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!

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

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.
