Cleanse the Kidney With Water
When it comes to the health and well being of our kidneys there is one fundamental thing we should do above all – drink plenty of water! Ensuring we drink at least 8 glasses of mineral water or purified water each day is the base line insurance for our kidney health. Water helps to keep the concentration of fluids in the kidney at a minimum by providing a constant flushing process for them. Too little water and hydration of the body will result in high concentrations of fluid in the kidney that harbors toxic chemicals that can harm the kidney. High concentration are also an environment in which salts and minerals can join together to create painful kidney stones symptoms.
Juicing for the Kidneys
In addition to drinking enough water every day we can add some juicing recipes to our diet that can also aid in flushing and cleansing the kidneys. Watermelon, parsley, lemon and apples are great for helping to stimulate the kidneys to flush out waste materials and keep itself cleansed. Drinking your juices in the morning on an empty stomach 30 minutes before eating anything else is the best time for detox and cleansing.
Kidney Juicing Recipes
Kidney Juicing Recipe #1 – Watermelon Flush
3 cups of watermelon
Put the 3 cups of watermelon in your blender and you good to go. Add some ice cubes if you want a nice cold summer drink. Because watermelon is so light and about 99% water I think it best blended rather than juiced. That way you get more fiber and a drink that is still easily digested.
Kidney Juicing Recipe #2 – Apple and Lemon
1/2 a lemon
Juice the apples with their skins on to increase the amount of antioxidants in the juice. Only use the flesh of the lemon. Lemon juice is great for helping to break down kidney stones and gall stones.
Kidney Juicing Recipe #3 – Parsley Power
2 handfuls of parsley
The apples in this recipe help to sweeten the bitter (yet fragrant) taste of parsley juice. Parsley is also excellent for helping to flush mercury out of our bodies.
