4 Ways to Do a Natural Kidney Cleanse at Home


With processed food becoming a major part
of what we eat, the amount of toxins we encounter each day is insane. This makes our kidneys extra-important organs
to make sure these toxins don’t stay in our body for too long. These 2 small organs are located on either
side of your spine. They produce both, a non-hormonal product,
that is, Urine, as well as hormones like, Calcitonin. So, from getting rid of excessive body waste,
balancing electrolytes and body fluid levels to giving out hormones, kidneys play a variety
of roles. With that being said, taking care of them
should be a high priority. To help you get healthy, happy kidneys, Bestie
brings you 4 ways to cleanse them by all-natural means. So, it’s time to discover the power of healthy
habits giving you long term results! Let’s dive right into it. Number 1: Hydration You must have heard this fact since you were
young that your body is made up of almost 60 percent water. Yeah, that’s like a Human Watermelon! That’s a weird thought…eww. Well, there is a reason you were taught to
remember this. Water is essential for body functioning. As per the Institute of Medicine, the recommended
intake of water is about 3.7 liters for men and 2.7 liters for women. From making up a major part of all your body
fluids to act as a solvent for metabolic reactions, you owe your life to this molecule. I mean, literally. Water is so important to life that even the
very first life form was completely aquatic. To pump out the daily waste you produce in
the form of Urea, the kidneys need water. Apart from urea, kidneys pump out other unwanted
by-products through urine as well. If you don’t drink enough water, the kidneys
will try to retain water by decreasing urine output. This can result in concentrated urine and
in the long run, kidney stones. So if a clean body and healthy life are what
you seek, make water your bestie! Number 2: A Healthy Food Basket I mean, if junk food is all you survive upon,
it’s high time you think about your poor kidneys. If you want them to stay strong for a long
time, healthy food choices are your only option. Junk food can lead to increased phosphorus
levels, high blood sugar and increase the production of stomach acid in your body. This can cause severe damage to the kidneys,
or if you don’t correct your bad habits, then acidosis might be in your future. It takes a long time before we start encountering
really severe effects of ignoring our health. It always starts slow. In the case of kidneys, we end up ignoring
the signs of damage until the kidneys are screaming for help. So, if you wanna help them out watch our video
on “12 Signs That Your Kidney Need Help” linked below. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sob2CVCjFao
) So what are the best food picks to improve
your kidney’s health? Grapes Grapes, like other berries and peanuts, are
rich in Resveratrol. As per studies, this plant compound can lower
kidney inflammation in case of polycystic kidney disease. So next time when you are looking for a quick
snack, opt for a handful of grapes instead of a full bag of chips. Cranberries Cranberries are exceptional with their potential
to improve bladder health. Same was proven during a study too. In this study, a set of women had sweetened
dried cranberries for 2 weeks. Well, they must have been thankful by the
end, no one wants a urinary tract infection. So now that you know the benefits of making
this fruit part of your salad, feel free to make some fun combinations by throwing a few
in oatmeal or trail mix. Don’t forget to let everyone know your recipe
in the comments. Fruit Juices Even though eating fruit directly can give
you plenty of fiber and roughage, just having the juice can do wonders too. Many fruits such as oranges and melons contain
a high amount of citric acid. Citrate, or citric acid, binds with calcium. This, in turn, inhibits the growth of calcium
crystals. Even though Calcium is looked upon as a major
building block of bones, excess of it can be dangerous too. I mean, isn’t that true for everything in
life? Excessive Calcium is a major cause of kidney
stones. The complex formation with citrate helps bring
its level down in the body and keeps your kidneys safe. So sip on some lemonade as we tell you about
some other food options to add in your shopping list. Seaweed Seaweed, with its potential still unexplored,
is an underrated source of multiple minerals and vitamins. In 2014, a study showed reduced kidney and
liver damage from diabetes in rats fed with edible seaweed for 22 days. So consider this proof to make it a part of
your regular diet. Promise, you’ll thank us later. Foods Rich in Calcium Even though citric acid helps in excretion
of calcium, we must reiterate that only the excess is eliminated. Calcium, in general, is required for flushing
out urinary oxalate. Too much oxalate in your kidneys can cause
kidney stones. Calcium has a friendly relationship with oxalate,
much like us! Therefore it forms a bond with oxalate and
reduces its reabsorption. So, how can one strike a perfect balance between
taking too much and too little calcium? Well, by sticking to a recommended daily allowance
of 1.2 grams. So start trying out almond milk, tofu, and
fortified cereals to help yourself with that Calcium level. Now, one can prevent damage by switching up
their diet and amping up your water intake, but what about the damage already caused? For that, the next pick is what you need. Number 3: Cleansing Teas Teas and herbal ingredients have been an inseparable
part of human civilization since the very beginning. You could call it one of the best discoveries
ever made. Herbal teas and shrubs are usually rich sources
of antioxidants and active ingredients. One such example is the perennial plant, Stinging
Nettle. It’s rich in biological factors capable of
decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation. Similarly, according to a study, Hydrangea
paniculate, a beautiful flowering shrub, showed kidney protective effects. Its extract when given to the patients, showed
strong antioxidant potential. Another study was done on a plant commonly
known as, Sambong in countries such as the Philippines and India. Its extract showed the ability to decrease
the size of calcium and oxalate crystals. And, we know what that means, right? No kidney stones. Number 4: Supportive Nutrients Vitamins and minerals are essential for supporting
bone health, healing wounds, and enhancing immunity. We just don’t realize their importance until
the deficiency hits. They also help damaged cells repair themselves
faster. With the numerous roles they play, these supportive
nutrients are required to prevent kidney damage as well. Vitamin B6 is involved in glyoxylate metabolism. In the absence of this vitamin, glyoxylate
can speed up the formation of oxalate crystals. As a result, it increases the risk of kidney
stones. Another nutrient we are constantly bombarded
with in commercials is Omega- 3 fatty acids. Even after being well aware of its importance,
most diets are instead rich in inflammation-causing Omega-6 fatty acids. To deal with this, it is suggested to have
a 1:1 intake ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Don’t forget along with all such natural
remedies and healthy habits, you should be paying close attention to symptoms your body
shows. If it gives you a heads up or you feel something
isn’t right with your body you should consult a doctor as soon as possible. Why? Because prevention is much easier than finding
a cure, always. So these were 4 natural kidney cleansing ways
you should definitely incorporate into your lifestyle. What do you think is the best way to take
care of your organs? By adapting small healthy habits or through
big lifestyle changes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments
