Pineapple Juice

This mermaid loves to sip pineapple juice. Nutrients from raw juice go to the bloodstream fast that way I can keep swimming through this crazy sea of life.

After juicing celery juice and Medical Medium, Anthony William, saying don’t add anything to it to get results, I am inspired to juice simpler.

Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which is an anti-inflammatory and helps aid digestion by breaking down proteins. Pineapple contains vitamin C, which is good for our immune system, builds collagen, supports and strengthens our blood vessels, skin, tendons, and ligaments. Other vitamins and minerals in pineapple are B6, folate (According to the Mayo Clinic, B9 is important in red blood cell formation, cell growth and function. You will see it in many prenatal vitamins.), and potassium. Some types of salt we eat are bad for us including sea salt according to Medical Medium. He says celery will clean out the salt. Pineapple will reduce salt in our systems too due to the potassium. Potassium also lowers blood pressure. Some of this information is from The Ultimate Book of Modern Juicing by Mimi Kirk. I will definitely write a review on the book after I read it.

Pineapple Juice Recipe
½ pineapple

Yield: 16-ounces

Cut off skin and dice half an organic pineapple. I juice with an Omega MMV700. The smaller the pieces I put in the machine the more juice I produce and less pulp is left in the drum lid.

Thank you for reading from so many different countries. Appreciate! 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!
