Q: apple cider vinegar is said to be good for kidney disease, does that include all kidney related problems? My son is 6 years old and has nephrotic syndrome(scarring of the kidney's filters), will this remedy help him?

Simmer a tablespoonful with flax seeds in a 20 oz of water for about 5 minutes with a lid on, take of the stove (no microwaving) and leave the lid on for another 10 minutes, strain the seeds and give it to your son to drink that! Do not sweeten the tea, not even honey!

This tea could be given 5-6 times a day, it cleans your kidneys out of any infections and the legumes from the flax seeds help with healing kidney damage.

I personally cured my daughters right kidney when she was 7 years old with this simple remedy!

I have a question for Vanya from Frankfort---How long did you use the flaxseed treatment? My elderly father has kidney disease and would love to try him on this as I don't think it would have any side effects, and is simple enough for him to do.

flax seeds are absolutely good for you, and there will not be any side effects from them, you can use this remedy for as long as you like! Now if you are taking flax seed oil, then we are talking about high omega 3-6-9 and thining the blood, wich is helpful for other ailments, for kidney problems just brew the seeds and drink it, it gets a little thick but that is the good legumes that your kidneys need! Good luck!

@Vanya from Frankfort: Flax seed should be raw or roasted? Which type of flax seed should I simmer in water and drink? And how many times a day? Will it have any side effects? I wanna cure my kidney.

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.


Glandular Therapy

Can you recommend glandular therapy for kidney disease?

Replied by Oscar

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

Hi Rani from Pune, In my opinion if you read Ted/Bill 's thought on this subject, it is the acidosis which creates the inflamation in the kidney and since one is diabetic also it confirms the possibility. Therefore to start with you can put him on sodium bi carbonate alone and watch the improvement. I am sure it cannot do any harm. So you can start with 1/4 teaspoon in water after 1/2 hr. of the meal three times a day and see as to how he responds. Baldev 09322887066.

Hello Puni, Ask your friend if he/she also has high blood pressure. If so, Bicarbonate of Soda does serious harm. Do one of Ted's Alkalizing Formulas instead. Many/most diabetics also struggle with high blood pressure over time. You can find his formulas online.

Kidney beans pods is one of the most effective food for curing kidney and bladder trouble.It is also effective for dropsy caused by heart disease and other ailments. Kidney blockage of long duration were also total cured and bleeding from any parts of the urinary system was quickly stopped.Stones and gravel were rapidly dissolved and did not return. Diseases of the bladder and ureter were cured.Rheumatism and acute gout were also cured. For some lucky people their diabetes were cured for good. Patients with inflammation of kidneys and bladder with pus in their urine were also cured.T otal swelling all over the body were also solved with only kidney bean pods water.

Kidney beans pods water must be freshly made and consumed within 24 hours otherwise it will cause diarrhea. Only the pods of the kidney bean were used as the kidney bean were not useful for kidney and bladder problem.

To prepare the kidney pod,boil 2 ounces of the pods slowly in 4 quarts of hot water for 4 hours.When the pods is ready,filter the solution through a fine muslin slowly and carefully and leave it in a cool place for 8 hours. After 8 hours filter the solution through muslin slowly and carefully again as too much fibers in the solution can cause intestinal upset.The solution is ready now.

Other foods that are useful for kidney, bladder and urinary problems are asparagus, beet roots, black eyed peas hulls, carrots, cherry juice, cornsilk teas, cranberries, garlic, onions, parsley, radishes, sage tea and water melon.

L- Arginine

Posted by Faith (Colerain, Ohio) on 07/13/2012

Please look into an amino acid called L-Arginine... You can also take it with Ornithine and Licine, these are help boost immunity and L-Arginine increases T3 which helps the thyroid. It greatly helps the liver and kidneys, specifically the kidneys suddenly OPEN UP and start making more water than you are used to... It flushes your body so go slow... You can take Arginine at night to help sleep.... Ornithine in the day with Licine for infection control. These are great amino acids, but do your own research!

when 7 years old, I nearly died with nepthritis [ kidney disease ]. At 39 year old, the pain in that area made me almost weep and it needed to be stopped. I felt something inside said to fast, take only lemon juice and eat "raw" comfrey - I did this from 4.00 pm friday until lunch time sunday and I have never had a pain there since and I am now 68years old. "I thank God for Comfrey" - since then I have spoke to people who have also been set free of disease in the kidneys through comfrey and its healing "alantoin". I only ate about 7 hand sized leaves over 3 days.

I was facinated with Brian of Australia Comfrey remedy for his kidney troubles.

I am a New Zealander living in Kentucky USA..as a child my Mum(part Maori) always added a few leaves of Comfrey into the cabbage etc,she also told me when I had babies to add a leaf or two into my babies vegetables,and I always did that.

