You don't have to drink too much alcohol to damage your liver, kidneys and bladder. Some viruses can damage your liver. Being overweight can also lead to problems with your liver, which can lead to cirrhosis and ultimately liver failure. Your kidneys are just as vulnerable to damage. High blood pressure is one of the worst things for kidney health. And your bladder can be damaged by nerve damage which means that the bladder muscles don't get the message that urine needs releasing. Detoxing can help you rebalance your body in so many ways and it will also help keep your liver, kidneys and bladder functioning properly.
It's true that the best thing to drink is water. Water helps the body to function properly. If you make water your primary drink, you'll see healthier skin and teeth when you look in the mirror and you'll feel better within too. Cutting down on coffee, soft drinks and lowering your salt intake is a great way of carrying out a mini detox. If you can break these foods from your diet twice a week, your internal organs will benefit as they take a break from processing them.
Tea and cranberries
Taking green tea, ginger tea and drinking water will lower the toxins in your body. Add more fruit and vegetables to your diet too. Try cranberries and brown seaweed. Try these things and find what you like. You could even combine them. Why not add cranberries to tea? Eating cranberries regularly lowers the occurrence of urinary tract infections in the bladder, particularly in women. They're also good for your liver, although there's not as much scientific evidence to back that up. Cranberries are very high in oxalates though which can cause kidney stones. As with anything you eat or drink, take in moderation and you'll feel the benefits.
If you change your diet dramatically, you'll get the vitamins you need from fruit and vegetables. If you're considering mini-detoxing, you'll need to take vitamins every day to give your body what it needs. For better kidney health take vitamin B-6, potassium citrate and omega 3s. Each of these helps lower your chance of developing kidney stones and they're available through multivitamin tablets.
One of the best vitamins for a healthy liver is turmeric. It contains curcumin which combats the build-up of toxins. Coconut oil will also detoxify the liver. You should also take milk thistle, especially if you have alcoholic liver disease or acute and chronic hepatitis, as it guards against liver scarring.
Avoid taking too much vitamin C if you're experiencing problems with your bladder. Too much of it in your system can cause bladder flares. You need more vitamin D in your diet, although don't exceed 2000mg per day.
