It can easily be made in a big batch and stored up to 2 days. in the fridge. Give it a try and enjoy the naturally detoxifying benefits of this amazing superfood.
I started the Celery Juice Challenge after my visit to Miami for Thanksgiving.
Every time I travel, mostly to Florida, where my family is, I indulge in comfort food that I don’t eat every day and unfortunately, this is not the type of food that I’m used to eating now. So that causes a lot of bloating, causes a lot of problems with my digestive system and overall, it’s not a good feel. So, because of that and after a lot of research I decided to try the Celery Juice challenge which a lot of people have been talking about.
Some people can call it a fad diet some people can call it a trend, but generally there is nothing wrong with drinking 16oz of Celery juice in the morning on an empty stomach hoping that you will feel better and get your digestion back on track.
So that is exactly what I did. For the next three weeks, I was very diligent about drinking 16oz of celery juice that I made using my Vitamix blender and
To my surprise, I started to feel more energized, had less bloating, regular bowel movements, a lot of elimination. I started to break out on my skin which (I didn’t know this at the time) is part of the detoxification process. The salt crystals in the celery juice help detoxify the liver and the toxins have to come out somewhere. So, I started to feel less bloating, my skin cleared up after a few days, I was sleeping better. I felt like I was having coffee in the mornings because I wanted to have coffee in the mornings and not necessarily because I needed to fight or get rid of that sluggish feeling. Overall, it has been an amazing addition to my diet, that along with healthy food during the day, exercise and a good amount of sleep has helped me drastically.
Fast forward to now, and I am not as strict with the celery juice as I was in the beginning. I don’t drive myself crazy with these schedules, I do it if I have time because I know it makes me feel better, but I don’t beat myself up if I miss a day or a weekend. I think it’s an amazing way to help your body feel better, for your digestive system to work better which in turn helps absorbs the nutrients in your body from the foods that you eat. I think it’s great and there is a lot of information on the celery juice challenge in the book, “The Medical Medium” which is linked below.
Now it’s your turn
I’ve included a quick way to make your celery juice when you don’t have a juicer at home. It’s always important to buy your celery organic as with other fruits such as bananas. Buying celery organic is better for you, the pesticides are not there which makes for a better experience and for a lot more health benefits.
So, I encourage everyone to try. As I always say on all of my posts and on Instagram, I am not a doctor. I am a health coach in training, I am a mom, I am a wife and I am a woman that wants to be healthy and do the best for herself and for her family and have the best health that I am able to have. I encourage you to read more about it, make an educated decision as to if the celery juice challenge is right for you.
I also encourage you if you’re going to start drinking celery juice in the mornings to consult your doctor before you start making any drastic changes to your diet.
Overall, I am a huge advocate for celery juice in the morning and I hope everyone either tries it or at least learns more about the health benefits of celery juice.

Celery juice prompts the liver to increase bile production and strengthens the stomach’s hydrochloric acid production. Old undigested, rotting protein and rancid fats trapped at the bottom of the stomach and in the small intestinal tract can then be broken down, helping
5. Helps Eczema & Psoriasis
The undiscovered cluster salts in celery juice break down the cell membranes of the pathogens responsible for eczema, eventually killing and destroying them.

Celery juice enhances your entire body’s immune system. White blood cells absorb the sodium cluster salts in celery juice through their cell structure & then use them as an offense mechanism, not just a defense mechanism.

Celery juice is an antiseptic to streptococcus bacteria, which is the true unknown cause of Urinary Tract Infections.

Celery juice helps stabilize blood pressure by cleansing the liver of Liver Troublemakers (see Liver Rescue for info), which leads to healthier blood that can be easily pumped by the heart.

Celery juice helps cleanse and strengthen the liver and breaks up undigested rotting proteins & fats that contribute to a sluggish liver, which is behind high cholesterol.

Your liver’s individual immune system relies on the undiscovered sodium cluster salts inside of celery.
