Cellulite

Cellulite is a common condition in the human body. The condition appears as dimpled- looking skin generally in the thighs, buttocks, stomach and upper arms. The medical term for cellulite is adipose edematosa.

Cellulite is categorized into three categories of severity:

  • Grade 1 is microscopic and undetectable to the naked eye.
  • Grade 2 is more severe. This categorization shows minimal changes in the skin, but is detectable.
  • Grade 3 is the most severe and shows visible rough and unevenness in the skin.

Both men and women can be affected by cellulite. The condition is generally more prevalent in women because they are more likely to have particular types of fat and connective tissue.

Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is thought to be caused by a number of things, which are:

  • Hormones such as estrogen, insulin, and thyroid
  • Genetic characteristics such as gender, race, metabolism, and fat distribution
  • Diets high in fat, carbohydrates, and salt
  • Diets too low in fiber
  • Lifestyle factors like smoking, inactivity, and sitting or standing for long periods of time

Dietary Intervention

We can’t change our genetics, but there are factors we have control over. Diet is one of them. High consumption of sugar, dairy, and animal products can be a contributing factor in cellulite production. By limiting process and refined foods in our diet, eliminating dairy and animal products, and drinking more water. We can reduce the symptoms of cellulite.

Water is important as it helps carry waste out of our body. By drinking more water we can help to improve how our body eliminates waste. This combined with proper nutrition helps to combat cellulite.

Leading an active lifestyle is also important. Our bodies need to move. Exercise helps to keep our bones strong, our muscles toned, our stress levels down, and our body systems working efficiently. Everyone should aim to exercise at least thirty minutes per day. This will not only help you to be healthier and happier, but will also assist in reducing your cellulite.

Natural Healing of Cellulite

Aside from eating a healthy diet, living an active life and staying away from harmful substances, detoxification is also a great help with cellulite. Detoxifying will help to cleanse and flush out anything that keeps the body from working at peak levels.

After performing the detox, make sure to stay on the healthy track by remembering the other ways to keep your body healthy. A healthy lifestyle should be lived every day.

    Q: I have a question for you. Do you have or recommend an herbal cellulite cream that can be used as a body wraps to lose inches? There are so many products on the market and no one knows if they truly work or not. Is there an herbal body cream that I could use to shrink the fat cells in my stomach area? I have done a body detox and have been dieting for the past year. Hope you can help me to find the perfect herbal body cream that will help me.

    A:

    Cellulite doesn't come from a crème so it can't be healed with a crème. Cellulite is the result of diet and lifestyle so you have to make the necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle. Period! You're dealing with the Law of Cause and Effect here. The cause of cellulite is poor eating and lifestyle habits and the effect of poor dieting and lifestyle is disease, i.e. cellulite. I suggest you keep on detoxing! These wraps only work minimally, but it's cutting corners because even after having them performed you are still toxic inside - a walking time bomb!

    Q: I am listening to you on Rainbow soul talking about cellulite and stretch marks and it sounds as if you have just given up on the black female race like there is no help for big women.

    A:

    Dherbs.com: I haven't given up on big Black women at all. The fact is that most big Black women BLACK discipline and will not do what is necessary. The simple fact that they blew up in the first place says a lot (i.e. poor self-esteem, low self-image, unhappiness, undisciplined, etc.)

    That is another story though cause I'm not big AT ALL!! but I am a black female.

    Dherbs.com: I'm writing an article soon on Black women and obesity: causes/origins, dangers, and solutions. Now does this sound like I have given up????

    ANYWAY - my question to you is - Since January 8, 2007 I stopped eating meat and I saw a tremendous result in my complaint areas.

    Dherbs.com: Good for you!

    Now I'm pregnant and read that protein develops the babies brain so I started eating meat until I have the baby.

    Dherbs.com: LORD HAVE MERCY!!!! I greatly disagree with this, but it's your choice. I have 3 vegan-vegetarian children. Their mothers didn't eat meat during their pregnancies. You don't have to worry about the development of your baby's brain. The body intelligence has that covered. Meat is not protein unless you eat it raw (but the WHOLE animal must be eaten)!!!

