"Kidney Health This remarkable fungus has been relied upon by physicians in China for benefit in the treatment of chronic kidney diseases such as chronic nephritis, kidney failure, chronic pyelonephritis, and others. Studies also show that it has a protective effect against chemicals toxic to the kidneys. For example, one study of thirty patients with chronic renal failure found treatment with Cordyceps resulted in an overall significant improvement in kidney function."

"One of the functions of the liver is to convert stored fat to energy; another is to support kidney function. According to Maia Appleby author of "Why Drinking Water Really Is the Key to Weight Loss": If the kidneys are water-deprived, the liver has to do their work along with its own, lowering its total productivity. It then can't metabolize fat as quickly or efficiently as it could when the kidneys were pulling their own weight. If you allow this to happen, not only are you being unfair to your liver, but you're also setting yourself up to store fat."

"Another example, said to apply to 18% of kidney transplant patients, concerns a woman whose new kidney was rejected, not because of a mismatch but because she thought the transplant operation was the end of the problem. She therefore no longer felt a need to take drugs to suppress her immune system. Without the drugs, the body sensed the foreign kidney and rejected it. As researchers started to look in more detail at why people don't take their drugs, they found that patients and doctors have very different priorities."

"Juncos and Donadio concluded that either fluoride was damaging the kidney or that fluoride was not being removed from the body because of an already damaged kidney. The possibility that fluoride damaged the kidneys in these cases is supported by evidence from the Yerkes Primate Research Center in Atlanta and Cornell University which show that 1 to 5 parts per million fluoride causes interference with enzymes in the kidney and kidney damage in laboratory animals. Dr. George Waldbott of Warren, Michigan observed fluoride-induced diseases in over 400 cases of fluoride exposure."

"The yeast Candida albicans is the most notorious culprit in post surgical kidney infections. kidney infections which fail to improve despite repeated antibiotic therapy are likely due to yeast infestation. The yeasts thrive in the kidneys and may provoke repeated bladder infections; they may also cause bladder and vaginal yeast infections. The health dramatically improves when the kidneys are sterilized of all invaders. Kidney infection combat kit • oil of oregano — take 3 drops under the tongue three times daily. Also, take 10 to 20 drops in juice or water three times daily."

"This question comes up because most kidney stones contain calcium, and many doctors tell people who have kidney stones to avoid calcium. Those doctors are wrong! Kidney stones in men and women are not caused by excess or even normal levels of calcium. If anything, careful studies show that extra calcium, even taken as a supplement, reduces the risk of kidney stones. The research clearly proves extra calcium does not cause kidney stones."

"Kidney Disease • kidney disease is ninth among causes of premature death. • It kills more than fifty thousand people per year. • kidney problems affect thirteen million Americans (5% of the population). • There were 182,000 Americans on dialysis in 1996. • In 1996, there were twelve thousand kidney transplants from a waiting list of thirty-five thousand. Healthy kidneys cleanse our blood supply by filtering out waste materials and excess fluid. They also produce hormones needed for building red blood cells, strengthening bones, and regulating blood pressure."

"The HMO doctors ordered kidney tests periodically over more than five years but failed to check on them or to compare them to each other—or they would have noticed that the results were gradually moving from the normal to the abnormal range, indicating that her kidney function was gradually deteriorating. Dotty never gave the tests any thought and assumed she would be informed if anything abnormal was showing up. By the time the test results were noticed, Dotty was already displaying symptoms of weakness and fatigue with excessive urination and thirst."

"Dialysis, to filter the blood of people with chronic kidney failure, became a reality in the 1960s. In 1972 the Social Security Act was amended to extend Medicare coverage to all patients with end-stage renal disease, covering all the costs of chronic dialysis. About 250,000 Americans are alive today because they have access to ongoing dialysis. Successful transplantation of hearts, lungs, and livers have been lifesaving. Transplantation of kidneys and corneas allows people to live normal lives. Hip and knee replacements have restored comfort and function to millions of Americans."

"The Chinese kidney system is also not simply confined anatomically to the paired physical organs of the kidney we know in Western conventional medicine. It also includes the adrenal (or suprarenal) glands involved in producing adrenaline and steroids, both necessary, in balance, for our appropriate fight-or-flight reactions. So already, associating the kidney with the emotion of fear seems less bizarre, even for those of us heavily conditioned by the scientific method. Closely aligned to the emotion of fear is our innate sensitivity to the world around us."

"Some of the findings are disconcertingly marginal: there is a suggestion that intensive therapies decreased the likelihood of some microvascular complications, notably the surrogate measures of leakage of protein from blood vessels in the retina or in the kidney. However, this ef- feet did not translate into fewer patients suffering from kidney or eye damage. Intensive therapy did not alter the likelihood of peripheral neuropathy."

