This is a very old, inexpensive and simple remedy, suitable for many differing types of pain; celery is a rich source of potassium and magnesium, with the added benefits of keeping calcium in suspension in body fluids – minimizing deposition on and into soft tissue. Celery seed is also rich in sodium. When we can achieve optimum balance of sodium and potassium, rock like muscles can relax, ligaments can move fluids through more effectively and relaxation of both muscle and ligaments becomes more balanced. The result is simply – LESS PAIN!
The herb lowers the bloodstream’s concentration of uric acid and according to ”Dr Duke,” has completely controlled the gout he suffered for more than 20 years. Numerous studies attest to celery seed’s powerful anti-inflammatory qualities.
