Home Remedies for Kidney and Urinary Disorders

The human body consumes nutrients extracted from the food and then converts the same into energy. After this process the leftover food, known as wastes is thrown out of the body in the form of urine and bowels. The liquid waste or urea is passed out of the body by the kidney and urinary system which comprises of two kidneys, two ureters, bladder, two sphincter muscles, nerves in bladder and urethra. Malfunctioning of any of these individually or collectively may give rise to one or many of the following problems in the body: Analgesic Nephropathy, Glomerulonephritis, Good pasture Syndrome, End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), Glomerulosclerosis, Male Factor Infertility, Immunoglobulin A (IgA) Nephropathy, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), Kidney Stones, Nephrotic Syndrome, Kidney Cancer, Kidney Transplantation Rejections, Renal Vascular Disease, Cystocele (Fallen Bladder), Polycystic Kidney Disease, Bladder Cancer, Impotence / Erectile Dysfunction, Neurogenic Bladder, Hematuria (Blood in the Urine), Peyronie’s Disease, Interstitial Cystitis, Urinary Incontinence, Prostate Disease, and Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).

Some of the home remedies for treating the above kidney and urinary disorders are as given below:
