The Ultimate 3-Step Kidney Cleanse System

Your body is always dealing with junk.

It’s a natural part of life that your body has to eliminate toxins. Our bodies naturally create waste products, and the food, air, and water that we suck in contains toxins.

That’s why our kidneys and livers have to be in tip-top shape. They are tasked with the duty of keeping our bodies clean. They filter out the junk.

The kidneys are continually filtering your blood, and they have many additional functions. If they aren’t healthy, your overall health will be a mess.

Symptoms of unhealthy kidneys or kidney disease include:

This is because the kidneys are responsible for supporting water and fluid balance, blood pressure regulation, and waste elimination, as well as filtration. So we don’t want unhealthy kidneys.

But how do kidneys become unhealthy in the first place? Damage to the kidneys is the primary cause of their ill health.

Key Point

Some people are diagnosed with kidney disease, most often because of type II diabetes and the obesity and high blood sugar that often goes along with it. But many other people who don’t have diagnosable kidney disease have weak kidneys because of living unhealthy lifestyles.

Some people are diagnosed with kidney disease, most often because of type II diabetes and the obesity and high blood sugar that often goes along with it. But many other people who don’t have diagnosable kidney disease have weak kidneys because of living unhealthy lifestyles.

Many factors can lead to the weakening of and damage to your kidneys. They include:

Unfortunately, many people can’t say that they’re free of all these factors that can damage the kidneys. Most people have one or more of these risk factors.

Your kidney is made of delicate filters called nephrons, the tiny functional units of the kidneys. The nephrons filter, or clean, the blood. If the blood pressure or blood sugar is too high, though, these filters can be damaged and thus can’t perform the kidney’s duties.

Protecting, Cleansing, and Invigorating Your Kidneys

To prevent this damage, we need to take steps to make sure that our risk factors are under control, and our kidneys are protected functioning optimally.

The good news is that you can easily take control of your kidney health by practicing the right lifestyle, eating the right diet, and supporting your kidneys with therapeutic natural compounds. Your kidneys will powerfully serve your health if you treat them well.

Step 1 - Improve Your Diet

1. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.

Researchers have correlated high potassium diets rich in fruits and vegetables with better kidney health [1]. Higher potassium intake typically leads to lower blood pressure [1].

With lower blood pressure, there will be less mechanical stress on the kidneys. High blood pressure damages the blood vessels in your kidneys and impairs the filters (or nephrons) from doing their job.

Another reason that a diet based on fruits and veggies is good for your kidneys is that, in addition to a high potassium level, it contains an abundance of anti-inflammatory antioxidants [1]. All parts of your body can be damaged by inflammation, and the kidneys are no exception. In general, medications, stress, and toxins can aggravate inflammation, so we need protection against this threat.

2. Eat less.

If you have extra pounds on you, your kidneys are more likely to be unhealthy. Obesity is a “common contributing factor” to kidney disease [2].

There are many reasons that obesity often triggers kidney disease. Researchers say it fundamentally changes metabolism in an unhealthy way [2]. For instance, obesity is closely linked with diabetes, inflammation, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure. It’s no wonder that obesity leads to a more rapid onset of kidney disease [2].

So make sure you’re not overeating and putting on extra weight.

3. Avoid refined carbohydrates.

Eat real whole foods and not the ones that make your blood sugar spike.

“Tight” blood sugar control has been correlated with better kidney function [3]. And you’re not going to have this control if you are eating processed grains: white bread, pasta, pastries, cakes, white rice, etc.

When the fiber is removed from grains, your body absorbs the sugar in them much faster. The result is a quick rise in blood sugar that can damage your kidneys. When sugar levels are high in your body, the sugar actually attaches to and damages your own proteins in a process called glycation. This damage is bad news for your kidneys.

Stick to whole, unprocessed grains with their fiber still intact. Choose brown rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, wheat, sorghum, and others. There are tons of options to choose from!

4. Eat less meat.

Cooked meats are full of toxic compounds called advanced glycation end products (AGEs) which can damage the kidneys [4]. And limiting these AGEs in your diet can vastly improve kidney health [4].

