A lipoma is a slow-growing soft tumor that’s caused by fat deposits under your skin. While some lipomas may only be a cosmetic issue, others can be painful.

Lipomas are typically treated by surgery, if they are removed at all. But before considering surgical removal, some people may turn to natural remedies.

Ayurveda — an ancient Indian form of holistic medicine — offers several suggestions for dealing with lipomas. We’ll discuss whether these techniques are safe and their potential effectiveness.

 What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient form of natural, holistic healthcare. Developed more than 3,000 years ago in India, Ayurveda translates to “knowledge of life.”

The basis of Ayruveda is that everything in the body is interconnected with both the physical composition of the body (prakriti) and life forces (doshas).

Ayurveda treatments, like diets, focus on purification. They aim to create harmony in your body to address both physical and mental imbalances that may lead to illness or chronic conditions.

Many Ayurveda treatments begin with a purification process, followed by practices that may include:

  • herbal medicine
  • massage therapy
  • yoga
  • meditation
