These fun Carrot Hot Dogs are a great option for family lunches and dinners or to serve at parties, picnics, and children’s sports games. The roasted carrots can be made in advance and warmed up in the oven when you’re ready to use them. A “toppings bar” with as many different toppings choices as you’d like is a fun way to offer something for everyone.
Carrot Hot Dogs
For the carrots:
Place the carrots to a small baking dish. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, maple syrup, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, sea salt and water/vegetable broth. Pour over the carrots and cover the pan. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 420F. Place the covered baking dish in the oven and roast for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and roast for another 20 minutes, until the carrots are just tender.
Place carrots in hot dog buns and add toppings. Serve immediately.

Urinary tract infections, bacterial vaginosis, bladder infections and yeast infections...you might be wondering why these conditions are being grouped together here. The reason, as you'll discover below, is because they all have the same cause. In Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, I share the true cause of these conditions and how celery juice can help you heal from them.
In Medical Medium Celery Juice, you'll also find out the true causes of almost 200 other chronic illnesses and symptoms and exactly how celery juice works in the body to help each one of them. You'll also read specific instructions on how to consume celery juice to ensure you receive its full benefits, plus learn additional guidance to help you move forward with healing.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), Bladder Infections, Bacterial Vaginosis (BV), and Yeast Infections
"These conditions are all caused by the same problem: strep. Under the broad umbrella of UTIs, strep can reside in the bladder itself, causing a bladder infection, or it can reside in the ureters or urethra (or, as you saw earlier, in the kidneys). With BV, the discharge present, whether clear or discolored, comes from a chronic strep infection. And in the case of yeast infections, while yeast is present, it’s not the cause of the infection; yeast overgrowth is only present because bacteria are present. While elevations of yeast can become cumbersome, they’re not what’s causing the pain or discomfort; strep is. This is often confused at the urologist’s (and gynecologist’s) office; the common practice is to identify the problem as yeast—mistakenly.
Celery juice travels into the kidneys and down through the rest of the urinary tract, with its powerful sodium cluster salts acting as a detergent along the way, attaching themselves to strep and assisting it out of the body through the urine. Reaching the reproductive system to take care of BV and yeast infections is a slightly more difficult journey. It’s not quite as easy for it to reach the reproductive system through the bloodstream, so while some does reach it that way, celery juice also enters into the reproductive system through the lymphatic system in the groin. Once there, celery juice helps knock out strep so you can find relief."
Celery juice is a healing tool that's here for you and your loved ones who are suffering with any of these conditions, or any other chronic illness or symptom. When consumed consistently, especially along with other Medical Medium information I share, it can truly transform your health.

These veggie burgers are a fantastic way to satisfy a burger craving. With the base of the veggie patties coming from sweet potato and other veggies, you’ll be giving your body nutrients while enjoying every second of sinking your teeth into a delicious burger. Pack your burger full of crispy lettuce, salty and sweet tomato slices, creamy avocado, or any other toppings of your choice and enjoy!
“Sweet potatoes: An important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.” – excerpt from Liver Rescue
Additional topping options:
Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add the onions and mushrooms and fry for 2-3 minutes until the onions start to soften. Add the sweet potato, garlic, coconut aminos and tomato paste. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often, until the sweet potato starts to soften. Add the water add place on the lid. Cook at medium-high heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until the sweet potato is soft. Add more water if necessary. Remove from heat and cool completely.
Place the sweet potato mixture in a food processor and pulse a couple times until the mixture is smooth but still chunky. Don’t over process. Place in a medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside.
Add the walnuts to the food processor and blend until you get a coarse crumb. Add to the bowl with the sweet potato mixture, followed by the ground flaxseed, smoked paprika and ground cumin. Mix until uniform. The mixture should be firm enough to shape into patties - if not then add more ground flaxseed. Shape into patties.
Refrigerate for 1 hour for a firmer patty, or cook immediately using a non-stick pan for 4-5 minutes at medium-high heat on either side.
To assemble the burgers, place the patties on burger buns and add toppings of your choosing. Serve immediately.

