Kidney Cleanse for Ultimate Renal Health

The Kidney Flush Diet

The 2011 U.S. Renal Data Systems Report found that 15.1% of Americans over the age of 20 have chronic kidney disease (CKD) at varying levels. This adds up to more than 26 million people with CKD![1]

Kidney function declines with age, but you can take good care of your kidneys to prevent the risk of developing kidney problems.

the kidney flush diet The kidneys are among the most vital organs of our body. In fact, a well functioning renal system is essential for many aspects of our body’s daily functions! Most people attribute kidneys merely to the formation of urine, but they do far more. Your kidneys:

  • Normalize blood pressure
  • Stimulate red blood cell production
  • Regulate water balance in the body
  • Filter wastes from the blood
  • Regulate sodium and electrolyte levels
  • Balance the body’s pH
  • Process vitamin D

When the kidneys aren’t functioning properly, the body can become extremely out of balance; sickness and disease follow.

  • High blood pressure is one of the most common results from a weak renal system.
  • Unbalanced blood electrolytes can also occur from poor kidney function. Maintaining electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, within a normal range is absolutely crucial. Electrolytes generate electricity, contract muscles, move water and fluids within the body. Even the slightest change in electrolyte levels from kidney malfunction can result in heart arrhythmias, nerve dysfunction, muscle weakness and even death!
  • Wastes and toxins that would normally be removed from the bloodstream continue to circulate throughout the body causing problems.

But I have good news! Just as there are natural preventive and treatment measures for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, there are also safe all-natural methods for keeping your kidneys healthy!

Signs of Weak Kidneys

Your kidneys work extremely hard as part of your body’s inherent detoxification system. Every day the kidneys filter 180 liters of plasma! This incredible job is not easy and over time, sediments can build up, which can eventually form painful kidney stones. Bacteria, viruses and parasites can also accumulate in the kidneys causing infection and damage to the kidneys.

Your body will often tell you when something is out of balance. However, many symptoms of kidney impairment or weakness go unnoticed or are attributed to other things. Some little known of signs of kidney impairment include:

  • signs of weak kidneysTinnitus
  • Low back pain
  • Loss of balance or equilibrium
  • Infertility
  • Low sex drive
  • Thin skin and nails
  • Foggy thinking
  • Bladder issues

Edema, which is an accumulation of water in the body’s tissues, is a telltale sign of weak kidneys. If you notice swelling in your feet or legs, or you have accumulated fluid in other areas of your body, then give your kidneys some TLC to help your body recover.

Kidney Cleanse Basics

A kidney cleanse is one of the best remedies for kidney health. A cleanse provides plenty of beneficial fluids, which flush out unneeded toxins and wastes from these vital organs. The foods and drinks consumed during this week-long kidney cleanse also supply nutrients needed to help maintain the delicate balance of blood electrolytes and keep hypertension at bay.

Because toxins can affect your entire body, there is no question that supporting your kidneys is crucial for keeping your overall health in check. Every adult could benefit from taking the time to nourish and restore their kidneys.

Nonetheless, those with hypertension, chronic electrolyte imbalances and edema desperately need this kidney cleanse to improve and reverse these conditions.

Cleansing the kidneys is a simple process and doesn’t require an exhaustive supply of tools or ingredients to work. There are 3 foundational principles of this kidney cleanse:

  1. Increase fluid intake.
  2. Eliminate kidney-harming foods and drinks.
  3. Consume kidney-nourishing foods and herbs.

Incorporating each of these three principles into a week-long kidney cleanse can provide lasting results for kidney health. Most of these principles can also be adopted into a life-long routine for healthy living! Regular kidney cleanses are now mandatory considering the stresses we put our kidneys under thanks to our “modern” lifestyles.

Kidney Cleanse Step #1: Drink more Water!

During this week-long kidney cleanse, it is very important to drink at least a gallon of water a day. Just drinking plenty of purified water is the first step toward an effective flush. Many of the herbs have natural diuretic properties and require extra fluid to properly flush the kidneys. Extra water helps avoid dehydration as well.

