.11/26/09) I often tell my nine doctors that I will give them all up
before I give up my Acupuncturist, Steve Phillips, and my Bowen
Therapist, Christine Jones. I have been seeing Steve for about three
years and Christine for over ten years. I had open heart surgery last
July 12th, 2006 and was able to endure the post-operative chest pain
because of Steve's expert care. I have had over 19 surgeries in my life
span of 66. Being a high maintenance client, I usually look like a pin
cushion while Steve is working on all my dysfunctional body parts.
Acupuncture has significantly improved my sciatic pain and neck pain. I
come out of treatment feeling like a new person and have a big smile on
my face. I have recommended Steve to anyone who tells me about their
aches and pains. I am so relaxed that I even fall asleep during
treatment. Trust me, if your fear of needles has kept you from seeking
treatment, don't hesitate another day and call Steve. Be kind to
yourself. Steve will help you with all your insurance questions and get
you on the road to feeling better. ___ I have been on dialysis for
three years waiting for a kidney transplant. I have dialysis three
times per week. After two months of acupuncture the length of my
dialysis sessions were reduced from three hours to two. Also, my KT/V
has gone way up, which means my kidneys are doing a better job of
cleaning my blood of toxins. My memory has also improved. My faith has
kept me strong and Steve Phillips has enabled me to look at each day as
a blessing. My husband, Jim, recently became a patient of Steve's for
his serious neck problems and has obtained significant relief from
pain. In the July-August issue of ARTHRITIS TODAY the article says that
acupuncture "helps regulate the nervous system which can stimulate the
release of the body's natural pain-fighting endorphins." Being treated
by Steve on a regular basis has enabled me to stay positive and endure
whatever life throws my way. Sandi K.

------------- .2/3/09) There are herbal cleanses that Dr. Schulze said can heal kidney failure. You wouldn't expect a car to keep running well if you don't change the oil, oil filter, air filter etc occasionally. Our bodies need cleaning out too, if we let too much junk accumulate. The colon, liver, kidneys need to be cleaned out. Former smokers need to rest and eat and drink well to clean out their lungs too.

-------------- Ira's remaining kidney repaired itself after kidney failure. Here's Ira's story. ___ They said I'd be dead, but here I be! In January/Feb of this year I regretfully lost a kidney to cancer. The tumor is down near my bladder blocking the ureters. One died and the other is currectly nephrostimised. Anyway, while I was there I was highly toxic. I had to have several dialasis treatments and coughed up a huge container of toxic waste that my lungs had been storing when my kidney failed. My heart was weak, I was faiting all over the place, my blood count was like 4. The doctors all told my family I would be dead in days, weeks at best. ___ __Here it is nearing the end of September and I'm still here. I hope to come back and tell you the same in another 9 months. :) ___ __I'm doing Budwig (flax seed oil in cottage cheese), essiac, occasional ozone and juicing. But I gotta tell you, it's WILL that really gives a person success in this battle. I have God on my side for strength when my will faulters and couldn't even think of a better friend to strengthen me. I wish all of you the best of outcomes in your battle against this disease, and encourage you to find God and strengthen your will to fight! :) ___ Strength_by_God ___ __Come join our forum. ___ http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/oleandersoup ___ Hugs, Luella ___ __Beautiful message! In the very beginning of this battle I asked God for strength and He did provide it. I don't know what sort of abyss I'd be staring down if I didn't think He had all under control, whether I live or die. ___ I do want to live though and am doing everything I know, it has to be natural of course. Budwig is one of my favorite things to do as I find it so tasty and simple. I also want to go on a dry fast (no food no water). In Russia its gaining popularity very quickly as it speeds up the ketosis up to 3 times comparing to a simple water fast, also microorganisms and parasites apparently don't fare well without water. That's a big yay. I hope you keep posting on your progress/journey, would love to see more messages by you. ___ Ira ___ http://tinyurl.com/24vsy3 ___ __What has helped my kidney by Strength_by_God6 ___ In my blog here at Curezone I talk about my experience with kidney failure. I was given a nephrostomy, a tube running through my back directly into my kidney so urine can drain into a bag. Back then they told me the functioning kidney (the other was a shell) was badly damaged and only partially functioning and that even with the nephrostomy eventually it's condition would deteriorate and I'd check out. Well I just went in for my third nephrostomy change and the doctor exclaimed that my kidney looked "beautiful." No sign of damage at all. The only real change I'd made was that I'd been eating 3 