Taking Charge of Your Health

Here with me you can see the top 5 most powerful
home remedies to lower creatinine levels in people with chronic kidney disease. Ok, let’s see what our number 5 is. I’ll give you a big spoiler: all of the home
remedies I’ll show you today WORK. This is a very powerful one
Our number 4 is a home remedy with some really wild claims on the internet
This one is actually proven not just to lower creatinine but even to fight heart disease Hello this is Katherine, welcome to 00kidney. If you suffer from kidney disease, there’s
a plethora of dubious home remedies you could have tried without much success – but there’s
also the chance that something that you already have in your pantry may actually work to lower
your creatinine levels. This is why I’m making this video today. I’ve only selected the home remedies that
will give you best results in terms of lowering creatinine and improving renal function. Because they’re proven to work by scientific
research. And I’ve ranked them. All these remedies here with me are things
you may already have at home or that are really really inexpensive and easy to find. People with kidney disease more than anyone
else need to know what they can use to improve their health and what will only cause troubles. Yes taking care of ourselves is a lot easier
when we know exactly what we need. So I’m going to get a little bit in deeper
about this topic. I’ll show you what home remedies are safe
for you and what aren’t. ok, let’s see what our number 5 is. This is a very powerful one, this home remedy
alone was proven capable of stopping the progression of CKD in the vast majority of patients during
a clinical trial. Want to know what it is? Let’s see what’s inside It’s… baking soda! Not many people know about the many benefits
of baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate, because it’s more used to wash fruits and veggies
or to bake cakes than as a supplement. Yes, this is something that everyone has in
their pantry, but it’s still so powerful in fighting high creatinine levels! But why is baking soda so useful to fight
kidney disease? One of the kidney’s jobs is to keep acidity-alkalinity
in balance. In people with kidney disease, this balance
is often compromised, so there’s more acid in the body than the kidneys can manage. If too much acidity builds up, it will cause
further kidney damage. This is a condition called metabolic acidosis,
often associated with chronic kidney disease. This condition can result in bone problems,
protein wasting and damage to the kidneys, accelerating the progression of CKD. This is where baking soda can help: it neutralizes
excess acids, reduces the payload on the kidneys and brings the acid alkaline level back into
balance. And this is actually proven by science. Firstly tested during clinical trials conducted
at the Royal London Hospital and published in the Journal of the American Society of
Nephrology, sodium bicarbonate was proven capable of stopping or greatly slowing down
the progression of CKD in the vast majority of test subjects. A treatment based on sodium bicarbonate was
tested over a period of a year. The decline of kidney function in treated
patients was two third slower than those in the control group. This rate of decline was comparable to what
would be expected with normal ageing. The study showed that treated patients were
less likely to develop end-stage renal failure. What are the correct dosages for baking soda? Baking soda can be ingested or taken sublingually. Modern day kidney experts recommend beginning
treatment with small doses of sodium bicarbonate. So start with half to one teaspoon of baking
soda a day and then the quantity will be increased on lowered depending on your blood work. Many patients also take sodium bicarbonate
in tablets format. Usually 1 tablet is 650mg or 1 grain. This product is not very often found in pharmacies
but can be purchased online, has it. But you can also use regular baking soda,
and buy it at the supermarket, like this one I have. The taste is a bit harsh but it costs a lot
less. Sodium bicarbonate should be taken between
meals on an empty stomach to avoid bloating. Are there side effects with baking soda? In some cases sodium bicarbonate can upset
sensitive stomachs or cause nausea. However, it’s usually easy for the patient
to get used to the taste. Some doctors avoid giving sodium bicarbonate
to patients because there are suspects that it can cause elevated blood pressure. However, if your sodium intake is already
low, this shouldn’t be an issue. Baking soda is less than 30% sodium, so there’s
less sodium in a teaspoon of baking soda than in a piece of bread. Now, while there is strong evidence of the
benefits of using baking soda as a supplement, I strongly encourage you to talk to your physician
before starting to use any supplement. So let me know in comment section if you have
ever used baking soda as a supplement and if you plan of using it. Cannot wait to hear from you. And if you could give a like to this video
while you are at it… it would be great! Thank you! Ok, let’s move on to our number 4
Our number 4 is a home remedy with some really wild claim on the internet. Some say that it can increase energy levels
and have all sorts of beneficial effects on health, like helping lose weight, killing
bacteria and infections and even stopping diabetes. There’s even people using it to calm the itch
