Bill from San Fernando, from reading this web site you seem to be somewhat of an authority on Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid powder/crystals. I am looking for advice on a friend's Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. Vit C/Ascorbic acid seems to be a viable option for stabilizing/reversing this disease. Certainly, alkalizing would help also. I personally, take the 1/2 tsps of ascorbic acid and baking soda 2 - 3 times a day but, I have normal functioning kidneys. My concern for her would be that the baking soda would contain too much sodium for someone with stg 3 CKD. Is this a viable concern? What could she use in place of the baking soda with the acsorbic acid in order to help buffer and alkalize that would not contain sodium? Your knowledge and assistance is greatly appreciated.

I'm not seeming to get a response from Bill on this. So Maybe Ted of Bangkok or someone else with more knowledge than I have would like to assist with this question, please?

My daughter is 48, she has had open heart surgery at 37 and has been in pretty poor health. Two years ago, her bowels became loose and doctors could not tell her why. She was diagnosed two weeks ago with level 5 kidney failure,

If anyone has any advice as to which supplements would help, please let me know, this a wonderful site and God bless those who contribute to this forum.

This is what I read:

From within the traditional Chinese paradigm, marrow bone broth nourishes our kidneys, supports our vital essence (chi), and builds blood. Bone tissue relates to the kidneys according to Chinese medical theory. So, given the theory of like supports like, consuming bone tissue will support the kidneys and therefore the bones (including the teeth).The Chinese medical perspective includes the adrenals as part of the system they call the kidneys. So, bone broth directly supports adrenal function. It is recognized that the adrenals perform so many hormonal functions vital to our immune health. Adrenal fatigue is another one of those ?elephants in the living room? that so many of us in the real food movement are talking about yet remains unheard of in mainstream media...Dr. Shanahan even suggests that the nutritional matrix in bone broths may actually help patch the holes in the kidney tissue that cause the kidneys to function less optimally.

HI YA'LL DOIN, me not so good. The back brace has my lymph fluids trapped in my lower legs and they look like Dumbo the elephant's legs. Going to a physical therapist, which is helping.

What is so disturbing to me is the MRI for my crushed vertebrate revealed that both my kidneys are in cortical atrophy. Don't think that is good and would appreciate any advice you birds have. I am now fighting a crushed vertebrae, endema of my legs and now a kidney problem. Don't think ACV will solve my old age problems.

Do what you can when you are young. Things don't respond so well when you are long in tooth.

Hello Robert Henry, 'ol buddy;

Re: all your problems

First: Cordical Atrophy of both kidneys.

Second: Edema of the legs.

Third: Crushed vertebra.

The cordical is the cortex or the outer layer and is usually associated with the brain but can also relate to kidney. So the MRI showed the outer area of both kidneys is atrophying. Dangerous and potentially lethal as I'm sure the MDs have told you.

The Edema is the big clue that tells us the cause of the atrophy. I have a 91 year old pal who takes lots of nutritional stuff and has for 40 years. I went to see him in the assisted care facility and there he was ... laid up with special wrappings around his legs... legs lifted; Edema.

What is going on, I asked him. With all the great nutritionals you swallow why should you have a circulation problem? And after talking to him, that was just about the only problem he had. His mind is still sharp; he looks good (outnumbered 7 to 1 female to male residents he is the center of attention at the Saturday night "events" there at the Facility).

But I digress.

I insisted on reviewing his nutrient inventory. Mercy. He takes more pills than I do, and I take 40 or so a day.

HOWEVER, the one I was looking for, and there were some exotic ones in his "box" was missing.

What, dear reader, will facilitate the bloods circulation more than any other?

What, is the greatest cause of Edema? Circulatory insufficiency. And as to the previous question...what will facilitate blood circulation, and vein and arterial dilation, and elimination of inflammation that can restrict circulation and even plaque removal which certainly will cause Edema...

I am sure the astute reader and you, Robert Henry, know the answer to this question. But do you know what? My old friend, the one in the nursing home was not, I say NOT taking that fundamental...absolutely bottom line essential vitamin. And literally, within 10 days of adding that ONE nutrient to his regimen he was nearly Edema free.

And...and...watch this: Lack of blood flow as evidenced by the Edema MIGHT also be the cause of the atrophying kidneys. May Be....

THE KEY is NATURAL VITAMIN E....Lack of proper circulation is killing you. It can only help in your recovery of the vertebra. If surgery, E can help the healing.

The Doctors "Shute"... brothers... and Canadian physicians back in the 50s were talking about Edema and Vitamin E. Circulation and Vitamin E. Clot removal and Vitamin E.