tablespoons of flax seed oil in cottage cheese & yogurt every day for a month and a half (before the proceedure). I also juiced and drank essiac. I have been told that kidneys love flax seed oil and this must be true so I'm here hoping to help anyone who reads this. Try it, it may help you too. ___ __Do you think it would be good to do the flax oil and cottage cheese to maintain the good kidney? I did a bottle of mh kidney cleanse this year. yelrah ___ __Absolutely. I don't plan to stop using it at all. I've already seen the effects it's had on my kidney, why tamper with a good thing. I hope it helps you too. by Strength_by_God ___ __Mushroom extract improves kidney failure by 123go http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=965159 ___ Studies have shown that an amino acid extract of white button mushrooms (agaricus bisporus) called Champex improves kidney and liver function in kidney failure patients. It works in part by removing ammonia from the blood and lowering uric acid levels and improving symptoms of gout. It removes other toxins from the body as well. ___ __http://www.sterlingorganics.com sells a product called Quantum Kidney Complex which contains the Champex extract and some other kidney friendly herbs. ___ __Much info can be read at http://www.directfood.net/champex about the studies. ___ __Look into the healing properties of foods and then buy or grow the best of the best. Whole raw green juices will help a great deal and allow your body to work and use its energies on getting well instead of digesting. Kale, dandelion, carrot etc... take it slow at first. grzbear ___ __Start on coffee enemas immediately, best to get coffee from http://www.sawilsons.com but don't wait get the best organic stuff you can find now. Enema bags can be purchased at medical supply stores and distilled water just about anywhere if you need further help then go to http://curezone.com/forums/f.asp?f=100128 ___ __Also the full Becks Protocol will take the toxin load off more info at: http://curezone.com/forums/f.asp?f=47 newport ___ __Drink gallons of freshly ozonated water and take enemas. Some of that nascent oxygen will reach the kidneys and promote healing. Eat lots of fresh raw fruits and vegetables in between the ozonated water, and ask yourself how you got this far down. ozoneman ___ __I know that many people think ozone has powerful effects on cancer, but we have never seen it used as a solo therapy in a complex case like yours. The primary way I have seen it used is in conjunction with diet, herbal treatment, cleasning and other natural therapies. In those cases it was administered along with full colonics (in the water) from a nurse who specializes in colonics. I have seen significant pain lessened substantially with ozone used with other therapies, but not specifically kidney pain. marysfo ___ __although I am not sure I bet if you email this man he will know as he worked with oozone generators many years and is a genius (he can be testy at times if he's having a bad day warning) Tom Harrelson http://healingtools.tripod.com/linksa.html ___ __Also urine therapy has had success with kidney disease also found out cordyceps and ascarigus (spelling?) mushrooms are very good for kidney disease - knowledge seeker ___ __The remedy's name that has ALWAYS helped not only me but also my mom (she's got kidney problems too), my grandma, and many other people I know who suffer kidney problems is Phytolyzin. It works as a charm; IT REALLY DOES. Hope it'll help you as well. It is made in Poland. Here are a couple of links on it: http://www.homeapteka.com/productinfo.asp?productid=6445 ___ http://www.pharmacy1010.com/product_page.asp?id=517 ___ __You can order from the second link. Apparently they deliver to the US and pretty much anywhere else. Unfortunately I can't find any detailed info in English on ingridients. I'll translate some of them : Oil of orange, sage oil, mint oil, pine tree oil, parsley root, birch leaf, and seven other ingridients that I am not able to translate. Phytolizin is a paste which you take by 1 tea spoon 3-4 times a day in a warm water. If you really interested I can spend more time and translate the whole thing for you. Also, if you live in the US, I could probably find it here for you. That way you won't have to wait till you get the shipment from Poland. ___ __Another thing I would strongly recommend is a Colon Cleanse . Niether Hulda Clark 's zapper, nor Beck's blood electrifier will eleminate parasites in the colon. The only ways to get rid of parasites in colon is by taking herbs. Two ways of cleaning the colon are enemas and herbs. colonics seem to be very helpful; I've never tried them, however. What I have tried and know works for sure are enemas. Urine enemas in particular. Ayurvedic protocol. http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=123720 - http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=807793#i
