This week marked my 50th straight day of drinking celery juice. I embarked on this health journey because I have been a follower of Anthony William. After reading his book Liver Rescue, I decided to commit to doing the Liver Rescue Morning to see how it will improve my health. Specifically, I am hoping to lower my cholesterol, which at it’s highest was 314, despite my healthy lifestyle of clean eating and much exercise.
This program is not always easy. It takes a big commitment to make the celery juice every morning. Sometimes even finding celery in the store can be difficult. I have stuck with it, even when traveling. I have been to Mexico, where I was able to use a Vita-mix to prepare my juice down there. Even on long weekends away, I have brought my juicer with me. This past weekend I was in Palm Springs and Palm Desert and was lucky to have found a local juice bar in Palm Springs, and a Whole Foods in Palm Desert that served fresh celery juice. So I can say it is getting easier to find, even when bringing your own juicer ins not so convenient.
Although I still have until July until my next blood panel, I wanted to give a progress report of how I am feeling after 50 days.
First and foremost I can tell you my digestion has changed dramatically. This is something I was able to notice almost immediately after starting this program. I have had 50 days of bowel movements! While this may be “TMI” for some, this is huge for me. I have always had a slow transit elimination. Going to the bathroom every other day and sometimes every 3 days was normal for me. Having a daily bowel movement. Many people ask me if this type of cleanse will have you running to the bathroom, and I can safely say this is not the case.
I suffer from mild eczema. I have seen improvements on my skin as well. It has not completely gone away but I have had improvements in most of my flare up areas. I still have some itching, but that may also be due to chlorine from swimming 4 times a week. I also feel like the skin on my face is clearer and my eyes are more fresh with less black circles and puffiness.
I have a lost 10 pounds. Although weight loss was not on my list of reasons for doing this program, it just happened to be a secondary effect. Don’t get me wrong, I am not mad about this at all. Over the last several years, I have struggled to be in the five pound zone that I feel most comfortable in. No matter how clean my diet was or how intense my workouts were, I could not break into that zone. Since drinking the celery juice, I have been comfortably in that zone again. Even on some days I am below it, but I have never gone back above it. I definitely attribute this to my improved digestion.
Other than that, all I can say is that I just feel good. I feel energized, I do not get fatigued as easily when swimming. I feel an overall sense of wellness.
I still have until July for my next blood panel, so I will keep you up to date on those results. If you have any questions about this program, feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
