Natural remedies for inflammatory processes of the kidneys and urinary tract
Inflammation of the kidneys is a common urinary tract infection. It occurs due to the spread of a bacterial infection to the kidneys. Humid or warm weather favors the development of these infections. The symptoms are pain and discomfort in the area of the lower back and genitals. Feelings of chills, tremors, nausea, malaise, diarrhea and fatigue occur. Inflammation of the kidneys is often associated with inflammation of the bladder. This causes burning and pain in the genitals, frequent urination, cloudy urine and pain when urinating. In a large number of cases, it is an infection with Escherichia coli. Possible causes of pain are the formation of kidney stones or surgery of the urinary tract. Due to the shorter urethra and the proximity of the anal opening (from where bacteria easily pass), urinary tract infections are more common in women.
Medical medical therapy is needed (usually with antibiotics) and plenty of fluids (as much as 3 liters a day). These inflammations significantly deplete the body, so it is necessary to go to the toilet often at the first signs of urination. Fluid increases urination which encourages the expulsion of bacteria.
- Sodium intake should be reduced (salt, processed meat, canned food, foods high in spices, fatty foods).
- The intake of alcohol, carbonated drinks and sweet tea should be reduced.
- Bean pod tea is an excellent natural preparation for cleansing the kidneys and the entire urinary tract. Boil 30-50 grams of bean pods in 1 liter of water. Drink three times a day.
- Make a drink with 3 lemons, one ginger, one cup of parsley, 5 cloves of celery and 6 cups of water. Chop the ingredients in a blender. Drink three times a day until the pain and discomfort stop.
- Use parsley tea, cranberry tea, nettle tea, ear tea and corn silk.