------- Treatments and Choices http://www.outcomes-trust.org/monitor/sum99mon.htm ___ __Dialysis and transplantation have prolonged the life expectancy of all patients with advanced renal failure, and made the timing of the fatal prognosis less predictable. For example, over half of the best-matched kidney transplants are still working after twenty-five years; patient survival is even longer for those patients. Dialysis patient survival can also exceed two decades for some individuals. But for the ESRD population as a whole, average life expectancy from the time of onset of renal failure is only 4 to 5 years. For most patients renal failure remains a terminal illness. ___ __urine therapy has stopped my kidney leakage by ei1321 ___ http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1016841 google urine therapy (143,000 web pages).

(sugar absorption causing increased cell-to-cell communication), even though they have benefit in many health conditions. ___ __I have shown previously that research has shown that the majority of these substances are converted by microorganisms into short-chain fatty acids, such as butyrate (which is NOT a sugar). This is one of the ways these substances have their effects. Butyrate is the primary energy source for the colon, and is potently anti-inflammatory, and has been shown to actually convert colon cancer cells (and other cancer cells) into normal cells, as well as have many other beneficial effects. Variations of butyric acid are being studied for use in cancer and other conditions. ___ __Recently, a group wondered if soluble fiber in the diet would affect renal (kidney) disease by increasing circulating amounts of butyrate. So they gave Gum Arabic (sound familiar, it is also known as Gum Acacia, and is really cheap) to human volunteers for 8 weeks. At the end of 8 weeks they found the levels of circulating butyrate to have doubled. In vitro, they found butyrate had beneficial effects on generation of certain cytokines which affect the kidney in renal diseases. Showing a mechanism of how glyconutrients can affect renal disease without the glyconutrients ever getting to the kidneys themselves. ___ __Matsumoto N, Riley S, Fraser D, Al-Assaf S, Ishimura E, Wolever T, Phillips GO, Phillips AO.

Olynyk http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=67224 ___ __A Success Story Using Traditional Chinese Medicine __The owner of the clinic, Dr Ching-Chuan Yeh, is a Taiwan-trained practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine. He has also worked closely with western doctors, including pediatricians at Montreal's St Justine's Hospital for Children. Dr Yeh listened to my husband's story. Then he measured the pulse in both of Marcello's wrists. He looked at his tongue, his eyes and skin. Within minutes Dr Yeh declared that Marcello had no cancer but said that he had damaged his kidney and needed treatment. ___ __The "growth" revealed by the CAT scan was probably a clot of blood that the kidney had immediately produced in order to protect the injured area. ___ __Kidneys--Energy Regulator ___ __According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, the kidneys regulate the storage of nutrition in the body and the use of energy. Marcello's treatment would thus be two-pronged: the first step would be to flush the "growth" out of his kidney and detoxify this vital organ; the second, to build up the kidney and the entire body. Dr Yeh prescribed a two-week regimen of herbal treatments. ___ __Every evening I boiled a bag of herbs containing a combination of at least 14 different herbs, including licorice root (Radix glycyrrhizae), myrrha and Chinese angelica (Radix angelicae sinensis). The herbs were boiled in eight cups of water until reduced to three and then divided into three one-cup doses for the next day, one dose to be taken after every meal. Dr Yeh also prescribed herbal pills and a diet to include more eggs and other energy-rich foods once a week. For even though my husband was eating well (all fresh foods, nothing processed, packaged or frozen), his energy output was not being adequately fueled. Every two weeks he would return for a checkup and another two-week batch of herbs and pills. As Marcello's condition improved, Dr Yeh would adjust the prescription of the herbal formula. ___ __For 10 months my husband drank the admittedly terrible-tasting herbal tonics that I boiled every evening. Almost immediately he began to feel powerful surges of energy coursing through his body. Many times he told me that he could sense the action of the herbs working in him. During this time he endured two more CAT scans and a second painful cystoscopy. Between the first and second scans several months passed, yet there was no telltale sign of cancer growth. Even the urologist was forced to admit that surgery might be premature. ___ __Finally, in spring 1999, the radiologist who performed the third CAT scan and compared these results with the results of the first two scans declared that there was no cancer now--or ever. The "growth" in the right kidney may have been an old injury sustained during Marcello's soccer-playing days in Belgium, which years later was aggravated by overexertion. Thus, after more than one year marked by grief, anxiety and worry, western specialists finally confirmed Dr Yeh's original--and correct--diagnosis. Had we not consulted him, Marcello would today be missing a kidney, and a healthy one at that.
