I do know that Okra is excellent for diabetic patients and also aids in cleaning the gut.

Hi Maura from UK, kindly update us about any further results. Is ACV helping in the long run & she continues drinking it or was the initial drop in urine albumin was possibly due to some other factors?


Corn Silk

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)

To Jack, go to in the health food store or harmacy and get a gallon of Aloe Vera drink daily, can mix with tea or juice. Don't give up give it at least 2weeks will work


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.

My daughter is 12, she has been suffering with Nephrotic Syndrome Mcd for 10 yrs. She had relapsed and we were waiting to go on the high dose steroids, her protein spill was +3. She had a very sore throat and I had the idea to get her to gargle with apple cider vinegar, 5mls (a capful) in a glass of water 3 times a day. I was very surprised to find the next day her protein was +2, the next day +1 and then neg. It's been 10 days now, I get her to drink a glass of Apple Cider Vinegar before bed, when she gargled she also swallowed it. I am still in shock this worked, no high dose steroids with all the horrible side effects.

Isn't it a direct conflict to take the ACV and the bicarbonate at the same time, or in the same time period? Are these not polar opposites on acidity? I have read about both being helpful. Are there any here who have been counseled or considered that one increases acidity and one reduces it? Bill

EC: Hi Bill,

Please read our ACV and Baking Soda page here.

My wife had been diagnosed by our DO with kidney disease. She has been diabetic for many years and doesn't take very good care of the condition. Her GFR was 38 and Doc was concerned. I personally felt that she was already on too many meds and looked for a more natural method to raise the GFR. I found on more than one website in the UK, that there have been extensive studies on the use of ACV with baking soda, with impressive results. You won't find these studies in the US because the drug companies won't make a nickel from the results. This treats the problem, not the symptom.

We consulted with Doc, to make sure the sodium wouldn't be a problem with her hypertension. Doc looked at the UK studies and said, "Give it a try."

More recent blood work has seen her GFR go from 38 to 45, and now up to 53. We are no longer waiting to be told that dialysis will be on the agenda. The combination also seems to have help bring her BP down a little bit.

Another positive note to this is that my wife had not been one who wanted to try 'natural' remedies. Now that she has seen very good positive results, she reminds me if I forget to mix up her acv/soda combo in the morning. She is now more willing to try some of my "crazy" ideas.

I would highly recommend checking out the UK studies. The reports showed that in more than one case, people had been able to stop dialysis after using the combination.

My wife takes 1 oz. of ACV with 2 oz. of water and 1/8 tsp. baking soda. We use raw ACV.

Glandular Therapy
Posted by Oscar (Syracuse, New York) on 06/27/2014

Dear Eckhard from Toronto, There are many causes of or for kidney disorders. Kidney disease is too vague to provide specific advise. As far as gland health goes: Avoid foods that have the element BROMINE. Certain breads and dough products along with certain soft drinks contain bromine. Bromine displaces the necessary IODINE in endocrine processes. Taking one standard multivitamin and mineral supplement daily should ensure the required IODINE.

Also I recommend drinking distilled water along with one cup of pure cranberry juice a day to avoid bacterial kidney infections and to promote kidney health in general. For some specific kidney disorder you need to state exactly what is wrong with your kidneys....Oscar

All you do is take a few pieces of arabic gum and chew them. Nothing else is needed. The gum from Greece is best. The powder is not as good either.

Arabic gum can be bought at middleeastern import food stores. They will recognise it by the name Mastic or Mastiki gum. You could also try India food stores.


Nephrotic Syndrome Remedies
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 09/23/2013

Dear Taurusmum: concerning your question about your son's kidney problem... Nephrotic syndrome; you make the argument for supplementation of Vitamin C splendidly yourself!

Remember it was Dr Linus Pauling who wrote and researched the effects of Vitamin C. And the quote from the book on the subject is quite convincing.

So what do you have to lose? Vitamin C can't hurt him. Just a few observations: if you take a lot of ascorbic acid (C) at once that is not time released the result will be a case of diarrhea. So give him a time released. And also if you give him large doses, remember ascorbic acid is acidic. Some prefer buffered C. You could experiment with what works best for him. If this were me, I'd try a time released in the AM and PM AFTER meals.

I have been doing some research for natural cures for Nephrotic Syndrome for kids. I saw in the website of Dr. Andrew Saul about the use of vitamin C in kidney problems. It says and I quote:

"Nephrotic Syndrome. This condition results from tissue damage and impaired nephron function. Its association with collagen diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc. ) is hardly accidental, for chronic deficiencies of vitamin C (and vitamin C's helpers, the bioflavinoids) cause the very event described by Williams on page 851: "The primary degenerative lesion is in the capillary basement membrane of the glomerulus which permits the escape of large amounts of protein into the filtrate." This is because capillaries, those tiniest and most numerous of all the blood vessels, get leaky in the absence of ample vitamin C."

