I had a young man come to me and ask these questions, here is my answer.
Here is what he wrote:
"I am pretty serious about fixing the issue, however, I am not quite there yet.......my doc has me on 2 blood pressure meds plus thyroid medication because I had a partial thyroidectomy and my pressure even with on medication is 140 over about 100 in her office. What frustrates me the most is that my doctor just wants to treat the symptoms and wants to increase my blood pressure meds. My doctor never tells me why I have kidney disease or why I have high blood pressure....sorta like what came first chicken or the egg. Just hate to be medicated and not get to the real cause. Right now I'm eating far more fruit and veggies than before, and I never felt better, I would constantly use the bathroom at night, and now, just twice, but I'm not there because of eating eggs and salmon. I do this because I'm already very thin after 3 weeks of even this diet, in any case, I am very interested in your protocol, though I think I did see it online. I want to do whatever it takes, but no meat forever is a little difficult for someone who until 2 months ago enjoyed fast food for some odd reason."
Here is my answer:
First of all, most kidney disease is caused by high blood pressure thus that is the egg that comes before the chicken. And we now have proof positive that all animal products creates a compound called Trimethylamine N-Oxide which is a toxin which is created during digestion. This toxin creates inflammation and that inflammation creates disease. Be it kidney disease, heart attacks, arthritis, high blood pressure, strokes, diabetes, cancer, and many more diseases. This is the smoking gun that Dr. Max Gerson was looking for a way back in the 50's. Dr. Gerson took 400 people with incurable tuberculosis and healed 496 of them with just changing their diet. And he also healed lots of people of all kinds of diseases including cancer.
He even healed Dr. Schweitzer and his whole family of many different diseases. And Dr. Schweitzer was so impressed that he took this to congress and told them we have the ability to heal lots of different diseases. And congress with all their powerful lobbies for the dairy industry, beef, chicken, cheese, and other big animal product industries said he had better forget about the whole thing or they would pull his medical license. — Wow Not Good... it all boils down to money. And even Dr. Gerson was poisoned once and he healed himself and then he as poisoned again and was killed. They don't want people to know that we have the ability to heal lots of different things.
How do we heal your high blood pressure? That is easy when I went on my Whole Foods Plant Based diet I had high blood pressure disappear within 3 weeks. Along with my prostate disease, arthritis of 40 years, kidney disease, and much more. And I had always worked out but I was still heavy and on my diet, I lost 40 pounds in 3 weeks and looked great.
I believe that if you go on my Whole Foods Plant Based Diet you will have your blood pressure drop to normal. And eggs are one of the worst foods and salmon is not any different they all produce that Trimethylamine N-Oxide toxin during our digestion process. This means we have to get rid of all beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, fish, seafood, eggs, milk, cheese, and anything else that comes from animals. And by doing this the inflammation in your body go down to almost nothing. And that means your body will heal and start working correctly and that means your blood pressure will become normal. I've seen this happen hundreds of times. But this diet is for the rest of your life, you can't have some animal products here and there. Even a 1/3 teaspoon of animal products causes inflammation for a week. I have seen this for myself when I first went on my diet. Even a sauce containing a little bit of animal product would put me into inflammation.
You say you want to do whatever it takes to be healthy— but you hesitate at getting rid of all the fast food. Well you don't have to give up great tasting food you can have healthy tacos, healthy pizza, healthy burgers, healthy fries, and all the rest of the fast food stuff but have them all be healthy. There are thousands of Whole Foods Plant Based Diet Recipes that can be found on-line. And I create one new recipe every week that I post on-line. So as far as taste goes you don't have to give up a thing.
And veggies are super important for healing kidney disease. I have found that drinking lots of green juices is very healing for the kidneys even though most doctors say you can't have potassium foods. But controlling the potassium with bentonite clay allows the kidneys to heal with these very healing green foods. I've even had people on dialysis show a marked improvement in their blood work within days of starting the green juices and their doctor can't believe it. They just say keep doing whatever it is that you are doing.
And we have lots of toxins in our food and they need to be eliminated. I have seen a 6 fold increase in kidney and liver disease over the years because of the use of pesticides and herbicides— Not Good. So eating organic is the only way to heal your body in general. Take for instance a regular veggie or fruit in the store it contains up to 6 cancer causing chemicals, 12 hormone-disrupting chemicals, and 10 other disease causing chemicals. And some foods contain even 10 more chemicals... Wow, this is not acceptable.
As far as your kidney disease and high blood pressure— I believe it will all disappear if you start my whole foods plant based diet and stay on it. And it's vital that you stop drinking water from plastic, plastic contains up to 24,000 different toxic chemicals that we are exposed too. And those chemicals play havoc with our hormonal system. Especially our thyroid, testes, and ovaries, and tissues that produce hormones. I am not saying you will get off your thyroid medication altogether because of your surgery... but it won't hurt at all. Try to eliminate as much as possible all the plastic in your life. Drink water from stainless steel, glass, and ceramic containers and get yourself a good reverse osmosis filter from any large hardware store.
And by the way, people don't get thin on my diet if they work out. Even people who eat lots of meat can and will lose muscle mass if they don't use their muscles and work out. My dad died of a heart attack at the age of 57 and he ate lots of meat... and he was super thin because he refused to work out. So workout with weights and keep your muscle mass strong and healthy.
And I know you can do this, I am living proof that we can stop treating symptoms and start healing the body and be healthy.
Many Blessings My Friend
