5 Natural Cures to Eliminate Cellulite

Fascia Blasting
Posted by Uncertain (LA.) on 12/18/2021

The tools are handheld devices with “claws” you rub vigorously on your body. It supposedly loosens your muscle and fat cells from your Fascia. It is being touted as a painkiller, a way to get rid of cellulite and give your body tone. It is even recommended on a website about growing hair. It supposedly improves circulation and enhances your lymphatic system. Anybody tried this? Could there be other ways to relax your fascia? Just a little concerned about the repeated applications of the tools.

This is not an allergy. ACV is cleaning your system, hence what you call rash or allergy.

We have to shift our paradigm. Disease is not what we used to think it is.

Cheers!

Zeolite
Posted by Shannon (Washington Dc) on 09/11/2018

Thank you for writing on cellulite!!! I've looked everywhere for something that works—and maybe now I found it. My question is how do you take the zeolite??? Do you swallow something?? Or do you put something on the skin of your legs?? If you can remember the brand name, please tell me that also. Thank you again!!!!

Hi Sasha, I started using borax for hair wash and in bathtub too, few months ago. As for bathtub, I read online that ppl use 1/2 cup on average, some upto a cap of borax, with 1cup of epsom salts. I also add vitamin c 1gr powder as well, for water filter effect.

I started soaking my hair first at the end of the bath, before washing hair with baby shampoo. later on, I stopped using baby shampoo, but just mixed some baking soda and borax handful and rub into my scalp. then it happened to run out of baking soda, so just used borax alone, rubbed and let it sit for 5 min then rinse. I feel this procedure suits me, will see overtime if effective as detox. however, my skin moles are flaring up a bit if I stay longer with borax. not sure yet if good or bad sign, but it reminds me of times when I tried to get rid of them, area irritated due to applying some Apple Cider Vinegar or similar.

I now take 3 capsules of magnesium citrate 3 times a day and it has worked the best for my cellulite, its a high dose but I may even take 4 capsules 3 times a day and see if that completely gets rid of my cellulite, I take a lot because of my severe constipation so you may not need that much.


Psyllium
Posted by Nicole (Melbourne) on 07/25/2017

I think colon cleanses are great for cellulite, I think psyllium husk has helped you empty your bowels which is why its helped you so much. I take magnesium citrate 3 capsules 3 times a day after each meal, I do it to help with my severe constipation and I've noticed that its worked best for my cellulite, my cellulite is almost gone. I may higher the dose to help empty my bowels and completely get rid of my cellulite :)


Zeolite
Posted by Nicole (Melbourne ) on 07/25/2017

Zeolite was awesome for cellulite but it caused me a lot of constipation and ive already been suffering with constipation my whole life so I didn't need it to get worse. I stopped the zeolite which I really liked but had to and started taking magnesium citrate to help empty my bowels, well emptying my bowels or just the magnesium has been the best thing so far that I've tried for cellulite, I take a high dose because I have terrible constipation but you may not need so much, I take 3 capsules 3 times a day :) good luck

I have now found the best treatment for cellulite is magnesium citrate, I take a lot because it helps me with constipation, I take 3 capsules 3 times a day and it has severely reduced my cellulite, I might try and take 4 capsules 3 times a day and let you know how I go.

Hello,

I'm sorry about your traumatic experience! That sounds horrible!

ACV will help with weight loss, but not if you're eating sugary, processed foods. I don't know what you're eating, but try to watch processed foods and white foods (white bread, pasta, sugar). Also, I know a lot of people recommend taking ACV with honey, but I find that honey stalls weight loss. Just try to get used to drinking ACV in water with no sweeteners.

Stick with it, don't overeat on anything but fresh vegetables, and watch processed food.

