The Cellulite Conundrum and slaying the Monster

We either have it already or we really hope we’ll never get it...
I’ve read so much on this topic - - lots of great creative writing - - lots of science fiction ... often it's a case of 'follow the money'.

The therapies and suggestions of present day cellulite banishing has greatly improved over the decades. And here are some all-round, wholesome, easy, inexpensive, at-home remedies. Live blood analysis can shed light on whether there are hidden toxins, an over-supply of heavy metals, sluggish lymphatics or hidden culprits.

Just, as a very brief introduction only, there are SO MANY REASONS for cellulite, but they all fall under one heading: LIFE!
NO blame can go to genetics. Yes, there’s more cellulite in one family than another, or more for women than with men...
But the reasons overlap within each family and gender:

  • long periods of sedentary lifestyles;
  • years of poor diet including the many pesticides, herbisides, fungicides and now prolific glyphosates
  • years of chronic disease
  • unseen and undiagnosed dysbiosis
  • estrogens from plastic water bottles
  • food shelf-life stabilizers and emulsifiers and ‘naturual’ colouring and flavorings in processed foods
  • not enough hydration
  • terrible drinking water
  • environmental toxins and smog...
    and so forth...

SO! It’s NOT ‘like mother, like daughter!

Treating one’s lumpy 'orange peel' skin takes a lot of patience, but summer isn’t here yet and it’s worth the effort

Two Things Have to Occur Simultaneously to Cause it to Appear: A and B

There has to be an over abundance of toxins (the short set of suggestions above but the list of culprits in today’s world is so very long).
There has to be a decrease of structure-strength holding the body’s cells together – a decrease in collagen is how we usually convey this cellulite conundrum, but it affects the strength of all structural cells.

cellulite conundrum

A - about the toxins that have to come out
Our bodies are brilliant and get rid of toxins in many smart ways such as through a well-working healthy intestinal tract, lots of urine flow, good sweating, and even our breath. The lymphatic system, also in the business of removing toxins (picking up from the extracellular matrix, processing the 'stuff' by the white cells in the many nodes and deposiiting the managed toxins into the blood supply to be removed to the exits!) is amazingly efficient, too! That said, some toxins are not all removed easily or naturally – either because the incoming load is too great or our bodies are not in shape to do this completely (such as having a liver that is struggling). Think of someone on heavy medications who is dealing with a group of chronic diseases... The medications' residues are not going to nicely head to the exit as soon as the required effect from the meds have been achieved. The chronic diseases themselves can also be a hindrance to optimum and awesome cellular cleansing activity.
So, the toxins are parked - for a short time or continuously or a very long time. The easiest and least damaging place for our brilliant bodies to park this unwanted toxicity, is in the nearest fat cells, and nicely out of harm's way. Actually very brilliant!

B - about re-strengthening the structures
Over time, over the decades, our basic structural membranes may weaken – the 'rebar' holding it all together decreases it's effectiveness... Our bodies are SO CLEVER that the breakdown of collagen, our structural matrix, viscera, etc, occurs in places where it is least life threatening... And that would be in the fat cells areas (rather than in heart muscle or finger tips - to make a point...)
Think of collagen as the thin chicken-wire inside structural glass to make it stronger.
Then the time comes that the chicken-wire unravels a bit here and there and slowly wears away.... and hence the wobbly appearance of the skin. That's why there can even be a lot of cellulite in a relatively lean person and less in an obese person.



