IgA patients are often treated with the misconception that it is an incurable disease! Therefore, Treatments are only symptomatic.

IgA nephropathy.
"When it is evident that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust them; Faced with what is right, leaving it undone shows a lack of courage. "

Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, politician, and philosopher. By Simran Khurana (Updated March 18, 2017)

IgA nephropathy is an autoimmune disease with unique characteristics of - "navigation failure" of antibodies (types A) to the wrong place! But as we know, the body never acts randomly!

 

IgA nephropathy- Short Introduction & Brainstorming.

Introduction.

Link: IgA nephropathy (Wikipedia)

  • The disease's manifestation is the gradual destruction of the kidney glomeruli due to an IgA antibody precipitation inflammatory response.
  • It is a disease that stems from a misidentification of the immune system.
  • Type A antibody is most often activated in moist tissues with mucous membranes typical of several systems, including the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts. Therefore, the disease is believed to break out after a severe infection in mucous tissue.
  • The disease is three times more common in men than in women (unlike most autoimmune diseases) and is most common in relatively young men. (Up to age 40)
  • The disease's main risk in its non-acute form is a gradual deterioration over the years of kidney function to a state of chronic kidney failure.

Brainstorming.

As with other autoimmune diseases, emphasizing the mental dimension is critical. The trigger for the disease is an infection, but the latent cause is unresolved mental trauma. Without releasing the trauma from the subconscious, it is impossible to recover, but only to delay the development of the disease.

  • IgA nephropathy is a disease in which the immune system mistakenly sends antibodies (type A) to the kidneys despite no pathogenic infection. IgA nephropathy patients are treated with the perception that they suffer from an autoimmune disease. Even though they do not have ANA antibodies (similar to other autoimmune diseases), the definition classifies the disease (mistakenly) as incurable, thus perpetuating it.
  • This article presents a different approach to self-healing natural therapies to strengthen the immune system. It will initiate rehabilitation of the damaged kidneys. The cause of the disease is the weakening of the immune system! The sediment of the IgA antibody in the kidneys is not the cause of the disease but only the catalyst that exacerbates the patient's condition. Since IgA nephropathy is a disease that usually breaks out at a relatively young age, particular emphasis must be placed on the mental side, which requires treatment of unresolved traumas from the past.

To reduce IgA antibodies' production, taking special care of the digestive system is essential. It is rich in mucous tissue and is the primary system in our body that is not sterile.

 

IgA nephropathy cannot be cured by drugs of any kind nor by any invasive procedure.

It can be cured by strengthening the immune system naturally. 

IgA nephropathy underlying causes.
  • IgA nephropathy's underlying causes are unhealthy lifestyles combined with anxiety & traumatic Non-resolved events from the past. (The disease usually breaks out after an acute infection of the respiratory or digestive system)
  • Recovery occurs only when all the disease causes (mental & physical) are resolved and eliminated.
Symptomatic treatments usually cannot cure the patient, as they do not eliminate the disease's causes.
  • The treatment of IgA nephropathy is only symptomatic. It is not designed to cure the disease in the first place.
  • Blood pressure-lowering drugs mainly cause damage because they take opposite actions to the body's desires and overload the liver.

Common medications are only symptomatic with many side effects. 

  • High blood pressure medications. 
  • Taking angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) can lower blood pressure and reduce protein loss.
  • Immunosuppressants. (Such as steroids)
  • Statin therapy. (Cholesterol-lowering drugs)
  • Diuretics.
The age factor - An unhealthy physical lifestyle vs. Traumatic non-resolved events from the past.
  • The age factor - As symptoms onset at a younger age (35 years or less), it is more likely that the weight of unresolved mental traumas is higher than the unhealthy lifestyle. The explanation is that the process of cell aging and death is cumulative, while unresolved traumatic events have an immediate and cumulative effect.

 

The liver and kidneys have many metabolic functions in common.

The liver and kidneys have many metabolic functions in common.

Why is it essential to emphasize the close relationship between kidney and liver functions? 

