Often, a new patient will express mild surprise—perhaps even downright
incredulity—when we suggest that disordered kidneys are an important factor in
his condition. The patient may have come to us because of a skin irritation,
some form of respiratory weakness or nagging headaches: perhaps the main symptom
may be rheumatic or apparently cardiac distress. Even if none of these, we
consider it an essential part of all preliminary consultations to assess the
efficiency of the kidneys. Only rarely do we find these organs exempt from the
overall bodily disease.
.........The four sets of organs which share the burden of removing wastes from the blood-stream are the skin, kidneys, lungs and liver, and when all of these are in normal condition, there is co-ordinated action and the ' table' is level. But if any one does less than its fair share, the others must inevitably—and promptly—come under strain, and the job is done less efficiently.
So it is that we often find the major symptom of kidney weakness to be respiratory difficulty, or sometimes an unwholesome, state of the skin. One veterinary surgeon told us, after a lifetime's study, that he had never examined the body of a tubercular animal in which diseased kidneys were not also evident.
And more than the eliminative organs suffer when the kidneys are unable to carry their fair load: the heart has close affinities with renal function. When the bloodstream is not properly relieved of its acidic wastes it becomes less fluid and more viscous—the ' collemic' condition described by Lindlahr and other early naturopaths. This means a greater load for the heart, and the usual response is a marked increase in blood pressures. Conversely, if the circulation is poor because of a weak heart action, or in hypertension ('high blood pressure'), the kidneys work under considerable difficulty. This has led at least one naturopath to the conclusion that most cardiac illness is due to failure of the kidneys—and this is equally true in which ever direction the vicious circle originally operated.
.......Among everyday factors which are capable of destroying kidney cells are phosphoric acid and several antibiotics. Phosphoric acid can occur ' naturally ' in dangerous concentrations as a result of overeating eggs: less naturally it may be taken into the body as an ingredient of a cola drink. Among the drugs, the sulphonamides have a particularly vicious record. In more general ways, destruction of kidney cells can result from overwork combined with malnutrition. Only rarely do we find overwork alone producing vital breakdown: but when there is also lack of balance in nutrients, and perhaps a total absence of certain vital elements, breakdown is inevitable.
Where there is kidney distress, the citrus fruits—oranges, grapefruit and, most of all, lemons—are best avoided. I had a vivid object lesson in this connection as a youngster, when I mentioned admiringly to my father that I had seen Miss X eating a lemon 'just like an orange'. The feat had impressed me as indicative of super-normal will-power and I was astonished when, instead of approval, my father showed real anger. It was some years before I understood his reaction. Miss X was a patient with serious heart and kidney disorders, and one of her symptoms was a rather puffy fatness. Somewhere she had read that lemons were good for reducing, and she had decided to give them a trial. Instead of producing an astringent effect on the digestive organs, or merely stimulating greater nervous activity, the lemons seriously added to the kidney overload. Instead of bringing her bulk down, they accelerated the already grave degeneration of kidney tissue.
.........One of the first outward signs of kidney sluggishness is surface oedema—a flabby puffiness of the skin, especially in soft and loose areas. Most often this is noticeable in the lower eyelids as ' bags under the eyes', but it also occurs to varying extents over the whole body. To the uncritical eye, this excess wateriness may look like a comfortable covering of fat: the rather old-fashioned term ' bloat' is a more appropriate description.
......A tired ache across the small of the back is characteristic of overworked kidneys, although muscular fatigue due to incorrect posture can produce a similar discomfort. Where the kidneys have been overworked or under active for a long time, the fingernails show marked corrugations—ridges running the length of the nails—which are often termed ' kidney streaks'. In more acute distress, perspiration may have a distinct odour of urine, due to elimination through the skin from an over-charged bloodstream.
As we noted earlier, often the most obvious signs of kidney inadequacy are seemingly far removed from these organs: respiratory difficulties and skin rashes are typical. When the kidneys fail to carry their fair share of the load, undue pressure falls on lungs and skin with results ranging from catarrh, through bronchitis and asthma to tubercular lesions: from dry or itchy skin to eczema or psoriasis. Many other factors come into the production of these diseases, but the kidneys share the responsibility in nearly every case. ----BE KIND TO YOUR KIDNEYS by C. Leslie Thomson
