Kidney Cleanse Program

The kidneys are probably one of the most hard working and sensitive organs of your body. For instance whatever the liver lets go of in terms of toxicity and emotions, has also to go via the kidneys on it’s exit out of the body. It makes sense then that you start your cleansing journey with this Kidney Cleanse Program.

Seek the guidance of your preferred health care professional if you are unsure of the relevance of any detox or cleansing program. If you have a serious health complaint you may like to undertake the Kidney Cleanse Program for 6-8 weeks or longer. Again seek guidance.

Week One
During Week One of the Kidney Cleanse drink beetroot water. Beetroot water is recommended as it has a stronger detoxifying effect on the kidneys than the barley water. However, the barley water is an effective alternative if you do not like beetroot or are unable to obtain fresh beetroot.

Beetroot Water
Drinking the water from simmered beetroot actually starts to dissolve crystal and stone formation in the kidneys. Depending on the health of a person and their long-term dietary habits, this simple cleanse can be very powerful. Headaches and mild nausea can be all part of what is known as a ‘healing crisis’ and will soon pass as the toxins come out of the system. Beetroot also purifies the blood as well as the liver and encourages peristaltic action in the intestines.

You will probably need 2-3 batches of beetroot water to complete the seven days.

Wash six medium beetroot and cut the top and tail off them – you do not need to chop them up (old German recipe). Always use organic produce where available. Put the beetroot in 2-3 litres of boiling water and simmer for one hour, with the lid on. Allow to cool with the lid on for at least an hour, leaving the beetroot in the pan. When cooled remove the beetroot and store the liquid in the fridge. You may eat the beetroot if you like, but most of the nutrients will be in the water.

Drink one to four cups per day (starting gradually) for seven days. The liquid may be drunk hot or at room temperature. Store the beetroot water in the fridge, however, do not drink at fridge temperature; we recommend you add some hot water from the kettle, before drinking.

This cleanse may be adapted to suit you individually. Perhaps if you have time off work and really want to go for it, you may like to drink four cups per day. If you have a busy schedule, perhaps you can drink one cup when you first wake up in the morning and one cup just before you go to bed. If you are over seventy, very sick or toxic, or have a history of diagnosed kidney stones, or kidney disease, it is advisable to take only one cup of the beetroot liquid per day, preferably first thing in the morning. In this case, the beetroot liquid must be taken for at least ten days.

BARLEY WATER
This is an alternative to the taking the beetroot water.

Use pot barley (preferably organic), although pearl barley will do in an emergency. Combine 1 cup of barley add 5-8 cups of spring water. You can soak overnight, but this is not essential. Add 1 stick of cinnamon and simmer for 20 minutes, strain immediately and cool. Always strain the barley water immediately, because as the broth cools, the barley re-absorbs the water and you will be left with very little resulting liquid.

When the barley water is cool it is optional to add the juice of 1 to 2 lemons and some grated ginger. You can re-use the barley with a little less water.

What diet do you recommend whilst I am on this Program?
The Detox 4 Life Diet and also see Food Theory for Healthy Living – Acid & Alkaline Chart.

  • Sugar-free Black Cherry Jam
  • Fresh Parsley Leaf
  • Asparagus
  • Cranberries and their juice

    (chop up the fresh ginger root and add boiling water, especially recommended in winter)
What Can I Expect During The Kidney Cleanse Program?
Each individual will respond differently to the program. ‘The Healing’ Crisis is often referred to as a stage where a person, undertaking a detox program may feel worse, before they feel better. This may last for a couple of hours or a couple of days, sometimes it may last a week or longer. The Healing Crisis may be emotional and/or physical. The sign your body is healing may include…

  • Increased urination
  • Irritability, upset, anxiety, generally emotional
  • head aches – often back of head, neck (but may be forehead)
  • lower back aching, knees, hips aching
  • skin eruptions

What Can I Do To Help Myself Through The Healing Crisis Transition?
  • Take regular short cold showers, the more the better
  • Allow yourself to rest and sleep for longer periods
  • Be in nature – go for short walks, gentle swims, Chi Gong and/or Yoga
  • Take time out from visits to the gym, jogging or excessive exercise
