The kidneys are bean-shaped organs and are located near the middle of the back, below the ribs. They are part of the urinary system, despite their small size, our life would be impossible without them. They are reprocessing machines, since they have the function of eliminating toxic products of metabolism, for example, excreting waste such as urea, uric acid, phosphates, sulfates, drugs and medications. Other important functions of the kidneys are: conservation of essential substances, production of hormones, maturation of erythrocytes in the bone marrow. The easiest way to purify them is to drink enough water, as it helps eliminate toxins and waste that accumulate in the body.
It is necessary to take care of the kidneys and pay attention to any discomfort or pain in the area; but sometimes it is not so easy to distinguish when it is necessary to purge them, because the symptoms are not so evident. On a daily basis, the kidneys process approximately 190 liters of blood, just to eliminate 2 liters of waste products and water that was drunk in excess. When a cleaning and purification treatment is carried out, certain discomforts such as headaches, abdominal pain, fatigue, skin problems can end. Most of the diseases of the urinary system originate from the high level of toxicity in the blood, due to the excess of proteins. Some of the foods that, consumed in excess, can unbalance the kidneys are: proteins of animal origin, refined sugar, milk, salt, medicines, alcohol, sweets and processed foods.
