Celery Juice Benefits: After 4 Months of Juicing Celery
I want to start by asking you one question, why did you click on this link? Have you been sick? Tired? Did you hear Kim Kardashian was drinking celery juice and wanted to know why? No judgement here. ;)
Whatever your reason is, it is my hope that celery juice will have as big of an impact on your life as it has in mine.
Yes, celery juice changed my life by helping me heal.
I guess we should start from the beginning. Where did the idea of celery juice benefitting health even come from?
Who started the celery juice movement?
Anthony William, the self proclaimed Medical Medium, is the originator of the celery juice movement.
He is open about not being a doctor and that his methods have not yet been confirmed by research from the scientific community, though I believe they ultimately will. Also, I’ve never been able to find anything from the scientific community that refutes his claims.
Anthony Williams claims that a divine voice tells him what is wrong with people’s health and then how to help them get better.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but…
I searched for years trying to find something that would help my chronic illness; celery juice 100% helped me heal.
If you would have told me six years ago that I would heal my illness (POTS) by coming across a man online, that is not a doctor, not a researcher, not a nutritionist, but a medical medium, I would have laughed.
Yes, I noticed the red flags, but…his methods worked for me. Whether he gets help from a divine spirit or was just lucky in designing his plan I don’t know, but I can’t deny that it worked.
Doctors know a lot…unless you have an illness they know nothing about. Then doctors know nothing.
And it sucks. It sucks having an illness where there are more questions than answers.
I couldn’t find a doctor who could help me even though I spent years looking. I got second opinions, went to specialists, and even flew to doctors in other states!
Let’s be clear, I don’t hate doctors. But when you are diagnosed with an illness that we as a society do not know very much about it is really hard for doctors to help you. There is just not enough funding for research. Without research, what are the doctors supposed to tell you?
I refused to accept the answer doctors gave me. They said, “right now there is no cure.”
First Impression of Anthony William The Medical Medium – I Resisted at First
The battle with chronic illness is frustrating!
If you are skeptical of Anthony William, I totally get it! When I first discovered Anthony William, The Medical Medium, I was skeptical. How can you not be? But I was so desperate to get my quality of life back I didn’t care where the information came from, I only cared that it worked.
I kept getting sicker and sicker
Unfortunately I kept getting sicker and sicker and became even more desperate for help. I made the decision to take a chance and risk getting my hopes up again.
Except this time, I wasn’t let down. This time, it actually worked. So what can 4 months of celery juice do for you?
What are the celery juice benefits I experienced?
There are so many benefits from drinking celery juice. In this post I am only going to share the benefits from my own experience, though others have seen benefits with their symptoms. I will let my results speak for themselves.
Celery Juice Benefits: Before & After 4 Months of Drinking Celery Juice
What were my symptoms before and actual real life results after 4 months of celery juice.
First off, bloating, bloating, swelling and more bloating (I was NOT PREGNANT)
Can celery juice heal your belly bloat?
I had severe swelling and bloating for so long I can’t remember when it started. It was miserable and very uncomfortable. I had to sleep on my back like a pregnant woman. I waddled. I would put on jeans in the morning and after my first sip of water would have to change due to my stomach bloating. Just from drinking water!
I tried everything and nothing worked! Doctors had no clue why I bloated. They just gave me a “filler” diagnosis of IBS, which was their way of saying, “we have no clue why you look 8 months pregnant”.
What happened to my belly bloat when I started drinking celery juice?
After 4 months of celery juice (and other dietary changes) – Belly bloat GONE!!
Seriously, it is crazy! I still am having a hard time believing it. The bloating, swelling, only being able to wear stretchy clothes, and constantly being asked “when are you due?” have completely halted.
It has only been 4-5 months, so we will see if any bloating returns, but after trying so many different things for years I can honestly say that nothing has worked so well and for so long as drinking celery juice. I can actually wear jeans again!! Yay!
How long did it take before I noticed improvements in my bloating?
It wasn’t until I had been juicing celery every day for 3 months that I started to notice things getting better, like, a lot better.
By month 4 of drinking celery juice, my bloating has completely gone away and not returned (even after going off my diet and traveling during the holiday season).
