Get the incredible healing benefits of aloe vera in this sweet grape slushy. Refreshing and delicious, this slushy makes a wonderful light breakfast or snack. If you suffer with constipation, you might find the combination of grapes and aloe vera in this drink bring you welcome relief!
Grapes contain high amounts of powerful antioxidants known as bioflavonoids, resveratrol, and anthocyanins. These phytochemicals are anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-aging, and anti-cancerous and provide protection against anemia, degenerative nerve diseases, heart disease, viral and fungal infections, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune disorders, and all forms of cancer. Grapes can also help provide relief from asthma, migraines, constipation, gastritis, chronic acidosis, indigestion, kidney disorders, fatigue, and vision problems.
Fresh aloe leaf gel binds onto toxic debris in the intestinal tract and carries it out of the colon during elimination. Aloe also reduces poisons and toxins in the intestinal tract so that they don’t travel up to the liver. It expels and diminishes ammonia inside the intestinal tract that otherwise seeps into the liver when food is putrefying due to low hydrochloric acid and bile production.
Aloe also works wonders for assimilation, circulation, and elimination. It is known to purify the blood, reduce inflammation, ease arthritis pain, prevent kidney stones, lower high cholesterol, prevent Candida, boost physical endurance, benefit cardiovascular health, and protect the body from oxidative stress. Aloe soothes ulcers, hemorrhoids, gastritis, diverticulitis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive disorders. Aloe provides recovery from fatigue and aids in muscle function as well as optimal utilization of several vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. It’s alkaline nature, helps to soothe acidosis and alkalinize the whole body.
Aloe Grape Slushy
2"-4" fresh aloe leaf gel
2 cups frozen seedless black or purple grapes

Whether you like to use tortillas to make wraps, tacos, pizzas, quesadillas, sandwiches, nachos or any other favorite meal, a good tortilla recipe is the foundation. But a tortilla recipe without corn or wheat can be hard to find. In this recipe, the humble potato is the star along with cassava and chickpea flour. The result is tasty and flexible tortillas you can make again and again.
Potatoes aren’t only versatile, they’re also high in potassium and rich in vitamin B6, as well as a fantastic source of amino acids, especially lysine in its bioactive form. Lysine is a powerful weapon against cancers, liver disease, inflammation, and the viruses such as Epstein-Barr and shingles that are behind rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, autoimmune disease, and more. Potatoes will be your allies if you’re looking to fight any chronic illness—to fend off liver disease, strengthen your kidneys, soothe your nerves and digestive tract, and reverse Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, or peptic ulcers.
2-3 medium-sized potatoes, peeled and diced (yields 1 cups mashed)
1 1/2 cup cassava flour, more if needed
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp - 1/4 cup warm water, if needed
1 tsp dried herbs (oregano, thyme, basil, rosemary)
Place the potatoes in steamer. Cover with lid and steam for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool completely.
Place the potatoes in a food processor and blend until smooth. The mixture will be quite sticky. Measure out 1 cup of potato mash and leave the rest for another recipe.
Add the cup of mash to a large bowl with the cassava flour, chickpea flour, sea salt and herbs. Using a potato masher, mash until you get a crumbly mixture. Set the potato masher aside and working with your hands, add water a tablespoon at a time while kneading. Depending on the moisture content of the flours and potato mash you may not need to add any water at all.
Knead the dough until it is smooth and uniform, about 3-5 minutes. The dough must not be sticky at all - if it is, add more cassava flour. When ready, cut the dough into 4 even pieces.
Roll out each piece between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/8 inch thick. Keep the remaining pieces in plastic wrap so that they don’t dry out. Remove the top sheet and place the lid of a saucepan (7 inches in diameter) on top. Circle around the lid with a knife to create a tortilla shape. Remove the excess dough.
Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Flip the tortilla onto the pan and carefully remove the parchment paper right away. If you leave it for too long the paper might stick to the dough.
Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Repeat with rest of the dough. Best kept at room temperature in an air-tight container.
Makes 4-5 medium-sized tortillas

If you’ve struggled with your weight, you may have been told it’s because you have a slow metabolism so you gain unwanted weight easily. Or perhaps you’ve struggled to keep weight on and been told it’s because your metabolism is “too fast”. None of this is true. When it comes to weight issues, you might be surprised to learn that metabolism actually isn’t the problem. Placing the blame on metabolism has distracted us from understanding what’s really going on.
I know it might sound contrary to everything you’ve been told, but read on to learn the true cause of weight issues. This is advanced healing information that will put your health and healing back in your hands.
First, let’s begin with what metabolism is in the first place. The discovery of metabolism is simply the finding that we consume food, which provides energy that makes our bodies run and keeps us alive. That’s it. That process is metabolism. Blaming faulty metabolism for weight issues is incorrect and disempowering. There are deeper reasons people struggle with weight and it’s these deeper reasons that are behind why one person can eat healthy and exercise and still gain weight and someone else can eat processed food for most meals and stay thin.
Your Best Ally for Healthy Weight: Your Liver
The true cause of what’s deemed “slow metabolism” is actually a sluggish, stagnant, toxic liver. I describe how this develops in Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease. Once you understand what’s really causing weight problems, and liver problems, you’ll see that the focus on metabolism is misinformation.
When someone struggles with excess weight, it’s a great burden, physically and emotionally. Sadly, weight is judged and viewed in such a negative way in this world. People with extra weight may not be taken seriously. They may be viewed by others as lazy or incapable of taking care of themselves and their families. They may even get made fun of. All of this is heartbreaking and wrong. Your weight has nothing to do with your soul. It has nothing to do with who you are as a person. But struggles with weight certainly do have an impact on quality of life, and that’s why it’s important to get to the root cause and the real answers.
In Liver Rescue, I refer to the troublemakers that lead to a sluggish and toxic liver (which eventually leads to weight issues), including:
* Viruses and bacteria, such as Epstein-Barr virus, herpes, streptococcus and the dozens of varieties within different pathogenic families. In addition to causing damage on their own, viruses and bacteria create even more harm when they feed on their favorite foods such as heavy metals; toxins; and foods like eggs, gluten and dairy. Medical research and science are not yet aware that viruses feed at all, or what they feed on. You can read all about this topic in Liver Rescue and Thyroid Healing, along with a list of which foods to avoid for your health and to avoid feeding pathogens inside your body. The pathogens’ eating and waste processes create harmful byproducts and debris that sit inside your liver or elsewhere in your body. When people have a positive or elevated inflammatory marker, C-Reactive Protein (CRP) level, antinuclear antibody (ANA) test, homocysteine level or MTHFR mutation test, it’s caused by these viral byproducts, although you don’t have to test positive for any of these to have viral debris inside your body. Almost everyone today is living with viruses they are unaware of.
* Toxic heavy metals, such as copper, mercury, aluminum, lead, nickel, cadmium, barium and arsenic take up residence in the liver and throughout the body and cause or contribute to all kinds of health conditions and symptoms.
* Synthetic chemicals, including pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides; conventional cleaning products and detergents; colognes, perfumes, scented candles and air fresheners; and petrochemicals, gasoline fumes, solvents and plastics. These toxins bog down the liver further.
* Toxic hormones, such as adrenaline, which is released when we’re under stress, and which is extremely corrosive to our bodies and livers adds further burden to the liver.
These are just some of the factors that lead to a sluggish liver, which in turn leads to the eventual weight issues discussed.
The Path to Healing
Celery juice is one of your healing tools for correcting weight issues. Celery is an herb (not a vegetable) that when juiced and consumed on an empty stomach every morning disarms (aim fo 16 ounces or more) and flushes out toxins. It also disperses fat cells that attach to and surround toxins. I describe how this miraculous herbal tonic works in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide and exactly how to consume it to receive its many healing benefits. Celery juice powerfully cleans, strengthens and revives the liver.
When someone is experiencing unwanted weight gain it means their liver has been collecting and storing an abundance of fat cells. And that happens because the liver has been beaten down and burdened by toxins and pathogens (often combined with a diet that’s too high in fat, as almost everybody is eating too much fat, even though they don’t realize it). Once the liver is maxed out with fat cells, weight starts to show up on the body.
If you feel like you’re always battling a pound or two, or you’re always in the gym but you can’t knock off the extra weight, it’s likely because your liver is burdened, filled with fat, toxins and viruses. Your liver—not metabolism—is responsible for weight issues throughout the body. Thankfully, with the information provided here you can support your liver so it can heal and weight can regulate.
People who deal with weight issues are also often dealing with lymphatic issues. That’s because when the liver gets overloaded and sluggish, then the blood and lymphatic system get clogged up too. Fortunately, celery juice not only cleans up the liver, but also the blood, the lymphatic system and every other part of the body and brain.
The healing chemical compounds in celery juice drop down into the digestive system, absorb into the intestinal tract walls, go through the hepatic portal vein and then enter the liver. The celery juice cleans and heals along this pathway until it arrives at the liver like a medicinal infusion, helping the liver and the entire body to function and heal. Unknown to research and science, the liver performs more than 2,000 chemical functions. See Liver Rescue to learn more about this incredible organ and how to care for it. The liver’s role in our health is paramount—and severely misunderstood and under-appreciated. In truth, a large part of how the liver works is a complete mystery to medical research and science, and certainly how an overburdened liver is responsible for mystery weight problems.
Remember, your liver is a nesting place for the troublemakers I mentioned earlier and those listed in Liver Rescue. And celery juice, as I describe in Medical Medium Celery Juice, contains a subgroup of sodium I call “sodium cluster salts” that strip down the outer membrane of viral cells, breaking them down and flushing them out of the body. Those cluster salts also bind onto viral debris, helping the body flush those out as well. Celery juice plays a similar role when it comes to toxic heavy metals and chemicals. Celery juice’s compounds flow through the bloodstream, disarming the destructive charge of toxins and moving them out of the body. These toxins and poisons in the body trigger unseen allergic reactions, which trigger the adrenals and can lead to higher heart rate, especially in people who experience unwelcome mystery weight loss. They also slow the liver’s ability to perform its critical functions.
Another property of celery juice is it breaks down and helps dissolve fat cells that are stored in the liver, allowing the fat cells to be urinated out and eliminated from the body. This is an important distinction to make: fat cells are broken down and eliminated and that’s how weight loss occurs. It does not occur from fat being “burned” like the metabolism theory implies, which you now know is incorrect. Celery juice is also loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that feed and strengthen the liver. It’s a medicinal elixir that allows your liver—and the rest of your body and brain—to function at its best. As the celery juice cleans up the liver, excess weight will begin to shed too.
If you’re someone who is underweight or deals with unwanted weight loss, you’ll experience the benefits from celery juice too. Unwanted, mystery weight loss is usually the result of a chronic, low-grade viral infection, such as EBV, inside the liver, setting off the body’s alarm system, essentially creating an allergic reaction that prompts the adrenals to release consistently high levels of adrenaline. Basically, the adrenaline acts as an amphetamine. Often, mystery weight loss doesn’t last forever, because eventually the liver becomes so tired, sluggish, and exhausted from fielding mass amounts of adrenaline that the situation flips, and people start gaining weight instead, even if it’s ten years later. The beauty of celery juice is that it’s a great balancer, bringing life back to your liver and helping your body to return to a healthy weight for you.
If you’re experiencing weight issues of any kind (or if you simply want to take preventative action for your overall health), consider these tips:
* Drink 16 ounces (or more) of pure celery juice daily on an empty stomach every morning. Remember this is not a meal replacement. Rather, it’s a medicinal herbal tonic. You can eat breakfast 30 minutes after you’ve finished your celery juice.
* Drink the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie daily to remove the toxic heavy metal load in your body.
* Lower your fat and protein intake to give your liver a break from the job of constantly processing them. If you eat a plant based diet, this means lowering your oils, nuts and seeds.
* Avoid eggs; gluten; and milk, cheese, butter, yogurt, kefir and any other dairy products because these foods feed the pathogens that contribute to a sluggish liver.
* Try the Liver Rescue 3:6:9 Cleanse in Liver Rescue and incorporate the Liver Rescue Mornings and other healing guidance in the book as much as possible.
Your life is precious. These are your years, your months, your days. I am here to give you answers to your symptoms and conditions, including weight issues, and the information on how to heal so you can start taking back control of your life and your health. Now you know that weight issues aren’t because of your metabolism or genetics or even aging. They’re because of a sick liver that needs your attention. You have the power to care for your liver and achieve a healthy weight. You deserve to heal.

Women's reproductive health problems have become rampant. Nine out of 10 women have at least one of these issues: hormone imbalance, endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids, cysts, breast density, HPV, infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, or another. Worse, 10 out of 10 women have one of these hormonal or reproductive issues brewing—a problem is developing that will show up in time.
Somehow, we’ve come to think this is normal and that these problems are just part of being a woman. I can assure you this is not the case—it isn’t something any woman should have to live with or consider normal. As I explain in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, celery juice is truly a healing weapon for all these women’s health challenges.
For decades, the medical system has blamed hormones for women’s suffering, as though feeling terrible is simply part of being female. This hormone blame game goes back to the 1950s and 1960s when women started experiencing increasing health problems, and health professionals either concluded it was “just hormones” or that these women were crazy, bored or lazy.
This is all negligent and inaccurate, but we’ve been trained to believe hormones (and now genes too) are the cause of everything. This belief is so disempowering. I made women's reproductive issues a major part of Medical Medium Celery Juice, which describes the unknown true causes of almost 200 different symptoms and conditions, to bring truth to this area of health. The health of the adrenals also play a role in the reproductive system because the adrenals produce a majority of the reproductive hormones, including estrogen and progesterone. Thyroid health is often also lumped in with hormonal health, which is why I am addressing it briefly here also. (I talk about thyroid health more in Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr.)
What’s really causing women’s reproductive symptoms and conditions are viruses, bacteria, toxic heavy metals, toxic hormones, industrial chemicals and other poisons. The reproductive system collects a tremendous amount of these toxins, which have become prolific since the Industrial Revolution. These pathogens and toxins are passed down through our bloodlines and we also contract them and are exposed to them in our day-to-day lives.
