These Onion Rings are crispy and delicious! Baked to a beautiful golden brown, these onion rings don’t require you to fry them in any oil, nor do they include any gluten or grains, butter or eggs.
Onions are particularly beneficial for stomach, colon, prostate, breast, lung, bladder, and ovarian cancer. They contain valuable sulfur compounds that are known to significantly strengthen the immune system, brain, and nervous system. These sulfur compounds also act as a heavy metal detoxifier and can help to safely remove mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and lead from the body. Onions can help to treat colds, coughs, bacterial infections, angina, and bronchial spasms.
Crispy Onion Rings
1 cup chickpea breadcrumbs
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 1/2 tbsp ground golden flaxseeds
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 medium onions, sliced 1/2 inch thick and separated into rings
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
To make the onion rings, place the chickpea breadcrumbs, paprika, salt and pepper in a food processor and process until you get a fine crumb. Set aside.
Make the flax egg by whisking together the ground flaxseeds and almond milk. Let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
Dip the onion rings first into the flax egg and then into the breadcrumb mixture. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the onions. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Serve immediately.

These gorgeous gluten-free & dairy-free Raspberry Linzer Cookies are as appealing to the eye as they are the taste buds. They’re also fun to make with children, friends or loved ones. They look beautiful served at parties and gatherings or simply as a special treat to enjoy with a cup of herbal tea at home.
Raspberries are a great full-body detoxifying food, rich in antioxidants that specifically remove EBV’s byproduct and other viral debris from the bloodstream, allowing for easier overall cleansing. Raspberries also tend to bind onto and remove impurities delivered to the intestinal tract by a liver burdened by viral waste matter.
Raspberry Linzer Cookies
1 1/4 cup almond flour
3 cups gluten-free oat flour
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
Sea salt (optional)
For the jam:
2 cups fresh raspberries
1-3 tbsp maple syrup, depending on sweetness of raspberries
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp white chia seeds
Make the jam by combining the raspberries, maple syrup and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a medium-high heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the raspberries have broken down. Remove from heat and stir in the chia seeds. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to thicken.
Make the cookie dough by adding the almond flour, gluten-free oat flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and sea salt to a bowl. Mix in the bowl with a wooden spoon, then transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until uniform. Divide the dough into two, cover each piece with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Working one piece of dough at a time, roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick between two sheets of parchment paper. Using a cookie cutter, cut an equal amount of cookies with a shape you desire cut out of the middle, such as a heart, star or triangle – this will be the top cookie), and with no shape cut out (these will be the bottom cookies). Transfer to the lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
Bake the cookies in the oven for 8-12 minutes, until very slightly browned. Transfer to a cookie sheet and cool completely. Add about 1 tsp of raspberry jam to the bottom cookie. Gently sandwich the tops and bottoms together. Repeat with rest of cookies. Store in an airtight container at a cool room temperature for up to 24 hours, or in the refrigerator for several days.
Makes about 25-30 cookies

This creamy, chipotle-seasoned pasta is sure to please! It’s healthy and delicious and makes a perfect meal for family dinners. Pair it with a vibrant fresh salad for extra nutrients and healing properties.
Tomatoes: Harness critical micronutrients, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals to support many functions of the liver. Lycopene is a beloved nutrient that the liver uses to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely,
smoothly, and efficiently. The fruit acids in tomatoes help keep the gallbladder healthy, helping rid sludge from the gallbladder and even reduce gallstone size.
Garlic: Deserves to be heralded as medicine for our world today. Used to enhance vitality since ancient times, garlic is more important for our well-being now than ever before. To give garlic its proper due would take a book on its own. Suffice it to say that garlic is multifaceted, playing many different roles in protecting a person’s health, and has substantial reach in what it can do for someone. Garlic is antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal (including anti-mold), anti-parasitic, and rich in the phytochemical allicin, a sulfur compound that prevents disease.
1/3 cup mashed avocado
1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, more if needed
1/2 to 1 tsp chipotle seasoning, to taste
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/3 cup crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp lemon juice
Sea salt, to taste (optional)
3 zucchinis or 1/2 lb. brown rice, sweet potato, chickpea or lentil noodles
2 tbsp roughly chopped fresh cilantro, to serve
Spiralize the zucchini. If using brown rice, sweet potato, or bean noodles, cook them in salted boiling water until tender. Drain and set aside.
Make the sauce by combining the avocado, almond milk, chipotle seasoning, garlic, onion powder, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, lemon juice and sea salt in a blender and blending until smooth. The sauce should be thick but pourable - add a bit more almond milk if necessary.
Place the sauce in a large saucepan and heat until just warm. Don’t heat it too much or the sauce may become gluggy. Add the spiralized zucchini or noodles and toss to coat.
Divide the pasta between serving bowls and top with chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.