Kidney cleansing helps to flush excess uric acid out of the body as well as bacteria and other accumulations within the kidneys. Flushing excess uric acid from the kidneys can prevent or eliminate gout and kidney stone formation.

Not drinking enough water while using diuretics can worsen gout symptoms by causing uric acid to become more concentrated in the bloodstream. This is why drinking a gallon of filtered water a day during this kidney cleanse is extremely important.

Nonetheless, adequate water intake is always important, not just during a kidney flush. On a daily basis:

  • Men should always drink close to 3 liters a day.
  • Women should drink 2 liters of fluid a day.

The following kidney cleansing drinks may provide an extra cleansing boost.

Lemon and water

Each morning, begin your day with the juice of one lemon in a cup of warm water. Lemon has natural pH balancing properties, which contributes to healthy pH of the urine as well as the blood. It also contains citric acid which prevents the formation of kidney stones.

For a quick lemon kidney cleanse, squeeze 4-5 lemons into a quart of cold water and drink up. Or, for a warming beverage, squeeze one quarter to one half a lemon into 8 ounces of hot water daily.

Dandelion or Corn Silk Tea

Drink one cup of either dandelion or corn silk tea in the morning, as well as another cup midday. Dandelion and corn silk both have natural diuretic properties, which help to flush the kidneys of accumulated toxins and wastes. Dandelion leaf is also a good natural source of potassium, and will replenish any potassium that may be lost due to the diuretic action of other herbs. You can purchase these teas at your local health food store or online.

Kidney Cleanse Step #2: Foods to Avoid

It is very important during this kidney cleanse to eliminate foods and drinks that put unneeded stress on the kidneys. Many of these foods and drinks increase oxalate and uric acid levels in the body, which then lead to kidney stone formation.

The following foods and drinks should be eliminated from your daily diet during your one-week kidney cleanse.

  • Processed, packaged and fast foods (these foods are high in sodium and contain chemical additives)
  • Dairy
  • Coffee (try Dandy Blend herbal coffee substitute instead)
  • Grains (aside from quinoa)
  • Sugar and artificial sweeteners
  • Red meat
  • Alcohol
  • Salt

Kidney Cleanse Step #3: Recommended foods

When it comes to kidney health, it pays to eat foods high in antioxidants and other properties that support good health. These foods contain active enzymes that help in their digestion, rather than needing the body to manufacture extra digestive enzymes for breaking down the food. Digestion requires a tremendous amount of energy and that energy could be better used in supporting the kidney detox.

The list below contains those foods which are highest in antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes that contribute to health and detoxification of the kidneys.

  • Celery
  • Lemon
  • Parsley
  • Red clover
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Turmeric
  • Watermelon
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cranberry juice
  • Grapes
  • Spirulina
  • Blueberries
  • Quinoa
  • Barley
  • Asparagus
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Beans
  • Olive Oil

Before you begin your cleanse, plan out your meals for the week and purchase all the foods you will need for 7 days.

An example of a day of the cleanse is as follows:

  • purifying parsley juice blendUpon waking: 1 cup of warm water with the juice of one lemon.
  • Breakfast: Dandelion tea and an omelet with asparagus and onion.
  • Snack: ½ cup blueberries or watermelon
  • Lunch: Mixed greens topped with grilled chicken or salmon, assorted veggies and lemon and olive oil.
  • Snack: A handful of almonds
  • Dinner: Corn silk tea with baked fish served over quinoa with a side of sautéed veggies.

Remember to always drink at least one gallon of water throughout the day as well!

Juicing is also highly recommended while cleansing. If you have a juicer, try the following blends for their ability to purify the renal system.

Purifying Parsley Blend

  • ½ cup parsley
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 cucumber
  • ½ green apple

Watermelon Flush

  • 3watermelon kidney flush cups of chopped watermelon
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 lemon

Watermelon is often touted for its ability to cleanse the kidneys. It helps the liver process ammonia, a waste product from protein digestion, into the safer form of urea. This eases the burden on the kidneys. Like the name implies, watermelon contains lots of water keeping the kidneys flushed and the body hydrated.