Celery Juice and Reproductive Health
Celery juice is incredible for the reproductive system because it protects against pathogens and toxins. Celery juice has an incredible cleaning power; it binds onto, breaks down, neutralizes and escorts viruses, bacteria, toxic heavy metals, contaminants, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, petrochemicals and the toxic hormones and estrogens that come from foods, plastics and chemicals. Celery juice contains a living water that’s filled with undiscovered cluster salts, trace minerals and phytochemicals that flush out these troublemakers. You can read all about this water and how it supports healing in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Celery juice also nourishes and feeds the reproductive system on all levels. It feeds the breast ducts, uterus, and ovaries. It helps restore cells and healthy hormones by providing nutrients and trace minerals to reproductive organs and glands.
As I describe in Medical Medium Celery Juice, there are undiscovered plant hormones in celery juice that help stabilize hormones in women. Celery juice also has anti-tumor and anti-adhesion properties.
Celery juice hydrates the reproductive system, which is a major factor in its overall health and function. We eat so much salt in our culture that we essentially pickle the reproductive system and suck the water right out of it.
This juice does wonders for the reproductive and hormonal systems, but the benefits go deeper yet. With regular use, celery juice cleanses and frees the liver over time. The juice’s travel velocity and saturation rate is unmatched by any other food or herb on the planet, and it helps release poisons and toxins that have accumulated in the body and especially in the liver.
How Your Liver is Connected to Your Reproductive and Hormonal Health
I share in Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease how the liver’s health sets the foundation for the rest of the body’s health. When the liver is too overwhelmed with pathogens and toxins, and when we eat a diet high in fat that further bogs the body down, the liver can’t do its job filtering and cleaning and detoxifying. Over a period of years, this critical organ becomes sluggish, fatty, lazy and saturated. That’s when the poisons end up in our bloodstream, our organs and our tissues.
If you can do only one thing from the Medical Medium information, do celery juice. Read Medical Medium Celery Juice to find out how to use it correctly in order to get its benefits. There’s a very important and specific way to consume it that I explain in the book. Here’s how this herbal medicine (yes, celery is an herb) helps women’s health issues:
Breast density. When toxins build up in breast tissue, they create density and cause the connective tissue to lose elasticity and viscosity. When the liver has already reached its maximum capacity of toxins, the lymphatic system becomes a secondary filtration system. The breast is a lymph system. When poisons and toxic heavy metals start to accumulate there, saturation happens quickly, and breast tissue becomes dense.
In addition to toxins, another leading contributor to breast density is the calcium in dairy products. This form of calcium is not a healthy calcium. It’s an aggressive calcium. It becomes fuel for pathogens and bugs, and it’s antagonistic to women’s health. I explain why it’s so important to remove dairy from the diet when trying to heal or look after your health in Thyroid Healing.
Dehydration of breast tissue is another cause of breast density. The toxins that have accumulated in the tissue keep cells from being revitalized. Then if there’s no living water (which is present in abundance in celery juice) to flush out the tissue and keep it healthy and hydrated, more problems mount. In addition to celery juice, you can use other living drinks at different times to stay hydrated, such as lemon or lime water, cucumber juice, melon juice, and fresh squeezed orange juice. Go ahead and add some raw honey to your lemon or lime water if you’d like—honey is antiviral and antipathogenic.
The Epstein Barr virus is responsible for some of the more advanced breast conditions and issues, including some forms of breast cancer. Here again, celery juice comes to the rescue by breaking down the virus over time and flushing it out of your body.
Cysts. Reproductive cysts can develop from a range of toxins, including heavy metals, pesticides, funcidies, herbicides, and viruses like Epstein-Barr. These cysts can be benign or cancerous, depending on the toxins you have and how aggressive the variety of Epstein-Barr (there are more than 60 varieties—the virus has mutated, and some versions are quite old while others are brand new).
Many cysts are lymphatic vessel scar tissue surrounding the reproductive system that became inflamed and hardened, and maybe even calcified, due to viral infection.
Cysts tend to thrive energetically around toxins and around toxic unhealthy cells. You’ll want to follow the “no foods” lists from the Medical Medium books to ensure you’re not supporting the growth of cysts and other health problems, and also try some of the supplements I suggest to support your healing.
Celery juice prevents cysts from thriving and expanding. The sodium cluster salts in celery juice have a saturation rate that allows them to enter hardened cystic material. When they enter, they can find the pathogens within and loosen up and break it down. Celery juice also disperses the scar tissue that can otherwise become keloids and adhesions. It provides further support by feeding and nourishing the healthy cells around the cysts, making those cells stronger so they can stop the growth of cysts that may be growing nearby.
Endometriosis. Celery juice provides undiscovered phytochemical compound inhibitors that stop abnormal tissue growth. And endometriosis is abnormal tissue cells that are growing where they’re not supposed to be growing—spreading and clinging to the bladder, the colon, the pelvic cavity and elsewhere in the body. The inhibitors inside celery juice push back on endometrial tissue that’s trying to develop outside the uterus.
The reason these abnormal cells are growing is because of toxins. Unhealthy cells develop in part because we’re constantly exposed to unhealthy, toxic foreign hormones that are in our food, water and many everyday consumer products. These hormones are in pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and plastics.
If you’re dealing with endometriosis or other women’s health issues, it’s especially important to clean up your household to whatever extent is possible. Get rid of conventional cleaning products and laundry detergents. Stop using conventional perfumes, air fresheners and candles. Note that many shoe and clothing brands spray their products with fungicides—another toxin to avoid.
Fibroids. Fibroids in the uterus have different causes, but unknown to medical research and science, the two main causes are Epstein-Barr virus and streptococcus bacteria. When a virus is the offender, the fibroid has a rounder shape. When bacteria is to blame, it looks like scar tissue or an adhesion and it takes on more of a cashew shape.
In Medical Medium Celery Juice I explain how the sodium cluster salts in celery juice seek out and destroy the viruses and bacteria that are responsible for pathogenic growth and fibroid growth. Celery juice also helps shrink fibroids.
If you have fibroids, it’s important to stay completely away from milk, cheese and butter. If you eat animal proteins, be sure it’s very clean and 100 percent grass-fed. Also, avoid pork and bacon, which are high in fat and bog down the immune system. If you’re plant-based, don’t overdo the oils and nuts—they’re also high in fat. Stay away from corn, safflower oil and cottonseed oil.
PCOS. This condition is 100 percent due to Epstein-Barr, which causes fluid-filled cysts and other ovarian injuries. The cluster salts in celery juice break down the Epstein-Barr and lower your viral load.
This truth is not recognized because people get sidetracked focusing on hormones and genes. Certainly genes are amazing in so many ways and science is trying to crack their codes and mysteries, but when it comes to chronic illness, blaming genetics is keeping people distracted. Nobody wants to look into the true cause—Epstein-Barr virus—because it would upset the industries. If the virus was tagged and people actually looked into it, they’d find that the virus is patented and has a history and a serial number. They’d realize the virus goes back to labs in the 1920s and ‘30s and that the virus got out and mutated and is creating all kinds of health problems.
With PCOS it’s critical to stay away from eggs. Unfortunately, many well-meaning health professionals give women with PCOS harmful dietary advice, including to eat a lot of eggs. The eggs help feed the virus that’s responsible for PCOS plus other pathogens, and so these women end up with a bogged down liver and even more cysts. Then due to the overwhelmed liver they gain weight, and the industry blames the PCOS for the weight gain. To understand how a sluggish and overburdened liver is the true cause of weight gain, among many other health problems, read Liver Rescue.
