WATERMELON RIND BREAKS DOWN KIDNEY STONES AND REDUCES INFLAMMATION
Many people eat the juicy part of watermelon, but scrap the rind. Believe it or not, the rind of watermelon has the most nutritional content, about 95 percent.
Its been no secret that watermelon juice can eliminate and break down kidney stones. There have been many readers who write to me saying how they consume watermelon juice frequently to rid themselves easily of the stones. One story from a reader was actually interesting and he explains how watermelon juice worked to rid his kidneys of stones without pain.
Watermelon Juice Breaks Down Kidney Stones
A reader explained how he was suffering from chronic pain due to his kidney stones. He knew that his pain came from kidney stones, as he has had them before. He looked toward modern medicine and found no relief, as pieces of the stone were stuck in his urethra, causing excruciating pain.
When he did his research and found that the rind of watermelon could easily break down kidney stones, he rushed to drink some. He had his wife get an organic watermelon and had it juiced. One watermelon made him a gallon of the juice. Over a period of 12 hours, he started to urinate more and the pain stopped.
Watermelon Juice Reduces Inflammation
Another reader explained his story about his experience with chronic pain. He said, “I suffered with severe left-side back pain for several months. Thinking it was another kidney stone and after reading that watermelon RIND juice was good for kidney stones, I sectioned a watermelon, removed the pink flesh, peeled the dark green exterior of the melon, juiced the white rind with a low rpm juicer and drank it down.
It wasn’t as tasty as juice from the melon’s red flesh but it wasn’t bad at all. Actually it was quite refreshing.
The next morning I had ZERO pain.
This happened several times until I finally went to my urologist who, after dousing my body with radiation, informed me I had NO kidney stone. THEN I went to my chiropractor who, after showing her where the pain was, put her finger on the exact vertebrae that was causing the ‘referred’ pain.
After just one adjustment and one simple acupuncture treatment, I walked out without any problem whereas, when I first arrived, I could barely walk and had difficulty driving to her office.
Watermelon rind juice is now in my “food medicine cabinet”. I want to share this with everyone who’s experiencing pain and wants to avoid toxic chemical analgesics which come with possible dangerous side effects.”
