Herbs for cleansing and healing the kidneys
Urologists are convinced that even ordinary tap water contains too muchSulfates, nitrates and chlorides, which actively stimulate the formation of sand and stones in the kidneys.That's why you need to periodically help "the main body filter" to be cleaned of harmful impurities, and it is best to do this with the help of medicinal plants.
Note: is herbal decoctions that perfectly wash the kidneys, but they do not wash calcium out of the body, unlike pharmacological preparations.
To cleanse the kidneys, you can eat zucchini, cucumber, melon, pumpkin or watermelon.If not the season for fresh vegetables and fruits, it is recommended to use a decoction of flaxseed, violet tricolor, elderberry flowers, shepherd's bag and / or bearberry.These medicinal plants have a diuretic effect, but one needs to take into account one thing - if there is high blood pressure, then it is desirable to add the herb of the motherwort to the broth.
It is also possible to carry out measures for healing the kidneys with the help of spices - parsley and celery are simply added to food, or used as an independent product.For the same purpose, juniper berries are also used - they are eaten in the form of a powder( they just need to be crushed), washed down with water 15 minutes before eating.These activities will help the kidneys fully perform the work on blood purification.
Please note: alcoholic beverage gin is prepared with juniper berries - it is this fact that makes it almost therapeutic in the eyes of people.Yes, if you use 20 ml per day before meals, then a minor therapeutic effect will be provided, but using it with decaliters you can only earn alcoholism.
Herbs for the removal of inflammation
Most often doctors diagnosed with inflammatory diseases of the kidneys pyelonephritis, which eventually can develop into renal insufficiency and hypertension.First of all, the treatment of pyelonephritis is aimed at removing excess fluid from the body, so it is advisable to use decoctions of field horsetail and bearberry.And to get rid of swelling, you need to take an infusion of oats.
Inflammatory process in the kidneys is always associated with cystitis - a disease of the bladder.Since kidneys contain pathogenic microorganisms, you need to help the body quickly and in full.It is recommended to take decoctions of yarrow, bearberry and birch buds.But there is one feature of the treatment of the inflammatory process in the bladder - it is necessary to load the organism with shock doses of decoctions of medicinal plants.And in this case, the preparation should be prepared in the proportion of 5 tablespoons of raw materials per 1 liter of boiling water.The product must be drunk within 24 hours.
Please note: if there are diagnosed chronic inflammatory diseases of the kidneys, then in spring and autumn it is recommended to take decoctions from these plants in the usual dosage( the broth is prepared from 1 tablespoon of raw material and 300 ml of water) for preventive purposes.
If cystitis progresses, sedentary baths from decoctions of birch leaves, horsetail, chamomile flowers, sage grass, currant and eucalyptus are very helpful.The broth is made from the calculation of 3 tablespoons of raw materials per 1 liter of boiling water, then it is filtered and added to a hot bath for the procedure.The bath should not be too long - the time of the procedure is a maximum of 15 minutes, and the frequency of procedures - every other day.
For removing stones from the kidneys
Of course, herbal medicine does not help get rid of kidney stones - you will need serious treatment under the supervision of specialists.But if the process of sand formation has just begun, or kidney stones are very small, then phytotherapy can quite help stop the progression of urolithiasis.
First of all, you need to know what kind of stones are formed in the kidneys:
- urate - you need to adhere to the milk-plant diet;
- phosphates - the diet should be meat.
If there is sand in the kidneys( this will be announced by the examination in a medical institution), it is necessary to take broths from diuretics( bearberry, birch buds) - this will help to permanently drain urine, prevent stagnation in the kidneys.
It is very useful in case of urolithiasis to take infusion from carrot seeds, decoction of rose hips, infusion of strawberry and cowberry leaves.Moreover, during periods of exacerbation it is recommended to take broths in concentrated form - 5 tablespoons of the vegetable component should be put on 1 liter of water, but during the remission periods, the dosage is reduced to 2 table spoons for the same amount of water.
Note: decoction of rose hips, strawberry leaves and cowberries can be used for baths with renal colic.A ready concentrated broth is added to a hot bath in the proportion of a half liter of the preparation per 10 liters of water.
How to properly use herbs for the kidneys
It should be understood that the treatment of the kidneys with herbs can not be swift - all broths and infusions are taken for a minimum of 12 months.
The course of phytotherapy with a single herbal diet lasts a minimum of 3 weeks.Further treatment can continue, but as a raw material for broth you need to use a different collection.
Every 2 months of herbal medicine you need to take a break in taking decoctions of medicinal plants.This break should be at least 7 days, and a maximum of 2 weeks.
During the course of therapy with medicinal herbs it is necessary to conduct a regular urine test, although, as a rule, there are no side effects even with prolonged use of the means described in this article.
Phytotherapy is an excellent solution for those who have problems with kidneys.Of course, it will be necessary to get a consultation from the attending physician - this will guarantee the safety of treatment.
