It’s important to reduce our consumption of salt and stay well hydrated in order to naturally detoxify the bladder and the 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 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 that 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.
Incontinence or an overactive bladder are problems that can cause small changes in our day-to-day routines – eg., forcing us to make more frequent trips to the bathroom, which are at first uncomfortable but 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. And take note of this bit of information – 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, causing a patient 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, leave the cigarettes at home 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. And it’s worth noting that 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 cleanse for one day out of every three to detox the 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, and also by removing calcium deposits that 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.
3. Drink juices that are rich in potassium for breakfast
We bet you’re wondering how to best obtain potassium from juice. It’s very easy with a blender and the following ingredients: one carrot, a stalk of celery, two bunches of spinach, some parsley, and a little water. This juice is rich and very healthy, and will serve as a powerful cleansing agent that also contains a lot of energy to help you start the day. You’ll love it.
Watermelon is great for the bladder and acts as a diuretic. Choose watermelon whenever possible and watch how it regulates your urinary system by preventing infection and facilitating proper kidney function. You can blend it into juices or add it to salads and enjoy it any time of day.
5. The benefits of chlorophyll
Chlorophyll is a great way to care for our bladder and improve overall health. You can find chlorophyll supplements in natural stores or pharmacies in capsule form. This natural compound improves the body’s metabolic function and strengthens the immune system. It’s wonderful for helping to detoxify the blood and give us energy – this health enhancer is worth taking at least five consecutive days each month.
Taking care of your bladder is basic, easy, and worth starting today.
