How To Protect, Strengthen and Restore Your Kidneys to A State of Health
By Stephen Heuer
What do healthy kidneys do in your body?
- Regulate the body’s fluid levels
- Filter wastes and toxins from the blood
- Release a hormone that regulates blood pressure (The Renin-Angiotensin System)
- Activate Vitamin D to maintain healthy bones. (Hydroxylation of Vitamin D precursors to active Vitamin D, calcitriol).
- Release the hormone that directs production of red blood cells (Erythropoietin)
- Keep blood minerals in balance (sodium, phosphorus, potassium)
Every 30 minutes, your kidneys filter all the blood in your body, removing waste and excess fluid.
What are the most common causes of Kidney Disease?
Diabetes is number one:
- Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease.4
- In 2013, diabetes led to more than 51,000 new cases of kidney failure. 4
- Over 247,000 people are currently living with kidney failure caused by diabetes.4
- Over 29 million American adults have diabetes.10
- Of these, nearly 8.1 million are undiagnosed.
- More than 35% of all people age 20 or older with diabetes have kidney disease.
High Blood Pressure and Cardiovascular Disease are number two:
- High blood pressure is the second leading cause of kidney disease.4
- In 2013, high blood pressure led to more than 33,000 new cases of kidney failure.4
- 165,000 are currently living with kidney failure caused by high blood pressure. 4
- 73 million American adults have high blood pressure.
- 20% of all Americans with high blood pressure don’t know they have it.9
- Since high blood pressure usually has no symptoms and can affect anyone at any age, it’s important to have regular blood pressure check-ups.
- Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of people with CKD.16
- Individuals with early stages of CKD are more likely to die from heart disease than to reach end stage kidney disease.17
- 1 in 10 Americans will have a kidney stone during his or her lifetime.
- Each year, more than half a million people visit emergency rooms for kidney stone problems.
- White Americans are more prone to developing kidney stones.
- Men are much more likely than women to develop kidney stones.
Drugs Are Another Cause Of Kidney Disease:
I knew a man who took Ibuprofen daily from his mid twenties onwards, for his chronic pain. I believe he was in his early 30’s when he suffered kidney failure from the Ibuprofen and died.
The Top Ten Drugs That Cause Kidney Damage Are:
- Antibiotics, including ciprofloxacin, methicillin, vancomycin, sulfonamides.
- Analgesics, including acetominophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID): aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and others available only by prescription.
- COX-2 inhibitors, including Celebrex. Two drugs in this class have been withdrawn from the market because of cardiovascular toxicity: rofecoxib (brand name Vioxx), and valdecoxib (brand name Bextra). These drugs are a special class of NSAID that were developed to be safer for the stomach, but have the same risk as other NSAIDs for kidney damage.
- Heartburn drugs of the proton pump inhibitor class, including omeprazole (brand name Prilosec), lansoprazole (brand name Prevacid), pantoprazole (brand name Protonix), rabeprazol (brand names Rabecid, Aciphex), esomeprazole (brand names Nexium, Esotrex).
- Antiviral drugs, including acyclovir (brand name Zovirax) used to treat herpes infection, and indinavir and tenofovir, both used to treat HIV.
- High blood pressure drugs, including captopril (brand name Capoten). People with damaged kidney function frequently have high blood pressure and are prescribed high blood pressure drugs, which is almost guaranteeing that they will have kidney failure. It happened with one of my clients that got off dialysis from using Synergy One and was off of dialysis for 3 years, then started on high blood pressure drugs and forcing him back onto dialysis again.
- Rheumatoid arthritis drugs, including infliximab (brand name Remicade); chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, which are used to treat malaria and systemic lupus erythematosus as well as rheumatoid arthritis.
- Lithium, used to treat bipolar disorder.
- Anticonvulsants, including phenytoin (brand name Dilantin) and trimethadione (brand name Tridione), used to treat seizures and other conditions.
- Chemotherapy drugs, including interferons, pamidronate, cisplatin, carboplatin, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, quinine, mitomycin C, bevacizumab; and anti-thyroid drugs, including propylthiouracil, used to treat overactive thyroid.
For many prescription drugs, you can find the full prescribing information online. This information is typically 10 – 30 pages long, and includes detailed precautions, warnings, and adverse effects.
How Common is Kidney Disease?
- 1 in 3 American adult is currently at risk for developing kidney disease.1
- 26 million American adults have kidney disease — and most don’t know it.3
- Major risk factors for kidney disease include diabetes, high blood pressure, family history of kidney failure and being age 60 or older. Additional risk factors include kidney stones, smoking, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
- Those at risk should have simple blood and urine tests to check if their kidneys are working properly.
- Kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death in the United States.
- Men with kidney disease are more likely than women to progress to kidney failure.15
- Black Americans are 3 times more likely to experience kidney failure.7
- Hispanics are 1½ times more likely to experience kidney failure.7
- Once the kidneys fail, dialysis or a kidney transplant are the only options offered from the allopathic medical community.
- More than 661,000 Americans have kidney failure. Of these, 468,000 individuals are on dialysis and approximately 193,000 live with a functioning kidney transplant.4
- Of more than 120,000 people waiting for lifesaving organ transplants in the U.S., 100,102 await kidney transplants (as of 4/25/16). Fewer than 17,000 people receive one each year.8
- Every day, 13 people die waiting for a kidney.8
What are the Signs and Symptoms of Kidney Failure?
- Because kidney disease often has no symptoms, it can go undetected until it is very advanced.6
- In its advanced stages, some signs of kidney disease include:
- Fatigue, weakness
- Difficult, painful urination
- Foamy urine
- Pink, dark urine (blood in urine)
- Increased need to urinate (especially at night)
- Puffy eyes
- Swollen face, hands, abdomen, ankles, feet
- Increased thirst
- Early detection and treatment can slow or prevent the progression of kidney disease.6
Testing for Kidney Function would be testing for BUN and Creatine levels in the blood and for the GFR in the urine. Glomerular Filtration Rate
(GFR) for males should be 100-125 ml/min and for females is should be 90-115 ml/min. If the GFR falls below 90 and continues to decline then your kidneys are headed towards failure. I’ve had a client go from a GFR of 20 to 50 from only drinking fresh vegetable juices. Drinking an abundance of fresh pressed green juices prior to having kidney failure helped this one client of mine immensely. However, once kidney failure has occurred and you are on dialysis, the large amounts of potassium from the green juices may be unsafe to consume. Excess potassium in the system can cause heart arrhythmia.
