I am more passionate than ever to discover what it is like to embody greater health and wholeness. I would like to say at this stage in my life I don’t have a choice and I’m open to embrace change. I have found it is imperative to take care of my precious vessel and feed it nourishing and sustainable foods. a.k.a. Keep it clean! My body deserves my attention! What’s that saying “If MaMa Ain’t happy nobody is happy.” I feel happier and healthier when I introduce more fruits and vegetables into my lifestyle along with using discernment of what quenches my palette! I choose not to eat food that has no nutritional value to it….BUT.. I am not perfect and don’t always keep on track but I do my best! I’ve heard people say: “Well your gonna die anyways so why not eat what ever you want.” I disagree: You are what you eat and we are given this precious body and it is important to treat it with upmost favor. I feel better physically, physiologically, mentally and spiritually when I do this.
I used to not prioritize food and eat unconsciously. I have come to know that when I make conscious decisions when it comes to food I feel better about myself, my mind feels clear and I make better decisions. There is one area I could improve upon and that is limiting my coffee intake. I have 1 cup a day and I think I will cut it down to several times a week and see how this goes. Sometimes it is easy to do what others are doing when it comes to eating habits.
I recently took up drinking celery juice in the AM before I put anything in my stomach. Anthony Williams (Medical Medium) has written several books and there is a lot of benefit from doing this. Celery Juice is good for many body aliments. According to him one of the aliments is Digestive Issues. I have been doing it for several weeks now and I do not as of yet have any concrete evidence how it is helping me BUT at this point it feels digestible and soothing and as they say “The Proof is in the Pudding.” and give it time!
If you interested in reading the potent healing properties (see below):
If people knew all the potent healing properties of celery juice, it would be widely hailed as a miraculous superfood.
Celery has an incredible ability to create sweeping improvements for all kinds of health issues.
CELERY JUICE STANDS ALONE
Celery is truly the savior when it comes to chronic illness.
I’ve seen thousands of people who suffer from chronic and mystery illness restore their health by drinking 16 ounces of celery juice daily on an empty stomach.
That’s why long ago I started the movement of drinking pure, straight celery juice, and it’s why I want to be sure people know how to use this potent drink correctly and successfully.
Celery juice is most powerful when you drink it SOLO.
While it’s great to consume other green juices or vegetables juices and add in items like spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro, or apples, drink those mixed juices at a different time than your straight celery juice.
These blends function differently than what I’m recommending as your greatest tool for recovering your health: pure celery juice taken on an empty stomach.
If you drink your celery juice first thing in the morning, it will also strengthen your digestion of foods you eat for the rest of the day.
How do I make celery juice?
1 large bunch of celery
Rinse the celery and run it through a juicer. Drink immediately for best results.
Alternatively, you can chop the celery and blend it in a high-speed blender until smooth. Strain well and drink immediately.
What is the ideal amount of celery juice to receive the healing benefits?
16 oz is the magic number.
Increasing your intake up to 24-32 oz a day, can be extremely beneficial for many battling chronic illness.
How much celery to make 16 oz ?
One large bunch typically makes 16 oz of juice.
When is the best time to drink celery juice?
Best consumed first thing in the morning before food.
If that is not possible, anytime during the day 15-30 minutes before or after eating something – is the 2nd best option.
Which juicer do you recommend?
Greenstar Juicer, Omega Juicer, and Aicock Juicer are all great depending on your budget, but any juicer will work
Does the celery have to be organic?
Organic is best, but if you can’t get organic don’t worry.
You can purchase conventionally grown celery.
Then wash each stalk with a drop of natural fragrance-free dish soap, followed by rinsing in water.
If you don’t have natural clear dish soap, give the celery a quick rinse in warm water.
Making sure to rinse each stalk.
Can I make celery juice ahead of time?
It’s best to drink celery juice immediately after juicing.
But if you don’t have options other wise, do not let it go past one day (24 Hours).
If using this option, make sure to seal it in a mason jar, and store in the fridge.
Do I need to cut off the leaves of the celery, they taste bitter?
You can leave them on, or cut them off.
Some people do prefer to cut them off, because they can make the juice a little bitter.
Can I freeze celery juice, and make batches ahead of time?
If you cannot drink your celery juice after making it, and making ahead and freezing is your only option, then freezing it is okay.
But this is a last resort, and should not be relied on.
Fresh is always best.
Celery juice’s powerful medicinal qualities will decrease when freezing it.
Can I chop and wash celery the night before so it’s ready to juice in the morning?
