Mention ‘cellulite’ or ‘weight gain’ to any woman and she would instantly wail about the difficulties of getting rid of both and the best way of doing so.
We might jest about cellulite, but it is a real issue. Fortunately, it is not unsurmountable and can be treated holistically at Body Renewal!
Cellulite, weight gain and dysbiosis
Dysbiosis is a microbial imbalance in the gut. The importance of gut health was not fully understood until recently. If you take into consideration that 70% of your immunity starts in the gut, it becomes clear that its state will affect overall health and weight management.
Treating dysbiosis and low stomach acid will normalise intestinal flora, help get rid of toxins and internal inflammation resulting in healthier body function. This will slow down the formation of cellulite and assist with weight loss.
What are the symptoms of dysbiosis and leaky gut syndrome?
- Suffering from various digestive complaints such as flatulence, nausea, bloating, reflux, tummy ache, constipation or diarrhoea.
- Cellulite is aggravated by dysbiosis, chronic candidiasis and suboptimal liver function.
- Dysbiosis should be considered when a patient complains of general health difficulties such as cellulite, weight gain, respiratory problems, food allergies, fatigue and even some more serious disorders.
What else can cause cellulite and weight gain?
- Excess oestrogen may result in weight gain, which causes fat cells to enlarge. This causes pressure against the blood and lymph vessels, which in turn slows down blood flow delaying the elimination of toxins from the body.
- Slow blood flow means less oxygen to the body which reduces cell turnover and can cause changes in the skin, e.g. formation of the orange peel appearance of cellulite.
- Drink plenty of purified water daily to enhance detoxification.
- Eat alkaline forming foods such as raw fruit and vegetables, lean proteins, nuts, seeds and legumes as cellulite thrives in an acidic environment. Acid forming foods like red meat, white pasta and rice should be avoided.
- Regular exercise to increase blood flow and oxygen to assist with detoxification.
- Be patient! It won’t resolve overnight, but as your liver starts burning fat and detoxifying the body, the results will follow.
