I was over on the lipoma group but it seemed rather dead vs the lipomaboard.
I am 36 and have about 16-18 "lipoma".. I use quotes only because that was what my doctor said it was just by looking and feeling them.
Well just this past Jan 5th I got a shipment of Fibrovan which is for women with endometriosis (sp?) A friend of mine has it and she mentioned to me that Fibrovan being all natural might be something Id want to try for my lipoma.
So since Jan 5th I have been taking 2 in the am and 2 in the pm along with 2 garlic and 1 turmaric pill am and pm also.
I have noticed one lipoma on my thigh which is the largest one I have seems to be shrinking.
I took a photo of the 2 on my left forearm on the day I started taking the fibrovan and will take another photo Feb 5th.
I cant say I know its working but I wanted to simply post what I was trying and I was curious if anyone else had either tried Fibrovan and had any luck or no luck.
Looking forward to any new info from this board.

Thanks for posting, Fibrovan is something I've never heard of. And the whole endometriosis is unknown to me. But it sounds very interesting.
I read that endometriosis is a condition that affects women in their 20s to 40s. An excess fibrin builds up on the the wall of the uterus. This causes fibroids or fibromuscular benign tumors to form.
It can be painful and can result in blood clot residue, scarring, heavy menstrual flow, and infertility. So Fibrovan is supposed to be a nutritional supplement that can be used to treat endometriosis.
Excess fibrin (an insoluble protein the body produces in response to bleeding and/or inflammation) builds up on the wall of the uterus. This excess fibrin produces what is termed the 'matrix' for endometriosis. Hormonal imbalance is a contributing factor in the production of excess fibrin.
Traditionally the condition has been treated with surgery, medications such as low-dose birth control pills, hormone therapy, and GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone agonists). All these medications have side-effects which can include depression, mood swings, severe menstruation and ovarian cancer.
Fibrovan includes Nattokinase (an enzyme extract from soy beans and bacillus natto, a beneficial bacteria), EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate, an antioxidant found in green tea leaves and grape seeds) and Lycopene (another antioxidant found in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables).
Lycopene gives the red color to the vegetables and it has been shown to prevent various cancers and help to protect against cervical, breast, lung and stomach cancers. In this article from 2003 they say that lycopene might not be as beneficial alone but together with other ingredients found in tomatoes. Lycopene possesses antibacterial and antifungal properties, especially against Candida Albicans according to this study.
Nattokinase should in theory quickly disolve unhealthy clots and fibrin deposits. So it's similar to serrapeptase of which we have already spoken. It has been reported that also Nattokinase has antibacterial properties, especially in our digestive tract where it acts like an antibiotic and can kill dangerous bacteria.
Unfortunally also Nattokinase has some side-effects. It is a clot-buster and a blood-thinner and may interact with ongoing aspirin therapy. It can also cause heavier periods of spotting while on it.
And what about EGGG then? Well it just so happens again that also EGGG has antibacterial properties. This study showed that addition of vitamin C enchanced the antibacterial effects of EGGG.
So overall this Fibrovan with it's ingredients looks like a good find to me! I'm definitely going to read some more about it but it looks like a promising supplement already. I think you can actually get the ingredients cheaper from IHerb though.
