This is a crazy world we live in with a global pandemic, gyms closed, depression mounting, nutrition lacking and coping mechanisms trying to save today... and tomorrow .... and then next... and so on.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t pull out the ole’ tool box, dig deep and ensure we minimize how the exterior environment affects us in all capacities.
Let’s talk about cellular toxicity: the one thing that dictates overall health and wellness, or risk for long term illness and disease.
Each cell in the body — brain cell, skill cell, lymphatic cell, etc. — is comparable to a balloon.
Quick science lesson: the balloon is a phospholipid membrane. This is a permeable membrane which allows nutrition to be carried into the cell by water (hydration), and allows toxins to be eliminated from the cell (flushing) after the cell uses what it needs to “power up.”
If we are stressed, eating poor nutrition — think processed food and chemicals — or not exercising, this membrane tightens up and doesn’t allow nutrition in or toxins out. What’s the result?
This also means a higher risk of long-term illness and disease.