Vegetarian diets have been shown to halt the progression of kidney damage [5]. Other symptoms like protein loss through urination were also stopped [5].

Meat has much higher levels of phosphorous than plant foods. As a result, the kidneys have to metabolize phosphorous because too much of it can result in organ stress [5]. It also helps that vegetarian or vegan diets typically lower blood pressure and body weight [5].

5. Limit your salt intake.

Modern food has so much salt in it. When you’re eating out at a restaurant or buying packaged food, beware that a lot of extra salt might have been added. Our ancestors ate MUCH less salt than we do. We are meant to eat unprocessed and only lightly salted foods, a far cry from our modern salt-drenched cuisine.

It’s proven that salt can directly damage your kidney tissue [6]. Yikes! So don’t go smothering your food in the stuff. And salt can indirectly damage your kidneys by increasing blood pressure [6].

You don’t have to avoid all salt. You need some. But don’t drench your food in it, and ask your favorite restaurants to go easy on the salt.

6. Have a bit of wine.

The good news is that alcohol isn’t completely off limits. Have a bit of wine with dinner. Make it a half glass or a small glass. 

It’s actually been found that “moderate” alcohol consumption is associated with better kidney function [7].

7. Follow a Mediterranean-style diet.

You don’t have to go vegan to have healthy kidneys. You can still have a bit of meat.

A traditional Mediterranean diet consists of unprocessed fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, and seafood, and a small amount of other meats. This diet is associated with healthy kidney function [8].

A traditional Mediterranean diet consists of unprocessed fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, and seafood, and a small amount of other meats. This diet is associated with healthy kidney function [8].

It makes sense because it is a powerful anti-inflammatory and low-glycemic diet, characteristics that help maximize kidney function.

The Mediterranean diet is full of polyunsaturated fats that have been shown to promote kidney health and is low in saturated fat, known to harm kidney health [9]

Step 2 - Change Your Lifestyle

1. Lay in the sun for a bit.

Humans were meant to get some sun exposure every day. There are many benefits to relaxing in the sun for a few minutes in the mild late afternoon rays.

Researchers think that vitamin D plays a crucial role in regulating inflammation and preventing damage to the kidneys [10].  And unfortunately, many of us are deficient in vitamin D today.

Supplementation with vitamin D is also an option. If you’re concerned about skin damage, know that if you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, your skin will have more protection against sun rays because the carotenoid antioxidants from these foods accumulate in your skin [11].

2. Have an exercise routine.

Considering that exercise is known to lower blood pressure, blood glucose, and inflammation, it’s not surprising that it is also beneficial for those suffering from kidney disease [12][13].

Exercising regularly helps minimize those factors that threaten kidney health. It’s just a simple truth that the human body benefits from some movement and increased blood circulation.

3. Cut the stress out of your life.

Make time for relaxation, and stop worrying.

Stress can contribute to numerous risk factors that lead to unhealthy kidneys and kidney disease [14]. If you’re experiencing stress from social circumstances or internal pressures, you might be heading toward hypertension, inflammation, diabetes, or obesity [14].

Many of us are over stimulated, constantly attached to our phones, computers, the news, and the pressures of life. Give your kidneys a break by taking it easier on yourself and not worrying about things that are out of your control.

Step 3 - Take Natural Ingredients for Healthy Kidneys

    1. Cranberry

      Cranberry extract, juice, or the berries themselves can be of great help to kidney health. Cranberries are therapeutic in keeping the kidneys clean of kidney stones. It’s well known that cranberries can prevent the buildup of calcium oxalate stones [15].

      Researchers have also found that cranberries have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects in the kidneys [16]. It’s even recommended that cranberries be used as an “adjuvant treatment” to prevent kidney damage during kidney infections [16].  

        2. Astragalus

          This powerful health-promoting and anti-aging herb has been one of the most widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. Astragalus is an immune-boosting and adaptogenic herb, meaning that it helps ward off stress and imbalances in the body.

