How To Get Rid Of Cellulite For Good
Published on April 02, 2016
What is cellulite? Cellulite is the accumulation of fats, proteins and other waste products that have not been excreted from the body efficiently. Normally these unwanted substances would be carried out of the body via our wonderful lymphatic system, however, when the flow of lymph is sluggish, a build-up of toxins occurs and cellulite results!
So what is your strategy for getting rid of the dreaded cellulite? Well we have probably all heard of the simple technique of ‘dry body brushing’ before you shower followed by a good application of moisturiser such as plain coconut oil (as opposed to chemical laden creams).
This is certainly a good strategy as body brushing can help improve circulation and lymph flow, however, adopting these additional strategies can help you to shift that cellulite and keep it off for good:
#1 Whole Body Vibration otherwise known as Acceleration Training
#2 Rebound exercise
#3 Diet and Supplements
Acceleration Training Can Beat Cellulite For Good
Acceleration Training improves your lymph circulation, helping break down cellulite from the inside out. The vibrations cause thousands of muscle contractions that pump your lymphatic fluid out of problem areas, reducing fluid congestion in your tissues. This helps to flush out toxins and ease the load on your immune system. This mechanism has been scientifically shown to actually help rid your body of excess pounds and unsightly cellulite.
Acceleration training works by increasing the acceleration or the force of gravity on your body. To a lesser degree, a mini trampoline will also increase the G forces on your body and provide similar, yet less extreme, benefits. A mini trampoline or rebounder subjects your body to gravitational pulls ranging from zero at the top of each bounce to 2 to 3 times the force of gravity at the bottom, depending on how high you jump.
Other benefits Rebounding offers include circulating oxygen and nutrients to tissues and organs, and promoting increased muscle strength. Build up the time spent rebounding slowly though depending on your level of fitness.
Eat More Raw
Acids and enzymes in raw fruit and vegetables are powerful lymph cleansers, especially on an empty stomach. Lymph-friendly foods include: onions, garlic, ginger, avocados, butter, eggs,sprouts, coconut oil, olive oil, seaweeds like kelp, wheatgrass juice and other vegetable juices, citrus fruits (especially lemon and grapefruit), apple cider vinegar, bitter foods like radish, parsley, seeds (chia, sunflower and pumpkin) and raw nuts (walnuts and almonds).
If you want to add salt, make sure to use unprocessed natural salt, such as Himalayan salt.
Eating this way will help you transition from burning sugar to burning fat as your primary fuel, which is key for lasting weight loss and optimal health.
Don’t Forget To Reduce Your Toxic Load Outside as well as In!
As well as being mindful of what goes inside your body, it’s also important to pay attention to what you put on the outside. Your skin is extremely absorbent; therefore make sure you avoid unnatural skin care products that contain chemicals, preservatives, parabens and/or artificial ingredients.
Supplements May Help
Omega 3 fatty acids: Healthy fats are necessary for the proper function of the lymphatic system as well having excellent anti-inflammatory properties to help get rid of cellulite. Choose a pharmaceutical-grade fish oil high in the active ingredients: EPA and DHA.
Cleavers: Is a wonderful herb that greatly enhances the function of the lymphatic system; especially its capacity to deal with toxins. It also helps treat inflammation and swollen glands, purifies lymph, decreases congestion and encourages proper lymphatic drainage. (Avoid using cleavers if you suffer from diabetes or have diabetic tendencies)
Dandelion Root: Is an excellent start to getting rid of cellulite. It helps release trapped fluid and flush toxins from the body as well as supporting the lymph glands and giving the entire lymphatic system a proper cleanse.
Burdock: This amazing herb helps to eliminate waste in the body by relieving lymphatic congestion and thus promoting the flow of lymph. It is also a wonderful natural antibiotic, antiseptic, antifungal and detoxifying herb.
Echinacea: Cleanses the lymphatic system and helps reduce enlarged lymph nodes.
Get your lymphatic system back into shape and your body will be able to flush out those evil toxins from your thighs and buttocks! Once blood flow is restored to the affected areas, damaged tissue can be rebuilt and you’ll be well on your way to getting rid of cellulite once and for all!
