Enjoy the delicious flavors of apple pie in this heavenly smoothie. Creamy, satisfying, and sweet, it will feel like you are indulging in a decadent dessert, but without any of the drawbacks that come with the wheat, eggs, butter, and refined sugar of regular apple pie. In fact, this recipe is packed full of healing ingredients, so you can feel good about making it for yourself and your family over and over again.

Apples are hydrating on a deep, cellular level. They provide precious trace minerals such as manganese and molybdenum, as well as electrolytes and critical mineral salts that help the body rehydrate after exercise or stress of any kind.

On an emotional level, the apple is an ancient food that brings us back to the source. It is one of the very first foods to have comforted us, and so apples connect us to a sense of sanctuary. This makes them ideal for when you’re feeling depressed, alienated, invalid, powerless, useless, worthless—you get the idea. If the time ever comes when you feel you aren’t being validated, eating apples can help change your course.

Apple Pie Smoothie

Ingredients:
2 medium-sized red apples, cored and cut into chunks
1 1/2 frozen banana
1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk (or water if preferred)
1 tbsp maple syrup or 1 medjool date
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
Pinch of ground nutmeg

Directions:
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more almond milk or water if needed. Serve immediately.

Serves: 2

This slushy recipe from my bestselling book Liver Rescue is a refreshing and delicious way to start your morning off right. Friends and family members alike will delight in it, too. Freeze some watermelon the night before so that you’re ready to go first thing, or cut some up and leave it in the freezer for at least 2 hours beforehand.

In Liver Rescue, I share how each of these ingredients can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…

Melons are a powerful liver cleansing food because of melon’s ability to hydrate blood all on its own and help alleviate your liver’s overburdened state. The combination of melon’s unique living water content with its nutrient content allows the heart to work less; melons thin out dirty, toxic, fat-filled blood, allowing the heart to not overwork itself in pumping blood. This reduces some of the liver’s responsibility to protect the heart, which frees up the liver to focus on other important chemical functions that are needed in the moment. Melons also provide the liver with hydration to hold on to for when you’re in a drought, living a lifestyle of chronic dehydration. They flush toxins out of the intestinal tract with ease and rebuild hydrochloric acid reserves in the stomach. And because bile is not needed to break down and digest melon, the liver can work on restoring its bile tank.

Diabetics are often told to stay away from melon when the reality is that all melons, including watermelons, make an incredible food for diabetics because they hold natural sodium combined with natural sugar. (Remember to eat melon on an empty stomach to avoid a stomachache from this predigested food getting held up in your gut by slower-digesting foods.)

Limes (and lemons) improve hydrochloric acid production as well as bile production and potency. They contain micro mineral salts that break down pathogens such as unproductive bacteria, mold, yeast, and fungus to help protect your liver’s immune system. The rich calcium levels in lemons and limes binds to the vitamin C within them, and both of these enter into the liver, where they waken a stagnant, sluggish, fatty liver, helping loosen and disperse fat cells. Lemons and limes clean up dirty blood syndrome, improve glucose absorption, and even protect the pancreas.

Watermelon Slushy

Ingredients:
2 cups fresh watermelon cubes
2 cups frozen watermelon cubes
1 lime, juiced

Directions:
Blend the fresh and frozen watermelon together with the lime juice until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

Tip: Adjust the iciness of the slushy by substituting more fresh watermelon in place of frozen if you desire a less frosty beverage.

Makes 2 servings

In this delicious recipe, creamy cauliflower purée is served atop of hot roasted portobello mushrooms and finished off with a sprinkling of fresh chives. It’s comforting, warming, and nourishing. Pair this recipe with a fresh salad of your choice and it makes a winning dinner you can enjoy on your own or with family and friends.

Portobello mushrooms (and other mushrooms like crimini) are excellent at strengthening the immune system and can significantly lower the risk of colds, flu, ear infections, bronchitis, swollen glands, sore throats, and chronic infections. They have also been shown to slow down or prevent the onset of tumors in the body. These mushrooms are a good source of vitamins E, B12, and D and minerals such as zinc, selenium, iron, and calcium.