The kidneys are involved in the production of vitamin D. Vitamin D from the diet or synthesis from sunlight via the skin is biologically inactive; activation requires enzymatic conversion (or hydroxylation) in the liver and kidneys, the massive amount of vitamin D deficiency seen in our culture today stems from lowered kidney function. I believe that due to Advanced Glycation Ends products from dry heating cooking of meats, Chronic Hidden Viral Infections, previous antibiotic usage, drugs, alcohol and refined white sugar and GMO foods that people’s kidneys are being damaged at an accelerated rate and the tendency to diminished kidney function is high. Chronic Kidney Disease is emerging as an all too common health problem in the Westernized world today.
Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, can be produced in the body with mild sun exposure or consumed in food or supplements.
AdequatevitaminD intake is important for the regulation ofcalciumand phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a protective effect against multiple diseases and conditions such ascancer,type 1 diabetesandmultiple sclerosis.
Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, helping to:
- Maintain the health of bones and teeth
- Support the health of the immune system, brain and nervous system
- Regulateinsulinlevels and aiddiabetesmanagement
- Support lung function and cardiovascular health
- Influence the expression of genes involved in cancer development.
In spite of the name, vitamin D is considered a pro-hormone and not actually a vitamin. This is because the body is capable of producing its own vitamin D through the action of sunlight on the skin, while vitamins are nutrients that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be acquired through the diet or supplements.
It is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows the body the ability to produce sufficient vitamin D, but vitamin D has a half-life of only two weeks, meaning that stores can run low, especially in winter. Recent studies have suggested that up to 50% of adults and children worldwide are vitamin D deficient. There are several likely factors contributing to vitamin D deficiency, which will be looked at further in this article.
Vitamin D is produced when sunlight convertscholesterolin the skin into calciol (vitamin D3). Vitamin D3 is then converted into calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D3) in the liver. The kidneys then convert calcidiol into the active form of vitamin D, called calcitriol (1,25-hydroxyvitamin D3). As such, statins and other medications or supplements that inhibit cholesterol synthesis, liver function or kidney function can impair the synthesis of vitamin D.
Mounting evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency could be linked to several chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and cancer. The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and its correlates to test the hypothesis that vitamin D deficiency was common in the US population, especially in certain minority groups. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2005 to 2006 data were analyzed for vitamin D levels in adult participants (N = 4495). Vitamin D deficiency was defined as a serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations ≤20 ng/mL (50 nmol/L). The overall prevalence rate of vitamin D deficiency was 41.6%, with the highest rate seen in blacks (82.1%), followed by Hispanics (69.2%). Vitamin D deficiency was significantly more common among those who had no college education, were obese, with a poor health status, hypertension, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, or not consuming milk daily (all P < .001). Multivariate analyses showed that being from a non-white race, not college educated, obese, having low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, poor health, and no daily milk consumption were all significantly, independently associated with vitamin D deficiency (all P < .05). In summary, vitamin D deficiency was common in the US population, especially among blacks and Hispanics. Given that vitamin D deficiency is linked to some of the important risk factors of leading causes of death in the United States, it is important that health professionals are aware of this connection and offer dietary and other intervention strategies to correct vitamin D deficiency, especially in minority groups.
If you have already received a kidney transplant then the goal would be to assist the body in producing enough stem cells and converting those cells into your own kidney cells with your own DNA. I have heard of a case history where this happened. The person was using KDN Medix over 2 years time was able to convert his transplanted kidneys entirely into his own DNA. Thus eliminating the need for immunosuppressant drugs. In addition to KDN Medix I recommend using a pulsed electromagnetic pad device, as this may assist the body in making more stem cells in the bone marrow. Having used two other supposed Rolls Royce pulsed Electro Magnetic devices, I’m convinced that the best Pulse Electro Magnetic Pad device on the market that, that I’m aware of is the Bemer device.
Nutrients to support a restoration of Kidney Health:
Protein digesting Enzymes: It is essential to kidney health to be able to digest proteins in the meal to insure optimal amino acid absorption. Therefore taking a plant derived digestive enzyme supplement with each meal is essential to this goal. Taking a full spectrum digestive enzyme with high levels of protease is the best type of enzyme supplement to consume. I recommend the powdered version and consuming ½ tsp. to 1 level tsp. per meal. If using caps then consuming 5 to 10 caps per meal is recommended. LiyfZyme: supplies a full spectrum and high concentrations of powerful digestive enzymes. Due to the broad spectrum of enzymes, high concentrations and affordability LiyfZyme is my choice amongst all the digestive enzyme products on the market today.
Enzymes in between meals: Research now indicates that the pancreas is a transformation organ involved in converting metabolic enzymes into digestive enzymes. What does this mean? We are all born with a certain enzyme potential. Left in a raw state the food naturally has enzymes in its tissues that will digest that food. The cooking of foods destroys the naturally occurring enzymes in that food. Since cooking is the most common way of eating food, this puts a big burden upon the body to have to produce all of the enzymes needed to digest this food. This always results in an increase in white blood right after eating cooked food. The white blood cells come to the rescue to donate enzymes for digestion and for eating up the unusable damaged molecules caused from cooking. As we age the body steals the metabolic enzymes needed to make organs and tissues work and via the pancreas transforms them into digestive enzymes. This depletes organs of metabolic enzymes and causes them to decline in function or to age. Hence taking 1/8th tsp. of digestive enzymes mixed with 4 ounces of water and 1/8th tsp. of Prodosomes, taken on an empty stomach, may go a long ways to restoring all organ systems metabolic enzyme levels.
Prodosomes are phospholipids that coat the enzymes and insure that the enzymes are absorbed into the blood stream. Once in the blood stream they circulate to all parts of the body and will digest undigested proteins, fats and starches and potentially donate themselves into the organs for the organs to use them as metabolic enzymes.
N-Sorb: Addresses the systemic enzyme needs of the body are taken between meals.
Chitosan aka Trident: Has been shown to help people with kidney failure. With only 45 milligrams taken 3x per day, it worked to lower urea, cholesterol and increase hemoglobin production. Patients noticed increases in energy and appetite from consuming Chitosan.
