The Kidney Health Plan
Friday, July 1st 2005
There are many herbs that have traditionally been used to nourish and tone the kidneys including Uva Ursi, Juniper berry, Cramp Bark, Ginger, Goldenseal root, Marshmallow root (mucilaginous) and Parsley herb.
The kidneys are able to repair themselves to some extent, depending on the age and general health of the person. Your kidney protection plan should include drinking plenty of water - at least 6 to 8 glasses per day. This is particularly helpful in preventing kidney stones. Remember, the kidneys are not able to function to the best of their ability on tea or coffee!
