Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog: HEALTH ARTICLES! I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
Below I am sharing an important message for anyone who is wanting to heal or trying to heal. This message is an excerpt from Part V of Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.
"Bullying: you don’t deserve it. Whatever you’ve been through, whatever haters you’ve faced in life, whoever tried to hold you back from doing good: you did not deserve it. Maybe you had to suffer through it because it wasn’t safe to speak up. Maybe you never got to say or do what you wished you could have. Maybe it was only years later that you got validation for calling out a situation that was not okay. Maybe you saved someone with your voice. Maybe you saved yourself. Somehow, you lived through it. You’re still here. And with the life ahead of you, you can choose to be part of a powerful healing movement.
We all know that bullying doesn’t stop when we grow up. The health realm is one area where that’s abundantly clear. It can happen when someone spreads advanced information about healing, it can happen when someone sets out to heal using that information, and it can even happen when someone actually heals. Who would bully a person who has been through debilitating exhaustion and maddening pain, and has finally found a way to feel alive again? Plenty of people, I’m sorry to say. A long history of doubt and shame stretches behind us when it comes to suffering and well-being—especially when it comes to women’s suffering and well-being. With the rise of social media, it has become easier to target those brave enough to share their stories. At the exact same time, mercifully, it’s become easier for people who are struggling with chronic health issues to find resources and find each other.
Critical thinking: we need this in our confused world. Haters: we don’t. Critics want to learn. They educate themselves on what they’re critiquing and aim to leave personal opinion out of it, which creates room for them to change their minds. Haters cast their votes with no intention to change. The bullying this leads to is not the way it’s supposed to be. Still, we must find a way to cope and stay grounded in its presence, to offer information in the face of hate and also offer compassion in the face of ill will. Above all, we must save ourselves.
Life can be so hard. When people are in pain emotionally, and sometimes even physically, because of the injuries they’ve experienced in life, a portion of them become haters. Out of their suffering, they adopt hatred. Yes, we have to have some compassion for these people. At the same time, we need to realize that there are a lot of other people out there in the world who have been injured by emotional or physical suffering, and they would never become hateful against others. They would never bully anyone or try to tear them down. We can’t give forgiveness and allowance to every hater to the point of disrespecting the ones who would never be harmful or hurtful to others, even in the midst of their worst suffering. If we don’t understand the distinction here between haters trapped in darkness and pain who want to pull others into their nightmare and people who are suffering who only wish for the alleviation of others’ suffering, we’re letting the haters off the hook. Yes, we have to have compassion. We can’t go so far with it that we injure ourselves. If we believe everybody is good, we’re going to believe we’re doing something wrong in the end. If we don’t realize that there are haters who could hurt us in our healing process, then it will hit us in our core of self-worth and self-doubt when we’re struggling and trying to heal. Darkness works in this way. Good people tend to give themselves their own lashings and punish themselves when they didn’t even do anything wrong. If we don’t come to the realization that there are certain people who dwell in hatred and keep light from entering their heart and soul, we could get hurt even more along the way, and that could be detrimental to the healing process. You can protect yourself, knowing that you are a good person and it’s not your fault and you didn’t do anything wrong to deserve your pain.
We’re taught that everyone is inherently good in this world. My job is to tell you the truth so you can protect yourself. If we believe naïvely that everyone is looking out for our best interest, then the haters can cause harm to our soul and physical body in many ways. That doesn’t mean that all haters are hopeless. A miraculous event can change a person. There is always hope that a reversal can occur, where light and goodness can enter a person’s heart and awaken them. Still, how much damage was caused along the way? How many people were emotionally harmed to get them to this awakening, and for how many years to come will those selfless individuals suffer for sacrificing their own well-being?
This is a message for the people who are struggling and trying to heal. This is not a message for the hater who doesn’t like or believe in the information in this book or that it has helped so many. Critics are welcome here. If you’re one of them, I know you’re a good person. This is about taking the conversation to another level, opening your eyes so that you can see past your surroundings. My job is to look out for the underdogs who have been through hell and back. There are people who have been bullied and hurt very badly, and it has scarred them. If that’s you, let these living words serve as a little lesson on haters so that you don’t get hurt by the people trying to drag you into their own pain. Think of the living words here as your anti-bullying tool kit, your refuge when that old schoolyard feeling starts to surface."

