The kidney cleanse is one of Dr. Clark's most important cleanses. So many toxins pass through our kidneys every day, and this cleanse strengthens and cleanses our kidneys. It removes and dissolves kidney stones and urinary tract bacteria.
How? Dr. Clark meticulously chose seven herbs and roots. By breaking down each part of the cleanse, it's easy to see why she chose the ones she did.
So what are the roots and herbs? The roots (hydrangea root, marshmallow, and gravel root) are used to make a tea. And then black cherry concentrate, goldenrod, ginger, uva ursi, vitamin B6, and magnesium complete the cleanse.
Root mixture: (1/2 cup each)
HYDRANGEA ROOT (Arborescens) – A traditional North American Indian remedy to dissolve and expel kidney and bladder stones.
MARSHMALLOW (Althaea Officinalis) – Helps with cystitis and frequent urination.
GRAVEL ROOT (Eupatorium purpureum) – Another traditional North American Indian remedy to eliminate stones from the urinary tract. Also said to help with frequent urination in children, cystitis, urethritis, and impotence.
BLACK CHERRY CONCENTRATE (240 ml) – For kidney stones and frequent urination
GOLDENROD (Solidago virgaurea) (30 ml) – Helps with urinary tract disorders and infections such as nephritis or simply cystitis, removal of bladder and kidney stones. Also used against candida.
GINGER (Zingiber Officinale Rosc) (500 mg) – Helps remove methyl malonate that clogs the kidneys.
UVA URSI (Bearberry) (500 mg) – Used by North American Indians as one of the best natural urinary antiseptics.
VITAMIN B6 (250 mg) and MAGNESIUM (300 mg) – A powerhouse team to prevent oxalate stones from forming.
PARSLEY – Highly nutritious, and a natural vitamin and mineral complement. It can also help rid the body of stones, help expel toxins via the urine, and remove malonic acid.
Measure half of the roots and set them to soak in 10 cups of cold tap water, using a non-metal container and a non-metal lid (ceramic, porcelain or enamel-coated container will do). Add a pinch of Vitamin B2 powder.
After four hours (or up to overnight), heat to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Add half of the black cherry concentrate and bring back to a boil. Pour through a bamboo or plastic strainer into glass jars. Refrigerate half to use this week, and freeze the other half for next week.
Pick up some fresh parsley at a grocery store. Wash it carefully and boil in 2 quarts of water for 3 minutes. Drain into a glass jar. Refrigerate half and freeze the other half. Discard used parsley.
Each morning, pour together 6 oz of the herbal tea mixture and 4 oz parsley water, filling a large mug. Add 20 drops of the goldenrod tincture, 4 drops of HCI a pinch of Vitamin B2 and add any spice, such as nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. Drink this mixture in divided doses throughout the day. Do not drink it all at once or you will get a stomach ache and feel pressure in your bladder. If you've got a sensitive stomach, start with half the dose.
