Cellulite

Overview

Cellulite is not a disease condition, per se, but a term used to describe the dimple appearance of skin caused by fat deposits under the skin’s surface.  It appears in various parts of the body, especially the thighs, knees, buttocks, stomach, and arms. It usually appears after puberty and occurs more frequently in women than in men as they have particular types of fat and connective tissue.  It is not weight related and can affect all body types.  It has been said that 80% of women over the age of 20 have cellulite.

Cellulite is classified in three grades:

Grade 1 classification has no clinical symptoms, but examination under a microscope shows underlying anatomical changes in the cells.

Grade 2 cellulite is where, in addition to the above, the skin show pastiness, is a cooler temperature, and has decreased elasticity.

Grade 3 cellulite, in addition to signs of grade 1 and 2, has orange peel like roughness of the skin and is obviously visible.

Cellulite is due to an increased ratio of fat cells to lean body mass. In order to reverse it, reducing body fat content and building up muscle mass is important.  Cellulite is formed by fibroid masses of protein that have accumulated in the spaces between the cells due to faulty elimination of waste by-products through the lymphatic system, your body’s filtration system.

Being a woman makes you more likely to develop cellulite due to differing hormones.  Hormones play a dominant role in the formation of cellulite. Estrogen may be the important hormone to initiate and aggravate cellulite. Genes also play an important role, so if other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other influencing factors are:

  • Poor diet
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Stress
  • Dehydration
  • Total body fat
  • The thickness and colour of your skin

Eat a whole foods diet with less complex carbohydrates and sugars than is usually recommended for the average person.

Drink large amounts of filtered water and make 3 glasses a day of freshly squeezed lemons in 1 cup water with a pinch of cayenne to melt cellulite away.

Decrease your total fat intake to below 20 percent of your total diet. Avoid processed fats, and do not eat protein at night since unused protein in the body puts a greater load on the lymphatic system.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef. The best beef is organic grass fed beef.

  • Cut down your alcohol intake.
  • Stop smoking or cut down significantly.

Supplements:

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day .
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement, omega 3s are known to reduce cellulite:

  • Apple cider vinegar contains components that some believe reduces the appearance of cellulite.  Drink 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar mixed with 8 ounces water each morning.

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

“In order to understand how stress contributes to cellulite we must first understand what happens to us when we are stressed,” says women’s health expert Dr. Delia Simu. “When we are stressed the hormone Cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands in response to physical, psychological or environmental stress. This newly secreted cortisol causes an elevation of estrogen in the body. As mentioned earlier, these higher levels of circulating estrogen drive fat into the fat cells within the subcutaneous layer of the skin, setting off a reaction that creates the undesirable ‘orange peel’ texture of the skin, in the affected areas.”

Here are some things you can do to combat stress:
