Why You Need To Start Juicing Celery

I know, right? Celery juice doesn’t sound like a milkshake, I get it.

I am sure that I lost a lot of people at the title of this blog, but to those of you who decided to read on, I want to share with you the amazing benefits of juicing this seemingly simple vegetable.

Now you might be thinking, what can celery juice really do for me? I am here to tell you, my sweet friend, that it could help you with a host of different symptoms.

Throughout my time researching the thousands of different theories on which best way to heal my gut issues, I came across the benefits of celery juice quite often. Due to the fact however, that celery juice was a boring concept that didn’t really sound that tasty, I did not put it to the test until quite recently.

I finally broke down and gave myself the challenge to start every morning off with a 16oz glass of pure organic celery juice fresh from my juicer, and I can honestly say that I have seen amazing results. I felt amazing improvements in my digestion, but one of the most profound differences I noticed was in my skin.

For a few years now, I have been battling moderate to severe cystic acne, only ever showing up on my chin. I have tried nearly everything to combat this acne. I have had facials, chemical peels, tried different skin care, drank more water, ate less chocolate (or I tried to), and I even stopped wearing make up most of the time in order to allow my skin to breathe. Nothing seemed to work. Cutting out dairy and artificial foods made a massive difference, but after a while, some acne still returned, as I was still dealing with some underlying inflammation that I had not healed. I knew deep down that a cream or having regular facials wouldn’t solve the problem.

Certain things did help, such as improving my gut health (shameless plug to keep an eye out for my new eBook, The Beginners Guide to Gut Health, coming soon), however, since including celery juice into my daily routine, I can honestly say that I have never seen my skin look this good. I feel so comfortable and confident without makeup, and I feel like I am glowing, which is something I have never really experienced before, despite eating healthy for years. After listening to the audio book, The Medical Medium Protocol, and looking up all of his testimonials on the internet, I couldn’t ignore the benefits of celery juice anymore.

Celery juice is actually quite salty to drink. When I first tasted it, it reminded me a bit of a Caesar (don’t get your hopes up, it isn’t really like a Caesar, and adding vodka kind of defeats the purpose to what we are trying to do here). I actually found out that this is because celery is a natural source of sodium, which can help to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and allow them to be safely eliminated from the kidneys! Our bodies need sodium, but prefers natural plant sources such as celery or beets, rather than from less healthy sources such as table salt or packaged foods.

Celery juice is also a natural diuretic, and serves to flush toxins out of the body. It has many other amazing properties, such as aiding in digestion and relaxing the nerves!

Why am I so excited about celery juice? I think it is so a m a z i n g that we can use food as our medicine. I believe that there is such thing as healing your body, rather than living with an illness and keeping symptoms at bay with medication.

The best thing about this medicine? It is so easy! If you have a juicer, great! If you don’t, you can also blend up the celery in a blender and strain out the fibrous part of the juice with a nut milk bag and/ or strainer. If you try juicing the celery, and the taste is a little too much for you, try juicing 1/4 or 1/2 of a green granny smith apple, or one cucumber with the celery! This will cut some of the bitter, salty taste. However with that said, I can attest to the fact that as someone who adores sweet foods, I actually now crave my plain celery juice in the morning!

To me, true beauty is being as healthy as possible, from the inside out. When you are truly healthy, you g l o w. Why pay a beauty company for a shimmery make up product, when you can manifest this beauty simply from living your best, most healthy life?! *Disclaimer- I am not against makeup, I am just saying that it is a nice feeling to feel radiant without it! Not to mention, the added benefits of simply feeling amazing because you are improvement the health of your entire body! Can you tell I am obsessed?
