My Husband is diagnosed with stage 3 kidney disease. His creatine has been steady for the past couple years around 2.6, but his last blood test shows it jumped to 3. Has anyone had any success with treating kidney disease naturally with diet or supplements? I have seen several web-sites that claim you can repair kidney function naturally but you have to buy a book or pay some sort of fee. Not sure where the truth lies. What's your experience?

Thanks in advance.

Each of us is responsible for our own health but we need all the information so we can make a good decision. Lots of information on the internet on how people go about healing. There are different views on all disease so study it all so you can make a wise decision. The most important thing is to get all the information so you can make a wise decision. Google alternative treatment for kidney disease if you don't want to buy the book. You will find free information concerning diet and supplements you can take. The key to healing is diet. When we find the correct diet the body can heal itself.

Thanks Eat2bwell. I have been doing some reading online, but I haven't really come across anyone who has had firsthand experience. I thought this might be a good place to ask.

Hi Ruey. I'm a great believer in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). My wife is ethnic Chinese from Singapore and I'm Caucasian. She's used TCM to help a number of people in my family, who now also swear by it. My dad, for example, suffered from COPD. His doctor told him he would have to have oxygen with him all the time. Needless to say, he was rather depressed by that prospect. My wife talked to an herbalist who gave her a recipe for some soup. He took that a few times and when he returned to the doctor for another checkup, the doctor said, "I don't know what you're doing, but keep doing it. You don't need any oxygen at all." That made him a believer.

If you live in an area with Chinese herb stores, go ask them. You can also Google Traditional Chinese Medicine for kidney disease.

I honestly don't know how effective the TCM treatments are. With my dad, I think there was some therapeutic value to the herbs he drank, but I think just as much of his improvement was psychological, kind of a placebo effect. He thought it would work for him, so it did.

Good luck!

No. This type of kidney disease cannot be treated with natural remedies. I so much wish it was otherwise. I've suffered kidney failure more than once. Although there may be natural ways to help with pain or a few minor problems, your husband (and you with him) need to consult a nephrologist. Now. Don't wait.

Thanks...He has a nephrologist that he sees regularly. He has to go for regular blood tests to monitor any changes in his Creatine levels. They also said he should be on a low protein, low salt diet.

That diet may help his health not get worse, but has his nephrologist talked with him about transplantation, and about finding a good program to get involved with, and what any complications may be? If not, these are the talks that should be happening.

No. He has other health issues so I don't think he's a candidate for a transplant. What types of programs are you referring to that he should get involved with? Thanks.

Some people use an organic raw fruits and vegetables diet along with fasting to heal their kidneys. Dr. Bergman explains in his video what is necessary for healing your kidneys.

Other health issues should be becoming less of an obstacle. But what are these other issues? The programs I meant were good transplant programs - those that can deal with incompatible blood typing and high levels of antibodies, and have a short wait time and therapy. To find one close to you, I'd need to know roughly where you are and in which country.