    Is it safe to drink protein shakes to replace the protein instead of eating meat?

    Dherbs.com: You can't get bio-protein from protein shakes. Protein shakes are made from waste products (i.e. radiated soy, whey, etc.). If you really want natural proteon, check out our Bio-Protein we sell. It's 100% all-natural. But remember, protein is in every natural food you eat. How do herbivore animals in the wild get their protein since they don't eat meat???

    Meat for protein is a great conspiracy and propaganda tactic. Read Dherbs articles "PROTEIN PROPAGANDA" and "THE DANGERS OF EATING MEAT."

    Regardless of how you view me, thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: I am just wondering if you've heard of European Body wraps for inches, fat and cellulite loss...every ad says you can lost 6-28 inches in one wrap. I am not so sure how accurate that is...or how long the results last. I know it works by helping to release waste from the body... Can you tell me anything about it? Is it worth the money and time? Any downfalls to it?

    A:

    I have heard many good things and results about this process. Be willing to take a chance and learn for yourself. That's how you grow! RISK! Take a shot! Give it a shot!

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: I have used many of your products - the full body cleanse, the female cleanse, and I completed the respiratory cleanse last month. I felt great during the cleanse; when I got off of it, I didn't feel that I was eliminating as easily or consistently. I had purchased the Intestinal Cleanser and the Bowel Motion and started taking them together in the evenings, but I missed a few days due to travel. I noticed that I felt horrible during the days that I was taking it (and felt better when I was off of it).....my stomach felt bloated and cramped and I had headaches and low energy. I am wondering if the combination is too strong for me. Do you recommend taking only the Bowel Mover, or are you supposed to take both? Is it possible that I have a digestion problem? I also had purchased the Thyroid herbs. Is it okay to take those at the same time, or should I wait?

    A:

    Read our article HEALING CRISIS!

    Herbs don't cause any health problems. They help you to heal from them. You were experiencing healing crisis, which can be unpleasant; but your body doesn't care. it just wants to heal itself.

    I suggest you take these herbs at night right before you go to bed (which is the best time to do so anyway).

    And yes, you can take the Thyroid formula ... but take it in the morning!

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: Hope you are having a great day! I just finished the FULL BODY DETOX and I feel great. My skin condition has improved; the raised bumps on my arms are better. I am going to start the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSEtomorrow. What do you else do you recommend for my skin? After the 10 day colon cleanse, can I immediately start the weight loss compounds?

    A:

    For your skin I recommend use of OZ OIL. And yes, you can start one cleanse after the next. No problem at all in doing this!

    Q: I would like to know if what I'm doing is okay. This is way before we found dherbs site and the products on the internet. We read on the internet that drinking a teaspoon of natural black sea salt or any sea salt in 32oz warm water every morning is good for bowel movement. We have been doing it for awhile now. Is it too much to take it with your products? I lost some weight after my FULL BODY DETOX but not too much on my stomach. What do you recommend l should use to get rid of the tummy area? I bought FIBROID BUSTER TEA I am I drinking it because l feel there is Fibroids down there. Should l also continue taking my BUNNY RABBIT formula with Fibroid tea? In my last email l mentioned my husband had mild stroke. Now he's having spasms all over his body especially when he's sleeping at night. Why is he having it and what else can he use for that? We are using all these wonderful products on the inside and still have un-even skin. Is it okay to use AMBI products for more youthful skin then detox every four months? If not, when are we going to see your skin products on the market?

    A:

    We don't recommend the drinking of sea salt. For tummy reduction: exercise (perform abs, sit ups) and take BOWEL MOVER and WEIGHT RELEASE FORMULA. You can take your herbs and tea together. No big deal! Spasms? Clearly the â€HEALING CRISIS†(read the article by this same title). The skin will improve in time. Don't focus on it!

