If you follow me on instagram, then you know I love my celery juice. I truly do. I know that without any information or background this sounds like possibly the weirdest drink on the planet. I get that, but let me explain. I first heard of drinking celery juice back in July 2017. I read about it in the book “Medical Medium” by Anthony William. I had been following Anthony on instagram "@medicalmedium" for a while at this point and loved the factual information he always posted. It took me awhile to buy his book and learn more about his story and what he was all about, but once I started reading “Medical Medium”, I couldn’t put it down. These days I will ramble on and on about him to anyone who is willing to listen to me. If I’ve ever talked to you about Anthony William please know it’s because I care about you and I want you to be in the best health, always. I truly believe Anthony’s expertise, although quite unusual, is unmatched and he is truly a blessing. After reading his book “Medical Medium” and feeling as if Anthony knew me personally because he identified every single symptom I’ve ever experienced, I was willing to try anything he recommended for health and vitality. When I found out about Anthony William I have been on my health and wellness journey for over 8 years, and although the difference between how I feel now and how I felt then is night and day, I still have stubborn symptoms that creep up. I’m also so fascinated with everything health and wellness that I love experimenting with new ideas, superfoods, techniques, etc. So when I had heard of drinking celery juice to heal and rid the body of the Epstein barr virus (more on this later, in another post), I was all for giving it a try. This medicinal drink, according to Anthony William, is responsible for strengthening hydrochloric acid in the gut and helps the liver to produce bile in order to break down food. It also supports the central nervous system and the adrenal glands. It cleanses the thyroid and helps the production of the thyroid hormone T3. In August I started drinking 16 oz of celery juice every day. It took me at least 3 weeks to notice any changes, but my digestion was better, my skin was so clear and dewy, I had more energy, and I had less cravings for salty foods. At this point, I’ve been drinking celery juice on and off for the past 9 months and highly, highly recommend it to anyone who wants to transform their health. I was out of the country for 2 weeks in February and the other two weeks of the month I wasn't drinking my celery juice and I noticed such a difference in my health. I started seeing a Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner in March which you can read about HERE and started to drink my celery juice again and after a month and a half, I feel better than I did before. All you need to do to make this simple drink is juice enough celery to make 16 oz (usually one whole bunch does the trick) or blend chopped celery with 1 cup of water until it turns into liquid and then strain through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag. Trust me, this powerful drink is so worth the trouble of buying celery on a weekly basis and juicing or blending it. Your health is worth it and you are worth it. Always.
