Today this body region is especially susceptible to exercise and looking after it. The highlighted region is the kidneys and the bladder.
- Dandelion tea.
- Marshmallow root.
Detox Tea Mixture: Mix some fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds, add pieces of fresh ginger and some lemon juice, and add some fresh turmeric root. Add to a teapot and add hot water, leave to cool, and sip throughout the day/morning.
The kidneys and the bladder are the body’s filtration system. It is very important to flush your system through and use Liquid Fast Days at New Moon or Waning Moon. If you want to strengthen your kidneys and bladder (anytime) brew a tea from one of the above herbs and sip it throughout the morning/day (best to carry it in an insulated thermos flask and you can sweeten it with honey or add a dash of lemon for flavour). If you feel dehydrated or to rehydrate after a Liquid Fast Day add a glass of Coconut water to your daily routine. It is one of the best ways to rehydrate your body.
Bathing in Epson salts or having a sauna/steam bath is good to get rid of toxins.
A healthy body relies on the right ph balance. A normal blood pH level is 7.35 to 7.45 on a scale of 0 to 14, where 0 is the most acidic and 14 is the most basic. If the lungs or kidneys are malfunctioning, your blood’s pH level can become imbalanced. We are usually too acidic, as sugar, meat, fish, dairy products, flour, alcohol, tea, and coffee are all acid-forming products and most of us just eat too much of these foods.
We need to eat more alkaline food in the form of dark leafy vegetables like spinach, avocados, miso products, tomatoes, almonds, garlic, onions, and parsley. The food that springs straight away to my mind is very counterintuitive. Lemons are actually the most alkaline foods there are (all other citrus fruits like grapefruit, oranges, limes, and tangerines are acidic foods – lemons are the only alkaline citrus foods). This is the reason lemons are used for cleaning and sprinkling some lemon juice on a breaded chicken, will help to alkalize it. One of the easiest and most pleasant ways to help balance your body’s ph level is to drink Lemon Water.
