CKD: Chronic Kidney Disease

Q What are the best fruit and vegetable combinations for improving kidney function?

A I need to make it clear I’m not a medical professional and can’t make recommendations for treating diseases, but if I had kidney issues I think I would juice a variety of fruits and vegetables, particularly those listed below.




Watermelon (rind and all)

Whole lemon





Leafy greens

Cruciferous vegetables

Juicing and eating a plant centered diet, while avoiding animal products is advice I have often heard from health care professionals. Appropriate exercise and plenty of fresh air are good for the blood and what’s good for the blood is good for the kidneys.

If you’re not familiar with the work of Dr Gabrial Cousens of The Tree of Life Healing Center and Dr Brian Clement, from Hippocrates Health Institute you may want to look at the DVD and accompanying book, Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

All the best to you on your journey to greater health.
