Getting Rid of Cellulite – With Detoxing
Everyone hates cellulite—those little pockets of fat that gives your skin that “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearance. Creams, wraps and medical procedures don’t work and are just a waste of money – but does anything?
What causes cellulite?
Enlarged fat cells is what causes your skin to appear dimpled. Fluid retention, buildup of toxins, poor circulation, and poor muscle tone are contributing factors.
As with many other health issues, the key to successfully eliminating cellulite is in the dietary and lifestyle choices you make every day. It takes patience and a willingness to make some long-term commitments to your wellbeing.
More than skin deep
Cellulite is not just an aesthetic issue – it is also indicator of your general health. Since cellulite often results from a buildup of toxins and other unwanted debris in your fat cells, we can assume that your detoxification systems need support – specifically your liver and your lymphatic system.
Give your lymph some TLC!
Addressing cellulite means taking care of your lymphatic system – whose job it is to remove the extracellular fluid that bathes most of your tissues. Lymph is a clear fluid that moves between your cells, tissues, and organs along a lymphatic “highway” of specialized capillaries. About three-quarters of these capillaries are superficial, located near the surface of your skin.
Your lymphatic system is essentially your body’s “sewage processing plant”. It removes waste, toxins, and other unwanted material out of your cells and tissues so they can be flushed out of your body. When your lymph stops flowing freely, waste accumulates in your cells and tissues.
Exercise is essential
Unlike your blood, which has a beating heart to push it along, your lymph depends on movement to keep it flowing. If you don’t move, neither does your lymph – and cellular debris starts piling up in your fat cells. If your lymph becomes sluggish, then your fat cells may swell and one of the consequences is cellulite.
Regular exercise not only increases your lean body mass, it also stimulates your lymphatic system and helps your body to mobilize and eliminate toxins.
The long-term solution
Aside from cellulite, a sluggish lymphatic system can make you quite ill. That’s why it’s so important to not ignore warning signs that your body’s detoxification system is compromised – and cellulite is one of those signs.
Cellulite is a systemic problem that requires a systemic solution, as opposed to one off treatments. Getting rid of it once and for all requires proper exercise, nutrition, proper circulation and controlling fat storage hormones.
A proper detoxification program can help reduce your body’s toxic load, get your lymph flowing and improve the health of your liver so it can eliminate all the debris that compromises your health.
