The function of the thoracic diaphragm has the potential and capability of increasing the efficiency of the kidneys by way of increasing their efficiency of filtration. The kidneys are the organs in the human that are responsible for removing wastes that are created from natural metabolic reactions in the body, as well as toxins, excess fluid, excess ions including acids and other substances that serve no useful purpose in the body. The excess accumulation of wastes in any system decreases the efficiency of the system, and when it comes to living systems such as the humanbody, the accumulation of wastes in the body can also negatively impact health. It is important to have healthy working kidneys in order to promote good health in the body. The kidneys promote good health by way of keeping the level of wastes in the human body’s blood stream low enough so that they do no appreciable harm to health. Basically, the kidneys act as a filter for the blood. Simply put, in the kidneys there are filtration membranes. Each of these filtration membranes in the kidneys is called a glomerulus (plural-glomeruli), and there may be a million of them in each kidney.
