Kidneys are the organs that help filter waste products from the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body.
Most people with CKD have no symptoms because the body can tolerate even a large reduction in kidney function.
In other words, we are born with a lot more kidney function than is necessary for survival. Kidney function is often sufficient if only one kidney is working. That is why people can give a kidney to someone needing a kidney transplant.
Kidney failure occurs when your kidneys lose the ability to filter waste from your blood sufficiently. Many factors can interfere with your kidney health and function, such as:
- toxic exposure to environmental pollutants
- certain acute and chronic diseases
- severe dehydration
- kidney trauma
Your body becomes overloaded with toxins if your kidneys can’t do their regular job. This can lead to kidney failure and even be life-threatening if it’s left untreated.
How To Repair Your Damaged Kidney Naturally
The Royal London Hospital conducted a study whose main subject was baking soda and its effect on kidney stones. The study showed that this common household item can be very beneficial and can slow down the progress of kidney stones. It was revealed that it can also help people undergoing dialysis by fixing the damage made to the kidneys. Surprisingly, they would no longer need dialysis.
The kidneys naturally produce sodium bicarbonate and that is what is keeping them in shape. If there are low levels of sodium in our body the kidneys will try to compensate by producing more. And if they can not produce enough sodium or if they fail in transferring it to the urine, the sodium will go into our blood stream and will cause the blood to become overly acidic. This can also be caused by some other diseases, but it’s typically a sign of kidney failure. In such situations, when the kidneys are damaged they don’t remove the acid from the blood. Once they start functioning correctly and transfer the sodium into the urine, the blood becomes normal again.
The study was focused mainly on patients who were on dialysis, and it had amazing results. The patients were given sodium bicarbonate as an addition to the dialysis which slowed down the decline of kidney failure. By the end of the study, which lasted about 2 years, only 6,5 percent of the participants still needed dialysis, which is amazing compared to the 33 percent who needed dialysis before.
There are many benefits of consuming baking soda orally, because when it’s combined with dialysis it enhances its effectiveness, going directly to the blood stream. It prevents the kidneys from getting burned and also neutralizes the acids from our food, like sulphur, phosphorus, and nitrogen by allowing them to go through without doing any damage to our kidneys.
Amazingly enough, this common household item can help with other diseases as well. Patients with cancer often use it to fight the side effects of chemotherapy, and it has proven beneficial in the treatment of chemical and toxins overdose.
How to use sodium bicarbonate?
The first day, take half a teaspoon of baking soda and put it under your tongue to dissolve. The following days dissolve one teaspoon of soda and half a teaspoon of table salt into 1.5 liters water and drink it.
You must always remember that if you lead an unhealthy lifestyle and eat unhealthy food it can have a direct and negative effect, not only on your kidneys but on your overall health in general.