HPV. This virus is similar to other viruses in the herpetic family, which includes Epstein-Barr and shingles, both of which create many health issues. Sodium cluster salts in celery break down the outer membranes of the HPV virus. If you drink celery juice daily for two or three years solid you will knock down the virus, and do a whole lot of other good for your health at the same time. HPV has no immunity to celery juice.
What doctors think are cells that have been compromised due to HPV that can then lead to cancer is actually cancer caused by Epstein-Barr virus. With weapons like celery juice and the Medical Medium books you can fight these viruses and protect yourself. I share how cancers develop and how celery juice helps in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Hypothyroid and hyperthyroid. Once again, Epstein-Barr virus is the culprit. It’s important to know that a virus is at the root of these illnesses, it is not your immune system attacking itself, as the autoimmune theory holds. Learn more about what’s really happening in so-called autoimmune disease in Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr.
Celery juice gets right into the thyroid and kills off Epstein-Barr virus and other pathogens. It’s not going to do it in one glass though, so you need to remain committed to a daily regimen for months and sometimes for a few years. It’s important to drink it in the specific way I share in Medical Medium Celery Juice to receive its benefits.
Menopause symptoms. These result from years of the liver getting sluggish and overloaded with toxins. Hot flashes, night sweats, adrenal fatigue, hormonal imbalances, irritability, anxiety, depression, fatigue, loss of libido and more all occur when the liver has become overburdened with viruses and toxins. It takes decades for this to occur, which is why these symptoms occur for women in their late 30s, 40s or as late as their 50s, and then the symptoms are mistakenly identified as early menopause or perimenopause.
Think about what happens if you had a virus or bacteria in the past. Where does all that byproduct and debris go? Unless your liver is in great shape and you’re doing all the right things (drinking celery juice; eating a clean, low-fat diet; eating primarily fruits, leafy greens and vegetables; avoiding problematic foods); and take the right supplements, these viruses and bacteria will still be causing trouble inside the body, even if you don’t feel the resulting health challenges yet.
For many individuals, menopause symptoms can be arrested with celery juice alone. It brings back and revitalizes the liver, lowers the viral load and helps women recover. The sodium cluster salts restore the adrenals so they’re more balanced and can produce better hormones. (Remember, the adrenals produce many hormones, including reproductive hormones).
In summary, if you’re dealing with hormonal and reproductive health issues, follow these tips:
* Drink 16 ounces of pure celery juice every morning on an empty stomach.
* Read Medical Medium Celery Juice for more information and to learn how it helps hundreds of other conditions.
* Strictly avoid eggs if you are experiencing any sort of reproductive problem, along with dairy. Also pork, corn, gluten, soy and canola oil. You can read why in the Medical Medium books.
* Read the Medical Medium books to learn more about what foods to eat, as well as what supplements and herbs to incorporate. Liver Rescue includes a fantastic 9 day cleanse to help you move forward with healing along with supplement dosages you can consider for various health conditions.
Now that you know what’s behind these health problems and some simple but powerful healing steps, you can start moving forward. Immerse yourself in the Medical Medium books for more healing information and guidance on how to best support yourself to heal.

Toxic heavy metals can cause or play a role in many different chronic illnesses and symptoms, including migraines, depression, anxiety, memory loss, brain fog, ADHD, dizziness, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, autoimmune disease, eczema, psoriasis, vitiligo, Parkinson's and more.
Celery juice is a potent tonic that helps disarm the toxic metals so your body can heal, as I describe in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide. The book explains the root causes—and solutions—for about 200 symptoms and conditions. This is all advanced healing information; medical research and science aren’t aware that toxic heavy metals (and pathogens, which feed off these toxic heavy metals and other toxins plus some of the foods people commonly eat) are to blame for so many chronic illnesses.
Increasing numbers of people, and at younger ages, are getting sicker than ever before. Even young adults, teenagers and children are experiencing all kinds of neurological and physical problems as toxic heavy metals build up in their bodies, brains, livers, intestinal tract and reproductive systems.
How We Accumulate Toxic Heavy Metals
These metals are so minuscule they’re smaller than microscopic, and even smaller than nanoscopic. We might not be able to see these culprits, but they’re definitely infiltrating our bodies and causing incredible harm. Many times we are born with them already in us. Medical communities don’t yet have the information or tools needed to find or accurately test for toxic heavy metals and don’t yet know the best way to remove them.
Metals accumulate in our bodies in a range of ways, which I outline in more detail in Medical Medium Celery Juice:
Medications: They contain various types of toxins, often including copper, aluminum and mercury.
Fluoride: This is an aluminum byproduct, a neurotoxin. It’s highly toxic to the liver, causing liver cell damage. We absorb fluoride from childhood fluoride treatments, public water that’s treated with fluoride and toothpaste that contains it.
Water: If you have your tap water tested, you’ll find that it contains multiple metals, including lead and arsenic. The EPA has deemed small amounts as safe, so the levels in public water supplies are considered safe. Unfortunately, the standard allowed in the water we drink and bathe with is anything but safe.
Air: The air we breathe, polluted by industry, contains toxic heavy metals as well.
Aluminum in cans, foil, baking and sticks of gum: The metal can leach off the product and into your body.
Pots and pans: Using aluminum or copper cookware, or even stainless steel pots and pans can mean you get a shaving of metal along with your meal. I’ve seen this a lot in restaurants, where pots and pans have been scraped to the bone with metal utensils, which means shards of metal have been inadvertently added to meals. I recommend using ceramic cookware whenever possible at home. If you use stainless steel or another metal-based cookware, do your best to avoid scraping your pots and pans.
Old metal fillings: For years the industry fought to protect these metal fillings and insisted the mercury was safe. This is an example of how something people herald as safe can be proven dangerous later. They finally switched to ceramic, but many people still have the old fillings. If you have multiple mercury fillings, I don’t recommend having them all removed at once. You can read more about this and understand why in Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal.
Copper pipes: In any home you live or stay in, copper from pipes can leach into the drinking and bathing water.
Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides: These are laden with toxic copper. Everyone has acquired some toxic metals from these commonplace products.
Inherited mercury quicksilver: When people went to the doctor in the 1700s and 1800s, they were pretty much always given quicksilver, regardless of what their health issue was. The tonic was made by heating mercury to create a liquid patients could drink. Yes, believe it or not, people were told to drink mercury for their health!
By the mid 1800s the medical establishment was collapsing and conventional doctors were called quacks because patients were going mad, they were going insane due to the quicksilver. By the turn of the century, people started turning away from those doctors and turning toward herbalists, chiropractors, naturopaths and other healers. The conventional doctors, the “quacks,” as they become known, had to advertise that they no longer used quicksilver in order to eventually get patients back.
The pervasive use of quicksilver had already done plenty of damage, however, and the consequences continue. Toxic heavy metals, including mercury, is passed down intergenerationally. In other words, our forefathers “medicinal tonic” is still poisoning us and the new generations being born today.
These are just some of the ways we are exposed to, inherit and absorb toxic heavy metals. There are more ways we accumulate them, and not just heavy metals but other toxins too. I include an exhaustive list of these troublemakers in Medical Medium 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 understand how to limit your exposure and protect yourself and your loved ones when possible.
Celery Juice Disarms Toxic Metals
With toxic heavy metals that have been passed down through our bloodlines from thousands of years ago in our bodies plus the metals we’re exposed to on a daily basis, it’s critical to focus on removing these metals safely from the body and brain. Celery juice is a powerful tool to help you do so. You see, toxic heavy metals have a destructive charge to them, which causes them to damage cells throughout your body, including cells in your brain and liver.
Fortunately, celery juice contains something called sodium cluster salts, though this is unknown to research and science. The special properties of these salts diffuse the charge from metals like copper, mercury, aluminum, nickel, cadmium, barium, arsenic and more. The cluster salts render these toxins inactive and make them less aggressive.
Celery juice also contains powerful antioxidants. Those antioxidants separate fatty deposits—which cling to metals like suction cups—from toxic heavy metals. This separation is huge for our health because when fats cling to metals, it causes the metals to oxidize, rust and decay. Metals on their own are a poison, but when they oxidize they can then rupture, expand, change shape or run together. The discharge that’s created when metals oxidize is a corrosive runoff that’s damaging to nearby tissue.
People don’t know toxic heavy metals are rusting and rotting in our brains and bodies and causing all kinds of neurological problems, including short-term and long-term memory loss. The most common metals in the brain are mercury and aluminum, but close runners up include copper, nickel, lead and arsenic. Every individual carries different levels and different combinations of metals.
And remember how these metals carry a destructive charge within the body? When the metals cross paths and interact it can cause anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, mania and schizophrenia. People end up, understandably, needing medications for mood disorders. Yet unfortunately, these medications contain metals too. That doesn’t mean medications shouldn't be used; they can be life-saving in some circumstances. But they are often overused too and that can contribute to the problem.
The Five Heavy Metal Detox Foods
Celery juice is one part of the equation for helping to remove toxic heavy metals. As you may already know from my books and healing information, it's critical to consume the five foods that work synergistically to remove toxic heavy metals daily: fresh cilantro, wild blueberries (or wild blueberry powder), Atlantic dulse, barley grass juice powder and spirulina. You can combine them into the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie, which tastes delicious and offers a simple and easy way to consume them every day. Or you can eat them in another way you like over the day. The key is to consume all five foods in a 24 hour period, and do that every day. It takes time for toxic heavy metals to leave the body and we are exposed to new ones all the time, so keep up with it as much as you can. To understand more about how these five foods work together to remove metals, you can read my Heavy Metal Detox blog post.
The Damaging Duo of Fat and Metals
The destructive combination of fatty deposits and toxic heavy metals has become prolific in our bodies because of current food trends that favor diets that include a lot of fat. Fat makes metals even more dangerous in our bodies. These metals can cause severe mental and physical degeneration, including ALS, Alzheimers and Parkinson's.
There are people on clean paleo diets and people on clean plant-based diets, people who do animal products and people who don’t. And of course there’s many people who eat a Standard American Diet (SAD) with plenty of high fat foods. People in all camps are suffering with chronic illness and mystery symptoms. This is in part because all these diets are still too high in fat. A diet rich in protein for instance will also be rich in fat, and when it comes to healing chronic illness and symptoms, that’s not a good thing. There’s only a tiny minority of people who follow a truly low fat diet. If you have been reading and applying the Medical Medium book series information diligently for a while now, you might be one of the very few who do.
People see some improvement when they move from a Standard American Diet to anything else, including a keto diet, which is very high in fat, because any diet that removes processed foods, fried foods, greasy fast foods, bad sugars and so on. Eliminating bad fats and moving to healthier fats, along with some processed sugars and chemicals that are in a Standard American Diet is a step in the right direction and it can therefore bring some results. But it’s not nearly enough to reverse chronic illness and symptoms long term or to prevent more symptoms and conditions from eventually developing in the future, especially when the continued high fat intake is combined with the toxic modern world we live in.
A Favored Food of Pathogens
Another problem with toxic heavy metals is that both feed pathogens. Those bugs—viruses and bacteria such as shingles, Epstein-Barr, streptococcus and many more—are a major cause of chronic illness, including autoimmune diseases. I explain the true cause of these conditions in Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr. It’s still unknown to research and science, but pathogens are responsible for a wide range of illnesses, including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, thyroid conditions, eczema, acne and MS. Again, check out Medical Medium Celery Juice for the causes and cures for about 200 conditions.
The Cleansing Power of Celery Juice
We don’t have to keep suffering emotionally, physically and mentally because of toxic heavy metals. Celery juice not only disarms the metals, but it also provides the best electrolyte source on the planet. Nothing can surpass its unique blend of trace minerals, which offer all the elements needed by your neurotransmitters (and neurotransmitters play a huge role in brain and body function and mood). Celery juice cleanses your neurotransmitters and hydrates them, rejuvenating them and making them more useful. On top of that, celery juice protects your neurons from toxic heavy metal runoff.
Check out Medical Medium Celery Juice for more detail, and get started with these steps to detoxify metals:
* Drink 16 ounces of pure celery juice every morning on an empty stomach. Wait 15 to 30 minutes before eating breakfast.
* Drink the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie every day. This is a critical step for removing toxic heavy metals also. It contains the five essential foods that work together synergistically to safely remove heavy metals from the body and brain.
* Lower your fat intake, whether animal or plant based, so your body can better disarm and remove toxic heavy metals. I give specific instructions for how to do this in Liver Rescue. Instead, increase your intake of fruits, leafy greens, and vegetables like sweet potatoes, potatoes, winter squashes, asparagus and artichokes. Check out the recipes in my books for inspiration.
* Eliminate eggs. No matter how healthy they are or how well raised the animal is, eggs will make it hard for your body to detoxify metals. Eggs also feed pathogens, which, in partnership with toxic heavy metals, are the cause of most chronic illnesses and symptoms.
* To further clean out your liver and body, try the Medical Medium Liver 3:6:9 Cleanse, as outlined in Liver Rescue also.
* Consider giving yourself additional heavy metal detox support by using an infrared sauna regularly if it feels right for you.
I hope you will try these steps for removing metals, because you deserve to heal and protect yourself. Toxic heavy metals are responsible for so many problems, but you can get them out. I believe in you, and I stand behind you on your healing journey. Take it one step at a time.

Neurological conditions like Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple sclerosis can create as much fear and despair as they do physical suffering. But once you understand that the true cause of these illnesses is actually a virus, and once you learn how to systematically eliminate that pathogen, you’ll be empowered to take your health back into your hands. Medical research and science aren;t yet aware that it’s viruses behind autoimmune conditions, but here I’ll share with you what’s really happening inside the body. For an in-depth explanation of what I call the “Autoimmune Confusion”, read my chapter on this topic in Medical Medium Thyroid Healing: The Truth behind Hashimoto's, Graves', Insomnia, Hypothyroidism, Thyroid Nodules & Epstein-Barr.
Celery juice is a miraculous herbal elixir, and it’s a powerful tool for anyone experiencing neurological and autoimmune issues. In Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, I explain how the medicinal properties of celery juice heal neurological conditions and dozens of other autoimmune diseases.
