Celery Juice, How Detox Actually Works & Food as Medicine.
Are you curious about the celery juice trend? Is it a super food or a super fad? In episode 14, I am joined by Ali Miller, RD, LD, CDE who is hitting us with the facts with her food-as-medicine approach that is grounded in nature and supported by scientific evidence. We talk through the misinformation, the redeeming qualities of celery and why you may want to reconsider downing gallons of celery juice each and every week.
From debunking some of the massive claims to talking through why some folks may be having great results drinking daily celery juice, Ali shares more about how the body’s natural detox pathways work. Learn how you are better off consuming foods rich in sulfur, glycine, glutathione, cysteine, and nutrients that drive phase 2 encapsulation with ample fiber in the diet (that’s right celery juice contains none of these things) to support the excretion of toxins from your body to actually detox vs. prevent detox process for short-term outcomes.
Finally, Ali shares more about her food-as-medicine approach when it comes to anxiety, depression and cognitive dysfunction.
I hope you enjoy this episode and if you have anecdotal evidence or personal experiences with celery juice that you would like to share, please feel free to use the comments below, we’d love to hear from you.
