Phytotherapy can be defined as the use of herbs and plants to counteract different kinds of pathologies. Cellulites is a problem, which not isn’t only a esthetic annoyance but can provoke pain as well, that can be treated successfully using this approach.

These natural medications are administered orally. They’re active ingredients act directly upon the micro-circulatory alterations and accumulation of liquid in fat tissue, ensuring the successful drainage of cellular waste. Also, these pills help with the elimination of the secondary effects of cellulite, such as cramps, liquid retention, numbness in the legs and pain.

Anti-cellulite pills are manufactured with natural active ingredients. The treatment they provide increases blood circulation in the arteries, helps to repair micro-arteries and increases the cavities in blood vessels. Additionally, these pills accelerate the speed of your metabolism so that accumulated fat is burned quicker after blood circulation in the affected areas has been restored to its normal levels.

These pills can be combined with other anti-cellulite treatments that HCR in Costa Rica offers, such as mesotherapy or hidrolipoclasia.

Adequate Candidates

Even though phytotherapy (anti-cellulite) pills are usually sold freely, it is not recommendable for people who suffer from hyperthyroidism, circulatory problems or allergies to the active ingredients of the capsule to take them. Pregnant or nursing women aren’t adequate candidates either. This is why it is recommended for you to have an evaluation appointment with a HCR specialist before you start taking the pills.

The Procedure

After you start taking the pills, you will have to wait at least 2 months to start seeing results; this treatment is long term but when it does take effect, you will notice a significant reduction in the problem areas as the retained fluids start are eliminated. Patience is required when it comes to anti-cellulite pills and you must always keep in mind that results are not immediate.

Health Issues

Phytotherapy doesn’t have any secondary complications and studies have failed to show that it was any damaging effects on the patients taking the pills. Therefore, it is safe to say that anyone can undertake this treatment.

However, it must be remembered that anti-cellulite creams are not meant for people who suffer from prominent cases of localized cellulite. This treatment is meant for people whose cellulite is in its earliest stages.

Donald Bryant

Donald Bryant didn’t start out wanting to write. He stumbled upon it as a career after he was asked to contribute to his high school magazine by way of a short bio. At the time, Don was a passably good athlete and for reasons known only to the mag’s editors, they thought he’d make an interesting topic. As it turns out, they were right. Or at least Don was able to write his bio in such a way that it made him sound a lot more interesting than he actually was. Combine a love of athletics with an interest in health and a talent for the written word and just like that, Don’s future path in life was mapped out.