Diabetics need the benefits of Chromium supplementation:
Chromium is an essential mineral for human nutrition and aids in the normal function of insulin – one hormone that is critical for the normal regulation of blood sugar. The essentiality of chromium was discovered by mistake – individuals who were in the hospital receiving liquid nutrition were developing diabetes. When chromium was added to the nutrition packs (total parenteral nutrition or TPN), diabetes was prevented.
Following this discovery, several nutrition researchers began trying to understand how chromium functions in our cells. Eventually an elaborate model was pieced together that seems to explain the function of chromium and its role in blood sugar regulation; in brief, chromium is stored inside of our cells bound to a small protein, when insulin binds its receptor chromium assists in the insulin message and then is excreted from the cell and ultimately from the body (Vincent et al. 2000). This process seems to occur in a glucose-dependent manner, i.e. higher sugar = greater insulin-binding (assuming normal function) = more chromium losses. Chromium in a highly absorbable form of a Prodosome can be obtained from Prodovite.
Acemannan is a mucopolysaccharide found in the gel of the aloe vera plant. It has been studied and found to be powerful for the immune system. The benefits of Acemannan include it being an immunostimulant, antiviral, antineoplastic and gastrointestinal properties. Acemannan is a long chain sugar that interjects itself into all cell membranes. This results in an increase in the fluidity and permeability of the membranes allowing toxins to flow out of the cell more easily and nutrients to enter the cell more easily. This result is better cellular metabolism throughout the body and an overall increase in energy production. This is of great benefit to the normal and healthy functioning of the kidneys.
In the gut, the polysaccharides in aloe vera have been shown to act as strong anti-inflammatory agents, neutralizing many of the enzymes responsible for damaging the mucosal wall. This can result in decreased inflammation of the intestinal wall and less absorption of allergic stimulating foreign protein as well as enhancing the repair of the intestinal tissue. Research has also demonstrated direct viricidal, bactericidal, and fungicidal properties, which can help control Candida overgrowth so the normal gastrointestinal bacterial flora can be restored. It has also been found that these polysaccharides stimulate intestinal motility, improving the elimination process to move allergenic proteins from the small intestine into the colon. All these processes can help to normalize gastrointestinal wall structure and function and therefore stop the viscous cycle of immune system damage.
The Wound Hormone The Ukrainians are credited with preliminary research concerning a “wound hormone” found in certain plant tissues. They observed that this plant hormone accelerated the healing of injured plant surfaces. Using skin lesion models in rats and rabbits they observed that this plant “wound hormone” had the same effect in mammals. Testing was done by injection and topical application. The topical application was much more rapid and complete resulting in a systemic response and accelerated healing. Additional research found that Aloe vera gel was a safe and effective source of the “wound hormone” which was later identified as Acemannan. It is the Aloe inner leaf gel that is known to stimulate and accelerate wound healing processes. However, many aloe-based wound products currently on the market fail to produce the desirable effect due to the absence of Acemannan. Aloe Vera and Acemannan can be obtained from Prodovite.
Fish Oils and Flax Oils: Recent studies showed that Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acid (PUFA) supplementation slowed the rate of loss of renal function in patients with IgA nephropathy. Then, studies of omega-3 supplementation in dialysis patients describe beneficial effects on triglyceride levels. We examined the relationship between total plasma PUFA levels and change in creatinine clearance over a three-year follow-up in the older persons enrolled in the In CHIANTI study, a population-based epidemiology study conducted in Tuscany, Italy. This study showed that older adults with low total plasma PUFA levels have a greater decline in creatinine clearance over three years of follow-up. These findings suggest that a higher dietary intake of PUFA may be protective against progression to chronic kidney disease.
Increasing Glutathione Production
All organ and tissue systems are dependent upon Glutathione for protection for free radicals, aka oxidative stress and the neutralization and removal of all toxins. The excess of free radicals in the kidneys contributes to the tubule cell injury, which occurs during acute renal failure. A healthy cell is supposed to produce 10% of its protein content as glutathione, but due to toxicity and aging this in not occurring. Taking glutathione is not nearly as helpful as causing the body to be able to produce glutathione within the cells of the body. The key to achieving this is a combination of getting rid of intestinal inflammation and consuming the nutrients that most strongly support glutathione production.
The amino acid glycine has been shown to more strongly protect the kidney tubules than glutathione supplementation. Glycine is one of the three amino acids that make up glutathione. Taking a Free Form Amino Acid supplement with Glycine in it can only be helpful in protecting the kidneys. Since free from amino acids are not denatured by heat they will not pose an excess nitrogen waste burden to the kidneys. Therefore taking All Basic a free form amino acid supplement will reduce the need for cooked dietary proteins, which burden the kidneys and supply 20 amino acids needs for a myriad of functions that benefit the body.
Regarding Glutathione production, taking the supplements that most strongly support Glutathione production is the key and here they are: One World Whey and ThionExtra.
When Chronic Kidney Disease exists, the body is in a chronic acid pH state. Since the blood pH has to remain between 7.35 to 7.45 at all times or you die, the body sacrifices the hemoglobin protein within the red blood cells to maintain the correct blood pH. This causes anemia. However more iron is not the answer. The body tends to store plenty of iron within the spleen and liver. It is more a matter of correcting pH. There are two means that can be used in combination to correct the pH of the body.
One is the traditional method of bringing in more alkalizing substances. Alkaline water, alkalizing calcium’s, vegetable juices, Megahydrate etc. However the primary cause of a chronic acid pH has to do with poor conversion of glucose into ATP or energy. Under ideal cellular conditions the mitochondria within the cell should convert each molecule of glucose into 38 units of ATP. Due to toxins, cell damage, nutrient deficiencies and an acid pH, the cell becomes compromised in converting glucose into energy. In the most extreme example a tumor cell creates 2 units of ATP for each molecule of glucose and a whole lot of lactic acid. So the primary and most important means of correcting whole body tissue pH is to improve the mitochondria’s ability to convert glucose into energy. This can be accomplished when all the nutrients needed by the mitochondria are introduced to the inside of the cell.
You’d think that just consuming a good diet and maybe some fresh juices, and taking some supplements would insure that all nutrients you need, would get into the cells of your body in an optimal manner. But such in not the case, even with an organic diet with juices, for many people the nutrients needed within the cells are not getting in on a moment to moment basis fast enough or at all. Thanks to recent neutraceutical developments a patented process now exists to insure that the nutrition the cells need gets into the cells. When the basic vitamin, minerals, and herbs needed by the body can get into the cells, then the cells can create energy in an optimal manner. This lowers the production of lactic acid to a minimal level, increases energy production, produces a more alkaline pH in the body and simultaneously causes your blood and cells to begin to be able to use oxygen and water. This translates into every cell of the body becoming healthier.