The liver and kidneys fill a long list of critical metabolic processes. A burden on one creates a strain on the other; therefore, it is essential to cleanse both the liver & kidneys.
  • The additional burden on the liver rises steadily and can cause side effects. The compromised liver function does not allow the proper regeneration of damaged kidney cells. 
Traditional Chinese medicine emphasizes the close connection between the kidneys and the liver. 
  • Conventional medicine is essentially non-holistic, as are the organs of two separate systems (urine and digestive) with specialist doctors of different specialties.
  • Despite my severe liver disease, I was admitted to the urology department several times with uncontrollable urinary tract infections. But specialties in medicine have created a narrow vision that does not fit how the body works.
Taking advantage of the liver's remarkable regeneration capabilities is advisable to lower the injured kidneys' burden and initiate kidney cell regeneration.
 

Cleansing the liver, gallbladder, and kidneys is essential to rehabilitate the liver and the kidneys.

The Ultimate Liver Mechanical Detoxification is explained.

  • Fresh juices supply the body with all the needed nutrients such as vitamins, enzymes, electrolytes & antioxidants. It elevates the body's energy and helps the liver to produce more bile.
  • Drinking two cups of freshly squeezed juice once in two days (at least) flushes the kidneys.   
  • Liver flushes (especially when adding apple cider vinegar) can dissolve and remove solidified bile stones resulting from high toxicity levels.
  • Coffee enemas are much more effective when the bile ducts are not blocked. (Because the movement inside the liver is through the bile ducts.)  
  • Coffee enemas have an almost immediate effect on the liver and intestines. The liver's pressure pushes all the toxins (with the stones) out through the duodenum to the intestines by producing more bile. The peristaltic movement is seven times stronger than usual; it pushes everything stuck inside the intestines through the colon.

When the body has low toxicity levels, the body's energy will improve significantly. Therefore the immune system can fight all pathogens that permanently reside in our digestive system much more effectively. Boosting the immune system is mandatory to recover from any acquired chronic diseases.

 

The kidneys can regenerate similarly to other body organs, significantly if they are strengthened by liver function.

The kidneys can regenerate similarly to other body organs, significantly if they are strengthened by liver function.

Why can it be said with certainty that IgA nephropathy is curable?

The fact that conventional medicine cannot cure IgA nephropathy indicates that it is not curable using self-healing medicine.

  • IgA nephropathy is characterized by remissions in which the disease stops or progresses very slowly.
  • Most chronic kidney patients, especially adults, would have needed dialysis if the kidneys could not replenish damaged cells. In reality, most chronic kidney patients do not reach dialysis!
  • Not long ago, scientists of the human brain thought it could not replenish neurons (Neurogenesis), but now it turns out everyone was wrong! This ability exists and is significant. Therefore, one must not raise hands and surrender.
  • Suppose you watch videos on YouTube of patients who have recovered from severe and seemingly impossible-to-recover illnesses (including severe cancer patients). In that case, you will find that these are decisive and determined patients to fight, who have found the way to self-healing. (Without naming it.)
  • I have left with a few percent of liver function due to chronic hepatitis C. Who would look at my gallery with photos of giant worms 15-17 cm long in my digestive and liver system will wonder how I survived the impossible.

Recovery is possible from any health acquired condition; it is just a matter of time, effort, determination, and perseverance. 

 

IgA nephropathy outbreaks underlying mental-energetic causes short analysis, using the Chakras (energy centers) method. 

Link: Chakra (Wikipedia) Note: A simple search will provide more detailed diagrams with elaborated information. (Recommended)  

The seven human Chakras (Energy Centers) and organs represent respective influential emotions. (The emotional settings I brought are slightly broader.)

The seven human Chakras (Energy Centers) and organs represent respective influential emotions. (The emotional settings I brought are slightly broader.)

General & Introduction -  The concept of energy centers. (Chakras)

Only Traumatic Non-resolved mental & spiritual events from our past may block the life-force energy. (Traumatic resolved mental & spiritual events do not block the energy centers.) 

  • These principles come from traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) and Chinese medicine, balancing the body. Western medicine completely ignores the human body's energetic being and misses an opportunity for a deep understanding of chronic disease formation.
  • Diseases break out where life-force energy does not flow smoothly.
  • When discussing stress and anxiety as significant causes of chronic morbidity, we must deepen and label the traumatic emotions to release them consciously.

 

Short analysis concerning IgA nephropathy. 

