Celery (Apium graveolens)


This common vegetable is an excellent diuretic.
The fresh juice is very beneficial for suppressed urination, oedema, rheumatism, gout and cellulite.
However, it should not be used in cases of kidney inflammation, as its diuretic effect may be too irritating.
It is recommended for a weak stomach, lack of appetite, wind etc.
In Germany, the celery root stock rather than the sticks are more commonly used.
The water in which celery root has been boiled is useful as a wash for treating dandruff.
The juice boiled to a syrupy consistency with sugar makes an excellent cough remedy.
The seeds are emmanogogue and should be avoided during pregnancy.