A - how to get the toxins out
for working away at reducing the fat cells themselves, you’ll need a scrub and a cream
Here’s the scrub:
* 2 Tbsp top notch organic ground up coffee beans (a biolytic effect and an exfoliate) (Caffeine has a subtle but proven effect on breaking our fats cells down – at least the fat cells closely below the epidermis and corium skin – the ones nearer the surface that benefit from the scrub’s penetration)
* 2 Tbsp unrefined coarse coconut sugar (biolytic effect and an exfoliate)
* 2 Tbsp pulverized top notch green tea leaves
* 2 drops of organic grapefruit essential oil
* 2 drops of organic cypress essential oil

Mix all of the above into 2 Tbsp organic cold-pressed coconut oil until you have a nice paste.
Massage daily, in a circular motion, on all the areas that need it for several minutes.
Jump into the shower.
Gently brush the skin to support the lymphatic system while you’re showering (always stroke gently towards the heart - many diagrams online as to how to do this)
Apply vit A cream / oil after drying off

THEN WE WANT TO DRINK LOTS OF CLEAN (NON-PLASTIC CONTAINER) WATER. We can interchange that with organic green tea (not from China). An upcoming article on water soon...

Drinking plenty of clean non-alkaline water from glass bottles is vital and a necessity. Potassium and magnesium rich foods are also really crucial as they help the flushing in-and-out action at the cellular level between night and day and sodium and calcium. Only the best oils and fats are a MUST - as they are part of every bodily cell's outer-membrane - either with toxins within that want to come out or as regular cells that want to remain healthy and not become a dilapidated toxic burden. 
Backing off the poor salts helps make this automatic flushing of fluids: the day-night and in-and-out action much easier.

Good salts are important and misunderstood and are described at:

And shutting down your body's glycation as much as possible! That's a big part of reducing the breaking down of structural fibers (including face and surface skin tissue). 
As you probably know, there are different firms of sugars and these sugars become glucose and glycogen.
Sugars are wonderful swift performing fuels. All food - simple sugars, simple carbs, complex carbs and proteins eventually turns to glycogen which leads to blood sugar in our circulatin - one way or another. All foods except for fats.
These blood sugar molecules (aside from going into all of our cells as fuel) like to attach themselves to protein and fat molecules - especially attaching to elastin and collagen. This includes our outer skin and inner structural tissue.
If we really over consume, then we have what is called - advanced glycalation end products - and certainly cellulite takes a hit, too. Fibers then become stiffer and even mal-formed and then sends messages of inflammation to the receptors and sets up more problems - that’s excellerated aging for short with cellulite along for the ride.
So now, we have inflammation in the conversation - best to go down the list of known culprits and reduce them - and this helps to reduce more cellulite from being formed:

The icing on the cake would be frequent ozone/oxygen detoxification saunas – this helps with many health issues, total detoxing as well as cellulite reduction –


B - getting to re-strengthening the structural membranes
For this part, you’ll may need to possibly alter your foods / cooking / diet / etc. And although the repair here is about bringing back a better structural system for your fat cells to be held in place in a more tidy fashion, you can imagine that your skin, hair, artery walls, etc are also thrilled with this attention to collagen details.
Bone broth is your friend in this. Not just any old bone broth, nor commercial bone broth bought from a big box store or out of a can or box or foill lined box! You’ll want wholesome, ‘clean’, bone broth that you make yourself. You need to pick up ORGANIC bones – chicken or beef – from a proper healthy health store. These need to be cooked for a long time on a very low heat... It’s a no brainer and requires NO kitchen know-how other than to put a big pot of water on the stove OR turn on the slow cooker on LOW or 24 hours.

The above is your easiest way, by far, to add Proline and Glycine to your diet – these very essential (often missing) amino acids are the essential  building blocks that should be making your improved rebar all day and night. (Can you imagine concrete without much cement and just the sand and water).
Do this very often and not just once in a blue moon, as your body decides what it will use the Proline and Glycine in the collagen for – and if muscle (heart) and bone marrow repair (indirectly aids the immune system) are deemed more crucial, it may take a little longer for the collagen to be 'beefed up' and structural perfection to return, while the amino acids deal with the other emergencies. Bell peppers, strawberries, broccoli, citrus fruits, asparagus, mushrooms and cabbage also contain Proline. Glycine can be eaten through dairy, seeds, nuts, clean fish, spinach, mustard leaves, garlic, broccoli and of cource you'll wannt to do your own research.

That's it - and keep it up!