If this were me, I'd start with 200 IUs daily of Natural E (d alpha tocopherol, and not the dl form which is synthetic). After a few weeks, increase to 400 IUs, and two weeks later same increase and two weeks later same increase. I take 1000 IUs daily and have for ... oh, 30 years or so. And make sure your are taking Magnesium and Arginine. 500 mg of each. (I take 5 thousand mg of Arginine.) Some folks, if facing big circulatory problems will take DMSO cream and mix in Vitamin E and apply topically to the effected areas; goes straight to the site, through the skin. And some folks, if the problem is not resolved, will increase the oral dosage to 2000 IUs.

Robert Henry, you are REALLY smart. Now, try to think of anything else to improve circulation, because (re the kidney) whatever the cause is (Cysts?), the improved circulation on the outside of the Kidney (Cortex = Cortical) will benefit both that problem and the Edema.

Now as many nutrients as you do take, maybe you'll tell me you are taking 1, 000 natural Vitamin E. But if that is the case, then SOMETHING is stopping it from acting. Are you sure it is natural? REALLY synthetic (sure it's cheap) but it won't work. Magnesium? Enhances the E and so does Vitamin C and selenium. Robert Henry, think now; you've helped thousands. You can figure this out. Don't give up.

You are loved and we need you.

And one more thing: Act fast.

Your old pal,

And YOUR student,

dave

HI U DAVE, , , , , , , you hit it on the head. I take a toe sack full of supplements but do not specifically take Vitamin E , but will get it tomorrow.

Appreciate your counsel and words of encouragement. As you might imagine, I'm pretty low these days and you have given me a lift.

Got the boys coming tomorrow to finish our Bamboo Crappie Condo's. Hope to fill the freezer during the spring spawn.

To Dave: as always enjoy reading your helpful informative posts. This is only a curious question not meant to imply anything-if you follow 80/10/10 diet why 40 pills a day? I take supplements too, don't get me wrong, just wondering what you take? thanks also, is the 80 raw? what are the 10/10.thanks

Hey there Cindy;

Re: Your question in reference to my post to Robert Henry..

First, thank you for the nice compliment. I am such a believer in natural E to ward off cardio and circulation related issues.

Now your question was, I think, what 40 pills do I take and then you asked about the 80/10/10 diet with the 80 being raw.

Well, I am a patient of Dr Nick Gonzales of Manhattan, and he did want me on a more raw diet but classified my metabolic type as "meat eater."

But I don't follow the 80/10/10 even though I should and could even under Dr Gonzales' classification.

I am a terrible sinner. I eat bad things and this is a major fault of mine. Very little exercise (I adhere to the HIIT method...High Intensity Interval Training.) I practice flexibility movements and shadow boxing from the "old days" to keep up agility and speed (or a semblance of it). I practice elementary karate kicks.

And, as mentioned, I take a lot of nutrients. Were, you asking for a list of what I take? Sorry, I wasn't following exactly but just listed my list of what I do and what I shouldn't do.

If you want the list I'll be glad to do so.

Cindy: Dave takes supplements. I follow the 80/10/10 program. The idea behind the program is that raw organic fruit is going to have more energy than in regular food because of the enzymes, humic fulvic acids, xeronines, and trace minerals. We believe this is the best food program. People can eat as much raw organic fruit as they want whenever they want. The only two technical aspects are soaking nuts and seeds for protein and oil and getting the proper ratio of carbs to oil. I would encourage you to try the program.

Hello Amit,

Concerning your daughter's kidney situation; more info would help...has the kidney been giving low function levels for long...is this a KNOWN congenital issue?

Full function of one kidney is perfectly ok unless tumor obstruction is at work to cause dual kidney failure. I am presuming you are sure no tumors at work in her lower track...correct?

What are her creatinine levels? Should be OK since other kidney is functioning all right.

My experience with kidney issue is go slow until you are sure what the situation is...a person can live quite well with one kidney.

Could be infection in that one kidney...if me I would at least take some form of anti viral/bacterial/fungal. In India I don't know what is common in herbal medicine. Here in States I use Colloidal silver to kill infections.

I've seen a kidney "come back"...low function does not mean it is gone...it can overcome obstructions, infections etc. That is why I say don't jump to surgery too fast until you get second opinions.

The little Neem Tree is godsend for treating infection in India as it is a somewhat abundant native species. The leaves are the beneficial part.

Vishal: Make green smoothies with 1oz baby leaves every hour and eat raw fruit from Organic India. Soak the peels in water for 1 day, drink the water, do this for 4 days, throw the old peels away, or eat them, get some new peels, and repeat the procedure. Most of the nutrients are in the peel. The continuous flow of nutrients simultaneously nourishes and detoxes. They have to be organic or they'll contain pesticides.

Sandeep: Eat organic and grassfed whole foods raw. Cooking denatures enzymes. Conventionally grown foods are low in nutrients and high in pollutants. Eat 80% carbs, 5% fiber, 10% protein, and 5% oils by weight.

