I had been wanting to add daily celery juice to my routine for years. I first learned about it during a Tony Robbins seminar. (I know, cheesy, but we all did wacky things in 2020.) The people in that community rave about celery juice and the man behind the recent glory of celery juice, The Medical Medium, is one of Tony’s presenters.
I talked about it for a while, but it seemed like such a hassle so I just didn’t get around to trying. Between lemon water, workouts, coffee, feeding the baby, getting the older kids lunches ready and making breakfast I couldn’t imagine adding anything else to the morning. A few months ago my husband asked if I would be willing to make it for him daily. This was exactly what I needed because doing something for him is a no-brainer while doing something for myself seems like a stretch. (Wives/moms know what I mean.) So I started for him, then myself and it is now a daily staple in our house. Our daughter started drinking it around 4 months old and actually enjoys it now at 7 months!
I am not going to go into detail about why almost anyone would benefit from drinking celery juice daily, on an empty stomach. If you want to learn how it can help you, check out the Medical Medium’s website…
“People are healing from all kinds of acute and chronic illnesses, including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, SIBO, constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, blood sugar issues, migraines, acid reflux, high blood pressure, addictions, adrenal issues, gout, allergies, autoimmune conditions, and countless others, from drinking plain celery juice daily.”
Now that is an incredible list! For us, it has been incredibly cleansing which helps with energy, bloating and weight loss. We quickly noticed that the celery juice gave us more energy than our daily coffee. It may be helping with allergies as I have been able to cut my allergy medicine by half.
I encourage anyone reading this to at least give it a try and if it seems like too much work, do it for someone else and then make extra for you!
In order to save time each day I clean the celery the night before so that first thing I do when I get downstairs in the morning is start the juicer. It is important that you drink it on an empty stomach and wait 15-30 minutes before having anything else. When I am done drinking the juice I set a timer and make the lemon water for the whole family. I set another timer after that, then have my coffee with MCT oil. If only my cigarette smoking, coffee guzzling younger self could see me now!
Let me know if you are a celery juice drinker and how it has made you feel!