and even for the hygiene of the intimate areas! Are all these claims true? Let’s find out. Our number 4 is… Apple cider vinegar! One of the oldest home remedy. Apple cider vinegar for sure has some very
interesting properties. Unfortunately not all claims about it are
supported by science. But, even if there have been some bogus claims
during the years about apple cider vinegar, ACV in short, some of it’s healthy properties
have been proven true by actual studies. And some of the properties of ACv are really
useful for kidney disease patients. So today I’ll try and make things a little
bit clearer about what ACV can do and what it cannot do. What are the PROVEN health benefits of Apple
cider vinegar? First of all it can Lower Blood Sugar Levels
and Fights Diabetes. Yes, the most successful application of ACV
is in patients with type 2 diabetes, the leading cause of chronic kidney disease. This alone would make it interesting for us. Type 2 diabetes is characterized by high blood
sugar levels, either because of insulin resistance or an inability to produce insulin. ACV has a powerful effect in keeping blood
sugar levels in the normal range and on improving insulin levels. Numerous other studies in humans show that
vinegar can improve insulin function and lower blood sugar levels after meals. For these reasons, vinegar can be useful for
people with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or those who want to keep their blood sugar levels
low for other reasons. And there’s another really really important
benefit of ACV for people suffering from chronic kidney disease. ACV is supposed to Lower Cholesterol and to
Improve Heart Health. Heart disease is not just a risk factor for
CKD, it is currently the world’s most common cause of premature death. Many animal studies suggest that apple cider
vinegar can lower triglyceride levels and cholesterol, along with several other heart
disease risk factors. And there are even studies showing that vinegar
can reduce high blood pressure. Unfortunately these studies are mostly done
on animals, so there’s still need for more evidence to prove that this can be true for
humans too. How should you use ACV? As I was saying, ACV can lower blood sugar
levels if used during meals. So start by incorporating it in your diet
as a salad dressing, for example. I always recommend to use organic unfiltered
apple cider vinegar. Some people also like to dilute it in water
and drink it as a beverage. Common dosages range from 1-2 teaspoons (5-10
ml) to 1-2 tablespoons (15-30 ml) per day, mixed in a large glass of water. It’s best to start with small doses and avoid
taking large amounts. Does ACV have any side effects? Yes, there are some side effects worth mentioning. If you take too much of it, ACV can cause
drug interactions especially with blood-sugar-lowering medications. It can also cause tooth enamel erosion. So always check with your doctor before increasing
your intake of ACV or really any type of supplements. Ok, let’s see what our number 3 is! This is a home remedy that packs an incredible
list of benefits for the health of the kidneys: it decreases inflammation, improves immune
function, lowers cholesterol and triglycerides and can even reduce high blood sugar levels. Ok, let’s see what we have here… KEFIR this is kefir, as you can see… YOGURT whole fermented milk
and this is organic fermented soy. What do these have to do with our top 5 of
home remedies to lower creatinine? Bifidus is the key here. Yes, all these products are sources of PROBIOTICS! And probiotics are proven to be really, really
healthy for the kidneys! As you can see from the lid on this one, this
contains bifidus. Bifidus is a beneficial bacteria species also
known as Bifidobacterium. It’s a species of probiotics you’ll find in
fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, kombucha, fermented soy and even in some types of cheese. I got some examples today so we can take a
look at them and I can show you how to use them. So all these are sources of probiotics. You can find all these products at the grocery
stores or at the supermarket. What are probiotics? Probiotics are the good bacteria present in
your gut. Yes, these foods contain live microorganisms
similar to the ones already living in your gut. They are proven to offer health benefits when
consumed in adequate amounts. The word “probiotic” itself is often translated
to “beneficial for life.” So these foods are actually going to increase
the number of healthy bacteria in the gut and to lower the number of bacteria that can
cause illness or inflammation. So less bad bacteria and more good bacteria,
to put it in a very simple way. And balancing the microbiome by replenishing
the good bacteria may lead to improved digestion and better immunity. This is especially true for people suffering
from chronic diseases, since it’s harder for them to have a perfectly balanced gut flora. So, how does the gut get out of balance? Many factors can throw your gut out of balance. For example, things like
Stress, Taking antibiotics, Kidney stones, Lack of sleep… can all create problems with
the gut bacteria. Also problems like UTIs, heartburn, constipation
can cause a lot of troubles with the gut microbiome. Does any of these sound familiar? In this case, eating more probiotic rich foods
can really help you improving not just your gut health but the health of your kidneys. Should you eat more probiotic rich foods to
improve your kidney health? Well, the benefits of probiotics are actually
proven to help with kidney function. And a lot of people suffering from kidney