-------------- No dialysis and stopping dialysis http://renux.dmed.ed.ac.uk/EdREN/EdRenINFObits/NoRRTshort.html from EdREN, the website of the Renal Unit of the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh ___ __If your kidneys have almost completely failed, you can decide not to have dialysis. This page is a short summary of why some people choose to do this. Longer and more detailed information is also available. ___ __Isn't dialysis a lifesaving treatment? Dialysis is lifesaving for fit and healthy people who have kidney disease, but it is not an easy treatment. Here are some problems that can occur: ___ * Dialysis often requires long treatments in a diaysis unit, where machines are used to treat your blood. Typically this is for at least 4 hours, 3 times each week ___ * The treatment itself can be difficult for some people to cope with, mentally and physically ___ * Complications of dialysis can be serious and even fatal ___ * There is a strong chance that some people will spend a lot of time in hospital getting started on dialysis, and with complications of the treatment or of other illnesses. ___ __Who might find dialysis difficult? Those who find dialysis particularly difficult usually have other serious illnesses as well as kidney disease. Here are some conditions that can cause serious problems: ___ o Serious heart or lung disease ___ o Severe narrowing of arteries to the legs ___ o Advanced cancer ___ o Dementia ___ __Very old people are more likely to find dialysis difficult, but this is often because they have other illnesses. If you have been physically active with good health (apart from kidney disease), old age is not such a problem. ___ __How long could I expect to live if I had dialysis? Everyone is different and you will need to ask your doctors about this. People at highest risk (e.g. elderly with one or more of the illnesses listed above) may have only a 50:50 chance of living longer than one year, even with dialysis treatment. ___ __Sometimes it is obvious that dialysis is not going to prolong life much, only make the remainder of a patient's life more difficult and unpleasant. ___ __Sometimes 'no dialysis' can give a better quality of life, with less involvement of hospitals, and you may live just as long, or nearly as long. ___ __How can I stay well without dialysis? Here are some things that can help: ___ * Good diet - advice from a renal diet specialist is very important. ___ * Anaemia treatment - special treatments to control anaemia can be very helpful ___ * Fluid management - medicines called diuretics ('water tablets') and being careful what you eat and drink can prevent fluid from building up and causing breathlessness ___ * Blood pressure - controlling blood pressure can prevent kidney function from getting worse ___ * Other treatments - many treatments can help with the symptoms of kidney failure, or of other diseases that you may have. ___ __ Your renal unit may provide all of these, or they may get help from other units or specialists. ___ __What is it like to die with renal failure? Dying with renal failure is usually peaceful and it is not painful. Most people who make the decision not to have dialysis have other diseases. It is very common that, after making the decision not to have dialysis, people die from another illness before dialysis would have been necessary. ___ __ I don't think I want dialysis. What should I do? You must talk to your doctors about it. It is important that you find out what your own prospects really are. You should usually also mention it to your family and close friends. ___ __How long can I expect to live if I have dialysis? There is a lot of information that can help here, but no way of telling exactly what will happen to any one person. Our own figures are not very different from other similar centres, but they can only give a very rough estimate that must be combined with your own doctors' opinions. ___ Survival on dialysis ___ LOW RISK PATIENTS ___ Under 70 years old with no other illnesses 90-95% are alive after 2 years of treatment (more if younger) ___ MEDIUM RISK PATIENTS ___ 70-80 years old, or under 70 years old with one other serious illness* 2 out of 3 are alive after 2 years of treatment ___ HIGH RISK PATIENTS ___ Over 80 years old, or any age with two serious illnesses* 1 in 3 are alive after 2 years of treatment ___ http://renux.dmed.ed.ac.uk/EdREN/EdRenINFObits/NoRRTshort.html ___ __Kidneys are one of the most vital organs of the body, and damage to them must be prevented by all means. Survival is threatened when kidneys are badly damaged in a disease, and their function impaired severely. Hence, the infection must be controlled/ eradicated immediately with proper antibiotics, otherwise the kidneys will be damaged as a result of a long-standing/ recurrent infection, called chronic pyelonephritis. ___ __The situation becomes grim when an attack of acute pyelonephritis/cystitis subsides in about 1-2 weeks, even without treatment. This happens in cases especially where there is no obstructive lesion in the urinary tract. Although the patient feels no symptoms, the infection persists and damages the kidneys in a slow gradual manner. This asymptomatic infection of the kidneys (although the patient goes on passing bacteria/pus cells or albumin in urine), is most dangerous, as ultimately the kidneys may fail silently, and the patient begins to feel helpless, unexpectedly. Such is the treacherous nature of infection of the urinary tract. ___ __As a result of chronic infection, the size of the kidneys goes on reducing. It becomes small, scarred and contracted, with hardly any function it can perform; it fails markedly / completely - this is called renal/kidney failure. ___ __A patient of UTI - (Urinary Tract Infection) should never feel that since he has no symptoms, he needs no test or antibiotics. Hence one should realize the value of mass awareness with regard to UTI. It has been aptly said that 'what the mind does not know, the eyes cannot see, and, therefore, chronic UTI can be arrested/ controlled soon enough, if there's general awareness in this regard. ___ __Detection of occult / hidden cases of UTI ___ __If a survey is conducted regarding the detection of occult/ hidden cases of UTI, one will find a substantial number of cases that have no symptoms of any kind related to cystitis/ pyelonephritis. Hence, a periodic examination of urine for albumin, as well as a microscopic examination of the urine collected properly for pus cells is the most useful test for the detection of such cases. A frequent examination of urine is an essential requirement in cases which are more prone to this trouble. All such symptomless cases of UTI must be treated with suitable antibiotics so that infection in the urinary tract is eradicated and the kidneys are saved from damage. ___ __What should be done for UTI? Under these circumstances, the only way to safeguard against kidney infection/UTI is to strictly follow the preventive guidelines, and one should be aware of the various clinical signs and symptoms of both cystitis as well as pyelonephritis, so that the patient can report to the physician/ specialist concerned at the earliest, for investigations, treatment/eradication of infection from the urinary tract, before the disease subsides on its own, or recurs, causing irreparable damage to the kidneys. Treatment should be taken under a specialist's guidance, and even the maintenance dose of antibiotics for the urinary tract may be required for a long time/even for years in some cases, so as to keep the kidneys free from infective organisms. Treatment should commence at the earliest possible moment. A case of cystitis should not allow pyelonephritis to develop, and cystitis should be treated energetically, so that the infection does not flare and damage the kidneys.

