Back pain can be quite tricky. The large majority of Americans will suffer from issues regarding their back at some stage during their lives. Moreover, for a third of them, therapy and treatments simply won’t resolve the issue. This is when back problems will generally become chronic. Is there a real remedy out there like yoga for back pain or Pilates that can permanently get rid of back pain?

Unbeknownst to most who live in the western world, there are several cultures around the globe where the problem of back pain barely exists (if at all). There is such a tribe in the center of India where they reported basically none at all. The discs of their spines regarded few signs of degeneration as people grew older.

Many statues that you may see when looking at ancient Greek cultures display a J-shaped spine as opposed to the S-shaped spine we see in modern western cultures. The statues’ backs are almost completely flat until the very bottom, where it bows out so the buttocks are behind the spine.

A well-known acupuncturist from Palo Alto, California believes that she may have discovered why they report significantly fewer instances of back pain. She’s trekked around the globe studying cultures with few accounts of reported back pain. She studied how they sit, stand, and walk. Today, she is sharing her conclusions with back pain sufferers in efforts to help people across the United States.

Around 20 years earlier, Esther Gokhale began to have issues with her back after she’d been pregnant with her first child. “It was excruciating pain. I could not sleep at night,” she claimed. “I was going for walks around the block every two hours. I was completely crippled.”

Esther had what is known as a herniated disc (A condition which refers to a problem with a rubbery disk between the spinal bones). Eventually, she needed to have a surgical operation to rectify it. However, after about a year, she had another herniated disc. “They wanted to conduct another surgery on my back. You do not want to make a habit out of back surgery,” she says.

Being fed up with the pain and surgeries, Esther needed a permanent remedy for her back pain. She was not swayed Western medicine could provide it. Esther began to think outside of the box. An idea came to her: “Visit cultures where they aren’t experiencing these crippling problems and find out what they are doing differently.”

So Esther researched discoveries from anthropologists, like Noelle Perez-Christiaens, which assessed postures of these indigenous cultures. Likewise, she researched physical therapy techniques, like the Feldenkrais Method and the Alexander Technique.

During the following ten years, Esther traveled to populations around the globe that are distant from modern, Western life. Esther traveled to Aboriginal tribes in Australia, small fishing villages in Portugal, the mountains of Ecuador, and remote tribes in West Africa.

“I visited villages where every child under age four was crying because they were scared to see somebody with white skin — they had never seen a white person before,” Esther says.

Esther had taken video and photo of people that sat on the ground weaving, walked with buckets of water on their heads, or collected firewood for hours.

“I have pictures in my book of two women who worked seven to nine hours everyday, bent over, gathering water chestnuts,” Esther said. “They’re actually quite old, but the truth of the matter is they don’t have any back pain.”

Esther attempted to find out what all of these different peoples had in common. The very first thing that arose was the curvature of their spines. They have a regal-like posture that it is quite compelling, and it is very different from American’s spines.

When you view the shape of an American’s spine from the side, it is shaped like the letter S. It bows outwards at the top and inward towards the pelvis.

However, Esther did not see the S-shaped spine in people who do not have pain in their back.

“That S shape isn’t natural,” Esther says. “It is a spine with a J-shaped that you want.”

As a matter of fact, if you take a look at depictions from the works of da Vinci or even a book from Gray’s Anatomy circa 1901, the spinal column is not at all like a deeply curved S. It is quite a bit flatter down to the pelvic area. Near the pelvis, it bends outward to push the buttocks out. Again, so that the spinal column appears more like a J than an S.

So Esther conducted several exercises (as we discuss toward the end) to force her spinal column into the ideal J shape. Over the course of doing these simple exercises and maintaining proper postures as much as possible, he back pain actually subsided completely.

Then Esther also realized she had the potential help others as well. She developed this set of exercises into a routine anyone could follow, wrote an entire book about it, and even started a studio in the downtown Palo Alto area to teach classes.

Moreover, she has helped Matt Drudge from the Drudge Report and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki. She has even taught classes at Facebook, Google, and companies around the US. In Silicon Valley, she is referred to as the “posture guru.”

Every year, doctors from around the Bay Area refer numerous patients to Esther. Dr. Neeta Jain is one of them, an internist working at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.

Yoga For Back Pain?

