    I’ve watch dozens of videos on alternative health options and the one thing I have noticed is that virtually all of the "doctors" are against alternatives and ridicule anything other than the "medical community" wisdom. That alone tells me the alternatives are most likely correct. There is no money in healthy people.

    Celery juice is very good, but you can not rely on celery juice only. gotta remember the nutrients for our body. Celery juice is just an healthy addition. People probably forgets that and ends up low blood pressure or hypoglycaemia. Water is very good for health but if we drink 4 -5 l of water our kidney will be damaged for over functioning. We need to include everything in our diet (calcium, potassium, carbs, good cholesterol, protein) and we get them all by eating different colours food not just eating 1 thing. Electrolytes such as magnesium and potassium are good for our heart and we get them by eating 1 banana a day or any veggies that includes Mg & k.

    Eating celery doesn’t have the same benefit as drinking it .

  4. Ivie on February 15, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Do some research on this guy and you’ll see why he wants you to avoid this stuff. Never fails.

  5. john dumas on February 15, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    A cup of celery has 4% 88mg of the 2300mg limit I have seen online and 20% of the low limit 500mg for bodily functions. Most people get 10,000 mg 400% of the recommended limit. 10,000mg is 4 teaspoons of table salt or 2 teaspoons of the sodium part of salt. You would have to eat about (8 to 10)? celery bunches to reach the max recommended 2300mg limit? Plain celery does not seem to be a sodium problem. But, if you add dips and dressings game over.

    CJ has been amazing for me – I gave “the science” and the guys with all the credentials years of my time and none of it helped. MM helped. Thank you Anthony William.

  7. Hugs on February 15, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    All the Pharmaceutical companies fund the studies on drugs, you just have to follow the paper trail. Doctors push pharmaceuticals instead of healing your body. The health claims have no scientific backing because they wont study it because it doesnt make them money. Stop being duped by these money hunger doctors and drug companies.

  8. JC R 66 on February 15, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    I was out when the guy said to ask your doctor if celery juice could help. Sorry bud….most of them want nothing more than to pump you full of medication. Never forget a follow up appt. with my doctor after i saw a chiropractor for a back pain issue. Told him i was 100% after the chiropractor. He said, "well, if you believe that sort of thing"..

  9. Zemy Rah on February 15, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    This video is exactly why I prefer to not listen to doctors and stick to healing NATURALLY!! THIS DOCTOR IS A HATER…LOL

  10. Leina M on February 15, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    I drink celery first thing in the morning 1 class a day and l go for my morning walking 🚶‍♀️

  11. Bal ance on February 15, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    No no I will not speak to my doctor. No

  12. H C on February 15, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Yeah because Drs are so educated about diet and natural remedies, eye roll!

  13. freedom Uk on February 15, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Ask our doctor I think the doctor put on treatments that ruin your stomach gut so pls stop giving people the wring advice do called ppi acid treatment natural at least natural products don’t guve u sude affect

  14. N Sasuke on February 15, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    So you like to fix everything with medication right?

  15. Kaspar Flück on February 15, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    Medical Doctors still haven’t figured out that food is medicine.

  16. Truth Seeker on February 15, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    This Dr is paidfromBIG PHARMACEUTICAL

  17. Bob on February 15, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    It’s not the celery itself, it’s cutting out carbs that does the trick. Ketones helped me cure chest pain, eye floaters, eczema, fatigue, even my fungus nails are still improving. Clean natural carbs such as potatoes and rice aren’t the issue, it’s the refined sugars and starches that our body just can’t handle.

  18. Voiderz on February 15, 2022 at 11:27 pm

    medicine just covers up the real problem. cure the root cause not the symptom. medicine is not the cure.

  19. Mary Boyce on February 15, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Are you supposed to only drink celery juice for a while or do you eat also.

  20. Amy Wollet on February 15, 2022 at 11:32 pm

    Better info in the comments than the video!!

  21. John James on February 15, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    All you Americans with all your fads are nucking futs. Still…if it gives you the warm fuzzies after years of Maccas, KFC, and pizza abuse, go for your life. I’ll stick with my healthy balanced diet and moderate exercise.

  22. Nabaty Life on February 15, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    “Whay do we need medecine for if we got celery juice?” Umm Thats the point!.. when people start listening to their bodies and start to heal and reduce mucus and inflammation simply with nutrition. You doctors lose clients! You don’t get their money! Doctors have very little knowledge on nutrition and keep gaslighting us as soon as we start talking about NUTRITION.

  23. Dud on February 15, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    If you are thinking of drink celery water, don’t over think it and just do it. It has mild health benefits maybe even more for others or it might be placebo kicking in but all’s well that ends well right? Also the thought of doing your body a favor can add positive attitude in building healthy diet routines. Just don’t go too crazy and use it as a bad excuse to leave out on healthier options like regular exercises.

    Interesting video. So glad to see Daniel Ratcliff find a new career after Harry Potter.

  26. Startina Jackson on February 15, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    I educated my doctor’s on celery juice, it is a diruretic and helped me release more water than any of those fake water pills.

