I would go to Distilled Water for Kidney Failure, Get him to drink a Gallon a day. No Less, and more would actually work better. Distilled Water is what must be used to perform Kidney Dialysis. Big Pharma knows this... Kidneys are clogged and have been slowly dying off for years thus failing, this is Kidney Failure. Supplementation with Borax likely wouldn't have any deleterious effects.

@Gail who posted about stage III kidney failure in 2017 below,

I surprisingly found that I had stage III and in one month went to Stage II following what my kidney specialist advised. I followed very strictly. It isn't easy but then neither is dialysis. See a good Nephrologist. No more than 30 to 55 grams of protein a day, no extra salt, no dairy, low potassium no alcohol. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. This is what I do. Your Dr. will tailor a program to your needs. It is time to get serious.

When closing in on age 60, my doctor ran a bunch of tests, including kidney function. He was astonished at the results which said I had the kidneys of a 22 year old while he explained that the kidneys were an organ that was supposed to age with the body and asked me how I had done it. I simply said it must be all that distilled water I drink. He then wanted to know where I got my trace minerals and I told him "from Celtic Sea Salt and/or Himalayan Pink Salt." I put a small pinch in my water glass to remineralize it.

Lumbrokinase +

Both my kidneys were swelled up for 18 months while I searched frantically for answers. Every kidney link said it was infection. I tried various infection remedies until I decided to get lab test. It came back negative for infection.

I continue to search for answer on a zillion links with no answers. I finally came across doctor who said most ckd people die from heart attacks. I searched for which supplements used in kidney. They were all related to heart disease. I deduced from that it was blood clots in kidneys.

Nattokinase/serrapeptase didn't work. I needed a more powerful clot buster so tried Lumbrokinase, which I luckily bought 3 months before. It finally started taking down the swelling within 3 days. I was happy.

What pissed me off the most was that you have a zillion websites on kidneys and NOT one ever suggested that PAIN IN KIDNEY could be a BLOOD CLOT.

Have you ever tried to sleep with swelled kidneys. You don't easily.

I am currently trying to remove calcium from my soft tissues in hope of improving or regenerating my kidneys.

I use one capsule of Nutrusta Omega 3 DHA to help with proteinura and body.

I use 1 tsp of baking soda before bed. I have PH strips which tell me what urine is. This is so I can tell if I need more or less. I try to keep it above 7.0 or with some color of green.

I do think if excretions to kidney are too acidic, it will destroy kidney. That's why I think it stops progression. It has less to do with blood.

I used 2 capsules of Lumbrokinase 3 times a day until swelling subsided then try to eye ball it after that which is usually 0-2 capules per day.

I did not go to doctors for any diagnosis. I have no idea what stage my kidneys are in but I can feel when their under stress.

Improve your kidney function easily with acv and baking soda

My wife is a diabetic, with hypertension and COPD and deteriorating kidney function to go along with it, as it usually does as time goes on. Though I don't remember where I read it, we discovered how to IMPROVE her kidney function, not just stabilize it. I'm pretty sure it was a European study because the 'ingredients', simple as they are, were in metrics and had to be converted. Her kidney function was down to 20% at that point.

I started giving her 1/8 tsp of baking soda with 1 tbls of acv, in a glass of water... doesn't matter how much water. In 4 months of taking this most days, she was up to 31%. That's as high as we have been able to get it, but at least it stopped falling and the prospect of needing dialysis is no longer an urgent concern.

Why the acid and alkalizer combine to work so well, I can't say, but they work well together, and have for some years.

There has been tenderness in my lower back in the area of my kidneys for months. Fresh aloe vera gel, whole lemons in smoothies, and high dose ascorbic acid w/wo baking soda seem to have been the cause. I tried fresh lemon juice, Ted's lemon alkalizing remedy, baking soda in water, and raw apple cider vinegar with no improvement. At times it felt like a small stone may have moved.

Fresh raw purple cabbage (with fresh lemon juice and miso dressing) eliminated the discomfort the same day I ate it. About two cups of cabbage. It also increased urine output.

I have kidney infection for about 1,5 year. For me most usefull were not many water - only 0,5-0,8 litre per day, no garlic, no onion, no radish, no broccoli and all cabage family in raw, only very well cooked, because they irritate kidney. No orange, no lemon, grapefruit and all citrus fruits and NO VITAMIN C and multivitamins with vitamin C!!!! because vitamin C irritates kidney!!!

