As we are digging deeper to our own detox and also started to study with Dr Morse to become Detoxification Specialists, we are learning more and more about the process. This is a little bit about our current kidney detox protocol.
As we go along we are both discovering areas that are in need of deeper work and also practical knowledge with the do’s and don’ts in the process. One of the most important aspects with detoxification is to make sure that your kidneys are working properly and that they are filtering out the residues from your body. If we work on detoxifying our bodies and putting a lot of work into healing ourselves without the kidneys working properly we are not only backing up our lymphatic system but also putting a lot of extra pressure on the kidneys, that are already struggling from not working properly.
The lymphatic system acts as our septic system. It provides not only protection for cells, but serves to remove wastes as well. Cells eat and excrete like you do, only on a much smaller scale. The blood carries the nutrition and fuels to the cells, and your lymph system removes the by-products and wastes caused from metabolizing these nutrients and fuels.
Kidneys and bladder is our eliminative and urinary tract system. These organs are vital in your body’s elimination process. Without proper elimination of metabolic wastes, both cellular and digestive, toxic by-products will cause auto-intoxication of cells. This causes cellular weakness and death of cells. This is why we need to first make sure that our kidneys are filtering properly before we start to work deep in the detoxification process and start pulling existing toxins from or system.
Traditional Chinese Medicine Approach
The Taoist sages of ancient China observed that humans often develop energy blockages in their internal organs. The negative emotions of fear, anxiety, depression, and worry cause the most damage. Problems can also be caused by overwork, stress, accidents, surgery, drugs, toxins, poor food and bad posture.
When obstructed the internal organs store unhealthy energies that can overflow into other bodily systems and surface as negative emotions and sickness. Always in search of an outlet, these negative emotions and toxic energies create a perpetual cycle of negativity and stress. If the negative emotions can’t find an outlet, they fester in the organs or move on to the abdomen, the body’s “garbage dump”. The abdomen can process some emotional garbage, but more often it can’t keep up with the flow.
To the Chinese, the kidneys are sometimes called the roots of life. They are very important in determining the level of vitality and length of life. All sexual energy comes from the kidneys and any sexual or reproductive dysfunction can be traced to the kidneys. Often, they control pain in the lower back. This theory is also shared with the studies of Dr Morse, who claim that all lower back pain comes from acidosis and weak kidneys.
These examples are only a few that is acknowledged in the holistic sphere of working on the kidneys. As we are deep diving into our health and bridging the western science with the eastern philosophies there is so much to do and many approaches to healing. What we are focusing on now is going deeper into the detoxification process and interlinking it with our spiritual and energetic work, through TCM among other things. Fear is the emotion associated with the Kidney. If you often have severe panic attacks, anxiety, and fear, your body may be trying to tell you that kidney energy is running low or is imbalanced.
The following side effects are some warning signals that body experience when the kidney and bladder become weak: Bags under your eyes, Vision problems, Lower back weakness and pain, Kidney stones, Urinary Tract Infections, Incontinence, Difficulty urinating, Dehydration, Headaches.
Kidney Detoxification Protocol
Together with the diet and the detox protocol we are also working on detoxing the emotions stored in the organs and the abdomen, and the fear emotion especially. This we do through a massage technique called Chi Nei-Tsang. We have both recently done education training of Chi Nei-Tsang and you can read our article on the technique here.
Within our detox process we are going all raw fruit at this point, together with herbal tinctures and formulas to strengthen the kidneys and other organs. Diet is key in this process and together with the formulas we are experiencing some deep changes and detox symptoms. The fruits we are eating are watermelon, mango, pineapple, dragon fruit, passion fruit and bananas. We are also incorporating a lot of lemon, ginger, turmeric and different herbs in the form of tea and juice.
Formulas we are currently using
Dr Morse Kidney & Bladder Tincture #2
Dr Morse Kidney & Bladder Capsules #1
Dr Morse Thyroid & Thymus Tincture
Dr Morse Heal All Tea
Dr Morse Gi Broom
I will also use a Kidney Glandular after I finish with the Kidney & Bladder Tincture and Capsules.
This is a short a very informative movie about how to check if your kidneys are filtering and how to get them filtering if they are not. I absolutely love this movie summary as it goes straight for the punch. You can watch it here.
