Cleaning the Blood

handful of berriesAs blood travels through the body it picks up a great deal of waste and excess nutrients.

These would reach life threatening levels without the kidneys, whose job it is to flush them out of the system.

It takes 5 minutes for blood to pass through the kidneys. Blood enters the kidneys waste laden and leaves clean, having passed through many small filters that turn waste into urine. The urine then flows to the bladder at which point we feel the need to urinate.

So much waste passes through the kidneys that the smallest amount of mineral buildup can form a stone. Kidney stones can pass out of the body usually without incident. Some however can be large enough to block the ureter, (the tube that connects the kidneys with the bladder).

The cause of kidney stones is obesity, bad diet and not drinking enough water.

Signs and symptoms of kidney stones include, severe pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills and blood in the urine.

The following foods have shown to be very helpful to positively affect the liver and kidneys.

  • broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts
  • blueberries
  • cranberries
  • apples
  • grapefruit
  • coffee
  • garlic

You should also come to Get Back Health Chiropractic and Wellness Clinic and get your spine adjusted on a regular basis as this will ensure that your nervous system is at its best and this in turn helps your internal organs and your well being.
