Celery Juice Benefits: After 4 Months of Juicing Celery
I want to start by asking you one question, why did you click on this page? Of all the things you could be reading or doing, why are you spending your time reading an article on celery juice?
Have you been sick? Tired? Just curious? 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 mine.
Wait…did I really just say that celery juice changed my life? Huh?
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 very open about not being a doctor, and that his methods have not yet been confirmed by research from the scientific community (I believe they soon will).
So where does he get his information? Anthony Williams claims that beginning as a child he heard a divine voice (he calls this voice Spirit) that tells him what is wrong with people’s health.
Yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds, but hear me out…
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 ultimately heal my illness 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 waving when I started as well, but…
Simply put, his methods work.
Doctors didn’t have the information to help me
I couldn’t find a doctor who could help me, and I spent years looking. I got second opinions, I went to specialists, and I even flew to doctors in other states!
I refused to accept the answer doctors gave me. They said, “right now there is now cure.”
I was desperate for answers that medical research did not have. If there is no research, how are doctors supposed to help you?
The battle with chronic illness is frustrating!
If you are skeptical of Anthony William, I totally get it! After completely losing my quality of life I was desperate to get it back. When you are at that point you don’t really care where his information is coming from. You are just so happy and grateful that it has worked for you.
I just hope it can work for you guys as well! Whatever your condition.
First Impression of Anthony William The Medical Medium (I Resisted at First)
When I first discovered Anthony William, The Medical Medium I will admit I was skeptical and resisted.
But I kept getting sicker and sicker and I became even more desperate for help. So I made the decision to take a chance and risk getting my hopes up again that something will finally help just to be let down.
Except this time, I wasn’t let down. This time, it actually seemed to work.
So what can 4 months of celery juice do for you?
What are the celery juice benefits I experienced?
There are honestly so many benefits I have found from drinking celery juice. But in this post I am only going to share the benefits from my own experience. I will let my own results speak for themselves in the next section.
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.
Bloating, bloating, swelling and more bloating
Can celery juice heal your belly bloat?
I have had severe swelling and bloating for so long I honestly can’t remember when it started. It was miserable. Very uncomfortable. I had to sleep on my back like a pregnant women. I waddled. I would put on jeans in the morning and already after my first sip of water my stomach would just fill up like a balloon and after to go change. Just from drinking water!
I tried everything! Nothing worked and doctors had no clue why I was bloating. They just gave me some “filler” diagnosis of IBS which I knew was their way of saying, “I have no clue why you look like you are 8 months pregnant”.
So 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 all completely halted.
It has only been 4-5 months so we will see if any bloating returns down the road 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 daily for 3 months until I started to notice things getting better, like, a lot better.
By month 4 of drinking celery juice, my bloating has completely went away and has not returned – even after going off my diet and traveling during the entire holiday season.
My bloating got worse before it got better
The first month and a half I was juicing celery my bloating actually got much much worse. As all the bad bacteria flushes out of your system it can irritate things. I didn’t know this at the time but had noticed in the past that anytime I ate really healthy food my bloating would get worse. This included juicing.
I almost quite juicing celery juice because of it in the first month but I just had a good feeling about it. I stuck it out and thank goodness I did because the pain has been worth the gain.
My brain fog was so bad at one point 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, repeating this multiple times until he told me I was doing it.
I felt like I had brain damage, memory loss, I forgot how to spell, I couldn’t add simple numbers together. It was horrible to live like that when you are so young.
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, talk fast, and I have had a small stutter most of my life that came back stronger than ever.
Month 4 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 3300 word blog post in 4 days! I never could of dreamed of writing a blog post this long even few months ago. It is getting better.
I could write a book on weird rashes. They seemed to pop up all the time and when I went to the doctors no one every knew what was causing my rashes or how to fix them.
4 month rash update –
Rashes are almost completely gone. I still get some weird heat rashes (usually when I have my period) but they used to come anytime I was in any kind of heat, so that is a huge improvement that they only show up after I have gone off the diet and celery juice for a trip.
The facial rashes hardly show up at all anymore. If they do it is very minimal and more red, irritated, dry skin than weird rash. Nothing like it used to be.
Sleep disturbances – Insomnia & Day Night Sleep Reversal
I had non-24 sleep wake disorder as well as day night reversal. I tried everything to fix these issues and nothing worked! Except Anthony Williams diet tips.
Update on sleep 4 months in – My sleep almost immediately fixed itself after starting celery juice. The only time I have sleep issues now is when I go on a trip and go off the diet and celery juice for a while or I cheat too much in general.
POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) –
Full disclosure – My POTS actually started improving before I was drinking celery juice. I honestly don’t know what happened. I didn’t do anything different, I just woke up one day and was able to walk. It took a lot of work (year and a half of work) to get to where I am today but it was truly a miracle that I began healing the way I did.
Now – I travel the world with my husband and will probably always drink celery juice every morning I am able!
Other Important Tips to Help You Get the Full Benefits of Celery Juice
What does celery juice it taste like?
It tastes like celery…juiced. Ha. Not sure how else to describe it. I personally don’t think it tastes bad at all. It would make me really nauseas at the beginning but my body just was not used to it.
Tips to make celery juice taste better
If you try it and hate it I recommend making sure the leaves are cut off and don’t juice the white or yellow celery sticks. Those will make the juice a lot more bitter.
I also recommend using a strainer. It will go down a lot easier if it doesn’t have chunks in it.
You will also start to notice that some batches will taste really different than others. Some are more salty, and some just taste different. I can’t really describe it. I just remember being so shocked the first time I had celery juice that 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 is different but I had results using them 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 in a 4 month span of time there is nothing (besides God) that has made a bigger impact on my continuing health than drinking celery juice and cleaning up my diet.
I saw so many doctors, tried so many different diets, had so many tests run, and yet, still, no hope of a cure in sight.
So, after over 4 months following the Medical Medium dietary tips and drinking 16-32 oz of celery juice every morning on an empty stomach.
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 his podcast episode on celery juice benefits by the Medical Medium himself. (I like to listen to them on double speed.)
Keep in mind again, that none of this is science based. If scientific evidence is what you are looking for than he is not your guy.
Unfortunately for the chronically ill, we have not been left with much of a choice. Science has not offered very much help. Hopefully this will change one day, but for now, what have you got to lose?