Debunking a False and Damaging Theory
The entire autoimmune theory is based on a false premise that your body is attacking itself. This idea arose back around the 1950s after people started pouring into their doctors offices out of nowhere. Decades ago, I talked to a doctor who was then in his 90s. He remembered that beginning in the late 1940s, patients started streaming in with fatigue, neurological complaints and mysterious symptoms. Before that time patients mostly came in periodically with problems like appendicitis or a heart attack or a stroke, but suddenly there were droves of people–mostly women–reporting new symptoms. He said he and his colleagues would shake their heads wondering what was going on.
This was the dark age of chronic illness. Medical communities couldn't find an explanation, but they noticed autoantibodies were present through blood tests. So they came up with the theory that the immune system is destroying the body’s own organs, glands and connective tissue. There was no proof this theory was true then, and there continues to be no proof today. Those antibodies are there because your immune system has created them to seek out a pathogen inside your body, and it’s this pathogen that is causing the symptoms that get lumped under autoimmune labels today.
The autoimmune theory of the body attacking itself was cemented in, and we continue to live with it decades later as an ever increasing number of mysterious conditions are labeled autoimmune. It’s outrageous that with all the technology and advances we have made, this theory still stands. Think about cars in the 1950s, or the phones from the 1950s, and how much they’ve changed. But when it comes to chronic illness, we’re still in the dark ages. Medical communities still don’t know why so many people are getting sick, and at younger and younger ages. And unfortunately, science and research are looking in all the wrong places and putting the focus on areas like genetics, when it’s not our genes that are responsible for chronic illnesses, but viruses, bacteria, heavy metals and other toxins. You can find out the true causes of almost 200 symptoms and conditions, including many which are wrongly considered to be genetic, in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Your Immune System, Working Hard
As I share in Thyroid Healing, the truth is your body never attacks itself. Your immune system can become burdened or weakened by various factors, but it doesn’t ever turn on you.
In the case of neurological autoimmune conditions, what’s happening is a virus is feeding on its favorite foods, including toxic heavy metals, like mercury, copper and aluminum; eggs, dairy, corn and gluten; pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. Unknown to medical research and science, a virus is a living thing and it needs to eat to survive. This is some of the information I delivered that medical communities are only beginning to consider. One of the by-products a virus creates and eliminates after it feeds on these foods is what I call a neurotoxin. These neurotoxins inflame the nervous systems of anyone dealing with autoimmune symptoms and that’s what causes neurological symptoms. Medical research and science are unaware of these viral neurotoxins.
The Epstein-Barr virus is often the culprit. There are more than 60 strains and mutations of Epstein-Barr, though science and research hasn't discovered this yet, so most of these strains won’t even show up on a blood test. Other troublemakers include undiscovered strains of shingles (some of which don’t cause a rash at all) and multiple mutations of HHV6, including HHV7, HHV10 and HHV16. (Bacteria, by the way, doesn’t create neurological symptoms because bacteria doesn’t produce neurotoxins when it feeds).
These elusive, problematic pathogens can bury deep inside the body and its organs, making it impossible for current medical testing to identify them. Meanwhile, your loyal immune system is doing its best to seek out and destroy these elusive, problematic pathogens and that’s why autoantibodies can show in a blood test–they’re going after the virus, not attacking your own body.
How Celery Juice Helps Heal Neurological Symptoms
So many people have lost years of their lives, their relationships, or their jobs due to autoimmune disease and neurological symptoms. They’ve been hurt and crushed being chronically sick for years and being told damaging misinformation about why they’re sick. Celery juice is an incredible tool to help move these people forward with healing when nothing or little else has.
Celery juice contains undiscovered sodium cluster salts that break down the membrane of viruses and disarm and weaken the toxic heavy metals these viruses feed on. The celery juice then helps flush the residue out of your body, ultimately lowering inflammation.
People who have an autoimmune disease will also eventually suffer from endocrine issues as a result of the virus and its by-products infecting, inflaming and weakening the endocrine system, including the pancreas, adrenals, thyroid, pituitary gland, pineal gland and hypothalamus. Celery juice contains a natural plant hormone that is undiscovered that feeds and replenishes every single gland in the endocrine system. By balancing out the endocrine system, healthy levels of hormones can be restored over time, especially if the other healing information I share in the Medical Medium book series is followed.
Below I will cover a few common neurological autoimmune conditions that are misdiagnosed and misunderstood, however I cover these conditions and many more in great depth in the Medical Medium books so I encourage you to read and refer to them for further information and healing guidance. I also share exactly how celery juice helps each condition in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
Fibromyalgia. This is caused by Epstein Barr virus’ neurotoxins. The neurotoxins land on nerves and are an allergen to your nerves. They’re responsible for peripheral and central nerve inflammation that results in the aches, pains, fatigue, stiffness, and tenderness fibro sufferers experience.
You might be surprised to learn this: Lyme disease is a viral condition, not a bacterial condition. It’s not caused by bacteria—borrelia, bartonella and babesia or any others (the list of falsely accused bacteria will likely keep growing). If Lyme disease was caused by bacteria, then antibiotics could take care of it. You see, borrelia, bartonella and babesia aren’t super bugs, like the various forms of MRSA and c.diff. So antibiotics would effectively killing the so-called Lyme bacteria. Bacteria doesn’t cause neurological symptoms. But viruses do.
Most people’s Lyme disease symptoms are caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), though all other viruses in the herpetic family can also cause them, including HHV-6, all the way up through the undiscovered HHV-9, HHV-10, HHV-11, and HHV-12. If you find this surprising or difficult to believe or you simply want to know more about it, the best thing to do is to read the chapter on Lyme disease in Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal. I explain how Lyme disease has come to be seen as a bacterial illness, the truth about tick bites, how to begin healing from Lyme disease and much more.
Whether you believe Lyme disease is a bacterial issue or you now understand it’s a virus, celery juice is a powerful tool for healing. Celery juice kills off both bad bacteria and viruses. You can start to move forward with healing from Lyme disease by drinking celery juice daily in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice, drinking the Medical Medium Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie daily, taking the right form of vitamin B12 to heal the neurological symptoms and reading the Medical Medium books to learn what foods to avoid and what supplements to take.
Epstein-Barr virus is the unknown cause of MS. The virus releases neurotoxins that inflame the central nervous system and can also reach the brain where it can cause lesions and mild forms of encephalitis. Celery juice can break down the outer membranes of virus’s cells and kill it off. Celery juice also contains plant hormones that will help balance your endocrine system, which is important because people with MS develop endocrine system problems too, like Hashimoto's or adrenal fatigue. Celery juice will help lift you out of these conditions along with the other healing information and steps I share in the Medical Medium books. If you have MS, you can help rebuild your central nervous system through celery juice plus certain foods and supplements such as B12 with adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, spirulina, leafy greens and more fruits, especially berries like wild blueberries.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Fortunately, chronic fatigue is now at least recognized as a real problem, but sadly medical communities still don’t know what’s causing it. Chronic fatigue has always been caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Once again, the neurotoxins produced by the virus are bringing about brain and nervous system inflammation. Before chronic fatigue syndrome was described and given a name by medical communities, I was calling it neurological fatigue, because that’s exactly what it is: a deep and debilitating fatigue caused by inflammation of the nervous system due to viral neurotoxins.
