PROTECT YOUR KIDNEYS – Part 4 By Tony Akinyemi
With the exception of a few individuals, all of us are born with two kidneys that constitute part of the URINARY SYSTEM & ELIMINATIVE ORGANS of the body. In Part 1, we looked at some of the common diseases that afflict the kidney. In Part 2, we addressed the causes and symptoms of kidney diseases. In Part 3, we explored strategies for protecting our kidneys from damage. In this Part 4, we shall be taking a look at some REMEDIES for Kidney Impairment. Enjoy!
- NATURAL PROTECTION & REMEDIES:
- PROTECTING YOUR KIDNEYS:
We have addressed this already in Part-3.
- REMEDIES FOR KIDNEY IMPAIRMENT:
- Anti pathogenic Formulae: Garlic, Oil of Oregano, Olive Leaf Extract, etc, can help with Urinary Tract Infection.
- Cranberry (it contains D-mannose) that deactivates E. coli and prevents it from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract.
- Probiotics – helps in preventing infection.
- Proteolytic enzymes, L-Carnosine, Antioxidants, DMSO.
- CHANCA PIEDRA (Phylantus niruri) for addressing kidney stones.
- Eliminate all animal protein (if you have kidney impairment). Become VEGETARIAN until your kidneys bounce back.
- Building PCV – Those with kidney impairment usually have low PCV (i.e. low blood levels) and high blood pressure. To boost PCV, take chlorophyll, beet root juice, and iron-rich foods such as okra & unripe plantain), folic acid, B-12.
- DIALYSIS: Those with serious kidney impairment that has resulted in very high blood CREATININE and UREA levels may benefit from dialysis in the meantime. The dialysis machine is designed to do part of the work of the kidney (remove waste products from the blood). Dialysis at a dialysis centre/hospital may cost anything from N20,000 to N50,000 per session. Some people might need to do two sessions per week. You can do the Math and see how much it will cost to maintain a person on dialysis monthly and annually.
- KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: This is the final stage in kidney disease remedies. Once the kidneys have packed up, a transplant is the only way out except a miracle happens. A kidney transplant patient will live on immune-suppressing drugs for life so that the body will not reject the kidney. This deliberate immune-suppression has its own implications too – recurrent infections, etc. Some kidney transplant patients are able to live long after the transplant, but most die within 5 years of the transplant. This is why we must all do everything in our power to protect our kidneys. Please read Part-3 of my article again to refresh your memory about how to protect and care for your kidneys.
FAITH & RESPONSIBILITY: Above all, faith in God for divine healing is a critical factor in all healing programs that will last. Also, we must show responsibility in taking care of ourselves, especially our kidneys.
