If you have been a vegetarian for a long time are you up with the play regarding B12?.. If your not you might have to start taking a supplement as cell function could be getting compromised.

Hello, I've been reading posts on this page and I am very curious as to if you could help me. I'm 21, female, and currently my creatinine is 2.6 due to the kidney disease Townes-Brocks Syndrome. Is there anyway that I can naturally lower my creatinine level and begin repairing or try to repair my damaged kidney tissue? Thank you for your time, K.

Dear everybody here:) Yesterday I've been searching on internet forums about kidneys failure and dialysis asking the Universe to send me any sign or informations that would help me to solve my problem. And I'm more than grateful as I've got to the forum about kidneys problems, dialysis, treatment, people writing about their problems, but those who are who are positive and trying to heal themselves even though doctors and others say it is not possible and that we should only expect it get worse every day.

I have found so many forums already but unfortunatly they have been only people saying about their problems and sharing what the doctors say about treatment and giving them no hope for cure. Me myself I'm on dialysis for more than 3 years and I just KNOW and believe it is POSSIBLE to heal myself and get my precious health back again! :) I'm in very good shape, as I'm taking really great care of myself. As a former martial artist for over 20 years I'm working out, doing yoga, chi-kung and mediatations and thanksgivings :) and have strong belief there is a chance to get off dialysis( and without needing transplant) and be healthy again! My Krea is around 700, Urea around 12-15. (dialysis are 3 times a week for 4 hours). Dear Melanie I have found you on this forum and your words gave me soo much hope and put a more light to my life knowing that healing is really possible that it is not only something I made up in my mind and waiting for miracle to happen! :)

I would love to ask you whether you would be so kind and let me know if you can help me in any way. I would apprecaite from all my heart! :) I don't know what more informations would you need for any consideration of my health condition and finding out whether you would be able to help me in any way. I greatly appreciate your time and consideration, can't even express how much I treasure it!

With Love

4 cups of a herbal tea are sipped each day. The herbs in the tea are Golden Rod, Bedstraw and Yellow Dead Nettle in equal parts. For each 1/4 litre of water add one heaped teaspoons of herbs. The tea is an infusion (herbs are placed in boiling water and are kept in for 4-5 minutes). To 3 of the cups you have to add 1 teaspoon of Swedish Bitter/ cup.

Horsetail sitz bath, lasting 20 min, are taken. 100 gram of herbs/ bath are coald soaked overnight, heated in the morning, strained and the liquid added to the bath water. Water can be reused so that 3 sitz baths can be made from one lot of herbs. Warm Horsetail poultices are applied overnight and Swedish Bitter as compresses is applied to the kidney region for 4 hours during the day. Before applying the compress the skin is covered with lard/ Calendula ointment. After removing the compress apply baby poweder on the skin. In case of skin rash reduce the time or skip applying the compress until skin is healed.

For more info on the herbs see

You should also consider acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Just found this and thought of you Zuzana:

Susun Weed in her book, "Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year, " highly recommends drinking both nettles and raspberry leaf tea throughout pregnancy. She specifically recommends drinking nettle tea during the last month of pregnancy to insure that large amounts of vitamin K are in the blood for the birth.

She recalls a woman who was told she would need to be put on a dialysis machine and used nettles tea as a part of her therapy to rebuild her kidneys, thus avoiding the dialysis machine. According to Weed: "Since the kidneys must cleanse 150 percent of the normal blood volume for most of the pregnancy, Nettles' ability to nourish and strengthen them is of major importance. Any accumulation of minerals in the kidneys, such as gravel and stones, is gently loosened, dissolved and eliminated by the consistent use of Nettle infusions."

You may want to try Horsetail and Nettles which are both good for the kidneys, as well as Parsley. I've seen people do kidney cleansing, if you can find an Herbalist with a cleanse. I did one when I was having problems urinating, and it worked wonders. You can also do lemon and olive oil... to flush the kidneys.

Aoa, Ali Ahmed, I hope you might have heard about Rehman Foundation in Lahore. Name of the Homeopath Doctor is Waqar Ahmad, he visits different cities in Pakistan and abroad as well. My mother is taking medicine from this guy and by the grace of Almighty she has been saved from dialysis. Her creatinine level was at 5. 8 which came down to 3, urea nitrogen was way up to 90 and came down to 28, but these all reduced in two months. There are many patients who got better than this. I am just referring him as it might be helpful for you or others.

They are also very cooperative in terms of cost.

His address is Rehman Foundation, 133-G, Model Town, Lahore

The best way to find a cure for anything now is the internet.... It's like a huge encyclopedia.... In the search box at top of page... Type in disease and then natural cure.... Like this:

Kidney Disease natural cure or herbal cure or homeopathic cure....

They sound pretty sick... I would check into homeopathy... I've seen tremendous miracles with it.... Complete turnarounds in disease overnight.... Chronic diseases are a little tougher... But search it out and maybe consult a homeopath in your area. Good luck

I have been told that I have early stages of polycystic kidney disease. The creatinine levels are 1. 33 and 'normal' is 1. The dr told me there is nothing I can do or take to reverse this or keep it level other than high blood pressure meds and to stay away from OTC meds. I feel fine and have no pain or tenderness anywhere.

Is there something I can take naturally that will lower blood pressure and help the kidneys not get worse?

Thanks, Lynda

Seven years ago I was rushed to the ER with unprecedented HBP, failing kidneys and soaring levels of creatinine. I had contacted a super virus & had been under years of stress. I was offered a Pastor, because the docs did not think I would live through the night. Fortunately I had an extensive training in Alternative Healing in my youth. I did REFLEXOLOGY on my feet and focused on the extremely tender kidney point, which is located in the inner upper arch of the foot.

Look on-line for exact located of kidney point on feet. If you have sick kidneys the kidney point will and should hurt as you massage it. As you heal the kidneys, the area will become less tender. It is a sign of recovery. I got swiftly better in the ER as I rested and rubbed my kidney pressure point over the ensuing week. My creatinine levels dropped dramatically. The doctors were confounded by my recovery. But they did not know REFLEXOLOGY is one of the most ancient healing arts on the planet and was practised by the Egyptians. Reflexology is depiected in heiroglyphics and pictures inside many of the pyramids. Those Egyptians lasted a LONG TIME!!

After a few days I was discharged from critical care and now live healthily in California. After recovery, I highly suggest cardio-vascular exercise for fifty minutes a day, because according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the healthier the lungs are, the healthier the kidneys will be. I am going to supplement my regime now with some of the excellent suggestions on this site, like acv, mimosa, comfrey and radish leaves. I have already seen spectacular results with cayenne, garlic and lemon. I am happy to hear from people. willowleaf33(at) I also know some awesome remedies for infertility and know how to completely eliminate the pains of childbirth naturally, using pressure points. God/Goddess has been good to me. Be blessed!

Willow, this reminds me of Anais Nin's premature still born deliver nightmare. Anais had spent hrs in delivery with no luck at all and the head nurse and physician had become VERY irritated at the entire situation... Until she screamed out at them all to leave her alone and stand back. As she settled into her center, she made an automated response of tapping her index finger in a circular motion around the protruding belly, she continued this for a few minutes and easily birthed a still baby.

My 87 year old mother is at stage 4 with kidney failure. She also has low protein. She lives in a nursing home with controlled meds and food. Her doctor has been very good letting us bring her whatever we want to. I have her on Keifer yogurt drink daily for the C-diff in her colon. I need to find something like Mimosa to bring her that the staff would be able to give her everyday. It has to be ready to use like a tincture but I can't find it. They don't recommend dialysis for her. Time is running out so please help.

After 3 years of telling Drs. I had a kidney issue, they finally did an ultrasound and found a spot. Now I am waiting to hear if it's cancer, a cyst, or a stone. Will castor oil packs help with any of these? I have flank pain which comes and goes, puffy eyes & swollen hands upon waking, and excessive thirst. I only drink water and cranberry.