"In fact, NSAIDs have been shown to cause gastrointestinal bleeding, as well as liver and kidney toxicity, which have limited their usage with the elderly. Similarly, another popular news story has been that estrogen therapies will protect the brain and slow Alzheimer's. Again, most clinical trials have found that using estrogen to treat AD is not effective, and a link has been established between estrogen therapy and breast cancer. A large study found that women who took estrogen alone or with a synthetic progestin were actually at increased risk of developing dementia."

In contrast, some foods are seldom reactive. These foods are a good source of nutrition for people who are trying to restrict commonly reactive foods. These foods also often constitute the diets of people who are doing elimination challenges, in which they restrict all potentially reactive foods, and then add them back in, one at a time, to see if they cause reactions: Rice. Pears. Lamb. Kale. Salmon, halibut, sole Trout."

"Liver function. kidney function. • Electrolytes (including C02 levels). Calcium levels. • Magnesium levels. • Blood sugar. • Lipids. • Cholesterol. • Triglycerides. Thyroid function (including T3, T4, and TSH). As you can see, even these very basic tests can be confusing to people outside the medical profession. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that you consult with a doctor. The Healing Program is, for the most part, administered at home, under the direct supervision of parents, working in partnership with their doctors. The Healing Program is not a do-it-yourself treatment plan."

"Many people who have kidney stones go on the low-oxalate diet. Some kids who do not thrive on the specific carbohydrate diet do better with this approach, possibly because the SCD encourages the consumption of flour made from nuts, which are high in oxalates. Besides interfering with calcium metabolism, excessive amounts of oxalates can be toxic, and they can significantly interfere with proper function of the gut."

"Because of noni's high potassium content, it could pose hazards to your kidney and liver, especially if consumed in excess.

"Cranberries are laden with phytochemicals that cure urinary infections and fight everything from kidney stones to cholesterol to ulcers. They also contain proanthocyanidins, called PACs, that surround harmful bacteria so they can't stick to our insides. The supermarket fruits we eat contain negligible traces of protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, sodium or fat (except avocados). Some have moderate amounts of dietary fiber. Where fruits excel is in their high levels of vitamins and minerals."

"Diisononyl phthalate (DINP), the most commonly used phthalate in soft plastic vinyl children's toys, has been shown to cause liver and kidney damage and cancer in laboratory animals. The government does not require inclusion of phthalates on ingredient lists. As a general rule, I recommend that you avoid teethers, pacifiers, and other soft plastic toys that are not specifically labeled "phthalate free." Be particularly careful with a vinyl toy that is ripped or torn, since the tear is where the phthalates are most likely to escape. For more information on phthalates, please visit www.mindfully."

"These potentially dangerous toxins, which make PVC plastics soft and pliable, have been linked to kidney and liver damage, as well as endocrine disruption. Because phthalates are used to soften plastics, they are traditionally used in teething rings and other chew toys for babies, as well as beach balls and bath toys for older children. (In general, the stiffer and harder the toy is, the less likely it is to contain phthalates."

"Dough conditioners, in general, can cause mineral deficiencies, and ammonium sulfate in particular may cause mouth ulcers, nausea, and kidney and liver problems. • Brown sugar is merely white sugar with molasses added. • Partially hydrogenated soybean oil is a trans fat associated with heart disease, breast and colon cancer, atherosclerosis and elevated cholesterol. It is even worse than saturated fat. As you can see, this "all-natural" bread will not help you on your road to health."

"Economic and social stressors •Spread of the Western media, which encourages consumption •Increase in portion size •Pervasiveness of cars and global transportation •Possible genetic disposition to overconsume These rising rates of obesity have led to a higher incidence of hypertension, diabetes, stroke, heart disease, kidney failure, and pregnancy complications, and also portend negative consequences for the brain."

"The primary method of treatment is major surgery to either remove the kidney with the damaged artery or to transplant a majot artery from another organ to the kidney. Adrian's sister had her kidney removed. After her sister's operation (which was successful), Adrian went to her family doctor, who found her blood pressure to also be gteatly elevated, just like her sister's. He advised her that she had the same condition and would need to be scheduled for surgery before her kidney was too badly damaged to be saved. Disttaught, she decided to seek a second opinion."

"Morton and Siegel found a significant Deduction in certain antibodies that teact with DNA and cause kidney damage. "Although we are not sure about the mechanism of action, DMSO and MSM may act by decreasing inflammatory responses and the production of autoantibodies and immune complexes," they concluded, recommending further studies. Systemic lupus in humans is a destructive disease. It typically damages kidneys, and many people with the condition require kidney transplants. When MSM is taken as a supplement, patients demonstrate improved kidney function."
