Celery Juice: Why I drink it everyday and the benefits I have experienced

November 19, 2018

I would like to call it the hottest new health trend, but it is so much more than that. I believe it is a “trend” that will stick around for a long time as more people try it, feel the benefits and share it. Which is exactly why I am writing to you about why I drink celery juice everyday; to continue to share this healing beverage in hopes others will try, heal and share as well.

Like most new health “trends”, I had read about it and why it is good for me; and sure if someone would make it for me every morning, I would probably have been more inclined to try it sooner. (just being honest) However, I do not have a personal juicer and it seemed like a lot of work to start doing everyday while I was still a bit skeptical wondering if its benefits are as powerful as described. At the time, I was struggling with having enough energy to make it through the day, and the thought of waking up earlier and adding one more thing to my “morning routine” did not sound too attractive at first.

But, as you know, if you follow me and have read my past blogs (you can read my story here if you have not), after brain surgery I was trying everything in my power to heal my body (holistically) and to feel like my strong self again. At the time I discovered celery juice, It was a little over 2 years post brain surgery, I was improving, but slowly (much slower than I would have liked) and new issues were popping up. I started having gut issues I didn’t have before, my fatigue was still debilitating at times, my skin was still breaking out, my adrenals were still drained and overall my body did not feel like it was functioning at its full potential. Having read Anthony Williams’ books (currently reading liver rescue) and really resonating with everything he says, I knew this was something I needed to make a priority.  I learned I was eating way too much fat (even healthy fat) clogging my liver and therefore interfering with my gut to be able to properly digest food. I also learned that our bodies are ladened with toxins and heavy metals everyday from our environment, food, vaccines, medications, beauty products etc. and I realized mine was as well. I had Epstein Barr in high school that I believe I never healed fully from and the medical medium says viruses such as EBV hold onto heavy metals in the body. My body had been through so much and I knew it was holding onto toxins not allowing me to fully heal. The mission was to kill off the viruses and allow my body to heal itself. Celery juice is described to help that. So, it finally got to a point where I was waking up early every morning to juice celery in hopes it would improve my health.

All information I am sharing with you today I learned through the medical medium – Anthony Williams, and my own personal experiences drinking this daily. This information is not to cure or diagnosis. This is also not a sponsored post. I just feel very passionate about this information and I want to share it with others.

Why Celery Juice:

  • Anti-inflammatory properties making it essential for those sufferings from any autoimmune illnesses
  • Loaded with mineral salts which has the ability to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and holds them in solution until they can be eliminated safely from your kidneys. 
  • Acting as a diuretic it flushes toxins out of your body
  • Contains significant amounts of calcium and silicon which can aid in the repair of damaged ligaments and bones
  • Rich in Vitamin-a, magnesium and iron which is nourishing to the blood and aid those suffering from high blood pressure, arthritis and anemia.
  • Soothes digestion, eliminates IBS symptoms and bloating
  • Supports and stabilizes your adrenals and thyroid
  • Improves neurological issues such as brain fog, vertigo, fatigue, numbness, anxiety
  • Clears up skin issues

 

How to Celery Juice:

I started on my celery juice journey. I woke up 20 min earlier everyday to make my juice. At first I was just using a blender. I would take 2 big bunches of celery (organic), clean it, chop it (clean the leaves out, it makes it bitter), toss it into a blender on high with ¼-½ cup of water. Blend, drain through a cheesecloth or a nut bag and drink.  Since, I have upgraded to a juicer, which is probably the same amount of time, but is a bit easier. You can do either. You want to drink 16 oz on an empty stomach every morning and then wait 20 minutes before you eat anything to allow the celery juice to do it work.

Outcome:

After the first few weeks, I was not seeing any changes in my gut health, which is primarily why I started to do it. I actually was getting adverse effects and feeling worse.  I was starting to think this is a hoaks. I started to dig a little deeper and read more about it.  I then learned that at first you may experience negative side effects as the body is detoxing and getting rid of toxins in your gut. (read more about that here). Well, that made sense because I instinctively knew I had a lot to get rid of.  I wanted to stick with it. After about 2 months of religiously drinking it every morning, I started to see major improvements in my digestion. I was shocked and very happy. Everything was working as it should, no more stomach aches or bloating. There was a time in my life where those were daily occurrences. 

Then I noticed my skin was clearing up, felt so smooth and had a glow to it. I had battled dry, uneven skin toned, bumpy skin for years. I finally felt like I could leave the house without makeup and still have a glow.

Also, I do not drink any caffeine (I have never had coffee in my life) so in the mornings it can take me a little longer to wake up then the average caffeine drinker; but this celery juice was giving me so much energy, I felt like I was having caffeine.

I started to have more energy through the day, my mood was lifting. Clark even said to me one day “I feel like you have been feeling really great lately, you haven’t complained and you have a lot more energy”. That MELTED MY HEART. He was right. I was feeling SO much better, the best I have since surgery. And the only major change I had made was drinking celery juice every morning and following some other of the medical medium’s healing protocols. I felt like this drink was healing my body.

It has been about 9 months of celery juicing every morning (whenever possible – travel can cause some disturbances in availability) and I feel amazing. I will continue to do this forever. It is my morning “coffee”.

    Thank you so much for all the valuable information. I noticed that you mentioned that you thought you felt worse at first with the celery juicing. Well, I’ve had hepatitis A as a teenager and have had a compromised immune system ever since, with my liver having to always work harder than most. With that issue, my sleeping has always been an issue and have noticed that it has been worse since starting to juice😫 Do you think it’s because I’m into juicing only about a week?

      It could be because your body is detoxing more and sometimes symptoms get worse before they get better! If you are comfortable, I would stick with it for a little bit and see how you feel in a few weeks. It took me a few months to feel a positive impact!

      Thank you for reading and following my journey! It took a few months, I would say at least 6 months before I saw amazing, solid change. 3 months I started to see improvements. It could happen faster for others, everyone’s bodies are so different!
