1. Cut back on salt and soft drinks
These foods have become part of our daily diets, but they should be taken in moderation. This includes coffee, soft drinks, salt, and very high-protein foods. Every few days, try to have a mini detox and take a break from consuming these foods around twice per week.
2. Drink more tea, water and take more cranberries
While food is not your enemy and there are plenty of foods you can add to your diet to help with lowering toxins in your body, it is also essential that you include more drinks like green tea, ginger tea, and water. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet, cranberries in particular. Brown seaweed is also good for you. Fruits make for an easy breakfast, dessert, and healthy snacks.
3. Take your vitamins
Many supportive herbs help with keeping your kidneys healthy, including vitamin B6, Omega 3s and potassium citrate. All of these three herbs can help you reduce your chance of developing kidney stones.
4. Maintain a good balance between your mental and physical health
Stress can take a toll on your body, harming your organs. A simple meditation routine such as breathing exercises can help manage your stress. Proper breathing also helps to oxygenate your whole body. Another simple treatment called hydrotherapy uses water for pain relief which can help your circulatory system, also giving your body and mind some much-needed rest.
5. Try a 2-day kidney cleanse
A cleanse works wonders. Here is a sample of a 2-day cleanse. Of course, remember to consult your doctor or medical professional about changes to your diet, ensuring that a cleanse is right for you.
Breakfast: Drink a simple juice with fruit such as beet juice with dried cranberries, or a smoothie with spinach.
Lunch: Take another smoothie, or opt for hot millet cereal, with your favorite fruit.
Dinner: A salad mixed with greens, a protein, a drizzle of lemon and a piece of fruit.
6. Try Kegel exercises for your bladder
While it may come as a surprise, there are ways you can help your bladder. When done regularly, you can prevent bladder leakage. All you need to do is contract your pelvic floor muscles and then relax them. Hold each for a count of 10. And do a set of 30. 10 while standing, 10 while sitting, 10 while reclining. Do this 3 times a day, which adds to 90 contractions a day. Just make sure your bladder is empty before doing them.
7. Exercise your liver
There are a few exercises that can help your liver. You can feel it by pressing up and under your ribs on the right side. You can press it, rub it, or lightly thump it 100 times a day to keep it healthy. Furthermore, you can try trunk twisting, turning your torso left to right around 15 times on each side, helping your liver. Daily stretches done for about 5 hours a week can do a world of wonders for your liver.
