Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog articles: Healing Foods. I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
For decades #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Anthony William Medical Medium has been recommending that people drink 16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach every morning. Today, millions of people around the world are participating in this healing practice and experiencing the benefits for themselves.
You might be wondering why 16 ounces is recommended specifically. The reason is because when you drink celery juice it has quite a distance to travel. To receive as many of the healing benefits of celery juice as possible, this herbal extraction must travel from the mouth, through the digestive system, then into the liver and even eventually the brain.
On its journey through your body, the celery juice faces many obstacles, from remnants of toothpaste and mouthwash, to bacteria, viruses, unproductive fungus, rancid fats, and much more. Drinking 16 ounces of straight celery juice is the amount needed for the juice to overcome these obstacles and reach the parts of the body it needs to in order to bring its full healing benefits.
That doesn’t mean you can’t drink less. Many people start with drinking 8 ounces or even less and build up to 16 ounces over time. That is fantastic. Others feel best when they drink 32 ounces. That provides even more healing support for your body.
Celery juice, when consumed in the right way and the right amount consistently, is a powerful and miraculous healing remedy and millions of people are noticing the benefits it provides, such as clearer skin, improved digestion, less bloating, sustained energy, better mental clarity, weight loss, and stable moods, just to name a few. People are healing from all kinds of acute and chronic illnesses, including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, SIBO, constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, blood sugar issues, migraines, acid reflux, high blood pressure, addictions, adrenal issues, gout, allergies, autoimmune conditions, and countless others, from drinking plain celery juice daily.

This Lemon Ginger Honey Water is refreshing and hydrating. It’s the perfect drink to begin your day with (try it 30 minutes or more before or after celery juice), for an afternoon pick me up, or to sip on over the day. When you drink this healing tonic when you first wake up, it will help your liver flush out toxins it’s collected for release throughout the night while giving your liver and body the critical hydration and glucose it needs to begin your day.
Lemons and limes contain micro mineral salts that break down pathogens such as unproductive bacteria, mold, yeast, and fungus to help protect your liver’s immune system. The rich calcium levels in lemons and limes binds to the vitamin C within them, and both of these enter into the liver, where they waken a stagnant, sluggish, fatty liver, helping loosen and disperse fat cells.
Ginger aids is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heart burn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning.
Raw honey contains a combination of sugar that the liver needs desperately and vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients—hundreds of which are not on the record with medical research and science. Raw honey is antimicrobial: antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, all packaged into one. When it heads to the liver in its broken down, assimilated state, it packs a punch, giving the liver everything it needs at once: the liver’s immune system strengthens instantly.
Lemon Ginger Honey Water
1 to 2 inches fresh ginger
2 cups water
2 teaspoons raw honey
Grate the ginger into 2 cups of water. Allow the water to steep for at least 15 minutes and ideally longer. You can even leave it steeping in the fridge overnight if you wish. Strain the ginger out of the water when you’re ready to drink it, add the lemon juice and raw honey.
• As an alternative to grating the ginger, try chopping it into a few small pieces and squeezing them in a garlic press—it will act like a mini juicer. Be sure to take out the “pulp” from the press afterward, chop it finely, and add it to the water, too.
• It can be helpful to prepare a big batch of ginger water in advance to sip as desired. For best results, add the honey and lemon just prior to consuming.

This sorbet can be made year-round with frozen peaches from the store or peaches you froze at the height of summer yourself. The sweetness of the peaches goes perfectly with the zing of ginger and the brightness of Meyer lemon juice. If Meyer lemons aren’t available, substitute regular lemon juice and adjust the honey until the desired sweetness is reached.
Peaches: The skin of peaches has a quality that’s sticky to toxins and poisons inside the intestinal tract. These skins cling to deep-seated pockets of debris; old, putrefied food; and mucus inside the small intestine and colon, driving them out to make room for friendly bacteria and microorganisms and allow for better nutrient absorption. The juicy nature of a peach or nectarine is unique in the sense that it’s a combination of fruit acid along with mineral salts and sugars, with an astringent phytochemical compound close to the pit that allows for rejuvenation close to the liver’s inner core.