Cauliflower contains the trace mineral boron, which is known to help the endocrine system—and yet cauliflower gets more attention for the so-called goitrogens it contains. Cauliflower does the very opposite of what the hype says—it helps the thyroid and the rest of the endocrine system (including the hypothalamus and adrenal glands) to stave off the viruses that are truly behind issues such as thyroiditis.

Cauliflower Portobello Boats

Ingredients:
6-8 large portobello mushrooms
1 tsp dried oregano
1 1/3 lb cauliflower, cut into florets
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup chives, finely chopped + more for garnish
3-4 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
Sea salt and pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and arrange your Portobello mushrooms on top, cap side down. Sprinkle dried oregano, sea salt and pepper on top. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until soft.

While the mushrooms are cooking, place a medium-sized pot on the heat and add about an inch of water and a steaming basket. Add the cauliflower, put the lid on and cook until soft, about 15-20 minutes. Set aside.

Place the cauliflower in a food processor with garlic, chives, almond milk, salt and pepper. Process until smooth.

Take the mushrooms out of the oven and top with the cauliflower purée. Sprinkle fresh chives on top. Serve immediately.

Serves: 3-4 people

Looking for a fun new way to serve potatoes to your family? These pretty potato spirals are full of flavor from the herbs, crunchy, and delicious. Paired with a creamy cashew and dill dipping sauce, this combination is hard to beat and a great way to include more healing foods and herbs in your family’s diet.

Potatoes have gotten a bad rap for far too long. As victims of the war on foods mistakenly categorized as “disease-producing,” potatoes have been blamed for ills they never caused. Potatoes are wrongly accused of contributing to obesity, diabetes, cancer, Candida overgrowth, and many other conditions, while in truth these miraculous tubers can reverse these illnesses. That’s right! Potatoes are actually good for people with diabetes, because they help stabilize blood sugar. The entire potato, inside and out, is valuable and beneficial for your health: potato plants draw some of the highest concentration of macro and trace minerals from the earth.

Cashews are highly beneficial for lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair. Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts and contain a high amount of oleic acid, which is a heart healthy monounsaturated fat that is great for the cardiovascular system. Cashews, like all nuts, are best consumed in small portions.

Herby Potato Spirals

Potato Spirals:
1 1/2 lb medium-sized potatoes (about 6-8)
3 tbsp dried oregano
3 tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp chives, finely chopped, for serving
Wooden skewers, as many as needed

Cashew Dipping Sauce:
1/2 cup cashews, soaked in water and drained
2 tbsp fresh dill, loosely packed
2 tbsp cup fresh chives, loosely packed
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
Sea salt & pepper, to taste
2-3 tbsp water, more if needed

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F. Skewer the potatoes, then carefully cut them with a sharp knife while rotating and holding it at an angle to make spirals.

Place the dried herbs, cayenne and sea salt in a large flat bowl or tray and mix well. Add each skewered potato to the bowl and sprinkle the herb and spice mix on the potatoes until evenly coated. Place on a baking tray and cook for 35-40 minutes, rotating half way, until golden brown and cooked through.

To make the cashew sauce, place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more water if needed. To serve, take the potatoes off the skewers and serve with the dip. These are best served immediately.

This combination of fresh juicy tomatoes, cucumbers and herbs piled on top of pip-ing hot baked eggplant makes for a heavenly meal for lunch or dinner. This recipe is very simple to make, making it perfect for busy weeknight dinners or an easy choice that will still delight your guests at a dinner party.

Tomatoes contain their own variety of vitamin C that’s bioavailable to the lymphat-ic system and liver, supports the immune system to keep it strong against EBV, and prohibits viruses from traveling through the body with ease. When growing, tomatoes absorb and collect the moonlight’s frequency at night. This means that when consumed, tomatoes strengthen the thyroid’s radio-like frequencies, helping to create balance and homeostasis with all of the body’s organs and glands.

