Purify the Kidneys for Clear Skin and a Healthy Glow
The kidneys are important organs of elimination. They filter the waste from all of the liquids which pass through your body. They separate pure liquids from impure liquids. They also filter the blood, separating the clean blood from impure blood. All of the waste materials which are filtered through the kidneys are passed through the kidneys and out of the body through the urine.
Purifying Functions of the Kidneys
They kidneys can harden and lose their function if not properly cared for. Try one or more of the following recommendations to purify the kidneys and keep them soft and functioning optimally.
Lemon Tea for Kidney Detox
There is a lemon tea recipe which is good for keeping the kidneys soft, supple, and functioning at their best. Make lemon tea by squeezing half a lemon into a cup of hot water. You may add a teaspoon of honey for taste. Make sure to use honey over any other sweetener because honey has antibacterial properties and will aid in digestion. Drink the tea every morning before breakfast. After a week or two, you will notice decreased pain or soreness in your lower back, increased frequency of urination, and a brighter complexion. These are all due to improved kidney function.
Kidney Flush for Natural Detox
Another good and natural detox method for kidneys is to do a five day flush. While doing this flush, make sure to get adequate rest and drink plenty of fluids. For three days, drink plenty of natural, unfiltered apple juice, and eat raw apples for breakfast and lunch. The apple has an herbal effect on the kidneys and helps to dislodge accumulated toxins. On the fourth day, continue your eating plan, but take a mild laxative such as Epsom salts after dinner. This step helps to flush the system with water, washing out the toxins which have been dislodged. Before bedtime, drink half a cup of warm olive oil mixed with some fresh lemon juice. The olive oil will help congeal any stones which may be released when flushing the kidneys. The next morning, you may notice little green pellets in your urine or otherwise. These are likely small kidney stones which have formed out of deposits in your kidneys. You may repeat the nighttime routine for the fifth day to make sure your system is clear.
