Further information for those who would like to do further research:
I have had so many clients recently with kidney disorders, I thought it would be good to share my findings with you all.
The main functions of the kidneys are the removal of metabolic waste matter, of any toxic material and excess of water, minerals, and bio-chemicals in order to keep their blood levels within an optimal range. This is done by filtering the blood and concentrating the waste in the form of urine. In addition, the kidneys produce hormones, which affect the salt balance and red blood cell production.
A common kidney disorder is the formation of kidney stones. These are mostly composed of calcium salts and to a lesser degree of uric acid. Stones can partly block the flow of urine and this may result in infections as well as accumulation of waste matter in the blood. The passing of large stones through the urethra can be extremely painful and is called kidney colic.
When patients come to see you it is important to discuss diet and where their water source comes from. Also remember that parasites can cause acid and bacteria.
Stone formation as well as bacterial infections or accumulation of toxic material may lead to acute or chronic inflammation of the kidneys, also called nephritis or Bright’s disease. Symptoms are a rise in blood pressure, back pain, fatigue, being listless and loss of appetite. Later oedema may develop; one may feel dizzy and nauseated. Albumin, a protein compound, will be passed in increasing quantities with the urine. Our Boldo Tea, Essiac Tea and Bladder & Kidney support help here and I often use Tissue Salt # 9 to help clear waste matter.
I have found that if the condition continues to deteriorate, uraemia or renal failure develops. High concentrations of waste matter accumulate in the blood and all of the mentioned symptoms become more severe. If nothing is done about it, death will eventually occur. The conventional medical treatment is the removal of these waste materials by filtering the blood through an external membrane, a dialysis machine or artificial kidney. When the condition deteriorates still further, a kidney transplant is attempted.
Prevention as well as cure begins with two simple measures: raising the water intake (NOT TAP WATER) and reducing the salt intake. Disregarding these basic rules is the main cause for the high incidence of kidney disease ESPECIALLY IN HOT CLIMATES.
Further important nutritional factors in the development of kidney disease are a high intake of protein, phosphate and calcium, a low intake of magnesium and vitamin B6, and finally, chronic inflammation due to food allergy, especially foods with herbicide on them such as glyphosate.
Proteins are generally high in phosphorus. Therefore, by restricting the protein intake the amount of phosphate ingested or formed in the body is reduced at the same time. With a severe restriction of protein and phosphate intake, tests showed a 10 to 40 fold decrease in the progression of kidney disease and patients who would normally have required immediate commencement of dialysis could postpone this for about seven months.
A high protein and phosphate intake imposes a greatly increased workload on the kidneys. If their functions are already impaired by stone formation or inflammation, then the individual filtering units become more and more sclerotic, which means they calcify and harden through overgrowth with tough, fibrous tissue. This causes large amounts of protein to be lost with the urine while other chemicals, such as salt and uric acid remain in the body.
High phosphate levels also cause an overactivity of the parathyroid glands with a resultant rise in calcium blood levels. This may lead to decalcification of bones and to the formation of calcium deposits as with kidney stones, arteriosclerosis and arthritic deformations. It raises the blood pressure and damages the kidneys still further, in particular through calcification of the kidneys with calcium phosphate.
In addition to a high phosphate intake, a diet high in protein produces much more waste products than any other class of nutrients, especially in the form of urea, uric acid and sulphates. Compared to proteins there is hardly any residue in a properly metabolised carbohydrate or fat diet. Both produce carbon dioxide and water as end products. Therefore, with these foods there is hardly any need for dialysis.
Patients with severe renal failure should restrict their protein intake to less than 20 g and phosphorus to less than 400 mg. For children and as a maintenance diet amino acid supplements may be necessary with severe protein restrictions.
A major cause of degeneration of the kidneys is chronic inflammation, and a major cause of chronic inflammation is hidden food allergy and chemical sensitivity, these are commonly due to microbes from intestinal dysbiosis or root canal treatments. Intestinal issues are now researched to be connected to herbicide. While kidney patients are hardly ever tested for food allergy in conventional medicine, in one recent test it was found that about 65% reacted positive. However, due to their high calcium and often low acidity levels, kidney patients usually show only a weak allergy response with various testing procedures. Therefore, the only reliable test is the avoidance of all suspected foods and checking kidney functions after a prolonged period of abstinence. In this way patients improved greatly..
Various calcium salts are only slightly soluble and easily precipitate during the filtration process in the kidneys. They may then crystallise and combine to form kidney stones or urinary calculi. It has been estimated that about 90% of such stones contain calcium as main ingredient, mainly as phosphates and oxalates. Phosphate stones are chalky and soft while oxalate stones are small, dark and hard. Stones may also contain a mixture of both. Uric acid stones form mainly in acid urine and are yellow or black. A few stones are formed from the oxidised amino acid cystine with a waxy appearance.
A high protein diet contains a large amount of phosphate that overstimulates the parathyroids and raises the calcium blood level. This gives rise to the formation of calcium phosphate stones, especially when the urine is alkaline.
