    According to the video: Imaginary patient: Doctor can I eat healthy and organic food? And drink fresh healthy juice? Doctor: do not eat this, wait for sympthoms until first cancer lung emerges and than come to me I will prescribe you protocols. Imaginary patient: thank you doctor I will.
    After five years Imaginary patient comes to doctor: Doctor please help I have a cancer. Doctor: Nothing I can do. I can give you only something on your pain. Next. Imaginary patient: thank you doctor you saved my life. No

    This Dr sounds angry.



  3. Mary Boyce on December 28, 2021 at 7:46 pm

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

    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.

    Well say what you want sir but I’ve lost 85 pounds off this sooo everybody’s body is different

    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"..



  7. Bal ance on December 28, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    No no I will not speak to my doctor. No



  8. LifeisA Dream on December 28, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    Dr. Mike is a vaccine pushing shill. I had awful GERD and nothing cured it except Medical Medium celery juice! Try it yourself instead of listening to pharma owned liars like Dr. Mike!



  9. CHENGETAI MACHAKA on December 28, 2021 at 7:54 pm

    Celery = veggie = good. Stop the cap doc. I’ll take healthy food over man made meds any day.



  10. Raw Reiki on December 28, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    "What do we need medicine for if we got celery juice?"
    My point exactly! Nature is enough in the vast majority of cases for restoration and healing. Medicine is just emergency treatment for special occasions or people who won’t take care of themselves till it’s too late. You’ve got your place in the industry, it just happens to be minor for awoke people. Calm down.



  11. Brad on December 28, 2021 at 7:56 pm

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



  12. BigAl444 on December 28, 2021 at 7:57 pm

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



  13. Ingrid Khajeh on December 28, 2021 at 8:01 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



  14. norman zabala on December 28, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    Where available celery juice



  15. Gerald Landis on December 28, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    interesting 🍷



  16. Jeff Adams on December 28, 2021 at 8:01 pm

    This guys a joke. “Why would we need medicine”. Government would hate that huh. Drink your juice!



  17. Nabaty Life on December 28, 2021 at 8:03 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.



  18. Roland Gugler on December 28, 2021 at 8:03 pm

    What a jerk this Dr. blabla is 🤮🤮🤮



  19. TheBondGirl on December 28, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    You’re not a doctor. You’re a legal DRUG DEALER. Drugs don’t heal the body, ok? Working for big pharma is why you make so much money. Because you just manage symptoms and not heal your patients. Functional medicine is REAL MEDICINE.



  20. John Wright on December 28, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    You are a big pharma doctor.



  21. Michelle Gaeb on December 28, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    Celery juice can not be patented so the industry must try to SQUASH it!



  22. Ro Z on December 28, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    Celery is the highest pesticided of most any crop……



  23. Dorjkhand Chumney on December 28, 2021 at 8:08 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



  24. Shaban dipandip on December 28, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Doctor don’t want you be healthy .. because they won’t make money..



  25. ricban1950 on December 28, 2021 at 8:11 pm

    Why not simply eat the celery?



  26. John James on December 28, 2021 at 8:12 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.



  27. Austin Zizzi on December 28, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    You didn’t even do any research on the protocol before you made this video you’re just spouting off a completely misinformed opinion



  28. Brent B on December 28, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    I’ve never tried celery juice, but a lot these debunking arguments are really short-sighted and arrogant. If celery juice does things to improve gut health, then it can have a dramatic effect on energy levels, the immune system, and hormones which can cause people to lose weight, feel great and be happy. Also, personally I know my migraines are caused by a deficiency in electrolytes which celery is full of, so I suspect that it is a cure for migraines for many people.



  29. Austin Zizzi on December 28, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    This won’t age well



  30. Laid Back on December 28, 2021 at 8:14 pm

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



  31. john dumas on December 28, 2021 at 8:15 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.



  32. Ron Scharneck on December 28, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Doctors would generally prefer pharma pills…they actually don’t know too much about a healthy lifestyle… doctors today never explain how to eat healthy to build up your immune system…hope you are not on the pharma pay roll…



  33. Matthew Klepadlo on December 28, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    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.



  34. Dolores Velasquez on December 28, 2021 at 8:16 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



  35. Margarita Sciapin on December 28, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    This is useless, test it and then make a video. We cured eczema with celery juice



  36. Dud on December 28, 2021 at 8:18 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.



  37. Diana In La La World on December 28, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Yes, true.. I am a believer doctors do awesome jobs with broken bones and those type of issues. but for general health, every day health and all human necessities. Nature is the answer, food is the answer, its the real medicine. Sorry you are wrong mr little doctor.



  38. TF Replays on December 28, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    This comment section should be nuked… So many anti-science idiots. Celery is just a vegetable people, it’s not magic. If you don’t have actual science to prove it’s some miracle cure, I don’t want to hear your unsourced anecdotes.



  39. ALi on December 28, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    Eh don’t trust him



  40. Startina Jackson on December 28, 2021 at 8:21 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.



  41. Starry Skies on December 28, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    This guy sux🤔 also Yay Celery !!



  42. J Med on December 28, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    follow the money.. it all traces back to *big celery*.
    you’re a brave man to speak out against them



  43. Leina M on December 28, 2021 at 8:29 pm

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



  44. Michelle Markham on December 28, 2021 at 8:30 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.



  45. John McCullough on December 28, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Ever since I started taking celery juice it helped me save 15% on my car insurance



  46. Shahraiz Qadeerz on December 28, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Ofcourse doctors will not support this, they never support healthy diet, they do support medications.



  47. daniela martinez on December 28, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    The truth is; these “doctors” will never actually agree with natural benefits or anything other than medications because they will be out of business lol but on a real note; we are better off exploring other natural options than these doctors who charge you an arm and a leg and nothing ever gets better. I myself have gotten better and have avoided medication just by doing natural remedies because that’s what these fruits/veggies are for! To heal and sustain us.



  48. Babs on December 28, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Does it cure actors portraying medical professionals?



  49. F-P-E-J French-Portugues-English List on December 28, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    My conclusion after watching this video, is this doctor wants to sell us pills and drugs instead. Period
