Kidney 101

The kidneys are your body’s first line of defense against waste and toxins.

Simply put, if your kidneys are not treated properly, they begin to make your body sick.  These regulatory organs are your body’s filtration system and without proper care, they can start to fail.  The kidneys filter out waste, toxins and other substances, like phosphorus and water, produced from normal bodily functions. Without your kidneys producing helpful hormones, your body will start to deteriorate.