Thank you so much, for the lady with the extensive post on washing with baking soda, using organic apple cider vinegar, for toner, and coconut oil for moisture. Also her other tips with borax, etc. The most helpful tips ever, and I am 55, and have studied holistic health for 25 years. I have made a friend in the Philipines, snd she can find these too. God Bless you, Earth Clinic posters, Never stop this site!!!! Forever grateful! :-)


Collagen, Gotu Kola
Posted by Nicole (Melbourne) on 03/17/2016

I now oil pull with 1 large tbsp every morning on an empty stomach and that works really well for cellulite, I stopped with the gotu kola and continues to take collagen :) if my cellulite doesn't go away completely I will try to oil pull 3 times a day :)

Oil pulling with a large tbsp of organic unrefined virgin coconut oil every morning for 20 mins has really helped reduce my cellulite, I still have the stubborn cellulite but I'm trying to drink more water. Some people oil pull 3 times a day, I will see how I go and might try it 3 times a day :)

Zeolite
Posted by Nicole (Melbourne) on 11/17/2015

I've had a lot of luck with collagen supplements and gotu kola supplements, I don't eat right or exercise (I'm trying) But I just got some activated zeolite but I don't know much about it. On the internet there isn't much information, does anyone know how safe it is or what the side effects are?


Collagen, Gotu Kola
Posted by Nicole (Melbourne) on 10/12/2015

I get my collagen from iherb.com, That's also where I get my gotu kola from as well. My cellulite on my arms and stomach is only visible when I pinch my skin so I guess it's still there, it's just not as visible but it's still visible around my upper thighs and butt but I'm much less depressed about it and am going to try a healthier lifestyle to help hopefully get rid of it completely. Good luck.

Hi there, I had very bad cellulite on my stomach legs, thighs, buttocks and arms, this made me very depressed.

I take 2 large tbs of powder collagen supplements, I should take another 2 tbs at night but I get lazy.

I also take 2 capsules of 475mg of Gotu Kola in the morning.

And I use a sulux wash cloth in the shower which is supposed to help with cellulite.

My cellulite is 90% gone, I feel much better about it and can wear shorts again, the cellulite on my arms and stomach are gone. I'm also going to try and eat healthier and exercise maybe that will completely get rid of it from my legs.

Good luck everyone.

Coconut, Grapefruit and Castor Oils

Coconut Oil, Castor Oil and Grapefruit essential oil mix for Cellulite.

I read about this on another web site and tried, today is the 5th day and I'm happy to report that very bad cellulite on my upper legs reduced significantly.

Here's what I do, mix about 1 tbs each of Coconut Oil and Castor Oil and 5 drops of Grapefruit essential oil in a glass jar.

Take a teaspoon of the mix in my hand and rub my hands together to melt coconut and create heat since castor oil works best with heat. Then massage wherever is needed, fast to create heat.

I did this morning and at night, twice a day.


Coconut Oil
Posted by Kat (Florida, US) on 11/08/2014

Mix olive oil with vitamin E , Vitamin A, coconut oil and aloe vera gel. Mix in blender. This prevents stretch marks as well as wrinkles and does not break out the skin. Keep it on your face and skin as often as possible. It does not leave oily residue and it feels wonderful. It works well.


Baking Soda
Posted by Dorthy (United States) on 08/15/2014

Baking soda if scrubbed on the skin helps to remove any toxins and dead skin.

Coconut oil will clog your pores. Its not great for the face. Try hazelnut, jojoba or sunflower oil. And you can mix in a little tea tree or lavendar essential oils for the bacteria.

In Spanish, the word for describing the dimples in your tighs is celulitis too. It's a consequence of eating simply carbs like bread, pasta, rice and potatos. As soon as you avoid those, like 72 hours laters you start to see a great improvement in that condition. I have learned that eliminating those from my diet, I immediatly start losing weight, improving my mental clarity, stop and release water retention, etc. I really believe our organisms are not meant to digest grains. They all come with a hard shell that we have to get rid of (bran) or soaked them in water before cooking them, like beans and chick peas. It's nature trying to tell us something here? In the wild no animal eat them, they eat other species or plants. Those are my conclusions.


Zeolite
Posted by Wc (Los Angeles, Ca Usa) on 10/01/2011

I've had cellulite on my buttocks pretty much all my life, even though I'm quite thin. Wasn't too worried about it. Started on powdered zeolite a couple of weeks ago for an overall detox and was pretty surprised to note a dramatic reduction in cellulite in my problem area. Zeolite helps remove toxins from the body and I've read that cellulite is little more than trapped toxins, so it makes sense. Very pleased with the progress and look forward to the results getting even better with time.


Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Maeryn (Calgary, Ab, Canada) on 09/15/2011

I am allergic to apple juice. Have been since I was a baby, so there is no getting around it. Doesn't matter if it is organic or not, I still get a rash at the base of my neck. (the allergy is very bizzare because I can eat apples without a problem and juice them at home) I used diluted ACV on my face. It really helps to close the pores on my nose, but it seemed to make my forehead more inflammed. I have combo skin. Dry cheeks and oily t-zone.
For cellulite, would I ingest the acv, or rub it on alternately with coconut oil?

I never really had cellulite, until after having my baby by C-section birth. It was mainly on my stomach. I started putting distilled white vinegar on my stomach everyday. After a few months the "ugly skin" was gone.

To Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France - I agree that the words cellulitis and cellulite are very similar and that can be quite confusing. However, any word ending in "itis" means inflammation, I. E. , bronchitis, arthritis, tonsililitis. Cellulitis is a severe inflammation of the cells (derma) brought on by bacteria that needs immediate medical attention. Hope this helps clear up the confusion. I always enjoy your informative posts and book reviews.


Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Francisca (Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France) on 07/11/2011

Sorry but I think that you missed my point, Linda. I was not talking about the difference between both problems, at least that wasn't my main goal, my question was whether it was wise to have two very different problems with almost similar names which will provoke a lot of confusion! To make things worse at least in Dutch Cellulite is called Cellulitis and that can't be changed as I believe that Cellulite /Cellulitis was here long before Cellulitis as an illness appeared (at least I had never heard of it till recently). I just don't manage to believe how the two problems got to have such similar names, after all there are so many names to chose from when you name an illness.... As someone else said here recently she two got confused the first time she heard the word Cellulitis!

Anything with the word itis at the end usually mean "inflammation". Vitamin C in mega doses usually will clear up an infection.

Cellulite is when your thighs look dimpley caused by fat under the skin. Cellulitis is a deep skin infection.


Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Francisca (Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France) on 07/10/2011

I am sorry but I still find cellulitis and cellulite very confusing! Do you have the goose bumps on your legs women suffer from nowadays or the more complicated illness which is not related in the least? I mixed up both names a while ago and now I have found the explanation for that. Well, two explanations, not only both names are very similar but on the top of that, in Dutch, cellulite is often referred to as cellulitis. As I speak Dutch when I lived there I always heard people talking about cellulitis and read quite a bit about it as I happen to have quite a bit on my legs. Now I don't live there anymore I had completely forgotten about the word till I read it on this site and immediately connected it to the under skin problem, not to something more complicated.

My question is, is it wise to have two conditions with such similar names? And on the top of everything else have an illness with a name which is exactly the same as a skin problem in another language. This will lead to a lot of confusion! Therefore I couldn't understand why a lady here was so worried about her cellulitis..... well, she didn't mean an unsightly problem but a severe illness but how is one to know? Weird to say the least.....

Rebounding, Dry Skin Brushing

5 out of 5 stars

Rebounding on a mini trapoline and dry skin brushing with a natural bristle body brush before showering has significantly reduced my cellulite. By dry brushing and rebounding, the toxins that are build up are broken down and the lympathic system is cleaned out hence the elimination of cellulite. Must do for at least two weeks to see results. Good Luck!

Try the vinegar without the honey. It doesn't matter if the honey is organic or raw, it still has sugar and will make you gain weight.

I have suffered from cellulite since I was 15 years old. Have tried alkaline/raw/elimination diets, creams, oils, fasting, endermologie (works temporarily), no caffeine, ACV, colonics, lymphatic massage and nothing really seemed to work as a "cure". My cellulite is of the hard kind, I am an athlete and found it impossible to get those few small dimples to budge from my legs. I always knew that cellulite contained toxins and tried various methods of juicing and purging to hopefully eliminate them, much to my chagrin. By chance, I started reading up on Zeolite, which is similar to Bentonite, for its detoxing abilities, and started a protocol to try to reduce my bodies toxic load before getting pregnant. After about a month, I was just stunned to see that my cellulite was disappearing, and at that point I had just given up on caring about it anymore. Update: 12 months later, my cellulite is the best it has ever been since I did the detox before getting pregnant, and this is the 9th month. Women around the world complain that pregnancy makes their cellulite worse. I think that Zeolite detox protocol can have amazing long term results for hard cellulite. Hard cellulite is not subcuntaneous and needs a targeted protocol that can penetrate deep within to remove the underlying toxins. I was also using an infrared sauna and drinking lots of Penta water to aid the flush. I would also assume that for cases worse than mine, using an ultrasound method of fat liquidation, like Dermasonic or Lipo Ex would further assist in the process. Rock on

