Kidney Stones-African Holistic Health
Stones are crystallized waste ( can be in the form of minerals or fats). this waste has not been broken down (catabolized) by the body and properly filtered by the kidney. The kidney is like a filter which works by water pressure. If pressure is unstable due to high or low blood pressure, it affects the kidney. Furthermore, if the diet is of junk foods, the kidney is affected. Both of these affects can cause kidney stones. The kidney help to recycle minerals and electricity in the body. Consequently, a faulty kidney with stones is unable to help feed the body. Kidney stones often cause pain on the sides of the middle and lower back.
There are two kidneys, one on each side of the body. They are about the size of a drinking cup and each kidney has a tube that leads from it to the bladder. Further, the bladder lies between the hip bones. The bladder stores liquid waste (urine) until it is ready for release. When waste collects in the body due to constipating foods and/ or weak, improperly fed organs, stones result. Stones can cause the kidneys to clightly sag and to become misaligned due to the extra weight of the stones. Incidentally, the kidneys are related ( organ complement) to the testicles and ovaries and can indicate a dis-ease in the reproductive system.
