Anxiety and Your Kidneys

Did you know that your kidneys have an influence on your anxiety and viceversa?
Prevention is a basic tenet of holistic health, and a necessity for the maintenance of optimal kidney health. In its role as blood filter and detoxifier (fluid and waste manager) the kidney is open to significant abuse, from within and without.
Balance is another key wellness principal, and the physical manifestation of balance is the kidneys’ good functioning. Usually,one has got two kidneys. However, if you have got only one, it is not a problem. You can live with one kidney as long as you take care of it. The two kidneys are symmetrical bean-shaped organs. Their size is about that of a fist. They are located in the mid-back, below the ribs.
Their function is that of filtering the fluids of the body. The kidneys filter out the impurities that are not desired in your body. They will be expelled either through your skin or through the organs whose task is to do just that. Obviously, this filtering the fluids is a very vital function. Your kidneys keep the body’s fluids in a chemical balance. If this chemical balance is granted, your mental state is also much more balanced.
This means there are substances in our body that are used to balance the interior environment They play a significant role in acid-base balance, and the control of blood pressure. In fact, blood pressure is an important indicator for a good balance in the body and in the mind. The kidneys have also another task and that is to secrete three essential hormones: These have an important role in the regulation of blood pressure, of the stimulation of the production of red blood cells and the third one is an active form of vitamin D. I am not going to describe the action of this vitamin here.
There are various actions that help to protect your kidneys And that keep you calm. To be calm also means to not suffer anxiety. The first thing to observe is to keep your kidneys warm. They are the first organ that suffers from being exposed to cold. It is therefore advised to cover them and not to expose them to cold weather. The second is to drink plenty of water. This does not mean to drink gallons in one go. It means to drink steadily, during the day. A glass of water every two hours is best. The water should not be ice water. Room temperature is best. Although obviously, there are other factors that influence your state of mind, taking care of your kidneys helps you to prevent anxiety that is strongly linked to your kidneys.You can do even more to help your kidneys.
Rub your hands together, palm to palm until they get very hot. Then massage your kidneys with your palms, then turn your hands around and massage your kidneys with your nuckles. Rub your hands palm to palm again until they are very hot and then pat your kidneys with your warm palms. This is a simple exercise that you can do every day and that helps to keep your kidneys fit. You may also do it various times every day. It only takes a few seconds and I am convinced that your kidneys will thank you for this special attention. It is another natural cure for anxiety.