Remember, there are more than 60 strains of Epstein-Barr virus, and some are more aggressive, so they create stronger neurotoxins that inflame the nervous system. Neurons in the brain are easily affected by these viral neurotoxins, leading to brain fog, confusion, fatigue, difficulty waking, heaviness of the body, and more.
Celery juice is your best weapon for fighting the virus that causes CFS. People who suffer from this illness have compromised immune systems and white blood cells. Celery juice contains undiscovered forms of vitamin C and the trace minerals that will strengthen your immune system and bring it peace. Know too that many people who have CFS are later diagnosed with Lyme disease. When you understand the connections and know that the same virus is at fault for both conditions, you can understand why you might be suffering with both and work on addressing the true root cause: EBV.
These are just a handful of the neurological autoimmune conditions that so many people suffer with. There are hundreds more that are misunderstood and misdiagnosed. You can now know the true causes of your chronic illnesses and symptoms and those your loved ones suffer with too. That’s what I share with you in Medical Medium Celery Juice and the other Medical Medium books. You’ll also find out how you can heal and protect your health for the future. I stand behind you 100 percent. I’ve got your back. I wish you well. You can heal.

This smoothie brings a healthy spin on the classic creamsicle. It's thick, creamy, refreshing, sweet and gives a bright pop of tangy flavor with the orange.
Oranges have been called a “perfect food” and contain an amazing array of healing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. They are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, B-complex vitamins, folate, beta carotene, lutein, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium. Oranges have been known to help prevent cancer, lower high blood pressure, fight off viral infections, relieve constipation, prevent kidney stones and macular degeneration. Oranges contain a significant amount of glutathione which is critical for healthy eye and lung function. Oranges are very good for respiratory problems such as asthma or bronchitis and cardiovascular issues such as hypertension and COPD.
Bananas are one of the most nutritional and healing fruits readily available today. They are 76% water and are packed with vitamins such as vitamins C and B6 and minerals such as potassium, copper, and manganese. This high water/nutrient ratio makes them a great electrolyte food perfect for busy moms, workout enthusiasts, and people on the go. Bananas are also an excellent “brain food” great for heavy thinkers and are known to help build strong muscles as well as strengthen the nervous system.
The coconut water will provide deep hydration and nourishment to your cells. The vanilla gives a wonderful ice cream flavor and its calming effects on the central nervous system will help you move through any stress you are facing over the day.
Orange Creamsicle Smoothie
2 frozen bananas
1 fresh banana
3 whole chopped oranges, peel and seeds removed*
1-2 cups coconut water
Seeds from 1/4 vanilla bean, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
*If you don't have a high-speed blender, you may prefer to try using 1 cup of fresh orange juice as the oranges may not blend smooth.
Place coconut water in the blender. Blend with the oranges until smooth. Add the frozen and fresh bananas and vanilla and blend again until very smooth and creamy. If you use only fresh bananas instead of frozen the smoothie will still taste wonderful. It just won't be as creamy and dessert-like. Serve right away and enjoy!

There are so many conditions and chronic illnesses that celery juice can help treat—and you can find all of this detailed information in my new book Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide—but today I am going to cover the role celery juice plays in your oral health. Many problems with teeth and gums are caused by demineralization and can be traced to bacteria and viruses in the body. That includes gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay, among other oral conditions. Medical research and science are unaware that this is one of the main reasons teeth and gum issues are so prevalent. Celery juice, when consumed in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice is a critical tool to help bring healing to teeth and gum issues.
Demineralization, which can lead to tooth decay, root canals, and teeth implants, can’t only be blamed on your diet over the last few months or even years. Demineralization happens over time and can start as early on in life as in the womb. If your parents or grandparents were mineral deficient, if they weren’t eating the foods that support tooth health, or gut health, their deficiencies were passed down to you. And this is true for most of us. If we think back to the Great Depression, for example, people were really suffering and not getting enough to eat. The generations after were born with the same deficiencies carried through the family line. Along with mineral deficiencies, there can also be a build-up of toxins in the body that are, likewise, passed down from one generation to the next. The toxic heavy metal mercury is a perfect example of one heinous toxin that is passed through the family line and causes or contributes to hundreds of different illnesses and symptoms, including teeth problems.
Foods that are particularly problematic include coffee and dairy. The acid in coffee demineralizes teeth, even if you gave up drinking it years ago. Milk, cheese, and other dairy products contain high levels of sugar and fat which coat the teeth and cause them to rot. On the other hand, an apple, or other fruit like oranges, which often get blamed for causing cavities, actually help clean the teeth and gums. The minerals and acids in these fruits, unlike coffee, kill bacteria on the gum line. This also includes lemons and limes, which are fantastic fruits for oral health. Bacteria and viruses are the cause of many teeth, gum and mouth issues so it's critically important to starve these pathogens and kill them off with the right healing foods, herbs and supplements, all of which I share in detail in the Medical Medium book series.
The Gut-Mouth Connection
All of us have bad bacteria in our bodies. Medical research and science don’t yet know that bacteria and viruses eat–they feed off of favored foods such as dairy, eggs, gluten and others; heavy metals; and toxins. When the bad bacteria in your gut, like streptococcus, eats rotting food that sits in your digestive tract, the bacteria releases ammonia gas, which travels to other parts of your body causing problems. When you sleep, gases creep up through the body into your mouth, giving you that morning breath you notice when you wake up. Morning breath isn’t the only effect, however. If you have any oral health issues, including cavities, they are the result of something deeper that has been happening in your body for quite some time. This means that if you have recently changed your diet to a diet you feel is healthier and you got a cavity after changing your diet, it is not the fault of your recent diet change. Cavities stem from issues inside the body from five, ten, fifteen or more years ago, or even from what you inherited in the womb and were born with.
Diets that are too high in fat and protein, whether plant-based or animal-based, cause this gut rot that the bad bacteria then can feed on. If you eat animal proteins it is important to reduce your consumption of chicken, beef, and fish to once a day instead of three times a day, and ideally to eliminate eggs and dairy altogether. If you eat a plant-based diet, it is important to reduce your oils, nuts and seeds to once a day instead of three times a day. Too much fat creates a playground for bacteria and viruses in your gut, and bacteria like streptococcus or H.pylori can flourish. Gluten is another favored food of bacteria and should be removed from your diet to help oral health. Popular diet trends might tell you to avoid fruit, but pectin from apples, for example, travels to the gut and binds to debris in the intestinal lining helping to dispel rancid fats and rotting proteins from your system. Fruit is essential for healing all kinds of chronic illnesses and symptoms, including teeth and gum issues. If you are afraid of eating fruit because of what you’ve heard from a dentist or what you’ve read, you can read my chapter on ‘Fruit Fear’ in Medical Medium: Secrets Behind Chronic and Mystery Illness and How to Finally Heal.
How Celery Juice Helps
Drinking 16 ounces or more of plain celery juice on an empty stomach every morning is one of the best weapons against teeth and gum issues. I explain exactly how to make the juice, how to consume it and answer hundreds of questions about celery juice in Medical Medium Celery Juice so you know exactly how to receive the healing benefits it can offer you.