There are many common chemicals that we use or are exposed to in everyday life that wreak havoc on our health over time. Many of them are so deeply entrenched in our culture and way of life that you may have never questioned their safety or long-term health consequences. One of the most sneaky and damaging groups is what I call "Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders". This collection of toxic chemicals affects every single one of us. While we can't always avoid exposure to these chemicals outside of the home and around other people, the good news is that there's a lot we can do within the home to reduce or prevent these chemicals from surrounding us in our domestic life.
The heinous nature of these toxic chemicals we have all had exposure to in our lifetimes and usually still are exposed to regularly in one way or another–such as in offices, restaurants, doctor's offices and public spaces or when we are around other people–means that every one of us has these toxins to cleanse out of the body. These insidious toxins don't just leave the body on their own, not with the high-fat diets almost everyone has eaten for much of their life, and the pathogens and other toxins most of us have inside us. You have to know exactly how to support your body and liver in the right way so it can do the hard work of cleansing you of toxins that are deep inside your liver and cells. This is the life-saving information you will find inside the pages of Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.
Even if you don't think you have been exposed to toxins, chemicals or pathogens, or you aren't struggling with a symptom or condition right now, later in life your health will be affected one way or another. It's now become almost impossible to avoid developing a symptom or condition at some point in your life with all that we face on this planet. The way to avoid or minimize this, or the way to recover from symptoms or conditions you might already be living with, is to know how to properly cleanse and heal the body.
Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders are just one group of troublemakers that can make us sick. Let's take a look at the troublemakers in this group:
Below you will find an excerpt from Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal on some of these Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders.
Air Fresheners, Scented Candles, Conventional Laundry Detergent, Fabric Softener, Perfume, Cologne, and Aftershave
"We all walk around as if it’s normal and actually good to be surrounded by synthetic chemical products meant to create pleasing smells. Who are they actually pleasing? If no one really likes the smell of cologne, neither the people who wear it nor those who interact with them, why are so many people using it? All it takes is five people wearing cologne in a room of a hundred to overpower the air.
Don’t underestimate the toxic levels of this category. Just because these products have fragrances we’ve been taught to identify as pleasing, whether inside our home or on our body, it doesn’t mean they’re safe. These are some of the most hazardous chemicals to be concerned about, creating a future of health deprivation.
We think, for example, that by using an air freshener, we’re creating a more pleasing environment. Once we unleash that plug-in air freshener, though, our sense of smell instantly becomes disabled. When you’re living in a home or working in an office or other environment with a plug-in air freshener spewing chemical-laden oil into the air, you may not smell it anymore. After plugging them into the wall, many people forget air fresheners are there and don’t notice when they’ve run out because the walls, bedding, pillows, furniture, air vents, and window shades have become so saturated. And while we become desensitized to that scent, it’s nearly impossible to smell anything else.
These chemically scented, vaporized poisons hurt the lungs—their waxy, oily residue builds up in the lung sacs. If you’re someone who doesn’t smoke and yet you love plug-in air fresheners, you’re better off removing your plug-in air freshener and starting to smoke. That’s right; you actually have a better chance of longer-lasting health and vitality without complicated diseases if you smoke cigarettes than if you breathe plug-in air fresheners day in and day out. Does that put it in perspective?
The oily film from air freshener doesn’t only affect the lungs. It also ends up in the liver when it enters the bloodstream from the lungs. Plus we swallow air freshener when we breathe it in through our mouth, and that brings it to the intestinal tract, from which it enters the bloodstream and heads to the liver as well. Air freshener residue in that organ can reduce liver function. If a really inquisitive surgeon opened up the body of a patient who had lived for years in a space highly saturated with air freshener, that surgeon would smell the air freshener scent seeping out of the patient’s blood and cells.
