Kidney Detox: Chiropractic Functional Medicine Clinic

Maintaining kidney health is important to the body’s overall health and well-being. The kidneys are fist-sized organs located beneath the rib cage on both sides of the spine. A kidney detox maintains health allowing the body to filter and expel waste properly and produce hormones to help the body function at its full potential.Kidney Detox: Chiropractic Functional Medicine Clinic

Kidney Health

The kidneys perform several functions that include:

  • Filters and cleanses out impurities from the blood.
  • Produces hormones that regulate blood pressure and control the production of red blood cells.
  • Filter’s waste products stored in the bladder and expelled through urine.
  • Filters toxins.
  • Expels excess water.
  • Regulates pH, salt, and potassium levels.
  • Balances electrolytes.
  • Activates vitamin D to support body absorption of calcium for bone repair and regulating muscle function.

Kidney Detox

A key measure of keeping the kidneys clean and healthy is to engage in a healthy nutrition plan. Doctors recommend implementing lifestyle changes to help the kidneys filter at full capacity. Certain foods canย help detox the kidneys and promote their health.

Pumpkin seeds

  • Pumpkin seeds can help prevent the accumulation ofย uric acid, one of the compounds that cause kidney stones.

Grapes

  • These fruits contain a compound calledย resveratrolย to reduce kidney inflammation.

Lemons

  • Lemons help with digestion.
  • They have vitamin C, whichย enhances the immune system and supports white blood cells to fight infections.
  • Citrate binds with calcium in the urine to stop the growth of calcium crystals, preventing kidney stones.

Carrots

  • Carrots have beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and vitamin A.
  • Antioxidants for inflammation.

Ginger

  • Ginger can help in the dissolving process of kidney stones and prevents them from reforming.

Beets

  • Improves blood circulation to the kidneys.

Celery

  • Celery has alkaline and diuretic properties to help expel excess fluids.
  • It has coumarins which can help to increase vascular flow.
  • It is rich in vitamins D, C, and K.

Apples

  • Apples contain fiber to unclog the arteries, specifically the kidney arteries will improve filtration.

Maintain Hydration

The human body is almost 60 percent water, with every organ requiring water.

  • The kidneys (body filtration system) require water to secrete urine.
  • Urine is the primary waste product that allows the body to eliminate unwanted and unnecessary substances.
  • Low water intake means low urine volume.
  • Low urine output can lead to kidney dysfunction, like kidney stones.
  • Maintaining the body’s hydration is crucial so the kidneys can thoroughly flush out excess waste materials.
  • The recommended daily intake of fluids is around 3.7 liters a day for men and 2.7 liters a day for women.
