You know that pasty, rippled skin that collects most noticeably on thighs, buttocks and hips? Medically speaking, it’s called adiposis edematosa or gynoid lipodystropy, but you just call it cellulite, and if you’ve got it, you hate it.
Cellulite usually doesn’t appear until after puberty, and it is a condition more commonly seen in women than men. While cellulite still remains something of a medical mystery, scientists do know its development and severity is directly impacted by the following: hormonal factors, genetics, diet, and lifestyle.
There are a number of medical treatments that have been proven very effective in eliminating cellulite. These procedures are non-invasive and rely on technology coupled with the body’s own physiological capacity to heal itself. Among the most-recommended of these therapies are:
• Carboxy (CO2) Therapy
• Wood Therapy
• Vacuum Therapy
There is a way to help prevent cellulite no matter what your gene pool or hormonal pre-disposition. The path to living cellulite-free is grounded in a healthy, low-fat, high-fiber diet complemented by daily exercise, stress reduction, and the maintenance of a healthy weight. Finally, while you should avoid processed and fried foods as well as empty carbohydrates, be sure to load up on these nutritional powerhouses: Water, Green Tea, Pineapple, Asparagus, Sunflower Seeds, Chili Peppers, Bananas, Pears, Broccoli, Citrus, and Salmon.
