Should You Drink Celery Juice on an Empty Stomach?

Celery Juice has taken the Wellness community by storm thanks to Medical Medium, Anthony William. William says it’s a “miraculous superfood,” with healing properties he’s witnessed first-hand.

While science may not yet validate William's claims about the benefits of celery juice, it does acknowledge that there’s plenty left to be discovered about food's effect on health.

Much of the information on celery juice has been shared by Wellness experts who have tested out celery juice for anywhere from one week to three years, and rave about its benefits. Some report subtle changes (from less cravings to clearer skin), while many proclaim that it has completely shifted their health. 

William is certain the healing potential of celery juice far exceeds what’s been popularized. “I’ve seen thousands of people who suffer from chronic and mystery illnesses restore their health by drinking sixteen ounces of celery juice daily on an empty stomach.”

The Medical Medium recommends drinking celery juice alone. The only exception to this is when first becoming accustomed to the taste—he recommends a single cucumber or apple added to the juice and weaned out over time.

When Is the Best Time to Drink Celery Juice?

William recommends drinking celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach; after, wait at least 15 minutes before having breakfast. William believes this is the optimal time to receive the healing benefits of celery juice. The second-best time to drink celery juice is 15 to 30 minutes before eating something anytime during the day

For those with chronic illness, William suggests drinking twice as much celery juice—24 to 32 ounces, instead of the usual 16 ounces. In this case, you can either drink all of the juice in the morning or split the portion in two: drink half in the morning and half 30 minutes before any meal.

Benefits of Drinking Celery Juice on an Empty Stomach

William believes we receive the most benefit from drinking celery juice on an empty stomach and that the healing properties of the drink have yet to be fully appreciated. William claims that celery contains undiscovered sodium cluster salts that reverse illness. But what does William say drinking celery juice does specifically? 

The main benefit of celery juice is its ability to cleanse the liver; William links various chronic illnesses and diseases to a worn-out liver. Drinking celery juice on an empty stomach allows the liver to cleanse, instead of metabolising the fats, protein, and carbohydrates of a meal.

Quick Review: How to Drink Celery Juice 

  • Drink 16 ounces of celery juice solo, on an empty stomach, at least 15 minutes before breakfast—or 15 to 30 minutes before any meal during the day.
  • If you have a chronic illness, William recommends drinking 24 to 32 ounces, which you can drink in the morning or split into two servings during the day. 
  • Use organic celery when possible.
  • If juice is too bitter, leave out leaves when juicing. 

As with anything, this Wellness hack has its cheerleaders and naysayers. If the idea of drinking celery juice resonates with you, give it a try! It’s best to drink the juice for an extended period of time, while making notes of any changes along the way. In doing so, you’ll be able to decide for yourself if drinking celery juice makes a difference in your health or how you feel. Of course, none of this is intended to replace sound medical attention; please see a doctor if needed.
