Our kidneys have one of the most important functions in our system – to get rid of waste and toxins through urinating. It is essential that we protect our kidneys, especially if we are prone to a condition known as kidney stones.
Kidney stones is a disorder where your kidneys don’t have enough power to filter the liquids that we ingest every day. The common age range for people to develop kidney stones is around 30 to 50 years.
For these reasons, we need to be really careful about what kind of beverages we consume on daily basis.
Kidney stones are actually crystals or calcium oxalates that are formed due to improper work of the kidneys. Sometimes they are formed in the bladder, but their name says it all – they are mainly formed in the kidneys.
They are made of uric acid, calcium salts or struvite. All of these elements contain magnesium.
How to know if you have kidney stones
The main symptoms of kidney stones are:
- Blood in urine
- Burning sensation while urinating
- Nausea and vomiting
- Pus or White blood cells in the urine
- Decreased amount of excreted urine
- Fever and chills due to an infection
- Strong pain in the groin or side
Lemon and Parsley Syrup for Kidney Stone
For the makings of this syrup, you will need:
- 1 lemon
- 1 large bunch parsley root
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup organic honey
Slice up the lemon and parsley root and mix them thoroughly. After that, add the rest of the ingredients and mix them again in the blender.
Make sure to seal the syrup in a jar and keep it in your refrigerator. It is recommended to consume 1 tablespoon of the syrup before your breakfast in the morning.
However, you will need to consume a lot of liquids such as tea, water, and natural fruit juices throughout the day for best results.
This syrup does its job because of the fact that parsley is a natural diuretic and the olive oil is actually a lubricant that can cleanse your urinary tract.
Additionally, you will gain a lot of advantages from the maple syrup and honey. Last but not least, the lemons will enhance your levels of urine acidity which will result in the melting of kidney stones.