Ginger: One of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heart burn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning.
Peach Ginger Sorbet
1 thumb knuckle–sized piece of ginger, peeled
4 cups frozen sliced peaches
1 tablespoon Meyer lemon juice
1 tablespoon raw honey (see Tips)
½ cup water
Place the ginger into the food processor and process until finely minced. Add the frozen peaches, lemon juice, and honey to the food processor and process everything together for 2 to 3 minutes until smoothly combined.
Stream in the water slowly, using just enough to keep everything moving. It can also be helpful to stop and scrape down the sides of the food processor. The sorbet is done when a smooth, even texture has formed.
This sorbet will be on the softer side. For a firmer consistency, transfer the sorbet to a container and freeze it for 3 to 4 hours prior to serving.
Makes 4 servings
*If using store-bought frozen peaches, make sure they don’t contain citric acid.
*If you like things extra sweet, feel free to increase the amount of honey until the taste is exactly what you want it to be!

Sometimes simple is all you need—or have time for. When you’re running out the door or too busy to follow a recipe, you don’t need to sacrifice nutrition or flavor for convenience. Instead, pull together these quick and easy food combinations specifically geared to support your healing process. Better yet, prep a few of these pairs ahead so that when time is of the essence, all you need to do is grab them and go.
Cauliflower florets + Apple slices: this combination brings inflammation down in the thyroid while providing new memory to the thyroid’s cells, teaching them to be independent after they may have grown sluggish from thyroid medication dependency.
Tomatoes + Spinach: together, these foods strengthen the liver at the same time that they flush the lymphatic system and build up the immune system to fend off a viral load that may target the thyroid.
Celery + Dates: combining critical mineral salts with high-quality, bioavailable glucose, this is a powerful adrenal restorative to provide backup superpower for the thyroid.
Banana + Dulse flakes: iodine, potassium, and sodium together in this snack strengthen the entire endocrine system and central nervous system against neurotoxins and their ill effects.
Kale + Mango: this combination of alkaloids and carotenes allows them to easily enter the thyroid, helping to stop the growth of nodules and cysts there.
Pear + Arugula: wonderful for protecting the thyroid from atrophy and shrinkage. Together, these foods boost the thyroid’s frequency abilities.
Wild blueberries + Papaya: provide fighting power to stop, reduce, and prevent thyroid tumors (both cancerous and benign). Restore thyroid tissue after part of the gland has been surgically removed or killed off through radioactive iodine treatment.
Tangerine + Raspberries: as a team, these foods help prevent the calcium loss that can occur as the thyroid virus forces the body to use its calcium stores to wall off the virus in nodules and cysts, both in the thyroid itself and throughout the body. Help prevent osteoporosis.

These days, the best recipes are the ones that can be customized to meet everyone’s needs. These curry noodles can be eaten raw or cooked, fat-free or with coconut milk added, and no matter how you choose to prepare it, this dish is easy and delicious. This is an ideal option if you are juggling the necessity of cooking for others.
In Liver Rescue, I share how each of these ingredients can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…
Zucchini: Very similar to cucumber in certain ways, as it is also a fruit that’s helpful for liver hydration, which allows the liver to store micro pockets of water that it can later release back into the bloodstream during moments of chronic dehydration in your life. Zucchini have a mild liver purging effect, allowing the liver to squeeze out poisonous troublemakers safely. It’s also soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.
Turmeric (in the curry powder): Turmeric is a natural wonder in the healing world and has been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-depressant since ancient times. The main component in turmeric, curcumin, has phenomenal anti-cancer properties and has been known to help to inhibit prostate, skin, colon, mouth, esophageal, lung, stomach, pancreatic, liver, and breast cancer.
