What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is nothing but normal fat underneath your skin. According to Ayurvedic practitioners, cellulite can be caused by a number of factors such as toxicity, hormonal imbalance, endocrine imbalance, water retention and poor lymphatic drainage.
The dimpled bulges around your thighs, arms and stomach show that your body is suffering from an inflammatory disorder which requires some internal cleansing and detoxification. Regular massage with herbal slimming oils, deep breathing, dry brushing and exercising can all support the body to get rid of toxic fatty tissue.

This will ensure that you do not have any vitamin deficiencies or other diseases due to malnutrition. Low energy foods like vegetables, fruits, lean meat, fish, grains, and beans can help you lose those extra pounds. On the other hand, high-energy dense foods like red meat, deep fried snacks, fast foods; cake, burger and pizza etc. provide you empty calories without much nutrition.