Read the sections on Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne Pepper for heart too. Is she over weight and/or eating foods she is allergic too? Near about everything wrong with us comes from what we put in our mouths. It seems food allergies cause an inflammed system that by the senior years, affect the heart, kidneys, vascular system, stomach, skin.... you name it.

Good health is always a matter of stepping back and assessing what you have been doing to your body for years. If this was my mother and I had control of what she ate, I would put her on a 6-8 oz meat (protein to rebuild), high veggie and (low sugar) fruit diet. I'd cut out ANYTHING made with wheat, corn, rice (nutrient blockers), milk and sugar. I'd then get her drinking a 4-8 oz glass veggie smoothie daily with perhaps a multi-vitamin she can tolerate. The ACV (2 tsp morning and before bed) and extra Vit-C (about 200-500mg twice daily) with food would help my mother getly detox as the veggie/low-sugar fruit smoothies rebuilt her nutrient bank. I would include sweet potates and avacadoes in her diet as they have high nutrients and good fat. If she not allergic, I would give my mother 1 tsp of coconut oil in her coffee or tea each morning to get rid of funguses and shore her up against viruses. I would borrow or buy an encumbent bike and get her doing 8min of alternating low resistance/harder resitance exercise every other day; keeping her pulse within her age bracket. This would greatly build her stamina and energy. I would also ask my mother for her patience as we set about bringing her body back to optimum health, naturally. I would do all this with the consent of my mother's doctor. A well thought out and finally executed plan can pull most of us from the brink if we really and truly want our health back. We, each of us and no one else, must want great health so badly that we say, "Enough! I WANT A LIFE WITHOUT PAIN AND PILLS! I'm going for it! "

Blessings upon You and Your Mother!

PEACE AND HEALTH! CAITLIN

Study the andrew kim blogs and watch raw food videos. Have her drink 1 cup of water every hour with the superfoods and honey. When she wakes up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom give her some more.

Hi I am a type 1 diabetic with stage 2 kidney disease I have been recently diagnosed with the last year. I have been monitoring blood sugars cut of all protein accept for a very small pecs of chicken or fish with a salad or veggies for dinner a small garden salad for lunch, oatmeal with a teaspoon of flax seed for lunch I walk almost everyday of the week for 30 mintues to an hour drinking only water, monitoring blood sugars and blood pressure blood sugars 100-150 blood pressures 118/79 I not sure what I'm doing wrong but it seems like the protein bubbles in my urine are increasing. I do not want to advance to stage 3 of kidney disease nor dialysis. I have no job my mother and father both died from diabetes last year a month apart from one another. I am only 34 years old I need to stop the protein in my urine and stop Ckd advancement- is there a natural remedy or tea? I have tried everything I have elimated almost all the salt in my diet, just natural salt in fruits and veggies. Could the increase in bubbles come from my salad dressing 30 mg of sodium? I take all my meds.. Please help me!! I have another set of test to take next month I'm scared! I have tried everything I know. Thank, P

I understand you're scared. Finding a good enough solution can help that fear diminish a great deal.

Both diabetes types, as well as the kidneys, respond extremely favorably to Vit C. One doctor made remarks to the effect that, diabetes itself is the direct result of lack of ascorbic acid, thus causing metabolism problems, then insulin problems, which lead to the development of type II diabetes.

As for the kidneys, here's a quote about doing ascorbic acid 2 grams each two hours:

"Here, then, we have a situation where the complete genito-urinary tract from the renal tubules to the urethra would be continuously bathed in a fluid that is bactericidal and virucidal, and has detoxicating and wound-healing properties. Infections of the urinary tract should be more easily controlled through the use of this regimen. If antibiotics or other medicaments are employed, the ascorbic acid should aid and potentiate their effects. There do not seem to be any predictable contraindications to its use as an adjuvant treatment. The continued presence of high levels of ascorbic acid in the urine in contact with all these tissues should prevent any incipient infections from developing."

The only addition I would make to my previous post, is that with kidneys, one proceeds with the application of ascorbic acid more slowly, and ought to drink two quarts of water per day-- at least that's what The Healing Factor said. The water will prevent the buildup of calcium, which causes kidney stones. Apparently, with sufficient drinking of good water, the ascorbic acid then is helpful at not producing stones. Do not use calcium ascorbate... Has calcium. Also, it is important that the water be distilled or reverse osmosis type water, not tap, not spring water. Distilled can even be helpful in drawing off excess calcium stores. Hope this gives you some hope! --T.

Hello, I'm stage 5 CKD... For the last 2 years. My doctor told me last month to keep doing what I'm doing. I tried a lot of folk remedies, unfortunatelly I didn't discover them early enough to stop my disease in an early stage. My GFR is less than 15, but I have no symptoms.

