Kidney Rehabilitation - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


Our Kidneys and Liver are the two hardest working systems of our body involved in cleaning the blood and eliminating toxins. The whole of our blood passes through these two organs many times every hour and they can cope with an enormous workload if only we treat them kindly.

Our kidneys are so important and critical that we have been provided with two, one for a backup. They are located one on either side of our back just under the rib cage close to the spine. We all know that some people manage with one kidney and that other folk live by connecting their blood supply up to a machine twice a day to clean the blood when both their kidneys have failed. We have all heard of Kidney transplants and people donating one of their kidneys to a family member whose kidneys have failed.

Simple healthy habits ensure that your kidneys remain healthy and the greatest proportion of kidney failure in recent years has been through people not taking care to drink enough decent quality fluid, not treating infection properly or through the overuse of medications of one sort of another.

In other words, most of those folk who live only because of kidney dialysis machines or who live only by the use of a transplanted kidney should never have gotten into this state at all, and modern habits and modern medicine is largely to blame.

Healthy kidneys need lots of healthy fluid taken into the body to assist in washing out toxins through the urinary system. The main form of kidney neglect is not drinking enough healthy fluid. Another form of neglect is not drinking regularly during the day and missing opportunities to respond to thirst. Still another is getting into the habit of holding on to urine and not passing this frequently during the day.

Relying on the water in Coffee, Tea or Coloured and Flavoured drinks is kidney abuse. Actually so is drinking too much cows milk or fruit juice as the milk carries huge amounts of calcium and fat and the fruit juice too much acid.

Nowadays our environment is increasingly toxic through man-made toxins in the air and water and chemicals in our feed and it is increasingly critical that we don’t add to the load on our kidneys which have to work harder nowadays than ever before in the history of mankind. An additional factor that is not well known is that we process the emotion of fear partly by stressing our kidneys and our adrenal glands that are mounted upon them. Modern living with its higher levels of fear and stress is placing additional loads on our kidneys.

Ideally we should drink plenty of plain water and a variety of herbal teas that support the Liver and Kidneys regularly throughout the day. Ideally also, our urination should be frequent and a good volume during the day and mostly clear in colour which shows we are drinking enough to make the load on our kidneys light. Dark coloured urine is a sign that we are not drinking enough healthy liquid and allowing too many toxins to build up in our bladder and that we are not supporting our Kidneys well enough.

For those patients who present with kidney damage which could have occurred through poor drinking habits, as a side effect of strong medicines or too many pain killers, following a bout of toxaemia, or as a result of improperly treated urinary tract infections I prepare a Kidney Rehabilitation formulation to undo the damage and restore normal healthy function. Every time I do this I help someone get off the path that could lead to total kidney failure.

My basic Kidney Rehabilitation formulation consists of a concentrated extract of the following herbs; Alfalfa, Dandelion, Buchu, Rosehips, Slippery Elm, Uva Ursi, Yarrow, Echinacea and Couch Grass. The Bach Flower Remedies I add to support these herbs and the emotional component often behind weak kidneys are Walnut, Mimulus and Rescue Remedy.

This mixture taken as a supplement, 20 drops three times a day at a full glass of plain water will very quickly assist in restoring health and vitality to your kidneys.

In addition I always advise folk to take up a Rosehips Tea habit and aim to drink two or three cups of this healthy and pleasant drink either hot or cold every day of their lives. This will guarantee that they never have kidney problems again after they have been healed.