My mother has been sick for my whole life, always in and out of hospitals and on all kinds of medications. Recently she's become worse than ever before, but I believe she really wants to get better this time and she understands now that it takes healing the whole body from the inside. She was an alcoholic for year and now has scerosis of the liver. It seems like she has dropsy because her arms and legs are very thin as she rarely eats and drinks little water, but her midsection is very, very bloated and has been for the past 30 years. No doctor has ever been able to tell her what is causing that. To me, it seems like it's all of the issues she has with digestion.

She just got out of the hospital this morning after getting 3 blood transfusions and a whole lot of saline water pumped into her through an IV. They said that she has kidney dysfunction. Not surprising, I understand the kidney is the last step before waste is excreted in the urine and since her digestive system isn't working the way it should, her kidneys are under a lot of stress. The doctor put her on a medication called lactulose, which I read is to treat constipation (she poops multiple times a day, usually very yellow and sometimes diarrhea) and also to treat elevated blood ammonia. I assume she's supposed to take it for the blood ammonia. I'm taking care of her now and making her juice and shakes of fresh vegetables and some fruits, making her salads, fresh eggs, raw milk and butter, hearty grains once a day, and making sure she drinks enough water. I'm also giving her apple cider vinegar and aloe vera gel. Besides all that, she needs to stay away from alcohol and we're hoping she will for good this time. What else can I be doing to help her and what are some causes of elevated blood ammonia?

Desiree, her problem is liver failure not kidney (ok she may have kidney failure too I'm not sure) but yellow stools are a symptom of liver not kidney failure. Also kidney failure patients aren't given regular Lactulose liver patients are. Lactulose is an OTC laxative but it is very important for liver failure. It helps the gut dispose of excess toxins without it the toxins will circulate and cause brain damage (hepatic encephalopathy) in a surprisingly short amount of time.

Hello all! I have a good friend who has had kidney problems for a while. He just discovered that he has several cysts on his kidneys and they have started to calcify. I know k2 is good for this, but I was wondering if anyone else has some advice. My friend and I would greatly appreciate it!

Hi Kalya... One of the best herbs for removal of stones and decalcifying is Chanca Piedra. It's English name is "Stonebreaker" and for good reason -- this herb is well known to get rid of both gallstones and kidney stones in the human body. Chanca Piedra also has a plethora of other benefits -- including liver and kidney support -- and is completely safe to take.

I used Chanca Piedra for liver and kidney support during my candida problems -- and as an encore I also dumped all my gallstones which I didn't know I had!! Read about the many benefits of Chanca Piedra here:

Chanca Piedra Research

Also, using Ted from Bangkok's alkalizing remedies -- my favourite being a whole lemon/lime with 1/4 -1/2 tspn Baking soda in a half glass of water once or twice a day -- will also help to prevent stones. And taking magnesium (as mag chloride or mag citrate) -- 250 mgs twice a day will also work to regulate and reduce any excess calcium in the body.

I now grow Chanca Piedra in my garden in the Philippines. I take a decoction of this herb once a month to keep my calcium in check. I'm over 60 years old with no aches or pains now. It simply works.

Thank you Bill! I will definitely pass the information on; but I want to make sure that this will aid with renal calcification, not kidney stones. He thought he had kidney stones but the doctors told him that he has several cysts attached to his kidneys, and removal might not be possible at this point.

Hi Kayla... The two main supplements that remove calcium are the Chanca Piedra and the Magnesium. Chanca Piedra works to clear all forms of excess calcium safely from the body and also acts like a mild diuretic in this respect. And Magnesium properly regulates the calcium/potassium balance within the body's cells.

