Celery Juice Day 29

I’ve been drinking celery juice for 29 days and feel pretty good.

One thing about juicing is I forget to drink my daily water. Celery juice being so watery I didn’t drink my usual amount. I looked to see how much water I should be drinking and tried a couple of water calculators. I found using the general rule of drinking half your body weight in water ounces per day is almost exactly what one calculator recommended for me. The other calculator recommended less water. It’s easier to go by one’s weight and cut it in half to figure out how many ounces to drink.

Another thing I changed this week is having warm lemon water rather than room temperature. I’m not sure what the difference it makes, but I did mention in a previous blog the body’s ideal digesting point is about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. If you eat something colder or hotter, your body will warm or cool the food or drink. In my opinion, you don’t want to shock your system. Think of drinking warm water like putting a heating pad on your muscles to relax them. I heated a cup of water in the kettle for a minute while I squeezed a lemon into the mug.

As a reminder, drink your lemon water first thing in the morning. Anthony William of Medical Medium recommends 32-ounces of water. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes and ideally 30 minutes before drinking your 16-ounces of celery juice. He says wait 30 minutes before eating breakfast. I wait an hour then have a strawberry smoothie. This week, I juiced the celery juice at night. Then I juiced my own apple, nectarine, and lemon for the smoothie. Also, keep the mornings fat-free­—no dairy, no oils, and no animal products. Avoid problematic foods that feed the viruses—dairy, eggs, gluten, corn, soy, pork, nutritional yeast, canola oil, natural flavors, vinegar, and fermented foods. I did make tofu burgers this week. Do your best.

As I’ve said before celery juice is gentle. Mostly, I sweated out toxins and had a few annoying dreams. And I had one headache on day two. Everybody is different. I hope it goes as easy for you.

This part might seem a little random. People seem a little out of it now. Some people tell me they are scared. One thing I noticed is celery juice releases anger or frustration by cleansing out the liver. Medical Medium mentions celery juice helping with emotions. In his Celery Juice book William says, “Different viral strains have different appetites for different foods.” Everybody has a different viral load in their liver that feeds on anything from pesticides to herbicides to all the foods I mentioned to avoid. Then neurotoxins are released into the bloodstream to the brain resulting in mild forms of depression, bipolar behavior, and anxiety. He stresses eggs to be bad for people with emotional struggles. I had never heard that. Very interesting.

I found a yoga move on Yoga Lifestyle with Melissa that helps clean out anger and frustration from the liver. And it’s so simple.

I just want to say to some young people who have crossed my path that it is okay to have emotions and feelings. It is better to get out your true feelings than to keep them inside or you will destroy your health.

I remember I was chaperoning a choir and one of the soloist’s voice cracked. She came back stage and cried. A bunch of girls huddled around and hugged her. It’s okay if your voice cracks. It happens. Those things usually happen once. And you know what? I remember it happened to my mom as a professional singer and she would make the crack sound like she meant it. So sometimes crack is okay. Ha. Ha.

I remember when I was in my voice class in college and I forgot my words. I mentioned it to my friend’s sister and she was horrified. I don’t recall exactly what I said, but I’m sure I shrugged it off. The upside is it happened in class and not in concert. I also find that these things happen once then don’t happen again. I think that’s what my voice teacher said.

I hope you will join me in drinking celery juice. Your mental health affects your physical health and vice versa. Eating clean might make you more aware of the world. I’ve noticed some young people don’t want to be awake. I realize most people will never wake up. I enjoy being awake because the truth is stranger than fiction.

To all those who are fearful I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Bible verses. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (NIV Study Bible, Joshua 1:9)

Happy Juicing!

Celery Juice Day 22

It took me sixteen days to get into the Medical Medium celery juice routine.

In the morning, I squeeze a lemon into 16-ounces of water and drink that quickly. Then half an hour later, I juice my celery juice and drink that slowly. I hold the juice in my mouth to get the enzymes working and for some of the sodium cluster salts to get into my bloodstream. Then I continue my morning routine. About an hour later, I make a strawberry smoothie. The smoothie really helps me feel better. Yeah it’s a lot to add to my morning routine, but it’s only for 30-days. I did juice at night two nights in a row and really liked it so I could drink a green drink after juicing celery and juice for the next day’s smoothie. I will revisit this routine from time to time. Because the salts heal the body in ways we don’t know because it’s being proactive.

About a year and half ago I tried celery juice I think a couple of times and I didn’t like it and it clogged the juicer. Then I tried celery juice for two weeks this summer and called it quits. Then I started to read Celery Juice by Anthony William and got back on the celery juice train. I’m glad I did because now it’s not a big deal and my liver is getting cleaner. And I think the heavy metals are getting cleaned out. I can’t say I’m thinking clearer, but I think the headache was a sign of heavy metals being disarmed. William claims cluster salts defuse the charge of heavy metals.

Like I mentioned before, the first time I drank two weeks of celery juice I had little lightning headaches from allergies which went away from a day or two of drinking celery. The headache from the second time around was a different kind of headache that lasted one day. I’m all good now. I have no negatives to report. Celery juice is a gentle way to detox.

William does say that some people don’t notice what celery juice was doing for them until they stop drinking it. All raw slow juice makes me feel better. But celery juice made me feel bloaty when I only did two weeks, but William says don’t blame celery juice. That’s your body detoxifying. So any negative side effects are part of the cleansing.

Some things he says you might experience while drinking celery juice are acid reflux, bloating, body odor, coldness or chills, headaches and migraines, mood shifts, mouth and tongue sensations, nausea and vomiting, rashes, itching, and breakouts, thirst, and weight loss. But he says not to blame celery juice. I won’t go through all the possible healing reactions but with bloating celery juice is alleviating bloat, not causing it. It could be the toxins coming out of the liver and cleaning out bacteria in the intestinal track. Many people will see this as a negative and give up on doing something as easy as drinking celery juice.

I remember when Fit For Life by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond came out. I loved that book. My mom and I went to her friend’s house and the mother had the book laying on the kitchen table. My mom asked how she liked the book. The overweight, unhealthy-looking lady made excuses about not feeling well doing the things the book talked about. Eating healthy and juicing is a lifestyle. Meaning it should be part of our routine. I’d rather eat fresh fruit, have a smoothie, or drink raw juice in the morning, than to have to take pills.

I hope this encourages you to juice. See you with an update of Celery Juice Day 29.

And thanks for stopping by. I’m enjoying reading your blogs too. Many of you have gone through a long, better-health journey. Here’s to our health!

Happy Juicing!