Prodovite helps correct cell metabolism so that body and blood pH can return to normal.
The kidneys are also involved in alkalizing the body with the production of bicarbonate ions. There are numerous acids that come into the kidney that must be neutralized to protect the kidneys and body from damage. Carbonic and other acids under ideal conditions with healthy kidney function will be neutralized with the bicarbonate production from the kidneys. However when struggling with Chronic Kidney Disease they become compromised in their ability to do this. Therefore adding some mixed bicarbonates, which are alkaline minerals as found in Alkabase may be very helpful to the kidneys and whole body to recover health.
Crossing Linking and Aging:
ARGININE RETARDS GLYCOSYLATION, AND THEREFORE AGING
Durk Pearson said, “One very important thing about arginine is that it is a very powerful sacrificial target for cross-linkers. If nothing else gets you, you’re going to end up having to go on kidney dialysis at the age of 90 or 100 or 120, because, throughout your lifetime, cross-linking reactions are taking place in the collagen in the basement membrane of your kidneys.” (See Figure 2.)
The vital filtering component of the glomerulus is thebasement membrane,which “encases” the capillary walls. Among the benefits of arginine are protecting this membrane from age-related degradation (glycosylation reactions) and providing the nitric oxide needed by the capillary epithelial cells for optimal functioning.
By chemically “sacrificing” itself, arginine interferes with a kind of reaction that tends to damage the proteins in certain membranes by cross-linking them. This reaction, calledglycosylation,causes the membranes to thicken and harden, a classic symptom of aging. By inhibiting glycosylation, arginine protects and preserves the membranes, and thus the functions of the organs of which they are a part – in this case, the kidneys, whose basement membranes are involved in the filtration of metabolic waste products (mostly urea) from the blood.
By taking All Basic or All Basic Plus you will be getting a more generous supply of Arginine and when used in combination with Prodovite, there will be polyphenol synergists that will help to create more generous amounts of Nitric Oxide for a longer time. The Arginine acts one to protect basement membranes of the kidneys from succumbing to glycosylation and cross-linking. The Arginine also supports nitric oxide production. Nitric Oxide will support keeping the arteries clean of plaque, protecting against cancer and helping to keep blood vessels dilated so blood reaches all parts of the body.
Magnesium: Is needed to lower high blood pressure, it is also needed for the body to eliminate excess calcium and phosphorus that build up in the body of people with CKD. Not all magnesium is equal and if you take one that is too large of a particle it can build up in the body and cause problems. So taking a highly absorbed form is essential. The magnesium in the Prodovite product is in the patented Prodosome delivery system and should safely address the body magnesium needs. However since Magnesium is a macro mineral required in large amounts by the body. Then the 50 milligrams of magnesium per serving in Prodovite may not be enough. Taking up to 700 milligrams a day has proven successful in one CKD sufferers case. There is magnesium in green foods and juices and there is 50 mg of Magnesium per each ounce serving of Prodovite. But if more magnesium might be therapeutically helpful to you, then, using an angstrom or a 1 to 10 atom particle of Magnesium would be best. ReMag is a good way to address extra magnesium needs.
Malic Acid: It is speculated by researchers that consumption of malic acid induced systemic alkalinization leading to reduced renal tubular reabsorption and metabolism of citrate, and an increase in excretion of the latter. We conclude that malic acid supplementation may be useful for conservative treatment of calcium renal stone disease by virtue of its capacity to induce these effects.
Malic acid is present in the product Prodovite.
Quercetin: Since oxidative stress is a cause of kidney damage any substance that can neutralize this oxidative stress in the kidneys is conducive to kidney health. Treatment with Quercetin significantly attenuated renal dysfunction and oxidative stress in diabetic rats. Quercetin is one of many flavonoids that all have antioxidant effects. The product Prodovite has a blend of Bioflavonoids from rose hips in it.
Flax Seed Oil and Lignans aka Secoisolariciresinol:
Kidney Benefit: As seen in clinical trials, Secoisolariciresinol has the ability to moderate proteinuria and preserve renal function. “We conclude that dietary protein substitution with flaxseed meal reduces proteinuria and glomerular and tubulointerstitial lesions in obese SHR/N-cp rats and that flaxseed meal is more effective than soy protein in reducing proteinuria and renal histologic abnormalities in this model.”
Selenium: Is needed by the body to make the enzyme Glutathione peroxidase whose main biological functions is to reduce lipid hydroperoxides their corresponding alcohols and hydrogen peroxide to water. It also makes Thioredoxin reductases. Thioredoxin reductases, exists in all living cells and has an evolutionary history tied to DNA as a genetic material, defense against oxidative damage due to oxygen metabolism, and redox signaling using molecules like hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide. Some studies have reported that Se status and immune function improve after oral and intravenous Se supplementation in renal patients, reducing the products of oxidative stress
70 mcg of Selenium is found in each one ounce serving of Prodovite.
Taurine shows many protective functions for the kidneys. One benefit was found by researcher, Trachtman who has reviewed the evidence that taurine functions as a protective agent against toxicity-induced forms of glomerulonephritis. When dealing with Chronic Kidney Disease I believe supplemental Taurine can give benefits. This can be supplied from the Amino Acid supplement called All Basic.
Vitamin C: Can act as an antioxidant protection to the kidneys. Studies show vitamin C in combination with E supported a lowering of blood pressure in salt treated rats. Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids is needed for connective tissue repair, of which connective tissue is part of the make up of kidneys. 60 milligrams of vitamin C and Bioflavonoids are in each one-ounce serving of Prodovite.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D from the diet or dermal synthesis from sunlightis biologically inactive; activation requires enzymatic conversion (hydroxylation) in the liver and kidney.Thus under functioning Kidneys is a significant cause of vitamin D deficiency. The vitamin D endocrine system plays an essential role in calcium homeostasis and bone metabolism, but research during the past two decades has revealed a diverse range of biological actions that include induction of cell differentiation, inhibition of cell growth, immunomodulation, and control of other hormonal systems. Prodovite supplies 400 IU of Vitamin D per one ounce serving, it may be beneficial to take 5000 IU two per day in addition to the 400 IU – 2 to 3 times per day from Prodovite.
