How To Repair Your Kidneys Naturally Using Baking Soda
Very few people are aware that many household chemicals you use in the kitchen have untapped healing properties. One of the most common household items, however, has a potential that is rather difficult to believe. The basic ingredient in baking soda, sodium bicarbonate, has come under increased scrutiny lately because it appears that this chemical has the potential to repair or improve the operation of the human kidney.
In 2009, British scientists at the Royal Hospital in London uncovered research that bicarbonate slows the progress of kidney disease. In addition, the US National Health Institute has conducted experiments that show that kidney dialysis using bicarbonate agents have more restorative properties than standard dialysis treatments. It may be hard to accept, but the box you keep in your refrigerator to keep the ham from stinking may also save your life.
What Causes Kidney Damage
First, it is important to understand what causes typical kidney damage so you can understand how it is normally treated and how sodium bicarbonate differs from these standard treatments. Your endocrine system produces hormones and enzymes to help digest food into safer chemical your body can process. The pancreas is normally the organ that produces the majority of sodium bicarbonate to protect your kidneys during digestion.
Sometimes, even your kidneys will produce additional amounts of this enzyme depending on the type of diet you subject your digestive system to. If your diet puts too much strain on these two organs (especially a diet rife with sugars, fried fatty foods and other unhealthy choices that cause your endocrine system to work overtime in order to process these proteins and sugars), they will both suffer significant reduction in their ability to produce sodium bicarbonate naturally.
Without sufficient bicarbonate production to neutralize the acids produced during digestion, these acids can erode organ health, damage your kidneys and speed the aging process in adults.
How Does Bicarbonate Repair Kidneys
When those with significant kidney damage undergo dialysis or kidney treatment, sodium bicarbonate is one of the most common agents used. This process, known as acid buffering, is means of base supplementation, and is the basis for most new forms of dialysis treatments. This agent, when processed through the dialysis machine, helps in the removal of excess fluids and waste
