Kidneys filter blood, removing excess toxins in order to maintain an optimal chemical balance in the body. When suffering from kidney disease, the filtration of toxins is not performed fully, and some herbs that would regularly be beneficial to the kidneys, such as bayberry, parsley and dandelion, may worsen the condition. There are safe and effective herbs that can help restore kidney health by bringing tone back to the kidneys, stimulating blood flow and helping remove excess toxins without any harmful side effects.
Select organic herbs. This is specifically important for kidney disease, because non-organic herbs contain harmful chemicals that will be hard to filter out of the bloodstream.
Fill a medium pot with four cups of filtered water and bring to a boil.
Measure 1/2 oz. organic dry hydrangea root, 1/2 oz. organic dry gravel root and 1/2 oz. organic dry burdock root and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, turn the heat down to medium-low and let the herbs simmer for 15 to 20 minutes (a method known as decoction).
Strain the herbs into a thermos. Drain out as much water from the plant material as possible.
Pour a cup of this decoction and take three times a day.
Toss used plant material into a compost bin or throw in normal trash bin.
Repeat this process every day for a month and review your kidney health to make sure the herbs are helping.
For tincture alternative, take 2 droppers of each herb in a cup of filtered water three times daily for a one-month period.
Try combining decoction and tinctures; for example: boil dry hydrangea root with dry burdock root, and then add gravel root tincture to the decoction once it is made.
Buy bulk herbs online to save time and money.
Research a diet and lifestyle that may further support your healing.
If you are diabetic, it is better to avoid burdock as it may lower or raise blood sugar levels.
Always mention any herbal remedies you take to your doctor, as some herbs may interact with other medication.
