Recently a friend of mine told me that they had a kidney infection and after attending their doctor they were prescribed antibiotics.  I am not surprised at how quickly people go to their doctors for a quick fix.  We live in a world of instant fixes and gratification.  I only wish people would consider herbal medicine.
Signs and symptoms of a kidney infection may include; fever, back, side or groin pain, abdominal pain, frequent urination, burning sensation or pain when urinating, pus or blood in your urine.
While antibiotics have their role to play, their over can undermine our natural immunity.  Kidney infections is a sign our immune system is struggling.  The kidneys play a role in cleansing and strenghtening the body against disease.
The kidneys are the water management organs.  The kidneys are responsible for keeping the chemistry of the blood alkaline by filtering out the dissolved acid wastes.  Approximately eighty percentage of the body is liquid and much of this fluid must be pumped, filtered etc, through the body’s urinary system.  We generally do not take the best care of this delicate tract.
You can assist your kidneys by drinking plenty of purified water and fresh alkaline juices e.g., cucumber juice, celery juice, sunflower green juice and buckwheat sprout green juice.
Dr Christopher’s kidney formula provides specific nutrition for the kidneys and bladder, cleans out depositions and strenghtens the urinary tract walls and muscles.
The Kidney formula:
Juniper, parsley, uva ursi, marshmallow root, lobelia, ginger and goldenseal.
Emotions and the kidney connection
Fear is the emotion stored in the kidneys.  Its like the kidneys are thrown out of balance by fear.  Kidneys are water organs.  The key to dealing with fear when it affects the kidneys is creativity.  Creativity is the gift that can come from releasing the fear and turning it into an energetic transformation.
