Could celery juice really be the key to overcoming chronic illness and restoring optimum wellness? The proof, says Anthony Williams, is in the results.

More than 40 years before he started the global celery juice movement, Anthony Williams—or, as readers of his bestselling books know him, The Medical Medium—was serving up 16 oz. glassfuls of what millions now deem a divinely inspired herbal elixir in his efforts to bring healing to loved ones, friends, and community members. “I remember the first time I offered it in 1975 for a family member who had a back injury that wouldn’t get better—and she didn’t believe in celery juice, didn’t believe in anything,” he says. “I put the celery in one of those old, beat-up-blenders, strained the juice, and within days her back was recovering for the first time.”

Williams has made believers out of countless others since his 2015 book, The Medical Medium, introduced the chronically ill and other health seekers to the otherworldly wellness wisdom that Williams, since age 4, says he has shared from a compassionate entity he calls Spirit. “I was in nursing homes at age 18, 19, sitting by bedsides offering Medical Medium information— which is Spirit’s advanced information given to me—giving people B 12 back in the late 1980s so they could get out of bed. For families and doctors who I was working with, I’ve been in the trenches helping people out my whole life. I’ve dedicated my life to helping the chronically ill, providing them answers that they can’t get anywhere else because science and research hasn’t been up to par in mystery chronic illness—and making sure people have a chance to heal.”

Not that he hasn’t had a slew of vocal critics dismiss his medical findings—also outlined in his books on the thyroid and liver—as unscientific. But he believes that science and research will catch up eventually. “People still don’t know why the thyroid becomes inflamed or you get thyroiditis,” he says. “I am the first person to (say) that the Epstein-Barr virus gets into the thyroid. And now they’re starting to talk about it years later.” Williams also gives Spirit credit for revealing—35 years ago—lemon water’s now widely regarded role in flushing and cleansing the liver. “There’s no science behind it. There’s no peer review studies. Yet the same naysayer who will say in an article, ‘Oh, that Anthony Williams; there’s no peer review study on celery juice,’ will actually say, ‘Put lemon in water to help the liver.’
