Using sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), will help in any stage of kidney dysfunction, whether early on or in the latest stages, including dialysis.
Recent research on animals have proved to postively alter gene expression in obstructed kidneys using two common Chinese herbs, namely, Astragalus and Dong Quai.

In the previous Daily Topic, I made a brief mention of Oxidative Stress Relief (OSR) for the removal of heavy metals.
OSR is far more desirable to use than EDTA chelation, DMSA or many other professionally used metal detoxification agent. The simple reason is that these other chelators do not bind tightly enough to the metals for safe removal, but instead lose their "grip" and...Read Full Post »

Primitive men and women have died with perfect teeth into old age, yet never once brushed their teeth.
Advertisers have been selling the belief that we 'need' to brush our teeth, and it further hurts matters that in many cultures, there is a social stigma, keeping a pressure on to brush, brush and brush more!
What if I told you that...Read Full Post »

Mainstream medicine breeds hatred when a possible truth threatens to undermine its all mighty empire of "cut, burn and poison."
In the past, I've mentioned a little about sodium bicarbonate intravenous treatment for various forms of cancer. The primary obstacle in receiving this treatment is to find willing medical staff to administer it!

Ever wondered if cavemen ever went jogging? It probably hasn't crossed your mind, it certainly hasn't mine.
Cavemen probably did a lot of sprinting, and their primary motivation was to catch a "lunch" or perhaps avoid becoming something Else's lunch!
Human physiology was designed for sprinting, not for endurance...Read Full Post »

Mercury in Fish? Don't worry about it!
I realize this statement might not be so easy to swallow. Just about every health publication around warns against eating fish that are known to be loaded with mercury. Well, I haven't been too worried about this, as I have consumed swordfish with 'reckless abandon' for years!
However, according to ...Read Full Post »

Fiber is not necessary for human health. Fiber from fruit and vegetables is just fine, however what isn't necessary and even detrimental are fiber cereals, grains and psyllium.
So if what I say is true, then why do most doctors recommend to eat more fiber?
The recommendation to use fiber for constipation originally began as a way to cover ...Read Full Post »

For whatever mysterious reason, the vast majority of dermatologists still share the outdated belief that diet is unrelated to the etiology of acne. Moreover, topical products sold commercially take full advantage the public's immense ignorance about the role of diet and acne.
Conventional approaches to acne are the use of topical retinoids, benzoyl peroxid...Read Full Post »

Medical school breeds dogma. This dogma is in the form of so many outdated theories still in practice today. With a very few questioning unproven methodologies, and it's no wonder sickness is spread wide and far.
Many theories, taught as 'fact' are repeated enough to become a perceived fact. It makes the process of educating the 'educated' a little more difficult that it ought t...Read Full Post »

Just as many organizations exist to raise money for cancer research, now there are fund raising campaigns for autism spectrum disorders. Just as there are "no" cures for cancer, they'll proclaim that the cause of autism is 'unknown.'
It's the mercury, and how do we know? Amish people rarely get vaccinated, and the only case of Amish autism I have heard of involved an amish receiv...Read Full Post »

There's a lot wrong with the dental profession. In fact, just about everything is wrong with the dental profession. Just a few examples are mercury-filled amalgams, root canals and any sort of dental filling material imaginable.
It's a good idea to remove existing root canals and to definitely avoid getting any new ones. One obvious question is, what does one do when the e...Read Full Post »

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) was originally used by placing a patient with the "bends" or nitrogen sickness in a pressure chamber and increasing the pressure to 3.0 atmosphere with 100% oxygen. Not long after, it was recognized that hyperbaric oxygen therapy could also facilitate wound healing in patients with poor circulation.
The first open heart surgeries ...Read Full Post »
