Cellulite affects 93 percent of all women. Most women hate cellulite and want to get rid of it as quickly as possible. Some turn to cosmetic procedures to reduce its appearance but many don’t understand the cause of cellulite and how to effectively treat it. The fact is, there are more than one type and cause of cellulite. In this article, I will explain the types of cellulite, how it develops and most importantly, how to reduce it. Many treatments only scratch the surface of this condition. They fail to address what’s going on inside of the body that is causing it to produce cellulite. To reduce cellulite permanently, you have to do two things. Treat the symptoms you see on the outside and the cause of it on the inside. Here is a way to attack cellulite now with a one-two punch.
Cellulite is a disorder of the connective tissue that retains the fat tissue in compartments. This happens in the layer above the muscle and below the dermis or lower layer of the skin. While there are different types of cellulite, they all affect women more than men. They also tend to evolve slowly and build up over time. One type of cellulite you commonly see in women is caused by weak elastin fibers under loose skin. Muscle tissue rising into the weakened fibers cause a dimpled or spongy appearance of the skin. Another common type of cellulite can make the skin appear grainy or like an orange peel. This type of cellulite is firm and doesn’t move. Hips and thighs, around the back, and inside of the knees are common areas for this type of cellulite to appear.
Factors Contributing to Cellulite
- Presence of Estrogen
- Poor Blood Circulation
- Fluid Retention
- A Build up of Toxins in the Body
- Sluggish Lymphatic Flow
- Weight Gain and/or Crash Dieting
- Poor Metabolism
- Nutrient Deficiency
The role of the Lymphatic System on Cellulite Treatment
One of the biggest factors that contribute to cellulite is the performance of the body’s lymphatic system. To reduce or eliminate cellulite, and for overall good health, a high performing lymphatic system is critical. The lymphatic system is a network of tissue and organs. It helps to rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. According to the LG Disease Alliance, the lymphatic system has three functions.
- The removal of excess fluids from body tissues.
- The absorption of fatty acids and the transport of fat to the circulatory system.
- The production of immune cells.
One of its primary functions is to transport a substance called lymph around the body. Lymph is a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells so it’s important you have an active lymphatic system. Keeping your lymph nodes clear does several things. It helps to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid, eliminate toxins and reduce water retention. This boosts your immune system and can dramatically improve the treatment of cellulite.
Contour Body Wrap and a Total Body Cleanse—the One-Two-Punch
Some of my clients initially reach out to me to help treat their cellulite. First I explain that cellulite is a symptom of bigger issues that can be effectively treated naturally. Issues related to estrogen, blood circulation, toxic accumulation, and lymphatic flow are effectively treated with a contour body wrap. During this treatment, which can be done in the privacy of your home, the body is wrapped in specially formulated plastic that provides heat retention, acupressure to stimulate lymphatic flow and result in a contouring effect on the body. The main goals are purification, elimination, and detoxification. My clients experience a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. They also lose 4-14 inches each time. Plus they love how tight they feel and the soft, moist touch of their skin afterward.
The wrap experience is relaxing. First, we take initial measurements. Then targeted areas of the skin are exfoliated with a gentle scrub. Next, we apply a contour cream and wrap the target areas. After a 45 minute rest period, we remove the wrap. At that point, we can take measurements again to calculate inch loss. Just like many spa-treatments, we provide water throughout the process to ensure hydration. Many of my clients get a package of contour body wraps to feel relaxed and pampered.
For treating cellulite wraps are most effective when used as part of a lifestyle change program that includes a total body cleanse. If you read my last blog, A Total Body Cleanse will make you Feel Great Again, then you already know about the benefits of detoxing your body to reset and feel better. Plus, it will also help the body better absorb nutrients and establish and new, lower weight set-point.