She puts Esther’s techniques in the same category as Pilates and yoga for back pain. The fact that her techniques haven’t been testing in a clinical trial doesn’t bother her at all.

“If people are discovering things that are helpful to them like yoga for back pain, and it isn’t doing any harm, then why should we have to wait for a trial?” Jain asked.

“The J-shaped spine is what you will see in statues of Greek gods and goddesses. It is also what you see in young children. It is good design,” Esther says.

However there still is a big looming question here: Is Esther right? Do people in Western cultures just don’t know how to stand properly anymore?

Scientists just do not know yet, says Dr. Mummaneni, a neurosurgeon at the University of California, San Francisco’s Spine Center. There is yet to be a conclusive medical study on traditional cultures to understand why some report lower numbers of back pain cases, he says. The fact is, science has yet to document the shapes of their spines.

“I would love to go and take X-rays of indigenous peoples and compare it to those of the Western world,” Mummaneni said. “I believe that it would be quite helpful.”

However there are many reasons why postures of Americans, along with the shape of their spinal column, might vary from those of indigenous cultures, says Dr. Mummaneni. To start, Americans tend to be much taller and heavier.

“Lets say you have a quite a bit of fat built up in the belly. That would likely pull the weight forward around the lower lumbar or bottom of your spine,” Dr. Mummaneni said . “This would force the spine to bend, so people that are thinner in physique most likely have less of a curvature” hence they are more likely to have a spinal column that resembles a J rather than an S.

Westerners, especially Americans, are also not quite as active as those in traditional cultures. “I think especially the sitting down and sedentary lifestyle leads to a lack of muscle endurance and tone. This furthermore leads to a lack of postural stability due to the muscles tending to get weaker” says Mummaneni.

Most people know that having weakness in the ab muscles can quickly lead to back pain. In fact, Mummaneni claims that strengthening the core muscles may just be the very secret to Esther’s and all indigenous cultures’ resolution of back pain.

To put it another way, it is not specifically that the spine shaped like a J is the ideal spinal shape or even the healthiest. It is what actually goes into that J shape of the spine that makes the difference. “You must make use of abdominal and back muscle strength to get your spinal column to resemble this J shape,” Say Dr. Mummaneni.

So Gokhale may have somehow discovered a method to teach people to reinforce their core strength building routines without them ever even knowing it.

“Yes I certain believe think you’re correct,” say Mummaneni. “You are absolutely not going to go from the S shaped to the J shaped spinal column without presenting solid muscular strength in your core, and I believe that is the very key here.”

So traditional peoples around the globe do not have some sort of cure-all for preventing or relieving back pain. They just have strong abdominal muscles. Likewise, their lifestyle forces them keep them strong even as they grow older.

Esther’s Five Techniques For Improved Posture And Reduced Back Pain

Try these exercises while you are sitting at the dinner table, working at your desk, or walking around (or watch the videos from the Yoga Burn system).

  1. Shoulder roll: Americans tend to hunch forward letting their shoulders droop where our arms are in front of us. This is not how indigenous populations carry their arms, says Esther. To remedy this, slowly pull the shoulders up, push them back, and then let them drop like a shoulder roll. You should feel a bit of a stretch in your collar bones. Now your arms should hang by your side with your thumbs pointing outward. “This is the way all your ancestors parked their shoulders,” Esther says. “This is the natural architecture for our species.”
  2. Lengthen the spine: Adding more length to our spines is quite simple, Esther says. Careful not to arch your back, take deep breaths in, and feel your self growing tall. Keep this height as you exhale. Breathe in and keep repeating this to grow even taller and keep that new height as you exhale. “It takes some effort, but it really strengthens your abdominal muscles,” Esther says. An inversion table is another way to stretch out your spine.

  1. In several indigenous cultures they squeeze their gluteus medius muscles every single time they take a step. That is one reason why they have such prominent buttock muscles that help to support their lower backs. Esther claims you can start developing the same type of butt by contracting the buttocks with every step you take. “The gluteus medius is the one you’re after here. It’s the one high up on your bum,” Esther says. “It is the muscle that keeps you perky, at any age.”
  2. Don’t put your chin up: Instead, add length to your neck by taking a lightweight object, like a bean bag or folded washcloth, and balance it on the top of your crown. Try to push your head against the object. “This will stretch the rear of your neck and allow your chin to angle down in a relaxed manner and not in an exaggerated way” Esther says.
  3. Do not sit up straight: “That’s just arching your back and getting you into all sorts of trouble,” Gokhale says. Instead do a shoulder roll to open up the chest and take a deep breath to stretch your spine.

