Celery is one of the most alkalising foods on the planet and is rich in plant sodium which removes uric acid from the body. Stress and poor diet can cause chronic acidity in the body. Long term acid condition leads to inflammation. It is not possible to change this over night so juicing celery for some, may taste like poison until the body slowly moves to a healthier ph balance. The solution again is start with small doses.
Parsley leaf (related to the celery) is also an excellent diuretic, super dense in chlorophyll and one of the highest sources of Vit C in Green Foods. Vit C is an important nutrient that help combat inflammation as it neutralises the effects of toxins in the body and supports healthy immune function.
Dandelion Leaves – are a natural & powerful medicine for the bladder & kidneys. It removes excess fluid from the body, fluid retention can be a side effect to inflammation. Its bitter quality is excellent digestive & is particularly indicated for inflammation of the gallbladder and digestive tract in general.
Pineapple is a surprising fruit and in plenty supply in supermarkets at the moment. It is rich in vitamin c, so a natural immune enhancer. It also contains bromelain an effective anti-inflammatory agent. Bromelain is an enzyme that helps break down protein. Studies have been done measuring pineapple for its effectiveness in reducing inflammation, especially IBS and joint pain with quite impressive results.[i] Most of the bromelain is contained in the stem though, so juicing is the perfect solution and stem should be included. Pineapple may affect those with gastritis, this will depend on whether the condition is caused by too much or too little acid and this subject deserves a post by itself. Although when combined with so many other alkalising ingredients it may not matter.
