The Importance of Kidney Cleansing:By Miriam Young!

The most important function of the kidneys is in the regulation of the body's water content. By way of excretion or reabsorption, the kidneys have the ability to differentiate between wastes and vital substances. Considering water comprises two thirds of our body mass, the kidneys are a very important, and very busy organ. As well as playing an essential role in the maintenance of blood pressure, the kidneys regulate salt balance and maintain the acid/alkali balance of the blood. Correct functioning of the kidneys is vital to health.

Spiritually speaking, the kidneys connect us to our sacral centre, (second chakra, Tan Tien or Hara), which connects us to all life, as in other humans, trees, plants etc. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys store the "Jing" or life essence/vitality of a person. There is "congenital" jing, which we are born with, and relates to the constitution of our parents. There is also "acquired" jing, which can be obtained from food and herbs; these can fortify inherited jing. Substances that deplete Jing include: Pesticides in food, chlorinated water, alcohol, drugs, pharmaceuticals including antibiotics, unnecessary or excessive intake of vitamin and mineral supplements, (particularly vitamin C and calcium), coffee and tea, animal proteins, low fat foods, genetically engineered food, carbonated beverages, chocolate and sweets, tobacco, food additives and heavy metals.

From a Medical Herbalists point of view, a concoction of these substances combined with dehydration, excessive fear, anxiety, stress and/or overwork continually over a period of time, will eventually cause the formation of mineral deposits in the kidneys - crystals and stones. Even though kidney stones affect only 5-10% of the population, most people have small crystalline deposits of some kind. It is only when they reach large sizes, being several inches across, do they cause acute pain. (There is a 60-70% chance of recurrence in these people). Most of us have small deposits however, and it is these small deposits that may cause chronic problems and imbalances in the body.

If you suffer from hair loss, premature ageing, lower back pain, knee and hip problems, hearing loss, tinnitus or any ear disease at all, it may be interesting to note that these are all symptoms of kidney crystalline formation. In fact, all bone problems, urinary and reproductive imbalances, (including infertility and good old period pain!), as well as sexual problems, can all be symptoms indicating toxic build up in the plumbing system of our bodies. Even the lungs cannot function optimally, if the kidneys are carrying a toxic load and/or are depleted.

Many kidney stone formations result from sleeping in after 6 or 7am. Since urine is forced to stay in the body longer than normal, some of its constituents begin to precipitate and form crystals. If sleeping until 8am for example becomes a regular habit, there may even be bacterial infection, accompanied by pain in the joints, headaches or heaviness.

According to the tradition of Chinese Medicine, the emotion 'fear' relates to kidney energy, cleansing the kidneys may enable a person to release deep-seated fear that has been depleting their vital Jing since childhood. Quite often the side effects of weak kidneys are feeling fearful coupled with an inferiority complex. This may include feeling very timid and panicky, accompanied by breathing difficulties. We may work on our fear to release stagnant energy in our kidneys. We can cleanse our kidneys to regain emotional balance and to return to our essential nature-that of peace. When we are rebalanced, we know what is natural fear and what is excessive.

'Miriam Young's Pure Plant Kidney Cleanse' involves organic fruit and vegetable juicing, specific diet or (if attending The Detox For Life Health Retreat, juice fasting), a special way to prepare beetroot, and the taking of liquid herbal medicine (tincture).

The herbal tincture contains eight different herbs, each designed to dissolve a different type of kidney stone or crystalline formation. If you have been diagnosed with kidney stones for example it makes no difference whether they are made up of calcium oxalate (approximately 70%), calcium phosphate, cystine, uric acid or struvite (stones that are derived from the formation of bacteria). The herbal formula will dissolve every type of crystal. There is no pain involved; they are gently dissolved, not flushed out. I have used my Pure Plant Kidney Cleanse herbal formulation successfully on patients, including an eleven-year-old boy, who had had two operations to remove kidney stones from his kidneys, which had not been successful.

Naturopathic Health Care: with Christine Vanden Bergh!

Concepts of internal cleansing and detoxification are integral to naturopathic philosophy and have a long history as the basis for treatment in many traditional systems of medicine & healing.

A substantial and growing body of research supports the significant impact on health of acute and chronic exposure to endogenous (internal) and exogenous (external) toxins. Exposure to xenobiotics (chemical substances that are foreign to the biological system) are becoming higher due to their rising levels in our food, water and environment.

The bio-accumulation of these compounds may potentially lead to a variety of metabolic and systemic dysfunctions. The systems most affected by xenobiotics are the immune, neurological, and endocrine systems.

Toxins that the body is unable to eliminate build up in the tissues, typically in the fat stores and bone. When this exposure is combined with increased endogenous load from faulty digestion, our "innate detoxification systems" become even more important.

Detoxification of harmful substances is a continual process in the body. The ability to detoxify and eliminate toxins largely determines an individual's health status. Studies show that the enzymes that control the various stages of detoxification may vary from person to person, and this may help to explain individual variations in tolerances to caffeine, alcohol and other chemical stressors.

Sluggish, imbalanced or impaired detoxification mechanisms can lead to the accumulation and deposition of metabolic toxins and increased free radical production resulting in reduced energy production. Once the detoxification system becomes overloaded, toxic metabolites accumulate and sensitivity to foods and other chemical compounds may become greater.

Naturopathic Health Care Treatment:
A detoxification program must be carried out by a qualified experienced naturopath who follows the exact sequence for the safe removal of toxins from the body:

1. Tonification of the adrenal and immune systems to enhance energy and vital force
2. Dietary specifics
3. Eliminate systemic/Gastrointestinal Tract (GIT) micro-organisms i.e. viruses, bacterial, candida and parasitic over-growth
4. Cleanse and repair GIT mucous membrane lining
5. Enhance the detoxification processes of the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system
6. Cleanse blood and skin

*Naturopathic toxicity assessment methods include: Live-blood assessment, bioimpedance assessment, acidity assessment & zinc taste test assessment.

Nutrition For Making Babies

Often I am asked about this particular topic, most recently by a new friend planning to conceive soon. I have many years of experience with dietary experimentation while pregnant, birthing and breastfeeding, some experiments less successful than others. Luckily I discovered the world of native nutrition during my 3rd pregnancy, and following the lead of my ancestors, I was able to turn around the health issues that had plagued me. I even improved my skin, hair, muscle definition and sexual desire (common complaints of breastfeeding women). (more…)

Short and Sweet: Stracciatella Roman Egg-drop Soup

By Jessica Prentice

Often in Spring we are craving simple foods. This meal helps you feel clean and light and it is quick to make.

" 2 cups or so chicken broth " a leaf or two of swiss chard, spinach or other leafy green " an egg " good parmesan cheese " sea salt or fish sauce " black pepper " nutmeg


Bring chicken broth to a boil in a small pan. Season with fish sauce or salt to taste. Chop chard leaf finely and add to boiling broth.

Grate parmesan on the finest grater you have (it's best to get it as close to 'powder' as possible) until you have about a tablespoon, or use pre-grated parmesan if you have that around. In a bowl, whisk the egg together with the parmesan cheese.

Beat the soup with the whisk while you pour in the egg mixture in a thin stream. The egg should cook immediately.

Pour the soup into the bowl, grind some black pepper on top, grate some nutmeg on top, and eat. Accompany with generously buttered good sourdough bread if you have it.