 

For whatever reason, one of the most often heard excuses regarding people not giving yoga a shot is: “I can’t even touch my toes.” Well… Guess what? Do you think we could touch our toes when we first started yoga??

Being flexible is something that is more in the mind than the body. If you just let go of the thought of reaching for the perfect pose, the barriers that you have created, and tension in your mind, you might just surprise yourself. Relax your mind in order to let your body take over.

While you’re working on this, give these changes to a few poses a try. Do each of these three times per week, taking about five to ten deep breaths. Let’s see how it goes. Remember to take deep breaths as this is a vital part of yoga in general. Every inhale should be used to create space, and during every exhale, let go of any tension and stress in your mind. Just release!

  1. Open Low Lunge Twist – Increase flexibility in hamstrings, spine, and hips. Start with a forward fold, flat feet, and wide stance. Bend your knees enough so your hands are able to touch the floor. Step your left foot back into a low lunge. Stand on the ball of your left foot. Keeping your left hand on the floor, turn your right foot outward just a bit. Reach your right arm to the ceiling, stretch, and breathe slowly and deeply. With every inhale, lengthen your spine. With every, exhale, twist just a bit more. Change sides and repeat this pose. Starting to feel good?
  2. Thread the Needle – Increase flexibility in the spine and shoulders. Bend forward and put your hands on the floor to get on all fours. Reach your left arm below your body and allow your left shoulder and temple to relax toward the floor. Keep your right hand on the floor, or you may walk it a tad to the left towards your head. Breathe slowly here and switch sides. Repeat.
  3. Extended Side Angle – Increase flexibility in the spine, waist, and hips. Start in the warrior II position with your left leg forward. Laterally bend in your left waist and relax your left forearm toward your right thigh. Reach your right arm up toward the ceiling and then to the front of your yoga mat over your head. Drop your right shoulder away from your ear and open your chest up towards the ceiling. Breathe slowly here and switch sides. Repeat.
  4. Single-Leg Forward Bend with Blocks – Increases flexibility in your hamstrings. Start in the down dog pose with your hands on blocks that are turned to medium height. Round your right knee to your nose and step your right foot between your hands to get into a low lunge. Raise your hips upward and begin to stretch both of your legs (they don’t have to be fully straight). Now take your blocks to the tallest height if that provides more space. Keep your hands on the blocks on either side of your right leg. Turn your left heel down so your left foot is at a 45-degree angle. Square off your hips and remember to breathe here. Repeat the same process with your left foot being forward.
  5. Modified Squat – Increases flexibility in Achilles’ tendon and hips. Take a yoga mat and roll it up as tight as possible. Place your heels on this mat so that your feet are out as wide as the mat. Angle toes outward while getting into a standing forward fold. Bend your knees and relax your hips toward the floor. Hover above at whichever height feels right to you. Keep your knees in line with your ankles. Take your elbows inside of your thighs, while gently pushing them out. Bring your hands together into prayer pose at the center of your chest. Keep your spine stretched. Breathe slowly here.
  6. Hip-Opening Crow Variation – Good hip-opener for the stronger set. Start in the modified squat we just learned. Plant your palms apart about shoulder-width on your yoga mat while lining up your wrist creases with the front of your mat. Press into your fingertips and look slightly forward. Take your inner thighs to your outer upper arms and gently use your thighs to squeeze your arms toward each other. Bend your elbows gently while keeping them in line with your shoulders, careful not to wing them out. Then one foot at a time, lift your foot off of the floor, and reach your heels towards your butt. Keep your gaze just slightly forward and begin to stretch your arms. Don’t forget to breathe! Want to step it up?
  7. Seated Forward Bend with Blocks and Strap – Increase flexibility in back and legs. Have a seat on a blanket or block with your legs stretched and together out in front of you. Grab a strap and loop it around your feet. Keep your knees bent slightly. Utilize every inhale to stretch through your spine and every exhale to relax a bit more forward. Be sure to keep stretching your belly while careful not to round your spine. Once you begin to feel like you are at your desired pose, relax your neck, and breathe slowly.

