WHY SHOULD I DRINK CELERY JUICE?

Pure, fresh celery juice is a miracle elixir, a superfood, an inimitable remedy. He has incredible skills in improving and curing all sorts of health problems.

It is unique and unmatched in its effects, a true savior for anyone suffering from chronic symptoms and illnesses. Thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of people with chronic and unexplained ailments have regained control of their health thanks to 16 ounces (473.176ml) of celery juice drunk on an empty stomach each morning.

No matter what symptoms, complaints, illnesses you have, and no matter how long you've had them, celery juice can help you put them behind you.

Okay, so that was the short version. If you are interested in the long version, please read the article Celery Juice - The Healing Herbal Extract.

Can I also juice celeriac instead of celeriac?

A very clear NO. When I or when Medical Medium talk about celery or celery juice, I am ALWAYS talking about celery stalk / celery. Celeriac is a different plant and it doesn't even come close to the healing properties of celery root. From a botanical point of view, the green stalks belong to the herbs and are so packed with nutrients that the tuber simply cannot keep up.

HOW IS CELERY JUICE PREPARED?

Ingredients:
1 - 2 stalks of celery

Preparation:
Clean, wash and dry the individual stalks of celery and use a juicer to extract the juice from them.
Alternatively, you can use a high-performance mixer. To do this, you have to cut the celery into pieces, puree it into a pulp and then pass it through a nut milk bag, cheesecloth or a very fine sieve.

Since celery juice oxidizes very quickly, it is best to drink it immediately after preparation.

Read my article Celery Juice - 2 Ways to Prepare it for more detailed information on this topic.

WHAT IS THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF CELERY JUICE TO BENEFIT FROM THE HEALING PROPERTIES?

The magic amount is 16 ounces = 473.176ml, or about half a liter.

For many struggling with chronic ailments, increasing the amount to 24-32 oz, or roughly 710-950ml, per day can also be extremely helpful.

HOW MUCH CELERY DO I NEED FOR 16 OZ / APPROX. 500ML JUICE?

A large or one or two smaller sprigs of celery are usually enough.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DRINK CELERY JUICE?

The best time to drink celery juice is in the morning on an empty stomach, before eating any solid food. You can drink water or water with freshly squeezed lemon (or lime) juice beforehand, but then you should wait at least 15 to 30 minutes before drinking your celery juice.

Celery juice is a medicinal, not a caloric drink, which means that you will definitely need breakfast afterwards to recharge your batteries for the rest of the morning. Again, just wait 15 to 30 minutes after your celery juice before consuming anything else.

Another plus of consuming celery juice first thing in the morning is that your digestive juice will be strengthened and anything else you eat that day will be more easily digested.

If you are unable to prepare and drink your celery early in the morning before eating anything else, the second best option is to have it at least 15 to 30 minutes before or 30 to 60 minutes after a meal take at any other time of the day.

If you drink 32 ounces of celery juice a day, you may prefer to split it into two servings. You could drink the first half in the morning on an empty stomach and the second half in the late afternoon or early evening, at least 15 to 30 minutes before you have your next meal.

WHICH JUICE IS RECOMMENDED?

I personally use the Greenstar Elite 5000 from Tribest * and I am very happy with it. The quality of the juice and the juice yield are very high and this juicer is also recommended by Medical Medium. But depending on how much money you have available or want to invest, there are also other companies that make good juicers, for example Omega * and Aicok. * The best and most recommended juicers for celery juice are Slow Juicer / Cold Press Juicer, in which the juice is extracted slowly and without generating heat, which has an enormous impact on the quality and nutrient density of the juice.

But every juicer does its job, and if you only have one centrifugal juicer at home and you can't or don't want to afford a better one, then it's better to have any juicer than no juicer at all!

DOES IT HAVE TO BE ORGANIC CELERY?

Organic quality is definitely best, but if you can't get it then don't worry, conventional celery is a lot better than no celery at all.

In this case, it is only important that you wash each individual bar thoroughly, for example with a drop of fragrance-free dishwashing detergent * per bar, and then rinse well. If you don't have natural dish soap, wash each rod thoroughly with warm water.

CAN I PREPARE AND STORE CELERY JUICE?

It is clearly best to drink celery juice immediately after juicing. If you can't do otherwise, you can prepare it, but you should never let it sit for more than 24 hours. In the event that you store it in a tightly sealable jar and in the refrigerator, it would be essential.

SHOULD I LEAVE THE LEAVES ON OR CUT OFF?

You can cut them off or juice them together with the sticks, just as you like. Some prefer to remove them as they often tend to taste a bit bitter.

CAN I MAKE MULTIPLE SERVINGS OF CELERY JUICE AND FREEZE?

If you can't drink your celery juice right after it's made and prepping and freezing is your only option, then it's okay. However, this is the absolute last resort, if there really is no other way, you shouldn't make it a habit. Fresh is always the best and most effective, because freezing reduces the medicinal properties enormously.

CAN I WASH AND CUT CELERY THE EVENING IN ORDER TO JUICE IT THE NEXT MORNING?

Yes, this is a fantastic way to be prepared the next morning and save some time.

WHAT IF I CANNOT LOOK THE TASTE OF CELERY JUICE?

Celery juice is by far the most effective when it is enjoyed PUR, without any other ingredient.

But if you find pure celery juice too intense, you can juice a cucumber and / or an apple along with the celery. This is a great way to get used to the taste of celery. The more you get used to it, the more you should increase the proportion of celery until you can finally drink pure celery juice, because only pure celery juice can offer the greatest healing properties.

While other green or vegetable juices, such as spinach, kale, parsley, cucumber, coriander, apples, or whatever, are great, they should be consumed at a different time of the day rather than with your celery juice. These mixtures work differently than your strongest weapon in the fight against (chronic) illness: pure celery juice on an empty stomach.

IS IT OK TO ADD LEMON OR LIME TO MY CELERY JUICE?

Celery juice works best when drunk straight. Any added ingredient dilutes the medicinal properties, making the juice less potent. This applies to lemons and limes as well as to ginger, apples, oranges, greens, carrots and beetroot as well as to any other imaginable ingredient. Wait 15 to 30 minutes after drinking your celery juice before consuming anything else.

IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN ADD TO THE CELERY JUICE TO MAKE IT MORE EFFECTIVE?

Celery juice is a remedy and a real blessing for anyone struggling with chronic ailments. Millions of people around the world have already been able to benefit from its healing properties.

This has not gone unnoticed, and unfortunately there are now individuals trying to take advantage of celery juice and its popularity. They change the recipe slightly and add new ingredients to call it their own and make a profit from it. They recommend adding things like collagen, apple cider vinegar, or activated charcoal to the celery juice, but they actually destroy and denature the wonderful celery juice and rob it of its healing properties. In addition, they unfortunately also bring substances into your body that are by no means beneficial for your healing.

To protect your own health, it is important that you understand how misleading these trends are that threaten the purity and potency of pure celery juice. These trends were started by people who don't even believe in celery juice and its healing properties. They didn't even know of the existence of celery juice as a remedy until the worldwide celery juice movement started by Medical Medium decades ago reached millions of people as word got around of how effective and helpful it was for all kinds of health symptoms and complaints is.

These money- and power-hungry, investor-backed trendsetters don't even know what exactly makes celery juice so effective, for example they don't know about the undiscovered sodium cluster salts that destroy the cell membranes of pathogens so that they can be killed, and on the other hand, build up the hydrochloric acid in the stomach again. Without understanding how and why celery juice works, these trendsetters cannot know how it must be consumed so that all its benefits can be enjoyed, and how crucial it is that no ingredients such as collagen, apple cider vinegar, or activated charcoal are added to it.

Knowing the correct way to drink celery juice is essential to be able to experience its healing properties. There are a few nutrients that can activate or even enhance the healing properties of celery juice. Magnesium, L-glutamine and choline are among them, for example.

CAN I JUST EAT OR MIX CELERY INSTEAD OF JUICE?

The reason why the celery should be juiced and not simply eaten is that the considerable healing effects can only be fully exploited by juicing and removing the pomace / fiber.

There is currently a trend that recommends only mixing fruits and vegetables and not juicing them, as all fiber remains in the drink when mixed. Try not to be misled by this trend, especially in the case of celery. If you left the fiber in, you would not be able to experience the unique healing properties of celery juice.

Eating celery is helpful and should be part of your diet, but you simply won't be able to eat enough celery to get the same benefits as juicing it.

You might not be getting the concentrated cluster salts that are so incredibly important to your health.

These cluster salts ensure that the hydrochloric acid in the stomach is rebuilt and strengthened, which is important in order to be able to break down proteins. If proteins are not broken down properly in the stomach, this leads to signs of putrefaction in the intestines. Solid hydrochloric acid is also needed to kill the pathogens that enter your system through your mouth.

