Doing a kidney cleanse is not hard, but very important. Your kidneys especially need help after you've done a series of liver cleanses.
The recipes below naturally stimulate the detox process in your kidneys, eliminating toxins and any stones you may have.
Note that while a liver cleanse allows you to see the stones leaving your body, you will not see stones with kidney detox. The goal is to dissolve kidney stones and uric acid crystals, without pain.
Some people wrongly believe drinking more water is the way to heal your kidneys. Unfortunately, it's not a one-size-fits-all cure.
Extra fluids are good if you need them, bad if you don't. If you now drink large amounts of water each day to meet a goal rather than quench your thirst, cutting back may be a good thing.
Drinking too much too fast can be harmful, even dangerous.
Don't have time to order special herbs? Try these simple home remedies.

Eating watermelon is a simple way to cleanse the kidneys, especially the nutrient-dense watermelon seeds. Don't buy the seedless kind!
Dr. Edgar Cayce's Tea: Grind 1/4 cup watermelon seeds in a blender or food processor. Pour 8 cups boiling water on top. Steep 10-15 minutes, then strain. Drink slowly over a two-day period.
Next time you shuck corn, save the cornsilk! Just make sure the corn is organic - NOT genetically modified. Never ever eat GMO!
Cornsilk Tea: Cut the dark ends off organic corn husks. Grasp the fine cornsilk with one hand while peeling the husks with the other. Place the cornsilk in a pan with just enough water to cover. Simmer 10-15 minutes.
