The kidney is a vital organ in the body that eliminates metabolic wastes and also helps to regulate your blood pressure, maintain fluid and electrolyte balance, activate Vitamin D, helps in maintaining acid-base balance (excretes alkaline salts).
Every day, your kidneys process the blood and help to sift out waste products (like mercury, copper, arsenic-bound chemicals and other toxins) and extra water. The waste and extra water become urine. The urine then flows to your bladder through the ureters. Your bladder stores urine until you go to the bathroom. When your kidneys become overloaded with toxins, diseases of the kidneys and bladder can happen as you are unable to discharge the waste and urine from your body.
Why do you need kidney cleansing?
Kidney cleansing helps to cleanse the toxin built-up from your kidneys and the bladder. A cleansed kidney works optimally in its function to filter out pollutants, drugs, chemicals, and other harmful materials. Subsequently, kidney cleansing helps to eliminate urinary tract infections and dissolves kidney stones.

How do you cleanse your kidney?
There are hundreds of herbal recipes, and many different homeopathic remedies used for cleansing kidney stones. One popular way to cleanse the kidney is to use watermelon.
Purchase 20 – 100 kg of watermelon (which make up a few huge melons) and sit in a bath filled with water. Eat all the watermelon throughout a day (as much as you can), while continually emptying your urinary bladder into the water. You will need a lot of liquid to cleanse the insides of your body.
Another method you can choose is to do water fast or a juice fast to help you produce a gallon of urine a day. During fasting, avoid strenuous exercise. Light yoga, walking, gardening are all excellent means to stimulate your body metabolism.
However, do note that before you embark on any program, please first consult your health practitioner on how you can best do a kidney cleanse.