In addition, the cluster salts in celery juice increase and strengthen your bile, which is essential to break down fat and kill pathogens that have found their way into your body.

Only in its juiced form can celery strengthen your central nervous system and remove old toxins, such as old medicines, from your liver.

IS IT OK TO DRINK CELERY JUICE DURING PREGNANCY?

Yes, celery juice is not only safe, but also healthy and helpful during pregnancy.

Still, everyone is different and you should always listen to your body and your gut feeling. If celery juice feels too cleansing, too detoxifying for you, then you can try 16oz (approx. 500ml) pure cucumber juice instead.

If you have any concerns, you can speak to someone you trust, for example your trusted doctor, first.

CAN NURSING WOMEN ALSO DRINK CELERY JUICE?

Celery juice is not only okay but also fantastic for breastfeeding. It can provide the baby with an abundance of trace elements, vitamin C and neurotransmitter chemicals such as sodium cluster salts, so that healthy, strong organs can develop.

The celery juice also helps cleanse and detoxify breast milk so that the baby can get the best breast milk possible.

CAN BABIES AND CHILDREN ALSO DRINK CELERY JUICE?

Yes! Celery juice is great for the health and development of children and babies.

On the Medical Medium Instagram page you can find hundreds of photos and stories of children and even babies who have been able to use celery juice to improve and cure bad symptoms and ailments such as eczema, autism, AD (H) D etc. Celery juice is completely safe and so packed with healing and health-promoting nutrients that children can only benefit from them.

CAN I ADD ICE CUBES IN MY CELERY JUICE?

It is better not to add ice to your celery juice as it will literally dilute the healing properties.

IS IT NORMAL FOR MY STAIR GAIT TO CHANGE SINCE I HAVE CELERY JUICE?

It is entirely possible that some people may see a change in their chair hang after they start drinking celery juice. This is a perfectly normal detox reaction that can occur in people with high levels of toxins.

Celery juice kills unwanted bacteria in the intestines and also helps cleanse the liver. This can lead to loose stools or even diarrhea, especially when the body flushes toxins from a very stressed liver.

Today almost every single person struggles to some degree with a liver burdened with toxins, whether they know it or not, which can lead to a variety of symptoms and ailments.

Your stool will become firmer over time, and you will find that your digestion will become more regular and better than it ever was.

If you find celery juice too cleansing, you can also try 16oz (approx. 500ml) pure cucumber juice first. Cucumber juice doesn't have the same benefits that celery juice does, but it's very gentle and a great choice until you can start over with the celery juice.

I GO AFTER DRINKING CELERY JUICE, IS THAT NORMAL?

Diarrhea is a perfectly normal detox phenomenon that some people experience with large amounts of toxins in their bodies. Celery juice kills bad bacteria in the intestines and flushes them out, which can lead to loose stools or diarrhea, especially at the beginning.

In addition to the intestines, celery juice also cleanses the liver, which can also lead to diarrhea if a lot of toxins have built up in the person's liver.

If the reaction is really extreme, you can start with a smaller amount of celery juice, such as 2-8 oz (about 60-240ml), and work your way up from there. If that is still too intense, then try 16oz (approx. 500ml) pure cucumber juice.Cucumber juice is a little gentler and very pleasant in taste, and a good temporary solution until you can trade celery juice.

AFTER DRINKING CELERY JUICE, I FEEL EXTREMELY TIRED AND MY SYMPTOMS Worse, WHAT'S THE REASON?

This is a normal detox response that can occur especially in people who have toxic blood. Toxic blood can arise from viruses such as Epstein-Barr virus and / or bacteria such as streptococcus, which can be a mild infection that someone has (consciously or unconsciously) had for years.

The mineral salts in celery juice begin to kill these pathogens, which can cause some people who are already experiencing on-and-off symptoms such as extreme fatigue to feel a temporary (increased) return of symptoms.

However, this phase will not last and pass, and is an important step on the way to long-term, symptom-free health.

WILL MY SYMPTOMS GET AGAIN WHEN I START DRINKING CELERY JUICE?

Celery juice is very healing, and the special sodium cluster salts will immediately start killing pathogens such as viruses (e.g. Epstein-Barr virus and herpes zoster) and bacteria (e.g. streptococcus) in your body.

For some people, especially those who have had recurrent symptoms such as extreme fatigue, this can mean a temporary return or worsening of symptoms.

However, these symptoms will be short-lived and limited in duration as long as your body heals and cleanses itself. This may be an uncomfortable but very important phase that is an essential step towards a long-term healthy future WITHOUT symptoms.

Not infrequently, however, it also happens that someone experiences an intensification of symptoms and blames the celery juice directly, while in truth completely different reasons are responsible. This could be anything that is going on in the affected person's body, life, or diet at this point.

It is extremely important and wonderful to develop a feeling for yourself, your needs and your well-being, and to observe what is good for you and what is not. You can learn to understand what is happening in your own body, which life (style) circumstances make you feel better or worse, which nutritional decisions lead to well-being and which lead to increased symptoms.

Never in human history has it been so important to empower yourself to become an expert on the real causes of your symptoms and ailments. You can learn and understand how to properly support your body in getting (or staying) healthy, and that is worth its weight in gold.

I have increased gas and an uncomfortable feeling of fullness after drinking celeriac juice, what is the reason?

Celery juice is extremely digestive by stimulating the liver to produce more bile and instantly increasing the stomach's hydrochloric acid production.

The hydrochloric acid then immediately begins to break down old, undigested, decaying protein and old, rancid fats that have been deposited on the bottom of the stomach and in the small intestine for decades.

When these proteins and fats dissolve, the gas and bloating go away in many people who have had chronic complaints. For some, however, (more) flatulence and a feeling of fullness can develop, from mild to severe, depending on how many toxins and old, putrid, undigested manure are in the gastrointestinal tract of the person concerned.

If these people continue to drink celery juice, long-term and in the recommended manner, the toxins in their gastrointestinal tract and associated discomfort, including gas and bloating, will go away. Provided, of course, that the rest of the diet is also healing and conforms to Medical Medium recommendations.

I HAVE A STOMACH AFTER DRINKING MY CELERY JUICE, WHAT'S THE REASON?

This is what happens when the nerves in someone's stomach are very sensitive. The vagus nerve is the main nerve that sends signals and helps the stomach function properly. Mild viral infections, for example caused by herpes zoster or Epstein-Barr, often produce a large amount of neurotoxins (nerve toxins) that can lead to a slight inflammation of the vagus nerve.

When you drink your celery juice, it starts clearing the tiny nerve endings in your stomach lining of the neurotoxins, which can cause a mild reaction.

Many people also have a number of bacteria in their stomachs such as Escherichia coli (E. coli), streptococcus and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). These bacteria die off relatively quickly, which leads to cramping and can be quite painful for a while.

ARE THERE NOT TOO MANY OXALATES (= OXALIC ACID SALT AND ESTERS) IN CELERY JUICE?

There is a myth that certain types of green leafy vegetables and herbs contain very high levels of oxalates and are therefore harmful. This is completely inaccurate information and it prevents many people from consuming the foods that are supposedly too rich in oxalates. As a result, they cannot get the powerful and healing nutrients these plants possess and which they really need so badly. Contrary to popular belief, oxalates are simply not a health problem.

There is not a single fruit or vegetable on this planet that does not contain oxalates. Vegetables known to have high oxalate levels, such as leafy green vegetables and celery, are among the foods with the broadest range of nutrients available to us.

Medical research and science is not clear that all fruits, vegetables and leafy vegetables also contain anti-oxalates, which prevent the oxalates from doing the damage to our body that current trends are causing .

In truth, these foods do us no harm, on the contrary, they provide us with valuable, healing nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that are incredibly important for our health.

CAN I TAKE CELERY JUICE POWDER OR CELERY POWDER INSTEAD OF DRINKING FRESH CELERY JUICE?

No, celery juice powder and celery powder cannot replace fresh celery juice. Celery juice powder and celery powder have none of the advantages that 16oz (approx. 500ml) freshly squeezed celery juice has to offer.

Celery powders and celery supplements will become more popular and a real trend in the future as the celery juice movement gets bigger and better known and cures more and more people and all kinds of people will try to make a profit from it.

Try not to fall for these trends, as they are a waste of money and nowhere near the healing properties of fresh, pure, daily celery juice.

DOES CELERY JUICE CONTAIN NITRATES?

Celery and celery juice cannot contain any activated or harmful nitrates.

It is true that nitrates are naturally found in celery, but only after the celery or celery juice is oxidized or dehydrated (parched). As long as the juice is fresh and not yet oxidized, nitrates cannot develop. The same also applies to any other herb, (leaf) vegetable or fruit.

