Fluid retention is not the cause of cellulite, but it does certainly impact on it. Many things contribute to the cause of Cellulite, from genetics to lack of exercise to smoking. Fluid retention is one of those factors?

First let’s look at what fluid retention is and how it affects the body.


What is fluid retention?


Fluid retention, also known as water retention or oedema, occurs when excess fluids build up inside the body. It mainly happens in the circulatory system or within tissues and cavities. It causes swelling in the hands, feet, ankles and legs. Often women experience water retention during pregnancy. People who are physically inactive, bedridden or sitting for long periods of time have a higher chance of having water retention. It can be an ongoing problem or be more noticeable after traveling or during hot weather.


Reducing fluid retention


There are many ways to help reduce fluid build up, these are;

– Eating less salt in your diet.

– Increasing your magnesium / vitamin B6 intake

– Eating more potassium rich foods

– Avoiding refined carbohydrates

People may try one or more of these lifestyle changes until they see the results they want. Yet this may take time and may not reduce the fluid fully.


How does fluid retention contribute to cellulite?


Excess fluid builds up in the tissue. This has an effect on the blood and lymph circulation making it harder to burn fat. The build-up of bodily waste, also known as toxins, attach to the large fat cells and contribute to the appearance of cellulite. Reducing water retention is a vital step to preventing the formation of cellulite.


How can Endospheres Therapy help to reduce fluid retention?


The Endospheres treatment helps to activate the lymphatic system and restore balance. It assists in the removal of toxins and brings nutrients essential to cellular growth to the tissue. It increases circulation in both the blood system and the lymphatic system. As the body begins to function better the appearance of cellulite improves. In addition to this the shape of the body changes as the retained fluid releases. Many people say that the treatment has a similar effect to a good workout at the gym leaving them feeling lighter and refreshed.
