SIZE: 4" length X 2" width and 1 1/2" thick
LOCATION: Above the belt line on to the side of the spine Right kidney slightly higher than left.
FUNCTION: As blood passes through hundreds of thousands of nephrons (see kidneys page 5) form urine and extract toxic materials, drugs and excess minerals. This maintains the purity and consistency of fluids and blood in the body.

The dyes from colored drinks such as Kool Aide etc. fluoride pills, toothpaste or water laced with fluoride. Excess meats and diuretics. Salt, Milk products and alcoholic drinks. Antacids which contain Calcium. Too acidic system.]
POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS/HEALTH CONDITIONS:
Albumin in urine - blood protein manufactured by the liver, necessary in maintaining water balance and contributing to blood viscosity(thickness) and normal circulation. Albumin in the urine indicates kidney disorder.
Bright's disease - nephritis (kidney inflammation); there are several forms.
Dropped kidney - usually in skinny people where the kidney detaches from its supporting moorings ( bands which secure it ) and drops to an abnormally low position (also know as a floating kidney).
Glomerulonephritis - inflamed nephrons (see picture of nephrons on page Kidney-5)
Gout - Joint pain caused by excess of uric acid.
Nephritis - Malfunctioning or inflammation of the kidneys.
Polycystic kidney disease - (some believe you are born with it) Many cysts on the kidney (appears to genetic).
Pyllonephritis - Bacterial infection of the kidney.
Stones/gravel - caused by excess uric acid or unusable calcium from either inorganic calcium (such as synthetic vitamins/minerals or cow's milk) or poor digestion of calcium (digestion of calcium needs Vitamin D, Magnesium and a heightened level of HCL (Hydrochloric acid))
Uremia - advanced kidney (renal) failure
Excessive urination can drain minerals from the body causing a mineral deficiency.
Retaining fluids can put stress on the heart, raise blood pressure. Excessive accumulation of chemical wastes and toxins in the blood stream. Infections. Stones. Tumors.
