CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS

CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS
 CLEAN YOUR KIDNEYS

Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poisons and many other unwanted substances that enter our body. With time, the salt accumulates and excess minerals. Plaque also builds, clogging the filtering ability.

As the kidneys are pouches of blood vessels that are part of the filtering system. Like any filter, the kidneys can benefit greatly from a good cleaning.  Below is a recipe that can help clean that filtration system. – For the cleaning the blood vessels, check out the link in the reposters note at the end of this post.

It is very easy. First take a bunch of parsley or Cilantro ( Coriander Leaves ) and wash it clean. Cut it into small pieces and put it in a pot, add clean water and boil for ten minutes. Let it cool down, then filter it and pour into a clean bottle. Store it inside refrigerator to keep it cool.

Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination. As the kidneys are cleansed,  you will be able to notice the difference and leave you feeling cleaner, more refreshed and rejuvenated!

Parsley and cilantro (coriander) are known as the best natural cleaning treatment for kidneys. Both have similar impact but Parsley is preferred choice. Difference between Parsley and Cilantro. Parsley doesn’t have the smell whereas Cilantro (Dhaniya Leaves) do. Parsley is used in Salads. Both leaves look similar to each other but by close observation, you can notice both are different.
Parsley is an amazingly nutrient packed green and is a stand alone health powerhouse that has not received the acknowledgment it deserves as a dietary dynamo.

Our kidneys are such an important organ, keeping them functioning well is crucial to good overall health.  Our kidneys  are meant to last us a lifetime, with a little care, you can make this happen.

Reduce the Stress on Your Kidneys

Give your kidneys a bit of a break by using the tips below:

  • Drink lots of water to flush out wastes. Drinking water also helps lower the chances of kidney stones and infections.
  • Keep your blood pressure in the target range. Weight control, exercise, and drugs can control blood pressure—and prevent or slow the risk of kidney failure. Also, blood pressure drugs in the ACE-inhibitor and ARB class help slow down a loss of protein in the urine and protect the kidneys. Blood pressure puts a lot of stress on your kidneys. If you have high blood pressure and any other kidney problem, treating your blood pressure will help protect your kidneys.
  • If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar in the target range. Weight control, exercise, medication, and tight control of blood sugar can prevent or slow the risk of kidney failure.
  • Have blockages (e.g., narrowed arteries) treated. Sometimes blockages can be opened to help save function in a blocked kidney. If you think you have a blockage, ask your doctor what can be done about it.
  • Take steps to prevent kidney stones if you are prone to them.
  • Take steps to prevent infections if you are prone to them.
  • Check with your doctor to see if there is a special diet you should be on, such as low protein, low salt (sodium), and low phosphorus.
***REPOSTERS NOTE
Thank You too Green Yatra  and Kidney Trust for some of the information in this post.
For those of you who already are adding to your day with green smoothies, I would use this juice as the base to that smoothie. That would be a great way to provide your kidneys and your overall health a long term benefit. Our kidneys are crucial and keeping them healthy allows the rest of our body to function better.
If green smoothies or this juice are not appealing, another option would be one I have suggested before in  previous posts. This supplement cleans all of your organs and has been so effective, people on dialysis are able to reduce the amount of dialysis they need and some have even been able to repair their kidneys so that dialysis is no longer needed. One of the main benefits is :

Basic Detox Guide & How to Tell if Your Body Needs a Natural Detox

Basic Detox Guide: How to Tell if Your Body Needs a Natural Detox

Thanks to Realfarmacy.com for this article.

Your body is naturally equipped with a self-cleaning process. But too much sugar, caffeine, processed foods, stress, and too little exercise can slow the body’s natural detox function to a slow pace. And then your body can’t clean itself when it is put up against the increasing number of harmful and toxic substances in the environment. Toxins come in many forms: pesticides in produce, formaldehyde in carpets and cosmetics, PCBs from plastic containers, dioxins from bleached paper products, and more.

Your body will process and eliminate some of the hordes of chemicals that enter, but overflow gets stored in the liver, lungs, kidneys, fat cells, intestines, blood stream, and skin—which can result in chronic illnesses down the road. When you undergo a detox, you get these toxins out of your system.

How do you know if you need a detox?

You know you’re suffering from toxic overload if you are experiencing fatigue, memory decline, difficulty focusing, allergies and infections, irritability, anxiety and depression, difficulty with weight gain and weight loss, muscle and joint pain or weakness, skin rashes and outbreaks, recurrent yeast and fungal infections, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal bloating, and indigestion.

Most people report vast improvement in their symptoms after a detox. At first, you may feel a little fuzzy because of the toxins being released. However, when you stick with it, you will begin to feel more alert, energized, and full of vitality.

