IS KIDNEY DISEASE ACTUALLY LINKED TO BUBBLE BATHS?

Every day we hear of someone needing a kidney transplant. It really gets to me that medicine offers nothing BEFORE the option of surgery. I mean, how drastic is that? Especially when a few minor changes, or a simple change of your family’s culture can not only prevent the need for surgery but also encourage a return to vital health.

Patient, aged 4, with history of UTIs, renal scarring and congenital kidney disorder which presented as extra ureter, which resulted in ‘backwashing’ of urine – rather than excreting via bladder, backwashing was resulting in trapping and stagnation of old urine. Doctors had discussed with parents, the possibility of a transplant/surgical removal of extra ureter in future. This child spent frequent periods hospitalised and was chronically unwell. She saw a specialist every few months and was frequently at the doctor’s surgery.

Step 1 – bathing habits. The first question was whether the child bathed or showered, and how frequently. Daily soaking in a hot bath, in regular children’s bubble bath meant that the known kidney/mucosa irritants in bubble bath were being absorbed daily. The result was that these chemicals lay dormant but constantly irritating her urinary system. The only bubble bath that I recommend, one without sodium laurel sulphate and other organ damaging toxins known to be included in ingredients, was recommended for baths, but also that bathing should only be done once or twice a week – all other times to be either a wash or a shower.

Step 2 – a homœopathic complex known to remove infection and work as a kidney tonic – and one to absorb scar tissue was given.

Step 3 – the child’s eyes were glazed and the sclera had a thick yellow line running horizontally beside the irises (dairy intolerance). Vivid necrosis was reflected in her pelvic region of the irises. Minor changes to her diet – removal of dairy, sugar (yeast infection) and acidic foods were recommended.

Within a week, the child was no longer experiencing pain or irritation. Upon examination, she had no glandular swelling or odour. A month later, her mother kept the previously scheduled appointment at the children’s hospital just to double check it was not a coincidence. She returned late that night and drove to my house. I read the test results in shock – kidney scarring had not only begun to heal, but showed up on scans as a shadow of its former self. The previously obvious swelling and enlargement of the extra ureter was no longer apparent. All inflammation had disappeared and the renal specialist offered no explanation as to why it had improved so drastically. The mother made a comment about the path she had chosen and all the doctor said was, “Oh, I don’t think that would make such a difference but if you think it works, keep on doing it.”

This case may seem a little one, and it may be easy to dismiss it as such, but if you consider that the child had suffered chronic infection since birth, had scar tissue that was impairing her renal function, and that her specialist had already begun talking about a transplant, this child’s life was most certainly spared from one of poor health. Considering doctors believe homœopathy to be a placebo medicine at best, argue that there is no such thing as lactose intolerance, and refuse to accept that personal and hygiene care products could have any baring on our health, it simply highlights the fact that each of us stands to gain so much by simply changing a few things we take for granted.

All cases are different – and should be treated as a whole rather than one symptom (ie ‘infection’) but make no mistake, if ANY symptom set was permitted a round table discussion and treatment, including addressing natural and safe options, just maybe the outcome and chronicity of public health would paint a very different picture.