--------------- Kidney failure, chronic Introduction http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/kidney-failure/DS00682 ___ Signs and symptoms http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/kidney-failure/DS00682/DSECTION=2 ___ Signs and symptoms ___ * High blood pressure ___ * Unexplained weight loss ___ * Anemia ___ * Nausea or vomiting ___ * A general sense of discomfort and unease (malaise) ___ * Fatigue ___ * Headaches that seem unrelated to any other cause ___ * Decreased mental sharpness ___ * Muscle twitches and cramps ___ * Bloody or tarry stools, which could indicate bleeding in your intestinal tract ___ * Yellowish-brown cast to your skin ___ * Persistent itching ___ __Causes http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/kidney-failure/DS00682/DSECTION=3 ___ __Although this filtration system is usually able to clear all the waste products your body produces, problems can occur if blood flow to your kidneys is disrupted, if the tubules or glomeruli become damaged or diseased, or if urine outflow is obstructed. ___ Progressive kidney damage most often results from a chronic illness over a period of years. Common causes include: ___ * Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a leading cause of chronic kidney failure in the United States. Chronic kidney failure is related to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. ___ * High blood pressure (hypertension). Untreated or inadequately treated high blood pressure is another common cause of chronic kidney failure in the United States. The added force of elevated blood pressure exerted on the glomeruli can cause damage and scarring. When this happens, the nephrons containing the damaged glomeruli eventually lose their ability to filter waste from your blood. ___ * Obstructive nephropathy. This occurs when urine outflow is blocked over time by an enlarged prostate, kidney stones or tumors, or by vesicoureteral reflux, a condition that results from urine backing up into your kidneys from your bladder. The backflow pressure in your kidneys reduces their function. ___ * Kidney diseases. These include clusters of cysts in the kidneys (polycystic kidney disease), kidney infection (pyelonephritis) and inflammation of the glomeruli (glomerulonephritis), a condition that causes your kidneys to leak protein into your urine and damages nephrons. ___ * Kidney (renal) artery stenosis. This is a narrowing or blockage of the kidney artery before it enters your kidney. In older adults, blockages often result when fatty deposits accumulate under the lining of the artery walls (atherosclerosis). Kidney artery stenosis can also affect young women in the form of a condition known as fibromuscular dysplasia, which causes the walls of the arteries to become thicker. Both conditions are often associated with high blood pressure. ___ * Toxins. Ongoing exposure to fuels and solvents, such as carbon tetrachloride, and lead — in lead-based paint, lead pipes, soldering materials, jewelry and even alcohol distilled in old car radiators — can lead to chronic kidney failure. ___ __Risk Factors ___ * Diabetes is the single greatest risk factor ___ * High blood pressure (hypertension) ___ * Atherosclerosis ___ * Chronic glomerulonephritis ___ * Congenital kidney disease ___ * Kidney disease present at birth (congenital) ___ * Bladder outlet obstruction ___ * Overexposure to toxins and to some medications ___ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/high-blood-pressure/DS00100/DSECTION=3 ___ - In 90 percent to 95 percent of high blood pressure cases, the American Heart Association says there's no identifiable cause. This type of high blood pressure, called essential hypertension or primary hypertension, tends to develop gradually over many years. ___ --->>>[The cause is probably high carb toxic diet, which produces low thyroid levels, high insulin levels & other damage to organs] ___ - The other 5 percent to 10 percent of high blood pressure cases are caused by an underlying condition. This type of high blood pressure, called secondary hypertension, tends to appear suddenly and cause higher blood pressure than does primary hypertension. Various conditions can lead to secondary hypertension, including kidney abnormalities, tumors of the adrenal gland or ___ --->>>certain congenital heart defects. [like rheumatic fever?] ___ - Certain medications — including birth control pills, cold remedies, --->>>decongestants, over-the-counter pain relievers and some prescription drugs — also may cause secondary hypertension. ___ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/high-blood-pressure/DS00100/DSECTION=4 ___ - Excess weight. The greater your body mass, the more blood you need to supply oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. As