Kidney Infections: Stop the Madness!

If you've ever struggled with kidney infections, you understand what a pain they can be.  Back pain, stomach pain, fever, nausea, physical and mental exhaustion can all be symptoms of a kidney infection.  No fun at all.  It's common that when you have one, whatever issue that caused it might not be addressed and the infections continue to occur.  Stress, lack of water, contaminations and other illnesses may leave your body vulnerable to a build-up of the bacteria that causes these infections, which begins a crazy cycle that is miserable!

Stop the Madness!

There are some wonderful herbs and remedies for feeding and healing the kidneys.  There's no reason why you can't stop the maddening cycle today!

If you find yourself predisposed to kidney problems and infections, here are some things you should consider:

  • Always, always, always drink plenty of water.
  • Chronic infections often come an overgrowth of candida (from medications, antibiotics, etc.) and Probiotics are vital to restoring that balance.  
  • Make cleansing a regular part of your health regimen.
  • Take Cranberry & Buchu daily to promote healthy digestion and to feed and maintain a healthy urinary tract.
  • If you struggle with repeat infections, Urinary Maintenance might be just what you need to maintain fluid and mineral balance.
  • Get plenty of rest! Yes, there's always more to do, but you won't have a choice if you're doubled over in pain.
Once the madness has begun, relief is all you care about.  Here are some remedies that have worked really well for us.

  • JP-X is the absolute best herbal combination for handling kidney infections.  It is designed to support the detoxifying functions of the body and strengthens kidneys and bladder.
  • IF-C is a Chinese combination thanourishes the structural and immune systems by stimulating blood flow and helping to eliminate toxins.  Whatever kind of infection you may be treating, this combination will work to eliminate it.  When combined with the JP-X, this will usually do the trick.
  • Cranberry & Buchu is great for prevention, but also if a kidney infection is especially rough, the cranberry builds up the urinary tract to ensure it's proper function.
  • Olive Leaf Extract helps protect from and eliminate the unwanted invaders (bacteria) that often cause the infection to begin with. It also promotes great circulatory health and supports the urinary system.
There are so many great herbal alternatives that gently correct damages in the body by nourishing the systems.  If you haven't found relief yet for your urinary and kidney health OR you have another hard to address health issue, we'd love to help you find herbal alternatives!  Give us a call at (405) 634-HERB.
