How to do a kidney cleanse fast

Your kidneys serve an important function by filtering and managing the waste your body produces, so it’s essential to keep them healthy. One way to keep your kidneys functioning properly is to do a kidney cleansing fast. Not only can a kidney cleansing fast dissolve kidney stones, it can also help rejuvenate and detoxify the organs for a healthier system.

Steps

Consult your doctor before starting a kidney cleansing fast. Depending on your current health conditions, it may not be safe. A kidney cleansing fast can also affect medication absorption.

Reduce the amount of food you eat a few days before your kidney cleansing fast. This will give your body time to adjust and will be easier once you start the cleanse.

Determine how much water you should consume each day. As part of the fast, you should consume half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should aim to drink 100 ounces per day.

Drink only water for 3 days, as well as organic vegetable or fruit juice, or even herbal tea. No food is allowed during this time.

Consider adding a pinch of Himalayan salt-up to 1/4 teaspoon-to every 10 ounces of water. While fruit juice and teas are fine to drink during your kidney cleansing fast, avoid alcohol and caffeine.

Combat potassium and electrolyte loss by drinking a vegetable broth.

Combine potato and carrot peels, chopped beets, onion, garlic cloves, celery and dark green leafy vegetables. Add water and simmer for more than one hour.

Include the broth in your kidney fasting cleanse by drinking it 2 or 3 times a day during the fast. Throw away the vegetables and do not eat them during your cleanse.

Eat watermelon at the end of your kidney cleanse to further your treatment. Experts suggest that eating 2 large organic watermelons will help empty toxins from your kidneys.

Continue to ease out of the fast slowly, eating raw fruits and vegetables for a few days after you break the fast and before returning to your regular diet.

Stress – Emotional, mental & physical

When we find ourselves in situations where what we are doing is not aligned with our values and beliefs, we experience stress and often with that, some pain. If we are focussing more energy in any one of these quadrants (emotional, mental, physical, spiritual) then one or more of the other quadrants will suffer.  This is when we experience imbalance.

When we don’t feel heard, or despite best efforts we don’t get the desired results, or even when we overwork our bodies or minds to achieve acceptance, we go out of balance and usually one area or more will suffer.

Symptoms of this stress could include:

Relationship problems

Depression

Weight issues

Fatigue

Insomnia

Lack of direction and focus

Pain
