Are your kidneys in need of cleansing?

If you have any discoloration under your eyes (dark circles) your kidneys are under stress and in need of cleansing. Avoid eating heavy meals late at night, drink plenty of pure water, take kidney cleansing herbs such as nettles, dandelions, and chanca piedra. Andreas Moritz has put together a great concoction of powerful kidney cleansing herbs (cats claw, marjoram, uva ursi, fennel feed, comfrey root, goldenrod, gravel root, hygrangea)which you drink in a tea over a period of 20 days. The kidneys are very delicate, blood-filtering organs that easy get congested as a result of poor digestion, stress and an irregular lifestyle. The main cause of congestion in the kidneys is kidney stones. Most kidney stones/ crystals/ sand, however, are too small to be recognized through modern diagnostic instruments such as X-rays.

These herbs, when taken daily for a period of 20-30 days, can help dissolve and eliminate all the various types of kidney stones, including uric acid stones, oxalic acid stones, phosphate stones, and amino acid stones. If you have a history of kidney stones and want to completely clean out your kidneys you may need to repeat this cleanse several times, at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks.

I also highly recommend various Chinese tonic jing herbs to strengthen the kidneys such as hu shou wu, cordyceps mushroom, rehmannia, reishi, chaga and goji berries. Walnuts also have a great affinity for the kidneys too.

A diet high in protein puts huge stress on our kidneys. Many bodybuilders are doing great harm to their bodies by consuming huge amounts of animal protein just to get another half inch on their biceps. Your face is a mirror to your health, not your muscle mass.