Yellow Curry Noodles Two Ways
2 zucchinis, peeled
1 red bell pepper, finely sliced
¼ onion, finely sliced
3 cups kelp noodles
1 ½ cups coconut milk (optional)
½ teaspoon sea salt (optional)
¼ cup basil
¼ cup cilantro
YELLOW CURRY SAUCE
3 cups diced zucchini
4 Medjool dates, pitted
1 garlic clove
½ cup cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons coconut aminos (optional, see Tips)
½ tablespoon minced ripe jalapeño
½ teaspoon curry powder
Using a julienne peeler or spiralizer, turn the zucchinis and the carrot into “noodles.” Place these noodles into a large bowl along with the red bell pepper, onion, and kelp noodles.
Prepare the Yellow Curry Sauce by blending all the sauce ingredients until smooth and slightly warmed. For raw curry noodles, pour the Yellow Curry Sauce over the prepared vegetable and kelp noodles, tossing well to combine.
For cooked curry noodles, combine the Yellow Curry Sauce, prepared vegetable and kelp noodles, coconut milk, and sea salt in a large pot. Cook over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the vegetable noodles are tender and well combined. Serve the yellow curry noodles topped with basil, cilantro, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
Makes 2 servings
Coconut aminos are available in many natural food stores and online. If you prefer, you can leave them out altogether and substitute ¹⁄³ cup chopped dulse or ¼ teaspoon sea salt instead.

Why? Because celery juice, when consumed in the right way, is a powerful and miraculous healing remedy and people are noticing the benefits it provides, such as clearer skin, improved digestion, less bloating, sustained energy, better mental clarity, weight loss, and stable moods, just to name a few.

This recipe will leave even the hungriest lunch eaters satisfied. Tender, baked falafel are wrapped in lettuce and loaded with a rainbow of vegetables, and then dunked into the complex flavors of the Mint Tahini Sauce. If mint doesn’t appeal to you, feel free to substitute any fresh herb that does, such as basil, cilantro, parsley, or tarragon.
Onions: Very similar to garlic, onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver. Onions have a disinfecting quality for the liver, keeping it from becoming inflamed. They also improve the temperature control or “thermostat” of the liver so it can heat and cool itself properly.
Parsley: Its phytochemicals have anti-troublemaker effects that dislodge poisons and catapult them out of your liver. The intense green pigment in parsley contains an alkaloid specifically for liver rejuvenation; tissue in the liver improves when exposed to these alkaloid compounds. Parsley has a purging effect on gallbladder sludge, though not on gallstones. Its phytochemical compounds settle at the bottom of the gallbladder, where the sludge lies, to do their good.
Baked Falafel Salad With Mint Tahini Sauce
3 cups cooked chickpeas
1 cup roughly diced red onion
4 garlic cloves
½ cup loosely packed parsley
½ cup loosely packed cilantro
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons cumin
2 heads of butter lettuce (optional, see Tips)
½ cucumber, sliced
½ cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
½ cup shredded red cabbage
½ cup shredded carrot
MINT TAHINI SAUCE
1 cup diced zucchini
½ Medjool date, pitted
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh dill
2 tablespoons fresh mint
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup water
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place half of the chickpeas into the bottom of the food processor. Then add the diced onion, garlic cloves, parsley, cilantro, and sea salt. On top, add the remaining chickpeas. Pulse all of the ingredients together in the food processor until they are well combined.
Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop out the chickpea mixture, shape it into balls, and place them on the baking trays spaced 2 inches apart. Gently pat the tops of the balls to flatten them into a falafel shape. Bake the falafel for 35 to 40 minutes, until the tops are turning golden brown and they are firm on the outside while still tender in the middle. Handle them gently!
To make the Mint Tahini Sauce, blend all of the ingredients together until smoothly combined. Serve the falafel on top of a salad of butter lettuce or in individual butter lettuce cups topped with veggies and Mint Tahini Sauce.
