Kidney Cleanse Recipe

I’m aging myself for sure by starting to write about physical issues, cleanses for the body, and so on.  When I was younger, none of this concerned me and it never crossed my mind that scheduling regular maintenance for my “vehicle” was a good and useful thing in the long run. Not really. When we’re young, we really do think life will go on with the same energy, vitality and health that we have when we’re 20 years old.  Well, things sometimes change a little on the journey…. Time for reflection, time for “cleaning the closets” of our bodies.  So I’m doing periodic liver flushes, a parasite cleanse, and a kidney cleanse.  It must be time to let go of the old and make room for the new. For more information, you might check out anything written by Andreas Moritz, a German medical intuitive and practitioner of Ayurveda, iridology, shiatsu and vibrational medicine.  Not your average western medical doctor for sure.  He seems to know a thing or two about health. One of his books is called “The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse.His website is www.ener-chi.com. He offers a kidney tea recipe.  These are Andreas Moritz’s directions and advice, directly from his book that I mention above.  I’m not a doctor.  I know nothing, I’m not trained in medicine — I’m not offering advice.  I’m just following Andreas Moritz’s advice.  I recommend getting his book for more background information and the whole picture.

Kidney tea. Yum.  Here goes.  Confession:  I have not consumed this yet, I am only mixing it up.  No clue what it tastes like!  Could be scary….

Ingredients:Ingredients for Kidney Tea

Marjoram (1 oz.)
Cat’s Claw (1 oz.)
Comfrey Root (1 oz.)
Fennel Seed (2 oz.)
Chicory herb (2 oz.)
Uva ursi (2 oz.)
Hydrangea root (2 oz.)
Gravel Root (also called Queen of the Meadow) (2 oz.)
Marshmallow root (2 oz.)
Golden rod herb (2 oz.)

Directions:

Take 1 ounce each of the first three herbs and 2 ounces of each of the rest of the herbs and thoroughly mix them together.  Keep them in an airtight container.  You may put them in the refrigerator.  Before bedtime, soak 3 T. of the mixture in 2 cups of water, cover it, and leave it overnight.  The following morning, bring the concoction to a boil, then strain it.  If you forget to soak the herbs in the evening, boil the mixture in the morning, and let it simmer for 5 to 10 minutes before straining.

Mix ingredients throughly.

Drink a few sips at a time in 6 to 8 portioins throughout the day.  This tea does not need to be taken warm or hot, but do not refrigerate it.  Also, DO NOT add sugar or sweeteners.  Leave at least one hour after eating before taking your next sips. Repeat this procedure for 20 days.  If you experience discomfort or stiffness in the area of the lower back, this is because mineral crystals from kidney stones are passing through the ureter ducts of the urinary system.  Any strong smell and darkening of the urine at the beginning of or during the kidney cleanse indicates a major release of toxins from the kidneys.  Normally, tough, the release is gradual and does not significantly change the color or texture of the urine.  Important: Support the kidneys during the cleanse by drinking extra amounts of water, a minimum of six and a maximum of eight glasses per day, unless the color of the urine is dark yellow (in which case you will need to drink more than that amount.)

Store in frig in airtight container.

During the cleanse, try to avoid consuming animal products, including meat, dairy foods (except butter), fish, eggs, tea, coffee, alcohol, carbonated beverages, chocolate, and any other foods that contain preservatives, artificial sweeteners, coloring agents, and the like.  In addition to drinking this kidney tea each day, you may also chew on a small piece of rind from an organic lemon on the left side of your mouth and a small piece of carrot on the right side of your mouth 30 to 40 times each. This stimulates kidney functions.  Be sure to allow at least a half an hour between chewing cycles. If you are doing liver cleanses, make certain that you do a kidney cleanse after every three or four liver cleanses. In addition, those suffering from large kidney stones may benefit from drinking the juice of one to two lemons (diluted with water) per day for about 10 to 14 days.  After that, drink the juice of half a lemon per day indefinitely.” Again, all of this is from Andreas Moritz.  You can visit his website for more information or to contact him.

    Where did you get your herbs for the tea from?

      I got mine from a health food store that sells bulk herbs. You go in their “back room” where they have jars of everything imaginable. You go in and fill up little bags with whatever you need. You could probably find them online as well.

Rise Up by Andra Day

What a great set of words for these oncoming days.

Rise Up

 
You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
Bring it to its feet
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, oh, oh
We’ll rise
I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we’ll rise up
High like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
Ah, ah, ah, ah

Rippling Abs, Anyone?

Rippling Abs, Anyone?

During this strange time in history, I noticed y’all were tackling all sorts of interesting projects. I decided I needed one, too—something positive to remember the pandemic of 2020 by.
 
I decided to pay attention to something I had abandoned…
 
Nope, I’m not cleaning my garage. I am not organizing one single thing. I’m not planting a garden or cleaning up my yard.
 
Instead, I decided to take care of myself better. This, folks, has made all the difference for me.
 
With relatively little time and effort on my part, I feel so much better than I did a month ago.
 
On March 30, I got on the exercise bike and the yoga mat for the first time in a long time, and did 30 minutes each. I liked it so much that I decided to do it every day. But I fell short of that, and changed my commitment to every other day, which felt more manageable, reasonable, and doable.
 
I also get off the bike after every song, take a couple of sips of water, shake out my legs and arms for a few seconds, and get back on. This makes the bike project a reasonable proposition, too.
 
Daily walks of any length—by myself, or with my little guy, Jackson—are a fresh air bonus.
 
My recumbent exercise bike has pulleys to work my upper body while I pedal, which gets my heart rate up fast, and also helps my whole-body strength. It feels good to get up from writing, or doing a consulting session with a client, to do something physically challenging while listening to good music.
 
After only a month, I feel a sheet of muscles on the front of me I haven’t felt for a very, very long time. Goodness gracious. Who knew they were there. I’ll be posting rippling ab photos soon, I’m sure.
 
I have no idea what the scales have to say about my bike/yoga project—I don’t care. Paying attention to scales tends to send me sideways, and therefore, I’m ignoring them completely.
 
But—I LOVE the way I feel! Hang in there, everyone.

Check Out This Troublemaker in Relationships

Check Out This Troublemaker in Relationships

Sometimes we ask intimate partners to do for us what is actually ours to do.

We ask our partner to give us the reassurance, love or appreciation we feel is missing in ourselves, with the hope that they will give us what we’re asking for—and then we’ll feel better. They’ll take care of our problem.

But when they do give us what we’re asking for, it can never be enough, because we have insufficient context for what they’ve given. We haven’t build the inner foundation to receive it, hear it, welcome it, believe it. They try to help, but their love for us falls into our void, our black hole, our love bucket with no bottom.

As always, there’s hope. Check out the video below.
