  1. Lovely video content! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you thought about – Bonackson Wandalyn Genie (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a great one off product for avoiding dialysis and improve kidney health without the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my m8 after a lifetime of fighting got excellent success with it.

  2. Question for responders. Did your doctors educate you on what was happening to your kidneys or do you feel, like I do, that my doctors purposely didn't efucate me or help me to prevent or at least try to prevent my kidneys from getting worse? I believe my kidneys started to fail because of medications and once they started to be damaged, it was my diet making it worsen quicker. Had I been educated I suspect I could have prevented my kidneys from getting worse. One more thing, has anyone heard about natural methods for helping the kidneys? Like drinking baking soda in water with lemon or honey.

  3. I want to grow a garden… I feel like everything from pain medication to weight supplements and don't talk about the meat … I feel like they are trying to get everyone sick… If not this… It would be that.

  5. Definitely, a must see for those on dialysis, or loved ones on a low sodium diet.
