Alternative Cure for Kidney Disease
Age and physical condition place some persons at higher risk than others, no matter what type of bacteria is implicated. Infants and young children, pregnant women, and older adults are at greatest risk for foodborne illness, as are all people with weakened immune systems caused by cancer treatment, AIDS, diabetes, kidney disease, and organ transplants. Some persons may become ill after ingesting only a few harmful bacteria others may remain symptom free after ingesting thousands.
Africa with mainly anti-dysenteric properties (Watt and Breyer-Brandwijk, 1962), e.g. root of P. transvaalense and P. triste and the leaves of P. bowkeri and P. sidaefolium. Some Pelargonium species were also used to treat specific maladies, e.g. P. cucullatum for nephritis P. tragacanthoides for neuralgia, P. luridum and P. transvaalense root for fever P. minimum, P. reniform and P. grossularioides for menstrual flow (Pappe 1868 Watt and Breyer-Brandwijk, 1962). The latter was also used as an emmenagogue and abortifacient by both Zulus and Boers and has recently been studied further (Lis-Balchin and Hart, 1994) and shown to have spasmogenic properties on the uterus and smooth muscle preparations in vitro. Pelargonium reniforme and P. sidoides extracts are currently used in the herbal remedy Umckaloabo (produced in Germany) for respiratory ailments, owing to its strong antimicrobial properties it also has immunomodulatory properties, leishmanicidal activity and interferon-like...
At the top of the no-no list are the diuretic medications, which work by preventing your kidneys from doing one of their most important jobs reabsorbing the minerals your body needs. Blocking the kidneys' ability to reabsorb sodium and chloride takes salt out of the body and lowers blood pressure by lowering the fluids that stay in the body. But those blocked kidneys also lose their ability to retain valuable minerals not only potassium, but magnesium, calcium, chromium, zinc and many others. Prescription diuretics induce mineral deficiencies that can cause many problems. Numerous studies demonstrate that diuretics aggravate diabetes, elevate blood sugar and increase insulin levels, triglycerides and body mass index (the measure for obesity). For all these reasons, I insist that my patients on diuretics discontinue them and replace them with L-taurine, the natural amino acid that is a powerful diuretic but has no ill effects on kidney function.
The advice offered in this book, although based on the author's experience with many thousands of patients, is not intended to be a substitute for the advice and counsel of your personal physician. If you are currently taking diuretics, insulin or oral diabetes medications, consult your physician before starting Atkins. You will need to reduce and then closely monitor your dosage as you lower your blood-sugar level. People with severe kidney disease should not do Atkins. The weight loss phases of the Atkins Nutritional Approach are not appropriate for pregnant women and nursing mothers.
I fear that many of you think of diabetes as a rather innocuous condition that requires very little self-denial. Oh, well, you may say, if my blood sugar is out of control, I can take a pill to control it. Or if you are further along the path to diabetes, you might even say, I'll just have to take insulin and watch the way I eat. Don't flirt with that radically incorrect viewpoint. Diabetes can be an innocuous condition all right, but only if you eat appropriately. If you don't, diabetes can be a heartbreaking scourge. It's the largest single cause of new cases of blindness in the United States. It's also the leading cause of kidney failure, a giant stepping-stone toward heart disease, and can so severely damage the circulatory system that eighty-six thousand Americans yearly suffer amputations.' I won't catalogue any more horrors. Instead, heed my many years of clinical experience If you are at risk for diabetes, you have to make a lifetime pledge to stay away from those foods known...
The second most important nutrient for individuals with blood-sugarfinsulin imbalances is vanadium. Most research, done with vanadyl sulfate, has shown benefits in combating both insulin resistance and lack of insulin. A typical dose range of vanadyl sulfate is 30 to 60 mg daily. Vanadyl is one of the very few nutrients that may place stress on the kidneys, so I always recommend that kidney function be monitored when using it.
And, just in case you actually did the unthinkable and skipped the beginning of the book to get to this chapter, let me repeat one important health warning None of the weight loss phases of Atkins is appropriate for pregnant women or nursing mothers, and people with severe kidney disease should not do Atkins at all.
You are probably raring to start Atkins and begin losing weight. But there are two medically important steps and several practical preparations that will lay the groundwork for your success. First, a crucial warning People with severe kidney disease (creatinine over 2.4) should not do any phase of Atkins unless ordered to do so by their physician. Also, pregnant women and nursing mothers may do the Lifetime Maintenance phase but should not do any of the weight loss phases of Atkins.
