The theory of the colon holding water is very interesting. I am going to really think on that. In fact, I am going to do some research on that, because not too long after the frequent urination, came the constipation, and I had never had constipation before in my life!
I tried herbs for parasites, but nothing came out and I felt no different.
I tried nettle, but no change.
I haven't tried dandelion or cornsilk. I will look into those.
I am considering castor oil packs, but I would need help to get the packs over my kidneys, I think. I have heard wonderful, powerful things about castor oil packs.
I also came to this group to get inf. on cleansing kidneys. I am still not sure if this is a kidney problem, but my macrobiotic consultant told me that I had hardened kidneys, so I think there may be a connection for the cleansing of the blood and chemicals and all.
I plan to start the macrobiotic diet in 2 months, so hopefully her remedy (she gave me a pack for the kidney-to put on the kidney area) and I will be in a good position to do this in a few months.
I did have a UTI, but no infection in the kidneys.
