Have you heard about the benefits of drinking celery juice? If you haven’t, you’ve been living under a rock.  You can’t get away from the hype of this latest craze.  In this blog, Dr. Ellenhorn will weigh in about this latest trend every blogger has been hyping.

Anthony Williams aka The Medical Medium, who has no nutrition or medical training, claims that he is able to converse with the Spirit of Compassion, who “provides him with extraordinarily accurate health information that’s often

far ahead of its time”. 

Williams claims that celery juice can heal because it is full of “undiscovered cluster salts”. He has convinced throngs of influencers, including Gwyneth Paltrow, to convince the rest of us that celery juice is medicinal and can “cure chronic and mystery illnesses” and “kill off unproductive bacteria in the gut”.

Dr. Ellenhorn believes that Anthony Williams is making some hefty claims. “Pseudoscience is not science”. If drinking celery juice cures many of today’s most hostile diseases, it would have scientific evidence to back it up. Considering how popular drinking celery juice has become, we should see a marked decline in the number of diagnoses of disease.

Dr. Ellenhorn is adamant that drinking celery juice cannot harm people but what can be harmful is when celery juice is used to treat a disease that requires medical intervention.  The claims that celery juice can cure diabetes, is just astounding. Drinking celery juice will not cure diabetes. However if you are a diabetic and are making healthier choices when it comes to eating and exercising, you are already helping yourself. Drinking celery juice is not the cure, it is simply a part of making healthier food choices, and thereby you are lowering your glucose levels. It’s not about the celery juice but about making overall better choices.

So the bottom line is this. The celery juice craze is here and will be replaced by something else. Celery farmers are celebrating along with everyone who is certain that their bodies are alkalized. So go ahead, and raise that 16 oz glass of celery juice, consume it on an empty stomach, but understand that what you’re drinking is simply hydrating…just like water.

It’s hard to believe that in 2019, we are so prone to falling for outrageous claims but hey it can’t hurt.