Cucumbers strengthen the adrenals and kidneys and flush viral neurotoxins out of the bloodstream. They hydrate the lymphatic system allowing for better cleansing. Cucumber hydration can slow down and even stop a fresh mononucleosis infec-tion.

Onions are one of the most accomplished foods on the planet for keeping down bacterial overgrowth in the body, making them a star for anyone who deals with SIBO. The sulfur they contain (including the phytochemical allicin, other organo-sulfides, and sulfur compounds that haven’t yet been uncovered in research) is part of what makes onions nature’s antibiotic. It’s also responsible for ridding the body of radiation exposure, casting out viruses, and drawing out DDT and other pesticides, herbicides, and toxic heavy metals.

Roasted Eggplants with a Tomato-Cucumber Salad

Ingredients:

For the eggplants:
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground cilantro
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 medium-sized eggplants, cut in half lengthways
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the salad:
4 medium-sized tomatoes, diced
1/2 English cucumber, diced
1/4 red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup mint, finely chopped
1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
3-4 tbsp tahini, for topping (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F/190C.

In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, ground cumin, ground coriander and red pepper flakes.

Arrange the eggplants on a baking tray and score the flesh with a sharp knife. Sea-son with salt and pepper, then brush on the lemon and spice mixture. Roast the eggplants in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until fork-tender.

While the eggplants are cooking, make the salad by combining the tomatoes, cu-cumber, red onion, mint, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well.

Take the eggplants out of the oven and top with the salad. Sprinkle on fresh pars-ley for garnish. Serve immediately with an optional tablespoon of tahini on each.

Serves: 2-4 people

Humble potatoes are an amazing food not only for health (when served without butter, bacon, sour cream, rancid oils and the like,) but also because of the satiety they offer and the variety of ways they can be prepared and enjoyed. In this recipe, potatoes are the star of both the fries and the fat-free, dairy-free nacho cheese dipping sauce. This recipe is simple to make and oh so delicious. Pair it with a leafy green salad for optimal digestion and nutrient assimilation and you have a dinner that will please the whole family. This recipe is also a great choice for a movie night with friends.

Potatoes are 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. In addition to being antiviral, they’re antifungal and antibacterial, with nutritional cofactors and coenzymes plus bioactive compounds to keep you healthy and assist you with stress. Further, potatoes are brain food that helps keep you grounded and centered.

Nacho Cheese Fries

Ingredients:

Fries:
2-3 russet potatoes
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt

Nacho cheese sauce:
1 large potato, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cayenne
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup steaming water or vegetable stock

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F. Cut the potatoes into thick fries, then place them in a bowl with paprika, garlic powder, dried oregano and sea salt. Toss to coat. Arrange the potatoes on a baking tray covered with parchment paper so that there’s space between the fries. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until browned, flipping them half way.

To make the sauce, add a couple of inches of water to a medium-sized pot and place a steaming basket in it. Add the diced potato and carrot, cover and cook for 25-30 minutes until soft. Remove from heat and set the steaming water aside.

Place the cooked potatoes and carrots in a blender with turmeric, garlic powder, cayenne, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper and the steaming water. Blend until very smooth. Serve in a bowl with the fries.

Serves: 2

If people knew all the potent healing properties of celery juice, it would be widely hailed as a miraculous superfood. Celery has an incredible ability to create sweeping improvements for all kinds of health issues.

CELERY JUICE STANDS ALONE

Celery is truly the savior when it comes to chronic illness.  I’ve seen thousands of people who suffer from chronic and mystery illness restore their health by drinking 16 ounces of celery juice daily on an empty stomach.

That’s why long ago I started the movement of drinking pure, straight celery juice, and it’s why I want to be sure people know how to use this potent drink correctly and successfully. Celery juice is most powerful when you drink it SOLO.

While it’s great to consume other green juices or vegetables juices and add in items like spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro, or apples, drink those mixed juices at a different time than your straight celery juice.  These blends function differently than what I’m recommending as your greatest tool for recovering your health: pure celery juice taken on an empty stomach. If you drink your celery juice first thing in the morning, it will also strengthen your digestion of foods you eat for the rest of the day.