You can try to eat only buckwheat all day, 2-3 days per week with 0,5 l parsley or horsetail tea, and after this day you will notice that your kidney responsive to food and some supplements ... so don't use in this buckwheat days even all supplements, except vitamin D because maybe some of them irritate kidney.

Also essential vitamin D (if your situations worsen, try larger doses - 10000 vitamin D per day), NAC (2*600 mg per day) (for my kidneys it's a miracle), necessary to stengthen immunity (one month echinacea, other month astragalus, siberian ginseng etc.) Q10

I don't eat meat and dairy, so I don't know if my kidney liked them or not, but sometimes I eat fish and eggs and my kidney like them. Also my kidney like apples.

My kidney didn't liked Pau'd'arco. I tried it for immunity, but two times after taking one capsule 500 mg, my kidney were in pain. Also be very careful with species - turmeric OK, but black pepper NO. Cloves - OK, ginger - OK.

For my very useful site for supplements is

In this site I learnt about NAC and tried it. For my kidney NAC was very very useful - like miracle cure. Thanks to God. I bought the cheapest NAC from iherb.

I have never had any problems with Borax.

There are some that do. In our family of 6, none.

We have used it as the basis for all following therapies. Including Silver.

The thing I believe is problematic that most do not address is calcium. It is the devil. I have seen and experienced great things with the elimination of excess calcium and adding D3 and magnesium. Magnesium just displaces the candida. D3 gives the foundation to build on.

In our case, calcium was preventing anything from moving forward. Excess calcium exists in your circulation and joints. Without good circulation you prevent the remedies from working.

So, if you were my daughter, this is what I would do.

Take your borax water. In beverages or in a glass of water through the day. This removes excess estrogen from our environment and food and water. It provides boron a critical trace element. Fights candida. Helps displace some calcium.

I take baths all the time. Borax 1 cup and 2 cups of Epsom. Fish tank dechlorinator. 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. H2o2 oxygenates the body providing further relief from symptoms. We just came back from a trip. Our hot tub in the room was where I resided as often as possible. Double amounts to soak. Big tub!

My skin and hair are amazing for an old lady. Never have to exfoliate or any treatments of any kind. I had cystic acne and hamburger face for years. My girls use borax for every skin and beauty is first. Saturated borax water. Their friends are amazed at the difference it has made these last 5 years. We buy a case of borax. Dogs and people. All bathe in it. Since we put a fluoride filter on the shower they love their hair too. I realize these are not your issues. It illustrates how much we need that in and on our bodies.

Ted and Bill's book on Alkalinity and Bill's book on Candida are truly treasures. Real help. Real facts. Life changing information. These are the guides to overcoming the mess of ill health. They saved myself and my family.

Borax made all the difference for each of my family. From 19 yrs my Mom who just turned 81.

Saturated borax water recipe. About 2/3 cup of Borax in a 2 gallon bucket. Let stand for an hour or so. Dip fill spray bottles. Put some in a storage jar or 2 for washing hair or last rinse. Leave in hair to dry. To clean I add 5% ammonia for around the house or 1% hydrogen peroxide. I have thrown away all commercial cleaners. Including and especially bleach.

So every therapy we have done has always had borax water as part of the equation. We have not encountered any problems.

In reply to Becky (Ca),

If the colloidal silver you are using is not capped, the borax will cause it to agglomerate which will cause the silver to form into larger particles which are just about useless in terms of antibacterial and antiviral activity.

Add borax to a small amount of colloidal silver that you have and stir it well. If the CS changes color in any way, it is not capped.

I have had kidney stones for 28 yrs. In June of 2016 my nephrologist told me that I only had 34% us of my kidneys. He had me on 6 tablets a day of potassium citrate for the last 6 yrs. It had gotten worse over the last 6 yrs. and I figured it was due to menopause. I produce calcium oxlate stones. The nephorlogist told me my kidneys were calcified. I had been passing stones every 2-3 mos. I was always told by doctors to increase my citrate level and limit foods that are high in oxlates. After the doctors appt in June, I started researching calcification on the body. WoW, I found out that in the american diet we are getting to much calcium.

