Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog articles: Healing Foods. I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
Chronic fatigue syndrome has always been misunderstood by medical communities. What was initially often deemed to be laziness by doctors is actually a very real physical condition. Thankfully, chronic fatigue syndrome is starting to be more validated and recognized today, however medical research and science still don't know the true cause of this condition.
If you experience chronic fatigue, I share the truth about its real cause (whether you have received a diagnosis or not) in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide. You'll also find out what's really behind almost 200 other symptoms and conditions, including autoimmune conditions, acne, eczema, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, addictions, eye problems, cysts, fibroids, endometriosis, tingles and numbness, rheumatoid arthritis, ALS, dizziness, fatty liver, weight gain, and much more. You'll also discover exactly how celery juice can help these symptoms and conditions heal and other guidance to help you move forward with healing.
Below is an excerpt from Medical Medium Celery Juice where I share the true cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and how celery juice can help this health problem. For more healing information, you can order your copy of Medical Medium Celery Juice now.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME)
"Some of the newer terms for chronic fatigue syndrome got their names from medical research and science finally recognizing that when people complained about being chronically tired, feeling like their legs were bags of cement, being unable to keep their eyes open and also unable to sleep, and suffering from a host of other symptoms that made it a struggle to function day to day, it was real. As medical communities started to take these complaints seriously, they realized that brain inflammation could be a factor, which is how terms such as encephalomyelitis (brain and spinal cord inflammation) became involved.
Long before the medical establishment recognized CFS, I saw it as an actual illness and described it as neurological fatigue. As I’ve always said, Epstein-Barr virus is the cause. This is true for the millions of people around the world suffering from it. More pronounced cases of ME/CFS are caused by certain strains of EBV that are a little more aggressive and create stronger neurotoxins that inflame the entire nervous system. Neurons in the brain are even affected, causing brain fog, confusion, and difficulty walking with any vigor.
As with any viral infection, celery juice is our best weapon. EBV cannot become immune to celery juice’s sodium cluster salts. Further, people dealing with ME/CFS have compromised immune systems, and white blood cells find peace and solace with the trace minerals that celery juice offers. Its vitamin C also fuels the immune system so it can seek out and destroy the EBV that causes ME/CFS.
You’ll find that most everyone with ME/CFS these days is also diagnosed with Lyme disease. See the connection? EBV is behind both of them and always has been (read Medical Medium Celery Juice for more information on Lyme disease if this is your first time hearing this). They’re mistakenly diagnosed as two separate problems, even though you know now they come from the same source. Celery juice has a profound effect on recovering someone’s nervous system when it’s been compromised and inflamed from EBV, and that makes all the difference whether someone is trying to heal from ME/CFS, Lyme, or both."
Drinking celery juice daily in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice can be helpful for any chronic illness or symptom. There’s special undiscovered healing properties inside celery juice that medical research and science are not yet aware of. Some of these healing properties include celery juice’s undiscovered sodium cluster salts, which kill off pathogens that cause illness; its undiscovered cofactor micro trace minerals, which rejuvenate stomach gland tissue; and its complete electrolytes, which recharges your neurons. These are just a few of the many healing properties celery juice holds.
You can order your copy of Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide to find out more about how celery juice can help you and your loved ones heal. You’ll also receive exact guidance on how to drink it and how to avoid common mistakes to ensure you get the most out of its healing properties. Celery juice is a powerful herbal remedy that can truly help move you forward. It is my prayer that you will take advantage of what this humble herb can offer you when juiced and consumed in the right way.

Women's reproductive health issues have never been more prevalent than they are today. Nine out of ten women are dealing with at least one symptom or condition, such as a cyst, fibroid, menopause symptoms, painful menstrual periods, endometriosis, HPV, breast density, polycystic ovarian syndrome, infertility, or pelvic inflammatory disease. Women are not meant to be suffering with these health issues like they are today.
Thankfully, there are answers here for why these conditions and symptoms develop and healing steps you can take to recover from them. In Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, I share the true causes of all of these reproductive issues and many other symptoms and conditions. I also explain how the incredible healing benefits celery juice holds can help you heal these health issues and how to make this special herbal extraction work best for you.
Below is an excerpt from Medical Medium Celery Juice where I share the true causes of two of these conditions––fibroids and breast density––and how celery juice can help them. For more healing information, you can order your copy of Medical Medium Celery Juice now.
