Is There Any Way to Revive the Kidney

I have a question. My wife has renal failure -- is there any way to revive the kidneys? She is on dialysis. thanks.

To revive or reverse renal failure, I have know what bought about that condition. Assuming the following most common causes are either high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney infection, glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, kidney stones or kidney infections being the most common ones.

High blood pressure can be dealt with by reducing high blood pressure through simple reduction in sugar, fats, and more alkalizing remedies. The alkalizing remedies either apple cider vinegar and baking soda or the lemon and baking soda seems to reduce high blood pressure, by promoting the body to a laxative mode, so the fluids retention are reduced that way. It helps quite a lot to add about 1/8 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate to the original apple cider vinegar and baking soda remedies, or the lemon and baking soda remedies. The alkalization also reduces the body's buildup of calcium through a reduction in leeching effect of the acid blood on the body's bone, whereby reducing the excess serum calcium which tends to cause excess calcium buildup causing polycystic kidney disease and kidney stones. The reduction in blood calcium has the advantage of preventing bacteria or mycobacterium attachment to the calcium which will also reduce as well. As for the glomerulonephritis, my own experience is to simply reduce the inflammation such as the use of lavender oil. However glomerulonephritis is an antibody response, but my own experience is they happen because bacteria or mycoplasma attached to the body's cells caused the white blood to attack it own cells. The way to loosen that grip at least from my own observations are plenty iodine supplements and reduction in fungus, either through the use of borax 1/8 teaspoon in one liter of drinking water once a week, and/or the use of vitamin D4 20,000 I.U. but I think should be taken together with the magnesium supplements to balance the critical magnesium:calcium issues too. It is the boron found in borax which also helps balance the magnesium:calcium ratios too.

As a general remedy for kidney problems it is necessary for me to control four parameters: blood pressure, urinary sugar, urinary pH, and urinary cloudiness.

Blood pressure or reduction within normal parameters can be done traditionally by use of diuretics. But this point doesn't make sense if the renal function is impaired, in which case the reduction of water retention makes more sense in the use of laxatives in a severe case, or a milder case of using alkaline acv+baking soda through more frequent bowel movements which would also reduce fluids thus bypassing the damaged renal function.

Basically I used a brix refractometer (the 1-10 scale) where the normal brix is about 1.5-2, so if the urine Brix reading (which measures sugar level of urine) is above that value, such as 5 or above, I would drink more water until the values goes to about 2. Once the body is diluted sufficiently with water, the urinary sugar concentration is reduced to normal allowing a chance for a kidney to heal whenever the parameters of the fluids become normal. There is little chance that if the body's fluids become abnormal that they will miraculously recover.

The second value I need to get normal is the urinary pH, which using a simple 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon citric acid plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium bicarboante in 1/2 glass of water, taken a minimum of two times a day necessary to raise the urinary pH to about 7 or close to 7.3 where the blood terrain pH is about 7.3. If the kidneys were able to bathed in such a normal pH parameter that is considered healthy, the alkalinity would give it a much better chance of recovering than, a kidney subjected to acid baths, where its pH is below 6. If a kidney is in an acidic urine for long enough time, it would eventually gets digested by the acid, as similarly as stomach digesting foods we eat everyday.

Urinary cloudiness sometimes indicate excess proteins (from infection) and sometimes from excess calcium. In most cases it is from acidosis which cause excess calcium and I have found magnesium citrate 250 mg. and vitamin B complex to be rather helpful. However, I believe vitamin B complex should not be taken everyday as they are acid forming from the vitamin B6 which is often in a hydrochloride form, and instead taken 2 times a week, while magnesium citrate can usually be taken at 5 days out of a week, so that the body can balance out the critical magnesium: calcium, where most of the diets are too little magnesium anyway.

Basically to recover renal function, getting urine pH to 7.0-7.3 through alkaline remedies mentioned, re

ducing urinary sugar to 1.5 or 2 by drinking more water, reduction of high blood pressure through the use of alkalinity or laxative, depending on the seriousness of the blood pressure, and reduction of calcium and infection through the use of alkalizing remdies or aromatherapy such as lavender oil applying to the back area. The strategy is simply to get the body's fluids to normal parameters and once it is within normal parameters gives a chance for the kidney function heal itself.
