I've been juicing daily for quite some time, but was recently introduced to the Medical Medium's proper way to use celery juice to benefit the digestive system on a recent trip to Guatemala. I learned that drinking 16 ounces of straight celery juice in the morning, on an empty stomach, is a miraculous healing remedy. Learn more here. I already have an extensive morning routine of devotions, tongue scraping, oil pulling, lime water, etc....., but really wanted to give this a try.
I have always enjoyed eating celery and have used it in various recipes, but had no idea that it was an herb, and certainly didn't know that it contained impressive amounts of Vitamins C and K, as well as folate and potassium. Studies show that celery may help fight against cancer and liver disease, reduce inflammation (especially for brain-related diseases) and boost cardiovascular health. Celery contains flavonoids (powerful phytonutrients with antioxidant properties) that are abundant in numerous plants. With only 7 calories, 1/2 gram of fiber and less than 1 gram of sugar per rib celery is useful for any wellness plan.
Review the research, speak to your physician or naturopath to decide if this is something for you. I have to say that I've noticed a significant change in my body after doing this for the past 3 months. Most people who know me well would be surprised to hear that I have even more energy, but it's true. I do!
