STEP 18 - URINARY SUPPORT

The urinary system is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Its function is to get rid of waste and extra fluid in the body by filtering blood, which forms urine, to be excreted by the bladder via the urethra. The kidneys also have other important functions such as removing drugs from the body, regulating sodium and potassium levels, and regulating hormone release, amongst others.

Aging can affect the urinary system in a number of ways. The kidneys gradually get smaller with age, and kidney function can be diminished, which can affect fluid levels in the body. Kidney health is quickly affected by dehydration, which can be a significant problem in seniors.

In the bladder, muscle strength and tone is reduced as the muscles become weaker. This means the bladder can hold less, and there can be inefficient emptying after urination. These two changes may cause an older person to have to urinate more often. 
 

Normally, when the bladder gets to be nearly full, a person starts to feel the need to urinate. In seniors, this need may be delayed, and when they finally feel the need to urinate, the need may be sudden and urgent. These changes can be compounded by weakened pelvic floor muscles in women and an enlarged prostate in men.

Kidney and bladder health can be supported through the use of the following Essential Oils:

  • LEMON

  • JUNIPER BERRY

  • CYPRESS

  • COPAIBA

  • DETOXIFICATION BLEND

  • PROTECTIVE BLEND

  • CELLULAR COMPLEX BLEND