disease could benefit from a healthier gut. Problems with the kidneys and the urinary
tract are often going to increase the chance of gastrointestinal problems. And it’s harder to improve kidney function
when your body cannot properly assimilate vitamins and micronutrients from foods because
the gut bacteria are compromised. And when there aren’t enough good bacteria
in the gut, those missing bacteria are going to be replaced by other, potentially dangerous
bacteria. This will greatly increase the chance of infections. More probiotics and a more balanced gut flora
also means that your body will be able to process uremic toxins better, reducing the
workload on the kidneys. What are the best way to add probiotics to
your renal diet? Most of the studies showing benefits used
dosages of 1 billion to 100 billion live organisms or colony-forming units (CFU in short) per
day. Now, yogurt brands to put the probiotic label
on their yogurt only need 1 billion CFU in a single yogurt. Obviously there could be more, but we don’t
know how much because it’s not on the label. Kefir usual has more probiotics in it, about
25-30 billion per serving. Now, if you don’t want dairy in your diet,
there’s the option of soy, or even of using probiotic supplements. You can get even more CFU from supplements
and you will also know for sure how many live organism you will find in a serving, since
food brands aren’t usually going to put this info on the labels of their yogurts. What are the side effects of probiotic rich
foods and supplements? The good bacteria present in these foods already
exist in the body. So probiotics are totally safe for most people. But there are still a couple of things to
say. Like many foods, they can trigger an allergic
reaction or cause mild stomach problems. There could be mild symptoms, especially the
first few days you start taking them. Those symptoms usually go away very fast,
as soon as the body gets used to having more of these bacteria. So, while these side effects are unlikely,
I still recommend you to talk to your doctor and to get informed before making any significant
changes in your diet Ok, time to see what our Number 2 is… This one is actually proven not just to lower
creatinine but even to fight heart disease, lower cholesterol and even the risk for cancer! It is… Omega3! One of the best supplements for the health
of the kidneys! Omega 3 are responsible for most of the benefits
associated with a diet rich in seafood. In fact, few nutrients have been studied as
thoroughly as omega-3 fatty acids. They have a huge list of benefits and all
of these benefits are proven by several studies. Omega 3 can protect against heart disease
and stroke. They can reduce the symptoms of mental disorders
and ADHD. Can fight inflammation in the body and reduce
mental decline in the elderlies. They can improve sleep quality,
bone and joint health, reduce fat in the liver and are even associated
with a lower risk for cancer. It’s a lot of benefits for a just a couple
of pills, right? However, most people who eat a standard Western
diet are not eating nearly enough omega-3 fats. So it’s a good idea for everyone to add more
omega 3 to their diet, but especially for people with CKD. Question: can omega 3 lower creatinine levels? Omega-3 fatty acid has been shown, during
several clinical trials, to reduce high blood pressure, one of the leading causes of CKD. There’s also evidence that it can reduce proteinuria,
triglycerides and inflammation in people with kidney disease. During long term, double blind, clinical trials
this supplement has also shown to reduce the progression of kidney disease in IgA Nephropathy
patients. Yes, this home remedy is really great, so
if you know anyone who could benefit from it and who doesn’t know about all these benefits,
send them this video now! HOW TO TAKE omega 3s? The best way to ensure optimal omega-3 intake
is to eat fatty fish at least twice per week. Fishes more rich in omega 3s are those that
cost less, because omega 3s come from fish oil and fishes more rich in oil are usually
considered less tasty. We’re talking about mackerel, herring, sardines,
anchovies, salmon… yes, these are some of the healthiest fishes. But you can also find omega 3s in chia seeds
and flaxseeds. However, if you don’t eat a lot of fatty fish
or seafood, you may want to consider taking a supplement. In fact, most of the studies on the benefits
of omega-3 use supplements. Actually, I take Omega 3s too, the benefits
are too many even for healthy people not to take it
Are there any side effects involved with omega 3s? According to the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA), taking up to 2,000 mg of combined EPA and DHA per day from supplements is safe. In high doses, omega-3s have blood-thinning
effects. Speak to your doctor if you have a bleeding
disorder or are taking blood thinning medications. Now, before I’ll show you our number 1… A lot of people here are using this program
to improve their kidney function and lower their creatinine. Yes, there are some very inspiring success
stories here on 00kidney, people were basically able to reverse their kidney disease thanks
to what they learned from this program. I’m leaving a link here if you want to know
more. And our number 1 is… Water! I cannot make a list of home remedies that
actually work for the kidneys without including water. It’s the most important thing and it’s the
basis for any detoxifying program. More about detoxing in this video