Every one of us ladies has the powers of Athena and Lakshmi hidden inside all of our beautifully strong and feminine parts. However, the majority of us are fast to forget it as we journey through our daily lives. We worry about getting groceries, the kids and their after school activities, going to our jobs and somehow still finding the time to care for others.

Once we finally have the free time to visit to our beloved mats, much can take place in those short but rewarding moments of practice and solitude. Yoga is so much more than just:

  • Sun Salutations
  • Crescents
  • Rocking Boats
  • Downward-Facing Dogs

It happens to be quite a profound yet subtle practice that changes our entire point of view on the world.

As a matter of fact, in Sanskrit, the word yoga actually happens to mean ‘to yoke’. It suggests joining the small individual self with one divine Self. The premise here is each and every one of us already happens to be divine in our own way, having forgotten it by our individuality and identification with our physical body.

More and more attached we have become to our daily lives. With our preconception of our “do’s” and “don’t”, it has become quite easy to forget we are really all divine beings more competent and very capable of just about anything of which we dream.

For the majority, it happens only in those rare and fleeting moments when we truly take note of our breathing or perhaps move into a certain pose we thought we weren’t ready for that we actually catch a glimpse of the goddess that dwells within. And yes, she dwells within all of us.

As time progresses, these infrequent glimpses become more frequent, and you too shall bear witness to Her. Further yet, your continual practice and progression of yoga will mold you into even more of a goddess than you ever dreamed.

Let’s Review Five Ways in Which Yoga Turns You Into Your True Goddess

The Healing Power Of Yoga

1. YOGA INSTILLS AND NURTURES CONFIDENCE.

All of us began in the same place – standing on an ordinary yoga mat, wearing brand new black yoga pants with an old shirt… And we were wondering… why are we posing like a dog… why are we the only ones out of the whole class puzzled when the instructor stopped speaking English?

This happens to be where the journey generally starts. Just a few short years in and suddenly we discover ourselves putting on our brightly colored yoga pants and anxiously awaiting Adho Mukha Svanasana hoping the instructor puts a headstand into the routine.

All that practice we have done on our mats has allowed us to tap into the hidden piece of ourselves that was locked away after we graduated high school. We uncover that little girl which used to enjoy cartwheels in the backyard before she got older and thought they were a silly waste of time.

Yoga practice allows that playful part of us we all loved (before we worried about what other people thought about us) to resurface. What is appropriate and what is not? Perhaps we do not have four arms like the goddess Lakshmi, yet we still know we are able to take on the whole world. At least this time we’re a bit more prepared to give it a shot.

2. YOGA MAKES YOU EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL.

Every yoga practice we attend, whether they revolve around poses (asana), breath and meditation (pranayama), gets us closes to Her and teaches us something about ourselves. The yoga practice happens to be a medium that funnels us towards self-actualization. This true “self-actualization” is perhaps the utmost gorgeous “thing” you can have cascading down your body.

During the time we are in yoga practice, we are able to hack into our feminine auras, even our masculine auras, and… our divine light… our inner goddess. We begin to become more harmonious and listen to our entire being more completely and are thankful for the fact that there exists beauty in even our most prominent of idiosyncrasies and flaws. We begin to see who, what, and how we are and why for a reason. We start to comprehend the fact that to exist and act any differently would absolutely impede us from being, loyal to, and discovering our most truly beautiful self.

3. IT WILL PREPARE YOU TO FORGET SOCIETY’S LABELS.

Society has bestowed upon us an abundance of labels. We lug around the heaviness of these words and preconceptions each and every day. Just imagine the numbe of these labels which have been instilled upon you:

  • Mother
  • Sister
  • Daughter
  • Wife
  • Stoic
  • Playful
  • Skinny
  • Selfish
  • Weak
  • Caring
  • Strong
  • Fat
  • Sexy
  • Bitchy
  • Tired
  • Confident
  • Shy
  • Cute
  • Overactive
  • On and on..!

Upon the chance we finally step on our yoga mats, we are able to let ourselves ultimately leave those labels behind… even if just for a moment. We allot a time frame of tranquility even if just for 30, 60, or 90 minutes. Then we hack into the very piece of ourselves which is of purity and eternity. The very essence that is forever beautiful, confident, and competent… no matter influences and distractions that swarm us.

