It seems like everyone from celebrities, to hippy gurus, to the guy at the water cooler are talking about it.
Usually, I’m skeptical when it comes to anything touted as a miracle cure-all. However, as a mom of a daughter who had been sick for two solid years, I was willing to try anything to make her better.
So after dozens of doctors’ appointments, expensive tests and scans, and more specialists with no answers, we moved onto natural healing to look for a cure.
That’s when we discovered celery juice.
Our Journey To Celery Juice
Please note, I am not a dietitian, doctor, or health expert of any kind. I’m just a mom with a sick kid.
Yet drinking celery juice has changed our lives so dramatically I feel compelled to share our story with you…
In the fall of 2017, Ava came home from school one day, complaining of severe abdominal pain.
Historically, Ava was always healthy, and not inclined to be overly dramatic. So after a couple of days of consistent pain, we decided this was not just a tummy bug, and drove to the doctor’s office.
For weeks our doctor ran all the tests on Ava… And I do mean ALL. However, they came back negative.
According to the tests, Ava was not celiac. She also did not have food allergies, diabetes, parasites, a bacterial infection, a blockage, a tumor, or anything else the doctor could test for.
He then passed us on to specialists to determine the problem. Again, no answers whatsoever.
All the while, Ava’s discomfort continued and even increased. She was buckled over in pain day after day, breaking down into tears on a regular basis.
We decided to look into natural healing methods starting with Chinese herbalists and homeopathic and functional medicine doctors.
These providers ran all their own tests. One allergy test came back saying that Ava was allergic to everything we tested her for. The doctor said this was a sign of a traumatized immune system, not real allergies.
We were able to put her on supplements that seemed to help, and we tried all sorts of elimination diets to try to decrease the pain. We did anything and everything recommended to us, to see if it would work.
Ava did find some relief from her pain. Yet her food sensitivities continued to grow, and she had all sorts of strange symptoms popping up.
I was at my wits’ end. We all were.
After almost two years of daily pain for Ava, and me endlessly searching for answers, a friend told me I should read a book called Liver Rescue by Anthony William.
Liver Rescue explains how all our bodily functions are connected to the liver, our body’s filtration system. If our liver is suffering, due to overexposure to toxins in our food and/or environment, or even stress-induced toxins our bodies create, it will cause a breakdown in other parts of our body.
According to the symptoms listed in the book, this was exactly what was happening in Ava’s body.
We decided to give Anthony’s methods a try… Primarily, drinking celery juice every day.
Why You Should Drink Celery Juice Every Day
Our family has been drinking celery juice every day for almost 2 years now. So what’s the verdict?
Ava’s gut is healed!!!
- She is no longer in pain.

There are literally millions of people doing what we are doing, i.e. drinking celery juice to heal their bodies.

In its concentrated form, the natural cluster salts and nutrients gently pull toxins out of your body and heal your digestive tract and liver… Therefore healing other ailments connected to digestion and liver health.
The Celery Juice Cleanse from the Medical Medium
So who started the celery juice trend?
Drinking celery juice has been a natural remedy since the early 1960’s (and maybe even before that.)
However, in recent times Anthony William, AKA the @MedicalMedium, has written multiple books encouraging people to take back their health by drinking celery juice and eating tons of fruit and vegetables.
He has over 3 million Instagram followers and countless converts who share their testimonies all over the web. If you’re dealing with some sort of chronic illness, you should check out his books.
Medical Medium Celery Juice Protocol
In his book Liver Rescue, the Medical Medium suggests this protocol for drinking celery juice…
- Make your celery juice fresh every morning.
- Drink 16 ounces of pure celery juice first, and do not eat or drink anything else for 30 minutes. This allows the celery juice to go through your body medicinally in its concentrated form.
- After 30 minutes, eat raw fruits or veggies to absorb more pure nutrition, before introducing fats into your diet each day.
Anthony William shares a lot more in his book(s) on ways you can cleanse your liver and heal your body. He even has a list of foods to avoid if you struggle with any type of chronic illness.
But the gist of it is pure celery juice, more fruits and veggies, less fats.
If you’ve been sticking with a low-carb (low fruit) high-fat diet, and are noticing health issues, Anthony would say you should reconsider what you’ve been told about carbs… Especially fruit.
Detox Celery Juice Recipe
So… You want to try it, right?
Making celery juice at home is so easy to do. It requires one single ingredient (Ahem, celery) and either a juicer or high-power blender.
You do not add water, lemon juice, or any other ingredient.
You simply juice the celery, strain it, and drink it fresh.
How To Make Celery Juice
As mentioned above, you can make celery juice with a juicer machine, or with a blender.
If you’re unsure about drinking celery juice every day, start with blender celery juice. (Most people have blenders.)