"Fibroids in the uterus take various forms, with their cause unknown by medical research and science. The truth is that fibroids are sometimes caused by viruses Relief from Your Symptoms and Conditions 75 such as Epstein-Barr and other times caused by bacteria such as strep. When it’s viral, it’s more of a cystic variety of fibroid, with a rounder shape. When it’s bacterial, it’s more like scar tissue or an adhesion inside the reproductive system. The sodium cluster salts in celery juice seek out and destroy bacteria and viruses, minimizing the pathogenic loads responsible for fibroids while also helping shrink existing fibroids."
"Breast density occurs when the liver has become toxic through the decades. An overburdened, sluggish, stagnant liver filled with a large volume of the troublemakers explored in Liver Rescue bog it down to the point that it’s not able to act as the proper filter it once was. The lymphatic system becomes a secondary filter, which basically means that the breasts become secondary filters, with a lot of toxins accumulating there because of all the lymphatic vessels present. Years of poor diet components and everyday exposures to toxic substances find their way inside breast tissue, creating calcifications and scar tissue. We’re not talking about scar tissue from breast surgery. This is scar tissue from cells not getting enough vital oxygen and nutrients.
Calcium from dairy products is a leading contributor to breast density, because the calcium settles in breast tissue. This is not a healthy calcium; it’s an aggressive calcium that’s antagonistic to women’s health and becomes fuel for pathogens. Toxic heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum settle in the breast tissue, as well. If someone’s diet is not adequately hydrating, then dehydration of breast tissue can occur slowly over time as well, keeping cells from becoming revitalized by critical living water. The Epstein-Barr virus is responsible for more advanced breast conditions and issues.
Celery juice not only cleanses and frees the liver over time, it helps cleanse the lymphatic system as well by bringing in fresh deliveries of living water filled with sodium cluster salts, trace minerals, and phytochemicals to flush out the troublemakers. Rejuvenating the lymphatic system has everything to do with cleaning up breast tissue. Celery juice’s unique travel velocity and saturation rate also mean that it has the ability to find its way through dense, hardened, fibrous breast tissue all the way to the skin. Celery juice provides anti-tumor, anti-adhesion properties."
Drinking celery juice daily in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice is so important for these health problems and so many other chronic illnesses and symptoms for these undiscovered reasons and many more. In Medical Medium Celery Juice, I share the true causes of almost 200 other symptoms and conditions and how celery juice helps them also. I know that this book can be of help to anyone with a chronic illness or symptom or anyone who wishes to learn how they can help protect their health for the future.

Not sure how to bring fresh aloe vera into your diet? This delicious slushy is a fantastic way to sneak in its incredible healing benefits. It’s refreshing and sweet and only takes a few minutes to prepare.
Aloe vera possesses more than 70 trace minerals that are grouped into undiscovered medicinal alloys. These alloys work together with the phytochemical aloin to calm inflammation in the gut, which makes it a top aid for IBS, Crohn’s, and colitis. This anti-inflammatory nature rejuvenates the appendix, as well as the ileum—a critical portion of the intestinal tract, because that’s where the body produces vitamin B12 when the digestive system is functioning as it should. That’s not all—as aloe rehabilitates the ileum, it also delivers a very bioavailable form of B12, making aloe an all-around B12 enhancer.
Aloe is wonderful for relieving constipation. It is also antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal (including anti-mold), and anti-parasitic (including anti-worm). It is incredibly useful for killing off the pathogens that create colon cancer, stomach cancer, and rectal cancer, as well as eliminating H. pylori and supporting the pancreas. It also has the unique ability to stop the growth of polyps and reduce the growth of hemorrhoids. And if you’re concerned that you’ve been exposed to radiation, turn to aloe—it has beta-carotene combined with lignins that remove radiation from the body.
Aloe Watermelon Slushy
2 cups frozen seedless watermelon*
2 tbsp aloe (double for extra medicinal benefits)
1/2 cup fresh strawberries*
1 tbsp lime juice
* You can use fresh watermelon and frozen strawberries if you prefer.
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

For decades #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Anthony William Medical Medium has been recommending that people drink 16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach every morning. Today, millions of people around the world are participating in this healing practice and experiencing the benefits for themselves.
You might be wondering why 16 ounces is recommended specifically. The reason is because when you drink celery juice it has quite a distance to travel. To receive as many of the healing benefits of celery juice as possible, this herbal extraction must travel from the mouth, through the digestive system, then into the liver and even eventually the brain.