Vitamin E: may slow kidney failure owing to oxidative stress. 15 IU’s of Vitamin E can be obtained in each one-ounce serving of Prodovite.
Zinc: Since the body of a person with CKD is acidic and the blood is sacrificing red blood cells to donate hemoglobin proteins to neutralize acids. The body’s response to this is to loose more iron and zinc. It is the amino acids Arginine, Histidine and Lysine coming from the broken down Hemoglobin that are acting as alkalizers for an overly acidic body. Creating a zinc deficiency. Evidence to support this is found in PubMed.
Therefore the correct dosages needed of supplemental zinc would be of great benefits to a person with CKD. Zinc may help protect the kidneys via the production of metallothioneins, which aid detoxification and are an antioxidant protein. 10 mg of highly absorbable Zinc can be obtained from each one ounce serving of Prodovite.
Any disease process including Chronic Kidney Disease has inflammation as a factor. Any herb that can have a strong anti-inflammatory effect can be beneficial to restoring Kidney Health. Herbs with a strong history of use to support kidney health are:
Astragalus: Preliminary research suggests Astragalus may help protect the kidneys and may help treat kidney disease. More studies are needed. Other studies show evidence that when used with conventional treatment that Astragalus may help to decrease the serum creatinine, reduce the amount ofproteinlost in urineand diminish the effects of some complications, such as anemia and malnutrition….. The real reason for anemia is due to the chronic acid pH of the body. The red blood cells are sacrificing the hemoglobin protein to buffer or make more alkaline a blood threatened by excess acids entering into the circulation. So correcting pH in the body will most likely solve the anemia. Astragalus is found in Prodovite.
Cyperus Rotundus: is used both as a functional food and as a drug. The extract exhibited high reduction capability and powerful free radical scavenging, especially against 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and superoxide anions as well as a moderate effect on NO .
Dioscorea: There are six herbs that make up RF, namelyRehmannia glutinosa, Fructus corni, Dioscorea, Poria cocos, Alisma, andPaeonia suffruticosa. On the basis of the publications found in PubMed during the period 2000–2009, RF appears to have beneficial effects on blood glucose, neuropathy, and nephropathy.
Rehmannia glutinosa: ameliorates the progressive renal failure.
Ganoderma lucidum: has a long history of use for promoting health and longevity in China, Japan, and other Asian countries. It is a large, dark mushroom with a glossy exterior and a woody texture. The Latin wordlucidusmeans “shiny” or “brilliant” and refers to the varnished appearance of the surface of the mushroom. In China,G. lucidumis called lingzhi, whereas in Japan the name for the Ganodermataceae family is reishi or mannentake. According to theState Pharmacopoeia of the People’s Republic of China(2000),G. lucidumacts to replenish Qi, ease the mind, and relieve cough and asthma, and it is recommended for dizziness, insomnia, palpitation, and shortness of breath.
Astragalus, Cyperus, Dioscorea, Rehmannia, Ganoderma can all be found in Kidney Well II.
Also, poor blood flow to any tissue causes acid accumulation and a decrease in pH. When the hydrogen ion concentration changes from normal, the kidneys excrete either an acid or alkaline urine, thereby also helping to readjust the hydrogen ion concentration of the body fluids back to normal.
The kidneys, although providing the most powerful of all the acid base regulatory systems, require many hours to several days to readjust the hydrogen ion concentration.
The kidneys alone produce about two hundred and fifty grams (about half a pound) of bicarbonate per day in an attempt to neutralize acid in the body.
The kidneys monitor and control the acidity or “acid-base” (pH) balance of the blood. If the blood is too acidic, the kidney makes bicarbonate to restore the bloods pH balance. If the blood is too alkaline, then the kidney excretes bicarbonate into the urine to restore the balance. Acid-base balance is the net result of two processes, first, the removal of bicarbonate subsequent to hydrogen ion production from the metabolism of dietary constituents; second, the synthesis of “new” bicarbonate by the kidney.
John,a dialysis technician at the same center as Dr. Hariachar, who used to be on dialysis himself for 2 years as a result of kidney failure, had his kidneys miraculously start functioning to the point where dialysis was no longer needed. He states that he was prescribed oral doses of sodium bicarbonate throughout his treatment, and still takes it daily to prevent recurrences of kidney failure. Dr. Hariachar maintains though, that taking bicarbonate will help not everyone. He says that those patients who have difficulty excreting acids, even with dialysis using a bicarbonate dialysate bath, that, “oral bicarbonate makes all the difference.”
It is considered that normal adults eating ordinary Western diets have chronic, low-grade acidosis, which increases with age. This excess acid, or acidosis, is considered to contribute to many diseases and to contribute to the aging process. Acidosis occurs often when the body cannot produce enough bicarbonate ions (or other alkaline compounds) to neutralize the acids in the body formed from metabolism and drinking highly acid drinks like Coke, Pepsi and we are even seeing reports on bottled mineral water being way too acidic.
Acid buffering by means of base supplementation is one of the major roles of dialysis. Bicarbonate concentration in the dialysate (solution containing water and chemicals (electrolytes) that passes through the artificial kidney to remove excess fluids and wastes from the blood, also called “bath.”)should be personalized in order to reach a midweek pre-dialysis serum bicarbonate concentration of 22 mmol/l.Use of sodium bicarbonate in dialysate has been shown in studies to better control some metabolic aspects and toimprove both treatment tolerance and patients’ life quality. Bicarbonatedialysis, unlike acetate-free biofiltration, triggers mediators of inflammation and apoptosis.
One of the main reasons we become acid is from over-consumption of protein. Eating meat and dairy products may increase the risk of prostate cancer, research suggests.We would find the same for breast and other cancers as well. Conversely mineral deficiencies are another reason and when you combine high protein intake with decreasing intake of minerals you have a disease in the making through lowering of pH into highly acidic conditions.When protein breaks down in our bodies they break into strong acids.
Unless a treatment actually removes acid toxins from the body and increases oxygen, water, and nutrients most medical interventions come to naught.
These acids must be excreted by the kidneys because they contain sulfur, phosphorus or nitrogen which cannot break down into water and carbon dioxide to be eliminated as the weak acids are. In their passage through the kidneys these strong acidsmust take a basic mineral with them because in this way they are converted into their neutral salts and don’t burn the kidneys on their way out.This would happen if these acids were excreted in their free acid form.