I want to know if anyone has had any good outcome from this. A lot of cases I've read mentioned that they usually have attacks or relapses after a cold or flu, which meant they did not have enough Vitamin C.

Could it be that vitamin C can help? Has anyone known of any real life case?
Thanks for your help.

D-Mannose, Herbs

@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.

People with bad kidney try this and this works too. Buy fresh okra from food store but you will be using only two a day for every day till you feel better. Take two and cut both ends then split from one side leave them in glass of water for over night. In the morning squeeze them good and drink the water. You don't have to eat okra. Do it and let other people know.

DMSO

I saw this in the DMSO page and thought it should be posted here too. It seems DMSO can open blockages related to liver and renal failure.

[YEA] 08/24/2012: Geralyn_d from Atlanta, Ga: "When I went into acute liver failure 4 years ago I was not told about ascites, they didn't really expect me to live and I turned down a place on the transplant list. I started eating raw vegan as it was the least reactive food I could stomach. One day I was dressing and noticed I looked like a water barrel! I weighed myself and had gained 8 pounds in a couple of days... I was going out of town the next day and used the only thing I know of that quickly removes excess water... DMSO.

I spread 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of 99% DMSO on a baby wipe... Then wiped from breast line to just past the groin where lymph glands are (front and back)and over the next 12 hours I peed like a racehorse! It took 2 days but all the water build up disappeared. It has come back 5 times and I used it each time to success. I also added tissue salts for control of water in the body and liver support (nat mur /nat sulph).

Recently my sister was in the hospital when her chemo almost killed her (heart and liver issues). She gained 24 pounds in 5 days. I advised the DMSO cautiously thinking at least there they could deal with any reaction. Instead of a problem, she ended up flooding the measuring container a few times and lost the 24 pounds in a week. The Drs were very happy that the liver numbers quickly dropped to the normal range. We didn't share our diuretic free solution though. DMSO is a cheap and pretty safe way to get rid up water build up."

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.

Potassium "stimulates the kidneys to eliminate poisonous body wastes" (Nutrition Almanac, Third Edition). All of our food that contains potassium has been engineered to last longer (Food, Inc.). Maybe you have eaten too many foods trying to get healthy but have ingested too much potassium.

I totally agree that ALL of our food is genetically modified in one way or the other. None of our food is safe. It is no longer the way God created it. My kidneys were shutting down on me. I read something somewhere (that I will try to find) about Blackstrap Molasses and I tried it. It helped me. The majority of food and supplements in the health food stores is bad for you BUT I get the unsulphered BSM at the health food store and the "Real Salt" sea salt. It is the flowing/anti-caking agent in what is acceptable as table salt that is the culprit to many ailments and could be what contributes to your difficulty. This has been a piecemeal learning endeavor for over twenty years. I'm only trying to share what was wrong with me and what helped.

I believe the connective tissue from the bladder to the kidney which has blood vessels 10,000 times smaller than the hair on your head becomes clogged; especially with all the gmo franken foods.

i do not urinate enough to keep my fluid levels down; sometimes 5-6 liters after 2 days. i want so desperately to get off this witchcraft / sorcery (revelation 18:23) search the meaning of sorcery=pharma...! so; does anyone have any proof of a viable solution? if so; please notify me. thanks, messiah bless.

Blackstrap Molasses fights cancer and will increase urination. I'm sorry I cannot recommend a therapeutic amount. Maybe start with one TBSP in warm water or 2% milk before going to bed. Someone else posted taking 3 tsp throughout the day but at this stage I would think starting at a larger dose first would help. I take either/or, depending on my urine flow. I read that therapeutic amounts of B-Complex also fights cancer but you have to be careful of the binders and fillers.

Alkalize
Posted by Pecmkr (Essex Junction, Vermont) on 12/22/2012

I just want to thank Ted for the good work he is doing here. I took Zithromax for pnemonia and it hurt my left kidney bad. I discontinued after the first dose, but pain for three weeks following first two pills. I have been working hard to heal this, but the spleen began to hurt as well. After this the liver and or gallbladder were off too.

I was able to read through this site and see advice that Ted gave to others. Based on my own research I can say that Ted is more than brilliant. I am certain that his advice has helped me and many others. The doctors do not know how to heal kidneys. Its a very difficult task, but doing the right things certainly help. I had no time to waste with this either.