On its journey through your body, the celery juice faces many obstacles, from remnants of toothpaste and mouthwash, to bacteria, viruses, unproductive fungus, rancid fats, and much more. Drinking 16 ounces of straight celery juice is the amount needed for the juice to overcome these obstacles and reach the parts of the body it needs to in order to bring its full healing benefits.
That doesn’t mean you can’t drink less. Many people start with drinking 8 ounces or even less and build up to 16 ounces over time. That is fantastic. Others feel best when they drink 32 ounces. That provides even more healing support for your body.
Celery juice, when consumed in the right way and the right amount consistently, is a powerful and miraculous healing remedy and millions of people are noticing the benefits it provides, such as clearer skin, improved digestion, less bloating, sustained energy, better mental clarity, weight loss, and stable moods, just to name a few. People are healing from all kinds of acute and chronic illnesses, including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, SIBO, constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, blood sugar issues, migraines, acid reflux, high blood pressure, addictions, adrenal issues, gout, allergies, autoimmune conditions, and countless others, from drinking plain celery juice daily.

If you’ve ever experienced digestive problems such as constipation, diarrhea, bloating, excess gas, stomach pain, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), or looked into how the body works, you might have heard about the digestive enzymes we need to break down food. These digestive enzymes are crucial, but they’re not the only digestive enzymes your body uses. There are three other types of digestive enzymes you need and where they come from might surprise you: celery juice.
Medical research and science doesn’t yet know that celery juice contains completely different digestive enzymes, which perform a separate function to the digestive enzymes that break down food in your stomach. These digestive enzymes are completely unique to celery juice, meaning you can’t get them from any other food. As I share in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, celery juice’s digestive enzymes are “like little capsules that are activated by pH change when they enter the small intestinal tract. One celery juice enzyme can reignite, revive, and reactivate multiple weakened digestive enzymes from other sources that are hanging around in the small intestine.”
What does this mean for your body?
First, it’s important to understand that almost everyone today has digestive enzymes that are not as strong as they’re meant to be. The reason for this is because the liver plays a critical role in producing one essential type of digestive enzyme––a truth which is decades away from being discovered by research and science. But the problem is that nine out of ten people right now have livers that are overburdened and sluggish from having to deal with so many toxins, pathogens, pollutants, poor diet and lifestyle choices, alcohol, medication, drugs, cigarettes, air fresheners, colognes and perfumes, and more. A struggling liver impacts the production of the type of digestive enzyme the liver is responsible for, which in turn affects digestion and contributes to other problems within the body. This is one key reason why so many people experience digestive issues of some kind over their lifetime. If you’ve been fortunate enough to have not experienced any digestive issues yet, it’s still important to take preventative steps now to avoid suffering with them in the future.
Celery juice's digestive enzymes are a saving grace to these weak enzymes almost everyone has. They come along and reinvigorate these weary enzymes so they can do their job better. Plus, celery juice’s enzymes re-stimulate enzymes from food that are in the small intestine. Celery juice also revives the liver so it can produce stronger bile-related digestive enzymes in the first place and helps strengthen the pancreas and ignite pancreatic enzymes. In addition, the enzymes in celery juice themselves are profoundly powerful for the breakdown, digestion, and assimilation of certain nutrients that neither bile nor hydrochloric acid addresses, because the digestion process is that complex. Medical research and science do not yet fully understand how digestion works and how intricate, involved, and miraculous it is.
The benefits I’ve shared here are just a handful of the ways celery juice’s enzymes are instrumental in improving the health and functioning of your body. There’s many more ways they support you. Celery juice actually contains well over two dozen varieties of enzymes, most of them undiscovered and involved in the breakdown of waste matter inside the intestinal tract. But it’s the healing benefits the three special undiscovered enzymes I mentioned above provide that are one of the main reasons so many people feel better and heal when they drink 16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach every morning. You can read more about celery juice’s digestive enzymes and the other incredible healing benefits of celery juice in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Celery juice isn’t a short-term fad or trend that is going to soon pass. It’s not something that’s popular right now but will soon be a distant memory. That will never happen with celery juice because its healing power is too great. It has made that much of a difference in millions of people’s health and lives already and will continue to help many millions more. Celery juice, when consumed in the specific way I share in Medical Medium Celery Juice has the potential to bring improvement and healing to all kinds of chronic illnesses and symptoms, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, acid reflux, bloating, SIBO, migraines, anxiety, depression, dermatitis, allergies, fatigue, mood swings, reproductive issues, fibromyalgia, streptococcus, and much more.
