I’m coming up on three years, drinking freshly prepared celery juice. This daily practice is the first I adopted, based on the teachings of the Medical Medium, Anthony William. Drinking celery juice has become a global phenomenon. Thousands and thousands of people start their day with a glass of this green elixir.
Because celery juice delivers amazing health benefits.
Here are the questions I get asked most, about drinking celery juice:
How do you prepare celery juice?
Celery juice can be prepare two ways.
Trim the base off of a bunch of celery, wash, and run through a juicer. Try one of these juicers: centrifugal or masticating
Or, place cut up celery in a blender, blend on high speed until smooth, strain juice into a glass. I love this blender.
Why drink celery juice on an empty stomach?
Drinking this juice first thing, or 30 minutes after a glass of lemon water, allows the healing nutrients to be absorbed quickly. And, celery juice first thing in the morning strengthens the digestion of the foods eaten the rest of the day. Finally, straight celery juice on an empty stomach deeply heals the digestive system and restores the stomach’s hydrochloric acid.
Can celery juice be prepared the night before?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions that I get about celery juice. It’s best to drink it fresh, immediately after juicing, so that it doesn’t oxidize. I know is takes a few minutes to prepare in the morning. It is worth the trouble, prepping the celery and then rinsing the juicer after use.
Can I get the same benefits if I eat the celery?
It is much easier to drink 16 ounces of celery juice, rather than eat a whole bunch. Plus the nutrients are delivered quickly to the body, through the juice. Of course, add celery to salads and recipes. It is a very healing food.
What if I don’t like the taste of celery? Can I add other fruits/veggies?
It’s best to drink celery juice plain, to get the most benefits. However, if the taste is a challenge, Anthony suggests adding half an apple to the juice. Gradually decrease the amount of apple, until it’s just celery juice. Another idea is to start with a very small amount of juice, and gradually increase the ounces until you can drink 16 ounces. I tell people to just do it. The benefits of celery juice are so many, and so powerful, that I’d recommend drinking it, even if you don’t care for the taste. I know people who started out not liking celery juice, however they continued to drink it, day after day. They love the green juice now.
Can I drink more than 16 ounces?
Yes! Some people drink up to 32 ounces in the morning. Others I know add another glass of celery juice to their diet in the afternoon or evening. Feel free to include a blended juice in the afternoon, for a health boosting pick me up. Add other fruits and veggies, ginger, cilantro, or other herbs. Have fun creating your own blends. Try this Apple, Ginger Celery Blend.
Does the celery need to be organic?
Organic celery is great, however, regular celery can be used with the same healing results. Make sure that the celery is washed well, using a dishwashing soap such as Seventh Generation.
How Long Should I Drink Celery Juice?
The simple answer to that question is, for the rest of your long and healthy life! This juice will continue to bring healing and restoration to the body. I crave it. As I prepare the juice, my body responds by vibrating at a higher frequency, in anticipation. I know…that’s wild. When I travel, or if I have several hectic days in a row and miss my morning celery juice, I can feel the difference. I don’t want to go very many days without my green elixir.
The Biggest Question
The biggest question I get is,
“So what are the health benefits?”
Which is another way of asking,
“If I’m going to go to the trouble of making celery juice every morning, is it WORTH IT?”
Yes, it is so worth it.
Celery juice delivers these healing benefits to the body:
- Lowers inflammation
- Heals the entire digestive system

- Supports weight loss
- Help eczema and psoriasis
- Fights infections
- Heals acne and other skin conditions

That’s a lot of healing! And it is ongoing, and cumulative.
My Celery Juice Healing Story
I began drinking celery juice, March 2016, hoping to calm the inflammation that was raging throughout my body. By July of the same year, I had read the book, Medical Medium, and switched to a plant based lifestyle.
What a difference in my life celery juice made. It led me to recognizing that my body does better when I eat plants only. I have healed, in so many ways.
The immediate improvement I experienced, thanks to celery juice, was a healed digestive system. I kept Tums in my purse, car, and multiple locations in the house, due to severe acid reflux and indigestion and took a variety of over the counter anti-acids. My whole digestive system was a mess. I suffered from irritable bowel syndrome, gallbladder inflammation, stomach and abdominal pain, and what I called a sensitive gut. Later I discovered that’s a real condition. The nerve ending in my intestines were hyper sensitive, causing me pain when I ate high fiber foods.
All of this has healed, thanks to celery juice.
And I feel better overall. My skin is more clear and vibrant. And I no longer take meds for high blood pressure.
I will drink celery juice for the rest of my life. When I get up and move into the kitchen, I just fix my juice. I have a routine that works for me, prepping the celery, juicing, and then immediately cleaning the juicer while I sip my green drink. In case you are wondering, I follow celery juice with a fruit or detox smoothie…and that makes up my morning meal.