Here's the important part of my little story. I found out that calcium is hard and it needs magnesium to soften it, so it can get to the right places in the body that it needs to be in. Calcium can stay in the soft tissues, like the joints, kidneys, arteries, etc. I started taking a liquid ionic form of magnesium. I was on it for 6 mos. and when I went to the nephrologist he said that the percent usage of my kidneys was 39. It went up 4%. I went to the nephrologist 6 mos after this and the percent use of my kidneys was now 44. It went up 5% this time. In that year and 3 mos, now. I have not passed any stones. I had not had to go to the hospital either.

Sorry so long, I just wanted to put it out for people with stones or kidney disease. I understand that when you get close to having 20% use of your kidneys, doctor want to get you on dialysis.

In reply to Gail (Kingston, Ny),

Melatonin may be of help for you as it is kidney protective, can help to restore circadian rythyms which are often disrupted in CKD, antioxidant boosting and it can help with GERD associated issues while having an excellent safety profile and very low probability for allergic reaction because it is naturally produced in the body. Melatonin has many health benefits in the human body and does much more than just act as a sleep aid.

Here is an article discussing melatonin and esophogeal injury:

Another article discussing melatonin and the kidneys:

This should be worth discussing with your doctor to see if it is something you can take. Given the seriousness of your illness, your doctor's approval is needed and important to make sure melatonin will be compatible with the drugs and supplements you are currently taking.

Gail, Ted's remedies seem complicated. I was very ill when I started. My husband was sick, it drove me. For myself it did not. It was his blood clot and the results of the remedy in the first 24 hours. Using baking soda reacted with lime. Not taken separately.

Truthfully it takes some studying. I had to reread and reread. My mind was not working my health was poor.

May I suggest that you do the first things to give your body an optimal platform to build your health.

Ted's remedies are information dense. In 5 years we have seen a pattern of things that work. Yet if I had begun with the basics I would have had quicker and better results.

Because I like you had multiple problems and diagnoses. I found it overwhelming. You can write a response, so your in good shape. I would have been unable. I had to have no light no sound and everyone in bed to come upstairs to use the computer, I wore sunglasses as the screen hurt my eyes, the whir of the fan hurt my pain addled brain. I wrote every word I read as I had no short or long term memory.

Here is the culmination of my experience with utilizing Teds information.

First and foremost....remove fluoride from your body. This also removes excess estrogen, from our environment. Which inturn gives your body the opportunity to heal.

4 days a week. For women 1/8 tsp of borax in 1 liter of spring water. Use this water, to add to or make beverages throughout the day.

Detox and heal soaks. This is ideal in the tub, foot soaks help too. 1 cup of borax, 2 cups epsom, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1 cup hydrogen peroxide. 1 capful fish tank dechlorinator. Chlorine steam is deadly to the heart. Your largest organ is your skin. It absorbs nutrients readily and effectively.

That 20 minute or more soak. Removes fluoride, adds non acidic boron, magnesium sulfate, oxygenates your blood, bicarbonate helps alkalinity.

Your information sounds like you are desperately low on magnesium and trace minerals. Buy magnesium flakes. In a mason jar, 60% flakes, 50% spring water, cap an leave sit 1/2 hour, shake it you have magnesium oil. I fill a 4oz spray bottle and a 2oz dropper bottle. This applied to skin stings if you are low so if it does, you can do a few things to stop it. Apply castor or almond oil first or after. Add some water to site. Or add more mag oil and wait it will stop. It is uncomfortable but doable. Magnesium is involved in every system in your body, organs, bones, connective tissue, muscle, elimination and absorption.

Take mag oil 4 to 5 drops in water 2x a day. Provides approx. 250mg of magnesium chloride per dose. Or mag malate for runny stool types or mag citrate for constipated types. At least 250mg 2x a day.

The benefits are endless. In your case, needed. The sphincters that open and close in esophagus and organs need to be supple and strong. To keep acid in your stomach. To optimize your gallbladder, liver, pancreatic action, correct elimination in kidney, bladder. It further adds supple action to arteries and veins. It optimizes your heart muscle. Improves heart and therefore kidney function.