Coffee Grounds

Coffee is the ultimate weapon against cellulite!

I am 18 years old and due to a small weight gain i noticed i was getting cellulite on my legs. Ive always had some but its gotten alot more visible. I hated wearing shorts and skirts that showed my legs. So one day i read about using used coffee grounds on your cellulite trouble spots. I decided to give it a try i had nothing to lose except cellulite. So i took the used coffee grounds from my coffee maker mixed it with lotion to give it a consistency that will make the coffee cling to my legs. You can also use oils such as coconut oil or olive oil. Whatever floats your boat. (: I applied it, left it on for about 10 mins and then massaged my legs (with the coffee still on them), rinsed it off, looked in the mirror and instantly the skin on my legs looked "firmer" and there was alot less cellulite "indents" hah. It absolutely works. However remember, the appearance of cellulite can be reduced for a certain time period. It does come back eventually. I suggest do the coffee treatment 2 or 3 times a week. Do not overdo it especially if you have sensitive skin because you will break out in little red spots, nothing too serious however. Goes away with a little application of ACV or on its own in a few days. Combine with exercise and overall reduction of body fat (if necessary) and you will have the smooth even looking legs every female wants.

Organic coconut oil and dry brushing which is very popular in Europe for circulation and for eliminating cellulite. I have a nice brush with a handle on it that I purchased from the spa. My massuese mentioned to me you always brush in the direction of the lymphatic system so that it can circulate it out of the system quickly also increase you water intake before beginning the dry brush massage this help the system elminate toxin. For problem areas I used to spend at least ten minutes total and followed by a hot shower and I step out of the hot shower and while my pores are still open I put coconut oil all over my body and have noticed a dramatic decrease very close to eliminating all the cellulite. So it does work.

Hello, Well I have been taking organic apple cider vinger for about 3 to 4 weeks, Some one drove into the back of me in my car and my blood pressure kept going up when they tired to take it (White Coat symdrome) any way when up to the Royal Hospital and was weighed there, when I went back two weeks later they weighed me again and I had put on two pounds in weight.

I just want to know if any one else has put on weight using apple cider vinger (organic) and honey. It says no fat but it still has plenty of sugar. Can any one advise me, I want to lower my cholestrol and take my blood pressure down a bit and lose weight but after taking this remedy nothing has happened. I did like the drink maybe the cider vinger on it own might help. You have all these great cures but none are working.

Massage, Coffee Grounds

Worked Temporarily

I have found that the what works best for me is to massage my thighs using pressure and kneading motion for about 10 minutes on each thigh. You can use an intense moisturizer or the best that I've found contains seaweed extract in it, it's contents seem to help firm the skin. Do this everyday it will help break up the cellulite to give you a smoother look.

I have also done research and experimented on myself the use of caffeine (coffee grounds) on my thighs and you can almost see an instant result. I moistened the regular coffee grounds, then applied them all over my thighs. Next I massaged for about 5 min each thigh and reapplied so my thighs were covered. I wrapped my legs with cling wrap and placed warm towels around my legs and kept doing so for about 10 minutes. The caffeine tightens your skin almost instantly however this method needs to be repeated hourly it's more for an instant effect.

I am in my early twenties and I have cellulite. I have done extensive research on cellulite and can not seem to find a remedy anywhere. In fact most of the research I have done says that research is hereditary and you can never get rid of it. I fail to believe that. I know that there is a natural way out there. I am hoping that you or one of the readers would have any suggestions for a cure besides exercise which I do and it has not helped at all.
