Barley Water

For the kidney & bladder cleanse

Barley water is a traditionally acclaimed drink which will support and nourish the kidneys in times of stress. It is an integral part of a kidney cleansing programme, which will produce tremendous overall benefits. It also tastes delicious and is wonderfully cooling in the summer.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • ½ cup of whole pot barley
  • 5 cups of water
  • ¼ of a cinnamon stick
  • Grated ginger to your taste
  • Freshly squeezed juice of 1-2 lemons

How to make barley water

Place the whole barley, water, the cinnamon stick and some grated ginger into a pan and simmer for 20 minutes. If you have organic unwaxed lemons you can simmer the peel for the final 5 minutes which intensifies the taste.

After cooling, strain the mixture and finally add fresh lemon juice for extra flavour. Store in a cool place and drink between 1 and 3 cups daily, diluted to your taste if necessary.
