Kidney’s…. Much Needed Filter, (how clean are you keeping your filters?)

Did you know that “acid” is the targeted waste material you kidneys want to filter out of your blood? Problem is that many people’s kidney’s are weak because their nutritional daily intake is way deficient, so then a boat load of bad guys well call them “toxins”, decide to stay a while where we don’t want them, so this can cause the kidney’s to become less effective with their job which what was it again, oh yeah, “removing acid wastes from the blood”.

When this occurs, God built into our bodies some “fail-safe” or “back up plans” if you will, So when the kidneys are to slow at handling the acid load, the body goes to plan B to neutralize that acid why? because it caused damage. So what is plan B?

It BORROWS, what is it going to borrow? Well that would be potassium & magnesium and the donors are the muscles (can you say “LEG CRAMPS”, “Muscle twitches”, Headaches, and it also borrows calcium from da bones calcium is a wonderful buffering agent where acid is concerned.This borrowing system wasn’t designed to be relied on for long term use yet, that is effectively what is happening within most people.

Long term borrowing, causes some breakdown in your structural systems which causes that
* muscle tension
*muscle pain
*back pain (probably the biggest reason addictive pain killers are prescribed)
*osteoporosis & arthritis.

The other side affect of the body having to stay in an extended period of “borrowing”, since calcium is wonderful at buffering those acids, it contributes to the formation of kidney stones (ever passed one, not fun, I did in my younger years when Dr. Pepper was my favorite poison, passing those stones certainly convinced me that Pop should be outlawed), and it also contributes to calcification of our other body tissues.

Many peoples body’s are  completely overwhelmed and inflamed. Lots of folks struggle with recurring UTI’s (urinary tract infections), irritable bladder (means frequently needing to pee), bladder & kidney infections. Coupled with these, in combination some will notice they struggle with skin breakouts, lymph nodes that seem to stay “up”, they hold water (retention, edema), ladies struggle with their cycles, why because the urinary system is being overworked and under paid.

I would be happy to point you in a better direction with properly balancing and caring for these much needed filters of life…. if you are interested, please go to and click on the services tab, prepay for your 1 hr. consult & QFA Analysis and we can get you going….  investment in “YOU”, lets face it those kidneys are gonna need to be with you a long time,…
