Diet tips for Kidney cysts

  • Drink herbal teas such as Dandelion Leaf and Green Tea as they support the function of the kidneys filtration and are also gentle diuretics
  • The best advice to support the role of the kidneys is to ensure adequate fluid intake, at least 2 litres of water/ day.  There is a saying which goes “the solution to pollution is dilution” which explains the role the kidneys place in removal of wastes from the body
  • Reduce diuretics in the diet such as sugar, tea, alcohol, coffee and carbonated drinks. These place an extra burden on the kidneys filtration and can cause the body to lose more water and disrupt the sodium and potassium balance.  Reduce alcohol intake as alcohol can dramatically reduce kidney function by causing a diuretic action which leads to dehydration and places a burden on the kidneys to remove the waste aldehyde from the system
  • An alkaline diet rather than an acidic diet cleanses and tones the kidneys.  An alkaline diet involves eating foods such fresh vegetables and fruits, lemon juice, water, brown rice, miso soup and vegetable juices. An acidic diet is foods like sugar, wheat, dairy, red meat, oranges, alcohol, preserved and processed foods
  • Have a vegetable juice each day to encourage liver detoxification and kidney filtration.  Some ideas are fresh juiced beetroot, carrot, celery and ginger or watermelon or pineapple, green apple and mint
  • Reduce foods such as sugar, tea, coffee, alcohol, soft drinks and table salt (an alternative for this is Celtic Sea Salt) as these tend to hold onto fluid in the body
  • Decrease sodium (table salt) consumption in your diet and replace with sea salt or vegetable salt.  Sodium is important for the health of the kidneys but not in excessive amounts.  Sea salt is rich in many minerals without being refined and does not contain aluminium (used in table salt to keep the salt dry)
  • Vegetable broths are very nutrient rich for the health of the kidneys as well as alkalising excess acidity levels to help take the burden off the kidneys filtration system.  You can make a broth by boiling kidney beans and a mix of vegetables such as onions, celery, carrot, beetroot, spinach, sea salt, wakame (sea vegetables/ seaweed) and drinking a cup of the broth daily.  This recipe is also very rich in minerals which again will help to fortify and nourish the kidneys
  • Caffeine, simple sugars and sugar alternatives (sorbitol) irritate the kidneys
  • Heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, mercury and aluminium dramatically reduce kidney function.
