7 day celery juice, what happened?
Hey, Hope you are all doing well.
So as you know I have embarked on the juice trend, Celery juice.
May I add that none of the benefits I am listing is scientifically proven however it all stems from research, always do your own homework first.
My reason for this is the inflammation, I would rather try 100 natural things then use then steroids given to me.
I have listed below the few reasons why I wanted to try it out (non of it is scientifically proven, it stems from research) :
1. Celery Juice heals and activates the gut by restoring hydrochloric acid which helps us digest things faster and more efficiently. Celery juice helps raise stomach acid, which is necessary to help break down food, especially protein. Especially good for those on a high protein diet. If our stomach acid is low, the body has to use more resources to digest that food, often leaving us feeling tired and lethargic. Celery juice has the ability to significantly replenish depleted levels of gastric mucus that is needed in the stomach lining to heal and prevent ulcers and acid reflux.
2. Celery Juice lowers cholesterol. Celery contains a compound called 3-n-butylphthalide (BuPh) that has been reported to have lipid-lowering action, reducing the bad cholesterol (LDL) in our bloodstream.
3.Celery Juice is a natural anti-inflammatory. It contains Polyacetylene which reduces chronic joint pain, gout, and rheumatoid arthritis. Not only does it soothe the body, but it is also believed to soothe the nerves, with calming and relaxing properties.
4. Celery Juice fights infection. Research shows that compounds found in celery contain powerful antimicrobial properties that fight infections and naturally boost immunity. Celery juice reduces uric acid and stimulates urine production, especially useful in fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract and reproductive organs, helping prevent UTIs, bladder and kidney disorders.
So I have completed 7 days with this and what have I found, pretty much no difference yet. I still feel the same, no increased levels of energy or anything else. However ONE thing I have noticed, I am not sure if it's the juice or myself getting better is the poop (sorry). So before my flare up I would regularly without fail use the toilet at 6:30am. whilst I have been sick this hasn't happened and I have actually recently had constipation.
Day 5 I had a great poop which continued to Day 6 , as if my body is beginning to self regulate again. Day 7 was not as good but wasn't bad either.
So the ONLY difference for now was poop lol.
I will continue with it and will update day 14 or earlier if I have any significant changes.
