Some of the body’s main detoxifying systems are the liver, colon and kidneys (and you can read more about them in my previous article 6 ways your body detoxifies itself). These organs are responsible for filtering the blood and removing toxic wastes from the body. They need to process a very high load of toxins – we ingest, inhale, absorb them with almost every step, with every meal, every breath. So you want to make sure your ‘detox trio’ is nurtured, and in good shape.

The kidneys work hard to keep you in balance. When they function at an optimal level, it shows in the way you look and feel: your skin is clear, your weight is better managed and you are feeling energetic and healthy.

When kidneys are running out of steam, this usually shows in one of the following ways:

  • You feel fatigued and low in energy.
  • Your skin becomes unclear: you develop rashes, eczema and acne.
  • You experience pain in your kidneys, especially after eating processed foods.
  • You have mood swings and feel your hormones are imbalanced.
  • Your weight starts increasing.
  • You feel excessive bloatedness.
  • You have bladder problems or urinary tract infections.
  • You can find more symptoms in my previous article about early signs of kideny disease.

By experiencing some of these symptoms, your body is telling you that it is time to take a period of rest and press the reset button. Some form of a body cleanse might be a step in the right direction. The idea is not new. Already the Ancients observed periods of purification for health purposes and most religions include bodily cleansing in their spiritual calendar. To learn more about the concept of cleansing and detoxifying your body, you can find useful information in my e-book The Detox Guide. This guide will teach you how to use detox to cleanse and energize your body naturally and safely.

Giving your kidneys a break makes sense. Here are four recipes for kidney detox juices which will facilitate your cleansing and bring your over-worked kidneys back into balance:

Watermelon Flush

For this juice, blend together two cups of watermelon and one peeled lime or lemon. Watermelon contains 92% water and is also a good source of potassium, which can help dissolve small kidney stones.

The Power of Three

Use a juicer and run through it half a beet, one cucumber and three carrots. Beets are good for flushing toxins and they regenerate red blood cells. Carrots and cucumbers support the kidneys in flushing out uric acid, which is known to cause kidney stones. This juice gives you a nutritional boost and it’s perfect for when you are doing a fruit and vegetable fast.

Radish Kidney Delight

Run through your juicer one cup of radish, one cup of cabbage, one celery stalk and one apple. Radishes detox your kidneys, liver and gallbladder. They are anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal and work against infections. If you suffer from kidney stones, radish juice will help to eliminate them by dissolving them into smaller pieces that can pass through the urethra.

Cranberry Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Flush

Blend together 1/4 cup pure unsweetened cranberry juice, 2 tbsp. quality raw ACV, water to dilute (you can dilute it as strong or as weak as you prefer) and a little bit of honey. The cranberries help flushing out bacteria and toxins from your kidneys, and the ACV also helps prevent kidney stones from forming.

Taking care of your kidneys goes hand in hand with taking care of your health and well-being. Looking after your kidneys is also one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health.

If you want to maintain your kidneys in a top condition so they can serve you well for the future, you should also read the list of habits you should avoid which are detailed in my previous post:

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Bob, have a look at my article about the best foods to prevent clogged arteries, as some of them can be added to juices/smoothies. However since you have a special condition, you need to pay attention to special instructions/advice given by your doctor as per your condition (for example grapefruit can interact with a number of medications so some people cannot consume it).
