Signs and Symptoms of Cellulite

Cellulite Home Remedy

Cellulite is a skin problem that can affect anyone, including men, women and children. However, women are often affected the most, with 95% of all women suffering from this condition to some extent. It is visually characterized by bulging, pitted, wrinkled, and dimpled skin on the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs which occur due to fatty deposits that are concentrated in these areas. Symptoms of cellulite include a feeling of sagging, tenderness, or tightness in the affected areas, particularly while standing. The image on the right shows a woman suffering from cellulite. The right side of the image shows the same woman after the effects of cellulite have been reduced.

Causes of Cellulite

The female hormones Progesterone and Estrogen are the main causes of Cellulite. The Estrogen hormone promotes the formation and expansion of fat cells around the buttocks, thighs and breasts while Progesterone leads to the development of weak veins, fluid retention, and weight gain. Other contributing factors include smoking, stress, pregnancy, rough and harsh massages, obesity, lack of exercise, and genetics.

Home Remedies and Natural Treatments for Cellulite

Cellulite Home Remedy Using Apple Cider Vinegar

The nutritional components of Apple Cider Vinegar have been known to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Oral Remedy

  • Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into an 8 ounce glass of water.
  • Optionally add a small amount of honey as a sweetener.
  • Drink this once each morning.

Topical Remedy

  • Mix 3 parts apple cider vinegar with one part of your favorite massage oil.
  • Gently knead this solution onto affected skin areas twice daily.
  • This massage treatment will help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Exercise to Reduce Cellulite

Since cellulite is fat, excess weight can contribute to it. Therefore, physical exercises like walking or jogging, swimming, jumping on a mini-trampoline, skipping with a rope, and even yoga are all effective ways to control stress and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Other beneficial activities include weight lifting, martial arts, and dancing. Make a habit of exercising for at least 20 minutes per day, 5 days a week. This returns your body chemistry to a balanced state in which cellulite is less likely to develop.

Eat a Low-fat Balanced Diet to Treat Cellulite

A low fat balanced diet plays an important role in getting rid of cellulite. Eat plenty of fiber and wholegrain foods (such as bran and oat cereals) since they help to remove waste and toxins from the intestinal tract. Fruits and vegetables such as asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, and pears are all excellent foods that prevent the development of cellulite. Therefore try to eat at least 5 servings of such foods daily.

Other beneficial things to add to your diet include fish oil, gingko biloba, and soy lecithin. These are very effective supplements that provide positive effects such as improving blood circulation, enhancing metabolism, and protecting against cell damage.

Stay away from alcohol, sugar, smoking, and caffeine since these products constrict your blood vessels and may actually worsen the appearance of cellulite. Also, try to reduce your salt intake, since salt is known to contribute to water retention which promotes cellulite.

    It's caused by too much estrogen and progesterone. Women also have small circulating levels of testosterone and that is what the "experts" say, helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite by helping maintain and build muscle mass. Don't let that scare you because women could never have enough of the male hormone, testosterone, in their body to get big and bulky - not naturally at least. Or without some type of endocrine disease.

    What is this diet exactly? I would like to try it. Please help?

    In regards to the first part of the article, Is it lack of progesterone and estrogen or too much of the hormones?

    Actually all soy is a gmo. Monsanto (the agricultural company) made sure that farmers cannot get any kind of soy beans besides the gmos. Anything they tell you otherwise is just marketing bull crap.

    Eating a low-fat diet is mentioned, but also eating a healthy, low-carb diet works. In this diet I actually make sure to get a good bit of healthy fats. This is what I've been doing for a few months now and my cellulite has disappeared.

    Google "soy and Thyroid". Also,"fluoride and thyroid". Interesting reading!

    Although this seems counterintuitive, we get acid problems from highly acidic foods because we are actually low in natural stomach acidity. Apple Cider vinegar actually adds that acidity back in and brings a ph balance to our stomachs. When I feel gassy in my stomach or have indigestion a Tbsp of vinegar in 6-8 oz of water settles it right down. Give your body a bit of time to get used to the process.

    Angie, I wouldn't recommend unfermented soy products to ANYONE. It can cause serious thyroid problems and worse. Do a google search on Soy side effects - you might be shocked. Everyone needs to be warned, because it is in so many health products, like aspartame, which is a neurotoxin. It's ridiculous the way products are marketed as healthy when they are far from it.

    Check your thyroid levels too ladies. I went to doctor to see what was causing weight gain. No matter what I did (nutrisystem, weight lifting, cardio and drinking a gallon of water a day), I wasn't losing weight. My doctor did bloodwork and found out that I needed thyroid medicine.

    Have you tried Apple Cider Vinegar and found that your stomach can't handle it? I was just wondering because it actually helps settle my husband's stomach.
