Kidney Comp 2oz
Kidneys remove waste products from the body, keep body chemicals in balance, and help maintain the body’s water balance. There are a number of different renal problems that may occur.
One important symptom of kidney problems is edema. Edema results when the kidneys produce less urine because they are unable to properly excrete salt and other wastes, and fluid builds up in the body. Toxic wastes may accumulate in the bloodstream due to kidney malfunction, a condition known as uremia. Symptoms of kidney problems include abdominal pain, appetite loss, back pain, chills, fever, fluid retention (bloating), nausea, urinary urgency, and vomiting. The urine may be cloudy or bloody. Back pain may be sudden and intense, occurring just above the waist and running down the groin.
Barberry – One of the most effective herbs for fighting bacterial infection. Contains Berbamine, an alkaloid found to reduce inflammation. Berberine, one of the herb’s active constituents, exerts a threefold action against yeast infections, including yeast mastitis. It has a direct antibiotic effect on Candida albicans. Finally, it stimulates blood flow to the spleen, which releases compounds to stimulate the immune system.
Cornsilk – A diuretic and a rich source of potassium. It is used for disorders of the urinary tract and as an aid in liver, kidney, and bladder disorders. Cornsilk encourages urination, while the potassium in the herb offsets potassium loss caused by increased urination.