 

How do I make celery juice?

Ingredients:

  • 1 large bunch of celery

Directions:

  • Rinse the celery and run it through a juicer. Drink immediately for best results.
  • Alternatively, you can chop the celery and blend it in a high-speed blender until smooth. Strain well and drink immediately.

What is the ideal amount of celery juice to receive the healing benefits?

16 ounces of straight celery juice a day is ideal for receiving its healing benefits. Increasing your intake up to 24 to 32 ounces a day can be extremely beneficial for anyone suffering with chronic illness or symptoms.  


How much celery is needed to make 16 oz of juice? 

One large bunch typically makes 16 oz (2 cups) of juice.  


When is the best time to drink celery juice? 

The best time to drink celery juice is in the morning on an empty stomach before you consume anything else other than water or lemon water (wait at least 15 to 30 minutes after the lemon before having your celery juice. Celery juice is a medicinal, not a caloric drink, so you’ll still need breakfast afterward to power you through the morning. Simply wait at least 15 to 30 minutes after drinking your celery juice before consuming anything else.

If you’re unable to consume your celery juice first thing in the morning before food, then the second-best option is to drink it 15 to 30 minutes before eating something or 30 to 60 minutes after eating a light snack or 2 hours after eating a heavier meal anytime during the day. 

If you’re having 32 ounces a day, you may wish to have it in two 16 ounce servings. You can drink the first serving in the morning on an empty stomach before eating and the second in the late afternoon or early evening, at least 15 to 30 minutes before eating your next meal.

 

Which juicer do you recommend? 

Greenstar Juicer, Omega Juicer, and Aicok Juicer are all great depending on your budget, but any juicer will work.

 

Does the celery have to be organic? 

Organic is best, but if you can’t get organic don’t worry.  You can purchase conventionally grown celery. Then wash each stalk with a drop of natural fragrance-free dish soap, followed by rinsing in water. If you don’t have natural clear dish soap, give the celery a quick rinse in warm water. Making sure to rinse each stalk.

 

Can I make celery juice ahead of time? 

It’s best to drink celery juice immediately after juicing.  But if you don’t have options other wise, do not let it go past one day (24 Hours). If using this option, make sure to seal it in a mason jar, and store in the fridge.


Do I need to cut off the leaves of the celery, they taste bitter? 

You can leave them on, or cut them off. Some people do prefer to cut them off, because they can make the juice a little bitter.


Can I freeze celery juice, and make batches ahead of time? 

If you cannot drink your celery juice after making it, and making ahead and freezing is your only option, then freezing it is okay. But this is a last resort, and should not be relied on. Fresh is always best. Celery juice’s powerful medicinal qualities will decrease when freezing it. 

 

Can I chop and wash celery the night before so it’s ready to juice in the morning?

Yes, this is great way to prepare and save some time for the next morning. 

 

What if I can’t stand the taste of straight celery juice?

If you find the taste of straight celery juice too strong, you can juice one cucumber and/or one apple with the celery. This is a great option as you get adjusted to the flavor. As you get used to it, keep increasing the ratio of celery; the greatest benefits come when celery juice is consumed on it’s own.

 

Is it okay to add lemon or lime to my celery juice?

Celery juice works best on it’s own. Adding any other ingredients to the juice will dilute it’s medicinal properties. Wait 15- 30 minutes after drinking, before consuming anything else. 

 

Can I just eat celery instead of juicing it?

The reason we juice the celery versus eating it is because juicing and removing the pulp (fiber) is the only way to get the powerful healing benefits for healing chronic illness. There is a trend that is now happening that recommends leaving the pulp in the drink and just have blended celery versus celery juice, which removes the fiber. Try not to get misled by this trend. Leaving the pulp in will keep you from receiving the unique healing benefits of celery juice.

