Kidney cleansing and detoxification

Updated on March 21, 2011

Kidneys have a very important function in our body. They receive the blood, process it and remove the waste from it and then return the filtered blood to the body while directing the waste substances in the urine. This filtering system helps the waste material and water to leave the blood and enter your urinary system. When this system is not functioning properly various conditions develop and the most common being kidney stones and renal failure.
Kidneys help keeping a constant volume of water in your body and the concentration of various ions. They help you to regulate your blood pressure and they stimulate the production of red blood cells.

Kidney cleansing is a procedure that will help your kidneys' functioning. The procedure includes drinking a huge amount of water or other liquids (the so called „juice fast“) and eating a special diet.

Your detoxification diet should include various healing foods like onions, garlic, green tea, lemon, aloha vera, stevia, sea weed, etc.. Furthermore, this diet includes the intake of healing fats (olive oil, coconut oil, fish oil, flaxseed oil), vegetable juices and unrefined sea salt. 
In the summer season you can help your kidneys cleanse by eating large amounts of watermelon.

Another way to effectively detoxify your kidneys is the consumption of bearberry (uva ursi) and juniper herbs in the form of supplements. Bearberry is excellent for the genital and urinary organs, especially for the  infections of the urinary tract, urethritis, cystitis, bloody urine and candida infections and vulvitis.

Drinking more water and eating healthier will in most help your kidney's detoxification. But sometimes other methods can be used like colon cleanse that is very beneficiary to your kidneys as well.
