The kidneys remove waste from blood, balance body fluids, and remove toxins in the body through urine. Anytime the body comes in contact with toxins or synthetic chemicals, they process through the liver and/or kidneys, so it's really important to support healthy kidney function on a daily basis for overall health.
Kidney stones form for a variety of reasons. They can exist in the body without causing discomfort, but they create significant havoc when they form blockages at the ducts and within the ureters while passing. Dissolving the stone is the first preference. Passing the stone is second. Here are some ways to support the body as it works to do both:
K and B Tincture (Kidney and Bladder) is specially formulated to nutritionally support normal kidney and bladder health. It contains extracts of juniper berries, which enhance the body's efforts to maintain proper fluid balance; parsley, which supports kidney and bladder function and aids overall urinary health; and urva ursi, which supports both urinary and digestive system health. K and B can be used as a daily supplement or during times of need.
Drink a few drops of any of the following oils in water throughout the day: Citrus Fresh, Lemon, Orange or Copaiba.
Drink a lot of water. In times of need, a gallon of water mixed with 8 oz. of cranberry juice will allow your body to properly cleanse itself.
(In general, a good measure of your *minimum* intake is 1/2 your body weight in ounces.)
As much as 5 drops each Frankincense, Idaho Balsam Fir, and Copaiba in a capsule with carrier oil, taken internally.
Apply this blend topically over the kidneys or back where there is discomfort. Layer diluted Peppermint over this blend. Apply frequently.
If unable to keep capsules down, make a blend of these oils and apply a few drops to feet every 15-20 minutes. This may make you sleep.
Also, as stones are passing, there is likelihood of infection to develop. Support the immune system's natural defense mechanisms with oils such as Thieves and Inner Defense.