Eating celery itself is helpful and should be part of your diet, but you will not be able to consume enough celery to get the benefits of juicing it.  You wouldn’t be able to receive the concentrated undiscovered cluster salts, that do all of the following:

  • Quickly rebuild your hydrochloric acid so that your stomach can break down protein. If protein isn’t broken down properly it will cause gut rot. Strong hydrochloric acid is important to kill off pathogens entering your mouth.  

  • Celery Juice increases and strengthens your bile. Strong bile is important for the break down fats, and for the killing off pathogens; that have made their way into your body. Eating straight celery wouldn’t allow you to get enough of celery’s cluster salts; that acts as antiseptics for pathogens.

  • Celery juice restores your central nervous system. Removes old toxins and poisons, such as: old pharmaceuticals from your liver.


Is celery juice okay to consume while pregnant?

Yes, celery juice is safe and healthy to consume while pregnant. If you have any concerns, you can consult your doctor.

 

Can I add ice to my celery juice?

It’s best not to add ice, ice will dilute the healing properties of the celery juice.

 

Is it normal to experience a change in bowel movements after drinking celery juice?

Some people may experience a change in their bowel movements when starting to consume celery juice. This is a normal detox reaction that some individuals who have a higher level of toxins may experience. Celery juice will kill off unproductive bacteria in the gut and will also help purge the liver. This can result in loose stools as the body pushes out the toxins from a very toxic liver. Almost everyone today has some degree of liver toxicity, which, as I share in my book Liver Rescue, can lead to countless symptoms and conditions. The loose stools will pass as your body heals and you may notice your bowel movements become more regular and healthier than ever. If you find celery juice too cleansing, try 16 oz of straight cucumber juice. Cucumber juice does not have the same benefits celery juice does but it is very gentle and a great choice until you can restart celery juice.

 

Will I experience an increase in symptoms after drinking celery juice?

Celery juice is very healing, and the undiscovered sodium cluster salts will begin to kill off pathogens like viruses such as Epstein-Barr and Shingles, as well as bacteria such as Streptococcus inside the body right away. For some people, if they’ve already experienced some symptoms on and off in their life such as fatigue or other symptoms, it’s possible that in some cases these people may temporarily experience symptoms again. These symptoms will be short and brief as the body heals and cleans up. This is a powerful healing step that celery juice can offer for long term future health—WITHOUT symptoms.

However, many times when someone reports feeling an increase in symptoms and thinks it’s because of the celery juice, it will actually be because of something else happening in their body, life or diet but the celery juice unfairly takes the blame. It’s important to understand what else could be happening inside the body and how dietary choices and other lifestyle factors could be leading to the increase in symptoms and conditions someone could be experiencing and how to properly support the body to heal. This is what is covered in great depth in my books Liver Rescue, Thyroid Healing, Life-Changing Foods and Medical Medium. It’s never been more critical to empower yourself to become an expert on the true causes of your symptoms and conditions.

 

Is it normal to get bloated after drinking celery juice?

No, it is not normal to get bloated after celery juice. However, it's possible that some people who already experience bloating may get some temporary bloating. 

Celery juice rapidly speeds up digestion. It does this by prompting the liver to increase bile production, and instantly strengthening the stomach’s hydrochloric acid production. Which then begins to break down old undigested rotting protein, old rancid fats trapped at the bottom of the stomach, and in the small intestinal tract that have been there for decades in everyone. Once these fats and proteins dissolve, bloating tends to go away for almost everyone who is dealing with chronic bloating issues.

But for some, a feeling of bloating can occur that can be mild to severe, depending on how toxic someone’s digestive tract has become and how much old rotten undigested debris is in their digestive tract. As these individuals continue to use celery juice the right way long term, the condition and toxicity of their digestive tract will improve and bloating can disappear— as long as their other eating choices are within the guidelines shared in the Medical Medium information.

 

I experience stomach pain or upset after drinking celery juice, what is causing this?