At-Home Detox

Start small! Begin with a one-day program and gradually increase to one week or more. Here are 5 steps to a daily detox that will gently cleanse your body:

1. Start the Detox Day Right
• First thing in the morning, drink one lemon squeezed in 12 ounces of warm filtered water. Lemon activates your liver to release toxins and helps to cleanse and move the roughage that stays behind in your intestines.

• Take acidophilus or a probiotic supplement. Acidophilus is one of the many “good” bacteria and yeasts known as the probiotics. Probiotics balance our intestinal functions, helping to break down food and control the “bad” bacteria that is also in your system—all of which optimizes the detoxification process. Always take probiotics on an empty stomach.

2. Your Detox Meals
These meals are designed to jump-start your body into becoming healthier.
• Breakfast: Eat oat bran cereal, brown rice, or any other whole grain cereal as long as it is unbleached and does not contain any added sugar or chemicals.

• Lunch or Dinner: Eat any combination of beans, brown rice, oat bran, vegetables, and organic chicken, or turkey. When you eat, notice how your food affects you. You should feel satisfied and energized. If you feel tired and sluggish, try eating smaller meals so that you don’t overwhelm your digestion and interfere with the detoxification process.

3. Eat Green to Spring into Health
The green pigment in plants, chlorophyll, is structurally similar to the hemoglobin in the human body—the iron-containing element in blood. It increases red blood cell production and improves oxygenation, detoxification, and circulation. Be sure to eat several servings of fresh green vegetables every day during your detox. Try this super-cleansing broth and juice as a quick way to up your veggie intake.

Detox Broth: Add as many of these ingredients as you can into a large pot of filtered water: collards, Swiss chard, kale, mustard greens, cabbage, dandelion, Brussels sprouts, daikon radish, watercress, seaweed, shitake mushrooms, cilantro, garlic, leeks, fresh fennel, anise, fresh ginger, and turmeric. Boil until all ingredients are soft. You can make in a large batch and refrigerate for up to three days.

Detox Juice: Juice the following together: Aloe vera juice (which can be found in most health food stores), apples, asparagus, beets (including greens), cabbage, carrot and carrot greens, celery, cucumbers, and parsley. You can also purchase vegetable juice from the store, but be sure that it has no added salt or chemicals.

4. Supplement Your Detox
• Take a daily supplement of 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil, walnut oil, or deep-sea fish oil.

• Green Tea is a strong antioxidant, and a great beverage choice for your detox. Be sure to drink decaffeinated green tea.

• Dandelion and Milk Thistle both protect and restore the liver. According to Chinese medicine, the liver is most active in the detoxification process during spring.

• Ginger is a bowel and kidney cleanser. Make yourself tea from fresh ginger root during your detox.

A popular herbal formula among my patients is Internal Cleanse, a special combination of natural herbs to detoxify, calm nerves, clear the mind, promote emotional balance, and ease digestion. For more information, click here.

5. Take an Invigorating Herbal Soak
Soak for 20 minutes in a revitalizing herbal bath. Help draw out toxins by infusing your bath water with eucalyptus, wintergreen, peppermint, fennel, cinnamon, and epsom salts.

Spring may be the best time to cleanse your body, but you don’t have to wait until spring to start. Detoxification and cleansing is a healthy maintenance program for all seasons.

**Reposter’s Note

Make sure to get your Epsom Salts from a source that does not use aluminum to stop the salt from clumping. Magnesium Salts are also excellent for detox and revitalization.

1/4 tsp of coconut oil added to the last 5 minutes of your soak is very beneficial to your skin and hair. Coconut oil taken orally also has many beneficial effects on almost every body system.

I have an Oxygen Spa that I will share information with you on later this fall that provides an excellent detox. It is very relaxing and enjoyable and overall detox is just one of the many benefits it provides the body, mind and spirit.

My personal thoughts on detoxification are that it should be a continuously ongoing. Toxins are accumulated on an ongoing basis so ongoing detox is just plain smart preventative maintenance.

At the very least – start your day with fresh lemon in hot water.

I like to grate fresh Ginger, let it steep while I juice a lemon, I then add the lemon to the steeped ginger tea and sweeten with a bit of honey or real maple syrup.  No matter the season,  the fresh Lemon – Ginger combo really adds zest to your morning. It also has an excellent detoxifying effect.

If you have an intestinal system that is working well, leave well enough alone. I suffered from severe IBS before it had a name. Now my intestinal system works really well. The friendly flora are in the correct balance.  I now will only add a Pro-biotic when that balance is disturbed and would not add it as part of my detox program.

Our bodies are an amazing compilation of complex systems that work synergistically. The gut is one of those complex systems.
