Watermelon seed tea is a diuretic recommended in the Cayce readings, particularly as a stimulant to cleanse and purify the kidneys and bladder. INDICATIONS AND USAGE
Watermelon seed tea was specifically recommended by Edgar Cayce for kidney stones. It was also suggested to simulate
under-active kidneys. CONTRA-INDICATIONS
No known contra-indications. DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Cayce Quote On Remedy 1695-2
But at least once a day, three days a week, do take watermelon seed tea as a part of the water. This would be prepared by pouring a pint of boiling water over a tablespoonful of watermelon seed (ground or cut) and allowing it to steep. Let it cool, then strain and drink. This will clarify those conditions that cause reactions in the kidneys and bladder, for, the lack of eliminations and the slowing up of the circulation causes a greater quantity of drosses to be held in the system, and these need to be eliminated from the body.
More will be eliminated through using this stimuli for the kidney activity than in most any way.
Juice Watermelons and fresh Parsley for the Kidneys
Juice watermelons with seeds and juice the whole thing including the rind.
Juice fresh parsley for its intense kidney cleansing and healing properties.
One particular kidney cleanse, the Watermelon Cleanse, maintains strong claims to rid the excruciatingly painful kidney stone in a day!
"Watermelon juice, watermelon itself and watermelon seeds are all diuretic and disinfecting [Dr. Schultz]."
Juice the whole watermelon including the seeds and rind. Watermelon rind has minerals and the seed is commonly known to be cleansing to the kidneys. Of course you don't have to sit in a bathtub and
urinate in it to cleanse with watermelons, but I understand the torture of passing kidney stones feels like "peeing a combination of broken glass and boiling acid." and that if one has kidney stones one just might sit in the tub and
urinate all day long.
Other ideas might be to juice fast on watermelon and parsley for the day. The "urinating fire" definitely provokes my interest in the Watermelon Kidney Cleanse.
Watermelon Cleanse NOT FOR DIABETICS !
The easiest way to cleanse Kidney is to purchase 20 - 100 kg of watermelon
(a few huge melons), sit in a bath filled with water, eat all the watermelon throughout
the day (as much as you can), while continually empting your urinary bladder into the water.
In this way, people have dissolved big stones, and then passed small kidney stones (sand) out of their body.
The watermelon flush for the kidneys.
If you need it, you will be urinating fire [Dr. Schultz]

Celery seeds have a direct action on the kidneys, increasing the elimination of water and speeding up the clearance of accumulated toxins from the joints.
Celery seeds are very helpful for people suffering from an over supply of uric acid. Celery has large amounts of potassium and organic sodium that help to rid the body of waste material by stimulating various sites such as the skin, bowels and kidneys. It re-balances the acid/alkaline in the system and may help prevent certain cancers.
Celery is a biennial plant indigenous to southern Europe, Asia, and Africa. It is also found in North and South America. Celery grows in damp places and resembles domestic celery, except that it has a less agreeable taste and is smaller in size. In its second year the plant produces an angular furrowed stem reaching three feet in height. It bears dark green leaves that are opposite, shiny, and primate, having
incised, wedge-shaped, toothed leaflets.
