Hey there guys, welcome back to the mini-series on celery juice. So far we’ve discussed recipes and claimed benefits like its apparent acne stopping power. Next up, is Eczema and Psoriasis; can drinking celery juice help stop these life-changing skin conditions?
What my internet research has shown about celery juice
Celery juice for psoriasis
The top result on google for this subject takes you to medicalmedium.com which I must admit was very difficult to understand. But in summary, Anthony William believes that eczema and psoriasis originate in your liver due to a build-up of copper and mercury. Interestingly, celery supposedly breaks down these heavy metals thus reducing symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. Anthony states that once you drink celery juice on an empty stomach for over two weeks you should see huge results even in this short amount of time.
Now you can not talk about psoriasis without talking about Kim Kardashian celery juice journey. It was just over a year ago when Kim shocked her fans by showing us how bad her psoriasis was. Many people thought it was a good thing that she was being so open and honest about her physical ‘defects.’ But when she started her diet of drinking celery juice for psoriasis it eradicated all of her psoriasis within weeks. This started the celery juice and psoriasis craze on social media and at the moment there are nearly 24,000 #celeryjuicechallenge posts on Instagram!
Celery juice eczema
On the medical medium site, Anthony talks much of the same about eczema as he does psoriasis but in fact, the 2 skin conditions are very different. Talking about most of the posts online about celery juice for eczema, it is difficult to tell if the websites are just trying to sell their juices and products to you. People who have tried pure celery juice have had mixed results. This is evident when you read about the comments under any blog.
I then scrolled through google a bit further and found this article. It is one of the only overwhelmingly positive articles I’ve read for celery juice and eczema. It’s a great story, but in the before photos, the lady has no make-up on, and in the after photos, she has a full face of make-up. So, is celery juice good for eczema? As you can tell I’m on the fence about alleviating eczema by drinking celery juice.
What medical experts have to say on celery juice
Celery juice and psoriasis
While researching this topic I found psoriasis.com which is a website dedicated to finding a cure and aliments for this skin condition I discovered that they completely disagree with the celery juice psoriasis cure theory. They just say that all fruit and vegetables would improve your diet and therefore improve the condition of your skin naturally.
They also state that if you undertake one of these juice challenges you should consult your doctor before. If you’re one for conspiracies could they could be protecting an interest in drugs that are prescribed for eczema?
Celery juice for eczema
Now you might be noticing a theme here…. Yes, you guessed it, another heavy hitter disagrees with Williams. The nationaleczema.org website discredits Anthony William’s celery juice for skin theory saying that he has left out a key part of the reason as to why eczema is hard to treat with drugs and creams. And that is simply genetics. But they do state that drinking celery juice isn’t a bad thing to do generally because of its vitamin-rich makeup.
So, is celery juice good for your skin? I know that I’ve only been focusing on eczema and psoriasis in this post, it goes without saying that you can achieve great benefits of celery juice on the skin because celery is high in calcium, potassium, protein, beta carotene and vitamins A, B6, C and K.
So, it shouldn’t do you any harm drinking celery juice for skin benefits, just don’t expect it to be a miracle cure, which is like anything I guess. For example, don’t except to juice celery every morning but eat unhealthy for the rest of the day and reduce all your symptons. A well-balanced diet is the most important thing you can concentrate on when fighting any ailment. Finally, everyone is different, so different things work for different people.
Thanks for reading. Until next time folks
