You’d have to be someone who never looks at social media to not notice the hype around celery juice right now. A lot of that has to do with Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium, and his books that mention the benefits of drinking fresh celery juice each morning.
About two years ago, I wrote a blog post on this site about my morning ritual with celery juice and it is my most popular blog post ever. Since then, I’ve received questions from readers and clients all over the world about drinking celery juice, so I decided to do a follow up post to answer some of these questions officially.
As I mentioned in my first post about celery juice, I first learned about the healing benefits of celery juice from The Medical Medium in his book, Secrets Behind Chronic And Mystery Illnesses And How To Finally Heal. Around that time I followed his diet protocol in the book and really got my health in a better place than it had been in a long time.
Now I’m a devoted celery juice drinker, and I’ve shared the benefits of this with hundreds of other clients and friends who also benefit from drinking it daily (or often).
So, if you have questions about how to go about this, see below:
Celery Juice FAQ
How do I make the juice if I don’t have a juicer?
As I mentioned in my blog post, I don’t use a juicer as they are a bit messy and time-consuming. I use a Vitamix, but any heavy-duty blender will do. When I buy the organic celery and bring it home, I chop up a bunch in bite-sized pieces and put them in separate containers in the fridge. One container or baggie per bunch of celery. I don’t use the leaves or the root, but you can add these in if you’d like- just chop well.
Then, in the morning first thing before I have breakfast I dump the chopped celery in my vitamix and add a little bit of water (just a little!) to help it blend. I blend it on high just like a smoothie. Then I use a hand-held metal mesh strainer, which I hold over a mixing bowl, as I pour the contents from the Vitamix into the bowl. This strains the celery juice well. I then pour into a glass and drink immediately.
How much celery do I use?
I would recommend you use 1 bunch of celery. That is about 5-10 stalks. Some bunches are smaller than others, so sometimes I combine two small bunches together. It’s not an exact science, yet the Medical Medium recommends you drink 16 oz. of juice per day on an empty stomach.
What if I get diarrhea after drinking celery juice?
This reaction is not common, but not unheard of. Everybody is different and I personally have never had an issue with this. That being said, it is possible that your body is detoxing a bit and in need of flushing out some things. If this continues for several days, take a break and work on your diet and other areas of your health. Add fiber to your diet until your stools are more healthy and balanced. Then give it a try again and work in the celery juice a little at a time.
Do I have to drink 16 oz. of celery juice for it to be beneficial?
Some people have commented that more than 8 oz of celery juice at a time is a bit too much for them to handle. I would recommend that you work up to 16 oz per day, especially if you are having any chronic and severe health problems. That being said, if you are not having a lot of issues, and want to drink this for maintenance, you may still benefit from drinking less juice and you may not need to drink it daily.
Watch this video from Medical Medium about why he recommends 16 oz of juice.
Can I add things to the juice to make it taste better?
In general, the Medical Medium doesn’t recommend that you do this as it reduces the benefits of celery juice.
What I tell my clients who really can’t tolerate the taste is to add lemon juice to it at first. The hope is that after a few days you get used to the taste and you’re able to drink the straight celery juice. Most people get used to it pretty quickly. I do add a little bit of water to the celery when I blend it, but I try to keep this to a minimum.
How is drinking celery juice any different than drinking water?
Drinking celery juice is very different than simply drinking water. Check out this blog post by Medical Medium and his team to learn why.Drinking Celery Juice Each Day Can Transform Your Health. It Is More Than Just Water. Click To Tweet
