Kidneys are the Filtration system
The kidneys are one of the poison and waste filtration centers in our body. In some ways the kidneys are truly a waste water treatment plant right inside our bodies. Excessive uric acid and kidney stones can make the rest of our body react violently to malfunction in the kidneys. The main job of the kidneys is to filter all the liquids that we consume and send it to the digestive tract and bladder. The nutrients and minerals the kidneys separate out from the liquids are sent to nourish our body through the digestive tract. The poisons are sent through the urinary tract. When there are problems with the function of our kidneys, the natural way to help treat the problem is by drinking teas that will heal and flush at the same time. Here is a list of some of the teas that the Chinese have used for centuries to improve their health:
  • Meadowsweet
  • Sarsaparilla
  • Plantain leaf
  • Joe-Pye Weed
Here are some ways to strengthen your kidneys:
  • Eat foods that are full of fiber but have little protein, salt or calcium. This lessens your chances of developing kidney stones.
  • If you have a Urinary Tract Infection flush your system with water and cranberry juice. A diuretic tea made of dandelion or corn silk will also help unblock the urinary tract and the body to flush out the excess water from your system.
  • Regular exercise is another way you can strengthen your kidneys and keep waste products moving. This prevents the clumping that can happen to waste matter that forms kidney stones.
