Kidneys 2

I do believe that going off sweets will help you, not hurt you. It is a matter of self discipline. I love cakes, cookies, and candy. I do know that my kidneys act up if I have had too, many pieces of chocolate at Christmas time. The sweets are made, and they are rich. I usually can’t resist. I have learned the hard way to eat one piece, but not four, or five.

I believe being heavy is a hinderance to your kidneys. Try going off bread, sweets, fruit, and potatoes. This will help you lose weight, and you still have many things you can eat. You will lose weight slowly, and feel better if you go off these four things.

If You Have Kidney Problems

If you have kidney problems, it will affect your back. Yes, too many sweets sets off my kidneys, and my back. I avoid heavy sweets for this reason, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love sweets. I do. It is harder to resist them, but I can’t have many sweets.

Ice cream with pie is too much. It should be a small cookie instead of four or five at a time. Your weight is another thing. If you cut down on the sweets, you will lose weight, and this will take pressure from your back. All things should be done with moderation.

I drink water instead of sodas. I rarely have a Coke. I notice a difference when I eat many sweets. I used to eat them anyway, but my kidney would flare up, and I would have to go to the doctor. He would say, cut the sweets, and fried foods for a while. Eat lightly, and don’t over eat.

Your body can’t handle all those brownies, and ice cream, cakes, and pies. I stopped the sweets, and sure enough with the weight loss, I came back to a normal, back. I also started walking at that time. I joined a place where I could exercise.

I lost more weight, and I felt better. It is hard to lose, but if you decide to lose for yourself, it will come off. Think of a simple plan. My plan is to go off sweets, bread, fruit, and potatoes. I lost right away. I stay out of the bed once I am up, unless I take a nap on the bed in the afternoon. I don’t sleep on the couch. It will cause my back to ache. I stay off it.

More on Back Troubles.

A good chiropractor will correct most back problems. I went once, but he didn’t adjust my back right away. I came several times, and it took time to see, or notice a tiny improvement. I was used to faster answers. I finally went to my doctor, and to therapy. This helped, and now I don’t have the pain in my back that I once had every morning.

Part of the remedy is to get up at a decent time, and don’t stay in, and on the bed all day. Another thought is to stay off the couch. It isn’t going to help your back. A straight chair is better, even if comfort has to let go and you sit at the table for a few days. It makes a difference.

I change sheets often. This way it assures that we are getting an adequate amount of sleep. Dirty sheets have germs, and this isn’t go to lie down on. I may be silly, but I would rather sleep on fresh sheets, than to wait four weeks plus to change them. Every other week is fine with me. At times when I know I am going to the doctor, I change the bed, and start cleaning. If I am going to the doctor, I don’t want to come home to have to clean the house.

Sitting too long on the couch will irritate your back. Sitting in the recliner too much may not be good either. Watch what you eat. Sweets will cause a backache eventually. Everything needs to be done with moderation. This was my dad’s favorite saying, because he knew how easy it is to do one thing too, much.

I hope these words have given some advice, and encouragement. When you are going through a negative day, and everything is falling down around you, it is hard not to hurt somewhere. Watch you attitude. Pray much, and walk on through it with victory. When you call on the Lord in the hard times He loves for you to draw close.