  • According to the diagram, the kidneys are in the centers (Chakra-1,2.) The corresponding possible traumatic emotions are probably related to Basic trust (fear), Carrer, money mindset and sense of belonging, Sexuality, and Pleasure, Creativity. 
  • Chronic Inflammations of all kinds - Also related to energy centers (Chakras - 3,4). The corresponding possible traumatic emotions are probably associated with Wisdom, Personal Power, and the ability to channel Love, Relationships & Self-acceptance.
  • Only the patient himself can interpret the traumatic events.
  • It is worth mentioning that only Traumatic Non-resolved mental & spiritual events from the past can block the life-force energy. 

The example I have provided is too simplistic but illustrates the idea and encourages self-searching.

  • The symptomatic organ should be adjusted to its energy center; the traumatic emotions that block the specific energy center must be identified and released.
    • You should consider assisting a certified hypnotist if the result cannot be reached through an internal search.
  • Prolonged and severe multi-system diseases need to be restored according to the chronological order of symptoms.
  • In many cases (as in my case), it is a mix of traumatic emotions and several energy centers, making it challenging to locate the energy block source.
  • The right side is the male at the energetic level, while the left is related to the female and the offspring. Therefore trauma with the mother or a brother, for example, will be expressed in various locations!

The severity of symptoms. 

  • The symptoms' intensity is related to the body's general energy (in the central energy channel) and the specific organ or organs' energy level.

 

Self-Healing natural therapies for IgA nephropathy patients.

 

Mental & Spiritual Empowerment- Critical. (Often underestimated) 

Link: Mental and Spiritual Empowerment.

  • Love and emotional support (not just logistical), knowing that having someone with you has immense meaning in these difficult moments. With love and support, Hope strengthens the energy of life and dramatically improves recovery chances.
  • Hypnosis (Authorized only) in severe cases when the onset of CKD is young. Traumatic events are often kept subconscious and complex to locate on our own. Hypnotherapy requires patient collaboration. (I needed many hypnosis-like sessions. )
  • Releasing tension and spiritual calm. (Such as yoga, meditation, and Tai Chi )
  • Acupuncture. Excellent benefits without any side effects. Acupuncture does begin as a physical act, but it is essentially an energetic action aimed at opening energetic blockages along the body's energy channels. (Meridians) Successful acupuncture can be painful; the pain usually indicates effective treatment. (The pain stems from energy flow in a blocked life-force energy channel!)

 

Lifestyle & Eating habits.

  • Goodnight's sleep is imperative to achieve a successful alcohol withdrawal. Daytime rest has no similar effect; sleep hours cannot be completed during the day.
  • Use of drugs and supplements. All drugs (and sometimes some supplements) harm the immune system. Do not expect the support of doctors to reduce medication.
  • Eating habits - Do not eat late at night. Eat comfortably and well-chewed. Late-night eating takes essential resources from the immune system to the digestive system.
  • Diet sugar-free and soft drinks - soft drinks and diet drinks harm many vital organs and damage the immune system.
  • Food composition - It is highly advisable not to combine high doses of carbohydrates with animal protein; they substantially affect insulin resistance. Animal proteins should be eaten with plant foods containing dietary fiber. It is desirable to pour natural oil on carbohydrates (preferably with a low glycemic index); it helps emulsify the digestive system.
  • Sex with deep feelings can charge the life-force energy.
  • Controlled Solar-baths. (Essential for proper physiology and charges the life-force energy.) Fear of contracting skin cancer and working indoors for many hours has created a situation where many people, even in sunny countries, are deficient in vitamin D. The sun soothes the mind and improves the mood! 

 

Nutritional recommendations for IgA nephropathy (IgAN) patients.

Recommended link: "The balanced, varied diet" is the best diet for maintaining good health and optimal weight.

Very few IgAN patients have a proper diet & eating habits, even though many believe they are eating healthy!

Introduction.

  • Fats, protein, carbohydrates & natural sugars are needed; it is wrong to deny completely one of the macronutrients.
  • The need for various foods (mainly from plants) allows the body to get all the nutrients (enzymes, minerals, electrolytes, dietary fiber, antioxidants) through the food and drinks. High-quality and varied foods, together with sun-controlled exposure, almost eliminate the need for sometimes harmful supplements and absorb less than quality food.

IgA nephropathy (IgAN) patients may suffer from severe farting.