I suspect your friend with the kidney problem has excess calcium with low magnesium intake in his diet, which is why he/she is having calcified kidney cyst problems. Calcium in excess within the diet is also acidifying for the cells/blood, which is why I recommended Ted's alkalizing lime/lemon remedy. What would also help your friend is to stay away from dairy products like milk, yoghurt, cheese etc and to avoid all fortified calcium foods -- to avoid the excess calcium intake. All western food nowadays is too over-fortified with calcium.

Hi Ted
I live in the usa and from your past postings it seems like vitamin d4, kidney bean pod and lemon and baking soda are some of your favorite choices to restore kidney health, this brings me to my question in the usa I am having a difficult time of sourcing d4 and kidney bean pods , might you have any suggestion on where these can be purchased?
Thank you for everything you are doing,

Aloha Ted,
My husband has schizo-affective disorder and his kidneys have been assaulted twice by psych meds. The first time in 2001 with lithium toxicity which opened my eyes to blind trust and then May 2010 with neuroleptic malignant syndrome from risperdal 3mg after taking it for 10yrs. His liver bled out, his kidneys failed and did 7 days of dialysis, was in drug induced coma for 10days on life support and spent 12 days in ICU and 21 in the hosp. His muscles dissolved due to rhabdomyolysis. He only takes felodipine Er for high blood pressure due to kidney damage and no psych meds only amino acids, herbs. No psych drugs and contoling the manic swings are the worst he goes up not down.

Do you have any suggestions as to improve his kidney function. I'm considering aloe vera. He needs also to put muscle back on. He has a needle phobia so all tests since leaving the hosp. have not been done only a 24 hr creatinine clearance and that was back in July with his ur creatinine was 2.0g/period on a scale of .8-2.0. His protein an albumin were also high and a high alb/cre ratio also high. He takes a good vitamin combo with high quality B and C. With much appreciation. Cheryl

I have developed Cryoglobulins Vasculitis and MPGN. My doctors have tried chemo with negative results and now want to injuct me with Rituxineb. Can anyone offer help with controlling the systems of this rare kidney disease? It has attacked my sisuses (nose bleeds) and kidneys (i.e. Proteen leaking in urine). Only about 3 people in 1,000,000 come down with this disease.

Dear Shutton72,
Cryoglobulins Vasculitis is caused by Hepatitis C virus in 80% of CV. So You should attack the virus rather than try to treat the symptoms. You can take L-Lysine as well as Lomatium extract. Wish you good health.

[YEA]   "The best cure for any bacteria or virus removal is Jim Humbles latest protocol usage of MMS. You can find all the information at his web site there he has links for every ailment. The previous replier is correct, you must stop the disease at the source not the symptom!

We have been using MMS for over two years now and have been enjoying great disease and virus free living! We also continue to take it randomly as a maintenance program rather than only when we 'feel' something coming on...

Shutton72... I too have cryoglobulinemia, what is known as essential mixed cryo, which is secondary to the hep C virus. The ongoing issues were a rash, neuropathy in my feet, Raynaud's, as well as extremely painful and debilitating rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. Basically all autoimmune issues.

I will not take the interferon, which is pretty useless against genotype 1 HCV, so I knew I had to vamp up my health somehow.

When my symptoms became almost intolerable a year or so ago, I overnight switched to a 100% raw diet. I had seen a testamonial on Dr. Jim McDougal's website that convinced me it was worth a try. Without knowing much, I started living on blended smoothies and juiced drinks, with lots of salads and healthy homemade dressings. I began sprouting mung beans, and alfalfa seeds, and within a short while growing wheatgrass for juicing. Within the first 2 weeks all my symptoms were completely gone and I felt better than I had in years. I also did body brushing every day, and enemas a couple times a week. Colonics would have been helpful as well. I did have some detox symptoms for several days, but because I was a fairly clean eater to begin with, it wasn't as bad as some have it.

Now a year later I am 25 pounds lighter, and really enjoy this lifestyle. After the first few months I began eating pastured eggs in an omelet with lots of veggies a few times a week with no bad results. I use a dehydrator to make chips and wraps for yummy veggie sandwiches or guacamole, and am happy with frozen blueberries and coconut cream for dessert. It is quite a change, but gradually has become second nature.