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: Peace, I am very interested in using your products. However, I want to be sure that I am on the right track. I have a serious problem eliminating waste from my body. My bowels do not move naturally. I have to take something to get any movement. Recently, I visited with a Chinese Herbalist who informed me that I "had" a weak spleen. I began taking Four Gentlemen Teapils along with Yin Chi female performance for energy and smooth move cap. My energy improved tremendously but the bowel movements were minimal. On my next visit he took me off of the Four Gentlemen and put me on Gui Pi Wan Teapils and a detox. I'm not real sure about the contents of the detox caps but my bowels did move a bit more but still not on their own when I finished the detox. Now I am at the point where I feel good still with some bloating in my upper abdomen, very uncomfortable. I would like to work with someone who can help me to understand how to heal my body. Thus, my husband mentioned your name a couple of months ago. He heard about you on a radio show. And, I have a 10-year old daughter who's body is preparing for menstruation. She complains about mild stomach aches more like cramps and some headaches during certain times of the month. I want to know what I can do to assist her body as it transitions into young woman hood. I am thinking of your full body cleanse first. I would love to maybe speak with you and put myself on the best path possible. Thank you.

    A:

    Give your daughter MOON CYCLE FORMULA and FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA (1-2 capsules daily). And/or drink 1 cup of FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily.

    Q: I'm thinking about trying your products the FULL BODY DETOX. I really need to cleanse my body and loose at least 35 pounds. After I had my daughter I got really depressed and let my body go. I'm 5"7 and weight 200 pounds. I want to and need to get back on track be healthy and live along life. And I think that your product could really help me out now and, in the long run.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMENto help you release the weight (waste).

    Q: I started my FULL BODY DETOX yesterday and so far so good. I have been reading books off of the book list you provided in the ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL. I really have great expectations for this detox. Anyway to my question since I have started the detox I can actually feel my organ (I am assuming) moving around. It almost feel like the motion of a child but I know I am not pregnant (hubby had a vasectomy) and plus the sensation is up too high. Have you experienced this yourself or know some else that has experienced this. I have to admit that I have not drank the daily recommended amount of water I am suppose to but I have been eating raw foods and drinking herbal teas.

    A:

    People experience all kinds of things but most report their overall experience, not beginning ones. At this point I don't know what the case could be. Just trust in the healing process and take notes of your daily experiences. This is how you learn about your body. Good luck on your cleanse!

    Q: I am very interested in Dherbs herbal formulas - they appear to be high quality, good formulas. I have a question for you. I eat a vegan diet, about 50% raw foods (sometimes more), get regular exercise, and love to spend time in nature. I am a generally healthy person who rarely gets sick. I have healed myself from asthma and allergies and other ailments by living a healthy lifestyle and using herbs and energy work. However, I do still suffer from cramping during my period (probably endometriosis) and from cervical dysphasia due to HPV. I would love to get these cleared up, too! What do you recommend in terms of your herbal formulas? For example, should I do the whole body detox first, then start in with the ailment specific recommendations, or start everything all at once? Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciate.

    A:

    We would recommend that you first start out with the Full Body Cleanse, followed by the Anti-Viral Kit, followed by the Female Cleanse. These should help you to clear up those unwanted reproductive ailments and provide essential nutrients for female health.

    After this series of cleansing, we also recommend the the following supplements in order to to stay on the path towards whole body wellness.

    Menstrual Cycle Formula
    Female Hormonal Formula
    Female Health Tea
    Anti-Viral Formula

    Q: I recently purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I totally understand that healing is holistic and that changes must occur in diet, lifestyle, and only positive thinking will result in optimal health. I am noticing balding on the right side of my head. Of all the hair care products provided by dherbs.com, I was curious to know if using any of the dherbs.com hair herbs would affect the detox/cleansing regime? If not which would be the most effective in assisting me with hair loss? (Due to financial limitations I can't afford to purchase them all because I just purchased an alkaline water machine that set a brother back)Aside from performing the anti-viral cleanse regime. I eat plenty of cilantro and parsley, drink half my body weight in alkaline water daily, and eliminate stressors out of my life. I was interested in knowing what other follow up actions can I take to help assist me in overcoming this trial (virus) that has changed my life for the better.

