Most people eat only the juicy flesh inside of the watermelon. However, watermelon rind is completely edible. Furthermore, watermelon rind is beneficial for your body in many ways. In fact, 95 percent of the nutrient value of a watermelon is in the rind!
I have long known that watermelon juice is beneficial for breaking down kidney stones. People have shared with me about how they drink jumbo glasses of watermelon juice daily to break down kidney stones that get eliminated more easily by urination.
I received this beautiful story from a reader that explains how he has successfully used watermelon rind juice to eliminate his kidney stones without any pain!
I suffered from 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 were 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.
