Why your kidneys and bladder are ruled by your fears
This is part 3 of my organ series.
Today, I’ll talk a about your kidneys and bladder.
I’m sure a lot of people can relate to the terrible pain that comes with a bladder or kidney infection.
What causes the infection? The easy answer is bacteria. That’s why your doctor prescribes antibiotics to treat your illness.
But, what gets your kidneys and bladder out of balance in the first place to allow the bacteria to make you sick?
If you’ve been reading my posts, you are familiar with the relationship between our organs and emotions. The emotion that is detrimental to your kidneys and bladder is fear, deep routed fear.
During my time as a surgeon, I talked to many dialysis patients. When I asked them if they were easily scared; they always said yes. They were afraid of everything. When I dug a little deeper, I discovered that their fears were more than a fear of needing machines to keep them alive. Their stories helped me see that living in fear had become a way of life for them. Most of them were so used to living in fear that they didn’t realize it was possible to live any other way.
Are you living in fear? Do you know where your deepest fears come from? Most of us have been carrying our deepest fears around for so long, that we don’t even remember the cause or root of our fears. It is not uncommon for our deep set fears to linger within us for 20, 30, or 40 years.
What I’ve learned through research and experience is that most fears are unfounded. In fact, fears that linger for years are usually nothing more than untrue stories that you’ve never questioned. When you take time to examine the fear, it becomes a lot less menacing.
Every organ has its prime time of day and time of the year.
The prime time of day for bladders and kidneys is between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. You may find your bladder and kidney pain and problems are aggravated at this time because that’s when the organs work at their peak to get rid themselves of of bugs, stones or whatever. The absolute low time for your kidneys and bladder is between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m.
In terms of seasons, winter if the prime season for your kidneys and bladder. In winter, your kidneys are more susceptible to influences from the outside.
Taste is another factor that affects the kidneys and bladder. Salty flavors work deep inside your body to keep you warm in winter. However, salty flavors doesn’t necessarily mean junk-food salt. When I refer to salty, I mean naturally fermented soy sauce, miso or plain salt.
A word about salt: Usually, salt is chemically derived and worthless or harmful to your body. Read the labels. You don’t want have any added ingredients within your salt. That means no iodine, no fluoride, and no other additives.
Here’s an interesting side note: The kidneys are related to your short-term memory. In Chinese medicine, long and short-term memory are attributed to different organs. The kidneys are believed to hold your life power. If your power is exhausted, you may get a wide range of problems, including memory loss. This can occur with older and younger people. It’s a sign you haven’t taken good care of your body and your batteries need recharging.