A favorite tasty treat for a snack or dessert. This Strawberry Banana bread is quick to whisk together, and then you can pop it in the oven and enjoy the inviting aromas that fill up your home while you wait for it to cook. This recipe is gluten, dairy and egg free, and also low in fat.
Bananas: The fructose in banana is liver’s favorite source of food. It provides quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Soothes the linings of the intestinal tract and also soothes the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Bananas are a powerful antiviral food and contrary to popular belief, they are also one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver’s ability to absorb nutrients.
Strawberry Banana Bread
3 ripe bananas (yields about 1 1/2 cups mashed)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 1/2 cups gluten-free oat flour
1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup roughly chopped strawberries
2 whole strawberries, thinly sliced, for topping
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x5 loaf pan with parchment paper.
Place the bananas in a bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher. Add the maple syrup, coconut sugar, vanilla extract and almond milk. Mix well.
In another bowl, combine the oat flour, sea salt, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk until lump free. Add the wet ingredients and fold gently until you get a uniform batter.
Add the chopped strawberries and stir very gently, just enough to incorporate them.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the oven for 45-55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool completely before slicing.

“If you have a shaky history with sodium and the word makes you nervous, let me assure you that the sodium in celery juice is beneficial. Even if you’re on a low-sodium diet, you can still have celery juice. It’s not like eating a food that’s had table salt—or even healthier salts like Himalayan rock salt or Celtic sea salt—thrown on it. While your body does not see regular salt added to food as a friend, it accepts the sodium from celery juice as one of its own.
Celery juice is on your side. It actually removes crystallized toxic salts that have been in your organs for years. Now, if you get a blood test when you’re on celery juice, it could show elevated sodium. What the test is really detecting are these old, toxic salts that celery juice is rounding up and sending out of your body. Plus, chances are you haven’t given up table salt, so the blood analysis is picking up on that salt in your system as well. Blood testing isn’t nuanced enough to pick up on the difference.
A blood test could detect some sodium from celery juice, too, although it’s going to be what I call macro sodium, a common form of plant sodium that’s entirely healthy and needed. It’s so beneficial and balancing that it doesn’t spike the blood—meaning that if a blood test is displaying elevated sodium, celery juice’s sodium isn’t causing it. Elevated sodium levels are also not caused by celery juice’s sodium cluster salts. A blood test isn’t sensitive enough to pick up on celery juice’s sodium cluster salts; testing isn’t geared to find them, because they’re a subgroup of sodium that hasn’t been discovered yet by research and science.
So celery juice’s beneficial macro sodium only stabilizes the blood; it won’t lead to high sodium readings. Again, though, it could take a little time to get to those stabilized readings, or they could come and go, because (1) it’s really easy to overindulge in table salt, since it’s practically everywhere, and that’s going to show up on a blood test, and (2) periodically, celery juice is going to be clearing out pockets of old, toxic salt as it reaches them deep in the organs, and that’s going to throw off blood test interpretations.
Celery juice’s complicated structures of beneficial sodium are elevated above other types, with different jobs and responsibilities. This is an entirely different make and model of sodium. It serves as a critical component of neurotransmitters—better said, it’s the ultimate neurotransmitter chemical. It’s what makes celery juice the most powerful electrolyte beverage on the planet. Nothing can surpass or even equal it.
Let’s talk more about the undiscovered subgroup of celery juice’s sodium that I call sodium cluster salts. “Sodium” and “salt” may sound a bit redundant, and yet it communicates that they are mineral salts that cluster around the macro sodium in celery juice. That is, sodium cluster salts are a separate acting group of compounds that surround the element we know as sodium in celery, all of it arranged in a structured form, almost like our solar system. Trace minerals also reside in these living, moving clusters. Some trace minerals are bonded to the sodium cluster salts themselves, and some simply float inside the clusters.
