I am on stage 5 of kidney failure, dialysing 3 time a week for 4 hours. Who can help me stabilise my kidneys and get off dialysis..

Thank you

some people with kidney failure have recorded almost miraculous results using cordyceps fungus . Do some searching on interenet using "cordyceps + kidney +disease" .... etc etc.

Originally from Tibet. It is widely available now from laboratory grown operations. I do not know which is the best brand, or source to recommend.

I have had no experience treating kidney disease with it. It is worth a shot. It is fairly inexpensive.

Hi Ted,

My Father is 69 yrs old and was hospitalized in April 2014 due to high creatinine levels (8). The doctors informed us he has an enlarged prostrate problem and also suffers from Chronic Kidney disease. My father is a diabetic but since his hospitalization till date his sugar levels and bp are under control. Can you help me find a no-dialysis treatment for him. Dialysis is not a feasible option for him because doctors find it very difficult to find his blood-veins to inject required medications. Kindly help!

Dear Reena,

I am not Ted but I have read about using activated charcoal powder internally, and externally (as a poultice) over the kidneys instead of dialysis. The results are encouraging! You can read about it here:

You can buy activated charcoal tablets or capsules, but if you are going to have him taking it often, it would be easier to mix charcoal powder in water. 1-2 teaspoons in 8 ounces of water. Do not take charcoal internally within two hours of any medications.

Just today Earth Clinic has posted a video on making a charcoal poultice. These can be used over the kidney area. Perhaps the most convenient way to use them over the kidneys would be overnight.

Your father is blessed to have you watching out for him!

Try cordyceps mushroom for the kidney failure, and as a adaptogen substance in general. Some internet sources state it has had near miraculous powers in improving kidney function in some people with kidney failure. I have had no personal experience in using it to treat kidney disease.

Thank you very much for your kind and immediate knowledge sharing, much appreciate it. Many thanks for the useful links and the video.

Also, I'd like to know your thoughts on the 'Ginger Compression' technique being widely used to treat kidney failure. As mentioned in my first message, my father is diagnosed to have a kidney failure due to enlarged prostate leading to 1st stage cancer. Is Ginger Compression safe for patients with prostate cancer? Please advise.

I am hoping so much your words on my father being blessed stays true forever!

Dear Mama,

I watched your video, so simple and immensely useful. If you can, please share the time duration for the poultice to remain on the back for treating the kidneys.

Your kindness to this world wil be remembered by many forever!

Hi, I need your views on the consultations held by Dr. Sircus on usage of baking soda to heal CKD and Prostate Cancer. A quick response will be much appreciated!

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.

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, TN) on 04/03/2014

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. 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,

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.

Re: Cortical Atrophy of Both Kidneys. You need to buy a can of artichoke hearts and eat them every day for two months minimum... Try spirulina too!

Hello Amit,

Concerning your daughter's kidney situation; more info would help...has the kidney been giving low function levels for 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 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.

I have Polycystic kidney with creatinine as 1.87mgpl, high blood pressure in the range of 110 - 150, stage 3 of Kidney disease. My doctor is giving Olsar H 40 gms tab in morning and Olsar 40 mg in evening. I want to reduce my Blood pressure level and also use nature cure to let the kidney degeneration stopped or prevented.

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.

I have an expunged kidney and need to know of a good diet, supplements, etc that I can do to relieve myself. The doctors won't tell you because they enjoy their income. Please let me know. Thank you, Teresa

Dear Sir. My father had a diabetic recently the kidney also got affected and creatinine value reached 5. As of now the creatinine value comes 1 and still shugar level also normal.

My question is any probability of failure kidney again and leads to majour problem. is there any necessary treatment is available now to reduce the risk of kidney failure again. How I should maintain the diate to my father.Regards, Sandeep

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.

Kathleen, what your mother is dealing with is serious. You cannot stop medication or substitute them "any old way". What you can do now is strengthen her system, by giving her good, healthy-for-her-conditions food.

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!

Kathleen: Take hawaiin spirulina, chlorella, absorbable colostrum, nondenatured whey isolate, raw cocoa powder, black chia seeds, cayenne, raw fermented skate liver oil, yucca powder, cold processed maca, expellar pressed coconut oil, freeze dried wild harvested alaskan blueberry, young green coconut water, and barley grass juice powders, raw wildflower honey, and make home made water kefir. 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.
