The human body is designed in such a way that it finds the way to detoxify itself to a certain level. If we were living in the most ideal place with no pollution and no external stress, our body would have functioned normally and detoxified the toxins naturally. However, the fact is that we are not living in the perfect world. The world has evolved and modernized completely. It has created a lot of things for the sake of our convenience. However, while doing so, it has also given us some side effects. Every day we are being exposed to pollutants and toxins which are not only present in the atmosphere but also in the water we drink and the food we eat. Since our body can naturally detoxify only to a certain level, the additional toxins need to be taken care of using additional means. Remember that if you want to live a healthy and long life then detoxification of the body is very important. The most important organ which helps in the detoxification is your kidney. Kidney purifies your blood and discharges the toxins in the form of urine.

1. Drink Water Excessively

When we are talking about detoxification, this is the first and the most important therapy that comes to our mind. Especially if you are talking about the detoxification of the kidney, the most important thing that can help is water. Our body is a biological machine and the organs are different parts of the machine. For the machine to function to the best of its capacity, each part of it should also function to the best of its capacity. The amount of water you should drink depends upon your body mass index (BMI). You should get your BMI calculated to know how much water you need. However, even if you don’t know your BMI, you can drink extra water without having to worry about the side effects; in fact, the more the merrier. But always keep in mind that you should drink clean and purified water. If the water contains toxins, it will further add toxins to your body. There are several types of water purifiers available in the market for residential purposes. Drink clean and energized water through the water purifiers. You will be glad to know that drinking water does not only detoxify your kidney, it also detoxifies your colons and liver too. Additionally, drinking lots of water hydrates your skin and gives it more vitality.

If you are not in the habit of drinking water, you will feel a little uncomfortable in the beginning. You will feel bloated and heavy. Start with drinking small amount of water at regular intervals. Drink at least 500 ml of water when you get up in the morning. If you are not used to drinking excess water, initially your body will show some side effects. For instance, you may feel the stomach upset. But these are not the negative signs. You should be okay with them.

2. Change Your Eating Habit

What you eat also determines the toxin levels in your kidney and body. If you really want to detoxify your body then start with the change in your diet. Stop eating junk food especially from the roadside vendors. Junk foods may contain high level of toxins. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. There are some fruits and vegetables that are natural detoxifiers. A good idea would be to get the kidney function test (KFT) done for your body. With this test you will be able to determine the urea, potassium and sodium level in your body. You will need to increase the intake of potassium in your diet. Eating fruits like pomegranate and apple increases the potassium level and helps detoxify the kidney.
