The pair of bean-shaped kidneys, each about the size of a fist, is vital organs in our body. They are located, one on each side of the spine, near the middle of our back, just below the rib cage. The kidneys perform many functions to keep our blood clean and chemically balanced.

Our body uses food for energy and maintenance. Wastes in the blood come from food that we consume and from the normal breakdown of active tissues, such as muscles. Every day, a person’s kidneys process about 200 quarts of blood and filter out about 2 quarts of waste products and removes excess water. The wastes and excess water flows to the bladder through two tubes called ureters as urine. The bladder stores urine until releasing it through urination.

A suggestion that consuming an infusion of Coriander leaves is a good remedy for kidney pain.

Here’s an amazing  green  juice  recipe  that’s made with fresh  coriander  leaves.  The juice of coriander  ( also known as  cilantro ) is beneficial in producing vitamin A, B1, B2., C and iron. It is also highly beneficial in treating digestive disorders such as indigestion, nausea, dysentery, hepatitis and colitis.

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), also called cilantro, kothamalli (in Tamil),  or dhania (in Hindi) is an annual herb in the family Apiaceae. In the English-speaking world (except for the U.S.) the leaves and seeds are known as coriander, in American culinary usage the leaves are generally referred to by the Spanish word cilantro.

A study found both the leaves and seed contain antioxidants, but the leaves were found to have a stronger effect. Hence, Coriander like many other spices, can delay or prevent spoilage of food seasoned with this spice. Chemicals derived from coriander leaves were found to have antibacterial activity against Salmonella choleraesuis, and this activity was found to be caused in part by these chemicals acting as nonionic surfactants.

Coriander seeds are used in traditional Indian medicine as a diuretic by boiling equal amounts of coriander seeds and cumin seeds, then cooling and consuming the resulting liquid.

This is the instruction to prepare the decoction.

1.     Take a bunch of Coriander / Kothumalli leaves.
2.     Wash it clean.
3.     Cut it in small pieces.
4.     Put it in a pot and pour clean water.
5.     Boil it for 10 minutes.
6.     Let it cool down.
7.     Filter it and pour it in a clean bottle.
8.     Keep it inside refrigerator to cool.
9.     Serve chilled by adding lime juice and salt
“Drink one glass of the liquid daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your system while passing urine. Also you will be able to notice that you feel healthier than before.”

Note: By the way, Coriander can produce an allergic reaction for some people.

Parsley (Cilantro) is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!

Regular drinking of coriander juice, lowers the blood cholesterol and is highly effective in kidney functioning.

Hope you'll forward this to all your loved ones..

The drink is simple to make all you need is a juicer, apples, carrots and beetroots. Juice them with their skins on and consume right after making it. Do not store. How many carrots, apples or beets you add to the juice is up to your own taste. You can either add more carrots or increase the quantity of apples. For best results, try to take them in equal quantities. You can even add lime juice to enhance its taste but do not add sugar.

Apples contain nutrients like Vitamin A, B1, B2, B6, C, E and K, Folate, Niacin, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, Calcium, Sodium and Manganese.

Foods to Improve Thyroid Health

Foods to Improve Thyroid Health

Are you feeling exhausted and stressed out? Having weight issues? Feeling depressed and losing hair? Is your heart beating faster and are you having problems with breathing? If your answer is yes then you need to see a doctor because you might be having a thyroid disease.

According to an article, “Today’s Dietitian”, 20 million Americans are suffering from this disease. The thyroid glands are found in the front of the neck and are responsible for producing hormones that regulates energy levels, metabolic rate, weight, digestive system and body temperature; it also affects muscles, bones, heart and cholesterol levels. The two major types of hormones produced are thyroxin and triiodothyronine (T3). There may be two conditions one is hyperthyroidism in which the production of these hormones increases. The other is Hypothyroidism which occurs due to the deficiency of hormones produced by the thyroid glands.
What can thyroid problems do to your health? It can cause serious problems of the heart and bone and may also cause thyroid storm that is yet again a very serious condition.
Although synthetic medications for treating thyroid disease are available, but adding and subtracting a few things from your diet can reduce the risks of developing the disease. In both the cases, Hyper and Hypothyroidism careful selection of foods should be made. Here we would tell you what to eat and what not to eat if you are having thyroid disease.

The most important thing to be learned is, what are goitrogens? They are natural substances found in most of the foods and have the ability to enlarge the size of the thyroid glands also called goiter. Now in hyperthyroidism conditions the goitrogens act as anti-thyroid drugs and slows down the excess production of the hormones and ultimately cause hypothyroidism.
So goitrogen foods should be taken in huge quantities by patients having hyperthyroidism conditions and should be avoided by those having hypothyroidism symptoms. The common sources of goitrogens are broccoli, kale, spinach, turnip cauliflower, cabbage, strawberry, peaches, peanuts, pine nuts, soy and mustard. These goitrogen foods work more effectively if taken in raw form.

Coconut Oil
Oils that are being commercially produced have a negative effect on the thyroid. The unsaturated fats contained in these oils slow down the tissue response to the hormones produced by thyroid. For cooking meals choose coconut oil as it helps to regulate metabolic rate of the body. It helps the thyroid gland to perform better. 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil daily can give good results if swallowed or used in cooking or salads.

Iodized Salt
For the proper functioning of the thyroid glands iodine is required. Approximately one- fourth of the U.S. population is iodine deficient. Iodized salt can be substituted with the regular table or sea salt to prevent this deficiency.

High Fiber Foods
In most cases the patients having thyroid disease develop constipation and their body weight may also increase, in such cases foods that are rich in fiber can prove to be beneficial.
You may find high fiber in vegetables, fruits and cereals. The high fiber vegetables are eggplant, beans, cabbage, carrot, mushrooms, potatoes with skin, peas, spinach, broccoli, cabbage and pumpkin. Fruits with high fiber are apples, dates, bananas, berries, orange, pear, guava and prunes. Other available high fiber sources are bran cereals and breads, beans, lentils and nuts like almonds, peanuts, cashew nuts and walnuts.

Soy plays two roles; it acts as a goitrogen and also inhibits the absorption of thyroid hormones. It is suggested not to over consume soy especially in the processed forms like soy milk, soy bars, powders and shakes.
It is better to consult a nutritional practitioner before adding more soy to your diet, if you are having hyperthyroidism problems.

Coffee and Calcium Fortified Orange Juice
It is highly recommended not to take orange juice that is calcium fortified and coffee with thyroid medications. The reason is that they interfere with the absorption of medicines taken in thyroid conditions. In case you feel the urge to drink a glass or so, wait for at least 3 to 4 hours after taking the medicines. Same is the case with calcium and iron supplements.

In any case it is highly suggested that you consult your doctor before adding any of these foods to your diet. The thyroid disease may not be completely cured by taking or avoiding these foods but can be reduced to some extent.