Chlorine in water and environment must be reduced. Sodium thiosulfate crystals, purchase online. From photographers supply. Some take a crystal, like a pill, before showers. Some take it before bed to sleep better. I used to add a crystal to every gallon of water for kitchen use. This was how we take borax too. 6 of us. I keep a gallon of water on sink I add 1/4 tsp borax to it in the am. 4 or 5 days a week. Just the first am one. The rest just get s.t.

I suggest you read Teds chapters for, Barretts and you other issues. You will find a repetition of of the same things that Ted recommends for 1 it will repeat in the next. The beauty of it is often the writer of question to him often has your issues or problems. Sometimes asking the question of Ted as if he were able to himself, answer.

Trace minerals, my favorite is 1/4 tsp of sea salt in a glass of water. If you do not like that, then you can purchase trace minerals as a liquid online. You will find your efforts improve with these in place.

Elimination is important. 1/4 tsp cilantro 2x a week in food or off a spoon removes metals. 2 tbsp lecithin at the same time removes bad vegetable oils and fats if taken at the same time. S.T. for chlorine. Borax for fluoride and excess estrogen. Apple cider vinegar reacted with baking soda to emulsify stones and debris in g.b. and other organs. The baking soda is needed to raise levels the g.b. cannot, due to our poor diets. Which then helps create the amount of bile needed to digest properly. Stopping bile duct obstruction. Then the baking soda lime or Apple Cider Vinegar drink goes further to clean out bladder and kidney. All this without herxing.

There is more. But these are foundational to health.

I also recommend Teds and Bills book on alkalizing to really understand human health.

Dr. Michael Holicks you tube video about vitamin D3 it is the first and foremost depleted nutrient in the world today. It changed our lives.

No aspartame, no msg, no vegetable oils, sugar, avoid all aluminum, plastics, coated pans.

This may help. Janet

Stage III Kidney Failure
Posted by Gail (Kingston, Ny) on 05/19/2017 10 posts

Thank you very much for referral to Ted's remedies. To be honest, there are some complications which may make this more difficult

One is the fact that I have Barrets Syndrome; I tried to control it with cold pressed aloe vera gel, but it gave me severe diarrhea which increased my irritable bowel syndrome I believe caused by internal hemmorhoids since childbirth. So, I had to take Nexium, yes, I know bad, but when I stop the Nexium I can feel burning in my esophagus.

I BP has been controlled after 2 aortic valve replacements with one pharma pill and an herbal remedy for 2 years. And I have just found out I also have osteoporosis.

Does anyone know if mineral water which is alkaline is OK for the kidneys. I drink it for alkalinity but have heard the minerals may be hard on the kidneys.

I did take sodium bicarb for a while but found it burning my esophagus and stomach, same with apple cider vinegar.

As well, I am prediabetic and have always had high genetic cholesterol; but, I am boiling a soup of Leeks, parsnips, turnips, 2 potatoes, carrots and celery and my HDL is now fabulous my MD says. Thank you Janet for your reply. My my, it's soooo complicated. Gail

Stage III Kidney Failure
Posted by Gail (Kingston, Ny) on 04/16/2017 10 posts

Thank you very much for your answers. I am sorry to hear about Ted. I am a nurse and unsure of the reason for the sudden kidney problems. I did have very high pressure before an aortic valve replacement; but it has been OK since then, I take one BP pill, and an herbal collection of remedy and it has been stable; my blood sugar results have been prediabetic, with a sudden spike. So, I am not sure of which direction to begin a natural healing; the obvious will be complete rejection of dialysis. MY other question is about mineral water. I knew I had acidity years ago, many UTI's and a kidney stone; led me, not ten doctors, to realize the stone was acid based. I did herbal and mineral water alkalinization; since I learned that mineral are very alkaline. But now I read that mineral may be hard to process in kidneys under stress. I am taking a supposedly herbal formula for kidney health, but it is not at all helping. I will try the Sodium barcobonate, should I stop the mineral water? Thanks again. Gail

N: When things get quite dire, try to block out all the possibly bad-case scenarios and focus on simple, practical remedies.

Start with supporting Kidneys. To reduce infection & inflammation, place a Magnetic Bed Pad in the low-back area of the K's while reclining in your living room and/or in your bed while sleeping. Next take Cranberry capsules or softgels to clear out infection. Next take Dr Christophers Kidney/Bladder herbal combination to strengthen K's.

