Turmeric is another spice with amazing health properties. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and known to stop inflammation associated with chronic kidney disease. Turmeric appears to stop leaky gut, also associated with chronic inflammation.
Turmeric lowers blood pressure, the second leading cause of kidney disease. Since it also improves liver function, drinking turmeric tea is a terrific kidney cleanse. Add one teaspoon of ground turmeric to boiling water, simmer for 10 minutes. Add a bit of lemon juice and a pinch of black pepper.
