Utilizing celery juice for health and wellness
A juicer is necessary as opposed to a blender or a Vita Mix. Any juicer will work- we’ve been quite pleased with our Champion juicer, that we have owned for an extensive period of time.
One stalk of celery has the following nutrients in it: 16 mg calcium, 30 mg magnesium, 11 mg phosphorus, .1 mg iron, 50 mg sodium, 136 mg 110 I. U. of vitamin A, and trace amounts of some B complex vitamins.
Here are some great juice combinations to use celery with:
Celery and apple.
Celery and carrots.
Celery and pineapple.
Celery, pineapple, white grapes and some lemon with the rind removed.
Celery and papaya juice for asthma.
Celery, parsley and asparagus juice for kidney disorders.
Celery and parsley juice for fevers, gout or arthritis.
Celery is a great source of natural plant-based sodium. Dr. Bernard Jensen, the great chiropractor and naturopathic physician, stated that celery with its high sodium content was the natural antagonist and solution to calcium out of solution such as in osteoarthritis.
Celery juice is naturally alkalizing and can be utilized to help with allergies.
The high amount of mineral salts in celery makes it very alkalizing and can help to counter the influences of blood poisoning with the acidic conditions that this condition brings to the body.
The alkaline ash minerals help to calm and relax the body. Often children with hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder tend to have systems that are excessively acidic in nature. By removing excessively acidic foods such as sugar and refined carbohydrates and instead giving the child mineral rich foods such as celery juice, improvements can soon be noticed in behavioral patterns.
Natural plant-based sodium helps keep us young and active, and the muscles limber and pliable. Whenever there is stiffness in the joints and creaking or cracking in the knees, we know we are lacking in sodium. Sodium is the one element that most people lack. When the tissues, joints, and arteries get hard, there’s too much calcium in the body, and a softer element is needed. The element that counteracts calcium best is sodium. It helps keep calcium in solution. It has protective properties that are beneficial to both the brain and nervous system. Celery is an excellent food for people suffering from arthritis, neuritis, and rheumatism. It can also help to clear up high blood pressure. Sodium is one of the chemical elements needed so much in the walls of the stomach and in the intestinal tract. Celery is particularly good for these parts of the body.
Celery aids digestion, counteract acidosis, halts fermentation, and purifies the bloodstream.
When we are told that too much sodium is a problem, they are referring to land-based salt, where all the other trace minerals have been stripped out, leaving us only with sodium chloride.