    It also took away my joint pain. Listen to your body. I will never stop drinking celery juice. When I drink it first thing in the morning, my gut thanks me.

  27. Gabriel Hamsi on February 15, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    I absolute dislike the dr arrogance of saying “see a real doctor”

  28. Ingrid Khajeh on February 15, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    With all due respect Dr., go through 2 years of holistic nutrition school and then have an opinion.
    We all need doctors but ya’ll don’t know everything.
    Most studies are biased depending on who is funding.
    This is just my opinion
    Have a good one

  29. Ron Hansen on February 15, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    This guy is a doctor and therefore not qualified to talk about nutrition subjects. He sounds like a big pharma guy. I bet he pushes the mRNA vac too.

  30. Dolores Velasquez on February 15, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    I been on this celery juice journey, and honestly I feel a lot better and got rid of my Acne and lost 5 ponds in a week. And It’s all natural with no side effects

  31. Aim Mac on February 15, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Celery isn’t a vegetable. And your ego is protesting your indoctrination you spent years and thousands of dollars on. The study your referring to sounds like pfizer industry funded trials. Lol medicine and doctors industry is dying, people are losing faith and medical malpractice is one of the biggest killers of our time. Cheers

  32. spookymon033 on February 15, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    Surely that isn’t his real hair

  33. Christian Williams on February 15, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Scientists are empirical
    Doctors are analogical

  34. victor alba on February 15, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Your own body will tell you

  35. Michelle Markham on February 15, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    I am all about the research and studies… yet, I find a large bias when it comes to accepting food as medicine.I also will note in this video that there is a whole lot of ‘I think’ happening… and supposition on the part of a medical health professional. Let’s have the nay sayers do their own study with the right scientific protocols… investing the $2-3 per dose for a volunteer group that can give their own ‘anecdotal’ report. It would cost less than a photo shoot with a top model and high fashion to fund a bare bones with the important parts to determine some outcomes… but, well. Who wants to head up a celery lobby? Not enough money in the end game for investors. So… those who really want to help the average human with getting healthier… fund ‘real’ and inexpensive solutions and don’t disparage those really trying. I think by now there is actually enough anecdotal evidence to support positive claims. I’ve found that one bunch of organic celery makes about 16oz, give or take, of juice. I feel great after consuming it… meaning : it doesn’t make me feel ill or get indigestion. It curbs my morning hunger enough to wait a bit before I consume my first meal. I suggest people try it themselves… and yes, check with your doctor if you have medicine or other issues that could cause issues.

  36. Ro Z on February 15, 2022 at 11:47 pm

    Celery is the highest pesticided of most any crop……

  37. Slim Paco on February 15, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    Celery juice works. I lost 50 pounds when I replaced my daily Big Mac, Fries, and a large Coke with celery Juice. I think it was a miracle.

  38. Dorjkhand Chumney on February 15, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    I had just a few days celery juice 3-7 oz. My fatique after covid got much better. Nothing else worked. I am going to continue

  39. Georgy Naddie on February 15, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Of course we listen to doctors wanting to support the pharma industry! So I’m doing celery juice.

  40. Summer Lea on February 15, 2022 at 11:52 pm

    Celery juice worked better for me than any medication that any doctor has ever prescribed me. Its literally a life saver. I wonder how much this doctor got paid to talk all this rubbish haha. I would advise everyone to ignore this video and get on the celery juice as it has amazing benefits.

  41. Brad on February 15, 2022 at 11:54 pm

    Doctors know squat about nutrition. They only know how to treat symptoms of diseases which has nothing to do with curing anything.

  42. freedom Uk on February 15, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    This guy a load rubbish sit their tell people

  43. Boxing With Shawn on February 15, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    I don’t think doctors really know much about real food for health, too busy focusing on the new drug being pushed by big pharma! Try it urself, see the results!

  44. James Jamshid Bastani on February 15, 2022 at 11:55 pm

    Aren’t you a doctor? I am asking you!

  45. Peek a while on February 15, 2022 at 11:59 pm

    I regret playing the video but the comment section is more enlightening.

  46. John Wright on February 16, 2022 at 12:00 am

    You are a big pharma doctor.

  47. Laid Back on February 16, 2022 at 12:01 am

    Let your food be your medicine and your medicine your food. ~Hippocrates
    Of course, no doctor will ever tell you that.

  48. Blue Jean on February 16, 2022 at 12:01 am

    ANECDOTAL evidence is weak? Right….As apposed to biased science?

  49. Matthew Klepadlo on February 16, 2022 at 12:02 am

    Basically, it’s good, but don’t overdo it.
    I’m not saying you shouldn’t stop drinking it if you think it’s great for you, and it’s ok if you do try it out, but…
    Ask questions, be open-minded, and look for the truth.
    Don’t fall for a narrative that someone wants to push, that goes for both sides of most arguments.

  50. Buck L on February 16, 2022 at 12:05 am

    You mention juice but then using a blender. Juice or blend?
