Some people may experience a change in their bowel movements when starting to consume celery juice. This is a normal detox reaction that some individuals who have a higher level of toxins may experience. Celery juice will kill off unproductive bacteria in the gut and will also help purge the liver. This can result in loose stools as the body pushes out the toxins from a very toxic liver. Almost everyone today has some degree of liver toxicity, which, as I share in my book Liver Rescue, can lead to countless symptoms and conditions. The loose stools will pass as your body heals and you may notice your bowel movements become more regular and healthier than ever. If you find celery juice too cleansing, try 16 oz of straight cucumber juice. Cucumber juice does not have the same benefits celery juice does but it is very gentle and a great choice until you can restart celery juice.
