kidney detox
« on: October 17, 2013, 03:35:25 pm »
Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good kidney detox?
I got my blood test results back and I have mildly high uric acid(7.9) and my BUN is a little on the high side as well (19) .. my Calcium levels were normal.

Also, I had 2 episodes of kidney stones about 5 years ago. Since then I have been drinking about 3QT of water everyday, and never had another episode, but I still would like to detox the kidney.

Thanks

Well, I can understand why you'd want to detox!

Here's a few comments/questions:

--It really helps to know what kind of stone you had.  Any chance you know that?

--The kidneys can clean themselves if you eat right and drink plenty of fluids and, depending on the kind of stone you have, avoid oxalates (tea, spinach, etc.)

--Lemon juice may cleanse and protect per this very good NY Times article:

http://health.nytimes.com/health/guides/disease/kidney-stones/prevention.html

It's cheap and easy to try.

--If you want to give your body a chance to heal, some say animal protein causes issues.  I don't know why it would as I've never seen a cause for this, but a number of studies show a linkage:

Some meat eating gurus say this has been debunked, but I'm not sure why.

--Dandelion and Nettle leaf are supposed to be a diuretic and help with kidney stones.  I could not find a study to support it though.

--By the way I eat a TON of oxalates (lots of tea, lots of spinach) and I get a decent amount of Calcium from nonfat yogurt and my Ester C.  So I should be hitting the mother lode.  What I believe is saving me is that I drink a LOT of fluids.

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