  • Imbalances in intestinal flora often manifested themselves in farting. Farting during the recovery period is often a positive sign! (Contrary to what is commonly thought) they reflect attempts by the good bacteria to control the parasites. (Dead parasites release gas.)
  • Taking control of the good bacteria over the parasites is usually accompanied by much farting. This process can take several months. No need to panic and see the recommended diet as if it failed. On the contrary!

 

Recommended food:

  1. Start your morning by drinking one cup of squeezed lemon juice mixed with lukewarm water. (It is even better if you add one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar + one tablespoon of olive oil.)
  2. Vegetables, seeds, sprouts, roots, nuts, legumes, beans, lentils, mushrooms, fruits, and berries.   
  3. Moist low-medium glycemic index starches such as rice, sweet potato, taro root, and spelled quinoa. (You better add a teaspoon of coconut oil, Ghee purified butter, or other natural oils for better absorption.)
  4. Organic range-free eggs (especially the egg yolk) are excellent emulsifiers due to their high lecithin content. (Good quality egg yolk has an orange color.)
    1. Egg yolk is rich in vitamin D3.
  5. Eat wild deep-sea fish 2-to 3  a week. (They are less contaminated and also have a high omega-three content.)
    • Fish is easy to digest and does not create a very acidic environment in the intestines.
  6. Berries are among the most potent antioxidants – combined with any fruit, goat yogurt, cinnamon, and walnuts. (Yogurt, like all probiotics, may cause gas bloating. It is usually a good sign.)
  7. The liver, in particular, benefits from all-natural bitter foods. (Such as grapefruit and dark chocolate.)
  8. Dietary fiber (found only in plant-based diets) is essential for gut recovery. It might cause a reaction like gas bloating. (Fiber helps to feed the good bacteria.)
  9. Fermented products with natural live bacteria such as goat yogurt or natural kombucha are essential for good health.
  10. Consuming high-quality fats like Olive oil, flaxseed oil, hemp oil, Ghee (purified butter), and coconut oil, together with fiber, helps lubricate the lining of the intestinal walls. It is essential to replenish the good bacteria and help regenerate intestinal wall tissue.
  11. Regular eating of bone marrow (possible in soup) is especially recommended.
  12. Consuming Iodine regularly (for proper thyroid function) is essential. (The easiest way is by consuming Himalayan pink salt.)
  13. It is recommended to consume sulfur foods such as avocado, onion, garlic, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale to strengthen the immune system.

Which bread is the healthiest? (Sprouted bread, rye, spelled, or whole flour sourdough bread.) 

  • Healthy bread is dense and tends to be massive. (Especially bread made without yeast.)
  • Bread with low gluten is best. Most healthy bread has low gluten. (Although not zero percent gluten)
  • There are many bread recipes. Most people do not bake their bread. Buying bread from a reliable source is essential. The best are small specialized bakeries that deliver organic whole grain sourdough bread.
  • Sprouted bread is most recommended for everyone. Sprouting releases enzymes that break the grain shell. Sprouted bread has low gluten and is much easier to digest because enzymes start breaking the grain shell. (which is hard to digest)
  • Low-calorie bread is less dense and weighs less. Heavy bread makes you feel full faster.

Minimize eating white flour & yeast bread; it disturbs the gut flora balance.

 

Recommended beverages:

  • Water, tea (without sugar or milk), black coffee (without sugar or milk), and freshly squeezed juice. (Not too sweet.)
    • Drinking fresh juice may cause gas bloating. It is inevitable and part of the recovery process.

Due to intestinal wall damage, appropriate discipline in eating and drinking is required. 

  • Until there is a significant improvement in symptoms, the list of food and beverages not recommended is quite long, but that should not surprise anyone.
  • Eating mainly cooked, soft, warm, and moist food is recommended(Easier to digest)
  • The additional nutrients that the body needs for recovery will come from drinking natural fresh-squeezed juices.

 

Not recommended Food & Beverages - Minimize consumption.