Makes 2 to 4 servings
* These falafel can also be served in a gluten-free, corn-free tortilla of your choice.
* If you’d prefer to keep this dish completely fat-free, skip the Mint Tahini Sauce and try pairing the falafel with the Spicy Lime “Vinaigrette” on page 388 of Liver Rescue instead.

This delicious sweet potato pizza crust is a wonderful vehicle for any of your favorite pizza toppings, such as olives, onion, fresh herbs, arugula, and an assortment of fresh vegetables. Not only that, but the sweet potatoes in the crust also offer their own healing benefits.
Sweet potatoes are an important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. Similar to regular potatoes, they help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.
Sweet Potato Pizza Crust
For the crust:
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (yields about 1 cup cooked sweet potato)
3 tbsp arrowroot starch
3 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup tomato paste
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2-3 tbsp water
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Toppings (any combination of these):
1/2 red onion, finely sliced
3-4 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
1/4 small zucchini, sliced
Handful of fresh arugula
Handful of fresh basil
Preheat oven to 400F.
Place the diced sweet potatoes in a steamer. Cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool.
Place the sweet potatoes in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth. Measure out 1 cup of mashed sweet potato and leave the rest for another recipe.
Add the sweet potato to a bowl with the coconut flour, arrowroot starch, dried oregano and sea salt. Mix until uniform. Set aside.
Make the marinara sauce by combining the tomato paste, dried oregano, dried thyme, water sea salt and black pepper in a bowl and whisking until mixed.
Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place the dough on top. Using your hands, spread the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until hardened on top.
Top the pizza with the marinara sauce and your choice of toppings. Bake for another 10 minutes, until browned on the edges. Add fresh arugula or basil and serve immediately.
Makes 1 pizza

They are jam packed with healing ingredients and can be enjoyed right after making or prepare them in advance and freeze them so they are ready right when you need them. Enjoy!
Tomato & Olive Pockets
4-5 medium-sized potatoes (about 1.5 lb)
1 tbsp potato starch
3 tbsp tapioca flour (more if needed)
Salt and pepper
1 tsp dried oregano (optional)
1/2 - 1 tsp water (if needed)
Tomato sauce ingredients:
1/2 cup tomato paste

1/3 cup finely diced zucchini
5-6 olives, finely diced
2-3 basil leaves, finely chopped
Sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Place the potatoes in a large pot fitted with a steaming basket. Add a few inches of water and steam until soft, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and cool for 10-15 minutes, until cool enough to handle.
Place the potatoes in a large, flat-bottomed bowl or pot and mash until they are broken down. Add the sea salt, pepper, potato starch, tapioca flour, oregano and basil, and mash until the flour and starch are well combined. If the mixture is very dry, add a bit of warm water. If the mixture is very wet, add a bit more tapioca flour. The dough should be pliable and not stick to your fingers. Set aside while you make the filling.
Make the tomato sauce by combining the tomato paste, dried oregano, dried thyme, raw honey, water and salt and pepper in a bowl and mixing until uniform. Set aside.
Make the filling by combining the diced tomato, zucchini, olives, basil, sea salt and black pepper in a bowl and mixing well.
To make the pockets, take a handful of the potato mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten the sides out so that there is a cavity in the middle, then add a couple teaspoons of the tomato sauce and filling. Close the pocket gently and smooth out any creases. Repeat with remaining dough.
Place a non-stick pan over medium-low heat and spray with a bit of avocado oil (optional). Add the pockets and cook for 5-10 minutes on either side, until browned and crispy. You can bake them in the oven at 350F for an additional 20 minutes if you want them even more crispy.
Makes: 4-5 servings

Chemical and food sensitivities can make life incredibly difficult. All of a sudden you may find yourself reacting to one thing and then another, and another still—maybe the air freshener at the dentist’s office, or the cologne being sprayed at the department store or an ingredient in a meal you’ve always eaten without problems.