For diabetes, take a good multivitamin/mineral supplement plus extra Chromium. Eat lots of Cinnamon or take capsules to improve glucose metabolism.

I took care of kidney patient (My mum) and help her to recover from Kidney disease.

First, take Ashitaba powder/tea (Assitant root/leaves) at least 2 times per day on daily basis.

Second, take gold sea cucumber supplement on daily basis (Luxor brand is very good: Many cured of kidney disease/kidney failure).

Third, daily take beenzyme and papaya leaves containing papain (Optional: Can add on bromelain enzyme supplement) that break down protein in your body. Especially after every meal take beenzyme tablet to break down protein. Daily take papaya leaf supplement too.

U will be on your way to improve your health. Your doctor will say "You are a miracle" like my mum's kidney specialist said to/told her so.

R: It seems a miracle you are here and posting your condition. And yes, there are valuable natural remedies that can help you recover substantial instead of going near dead with palliative-at-best treatments.

Recently many folks have been cured of diabetes from eating Kefir daily, suggesting a pathological organism or infection as the cause of loss of pancreas beta cells. Going back a few years and the now renowned Hulda Clark discovered that many cases of diabetes were caused from parasite infestation, notably flukes.

In your case, I would not rule out any of the forgoing, as the level of involvement is extensive occurring also in the kidneys. Gallstones are also common in pancreas & kidney infections. So you will want to read on the "gallbladder flush" diet that removes gallstones.

First item in natural remedies is alkalizing (which is what the dialysis does). Read the E.C. pages under "remedies" for alkalizing.

Next, is to clean the kidneys by taking Cranberry softgels or D-Mannose, followed an hour or two later with Dr.Christopher's "Kidney/Bladder" herbal formula. After a week or two of this take Raw Bovine Kidney capsules to rebuild those organs.

Next is treating likely parasite infestation with a broad spectrum herbal formula specifically Kroger Herb "Wormwood Combination". In addition to this product I like to add Garlic Oil and Oregano Oil softgels for best effect. Dr. Christopher also developed an herbal formula specifically for the pancreas called P-14 which I have used with very good effect. There are many different manufactures of the Christopher formulas so there will be different names so if you want to try this you must research a little, but it may not be necessary as the Kidney/Bladder formula contains about half of what is found in the pancreas formula, plus the anti-parasite formula I suggested will likely be sufficient. After a few weeks of this treatment take Raw Bovine Pancreas to rebuild that organ.

Lastly, buy yourself some Kefir grains and make your own for daily use. And to help clean your colon take a spoon of Milled Flax Seed daily (can add to the Kefir).

Hope you can follow these suggestion and get better, but please feel free to come back for additional help or update your progress.

I've had Diabetes since 1999. I was controlling it with meds in 2012. I had 2 strokes. I went into Rehab for 6 months. Christmas 2013, I had an unexpected Heart Attack, Coded, had Open Heart Surgery, 3-way Bypass. I had 2 more strokes and severe reaction to all the meds, especially from Anesthesia. I had severe Dementia for months. I have not been well since that time. I am in End Stage Renal Failure, functioning at 10%. My Doctor is forcing me into Dialysis. I had Dialysis after my surgery because they used contrast, which I am allergic to. My kidneys failed then. But 2/3 the way into 2014, my kidneys came back at 30% and I stopped Dialysis. I was in Rehab for a year this time. I got Pancreatitis May 2015 and found out my kidneys were failing.

I am looking to get off most or all my meds, avoiding Dialysis and finally getting well, after being ill since 2012. I would like any help you can give me. I see my Doctor soon and I hope what I am doing will change my lab results enough that my Doctor will waive Dialysis. Thank you.

My friend who is a diabetes type 2 was having problem with kidneys. His doctor advised him to take 500 mg baking soda tablet one in the morning and another in the evening. His kidney is working correctly. But if he stop taking baking soda tablets, his kidney is not functioning properly. Baking soda will keep the body alkaline. You may try this technique.

