The kidneys are organs in the body that serves a number of functions, including filtering waste products from the blood, regulating blood pressure and red blood cell production, and balancing electrolytes. When kidney failure sets in, a number of symptoms can be experienced by patients that results from the build-up of waste products and excess fluid in the body. This disruption of the kidneys’ function can lead to symptoms such as weakness, shortness of breath, lethargy, swelling, confusion, sleep disruption, nausea and vomiting, and loss of appetite, among other unpleasant symptoms. Kidney disease can be caused by a number of underlying diseases and conditions, and while some causes of kidney failure are treatable, it can be progressive and the damage irreversible. It is important to understand how the kidneys on each side of the abdomen functions in the body, in order to realize the potential of the cannabis product, hemp oil, in the treatment of kidney disease.
Hemp Oil Removes Toxins from the Body
Kidney disease is due in part to a build-up of toxins in the body. When the kidneys are functioning properly, they send toxins to your bladder, and the body later excretes the toxins during urination. When this function is compromised, the kidneys can no longer effectively filter the blood of toxins. Hemp oil may be a great treatment option for removing toxins from the body. Hemp oil has the ideal ratio of Omega fatty acids, which helps balance the body’s PH levels, and also aids in retaining oxygen in the cell membranes, which acts as a barrier to harmful toxins. Hemp oil also contains soluble and insoluble fiber, both of which help to cleanse the colon and intestinal tract, removing toxins. Cannabidiol (CBD) in hemp oil has antioxidant properties that can cleanse the blood of disease-causing toxins, and by removing the toxins it helps to prevent the body from reabsorbing the waste.
Hemp Oil Treats Underlying Conditions of Kidney Disease
Typically, individuals with kidney failure, whether it is chronic kidney disease, one stage or another, or a particular aged individual, cardiovascular disease is a common underlying condition associated with kidney disease. Cannabidiol (CBD)-rich hemp oil is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help in preventing thrombosis and atherosclerosis, but cannot repair the heart muscles to correct abnormal heart rhythms. Furthermore, hemp oil may also be beneficial in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure that can contribute to heart disease.
A major risk factor for kidney disease is diabetes. Diabetes causes injury to the small blood vessels in the body, inhibiting the kidneys from cleaning your blood properly, which causes the body to retain more water and salt than is normal. Furthermore, diabetes can damage the nerves in your body and make it difficult to empty the bladder which can injure the kidneys. Hemp oil is known for its low content of carbohydrates, and consists of nutrients that moderate blood sugar levels. The essential fatty acids in the hemp oil accelerate the metabolic processes in the human body, lowering sugar levels in the bloodstream. By protecting the blood vessels from diabetic damage, hemp oil helps the kidneys to clean the blood efficiently.
Alternative to Chemical Medicine
Hemp oil treatment offers protection from kidney failure by providing a natural alternative to chemical medicines such as painkillers and other pharmaceutical drugs that are used to treat underlying conditions related to kidney disease. The consumption of chemical-filled medications, regardless of form, poses a great harm to the kidneys. The chemicals can enter the bloodstream, placing pressure on the kidneys to clean the bloodstream.
The kidneys serve a vital function in the body, from getting rid of waste and balancing electrolytes and chemicals in the bloodstream, to water balance and blood pH regulation. When the kidneys cease to function properly, the body can be impacted in a number of ways, particularly if an underlying condition exists in the patient. Hemp oil from the cannabis plant, hemp, may be very effective in treating kidney disease in a number of ways. Hemp oil has the potential to rid the body of toxins, and the Omega fatty acids can stimulate balance to the body’s pH levels. Underlying condition such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease may possibly be treated with hemp oil, along with certain symptoms of kidney disease such as vomiting, sleep deprivation, loss of appetite, and nausea, among others. Hemp oil is also a great alternative to pharmaceutical drugs that can wreak havoc on the kidneys. The potential benefits of hemp oil in treating kidney disease are very promising.