the volume of blood circulated through your blood vessels increases, so does the pressure on your artery walls. ___ --->>> Tobacco use. The chemicals in tobacco can damage the lining of your artery walls, which promotes narrowing of the arteries. ___ - In a 2006 study, adults who worked more than 40 or 50 hours a week — particularly clerical and unskilled workers — were more likely to have high blood pressure than were those who worked 40 hours or less a week. Researchers tied the higher risk for workers with longer hours to ___ --->>>unhealthy eating, less exercise, more stress and less sleep. ___ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/high-blood-pressure/HQ01345 ___ Secondary high blood pressure: When another condition causes hypertension ___ Various conditions can cause secondary high blood pressure. Treating these underlying conditions can control — or cure — your high blood pressure. ___ --->>>Hypothyroidism ___ This condition occurs when the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone, which can cause high blood pressure. Hypothyroidism may have various causes, including inflammation, surgery, radiation treatment, certain medications or pituitary problems. ___ --->>>[The main cause is high carb toxic diet] ___ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/edema/DS01035/DSECTION=3 ___ - Edema occurs when tiny blood vessels in your body (capillaries) leak fluid. This leakage can result from damage to or increased pressure in the capillaries. When your body senses the capillaries are leaking, your kidneys begin to retain more sodium and water than normal to compensate for the lost fluid from your blood vessels. This increases the amount of fluid circulating through your body, which causes the capillaries to leak more. The fluid from the capillaries leaks into the surrounding tissue, causing the tissue to swell. ___ - Congestive heart failure. When one or both of your heart's lower chambers loses its ability to pump blood effectively — as happens in congestive heart failure — the blood can back up in your legs, ankles and feet, causing edema. ___ --->>> Kidney disease. When you have kidney disease, your kidneys may not be able to eliminate enough fluid and sodium from your blood. The extra fluid and sodium increases pressure in your blood vessels, causing edema. ___ [So the edema may have been due to kidney problems] ___ --->>>Edema associated with kidney disease usually occurs in your legs and around your eyes. ___ - # Kidney damage. Damage to the tiny blood vessels in your kidneys (glomeruli) that filter waste and excess water from your blood can result in nephrotic syndrome. One result of nephrotic syndrome is low levels of protein (albumin) in your blood, which can lead to fluid accumulation and edema. ___ - # Weakness or damage to veins in your legs. Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition in which the veins in your legs are weakened or damaged and can't pump enough blood back to your heart. The remaining blood increases pressure in the veins, causing swelling. ___ - # Inadequate lymphatic system. Your body's lymphatic system helps clear excess fluid from tissues. If this system is damaged — either due to lymphedema that occurs on its own (primary lymphedema) or because of a disease or medical condition, such as cancer or an infection (secondary lymphedema) — the lymph nodes and lymph vessels draining an area may not work correctly and edema results. ___ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/gout/DS00090/DSECTION=3 ___ - Gout occurs when urate crystals accumulate around your joint, causing the inflammation and intense pain of a gout attack. Urate crystals can form when you have high levels of uric acid in your blood. Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines, substances that are found naturally in your body, as well as in certain foods, such as organ meats, anchovies, herring, asparagus and mu ___ ooms. ___ - Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes your body either produces too much uric acid ___ --->>>or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid can build up, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation and swelling. ___ [So the gout may have been due to kidney problems] ___ http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/k/kidney_disease/intro.htm ___ http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hypoparathyroidism/DS00952/DSECTION=4 ___ Hypoparathyroidism can also be caused by: ___ * Low levels of magnesium in your blood, which can affect the function of your parathyroid glands. Normal magnesium levels are required for optimum secretion of parathyroid hormone. ___ * A condition called metabolic alkalosis, in which there are chemical imbalances in your bloodstream.