There is information for us within these clusters. That’s rare. For the most part, plants are all about themselves. (Sound a bit like humans sometimes?) The information they contain is largely geared to sustaining themselves in their habitat, to accessing nourishment, to survival. Celery is different. Some of its information is for us, or for other animals consuming it. Sodium cluster salts aren’t there as a defense mechanism or to keep the celery healthy as it’s growing; they aren’t there to keep the plant alive. They’re for us. Sodium cluster salts contain information for our own well-being that’s activated when it enters our bodies. Information from the plant—the herb—itself and information from the sun as the plant was growing. Information about its purpose and how it can help the creature consuming it. Information about the complex job of extending our lives. Even if celery is grown in poor soil, it will still possess its cluster salts.
All salt is not the same. Although it can be easy to believe that sodium is sodium whether it’s in the ocean, a vegetable, soil, rock, or a salt lake, it’s not. If viewing it properly in a chemist’s lab, a technician would discover the various salts contained within the sodium in celery juice. That technician would find that the salts cluster around each other, acting as one—as the sodium in no other herb, vegetable, or mineral does. Not even the salt in the ocean behaves in the particular way that this humble herb’s does.
The sodium cluster salts in celery juice are able to neutralize toxins as they’re floating through the bloodstream and organs. That means that when the cluster salts touch them, they disarm the troublemakers, making them more friendly and acceptable to the body and less toxic, so that they don’t do harm to our human cells and organ tissue.
Toxic heavy metals are a particular type of toxin that celery juice’s sodium cluster salts take on. Heavy metals have a destructive, active charge to them that causes the metals to be damaging to liver cells, brain cells, and other cells throughout the body. Cluster salts defuse the charge, rendering them inactive and less aggressive, specifically disarming toxic heavy metals such as copper, mercury, and aluminum.
Sodium cluster salts also fight off unwanted bacteria and viruses. (You’ll read so much more about this ability throughout the next chapter.) Tricky bugs such as strep can’t become resistant or immune to them, the way they can to pharmaceutical antibiotics, so the cluster salts keep on working as you drink celery juice over time. Celery juice’s mineral salts are able to kill off bacterial, fungal, and viral overgrowth as they travel through the small intestine and colon, and even once they’re absorbed into the bloodstream and pulled up into the liver through the hepatic portal vein. They’re an incredible antiseptic in this way, enhancing your entire body’s immune system.
These mineral salts are also able to support the liver in producing bile. That’s partly because the cluster salts enter the bile to make it stronger and partly because the celery juice rejuvenates the liver overall, allowing it to function properly and produce bile more efficiently. This is one aspect of what makes celery juice extraordinary for the liver.
To recap: The sodium in celery juice is suspended in living water within the celery. Inside that living water are sodium cluster salts, tightly connected to it. So the cluster salts surround and suspend sodium, and they’re also varieties of sodium themselves. The different forms of sodium become one and they’re also separate. That’s how celery juice is structured. Medical research and science haven’t identified this yet because they haven’t tried to look beyond “celery has salt.” It’s not nearly that simple. If they analyze it superficially, it’s going to look like salt. If they analyzed it further, they would be able to separate out and identify the different varieties of sodium within celery juice. And then they would be closer to identifying all that these sodium cluster salts do for our health.
Rather than having to wait decades for these medical answers, you already hold them in your hands. You’ll find out so much about the surprising and potent benefits of sodium cluster salts throughout this book, particularly in the next chapter, “Relief from Your Symptoms and Conditions.”

IN THIS VIDEO: Kimberly went from living a life full of running, cycling, hiking and yoga to waking up one morning with neurological symptoms. Despite seeing the best doctors, both conventional and alternative, being diagnosed with Lyme disease and Hashimoto’s, and on numerous medications, she was getting worse and worse. She had neurological fatigue, tingles, numbness, ocular migraines, tremors, and more. Watch her share how she was able to heal when she finally found the work of Anthony William, Medical Medium. Thank you so much, Kimberly, for sharing your story and inspiring and helpign so many!
To understand the undiscovered truth about Lyme disease, read this excerpt from Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide: “You may be interested to know that Lyme disease is a chronic viral infection. While you might have been diagnosed with a bacterial infection, the symptoms of Lyme are viral. Even if bacteria such as Borrelia are present, they’re not causing what makes Lyme patients suffer. The symptoms of Lyme are neurological, and bacteria don’t create neurological symptoms because they don’t produce neurotoxins. Only viruses feeding on toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, and copper—as well as gluten, eggs, dairy, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides that are inside our livers and other parts of our bodies—create the neurotoxins that cause Lyme disease.”