The chemicals in synthetic scents can lower the immune system rapidly. What does that mean? It means that when the chemicals enter our bloodstream, our natural killer cells, lymphocytes, and other white blood cells absorb them, and that instantly weakens our immune cells and even kills some off. Our white blood cells need clean, fresh, oxygenated blood; with chemical scents, our white count becomes hindered. Exposure to a heavy dosage of air freshener, scented candle, cologne, perfume, or similar scent could mean three to four days of a weakened and lowered immune system. Pathogens can take advantage with an uprising—especially because the synthetic scent chemicals can, at the same time, feed viruses and bacteria, allowing them to prosper and reproduce, leading to further illness. Someone who’s prone to urinary tract infections (UTIs), sinus infections, or flare-ups of fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, lupus, MS, eczema, psoriasis, or Hashimoto’s may experience a new flare-up following exposure.
It seems like a really neat idea to plug in a device that releases a scent that makes you think of wildflowers. In the end, they’re not real fragrances. They’re synthetic and man-made in a factory, formulated by a group of people testing scents around a laboratory table and picking the one they like best. Air fresheners sprayed from a bottle or can and scented candles are just as bad. Even if they’re called “natural fragrances,” don’t be fooled. This is the same tactic as listing “natural flavors” in a food’s ingredient list as a secret label for MSG. It’s difficult to find an enclosed space these days that’s free of chemical scent. When we move to a different home, it’s tough to find an apartment or house that doesn’t have a lingering scent in the walls. Out in the world, we’re exposed in stores, malls, hotels, restaurants, offices, friends’ and families’ homes, and public restrooms more than ever before in history. Hop in a taxi or ride service car, and you’re likely to find air freshener coming through the vents. We inhale it just from being near people who have the scent on their clothes from air fresheners at home—on top of whatever scented laundry detergent, dryer sheets, deodorant, shampoo, hair product, lotion, aftershave, cologne, or perfume they use.
We live in a world where chemical sensitivities are becoming much more prevalent. That means that these chemical exposures are not only a nightmare for the individuals already suffering with sensitivities; they’re creating new cases of chemical sensitivities for people who didn’t previously have them. Years ago, it was older people who would complain about smells, saying, “I need fresh air,” “Can you put out that fire?”, “Please shut the window,” “Close the front door; you’re letting dust in,” or “I don’t like the smell of that cologne.” They were the ones who had lived long enough to become sensitive. Now it’s not like that anymore. Younger people are developing actual chemical sensitivities at rapid rates due to all they’re exposed to, and the complaints of older generations are nothing in comparison to what the younger generations are up against.
Now, don’t let this all put you into fear and chaos. While out and about, we can do our best to take measures to avoid these scents. For example, we can choose not to walk by the perfume counter at the department store; to purchase bath, body, and laundry products that are unscented or only scented with pure essential oils; and to find an alternative to the café around the corner that burns scented candles. Because we can’t always avoid them, though— we can’t ask the person standing next to us on the train to go home, shower, and wash their clothes in unscented detergent—we at least need to make our own homes, cars, and wherever else we spend extended periods of time into oases from these scents. If we have any say at our workplaces, it’s ideal to establish scent-free policies. And of course, because we can’t dodge every exposure, cleansing is critical so that we can continually release and rebuild."
Proper cleansing is the critical for anyone living on this planet at this time. Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal is your companion guide for effective cleansing. It gives you the knowledge and tools to help your body heal. Your body loves you and wants to keep you alive and healthy–it just needs the right support. Cleanse To Heal at its core is not only a book about healing, but also empowerment. To be truly empowered, you have to know the truth about what you're up against and how to overcome it. I believe you will find that in these pages.
Think you don't need to cleanse? The truth is that everyone living on planet earth needs to cleanse–provided it’s the right kind of cleansing. Unfortunately, we are living in a time when no one is immune to developing symptoms and conditions and becoming sick. Even if someone isn’t dealing with a symptom or condition now, they will later in life–unless they know how to properly cleanse and heal their body.
There's very specific reasons we are dealing with so much chronic illness today. I share these reasons with you in my new book, Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal. There are pathogens and toxins that are behind chronic illnesses and symptoms and it's important for you to know the truth about them and how to cleanse your body so you can begin healing.
