What I wish I'd know about celery juice

Aisling FitzGibbon


This week’s Q & A is about celery juice.

Question: How do you prepare this Aisling? Is eating celery sticks raw the same, or do you have to juice it? What is the difference between the juice and the celery by itself as it is?

Answer: Thanks for a great Question! First off I’d like to tell you that I wish I had of known of the life changing health benefits of celery juicing way sooner. I was walking past celery in my supermarket and markets not paying it any attention. Instead I was chasing other health trends, many of which ended up hurting my health and not helping.

There is a big difference between eating the celery sticks raw and juicing them. First off you can’t possibly eat the amount of celery you can juice. It’s recommended to drink 1 whole bunch of celery in the morning on an empty stomach. By juicing the celery your body gets a massive boost of live enzymes, minerals and vitamins.

Don’t get me wrong eating raw celery is still helpful but not nearly as powerful as juicing celery.

I juice a whole bunch of celery and add chopped up sticks one by one into my Green Star Juicer.

I enjoy serving my celery juice in either a martini glass or fine wine glass for a touch of glamour to the occasion.

Celery juice is most powerful when you drink it SOLO. 

How Celery Juice benefits you:

When you drink your celery juice first thing in the morning, it will also strengthen your digestion of foods you eat for the rest of the day.  You receive the concentrated undiscovered cluster salts, that do all of the following :

Quickly rebuilds your hydrochloric acid so that your stomach can break down protein.

If protein isn’t broken down properly it will cause gut rot.

Strong hydrochloric acid is important to kill off pathogens entering your mouth. 

Celery Juice increases and strengthens your bile. 

Strong bile is important for the break down fats, and for the killing off pathogens; that have made their way into your body. 

Eating straight celery wouldn’t allow you to get enough of celery’s cluster salts; that acts as antiseptics for pathogens.

I’ve added celery juice to my routine and I can honestly say my nervous system has never been stronger despite going through one of the toughest years of my life with my Mum passing away in May.

I hope you are inspired to include celery juice in your life. Let me know how it goes in the comments below!

To your energy and health,

Interview with Niamh Burke

Aisling FitzGibbon

Niamh Burke is a Nutritionist practicing in Galway. I met Niamh at the Bill Walsh training course in Dublin last November. Niamh studied art before she trained as a Nutritionist. You can tell from her beautiful style and presentation of her food photography. Niamh loves teaching, cooking and sharing her love of real food and healing the body naturally. I enjoy watching Niamh share her great content with the world.

Niamh focuses primarily on Hormonal issues.  Within the hormonal picture, a common issue Niamh treats is constipation which is often overlooked in terms of importance for our overall health. Constipation can have many root causes depending on the individual. Some of the factors causing constipation include the following: 

Stress. Stress is carried in our bowel which can impact on its function. Think blogged pipes due to blocked emotion.

Lack of fluids. The colon is the organ that registers dehydration. 

An accident to the body that requires treatment to realign the body. An osteopath is a good place to start if this may be the cause of your constipation. 

Low thyroid function can create constipation. Low thyroid function is extremely common with woman due to lack of iodine in the diet and high stressed lifestyles that deplete adrenal function. Healthy adrenals are the foundation of a healthy thyroid. 

Food intolerances can be a factor. Exploring an elimination diet is a great place to start to investigate what foods you may be intolerant to. Elimination diet is helpful to cut out foods for 2 weeks then reintroduce one at time for 3 days to assess reactions in your food diary. 

Fibre feed the good gut bacteria. Lack of good gut bacteria can lead to constipation.

Support the liver to eliminate toxins. A sluggish liver can impact your bowel function leading to constipation. 

Magnesium relaxes, calcium contracts – may need magnesium if you have constipation.

Nutrition helps to find the root cause as the cause is different depending on a unique individual.

Niamh’s top 3 tips for health:

1) Eat your vegetables. Eat a rainbow of colours. Cruciferous vegetables help to detox your liver, for example; Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Collard Greens, Kale.

2) Good quality grass-fed meat from free range animals

3) If you’re not happy with your health, get support. Reach out to who you feel can support your wellness journey.