This humble herb’s medicine, extracted through the juicing process, is truly the most powerful medicine of our time healing millions worldwide. I want nothing more than for you and your loved ones to try it for yourself as I describe in Medical Medium Celery Juice so that you too can experience the healing benefits it provides. In Medical Medium Celery Juice I also answer hundreds of questions I receive daily about celery juice and give you exact instructions for how to get the most healing benefits from celery juice. Thank you for your support and commitment to healing. It means the world to me.

Sometimes simple is all you need—or have time for. When you’re running out the door or too busy to follow a recipe, you don’t need to sacrifice nutrition or flavor for convenience. Instead, pull together these quick and easy food combinations specifically geared to support your healing process. Better yet, prep a few of these pairs ahead so that when time is of the essence, all you need to do is grab them and go.
Cauliflower florets + Apple slices: this combination brings inflammation down in the thyroid while providing new memory to the thyroid’s cells, teaching them to be independent after they may have grown sluggish from thyroid medication dependency.
Tomatoes + Spinach: together, these foods strengthen the liver at the same time that they flush the lymphatic system and build up the immune system to fend off a viral load that may target the thyroid.
Celery + Dates: combining critical mineral salts with high-quality, bioavailable glucose, this is a powerful adrenal restorative to provide backup superpower for the thyroid.
Banana + Dulse flakes: iodine, potassium, and sodium together in this snack strengthen the entire endocrine system and central nervous system against neurotoxins and their ill effects.
Kale + Mango: this combination of alkaloids and carotenes allows them to easily enter the thyroid, helping to stop the growth of nodules and cysts there.
Pear + Arugula: wonderful for protecting the thyroid from atrophy and shrinkage. Together, these foods boost the thyroid’s frequency abilities.
Wild blueberries + Papaya: provide fighting power to stop, reduce, and prevent thyroid tumors (both cancerous and benign). Restore thyroid tissue after part of the gland has been surgically removed or killed off through radioactive iodine treatment.
Tangerine + Raspberries: as a team, these foods help prevent the calcium loss that can occur as the thyroid virus forces the body to use its calcium stores to wall off the virus in nodules and cysts, both in the thyroid itself and throughout the body. Help prevent osteoporosis.
For more information on the true causes of thyroid problems and how to heal, check out the New York Times Bestselling book Medical Medium Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr.

Spirulina is often deemed the most nutritionally complete of all foods and has countless uses as a supplement for maintaining good health and preventing diseases. This is because it contains a plentiful supply of many important nutrients and antioxidants, including protein, complex carbohydrates, iron, and vitamins A and K, as well as B complex. It’s also rich in chlorophyll, fatty and nucleic acids, and lipids. Spirulina is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA, a compound found in breast milk that helps develop healthier babies.
Best Source of Beta-Carotene
Spirulina provides a profusion of carotenoids such as best-carotene and yellow xanthophylls. In fact, spirulina is the richest beta-carotene food. The beta-carotene found in spirulina is ten times more concentrated than carrots.
Iron is essential for building a strong internal system, yet it is one of the most common mineral deficiencies (zinc is the most common). Spirulina is rich in iron, magnesium and trace minerals and is easier to absorb than iron supplements. Ten grams of spirulina can supply up to 70% of the minimum daily requirements for iron.
About 60% of spirulina’s dry weight is protein, which in the form it comes in within spirulina, is essential for growth and cell regeneration. It’s a good replacement for fatty meat and dairy products.
Builder of Beneficial Flora
Spirulina suppresses bad bacteria like E. coli and stimulates beneficial flora like lactobacillus and bifidobactria in the digestive tract to promote healthy digestion and proper bowel function.
Healthy flora is one of the foundations of good health. It increases the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the foods we eat and helps protect against infection.
Spirulina has a completely unique composition of phytonutrients, including chlorophyll, phycocyanin and polysaccharides, that can help to purge toxins from the body. In 1994, a Russian Patent was awarded for spirulina, deeming it a medical food for reducing allergic reactions from radiation sickness. This was a result of 270 children in Chernobyl consuming five grams a day for 45 days. Radionucleides were lowered by 50% and allergic sensitivities were normalized.
