Complete home cellulite treatment with tea and homemade recipes
Cellulite is caused by several factors such as improper diet, reduced physical activity, hormonal imbalance, genetic predisposition, smoking, and stress.
The appearance of cellulite is more common in women than men, suggesting that the influence of hormones is very important. Reason why women suffer from “orange peel” more than men is of the high level of the hormone estrogen present at weaker sex. As we already know, it is not that easy to get rid of cellulite, and requires long-term treatment, including lifestyle changes.
Cellulite is not just a cosmetic problem, but should be understood as a disease which in an advanced stage cause pain to touch on affected areas. It can later lead to serious circulation and joints problems, and affect confidence in many cases. Scientific research shows that successful fight against cellulite lies in proper diet and physical activity.
When it comes to diet, it is necessary to provide the body with more fluids to accelerate metabolism and eliminate toxins. It is best to drink non-chlorinated spring water and herbal teas that accelerate blood circulation and detoxify the body.
For the (home) treatment of cellulite, greatest effect have nettle tea, dandelion, horsetail (Equisetum), cherry trees and the inevitable green tea.
In the discharge of harmful substances from the body increase your intake of foods rich in vitamin C (lemon, kiwi, peppers), and foods rich in potassium (bananas, peaches, peas, whole grains, nuts, almonds) and sulfur (chicken, fish, milk, eggs).
Artichoke, cabbage, and pineapple are also good natural remedy for cellulite because they are natural diuretics and antioxidants. Soy and soy products will certainly be welcomed.
In previous post, I write about foods that cause cellulite, but generally, in the fight against cellulite it is important to avoid:
- Fatty foods high in cholesterol
- White bread
- Soft drinks
- Canned food
You may already know that excessive intake of salt retains water in the body, so please avoid salt as much as you can. Personally, I do not even use salt because sodium chloride (NaCl) is a chemical compound present in most of foods.
We should not neglect daily exercise, not even an easy walk that speeds up metabolism. Hiking will provide you with a sufficient amount of oxygen that is necessary for the body. Moreover, the days of spring are here, so why don’t you take a weekend in a nature, relax, and fill the body with fresh air!
Light massage stimulates circulation, which is essential in the fight against cellulite.
For the preparation of anti-cellulite products used externally (various cellulite creams and oils), one of the best natural remedy is plant ivy. In fact, elements present in ivy extract help absorb edemas or accumulation of fluid in the early stages of cellulite development.
