Get Rid of Cellulite Naturally

Did you know that hormones play an important role in dealing with cellulite? Bioidentical natural progesterone can help with weight loss but if you are struggling with ‘orange peel’ skin other factors like stress can make a major impact too.

Dr David Jockers
I wish it were as easy as one supplement, superfood or magical cream, but it is a bit more complicated.  We always have to go to the ROOT CAUSE!  In the end, this results in great overall health.

Cellulite is one of the most unsightly things many individuals remark about their bodies. Research has indicated that hormones are the major player in the creation and elimination of cellulite. Evidence indicates that healthy lifestyle strategies can positively affect the hormone balance associated with cellulite.

Cosmetic surgery is at an all-time high with over 1.5 million procedures performed in 2011 in the USA. This included over 205,000 liposuction procedures. Many of these surgeries have focused on eliminating cellulite. However, the surgeries are not only dangerous but they never address the hormone imbalance that causes cellulite to begin with.

Elevated Stress Hormones:

According to research published in the Journal of European Academy of Dermatology July 2000, it was found that cellulite can be caused by increased levels of stress hormone. The researchers found that individuals who had chronically elevated cortisol levels were much more likely to have cellulite accumulation. When the body senses it is in a state of chronic stress it will accumulate fat stores in preparation for times of famine that have accompanied times of stress throughout the history of mankind. This leads to the formation of cellulite. The key to removing cellulite naturally is to get rid of the causes of low-grade chronic stress in the body.

Minimize Stress to Balance Hormones Naturally:

There are three major stressors with our body’s natural hormone expression. The first major stress is mental/emotional and must be effectively addressed. Living in a state of fear is extremely destructive to human physiology. Fear drives stress hormones which utilize all the key resources in the body and increase fat storage.  To minimize mental/emotional stress spend more time reconnecting with your spiritual identity. Use the Earth’s rhythms by grounding yourself through walking barefoot, sitting or lying on grass, earth or sand for as long as possible. Sunbathing is great for vitamin D3 synthesis and reconnecting with the Earth’s rhythms and calming stress hormones.

Chemical Stress Affects Fat Burning:

Chemical stress comes in the form of bad nutrition and environmental toxicity.   A diet high in sugar, trans-fats and industrialized meat is highly inflammatory. These food sources create toxic cells and damage the gut lining and increase chronic stress in the body. Follow an anti-inflammatory diet that is free of food allergens and is loaded with fermented foods to reestablish a healthy gut. This reduces stress hormone expression and turns on natural fat burning mechanisms.

The ideal diet should focus on good fats as the primary calorie source in the form of coconut, avocados, olive oil and sprouted nuts and seeds. Clean animal protein in the form of organic meat, wild fish and organic poultry should be consumed regularly. The nutrition plan should feature phytonutrient rich vegetables and herbs and low-glycemic fruit like lemons and berries.

Physical Stress Must Be Corrected:

When an individual experiences some form of trauma such as a car accident, fall or plays contact sports, then the spine and nervous system become damaged. Poor posture patterns will also cause muscle imbalances and spinal subluxation patterns. A sedentary lifestyle is extremely damaging to the physical body as are poor biomechanics in lifting, bending and walking. The more these bad biomechanical patterns are used the more uneven wear and tear the body experiences and the more stress hormone is produced.

To effectively reduce physical stress it is essential to see a wellness based chiropractor to remove subluxations and restore good biomechanical and neurological patterns to the body. Rehabilitative exercises for the spine and extremities should be applied to restore balance and tone. A program of short-time period but high-intensit y burst training and resistance training optimizes physical health and fat burning capabilities.

Emily cellulite is not related to hormone balance but many other factors but if you have low progesterone and oestrogen then supplementing with a combination cream may be better for you.

I wa not done with my post and not sure how to edit. I also live a very healthy lifestyle. My diet is based on organic vegetable, nuts, seeds, lagumes, grains(excluding the gluten ones), lots of Quinua and hemp seeds for protein, 4x mo organic meat, wild fish 1x/week, sometimes fruits as a treat. I sleep 9hrs/night and am physically active during the day including squats and side lunges to target the area. I have a protein shake and eggs each day and make vegtable juices. Why do I have cellulite?

I have very low cortisol and have very bad cellulite. I also have low sex hormones. Maybe it has more to do with those. I had less cellulit when my cortisol was higher.
