KIDNEY CLEANSE

The kidneys are extremely delicate, blood-filtering organs that play a vital role in maintaining homeostasis for the body. Unfortunately though, these highly sensitive organs are prone to congestion and become damaged very easily.

26 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic kidney disease (a conservative estimate), and over 35 million have some type of bladder disease.

The kidneys make a tremendous effort in keeping the blood clean and pure. In addition to removing wastes, the kidneys shoulder much of the responsibility for maintaining the body�s chemical and fluid balance. They produce very important hormones that are crucial for homeostasis within the body. Chronic kidney disease itself can damage the cardiovascular system and lead to other serious medical conditions, like anemia, vitamin D deficiencies and bone disorders. Anyone suffering from a major illness, or experiencing chronic symptoms of disease undoubtedly suffers from these �silent� kidney stones. The most common causes of kidney congestion (kidney stones) are dehydration, gallstones in the liver and gallbladder, weak digestion, frequent consumption of refined foods, animal protein, dairy, caffeine and other stimulants, soft drinks, sugar, cigarettes, an irregular lifestyle, stress, lack of sleep, and frequent consumption of alcohol and medication, just to name a few. Even if you have cleaned up your act recently and eat a wholesome diet and lead a more balanced lifestyle, there may be a lifetime of congestion remaining in the kidneys. If any of the above mentioned pertains to you will undoubtedly benefit from a Kidney Cleanse.



What is the Kidney Cleanse?

The Kidney Cleanse consists of a kidney tea, that when taken every day will dissolve sand, grease and stones from the kidneys. Two other formulas are included in this cleanse to strengthen and tonify the kidneys and clean the blood. It is designed to last 25 to 30 days. For those who have a history of kidney stones, kidney related illness, experience chronic swelling and water retention, suffer from constipation, live a stressful lifestyle, or experience chronic illness, it is recommended to follow the Kidney Cleanse for at least 6 weeks. After the first initial cleanse, it is recommended to repeat 2 to 3 times a year indefinitely. Some individuals prefer to do the Kidney Cleanse for a few days or more, intermittently in between other cleansing routines such as the Intestinal Cleanse and The Essential Liver/Gallbladder Flush. This is a very good idea, because any type of cleansing and detoxification releases internal toxins that need to be filtered through the kidneys. The Kidney Cleanse should become a regular part of your health routine to maintain optimal health and wellness.

The Components of the Kidney Cleanse

Kidney Tea - The combination of the following herbs when taken as a tea can effectively dissolve kidney stones within a period of three to six weeks: Marjoram, Cat�s Claw, Comfrey Root, Fennel Seed, Chicory Herb, Uva Ursi, Hydrangea Root, Gravel Root, Marshmallow Root, and Golden Rod Herb. Store the tea in an airtight container or in the freezer.

Kidney Complex (RenaVen) -The herbs and extracts in this formula contain powerful phytonutrients, which strengthen, regulate, and enhance kidney function. This will boost the cleansing action of the tea. This formula also helps to mitigate tenderness in the groin area or around the kidneys (a sign that you are moving stones), and it also help to relieve stiffness in the low back and joints (a common, yet mild detox reaction for individuals with a great deal of mineral deposits in their connective tissues).

Protease - Protease taken on an empty stomach, away from food will promote the cleansing of excess protein in the blood. Excessive protein in the blood is a main cause of chronic kidney disease. It thickens the blood, which makes it difficult for the kidneys to filter toxic compounds. Too much protein in the blood also gives rise to the formation of certain kidney stones and is a main contributor to high blood pressure and heart disease.

Kidney Cleanse Instructions

1. Kidney Tea- Make 2 cups of the tea in the morning (instructions for the tea are below) and take it in 2 doses throughout the day away from food. Wait 2 hours after meals and at least 1/2 hour before meals. If necessary, you may drink at one time.

*It is better to drink the tea than to not, so use your best judgment.

2. Kidney Complex - Take 3 capsules in the morning with breakfast and 3 capsules in the afternoon with lunch.

3. Protease - Take 2 capsules in between breakfast and lunch, 2 capsules in between lunch and dinner, and 2 capsules before bed. Do not take with food- wait at least 45 minutes before meals. You may take Protease with the Kidney Tea or before bed.

Directions for making the tea:

In a glass container (not plastic), soak 3 tablespoons of the loose tea in 2 cups of purified water overnight. Do not soak tea in tap water or distilled water. In the morning bring the tea to a low boil for 5 minutes (do not boil on high). Cool and strain. Do not add sugar or sweeteners!! If you forget to soak the tea overnight, boil the tea on low for 15 minutes in the morning. Since some water will boil off, add 3 cups of water instead of 2 cups, and use a lid to prevent the water from evaporating. Do not reheat or refrigerate the tea.

Important Note: If you experience discomfort or stiffness in the low back area, do not be alarmed. This indicates that stones are dissolving and mineral crystals are moving through the ureters and urinary tract system. Any strong smell or darkening of the urine also indicates a major release of toxins. It should pass within a few days. Typically, most people experience few or no symptoms. This cleanse is gentle and works gradually over time.
