My husband and I have been making and drinking celery juice for about a year. Our kids have been drinking for about 6 months . Although there are things we noticed almost immediately, my biggest impression is from a yearly scan. The little things made the difference daily, but the big things took longer .
This is a list of things we personally benefitted from over the course of last year.
1. My husband's horrible leg pain (sciatic nerve) went away after suffering for an entire year.
2. Gum disease went away. Cavities cleared up
3. Sade's mouth sores cleared up. He had been suffering from them for many months
4. Negev's light spot on his cheek disappeared. It had been growing larger, and more distinct until celery juice swept it away.
5. Negev's bottom lip on the right side has been swollen for a very long time. Years. Now the swelling has reduced and it is the same on both sides . The lips are a sign of the large intestines. So his ascending intestine was swollen, perhaps with viruses or bad bacteria. but not any longer.
6. Sex has improved for both of us.
7. My hair has never been this thick and healthy in my whole life.
8. I don't experience PMS symptoms at all any more . I used to get PMS pimples the week before my period, not any more. No more bloating, no tender boobs, no cramps, no crankiness, it just comes exactly on time every month. Celery juice even changed my schedule by 2 weeks. It righted what was off. Since then my period is more solid and feels much better.
9. Peeling, cracked heels. Gone
10. Eyesight improved dramatically
11. My husband used to have a big extended abdomen . Now he has a more even, flatter stomach
12. Intestines have been cleaned out of slimy junk . It took a few months for me and a year + for my husband .
13. Eye bags gone down for both of us
14. I go to the bathroom after every meal- 3x a day now. Way better digestion than I had before. No more constipation.
15. I have stronger nails.
16 . Better, optimistic mood. This happened almost immediately. No sign of depression or bad moods. You feel like no matter what you're faced with , you can handle it with ease. Nothing really gets us down anymore. If there is a sense of frustration or sadness sometimes, it goes away very quickly to be replaced by an optimistic feeling.
17. Weight loss, for both of us. Celery juice suppresses appetite by providing the right nutrients to the right places. we don't feel hungry for hours. Also because the liver is working way more efficiently, metabolism , digestion and energy work like they are supposed to. So the weight stays off ,we have lots of good energy throughout the day and we don't feel hungry.
18. Lots of energy throughout the day. I used to get really tired in the afternoon, but since I started on Celery juice, I only feel tired when I climb into bed. My husband doesn't have energy trouble anymore either. He works very hard physically and he used to suffer from aches, pains, and feeling tired all the time. Now he just continues without complaint.
19. Improved sleep. I used to get up a lot at night. Now i sleep until morning. A nice deep sleep.
20. Shalom didn't used to sleep well either, but now he does. He also used to snore every night, now he doesn't and it helps me to sleep too because his snoring doesn't keep me awake !
21. I don't crave bad foods anymore , such as chocolate, cheese, sweets, bread.
22. My breasts are lighter, less condensed. They used to be bigger and heavier. Now they feel light and I don't even wear a bra anymore ..
23. No more lower back aches. I used to have lower back aches because of adrenal problems. My lower back is fine and so is the rest of my body . No more aches, no more trouble to bend over, work, use my back. I feel 20 years younger.
24. My whole body is looser, less tight. My muscles ,my shoulders and my neck are no longer tight like they once were.
25. We no longer get sick like we used to. As soon as something like cold or flu comes our way, celery juice attacks and kills it right away. We also take medicinal mushrooms, herbs, vitamin c etc. , but celery juice brought health one notch higher.
26. My husband used to have heart palpitations , high blood pressure and borderline high blood sugar. That went away after starting celery juice. All of these conditions stem from a tired overloaded liver. Celery juice clears all that out. It helps the liver by killing viruses hiding out in there, strengthening and supporting the liver, and removing toxins that have been buried deep within. As a result, the heart, pancreas and other organs begin to work properly again.
27. Brain Fog. I used to have a heavy sense of walking around in a cloud. I figured it was from having kids and dealing with raising them and feeling tired all the time. But even after time had passed , the brain fog didn't go away . But as soon as I started drinking celery juice, I felt immediately better. Since then the fog just continues to clear up more and more.
28. Skin looks much better. Healthier, smoother, less damaged due to age, injuries, or toxicity.
29. Improved circulation. My husband has always suffered from cold feet. No he can walk around in the winter evenings without socks. That was always unheard of before. He had trouble with circulation before, but now his heart beats strong and his blood and lymph travels to all the outlying areas to warm them and bring in nutrients.
30. Just as the year was wrapping up, I began having vivid dreams. For many years I don't recall having a dream when I wake up, but just lately I have been waking up every morning with some crazy new dream that I remember completely. I think this has to do with the brain fog clearing up. My brain is being emptied of the crud that was causing blockages. Heavy metals and toxic build-up were blocking thought processes and neutron activity. These toxins are being flushed out, loosening up connections and allowing for more activity in different parts of my brain.
All this in only one year!! I can't wait for the next year to see how much more health benefits come our way!!
Sometimes it's not easy to change our eating habits or any habits we've acquired over the years. But with a little practice and dedication, we can form new better habits. Yes, it takes time, yes, it means having to step out of your comfort zone, and yes, most people around you won't understand or be supportive, but if we can focus on the "why" , all of that becomes background noise.
Many people ask me how to get started. So i made a "cheat sheet" that makes it pretty simple to get started. I made two, one in English and one in Hebrew.