Below is a recipe that can be used as a meal during the week-long kidney flush or anytime for that matter! Fish is a great protein that is easy on the kidney and pairs well with fruit such as the watermelon salsa below. The easy-to-prepare meal leaves you feeling fresh and full of energy, not tired and bogged down.

Watermelon Salsa With Broiled Mahi Mahi

Watermelon Salsa


  • watermelon salsa2 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 jalapeno minced
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 cup mango chopped
  • ¼ cup red onion minced
  • 2 ½ cup watermelon (seeds removed) chopped
  • ½ tsp sea salt


In a large bowl, combine watermelon, mango, jalapeño, onion, cilantro, lime juice and salt, to taste.[2]

Broiled Mahi Mahi


  • 6 mahi mahi fillets
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Arrange the oven rack so that it is about 4 inches from the broiler. Preheat broiler to high and line cookie sheet with foil.
  2. Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry.
  3. Brush both sides with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the fillets on the baking sheet and squeeze lemon juice over them.
  5. Broil on high for around 8 minutes.
  6. Serve alone or over quinoa topped with the fresh watermelon salsa.

Healthy kidney function is just as important as heart health, bowel health and even brain health. Our body is a system made of parts that function as a whole. If one part isn’t healthy, the entire system falls apart. This is why it is important that every system in the body get the proper care and support it needs and deserves.

Give your kidneys the time and attention they require for optimal health by taking a kidney cleanse. Flush out wastes, banish high blood pressure and prevent kidney stones by cleansing this important part of your body’s elimination system.

Naturally Preventing and Dissolving Kidney Stones

I’ve heard it described as some of the worst pain ever experienced. Women often report it as being far worse than childbirth and men are often left screaming in agony!

Yet 1 in 20 people will experience the intense pain of kidney stones in their life. What’s even worse, once you have had one kidney stone attack, your chance of recurrence is about 70 to 80 percent![1] The prevalence of kidney stones should alarm us. However, it is often far too late before we consider how to avoid them.

Many times kidney stones are so small they are hardly detected. They travel down the urinary tract without a person even noticing. However, some kidney stones grow so large they eventually become lodged in the opening of the urethra. When this happens, kidney stones create awful symptoms:

  • kidney stones create awful symptoms Extreme pain
  • Cramps in the back or side
  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Excessive sweating

Not all kidney stones are alike. Different dietary and lifestyle choices, as well as other imbalances in the body, can contribute to the formation of these kidney stones.

There Are 4 Different Types of Kidney Stones

1. Calcium kidney stones

These are the most common. Calcium stones often occur in people with high levels of vitamin D or overactive parathyroid glands. People with chronic kidney disease are also more likely to get calcium based kidney stones.

2. Struvite kidney stones

These typically form after a urinary tract infection. They are more common in women, because women get far more UTIs than men. Struvite stones tend to be jagged or stag-horn shaped stones and can become quite big. These stones can actually cause damage to the kidneys.

3. Uric acid kidney stones

Too much uric acid in the urine forms these kinds of kidney stones. This type of stone is far more common in men. A high protein diet can raise the amount of uric acid in the body and cause stones. Because gout occurs from excess uric acid, those with gout have an increased chance of having uric acid kidney stones, as well.

4. Cystine kidney stones

Cystine kidney stones are rare because they are formed from an inherited disease called cystinuria. This condition is typically diagnosed in people at a young age and will be treated throughout their lifetime.

Prevention is key for avoiding painful and inconvenient kidney stones. And overall renal health not only prevents kidney stones, but a host of other urinary problems, diseases and kidney disorders.

Drinking Kidney Stones Away

drink kidney stones away Preventing kidney stones is neither costly nor difficult. It can ultimately come down to what you drink! The beverages you choose each day can either prevent or promote kidney stone formation.

