If Your Kidneys Are In Danger, The Body Will Give You These Signs

asian-woman-scratching-elbow

 

The kidneys are two of the smallest organs in the body, yet they perform one of the biggest physiological jobs: removing waste products and excess fluid from the body. They are located on either side of the spine at the lowest level of the ribcage. Each kidney contains a million functioning units called nephrons, which are in charge of filtering the blood, according to the body’s needs.

 

Healthy kidney function highly depends on what we eat, how much exercise we get, and what our daily habits are. However, one of the key factors in maintaining kidney health is recognizing the signs of ill-functioning kidneys.

 

Changes in Urine: This is one of the first signs that your kidneys may be in danger. Because kidneys are in charge of removing and filtering waste products that result in urine, paying attention to your pee is important.

  • Pressure while urinating
  • Foam in your urine
  • Bloody urine
  • Dark urine followed by less frequent urination in small amounts
  • Pale urine followed by frequent urination in large amounts

 

Excessive Swelling: When the kidneys start to become overwhelmed, they fail to remove the extra fluid that is meant to be flushed from the body. This fluid then builds up, causing swelling in the legs, ankles, face, feet and/or hands.

 

Extreme Fatigue: The kidneys produce a hormone called erythropoietin, which aids in the production of red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout the body. When your kidneys are malfunctioning, red blood cell production decreases, making it harder for other cells to obtain oxygen. This causes you to experience overall weakness and extreme fatigue.

 

Shortness of Breath: Being short of breath can be related to the kidneys in two ways. First, the shortage of oxygen-carrying red blood cells can leave your body without enough capacity to breathe. Second, when malfunctioning kidneys worsen, the extra fluid in the body can build up in the lungs, causing shortness of breath after very little exertion.

 

Metallic Taste in the Mouth (Ammonia Breath): Sometimes the body can become so overloaded with toxins that you can literally taste them. Kidney failure increases the level of urea in the blood. This urea is broken down to ammonia in the saliva, causing urine-like bad breath, also called ammonia breath. This is typically associated with an unpleasant metallic taste in the mouth.

 

Back Pain: Albeit being one of the most common signs of kidney disease, back pain tends to be mistaken for other less harmful circumstances. However, kidney pain is more specifically felt in the area on either side of the spine between the bottom of your ribcage and your hips. It is usually sharp if you have a kidney stone, and a dull ache if you have an infection.

 

Always keep in mind that listening to your body and tending to its needs is one of the most effective ways to stay healthy.

    Q: My dad was diagnose with a kidney disease called Membranous Glomerulopathy. Is there anything he can take to help jump start his kidneys? He is taken Crestor for Cholestoral, ACTOS for diabetes, Diovian for blood pressure and Metroponol for beta blocker.

    A:

    I'd highly recommend that he performs the Full Body Detox, in the future he should perform our 10-Day Supreme Kidney Cleanse(coming soon). He can drink our Kidney's Tea during all of these cleanses (about 1-3 cups per day). He needs to change his diet as well too. There's much dietary information on our website that should be read.

    Q: There seems to be a cure or a treatment for everything but kidney disease and trust me I have been looking since 1997 when I was diagnosed with focal glomerulosclerosis. I have been on dialysis for a year and a half now. My Dr told me that once your filters in your kidneys are damaged there is no way the can be replenished. That is what happened to me. The scare tissue in my kidney are so severe that they do not filter my blood properly. I have talked to other herbologist and doctors and the only thing they can recommend is transplant. I believe that God put everything we need to stay healthy on this planet. We just have to find what we need. I read on your web site that your herbs can cure kidney disease. I hope it can cure mine. What type of success have you had in getting patients off of dialysis and if you have how long did it take and what did they have to do?

    A:

    To help treat Kidney-Bladder failure/problems, detox your body with Full Body Cleanse. After the cleanse, your daily regimen should consist of Kidney-Bladder-Adrenal formula (3 capsules, 5 times per day) and the Dherbs Kidney Tea (1-2 cups per day). These formulas can help increase healing in your kidneys so that they can function properly.

