~ Natural Kidney Cleanse ~
The kidneys are major organs of detoxification. They filter the blood to remove waste products, which are then mixed with water to produce about two quarts of urine a day. We need to drink at least 8 glasses of filtered water daily to efficiently flush waste products through the kidneys so they can be eliminated in the urine.
Without sufficient water intake, these solutes can become sludge in the tiny tubules. This can lead to kidney dysfunction and irritation, such as kidney infections, kidney stones, or other kidney damage.
Other kidney functions are involved with:
Drinking 8 to 10 glasses of purified water during a detoxification program is essential for diluting and flushing toxins that are being released. Also - avoid caffeine, sodas, and milk products.
Reduce or eliminate animal protein, especially red meat, from your diet. The by-products of protein metabolism, such as urea and ammonia, are toxic and must be eliminated through the kidneys. A high protein diet puts unnecessary stress on kidneys that are already burdened with the additional toxic waste from the detoxification process.
Eat plenty of raw foods during kidney detoxification. Parsley is one food that supports kidney health. Raw and minimally processed foods have more nutrients and are easier to digest.
Raw foods contain active enzymes that help in their digestion, rather than needing the body to manufacture extra digestive enzymes for breaking down the food. Digestion requires a tremendous amount of energy and that energy could be better used in supporting the kidney detox.
A kidney stone diet, for a person prone to forming oxalate kidney stones, should limit oxalate-containing foods such as spinach, rhubarb, leafy vegetables, coffee, chocolate, and tomatoes.
OK, now that you're drinking plenty of purified water and have an idea about the foods to eat or avoid... it's time to start the kidney cleanse.
The ideal time to do a kidney cleansing program is shortly after doing the colon-parasite cleanse and just before the liver detoxification program. When a load of toxins is flushed from the liver during the liver-gallbladder cleanse, most of them will be eliminated through the kidneys and intestines. It's important to have good kidney detox function at this time to avoid stressing the kidneys.
The organic kidney herbs in GHC Kidney Cleanse Kit will rejuvenate the urinary tract's cleansing function and flush out sludge. This formulation is a natural kidney, bladder, urinary tract detoxification program.
If you're predisposed to the formation of kidney stones, you can also take Stone Free from Planetary Herbals. These same herbs will also soften gallstones and allow for easy passage. Using this formula shortly before doing the liver detox and gallbladder flush will greatly reduce the likelihood of discomfort when passing the gallstones.
The next step in the holistic detoxification process will be the liver-gallbladder cleanse. Since you haven't done that yet, you may still be experiencing some bloating or indigestion. If so, you may want to ease the body's workload and use some digestive enzymes at this time.
What causes kidney stones? The main cause of kidney stone formation is dehydration. Most people simply don't drink enough water to dilute and flush waste products through the kidneys. This will concentrate minerals and other substances to form crystals, which in turn can clump together to become stones.
Drinking sodas that contain phosphoric acid also increases the risk of stone formation.
