Is the Medical Medium right about Celery Juice? In the end, it may not matter

One of the biggest health fads right now is a morning drink of celery juice. Proponents state that stand-alone celery juice confers a myriad of health benefits and drinking it every morning has some mysterious cleansing powers different from that of any other green juice or vegetable.

And how do they know this?

The Medical Medium told them.

I have no problem with celery juice. Nor with the Medical Medium personally. Or even with the notion that he might sometimes be right—celery juice is a fine juice and very easy on the digestive system. He is often, however, probably wrong (see below).

But even that isn’t my problem. Most people—including experts– are sometimes right and sometimes wrong.

The issue I have is a more general one. I have a problem with medical diagnoses by divine revelation.

Believe me, I understand the frustration with conventional medicine and the desire for alternative solutions. I’ve been in the trenches fighting the pharmaceutical-medical-industrial complex for 28 years. I don’t blame anyone looking for answers they haven’t been able to get elsewhere.

And I’m quite willing to accept that there are people who are able to “hear” or envision messages of wisdom that others can’t. I was a big fan of Abraham, the collective voice of spirits that spoke to Esther Hicks and delivered inspiring and wonderful messages of compassion, acceptance, and kindness.

But there’s a whole universe of medicine, naturopathy and nutrition that exists between conventional doctors and a psychic.

Which is exactly what the Medical Medium is—a psychic. One who specializes, for sure, but still a psychic.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Here’s the problem: the Medical Medium isn’t just telling people to drink some green juice. He’s giving medical diagnoses. Which only he can see and the solution to which only he has. And any time medical truths are revealed to Just One Person, it’s a recipe for disaster.

Let me explain.

I’m one of the biggest critics of the way we “use” science for marketing purposes and the way the drug companies have virtually co-opted research and turned it into a marketing tool. I also do not believe every piece of valuable information we get about health (or life, for that matter) needs to be verified by a double-blind placebo controlled clinical study. The entire NYC fire department doesn’t have a single double-blind study showing that water puts out fire.

But science is like democracy—it’s a deeply flawed enterprise, yet it’s better than all the alternatives.

And when we ignore science—flawed as it is—we’re ignoring the entire collective knowledge base of medicine, nutrition and health. And we’re asking for trouble.

Some of the Medical Medium’s nutrition advice is demonstrably, provably false. For example: the notion that genes have no influence on disease. (Tell that to anyone who has sickle cell anemia or cystic fibrosis, both diseases that are monogenetic.) And that’s just one example.

So there’s the accuracy problem.

And then there’s the potential for demagoguery.

What if another medium gets divine revelation and her divine revelation is different from the Medical Medium’s? Who’s right? How would you check? You usually don’t get second opinions from other psychics.

Nonetheless, I’m aware that many people will answer my critique by saying “But he’s helped so many people!” or “He has a gift!” or “He’s right so many times!”

I get it. So I’d like to pose a hypothetical situation.

Suppose there were a guy known as the Airplane Medium.

The Airplane Medium never went to pilot school and wouldn’t know a Delta Airbus 350 from a minivan. He gets his knowledge from the same spirit who speaks to the Medical Medium. And he feels, with absolute certainty, that sprit showed him how to fly a plane safely.

So here’s my question:

Would you get on a plane with the Airplane Medium at the controls?

I’m just asking.

And if your answer is no—then let me ask you this:

What’s the difference?

  1. your comparison is kinda bonkers. Does this Airplane Medium fly around + land + take off + land again and then invite you on a ride? The information given by Anthony + Spirit and the fact he notes in ALL books and on his website he is not a DR and to listen to your DRS and take meds if the drs are telling you or your life depends on it – he is simply sharing information on a mass level, and it happens to be healing millions.
    So I guess if the Airplane Medium is giving the same information + elaborating on it and shows results of his info via doing it then sure, he clearly has it down and knows what hes doing.
    Is the Airplane medium the guy in the Fyre Fest documentary? If so, yeah, I would fly with him, he seemed to take flight + land + have a sense of right and wrong, and is still flyin’ all over, and never took classes and taught himself. Seems to be legit.

    Sure he might SEE it with people when he is out and about (hence limiting how much he is in public since it is so overwhelming) however, he works with thousands of people, and has helped heal MILLIONS of people, with so much MORE than just Celery Juice.

    Have you read his books?
    Have you listened to his podcasts?

    Have you talked with some of the people who have gotten their entire lives back by following the protocols he is sharing with us via Spirit? It is hard to deny it all when hundreds of thousands of people are getting their lives back after western medicine drs + naturopaths + counselors + family members have all told people it is in their heads or not real or they are just depressed or cant connect the many symptoms to ONE issue, yet they follow MM protocols and within weeks are seeing a difference and within months literally regaining their LIVES.

  2. Celery Juice cured my GERD. Not one doctor, including Dr. Fuhrman could do that. Celery juice is cheaper than pills. Naysayers like yourself should stay out of the criticism business. The only advice you have is Fools.
