Kidneys & Bladder

Water makes up over 60 percent of the body's weight. Water helps distribute heat throughout the body, transports nutrients and hormones, and is the medium needed for all chemical reactions to occur (such as breaking down sugar into energy). Water also dilutes toxins and absorbs waste products. The waste products of protein digestion by the liver and excess water from every cell in the body are brought, by the blood, to the kidneys to be filtered out of the body.

By controlling the amount of urine, the kidneys directly control the water level in the body. This is an extremely important process because without sufficient water no chemical reactions can take place.

The equivalent of 250 gallons of blood will pass through the kidneys daily, to be processed for the removal of toxins and excess water, while water and salt and other substances still needed by the body are reabsorbed. Approximately 2 pints of filtered liquid, which we know as urine, will remain and pass on to the bladder and exit the body. There are over two million filtering units called nephrons in the kidney. This is a lot of tubing that can become congested with mucus and other toxic deposits.

When the kidneys become toxic this can affect the entire balance of the body on a very deep level. Internally cleansing can once again free up the energy of the kidneys so they are able to perform their vital functions with ease and confidence.

In Depth

Without kidneys one would die of poisoning. The kidneys filter and eliminate the natural waste products of metabolism. The kidneys maintain the water balance in one’s body. When the kidneys have even a slight imbalance, one’s very life force is affected. To understand why, we must look at the purpose of water. One’s body is made entirely of energy and water. Without water one would be a pile of salt. It is water that allows all the metabolic processes of the body to take place. Chemical reactions that create energy can only take place in a liquid environment. When this system is toxic, the entire body is deeply affected.

In Depth

Energetically, one’s ability to mobilize under stress or fear is controlled by the entire kidney area. This area includes the adrenal glands, which sit on top of each kidney. When the energy of the kidneys is compromised, one may feel he does not have the ability to face challenges. This can create feelings of insecurity, fear, and paranoia. Fear can be helpful in getting one to realize the need of action to get out of a harmful situation. However, insecurity causes one to feel they lack the power to meet any type of danger. By cleansing, the kidneys may be strengthened and one’s overall feelings of self-confidence can be greatly increased.
