What's good for a bladder kidney infection?

If you are already being treated for kidney infection, then there are some dietary and lifestyle recommendations that you can follow for kidney as well as bladder infection. However, if you are not already undergoing treatment for this problem, then you are advised to start getting yourself treated as soon as is possible. Keep in mind that the kidneys are a vital organ and are responsible for flushing waste out of the body. If they malfunction or stop functioning due to an infection, you could be in serious trouble. Since you are better off avoiding that kind of pain and grief, you should consult a doctor and start getting your self treated as soon as possible. You should take some strict dietary precautions if you are suffering from a serious infection of the kidneys. This indicates that you should, for the duration of the disease at least, eat foods that will help to enable your kidneys to start running smoothly and well. So you would need to add to your diet foods such as radish and asparagus. These are known to cleanse your kidneys as often as not. You must also start drinking large quantities of water. This will also help to flush out toxins from not only your kidneys, but your entire body as well. They will be expelled by the way of urine and extra sweat.

You should also cut down on your salt intake. This will help your body to not retain too much water, which is always dangerous under any circumstances. You should also be aware that if you have a kidney infection, you may also suffer from water retention. You are better off avoiding that condition by cutting back on your salt intake. Consuming too much salt will automatically help your body to absorb and keep water. You do not need to do this. So for the time being, try to eat a salt free diet as much as you can. Otherwise, you can reduce your intake of salt to a large extent. Either case works well. If you have a strong and long standing infection, you should also make it a point not to do any heavy work. This will have a direct and negative impact on your kidneys. Make it a rule to rest properly. A nap taken during the day will be very helpful in maintaining your good health and keeping up your strength for when you need it.
