Cleaning Up Your Kidneys: Helpful Foods and Drinks to Consider

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, June 27, 6:36 PM

Did you know that when your kidneys do not function properly metabolic waste products accumulate in your blood which eventually lead to symptoms such as weakness, shortness of breath, confusion, and abnormal heart rhythms?

 

This information is from Dr Michael Greger, in his best selling book, “How Not to Die”.

 

Dr Greger says that most people with very poor kidney function don’t experience any symptoms. They either need a new kidney or need a transplant. Your kidneys can also fail suddenly because of certain toxins, infections, or urinary blockage.

 

The stats show that one in three people in the U.S. over the age of sixty-four may suffer from chronic kidney disease (CKD). However Dr Greger says that three-quarters of the millions affected may not even know they have the disease.

 

This is very scary news. More than half of American adults aged thirty to sixty-four are expected says Dr Greger to develop kidney disease during their lifetimes. And most people die before reaching the dialysis stage because damaged kidneys take a huge toll on other body organs.

 

Proper heart function is tied to your kidneys. Here comes the kicker. Patients who are under age forty-five with kidney failure can be hundreds of times more likely to die of heart disease than those with working kidneys says Dr Greger.

 

Health Tips: Plant based real whole food to the rescue. You knew there was some good news. This lifestyle regimen is the best way to prevent and treat kidney disease.

 

You know that the Western or Standard American Diet is deadly to blood vessels in the heart and brain. So what do you think it does to your kidneys?

 

From clinical trials it has been shown that eating plant protein instead of animal based helps slow the deterioration of your kidney function. A 2014 double blind placebo controlled trial showed that plant protein helped preserve function in sick kidneys.

 

Animal protein is acid based, another reason why it is so harmful for your kidneys. Your body is the same today as it was in evolutionary times. Ancient human diets consisted almost entirely of plants. Your body is alkaline as are plants.