There are many ways celery juice health oral health issues. Celery juice will help stop rancid fats from building up in the intestinal tract and prevent the ammonia gases I mentioned above from damaging your teeth and gums. It will also help turnaround bad breath.
Celery juice is loaded with a special form of vitamin C that doesn’t need to be converted by your liver. Good vitamin supplements are wonderful, and I always recommend the best ones. In fact, the right kind of vitamin C is one of the supplements I recommend for people with chronic illnesses and symptoms (you can see how much vitamin C and the other supplements I recommend for illnesses and symptoms such as bloating, brain fog, eczema, acne, diabetes, adrenal problems, energy issues and fatigue, dark under-eye circles, gout, gallstones, hepatitis, SIBO, autoimmune issues, IBS, hormonal issues, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation and more in Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease), So it’s important to take vitamin C, which the liver converts, but by drinking celery juice, which contains a unique form of vitamin C that doesn’t need to be converted by the liver, too, you’ll be supplying your body with the best nourishment you can. The vitamin C in celery juice instantly helps the liver and immune system and will help the supplements you take be better used by your body. The vitamin C in celery juice plus the right vitamin C supplement is great for your teeth and gums.
When your liver and stomach are weak from a poor diet plus pathogens and toxins, your stomach glands also become weak, lowering the production of hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Medical research and science believe there is only one hydrochloric acid. They aren’t aware that hydrochloric acid is actually composed of seven different acids. If one or many of the seven acids are not working well, this affects the kinds of proteins and fats you can digest and breakdown and well you do so. You may end up struggling to digest a small handful of peanuts or a thin slice of chicken. Celery juice helps restore hydrochloric acid levels and bile. You can read about how it does this in detail in Medical Medium Celery Juice. With stronger hydrochloric acid and bile, you can breakdown fats and proteins more easily and kill off bacteria and viruses. Plus, the enzymes in celery juice breakdown, digest, and assimilate nutrients that neither bile nor hydrochloric acid addresses. This is unknown by medical research and science.
One of the most powerful healing properties of celery juice is the undiscovered sodium cluster salts it contains. These sodium cluster salts, which are a special and beneficial sodium, kill off bacteria and viruses. Bacteria is responsible for gum disease and cavities and viruses and bacteria are responsible for many other teeth and gum issues. Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts also disarm toxic heavy metals, which also play a role in causing or contributing to many oral health issues. In Medical Medium Celery Juice, I also share ways that celery juice can be used as an oral therapy for different problems, including cavities, mouth ulcers, mouth sores, gum disease, cracks in the corners of the mouth, and so much more. Drinking celery juice in the way I recommend plus using it for oral therapies as directed is a very helpful tool you can use to assist healing.
Your gut health can also be restored by eating lots of fruit, leafy greens and vegetables, in addition to celery juice. You can find recipes for all kinds of meals and snacks made with fruit, leafy greens and vegetables on my blog and in Life-Changing Foods, Thyroid Healing, and Liver Rescue. Also, consider my 3-6-9 cleanse in Liver Rescue. Please stay away from eating animal proteins three times a day as this will only result in more problems down the track. Likewise, if you are plant-based, steer clear of eating nuts and seeds, or avocado and oils, three times a day, too. Try to keep these foods to once a day for plant-based or animal-based diets. All of the above—celery juice, fruits, and leafy greens—will help strengthen your hydrochloric and bile production so you can breakdown fats and proteins easier and help you start healing from chronic illnesses and symptoms, including oral health issues.
Beware as well of the fluoride treatments that dentists love to give as fluoride is an aluminum byproduct that intoxicates your body, meaning it feeds bacteria and viruses and lowers your immune system. The sodium cluster salts in celery juice act as a disinfectant that works against the bacteria and gases that have built up over decades.
You probably have consumed some food and drinks over your lifetime that weren’t ideal. Candy, soda, muffins, alcohol, cheese, eggs, milk. And everyone comes into the world with some weaknesses and deficiencies that were passed down from their ancestors. We all have something stored inside of us, from toxic heavy metals to pesticides to old pharmaceuticals to various bacteria and viruses. All of these sit in the body causing problems and compromising our immune systems. Without taking the right steps to remove pathogens and toxins from our bodies and restore liver and stomach gland function, one or more oral health issues like tooth abscesses, swollen glands, trigeminal neuralgia, tonsil stones, receding gums, and cavities are pretty much inevitable no matter how healthy your diet is in recent times. It’s so critical to eat as healthy as possible, but it’s important to know it’s not your current or recent diet, or the fruit you may have eaten recently, that’s causing your teeth and gum issues. It’s from long ago.

Watch Sarah show how drinking celery juice have her hope that she could heal her eczema with Medical Medium information.
Eczema and psoriasis are commonly believed to be genetic and/or autoimmune disorders, or simply an allergic reaction. But these skin conditions, along with others like rosacea, vitiligo and more, are none of these. Eczema and psoriasis are not genetic, nor are the autoimmune conditions where the body is attacking itself.
Eczema and psoriasis are really a sign of a liver under a great deal of duress, specifically from a virus, such as the Epstein-Barr virus and the heavy metals copper and/or mercury. When a virus in the liver feeds on this copper and/or mercury, internally produced dermatoxins are eliminated by the virus. These dermatoxins back up into the lymphatic system when the liver is sluggish and overwhelmed and head to the skin. As the dermatoxins surface through the skin, over a hundred different varieties of eczema and psoriasis can result.
Fortunately, there are answers here for you and you can heal your eczema and psoriasis. You can experience smooth, pain-free, and itch-free skin once again.
To find out more about the true cause of eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions and how you can heal yourself, check out the NY Times Bestselling book Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease by Anthony William - http://amzn.to/2DjQjE9

A bowl of creamy pasta is usually a favorite for many, but that usually means cream, butter, milk and cheese. If you have a symptom or illness, or you’re trying to make better choices for your health, dairy products can be problematic and are best avoided. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean you need to give up your bowl of creamy pasta! Try this Fettuccine recipe made with a Cauliflower Alfredo sauce. It’s easy to make and delicious to eat! Serve it over fettuccine made with brown rice, lentils, peas, or chickpeas, or over zucchini or sweet potato noodles and enjoy!
Cauliflower is a nutrient rich vegetable that is excellent for supporting a strong immune system and optimum health. Cauliflower is incredibly high in vitamin C, K, and B-complex and minerals such as boron, calcium, molybdenum, and tryptophan. It is also a good source of high quality protein that is easily assimilated into the body. Cauliflower contains powerful anti-cancer compounds such as indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane, which are particularly beneficial for helping to prevent breast, cervical, ovarian, colon, stomach, and prostate cancers.
Cauliflower also contains a compound called Di-indolyl-methan (DIM) which has been shown to be effective in the treatment of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and cervical dysplasia. Cauliflower also has excellent anti-inflammatory properties due to its omega-3 and vitamin K content and is an essential food for those trying to prevent chronic inflammation as in fibromyalgia, hepatitis, arthritis, cardiomyopathy, cystic fibrosis, IBS, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Cauliflower Alfredo Fettuccine
Half a head of cauliflower (about 12 oz), cut into florets
1/2 onion, finely chopped
