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.
Please take a lot of radish leaf juice without adding water, sugar or salt every morning and evening, about 40 minutes before your meals. Radish leaves are excellent in melting your kidney stones. It is also very safe and excellent for chronic renal failure patients. There are absolutely no side effects. I am praying for you.
Hello; Suddenly found myself in Stage II kidney failure, big surprise. Been taking mild herbs, organic tea (marshmallow root and Cornsilk) for 2 months and I'm now in Stage III. Have always fought acidity, drinking only mineral water for years. Cannot tolerate Apple Cider Vinegar. I appreciate all the comments, is there a place where specific remedies are given. Thanks Gail

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.
