The kidneys are important organs because they are literally filters for our blood and keep the waste or toxins out of the body by releasing them through the urine.
The bad and unhealthy lifestyle can cause many toxins to gather in the body all over, and the kidneys will struggle to get rid of them.
First rule is STAY WELL HYDRATED to be able to flush out all those toxic materials.
Hydration prevents a lot of problems like kidney stones, kidney diseases or build-up of toxins in the body that can trigger some other health issue.
To start cleansing the body, first you need one natural ingredient you can find anywhere- parsley.
Why does parsley help with the kidneys cleanse?
Parsley has a lot of vitamin K, vitamin A and vitamin C and also iron, folic acid and furanocoumarins; among others also many kinds of terpenoid components that are crucial for a healthy kidney.
It is a surprise, but the parsley is anti-anemic, antimicrobial, anticoagulant, antihyperlipidemic (lowers down the level of triglycerides), also antihepatotoxic (for liver cleanse purpose), antihypertensive (lowers down or resolves high blood pressure complications), hypoglycaemic (levels and balances the blood sugar), it is a diuretic (makes you urinate regularly), hypouricemic too AND estrogenic (important for good work of the reproductive system in women and less menstruation problems).
The traditional medicine techniques tell that parsley is the best cure for removing kidney stones.
The parsley also cleanses the kidneys by accelerating the production process of urine and subsequently urine flow that flushes out those stones quicker. Prevention of salt retention into the kidneys is also another benefit – those same salts cause the stones actually.
Lastly, the parsley relaxes you and soothes the nerves by reducing anxiety to the lowest levels.
How is parsley-kidney-cleanse tea made?
When you make this tea, you must use fresh, organic herbs to make the most of it and get the best results worth your money. Another option is using dry parsley leaves.
- A bunch of organic, fresh parsley leaves
- 8 cups filtered water
- 2 tbsp raw honey (organic)
- Juice of half a lemon, fresh
Wash the leaves and chop them in large pieces or medium size. Put them in a bowl of water. Boil that water, simmering it for 10 minutes more or less. After this, strain this liquid in a pan or saucepan, cover with a lid or plate and let that cool off. Add the lemon and honey for a good taste and consume 1 or 2 cups every day. It is best to store it in glass containers and in the fridge – maximum time of keeping it is one week.
There are no side effects to parsley, but some studies claimed that too much parsley can induce menstruation changes (early appearing) or even abortion, that is why pregnant women should consult first before consuming this. If you are on medications about the blood or the blood pressure, you MUST talk to your doctor beforehand.