"Even with symptoms from mild to severe creeping up on so much of the population, people often don’t want to know that they have toxic heavy metals or any kind of pathogen inside their bodies. This occurs mostly with younger people. Any kind of bug living inside them seems like an impossibility. Individuals in their late teens, 20s, and even early 30s would often rather think that the reason they’re dealing with a symptom or condition is a lack of protein or good fat in their diet, some kind of imbalance in their digestive tract, too many carbs, or even fruit creating a problem. Only when they’ve exhausted all those options, found they weren’t the answers, and become wiser from the experience are they ready to realize and accept that toxins, viruses, or other pathogens inside of them could be making them sick.
Planet Earth is not a pure place. It isn’t easy to live here or thrive here. Maybe there are other planets where there are no toxins, no exposure to anything harmful, where people’s cells have never experienced poisons from the Industrial Revolution. Not this planet. We all have pharmaceutical-raised pathogens and bits and pieces of industrial waste inside us, some of us more than others, with poisons and toxins residing in our cells and never leaving until we do something about it. We can’t assume we don’t need to cleanse. We can’t assume our bodies just take care of everything naturally if we eat what seems like the best trending diet or what’s considered “right.” We’re grossly mistaken if we accept that eating any given version of “healthy” and “balanced” and “intuitive” cancels out the need to cleanse." - Excerpt from Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal
One of the biggest underlying causes of chronic symptoms and conditions is viruses and the viral waste matter they produce. Below I list some of these viruses that are responsible for so many symptoms and conditions.
When you know what's causing you or your loved ones to suffer with symptoms and conditions such as headaches, digestive discomfort, bloating, weight gain, dry skin, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, aches and pains, thyroid problems, eczema, psoriasis, SIBO, acid reflux, lupus, multiple sclerosis, neck pain, tingles and numbness, tinnitus, or any other symptom or condition, you can take steps to address the root cause. I also provide you with these steps to begin healing in Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal.
Critical Clean Carbohydrates (CCC) is the name I have given to the healthy carbohydrates that provide our organs, tissues, muscles, and cells with the glucose they need to help us stay alive and thrive.
The critical glucose we get from CCC:
We all need CCC. Without glucose, we won’t stay alive. Unfortunately, so many people are dealing with low glucose and glycogen reserves and it’s affecting their health without them knowing. How do we run out of the liver’s glucose and its stored version, glycogen? An overabundance of stress to the liver, which can come from many different sources. Plus, even if you’re eating what seems like enough CCC, there’s also obstacles to glucose absorption, which almost everyone faces due to the diets we have grown up on and the way we are told to eat today, such as the hyper focus on including fats and eating a high-fat diet (which is synonymous with a high-protein diet). This way of eating blocks critical glucose absorption. This is one reason why all the cleanses I offer in the new book, Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune, are designed to reduce fat consumption while emphasizing CCC. This is one key secret to facilitating deep healing.
We often hear that carbohydrates are the enemy and that they should be avoided, and when it comes to unproductive carbohydrates, refined sugars, and processed foods, it is indeed important to avoid them. But people are being told every day to drastically lower or even remove carbs and sugar from their diet altogether. The trouble is that this advice will be indiscriminating. Natural sugars and other healthy carbs from foods such as fruit, honey, winter squash, and potatoes will be counted as ones you don’t want in your life, when the truth is that they’re CCC; they contain some of the exact healing elements you most need.
One of the most crucial parts of healing is bringing an abundance of the CCC into your diet every day. In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share with you exactly how to bring CCC into your diet and how to use them to help you heal. There are a range of cleanse options inside Cleanse To Heal, including three versions of my nine day 3:6:9 Cleanse, an anti-bug cleanse, a morning cleanse, a heavy metal detox cleanse, and a mono eating cleanse. There’s healing information and tools for everyone and for all kinds of health problems in these pages. And all of them show you how to incorporate CCC to help you heal.
I have watched tens of thousands of people who were cautious or afraid of carbohydrates bring these right kinds of enriching carbohydrates into their life in the ways I recommend. They have witnessed for themselves the incredible healing these foods can bring–along with the other Medical Medium information–from all kinds of symptoms and conditions, including SIBO, acne, bloating, weight problems, diabetes, blood sugar problems, eczema, colitis, anxiety, depression, addictions, reproductive issues, infertility, and many more. One of the most powerful ways you can help yourself and your family heal is by making Critical Clean Carbohydrates your best friend. The bonus is that they taste delicious!
