What Do The Kidneys Do

S3AM10-02.JPG

Your kidneys are a vital part of your body's waste disposal and cleansing system. These small organs act as filters to remove waste material produced by the body. This waste material leaves the body as urine together with extra fluid. Apart from this, the kidneys also make Erythropoietin, Rennin, and active Vitamin D. These three hormones have their specific functions: Rennin plays a role in controlling blood pressure, Vitamin D regulates calcium levels and cell growth, and Erythropoietin stimulates red blood cell production.

How do the Kidneys Function:

  5. 5

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

What Does The Bladder Do

The bladder, also referred to as urinary bladder, has two important functions: it stores the liquid waste material processed by the kidneys, and it empties its contents every so often. This organ works in consonance with a sphincter mechanism, which is responsible for voiding urine from the bladder.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

S3AM10-03.JPG

While storing urine, the bladder is relaxed and the sphincter is resistant. When it is time to void the contents of the bladder, the sphincter relaxes and the bladder contracts, increasing the pressure that pushes the urine out. The system behind this store-and-void process can become deranged when the bladder is either overactive or underactive. It can also be caused by sphincter dysfunction. As a result of any of these problems, an individual can suffer from incontinence.

Healing Properties

Garlic has multiple healing properties that many laboratories are studying today. Research has, and is being done, to analyze the effect of garlic on heart disease, high blood pressure, skin diseases, and urinary tract infection.

Next to Aloe Vera, garlic has been the subject of the most number of studies. These studies have more than just suggested that garlic can lower LDL cholesterol levels. Some research shows that garlic stops the liver from producing too much LDL cholesterol. Other studies point to garlic's ability to act as an agent that dilates blood vessels so that blood pressure is lowered. In addition to this, garlic is seen to prevent blood platelets from becoming too sticky and from forming clots, thereby reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Traditional health practitioners have used garlic to kill viruses, relieve pain, and get rid of fungi and parasites. In fact, synthetic products have been made mimicking the properties of garlic, and these too have been effective in various treatments.

An interesting turn in garlic studies is the effort to ascertain if it is a possible solution to the problem of microbes that have become resistant to antibiotics. With many diseases now being categorized as multi-drug resistant (MDR), researchers see the urgency of finding a new anti-bacterial agent outside of the usual menu of medications. Garlic may yet provide this life-saving solution.

Garlic as Remedy for Kidney and Bladder Issues

Garlic works as a remedy for kidney and bladder issues because of its antimicrobial properties. Garlic contains allicin, which has been proven to act as a broad-spectrum anti-bacterial agent. This means that ingestion of raw garlic can help resolve bacterial infections in the kidneys and the bladder. Its infection-fighting properties have been studied by the scientific community, who have confirmed its effectiveness.

Tips, Tricks and Warnings

Garlic is safe and non-toxic, but there are some things you need to be aware of when using it.

  • Ingesting raw garlic will give your breath and sweat a strong and rather unpleasant odor. This indicates the presence of the very substances that give garlic its healing properties.
  • To minimize the odor, ingest something that has chlorophyll with the garlic. You can chew some parsley, some lettuce, or some other fresh leafy green vegetable.
  • It may help to take a bigger does of your garlic at night, and shower in the morning. This should greatly minimize the garlicky odor.
  • If you are taking blood thinners regularly, consult with your doctor about taking garlic as therapy.
  • Do not exceed the recommended dosage. A rare, though possible side effect of taking garlic, is spontaneous bleeding.