This is when someone’s stomach nerves are sensitive. The vagus nerve is the main nerve that sends signals, and helps the stomach to function. Often low grade viral infections such as Shingles and the Epstein Barr, create a lot of neurotoxins that mildly inflame the vagus nerve. So when you drink celery juice, it begins to clean the neurotoxins off the tiny nerve endings inside the stomach lining. This can cause a gentle reaction. Also many peoples stomachs are filled with bacteria such as E. Coli, Streptococcus and H. Pylori. These bacteria die off rapidly which can prompt a spasm, that can be temporarily painful.

 

Does celery juice contain oxalates?

There is a myth that certain leafy green vegetables and herbs like celery are high in oxalates and are therefore harmful. This is completely incorrect and is preventing many people from getting some powerful and needed nutrients and healing properties provided by foods deemed to be high in oxalates. Oxalates are not the concern they are believed to be.

There are oxalates in every single fruit and vegetable on the planet. The vast array of nutrients in so-called high oxalate leafy greens and celery are some of the most nutritious available to us. Medical research and science has not discovered that there are anti-oxalates in fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens that prevent the oxalates from causing us the damage the current trend tells us they do. In reality, these foods don’t cause us any harm, rather they provide us with critical healing nutrients like phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals.

 

Is there anything that can be added to celery juice to make it more beneficial?

Celery juice is a healing tool for the chronically ill. It has healed and continues to heal millions of people worldwide. Sadly, some individuals are now trying to take advantage of the popularity of celery juice by changing the recipe and adding new ingredients so they can call it their own and profit from it. They recommend adding ingredients like collagen, apple cider vinegar, and activated charcoal to celery juice, but these three items all destroy and denature celery juice when added to it, taking away all of its one of a kind healing properties and bringing ingredients into your body that don’t support healing.

For the protection of your own health, it’s important you are aware of how misleading and unhelpful these trends are that compromise the purity and power of celery juice. These trends have been started by individuals who don’t even believe in celery juice and the healing properties it possesses. They never knew of its existence as a healing tool until the global celery juice movement I started began to organically reach millions of people because it is so effective at helping to heal all kinds of health symptoms and conditions.

These financial investor created trendsetters don’t even know what it is about celery juice that makes it so effective, such as its undiscovered sodium cluster salts that destroy the cell membranes of pathogens so they can be killed off and how the cluster salts rebuild hydrochloric acid. Without knowing how celery juice works and why, they can’t know how to consume it to receive its benefits and how vital it is to not add ingredients such as collagen, apple cider vinegar and, and activated charcoal.

Knowing the right way to drink celery juice is critical for you to get its benefits. There are some ingredients that can activate or enhance the healing properties of celery juice even more. Some of those ingredients are magnesium, l-glutamine and choline for example.

 

Can breastfeeding women drink celery juice?

Celery juice is incredible for breastfeeding. It can provide an abundance of trace minerals, vitamin C and neurotransmitter chemicals such as the undiscovered sodium cluster salts for the baby to develop healthy, strong organs. Celery juice also helps clean and detoxify the breast milk, purifying it so the baby receives the purest breast milk possible.

 

Can babies and children drink celery juice?

Yes, celery juice is incredible for the health and development of babies and children.

 

Can I take celery juice powder or celery powder instead of drinking fresh celery juice?

No, celery juice powder and celery powder can’t replace fresh celery juice. Celery juice powder and celery powder don’t offer any of the benefits that 16 ounces of fresh straight celery juice can. Selling celery juice powders and putting celery inside supplements is going to become a popular trend as celery juice becomes even more well known and people try to profit off the global celery juice movement that is healing the chronically ill. Try to avoid all of these fads. They are a waste of money and they don’t offer the same healing benefits as drinking straight, fresh celery juice every day.


Are there nitrates in celery juice?

Celery and celery juice can’t contain any nitrates that are activated or harmful unless the celery has oxidized or been dehydrated. The naturally occurring nitrates in celery don’t exist when the celery or fresh celery juice hasn’t yet oxidized. When fresh celery juice or celery does oxidize, just like when any herb, vegetable or fruit oxidizes, then a naturally occurring nitrate can develop. But this naturally occurring nitrate is also never harmful in any way, shape or form. Celery juice powder and celery powder have oxidized so they can contain naturally occurring nitrates because that developed through the oxidation process.

