Cellulite, a common and harmless condition affects up to 90% of women, there is no known cure, however there are many factors that can contribute to cellulite. Laura Jones, an Acupuncturist and TCM practitioner here at Content explains that in Chinese Medicine one of the main causes of cellulite is a weak digestion. ‘When digestion becomes impaired, waste products and toxins accumulate in your system and are deposited as cellulite on the legs and thighs. The Liver and Kidney, the body’s two detoxifying organs, if not functionally optimally, can also contribute to the formation of cellulite – these two organs can become weakened through stress, smoking, alcohol, excessive consumption of sugar and caffeine, overwork and inadequate rest – all of which will affect the body’s ability to eliminate waste products and toxins, and affect skin-tone.’