--------------- http://curezone.com/dental/heart_attack.asp ___ "Research has demonstrated that 100% of all root canals result in residual infection due to the imperfect seal that allows bacteria to penetrate. The toxins given off by these bacteria are more toxic than mercury. These toxins can cause systemic diseases of the heart, kidney, uterus, and nervous and endocrine systems. There are 1000's of articles on nickel being a carcinogen." Heart attack Root Canal Cover Up - Weston Price would take a person who had had a heart attack, take out the tooth with the root canal, take a little segment of it, put it under the skin of a rabbit. In about 10 days that rabbit would die of a heart attack. Dr. George Meinig --- "Root Canal Cover-Up" Root Canals Pose Health Threat - An Interview with George Meinig, D.D.S. "Dr. Price undertook his investigations in 1900. He continued until 1925, and published his work in two volumes in 1923. In 1915 the National Dental Association (which changed its name a few years later to The American Dental Association) was so impressed with his work that they appointed Dr. Price their first Research Director. His Advisory Board read like a Who's Who in medicine and dentistry for that era. They represented the fields of bacteriology, pathology, rheumatology, surgery, chemistry, and cardiology. At one point in his writings Dr. Price made this observation: "Dr. Frank Billings (M.D.), probably more than any other American internist, is due credit for the early recognition of the importance of streptococcal focal infections in systemic involvements." What's really unfortunate here is that very valuable information was covered up and totally buried some 70 years ago by a minority group of autocratic doctors who just didn't believe or couldn't grasp - the focal infection theory. " ___ http://www.revach.net/article.php?id=1675 ___ Higher Doses of NSAIDs May Bring on Heart Attacks ___ Even over-the-counter drugs like Motrin and Advil can put you in the same boat as the 60,000 who died from taking Vioxx. ___ http://www.mercola.com/2006/jun/15/higher_doses_of_nsaids_may_bring_on_heart_attacks.htm ___ High-Protein Diets [too much meat] May Damage Your Kidneys 4/5/03 ___ High-protein diets may damage the kidneys of people who already have a kidney problem. Find out why eating your protein raw may keep this problem in check ___ http://www.mercola.com/2003/apr/5/high_protein_diet.htm ___ Secret Kidney Disease 1/8/05 ___ Ten to twenty million Americans are suffering from kidney disease and don't even know it. Find out the likely culprits ___ http://www.mercola.com/2005/jan/8/kidney_disease.htm ___ One major culprit is taking OTC pain pills such as aspirin, Motrin, Advil or Tylenol, which can cause kidney damage. About 15 percent of the people on dialysis (an artificial blood-filtering process used to clean the blood of malfunctioning kidneys) are getting this treatment as a result of the damage that Tylenol and/or aspirin did to their kidneys. So, avoiding Tylenol and aspirin will be very important to preventing kidney disease. ___ Simply put, virtually NO ONE needs to take statin drugs. When you treat the symptoms with a drug, you are in no way, shape or form treating the cause. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that artificial drugs cause serious side effects. ___ --->>>Another danger to your kidneys is mercury. When you eat too much contaminated fish or drink repeatedly from a polluted water supply, you may be setting yourself up for chronic mercury poisoning. Health problems that can result from mercury poisoning include: * Nervous system damage * Kidney disease * Birth defects * Dental problems * Mood swings * Mental changes * Hallucinations * Memory loss * Nerve damage * Inability to concentrate ___ Finally, taking Crestor can lead to kidney disease. For instance, the highest, 80-milligram dose of Crestor could not be approved because of serious side effects including muscle and kidney damage. Some say the drug may produce side effects even at lower doses, and caution that patients should be closely monitored when on the drug. ___ http://www.schmidtandclark.com/Dialysis ___ It has come to our attention over the past few years that the frequency of dialysis side effects and deaths among patients has been on the rise. Dialysis Lawsuits: If you or a loved one have been on kidney dialysis, peritoneal dialysis or renal dialysis and experienced a high fever, which required hospitalization or use of antibiotics, you should contact us immediately. You may be entitled to compensation and we can help. What is the problem? A pyrogenic reaction is a condition wherein the patient experiences an extremely high fever within 72 hours of receiving a dialysis treatment. These high fevers are caused by extremely large infections and will usually cause hospitalization. While the dialysis patient is in the hospital, they can expect to receive treatment with intravenous antibiotics. It is very unfortunate that many people who suffer from these high fevers caused by pyrogenic reactions never recover and die within days. The source of the pyrogenic reaction infections is bio film contamination. Bio film contamination is caused by bacteria found in the water contained in a dialysis machine. The worst aspect of these types of infections is the fact that the bacterium is injected directly into a dialysis patient's blood stream. Through this process, the bacteria will get around the bodies natural defense mechanism and is the reason why these types of infections are so very dangerous.