These nitrates are not the same variety of nitrates which are considered to be irritating to some people. It’s important to know that not all nitrates are the same, just like all people are not the same, all water is not the same, all sugar is not the same, and all protein is not the same. For example, gluten is an entirely different protein than the protein inside meat or the protein inside nuts. Also, the naturally occurring nitrates that can develop in an oxidized form of celery such as celery powder and celery juice powder are not the same as the harmful nitrates that are added to meat and all kinds of other products.

Also, nitrates are different to nitrites; they’re not the same thing. Even celery powder, which does contain naturally occurring nitrates, can’t be relied upon as a method for curing foods such as pickles or meat because it still doesn't contain nitrites. Fresh celery juice also doesn’t contain nitrites. Anything naturally occurring in celery and celery juice is not harmful. This is the same for pure celery powder and pure celery juice powder. However, harmful nitrates can be added to celery powder or celery juice powder by the company that makes it or uses it in another product. Your fresh celery juice can not have harmful nitrates in it unless you were to add them in yourself.

If you don’t drink fresh celery juice because you believe it contains harmful nitrates, then you are unfortunately going to lose the unique healing opportunity fresh celery juice, which does not contain nitrates, can provide.

 

How long does it take to feel the benefits of drinking celery juice?

It depends on what condition the person is in. Almost everyone feels benefits of some kind in their first week of drinking celery juice in the right amount and in the right way daily. Many people even feel benefits after their first juice. It all depends on the person and their circumstances, such as their health conditions and symptoms and how toxic and overburdened their liver is with different pathogens and poisons such as pesticides, solvents, herbicides, toxic heavy metals, and all kinds of other chemicals and toxins. (See Liver Rescue for more information on what having a toxic liver means, how common it really is and how to heal your body). If someone is dealing with weight issues, if they have a lot of putrefied and rancid fats in their colon, and/or a lot of bacteria in their intestinal tract such as streptococcus, this will also affect the healing timeline.

The amount of stress someone is experiencing in their life, what else they choose to eat and drink in addition to their straight celery juice, and their other lifestyle habits will also play a role in how long it takes for someone to feel the benefits. But most people do feel a difference rather quickly. Some people who have been drinking celery juice for a long time get used to how good or how much better it makes them feel than when they weren't drinking it. Then they stop drinking celery juice temporarily, like many do, and find they don’t feel as good anymore. They realize at this point just how instrumental the celery juice was in helping them feel better.

It’s important to know that even if someone doesn’t see or feel the benefits of drinking celery juice quickly, it doesn’t mean the benefits aren’t happening. Everybody who drinks celery juice receives benefits immediately, because the healing powers of celery juice begin working immediately upon entering the body. For some people, it can take a bit of time to see or feel the benefits in a tangible way they can notice, even though the celery juice has been providing healing benefits from the first drink internally.

 

Is there too much sodium in celery juice?

All salt is not the same, just like all sugar is not the same. Consuming high fructose corn syrup, which is detrimental to health, is not the same as eating an apple, which can bring healing to the liver and provide a wealth of critical nutrients. So don’t get confused by the idea that all salt is the same, because it’s not.

If you hear someone say that there’s too much salt in celery juice, they’re not correct. The sodium cluster groups in celery juice are a subgroup of sodium. Science and research have not even discovered all the variations of trace minerals and subgroups of sodium that reside in celery juice. Sodium cluster salts are healing for the body and we can’t get have enough of them. Sixteen ounces of celery juice on a daily basis provides these sodium cluster salts we so greatly need.

