The Body's Waterworks
The kidneys are constantly
working. A consistent drip occurs day in and day out, all day and all night
( three to four times more by day than by night ) from the kidneys into the
bladder. he kidneys are the chief organs for cleansing the body's internal
fluid. They comprise our filtering system, and they absorb and excrete
toxins. If the filters are plugged up, it may cause infections, and when the
kidneys lose their ability to filter toxins and the blood, they can become
diseased and cause loss of protein in the blood, which is, in turn, lost in
the urine. Weak kidneys will also lose essential nutrients such as
potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Kidney disease causes toxins to
remain in the blood and poison the tissues. Kidney failure can cause high
blood pressure, stroke, heart attack or glaucoma.
The kidneys' job is to maintain a constant and healthy internal
environment in the body. They adjust the body's electrolyte balance. They
manufacture hormones that regulate blood pressure, calcium metabolism and
red blood cell production. The kidneys are very efficient. they eliminate
whatever is bad for the body and brain and any excess of the good. If you go
on a candy spree, sugar rises in the blood, reaches a concentration too high
for safety, and the kidneys have the job of throwing out the excess.
The kidneys try to maintain the health of the body, but when pain,
pallor, swelling, high blood pressure, blood in the urine, burning and
stinging occur, you know your kidneys are in trouble.
Toxins can accumulate in the blood and cause kidney damage. Alcohol,
drugs and smoking, as well as exposure to heavy metals such as cadmium, lead
and mercury, can cause damage to the kidneys. These can accumulate and cause
harm. Drinking water and air pollution contain metals. Smokers have higher
incidences of kidney failure than nonsmokers.
About 12 million Americans experience urinary incontinence, and it
affects all ages, not just the elderly. There are many diseases, as well as
pregnancy, infections, surgery, and obesity, that can cause this condition.
Kidney stones are common and about 90 percent are caused by calcium
deposits. The concentration of calcium can be eliminated without surgery.
Distilled water, herbal calcium products, and formula to heal and strengthen
the kidneys are helpful.
