All About CelluliteWhat is Cellulite?
- Cellulite is not fat, but rather a toxic body condition combined with edema and a lack of circulation.
- A person does not have to be overweight to have cellulite – thin people are also affected.
- Celluite does not respond to normal weight loss and exercise programs.
- 8 out of 10 women have cellulite as well as many men.
Cellulite can be described as a condition of uneven deposits of fat, water, and wastes that have become trapped in the connective tissues of the body, just below the skin’s surface. Cellulite occurs primarily in the hips, knees, upper thighs, abdomen, buttocks and upper arms because these areas have three layers of fat. Studies of cellulite found the biggest contributor toward a cellulite condition was poor blood circulation. However, toxic accumulation and fluid retention are major contributing factors in the formation of cellulite. Loss of blood flow to an area, whether from lack of exercise, excessive sitting, clogged arteries or nutrient deficiency, can have a disastrous impact on cellulite formation. According to cellulite experts, cellulite generally accumulates in areas with poor circulation and as a result, the toxins and waste materials get more clogged and harder to remove. The amount of damage that inhibited blood and lymph flow can do in fragile connective tissue cannot be calculated, but every system of the body is adversely affected when cleansing systems are reduced or blocked.
Today, younger women are developing cellulite. This can be explained by too much estrogen which makes fat cells larger, so younger women who are overweight might have a condition called estrogen dominance, meaning they are making too much estrogen and or eating foods that have estrogen-mimicking ingredients, common in processed foods.
With decreased circulation you get less oxygen and nutrition to that area and with that we see a decrease in collagen production. Also at this time fat cells start becoming larger; they begin protruding through the collagen and become the bumpy fat known as cellulite. When fat escapes from the subcutaneous layer of the skin it flows up to the epidermis and remains there to form the orange peel like appearance known as cellulite. Cellulite is a shallow fat directly under the skin.Controllable Contributors to Cellulite

Cellulite is a toxic body condition. In order to permanently eliminate cellulite you must start at the source of the toxic body and detoxify internally. If you have a toxic colon, and in return are hampering the elimination of toxins you will ALWAYS have cellulite. Toxins and putrefied matter stored in the colon are carried in the connective tissues, where they are deposited, forming cellulite.
- Imprisonment of waste material
- Toxic body and lifestyle
- Water retention
- Slowing down of the body’s waste removal system
- Hardening of the connective tissue
- Lack of blood, lymph and water flow through cellulite-prone areas