Critical For Removing Toxic Heavy Metals
Spirulina is essential for removing heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, lead, cadmium, and toxic copper from the liver, reproductive system, intestinal tract, thyroid, and brain. Getting rid of these metals gets rid of some of the most favored food of viruses, which are behind many chronic illnesses and symptoms, including autoimmune diseases.
When consumed within 24 hours of each other, barley grass juice powder, spirulina, cilantro, wild blueberries, and Atlantic dulse provide the most effective method on the planet of removing heavy metals. These foods each have their singular strengths, performing slightly different roles in the detoxification process.
During the removal process, metals can get “dropped” or dispersed back into the organs, at which point another member of the team will swoop in, grab the metal, and continue the journey toward the finish line. I call this “pass the football.” On its own, each individual player isn’t 100 percent effective; as a team, they are your anti–heavy metal secret weapon!
Important For Any Chronic Illness & Symptom
Spirulina is an important supplement for anyone with any chronic illness or symptom, or for anyone who wishes to help prevent illness or symptoms in the future. As shared in Medical Medium, Thyroid Healing and Liver Rescue, spirulina:
Helps restore brain tissue and rebuilds the central nervous system
Helps stabilize glucose levels in the blood
Provides critical micronutrients for the thyroid and to bolster the endocrine system
Removes not only heavy metals but also other toxins from the liver, intestinal tract, brain, nervous system and thyroid
Helps grow fresh neurons and strengthen neurotransmitters
Contains high levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and chromium, which reinforce adrenal strength
Help to remove radioactive iodine from the thyroid over time, bringing what’s left of the gland back to life in a balanced manner
Contains iodine that’s very effective at acting as an antiseptic against Epstein-Barr virus (the cause of thyroid problems) cells in the thyroid
Can reduce the growth of nodules, tumors, and cysts (both cancerous and benign)
Stops viral and bacterial growth inside the liver
Strengthens the liver’s immune system, and helps in its over 2,000 chemical functions
Aids the liver’s glucose storage and protein conversions
An Athlete’s Best Friend
Spirulina increases stamina levels in athletes and its rich nutrient content and bioavailable protein content helps build muscle mass. It can curb hunger that may develop during demanding training routines, helping to maintain an athlete’s ideal body weight.
Other Potential Benefits: Promotes healthy eyes, great for anti-aging, helps protect against infection, great for digestive health, increases absorption of nutrients from food, eliminates mercury and other deadly toxins commonly inside the body, helps prevent the onset of cardiovascular diseases, and more.
Healing Tip: High-quality spirulina is the best protein powder you can use in morning drinks and smoothies. Try having it in the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie daily for tremendous benefits. It is the easiest to digest and by far the most beneficial out of all the protein powders. It deeply replenishes the body with much needed mineral and micro-nutrients. It’s a whole food vitamin and mineral and protein powder packed into one.
Tasty Tip: Sprinkle over watermelon or add to Thai coconut water.

Every single person today has a liver that needs proper care. Your liver plays a fundamental and critical role in your health and in what your health will look like in 20 years, even if you don’t suffer with any symptoms or illnesses right now or you’ve been told your liver is in good working order. There’s more to understand about your what’s really happening inside the livers of everyone today and what your liver needs from you to protect your health in the years to come.
The liver is responsible for more than 2,000 chemical functions in the body (though science and research only believe it’s responsible for about 500). This highly intelligent, special organ works so hard for you, day in and day out. But your liver needs your help in order to do its many jobs, which ultimately keep you alive. Your liver needs the right foods, herbs and supplements to cleanse, detoxify and heal. And, very importantly, you need to know what not to do so you don’t make your liver’s job even harder. That’s why I wrote Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, so you can have the information you need to take good care of your liver and protect your health and your family’s health.
You’ll read new undiscovered information in Liver Rescue that will transform the way you think about your liver and what your body needs to recover from chronic symptoms and illnesses, as well as to prevent illnesses later in life. Because the truth is that nine out of ten people today already have a sluggish, stagnant, fatty, toxic or sick liver. And having a sluggish, fatty, overburdened liver plays a central role in almost every symptom and condition that people suffer with today. With the truth in your hands and the right nutrients and support, your liver can regain its health and work even more effectively to recover and prevent symptoms and illnesses.
