Daikon Radish Kidney Drink

This ancient Japanese remedy is used to treat the kidneys and kidney related problems such as swelling, skin ulcers, low back pain and blood pressure. The kidneys filter the blood–any support we can give them would be beneficial to the entire body.


  • 1 cup of water
  • ! cup of daikon radish juice

Squeeze juice from grated radish ( a juicer or blender may easily be used). Combine both ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil; remove and let cool to a palatable temperature.  Drink 6-8 ounces either first thing in the morning, last before bedtime or both.  Should be done a minimum 3-5 days for effectiveness.  It would be best to make your drink fresh every day.

NOTE: Cultures who eat radishes on a regular basis, rarely suffer from digestive problems
