Celery Juice Is All The Rage

by

If you’re on Instagram, you definitely will have seen & heard everything there is to know about celery juice. It became popular because Anthony William aka Medical Medium started discussing all the benefits on multiple podcasts. He raved about how celery juice is healing & magical. His one stipulation was that it has to be consumed on an empty stomach, totally alone, first thing in the morning.

Being the human guinea pig that I am, I’ve tried this for the last month & a half & while I don’t have super powers, I can see why he raves about it. On the other hand, my girlfriend Ingrid from Monaco is a big fan of actually eating & chewing your food opposed to drinking it. So instead of drinking celery juice, she’s always finding ways to add more celery to meals.

So to lay it all out for you, there are definitely two sides to this coin. I like both, & will continue to do both. But ultimately Anthony & Ingrid have both encouraged me to add more celery to my diet & I have.

Let’s get to the nitty gritty on why celery has super powers.

THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL DOES CELERY:

♡ anti-inflammatory

♡ reduces high cholesterol

♡ high in antioxidants

♡ lowers high blood pressure

♡ cleanses the liver

♡ low in calories but rich in electrolytes, antioxidants, potassium, B vitamins & Vitamin C.

♡ fights infections with antibacterial & antimicrobial properties

♡ helps with bloating because of a diuretic effect

♡ aids digestion

♡ reduces the risk of UTIs ( yes please )

How I add celery to my diet is by drinking it on an empty stomach, adding it to my smoothies, or as Ingrid does, chopping it up & adding it to salads & pastas. There are so many ways to get creative with it because it doesn’t have a very strong taste. The main benefit of it that I’m OBSESSED with, is that it’s really good for your skin. Definitely a skin food.

It’s full of Vitamin C which we mentioned, but because it’s a detox tonic it really helps with acne. Since fiber has been such a hot topic lately, you should also know that celery is filled with fiber ( when you eat it whole, not when you juice it ).

So to give you a little back story, Medical Medium says: “For decades a grassroots global healing movement has been building: drinking 16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach every morning. Today, millions of people around the world are participating and experiencing the benefits for themselves.

Why? Because celery juice, when consumed in the right way, is a powerful and miraculous healing remedy and people are noticing the benefits it provides, 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.”

People all over the world & even celebs are healing themselves. You may might have even seen Kim Kardashian on Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s using it to spike her psoriasis. & if we’re going to get specific, Anthony was actually on the show. He deems it as one of the most powerful medicines of our time.

TSC Hot Tip: Make sure you’re have organic celery. Also, if you’re going to order it at a juice bar, I suggest bringing your own cup & silicone straw. This way you know you aren’t getting a gross plastic cup & straw filled with BPA.

If you’re on a diet or weight loss plan, this is a great thing to add in. Celery & celery juice will also help any gut problems, will help your digestion think faster & keep things moving more efficiently- if ya know what I mean.

Anyway like I said, if you’re going to try the juice route, drink it as soon as you wake up, on an empty stomach & wait 20-30 minutes before you eat anything else. & if you’d rather add it to your food just chop it up & throw it in a salad or pasta sauce. & smoothies too. Of course, make sure you’re always washing your veggies first too!

HOW TO MAKE CELERY JUICE IN A JUICER:

♡ Grab a bunch of celery then cut off the base & the top of the stalks.

♡ Wash the celery thoroughly.

♡ Feed the celery through the tube of your juicer.

♡ Drink juice immediately.

sidenote: one bunch of celery will make about 1.5 cups of juice.

HOW TO MAKE CELERY JUICE IN A BLENDER:

If you don’t have a juicer to make celery juice, don’t sweat it! You can make it in a blender too.

♡ Grab a bunch of celery then cut off the base & the top of the stalks.

♡ Wash the celery thoroughly.

♡ Cut the celery stalks into quarters.

♡ Place all the celery in the blender with 1/8 cup of water.

♡ Blend until smooth then strain out the juice with a nut milk bag or a very fine mesh strainer.

♡ Drink juice immediately.

Personally, I feel like a fucking goddess drinking celery juice every morning. There’s just something about it. The whites of my eyes are whiter & I have more energy. I just feel ‘healthier’ & that’s the only way I can describe it.

I would love to know all of your experiences with celery &/or celery juice & if you have any crafty ways of hiding it in meals.

In the meantime can Anthony PLEASE come on the podcast? I really need to pick his brain.

    I tried it for several months but didn’t really feel any effect other than I had to be near a bathroom 30 minutes after drinking it! Can’t go wrong with drinking 16oz of fresh juice first thing in the morning but i really didn’t notice any changes in my health, skin or weight.

    I LOVE celery juice & drinking it first thing in the morning!! I have been doing this for over a year now & have seen good results through my my acne, weight/digestive system, energy, migraines, mood & mind & lots more! It makes me feel empowered, energetic, clean & ready to have a fulfilled, productive day. Recently, I found out I have Epstein bar, which is a immune “disease” of sorts that comes from previously having mono & a weak immune system. My mom (who has had EB for years & always felt fatigue) & I have been juicing for a little over a year & have truly seen how amazing this method is for EB & just the body & mind as a whole.
    I’m interested in other methods to take in morning or at night like this for weight loss, energy, & other benefits. Xx
