Natural Remedies to Prevent Kidney Disease

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Posted by Jan (Rochester, Ny, Usa) on 05/07/2010

I am looking for information on reversing kidney damage and find ACV and baking soda combinations most often suggested. Can anyone explain how they are both appropriate, since one is an acid and one a base? Don't they cancel each other out? And if an acid (ACV) brings forth an alkalizing response in the body why doesn't the baking soda do the opposite and make the body more acidic?

Hey. Why in many places it is said ACV to be bad for kidney disease cause of it's huge amount of potassium and here it is recommended? Kind regards: Dreamer

Flaxseed Tea

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.

@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.

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.

Hey. I read about your message including usage of Comfrey herb and on this website is said that is can cause liver damage if used internally so how to use it improve kidney function ? Also what kind of Growth Hormone would be safe to use if low kidney function?

@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. 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.

Any help will be highly appreciated. Liz

Lizeth.. (San Francisco)

Have you heard of urine therapy. It's drinking your own urine for your kidneys.. There is a lot of information on it on utube .. I don't know much about dialysis but can you filter urine enough to drink ? Only downside is if you are on medications you can't drink your own urine as it puts back the medications into the system.. so you have to watch out for that.

There is also a naturopathic doctor I found on Utube . HIs name is Robert Morse and he sells some great kidney formulas.. I am using one and going to get another one. they are herbs.. not sure of the outcome as I just started them.. google him or go to utube and watch his videos. Also he is a big advocate for raw foods so the body can heal itself....only thing you have to study these things yourself and see what is best for you.. for me I follow my gut feelings..Dr. Morse will also take your letters and not sure how it works but he might be able to help you if you reach out to his office. He is located in Florida..

My granddaughter had a kidney transplant. Before she did, I read a lot about the kidneys, I would suggest that you read about mastic gum. It is used in some countries for kidney function. There is a lot of things you can do. For my grand daughter since she is a child, they couldn't do much without the doctors permission. My daughter did start an appropriate diet for her and both her and her mom (the donor) are doing good.

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

Your last statement about his situation when he gets a cold or under stress tells me that he could have an infection in the kidney area and when he gets a cold then the immune system that is producing antibodies is diverted; hence the kidney infection re asserts itself. Try colloidal silver.. The kind with high silver to water ratio. Find someone who makes it by the simple 27 volt method. Sometimes you get a very diluted kind in the health food stores. I have been given "specialty" silvers and tried it on sinus infection only to see the special silver did nothing to help me. When I reverted to the old stand by type of silver made with 27 volts, infection killed immediately. For your son, use the silver on empty stomach, for a week at least. A long standing infection might take even longer to knock out.

Hi, I read your post on Colloidal Silver (CS) and kidney infection. You mention a certain kind of CS that is higher quality. Can you please tell me where to get it? I get the kind at the health food store. Is this okay? I do not have the tools to make my own, nor the energy as I am physically disabled. Would be most appreciative for your help.

Sincerely, CL

Corn Silk
Posted by Tan Koon Peng (Singapore) on 07/02/2008

Wonderful Corn Silk For Kidney Problems:

Corn silk has been used to treat various urinary disorders and is a diuretic.
It is effective in treating acute and chronic inflammation of the urinary system.
In Chinese medicine it is used as a treatment for water retention.

A sweet, soothing and cooling herb with diuretic properties, stimulates bile, helps prostatitis, enuresis in children, prevents the formation of stones in the kidneys, clears bladder and urinary tract infection, and lowers blood sugar levels.

Corn silk tea has a soothing effect on kidney, bladder and urinary problems, and can clear up pus, infection, burning or scalding urine. It will also soothe inflammation of the urinary passages due to gravel or kidney stones, and regulate the flow of urine (whether too much or too little), in cases of bladder drip and incontinence -inability of the bladder to hold urine-and urine retention or stoppage of urine. It seems to heal diseased areas of the kidneys, bladder and urinary passages and flush out uric acid, toxins and other poisons.

A simple way to prepare corn silk.Wash corn silk and put it in a cup,pour in boiling water and cover the lid. Wait for 15 minutes before drinking. Corn silk can be reused many times. Do not throw corn silk away after your first drink.

For those who can afford the time to cook herbs. Corn silk plus China barley would be more effective for kidney problems!

Benefits of BARLEY-dysuria,hydrops,whites,ascariasis,beriberi,abscess,mouth ulcer!China barley

Important: Use only China barley! Holland barley is not so useful

Direction for use

Use 2 litres of water and bring it to a boil,put in corn silk and China barley.Switch to low flame and cook for 1 hour.This herb is suitable for everybody young and old to detox their body of toxins! To be taken on empty stomach for best results or 2 hour to 3 hour after food for better absorption.Drink these herbs regularly for good results.Take your time and consume the solution slowly sips by sips throughout the day.

Do not use aluminum pot to cook herb,cooking herbs in aluminum pot will cause a chemical reaction resulting in a slow form of poisoning!

This formula is suitable for kidney dialysis patients.

Correction to my previous post: Corn silk is not suitable for kidney dialysis patients because of it's high Potassium content due to dialysis machine.

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.

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.

If you want to get rid of a bladder or urinary tract infection DO NOT take antibiotics. Otherwise, the infection will just keep recurring. Use a capful of organic apple cider vinegar in water and drink throughout the day. This turns your body and pH alkaline. If your body is alkaline, then bacteria, viruses and fungi die. They ONLY live in an acidic environment. Do you know that people with cancer are ALL Acidic! This is the problem in this country. We are loaded with acidic foods and wonder why disease is so prevalent.
