    I'm thinking I might juice celery and drink it before a meal to help POTS symptoms. I was reading it can also help with dysbiosis because it increases stomach HCl. Have you tried it, and what were your results?

    Is there evidence or a study that shows celery juice helps POTS?

    @Hip already answered the relevant question. I just want to add that there are certain prescription drugs that may help with POTS. In case of POTS with high blood pressure, a medication such as metoprolol may do the trick while for those with normal or low-normal blood pressure, ivabradine is very promising.

    But that would be contraproductive, since celery is so diuretic.

    Thanks all, I was mainly just looking for anecdotal experiences (there aren't any studies on celery & POTS), I should have put that in my original post. I thought it might help increase electrolyte/mineral status (being high in sodium) but not sure how strong the diuretic effect is.