Then if you find you are making large batches for the whole family each day, like I did, you can invest in a juicer.
Looking For The Best Juicer For Celery?
This is the juicer I have. It’s great for cold press juicing. But a friend of mine uses this less expensive one and loves it as well! (Here’s another great easy-clean juicer option.)
There are also inexpensive hand-powered models if you are on a tight budget. I bought this one for travel, and it works very well!
To Make Celery Juice With A Juicer
- Separate and wash the celery stalks. Then shake off all extra moisture.
- Cut the leaves off the top of the stalks. (Most of the bitterness comes from the leaves.)
- Then turn on your juicer and feed the celery stalks through the juicer.

How to Make Celery Juice In The Blender
So you don’t have a juicer, and you’re not sure you want to buy one. No worries!
To make celery juice in the blender all you need is a high power blender, a fine-mesh strainer, and a glass (or pitcher) to collect the juice.
- Separate and wash the celery stalks. Shake off any extra water.
- Cut the leaves off the top of the stalks. (Most of the bitterness comes from the leaves.)
- Roughly chop the celery into pieces. (If you have a Vitamix or Blendtec, you can probably cut the celery into 3-4 inch segments. Yet if you are unsure how powerful your blender is, chop it smaller.)
- Place the chopped celery in the blender. Make sure the lid is on tight. Puree on high until the celery is smooth mush.
- Place the mesh strainer over a glass. Pour the celery pulp into the strainer and wait for the juice to separate down below.
- When it starts to slow, press the celery pulp with your hand (or a spoon) to squeeze out all the juice. Discard the pulp.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Celery Juice Do You Drink Each Day?
According to the Medical Medium, 16 ounces.
When Do I Drink The Celery Juice Cleanse?
Drink this in the morning when your stomach is still empty for the best results. Then I would wait 20 to 30 minutes before drinking anything else.
How Much Celery Does It Take To Make 16 Ounces of Juice?
Usually, it takes one large bunch of celery per 16 ounce glass.
What Does Celery Juice Taste Like?
Like celery! However, it can vary in flavor from bunch to bunch. Some glasses of celery juice are saltier than others. Some have a mild sweet flavor.
However, the bitterness we sometimes associate with celery is mostly concentrated in the leaves, so cut them off before juicing.
Can’t I Just Eat Celery Instead?
Although raw celery is great for you and offers a lot of fiber, it’s not the fiber that provides the medicinal healing qualities. It’s the juice!
Most of us would never eat a whole bunch of celery in one sitting. Yet you can get all that nutrition in a single glass of juice.
Will I Feel A Difference If I’m Already Healthy?
If you are young, eat well, exercise, and have no obvious allergies, ailments, or symptoms… You may not notice any difference when you drink celery juice. It’s still a great preventative measure, but if there’s nothing to heal, there will be no major results.
However, if you are struggling with physical symptoms at any age, you might find the results of celery juice miraculous, as Ava did!
Does Celery Have to Be Organic?
No. Organic is always best, but it’s also usually more expensive.
Celery Juice made from conventional celery is better than no celery juice at all. Just wash the stalks well before juicing.
Does Celery Juice Give You the Runs?
LOL! I’ve had so many questions about this on Instagram, where I first shared our celery juice story.
Yes… At first, the celery juice is going to detox all the crud out of your digestive tract in order to heal the lining of your stomach and intestines. If you eat a classic American diet, there will be some side effects. *wink*
However, as your body gets used to the celery juice, that will go away, and everything will start working properly.
How Long Does It Take Before You See The Results Of Celery Juice?
It depends on what you are dealing with, how long you’ve been dealing with it, and the overall health of your liver.
For us, we all felt changes begin within 2-4 weeks. (That’s why we kept drinking it!)
However, Ava said she felt completely healed after 5 months into her celery juice journey.
I’ve read stories of people healing themselves of Crohn’s disease and Lymes Disease with celery juice, where it took 1-2 years to be completely whole.
If you are struggling with your health, commit to one month and see how different you feel. Then you’ll know if it’s worth juicing!
