Consume sufficient fluids and foods like watermelon, lemon juice, berries, apples and pumpkin seeds. You could use herbs like dandelion which help strengthen kidneys and clear water retention. Marshmallow root helps treat kidney stones, red clover stimulates excretion of water and wastes and nettle is a good diuretic. Also, practice meditation.

We are aware of the crucial role that kidneys play and how important it is to ensure overall kidney health. The kidneys help remove waste, control blood pressure, produce hormones, assist in producing red blood cells and help maintain bone strength.

In today’s fast paced lifestyle we are exposed to toxins of various kinds, due to which kidney detox is essential. Here are some ways to detoxify your kidneys and keep them in top functioning condition:

1. Increase Your Fluid Intake

The kidney can cleanse itself if you consume sufficient amount of fluids through the day. Water is best.  Fruit and vegetable juices are highly beneficial as well.

Watermelon Juice

Watermelon juice is a natural diuretic and helps flush out ammonia and uric acid. It also helps dissolve kidney stones. It is recommended to do a watermelon fast for a day to do a kidney cleanse. You could also drink watermelon juice everyday to keep your kidneys healthy.

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice aids in the elimination of toxins, helping with digestion. It contains citric acid that reduces urine acidity, thereby preventing kidney stones. Consume lemon juice in its raw organic form.

Coconut Water

Coconut water is great for a kidney detox as it dilutes the urine and stimulates the excretion of various chemicals like phosphates and uric acid. It is a natural diuretic and helps dissolve kidney stones.

2. Add These Kidney-Friendly Foods And Herbs To Your Diet


Berries contain antioxidants and help in flushing out uric acid. Add cranberries to your diet.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are great for detoxification since they contain antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. They also help shield the kidney from radical injury.


Dandelion leaves can be very beneficial for health. They help strengthen kidneys, clear water retention and soothe irritations in the urinary tract. You can consume this herb in the form of tea.

Marshmallow Root

Marshmallow root is a very effective diuretic. It helps treat urinary tract infections, kidney stones and bladder infections. It is a safe herb but if you’re taking prescription medicines also, consult a doctor.

Red Clover

This herb stimulates waste and water removal from the kidneys.


Nettle is another diuretic that stimulates the excretion of wastes and water. It is also very high in iron content. Consume in the form of tea.

3. Meditate

Sit in a comfortable position. Take a few moments to settle down and begin observing your breath. Gradually breathe deeper, but dont force it. This will help you remove all the stress that may be toxic to your kidneys.

4. Cut Down Or Eliminate Habits That Are Harmful To Your Kidneys


Smoking can disrupt the blood flow to the kidneys. It also increases risk of chronic kidney disease. The buildup of arsenic can cause acute tubular necrosis with acute renal failure or the sudden loss of kidney function.

Alcohol Consumption

Alcohol dehydrates the body and interferes with kidney function.

I was getting constant headaches and daily nausea... And then I heard my diagnosis - stage 3 kidney disease. I tried a lot of different medications that my doctor prescribed to stabilize my kidney function, but got no real results. However, one day I scrolled through facebook and accidentally found an alternative treatment method. It was an ebook created by former kidney disease sufferer. He claimed that he reversed his impaired kidney function and cured his kidney disease with only natural remedies. Of course, I was skeptical about it, but I had nothing to lose, so I gave it a go (by the way, you can find it here - http://healthykidneys.info/getreport ). After reading it, I didn't believe that some changes in my nutrition could help me to stabilize my kidney function, but I started to follow it... My doctor was surprised next time he saw my blood test results - they improved!! my kidney disease decreased to stage 2 and my kidneys are getting better every day :) After all I went through - I wish I tried alternative treatment methods earlier...