Celery juice might not be something you would think of as helpful for an addiction. But celery juice is indeed a very powerful tool for all kinds of addictions. In Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide, I share some of the reasons so many people suffer with addictions and how celery juice can assist in recovery.
Below is an excerpt from Medical Medium Celery Juice on this topic. For more information on the true causes of almost 200 other chronic illnesses and symptoms and how celery juice can help you heal, you can get your copy of Medical Medium Celery Juice now.
"Often addiction is spurred by a lack of nutrients. A dysfunctional liver that’s not able to transform nutrients and deliver them adequately through the bloodstream to the brain and the rest of the body is one major part of addiction. A high level of toxic heavy metals such as mercury, copper, and aluminum in the liver and brain is another major part of it. Emotional duress, stress, compromises, wounds, and injuries can also contribute. Celery juice can help with all of it.
Celery juice stabilizes all aspects of the liver, including glucose reception. Here’s a big reason why that’s important: most people who struggle with addictive actions are also dealing with insulin resistance. Celery juice helps alleviate insulin resistance and helps cells open up and receive glucose without having to lean on insulin alone.
Celery juice nourishes the brain, restoring neurons and replenishing neurotransmitters. It helps neutralize, disarm, and release toxic heavy metals from the brain, also helping flush the byproduct that results when metals collide and interact with each other. Celery juice’s plant hormones also help protect brain cells—slowing down the death of brain cells and even assisting with the production of new cells—so that someone suffering through emotional trials can find balance and calm. Further, the plant hormones from celery juice improve, strengthen, and reinvigorate the adrenals, balancing them when they’re over- or underactive to counteract addictive behavior.
Another benefit of celery juice is that it alkalizes the bloodstream and body, reducing acidosis, which can minimize addictive impulses all on its own, reducing that feeling of needing to reach for a cigarette or another piece of chocolate. Celery juice helps flush out of people’s systems old drugs and other pharmaceuticals that are involved in so much addictive suffering—it helps flush them out of the liver and bloodstream, which leads to fewer addictive relapses."
It's important to drink celery juice in the way I recommend in Medical Medium Celery Juice in order to get the full benefits it can offer. This healing tool is here for you and your loved ones who are suffering with an addiction or any other chronic health issue. When consumed consistently, especially along with other Medical Medium information I share, it can truly transform your health.
These crispy baked zucchini fries are the perfect healthy and delicious way to conquer a fried food craving! Coated in chickpea breadcrumbs and spices, these fries have that crunch factor that will both satisfy you and keep you coming back for more!
Zucchini is a highly alkaline food that is one of the mildest and easiest vegetables to digest. Zucchini is a great source of vitamin A, C, & B-complex as well as minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, and manganese. It is high in fiber and low in calories which makes it a great weight loss food and helps to reduce constipation and bloating.
Zucchini is a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration. It allows the liver to store micro pockets of water that it can later release back into the bloodstream during moments of chronic dehydration in your life. Zucchini have a mild liver purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is also a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
Combine the chickpea breadcrumbs, dried oregano, paprika, garlic powder and sea salt in a small bowl and mix until combined. Set aside.
In another bowl, make the flax egg by combing the ground flaxseeds and unsweetened almond milk. Whisk until uniform. Set aside for at least 5 minutes to thicken.
Dip the zucchini first into the flax egg and then into the breadcrumb mixture, coating it evenly. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the zucchini pieces. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Serve immediately.

Grazing is critical to healing. If your blood sugar drops and your liver’s glucose reserves are low to nonexistent like most people’s are (for more on why this happens and how you can heal, you can read Medical Medium Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, your adrenals are going to be forced to produce excess adrenaline to compensate—corrosive adrenaline that wears out your adrenals and strains your liver and nervous system. If you're already experiencing a chronic illness or symptom, such as acne, eczema, acid reflux, bloating, weight gain, thyroid problems, diabetes, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, addictions, eating disorders, fibroids, cysts, menstrual pain, migraines, autoimmune conditions, Raynaud’s syndrome, Parkinson’s, endometriosis, hair thinning and loss, an autoimmune condition, or any other chronic illness or symptom, your adrenals need support so unnecessary adrenaline isn't being released that could worsen your symptoms or bring on new ones.
By eating a nourishing snack or meal every one and a half to two hours that contains the right balance of the glucose, sodium and potassium your body needs, you can prevent the blood sugar dips that force your adrenals to fill in and release adrenaline. In turn, you save your adrenals, and also your liver and pancreas and prevent corrosive, toxic adrenaline from causing you more problems. Adrenal snacking on the right foods can put you on the true path to healing.
Watch this video to see ten examples of snacks you can enjoy every one and a half to two hours to support your adrenals every day. They are simple and easy to pack foods so you can take them with you or have them prepared for busy days.

