Jessie, 28, loved to eat plenty of junk foods, and hated the vegetables. This cost him his left kidney at an early age of 15. Today, with his only one kidney left, Jessie learned to take extra care when it comes to anything he puts in his mouth. With a healthy diet, and regular exercise, Jessie is doing well.
Kidneys are important organs that perform various functions in the body. These bean-shaped organs are responsible for removing toxins and wastes in our bloodstream. They also release hormones necessary for maintaining good health. Working 27/7 with other organs in the body, the kidneys regulate blood pressure, increase red blood cell production, and synthesize Vitamin D.
Kidneys are self-cleansing organs. To support this function, you must consume adequate fluids such as water and other liquids, fruits, and vegetables are also good source of fluids.
If you have symptoms such as feeling fatigued or unusually moody, pain in your kidneys after eating, eczema, acne, skin rashes, bloating, sudden weight gain and problems like kidney stones and frequent bladder problems or urinary tract infections (UTIs), you might want to take extra steps to help your kidney and stay healthy.
Fortunately, there are organic herbs that can help you cleanse your kidneys. Here they are:
Are you surprised that the decorative garnish you often see in restaurant meals is an effective herb? I bet you are! Parsley is a potent, natural diuretic herb that can cleanse the kidneys. As a diuretic herb, it promotes increased urination to help flush bacteria and germs out of the kidneys.
Alternatively, you may opt to prepare a detoxifying drink by mixing a quarter (¼) cup of parsley juice, half (½) cup of water and a little honey and lemon juice. Drink it twice daily for a couple of weeks.
Note: For pregnant women, do not eat large amounts of parsley.
