I was intrigued when I came across an article by Anthony William, the Medical Medium, about the health benefits of drinking celery juice. I normally add celery to my green drink, however, I’ve never used celery only to create the juice. With today being St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to try the celery juice this morning.
According to Anthony, drinking 16 ounces of celery juice every morning, on an empty stomach, can powerfully transform digestion and health in as little as a week.
Anthony goes on to share the following info:
“Celery juice has anti-inflammatory properties which makes it extremely beneficial for people suffering from autoimmune conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Migraines, Vertigo, IBS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, Lupus, Guillain-Barre, Sarcoidosis, Raynaud’s, Meniere’s, GERD, Bursitis, Restless Leg Syndrome, and Gout.
This green juice is also very alkaline and helps to prevent and counteract acid reflux, acidosis, high blood pressure, joint pain, ringing in ears, tingling and numbness, hot flashes, blurry eyes, headaches, heart palpitations, edema, heartburn, fatigue, dizziness, muscle cramps, sleep issues, constipation, and bloating. It also helps to purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems. Celery contains compounds called coumarins which are known to enhance the activity of certain white blood cells and support the vascular system.
Celery juice is rich in organic sodium content and has the ability to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and hold them in solution until they can be eliminated safely from the kidneys. It is also an effective natural diuretic and has ample ability to flush toxins out of the body which makes it excellent to use on any weight loss program.”
That’s a lot of health benefits from this one green vegetable! I used almost one bunch of celery, processing it through my juicer, to obtain 16 ounces of juice. The bright green juice was refreshing and light. What did it taste like? It tasted like celery…without cheese or peanut butter!
If the taste is too strong, cucumber or apple can be added. However, Anthony says those additions dilute the juice and lessen its effectiveness somewhat. I didn’t mind the taste at all. And I often crave alkaline foods, which is my body’s way of taking care of itself.
My intention is to drink celery juice every morning, after my warm lemon water, for a week. I’ll share later any changes or improvements that I note. It was a great St. Patrick’s Day kick off today. Cheers!
