Kidney Failure

Posted by Christine on 10/18/2007

Hi Ted, I desperately need your help! My uncle suffered a stroke about a year ago so his left side is very weak.He has kidney failure doctors say only 10% working and recommend dialysis. His blood pressure has been averaging 170-180 and blood sugar 220-280. Is there anyway to revive his kidneys, lower his blood pressure, and control his diabetes?Thank you so much for your time. Anxiously awaiting your response.

The most important element in a kidney failure is the need to control the blood pressure. A high blood pressure will damage the kidney organs quite fast.While I cannot afford most conventional medicine, I usually resort to using natural medicine by reduction of blood pressure, in an emergencies through the use of laxative, as being the prime importance.

While there ARE more direct methods (such as the use of trace sodium nitrites with baking soda), those are not easily available to the public, a simple laxative medicine I used is milk of magnesia, or the use of epsom salt (which is better form) and follow the instructions as per packaged laxative medicine.

One issue that is important is the milk of magnesia should not have other chemicals, besides the usual peppermint oil, water, and magnesium hydroxide. The epsom salt, should just have the epsom salt. Once the first bowel movement comes, the blood pressure will be reduced quickly.

Chlorine, fluoride, bromine (from white flours & white bread uses the bromine process of bleaching), vegetable oils, fried foods and COMMON table salts are my biggest enemies to high blood pressure. Bread and table salt, but fluoridated water and flouride toothpaste, and chlorinated tap water showers should be avoided just the same.

One example, is my own mother, who just yesterday, went to eat JUST fried chicken and NO SUGAR, suddenly had her blood sugar shot up to 170, the very next day,despite her usual no sugar diet. The negative effect is also seen from just salt free potato chips and french fries. A doctor at a medical school could cause the entire medical students to be diabetic within 24 hours just taking vegetable oils only.

People also underestimate the negative effects of free fatty acids from fried foods and vegetable oils (which came into existent in popular use in 1960s, and diabetes has been a main fixture just the same period.'

Hence it is important for me to avoid vegetable oils (high in trans fatty acids), fried foods, oily foods,and fatty foods, except ocassional essential oils (usually weekly) that the body needs such as gamma linoleci acid, omega 3, etc. To counter such negative effects, glycine amino acids can reduce such negative effects as it reduces the free fatty acids.

Alkalization, in case of a severe high blood pressure, another remedy would be more ideal such as 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate, in 1/2 glass of water taken 3 times a day, as one way to reduce the high blood pressure.

Common table salts should be replaced with sea salt,as companies tend to add aluminum compound to the common table salt to look nice, but that causes the nice looking bleached sea salt to be quite acid. My own common table salt pH is 5, technically a good salt should have a neutral pH of 7. A sea salt is much closer to our alkaline blood than a common table salt, such as 7.5-8.0 (our blood pH is 7.35).

Finally dinner should be avoided completely if at all posible during this kind of emergencies and if necessary might be replaced those with just eating carrots, celery (no salad dressing!), and other more vegetarian diets during the dinner hours, if there is a necessity to do that.

Giving the kidney a chance of recovering requires at least three important parameters that needs to be controlled quickly:

1. Blood pressure (most important)

2. Alkalinity (get a cheap electronic pH pocket meter, take frequently enough of the baking soda/potassium bicarbonate) to get the urinary pH to a close 7.0, a 6.8 or 6.9 would do fine.

3. Controlling the blood sugar is generally difficult considering that to reduce blood sugar requires the kidneys to work harder. And to take blood pressure medicine to reduce blood pressure makes no sense either as it causes the kidneys to work harder. The only way to reduce the blood pressure is to get rid of the excess water via the intestines, thus bypassing the kidney, and hence drinking more water and taking laxative medicines, while alkalizing is the safest way I can think of to reduce the blood pressure.

In addition to controlling blood sugar, adding 1/8 teaspoon or 1/16 teaspoon of cinnamon spices, or the use of cinnamon oil dipped in toothpicks, that children use them as a candy can help the body control the blood sugar too.

However my standard way to reduce blood sugar is simply to take 1 tablespoons of granulated lecithin, twice a day. Once in the early afternoon, and another once in the evening.

If a high blood pressure due to diabetes, which do occur quite dangerously in the late evening, a best remedy I can come up with (helped save lives many times over with this one) and the simplest of all remedy is just 2 tablets well dissolved in 1/4 glass of water of aspirin, assuming the aspirin is 250 mg each. The blood pressure should lower from the sugar lowering effects of aspirin within about 30 minutes.

If a more effective remedy is called for adding chromium polynicotinate to the aspirin helps a lot. The aspirin is synergistic with chromium that controls blood sugar as aspirin helps increase the bioavailability of the chromium, which controls the blood sugar.

One additional remedy to help with cellular recover,besides lowering blood pressure, reducing blood sugar , and controlling the pH is the use of an allantoin supplement (only trace amounts) or ANY allantoin creams applied to the lower back regions where the kidneys reside. The allantoin allows the cellular recovery and repairs. Most aloe vera creams, and any allantoin creams will help in this respect.

Kidneys get damaged primarily (in most kidney disease) in the long run, by the urine's own ACID pH. Acid pH can be so acid, it causes the kidney to get digested, much like eating your own kidneys allowing the stomach acid to do the digesting. Usually kidney damages due

to such acid condition occurs whenever the urinary pH is below 6, but can get severely damage if the urinary pH is about 5. A neutral urinary pH, at the very least at pH of 7, is usually in the safe region, but a urinary pH of 7.35, is in equilibrium with the blood pH and puts the kidney stress to almost zero.

The second thing is high blood pressures can blow up the delicate capillary of the kidneys much like blowing up car tires whenever too much air was put into the the tires.

Sugar can damage the kidney the same, but it is not as severe as the first two. Sugar in excess simply prevents healing and the sugar crosses cross linked to proteins to the organs. However cross linking can be reduced with l-Carnosine, 500 mg three times a day.

Green tea no sugar no milk can also reduce the tightness and free radicals as well as blood sugar to some extent if they were taken three times a day.

Reduced tigntness effect and diuretic properties should help with such problem, but I prefer to deal with getting some improvements of alkalization, blood pressure, and sugar first.

One of the most common death I have seen from diabetes and kidney disease besides the hospital infections as a result of using a dialysis machines from I.V. is that people do not use aspirin as a means to contolling blood sugar and high blood pressure.Aspirin as I have found is quite good in controlling blood pressure caused by diabetes. And a long term kidney problems due to excess acidity of urine, leads to kidney damage. Alkalization can help.

The one area I haven't mention is kidney disease from excess calcium (where citrates from lemon and baking soda, and magnesium can help) and excess uric acid (where lithium supplements 5-15 mg can help). Those are usually of non-diabetic kidney problems.

The body can heal if we just give the body an environment favorable for a recovery.

A stroke, can be reduced or prevented if a regular magnesium supplements, aspirin, and alkalizing, especially the use of a baking soda and lemon remedy. The baking soda is 1/2 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoon in 1/2 glass of water, taken twice a day, once in the

morning and once before sleep. Citrates reducesunnecessary calcium buildup in the body, which leads to blood clotting, and this is why a citrates is added to blood banks to that the blood recipient won't die of a stroke whenever a blood is received.

Citrates are just simple chemical reaction of lemon and baking soda, which prevents blood clotting from excess of calcium. It is the excess of calcium which causes unnecessary strokes, in many cases of people who work at blood banks trying to prevent blood clots.
