CHRONIC KIDNEY WEAKNESS
Indications


Copious, pale urine
Frequent lower back pain
Weak knees and ankles
Brittle bones
Spinal misalignment

Our Suggestion
(In bold would be our first choice)


KB-C is a Chinese formula that corrects this deficiency of water energy. It strengthens the organs associated with water in the body, the kidneys and bladder. In addition it also strengthens the bones. In Chinese medicine, the kidneys help “build the bones.”
Although this may seem like a strange concept to Western minds, the kidneys also regulate the balance of mineral electrolytes and flush acid waste to help maintain pH balance, which maintains the health of the structural system.
Acid pH contributes to a loss of bone density.

 


and/or Horsetail

Horsetail

Horsetail is a diuretic and astringent that has been used to help control incontinence including bed wetting - it both strengthens the bladder and eliminates water.
It is a good "spring cleaning" detoxification herb.
There is evidence that horsetail builds the immune and nervous systems. It is recommended for urinary tract infections. Horsetail contains a very high amount of silicon (and high calcium) in a bioavailable form. This makes it a very popular in formulas to build and provide elasticity to bones, hair, skin, nails and teeth.

Scant, dark urine
Burning urination
Hot feeling over kidneys
Puffiness / darkness under eyes
Urination produces standing foam

and/or Marshmallow

Marshmallow

Healing, soothing soft tissue repair herb.

Marshmallow root is a classic cooling and wetting herb for conditions that are hot and dry.
It has been used since ancient Greece for bronchitis, whooping cough, dysentery, cystitis, incontinence, etc.
Other internal uses include inflammatory stomach and bowel problems, lung irritations, urinary tract infections, swollen joints--and it even increases and enriches mother's milk.

Like slippery elm, it will absorb poisons and reduce inflammation including ulcerations and wounds that won't heal.



URINARY INFECTION
Indications

Diagnosis of urinary infection
Prevention of urinary infection
See also UTI

Our Suggestion



Intended for urinary tract infections.
Cranberry contains a substance that reduces the ability of bacteria to cling to the lining of the urinary tract.
This may reduce the tendency to develop urinary tract infections.
Cranberry also controls the odor of urine from incontinent individuals. It retards the degradation of urine by Escherichia coli bacteria to produce ammonia odors.
Buchu is one of the most nourishing herbs for the urinary tract and is slightly diuretic. It also has tonic, astringent and antiseptic properties that may contribute to reducing urinary tract infections and inflammation.
Buchu has also been used for the prostate and pancreas; it may be useful for early stages of diabetes.
Contains cranberry juice concentrate, buchu concentrate reduced to powder before capsulation.

 

Powerful natural antibiotic team
An important infection fighting immune system stimulant.
Golden Seal has been used as a substitute for quinine with no after-effects.
Echinacca is also a natural antibiotic that helps with both viral and bacterial infections. It stimulates the body to build blood cells and antibodies and helps the body to cleanse and strengthen itself.
Contains echinacea purpurea and echinacea angustifolia combination with an equal amount of golden seal root in a glycerin base.
NSP uses the roots because these contain the greatest concentrations of the beneficial components.
Both species are used because of their different but complementary ways of stimulating the immune system.


Homeopathic Support

Adults 5 drops orally, 3 to 5 times daily or as otherwise directed.
If symptoms persist for more than 7 days consult a healthcare professional.
Consult a physician for use in children under 12 years of age.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

The kidneys, located near the lower ribs on either side of the spine, look like two bean-shaped organs that regulate the fluid in your body. They also excrete too much acid or alkaline elements and clear the blood of toxins. About 2.5 pints of water are excreted as urine every day. Urine is about 96% water.

The kidneys cannot do their job without a sufficient amount of water, so remember to drink enough water. About 2.4 million nephrons inside the kidneys filter the blood. They help to regulate the sodium/potassium ratio, vital for energy production, etc.
All in all, about 300 pints of water are filtered each day.




With such a big job to do, certain nutritional elements are important to keep them healthy so you don't experience the various kinds of pain produced by discontented kidneys such as bladder infections, kidney stones, or pain in the lower back.

The kidneys can be poisoned, clogged, malnourished, ruptured by blows, and overworked until they begin to break down. Blood in the urine is a sign, or could be an infection of the filtering tubules. The urinary system is a complex and intricate system consisting of the kidneys, urethra, bladder and ureters. A well-functioning urinary system is essential for good health. Although we tend to equate the urinary system simply with elimination, it is actually an amazingly complex filtering system that minute-by-minute determines what to excrete and what to retain in the body. In fact, over 95 percent of the water and most of the nutrients we take in, are reabsorbed.

The kidneys purify 45 gallons of blood every day. Considering that you have 7 to 8 liters of blood in your body, this means that your entire blood volume gets filtered approximately 20 to 25 times each day!

Our kidneys produce enzymes and hormones which interact with other compounds and help us maintain our blood pressure. They regulate the proper fluid balance in our bodies and help maintain the proper acid and alkali balance. Kidney failure is a life threatening situation. If the kidneys cannot filter toxins from the blood and move them out of the body, these waste toxins accumulate in the blood and contaminate the entire system.


10 possible signs you may have kidney disease


More than 26 million American adults are living with kidney disease and most don’t know it.

Kidney failure is a life threatening situation. If the kidneys cannot filter toxins from the blood and move them out of the body, these waste toxins accumulate in the blood and contaminate the entire system.

According to the National Kidney Foundation...
If you’re at risk for kidney disease due to high blood pressure, diabetes, a family history of kidney failure or if you’re older than age 60, it’s important to get tested annually for kidney disease. Be sure to mention any symptoms you’re experiencing to your healthcare practitioner.
