Winter is the Best Time to Detox your Kidneys!


Winter is ruled by the water element which is associated with the kidneys, bladder, and adrenal glands. Your kidneys produce hormones for you, filter out excess water and sodium, and clean your blood.

During the winter months it is important to nurture and nourish your kidney Qi. It is the time where this energy can be most easily depleted. Our bodies are instinctively expressing the fundamental principles of winter – rest, reflection, conservation, and storage.

Reasons why you may want to do a kidney cleanse:

  1. Feeling fatigued or more tired than usual

  2. Skin problems like eczema or rashes

  3. Anxiety or moodiness

  4. Hormonal imbalance

  5. History of kidney stones.

  6. Weight gain, bloating or fluid retention

  7. Frequent bladder problems or infections