Hello Cyml:

You say your niece's kidneys are shrinking. My first guess when I see something that the doctors can't explain is to think "infection" either virus, bacteria or fungus....and don't forget parasite. I use colloidal silver which is atoms of silver in water. You have plenty of silver in India. Colloidal silver is a very small amount of silver derived from electrolysis diluted in water. If me having such symptoms I'd drink two tablespoons of colloidal silver three times a day for a month and retest. Her symptoms might also begin improving. Ask your niece to think back before the onset of her kidney problem...ask her if she had a serious infection. Many times the patient can recall a serious infection before another later onset of a "mystery" illness. No mystery: it's the infection (virus, bacteria etc) at work. If she improves, she likely will have to keep up the protocol for many months to make sure the infection is destroyed.

Hi Tina,

So sorry you are having the dreaded cramps, yes my daughter had this, it's very common, The problem is that with Nephrotic Syndrome when you lose the albumin through the kidneys it is carrying all sorts of valuable substances as its known as a molecular taxis. So you can lose all sorts minerals, hormones, fatty acids even drugs. So you can become depleted very quickly in many things. The best thing for the cramps is Magnesium, in fact its difficult to keep potassium in your cells with out it. Unfortunately with today's farming techniques ( artificial fertiliser, etc ) its difficult to replenish the lost minerals through food alone, I use a coloured sea salt that hasn't had the associated minerals removed, I also gave extra magnesium, zinc, copper and selenium as I felt that they were particularly lacking in modern foods. I also tried to give her the best diet possible. I had one mom tell me when her son is weaning off the nephrotic levels of steroids, that he has to use a wheel chair, because of the pain and muscle problems.

Thank you for getting back to me so soon...Today I had horrible hand and forearm cramps to the point that my fingers were locked in an unnatural position. The pain was excruciating. I tried to eat anything that had potassium in it which seemed to help. Has that ever happened to your daughter? I have started to take vit D3 in hopes that will also help. Please ANY advise/help would be appreciated.... Thanks for all your help. Tina

Re Apple Cider Vinegar for Nephrotic Syndrome

Hi Tina,

Yes my daughter was crippled with pain when reducing steroids, her doctors always seemed very surprised by this. I am a biochemist and through research, I came to the conclusion she was suffering from osteomalacia (sort of adult rickets) brought on by loss of vit D3, caused by the massive doses of steroids used for Nephrotic Syndrome, I gave her 5000 iu of vit D3 along with the necessary co factors, ( Magnesium Vit b2 and vit K2, and after 24 hrs she already felt relief, all pain was gone in 5 days. Tina I am so sorry you are suffering from this terrible illness, and because it is uncommon no one understands what you are going through, the treatment causes as much suffering as the disease. my daughters teachers seemed to think she had cystitis and that I was making a fuss over nothing. She still has her vit D3 as it is still too early to make much vit d3 from the sun. Shes had no side effects (actually her eczema and hay fever disappeared) but that's a good side effect. I am sort of embarrassed writing this because as a scientist this all seems too good to be true. I am currently reading every bit of research I can find on Vit D3 . I hope you can get into permanent remission soon.

I am very interested in the ACV use. I was diagnosed with MCD (minimal change disease) 2 years ago, and I am currently on the high steroids due to a relapse. Did your daughter have problems with body pains after coming off the steroids? Thank you and believe me I am very happy to hear she is doing so well. Tina

Dear Kelly,

For someone with multiple health problems, no one may be comfortable to say for sure if coconut oil is "safe." It is a food that has helped many people with many things, so unless certain fats are restricted by your friend's doctor, it does seem a reasonable thing to try. But do get a high quality (cold-pressed) coconut oil that smells like coconut. Start with a small amount and increase as desired. A small amount being a teaspoon once or twice a day. The maximum daily recommendation for coconut oil is 3 Tablespoons a day, I believe.

You might also find this link interesting about using charcoal therapy for renal disease: Charcoal Therapy

I hope you will find some good solutions for your friend!

Hi, what I read about rejuvenate the kidneys is Mastic gum and Arabic gum, and what to use for flushing it are Parsley tea and barley tea.

My granddaughter had a kidney transplant. Before she did, I read a lot about the kidneys, I would suggest that you read about mastic gum. It is used in some countries for kidney function. There is a lot of things you can do. For my grand daughter since she is a child, they couldn't do much without the doctors permission. My daughter did start an appropriate diet for her and both her and her mom (the donor) are doing good.