I highly recommend reading Cleanse to Heal so that you can understand how to bring CCC into your life and how to cleanse your body the right way. The truth is that everyone on planet Earth needs help in today’s world due to the toxic exposures we face–many of which are hidden–and those we are born into this world with. Even if you’re not experiencing a symptom or condition right now, you no doubt know someone who is, and unfortunately, things are only heading in a worse direction as pathogens and toxic exposures are increasing.
The way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to hold the truth in your hands about what we are up against, what really causes symptoms and conditions, and very importantly, how to heal from them. Medical research and science don’t have the answers yet so it’s never been more vital for you to be your own health expert and to have this wisdom for those you care about or others who come your way in the future. This is what you’ll find lovingly laid out for you in Cleanse to Heal. I’m honored and touched to have you here in this community of empowered women and men who are taking charge of their own health. We are rising up an army of light together.

“The ideal amount of celery juice for most adults is a minimum of 16 ounces per day. Not that you have to or necessarily want to start with 16 ounces the first time you try it. Feel free to work your way up, starting with 4 or 8 ounces if you’re sensitive and from there increasing it a little every day as you get used to it. Once you’re ready, it is a good idea to commit to those 16 ounces as a minimum. Why? Because most people have more than a few health obstacles to overcome.
The celery juice must travel quite a distance on its journey. Its first obstacle is often in the mouth, with bacteria or leftover toothpaste, mouthwash, or mouth rinse. (Make sure to thoroughly rinse your mouth with fresh water after brushing your teeth and before drinking celery juice to get rid of any toothpaste, mouthwash, or mouth rinse residue. Even better, wait to brush your teeth until after you’ve had your morning celery juice.)
Then there’s the esophagus, where the celery juice encounters additional bacteria plus deposits of ammonia and unproductive, detrimental acids. Next it reaches a hurdle at the bottom of the stomach pouch, just before the duodenum (the entrance to the small intestine). There’s a little ledge right before the duodenum, and depending on someone’s age, that alone can be filled with decades—sometimes 30 to 40 years’ worth—of debris that has gummed up and weighed down that little cliff. This debris could be from proteins, fats, preservatives, solidified ammonia, acids, and more, all of it corroding and formed into a sludgy deposit. Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts start eating away at this old pile of toxic sludge, slowly dissolving it over time.
So first the celery juice has to get through those obstacles. Then, as the celery juice is moving through the duodenum, it’s usually met with a barrage of H. pylori, Streptococcus, and other varieties of bacteria—because most people live with undiagnosed cases of these bacteria. Celery juice has to fight to sustain itself and stay active in this battle, which is doubly hard since it was already defused from dealing with toothbrushing residues and bacteria in the mouth; ammonia, acid, and more bacteria in the esophagus; and debris as it left the stomach.
As it continues through the duodenum, celery juice is bombarded with acids, since most everybody’s pH is “off” internally in this day and age. It’s not like we’re automatically alkaline. Sure, if someone’s healthy, their pH will be pretty balanced, and celery juice won’t have to do much work in this respect. Most people are filled with bacteria, though, and that’s a big acid producer. Unproductive diets and punishing stress levels are acid producers, too. As soon as we take our first sip, celery juice starts altering the internal pH of the body, beginning with the mouth and continuing down the digestive tract. It’s almost like an explosion as celery juice tries to turn the tide of high acidity, and that’s yet one more source that defuses it in its travels through our system.
Sound like a lot for celery juice to encounter and keep up its strength? There’s more. Just a few inches farther in the small intestinal tract, celery juice encounters a slick of mucus. It’s there in young and old alike—a layer of bottom feeders like strep and E. coli and other unproductive bacteria, usually along with two to three unproductive funguses, all of them just waiting for protein from eggs or supplemental collagen that we consume, or lactose from milk, cheese, butter, or other dairy, so the bugs can feed on them. When celery juice instead hits this pathway of pathogens, it’s yet one more area of battle.
Plus, there are rancid fats that have hardened and caked along the intestinal wall linings from years of high-fat foods, whether from healthy or unhealthy fat sources, as well as rotting protein that has formed into little balls of debris and created pockets in the intestinal tract that guard more bacteria and funguses. Addressing all of this is yet one more series of obstacles for celery juice during its travels.
