Sakinah sent me an email inquiring the kidney strengthening food.
First, let’s look at the kidney weakening food: all refined foods, including salt, sugar and soft drinks, which deplete minerals from our body system.
Second, avoid coffee, alcohol and chemicals in food. It simply means taking light cooked and steam food where possible.
Third, take mineral rich, whole foods diet. These are the grains.
Fourth, kidney-strengthening foods include all beans, seaweed, root vegetables and melons. Dark-colored foods energetically support the kidneys and these include wild rice, black beans or black currants.
Fifth, in addition to diet, regular weight-bearing exercises, such as walking, strengthens the kidneys.
Sixth, standing for long periods of time weakens the kidneys, as does too much sitting or lying down.
Seventh, it's important to keep the lower back area, over the kidneys, warm and protected from the cold.
Finally, to strengthen our kidneys, tell them every morning that we love them and care for them.
