Juicing for Inflammation



My mom has fibromyalgia and recently found out she has osteoarthritis in her hand.   

She has been supplementing and juicing for inflammation and has a go-to juice.  All of these ingredients contribute towards reducing inflammation and helping your body to cope with it.

No More Inflammation Juice Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large bunch of celery
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 apple
  • Fresh ginger or turmeric

DIRECTIONS

Juice the celery, cucumber, apple and ginger/turmeric together in a juicer machine.  If you don’t have both ginger and turmeric that’s okay, but if you can get both they are both great for inflammation.

BLENDER VARIATION

If you only have a blender, blend all of these ingredients together with 1-2 cups of water and strain through a stainless steel strainer or nut milk bag.

WHY THIS RECIPE

Celery and cucumber help flush out acid deposits and hydrate your body. They are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals like folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin K.  They are high in phytonutrient antioxidants that contain anti-inflammatory properties.  Ginger and Turmeric have been shown in studies to reduce inflammation and I’ve seen a lot of people have great results by supplementing with them.

Other Anti-Inflammatory Juice Combinations

There are many other anti-inflammatory juice combinations that you can try that may help your condition.  Here are some that I like:

  • Pineapple + Celery + Ginger Juice
  • Pineapple + Cucumber + Turmeric Juice
  • Turmeric + Ginger + Lemon Juice Shots (A juice shot is only about 1 ounce of a very potent juice)
  • Blueberry + Spinach + Celery + Ginger Smoothie
  • Cherry + Pineapple + Turmeric Smoothie
  • Tropical Pinapple Inflammation Juice 

Other things you can do to promote less inflammation

While juices and smoothies can help, adopting an anti-inflammatory diet is really important.  Reduce or remove foods that have been shown to cause inflammation like wheat, refined carbs, sugars and processed foods.  Up your intake of fresh produce, leafy greens, cold water fish, nuts, healthy oils, and nutrients like omega fatty acids and vitamin C.
