Kidney Cleanse Recipe
I’m aging myself for sure by starting to write about physical issues, cleanses for the body, and so on. When I was younger, none of this concerned me and it never crossed my mind that scheduling regular maintenance for my “vehicle” was a good and useful thing in the long run.
When we’re young, we really do think life will go on with the same energy, vitality and health that we have when we’re 20 years old. Well, things sometimes change a little on the journey….
Time for reflection, time for “cleaning the closets” of our bodies. So I’m doing periodic liver flushes, a parasite cleanse, and a kidney cleanse. It must be time to let go of the old and make room for the new.
For more information, you might check out anything written by Andreas Moritz, a German medical intuitive and practitioner of Ayurveda, iridology, shiatsu and vibrational medicine. Not your average western medical doctor for sure. He seems to know a thing or two about health.
One of his books is called “The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse.”
He offers a kidney tea recipe. These are Andreas Moritz’s directions and advice, directly from his book that I mention above. I’m not a doctor. I know nothing, I’m not trained in medicine — I’m not offering advice. I’m just following Andreas Moritz’s advice. I recommend getting his book for more background information and the whole picture.
Kidney tea. Yum. Here goes. Confession: I have not consumed this yet, I am only mixing it up. No clue what it tastes like! Could be scary….
Take 1 ounce each of the first three herbs and 2 ounces of each of the rest of the herbs and thoroughly mix them together. Keep them in an airtight container. You may put them in the refrigerator. Before bedtime, soak 3 T. of the mixture in 2 cups of water, cover it, and leave it overnight. The following morning, bring the concoction to a boil, then strain it. If you forget to soak the herbs in the evening, boil the mixture in the morning, and let it simmer for 5 to 10 minutes before straining.
Drink a few sips at a time in 6 to 8 portioins throughout the day. This tea does not need to be taken warm or hot, but do not refrigerate it. Also, DO NOT add sugar or sweeteners. Leave at least one hour after eating before taking your next sips.
Repeat this procedure for 20 days. If you experience discomfort or stiffness in the area of the lower back, this is because mineral crystals from kidney stones are passing through the ureter ducts of the urinary system. Any strong smell and darkening of the urine at the beginning of or during the kidney cleanse indicates a major release of toxins from the kidneys. Normally, tough, the release is gradual and does not significantly change the color or texture of the urine. Important: Support the kidneys during the cleanse by drinking extra amounts of water, a minimum of six and a maximum of eight glasses per day, unless the color of the urine is dark yellow (in which case you will need to drink more than that amount.)
During the cleanse, try to avoid consuming animal products, including meat, dairy foods (except butter), fish, eggs, tea, coffee, alcohol, carbonated beverages, chocolate, and any other foods that contain preservatives, artificial sweeteners, coloring agents, and the like. In addition to drinking this kidney tea each day, you may also chew on a small piece of rind from an organic lemon on the left side of your mouth and a small piece of carrot on the right side of your mouth 30 to 40 times each. This stimulates kidney functions. Be sure to allow at least a half an hour between chewing cycles.
If you are doing liver cleanses, make certain that you do a kidney cleanse after every three or four liver cleanses.
In addition, those suffering from large kidney stones may benefit from drinking the juice of one to two lemons (diluted with water) per day for about 10 to 14 days. After that, drink the juice of half a lemon per day indefinitely.”