The most common cause of kidney stones is dehydration. This makes the simple act of drinking water the most important thing you can do to prevent kidney stones! Hydration is key not only in preventing kidney stones, but also for overall healthy renal function.

Dehydration leads to higher levels of toxins and minerals in the kidneys. When there is a lack of water, minerals and toxins aren’t diluted properly and can damage the kidneys as well as form kidney stones.

In order to stay properly hydrated, you should aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of filtered water a day. However I recommend checking the color of your urine as well to adequately assess hydration.

  • Dark amber urine is indicative of dehydration and is concentrated with wastes.
  • Bright yellow urine is still too concentrated and shows minimal hydration.
  • Pale yellow to clear urine shows the body is adequately hydrated and the urine is properly diluted.

Many shifts in urine color can be explained simply by how hydrated your body is at any given moment. Watch your urine color throughout the day. The goal should be to have pale yellow color to clear urine. If your urine is bright yellow or amber, then you need to drink a few more glasses of water each day.

Also, look out for other characteristics in your urine. If it’s cloudy, then you may have an infection. Blood in the urine may indicate you have a kidney stone or infection.

Drinking extra water dilutes the substances in urine that lead to stones. Strive to drink enough fluids to pass 2 liters of urine a day, which is roughly eight standard 8-ounce cups.[2]

However, there are additional natural remedies you can add to your water to boost kidney stone prevention!

The Kidneys and How They Work

by Dr. Howard Newman

4 Natural Ways to Filter Metabolic Waste from the Blood

Kidney disease
is on the rise in the United States affecting more than 10% of all adults. That translates to 20 million Americans who are suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) at varying levels of seriousness. –Tragically, over 90 percent of people with CKD don’t even know they have the disease.[1]

This is because those with kidney disease tend not to experience symptoms until the very late stages. By then, the kidneys are failing and there are large amounts of protein in the urine.

That is why CKD is sometimes called a “silent disease.” Many people, including non-diabetics, rarely feel sick until chronic kidney disease is advanced. When symptoms do develop, they may include:

  • cold drink weaken kidneysFatigue
  • Itchy skin
  • Ankle swelling
  • Puffy face
  • Back pain
  • Brain fog
  • Any change in urination including frequency, urgency, volume, or color changes

While diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure are the leading causes of CKD, other risk factors for developing this disease include: [2]

  • Anyone over 60 years of age
  • Those with a family history of kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Other types of infections

When your kidneys are not working as well as they should, waste and fluid buildup in your body. Over time, the waste and extra fluid can cause heart, bone and other health problems. Sometimes people attribute these physical symptoms of kidney disease to other conditions.

But early detection can help prevent the progression of kidney disease to kidney failure.

No matter how cautiously we live and eat, we are constantly absorbing toxins through the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. It is essential to remove these poisons in order to avoid catastrophic illness.

Here are some simple ways to support the kidney’s ability to filter metabolic waste from the blood.

Here are my top 4 natural ways to filter metabolic waste from the blood and protect your precious kidneys from CKD:

Weight Loss Fads Exposed

By Amanda Box

A new industry has risen out of the ashes of our obesity problems.  It is an industry that makes giant promises with miraculous results.  They shout, “Drink our shake! Take this pill! Watch your fat melt away!”  But, this weight loss industry is nothing but a band-aid for a giant wound.

True sustainable weight loss takes a lifestyle change, not another diet.  We must learn to adopt nutrition and portion control, not meal replacement shakes and  pills.

It is quite easy to sniff out a weight loss fad.  They can seem very attractive, but they cannot offer lifelong results.  Here are some things you want to look out for:

  • Over exaggerated promises of dramatic weight loss in a very short amount of time.
  • Pills that contain stimulants that are called fat burners.  Ephedra and caffeine are common stimulants.  These pills can be dangerous.
  • Plans that have you go a period of time without eating.  Some request you replace a meal twice a day with their shake.  Others require you consume only their drink for several days and consume no other foods.