What I'm doing lately:

1. I'm taking daily Curcumin powder (or capsules). Up to 3-4 gramms is safe but I didn't took more than 2 gramms/day. Don't take it if you have gallbladder stones, as it might trigger crisis.
2. I'm taking 2-3 capsules Cordyceps Synepsis.
3. Herbal teas: mix stinging nettle, horsetail, marshmellow, couchgrass and lavender, equal parts, 2 tsp/250 ml boiled water twice a day.
3. Cut down on meat, dairy, cheese, eggs, not completely but way less than before.
4. Keep hydrated, sip at least 2 liters water through-out the day.
5. Daily walk for at least half an hour.
6. Having veggies and fruits when craving for a snack.
7. Eating home almost all the time, food made from scratch, no pre-cooked or frozen. Alcohool not more than 1-2 servings a week (stay away from spirits and beer)

What I did before:

Eating unhealthy, steaks, sausages, milk, alchool. I was prescribed slowly-slowly up to 10 pills a day. Since last year I've cut down almost all of them by myself, still taking atacand plus and rocatrol. My blood pressure is now 120/75 with little variations.

I hope my information will help you or any other people with this disease.

Sorin.

As if healing from psoriasis and arthritis is not hard enough I did a stool sample test and it came back positive for Klebsiella. I did 2 weeks of Uva ursa and now on to Berberine and also started for 1 week hydrogen peroxide 35%. Seems to be not helping at all. Im getting worried and thinking of getting antibiotics for my kidneys have been hurting for quite some time and I think the bacteria is in kidneys. Any thoughts? Thanks Brad.

Ps I was thinking of antibiotic then I will have to re build gut later, its seems like the logical option. I was gona do a water fast but considering I work outside everyday I dont think that would be very smart right now.

Do not do the Water Fast... It is too harsh on the body and can also cause internal damage. Try juicing for a day or 2, and eat plenty of green veg, Drink bottled spring water. Look at the bottom of the bottle, there will be a triangle, for no:1, or, pe1, ANY HIGHER LEAKS PLASTIC into your body.

I have suffered from gout for 10 years and during those years, I was taking Indocin to relieve the pain and suffering. Not knowing the effects of Indocin, it affected my kidneys and 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease. I was referred to Nephrologist and he told me that my creatinine level is 2.2, BUN of 40 and eGFR of 38. Forward to 2012 and I still have the same creatinine levels, BUN and eGFR but my Uric acid level is 5.3. I have dealt with my gout problem but I'm now dealing with Stage 3 Kidney Disease.

I'm 43 years old, not overweight, exercise regularly, quit eating meat, good physical shape and only eat vegetables and chicken for protein although I admit that I smoke 1 pack/week. I've read an article on the internet that taking Alpha Lipoic acid (300mg) and Nettle Leaf Tea twice a day will help me lower my creatinine levels. I took it for 2 months but it actually didn't do anything. I'm currently taking Allopurinol, Simasvatin and Lisinopril to control my gout, blood pressure and cholesterol. Can I still go back to normal BUN, creatinine levels and eGFR? What do I need to do? Please help? I don't want to take anymore medications 'coz I'm afraid that it will damage my organs in the future. Please give me some advise.

To reduce creatinine, you can supplement on these:

cinnamon, stinging nettle seed (very effective), Siberian ginseng, Dandelion root, Salvia Miltiorrhiza (called Dan Shen and used in TCM). Re Salvia M.:

Researchers have used salvia on patients who were on dialysis for kidney failure and found that it increased the rate of which creatinine was filtered and evacuated from the body. They also noticed that it enhanced the circulation to the kidneys as well.

You can easily get Salvia (powdered form) in most Chinese herbal shops. Some of the supplements are available at iherb. You can read up more of Salvia M. here: alternativehealing.org/dan_shen.htm

One very potent remedy for kidney infections is drinking a few cups of pomegranate juice every week - a recent finding from researchers in the M. East. You will need to get your doc to monitor your potassium level as the fruit contains high potassium. In India, pomegranate is regarded as a "complete pharmacy" owing to its wondrous virtues.

For kidney problems, the following are used in Ayurveda:

1. Neem [Azadirachta indica bark Powder]
2. Gokshura [Tribulus terrestris fruit powder]
3. Corn silk

Method: Put one tsp of each of the 3 above in 400 ml of water. Boil/Simmer until you have 50 ml left. Strain and drink the 50 ml filtrate.

Another great idea is to supplement on this patented TCM formula for the kidney. Some people have even reversed their diabetic condition from long term supplementation of the following:

SIX-FLAVOR TEA PILLS / Liuwei Dihuang Wan

It is easily available (typically in bottle of 200 pills) - in most Chinese herbal shops.
