Overcooling of the body, latent or transferred infectious diseases can cause pyelonephritis - inflammation of the kidneys. But since accurate diagnosis takes some time, you can use natural remedies that will help relieve inflammation and will not affect further drug treatment.
It is necessary
- - warmer;
- - salt;
- - chamomile, nettle or kidney collection;
- - juice of potatoes, pumpkin or birch.
For acute inflammation of the kidneys, observe bed rest whenever possible. Apply a warm heating pad or heated salt in a bag to the lumbar region. Wrap the lower half of the belly with a wool shawl. For the treatment of pyelonephritis, use antibacterial agents, but be sure to combine them with diuretic herbs or drinks that increase the filtration capacity of the kidneys and thereby restore their excretory function. Do not forget about diet during treatment.
Use a variety of herbal teas as anti-inflammatories. The most affordable and easiest to prepare is chamomile. Brew 2 tbsp. l. plants with a glass of boiling water, wrap or cover with a towel, and use warm every hour. Alternate chamomile with other equally useful herbs or preparations, for example, kidney (you can buy it at the pharmacy). It combines herbs with anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties.
In addition to herbal decoctions to eliminate inflammation of the kidneys, drink (in season) fresh birch sap (1 glass 3 times a day on an empty stomach), raw potato juice (0.5 cups in the morning on an empty stomach), pumpkin juice (half a glass 1 time per day), as well as cranberry, lingonberry fruit drinks and dried fruit compotes.
Eat a vegetarian diet, mostly without cooking. Include gooseberries, sea buckthorn, strawberries, grapes, lingonberries and cranberries in your diet. Eat plenty of watermelons in season. Eat a few sweet apples every day. Eliminate completely alcohol (any kind), sour drinks, as well as canned, pickled, spicy, fatty and fried foods.
To reduce the risk of re-inflammation of the kidneys, do not forget about the cause of the disease. And it can consist in infections of the genitourinary organs, chronic tonsillitis and even caries.