That’s not even everything; it only describes the major hurdles that celery juice encounters so far. Then add in excess adrenaline—say, if you ate on the run or under stress, with tension in your gut, or if you ate too much fat with your meal the night before without realizing it, any of which prompts the adrenals to release a burst of adrenaline. When this excess adrenaline enters the intestinal tract, it’s a scorcher. It saturates cells all through the body, so if you were under intense stress or encountered another adrenal trigger the day before, when you wake up the next day, the adrenaline is still sitting in the intestinal tract. Celery juice works on neutralizing this adrenaline: yet one more battle. While celery juice will try to handle it, that’s a tall order considering everything else it went through as it traveled along through the gut.
A high-fat dinner does more than trigger adrenaline. Fats left over from dinner linger in the gut, from the stomach to the small intestinal tract to the colon, like an oil slick, and celery juice is up against those, too. High levels of these fats soak up celery juice’s healing compounds, using up sodium cluster salts, since they must go to work dispersing those fats and cleaning them out of the digestive tract. This means that if someone has an extra heavy dinner, maybe with something fried for the main course followed by dessert, celery juice will need to work extra hard the next morning, and that will diminish some of its healing power as it continues on the obstacle course.
The digestive system was only the beginning. The majority of the world is also dealing with stagnant, sluggish livers, and here’s the critical part: enough celery juice has to make it to the colon with its potency intact to be absorbed into the bloodstream so celery juice’s compounds can travel through the hepatic portal vein into the liver and then into the gallbladder—to help you heal. Regardless of what you’re dealing with in life, a healthier liver means a greater chance of healing any variety of symptom or condition you’re up against. Sixteen ounces is the magic number to do this for the majority of adults. (More soon on amounts for children.)
Once celery juice does get to the liver, it encounters another set of hurdles. For one, most people’s livers are toxic with poisons, pesticides, herbicides, plastics and other petrochemicals, solvents, pathogens such as viruses and bacteria, and many more troublemakers. All of this strains the liver’s bile production. When celery juice’s compounds enter the bile production area, if they’re still potent enough, they will improve the strength of the bile that the liver sends to the gallbladder. This celery juice–bolstered bile then starts dismantling and dispersing sludge in the gallbladder while also breaking down and dissolving gallstones. If you’ve been drinking large enough quantities of celery juice for long enough to get your system clean and healthy, celery juice’s compounds will then leave the gallbladder with the bile as it’s released into the intestinal tract. This is part of celery juice’s responsibility: to come full circle.
Not all of celery juice’s healing components that make it to the liver get directed to the bile. Some leave the liver through the bloodstream, heading up to the heart and brain, although their healing abilities by this point are pretty minimal if someone has a sluggish or stagnant liver, which most people do. It takes time for someone to clean up the liver to the point that celery juice’s components still hold benefits as they exit this way.
That’s okay, though, because celery juice has another way of getting its potent components to the bloodstream. Back when celery juice was first in the digestive tract, only some of it—roughly half— traveled to the liver in the first place. It divided itself on the obstacle course. While traveling through the stomach and the first 36 inches of the small intestine, the other half of celery juice’s chemical compounds absorbed into the digestive tract walls and entered the bloodstream directly without going to the liver first. Traveling through the blood is its own set of hurdles. How much fat is in the blood? (Fats interfere with celery juice’s travel distance.) How many toxins are in the blood? How many toxic heavy metals are inside various organs such as the brain? Speaking of the brain, how many neurotransmitter chemical issues are occurring there? All of this defuses and weakens any strength that celery juice has left. If neurotransmitter chemicals in the brain are diminished, celery juice’s compounds get used up in instantly replacing them, making this their final destination, in a way. If heavy metals need to be dislodged, celery juice’s sodium cluster salts get consumed with helping them out of the body.
Given the gargantuan scope of celery juice’s job, you can see why you’d want to drink enough of it to get that job done. The next time someone is quizzing you about why you drink this particular amount of celery juice, well, it’s up to you. You could give them the play-by-play of its travels through the digestive tract and beyond (in which case you probably want to make sure they aren’t eating!). You could give them the condensed version: celery juice has huge responsibilities and an obstacle course to overcome as it travels through your body and works on healing it. Or you could hand them this book. Whichever you choose, now you know, and that’s critical, because connecting to the “whys” of celery juice makes it all the more powerful.”

