Kidney is the filter that retains the valuable molecules in blood and excretes the waste products.
As man eats plants and animals, they leave some traces in his body in the form of insoluble stones. These stones ( urate, oxalate ,phosphate..) may be accompanied by inflammation, and is the cause of burning sensation upon urination.
Herbs generously affords many reliving remedies. These remedies are either natural herbs well acquainted by man, or culinary herbs and fruits.
These herbs act by inducing some changes in the internal environment of the urinary system, beginning by the kidney itself.
They act by improving the kidney blood flow, thus stimulating kidney productivity with a resultant urine excretion, increasing the protective colloids in the urine and this prevents further stone formation and inflammation, changing the pH of the urine to unfavourable environment for bacterial growth, and/or by dilating ureters so that moderately sized stones can pass through them and excreted with urine to bring the whole problem to an end.
The list involves so many herbs. Kidney herbal remedies are taken orally (household decoctions or juices), or they are formulated into pharmaceutical forms. Nothing is taken through other routes.
Kidney herbs as juices:
*Cranberry juice has good effect. Cranberry is formulated into capsules to acidify urine thus reducing bacterial growth and inflammation.
*Orange juice: It is excellent diuretic. The best high fluid intake recommended by physicians in these cases. I personally consume a lot.
*Lemon and apple juices are also good source of fluid intake.
Kidney herbs as decoctions:
*Corn silk(tassels in the husk of zea maize) has potent diuretic properties.
*Barley: one of the best known traditional therapies.
*Buchu, Juniper berries, Uva Ursi, Burduk, yellow Dock are all known old herb remedies for kidney.
Kidney herbs from Egypt:
*Egyptian desert weed " Cymbpogen Proximus" or " Halfa Bar".
*Ammi Visnaga seeds.
The decoctions of both herbs are used successfully for long years.There are pharmacopoeial pharmaceutical preparations of both in Egypt. They are sold OTC.
Kidney recipes from Egypt:
*(Nigella sativa + Honey) paste, to be eaten 3 times daily.
*(Curcuma powder + Honey) paste, to be eaten 3 times daily.
*Concentrated Grapes juice( by boiling)+ Barley decoction.
*Thyme decoction+ Celery decoction.
Any of these remedies should be accompanied with high fluid intake.
