Perhaps your body is telling you that it needs a kidney cleanse, and you are ignoring it. These three early warning signs show that you should immediately do a kidney cleanse:
When you constantly have the feeling that you need to pee even just after you come out of the toilet. Make sure not to hold your urine whenever you feel the need to go because this can lead to stone formation.
- Repetitive urinary tract infections
Kidney stones can lead to urinary tract infections. Those who have a urinary tract infection (even once a year) are recommended to do a kidney cleanse.
- Brown-colored, cloudy and foul-smelling urine
Dark colored, cloudy or foul-smelling urine show that you immediately need a kidney cleanse before this gets worse.
Parsley Juice for Kidney Detox and Liver Cleanse
Parsley juice is rich in various vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, chlorophyll, and volatile oils. This juice provides plenty of benefits, including kidney cleansing and liver detoxification. Parsley is known as a beneficial herb for the kidneys. Both, the fresh and dried parsley tea are very useful for kidney infections and can help dissolve kidney stones.
Caution: Pregnant women or people taking blood thinning medication are not recommended to use parsley juice in large amounts.
Juicing Parsley with Other Detoxifying Vegetables and Fruits
Parsley juice is too potent to have on its own, so you should mix it with other fruits and vegetables. You can these:
Watermelon juice very beneficial for flushing the kidneys. It seeds are particularly beneficial for kidney stones. So, always opt for a watermelon with the brown seeds rather than the seedless varieties.
Celery juice can strengthen the kidneys and liver and eliminate toxins. It is very important to use organic celery since the conventionally grown one contains various pesticides.
Beet or beetroot juice is a natural detoxifier and cleanser, especially for the liver. It has the ability to purify the blood and eliminate calcium oxalate stones.
Carrot juice is another natural body cleanser, especially beneficial for the kidneys. Carrots can absorb pesticides and heavy metals from the ground they are grown in, so make sure to find organic carrots!
Cucumber is a potent diuretic that can dissolve kidney stones and flush uric acid out of the body. Its skin contains many beneficial antioxidants. Make sure to use organic cucumbers because conventionally grown cucumber have a pesticide load and are coated with wax.
Fresh lemon juice acts as a natural cleanser and can effectively dissolve mineral deposits that can cause calcium oxalate stones. Lemon also delays oxidization of the other juices.
The two recipes below use different combinations of parsley and these ingredients for the juicer and the blender. Feel free to mix it up depending on what you have available. Or, for the ultimate parsley juice kidney cleanser and liver detox, first juice and then blend and combine all the ingredients together.
Parsley Juice Combo for Detoxification
Needed Ingredients for 2 Portions
Note: It is very important to use organic produce only so you can prevent further toxicity burden to the kidneys and liver.
- 2 large or 3 medium organic carrots
- 6 ribs of organic celery
- 1 medium-sized organic beetroot
- 1 organic cucumber with the peel
- 1 organic lemon (with peel)
- 1 bunch of parsley (as you purchased from the store) soaked in warm water
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
To lessen the degradation of the parsley juice, pour lemon juice into your collection container along with a couple of ice cubes. Put all the ingredients through the juicer, alternating between the beetroot with the softer cucumber and celery and the harder carrots. Keep in mind that you will get much more parsley juice by using a masticating juicer rather than a centrifugal one.
Stir the juice and drink right away. Sip the juice down slowly over a few minutes.
Parsley Juice in a Blender
You can also use a blender to prepare a refreshing smoothie and enjoy all health benefits of parsley!
Cleansing Parsley Smoothie
With its high water content, watermelon is especially suitable for blending. The same goes for cucumber.
Ingredients For 2 Portion
- Half an ounce of organic parsley (less is needed than in juicing as the whole herb is used)
- The juice of 1 large or 2 small lemons (minus the seeds)
- 1 large organic cucumber, diced with the peel on and seeds kept (peel first if you can’t find organic)
- As much watermelon with the seeds as you can fit into the blender
You should blend all the ingredients until you notice the parsley leaves finely blended and the watermelon seeds chopped up into tiny pieces.
Keep in mind that you should drink this smoothie right away for the richest supply of enzymes and antioxidants. The watermelon really doesn’t keep once blended!
Parsley Juice Treatment Time
As we said before, parsley juice is too potent. This means that you should not make it up for too many consecutive days. You can make up the recipes for up to a week-long juice cleanse and add parsley on every other day. After doing this cleanse for 1 week, take a break for 1 week. You can continue using parsley juice for kidney cleansing and liver detoxification. You can either make it up for longer cleanses or make it up a few times a week whenever you feel your body needs it. For a better tasting and more powerful liver cleanser, you should first juice carrots, celery and beetroot, and then add it to the blended watermelon, cucumber, lemon juice, and parsley.
