Cellulite – is it a vanity thing or a health issue? It may be news to some that my natural therapy training took me to PhD studies quite a few years back now. Hardly surprising – considing I had to finish about 10 years of studies just to be considered even remotely close to a GP. Not that having ‘Doctor’ in front of my name would make me any more smart or worthy, but it’s the way society sees us – and sadly, some will only trust a naturopath if we have those two little letters in front of our name (or in my case, the 3 letters after my name). So, what was the subject of my thesis?
My research led me to the conclusion that cellulite, like ALL health symptoms, is not a stand-alone issue. In fact, even though it is predominantly a female issue, men can and do suffer from it (but just called fat) and yes, it is attached to a L-O-N-G chain of chronic and even terminal health issues and afflictions. It’s a sad thing that so many women I see have been told it’s just part of being a woman…
That’s not to say you rush off and panic about some hidden sickness. Basically, my research led me to realise that the lymphatic system is possibly the most overlooked and undervalued system of the body. Think about it – like a sewer, the lymphatic system is invisible. It is responsible for taking the waste away that your blood cannot flush into the intestines for excretion. Over time, the lines become gluggy and built up. Yes, we all know about swollen glands, but what about totally bunged up lymphatic pathways?
We should all be able to gently rub our skin with our fingertips without tiny nodules being palpable. Yet today, almost 100% of the patients I see, if I run my fingers over their skin, all display rugged little bumps and irregularities. Run your finger over a child’s skin and even if they are chubby, they will have incredibly smooth skin. Yet within 20 years it feels like a microscopic off-road track. It came as no surprise that almost 100% of case subjects had symptoms of chronic illness and obesity, even though very thin, young and seemingly healthy girls could also have the dimply demons.
Cellulite, as ugly as it is, is still ignored by the health profession – very frustrating from an iridology angle – a blocked lymphatic system is VERY visible… And considering it’s linked to lymphatic cancer, lymphadenitis, and even elephantiasis, I really can’t believe that it’s one of the many diseases that are addressed AFTER the fact – considering it’s so easy to address early on.
As one GP said to me, “Once you develop such a bad blockage of the lymphatics that you need a wheelchair, we have very good services and aids in place that could help with mobility.” So, for the thousands out there who simply seize up thanks to mismanagement, we would have to just accept an invalid life? Another GP once said to me ‘Just eat less calories’ – oh, so you mean less calories than the mostly salad and rawfood diet I was already eating? Less calories than the regular fasting I was doing? So much misinformation out there!
In the 90s, motivated as much by fear as I was by clinical frustration, I developed a two pronged program – internal drops and external body brushing and lotion which could loosen up what had become untouchable internally, by either the lymphatic or circulatory vessels. No, cellulite will do no more to your health than cause embarrassment, but it is very closely associated, out outward sign of true, chronic sickness – not quite causing it, but just may possibly be seen as a side effect of a wide range of sickness.
For example, why is it linked only to around 40% of obesity patients? Why is it so common in diabetes, but only in the abdomen? Why do those with leg cellulite display more heart disease symptoms than anyone else? Why is it very common in depression cases? Why do generations of unvaccinated and unmedicated families show no signs of lymphatic ill health? Of course, these are all serious issues that need addressing and simply removing cellulite wont get rid of the other symptoms. But for now, let’s look at removing the ugly side of these health issues. So, what do you do about it?
Around the time I did my thesis, a French company released (an unnamed) miracle treatment for cellulite that, thanks to overpricing, left my patients rushing to my clinic in droves to buy the treatment I had formulated for less than half the price. At the clinic I was practicing in at the time, we had wealthy ladies from Singapore actually fly to Perth just to buy this heavily promoted fad in bulk. What they spent on one trip could fund an entire village for a year – including their health problems – but such was the clever media coverage and advertising.
Meanwhile for my long story short, lots of success, lots of incredible results (including knock-on effects on other associated symptoms) and hand written thanks (yes, in the days before PCs and facebook) – but without financial support and a ton of attack thanks to the TGA and Australian medical association, I was forced to stop selling it. In short, and in the TGA’s own words, ‘If your product does not have the capacity to cause harm, we cannot approve or register it.’
There are treatments – it takes an alkaline diet and a safe transdermal cream to break down the blockages. Treat the entire body – remove toxic build up and fibrous networks of unnecessary gunk. Unfortunately my products are no longer on the market but I have found products that work just as well. So, what steps?
It’s not just fat that causes cellulite – in fact one of the very first really bad cases I saw as a teen was with my ærobics instructor – she was as fit as anyone I knew but suffered badly, only in the thigh area – she ate healthy and played sport all day, but was addicted to bread and other processed carbs – a massive portion of cellulite is linked to both carbohydrate and protein toxicity (ask why bodybuilders and athletes who overdo the protein and carb intake all end up suffering the worst from the visible effects) – your lymphatics become blocked and engorged, trapping other foreign particles that form the glue in your arteries – calcium, parasites, waste…
Gluten is one of the main causative criminals in cellulite formation – it’s amazing at just what a difference removing gluten from the diet makes. Massage is a great step, as is JET type therapy, so is manual lymphatic drainage. Colonic irrigation will begin a great flush but if you are not up for that, there is a great internal flush link below. At-home coffee enemas shock the liver and in turn, the lymphatics and are a great way to remove unnecessary fats. cupping therapy easily done at home will also bring rapid results. I am currently working with an orgone scientist to develop an exclusive cupping set to have even more harmonising benefits.
Hot lemon drinks in the morning – just fresh lemon juice in hot water, is the best start to a day you can have. Add a heaped teaspoon of coconut oil or eat that separately – it works like soap upon waste and fats in the body. Dry body brushing gently encourages your lymphatics and capillary tone and gets things moving.
But how do you flush your body? How do you stop it from happening again once you succeed?

Make sure you cut down on processed carbs – processed foods in general. Get healthy. Make chronic health issues history by making cellulite history. Eradicating this issue is by no means an easy one – but it really is that ‘simple’.
Medicine is yet to admit that ALL of our health issues, in all their complex forms, are intertwined. We need to think less of diagnoses and more of what our bodies are doing, then act accordingly. Do you have a sedentary lifestyle? Then just get moving! Swim, walk, breathe deeply, stretch and stop slouching. Stop wearing tight clothing as this was proven many years ago to be linked to circulatory damage that leads to lympœdema. I have seen women who were previously size 8 and exotic dancers, end up size 26 because, despite good healthy living habits, their circulation was cut by their clothing, over a long period of time.
