HOW and WHY?
While working with your nephrologists, we focus on eliminating the root causes that caused your kidney damage in the first place. We do this by utilizing nutrition, detoxification, fitness, and powerful natural therapies to heal the kidney. This helps prevent the need of dialysis.
Who needs dialysis?
Dialysis is meant to supplement your body’s detoxing function. When eGFR is under 15% (your kidney can only filter and clean 15% of your blood at this point), you have an excess amount of toxin, such as Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinine, accumulating in your blood stream, cells, and brain, which poison your whole body, making you feel horrible.
This season in life that should be enjoyed will be cut short dramatically, as you will have to go to the hospital three times a week up to 4 hours each time for dialysis.
Let’s prevent kidney dialysis before it is too late! You should be very concerned if your kidney function, eGFR, is below 60%. (as you can see, once the function is below 15%, the chance of reversing the disease is very thin):
Step 1. Understanding the Kidney Function:
Your kidneys not only remove toxins, but also balance PH value, produce vitamin D, as well as hormones that control blood pressure and produce red blood cells.
You have to address the causes of the problem to make it better. Besides stress, some medications and chemicals contribute to kidney function decline as well, the following table highlights the 5 main causes of kidney failure:
Step 2. Understanding the causes of kidney disease:
Medications controlling diabetes and high blood pressure are usually effective at treating those diseases, but less effective at slowing down the progression of kidney diseases. Dialysis only helps remove trash downstream, while a kidney transplant will provide you with a new kidney. If the initial insult which killed your own kidneys is still there, the new kidney will be damaged quickly.
Step 3. Understanding that Conventional treatment is amazing:
