Guest post by the uber-talentedMarta Tuchowska of www.HolisticWellnessProject.com.
I know that the introduction of this article may come as a bit of a surprise to some of you. However, before we dive into the incredible world of holistic remedies, including aromatherapy, herbs and alkaline foods, I believe it’s really important to start with your mindset.
Because with the right mindset, you will feel more motivated to stick to the super healthy anti-cellulite rituals we are about to discuss and keep on track.
You will also approach the healthy way of life from a point of confidence, not doubt or frustration. First of all, you need to understand that it’s not just about cellulite. Cellulite is merely a symptom of some imbalances that must be corrected through a balanced lifestyle. Wholesome nutrition with plenty of alkalizing and detoxifying foods, physical activity and even positive thinking as well as natural, remedies are a great toolkit for all holistic warriors (yes, from now on, you are a holistic warrior).
So, focus on a bigger picture because you will also reap other health and wellness benefits, like fat burning, more energy and (if desired) weight loss.
Let’s jump into it!
Be honest with yourself and analyze your lifestyle.
No worries, I am not here to judge. As a busy, 21st-century person, I have also been guilty of a sedentary lifestyle and indulging in processed foods. My old mindset was: it has to be all or nothing. And so I would rotate from crazy, restrictive fads diets (I thought I was healthy!) to bingeing on processed foods. I didn’t succeed until I decided to be good to myself, move forward and do the best I can while also giving myself some space to fail. Nobody is perfect. It’s not about perfection but about progress, right? We need to understand that it’s always those small things that make big results over the long term.
Do not use excuses like “I don’t have time” or “I am not this kind of a super healthy person” because they will not help you with your goals. Try to write down all the unhealthy culprits, for example: take-away food, too much time in front of the TV or too many sweets. Think of how these could be replaced by other, more empowering activities that are also enjoyable. For example, you could make a healthier version of your favorite pizza or take-away, you could have a naturally sweet fruit smoothie (and sneak in some spinach) instead of candy and finally, you could have a nice walk with a friend (or on your own, maybe listening to music or motivational audiobooks) instead of “couching.” Also, add new habits that you wish to create. This could be as simple as adding more vegetables into your diet, taking up yoga or meditation in order to de-stress and avoid temptations of emotional eating, starting your day with a simple home workout, etc. Then, ask yourself every day: “Okay, what can I improve today?” Focus on only one thing, and don’t try to do it all at once. This brings us to the next topic.
Focus on adding, not eliminating.
Trust me, it will be easier and your emotional wellness will not leave you. Let me give you an example. We know that processed foods and fast food is bad for us. But for some people, it can be a really tough journey to try to give it all up at once. I prefer to take a holistic approach and go to the root of the problem. I believe that we crave certain unhealthy foods simply because our body does not feel nourished enough. So, when you feel like snacking again, chances are likely that your body is telling you “Feed me, feed me! I am hungry!” The problem is that it’s asking for real, nutrient-dense foods, not crappy foods. As long as you focus on adding first, you will find it easier to eliminate unhealthy foods and eating habits. Besides, it’s easier and less stressful. You can start adding more green salads, veggies and smoothies. You can learn new recipes and take advantage of some super foods, like chia seeds, barley grass, quinoa, etc. You can start drinking more fresh fruit-infused water that will naturally replace sodas and colas.
Create a holistic spa at home with aromatherapy.
I guess this will be your favorite one! Essential oils will take care of you not only from the outside (helping you eliminate cellulite and improve your skin condition) but also from the inside. You will feel much more relaxed. Simply choose one (or more) of the following essential oils: fennel, grapefruit, lemon or mint and mix a few drops of your chosen essential oil (or oils if you are using a blend) with a tablespoon of coconut oil. Massage cellulite-effected areas twice a day, preferably after sponge peeling. Even though essential oils are safe to use and natural, remember to get acquainted with possible precautions, always investigate the brand and if pregnant or lactating, talk to your doctor first. Mint essential oil may interact with some natural homeopathic treatments, and citric essential oils (for example, lemon, orange and grapefruit) are phototoxic, meaning that after applying them topically, you need to avoid direct sun exposure. Never apply essential oils on your skin undiluted. Be sure to dilute in coconut oil or other cold-pressed oils (almond, avocado, olive, castor, etc.).
Add more alkaline foods to your diet.
Nope, I am not saying you should live on green, alkaline foods alone, but adding more fresh, alkalizing foods to your diet (leafy greens, tomatoes, avocados, lemons, fennel, limes and grapefruits) are fantastic for fat burning. Our body stores fat to protect itself from acidity. The pH of our bodily fluids, including blood should, be slightly alkaline (7.35). By eating more alkaline-forming foods, we help our body detoxify and work better for us. Finally, a bold statement from Doctor Young, author of The pH Miracle: “There is only one disease. Constant acidification of the body.” If you are new to the alkaline diet concept, no worries. I have a free eBook on the alkaline diet (plus charts and recipes) that you can grab at:
The Power of Juicing
Juicing is a great way to help you burn fat, gain more energy and eliminate cellulite. Remember not to juice fruit rich in sugar, though. Check out my article for more information and recipes:
Focus on the inside
Finally, take care of yourself from the inside out. Use herbs to help you on your journey. The herbs I have personally used include:
Fucus vesiculosus, Oxiacanta Crataegus and Butula alba.
I am also a big fan of horsetail and fennel tea.
Of course, everyone is different, so I urge you to contact Tim, the owner of this amazing website, for more detailed information and high-quality herbs. I am not a certified herbalist, so I am not able to prescribe any detailed treatments. Personally, I have benefited a lot from a consultation with Tim.
Herbs are much cheaper and more effective than splurging on exotic food supplements that eventually don’t work or getting stuck with tons of anti-cellulite lotions in your bathroom.
Move your body
To make it more effective and doable set a simple goal of 15-minute workouts per day. You can even start with 5 minutes per day. Squats are my favorite, and I am committed to doing a few series throughout the day. It’s all about creating habits – plus; it’s free. My favorite anti-cellulite workout is simple. I do a quick warm-up on an elliptical machine (can also be spinning or a short run). Then, I stretch, do squats and a few core strengthening Pilates-inspired exercises. Yoga poses, like warrior, bridge, supported shoulder stand or candle, can also help. Remember that cellulite is very often connected to poor circulation and water retention; this is why we need to move our legs and take care of them.
To sum up, there are many factors that lead to the appearance of cellulite:
- Eating nutritionally poor food
- Eating unhealthy food
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Fad dieting
- A high amount of body fat
- Hormone imbalances
- Thickness of skin
- Poor circulation
The above-mentioned five strategies address all of them in a holistic way. So what are you waiting for?

There are many other ways to be cured than by using drugs. Other ways that actually fix the problem; instead of just covering it up. Which is what drugs do to you body, when a drug gets inside of you it bounces around to different areas because nothing knows what to do with it. So they pass the problem on to soothing else and hope they can do something with it. Your body was not created to handle drugs; it just doesn’t know what to do with them. So why give your body something it doesn’t know or like?
So I would suggest that before you use drugs to fix your health problem try one or two of the alternative ways to get your health and your immune system back on the right track. Two of the better alternatives are essential oils and exercise. Exercise is the most popular alternative healing method.
However, which workout is the best for you? This is where I turn to Workout Training Review. This website helps teach people which workouts are the best for their goals. They mainly focus on the three major video workouts to include Focus T25, P90X and Insanity. But regardless, let’s talk about Focus T25 since it is the best all round for helping us to build strong core strength and thus improve our health.
And the best workout program to do is Focus T25.
Focus T25 is a 90-day workout plan that you do 5 days out of the week. This plan is not like any of the other programs because for each day you only workout for 25 minutes. Instead of the normal 1-hour to 1-1/2 that most of the other programs say you need to work out for.
Just think with Focus T25 only 25 minutes of your day is gone instead of a full 1-1/2 if you were to choose another workout program. This program is geared towards people with busy schedules that can’t afford to give up such a large time out of their day. So now more people are able to workout considering that 25 minutes doesn’t sound long or bad at all.
Now working out to a program that has set workouts you do each day can be a little difficult to remember. However that is why this program comes with a schedule. This is a paper schedule, so trust me it will get lost, but you can also find some really good Focus T25 workout schedules that are electronic. So you can take everywhere with you and it won’t get lost.
There are actually two steps that you need to follow if you plan to do the workout alternative. The first is to do the workout program exercises, simple enough. However the second step is you also need to follow the meal plan that comes with it. This meal plan is very important because lets just say I do the workout everyday and follow the schedule to a T.
