I have the great fortune of being apart of a wonderfully supportive community where we explore + discuss and discuss + explore the overwhelming complexities surrounding Lyme Disease and the multi-systemic dis-eases that accompany it. When we recently had a conference call with Anthony William, the Medical Medium, he invited us to explore some very simple, but very powerful foods that had been off my radar for various reasons and that would help to boost our immune system and reduce the viral load that so many of us are struggling with.
One of them being celery juice.
I had taken a break from my regular green juice of kale, spinach, cucumber, lemon, celery, ginger, and so on, and taking a break from juicing in general, because I don't love juicing in the winter months and to give my thyroid a rest from the goitrogenic overload that I was imposing on it unknowingly. The benefits of celery juice, however, are so numerous that I am reintroducing a daily 16oz of this healing drink into my morning. But keeping it super simple and room temperature :: just celery and maybe some lemon.
As Anthony tells us :: "Celery juice also has significant anti-inflammatory properties making it highly beneficial for those who suffer from autoimmune conditions.
Celery juice is also strongly alkaline and helps to prevent and counteract acid reflux, acidosis, high blood pressure, joint pain, ringing in ears, tingles & 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."
