Wellness Secret

Drink celery juice on an empty stomach. Celery juice has been amazing for regulating my appetite and overall well-being. I had a very sensitive stomach after the chemotherapy last year, and my face was very puffy from my medication. After drinking celery juice every morning for a few months, my stomach is less sensitive and the inflammation around my face is gone.