How Your Liver Works For You
In order to care for the liver, it’s important to understand how it works. There’s a highway of blood called the hepatic portal vein that rushes from your gastrointestinal tract into your liver. This blood vessel brings vitamins, minerals, nutrients, hormones, oxygen, hydration and, unfortunately, troublemakers too.
I talk in great detail about what I call the “Liver Troublemakers” in Liver Rescue. They’re hundreds of different toxins, pollutants, and pathogens like pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, prescription drugs, aluminum, lead, copper, mercury, viruses, bacteria and more. These are the toxins we’re surrounded by in our modern world and that we are even born into this world with (not because of genetics but because they are passed down from generation to generation through the family line). They’re what makes us sick. They’re what cause disease and chronic illness, including the conditions believed to be autoimmune diseases (learn more about the mistaken autoimmune theory in Thyroid Healing and Liver Rescue).
The liver is a master at sorting out the good and the bad. It takes the good stuff—the nutrients and other helpful natural compounds—and puts them where they need to be used in the liver. Your liver is incredibly smart. It knows all about the compounds that are in a food as well as how to store or distribute those elements.
Take the example of an apple. This incredible piece of fruit contains a living water that’s hydrating and nourishing for your liver and your entire body. The liver can take the special living water from that apple, compress it and store it until it needs to be used at a later date. Then when your body needs those elements or you are dehydrated, your liver can reactivate and rehydrate that living water and send it out into your bloodstream. This is all undiscovered information that medical science and research are unaware of. I want you to know how truly miraculous your liver is so you can take proper care of it. I explain exactly how to do this in Liver Rescue.
The liver’s ability to orchestrate everything that comes in from that hepatic portal vein keeps you in balance, and it keeps your body functioning. It’s not known the science and research yet, but your liver also has its very own immune system to help protect itself and in doing so protect you. I have a chapter in Liver Rescue on your liver’s immune system with a full explanation of how it works for you.
Your liver also identifies the liver troublemakers I mentioned (for a full list and explanation of each, see Liver Rescue) and works to neutralize and detoxify them. Neutralizing is a process where the liver makes the toxin less harmful, so that if the toxin travels through the bloodstream and especially to the heart and brain, it won’t cause major problems.
The liver also holds onto some of the worst offenders and locks them away deep inside itself. It really doesn’t want certain toxins floating around your body and making their way to your heart or brain—these troublemakers are too dangerous. So they get stored away in deep pockets of the organ.
But we need our livers to be healthy in order to do all of this well. If the liver is too overwhelmed by toxins and poor food choices (now or in the past), and if it’s become sluggish or fatty or weak, it can’t do its job properly. And your health begins to suffer or worsen even more. Even if you don’t have any symptoms or conditions right now, it doesn’t mean they are not in the process of developing internally. As I shared before, nine out of ten people have a sluggish liver and soon enough it will be ten out of ten people for all the reasons I share in Liver Rescue, so it’s essential that everyone knows what their liver needs and how to curb and heal the symptoms and conditions that can result.
Cleaning House For a Fresh Start
It takes the right kind of cleanse to help flush out the toxins from your liver, and in doing so to lighten the liver’s load. In Liver Rescue I share the Liver Rescue 3:6:9 Cleanse, which is specifically designed to work with your liver; not against it. This Cleanse is a gentle and safe way to pull out the toxins that are burdening your liver so it can effectively eliminate existing or incoming troublemakers—viruses, bacteria, chemicals and metals—before they make you sick. You can repeat the cleanse as many times and as often as you’d like.
The Liver Rescue Morning I also share is an incredibly healing practice to bring into your life daily or as often as possible, also. Along with the different healing foods and supplements (with the suggested dosages I include in Liver Rescue) to help your liver heal and strengthen.
It’s important to know that there are many different programs, cleanses, practices, flushes, and diets out there that are popular or said to help your liver. Unfortunately, almost all of them do not help the liver or are even harmful to it. It’s vital you know the truth about what the liver really needs from you and how to safely and effectively cleanse and support it. Learn more about harmful liver flushes and other liver misunderstandings and myths in Liver Rescue.
What your liver needs to be healthy is oxygen, water, sugar and mineral salts. These elements, along with nutrients from fruits and vegetables, are what the organ craves. Interestingly, the liver can only take in the nutrients when they’re surrounded by sugar (glucose). Of course, I’m not talking about table sugar or corn syrup, I’m talking about the natural health-giving sugars in fruits, tomatoes, potatoes and squash.
