Lungs, Kidneys & Bladder

Lungs

illustration of lungs

The lungs are designed for two purposes. Both are critical to life for they must happen every moment for one to survive. First, oxygen from the air comes into the tiny little air sacs of the lungs. These air sacs are called alveoli and there are about 300 million of them in the lungs with a total surface area of around 750 square feet! The walls of these alveoli are only one cell thick. This allows for an easy transfer between blood and air. The blood then circulates oxygen it has picked up during this process to every cell in the body.

At the cellular level oxygen is combined with sugar to produce the energy we need to live. This process is called internal respiration. Secondly, the lungs work to get rid of carbon dioxide, the waste product of the body’s energy production. This transfer also takes place over the great surface area of the lungs’ many alveoli. Because the lungs contain a higher concentration of oxygen and the blood a higher level of carbon dioxide, the molecules of each move to balance each other. This leads to the transfer of oxygen for carbon dioxide through the alveoli walls.

The air we breathe however is often contaminated with particles, carbon monoxide and other toxic substances. Breathing in this dirty air causes the bronchial tubes to constrict in order to trap particles in its sticky mucus. This constriction, while defending on one hand, causes us to take in less oxygen, which can affect the performance of one’s body.

In Depth

Without oxygen one would die within three minutes. Oxygen allows all metabolic processes to occur. The lungs provide life and when they become toxic this is directly reflected in one’s quality of life. If the lungs are cleansed, there is a great source of energy and freedom that one may hardly know was possible. This is because the lungs are so closely related to every process that goes on within the human body.

Emotional Signs Traditionally Associated With Toxic Lungs

Primary Signs
  • Sorrow
  • Grief
  • Loneliness
  • Denial
Secondary Signs
  • Withdrawal
  • Sadness
  • Introspection
In Depth

At the cellular level one’s air supply is a matter of life and death. Every second, thousands of cells are dying and being replaced. This is normal. However, when one’s lungs become toxic, the supply of oxygen at a cellular level is greatly compromised. One can live with a compromised oxygen supply; however, less oxygen means more cellular death. Because death is directly associated with grief, when there is more death in the body this can be felt as hopeless feelings of sadness, grief, and loneliness. When one’s lungs are healthy, there is great happiness to be felt because every cell can live its full life.

Kidneys & Bladder

illustration of Kidneys & Bladder

Water makes up over 60 percent of the body's weight. Water helps distribute heat throughout the body, transports nutrients and hormones, and is the medium needed for all chemical reactions to occur (such as breaking down sugar into energy). Water also dilutes toxins and absorbs waste products. The waste products of protein digestion by the liver and excess water from every cell in the body are brought, by the blood, to the kidneys to be filtered out of the body.

By controlling the amount of urine, the kidneys directly control the water level in the body. This is an extremely important process because without sufficient water no chemical reactions can take place.

The equivalent of 250 gallons of blood will pass through the kidneys daily, to be processed for the removal of toxins and excess water, while water and salt and other substances still needed by the body are reabsorbed. Approximately 2 pints of filtered liquid, which we know as urine, will remain and pass on to the bladder and exit the body. There are over two million filtering units called nephrons in the kidney. This is a lot of tubing that can become congested with mucus and other toxic deposits.

When the kidneys become toxic this can affect the entire balance of the body on a very deep level. Internally cleansing can once again free up the energy of the kidneys so they are able to perform their vital functions with ease and confidence.

In Depth

Without kidneys one would die of poisoning. The kidneys filter and eliminate the natural waste products of metabolism. The kidneys maintain the water balance in one’s body. When the kidneys have even a slight imbalance, one’s very life force is effected. To understand why, we must look at the purpose of water. One’s body is made entirely of energy and water. Without water one would be a pile of salt. It is water that allows all the metabolic processes of the body to take place. Chemical reactions that create energy can only take place in a liquid environment. When this system is toxic, the entire body is deeply affected.

Emotional Signs Traditionally Associated With Toxic
Kidneys & Bladder

healthy kidney and damaged kidney
Primary Signs
  • Fear
  • Insecurity
  • Paranoia
Secondary Signs
  • Poor reaction to stress
  • Panic attacks
  • Shaking
In Depth

Energetically, one’s ability to mobilize under stress or fear is controlled by the entire kidney area. This area includes the adrenal glands, which sit on top of each kidney. When the energy of the kidneys is compromised, one may feel he does not have the ability to face challenges. This can create feelings of insecurity, fear, and paranoia. Fear can be helpful in getting one to realize the need of action to get out of a harmful situation. However, insecurity causes one to feel they lack the power to meet any type of danger. By cleansing, the kidneys may be strengthened and one’s overall feelings of self-confidence can be greatly increased.
