I've been taking the evco for about 1 month now. I took it because I heard I might lose weight. When I first started the oil, I had diary for about 2 days. But, that stopped. As of now, the following conditions have cleared. The most important first:

1) No more bleeding hemmoroids. I was bleeding 2 or 3 times a week. I was going to go to the dr. but I started the oil and 1 week later, no more blood.
2) No more athletes foot. No more body odor or foot odor, or bad breath.
3) No more yeast infections.
4) Not one pimple on my face. I would get at least 1 pimples per week. I have now soft shiny skin and hair, my wrinkles have gone.
5) No more PMS symptoms: puffiness, mood swings, headaches.
6) And yes. I got into my size 6's which I haven't been able to in 5 years! My stomach is gone! No more cellulite. And I still kept all my muscle. Only the fat is gone. I started at 160 lbs and now, about 150. What more can I say?

Wow! Where do I start. I have been obsessed with your website for a couple of months now. It started when I was looking for an alternative to visiting a Dr. yet again for recurring UTI's and yeast infections. Well, that was easy. I started using Borax, Sea Salt, and I started oil pulling. These of course gave me more benefits than just no UTI's, or yeast infections. This has been an expensive venture. I am constantly browsing natural food stores, and have used several other remedies. My sinuses are amazingly better, and I think one of my favorite discoveries here is VCO. I am a youthful looking 49 year old. But I have always had very oily skin and have fought acne my entire life. I started washing with Baking Soda, using a ACV toner and following with VCO. No more acne. NONE! I bathe in Borax and Epsom Salt and use VCO as a moisturizer. My cellulite is going away. And, the rest of my skin seems to be doing an age reversal. I have a lot of sun damage for years in the sun in my youth in California. And the main reason I am praising this site; after having such amazing results from all I have listed so far. I was given the courage to stop taking my antidepressants. I have clinical depression. One of those things that runs in the family. I was convinced that I would be on antidepressants for the rest of my life. There was no way I was going to risk feeling like I remember feeling. I started lowering my dosages (I was taking Wellbutrin and Zoloft without any noticable side effects). I purchased some Rhdiola, and just waited to see what would happen when I stopped completely. Keeping the Rhodiola handy for when/if I needed it. Last night I was really edgy. I was very crabby with my kids (I got a late start here and have three at home, ages 15, 13 & 8) until one of them asked me about my medications, and I realized where I was. Later I found myself on the verge of tears for no good reason. I took my first Rhodiola this morning, and within a few hours knew I was feeling better. I took another one before lunch, and I cannot believe how good I feel. IT WORKS! I never would have believed anyone would get me off my medications. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU! And I'm sure my kids thank you. Now I will be looking for the 5htp

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.

Better But With Side Effects

I just want to quickly join this wonderful post and thank you all from the bottom of my heart for sharing your experiences. Recently, I started to use coconut oil internally and also as a moisturizer due to my dry skin and slight cellulite on my thighs. The cellulite disappeared within 2-3 weeks. What a joy! However, I got very ill. From your experiences I know now that the coconut was detoxifying my digestive system. I was miserable for two weeks, not knowing what was happening to me. I realize now how much I needed it. I salute to the coconut oil.

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.

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.

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.

My cellulite is getting worse with age! I need advise on how and how much evco to use to get rid of it. Do you rub it on or take it internally or both? is evco better the just plain organic coconut oil?

Rebounding, Dry Skin Brushing

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!

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

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.

Apple Cider Vinegar

In 1972 my father was in his late 40's. Being from Wisconsin his diet included quite a bit of fatty food. Most of his weight was in his belly. Not uncommon in Wisconsin. At that time, I don't know where he found it, but he came home one day and announced that he was going to cut out 25% of the fat in his diet and drink 8 oz of luke warm water every night with 1 Tbsp of Cider Vinegar and 1 Tbsp of Honey. I was still very young, and had a problem with bed wetting. He gave me his mixture one night before bed and told me that I would never wet the bed again, I didn't.

I now suggest organic for both and Raw Honey. In a matter of two months, all of his belly weight had disappeared.

To add to that what I have learned over the years...

I am not Jewish, but NOT mixing milk products with meat is also very helpful since it it easier to digest out food.
What Western medical doctors won't tell us also is that when we combine our protein and carbs they turn into fat in our bodies immediately. We do need carbs, but complex carbs rather than all of the processed white flour and white sugar. Processed food is poison more than anything. We really can't trust the FDA. They allow chemicals to be put in our food. I believe that so many health problems are caused by chemicals that our bodies just don't agree with. Western doctors will just keep treating the symptoms.

Try Oatmeal and sprouted grain breads and pastas, you'll be surprised at how quickly you get use to them.
Lean protein and vegetables together.
Don't get on the scale every day, you'll just frustrate yourselves.
When I got pregnant with my son I weighed 125 pounds. I ate like a foodball player during my pregnancy. I gained over 100 pounds! He was a big beautiful 10 lb baby, lol. After nursing for a year and continuing to eat well I lost it all.
Look at the size of your bone structure and don't pressure yourself. Not all of us are meant to be skinny, just healthy and in proportion. Consider your genetic background.

I believe that Cider Vinegar is an amazing remedy for just naturally cleansing out our bodies, not just breaking down fat. Bath in it too. Try a full cup in a bath and massage cellulite. You will need to increase your water intake. I weigh 140 pounds now and I drink almost a gallon of water a day.

I just started Oil Pulling for my overall health and dental since I don't have a fortune to spend on my teeth. Bless all of you and your health. You can do it!

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 have been using ACV for just under 2 weeks and I cannot believe, my cellulite thighs are toning up! I am 60 lbs over weight and cellulite has been an issue forever despite exercise and nutrition. Since I started the ACV, I notice the dimples in my thighs are disappearing! I cannot believe it but it is true!

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.

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.

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.

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'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.

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.

After a colonoscopy last month I was suffering from constipation for the first time in my life, so I started taking psyllium (bought in bulk from a natural foods store). At first I had a lot of gas and some abdominal discomfort, because I was taking too much. I found out that it is better to start slow--about a teaspoonful in 8oz of water, gradually building up to 1-2 tablespoons. I have been taking this amount daily for the past month and am noticing a significant decrease in waist size and LOSS OF ABDOMINAL CELLULITE.I am thrilled!

NB: For the past year I have also followed a low fat diet, mostly plant based, no processed foods. I also do 30-45 minutes of cardio (swimming or running) 5-6 days per week. But still couldn't completely shed a pot belly and cellulite. Then I started taking psyllium. WOW. At the age of 54 I figured I was stuck with the dreaded "spare tire" around the middle. Not so! I am not sure if the effect would be so dramatic if I were not exercising and eating such a healthy diet...

Also there is some impressive scientific research, very reputable, indicating that psyllium can lower high blood pressure, blood glucose levels, and high cholesterol. It contributes to improved cardiac health by reducing atherosclerosis. Psyllium has been used for centuries in Indian and Chinese medicine to fight gout and inflammation. Wonderful stuff!

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 :)

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 :)

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.