    Q: I am a 29 year old woman currently living with one functioning kidney. Both kidneys were found to be "swollen" many months ago due to polyps that had formed inside my uterus. These issues were treated and now I'm interested in treating adult acne that has been forming on my cheeks for many years. My nephrologists told me not to take any herbs especially in capsule form because it may affect my kidneys. What is your opinion about taking herbs for people with one functioning kidney (or which article should I refer to)? Is there another alternative to treating acne without taking herbs. I am now greatly increasing my water intake and drinking one cup of unsweetened cranberry juice every day.

    A:

    If drugs don't hurt one kidney, how in the world could a plant hurt it? Herbs are 1 million times safer than drugs. The choice is yours however to make on taking herbs. We deem them safe. You may be interested in performing the 10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE as well as the HEALING SKIN OIL for external application of the acne. Please read our article on a href="http://www.dherbs.com/articles/acne-210.html">"ACNE". Check the articles section on our site!

    Q: My 20-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with focal glomerulosclerosis last year. (The same kidney disease Alonso Mourning had). She has protein spilling in her urine. I was thinking about purchasing your FULL BODY DETOX but not sure if she could take this with the medication that she is taking. At one point, she was on 50 mg of prednisone. That amount has been reduced to 5mg daily. She is also taking diovan and another pill (can't think of it at this time). Can you tell me what herb or combination of herbs will be good for her? With my faith and through God's and mercy, I'm praying for a miracle that her kidneys be restored.

    A:

    THE FULL BODY DETOX WOULD BE THE BEST THING FOR HER. NO MEDICATION IN THE WORLD CAN HEAL ANY DISEASE. GOD/NATURE DID NOT MAKE MEDICINE AND SO THEY ARE INORGANIC AND CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED BY THE BODY, WHICH IS ORGANIC. DO NOT TAKE THE HERBS IF SHE WILL STILL BE TAKING MEDICATION BECAUSE IT WOULD DEFEAT THE WHOLE PURPOSE AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    Q: I am going to do the full body cleanse and I am a kidney patient on dialysis. I wanted to know if my current medications will hurt me if mix the herbs with them. I currently take clonidine for blood pressure, finasteride for enlarge prostate, metoprolol for blood pressure, diovan for kidney health, dialyvite for blood pressure, and sprionolactone for blood pressure. Do I take the herbs with my meds or in opposite times of the day? I will adhere to your past recommendations and I look forward to the response to these two questions.

    A:
    If you’re worried about the safety and effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs, you may be especially interested in using a Cleanse to keep your systems clean, clear, and operating at an optimal level.

    Although the argument between pro and anti vaccination can be overwhelming for anyone we recommend doing extensive research on both sides before making a final decision on how to address your health needs. However, if you do choose to vaccinate, we recommend cleansing before and after vaccination in order to prepare and then rid your  body of any byproducts, impurities and toxins as a result of the drugs and help restore their body to optimal health.

    Q: I've ordered the 20 day body cleanse for my husband who has been diagnose with (RCC) Renal Cell Cancer which is in the kidney & spread to the Right lung and liver. They were going to take the kidney out today but could not because the right lung has filled with fluid it is being drained now they have started on the chemo pill SUNITINIB I've told the Dr. about the dherbs pills he said it was fine for him to take them along with the chemo pill he's has been on raw for 12 days also taking 2ounces of pure wheat grass a day is there anything else he can take to kill the cancer cells in the lung and liver?

    A:

    The chemo pill is not going to help him because it's a poison - his body won't recognize it! He'd do fine with just the raw foods, wheat grass, and FULL BODY DETOX herbs. But it is your choice to do whatever you are going to do. Cells become cancerous because of starvation of OXYGEN. He should add 30 drops of OXY-DROPS to every glass of drinking water.?

    Q: My fiance is diabetic and his doctor checked his kidney function and told him that his kidney is failing and he needed a kidney biopsy due to increased creatinine levels. Also he has high potassium levels and for this the doctor indicated a low potassium diet. We would like advice since all the doctors say the kidney cannot regenerate itself and the next step is dialysis. Please advise.

    A:

    The doctors are right under Western standards and information, no body part can regenerate itself with the USE OF DRUGS, but not so with herbs. You CAN regenerate every organ in the body with herbs. The doctors can't help him, but natural healing protocols can. I highly recommend he start with the Pancreas Kit and Regimen (which comes with a dietary guideline. Western doctors are insane. You couldn't pay me to visit a doctor after learning all I've learned. Doctors do more harm than good. Get your fiance on the herbs as soon as possible.
