Herbal Treatment for Cellulite

Cellulite appears on the surface of the skin in the form of either ripples or dimples, and is the result of fat depositing unevenly on that section of the body. It is much more common in women than in men, and it is estimated that more than 90 percent of women who have gone through puberty have it in some area of their body. Its appearance can be increased by additional physical inactivity or excessive stress. Commercial creams are marketed to help the appearance, but herbs can also be beneficial in limiting the presence of cellulite, especially when they are used in conjuction with Lipotron treatments.

Kelp is said to help reduce cellulite because it stimulates the thyroid, which causes the body to burn off the excess fat. Ginkgo biloba is advertised as having the same effect, but neither of the two have proven or guaranteed results or effectiveness. Herbs that claim to reduce cellulite by limiting fluid buildup, such as birch tea or sweet clover, are often ineffective because cellulite buildup is not caused by an increase in fluid levels.

For many women, herbal cellulite treatment is a beneficial compliment to medical cellulite removal. Body contouring in Marin can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Body contouring treatment options are generally pain free, and results are often the most beneficial after several treatments.

Along with body contouring treatments, the best way to reduce cellulite’s appearance is to exercise and eat right to keep the fat levels lower in your body, but you may find that using alternate methods such as herbal therapy as a supplement to these treatments can help you on your journey to eliminating cellulite’s appearance.
