“Why is it so hard for women to get rid of cellulite?” Dr. Oz asks special guest Heidi Waldorf, MD and dermatologist, during a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show that addresses one of the biggest complaints faced by many women—cellulite.

“Cellulite is a complex problem with multiple causes,” says Dr. Waldorf. “Fat, hormones, genetics, circulation, inflammation—so, there’s no one perfect answer. You have to hit it with a multi-pronged approach to even improve appearance.”

“So what’s your magic formula?’ asks Dr. Oz.

“My cellulite trifecta is: a retinoid, caffeine and antioxidants. If you combine all three, then you are attacking different aspects of the causes of cellulite and you should be able to improve the appearance, even temporarily,” says Dr. Waldorf.

In a demonstration model of cellulite, Dr. Oz explains to viewers that the bumpy, cottage-cheesy appearance of cellulite is partly due to inflammation that is occurring among the skin and fat cells that is causing the cells to rise up and give a bumpy appearance to the body. Using Dr. Waldorf’s suggested trifecta treatment, the antioxidant component targets the inflammation and helps reduce the uneven cell layers.

The caffeine component, Dr. Oz explains, also works directly on cellulite by passing through the skin layers and going to the fat cells where it acts to decrease the size of the fat cells. And finally, the retinoid component actually causes the underlying skin layers to tighten and thereby provides a smoother appearing surface to the top layer of the skin.

Dr. Waldorf states that there is no permanent cure for cellulite, but if you have an event coming up and the cellulite will be visible, that you can find creams in your bathroom or medicine cabinet that will often contain the three anti-cellulite components she says that will improve your appearance temporarily.

“The likelihood is that you are going to find something you already have that has antioxidants in it, caffeine or retinoids,” says Dr. Waldorf.

She states that many lotions for the face and body contain antioxidants in them. That caffeine is typically found in eye de-puffing agents, and that retinoids are often present in your teen’s acne medication and in anti-aging creams.

“So, put them all on together—don’t spend a lot on it,” says Dr. Waldorf.

Massaging expensive creams onto the skin is not going to get rid of adipose tissue. We need to formulate an understanding what cellulite is, without going into commercial creams. Dr Linda Frasetto of the University of California studied the eating habits of 1000 people and found that, to save already overloaded kidneys and liver, test subjects’ body's accumulated acid wastes in the body rather than pass more toxin through these organs. These wastes are stored as adipose tissue or fat and, because most of us sit down a lot guess where these fats are stored? You are right; you are indeed sitting on it She found that excess acid waste, combined with reduced alkaline food intake has so overloaded the body’s detoxification systems, that they are threatened with failure. The body has made the choice to store acid in our joints, fats and cells at a much increased rate. It is a survival choice made through necessity but not without cost. As toxicity increases in the body on a cellular level the immune system might attack and attempt to destroy its own tissue. The immune system simply does not recognize the body organs because of the toxic chemicals and started to reject them. And when enough toxins are distributed through the body organs a strong immune system will destroy those organs, leading to death. Acid destroys our cells and eats its way into our joints, causing arthritis and other diseases. Dairy, potatoes , meats, poultry ,and sugar are all acid forming foods, vegetables and beans and lentils and margarines are alkaline forming foods. Alkaline neutralizes acid. End of problem without medication.
