We live in a world that provides us all that we need and more.

Whenever we feel ill, we can go to a doctor and in exchange for money we receive chemical medicines that act on our symptoms eliminating them and giving us the feeling that we are cured.

But… are we really cured?

Are the chemicals in these pills really restoring our health to a perfect level?

Maybe the answer is yes; or maybe not. This is not our focus for today.

Today we will begin to talk about other kinds of medications; medicines that are everywhere around us. Those remedies that Nature is endlessly providing; remedies that are not only influencing our symptoms, but also work at a deeper level, at the root of any illness, curing and giving us back what we were designed to always have… a good body and mental health… the health which we all desire.

We will start a series of articles that will talk about natural remedies and the way we can use them to change our lives for the better.

I was not sure with what to start and trying to figure out what to choose from all the treasures nature is providing us… somehow my mind directed itself to a vegetable whose taste I don’t necessarily like… CELERY. So, I told myself… “This can’t be a coincidence. I must talk about celery because some of my reader friends would probably also need this information.”

It does not matter if I like the taste or not. Celery is one of the treasures we have in our hands which we should value.

This article will be split in two parts so it will be easier to read.

So… let’s take an interesting trip together and explore the little miracles around us that often sometimes we take for granted.

 

CELERY
THINGS THAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW

Celery’s scientific name is Apium graveolens, where Apium is a generic name given to the eatable roots, gravis means powerful, olens means smell. So the translation would be “strong smelling root”.

I will intentionally skip the history part because I want to focus on its curative properties.

In Chinese medicine it is said that there doesn’t exist a better aliment for body and mind rejuvenation, than the celery leaves. The same opinion was shared by the old Egyptians, Greeks and Roman doctors.

Celery was at the same time seen as an aliment and a medicine due to its remarkable therapeutic properties.
