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.