The irritation and symptoms can start to build: headaches and migraines, fatigue, dizziness, lightheadedness, insomnia, tingling and numbness, anxiety and depression, a runny nose, a tight chest, the feeling that you can’t breathe deeply or breathe properly, a funny taste in your mouth or a tingling tongue.
Chemical and food sensitivities are an extremely frustrating and difficult challenge to navigate. Science and research don’t yet know much about these sensitivities. Chronic illnesses and symptoms of almost all kinds are still a mystery. But chemical and food sensitivities can be especially frustrating. The lack of understanding from medical communities, combined with the fact that people’s reactions are often unseen to the outside world can leave sufferers feeling invalidated within an unsympathetic world.
The good news is, I can tell you where these sensitivities begin and how to heal them. It all stems from your liver. If you suffer from sensitivities you’ll learn how to heal in Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease. Even if you don’t have chemical or food sensitivities at this point, you’re still being affected by toxins. We all are. You’ll still benefit from learning more about the incredible organ that is your liver and how its health, or lack thereof, contributes to hundreds of chronic illnesses and symptoms.
I have a lot of compassion for people who have sensitivities. Living with this issue means that an invisible, unpredictable threat and trigger can be around any corner or sitting in any meal.
Out in the world they never know when they’ll inhale some pesticides being sprayed at the park or find themselves driving behind a truck that’s shooting out exhaust. But it becomes a catch-22 because they also wonder if materials in their homes are causing problems: mold, off-gassing from furniture, carpet cleaning chemicals or the flame retardants in their mattress–to list just a few. On top of that, the triggers seem to move and shift, and all of a sudden that natural shampoo you’ve been using for years and the breakfast you’ve always eaten seems to be a problem too.
People’s fear starts to rise. They wonder, “What could trigger it next?” “What’s going to happen next,” “Am I going to die?” “What’s safe?” “What is happening to me?” “Do I have to live in a bubble?” It’s easy to become anxious and obsessive trying to figure out how to deal with it all. I can completely understand why.
Your Liver the Hero
Your liver is basically a big sponge with the job to collect, catalog and filter everything that comes into your body. Your body takes in what I call liver troublemakers (I explain these in detail in Liver Rescue), including toxins, in a variety of ways.
You can inhale toxins, like the chemicals in conventional perfumes or the fungicide your neighbor is spraying next door. You can eat or drink toxins, through the additives in your food, the ingredients in your medication or the chemicals in your tap water. You can also absorb toxins through your skin, like the chemicals used in conventional deodorant or the chemicals sprayed on wrinkle-free clothing. And then your body can also create toxins. For example, when you’re under stress, your adrenal glands pump out adrenaline as a protective measure, but adrenaline is abrasive and especially toxic to your brain.
Pathogens are another category of troublemakers for your liver and body. Viruses and bacteria, including many undiscovered mutated strains, are everywhere. Those viruses can make their way into your liver and find a home there. Then the pathogens feed on other toxins and in doing so they release waste byproducts that I call neurotoxins and dermatoxins, which cause problems for your nervous system and for your skin respectively. (By the way, one common virus is Epstein-Barr (EBV), which is responsible for many of the symptoms that lead people to a mistaken Lyme disease diagnosis. Learn the truth about Lyme disease in my book Medical Medium).
Your liver wants to capture as many troublemakers as possible to keep them from damaging the rest of your body, especially your heart and brain. Your liver is a selfless hero. It grabs the most dangerous toxins and locks them deep inside itself with the hope it will be able to release them safely later. The liver also works to neutralize certain troublemakers, or in other words to make them less harmful so that they can be safely eliminated and detoxified without hurting the body.
The Liver’s Working Too Much Overtime
The problem is your liver can only do so much. Since the time of the Industrial Revolution with the use of toxic heavy metals and the advent of harmful chemicals, the liver has too much on its plate. We’re born with troublemakers we’ve inherited from our past generations, and then the burden continues to grow.
