It’s important that you reduce your consumption of salt and stay well hydrated in order to naturally detox your bladder and kidneys.

In the storage and elimination of urine, the bladder performs an essential role in our bodies. Believe it or not, it’s also an organ that is very sensitive to diseases, inflammations, infections, urinary hyperactivity, and even cancer. It’s worth knowing how to care for it, and improve its function. We’ll explain how below.

The need to repair and strengthen the bladder

Who has never had a urinary tract infection? As we said above, the bladder is a sensitive organ. Consequently, it will react against anything contained in the urine that causes infection or inflammation. And, at the end of the day, it may contain waste and toxic materials that must be eliminated from the body. This is why you need to regularly detox your bladder.

Incontinence or an overactive bladder are problems that can cause small changes in our day-to-day routines. Because of this, we will probably have to make more frequent trips to the bathroom. At first these are annoying, but they may become chronic.

We need to learn how to care for the bladder and know what foods and habits will keep it healthy and functioning correctly. You should never ignore any potential bladder problems.

More and more people are being diagnosed with cancer of the bladder due to tobacco use. Harmful substances in tobacco products infiltrate the walls of the bladder and end up causing the formation of tumors. It is a condition that could end up stopping bladder function entirely. In this case, a patient may have to live the rest of their lives with a bag attached to their abdomen to remove urine.

So, as always, our first piece of advice is this: if you’re a smoker, get rid of your cigarettes for the sake of your health!


1. Detox your bladder twice a week

It’s important to devote one day out of every three to take care of your bladder. At the same time, following these tips and guidelines will also help you detox your kidneys.

You’ll probably need to reduce or eliminate the salt that you consume in your meals. If you practice this cleansing for one day out of every three to detox your bladder or your kidneys, follow these tips:

  • Don’t drink coffee, soda, or sugary beverages.
  • Don’t eat foods with excessive amounts of protein.
  • Every three days, take one day to only eat fruits, vegetables, natural juices, and water. Avoid meats (fresh or processed), sweets, and refined flour.
  • Drink two liters of water a day.

2. Cranberry juice

Cranberry juice is, without a doubt, the best juice for treating and curing bladder problems. Many studies have shown the role cranberries play in the bladder by strengthening it and preventing infections. Besides that, it also removes calcium deposits that can damage kidney function, slowing it down and favoring the accumulation of toxins in the bladder.

Calcium deposits can also cause urinary tract infections, as well as kidney stones. Because of this, drinking cranberry juice on a regular basis is very healthy, and a great way to detox your bladder!
