New Alternative Treatments For Kidney Problems

There’s something you should know about chronic kidney disease. Most doctors will tell you there is no alternative treatments for kidney problems besides costly dialysis or a transplant to deal with impaired renal function. What Is Kidney Failure? Kidney dialysis is a treatment that uses a special machine to filter harmful wastes, salt and excess from your blood. But there is another option. It’s called stem cell biotherapy, and it offers new hope to those with this life-threatening disease. You may think your kidneys are just fine and you have nothing to worry about. But consider this… What Causes Kidney Failure? High blood pressure is the most common cause of kidney failure. And that’s not the only risk factor for chronic kidney disease. There’s also high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity and turning 65 years old. Who’s Affected by Chronic Kidney Disease? In fact, chronic kidney disease affects one in seven adult Americans.1 Conventional advice says the only options are dialysis or a transplant. But I help my patients avoid and treat kidney disease in a much more natural fashion. How Does Dialysis Work? Dialysis requires you to be hooked up to a machine three times a week for four hours per session. The annual cost for this treatment is about $80,000 per patient and rising. The total amount of private and public funds spent on the procedure is staggering. A University of Virginia study found that Medicare alone spends $50 billio...

Authors: Tian S, Yan Y, Qi X, Li X, Li Z Abstract BACKGROUND Rheumatoid arthritis model (CIA) rats were treated by tail vein injection of IL-10-modified bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) to investigate its feasibility and intrinsic molecular mechanism. MATERIAL AND METHODS The CIA rat model was established by induction type II collagen, and IL-10-modified BMSCs was established by transfecting BMSCs with adenovirus. IL-10-modified BMSCs were used to treat the CIA rats. The therapeutic effect was evaluated by measuring the changes in body weight, ankle swelling, and forced swimming time, as well as observati...

The currently available Spirulina products in the market are mainly hot and spray-dried and their nutritional values are significantly compromised due to degradation of the heat-sensitive bioactive components.Scope and approachThis commentary provides a crit...

The purpose of this study was to encapsulate the orange peel oil containing 92% limonene inside the amylose nanostructures via the combination of mechanical (sonication) and thermal means. Later, the stability and...

The definition of intentional homicide appears to be quite straightforward, as a homicide occurs when one person’s cause ...

by Arthur Caplan, Ph.D. Researchers at Yale University recently reported an experiment in which they used an experimental chemical solution to create electrical activity in the cells of pig brains, brains obtained from a slaughterhouse four hours after the death of the animals from decapitation (NY Times ‘Partly Alive’: Scientists Revive Cells in Brains From Dead Pigs, 4/17,19).  These results led to all manner of comments in this story, many from bioethicists and in stories elsewhere.  Commentators suggested that the pigs’ brains were somehow made partly alive, that concerns about consciousness...