High cholesterol is an increasingly common problem for both men and women. But what is really happening in the body for cholesterol to be high? That is what I'll share with you today with an excerpt from Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide. You'll also discover why celery juice is such an important and helpful tool to help heal high cholesterol and so much more.
I wrote Medical Medium Celery Juice to answer your questions about celery juice, inspire you to drink it so you can receive its benefits, and to share the true causes of almost 200 chronic illnesses and symptoms that so many people live with and suffer from.

"Anything to do with cholesterol has everything to do with the liver. Any kind of cholesterol problem developing is a sign of an early liver condition developing. The liver produces, controls, organizes, and stores cholesterol. So when the liver gets sluggish, stagnant, and toxic over the years—which will go undetected at the doctor’s office— and its functions start to break down, cholesterol readings can start to change. This may happen long before tests show elevated liver enzymes, so no one will realize this has anything to do with the liver.
Have you ever wondered how someone who eats the poorest diet can get back perfectly fine cholesterol readings? That’s a person whose liver is not maxed out yet. Then you could have someone with a seemingly healthy diet who’s diagnosed with a cholesterol condition because readings are heading in a direction the physician doesn’t like. That’s a person whose liver is starting to flag from being overloaded for too long. Everyone’s liver has a different state of being. Some are filled with pathogens such as the Epstein-Barr virus and strep. Some are filled with both pathogens and toxins such as toxic heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and other petroleum products. When the liver’s storage is at capacity, that’s when its ability to process, convert, create, store, and develop cholesterol starts to diminish.
Far more powerful than any statin can ever be, celery juice goes to the root cause of cholesterol conditions: it heads to the liver. There, it helps flush, clean, and purify poisons, toxins, and pathogens. It restores and revives damaged liver lobules while its sodium cluster salts reduce viral and bacterial loads. These cluster salts also revitalize the liver’s multiple functions related to cholesterol and improve the strength of the bile that the liver produces—and stronger bile helps break down fats."
If you'd like to learn how to bring celery juice into your life in the correct way so you receive its many healing benefits, I have included all the information you need in Medical Medium Celery Juice. You will find out exactly how to support yourself and your loved ones to heal with celery juice, along with other healing information I share.
Millions of people around the world are experiencing the benefits of drinking celery juice for themselves, and eventually it will reach the billions simply because it works. It will stand the test of time because it's not a temporary fad or trend; it's a deeply healing practice that when consumed the right way can offer you tremendous healing support. I hope you'll give celery juice a real try and join the global celery juice movement if you haven't already.
Pineapple and mango are favorite fruits around the world for good reason, and they blend together perfectly in this recipe. The kick of ginger adds a hint of warmth and spice while also providing a myriad of health benefits such as aiding in digestion and assimilation and helping to prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.
Pineapple’s healing compounds act as brushing mechanisms that help clean up and drive out sticky mucus & debris that can build up inside the liver. Pineapple helps to dissolve gallstones and is an excellent fruit to include in your diet to help cleanse and detox the entire body.
Ginger also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols and is a powerful painkiller which makes it especially beneficial for those who suffer with joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger has incredible immune-boosting and germ fighting abilities and has even been shown to help provide protection and relief from E.coli, Staph infections, and Candida albicans.
Enjoy this smoothie for breakfast or a snack. It's a crowd pleaser so you might want to make enough to share with your friends and family, or consider serving it up at your next brunch gathering!

