If you want to heal and improve your health quickly and efficiently, follow this routine:
* Every morning, drink roughly 16 ounces of celery juice on an empty stomach. Make sure it’s fresh, plain celery juice with no other ingredients. Celery juice is a medicinal, not a caloric drink, so you’ll still need breakfast afterward to power you through the morning. Simply wait at least 15 minutes after drinking your celery juice before consuming anything else.
* If you’re sensitive and 16 ounces is too much, start with a smaller amount and work your way up.
* Use organic celery whenever possible. If you’re using conventional celery, be sure to wash it especially well before juicing.
* If you find the taste of straight celery juice too strong, you can juice one cucumber and/or one apple with the celery. This is a great option as you get adjusted to the flavor. As you get used to it, keep increasing the ratio of celery; the greatest benefits come when celery juice is consumed on its own.
CELERY JUICE RECIPE
Plain, fresh celery juice is one of the most powerful healing juices available to us. This clean, green drink is the very best way to start your day. Make this juice a part of your daily routine, and soon you won’t want to go a day without it! You do need a juicer for this.
1 bunch celery
Rinse the celery and run it through a juicer. Drink immediately for best results.
Alternatively, you can chop the celery and blend it in a high-speed blender until smooth. Strain well and drink immediately.

Best Frozen Brand-I love Wymans and most big box grocery stores carries them in the frozen section.
- Atlantic Dulse– binds to mercury, lead, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and nickel, and crosses the blood brain barrier. Unlike other seaweeds, Atlantic Dulse is a powerful force for removing mercury on its own. Dulse goes into deep hidden places of the body, seeking out mercury, binding to it, and never releasing it until it leaves the body. 1/2 teaspoons of flakes in smoothie/daily, or an equal amount of strips if its whole leaf.
