What are diuretics, what are they used for and how can I get natural diuretics into my daily lifestyle?
|And here it is! A plain and simple down to earth explanation, that the man on the street can understand as to what diuretics are and how they work. The aim of this website is to always keep it simple and keep it real.|
Diuretics aid the elimination of sodium (salt) and water from the body through urine.
When the kidneys excrete sodium (salt) they excrete water from the blood at the same time. This process decreases the amount of fluid flowing through the blood vessels, which reduces pressure on the walls of the arteries.
The value of diuretics lies in treating the build up of excess fluid in the body that occurs with some medical conditions like heart failure, kidney and liver diseases and then also in the treatment of high blood pressure.
Remember to follow your physician or herbal practitioner's recommendations rather than trying to self-medicate with alternative remedies.
Diuretics should not be used as an aid in loosing weight and is forbidden by most physicians due to the side effects.
Diuretics should also not be used to eliminate excess fluid due to pre-menstrual bloating.