4. IT PROVIDES THAT UNMISTAKABLE AURA AND RADIANCE (JUST LOOK AT ZOE!).

Absolutely… that glow is certainly realized as it cascades from your chin during your 15th Chaturanga Dandasana. However, this isn’t exactly the glow I am referring to. I’m referring to that “wow” element. The energy that precedes you… no introduces you as Her… as you walk into any room. It is that inexplicable factor that leads to people to turn their heads… to smile… to listen more carefully and be more attentive to what you have to say.

If you have ever been to a satisfying yoga class or have been truly inspired by a great speaker… you have to know exactly what I mean. It’s the exact moment where you are balanced perfectly… tranquil… ready for absolutely anything the sky can drop in your lap. You are confident… and beauty… eternal. During this very moment… you are immovable… rock solid… and the divinity within… beams forth a radiance that is dazzling and intoxicating.

5. IT BRINGS HAPPINESS TO YOU AND ALL WHO SURROUND YOU.

Singing. It’s happened to just about all of us. Perhaps you are washing dishes, walking down the sidewalk, or cooking… then you realize you are humming. Was it perhaps one of the Sanskrit songs from yoga practice where you weren’t able to quite comprehend the lyrics, but the melody was euphoric?

Many times we will presume the instructor chose the song simply because it had a great melody and tempo, yet a great instructor will do more than just that. He or she will select melodies containing mantras with meaning that instill the intention of the whole class. Strength, playfulness, or healing are the three main elements behind these melodic transformations you will feel.

These specific mantras and songs are yet even more intoxicating when merged with an asana practice because they carry vibrations throughout the room. These vibrations can transform you on a cellular level. As these songs and melodies cascade down your spirit and become intertwined with your true self (in order to get you to hum them while walking down the street), you’ve just unexpectedly discovered a new inspiration.

Simply by taking that specific sound and mantra with you, you have already instilled more bliss and joy in the body.

We all can see that bliss and joy are the very first steps to becoming a goddess. Every goddess must be joyful as they are divine and of a spirit freed. Each one finds immeasurable moments of bliss and joy. So Durga perhaps finds her happiness in a different way than Aphrodite. Yet… they both live fully… embracing the parts of themselves which are the strongest and inspire the most awe.

Girlfriends, let me introduce you to my friend and spiritual mentor… Zoe Bray-Cotton…

There are 3 root causes why you may still have that bulging belly.

Unfortunately, it’s also the exact same root causes which can lead directly to rebound weight gain.

You see, for many women, insidious little “fat-storing” toxins reside in your body’s makeup. They keep your hormones clinging to fat, making your metabolism work about as well as racing a car with no engine…

You may notice this when you go to eat normally… you eat “normal” or cheat a little bit… wake up the next day and all the weight seems to have piled right back on.

So what are the 3 root causes?

1) Stress

This is both emotional and physical.

Cortisol wreaks havoc on your fat-burning metabolism. And in this modern age, often times the “stress deck” is stacked against us.

You see, in the last 10,000 years or so, our bodies have not changed much in how we handle stress. Now, certain activities provide us with what we can call “Beneficial Stress”. This would include your Yoga Burn practice, and adding in certain nutrients to your diet. (I’ll get to the nutrients in a minute.)

Yet, oftentimes — and actually due to a LACK of certain nutrients– our bodies are attacked daily by a steady drip of “Negative Stress”.

This comes from common daily activities like sitting in traffic, your teen acting up, and even the foods you have eaten.

Regarding foods…

This ties us in to root cause…

2) Toxins

Chemicals contained in certain processed foods, your body has a difficult time figuring out. As result, it leads to chronic inflammation. Priming your body to pack on — and retain — ugly belly fat.

Now, food can potentially be a great source to fuel youthful vitality. Turning back the clock on your years. And, potentially scorching fat off your body.

Even better, particular superfoods — about 11 total — can immediately give you the vitality and a white-hot-metabolism, all while flushing out those fat piling on toxins.

3) Balancing Your Hormones

Ok, this root cause ties in to the previous two points.  By now, you realize toxins and stress make it nearly impossible for you to KEEP belly fat off.

