You are thinking incorrectly about this and probably because of the misinformation posted on this forum by certain people.
Leaky Gut is not actually the gut ie colon but the stomach! It does also affect the colon but the source is the stomach.
Candida is also stomach based. That is why most people fail to defeat it and struggle for years. It's not even candida that needs defeating, it is a gram negative bacteria. Candida likes to shack up with these bacteria as it protects them with a biofilm. They can then seed/spore from the biofilm spreading throughout the digestive system.
Check your stomach acid production and you will probably find it is low. Poor food breakdown and diminished stomach function causes many problems for the body including poor protein utilization, poor vitamin and mineral absorption and the risk of parasites as the protective function of the stomach is compromised.
I had a biofilm test done previously which was negative, all though it wasn't necessarily checking for Candida. A colonic specialist once told me I may need more digestive enzymes, so I believe you're right about stomach acid.
I keep getting repeated streptococcus throat infections too, so I definitely want to check the levels of bacteria in my gut and for parasites, as I became unwell after travelling.
However I'm finding it hard to find a reliable, cost efficient lab in the UK which accepts self-referrals.
Any ideas? (Thank you :))
When I had kidney pain I found it very helpful to cleanse them by drinking a quart of freshly squeezed lemon juice with some honey and fresh ginger slices along with an 1/8 tsp of cayenne. This mixture will cleanse the kidneys. Doing this cleanse for a week will get your kidneys working better. Also Dr Christopher's kindey formula will help detoxify and get the kidneys functioning on a higher level.
You should not abuse with Diflucan, because it is quite hard on the kidney, it has side effects and can dammage the kidney. you should limit the use of Diflucan, because it is nephrotoxic. you should use natural products to combat the beast.
I have found the best way to get rid of systemic candida is to detox heavy metals first and then candida dies off on its own. This has been my exerience.
Diflucan didnt work for me i was resistent. And it is harsh on the liver and i bleieve that candida will just come back when you come off it anyway as you havent addressed the reason why candida is there in the first place- heavy metals, especially copper toxicity.
I have been a proponent of PEMF for some time. Googling help for my Cats Kidney Failure revealed some interesting developments I have never seen before.
Including this patent:
Method and device for restoring kidney function using electromagnetic stimulation
WO 2004045484 A2
If you find this patents - the citations alone are a goldmine of data for Kidney Therapy. As we speak my kitty is sleeping as always but also getting PEMF therapy and seems to like it. More to come.
Here is an outtake from the patent application...Within 20 minutes, the urea and creatinine levels decreased by about 20%. After 10 hours, and without additional electromagnetic applications, the urea and creatinine levels decreased by an additional 10%, indicating.
Also note NASA spent $3.5 million to study PEMF therapy. With excellent results apparetnly - how do we get that study?
Has anyone experience blood in their urine after beginning to consume fermented products such as milk kefir, water kefir, fermented vegetables, etc.? Trying to determine if I am pushing my consumption a little to fast or perhaps I should be looking at something else as the source of this development.
I made an account just to reply. First time I had kefir I was reading how unpasturized goats milk is the best way to go in terms of probiotics with kefir. So I ordered online and received the kefir and went on to drink a small carton and within the hour I was peeing blood and I got my first UTI with acute renal failure. It wasn't the kefir I'm sure, it was the milk.
Go and make your own water kefir and you won't be sorry, I love it and have had no problems.
I have been making my own milk kefir for sometime as well as being grain free and have found wonderful health benefits. Like others i thought i would add water kefir to reduce the amount of dairy - soon after drinking my first dose (4 - 6 ozs) of water kefir (which i loved) i developed a UTI. Dr. confirmed small amount of blood in pee sample. I don't want to give up on the water kefir but right now i think I'll stick to milk kefir! I read that cross contamination can affect the balance of both types of kefirs.
Hi there, I was wondering, if I decide to do a kidney cleanse right now, even though I haven't had kidney stone pain in 1 year, will it throw me back into pain when it begins to work..I had 2 kidney stones last year, and I went to the emergency room, where they did exrays and said i had 2 , one small and one about 3 centimeters..I passed the small one but never did pass the larger one. I would like to try the Watermelon or Celery seed cleanse but I am afraid I will go back to pain..any help, would be appreciated..thanks.
I realize your post is from qutie a while ago but I just had a bout w/ kidney stones and spent 2 days in hospital. Anyway, I was realeased w/Rx for meds for pain to see if I could pass 1 that was "lodged in a juncture". Anyway, since then, I've done lots of research on this (this is the first time this has happended and I hope the last) and from all the great people at my local healthfood store as well as a nutrionist and several nurses, don't worry about "churning up something within the kidney and causing yourself to go into horrible pain". The stone(s) still within the kidney can dissolve thru any numerous ways--diet change, cleanses, etc. Unfortunately, one doesn't know if they've gotten rid of those still within kidney till an Xray or Cat scan is done or whatever other ways a hospital checks. Thus you'd have to go see your doctor to know for sure.
Symptoms: pain right side on lower back, pain in back of thigh all down to ankles, no swelling or water retention, cold feet , shortness of breathe can barely breathe sometimes, drinking water causes back pain a little, fatigue and after urinating at the very last drop Of urine I feel a cramp coming from kidney or prostate? I looked online and it said my kidney meridian is clogged..
Health conditions: metal toxicity/candida/dysbiosis
Diet: junk food, vitamin c, calcium supplement, vegatables, whey protein(cysteine), carbs ect...Maybe I have kidney stones?
Done some chelation which could have fried my kidneys if anybody has any ideas let me know, Thanx.
kidney stones can be cure by making some changes in the regular diet and day to day activities:
1. Drinking required water to maintain good urinary flow.
2. Diet should have adequate amount of calcium. Milk, yoghurt, lentils, oranges and other dairy products are rich in calcium
3. Eat right amount of protein- daily protein needs are usually met with 2-3 servings per day.
4. Reduce amount of sodium in diet to 2-3 gms. Limit processed foods like hot dogs, sausages, dry soup, pickles and various convenience mixes as they contain excessive amounts of salt
5. Avoid excessive vitamin C supplements as oxalate is produced from vitamin C and large amounts may increase amount of oxalate content of urine.
6. Avoid foods which are high in oxalates like spinach, almonds, peanuts, nut butters, blueberries.
7. Do not take Vitamin D supplements without prescription of a physician
8. Controlling blood sugar, blood pressure, body weight by regular exercise are all helpful to reduce stone formation.
