So, over a year ago I noticed these hard lumps on my legs. They don’t hurt, they are just these kind of solid lumps under the skin. I had no idea what they were and when I visited my GP at the time, he indicated that they were harmless and nothing to worry about. They are called lipomas. Here is a medical explanation.
Thing is, I actually have no exact memory on when they appeared or how they got there. I possibly only noticed them because I had lost quite a bit of weight by then and could finally feel comfortable to wear little shorts again. Only thing was, I had these funny lumps on my legs. To me, they were initially just an eye-sore. Just something ugly, like in-grown hairs or vericose veins. The doctor didn’t think they were anything to worry about, so I simply ignored them. They are small—maybe the size of a five cent piece. But apparently they can get as big as a golf ball.
Well, yesterday I got one of Sandra Cabot’s books and as Sandra always explains, the conditions we experience are all related to the liver. On her list of symptoms was this exact thing…lipomas!
So, naturally I had to research a little further! Essentially, they are fat lumps created by our liver to dump excess toxins. I personally believe my liver created them because there were less fat stores for it to put all the toxins and hormones on my body. I had less fat areas to store the excess. No more fat tum or bum… oh well, let’s put them in a little lump on her leg! Wow! Thanks, liver!
Let me explain this one. Hormones and toxins are fat soluble and it is difficult to dispel the excess without our liver working properly. The liver needs to produce enough bile to break down fats and of course fat soluble hormones. Bile breaks down fats. When our liver isn’t working as well, we simply don’t produce enough bile to break down any of these fats. This is why it is also so highly recommended to reduce your body weight with Endometriosis—it lowers the fat stores in our bodies.
Okay, so why am I sharing this?
Well, when I did my liver flush my fat lumps reduced. Not much but they did!
To me, they are now my signal on how my liver is doing. My big mission now is to get rid of them as I then know that my liver is functioning properly and how it should be.
I have heaps of information to share about how the liver works and how we cannot only get it working better but more importantly how we can help dispel all those excess hormones—especially the bad xenoestrogens from our environment and foods.
What I would love to know is if you have them too? I know the body expels toxins in different ways and lately my skin seems to be one of its favorite outlets! What method has your body been using? Lipomas? Acne? Any other ways you know of?
Could this be another symptom of Endometriosis?