However after the workout I go ahead and eat my sugared cereal that I always eat and for lunch I go out and get some greasy burgers with fries. That workout would just be worthless after all of that food. If I plan to eat like that, then why even try and workout. I would not be seeing any changes in my health or me.
So what you eat is extremely important in your health. The Focus T25 meal plan is not at all difficult to follow. The meals are also not ones that are filled with strange ingredients that you would have to search high and low for. Instead they are just basic meals that are perfect for the workouts you will be doing.
That is the best alternative health option out there, working out. In this article we covered what the best workout program is for the health alternatives. We also covered why Focus T25 is great for people in a hurry to get out the door. Then we talked about the schedule and why you should just skip the paper one that comes with the program and find it in an electronic form instead. The last and final thing that this article mentioned was the meal plan. How if you skipped it and continued to eat junk food and greasy food, that nice workout that you did in the morning would be wasted. You health will not get better if you stick to your own eating. However if you follow the meal plan things will change for the better. So that is it for the best alternative ways in which you can stay healthy or get your health back.
Hormones are the natural balance of a body. Chemicals naturally introduced into our body affects our mind, emotion, spirit and overall being. It can be a driving factor towards the way you carry your day and how your body acts.
Types of Hormones
I’m sure you’ve heard people talk about estrogen and testosterone right?
Well it turns out there are a LOT more than that and the subtle change in one can cause a dramatic change in your overall health. I learned this the hard way!
Back when I was trying to pull myself out of my weight problems and kick start my herbal endeavor, I kept getting stuck. I kept feeling off. Some days, I wouldn’t want to workout or hit the play button on my workout video. It felt like something was missing.
Well it turns out that you can re-balance your hormones the natural way!
I came across a book called “The Natural Path to Hormonal Wellness” and found a couple of great remedies. It turns out that you can re-balance using hrbs and it was totally in-line with what I was trying to accomplish.
This book cover:
- 15 Different herbal remedies
- Where the hormonal re-balancing herbs come from – something I am generally interested in…the source
- Their chemistry and why they work
- How to effectively use them
- And more
Another great source in my initial conquest to re-balance my hormones and get back on track with my weight loss was from Dr. Edward Group of GlobalHealingCenter.com. Particularly useful was his specific discussion on the 10 Best Herbs for Female Hormone Balance.
Now as many of you know, I am not a female. But in this case, there were a couple that really applied to me and truly worked to help get me back on path.
My personal favorite was the Shilajit herb. A tradition Chinese and Indian herb, this is concocted (seeped and mashed) to create a physical energy tonic – side affect, also increases sexual drive. Found in the Himalayas, this compound is chalk full of nutrients, antioxidants and even amino acids.
It single handedly kick-started my metabolism by jump-starting my ATP production – layman’s terms, it sent more energy to my cells to respond to my workout demand. I felt full of life and did it naturally.
Hormonal imbalance can be the catalyst that breaks your will and stops you from progress. I had all the right conditions in place to help me lose weight, but for the life of me couldn’t figure out why I couldn’t move forward. I was suffering.
Until I realized that it wasn’t a mental thing but a lack of the right hormones in my body, I was stuck. Hey football fans, want to know why NFL players can’t take hormonal inhibitors…yup, too much of a competitive advantage.
So, check out the two resources above and start getting your hormones to respond the right way. Start getting your life together both physically, emotionally and chemically. Because whether or not you believe it, those three things are all tied together and together, they “Herbs, hormones and balance” can be the driving mechanism to take you to the next level.
Pharmaceutical antibiotics are probably one of the most helpful medicines ever developed by mankind. However, this type of antibiotic being sold on pharmaceutical stores have certain harmful effects (mild to serious) to human health when taken inappropriately, that is why antibiotics are not given to any patients without doctor prescription.
Pharmaceutical antibiotics, just like any other standard medicines, are developed from natural compounds just like plants and herbs. Yes, some plants and herbs have natural anti bacterial properties that are very helpful in fighting bacterial growth and these natural antibiotics are very accessible in our kitchen and pantry.
Garlic is one of the super foods that has anti bacterial properties. The anti bacterial properties found in garlic called allicin is very much effective when consumed raw. Aside from anti-bacterial properties, garlic is also popular for having anti-viral, anti-oxidant, ant-fungal, anti-inflammation and anti-parasitic properties.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Coconut is probably the richest plant on earth. Aside from the numerous things and products that you can make from this wonderful tree, coconut is also the source of one of the purest and healthiest oils in the world which is the extra virgin coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil has anti-bacterial properties and anti-fungal properties. Plus a very good source of plenty of minerals that helps improve overall health.
