So you’re ready to jump on the celery juice train; welcome! If you’ve got a juicer, plug that baby in and juice a whole head of celery—wa-la! But what if you want to try this whole celery juice thing out before investing in a new appliance? Dust off the ‘ol high-speed blender—we’ve got the perfect recipe. Whether you’ve got a Magic Bullet, Nutribullet, Ninja, or some reliable blender bought decades ago, you can make celery juice in a blender. To remove the fiber, you’ll also need a fine-mesh nut milk bag. Otherwise, you’ll have a celery smoothie and no one wants that.Celery’s pungent flavors were once covered in globs of peanut butter and raisin ants. But no more. Thanks to Medical Medium, Anthony William, thousands of people now enjoy celery juice daily and by itself. William believes celery juice to be a “miraculous superfood” with “undiscovered sodium cluster salts,” and though science may still be catching upto such claims, it’s not unreasonable to point out how much we still don’t know about food and our health.
Medical Medium, William recommends 16 ounces of straight celery juice on an empty stomach. How much celery is that before it’s juiced? About one full head of celery will produce roughly 16 ounces. If you have chronic illness and symptoms, William recommends drinking twice as much celery juice (24 to 32 ounces) in either one sitting or twice during the day on an empty stomach or 30 minutes before a meal.
blender, preferably high-speed.
fine-mesh nut-milk bag
one bunch of celery (organic if possible)
Chop celery into chunks; add to blender.
Add a splash of water and blend until smooth. Add more water if needed; use as little water as your blender will allow.
Place nut-milk bag over a bowl. Pour blended celery mush into the nut-milk bag.
Squeeze juice into the bowl, leaving the fibrous mush inside the nut-milk bag.
Compost, save for various uses, or dispose of celery fiber.
Drink juice immediately & enjoy!
If you’re wanting the full benefits of celery juice as outlined by the Medical Medium, you should drink celery juice solo.
However, when starting out, William recommends adding a single apple or cucumber while becoming accustomed to the taste, then weaning it out over time.I’ve seen many recipes where people add just a splash of lime or lemon juice. You might also start by drinking less celery juice and working your way up to the 16 ounces.
While it’s best to drink any juice fresh, celery juice in particular is meant to be consumed immediately. If this isn’t an option, William says it must be drunk within 24 hours and stored in a sealed container in the fridge. Other juices, especially cold pressed juice, can be expected to last up to 72 hours in the fridge.
When will the benefits of drinking celery juice become apparent? Well, there’s no guarantee they will. The answer to this question is far too dependent on the individual. For example, someone treating digestion issues with celery juice versus someone hoping to have clearer skin from drinking celery juice will take notice of different benefits. And those benefits will have different timelines, further complicated by other factors of the individual’s health.
That being said, most people notice some change within the first week and experience some benefits within the first month. However, which benefits and to what degree are impossible to predict. The best thing you can do is write down what benefits you’re looking for, then take notes when relevant and every week to keep track of small wins and learning experiences along the way.
The rest of an individual’s diet is also going to affect what benefits are received and how apparent they are. You can’t outpace a highly processed diet with two cups of celery juice every morning, but someone who already eats (and has been eating) only whole food may also see fewer benefits due to an established level of wellness. The results will be highly individual; but why not give it a try!
When it comes to our health, we have to be our own biggest cheerleader and advocate. While we always want to remind you to seek professional medical help when necessary, there is a broad-reaching (and growing) understanding that we all need to bring wellness into our kitchens at home.
It’s easy to discredit something from a Medical Medium without considering the vast pool of undiscovered knowledge we, as a species, are still figuring out. Having done a large amount of research to consolidate this information, I can tell you that plenty of people have seen real, significant results from drinking celery juice.It’s always important to take a balanced view, to collect data and hold it up to your personal experience. That’s what I would encourage you to do with celery juice. If you feel interested, give drinking celery juice a try for at least a month. Then tell us all about in the comments below! We’d love to hear about your journey.