I believe there is a skewed view of what it truly takes to overcome obesity.  Prescription medication for lifestyle disease has failed to bend the obesity and disease curve. It takes hard work, determination, and a willingness to fight.  Sadly, society doesn’t seem to value these things anymore.

Just as Americans like their “fast food,” they also like “fast results.” We have become a culture of instant gratification.

  •  If we want warm food, then we microwave it and it’s ready in just a minute.
  •  If we want to buy something and don’t have the money, then we charge it to a credit card.

I believe this has had a crippling effect on people.  It has created a society looking for the easy way out.  People give up when something takes time and hard work. It’s as if no one has heard the phrase, “Good things come to those who wait.”

Many companies have taken advantage of the fact that we are an instant results culture.  Websites, multi-level marketing companies, magazines, and even health food stores promote the newest weight loss products.  This has always been an area of the natural health industry that has made me very uncomfortable.  I cannot promote something that isn’t going to work.  And even if it did help someone lose a couple pounds, they are not making a true lifestyle change towards whole body nutrition.  My personal hope is that together we can create a conversation about a real, practical solution for the prevention, treatment and reversal of our obesity epidemic.

The Weight Loss Pill Scam

I hate to burst your bubble, folks.  But, there is no magic pill!

In a world where quick-fix diet schemes abound, you’d be wise to look at any magic pill with a healthy dose of skepticism. No pill on the market is going to give you dramatic weight loss results. Yes, there are carb blockers, fat burners, and diuretics you can safely take.  But the results are minimal, if you have any results – at all!  And most of those bottles say on the label that best results are seen only in cooperation with a healthy and reduced calorie diet.

Fat burning pills have become all the rage in the last 15 years.  However, these stimulants can be very dangerous!  Many states have even outlawed stimulants like ephedra from even being sold!  Other diet pills contain strong laxatives.  These laxatives can create dependency and cause nausea, diarrhea and abdominal pain.

No pill alone is going to safely change your waistline. Eating whatever you want while losing weight is just not reality.

Mounting evidence proves that the solution to lifestyle and diet-driven obesity-related illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and even cancer, won’t be found at the bottom of a prescription bottle. You must change your eating habits to lose weight and keep it off!

Meal Replacement Rip-offs

I cannot even count the number of times I have been approached about the newest “nutrition shake.”  Marketing giants have recently begun to switch the words “weight loss” with “nutrition” in order to boost sales of their meal replacement drinks.

Though this is brilliant marketing ploy, the basis of the shakes has stayed the same. They are still extremely calorie restrictive, filled with chemical sweeteners and artificial ingredients.  Using the word “nutrition,” leads customers to believe that those shakes are good for them.  This could not be any further from the truth!

Those who promote these shakes promise false realities, such as:

  •  “You can get everything you need, plus your daily vitamins and minerals in just one delicious glass!”
  • “It is so easy to lose weight and you’ll have so much energy from all the nutrition you’re getting!”
  • “Just two shakes a day instead of two of your largest meals and you’ll be healthier than ever!”

These types of endorsements make me shudder.  It’s as if they are saying that their shake not only tastes better, but also is better for you than a plate full of fresh vegetables.  Using a nutrition shake to replace real, vitamin rich foods is not an even trade!

My biggest problem with meal replacement shakes isn’t even the advertising!  It is the ingredient list!  Many of these companies use the cheapest raw materials possible to make the base of their shakes.  Then they add synthetically made vitamins and minerals to add “nutrition.”  Each time I am approached with the latest and greatest nutrition shake, I read the ingredients and I am always terribly disappointed.

When I look through ingredients on a label, I have several “red flag” ingredients I look for.  The majority of meal replacement products contain a slew of ingredients that are unpronounceable and definitely don’t sound like food. If your food ingredients are created in a lab somewhere, you can bet there’s a study out there discussing the potential health risks.

