NDK Kidney Health Protocol


by Michael Rutherford 0 Comments

Your kidneys play many roles, such as creating hormones, filtering fluids, balancing minerals, and more. The hormones produced help to produce red blood cells, control blood pressure, and maintain strong healthy bones. When the kidneys are not functioning properly, nerves, muscles, and other tissues in the body lose balance.

As blood and other fluids flow through the kidneys they filter out salts, minerals, acids, and wastes needing to be eliminated from the body. Not only do these processes require nutrients, the kidneys are greatly affected by mineral imbalance, inflammation, infection, trauma, drug use, and toxins. The goal when supporting kidney function is to reduce these triggers, as well as give supporting nutrients.

WHO’S AT RISK:

  • Diabetics
  • Those over 60
  • Those with a history of poor dietary habits
  • History of kidney stones
  • Those with hypertension
  • Those with other inflammatory issues

    RISKS:

    When left unmanaged, kidney issues can lead to severe health risks including cancer, organ failure, Lupus, heart disease, and other severe problems.

    SIGNS & SYMPTOMS:

    • Increased urine, especially at night (sometimes decreased urine can happen as well)
    • Swollen ankles and/or feet
    • Low energy / poor sleep
    • Poor appetite
    • Pain in middle of your back

    NUTRITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS:

    When it comes to prevention, a diverse diet, rich in all sorts of veggies, herbs, and some fruits, as well as grass-fed and pastured meats, is best. If you have kidney disease, or renal failure, it’s best to work with your medical team to figure out a more detailed diet for you, as certain conditions may warrant limiting certain nutrients that are normally good for a healthy person, but may become problematic due to the kidneys inability to properly filter.

    IT’S CRUCIAL WHEN FOCUSING ON KIDNEY HEALTH TO HAVE A DIET SPECIFICALLY RICH IN PLANTS, FULL OF ANTIOXIDANTS, POLYPHENOLS, AND OTHER POWERFUL PHYTONUTRIENTS.

    EXAMPLES:

    • Beets
    • Avocado
    • Spinach
    • Celery
    • Blueberries
    • Cranberries
    • Purple potatoes
    • Salmon
    • Sardines
    • Grass-fed beef

    LIFESTYLE RECOMMENDATIONS:

    Hydration is crucial when you are trying to support kidney function. Chronic dehydration, even at low levels, can place high amounts of stress on the kidneys. When eating a real, whole food based diet, it’s recommended to drink around 60-90 ounces of water daily. This does not include coffees, teas, or alcoholic beverages. If under abnormal conditions such as, heavy exercise or out in high heat, you may need to increase accordingly.

    SUPPLEMENTAL PROTOCOL:

    RENAL PLUS is a potent multi-targeted formula designed to optimize kidney function. Packed with anti-oxidants, botanicals, and glandular tissue, used as building blocks for targeted tissues.
    DOSAGE: Take 2 capsules, 2x daily with food

    ACTI-MAG PLUS is loaded with B vitamins, beet root extract, magnesium and more. B vitamins are a class of nutrients involved in nearly every process in the body. Beet root is packed with compounds that help increase oxygen in the blood, helping to reduce blood pressure, easing stress on the kidneys. Magnesium is a crucial electrolyte, helping to support kidney function and balance minerals in the blood.
    DOSAGE: Take 1 scoop in water daily

    OPTIMAL EFAS is a blend of fatty acids, Omega 3, 6, and 9. These fats are used to help balance our inflammatory responses, a crucial element to protecting the kidneys, and the rest of our health!
    DOSAGE: Take 3 capsules daily with food

    BIO-DK MULSION is an amazing blend of vitamins D and K2, nutrients required in proper calcium balance. Improper calcium utilization is part of protecting the kidneys, by way of reducing risk of kidney stones.
    DOSAGE: Take 5 drops per day with food

    OR

    BIO-D MULSION FORTE is the vitamin D option for those who may be on blood thinners and must closely monitor their vitamin K intake. Vitamin D alone is still an important piece of of the puzzle for proper calcium balance, and helps with proper absorption and use. You will still receive some vitamin K through diet to help with calcium placement.
    DOSAGE: Take 2 drops daily with food

    BIO-C PLUS is packed with highly bio-available vitamin C, one of natures most powerful anti-oxidants. Not only does it contain vitamin C, but the co-factors required to help absorb and utilize the nutrient.
    DOSAGE: Take 2 tablets daily