Substituting a sodium bicarbonate solution for saline infusion prior to administration of radiocontrast material seems toreduce the incidence of nephropathy.– Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy American Medical Association
Bicarbonate ions neutralize the acid conditions required for chronic inflammatory reactions. Hence, sodium bicarbonate is of benefit in the treatment of a range of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Sodium bicarbonate is a well studied and used medicine with known effects. Sodium bicarbonate is effective in treating poisonings or overdoses from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating their cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects.It is the main reason it is used by orthodox oncology – to mitigate the highly toxic effects of chemotherapy.
Sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy metals, dioxins and furans.Comparison of cancer tissue with healthy tissue from the same person shows that the cancer tissue has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc.
Sodium bicarbonate injection is indicated in the treatment of metabolic acidosis, which may occur in severe renal disease, uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac arrest and severe primary lactic acidosis. The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects of medicine. In general, the American public is heavily acid, excepting vegetarians, and even their bodies have to face increasing levels of toxic exposure, which help turn the body to acidic pH conditions.
Since high blood pressure is the second leading cause of Kidney failure, something must be done to lower the high blood pressure. As stated before high blood pressure as well as many other drugs damage the kidneys and can cause kidney failure. Nature always has an answer if we look. The following herbs have a historical usage for contributing to healthy blood pressure.
Hawthorn Berry Extract: Hawthorn berry is a traditional herbal remedy clinically shown to help improve the blood supply to the heart by dilating the hearts
vessels. Hawthorne also appears to help support the metabolism of the heart. *
- Holly leaf extract. Holly Leaf has been used as a folk medicinal tea in China for centuries. Recent studies suggest Holly leaf helps expand blood vessels to help support circulation and blood flow to the heart. *
- Daikon seed extract. Daikon seed has been used for a thousand years as a traditional herbal remedy. Studies suggest that Daikon seed helps maintain
cardio-vascular health and helps support healthy blood pressure. *
This following graph is the result of studies done with a combination of these herbs to lower blood pressure:
The combination of these effective blood pressure lowering herbs can be found in the product Holistrol.
For the kidneys to heal they must not be burdened with excess nitrogen wastes. This means that the type and amount of protein in the diet is critical. Ultimately the body is attempting to disassemble amino acids from protein and then give them to the liver for reassembly into albumin and other proteins. In order for the body to actually use the amino acids from food, those amino acids have to be in the exact same shape that nature originally gave them. If they are bent or twisted the body cannot use this kind of an amino acid. This bent and twisted amino acid occurs from cooking foods at normal cooking temperatures. This damaged amino acid is called denatured.
So obtaining proteins that are the least denatured is the best form of protein to support healing. From foods this would be raw milk colostrum or raw milk or raw milk whey, raw eggs, raw plant protein powders, non-denatured whey protein powder and supplemental free form amino acids that have a balance of the broadest spectrum of the 20 amino acids the body relies on to make all proteins in the body. The products I recommend for supplemental protein and amino acid needs are All Basic or All Basic Plus– (All Basic Plus has Tryptophan in it which is good to take if you feel the need to calm down.) and One World Whey.
Growth factors are proteins or cholesterol derived compounds within the body that instruct the cells to open up and absorb amino acids. Once amino acids are inside the cell, the cell can make protein to heal itself or contribute to some other important body function. Growth factors are at there peak in the body between the ages of 18 and 28, the time when you have the most energy and are most protected from disease. After age 28 growth factor production begins to decline by 10% each decade. So by age 60, when Chronic Kidney disease is common to occur, you have 32% less production of your growth factors than when you were 28.
By taking growth factor supplements you can promote an increase in growth factors in your body and an improved rate of overall repair of the body. The two products I’ve seen or heard clinically significant results with are Synergy One (formerly Chrysalis) and KDN Medix.
Synergy One supports the bodies’ production of IGF-1. The unique means by, which Synergy One supports the increasing the production of IGF-1 in the body can result, is improved repair of all tissue systems of the body.
KDN Medix, is a Russian invention that supplies Nano particles of herbal materials that are designed to activate the adult stems cells already in the kidney and convert them into brand new, fully functional kidney cells. One case history with kidney failure reported very positive results from using KDN Medix.
There are two aspects to the circulatory system in the human body. Of the 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the body, 24% of them are the major arteries, veins and arterioles, 74% of the circulation of the body is the capillary system. Capillaries are 1/10th the diameter of a human hair. Blood cells can only go through single file. This is the area where all the oxygen and nutrients pass through the one cell layer thick capillary wall and get into the tissues. This is also where all the CO2 and cellular wastes are supposed to come into capillary, to exit in the venous system, to be routed to the lungs, liver and kidneys for excretion. This capillary system can also be called the Microcirculation. This microcirculation system is the majority of our circulation in our bodies. Under ideal conditions of health the blood will complete 30 to 50 circulations in this microcirculation system every 10 minutes. Under conditions of ill health it will slow down to as low as only one circulation every 10 minutes.
Wait a minute, if the blood is not reaching the trillions of cells in a timely manner, then that will result in CO2 and metabolic waste accumulation and nutrients not reaching the cells. Yes, this is exactly what is happening in all cases of chronic disease. Whether you are 25 or 85 this is a real phenomenon that occurs to many people. Chronic disease has a diminished microcirculation as a causative factor.
In 1998 German Scientists figured out this microcirculation subject and patented a technology to address it. This technology feeds the body a pulsed Electro Magnetic Field that exactly mimics the frequencies the body needs. They discovered that the body’s natural microcirculation system runs on a 10 to 30 hertz widow with a range of 400 to 1200 double saw toothed stimulation signals per second. That means that the relaxation point of the microcirculation blood vessel system occurs at 400 stimulation points per second and the contraction of the microcirculation system occurs at 1200 stimulation points per second. Since this is the exact frequencies the body’s microcirculation operates on, when the body is feed these exact frequencies for only 8 minutes the microcirculation is restored to a more youthful state for 12 to 16 hours. This patented technology is built in to the device called the Bemer. Bemer stands for Bio Electric Magnetic Energy Regulation.
Since kidney function has its own microcirculation system that becomes compromised when in a state of disease, what do you think might happen after 8 minutes on the Bemer paid device? That’s right the microcirculation is restored to a more youthful state. What do you think might happen to kidney function when this happens? The kidneys and all other parts of the body get to catch up on detoxification. Once all toxins are removed from the kidneys then the kidneys are able to get to work on healing themselves.