The most common ingredients in meal replacement shakes that raise my “red flag” are:

Reduce Cancer Risk by Drinking Water

By David Kekich

You can go a month without food but only a couple of days without water in your body. It’s the medium in which all your body’s chemical reactions take place. It transports your nutrients, oxygen and waste products and regulates your body’s temperature. Drinking enough pure water every day is one of the most ignored, most simple and cheapest ways to keep healthy.

Just how much water should you drink? When we’re young, our bodies contain about 70% water. Once you pass forty, your hydration level is probably down to 60%. By age seventy, your levels are usually under 50%.

Contrary to popular belief, lean people are much more hydrated than the obese. And drinking water discourages rather than encourages water retention.

Dangerous Waters

Even slight dehydration can disrupt critical cell functions. Studies have shown that people who drink eight or more glasses of water a day had less then one-fourth the risk of colon cancer than those who drank only two glasses a day.

Water drinkers also get:

  • Fewer headaches
  • Fewer muscle aches
  • Fewer hangovers
  • Less fatigue
  • Less constipation
  • Less heartburn
  • Less valvular heart diseases
  • Less bladder and other cancers

In fact, if you ask any physician if most cancer is preventable, the answer should be a resounding “yes.” The National Cancer Institute estimates 80% of all cancers are preventable. Of course, genetics can contribute to the risk of having cancer, but it is primarily the result of our environment imposing constant damage to your body. By controlling what food you eat, the water you drink, the air you breathe, the radiation you experience and what chemicals you expose yourself to, you can drastically reduce the amount of damage you accumulate in your DNA over the course of your life.

Other sources of damage to the molecules in your body include smoking, alcohol, toxins, air poluttion and, of course, water pollution. The amount of damage to the human body caused by these is truly amazing and a testament to how good our repair systems actually are especially a significant concern.

Most scientists’ theory of aging holds that aging is a downward spiral consequence of accumulated wear and tear from toxins, free-radical molecules, DNA damaging radiation, environmental damage from airborne and waterborne chemicals disease, and stress. Eventually, your body can’t bounce back.

There are some things that once damaged just can’t be repaired very well yet and cause degenerative diseases and aging, such as certain organs and joints, and of course your cells.

Healthy Water

To be properly hydrated, drink about one-half ounce of pure water a day for each pound of your body weight. If you weigh 160 pounds, that’s ten 8-ounce glasses or a little less than seven 12-ounce glasses of water. Drink more if you exercise heavily or perspire heavily, and sip during the day for the most benefits rather than drinking a lot at once.

That doesn’t mean soft drinks or energy drinks. If you want to risk aging on the fast track, go right ahead. Just understand that food engineers would have a hard time designing more enticing dehydrating sugar-laden toxic potions. A 12-ounce can of Pepsi contains 10 teaspoons of sugar. Ten! And don’t be lured into thinking the diet versions are better for you. They aren’t.

As for the more popular energy drinks? Poison in a can. Take all the negative effects of soft drinks, then add enough caffeine to launch a rocket, and you’re begging for health problems way beyond the jitters and crashes your body endures.

Water Damage

Many municipal water utilities do not provide you with pure water. Water filtration systems have become very inexpensive and are well worth the cheap health insurance they provide for you. There are several sink top models available, but the healthiest water is produced by “selective filtration” products that have the ability to remove contaminants and not minerals. If you have a reverse osmosis unit, make sure you take a good mineral supplement. Some experts advocate water ionizers that alkalize your water.

Vegetables and fruits help to alkalinize your system. You will normally need a large amount of vegetables and fruits to optimize your body’s pH acid/alkaline balance, so you might supplement with the four alkaline minerals:

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Sodium

An acidic body is a magnet for sickness, disease, cancer and aging. You might even try a teaspoon of Arm & Hammer baking soda in a large glass of water to reduce your risk. This will cost you pennies.

Anti-aging care is as simply as this: drink plenty of filtered water (at least one-half ounce a day for each pound of body weight), eliminate soda and reduce coffee from your diet.


 Penny for your thoughts!  Have you tried baking soda in your water?
