Hello Judy. You mention bladder infections in your Dandelion post. Do you have any suggestions for Kidney infections?

Like Roger, why is a dandelion a weed? Is it because it grows in the wild?

BTW hope you have seen my Thank you in Circles for the translation "Resthouse for Three Friends." It adds to the meaning of the gazebo, isn't it? Again, it's very much appreciated!

I don't know why dandelions are considered weeds either. I grew up in a home where they were part of our summer diet.

Scriptor,

Dandelions are excellent at detoxing so I imagine they would help kidney function too. I did some research on a herbal called uva ursi: http://e-infopages.com/2011/the-good-and-bad-on-uva-ursi/ but with uva ursi we must be careful not to take it for many to days in a row.
Milk thistle is another herb known to promote kidney health. Horse radish is one of the most potent diuretics so in assisting in the urine flow would aid in quicker recovery of kidney infection.

Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, rest, avoid irritating foods such as alcohol, coffee, caffeinated beverages, chocolate, tea, salt, vinegar, citrus fruits and spicy dishes. See your doctor if their is blood in the urine or urination is painful and an antibiotic should be prescribed.