Celtic sea salt or Himalayan rock salt are entirely different forms of sodium. No matter how high quality the salt, putting Celtic sea salt or Himalayan rock salt in a drink or on your food is not the same as consuming enough of these undiscovered sodium cluster salts from celery juice. Sodium custer salts are the only form of sodium that destroys pathogens, helps detox the body and helps restore electrolytes and neurotransmitter chemicals. The sodium in celery juice is a medicinal sodium that’s meant for your bloodstream and your body whereas you need to cautious of consuming too much of the type of sodium that comes in even the highest quality salts.

 

Can I juice celery root instead of celery?

No, celery root is a different plant to the large bunches of celery stalks with leaves. Juicing celery root will not provide the same healing benefits.

Cucumber noodles are an easy and delicious way to reap the many healing benefits of this special fruit. Topped with a chunky sauce of fresh, juicy tomatoes, flavorful garlic, and fragrant basil, this recipe provides a wonderfully healing and tasty meal or snack for anytime of day. You may find this simple recipe becomes a daily or weekly staple for you and your family!

Cucumbers strengthen the adrenals and kidneys and flush viral neurotoxins out of the bloodstream. They hydrate the lymphatic system allowing for better cleansing. Cucumber hydration can slow down and even stop a fresh mononucleosis infection and the high fiber content of cucumbers makes them an excellent remedy for constipation by adding bulk and hydration directly to the colon.

Tomatoes contain their own variety of vitamin C that’s bioavailable to the lymphatic system and liver, supports the immune system to keep it strong against EBV, and prohibits viruses from traveling through the body with ease. When growing, tomatoes absorb and collect the moonlight’s frequency at night. This means that when consumed, tomatoes strengthen the thyroid’s radio-like frequencies, helping to create balance and homeostasis with all of the body’s organs and glands. Tomatoes help to stop at least 20 different kinds of cancer. They also prevent fibroids, cysts, tumors, lipomas, and nodules from growing and are antiviral and antibacterial.

Garlic is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal (including anti-mold), anti-parasitic, and rich in the phytochemical allicin, a sulfur compound that prevents disease. Contrary to some mistaken theories, garlic does not kill productive bacteria in the intestinal tract. It only kills unproductive bacteria.

Cucumber Noodles with a Chunky Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:
1 English cucumber, peeled
2 medium-sized tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 clove of garlic
1/4 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped, more for garnish
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper, to taste
Squeeze of lemon juice on top (optional)

Directions:
Make the cucumber into noodles using a spiralizer or vegetable peeler. Divide between two bowls and set aside.

Place the tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in a food processor and process briefly until you get a chunky tomato sauce.Ladle it on top of the cucumber noodles and top with fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon juice (optional).

Serve immediately.

Serves 2

Elderberries are one of the most effective remedies for viral and bacterial infections such as colds and flu and can substantially shorten the duration of your illness if you get sick. The Elderberry Syrup recipe I have to share with you is as clean, simple, and healing as it gets, with none of the preservatives or additives you might find in some store bought brands. It’s also sweet and delicious, making it a fantastic remedy that even children will enjoy and take willingly.

Elderberries contain special proteins and bioflavonoids that have the ability to destroy viruses on contact that infect cells in the body. Elderberries are also known to have the ability to significantly enhance immune function by boosting the production of cytokines in the body. In addition, they are very beneficial for bronchial and respiratory problems and can help loosen and expel congestion in the lungs.

Elderberry syrup is also rich in vitamin C and a wealth of other critical vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and many nutrients undiscovered by science and research.

Elderberry Syrup

Ingredients:

3/4 cup dried elderberries
3 cups water
3/4 cup raw honey

Optional additions:
1 cinnamon stick
1 whole star anise
¼ tsp whole cloves

Place the dried elderberries and water in a medium-sized saucepan (with optional spices) on the heat. Cook on medium-high for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until thick and reduced by half. Remove and cool completely. Strain the syrup into a bowl, pressing the juice out of the berries with a wooden spoon and discarding the whole spices. Whisk in the raw honey and pour into jars.

For health maintenance, enjoy 1 tablespoon per day. For assistance in recovering from a cold or flu, enjoy 1 tablespoon 3 times per day.

Makes: 1-2 cups