For anyone whose profession it is to help people restore their health back to an ideal state, they are going to look at this technology and see that this has been the missing piece. Now all those great herbs, vitamins, minerals from food or supplements can reach more of the cells of the body and more of the wastes can exit. When this exchange occurs in a more youthful manner, an accelerated rate of progress at regaining ideal health back is the result.
Here is a before and after video, after 8 minutes on the Bemer – see the change in microcirculation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDs7r-cXwys
What Kind of Fluids Will Most Support Kidney Health?
The type and quantity of fluid is yet another important topic to consider when it comes to helping your kidneys back to ideal health. Water is by far the most important liquid needed to hydrate, nourish and detoxify all cells of the body. Water can vary in quality, purity and ability to hydrate immensely depending upon what environment it has been in. Regular municipally treated water has chlorine, chloramine, possibly fluoride and aluminum in them and is not fit for human consumption. Bottle waters have been sitting in bottles and exposed to many unfavorable frequencies in transit and on store shelves. Water has memory so you want to drink water with only positive memory or no memory recorded into it at all.
The two technologies capable of delivering purified water with positive memory, and properly structure so that it will readily hydrate the trillions of cells of your body are Electron Water and MRET treated water.
Electron Water is a unique patented distiller technology that mimics the way nature makes purified water. In nature the Sun causes water to evaporate off the earth’s surface. As the water vapor is ascending into the heavens it is being ionized by Sunlight, thus purifying it and energizing it. The water vapor eventually forms clouds and comes down as rain. Pure snow melt water or rainwater used to be an ideal means of getting pure water that will bless every cell of your body. Due to man-made pollutants in our environment, it may not be safe to drink most rain or melted snow.
Thanks to the invention of the Electron Water Distiller you can now make the purest water possible with the same attributes as sun-kissed water. That’s right when you use the Electron Distiller, it will heat the water causing it to evaporate, then condense and evaporate over 400 times before it comes out as drops of pure water. In this process the water vapor is exposed to ionizing light in the distillation chamber. So the water is being made 100% pure of viruses and energized as well. It is claimed that the water has 3000 times more energy.
This water also to becomes a wider bond angle than any other water. Typical water has a 104-degree bond angle. Imagine the shape of a V to represent the water molecule bond angel. This V is normally only 104 degrees wide. After the 400 or so evaporations and condensations while exposed to ionizing light the entire time, the bond angle of the water goes to 114 degrees. This widening of the bond angle appears to be causing the water molecule to cause better hydration. Based upon client feed back over many years the results with improvements in health definitively show that Electron Water is vastly superior to ionized water, reverse osmosis, spring waters, filtered waters, and many other types of water. This is the only kind of water I drink when at home.
Testimony for Electron Water:
Joe Kinyon: Feels younger and has less colds or flu’s since drinking Electron 5 Water.
Audio File of Joe:
If the Electron Distiller is outside of your budget or if you want to amp up the power of the Electron Water even more, you want to consider getting the MRET water treatment device. The MRET stands for Molecular Resonance Effect Technology. It is based upon the research of Igor Smirnov, Ph.D. who designed a special crystalline polymer. When activated by an external magnetic field and oscillating light, the polymer generates subtle, piezoelectric, low frequency vibration, which are communicated to the water without physical contact. Water produced via MRET technology carries frequencies, which are very similar to the Earth’s Schuman resonance. It also carries the full spectrum of light frequencies from the Sun. This provides a harmonious blend of life-supporting vibratory information delivered through the water. The resulting water retains coherent structure for a long period of time.
Here is a microscopic picture of water crystal formation after treatment with MRET: MRET Angel Water:
The comparative picture of tumor-bearing mice on Non-activated water and on MRET
Activated water (optimal activation time 30 minutes) is presented on Pic 2.
Pic 2: The appearance of mice from “control” (A) and “preventive treatment” groups (optimal activation time 30 minutes) (В) on the 18th day after ascitic Ehrlich carcinoma cell inoculation.
The incredible health benefits of MRET water were demonstrated in the process of several microbiological investigations*: Oncology Research on 500 mice; Staphylococcal Infection Research on 400 mice; numerous experiments on the antibacterial, sterilizing effects of MRET water; the stimulating effect on the metabolic activity of complex microbiological associations similar to microbiological flora in the intestine; inhibited growth of mutated cells; enhanced morphology of red blood cells; as well as the significant rebounding effect on white blood cells during chemotherapy treatments.**
Theoretically, consuming MRET activated water could significantly enhances homeostasis, metabolism, immune response and factors such as phagocytosis, and the body’s natural resistance to bacteria, viruses and other pathogenic microorganisms.
Unique Properties and Benefits of MRET Activated Water
- Compatible with cell water
- Enhanced hydration capacities, making it easily absorbed by body’s tissues
- Penetration and extermination time nearly 3 times faster than regular water
- Improved nutrient transport and assimilation
- Waste elimination process and time accelerated and improved
- Detoxification increased from enhanced cellular hydration
- Metabolism increased
- Healthy cell regeneration time increased
- Enhanced homeostasis of the body
- Slows aging process, because aging is closely related to cell dehydration
- Improved look of skin, hair and nails
- Antibacterial, sterilizing effect: inhibits growth of bacteria, viruses and mutated cells
- Supports normal, healthy cell activity
- Immune system response enhanced

What you eat plays one of the biggest roles in your health or disease. When dealing with Chronic Kidney Disease, your body is excessively acidic. You need to consume foods that in the end will support your body’s full recovery and ability to stay more alkaline. Getting some pH paper and starting to keep track of your saliva and at times your urine pH will acquaint you with a vitally important aspect of your health. The healthiest people with the most energy and longevity maintain a saliva pH of 7 to 7.4. Eating a more plant-based diet will serve you in achieving a more alkaline pH. Eating easy to digest proteins like One World Whey and taking supplemental Amino Acids in the Form of All Basic or All Basic Plus. Supplementing with One World Whey and free form amino acids will reduce your dietary protein needs immensely and accelerate the rate at which your kidneys can return to ideal health.