If you are interested, there are many good raw chefs on youtube and the internet - just google raw food.

I hope this helps. I know of so many people who have been given a new lease on life with this simple and basic lifestyle. Even if you just regard it as something temporary, after a few months you will be able to easily tell which foods work for you just by listening to your body. Good Luck! You can get well - just give your body a chance.

My husband is having kidney problems. They suggested dialysis. He refuses, we tried the baking soda, now he has terrible water retention, he has high blood pressure also. He has got really low kidney funtion. Is there something you can suggest for the kidney, high blood pressure, and water retention? He thought maybe the baking soda caused the retention. Thank you, I'm desperate.

Large quantities of raw Celery or in the form of Celery juice is good for high blood pressure and kidney cleansing. It works perfect for me with no side effects.

Interesting.... A while ago there was a lady here advising Celtic Sea Salt for cherry angiomas but unfortunately she never said how much she takes. Does one take one pinch with each glass of water or three pinches in one glass once a day? Living in France I have Sel Marin de Guarande in every supermarket! Funny enough I never thought that it was any different from any other salt till that lady referred to it...

Hi dana x dandelion is a very good herb, for fluid retention. You should, if possible, find them growing wild. If not you can go to a health shop, and find them, boxed as dandelion coffee/or tea. This is a wonderful herb and is brilliant diuretic, as well as a healing herb for many illnesses. I have complete compassion for your husband's suffering as I also have kidney problems myself, and the pain he's suffering is horrendous!!! Anyway, if your going to pick the wild dandelion's yourself, what you need to do is, remove the leaves from the plant, and leave them to dry out naturally. Once they turn brown, and crunchie, scrunch them up and put a heaped teaspoon per cup to brew for 1 minuet. Then drink Do this 4-6 times daily. Also, put 3 drips of vinegar in the water {any vinegar will do} while you soak them, before draining and drying them, use only pure water if possible, or buy a distillation unit{I use a waterman 400 myself)
Or spring water, from your nearest store. This is because the amount of nasties in tap water, and I have learned from personnel experience what crap is being piped threw the regular tap water, you would not belive what was in my distillation unit after I used it for the first time, eeugged!!!! Anyway I hope this helps with your darling husbands ailments, and gives you the strength to carry on. Unfortunately everyone forgets how hard it is for the people who look after you irregardless of the effect, it may be having on you. But true love will open their eyes and mind, if you've got the guts to tell them how hard things have become for your physically and mentally too. I SEND YOU LOVE, HUGS AND HEALING THOUGHTS LOVE ANDREA C X X X

My husband was diagnosed with ESRD about 2 years ago, he is 36 years old, and hadn't had any signs of the disease when he was diagnosed. We have 3 young children, his kidney's are functioning @ 17 percent and nephrologist are advising that he will probably soon have to be put on dialysis or have a kidney transplant. When he was about 6mos old he was overdosed with baby aspirin, and he turned black. They weren't sure if he would live through it, while I do not know that this caused his kidney problems. I do think that it may have largely contributed to it.

I was wondering if there is anything we can do to reverse the disease, and possibly cure his kidney disease all together, since the baby aspirin may have been the original culprit. He has always had proteinuria, even as a young child, but doctors never knew why. Please advise me. Thanks and be blessed!

I'm sorry to hear about your family's situation. I don't know anything about treating kidney disease, but if I were in a similar situation I would immediately adopt a raw vegan diet. You should read more about the raw food movement and diet.
Posted by Mireille
Cumming, Ga, Usa
It is really true than raw vegan diet can be excellent to resolve everything. However, not everyone can stand it. So I often recommend also to cook some vegetables very lightly, just for a few minutes, timing needing to be adjusted depending on the vegetable and the individual, and the diet is much better accepted. Dpending on the type of kidney damage, not everything can be eaten. Check with your medical doctor.