Over my life I have ALWAYS grown Comfrey in my garden,it makes a wonderful tea for the garden plants,and my Mum would use it in her compost. The common name for Comfrey is Knitbone..because it knits together,it is an ancient herb.Unfortunately withing the last 20years some silly persons have over indulged (They must have drunk buckets of Comfrey tea) consequently comfrey has been labelled now.
I believe EVERYTHING in moderation..I have heard of someone dyeing from drinking too much water..if you understand what I mean.

Since living in Kentucky a long way from my Homeland, I have been able to buy a Comfrey plant,and my Comfrey is my treasure, I make a tea from her..I can gargle with the tea..I can add honey and a little ginger powder if I had a cold or flu..comfrey is great for the lungs..bladder etc.

Comfrey leaf if crushed (roll the rolling pin over to crush stalk) and put on a cut with gauze,and wrapped in plastic wrap,within 24hours cut will be sealed, do the same thing for bruising,grazing etc.. back in New Zealand many of the horse trainers use Comfrey for their horses legs when hurt.. Comfrey can also be dried out in the sun and kept air tight to use throughout the Winter..hope you are all healed now Brian.

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.

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.

According to my mother, when I was 5 years old the doctor said, I got a kidney. I don't know what kind of medication my mother applied to me but I'm pretty sure it was in natural way. "The wonders of herbs and water."

When I was in elementary grades it attacked me again. It was very severe pain and when I was in high school also. I always drink Guyabono leaves boiled and make it for tea and seven kinds of leaves also put it together to boiled, and corn bills. We are poor in my country (Philippines) and my mother can't afford in operation and even for medicine. If I got attacked a severe pain and illness in several times in several years, my mother knew what it was and let me to drink home maid or I called it my mother's tea. It served as my daily water and I stop drinking when I felt better and okey.

In college I was attacked again because I worked as a working student in a University, my worked was to check the faculty in their respective classroom in every hour in 5-story building. I can't urinate if I urinate it only a drops but I can't felt the pain and on an off fever with chilling. My mother was troubled and tried everything what is herbal, she tried pure cucumber juice, young coconut juice to make me urinate and it works. I was 17 yrs. old. The next attacked, when I was 23 yrs old. I am away with my mother; I worked in factory 8 hrs or 12 hrs a day and also a regular student in a university. I slept 3 to 4 hrs a day (a day cause I worked in grave yard and day in school and in bed). These was the worst things happened in my life, the very worst pain and worst ill, all my grades was failure, confined in hospital for almost 3 weeks.

Mother was not around only my high school sister who leaves with me. My mother cannot come because of financial. So my sister tried also what my mother did, the home maid tea, cucumber juice, young coconut juice, guyabono tea, and this time we applied new, the pure lemon juice every morning.

The stomach must be empty before taking a pure glass of lemon juice for 4 days and no meals after drinking lemon juice in 1 hr. and in 3 days half glass of lemon juice. It works really. Before the doctor said operation! Operation! I said NO because I have no money for operation and aside I knew it will not make me fine cause these illness I must say it attached in my entire life since when I was born and till now (37 yrs old) but I have no worries now about kidney problem. I'm now working here in Japan if I got stress and over fatigue in work and make me ill and if I can't urinate even I drink a lot of water. I know my kidney problem is attacking again and no need of doctor's advice. Now, I know how to resolve this problem. I discovered the Alingitngit leaves, the leaves it look likes a green tea leaves. These leaves always be with me in several years it just like I'm depending my health on this leaves I learn that this is good for filtering for what ever we intakes in our body and that's the work of the kidney (to filter). I'm taking also Gabon (sorry I don't know what the English name of alingitngit or gabon nor their scientific name) but you can found this in Philippines. It saves my health of frequent attacking my illness, my kidney problem and no cost of money at all. I passed this to my several friends. Sometimes I'm taking apple cider vinegar, apple juice, pure lemon juice, and pure cucumber juice just for my health. I will try' mixing olive oil and lemon to remove any stone inside in my body (I don't know if have a gallstone). I think everybody got a stone in the body; we are now leaving in mass polluted surroundings. Whatever illnesses we have try in natural or in herbs way there is no harm with it just go back in basic and ancient ways "the natural remedies". JUST VERY SIMPLE!

EC:

We did a little research and found the following information on Alingitngit leaves, AKA TSAANG GUBAT on the website:

"TSAANG GUBAT

Luzon:' Kalabong, Kalimumog, Katdalugod, Maragued, Mara-mara, Taglokot, Talibunog,

Tst, Tsaang-gubat, Tsa-tsa

Visayas: Alibungog, Semente

Mindanao: Alangitngit, Alingitngit, Buyo-buyo

Tsaang-gubat is a low, woody plant with several stems. It is grown as ornamental or bonsai because of its attractive appearance. Its leaves are small and have dark, green and shiny upper surface. Tsaang-gubat is indicated or used primarily for diarrhea. But it is also advised for stomachache and colic.