“If you have a shaky history with sodium and the word makes you nervous, let me assure you that the sodium in celery juice is beneficial. Even if you’re on a low-sodium diet, you can still have celery juice. It’s not like eating a food that’s had table salt—or even healthier salts like Himalayan rock salt or Celtic sea salt—thrown on it. While your body does not see regular salt added to food as a friend, it accepts the sodium from celery juice as one of its own.
Celery juice is on your side. It actually removes crystallized toxic salts that have been in your organs for years. Now, if you get a blood test when you’re on celery juice, it could show elevated sodium. What the test is really detecting are these old, toxic salts that celery juice is rounding up and sending out of your body. Plus, chances are you haven’t given up table salt, so the blood analysis is picking up on that salt in your system as well. Blood testing isn’t nuanced enough to pick up on the difference.
A blood test could detect some sodium from celery juice, too, although it’s going to be what I call macro sodium, a common form of plant sodium that’s entirely healthy and needed. It’s so beneficial and balancing that it doesn’t spike the blood—meaning that if a blood test is displaying elevated sodium, celery juice’s sodium isn’t causing it. Elevated sodium levels are also not caused by celery juice’s sodium cluster salts. A blood test isn’t sensitive enough to pick up on celery juice’s sodium cluster salts; testing isn’t geared to find them, because they’re a subgroup of sodium that hasn’t been discovered yet by research and science.
So celery juice’s beneficial macro sodium only stabilizes the blood; it won’t lead to high sodium readings. Again, though, it could take a little time to get to those stabilized readings, or they could come and go, because (1) it’s really easy to overindulge in table salt, since it’s practically everywhere, and that’s going to show up on a blood test, and (2) periodically, celery juice is going to be clearing out pockets of old, toxic salt as it reaches them deep in the organs, and that’s going to throw off blood test interpretations.
Celery juice’s complicated structures of beneficial sodium are elevated above other types, with different jobs and responsibilities. This is an entirely different make and model of sodium. It serves as a critical component of neurotransmitters—better said, it’s the ultimate neurotransmitter chemical. It’s what makes celery juice the most powerful electrolyte beverage on the planet. Nothing can surpass or even equal it.
Let’s talk more about the undiscovered subgroup of celery juice’s sodium that I call sodium cluster salts. “Sodium” and “salt” may sound a bit redundant, and yet it communicates that they are mineral salts that cluster around the macro sodium in celery juice. That is, sodium cluster salts are a separate acting group of compounds that surround the element we know as sodium in celery, all of it arranged in a structured form, almost like our solar system. Trace minerals also reside in these living, moving clusters. Some trace minerals are bonded to the sodium cluster salts themselves, and some simply float inside the clusters.
There is information for us within these clusters. That’s rare. For the most part, plants are all about themselves. (Sound a bit like humans sometimes?) The information they contain is largely geared to sustaining themselves in their habitat, to accessing nourishment, to survival. Celery is different. Some of its information is for us, or for other animals consuming it. Sodium cluster salts aren’t there as a defense mechanism or to keep the celery healthy as it’s growing; they aren’t there to keep the plant alive. They’re for us. Sodium cluster salts contain information for our own well-being that’s activated when it enters our bodies. Information from the plant—the herb—itself and information from the sun as the plant was growing. Information about its purpose and how it can help the creature consuming it. Information about the complex job of extending our lives. Even if celery is grown in poor soil, it will still possess its cluster salts.
All salt is not the same. Although it can be easy to believe that sodium is sodium whether it’s in the ocean, a vegetable, soil, rock, or a salt lake, it’s not. If viewing it properly in a chemist’s lab, a technician would discover the various salts contained within the sodium in celery juice. That technician would find that the salts cluster around each other, acting as one—as the sodium in no other herb, vegetable, or mineral does. Not even the salt in the ocean behaves in the particular way that this humble herb’s does.
The sodium cluster salts in celery juice are able to neutralize toxins as they’re floating through the bloodstream and organs. That means that when the cluster salts touch them, they disarm the troublemakers, making them more friendly and acceptable to the body and less toxic, so that they don’t do harm to our human cells and organ tissue.
