What is True Detoxification and Cellular Cleansing?
When many people think about cleansing, they focus primarily on the liver, kidneys, and other organs. While those areas are extremely important, it’s also necessary to cleanse at the cellular level. When cellular cleansing occurs, the body can rid itself of damaged or malfunctioning parts of cells, including damaged mitochondria, which can truly be toxic if left unattended in the body. Damaged mitochondria, for instance, can lead to accelerated cellular damage and aging as well chronic diseases.
We don’t often hear about cellular cleansing or getting rid of damaged mitochondria because this mode of cleansing isn’t something we ingest. In fact, it has a lot to do with what we don’t ingest This is because cellular cleansing often comes about when we give our bodies a rest from regular meals, which helps our bodies use their built-in mechanisms to cleanse themselves at the cellular level. In fact, short periods of fasting and “semi-fasting” help to bolster the body’s ability to cleanse itself, beginning with the cells. On the other hand, eating regular meals all the time — especially processed foods — can get in the way of cellular cleansing.
While cleansing at the cellular level, it’s also important to remain properly hydrated, although over 75 percent of North Americans are already chronically dehydrated. Staying hydrated is essential for every bodily function, including cell metabolism, toxin removal, digestion, body temperature, and others. As far as cellular metabolism, however, staying hydrated must occur because all nutrients, oxygen, and more are moved through the cell membranes to the inner-workings of the cells. The bottom line is that lack of proper hydration can adversely affect cells and cellular reactions, quickly leading to a state of unhealth.
Likewise, it’s important to keep a healthy sodium-potassium balance. Potassium is an essential mineral necessary for proper bodily functions, including heart and digestive function, bone health, and smooth muscle contraction. Additionally, potassium is an electrolyte which serves to conduct electricity in the body so that the body’s cells, tissues, and organs work as they should. The problem is that most people get only about half of the potassium they need daily. That’s not the case with sodium intake, however. About 90 percent of us get too much of it, paving the way for high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Interestingly, approximately 75 percent of the sodium in America’s diet comes from processed foods.
A potassium shortfall is a problem in and of itself, but a study says that eating too much sodium while not getting enough potassium could be a double whammy. Dr. Thomas Farley, New York City’s health commissioner whose commentary on this study was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, says, “If you have too much sodium and too little potassium, it’s worse than either one on its own.” That’s why it should be a priority to have a potassium-sodium balance. It allows your cells to work as they should, especially during cellular cleansing.

How to Avoid Strains and Pains
Our modern digital age has brought us many conveniences. BlackBerry devices, iPhones, tablets and e-readers allow us to communicate and be entertained with the push of a button. Technology can improve our quality of life, but it comes with a price: being huddled over devices for long period of times can do more harm than good.
Using certain devices for extended periods of time can easily lead to neck strain, headaches, and pain in the shoulders, arms and hands. Anyone who has used a cellphone or tablet for an extensive amount of time has probably experienced the peculiar strain it puts on your upper body. These conditions even have their own name now: Text Neck.
Here are some simple strategies to help shut down text neck strain:
Take frequent breaks
Taking frequent breaks and looking up from your device can provide your neck with some relief from the pressure of looking down.
Sit up straight
It is important to sit up straight while texting. This way you can maintain good posture, relieving your back and shoulders from the strain of being hunched over.
Hold the phone a little higher
Holding the phone closer to eye level helps maintain a healthy posture and puts less strain on the neck.
Be sure to stretch often between long periods of extended use of devices. You can rotate your shoulders with your arms by your sides to relieve tension. You can also tuck your chin down to your neck and then look up – this helps to relieve some of the tension in your neck built from the common forward-down position you adopt when looking at your device.

They can check the neck for possible spinal misalignment and spinal dysfunction, and recommend strategies for correction.