  1. Katherine, I'm sorry, but you are seriously misinformed about gut bacteria and probiotics. First, those commercial dairy products you just showed us, by the time they are taken home & refrigerated, you'd be lucky if several bacteria were still alive due to the temperature changes from factory to home. Then when you eat those that are alive and very weakened, your stomach acid will destroy them before they make it down into the gut.

    Lets say by some miracle some do get down into the gut, what do you think that they will do to improve anyone's health?

    Don't buy into big time marketing and parroting of misinformation! Legally, the manufacturers can print on the pkg that the product contains a "billion or more" bacteria bcos it does at the time of packaging, but they know that they will not survive long in the plastic container, nor the temperature changes from the factory to the store to the home to the office.

    * You should speak to Dr. Borody Australia, the pioneer of the Fecal Transplant method. Study his works, you will learn a lot about gut bacteria from him.

    Long ago, before the Homogenized milk procedure was invented, people would ferment the "raw" cow/goat/sheep milk in order for the bacteria to chomp down the "large" milk solids so that the dairy was easier to digest. Now days, it's just "huge marketing money maker". Nothing more.

    * Prebiotics is the way to go. It always has been. Everyone should educate themselves on what actually feeds the "existing" gut bacteria that "are" attached to our gut walls.

    * Also study how the gut bacteria, when fed the proper PREBIOTICS, actually make BUTYRATE (also found in butter and some dairy products). Butyrate "may" help the Kidneys as it is a Short Chain Fatty Acid.

    * Study Resistant Starch as well: Modulation of the Gut Microbiota by Resistant Starch as a Treatment of Chronic Kidney Diseases: Evidence of Efficacy and Mechanistic Insights.

    * Prebiotics, Butyrate & Resistant Starch are the keys to better overall health & possibly for heart & kidneys too, NOT commercially infused probiotic dairy products, which can't do much bcos they can't adhere to our gut walls, they are just pooped out!

  2. Hi Katherine – P.S. to my last post. You will find this video on the topic of Resistant Starch very interesting:
    Weird Carbs: Your Body & “Resistant” Starch —

  3. Hello, Katherine, keep-up the Good Work. I thought creatinine, was part of a Carrot's, for your eyes, if the Rabbit, like, I should like, it. But as usual, I was wrong. Thank for setting me straight. I tried to remain silent, and just try, to watch videos. It seems I always out of line when I watch the Video and defend you. As I say, you can handle it, Katherine, grow-up enough, and I will stay out of your Personal Business. ([email protected]). I care about her, Only, in a Christian Ways. THANKs

  4. I have high blood pressure and diabetes also ckd stage 3. In Remission from cancer too. Would bicarbonate soda help or make hypertension worse?
