#347 - Keys to Healthy Kidneys & Bladder
Show Notes

Your kidneys filter about 45 gallons of blood per day. About ~1-2% of that makes it's way into the toilet as urine.

Maintaining the health and function of kidneys filtration and urinary excretion is essential for health!

While it's common for kidney function to decline with age (just like it's common for blood pressure and/or cholesterol to rise) it is by no means HEALTHY.

In today's Medicinal Monday episode we bring you information to support you in creating and maintaining balance and harmony for your kidneys as well as fluidity to the urinary tract.

Reminder! Podcast episodes are prerecorded through November at which point the Podcast will be undergoing some changes. We look forward to the next rendition!
