Today, I’d love to chat with you about the 5-month mark of drinking celery juice. As you may have read about in my last post on the topic, the trend of drinking celery juice is a popular one, largely due to Anthony Williams’ stance on the topic.
Williams, who published the book Medical Medium, has a strong connection with Spirit. As he tells it, he has been able to “know” and “see” inside of people’s bodies to better understand the root cause of illness. Williams claims one of the best ways to cleanse the liver, get rid of bugs, and improve the immune system is to drink plain celery juice (no additions like lemon or apple) on an empty stomach.
Because his approach cannot be validated by modern science (though he is confident this will change in the next 10-20 years), most of the information on celery juicing is anecdotal. If this raises some red flags, I understand. To better understand it myself, I embarked on a challenge of drinking celery juice EACH morning for 4 months.
Today, I drink celery juice every other morning because of its price (it went from $1/bunch to nearly $4 bunch!). The important part is that I do it, however, because of the benefits experienced. Aaron, my fiance, joins me in the routine, as well.

After 5 Months
My skin isn’t perfect. But, it is a walk in the park compared to the painful, cystic acne I suffered with for over 10 years. Most importantly, it’s a lot less ruddy since drinking celery juice. (I also eat a high plant-based diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, and tubers aka sweet potatoes).
Aaron and I both agree that drinking celery juice on an empty stomach:
- Makes us feel “cleaner” on a cellular level
- Seems to keep us bug-free (I haven’t been sick in a while!)
- Reduces mental fog (or improves focus)
- Subtly heightens energy levels
- Reduces bloat/digestive problems
For me, especially, celery juice seemed to be a major key in finally clearing my skin. When I eat “naughty” foods or don’t practice food-combining protocols, I might break out or get bloated. But, when I stick to a simple, plant-based diet and juice celery at least every other day, my skin is the clearest it’s been since I’ve been 11-years-old. That’s saying something.
Beyond those improvements, we haven’t noticed much. But then again, Aaron and I are pretty healthy humans. We are both quite active, work full-time jobs, and eat local, primarily organic food that is made from scratch (granted, me better than him). We’re also passionate and work on hobbies that delight us! Those are all essential for good health, if you ask me.
If you want to learn more about the potential benefits of celery juice and why it become a world-wide phenomenon, read more here. For now, I’m going to wrap up this post with a follow-up recap. Regularly consuming celery seems to help both Aaron and me feel and look better, so we’ll likely keep it up for years to come. If this changes, I’ll let you know.
