We all know that the kidneys are small organ. The kidneys are about the size of a fist, but you should know that they perform vital functions that play a role in overall health. The medical experts say that the kidneys filter about 120-150 quarts of blood, to produce 1-2 quarts of urine, filtering waste and extra fluid out of the body. As we said, the kidneys perform many vital functions in the human body, such as: prevent the buildup of waste in the body, keep electrolyte levels stable, and make hormones that regulate blood pressure, make blood cells, and maintain strong bones.
As we said, the kidneys are extremely important for the human body. This is why you should be very careful and take good care of your kidneys, because there are many factors that can lead to kidney damage, such as: type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, a disease called glomerulonephritis, which damages the kidney’s filtering units, infections, kidney stones, and overuse of some over-the-counter pain killers. Repairing the kidneys after damage just may lie in a common household item, which you probably already have in your kitchen cabinet. Yes, we are talking about baking soda. In this articled we are going to show you how to cleanse and improve the function of your kidneys with just ½ tsp. of baking soda, every day.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
How does it work – well, you should know that the endocrine system produces hormones and enzymes to help digest food into safer chemicals that the body can process. The pancreas is usually the organ that produces the majority of sodium bicarbonate to protect the kidneys during digestion. Sometimes, the kidneys will produce additional amounts, depending on the type of food you eat. This means that if your diet includes added sugar, fried foods, fatty foods and other unhealthy choices – the endocrine system can become stressed. Both the pancreas and the kidneys will suffer a significant reduction in their ability to produce sodium bicarbonate effectively. Without sufficient production of bicarbonate, the acids produced during digestion cannot be effectively neutralized, causing kidney damage.
You should also know that sodium bicarbonate is one of the most important agents used in dialysis or other treatments for kidney damage. A process known as acid buffering aids in the removal of excess fluids and waste material from the bloodstream. Dialysis helps to add sodium bicarbonate to the body, because the kidneys are no longer able to produce it in order to process food and waste materials. Note: but, when the body is able to produce normal amounts of bicarbonate on its own, the life of the kidneys is extended, and the endocrine system can remain healthy.
A recent study, conducted by group of researchers at the U.S. National Health Institute, has revealed and showed the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate dialysis in the place of normal dialysis. Patients placed on this treatment showed greater nitrate oxide synthase, which is a process that balances the pH level of the blood. Another, more recent study, conducted by the famous Dr. Ione de Brito-Ashurst and his colleagues from the Department of Renal Medicine and Transplantation, has found that daily sodium bicarbonate intake slows the progress of chronic kidney disease and prevents patients from having to undergo kidney dialysis. This allowed researchers to conclude that sodium bicarbonate can prevent, and in some cases, even reverse the onset of chronic kidney failure, and stop related diseases such as heart disease and end-stage renal disease.
HOW TO USE SODIUM BICARBONATE FOR KIDNEY DAMAGE
