As explained on David Wolfe, the kidneys are small organs but they play a pivotal role in maintaining our optimal health. Namely, on a daily basis, they filter around 120 to 150 quarts of blood; help produce 1 to 2 quarts of urine, and are also in charge of processing waster and additional fluid out of the body.
They are also in charge of averting the depositing of toxins in the body, maintain the electrolytes balanced, and participate in the making of hormones that are necessary for blood pressure regulation, the production of blood cells, and for maintaining strong bones. This is why it can be problematic when the kidneys fail to function 100 percent.
Let us learn more about kidney damage and its consequences.
Kidney Damage Explained
Some of the main contributing factors to kidney damage are hypertension, type 2 diabetes, infections, kidney stones, and overuse of specific meds. If your diet is full of fried foods, fatty foods, and sugar, you will put a lot of stress on the endocrine system and the kidneys’ capacity to produce sodium bicarbonate will decrease. When there is a lack of this substance, the acids which are secreted during digestion cannot be properly neutralized and thus, they will contribute to kidney damage.
The endocrine system, as seen on David Wolfe, participates in producing enzymes and hormones needed for digestion of food into safe chemicals that the body can process. The pancreas is the organ which makes the most of sodium bicarbonate to keep the kidneys safe during the process of digestion. Depending on the food, the kidneys may produce higher amounts of it if needed.