    A:

    You have the right attitude and spirit! Kudos to you. For the hair inquiry, you can drink the HAIR-SKIN-NAILS TEA during your detox. In re additional pointers, work on your mind-reprogramming it. Use daily affirmations! Reinvent yourself. Meditate! Perform yoga! perform the "SEA SALT SOAKS" daily! Keep getting knowledge! Just be creative and follow!

    Q: I'm interested in some of your products too for cleansing and giving my body a kick start to my lifestyle changes. Here's what I'm dealing with. 1. PCOS: the insulin resitance and hormonal imbalance is causing lots of issues i.e. acne, hair growth, and irregular cycles maybe infertility and possibly the small cyst on my ovary. (I've come off of the "Medical Pimps" prescribed birth control and metformine and I'm going to weekly acupuncture sessions and drinking a potent Chinese herbal tea daily.) 2. HPV: I just found out I have genital warts and severe abnormal cells on my cervix. I had the cells removed but never went back to check up...the whole thing has turned me off to doctors and how they deal with disease and healing, I felt like I knew more than they did, and mostly becasued I was in tune with my body and they were just prescribing, not willing to really deal with the issue at hand. I'm interested in the following products but would love your advice on which order to take them(to be most effective) or whether I should at all... 1. 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE 2. FULL BODY DETOX 3. ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN 4. TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE They all seem like they'd work well together and in that order. How soon after one another can they be done? Also...This pancreas kit, I dont wanna 'overdo it' but what about that..too much? I should probably schedule a tele-conference, but you're reply would be appreciated for now.

    A:

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! Here's what we would recommend for you (in the proper order):

    1. FULL BODY CLEANSE 2. FEMALE CLEANSE 3. 10-DAY COLON CLEANSE 4. ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN

    Wait about 3,5, or 7 days before you begin your next kit!

    Make sure you drink DETOX TEA and FEMALE HEALTH TEA during all of your cleanses (all 4 of them)!

    Q: My husband has scar tissue on his head. He was hit on the head with a bat by some attackers (years ago). The top of his head is extremely hard like a rock --the entire thing is scar tissue. In the back towards his neck but still on his head is a larger patch of raised scar tissue. It is so severe that he has lost and appears to be losing more hair off the top of his head (I think it's because his skin isn't breathing or getting oxygen. He's tried everything from drinking Aloe Vera and applying this to all sorts of products. Currently he is using the skintight products (razor/hair bump, as well as the coco butter) however after reading your article about alcohol, I know they contain this so I don't want him to keep using it even though we are seeing some larger results than we ever have before with that product. We are both vegetarians. He has been a vegetarian for 15 years. He used to eat soy burgers etc., but has completely cut that out for about 3 months. He is now in his third week of raw food (as prescribed by your website) just drinking the green juice from Bolthouse (algae, wheatgrass, spinach etc.) and eating large spinach and vegetable raw salads. We are using the recipe that you included in your e-books. We will continue on a diet like this for the next year while we cleanse our bodies and keep this lifestyle. However, with all of that, my question for you is-- Do you have any recommendations for him to remove his scar tissue? I thought the OZ OIL would help. In addition, I'd like to buy him the FIBRIOD BUSTER and/or any other fibroid kits- but the website says they are for women (only?). Any recommendations you could make would be most appreciated.

    A:

    I would tell you to keep using natural products (shea butter, OZ OIL, FIBRIOD BUSTER, MSM SULFUR, etc.) and let the healing take place at its own course. The more you focus on what you don't like (his head injury) the more it will magnify (not heal). His body is programmed to heal and it will but you must remain open to let the body heal at its own pace. Just continue to eat, think, and live right. He'll heal! Just give it time! Let nature do her thing!
