The Benefits of Celery Juice for Autoimmune Disease

Celery has become extremely popular in recent times. The person to start the ‘celery juice’ trend is The Medical Medium, Anthony Williams.
Anthony has a gifted knowledge and has shared the amazing healing benefits of this plant.

When I first found out about the celery juice movement in 2018, I asked myself ‘why would anyone want to juice celery, a vegetable that is not so juicy?’.
Shortly after learning about celery juice and it’s benefits, I began incorporating celery juice into my daily routine and like so many others, it has played a considerable part in my own health journey. I noticed after a few weeks of drinking plain celery juice everyday that my skin became more glowy, my joint pain reduced, I became less bloated, it helped heal my acne, and I noticed I was starting to sleep better and had more energy throughout the day.

Anthony Williams, celebrities, influencers, and other health professionals have all mentioned that celery juice can help with autoimmune disease and a range of symptoms connected to autoimmune disease such as arthritis and joint pain, helping with digestive problems, boosting energy, reducing inflammation and brain fog.

Let’s take a look at the benefits of celery juice and how it may help with autoimmune disease.

Celery is rich in nutrients

Getting the right nutrients and eating the right foods can play an important role in helping to ease the pain and manage the symptoms of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and thyroid disorders.

And drinking celery juice is just one way to get some of those nutrients, because celery has so many nutrients and minerals packed inside including potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, and folate.
Celery also contains a small amount of phosphorus, magnesium, and pantothenic acid.

Celery has powerful anti-inflammatory properties

Celery is a great source of phytonutrients which have been shown to reduce inflammation in the digestive system, blood vessels, and organs.
Celery also contains other nutrients and compounds that can help to decrease inflammation in the body, specifically those individuals with inflammatory conditions and autoimmune disease such as Crohn's disease, Lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

A study conducted by the University of Salerno in Italy showed that the leaves of celery contained a compound which was found to reduce the activity of a specific enzyme by reducing inflammatory markers.

Dr Josh Axe, a certified doctor and well known health and wellness physician has stated that celery juice is beneficial for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) because it "contains antioxidants and polysaccharides that are known to act as anti-inflammatories, especially flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants.”

Celery is high in antioxidants

Research and evidence has shown that celery juice has a very high antioxidant content and contains compounds such as caffeic acid, ferulic acid, luteolin, and kaempferol, which all have powerful antioxidant properties.

There have been studies which have documented that oxidative stress and low antioxidants can occur in autoimmune disease, which is why consuming high antioxidant foods such as celery are associated with reducing inflammation and possibly reducing autoimmune symptoms.

Celery supports the digestive system

Celery contains hydrochloric acid (HCl) which can help us digest food more efficiently. Celery juice also helps to raise stomach acid, which is necessary to help break down food in the digestive tract, especially protein.

The gut is known as 'our second brain' and even Hippocrates — the father of modern medicine — suggested that all disease begins in the gut (80% of our immune system is within the gut lining). There has been research and studies that have linked autoimmune diseases like type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis to the health of an individuals gut microbiome. Scientists have even found evidence that a certain gut microbe can trigger autoimmune disease in mice that are prone to such disease and identified the same microbe in people with autoimmune diseases.

Anthony Williams has stated that juicing celery daily can help heal the gut and digestive issues such as SIBO, IBS, constipation, flatulence and acid reflux. According to Anthony, drinking your celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach can help heal your digestive system and improves hydrochloric acid & bile production.

Celery supports the liver

Celery juice contains cluster mineral salts, which gets into the liver and break down viruses and bacteria. (Medical Medium discovered this). The mineral salts contained in celery are also able to support the liver in producing bile.

Celery juice absorbs through the colon wall, to the portal veins and into the liver. The liver is one of the top filter systems in our bodies and the compounds in celery help to support the liver in removing toxins, viruses, bacteria, and heavy metals. Naturally, this is what the liver is designed for, but sometimes the liver can get overloaded with poor lifestyle choices and an exposure to everyday toxins, so celery juice and celery are easy ways incorporate an incredible tool into your life to help support and naturally cleanse the liver.

Celery is hydrating

Dehydration can have an effect on the immune system, reducing the volume of blood and lymphatic fluids which are important for a healthy immune system, particularly those individuals with an autoimmune disease. Staying hydrated is important for people with autoimmune disorders like Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and Graves disease as dehydration can cause a worsening in symptoms like headaches, joint pain, inflammation, cramping, and brain fog.

Drinking celery juice can help with proper hydration of the cells and bodily systems, as celery has such a high water content (contains 95% water).

Along with the benefits above, celery also kills bad bacteria, viruses and pathogens, can repair the ileum in the small intestines, and also contains cluster salts which can help the liver break down viruses and bacteria.

Celery and celery juice has also been said to help with these ailments and medical conditions:

  • Weight issues and water retention
  • Fatigue
  • Eczema
  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Joint pain and arthritis
  • Allergies
  • Improved digestion
  • Hormonal or reproductive issues
  • Gout
  • Gallstones

The Medical Medium has quoted on his website “Celery is able to starve pathogens, plus it contains a multitude of undiscovered mineral salts that act together as an antiseptic. When these powerful mineral salts make contact with viruses such as Epstein-Barr, HHV-6, and shingles; bacteria such as Streptococcus; and other pathogens — troublemakers responsible for chronic illness — the salts begin to break down the pathogens’ cell membranes, eventually killing and destroying them”. (Medical Medium, 2017)
