Frequent urination? Frequent UTIs? Water retention? High creatinine levels? High blood pressure? Renal failure?
Infection, high urea, high creatinine levels, swelling and/or high blood pressure results from congestion, inflammation and/or depletion of the kidneys.
Rejuvenating the kidney is essential for optimum health!
Kidney Problems Can Be Unnoticeable
A person can have damaged blood vesicles or congestion with blockage in the kidneys without realizing it. As layer upon layer are formed, kidney stones get larger and larger until they finally produce symptoms. People who are especially at risk are those who take antibiotics for UTI's since antibiotics simply kill bacteria, but do not remove their old residues and mucous strands on which kidney stones form.
Herbal treatments fight infection and clear out congestion to avoid kidney stone accumulation and kidney disease.
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)- The Silent Killer
People suffering from diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and those who are older than 60 years old are more prone to this kidney disease. Most will have chronic kidney disease for years without realizing it as the early signs can be very subtle and it can take many years to go from chronic kidney disease (CKD) to kidney failure.
Herbal treatments not only help avoid kidney failure later in life but improve cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure and even help stabilize blood sugar levels. A herbal kidney cleanse is recommend to most individuals with high blood pressure as part of the treatment protocol.
Poor Circulation Leads to Urinary Tract Toxicity
Many people suffer from poor circulation. When the circulation is poor, usually the more delicate and fine arteries that run through the kidneys are affected first. When circulation to the kidneys decreases, the rate of toxic buildup in the kidneys increases. This in turn eventually leads to kidney stones.
Medications Cause Silent Damage
Many medications cause undetectable damage to the kidneys. This includes antibiotics. Over time, these medications can build up and leave toxic accumulations in the urinary tract, and especially in the kidneys. Other medications that commonly cause damage to the kidneys are given for arthritis pain, headaches, and for other types of inflammation. (This is a well-known side effect of taking anti inflammatory medication on a regular basis).
Note: Based on my research long-term use of high doses of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) -prescription painkillers, that contain ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®), naproxen (Aleve®), or acetaminophen (Tylenol®), has a harmful effect on kidney tissue and structures, causing shrinkage of blood vessels in the kidneys. Diuretics (urine enhancers) medications may also cause excessive water loss, straining the kidneys.
Additionally, processed foods contain genetically modified ingredients to increase plant's pest resistance, immunity to herbicides, or improve crop yields. Studies have shown that these foods create a state of hepatorenal (liver and kidney) toxicity.
Toxicity, congestion or dryness in the kidneys and bladder or the supporting pathways can cause one or any combination of the following symptoms:*
|Frequent UTI's||High blood pressure||Gouty arthritis|
|Rheumatoid arthritis||Bladder stones||Kidney stones|
|Kidney tumor(s)||Cyst on kidney||Frequent nighttime urination|
|Low back pain (sometimes)||Difficulty starting urine stream||Kidney failure
|Incontinence/bedwetting||Decreased force of urine stream||Urge to urinate more frequently|
|Foul odor to urine||Dark urine||Blood in urine|
|Pain when urinating||Bladder pain||Inability to urinate|
|Can only urinate small amount of urine||Having to get up at night to urinate||Leaking urine when laughing coughing or sneezing|
|Reddish, pinkish or brownish color to urine||Have to strain to eliminate urine||Urine stream stops in the middle of urinating|
|Taking most types of antibiotics (past or current)||Kidney damage from medications (past or current)||Heavy metal poisoning|
|Bladder polyps||"Bags" under the eyes||Problems with water retention|
Many degenerative conditions are also the direct result of a body chemistry that is too acidic. Since the kidneys are responsible for regulating the acid-base balance, any problems with kidney function can cause many diseases associated with an overly acidic body chemistry. These include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer of all types, artery disease, skin diseases, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis and heart disease.*
About Kidney stones
Different stones in the body have different chemical make-ups. For example, gallstones are primarily formed from cholesterol, bile salts, and proteins. Pancreatic stones are formed from fatty acids, calcium, and proteins. And kidney stones themselves vary significantly. There are four types:
- Calcium stones are composed of calcium that is chemically bound to oxalate (calcium oxalate) or phosphate (calcium phosphate).
- If the acid level in the urine is high or too much acid is excreted, the uric acid may not dissolve and uric acid stones may form.
- Infection stones develop when a urinary tract infection alters the chemical balance of the urine causing stones to form from ammonium, magnesium, phosphate.
- In rare cases, there is a condition that results in large amounts of cystine in the urine, which causes the formation of cystine stones.
A Natural Kidney/Bladder Cleansing Program
A 7-day individualized herbal protocol with support.
*This program can be provided privately in Ojai or remotely by phone/Skype with herbal remedies mailed to you.*
The program consists of herbal formulas designed to cleanse away accumulated waste products, toxins and residues in order to restore healthy kidney and urinary tract function. The program can be extended for those with failing kidneys or rotated with the Liver/Gallbladder Program for best results.
How It Works:
Ayurvedic herbal formulas and teas are provided which are taken throughout the day to dissolve stones and congestion, reduce excess mucous or resolve dryness, and fight infection. As needed, these herbal products together will provide the following actions:
- Stimulating to renal tissue
- Soothing to urinary tract tissue
- Antiseptic (infection killing)
- Diuretic (water removing)
- Anti-lithic (stone breaking, if needed)
In a case of kidney stones or kidney disease a "short short-term fast with a suitable diuretic herbal tea can effectively remove infection, calcification, uric acid and congestion as well as strengthen kidney function. Note: Diuretic herbs can be stimulating, hyragogue (raising blood pressure such as coffee) and refrigerant (washes out the kidneys). After the treatment rejuvenating tonic herbs (those that regenerate cells and tissue) with affinity to the urinary system are provided to allow the kidneys to recover and strengthen.
In the case of kidney failure, specific Ayurvedic herbs and recovery protocol can be provided but results are varied and depend on the individual.
Dietary guidelines are also provided to support healthy kidney and bladder function based on your dosha (Ayurvedic body-type) and type of kidney stones if present.
Typical herbal products provided:
|Ayurvedic Kidney stone formula - 4 oz||
Kidney / Bladder Tea - 2 oz
|Rencure Formula 2 Bottles (Total 60 Capsules)
Mutrakrichantak Churna 1 Pack (200 Grams)
Punarnava Mandur - 2 Bottles
|An Ayurvedic herbal formula known to dissolve kidney stones and improve kidney function. Taken once per day after dinner.||
