Natural kidney cleanse

We all know how vitally important the kidneys are to our body. These two organs, located on the right and left sides of our body, are responsible for the unenviable task of cleaning the waste from our blood streams. This waste is the byproduct of the breakdown of protein, which the body needs in order to build muscle and maintain energy. The kidneys are very important because, without them, waste products would remain in the body. Further, lacking good working kidneys can be a disaster, because it means that people have to go on something called dialysis. In this process, people without functioning kidneys (or with very low functioning kidneys) are hooked up to a machine and the waste from their body is manually cleansed. This is a long lasting, invasive and uncomfortable procedure and one that few people want to have to face.

So how do we make sure that our kidneys enjoy a long, healthy functioning life? We make sure that we take care of them by eating healthy foods and, now and then, performing something called a natural kidney cleanse. A natural kidney cleanse, using herbs, helps heal any problems with the urinary tract, increase the healthy flow of urine, helps remove all waste products completely and thoroughly, and provides some natural kidney cleansing effects to the body. According to some natural kidney cleanse products, a natural kidney cleanse can also help the kidneys rid the body of urea, a waste product.

The kidneys are also important for several other functions, including regulating the amounts of certain products in the blood – including ions, blood pH, and blood volume. Aside from removing protein byproducts, the kidneys also remove other wastes from the blood and secret an enzyme known as renin. Renin is vital when it comes to regulating blood pressure. So all in all, the kidneys are two very important organs, and ones that you want to keep healthy with a periodic natural kidney cleanse.

For as long as time, man (and woman) have been using herbal diuretics as a natural kidney cleanse. This is because kidney-related diseases, including urinary tract infections, kidney stones, high blood pressure, fluid retention, and cysts, can all be extremely painful and uncomfortable. Herbal diuretic natural kidney cleanses work quickly and gently by ridding the kidneys of fluid and then reabsorbing it. If you feel that a herbal diuretic is the right natural kidney cleanse for you, you may feel the effects more strongly if you suffer from one of the above named conditions. Nevertheless, natural kidney cleanses involving diuretics should be gentle and easy on the system. They will simply make you pass more urine during the cleaning process.

Other herbs have beneficial effects on the kidneys. For example, couch grass helps sooth an irritated urinary tract and heal urinary tract infection (UTI) with its antibiotic effects. It can also help with cystitis, prostatitis, and kidney stones, among other kidney ailments. Uva Ursi (also known by its quaint name of Bearberry) helps ride the kidney of contaminants such as e. coli, staphylococcus and other harmful invaders. It can take effect as soon as 3 to 4 hours of ingestion of the herb and is a wonderful natural kidney cleanse. Another natural kidney cleanse involves the herb horsetail. This herb has been found to clean the urinary tract all the while reducing the level of lead in the body.

If you feel that you are experiencing problems with your kidneys, contact your primary care physician. He or she can help you determine whether it is time for a natural kidney cleanse or another, medical remedy for your problem.