Sucrose, the common household sugar, has several negative effects. One experimentally controlled study found that sugar added to a meal will greatly increase urinary calcium as well as oxalate excretions and that both reach maximum levels together, thereby greatly increasing the possibility of precipitation.
This over-saturation of the kidneys tends to result in calcific lesions that serve as foci on which crystals begin to aggregate and start to form stones. Sugar also increases the urinary output of an enzyme that is indicative of kidney disease. Most at risk from sugar are individuals with an excessive insulin response and this includes most stone formers.
In addition, insulin levels remain permanently elevated in maturity-onset diabetics and others due to habitual sugar consumption. They are also elevated in stressed individuals as the blood glucose levels become less sensitive to insulin in the presence of high adrenalin levels. Increased insulin levels in turn elevate the blood calcium levels that then lead to an increased concentration of calcium in the urine. It has been experimentally shown that stone-formers lose up to five times the normal amount of calcium in the urine after ingesting 100 g of sucrose. In one study about 60% of habitual stone formers had an excessive insulin response to sugar. Another demonstrated effect of high sucrose and fructose consumption is a rise in blood levels of uric acid.
Vitamins, Minerals and Stimulants
Two minerals with a negative effect are sodium and cadmium. In one study stone-formers normalised their excessive calcium levels by restricting their sodium intake.
Cadmium is a heavy metal that is significantly increased in stone-formers. It causes renal tubular damage and can lead to calcific foci with increased oxalate crystallisation. A group of coppersmiths with chronic cadmium exposure had a 40% incidence of kidney stones as compared to 3.5% in the general population. This substance has been found in South African water sources due to industry and mining. If you feel to check your water tests are readily available today, and I would suggest you recommend this to your clients.
Citric acid is essential for cellular energy production. Elderly individuals and those on diets high in meat and fat have low levels of citric acid. Citric acid also prevents individual crystals of calcium salts from fusing together to form stones.
In one experiment long-term supplementation with sodium citrate did not reduce stone formation while potassium citrate reduced stone formation by 86% in susceptible individuals. Citrus fruit provide a high intake of potassium citrate.
There is an antagonism between calcium and magnesium due to a common regulation through the parathyroids. Increased magnesium supply tends to lower the calcium loss and inhibits the precipitation of calcium salts in the kidneys. In two long-term studies magnesium supplementation reduced the incidence of calcium stone formation by more than 90%.
Vitamin B6 is essential for the normal metabolism of oxalic acid. A deficiency leads to accumulation of oxalic acid. In one study oxalate stone formation was reduced with 60 mg vitamin B6 daily but not with 20 mg. In another study with intakes from 75 to 600 mg of vitamin B6, supplementation with 150 mg daily was found to be optimal for oxalate reduction in the urine.
In addition, vitamin A, folic acid and zinc may help to reduce stone formation and supplementation can be of advantage. Low levels of these cause various common nutrients to form oxalic acid.
Long-term coffee drinking or caffeine in general has been shown to result in increased calcium loss. Two cups of coffee caused an additional calcium loss of 22 mg per day. In addition, with oxalate-related stones foods high in oxalic acid are best avoided, such as rhubarb, cocoa, instant coffee, spinach and tea.
Excessive tea drinking, for instance, has been blamed for the high incidence of oxalate kidney stones of the British troops in India during the Second World War. However, generally the effect of dietary oxalic acid is negligible, except if one eats much refined food. With a healthy, mainly unrefined diet most of the oxalic acid combines in the digestive tract with calcium to form insoluble calcium oxalate, which is then excreted. Only in diets low in fibre, vitamin B6 and calcium is dietary oxalate a contributing factor to stone formation.
There have been allegations that high intakes of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) may lead to the formation of oxalate kidney stones. While there is a slight elevation of oxalate in urine with mega doses, various controlled studies have not found increased stone formation. On the contrary, there are indications that the higher urine acidity from ascorbic acid helps to prevent or dissolve phosphate kidney stones. This, of course, is valid only for ascorbic acid, not for calcium or sodiumascorbate. Nevertheless, in case of uraemia or kidney failure a high vitamin C intake would contribute to the workload of the kidneys and supplements should not exceed 1 g daily.
While all proteins increase phosphorus levels to some degree, animal protein, especially from meat, has an additional detrimental effect on stone formers. In comparison to vegetarians urine excretions of calcium, oxalate and uric acid are 50 – 400% higher in non-vegetarians. The higher the intake of animal protein, the higher is the level of these stone-forming substances. Stone formers usually have the highest intakes of animal protein.
It has been calculated that the risk of stone-formation is about 6 – 700% higher in those with a high intake of animal protein as compared to vegetarians. In addition, meat is the main source of uric acid. While urate stones represent only a minority of kidney stones, elevated levels of uric acid cause calcium oxalate to precipitate and crystallise.
