In October last year I was invited to stay at Port Lympne with Wyse London. At dinner that evening I sat next to a lovely lady (who had THE most incredible skin) and we ended up chatting about all things health. At the time I was still cutting out sugar because of my Candida overgrowth and she told me she that she had been drinking celery juice every day for 6 months. She had suffered with the Epstein Bar Virus for months on end and had done a lot of research into ways to get her health back. She told me her secret to getting back on track (and her incredible glowing complexion) was drinking celery juice every morning. At first I thought, yuck, I’m not sure I could stomach that first thing, but I was willing to try anything to feel better, so I bought a load of celery and got started. I can honestly say that I haven’t stopped since that day. Bearing in mind that I am a fad vitamin pill taker, the fact that I am still drinking celery juice every morning, 4 months later is a small miracle!
So why do I drink it?
I could list endless benefits here with the help from online pieces about celery juice, but are we really to believe them if the scientific studies on the benefits of drinking celery juice are scarce? This article includes what the science experts have to say, but let’s forget the science for a minute. Why am I still drinking something that frankly, doesn’t taste delicious, 4 months on? Because it makes me feel so good. I haven’t suffered any bloating or stomach pain since introducing sugar back into my diet and it seems to give my tummy a settled feeling about 20 minutes after drinking it. I can’t really tell you more than that, it just makes me feel better…
The practical stuff
I don’t know about you, but if something is a bit of faff to make, I am unlikely to stick to it and lose interest quickly. Weekday mornings are enough of a rush… So I have figured out a way to make sure my celery juice is quick and easy to make.
I thought that I would link to a few conflicting pieces on the benefits of drinking celery juice. That way you can make your own mind up, but for me, seeing is believing and I really have seen a difference.
