The kidneys are the filters of the blood. Every minute, one-fourth of the body’s blood—approximately 1200 ml—passes through the kidneys. Each kidney is composed of about one million microscopic filters called nephrons. These nephrons are responsible for eliminating toxins and waste materials from the blood, and for maintaining the electrolyte balance by selectively eliminating some electrolytes while retaining others, according to the body’s needs. The kidneys also help regulate other bodily functions by secreting the hormones renin, erythropoietin, and prostaglandins. Renin helps control blood pressure and erythropoietin stimulates the body to produce more red blood cells.
Psalm 7:9 Says
“Please, may the badness of wicked ones come to an end, And may you establish the righteous one; And God as righteous is testing out heart and kidneys.”
Because of their position deep in the body, the kidneys are among the most inaccessible organs. With good reason, therefore, the Bible uses the term to represent the deepest thoughts and emotions of one’s personality. A wound in the kidneys would be a very deep wound, either literally or figuratively considered. At times kidneys are mentioned in close connection with the heart, which is used figuratively for the total inner person.
The two main emotions that affect the Kidneys are:
- Fear (TCM- Traditional Chinese Medicine)
- Not Forgiving (Holistic Medicine)
“Understand please, Family and Friends, that holding on to, harboring these emotions of Fear and Unresolved Forgiveness is to surely weaken the kidneys and eventually one will begin to experience physical signs of kidney problems. If you know you are holding on to these very emotions, the good news is, strengthening and balancing the kidneys helps you in turn feel strong enough to let go of these emotions.” –Dr. Julissa

2. Fluid retention (puffy ankles, puffy eyes etc)
3. Smelly urine
5. High concentration of urea
6. Weak Bones
