Chronic Kidney Disease needs Hydration

Chronic Kidney Disease a Case For Ultra-hydration 
By LouAnn Savage

Do you get up in the morning and on that first trip to the bathroom find your urine to be a dark yellow color with a pungent ammonia smell? This is your clue that you're biological terrain is way over on the acidic side. I'm not writing this to scare you...but then again, maybe I am. Maybe it's going to be your wake-up call and if it is, I'm glad.

Here's the deal. You've slept all night without going to the bathroom while the body continues to clean toxins out of your system and dump them into your kidneys. All systems are go and they are working hard to keep you functioning on automatic until you can wake up and hydrate. Once you hydrate the kidneys are happy. The toxin build-up in your kidneys gets flushed out. Making sure you hydrate well first thing upon awakening and before eating is the single most important thing you can do for your overall health. 

Located to the back of the abdomen, the kidneys are a pair of organs you can't live without. Hard to imagine, but all the blood in our body goes through the kidneys over and over during the day...and night. They perform the critical function of filtering the blood and creating urine that is the waste product of the work they do 24/7. The kidneys regulate fluid volume, composition of minerals and acidity when they excrete and reabsorb water and inorganic electrolytes. A complex regulatory system that contributes to the balance of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, sulfate, phosphate and hydrogen within the body, they maintain the normal concentrations in the extracellular fluids.

Because your kidneys balance your body's acid-alkaline balance, the level of bicarbonate in your blood is extremely important. Bicarbonate [HCO3] is a chemical or buffer that prevents the pH of the blood from becoming too acidic or too alkaline. This task of the kidneys is imperative for you to have life.

When there is ingestion or production of too much acid or too much alkaline substances, it becomes a stressor for the kidneys. This can make for difficulty in regulating pH. It's also possible to lose as much as 90% of kidney function without even experiencing any symptoms or problems. It makes the case for why water is critical to the health of your kidneys. It is the most important element for keeping you healthy and averting kidney disease.

Remember this, kidneys are the final buffer for facilitating the body's ability to keep its acid and alkaline conditions in balance. What is scary about chronic kidney disease is this. When you finally discover you have it, it has been present for many, many years. When you know this, the single most critical reason for drinking the very best water you can lay your hands on makes even more sense. And what would that water be? That would be micro-ionized, structured water. It's a water that has been proven scientifically to have superior efficacy and contribute to homeostasis. When choosing a micro-ionized water take a good, deep, hard look at Kangen water. A water endorsed by 6500 medical doctors in Japan and is the preferred water of Hiromi Shinya, M.D. cited on page 94 of his best selling book, The Enzyme Factor .
