If you’re on Instagram you’ve likely come across someone following the Medical Medium (Anthony William) protocols. He’s the one behind the celery juice craze. The Medical Medium has written numerous books on how to heal from chronic illness naturally. I’ve been doing well for a few years now. I no longer experience symptoms that were attributed to Lyme disease like crippling fatigue, trouble breathing, panic attacks, shooting pains, etc. I feel normal again but what remains are sensitivities to numerous foods.
This leads me to my newest experiment. I’m always exploring new ways to support my bodies ability to heal naturally. I’ve been slowly testing out the recommendations by Medical Medium. I’ve been juicing celery in the morning to support my gut health. Additionally, I’m adding in a heavy metal detox smoothie. According to the Medical Medium, the 5 foods that help detox heavy metals are wild blueberries, Hawaiian spirulina, barley juice powder, cilantro, and Atlantic dulse.
This is the first day ever I’ve combined all of these foods into a smoothie! I was a little worried about how this was going to taste so I added dates and organic raspberries to mask the flavor of the bitter greens and seaweed. It surprisingly went down easy!
How did I feel? As the day went on I started to feel a tingling in my head, my neck was in a bit of pain and I had a headache. This is a common detox reaction for me. Detoxes can make you feel worse before you feel better. Feeling crappy is motivating me to keep going. I am committing to a 7-day detox journey and will share all the details on the blog.