People who are on no-fruit or low-carbohydrate diets are unknowingly starving their livers and doing themselves a real disservice. If a nutrient comes in but it isn’t bound by a sugar, your liver will let it roll on by. Sugar allows the liver to take in the nutrient. Sugar is the fuel that helps your liver break down fat too. This may surprise you given how popular and trendy high fat and high protein and low carb diets (whether they are plant based or animal based) are today. While these diets have some benefits in the respect that they take our processed and junk foods, these diets are still problematic. I have a whole chapter on this topic in Liver Rescue because it’s so critical to understand so you know how to take care of your health.
Your liver also needs natural sugars to keep cool. The liver is a naturally hot organ, but toxins and high protein, high fat diets make it hot in a toxic way. Glucose from fruits and carbohydrate-rich vegetables help it cool.
Your Liver’s Neighbor: The Gallbladder
The hot liver shoots a sludge of gunk, toxins, poisons and chemicals, along with cholesterol and bilirubin, into the gallbladder. The gallbladder is a naturally cooler organ, and its temperature is linked with the temperature of the liver. The hotter the liver gets, the cooler the gallbladder needs to get. When a too-hot liver leads to a very cool gallbladder, people experience symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. These issues stem from the dynamic between the liver and the gallbladder.
When the hot gunk cools in the gallbladder, stones form. That’s how people get gallbladder stones. In Liver Rescue I talk about the foods that dissolve those stones and clear the toxins too.
Foods To Support Your Liver
Now that you know more about how the liver works, I want to share a few of the top foods, herbs and supplements that will help you cleanse, heal and take care of it. I cover many more in Liver Rescue, along with how they the help your liver and body, and also feature some delicious healing recipes that incorporate many of these special foods.
Apples provide an active living water that hydrates the liver and supports the liver’s ability to hydrate your body. Apples also starve bacteria, yeast and mold out of the intestinal tract and liver. In doing so they keep sludge out of the gallbladder. Apples can also dissolve gallstones. Eat one to three apples a day (or more) if you can.
Artichokes contain phytochemical compounds that inhibit the development of tumors and cysts in the liver. Artichokes also contain many chemical functions that help the liver neutralize toxins before they get to the brain or heart. They help the liver screen and filter your blood.
Asparagus is high in flavonoids and powerful anti-inflammatory compounds—they’re like a natural aspirin. They also expel and dislodge fat cells and other poisons. Asparagus cleanses, detoxifies and soothes the liver.
Bananas are antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. The fructose in bananas provides a quick fuel for the liver—it’s one of the organ’s favorite food sources. Bananas also sooth the lining of the intestinal tract.
Berries are a rich medicine chest for the liver. Your liver contains a type of cell known as Kupffer cells, and wild blueberries especially contain the kinds of antioxidants those kuppfer cells need. Raspberries, blackberries and blueberries are all powerful healing foods for your liver.
Brussels sprouts are an ultimate liver cleansing food. You can eat them raw, steam them or even juice them. Brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables have a special sulfur that expels poisons and pathogens from your liver.
Celery contains undiscovered subgroups of sodium that I call cluster salts. These cluster salts protect liver cell membranes. They strip the cells of viruses down and bind onto free floating poisons. Drinking sixteen ounces of pure celery juice with nothing added on an empty stomach every morning is a powerful way to cleanse your liver.
Cilantro binds onto heavy metals so you can safely eliminate them from your liver and body. Cilantro also contains phytochemical compounds that cling to other troublemakers, such as neurotoxins and dermatoxins, which end up in our livers. Cilantro is another liver cleanser.
Cranberries do many jobs for the liver. They cleanse the deep parts of the liver. The harsh fruit acid in cranberries kills pathogens. They also have a tremendous amount of vitamin C that steps the oxidation of cells.
Cucumbers are an ally for the liver. They provide a hydrating liver water just like apples. Cucumbers also cleanse the liver.
Dandelion greens trigger a squeezing action in the liver that helps it release toxins. .
Lemons and limes improve hydrochloric acid (HCL) production in the stomach. They also cleanse fatty livers and help dissolve gallstones.
Melons are an incredibly powerful cleansing food that also have the ability to hydrate the liver. It’s ideal to have melons early in the day and not after eating something heavy.
Peaches remove old deep-seated poisons, debris and putrefied food in your small intestinal tract, which helps your liver get better.