To make matters worse, modern diets are full of unhealthy foods, many of which contain harmful additives, preservatives and pesticides. On top of that, people are eating too much fat—which is an extra burden to the already-overworked liver, because fat takes more effort to process. It doesn’t matter whether your fat is from the best organic, pasture-raised animal products or whether it’s from the cleanest plant-based vegan diet. The bottom line is, people are eating too much fat.
Even someone eating a low-fat diet often needs to do more to support the liver, such as drinking 16 ounces of pure celery juice every morning and eating more leafy greens, because we live in such a toxic world. I talk more about what to do to support your very-busy liver in Liver Rescue.
As the liver continues to become more and more burdened, eventually the reactions come out. People who suffer from chemical and food sensitivities often have guesses about when and why it started. They remember the day when their house was painted. Or the day they walked through their condo development while it was getting treated with pesticides. The time they ate a gluten-filled cupcake. But that’s not the whole story. These triggers were simply the last straw. They’re an indication that something has been wrong for a long time, and problems have been mounting. The sensitivity was on its way, and the final trigger got noticed when your liver couldn’t handle the burdens any longer.
Toxins are the Reality
The deeper truth is that the cause of sensitivities is chemicals! We do live in a toxic world, unfortunately. Our conventional laundry detergents, makeup, air fresheners, and perfumes—they’re all full of poisons. Even Christmas trees are sprayed with something. Even all the food on a cruise ship gets topped with chemicals to protect and preserve the meals.
People who react to the poisons we’re inundated with are living demonstrations of the truth that these chemicals are harmful. We need to minimize using them wherever possible or our health problems will only continue to mount.
Outsiders sometimes view people who have sensitivities as “crazy” or as “hypochondriacs.” That is, unless the reactions are obvious, like an anaphylactic response to eating peanuts. Ironically, research and science doesn’t have a cure to the problem they created—all they have is another “remedy,” for example you can use an EpiPen after eating that peanut.
The other unsympathetic and extremely damaging response to chemical or food sensitivities is that someone has “attracted” the problem or has “manifested” it through their thoughts, emotions or other issues. Of course it’s true that we all want to work on positive thinking and good energy and spiritual development and generating the best of what we want in life. But the idea that you have created your own illness is not only completely wrong; it’s also disrespectful and dismissive of all you’re going through. It’s especially disastrous when young people believe this theory—not only are they struggling with their physical health but now they themselves are to blame. This can totally shake a young person’s foundation and ability to cope emotionally, mentally and physically. It creates shame, isolation and dangerous pressure.
This is what happens when science and research and providers don’t have the answers for chronic illness, including for chemical and food sensitivities. But there are real causes, and real solutions. We need to find compassion for ourselves and for others who are suffering. Lives can be saved when we do.
Freedom from sensitivities takes time, and it is a more difficult detoxification process. But it is absolutely possible. I’ve helped thousands of people heal from chemical and food sensitivities over the decades. Even if you’ve become so sensitive that you can’t handle most supplements, you aren’t stuck. Note that this can often be because you’re using the wrong kind of quality of supplements. You may tolerate high quality supplements, like those on my preferred supplements page, at low doses just fine. But there are answers with food. You can heal by drinking pure celery juice on an empty stomach every morning. And by eating lots and lots of fresh fruit and leafy greens.
You can heal by following the advice in Liver Rescue. Immerse yourself in all the Medical Medium information from my books, website, Facebook and Instagram. I put out all kinds of free information because I want you to heal. I want you to become experts on your own health and know how to move forward with healing
If your nervous system is really sensitive, you may still react to certain exposures after you even heal. You’ll still need to work carefully with foods and try not to get too much exposure to triggers and toxins as you heal. Remember too that you aren’t the problem and you never were. It’s valuable to be a sensitive person. Your heightened awareness about the perils of our world makes you gifted and can help you protect yourself, others and our planet. You know the truth because your body is showing you.
Take it one day at a time. I support you.