When you think diabetes, you may think, Been there, done that. We’re taught that diabetes and blood sugar are all about insulin, so they’re all about the pancreas. In the case of type 1 and 1.5, we’re taught that it’s autoimmune, with the body attacking the pancreas. But the truth is that this is misinformation. Diabetes is not an autoimmune condition and diabetes, hyperglycemia, and hypoglycemia have a cause that's not understood by medical science and research: it all comes down to the liver.
Below you will find an excerpt from Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide on the true, unknown cause of diabetes and blood sugar problems, along with how the herbal medicine that is celery juice can help heal these common conditions together with the other Medical Medium information I offer. Celery juice can play a very important role in healing from these conditions, and it's critical to understand why and how it helps. I wrote Medical Medium Celery Juice to answer your questions about celery juice, inspire you to drink it so you can receive its benefits, and to share the true causes of chronic illnesses and symptoms such as diabetes and almost 200 more. You can pick up your copy online or get it at a bookstore or retailer such as Barnes & Noble, Costco, Target, Walmart, Chapters Indigo, and more.
Diabetes (Types 1, 1.5, and 2), Hyperglycemia, and Hypoglycemia
"Early insulin resistance symptoms such as hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, or an elevated A1C start from a sluggish, stagnant liver. When the liver weakens, its ability to digest fats diminishes, leading to larger volumes of fat buildup in the gut, around other organs, and even in the bloodstream. This is what leads to insulin resistance. Plus, when the liver accumulates fat, it loses its strength to control and store glucose in the form of precious glycogen reserves. Celery juice revives the liver, allowing it to dissolve and purge built-up fat that it stored away to protect the brain and heart from an overload of fat. As it returns to vitality, a healthy liver can preserve and release glycogen reserves as needed to prevent insulin resistance.
Reviving the liver is how celery juice helps with type 2 diabetes as well. Along with the proper dietary recommendations, which you’ll find throughout the Medical Medium series, celery juice is very helpful for healing type 2 diabetes. Once the liver springs back to life thanks to celery juice and other dietary support—its liver lobules are revitalized, old fats are cleansed from the liver, and glucose storage is working properly once more—the pancreas can begin to rejuvenate more quickly. Stronger bile reserves can build up, too, so that bile can break down and disperse fats more robustly. Less fat hanging around in the bloodstream means that when any kind of carbohydrate, whether healthy or unhealthy, enters the body, the insulin resistance that so often leads to type 2 diabetes doesn’t occur as easily.
Types 1 and 1.5 diabetes (the second of which is also known as latent autoimmune diabetes in adults, or LADA) are caused by pancreas damage, whether from pathogenic activity or physical injury. Viruses can enter into the pancreas, attacking it and causing pancreatic inflammation, which can lead to a chronic diabetic condition. Theorists claim that types 1 and 1.5 diabetes are autoimmune; that is, that the body’s own immune system is attacking the pancreas. Don’t get caught up in this confusion. In cases where a physical blow to the pancreas is not the cause, the truth is that an invading pathogen is what’s going after the pancreas, and the immune system is reacting to try to save the gland. These pathogens are highly allergic to celery juice’s sodium cluster salts; when celery juice enters the system, it helps kill them off. And remember, the plant hormones in celery juice help stabilize and strengthen all the endocrine glands in the body, including the pancreas. This means that long-term use of celery juice can help improve someone’s type 1 or 1.5 diabetes, provided they also become aware of better dietary guidelines such as lowering fat intake as well as proper supplementation to reduce any kind of viral load inside the pancreas. As insulin resistance lowers, less supplemental insulin is needed.
People sometimes ask if celery juice is safe for diabetics in the first place. As you’ve just seen, the answer is yes. Celery juice is a godsend for diabetics. What isn’t good for diabetics is including foods such as eggs, cheese, pork, milk, and butter in the diet. For a more in-depth understanding of why that is, and fuller explanations of the different varieties of diabetes, turn to Liver Rescue and Medical Medium."
I always say that knowing the truth about what's behind your symptom or condition is half the battle when it comes to healing a chronic illness. The other part is knowing what you can do to heal the real cause. I wrote Medical Medium Celery Juice to give you these answers for diabetes, hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia and hundreds of other health problems that so many people are sadly facing today. There is truth and healing available to you and now it's in your hands.
Mangos aren't just exceptionally tasty, they are also have incredible healing properties. They help to alkalinize the whole body by helping to flush out toxic acids and rebuild the alkali reserves in the body. They're also packed with enzymes and are a prebiotic food, meaning they contain compounds that stimulate and feed the good bacteria in the intestines which greatly aids in digestion and assimilation.
Mangoes are an amazing source of vitamins A, C, E, and B-complex as well as health promoting flavonoids such as beta-carotene and alpha-carotene. They're also a powerful anti-cancer food and are specifically known to help prevent lung, breast, colon, prostate, blood, and oral cancers. They are also highly beneficial in the prevention of strokes, heart disease, arthritis, cognitive disorders, respiratory diseases, and kidney disease.
Mangoes contain a significant amount of pyridoxine (B-6) which is vital for the synthesis of serotonin and dopamine in the brain and is essential in maintaining hormonal balance and proper immune function. Mangoes also help prevent insomnia and provide for better sleep. In some countries mangos are eaten right before bed as a natural sleep aid.
Enjoy this recipe anytime of day. It's wonderful eaten on its own, or served with guacamole, hummus, vegetable crudités or a healthy cracker you enjoy. Or scoop into lettuce or cabbage leaves taco-style, or over a salad.
Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and mix together until well combined. Enjoy with gluten-free crackers, chips, raw veggies, or scooped into lettuce leaves.