Diarrhea: A person has diarrhea or LBM (Loose Bowel Movement) when his stool is soft to watery and when he has to move his bowels more often than two times in one day. To treat diarrhea using Tsaang-gubat, follow these steps:

1. Determine the amount of Tsaang-gubat leaves to use. The amount of leaves to use varies according to the age of patient and the condition of leaves, as follows:

Condition of Leaves
Age of Patient Fresh (chopped) Dried (crushed)
Adult 12 tbsp.

10 tbsp.

7-12 years

6 tbsp.

5 tbsp.
2-6 years 3 tbsp.

2 1/2 tbsp.

2. Boil correct amount of leaves in 2 glasses of water for 15 minutes.

3. Let cool, then strain and divide into 4 parts.

4. Take 1 part every two hours (until stool becomes solid).

Boiling the Mixture: There are important rules to follow when boiling the leaves in water. Observe strictly the following:

a. Use only enameled container or claypot ("palayok"), never an aluminum pot.

b. A standard glass or cup should contain 240 ml. or 8 fluid ounces of water. This measurement is the same as the content of a bottle or regular size Pepsi or Coke.

c. Mix leaves in water before placing on fire.

d. As soon as the mixture boils uncover the pot and let boil continuously for 15 minutes. Remember that the mixture should boil uncovered.

e. Strain and let cool. You now have what is called "decoction."

Storing the Decoction: For convenience, you may prepare enough decoction that you can use for several days. Simply adjust the amount of leaves to use according to the amount of water that you will boil. When kept in thermo pot ("termos"), the decoction will last for three days without losing its efficacy. When kept in refrigerator, the decoction will last up to four days without losing its efficacy. Keep in mind, however, that whether kept in thermo pot or refrigerated the decoction must not be taken anymore when its color has changed or when it has grown molds or fungus.


Nephritis Remedy Summary

Posted by Lis (Ny, Ny, Usa) on 10/29/2010

Nephritis (high protein in urine) - Summary of Remedies from Ted and the Earth Clinic Community

Often bacterial in origin or the body has an infection.

1. Alkalize (raise immunity and reduce bacteria): Drink two tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 a cup of water twice a day (morning and night) on an empty stomach for four to five days a week. Or two to eight teaspoons lime or lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 cup of water twice a day. You can alternate between these two formulas.

2. Zinc: Take 50 mg of zinc gluconate per week.

3. Magnesium: Take 250 mg of magnesium citrate five days out of the week -- increases the body's defenses against bacteria, thus reducing the high protein in the kidneys.

4. Sea Salt: Add 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in one liter of water and drink throughout the day -- will raise the salinity of the urine somewhat and the antibiotic effect of the salt will reduce the bacteria thus reducing the protein buildup in the urine.

5. Oil Pulling: See here https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/oil_pulling.html

6. Lecithin Granules: One tablespoon lecithin in a cup of water one to three times a day, 30 minutes before eating -- reduces excess fatty liver and reduces the liver's congestion.

7. Clove Oil: Mix one drop of clove oil in one liter of water and drink through the day - kills the bacterium in the liver, thus reducing the high protein in the kidneys.

*For cloudy urine, taking a vitamin B complex for a couple of days may help clear it up and reduce the protein buildup.

*Also discontinue drinking carbonated beverages

Nephritis Summary Revised...

Excess protein may be linked to taking too much protein and lack of digestive enzyme that digests the protein, such as protease, and may be supplemented with pancreatic enzymes, bromelain enzymes and to some extent papain. The total protease should be 50 to 100 mg taken before meals 3 times a day, bromelain 2500 GDU, and papain roughly 250 to 500 mg also three times a day. There was a case where a doctor gave patients 10 white eggs a day plus steroids as a way to reduce urine protein but that actually made it worse. Milk powder also worsened. An excess urine protein can also be lack of amino balance such as arginine or glutamine, for example.

A simple test is possible. A protein free diet or caloric restriction for 3 days to see if there is improvement.

Nephrotic Syndrome Remedies

Posted by Taurusmum (Melbourne, Australia) on 09/17/2013

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.

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.

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.

Hey there Cindy;

Re: Your question in reference to my post to Robert Henry..

First, thank you for the nice compliment. I am such a believer in natural E to ward off cardio and circulation related issues.

Now your question was, I think, what 40 pills do I take and then you asked about the 80/10/10 diet with the 80 being raw.