Honey has this enzyme that releases hydrogen peroxide and this helps human body fight certain infections and will stop bacterial growth. It also has anti0xidant properties and anti-inflammation properties.
- Other plants and herbs that has anti-bacterial properties:
Although natural antibiotics are usually safe to consume, yet you still need to understand that there are some herbs/herbal products that would never be suitable for you especially if you are undergoing certain treatments or if you have taken certain medications, so we highly recommend that you seek advice from health professionals.

Headaches could be linked to hormones, higher blood volume and blood circulation, inadequate posture, insufficient water in the body, wrong diet, stress and anxiety, sinus stress, high blood pressure and some other health issues. For non-pregnant women, aspirin and ibuprofen could be the best solution to treat this problem but for those who are pregnant, these drugs are highly dangerous for the mother and to her unborn child.

An exceptionally great natural herb that is popular to several individuals is Ginseng. Ginseng came from Asian regions particularly from China and Japan. There are plenty of health supplements made from Ginseng that are commonly offered in different health stores and even in stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and many others. This particular natural herb will help enhance the stamina of the one taking it by concentrating on specific compounds in the human brain that energize increased metabolic rate and reduces food cravings.

Bitter orange is another herb that is helpful in increasing your metabolic rate by concentrating on the amino acids within your body. Other individuals even consider this herb as source of natural energy while other try to use this to help them aid their weight loss routine.

This will help you burn off high fat calories and will actually improve your vitality a lot more everyday.
It will take a good desire to want to increase your vitality, but it is always achievable. The herbal products and vitamin supplements will help you, but you have to put that energy to work to obtain the very best benefits!
We mostly love herbs. It’s healing power, the aroma and other things that has something to do with herbs is simply exceptional. Here are useful and powerful techniques with regards to drying out natural herbs and preserving them for a few months:
Drying herbs in oven method:
Put the herbal leaves or foliage on a biscuit sheet or stainless steel screen. You can do that by separating and spreading the herbal leaves equally on the biscuit sheet or stainless steel screen.
Put the herbal leaves in an oven pre-heated to 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Take a look at it on a regular basis and take out herbal leaves from the oven. Make sure that to take out the herbs from the metal sheet as well which will keep on being hot for some time and may burn off the herbal leaves even after taking out from oven.
Advantages and Disadvantages of drying out herbal plants in the oven:
Advantages: By speeding up the drying procedure, much more of the nutritional value and essential oils are locked in to the dried herbal plants.
Disadvantages: Ovens differ and a few are pretty sloping in their heat distribution. A few of the natural herbs can be burned up, while others are still too damp.
How dry herbs differ to freezing herbs?
A few individuals choose to freezing herb garden plants, simply because they really feel they retain their fresh herb flavor as opposed to the drying of natural herbs. Some herbal plants respond truly effectively to drying out but are less effective when frozen. Let’s say for instance, chives often are sagging when frozen. The opposite is also true for other herbal plants.
Here are a couple of simple suggestions for freezing herbals plants:
Mince or cut the herbal plant into one fourth inches pieces.
Line a biscuit sheet or stainless steel sheet with wax or parchment paper
Distribute the herbal leaves on the stainless steel sheet
Put the sheet with the herbs into the freezer
When herbal plant or leaves are frozen, move them to an resistant zip-lock pouch
Put back to freezer right up until required
This method is actually a simple technique of freezing natural herbs and it is powerful.
Herbs in Ice Cubes:
Carefully mince the herbal leaves.
Put a measured volume, (listed below) washed herbal leaves in an ice-cube container
Fill up ice cube plastic containers with drinking water and freeze out
Make sure to mark the ice cube trays so you can determine your herbs afterwards
By conserving fresh herbals in ice cubes, you’ll get the following benefits:
Herbs from your home herbal garden are quickly and efficiently saved for later use. The next advantage is that every single ice cube has a pre-measured volume of fresh herbals. Each and every herb-filled ice cube becomes an extremely handy that you just drop into your sauces, soups or other refreshing herbal dishes. Try setting a tablespoon of healthy lightly minced herbs in every single ice cube. This is a typical measuring for your recipes.
Arnica is a healthy plant that grows up nicely in cool and healthy specific areas. The flower of arnica is used to make medicine.
