I drank celery juice everyday for a month and here’s what happened...
A few months ago, I decided to FINALLY try the global phenomenon “celery juice trend” brought on by the Medical Medium aka Anthony William. This is something I wanted to try for years but just never got around to doing. I was really intrigued by this because of the supposed healing benefits of celery juice, including: brain fog, acne,anxiety, eczema, ADHD, thyroid disorders, autoimmune disorders, Lyme’s disease, gastrointestinal diseases and digestive issues (to name a few.) Personally, I have major digestive issues and anxiety, so those two issues were my main reasons for trying. For anyone with GI issues or anxiety, I truly feel like we will try anything for relief!
If you’re unfamiliar with the celery juice trend, it is 16 ounces of organic cold-pressed celery juice FIRST thing in the morning. Before coffee, tea or any other supplements & vitamins you take. Luckily for me, I live about two minutes away from an organic vegan cafe that actually has cold-pressed organic celery juice that they make fresh. I wasn’t sure how long I would do this for,which is why I never went and bought a juicer right away. Also, you have to buy so much ( I mean, ALOT of celery) in order to make 16 ounces everyday and the idea of cleaning and chopping the celery and then cleaning the juicer every single day was so unappealing to me. However if i didn’t have the convenience of living so close to this celery haven, I may have just sucked it up and tried juicing myself.
Greens are easy for me to ingest. I actually enjoy the taste of vegetables and green juices, so I don’t mind the taste of celery. You shouldn’t add anything to your celery juice, it needs to be plain and simple;no lemon or ACV in it either. Honestly, I find the juice pretty refreshing right away, but towards the end of the glass you kind of just want it to be over and you can’t wait to have coffee or tea. If you’re not someone that likes celery at all or hates green juices, this is not gonna be your jam. It can definitely take some getting used to, but if you’re like me, I will pretty much do anything in the name of beauty or health!
When I say I drank celery juice every single morning for 31 days straight I am not lying. I never skipped or missed a day and even on rainy days and Sundays I made sure to go and get the damn celery juice because I truly wanted to see if this helped or worked. When I commit to something I really commit.
So now for the verdict: I will first say the one “downside” that I had before I list the benefits that I noticed. This may be TMI for some, but I’m just being honest. I had diarrhea for weeks on this cleanse. I actually was a little concerned about this until I spoke to two nutritionists who assured me that that is completely normal and they had done this cleanse and experienced this same thing. Its a true CLEANSE and your body is getting rid of toxins! So thats something I kind of wished that I had been aware of before I started.
As far as the benefits I experienced. My skin was amazing. Like JLo glow, flawless, amazing. And this is in the days of mask wearing! My skin was literally glowing and I didn’t have one single blemish for weeks. My stomach was much less bloated, I was sleeping like an angel every single night, rarely did I experience any kind of anxiety, and I had such great energy throughout the day. I don’t drink coffee, I’m a tea girl but some days after I had my celery juice I had so much energy I didn’t even feel like I needed to have it!
Why did I stop? For one, price. The place I was buying it at was $10 a juice. That’s $280 a month on celery juice! I am not a cheap person, but I felt like I should start switching over to a juicer and doing this myself. Secondly, laziness, I honestly just fell off. However after writing this post, I have felt inspired to do this all over again, and maybe even for longer! This may or may not work for you, I am not a doctor, I am an EYEBROW expert. I am simply sharing this with you for your own knowledge to take and do whatever you like with it!