Oranges and tangerines provide a wealth of calcium and vitamin C that the liver can use since it’s combined with the glucose in the fruit.
Pitaya, which is also called dragon fruit is a liver rejuvenator. It cleanses poisons from the organ. You can often find this red-fleshed food in the freezer department.
Raw honey contains a combination of the sugars that the liver needs along with the minerals, vitamins and nutrients that restore the liver.
Spinach has mineral salts and nutrients that help the liver. It also helps the liver receive vitamin B12 better.
Tomatoes harness critical phytochemicals, micronutrients, vitamins and minerals that support the liver. The fruit acid in a tomato also helps the gallbladder eliminate some of the sludge that can sit in the bottom of the gallbladder. They also dissolve gallstones.
Wild blueberries have pigments that reverse damage to the liver.
Supplements To Support You
There’s also specific supplements that are helpful for the liver to heal, cleanse and strengthen. When it comes to supplements there’s a huge range in quality and they’re not all created equal. I have listed the brands I like on my preferred supplements page on my website to help you source the highest quality products.
Here’s a few of the supplements that support the liver with some of the ways they help. You can find a full list of them along with exactly how they help the liver in Liver Rescue. I also include suggested dosages for you to consider for many health conditions.
5-MTHF helps the liver receive B12.
Ashwagandha is good for the liver and it strengthens the adrenal glands.
Barley grass juice powder contains phytonutrients that feed an undernourished liver while allowing it to detoxify
B12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin is critical for your liver and almost everyone is deficient in it. Even when blood tests show B12 levels are normal, you can still be deficient.
Burdock root is very medicinal for the liver and it purges it on a deep level. You can find burdock root in the grocery store and consider juicing it or making a tea with it.
Cat’s claw kills off pathogens and viruses that are in the liver.
CoQ10 is a great antioxidant for the liver.
Goldenseal kills pathogens, including strep
Hibiscus contains antisine compounds, which is what gives it the red color, which helps bring the liver back to life.
Lemon balm kills pathogens and bacteria. It also calms the liver and the nerves, so that your liver can relax enough to be cleansed.
Licorice root tea.
Spirulina pulls out toxic heavy metals that sit inside the liver and create a wealth of issues.
Vitamin C strengthens all levels of the liver’s personalized immune system. The liver uses vitamin C in all of its over 2,000 chemical functions.
Zinc plays a critical role in all 2,000 of the liver’s chemical functions.
In addition to bringing more of these food and supplements into your life, I also encourage you to read Liver Rescue. Consider doing the Liver Rescue 3:6:9 cleanse and Liver Rescue Mornings.

1. Critical for chronic acid reflux
Acid reflux means 3 things are happening: low hydrochloric acid production, unproductive bacteria such as strep and e. Coli & a weakened liver. Celery juice helps improve these.
2. Fights autoimmune disease
Pathogens are the true cause of the inflammation that’s mistakenly considered autoimmune. Celery juice’s undiscovered sodium cluster salts can break down & flush out these pathogens.
3. Helps restore adrenals
The undiscovered sodium cluster salts in celery juice help keep your adrenals stable & functioning.
4. Contains undiscovered sodium cluster salts that reverse illness
Celery juice’s undiscovered sodium cluster salts act together as an antiseptic. When they make contact with viruses & bacteria—troublemakers responsible for chronic illness—the salts begin to break down the pathogens’ cell membranes, eventually destroying them.
5. Neutralizes & flushes toxins out of the liver
Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts bind onto neurotoxins, dermatoxins, & other viral waste, as well as troublemakers, & draw them out of the liver.
6. Helps eradicate strep bacteria
Strep is responsible for many conditions, like acne, UTIs, SIBO, yeast infections, & more. Celery juice helps destroy strep.
7. Kills Epstein-Barr & Shingles viruses
The white blood cells of the liver’s personalized immune system add the cluster salts to their cell membrane coatings, making them toxic to viruses.
8. Brings down toxic liver heat
Celery juice purges a sluggish liver while bringing down liver heat.
9. Powerful weapon against SIBO & bloating
Celery juice is a powerful stomach acid replenisher so that gastric juices can kill strep, which causes SIBO. It also breaks down rotting protein & rancid fats in the stomach & small intestinal tract, helping bloating.
10. Repairs hydrochloric acid & liver bile production
Celery juice strengthens hydrochloric acid & bile production & strengthens the liver, which then allows for better bile production.
