Our kidneys filter out toxins, drugs and waste products that are harmful to the blood. The toxins, waste products and excess water become urine that flows down into the bladder. The bladder acts as storage of urine until the time that it is ready to be excreted out of the body. Over time, the kidneys may become diseased if they are overloaded with toxins or they may get clogged because of excess fat caused by years and years of high fat diet. It is important to always ensure that our kidneys are functioning at an optimal level and we can ensure this by detoxifying or cleansing the kidneys from time to time.
This is done by making a loose fist with your hand and gently tapping the kidney area. This mechanical action will help stimulate the kidney to perform better.
To make a ginger compress you need warm water in a pot. Grate some ginger roots into the warm water and allow the ginger juice to be absorbed by the warm water for at least 15 minutes. Get some thick washcloth or towel and dip them into the ginger solution then wring out the excess solution. Apply the towel at the back near the kidney area for 5-10 minutes then reapply the compress for a total 30 minutes to 45 minutes.
Kidney detox is as simple as taking lots and lots of fluids. You can detoxify your kidneys by eating lots and lots of watermelon which helps flush out toxins and waste materials from the body every time you urinate.