Yet, as you recall, certain foods will balance your hormones, flush out nasty toxins, and eliminate stress. Even eliminate stress emotionally.

Best of all, you can make and consume these potent and powerful superfoods in under 30 seconds.

If you’ve been following our blog, you know that you can burn fat and get rid of cellulite with yoga, but what about the dietary aspect of eliminating cellulite? The Cellulite Destroyer System by Mandy Fullerton reveals just this (as you can see from the video above).

This 139-page ebook goes in-depth into a variety of techniques to destroy your cellulite. However, the main focus of this book in on diet and specific oral remedies. Before we can discuss the specified remedies for cellulite in this PDF, we need to first talk about what cellulite is exactly so you can better understand how to get rid of it in your own body.

What Is Cellulite?

Cellulite is actually not a medical condition unlike how the name makes it sound. It is generally self-diagnosable and self-treatable as it is merely natural pockets of fat directly beneath the skin. This dimpled, lumpy appearance of the skin is due to these pockets of fat protruding caused by connective tissue being stretched by the excess fat underneath the skin. Take a look at the image below to see the difference between healthy-looking skin and cellulite formation. You can see that, with cellulite, the enlarged fat cells beneath the skin push on the dermis causing the anchor points to become depressed below the surface of the skin. This creates that “orange peel” look.

Although cellulite is not damaging to your health, most people prefer to get rid of it because of the way it looks. It is a natural part of aging and weight gain, especially in women, however unnatural it may look. The good news, though, is that you can get rid of it through natural means and you don’t need to have that lumpy, dimpled appearance anywhere on your body!

What’s Inside Cellulite Destroyer?

If you didn’t have time to watch the video above or just couldn’t because you were at work or something, let’s go ahead and review what’s inside the Cellulite Destroyer System. This 139-page PDF ebook is almost an all-encompassing solution to destroying your cellulite. I say ‘almost’ because although it does briefly touch on some physical exercise techniques, it doesn’t go too much into detail. Stretching and toning your muscles that lie beneath the skin of the areas affected by cellulite is paramount to completely destroying your cellulite forever.

That is why we recommend you either pair it with a customized yoga weight loss program, or strictly go for yoga alone. Yes, of course, diet is very important to weight loss and the specified herbal remedies and oils do wonders, but… it is very important to exercise and stretch those muscles in the specific trouble zones. It doesn’t require much exercise at all and they’re quite simple.

Anyways, back to what’s inside the Cellulite Destroyer System:

As we mentioned in the video, the book first explains what cellulite is and how it works. What I love about the PDF is that it then directly jumps into remedies! It doesn’t continue to bore you with fluff or scientific BS. It just jumps straight to what you can do to fix the issue.

Some Introductory Remedies

What’s funny, though, is that one of the first remedies is to drink more water. I mean they say you should add some lemon… I get it. It is important to drink more water to promote weight loss and healthy bodily function, although it is sort of obvious. With that being said, I guess it was important for Mandy to go ahead and get it out of the way for people who may not necessarily have thought about it. Maybe they had thought about it but they weren’t really that motivated to start drinking water. It’s all about the motivation to achieve your physical goals and then having the knowledge to do it efficiently and effectively.

Next, it talks about the various kinds of cellulite brushes you can purchases for around $7 online or from your local drug store. They are designed to work by massaging the skin and stretching the connective tissues that are too tight. The connective tissues are what are pulling your skin down at certain points creating that shadowy recessed look that we refer to as cellulite.

This is a remedy that will help speed up the process of eliminating cellulite, but it is not going to be a cure-all on its own. You will want to follow all the other remedies in this book to help you get rid of your cellulite as quickly as possible.

The brush also helps to promote healthy blood circulation which leads to improved nutrient delivery and the dissolving of subcutaneous fat. Subcutaneous fat is the fat that is directly beneath your skin, and when in excess, is responsible for cellulite.

Next, the ebook discusses some very specific massaging techniques that can be used. Again, this is not going to get rid of your cellulite alone, but in combination with the dietary recommendations and exercises, it will certainly help speed up the process.

