Mucus Cleansing Radish Juice

Do you suffer from excess mucus in the body? Excessive mucus is a sign that the body is in a state of agitation. Excess mucus can come from toxins, pollutants, food additives, allergies, and is often associated with the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system and lymphatic system.

The two main foods which cause excessive mucus build-up in the body are dairy and wheat. Casein in dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese, etc.) and gluten in wheat require strong stomach acids for digestion. Once digestion is complete, there are still many left-over food particles which are too big to be used by the body. This results in partly-digested food particles which putrefy and become coated with thick mucus to prevent further putrefaction in the intestines. 

The North American diet is mainly made up of wheat and dairy products, resulting in a body that is in a constant state of fighting off a sort of foreign "viral invasion" (the body gets confused about these products that are entering it, and thus naturally protects itself by fighting these food particles - a way similar to how it would fight off other foreign things like bacteria and viruses). 

Here are 7 reasons why you may want to drink this juice:

1. You suffer from a chronic cough that won't go away
2. You are currently experiencing mucus from a cold and/or flu
3. You wake up with puffy and crusty eyes in the morning
4. Bad breath throughout the day (even after brushing teeth)
5. You have a constant stuffy nose
6. Your senses are dulled (you require lots of salt to make food "taste good")
7. Your senses are not sharp - your mind is foggy and thinking clearly is difficult

Did you know that radishes are one of the best foods for cleansing out mucus from the body? Use this juice to help clear mucus, and reduce, or completely eliminate the amount of wheat and dairy products you are consuming (try this out for a week or two and notice the difference!)

- 2 bunches of radishes (or 2 cups daikon radish - any type of radish will work)
- 2 apples
- 6 stalks celery
- 3 inches ginger root
- 1 lemon

Juice the above ingredients in a juicer such as the Omega 8006 & Serve!


  1. Hi! Is there another way you could do this in a blender? I don´t have a juicer but I think this juice could really help me!

    1. You can definitely use a blender! And if you wanted, you could strain out the pulp with a nut-milk bag to make your own juice, just without a juicer!

    2. Just wondering if you are just a blogger or do you have a dietician degree?

  2. I have my honours degree in biosciences, upon which I took many nutrition courses, as well as learnt the science behind how nutrients are processed in the body. Also 10 years of experiencing this journey. I still am getting my about page together here, but in the meantime, check out my main website to get a full About story on my Journey!

  3. How often and how much should you drink ?

  4. can i skip the celery ?? they dont grow in this part of the world ??

    1. I think celery grows everywhere, but yes, you can skip it - or you can put in extra cucumber or some bok choy.

  5. Do I use just the root of the radish or can I use the green too. I tried this doing all of what u said and my juice came out green. Not red like the pix

  6. Well i drink a lot juice but i don't use radish....i try this!