Warning! My bloating got worse before it got better
The first month and a half I juiced celery my bloating actually got much much worse. My best guess is that as all the bad bacteria flushed out of my system it irritated things.
I almost quit juicing celery juice because of the increased bloating, but kept going because I had a good feeling about it. Thank goodness I stuck it out because the pain was easily been worth the gain.
I could write a book on weird rashes. They seemed to pop up all the time. When I went to the doctor they had no clue what was causing them or how to fix them.
4 month rash update
The rashes are almost completely gone. I still get some weird heat rashes, (usually when I have my period) but they used to come any time I was in the heat. The rashes have only come back when I’ve gone off the celery juice for trips.
The facial rashes hardly show up now. If they do, it is very minimal and more irritated red and dry skin rather than an all out rash. So much better than it used to be.
My brain fog was so bad that my husband later told my he felt like he was married to someone with alzheimer’s. He said I would ask him a question, and then 1 minute later ask him the exact same question.
I felt like I had brain damage and memory loss. I forgot how to spell, I couldn’t add simple numbers. It was horrible to live like that.
When I started juicing celery juice my brain fog was not on “alzheimer’s” level anymore, but it was still awful. I was not able to focus, think clearly, and talk fast (I’ve always had a small stutter, but it came back stronger than ever).
4 Month brain fog update – My brain seems to be the last thing to recover. I still struggle to focus and think clearly, but I just wrote this 3000 word post in 4 days! I never could have written a post this long a few months ago. It is still getting better.
Sleep disturbances – Insomnia & Day Night Sleep Reversal
I had non-24 sleep wake disorder as well as day night reversal as well as horrible insomnia. I tried every sleeping pill prescription and non-prescription, but nothing worked except Anthony Williams’ diet tips.
Update on sleep 4 months in – Almost immediately after starting to drink celery juice my sleep fixed itself. The only time I have sleep issues now is when I go on a trip and go off my diet and celery juice (or when I cheat on my diet too much in general).
POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) –
Full disclosure – My POTS actually started improving before I drank celery juice. I didn’t do anything different; I woke up one day and was able to walk again. It took a lot of work (year and a half) to get to where I am today, but it was truly a miracle that I began healing the way I did.
BUT, I was in no way fully healed from POTS Syndrome when I started the Anthony Williams diet recommendations and celery juice.
I still struggled to stand and talk to people. I had anxiety. I would get so weak at times that I had to go back to using a wheelchair and yes, I was still passing out. I still had symptoms, I just was no longer bedridden.
Now – I travel the world with my husband and will probably always drink celery juice every morning that I am able!
Other Important Tips to Help You Get the Full Benefits of Celery Juice
What does celery juice taste like?
It tastes like celery…juiced. Ha! I’m not sure how else to describe it. I personally don’t think it tastes bad. At the beginning it made me nauseas, but that doesn’t happen now that I’m used to it.
Tips to make celery juice taste better
If you try it and hate it I recommend cutting the leaves off, and not juicing the white or yellow celery sticks. They make the juice bitter.
I also recommend using a strainer. It goes down a lot easier if it doesn’t have chunks.
You will also notice that some batches taste different than others. Some are more salty, and some just taste different. I was shocked the first time my celery juice tasted completely different.
Do you have to use organic celery juice or will regular celery juice work?
I use both. Whatever they have at whatever store I am at. They both seem to work, the taste can be slightly different, but I’ve had results using both.
Is Celery Juice for you?
After spending years battling Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS Syndrome) and other chronic health conditions, I can honestly say that nothing (besides God) made a bigger impact on my health than drinking 16-32 oz celery juice in the morning on an empty stomach and following Anthony Williams’ diet tips.
If you are desperate for something to help, what do you have to lose?
Where to get more information on the benefits of celery juice
If you are interested in more information on the benefits of celery juice I recommend listening to the Medical Medium podcast episode on celery juice (I listen to them on double speed).
Remember, none of this is science based YET, though I haven’t found any legitimate scientific evidence refuting his claims either (I’ve definitely looked).
Unfortunately for the chronically ill, we have not been left with much of a choice. Science has not offered enough help. Hopefully this will change, but for now what have you got to lose?
