DAWC 049 – Healthy Kidneys
Healthy Kidneys. While a liver cleanse seems to be a popular fad these days, many people often forget about the other organs of filtration. In fact, one of those organs is the kidneys. However, in addition to filtering toxins out of your blood, the kidney does many more important things.
As a matter of fact, do you know everything the kidneys do? Did you know they help regulate your blood pressure? Did you know they also release an active form of vitamin D crucial for bone health? In addition they can also influence the production of your red blood cells. And lastly, your kidneys can also control the release of a vital substance called prostaglandins. In case you weren’t aware, here is just a small list of some functions that prostaglandins perform:
- constriction and dilation of the lung airways
- smooth muscle contraction and relaxation in the gi tract
- dilation of the blood vessels
- uterus contraction in pregnant females during childbirth
- halting fat breakdown
- neurotransmitters production
- stimulation of the platelet response
- some are even responsible for causing a fever when you’re sick
With such a broad and important list of functions, we can clearly see why healthy kidney function is crucial to a healthy body. Furthermore, learn about common kidney problems, as well as their common medical treatments. In addition there are some kidney problems that are medical emergencies. Dr. Andy will outline what conditions warrant emergency intervention.
Lastly, learn about how the right diet and enzyme supplements can support kidney health and healthy kidney function to help many aspects of your body work properly.
