For years, Kim Kardashian has struggled with an ailment that’s especially difficult to endure for someone in the public eye: psoriasis. Since her diagnosis in 2011, the reality star has endeavored to take any means necessary to find help--and she reaches a new one on this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, when she consults a medical medium about her condition.
According to People, a clip from the upcoming episode shows Kardashian meeting with a medium named Anthony William. Like Kardashian, he maintains a healthy social media presence, boasting nearly two million Instagram followers. “I am all about mediums, I’m so obsessed,” Kim says in the teaser. “Anyone that knows me knows I love connecting to the spirit world. So yeah, if he can tell me anything about my psoriasis and how to fix it, I’m down to see what happens.”
Subsequently, William enters and begins to channel spirits in his investigation of Kardashian’s body. He quickly concludes that, “With you, it’s definitely the liver. You have really high deposits of copper… That’s a dermatoxin, so that’s a poison that’s floating to the skin.” Subsequently, he advises Kardashian to drink celery juice to neutralize the copper; she responds with skepticism, but says she will try.
Perhaps not coincidentally, William’s website describes him as the “originator” of the “Global Celery Juice Movement,” according to People. He advocates consuming 16 ounces of celery juice each morning in order to treat a wide variety of medical conditions.
Previously, Kardashian has been open about her struggles with psoriasis, documenting her search for a cure on KUWTK and sharing comparatively candid images of the red, scaly skin produced by it.
As for us, we’re not exactly sure that William’s celery juice diet will be the answer that Kardashian is looking for, but we certainly support her endeavor to make the condition easier--we certainly wouldn’t wish psoriasis on anyone, and we appreciate her openness about the issue.
