Kidney Nourishing Juices and Foods

Kidney Nourishing Juices and Foods

I just had a foot zonology appointment this week. Zonology is a technique that utilizes the signal system in our feet to rejuvenate, balance, restore, and detoxify the entire body while assisting in the natural healing process. I was surprised to learn during that session that my kidneys aren’t being nourished well resulting in poor blood flow in and out of the kidneys. Strong, well-nourished kidneys are needed to support good blood flow through them.

Symptoms of Kidney Insufficiency

Dry skin, dry eyes, dark circles under the eyes, vaginal dryness for women, scanty urine, a pale face with flushed red cheeks, a red peeled tongue, a rapid pulse, fatigue, irritability, afternoon heat, night sweats, and hot flashes. Emotional or mental signs might be agitation or even panic attacks, feeling tired but wired, a sense of floating, or of being drained.

For me, symptoms were only a few with the primary one — a feeling of being drained. I thought it was due to all the stress of late. This was encouraging in one sense that there is something I could do to change things.   I thought I’d share this information with you, because you may have some of these symptoms too and need to nourish your kidneys.
