Hello, I am a twice a week dialysis patient due to Iga-Nephropathy. I've read articles about bicarbonate or baking soda being used for renal failure. I desperately need to know exactly how this works, and how it could help me. I still urinate, but I also retain fluids. I (do not)want a transplant and all its damaging medicines. I want to cure or at least improve myself dramatically. please let me know how to take the bicarbonate, or any other herb or treatment to improve my kidneys. Ill await your responce, thank you.

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) helps by bonding to phosphurus acid in your stomach. its helps with eliminating too much acidity, but doesnt help rejenerate kidney function.

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.

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.

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 always used Castor Oil Packs to strengthen my liver and kidneys. The liver can grow itself back if you take the time to do it.

You get cold pressed castor oil, wool flannel, a heating pad and a piece of plastic - I use a garbage bag. There are sites online that will explain it in details.

I put the castor oil into a sealed container with the wool flannel and shake it up. You want the castor oil to be dripping from it slowly. I then put the container into the microwave for about 15 or 20 seconds - just to get it heated up. I then put a couple of towels onto my bed or couch and lay down on them. Then I take the wool flannel and put it on my stomach. If you are trying to heal the liver, put it a little bit more over your liver, if you are trying to heal the kidneys, put it over that area. Then I put the garbage bag onto the flannel and then the heating pad - all the way on high (or as high as you can handle). Leave it on for at least one hour and meditate on what you are trying to achieve. After you are finished, wipe yourself off with a mixture of Baking soda and water to get your skin back to the proper ph.

Do this for 4-5 days on and then leave off for the remaining days.

The is a good book called Edgar Cayce and the Palma Christi. It tells of all the wonderful things that Castor Oil (the Palma Christi) does!

Ken,
I have never had a problem with my kidneys, so I am hopefully thinking this is due to my using the Castor Oil packs! However, I use to treat a woman in Houston and she was going to dialysis, I did a few different treatments on her, and one of them was Castor Oil packs. Her numbers were dramatically decreased. I had her change her diet, use the Castor oil packs and I did Body Alignment Technique. Her numbers decreased by the third time.

Kidney help

Years ago, in 1998 my son was sent home from the hospital, on a friday, after one week, with a very swollen abdomen and swelling in his ankles. He has had a disease called Nephrotic Syndrome since he was fifteen, and he was then twenty-four. At that time he had been hospitalized over forty times for this awful disease. This hospital that had had him for a patient for nearly ten years, lost his medical file! So my son told this new doctor that when he is in a swollen state that Lasix in pill form will not make him urinate. He told him that the only treatment that would get the fluid off of him at that point was lasix given intraveinously.

Well, the doctor refused and kept on trying to give him pills. When I told the patient advocate about the problem the doctor sent my son home the next day with about two gallons of excess water still inside him. He could not urinate more than an inch of urine containing blood and pus. Well, I made him a bed on my couch and tried to make him as comfortable as I could. I knew that it would be nearly impossible to find a kidney specialist on the weekend. So I went into my bedroom and closed the door and laid across my bed and cried and cried. And then I remembered something I had read in a little book titled: '10 Top Herbs to cure big diseases' It said that cayenne pepper unblocks any blockage!

So I thought to myself it is worth a try. I looked in my kitchen cabinet and I had it in my spices. I thought I would put some in soup, and then I told myself 'No' because that is just more liquid in him he doesn't need right now. So I dumped out some big capsules and filled up four or five of them. I gave them to my son and within a four hour period, he urinated three long times! After that his pills kicked in and began working! He remained in remission for about eight years but it always flares up when he gets a cold or flu, or under to much stress.

I hope this helps.

Hi, from Tx. My husband has been on diaylsis for @ 5 years. IF YOU CAN STILL URINE, AND YOUR POTASSIUM is ok--try drinking coconut water after treatment. It will strengthen your blood, and give you energy. AS far as the Apple Cider Vinager--use an organic brand, not store brands. It has "mother's wort" and is brown in color. You can look up all its usages on the web. It's good for high blood, acid reflux, arthritis, and weight loss. I also have recently began juicing--"celery and cucumbers w/apple"--it states "assists with kidney functions! " At this point--what can it hurt! I do know that his blood pressure has been normal 120/80 for 4 months! So something is working! Mostly, we pray and believe that God's word is true, and healing is available for all that can believe! God bless each of you is my prayer!

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)

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.

Wonderful Corn Silk For Kidney Problems:

Corn silk has been used to treat various urinary disorders and is a diuretic.
It is effective in treating acute and chronic inflammation of the urinary system.
In Chinese medicine it is used as a treatment for water retention.

A sweet, soothing and cooling herb with diuretic properties, stimulates bile, helps prostatitis, enuresis in children, prevents the formation of stones in the kidneys, clears bladder and urinary tract infection, and lowers blood sugar levels.

Corn silk tea has a soothing effect on kidney, bladder and urinary problems, and can clear up pus, infection, burning or scalding urine. It will also soothe inflammation of the urinary passages due to gravel or kidney stones, and regulate the flow of urine (whether too much or too little), in cases of bladder drip and incontinence -inability of the bladder to hold urine-and urine retention or stoppage of urine. It seems to heal diseased areas of the kidneys, bladder and urinary passages and flush out uric acid, toxins and other poisons.

http://www.herbs2000.com/herbs/herbs_corn.htm

A simple way to prepare corn silk.Wash corn silk and put it in a cup,pour in boiling water and cover the lid. Wait for 15 minutes before drinking. Corn silk can be reused many times. Do not throw corn silk away after your first drink.