But even this naturally occurring nitrate can never be harmful to the human body in any way. Celery powder and celery juice powder are oxidized and dried, which means that they contain naturally occurring nitrates that were created during the oxidation process.

However, these nitrates have nothing to do with the nitrates, which are considered harmful and which some people find unpleasant. Nitrate is not the same as nitrate, just as man is not the same as man, salt is not the same as salt, water is not the same as water, sugar is not the same as sugar and protein is not the same as protein. The nitrates that occur naturally in oxidized celery cannot be compared at all to the nitrates that are added to meat, sausage and all sorts of other products. The latter are actually harmful.

Also important to know is that nitrates are not the same as nitrites. For example, celery powder, even though it contains naturally occurring nitrates, cannot be used to preserve foods like meat or pickles because it still does not contain nitrites. Fresh celery juice does not contain any nitrites either.

Nothing that occurs naturally in celery or celery juice is harmful to the human body. The same goes for pure celery powder and pure celery juice powder. Unless you have a company that makes the powder or mixes it in with another product, you add harmful nitrates to it.

You are on the safe side with your freshly squeezed celery juice, it cannot contain any harmful nitrates as long as you do not add some yourself. If you avoid celery juice because you fear that it contains harmful nitrates, you are unfortunately - and unnecessarily - depriving yourself of the unique healing properties that only celery juice can give you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FEEL THE BENEFITS OF CELERY JUICE DRINKED EVERY DAY?

That depends entirely on what state of health you are in. Almost everyone will notice one or the other improvement within the first week of drinking celery juice in the right amount and in the right way every day. Some even feel an improvement after the very first juice.

It depends entirely on the respective person and their living conditions, on their health problems and symptoms and with how many and with which pathogens and toxins their liver is burdened. Each of us comes into contact with toxic substances on a daily basis, and most of them end up in our livers. These can be all kinds of chemicals and poisons, such as pesticides, solvents, herbicides, and heavy metals, to name a few.

If someone is struggling with weight problems, has a lot of putrefying and rancid fat deposits in the large intestine, and / or large amounts of bacteria (e.g. streptococcus) in the intestines, this also affects the duration of the healing process.

The amount of stress someone is exposed to, the foods and beverages someone ingests in addition to celery juice, and all other habits and lifestyle aspects, of course, also play a large role in the speed at which someone can perceive improvements .

But most people progress relatively quickly.

Sometimes people get so used to their improved attitude towards life after having been drinking their celery juice regularly for quite a while that they completely forget how much worse they were before. Only when you stop doing it for a while and promptly no longer feel so good do you really realize how fundamental celery juice is and was for your wellbeing.

But even if you are one of those people who cannot see or feel progress so quickly, be aware that it is happening anyway. Everyone who drinks celery juice benefits directly from it, as the celery juice starts to work and triggers healing processes as soon as it enters your body. This is very important to know and understand.

Don't lose heart if it takes you a while before you can really see and feel the benefits. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about, because I also belong to these people. Just make yourself aware again and again that internal healing processes have been taking place since your first sip of pure celery juice, even if you cannot perceive them yet.

ARE THERE NOT TOO MUCH SODIUM SALT IN CELERY JUICE?

Salt is not the same as salt, just as sugar is not the same as sugar. The sugar concentrate corn syrup (fructose-glucose syrup), for example, is absolutely harmful to health, and cannot be compared to an apple and its naturally contained sugar, which is wonderful for health and provides an abundance of important nutrients. So don't get confused by the idea that all salt is bad, because that's not true.

So if anyone claims there is too much salt in celery juice, it is simply not true. The sodium cluster salts in celery juice represent a subgroup of sodium. There are many more different trace elements and sodium subgroups in celery juice than is known to science and research.

Sodium cluster salts are so beneficial to the human body that we cannot get enough of them. 16oz (approx. 500ml) freshly squeezed and pure celery juice provide us with these sodium cluster salts that we so urgently need.

Celtic sea salt or the pink rock salt from the Himalayas are completely different forms of sodium. No matter how high the quality of the salt in question is, adding it to a drink or meal has nothing to do with what a sufficient amount of sodium cluster salts from celery juice can do.

Sodium cluster salts are the only form of sodium that can destroy pathogens and aid in both detoxifying the body and renewing electrolytes and neurotransmitter chemicals.

The sodium in celery juice is a medicinal sodium that is essential for the bloodstream and the entire body, whereas one should be careful and timid when consuming the sodium that comes in the form of salt, no matter how high its quality seems.