Including raw milk from grass fed cows or goats may be another excellent addition to your health recovery program. There is a very powerful immune support yogurt that you can make in your home that will only support your kidneys healing. Bravo Probiotic was developed by Dr. Marco Ruggerio MD from Italy. When you inoculate your grass fed sterilized milk, with Bravo Probiotic and culture it for 48 hours, you will produce a delicious tasting yogurt with up to 3 grams of naturally occurring GcMAF per liter. GcMAF is a powerful immune system promoting protein sugar.
When the body is in a healthy state, it produces enough of this GcMAF to keep it free of viruses and tumors. When viruses or tumors weaken the body, there is an enzyme called nagalase produced by these viruses and tumors. Nagalase stops the body’s production of this essential immune protein-sugar called GcMAF. Buy consuming a GcMAF rich yogurt you can help to resurrect your immune system so that health can return to all parts of your body.

I do not yet know if Dr. Marco Ruggerio’s diet recommendations of meat and vegetables are the best diet personally. However I recommend that when you do prepare meats for consumption that you cooked them via steam or boiling. Dry heat cooking causing the creation of toxic Advanced Glycation End-products AGE’s. AGE’s are toxic to the body and deposit into tissues, thus damaging the kidneys or whatever part of the body you are concerned about improving. Personally I am consuming mostly a plant-based diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and their juices and only small amounts of flesh foods cooked in water only, when I crave them, which is about 3 days per week.
How to make Bravo:
To watch instructional video on how to make the Bravo Yogurt click on the image below:
It is recommended to have the Bravo probiotic yoghurt after a main meal of protein and leafy greens. It is recommended to take the Bravo Probiotic Yoghurt for a minimum of 3 months, but may be best to consume for 8 to 12 months depending upon your current state of health. Holding a spoonful in the mouth for 90 seconds may help to get some of the beneficial properties absorbed through the mouth. If you do this, then do not rinse the mouth with anything for 30 minutes after doing this.
Autistic children start at 1ml/day, increasing by 1ml/day according to symptoms. Most reach 20ml/day but some may even get as high as 50 ml/day. We suggest using a syringe.
Adults with gut issues or chronic health issues such as cancer or chronic fatigue start at 5 ml per day increasing by 5ml per day up to 100ml per day.
If you are using 2 oz. 2x per day or 100ml total per day, then this will last you for 20 2oz servings. I personally make ½ gallon at a time and consume 1 to 2 cups per day. It only makes me feel good and my intestines work great.
Kidney Improvement Testimonies; Synergy One is the new name for Chrysalis
“I suffered from the shock of kidney failure, which left me hospitalized for some eight months. Through the entire experience I had to go through the horrible ordeal of dialysis. When I finally was released from the hospital I still had to go to dialysis three times a week and it was scheduled for the rest of my life.
I started to take Chrysalis from Synergistic Nutrition to see if it would restore my energy because the dialysis treatments really left me drained. The spray not only restored my energy level as I had hoped but to my glorious surprise the Chrysalis returned to me my kidney function to where my medical doctor told me that I didn’t need dialysis treatments anymore and that it is truly rare that my kidneys are working again.
At my request Stephen Heuer of Synergistic Nutrition supplied me with an excellent diet plan that included Quantum quality supplements designed to ensure that I would never have to return to that dreaded “treatment machine” again.
It’s been three years now and my test results are still strong.
Thanks Synergistic Nutrition, L. A. Rogers
Louis Rogers Audio Testimony Here:
Dear Synergistic Nutrition,
I have used Kidney Well for five years and credit it with helping me keep my Creatinine level in the normal range. Five years ago I lost my left kidney to cancer. That’s when I started taking Kidney Well and it kept me and my one kidney in fine health. In October 2009, I was surprised to find out that cancer had formed on my one remaining kidney. Fortunately, it was operable, but I was told the functionality of the 80% of my onekidney ranged from barely hopeful to no chance at all because it had been seriously damaged by diabetes. My Nephrologist (kidney specialist) is no fan of supplements, but my belief in Kidney Well had me back on track as soon as I was out of the hospital. Although at that time I was suffering from full Renal failure (creatinine was at 7.2) I was immediately placed on dialysis. Three months later, to the disbelief of many doctors, I was released from dialysis. I am convinced that Kidney Well was the major contributor to my good renal health.
Thank you, very, very much, Al Vignato
This is a transcript of an audio testimony below:
Stephen: Valentine’s Day 2005 so that’s February 14th 2005 and I’m in the office with Anita Tausere who is a client who came into my office three or so years ago with kidney failure or at least close to kidney failure and she’s returning and going to give us a recording of her experience of trying some products and how they helped her with that problem…
A million thanks to Cocoon Nutrition today that I have my life back. It’s Valentine’s Day today and I haven’t received any gift or any balloons from my husband this morning and I was thinking on my way to Cocoon that it doesn’t matter because three years ago he found Cocoon Nutrition for me when the doctor had put me on life time pills for my kidney because I am a diabetic and my kidney was totally damaged and I was on my way to dialyses and at 37 years of age I don’t think I would want to go there at all. I have a six year old son and I’m totally, totally so very thankful for Stephen’s life and Cocoon Nutrition that totally healed me. I purchased a bottle of Kidney Well and on my second to third day the pain totally left me. My kidney was spilling a lot of protein in my [urine] and I went back for a test after a week to the doctor and the doctor told me there is no spillage of protein totally…
Anita: …not at all and I was very shocked. So, wherever Stephen moves I am moving. I’m following him. And yeah Cocoon Nutrition has the best stuff and here today I almost purchased about $200 worth of stuff. Hey it’s your life. So, we go out there and by this dress and all these shoes and for nothing when you don’t even have your health, when you don’t have your life, there’s no point. So, I thank you Stephen and Cocoon. Anita
Anita’s Audio Testimony here:
Thank God for directing us to Stephen Heuer, Nutripath and Dr. Barry Chantrelle, renal specialist who was the only open minded doctor to support Stephen’s nutritional program. Together with conventional and un-conventional expertise, myself, Albert Gilbert, who is a recovered Kidney Dialysis patient, received a call from Dr. Chantrelle stating that with 2 more visits he wouldn’t need to see me anymore. My kidneys are fully functioning. I would advise anyone who is in a crisis situation with their health in any capacity to just try this vitamin therapy, work with your doctor also, it will be one of the best things you could have done for your self or loved one. P.S. I’m 65, I am a living testimony, it works, and the doctor said I would be on dialysis forever. I am now Free to Live. What if it works for you? Albert Gilbert
