Most often you can hear from a doctor in inflammatory diseases, such as acute pyelonephritis or exacerbation of chronic pyelonephritis, recommendations: "Have a drink of kidney tea, cranberry leaf, etc.".Of course, if you do not have the opportunity to consult a herbalist, you can follow these recommendations, use "ready-made" pharmacy( herbal teas) to treat kidney pathologies, while drinking uratepsypics such as kanefron, cyston, etc. In this article, we will consider the wider use of herbs in the following kidney diseases:

    3. With glomerulonephritis, which can occur after the transferred infectious diseases( tonsillitis, tonsillitis, scarlet fever, diphtheria, pneumonia, etc.), with systemic diseases of connective tissue: rheumatism, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, etc. Glomerulonephritis can be both acute and chronic.
