Simple Kidney and Bladder Cleanse
The kidneys and bladder rule over the element of water within the body. The kidneys are responsible for filtering the blood. By offering our body extremely high quality water, we help the kidneys do their job more efficiently. Organic water from fruits and vegetables and especially coconut water (nearly identical to blood plasma) are ideal substances to ease the kidneys’ workload. The kidneys are affected by salt balance in the body. When the body contains organic sodium or pure salts, it gains the ability to store water in our cells and can help the kidneys. The kidneys also function as the battery for the body’s energy,. The bladder is where water is to be removed from the body is stored.
The kidneys and bladder are cleansed by drinking large amounts of coconut water and vegetable juices high in organic sodium such as celery, cucumber, and seaweed. Cranberries are extremely helpful in dissolving of kidney stones. Watermelon juice with the rind is also an excellent way of detoxifying the kidneys. When cleansing the kidneys (fasting on organic water), it is often idea to remove all inorganic water and processed salts from the diet. Baths with salt and seaweed can help recharge kidney chi. While practicing kidney cleansing, it is helpful to add some force to the process of urination. When eliminating old material from the bladder, use the breath to push outward, helping expel and cleanse. Chi kung is also very beneficial to the kidneys in rebuilding and rejuvenating.
