Kidney Healthy – 5 Ways to keep your kidney healthy
Kidney Healthy :
How much do you know about the kidneys? Most of us know that they are responsible for the production of urine. This is how we deal with waste. But is it or not?
My neighbor next door died of kidney failure last month. He has been on dialysis for many years.. So I think he is on the waiting list for transplantation. Unfortunately, it did not happen in time. I have known him since 1989, when he was in good health and he was working full-time. It is equally worrying to see the decline in recent years.
Data from the United States shows that in 1995, more than 3 million people had some form of kidney disease, such as infection, kidney stones or cancer.
If we were to avoid one of these statistics and follow the same guidelines as my poor neighbor. It’s time to talk about kidney success rather than kidney failure. This means ensuring that we have healthy and happy kidneys. We need to understand what they do and how to take care of them better. You know, I’m not a doctor or a dietitian. “Kidney” is a complicated thing, so keep it simple and clear. Come on…
What your kidneys are doing-at a glance
You will find the kidneys (two bean-shaped organs. Each organ is about the size of your fist) in the middle of your back. Below the ribs on both sides of the spine Although the kidneys are small organs (about 0.5% of their total weight), they receive about 20% of the blood pumped by the heart, which helps:
- Control blood composition and eliminate waste.
- Affect your blood pressure
- Stimulate the production of red blood cells
- Maintain the body’s calcium level and increase vitamin D
First, let’s take a look at some well-known functions
When the kidneys receive blood, the kidneys are processed and returned to the body without filtering out waste and other unwanted substances to be excreted in the urine. Urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder, where it stays until we growl.
But I bet you will never know that on a good day, your total blood volume (about 7-8 liters) is filtered about 20-25 times a day. This is a lot of filtering! And because the number of molecules that can be filtered out at any given time is limited. You can see how easy our kidneys are to overwork when we fill our bodies with toxins through food, drugs, and pollutants.
Kidney and calcium
I have already talked about the relationship between kidneys and calcium in this newsletter. Your body stores calcium in bones. But this depends on maintaining a stable blood calcium level through diet.
If the calcium level in the blood drops, hormones will be secreted to increase the reabsorption of calcium by the kidneys, thereby returning the calcium level in the blood. The same hormones and vitamin D can also stimulate calcium secretion in the bones and calcium absorption in the intestines. Healthy kidneys and diet are important to prevent osteoporosis. Kidney stones are usually caused by problems with the kidneys’ ability to process calcium.
3 ways to ensure kidney success
- Reduce the burden on the kidneys by restricting the intake of toxins and acidic foods. Red meat, savoury food, tea, coffee, additives, large amounts of alcohol, cigarettes, etc.
2. Increase food intake and enhance kidney function. My favorite quinoa is a good choice, as are barley, red beans, black beans, and green beans. Salmon and trout are a good idea. The same is true for the following vegetables and herbs: fennel, onions, chives, celery, beets, parsley, chives, garlic, ginger, cloves, and dandelions.
3. Make sure you drink plenty of water. This will help prevent your kidneys from taking in too much acid. At least 2 liters per day is sufficient.
Follow these 3 tips and you will definitely improve your kidney health. It can also relieve lower back pain. Your hair will look beautiful, fast and strong as a reward
Go, because you are so valuable.