Toxic heavy metals are a particular type of toxin that celery juice’s sodium cluster salts take on. Heavy metals have a destructive, active charge to them that causes the metals to be damaging to liver cells, brain cells, and other cells throughout the body. Cluster salts defuse the charge, rendering them inactive and less aggressive, specifically disarming toxic heavy metals such as copper, mercury, and aluminum.
Sodium cluster salts also fight off unwanted bacteria and viruses. (You’ll read so much more about this ability throughout the next chapter.) Tricky bugs such as strep can’t become resistant or immune to them, the way they can to pharmaceutical antibiotics, so the cluster salts keep on working as you drink celery juice over time. Celery juice’s mineral salts are able to kill off bacterial, fungal, and viral overgrowth as they travel through the small intestine and colon, and even once they’re absorbed into the bloodstream and pulled up into the liver through the hepatic portal vein. They’re an incredible antiseptic in this way, enhancing your entire body’s immune system.
These mineral salts are also able to support the liver in producing bile. That’s partly because the cluster salts enter the bile to make it stronger and partly because the celery juice rejuvenates the liver overall, allowing it to function properly and produce bile more efficiently. This is one aspect of what makes celery juice extraordinary for the liver.
To recap: The sodium in celery juice is suspended in living water within the celery. Inside that living water are sodium cluster salts, tightly connected to it. So the cluster salts surround and suspend sodium, and they’re also varieties of sodium themselves. The different forms of sodium become one and they’re also separate. That’s how celery juice is structured. Medical research and science haven’t identified this yet because they haven’t tried to look beyond “celery has salt.” It’s not nearly that simple. If they analyze it superficially, it’s going to look like salt. If they analyzed it further, they would be able to separate out and identify the different varieties of sodium within celery juice. And then they would be closer to identifying all that these sodium cluster salts do for our health.
Rather than having to wait decades for these medical answers, you already hold them in your hands. You’ll find out so much about the surprising and potent benefits of sodium cluster salts throughout this book, particularly in the next chapter, “Relief from Your Symptoms and Conditions.”

The best juicer for juicing celery is a cold press masticating juicer. Masticating juicers more gently and slowly extract the juice from celery and don’t generate as much heat during the juicing process. This helps to preserve as much of the nutrients in your celery as possible and minimize oxidation.
My favorite masticating juicer for celery juice is the MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer–it’s so good we have licensed our name for use on this model. This juicer was specially designed to extract as much juice as possible from celery specifically–more than any other juicer model. This means you will use less celery to get your sixteen ounces or more of celery juice than you would if you used another juicer model. The result is that you spend less money on celery.
Masticating juicers such as this one also juice celery with very little heat being generated. When a juicer generates too much heat in the juicing process it oxidizes the celery and diminishes its nutrient value more quickly. The MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer produces high-quality, cold-pressed juice. It uses a low speed of 80 RPMs, which results in minimal heat buildup and oxidation and more nutrient-rich juice.
This juicer is a dual stage juicer, which means the juice is first extracted by crushing the fruit or vegetable. Then, before the pulp is ejected, the pulp is squeezed during the second pressed stage. This results in a higher yield of juice and a very dry pulp. The MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer has an adjustable celery end cap attachment for maximum celery juice output and extraction and also includes a standard adjustable end cap for juicing other produce. There are 3 adjustable pressure settings on each.
Another benefit of the MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer is that it’s quiet. This makes it the perfect juicer for making celery juice first thing in the morning–because celery juice is best consumed in the morning on an empty stomach–without waking up anyone else in your home.
Centrifugal juicers will still juice celery, but they just won’t extract as much juice or preserve as many nutrients. Celery juice made in a centrifugal juicer and consumed right away is still healing. However, if you are able to use the MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer, the juice produced will be higher quality, richer in nutrients, you’ll get more juice from less celery.
As mentioned, the MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer was built to maximize juice extraction from celery, however it also juices fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and wheatgrass so you can use it for any juice you desire. You can find out more about the MM900HDS Omega Low Speed Masticating Celery Juicer on Omega’s website.