Well, I am a patient of Dr Nick Gonzales of Manhattan, and he did want me on a more raw diet but classified my metabolic type as "meat eater."

But I don't follow the 80/10/10 even though I should and could even under Dr Gonzales' classification.

I am a terrible sinner. I eat bad things and this is a major fault of mine. Very little exercise (I adhere to the HIIT method...High Intensity Interval Training.) I practice flexibility movements and shadow boxing from the "old days" to keep up agility and speed (or a semblance of it). I practice elementary karate kicks.

And, as mentioned, I take a lot of nutrients. Were, you asking for a list of what I take? Sorry, I wasn't following exactly but just listed my list of what I do and what I shouldn't do.

If you want the list I'll be glad to do so.

Cindy: Dave takes supplements. I follow the 80/10/10 program. The idea behind the program is that raw organic fruit is going to have more energy than in regular food because of the enzymes, humic fulvic acids, xeronines, and trace minerals. We believe this is the best food program. People can eat as much raw organic fruit as they want whenever they want. The only two technical aspects are soaking nuts and seeds for protein and oil and getting the proper ratio of carbs to oil. I would encourage you to try the program.

Hello Robert Henry, 'ol buddy;

Re: all your problems

First: Cordical Atrophy of both kidneys.

Second: Edema of the legs.

Third: Crushed vertebra.

The cordical is the cortex or the outer layer and is usually associated with the brain but can also relate to kidney. So the MRI showed the outer area of both kidneys is atrophying. Dangerous and potentially lethal as I'm sure the MDs have told you.

The Edema is the big clue that tells us the cause of the atrophy. I have a 91 year old pal who takes lots of nutritional stuff and has for 40 years. I went to see him in the assisted care facility and there he was ... laid up with special wrappings around his legs... legs lifted; Edema.

What is going on, I asked him. With all the great nutritionals you swallow why should you have a circulation problem? And after talking to him, that was just about the only problem he had. His mind is still sharp; he looks good (outnumbered 7 to 1 female to male residents he is the center of attention at the Saturday night "events" there at the Facility).

But I digress.

I insisted on reviewing his nutrient inventory. Mercy. He takes more pills than I do, and I take 40 or so a day.

HOWEVER, the one I was looking for, and there were some exotic ones in his "box" was missing.

What, dear reader, will facilitate the bloods circulation more than any other?

What, is the greatest cause of Edema? Circulatory insufficiency. And as to the previous question...what will facilitate blood circulation, and vein and arterial dilation, and elimination of inflammation that can restrict circulation and even plaque removal which certainly will cause Edema...

I am sure the astute reader and you, Robert Henry, know the answer to this question. But do you know what? My old friend, the one in the nursing home was not, I say NOT taking that fundamental...absolutely bottom line essential vitamin. And literally, within 10 days of adding that ONE nutrient to his regimen he was nearly Edema free.

And...and...watch this: Lack of blood flow as evidenced by the Edema MIGHT also be the cause of the atrophying kidneys. May Be....

THE KEY is NATURAL VITAMIN E....Lack of proper circulation is killing you. It can only help in your recovery of the vertebra. If surgery, E can help the healing.

The Doctors "Shute"... brothers... and Canadian physicians back in the 50s were talking about Edema and Vitamin E. Circulation and Vitamin E. Clot removal and Vitamin E.

If this were me, I'd start with 200 IUs daily of Natural E (d alpha tocopherol, and not the dl form which is synthetic). After a few weeks, increase to 400 IUs, and two weeks later same increase and two weeks later same increase. I take 1000 IUs daily and have for ... oh, 30 years or so. And make sure your are taking Magnesium and Arginine. 500 mg of each. (I take 5 thousand mg of Arginine.) Some folks, if facing big circulatory problems will take DMSO cream and mix in Vitamin E and apply topically to the effected areas; goes straight to the site, through the skin. And some folks, if the problem is not resolved, will increase the oral dosage to 2000 IUs.

Robert Henry, you are REALLY smart. Now, try to think of anything else to improve circulation, because (re the kidney) whatever the cause is (Cysts?), the improved circulation on the outside of the Kidney (Cortex = Cortical) will benefit both that problem and the Edema.

Now as many nutrients as you do take, maybe you'll tell me you are taking 1, 000 natural Vitamin E. But if that is the case, then SOMETHING is stopping it from acting. Are you sure it is natural? REALLY synthetic (sure it's cheap) but it won't work. Magnesium? Enhances the E and so does Vitamin C and selenium. Robert Henry, think now; you've helped thousands. You can figure this out. Don't give up.

You are loved and we need you.

And one more thing: Act fast.

Your old pal,

And YOUR student,
