I've been following the discussions on celery juice here, and also purchased and read most of the book. Since I have a variety of the other (non-ES) conditions that this is supposed to be good for, I plan on giving this a try.
I've already drank about 5 glasses of celery juice in the past week or two. Seems like about 8 - 12 ounces is tolerable to start with. I noticed some loose bowels movements and "something going on" in my abdomen, but nothing too terrible. I also put some in a nasal sprayer (straight) and sprayed it into my nostrils. I didn't have lots of mucous coming out, but there was a little, and my nasal passages seem clearer afterwards.
Hey Marc, I'm glad you're doing that, and I hope it will help your EHS.
I suppose you don't have extreme EHS now? How would you rate your EHS, from zero to extreme (100)?
My loose bowel movements were never terrible with celery either.
They happen either immediately, or hours later - you may notice some strange bowel movements in strange times of the day, without much 'logic', not related to what you ate...
This could be celery.
Once the bowel movements get corrected (no more loose stools), if you take the 2 or 3 glasses, you'll slowly notice the juice going to your brain. At least, I do.
Once you still get loose stools, you barely notice anything in the brain.
But as I said, you got to take 2-3 glasses at once to feel that. Always in empty stomach.
I feel like my brain is being watered by some natural fertilizer: it's really like a plant that is thirsty, and suddenly, it gets water and straighten its branches again...
I feel something waking my brain up, quite a nice feeling.
I suppose that are electrolytes and neurotransmitters being fed?!?
I still continue doing the nasal drops, and not much mucus come out too, but the days I stop doing that, my old problematic spot on the left cheekbone feels like asking for the drops.
I suffered too many years from bone chronic infection to get rid of that only after a couple of days... I'll continue until I feel I get no more benefits from it.
You may have some infections coming out from all over, if you continue on celery, skin rash, mouth infections (herpes), sore lips, painful joints, painful nerves on and off, spine will sometimes feel something, neck, etc... At least, I did (and still feel that).
My long term energy (the one that keeps the load in my battery until the end of the day) is climbing, if I'm not detoxing too much.
The moment my body decides to dump toxins in greater amounts, I get less energy of course, but if I rest enough, I get better in 1 or 2 days.
Two supplements that I feel I need with celery are ionic zinc and magnesium.
These are the 2 supplements I keep taking, so that all that detox's got some support.
B12 too, if I feel a lot going on with my nerves.

Certainly my ES is not nearly as bad as it was 19 years ago. And not really a daily issue anymore, due to various supplements, avoidance strategies, and EMF protection devices. So without all of that, it may still be really bad.
So I'm still looking for something that's more of a "cure", whereas I don't have to continually try so hard to maintain balance.
But in the book, celery juice is touted for all kinds of problems, and I probably have about 10 of the problems listed, so really I'd be happy if this would improve ANY of those.
The first book I bought was the Medical Medium, about diseases. I have so many problems he described, that my difficulty was to define which protocol to follow...
I have still many issues described in the celery book too, I suppose most people have, as the causes are only toxins + pathogens, and all chronic diseases will have that as cause...
I hope celery will help you. It's at least, an easy thing to do (compared to all procedures people do).
You gotta write down to see how you improve or not. Once improvement comes, we easily forget how bad we were. I write once a month and keep track to see if I'm getting better or worse.
Please keep us updated.
AS for the nose drops, i realized that depending on the head positions, the liquid goes somewhere else (like tilted head, and applying like a neti pot will send it deep in the upper sinuses, I find, specially if you sniff the thing in the end). It's even painful - which means, it's killing something there.
If it is painful like salty water, it means it reached ammonia or pathogens - that is what Anthony describes in the celery book.
The parts that are used to get celery, feels like nothing, no pain, no burning sensation.
First day on nose drops, my eyes got all red, meaning, it was doing something there!
More people in the Anthony forum are doing the nose drops - I sort of convinced some to do it. Let's see what comes out from there! I'll let you know.
please let us know about your thoughts on celery, as you keep increasing the dosage. Specially concerning EHS or other health problems you say you have.
