with succcess.
      Even the skin tags are hard to go with Ayurvedic medicines.

    • Mr Dev kumar, there are 2 effective medicinal applications for tinea versicolor – SELSUN shampoo by Abbott Laboratory, and Divya Kesh Kanti shampoo by Patanjali Chikitsalaya(Baba Ramdev) Both are very effective applications, interestingly, both the manufacturers do not know that their hair shampoo is so effective for a skin disease. Don’t use both, use either of them. Only for external application. However Lipoma is on my study, lets see how early I reach an effective remedy. I am not a doctor nor a marketing rep of any of these companies !! Good luck.

      • How to apply that shampoo. we should use while bath or we can apply normally on skin morning and evening time?

  7. Ayurveda (traditional medicine practiced in India)
    Proper exercise (cardio)
    Proper diet (no junk food, limit carbs and proteins, eat raw food)
    Liver detox (with fresh squeezed juice, milk thistle, eleuthero or Siberian ginseng. turmeric)
    Limit to only two orgasms per week
    Liver flush presented as optional extra method (with water, epsom salts, olive oil or sunflower oil, grape fruit or any other sour fruit juice, organic apple juice)

    That’s it. In 5 to 6 months following the methods one should expect disappearance of small lipomas and a reduction in larger ones.

  8. drink 1 glass warm milk with 1 tbsp turmeric powder in it. its a home remedy known to reduce lipoma.

    • Hi, This is a good remedy for allergic rhinitis and allergic skin conditions. Not sure of its effectiveness on lipoma.

  9. Hi Friends,
    Surgery and doing intense exercise wiil increase lipoma, reason : Lactic acid is generated more when we do intense exercise, as it should burn out naturally for other people ,cuz of our rare condition it wont burn so it will keep depositing and getting more am not discouraging you, this is what i got from my experience,
    Due to back pain i did more dead lift to strengthen my lower back later few weeks i noticed many lipoma popping out, God can only save us. Their is no medicine for this shit if some one find any good result pls email me [email protected] thank you

  10. Hi to all,

    The lipoma is reducing by siddha treatment. Contact This. Selvam Clinic, Ph. +91 9994441076.

  11. Hello Sir,Whether it leads to cancer…some of my friends advised to do some biapsy test….Please advise.

  12. In reply to the video about lipoma, one thing the Western Doctor did not consider when telling the man not to exercise, is that abhyanga helps to clear toxins from the body via the oils used and the massages which activate circulation. I know it is painful, I have lipomas, but I would rather do abhyanga and steam than give up something the body needs, such as exercise — like yoga and light things like swimming with hot tub. So my efforts with my close to 20 lipoma now will focus on the herbal, massage and yoga, but adding steam room at the gym with application of oil (sesame on body, coconut on head) before the steam. When I can afford it, I will go to a local ayurveda doctor here in Pittsburgh. We are lucky to have one in Robinson.