          A review of more than twenty studies found that astragalus consumption improved many markers of kidney function (such as serum creatinine and protein loss in urine) [17]. Astragalus even appears to help fight side effects of poor kidney function like anemia and malnutrition [17].

          Astragalus has traditionally been used as a remedy for kidney ailments. And modern research has shown many promising effects produced by astragalus. Kidney health has been improved in people taking astragalus [17].

          A review of more than twenty studies found that astragalus consumption improved many markers of kidney function (such as serum creatinine and protein loss in urine) [17]. Astragalus even appears to help fight side effects of poor kidney function like anemia and malnutrition [17].

          Experiments on animals can be valuable in showing the effects of natural compounds, and studies involving astragalus have shown that it can protect kidney health by decreasing signs of kidney tissue damage and inflammation [18]

            3. Nettle leaf

              Nettle is a great herb to use against allergies, but there is also evidence it’s good for kidneys. It raises the levels in your kidneys of a powerful antioxidant that your body creates - glutathione [19].

                4. Buchu leaf

                  This South American herb has long been used as an anti-inflammatory and has been shown to lower blood pressure [20]. By lowering high blood pressure, you’ll diminish the amount of damage done to your kidneys.

                  Buchu is also used as a diuretic for kidney infections, accelerating the flushing of the kidneys [21].

                    5. Goldenrod

                    A beautiful bright yellow flowering plant native to North America, goldenrod’s “anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, diuretic” properties help cleanse the kidneys, and it’s praised as being cost-effective and lacking any common side effects [22].

                      6. Horsetail

                        Horsetail has been used since ancient Roman times to soothe the kidneys, and it’s powerful anti-inflammatory effects are no doubt partly responsible for its effectiveness [23]. This herb reduces the inflammatory TNF-α protein in the body and can be used to fight arthritis and kidney problems [23].

                          7. Turmeric

                            Inflammation, inflammation, inflammation! Turmeric is one more powerful anti-inflammatory herb that soothes the kidneys and upregulates the kidneys’ own antioxidant defenses [24][25].

                              8. Uva-Ursi

                                Bacteria can irritate, cause damage to, and initiate kidney infections. Uva-ursi is well known as an antibacterial agent that is helpful in urinary tract infections [26].

                                  9. Cinnamon

                                    You know this herb, for sure. It’s delicious when used in foods, especially sweets. Cinnamon can fight several things that cause unhealthy kidneys. It can reduce blood pressure and blood sugar, and fight obesity, thus minimizing three kidney disease risk factors at once [27].

                                      10. Green tea

                                        A powerful health-promoting tonic, green tea fights damaging oxidative stress and inflammation that can damage the kidneys [28].

                                        Researchers also think that green tea can help reduce the accumulation of the toxic AGEs in the kidneys [28]. Green tea can even prevent the death of cells in the kidneys [28]. Green tea is more effective at nourishing and protecting the kidneys than other powerful antioxidants like quercetin [29].

                                          11. Ginger

                                            Ginger’s ability to fight oxidative stress and inflammation are firmly established, and researchers have detailed how ginger specifically improves kidney health [30]. Evidence shows that ginger improves kidney function and even the tissue “architecture” of kidneys [30][31]. If you want vibrant, powerful kidneys, make use of this herb in your favorite recipes.

                                            Conclusion

                                            Many of could be healthier these days. Let’s face it. The factors that harm our well-being are getting out of control.

                                            Too many people suffer from high blood pressure, chronic inflammation, high blood sugar, obesity, and diabetes. All these things damage the kidneys, so it’s safe to say that many people don’t have optimally-functioning kidneys.

                                            The good news, however, is that kidney health can be regained by practicing healthy lifestyle and dietary habits. Plenty of natural medicines can enhance kidney function and protect your kidneys from the many factors that damage them.

                                            It’s time to reclaim your vibrant health and strong kidney function. No more bloating, fatigue, and malaise. From now on, your kidneys will clean out your body effectively and contribute to your great health!