Lizeth.. (San Francisco)

Have you heard of urine therapy. It's drinking your own urine for your kidneys.. There is a lot of information on it on utube .. I don't know much about dialysis but can you filter urine enough to drink ? Only downside is if you are on medications you can't drink your own urine as it puts back the medications into the system.. so you have to watch out for that.

There is also a naturopathic doctor I found on Utube . HIs name is Robert Morse and he sells some great kidney formulas.. I am using one and going to get another one. they are herbs.. not sure of the outcome as I just started them.. google him or go to utube and watch his videos. Also he is a big advocate for raw foods so the body can heal itself....only thing you have to study these things yourself and see what is best for you.. for me I follow my gut feelings..Dr. Morse will also take your letters and not sure how it works but he might be able to help you if you reach out to his office. He is located in Florida..

L: Two items that will help.

1. Take a bottle of Dr Christopher's "Kidney/Bladder" herbal complex in the recommended doses.

After two wks of the herbals, take a bottle of Raw Kidney Glandular supplement.

These two items will help clean & rebuild the kidneys.

Eating Watermelon is also good source of antioxidants and natural diuretics that are beneficial to kidney function.

This will help short term status but you need to determine the cause or underlying factors that are stressing your kidneys to such a degree.

I'm already on dialysis for about a year, I am to have a kidney transplant in 3 months and I am so scared, I would like to try something else on this last 3 months maybe I can avoid the surgery. Any help will be highly appreciated. Liz

Hi, I just noticed that a couple of people requested an update concerning my daughter's experience using apple cider vinegar for nephrotic syndrome MCD. Well I'm very happy to report that she has had no further relapses, she is still off all medication. We continued using the ACV gargle and swallow 3 times per day for 1 month. After that she did it once per day for 2 months then stopped.

While on vacation she came down with food poisoning and did not relapse, also after returning to school after the Summer holidays she came down with a sore throat, cough and cold but again without relapse, previously the most trivial infection would start a relapse.

I just got my blood results back and I am concerned. My Creatinine Serum is high at 1.04, Sodium Serum is 142, my glucose serum is 99. All my levels are located right at the high end of reference interval or acceptable levels. I drink water, but something is not right.

If I start the ACV and Baking soda, how much water should I use at night? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cornsilk is a miracle worker. If you catch a bladder infection early enough and use enough it will fix it, but not if you let it get a hold.. For kidneys its usefulness cannot be overstated. I have kidney pain from time to time - I think never having drunk enough water could be the cause, but my right kidney is sensitive and gives me pain at times. Cornsilk tincture, anything from a teaspoonful to 2 tablespoons, will stop it in anything from 10 mins to an hour. If it isn't better in half an hour I just take more.

My father had only one kidney, after cancer/chemo that one had 30 percent function. He took cornsilk tablets daily and never had a problem unless he skipped them for a couple of days. I can't buy the tablets any more because cranberry got fashionable and the compny that used to make them here ditched them in favour of cranberry (useless for kidneys) but I can get cornsilk tincture from a variety of homoeopathic/compounding chemists and on line. Never be without it! (I've never heard of contra-indications with it though my mother in law was a bit concerned about my using it during pregnancy)

Flaxseed Tea
Posted by Marghi (Wisconsin) on 05/20/2015

Just a couple of notes on the flax seed discussion. A) Legumes are a family of plants (beans, peas, clover, etc.) Flax is not a legume. B) The omega-three-rich oils in flax seed become oxidized within 20 minutes of grinding them or if they are heated. Oxidized flax oil is detrimental, not beneficial.

Have been on dialysis for 4 years now. Last year I bought and saw the movie by Joe Cross called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I began juicing once a day and eating all natural foods. The renal diet will kill you. My doctor took me off insulin in 2 months and my A1C went down to 5.2. (was insulin diabetic for over 30 years) I went from 245 to 167 lbs. I can walk for miles now and even run when playing with my grandson. My blood work is always great. Never any swelling and I have more energy t hen when I was 30. I will be 63 yrs young Friday the 24th of April. I am not cured yet but I will do all I can. Doctors only treat the symptoms. Good luck to you all and do all you can for yourself.
