Everything we take into our body goes through the kidneys and liver. These organs are part of our energy centers. The nutrients are extracted by the liver and waste products are expelled through the Kidneys. The thing is that we put so many toxins into our bodies that the liver and kidney sometimes cannot keep up, especially if your body is compromised by having Hepatitis C. When this happens the liver and kidneys start having toxin build-up and their efficiency drops. Or if the toxins get too overwhelming for the liver and kidneys, it could stop them from functioning all together!
I was born with an atrophied kidney, so I have to be really careful with my one working kidney and having Hepatitis C on top of that. Magnesium is needed by the body, but too much Magnesium can cause the kidneys to stop, malfunction and can even put a person into a coma. A couple of years ago I took too much Magnesium and as a result my kidneys began hurting. I couldn’t even bend over without pain. It was hard to get up from a chair because my kidneys hurt each time I moved.
I was at a loss of what to do and having Hepatitis C didn’t help the situation. Then I remembered an old remedy that helps clear the kidneys of toxins. I pulled out my Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, took one tablespoon with a fruit juice chaser, because the taste of ACV is Horrible! Within ONE hour, my kidneys had stopped hurting. It truly seems like a miracle, that little tablespoon of Bragg’s.
Our liver and kidneys can become overwhelmed even when we think we are eating healthily. The fact that this happens at all is due to the way our food has been modified and stripped of nutrients. How much fast food we eat also plays a part in how unhealthy our liver and kidneys become. Genetically Modified food is also contributing to making us sick. Our salt has very little usable Iodine these days and most of our Thyroids are Iodine deficient. Don’t trust the usual Thyroid panel your doctor gives you as it doesn’t tell the whole story. If you have the “less used” Thyroid test done, you may find different results.
A long time ago Iodine was sold over-the-counter but it was so potent and caused unintentional poisonings, so was removed from the shelves. Then a couple of years ago I went to a Sprouts Farmer’s Market and found there a diluted tincture of Iodine with Kelp. The suggested dosage was 1 drop in a shot glass of water each day and there were over 14,000 drops in the bottle. This tincture, taken daily, will cleanse the toxins out of the liver and kidneys, while giving the Thyroid the Iodine needed to give your body energy. Energy is at a premium for someone who has Hepatitis C, which drains you of energy the further along it progresses.
To your greatest success!~
