By incorporating daily habits that allow for cellular function to upregulate improving your metabolism and elimination of toxic by-products we can all strive to improve our mind and body.
This 3 part series is an in-depth collection discussing what foods detoxify your body and their beneficial effects on your body and mind.
Part 2 – Cell Membrane Cleanse
Neurotransmitters, brain peptides, hormones, and endorphins generate messengers that bind to cell membrane receptors. The receptor is on the outside of the cell and the messenger hooks onto it as a way to tell the cells what to do next. If cells have metabolism by-products that have accumulated the ongoing communication from hormones of the immune, endocrine, and nervous system at cell receptors is inhibited. Cells will experience what is referred to as “noxious build-up,” and cell-to-cell communication can be faulty. Cells of an organ that are supposed to work together may not be able to because of the TOXIC NOISE in their environment. Physical exertion may feel harder than it should, mental focus may be difficult to harness and you might go looking for stimulants such as caffeine or sugar to try and get your mojo back.
To keep cell membranes clean and functioning optimally there are few daily habits that we can do.
- Add these important oils to your diet to help rebalance the Omega 3 to Omega 6 ration. Flaxseed oil, pumpkin oil and cod liver oil.
- Eat clean cholesterol from unbroken egg yolk, (hard boiled or poached), non-homogenized dairy, organic butter. (membranes should be 50% cholesterol)
- Drink 2 litres of filtered water daily
