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.

Castor Oil
Posted by Brooke (Montgomery, Tx, Usa) on 12/05/2010

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.

Stage III Kidney Failure
Posted by Gail (Kingston, Ny) on 04/16/2017 10 posts

Thank you very much for your answers. I am sorry to hear about Ted. I am a nurse and unsure of the reason for the sudden kidney problems. I did have very high pressure before an aortic valve replacement; but it has been OK since then, I take one BP pill, and an herbal collection of remedy and it has been stable; my blood sugar results have been prediabetic, with a sudden spike. So, I am not sure of which direction to begin a natural healing; the obvious will be complete rejection of dialysis. MY other question is about mineral water. I knew I had acidity years ago, many UTI's and a kidney stone; led me, not ten doctors, to realize the stone was acid based. I did herbal and mineral water alkalinization; since I learned that mineral are very alkaline. But now I read that mineral may be hard to process in kidneys under stress. I am taking a supposedly herbal formula for kidney health, but it is not at all helping. I will try the Sodium barcobonate, should I stop the mineral water? Thanks again. Gail

Stage III Kidney Failure
Posted by Gail (Kingston, Ny) on 05/19/2017 10 posts

Thank you very much for referral to Ted's remedies. To be honest, there are some complications which may make this more difficult

One is the fact that I have Barrets Syndrome; I tried to control it with cold pressed aloe vera gel, but it gave me severe diarrhea which increased my irritable bowel syndrome I believe caused by internal hemmorhoids since childbirth. So, I had to take Nexium, yes, I know bad, but when I stop the Nexium I can feel burning in my esophagus.

I BP has been controlled after 2 aortic valve replacements with one pharma pill and an herbal remedy for 2 years. And I have just found out I also have osteoporosis.

Does anyone know if mineral water which is alkaline is OK for the kidneys. I drink it for alkalinity but have heard the minerals may be hard on the kidneys.

I did take sodium bicarb for a while but found it burning my esophagus and stomach, same with apple cider vinegar.

As well, I am prediabetic and have always had high genetic cholesterol; but, I am boiling a soup of Leeks, parsnips, turnips, 2 potatoes, carrots and celery and my HDL is now fabulous my MD says. Thank you Janet for your reply. My my, it's soooo complicated. Gail

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.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Posted by Mama To Many (Tennessee) on 02/25/2016

Dear Kelly,

For someone with multiple health problems, no one may be comfortable to say for sure if coconut oil is "safe." It is a food that has helped many people with many things, so unless certain fats are restricted by your friend's doctor, it does seem a reasonable thing to try. But do get a high quality (cold-pressed) coconut oil that smells like coconut. Start with a small amount and increase as desired. A small amount being a teaspoon once or twice a day. The maximum daily recommendation for coconut oil is 3 Tablespoons a day, I believe.

You might also find this link interesting about using charcoal therapy for renal disease: Charcoal Therapy

I hope you will find some good solutions for your friend!

Hey Rich, I would like to find out how your wife is doing and if this has helped her since its been in 2014 when this was posted. I have type 2 diabetes and take ACV daily in the morning with lemon water, this has kept all of this at bay with my diabetes. I've never tried baking soda in this. I also juice, and eat a low carb diet. These regimens have also helped, good luck to everyone.

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.

Arabic Gum

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.

Do you have a high amount of Uric acid in your system? If so sugar is bad. Black cherry juice may help reduce it.

Avoid Bentonite Clay

I've worked with dialysis patients for years and bentonite clay has come up many times. It destroys your kidneys over a few years. The clay sticks to the inside of your nephrons. As the kidney disease advances (slowly) the nephrologist will ask you to allow them to perform a kidney biopsy, it is at this time that it is discovered that clay, acual clay, is stuck inside the millions of tiny nephrons in each kidney. Although you may see positive results, kidney disease, and evenually dialysis, is the end result.

I hope your well. I read your amazing story. I wanted to know how to get someone off dialysis. What things did you do that are the most useful? I agree the nurses have a fixed mindset.

Posted by Raj (London) on 07/03/2016

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!!

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.

Baking Soda
Posted by Oren (Hessmer, Louisiana, Usa) on 06/30/2010

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.

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.

Thank you for this interesting information. Can you please give the amounts of Comfrey, Raw Kidney Glandular plus, and what you take as a growth hormone (and I must ask the point of the growth hormone for kidney disease). Gail (PS, do you also use Sodium Bicarbonate and ACV. I was unable to tolerate ACV which irritated GERD. I understand that mineral water is very alkaline, but that minerals my be difficult for the kidneys to process. Do you have an opinion on this. Thanks, Gail

Mimosa is effective for Uremia.

I have introduce mimosa to my friends in philippines and they are thrilled with the results.

One old man with liver and kidney problem was sent home to die as his condition is serious and he can`t pass urine at all.After taking mimosa he can pass urine smoothly and his liver and kidney function is improving.Now he is on his way to recovery.

A old lady with liver problem take mimosa for her high fever. After taking mimosa, her fever went down.She is still taking mimosa for her liver problem.

Should anything be mixed in distilled water or nothing should be mixed in the DW?

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.

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.

Hi Brian,

May I ask how much lemon juice did you drink and how often during that 48 hour fast?

Also, was the lemon juice straight undiluted freshly juiced or did you dilute it with water?

Did you drink the lemon juice away from the fresh comfrey leaves or sipped it while eating the comfrey leaves?

Regarding the comfrey leaves, you said you ate about 7 leaves during those 48 hours of fasting, so about 3- 4 leaves per day. Did you eat those 3- 4 leaves all at once in one sitting or one leaf every 3- 4 hours.

Do you think dry powdered comfrey leaves would work as well, most people don't have access to fresh comfrey leaves unfortunately.. :(

Sorry for all these question and thank you in advance
