Everyone knows that I am a true believer in Anthony Williams and his Medical Medium protocol. Medical Medium is a true medical marvel, healing thousands of people from chronic diseases and conditions. His healing protocol stems from the power of real fruits and vegetables and their ability to cure illness. One of the first things I learned from this book was about the power of adding celery juice to the diet. It might be one of the most powerful additions that I have incorporated into my lifestyle. You might now be wondering, why would I add this bitter vegetable juice into my diet?
Starting your day with 8 to 12 oz is one of the most powerful ways to get digestive system into track. It’s basically the ultimate healing tonic that pushes toxins out of your system. In addition, raw celery juice is extremely high in fiber and fluids and contains beneficial enzymes and vitamins and minerals such as vitamin k, c, b6 potassium, and folate. It is also high in natural sodium levels and contains antimicrobial properties that fight infection. Celery juice helps fight free radicals, prevents kidney stones, lowers bad cholesterol, fights cancer, reduces migraines, clears skin, reduces and controls blood pressure, lowers inflammation, protects liver health and cleans the blood. Celery juice is ultra hydrating - one of the most hydrating on the planet and can prevent dehydration by keeping electrolytes very balanced. Lastly, it is great for highly acidic bodies, as it will alkalize them.
Celery juice can heal conditions such as crones, diverticulitis, colitis, IBS, indigestion, and bloating.
“Researchers have identified over a dozen different types of antioxidants that are responsible for the benefits of celery — these include such phenolic acids as caffeic acid and ferulic acid, plus flavaols like quecetin. This makes celery useful for treating a wide range of conditions that are made worse by inflammation: joint pain (such as from arthritis), gout, kidney and liver infections, skin disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, and urinary tract infections, just to name a few” (Dr. Axe, 2018).
Celery juice is ideal for individuals with low levels of HCL, as it replenishes HCL to fight parasites, breaking down food better and allowing for pure digestion for the absorption. Starting your morning off with this juice will rebuild these HCL levels, which directly correlates to bile and liver health. According to Anthony Williams:
“Celery is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods, because it starves unproductive bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, and viruses that are present in the body and flushes their toxins and debris out of the intestinal tract and liver. Pathogens like these are so often the underlying cause of inflammation—in their absence, your body is much better able to handle whatever life throws your way. At the same time, celery helps good bacteria thrive. Consuming celery is the most powerful way to alkalize the gut. That’s in part because celery (which is technically an herb, not a vegetable) is high in bioactive sodium. It also contains cofactor micro trace mineral salts as yet undiscovered in research. These are varieties of sodium and other trace minerals (more than 60 of them) that are present in celery and work symbiotically and systematically with each other and with celery’s regular sodium to raise your body’s pH and rid toxic acids from every crevice of your body, including your gut. This process is ideal to cleanse and repair intestinal linings. At the same time, celery offers enzymes and coenzymes, and it raises hydrochloric acid in the stomach so that food digests with ease and doesn’t putrefy. This helps prevent a multitude of gastrointestinal disorders. Adding celery juice to your diet is the best way to resolve ammonia permeability, an unrecognized condition in which ammonia gas seeps through the intestinal lining and causes health issues such as dental rot and brain fog…in addition to the above, celery improves kidney function, helps restore the adrenals, and can even bring ease to one’s mind and thought patterns, with its mineral salts feeding electrical impulse activity and supporting neuron function, which is key if you suffer with ADHD, brain fog, or memory loss. When it comes to celery, think electrolytes. It hydrates on a deep cellular level, lessening your chances of suffering from migraines…plus it offers stress assistance and also repairs your DNA”
If you do not own a juicer, do not fret! You can easily blend a bunch of celery in the blender and strain it with a cheesecloth. It is best to drink right in the morning after a large glass of warm water with lemon, but you can can have it throughout the day. Another great time is post or pre workout. If you do not like the taste, juice celery with cucumber and a bit of red apple or lime juice. Remember, celery is extremely inexpensive, making this the ideal healing technique and routine for anyone on a budget. It’s honestly under 3 dollars for a stalk of celery, so go for it. You will feel the power of juicing celery within the first week of your daily sessions. Healing is in your own hands, as well as, sitting right in your kitchen!

All too often, we make life more complicated than it needs to be—or else we oversimplify what’s truly a complex issue. This push-and-pull happens in all areas of life, especially health. In one approach, people overthink health problems and throw all kinds of potential solutions at them. In the other approach, people take a health challenge that’s actually a delicate interplay of many factors and try to make it seem like it’s just a simple case of the body going haywire out of the blue. For true healing to occur, we have to embrace a balance of the simple and the complex—and celery teaches us this. Drinking celery juice is the simplest of measures, so simple that people often write it off as too easy to make a difference in how they feel. They figure that adding several other ingredients to their green juice will add that many more nutrients. While green-juice blends can be very healing, there is nothing that equals the simple power of pure celery juice. It is as healing, transformational, and life-changing as it gets—and that’s due to its complex nutritional makeup, which needs to be left undisturbed to work its magic. It’s an important reminder for other areas of life. Where else do we need to have an intricate understanding of a situation to conclude that the simplest approach is the best
To press the reset button on your body, juice celery by itself. For the full effect, drink a full 16 ounces of fresh celery juice daily—and make sure it’s on an empty stomach to raise hydrochloric acid levels most efficiently. For dramatic results, drink two 16-ounce glasses of fresh celery juice a day.