For those who can afford the time to cook herbs. Corn silk plus China barley would be more effective for kidney problems!

Benefits of BARLEY-dysuria,hydrops,whites,ascariasis,beriberi,abscess,mouth ulcer!China barley

Important: Use only China barley! Holland barley is not so useful

Direction for use

Use 2 litres of water and bring it to a boil,put in corn silk and China barley.Switch to low flame and cook for 1 hour.This herb is suitable for everybody young and old to detox their body of toxins! To be taken on empty stomach for best results or 2 hour to 3 hour after food for better absorption.Drink these herbs regularly for good results.Take your time and consume the solution slowly sips by sips throughout the day.

Do not use aluminum pot to cook herb,cooking herbs in aluminum pot will cause a chemical reaction resulting in a slow form of poisoning!

Corn silk is not suitable for kidney dialysis patients because of it's high Potassium content due to dialysis machine.

Wayne: To keep my kidneys functioning well, as periodically they don't, I take a half-spoon of D-Mannose and 3 Nature's Way Kidney/Bladder formula 2x day for a day or two with very good results.

In severe cases where one needs dialysis, the Kidneys need "rebuilding", which requires the use of the herb Comfrey. Added to the Comfrey, take Raw Kidney Glandular PLUS any nutritional products that are proven to stimulate Human Growth Hormone. Any of these three remedies alone would prove marginally effective, BUT combine them and you should see rapid rebuilding of the Kidneys.

@Dreamer: Comfrey is one of the greatest healing herbs on the planet, but some seeming evil stepped in and cursed it with the toxic alkaloid pyrrolizidine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrrolizidine_alkaloid. The Comfrey root is said to contain more pyro than the leaf and every plant varies in toxicity so would need proceed with much caution. Nature's Herbs? once marketed a non-toxic comfrey but they discontinued it; maybe someone still does, worth researching. I have read that boosting Glutathione levels and taking Milk Thistle helps prevent the toxicity.

There are many different supplements as well as a short fast and cardio exercise that boost HGH; I have posted info here on E.C.

@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.

Proteinuria and Tooth Pain

I suggest for the tooth and jaw pain, a plant-based diet sticking with your kidney disease dietary restrictions. This has helped me tremendously.

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.

To the blissful dialysis nurse in Australia, being as you are faced with troubles of your own kidneys I would imagine that you could admit never witnessing a person on dyalisis getting off. Most people choose a field, hopefully passionately. I have been in the mix of these centers for only about 7 years and it seems to me that there are simply those who believe they must believe what they are told- and those who begin to question everything they have been taught. That's a hard thing to do.

I have successfully gotten my grandmother off of dialysis after 4 years- stage four, then stage 5. Every doctor said it could not be done. We did it. One day at a time. Absolutely beginning with nutrition. All of those renal diet musts" are contributing to the fact that these people continue to lose there ability to allow there bodies to strive. White breads only? and dont forget to start taking away the okay to eat fresh fruit, or many veggies, or nuts, or grains, musnt forget legumes... Instead lets make them believe that they need to overload on protien-and glue (white starch?) don't drink water! It will kill ya. I mean, do you honestly feel what you posted? just keep your body from real nutrition and when you come in to get your blood cleansed.. We'll reward you with fake sweetners atop of jello and send you home with more destructive recipes. Its the least to be done, considering, these peoples continued demise pays the bills.

Please -do your research, its "high school stuff". Please search your soul. And to any patients out there.. , . Please start by learning about alkalized water and maybe some stabilized oxygen- totally non toxic!! Make your low fluid allowance count! Enzymes! We were supposed to have them thank goodness for health food stores and natural advocates-protease is a good enzyme to start with, if you are a kidney patient with "high urine protien" (urine ph level under 6.0) and on the other hand , if you are a patient with a urine ph balance above 7.5 you are in need of bringing some acidity to your body to help neutralize things. Try sodium ascorbate( vitamin C -no calcium), purchase ph urine strips on the internet, healthfood stores and test daily to see if your ph level is getting closer to 7.0. That is the number both sides of the ph levels want to try and focus on.

Try these things for a while if you like and see how you feel about "the side effects" vs "dialysis effects" oh! Two more things, see if the stabilized oxygen doesnt help make a difference with blood sugar and maybe blood pressure because as much as they tried to give my Nani more diabetic meds and blood pressure meds when not really needed, I know that they were inhibiting her own body from performing its own tasks. Those things are important to try and defeat- we did. Remember, what we speak, shall be what is. the power of thought!!! I am on a mission!! Much love and Health. Melanie

Hi Melanie,

After reading your blog, I am further inspired to continue researching different methods of healing. I have always been a big believer of herbal remedies and will continue to find alternatives, rather then the medicine and foods the docters want me to take.

I am a patient on Dialysis and feel great apart from the toxins building up in my body. I will try to pursue a healthier lifestyle here on.

Many thanks!

Hope all goes well for the future!!

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 http://www.lifeextension.com/Protocols/Kidney-Urinary/Kidney-Health/Page-08

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.