Certain Things To Avoid

Following the specific massage techniques, it gets into some of the things most people don’t really want to hear. It talks about all of the things that you want to avoid when eating or drinking. Granted, a lot of us like to drink alcohol, sodas, coffee and eat cheap junk food, but these things all lead to unhealthy weight gain and toxins being stored in our bodies. Among other reasons for our bodies storing fat, we also store visceral fat to protect our organs from these toxins. These toxins come from everyday un-organic products that we consume (and we’re not just talking about food). Toxins come from all kinds of consumer products, including shampoos, makeup, prescription drugs, air pollution, water contaminants, etc. The list goes on. Now, obviously we cannot avoid all of these things all the time, but it is all about moderation and doing your best to avoid certain harmful things when at all possible.

Instead of eating things like white bread, start eating whole grain. Instead of soda, alcohol, or coffee, drink more water. If you cannot cut these things out completely, just reduce them as much as you can.

Detoxing Remedies

Here is where it starts to get into the good stuff. It shows you some of the specific herbs, spices, oils, and extracts you can use to your advantage to start detoxifying your liver and improving your body’s metabolism and fat disposal process.

I can’t share all of the remedies here, but they include things like:

  • Milk thistle
  • Licorice extract
  • Chamomile
  • Cinnamon

And a whole host of others. It then discusses several different oils you can use as well. These oils are highly concentrated extracts obtained from flowers, leaves, roots, berries, stems, gums, and plant resins. The extracted oils contain, vitamins, natural hormones, antiseptics, and antibiotics and are used externally as inhalants with a few drops in the tub when soaking.

This is important because these oils have tons of benefits as it contains antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It is also an astringent, diuretic, homeostatic, cytophylactic, and natural deodorant. The key property is cytophylactic; which means it boosts the recycling of dead cells and the regeneration of new ones. It contains diuretic (blood-thinning) abilities that aid blood flow and circulation. It increases blood circulation that reduces cellulite deposits from forming. There are 10 of these oils that are mentioned and exactly how each benefits you in the removal of cellulite.

Fad Diets And Things That Just Don’t Work

Continuing on throughout the PDF, it then gets into some of the famous Hollywood fad diets. These so-called detox diets are usually big hype and only do more harm then good. The book lists out several of these highly popular fad diets then discusses the science of why they just don’t work.

Some of these include the:

  • Grapefruit diet
  • Cabbage soup diet
  • 3-hour diet
  • Hollywood diet
  • Beverly Hills diet
  • And others

Having put common detox fads to bed, the ebook then gets into the proper way to detox. It discusses the 72-hour detox plan to reset your fat-burning cycle.

Food And Recipes

The PDF then continues to get into all of the healthy foods to eat that will help you burn fat. It actually tells you to eat more and not less in order to burn fat. This is to train your metabolism to burn more fat faster and to provide you with consistent nutrition for better overall health.

The recipes included in the PDF ebook show exactly what to eat and when. Now, remember, you have plenty of options and wiggle room, but it’ll show you the types of meals you can eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Timing is very important when it comes to eating in order to stimulate your metabolism in the proper manner to maximize the fat-burning effect.

Exercises

In the book, it briefly covers some yoga poses you can do for fat loss, however, it does not go into much detail. This is a shame because there are very specific yoga poses and routines that are absolutely very powerful for both fat loss and getting rid of cellulite fast. Again, this is because of how certain yoga poses can help you quickly stretch and tone the muscles that are directly beneath the skin of the effected problem areas (areas where you are seeing cellulite).That is why, again, we cannot stress enough how powerful the Yoga Burn course is.

We recommend that you get both the Cellulite Destroyer System and the Yoga Burn program, but if you can only afford one, Yoga Burn is the way to go. The easy-to-follow videos in that course will help you get a tone and fit looking body fast and completely destroy your cellulite at the same time. When it comes to getting rid of cellulite, exercise is most important. When it comes to losing weight, diet plays a much bigger role.

You will see a dialog box pop up that looks like this:

Click “Stay”, and you will be taken to a screen that looks like this:

Click “Yes! Add To My Order” and you will be taken to the ClickBank checkout screen where you will see that the order total is now only $19.00! Pretty cool, right?

What else is great about ordering from ClickBank is that you have an iron-clad 60-day refund policy. This means that you get to test drive the ebook for 60 days, and if you aren’t 100% satisfied with it, you will get a full refund from ClickBank. You’ll get all of your $19 back, and you don’t even have to contact the people from Cellulite Destroyer!