HYPERCOAGULATION AND CALCIFICATION
A main cause of deteriorating kidney functions is the increasing calcification of the filtering system. A common sequence leading to kidney failure starts with antibiotics that initiate overgrowth with Candida, mycoplasmas and other microbes. This results in leaky gut syndrome and allergies, microbial infestation of the blood, and chronic inflammation. As a consequence of this inflammation the blood clotting mechanism becomes overactive in a condition called hypercoagulation.
Fibrin is a sticky protein fibre. It naturally cross-links to form blood Nattokinase, derived from natto, a fermented soy product as traditionally used in Japan, appears to be the most effective fibrinolytic enzyme. It is commonly available as capsules with 2000 FU or units of fibrinolytic activity. The normal maintenance dose is one capsule each before breakfast and dinner, best in a non-protein drink or followed by some fruit.
However, to clean already clogged blood vessels and dissolve clots I use HEART CARE which act as a oral chelation, cleaning veins and blood. This is taken with Water Life to balance the removal of necessary minerals from this treatment.
Serrapeptase originally derived from silkworms, may be less effective in dissolving clots but does dissolves other dead tissue, such as scar tissue, adhesions and cysts. Commonly 20,000 to 80,000 units may be in a capsule, the maximum dose may be up to 400,000 per day.
Bromelain breaks down all kinds of unwanted protein residues. Activity tends to me measured as Gelatine Dissolving Units or GDU, commonly 2000 GDU/gram. You can find this in organic pineapples.
Removing Soft Tissue Calcifications
With increasing age our bones tend to become softer as calcium moves out and accumulates in soft tissues, such as blood vessels, on the outside of joints, in muscles, brain and glands. This causes not only inflammation, pain and rigidity but also arteriosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, cataracts and loss of memory. The underlying cause tends to be an under-active thyroid and overactive parathyroid glands due to chronic Candida and mercury problems.
Accumulations of toxic metals, and especially mercury from dental amalgam fillings and vaccines, are a major problem with many diseases. Use oral chelation to reduce this toxic load. (Our Heart Care) and Natural Solutions Heavy Metal Eliminate, combined with using Zeolite.
Sulphur compounds are needed to detoxify the liver.
One of the strongest metal chelators is alpha lipoic acid (also called thioctic acid), which may be combined with milk thistle (extract) to activate the liver. Chlorella (cell broken powder) prevents re-absorption of expelled metals from the intestines. Further helpful are MSM, N-acetylcysteine, alpha-tocopherol, and ascorbic acid.
Use a low-allergy semi-vegetarian diet based mainly on fresh raw and steamed vegetables. The amount of animal protein as well as high-protein legumes should be determined by the condition. If it is not too serious, that is if dialysis is not required or expected, then fish may be used occasionally, also a few eggs per weak and a small to moderate amount of yoghurt or cottage cheese made of goats’ milk.
However, in more serious conditions and also as temporary mild cleansing periods, avoid completely all animal protein and soybeans and use other legumes only in moderation, preferably in sprouted form. Brown rice and other non-gluten grains, cooked and raw vegetables as well as extra-virgin olive oil may provide the bulk of the energy requirement. Between and before meals have some tart or acid fruit, such as grapefruit, orange, pineapple, berries and apple. Except with low blood pressure and sensitive skin, you may also have fruit meals and fruit days.
Foods of special benefit are fresh vegetable juices, including wheat grass and other grasses and leaves with plenty of parsley and celery, also dandelion leaves if available, green beans and bean pod tea, cucumber, horseradish, lemon juice, fenugreek, watermelon and banana. If available frequently have a small amount of Jerusalem artichoke about the size of a hen’s egg. Preferably go for several months on a raw vegetable and fruit diet.
We can live healthily on a diet very low in protein only if most of that protein is raw or unheated. Good sources for this are sprouted seeds and fresh vegetable juices, especially juice of grass and leaves. In addition frequently stir a teaspoon of spirulina powder and wheat grass or barley grass juice extract powder into a glass of juice or water and drink before or between meals.
Minimise meat, sugar and sweetened food, cow’s milk products and wheat products, processed food with added chemicals, salt or salted food, polyunsaturated oils and margarine, soft drinks, rhubarb, coffee, tea, alcohol, nicotine, baking powder, and medicinal drugs.
Drink plenty of good quality water, rainwater or soft bore water, otherwise filtered or distilled but definitely no chlorinated or fluoridated water. Drink 1 l each 30 to 60 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may drink water or weak herb teas, diluted vegetable juices or water with lemon juice.
Frequently have cleansing periods mainly on fruits only, mostly tart and acid varieties. Also fasts on watermelons are excellent; chew the seeds as well. However, sensitive individuals should use fresh vegetables in preference and also fresh vegetable juices. Reintroduce normal food gradually after a fast and watch for any sign of allergy such as a high pulse rate, pain, discomfort or rash and especially any deterioration in kidney functions.
Warning: If on dialysis do not stop your normal dialysis routine when starting on this nutritional program. Instead phase it out gradually according to the results of your urine and blood analysis tests.
