Q: What is the Chinese medical view of cellulite, and how can I remedy the cellulite on my legs?

A:   Traditional Chinese medicine works to maintain a healthy and balanced body system. A healthy weight can be maintained when the body is working optimally, stress is low, and spirits are peaceful and content. When the body becomes out of balance and digestive weaknesses arise, your metabolism shifts and adipose tissue (fat cells) and weight accumulate.

Exercise and building muscle is the most effective way to reduce adipose tissue or cellulite. It is very important to get enough sleep and keep stress at a low level. Enjoy a healthy diet of whole foods and 60 ounces of pure, room temperature water daily. Avoid sugars, fried and greasy foods, and cold foods. This is important not only to keep off extra weight, but also to keep your digestive system working at its best!

I suggest you arrange a visit with a licensed practitioner to discuss your condition and obtain a specific treatment. Herbs can help you to reduce cellulite in your body. It is important to get an herbal formula that is customized for you.
