Kidneys are very small organs but they are of high importance to our health because they perform a lot of significant functions. Some of these functions are: remove the unnecessary fluid from the body, clean all the toxins and waste; produce about two quarts of urine and clean about 120-150 quarts of blood. They are beneficial because they create blood cells and improve the health of the bones, produce hormones which regulate the blood pressure, regulate the levels of electrolytes, and prevent waste accumulation.
But unfortunately there are many conditions that can cause damage to the kidneys such as: infections, kidney stones, overuse of OTC pain killers, diabetes, hypertension and a particular disease called glumerulonephritis (which is harmful for the filtering areas in the kidneys). Fortunately this type of damage can be repaired with just one cheap and commonly used ingredient- baking soda.
How does the Baking Soda repair the kidney damage?
It all starts with the process of producing hormones and enzymes in the endocrine system in order to help the digestion process and to facilitate the process of dissolving the chemicals we consume easier. Sodium bicarbonate has the power to protect the kidneys during this process, and pancreas creates the most of it. Sometimes, kidneys are capable of producing extra amounts and this is probably due to the food that we eat.
So the endocrine system is under huge pressure if we consume a lot of unhealthy food such as: added sugar, fried food and food full with fats. This is also the reason for decreased ability of the pancreas and kidneys to produce sodium bicarbonate and also weakened capacity. If there is a deficiency of sodium bicarbonate in our body, the kidneys will get severely damaged because the acids cannot get neutralized and they will accumulate.
Sodium bicarbonate is used in treatments like dialysis and many more in order to repair the damage of the kidneys. Also, acid buffering is a process that helps to get rid of the extra fluid material and waste that are in the blood. Dialysis can increase the levels of sedum bicarbonate in the system when the kidneys are unable to produce it on their own and the digestion process is affected. On the other hand, if there is enough amount of sodium bicarbonate produced by the kidneys it leads to healthy endocrine system and healthy kidneys.
A Scientific Research
Many studies have been conducted by the National Health Institute of the United States, and they showed the dialysis with sodium bicarbonate has the same effects as the standard dialysis. With this method, patient with damaged kidneys could get higher level of nitrate oxide and also it is beneficial in balancing and maintaining normal pH levels in the blood.
Dr. Ione de Brito-Ashurst and her team also conducted several studies in which they proved that consuming sodium bicarbonate on a regular basis can help in reducing the growth of chronic kidney disease and also prevent the need for dialysis. That is why scientist confirm that sodium bicarbonate has the power to prevent the development of chronic kidney disease and also repair the damage to the kidneys.
How to use Sodium Bicarbonate to repair damaged kidney
You should ask a specialist in this domain about starting this type of treatment. Sodium Bicarbonate does not contain any toxins but on the other hand it is very difficult to be processed for the stomach. If you want to prevent the kidney disease to grow further – follow these instructions:
- On the first day of treatment take ½ teaspoon of baking soda and put it under the tongue to dissolve it.
- On the second day, make a mixture with 1 ½ liter of water with ½ teaspoon of baking soda and ½ teaspoon of table salt. Consume this every day continually for three days.
- In the end, just take half the amount: ¼ teaspoon of table salt and ¼ teaspoon of baking soda.
Unhealthy life is the most common reason for kidney damage. So the first thing you should do is switch to a healthy and natural diet and regulate your weight. Here is also a video in which you can learn how to prepare a healthy drink with baking soda and apple cider vinegar.