Yes, this is great way to prepare and save some time for the next morning.
What if I can’t stand the taste of straight celery juice?
If you find the taste of straight celery juice too strong, you can juice one cucumber and/or one apple with the celery.
This is a great option as you get adjusted to the flavor.
As you get used to it, keep increasing the ratio of celery; the greatest benefits come when celery juice is consumed on it’s own.
Is it okay to add lemon or lime to my celery juice?
Celery juice works best on it’s own.
Adding any other ingredients to the juice will dilute it’s medicinal properties.
Wait 15- 30 minutes after drinking, before consuming anything else.
Can I just eat celery instead of juicing it?
The reason we juice the celery versus eating it, is because juicing and removing the pulp (fiber) is the only way to get the powerful healing benefits; for healing chronic illness.
Eating celery itself is helpful and should be part of your diet, but you will not be able to consume enough celery to get the benefits of juicing it.
You wouldn’t be able to receive the concentrated undiscovered cluster salts, that do all of the following :
Quickly rebuild your hydrochloric acid so that your stomach can break down protein.
If protein isn’t broken down properly it will cause gut rot.
Strong hydrochloric acid is important to kill off pathogens entering your mouth.
Celery Juice increases and strengthens your bile.
Strong bile is important for the break down fats, and for the killing off pathogens; that have made their way into your body.
Eating straight celery wouldn’t allow you to get enough of celery’s cluster salts; that acts as antiseptics for pathogens.
Celery juice restores your central nervous system.
Removes old toxins and poisons, such as: old pharmaceuticals from your liver.
Is celery juice okay to consume while pregnant?
Yes, celery juice is safe and healthy to consume while pregnant.
But each person is different, so listen to your body.
If it feels too cleansing, you can try 16 oz of straight cucumber juice instead.
Can I add ice to my celery juice?
It’s best not to add ice, ice will dilute the healing properties of the celery juice.
Is it normal to experience diarrhea after drinking celery juice?
This is a normal detox reaction that some individuals that have a higher level of toxins may experience.
Celery juice will kill off unproductive bacteria in the gut, and can cause diarrhea.
Or in many people a looser stool, at first.
It also helps purge the liver, and can create some diarrhea – if the individual has an extremely toxic liver. Almost everyone today has some degree of liver toxicity, which can lead to countless symptoms and conditions. Find out more about how this develops and how you can support your liver in Liver Rescue.
If the reaction is really intense you can start with a lower amount such as : 2-8 oz of celery juice, and work up from there.
If it is still too intense, try 16 oz of straight cucumber juice.
Cucumber juice is more gentle, until you can handle celery juice.
I feel really tired after drinking celery juice, and experience an increase in symptoms, why does this happen?
This is a normal detox reaction especially for someone who may have toxic blood caused by viruses such as Epstein Barr, and bacteria such as Streptococcus; which can be a low grade infection that someone can have for years.
Celery juice is very healing, and the mineral salts will begin to kill off pathogens like viruses such as Epstein Barr and Shingles, as well as bacteria such as Streptococcus.
Giving some people who may already be feeling symptoms on–and–off in their life such as : fatigue and other symptoms, a temporary feeling of the symptoms coming back.
These symptoms will be short and brief.
This is a powerful healing step that celery juice can offer for long term future health — WITHOUT symptoms.
I experience more bloating after celery juice, what causes this?
Celery juice rapidly speeds up digestion.
It does this by prompting the liver to increase bile production, and instantly strengthening the stomachs hydrochloric acid production.
Which then begins to break down old undigested rotting protein, old rancid fats trapped at the bottom of the stomach, and in the small intestinal tract — that have been there for decades, in everyone.
Once these fats and proteins dissolve, a feeling of bloating occurs that can sometimes be mild to severe, depending on how toxic someone’s digestive tract has become.
Along with how much old rotten undigested debris is in their digestive tract.
I experience stomach pain or upset after drinking celery juice, what is causing this?
This is when someone’s stomach nerves are sensitive.
The vagus nerve is the main nerve that sends signals, and helps the stomach to function.
Often low grade viral infections such as Shingles and the Epstein Barr, create a lot of neurotoxins that mildly inflame the vagus nerve.
So when you drink celery juice, it begins to clean the neurotoxins off the tiny nerve endings inside the stomach lining.
This can cause a gentle reaction.
Also many peoples stomachs are filled with bacteria such as E. Coli, Streptococcus and H. Pylori.
These bacteria die off rapidly which can prompt a spasm, that can be temporarily painful.
