Reverse Chronic Kidney Disease-how to improve kidney function and avoid dialysis
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a leading public health problem worldwide. It has been estimated to affect about 13.4% of the population. In the United States, nearly 40 million people suffer from CKD. But there are not many effective treatments for this disease. Yet, there are healthy remedies for kidney disease that are unknown to the people with CKD. A diet low in protein and phosphorus is usually one that is plant-based. This is a good kidney disease diet but is not commonly promoted. Rather, in the US and many western countries, people grow up being taught that they must eat lots of meat to be healthy. But meat and meat products can be detrimental to kidney health (as well as heart health). We emphasize this fact in this book with scientific studies to back the claim. Drinking enough water is essential to kidney health and wellness but it is not always emphasized. This book shows readers not just that drinking water is good for your kidneys, but how. It also shows how certain common vitamins, teas and herbs can help improve kidney function and halt and even reverse CKD and avoid dialysis. We provide relevant published studies for proof and further reading.