  • All Processed food, smoked food, preservatives, and canned food. (Huge category.)
  • Soft drinks of all kinds, including diet beverages. 
  • Plain sugars and high glycemic starches. (Such as white flour products, potatoes, white bread, biscuits, cakes, etc.)
  • Eating high doses of sweet fruits. (Especially grapes and watermelon containing mainly glucose.) Sugars can create an imbalance in gut flora.   
  • Trans-fats (found in many industrialized products) like Margarine are very harmful.
  • Yeast bread. (Sourdough bread is much better.)
  • Dairy products are unsuitable for Fibromyalgia patients as they are loaded with sugar (lactose) and too many proteins. Besides, they create an acidic environment in the intestines.
    • Goat's milk or yogurt is much better. (Limited quantities.)
  • High gluten content products. (Gluten protein is found in most cereals. Gluten tends to adhere to intestinal walls and will probably aggravate symptoms.)
  • Reduce meat & poultry consumption by 50% or more. (Meat & poultry are hard to digest; they create a high acidity environment in the intestines.)
  • Leafy greens. (Until significant relief in symptoms. They tend to stick to the inflamed intestinal walls.)
  • Spicy hot foods are usually beneficial, but they may cause symptoms to worsen. (Due to the Herxheimer effect, dead pathogens release toxins & gas.)
  • Eating large amounts of carbohydrates and animal proteins are not recommended. (Especially meat or dairy products with potatoes or other high glycemic starches.)

 

Eating habits.

  • Try to minimize eating away from home, preferably taking home food to work and not buying outside.
  • Chew well, take a break, and eat comfortably.
  • Do not eat late at night.
  • Intermittent fasting (not with zero calories) has many benefits.
  • Fresh vegetables should be sprinkled with olive oil or other oils such as hemp or flaxseed.
  • You should add a little fat with a higher melting temperature, such as coconut oil or Ghee butter, boiled or baked starches, or vegetables. (Although they are saturated fats.)
  • Especially after a meal that includes animal protein (more difficult to digest), taking a short 20-30 minute walk at moderate speed is recommended. Walking helps the digestive processes.

We eat with all senses; it is desirable to fill the plate with various vegetables with oils & spices. (Including aromatic salt.)

 

Recommended additional physical therapies.

 

Summary, conclusions, and recommendations. 

To reduce IgA antibodies' production, taking special care of the digestive system is essential. It is rich in mucous tissue and is the primary system in our body that is not sterile. It is advisable to take advantage of the liver's remarkable regeneration capabilities, lower the burden on the injured kidneys, and initiate kidney cell regeneration.

If you seek doctors' advice, do not expect your doctor's support for self-healing medicine.

Link: Conventional Modern Medicine vs. Self-Healing (Alternative) Medicine.

Recommends everyone to delve into the principles of self-healing before deciding. And the differences between conventional medicine and self-healing medicine.

  • Improved liver blood flow and bile fluids, through naturally squeezed juices, coffee enemas, liver, and gallbladder flushes, impact the immune system and the liver kidneys.
  • Combined with the proper habits and appropriate and supportive diet, far-reaching results can be achieved, and even the condition of patients who need dialysis can be restored.
  • The emotional-mental side has tremendous significance in every CKD recovery.

IgA nephropathy is not an incurable disease! Even in advanced stages.

  • It is worth internalizing - there is no such thing as an incurable disease. (Except for genetic diseases.)
  • Remissions often characterize IgA nephropathy. They are not accidental; they result from an increase in the body's life-force energy level.
  • For those ready to embark on the inner journey of self-healing - full recovery is guaranteed. (The process can be lengthy, but the feeling of healing is already felt in the early stages.) 

IgA nephropathy underlying causes.

  • IgA nephropathy's underlying causes are unhealthy lifestyles combined with anxiety & traumatic Non-resolved events from the past. (The disease usually breaks out after an acute infection of the respiratory or digestive system)
  • Recovery occurs only when all the disease causes (mental & physical) are resolved and eliminated.
  • Symptomatic treatments usually cannot cure the patient, as they do not eliminate the disease's causes.

The age factor - An unhealthy physical lifestyle vs. Traumatic non-resolved events from the past.

  • The age factor - As symptoms onset at a younger age (35 years or less), it is more likely that the weight of unresolved mental traumas is higher than the unhealthy lifestyle. The explanation is that the process of cell aging and death is cumulative, while unresolved traumatic events have an immediate and cumulative effect.

Prolonged use of medications & Supplements is harmful. (Including herbal supplements.)

  • Prolonged use of most drugs, especially non-herbal drugs, has side effects (sometimes intolerable) and cumulative damage to the body that comes out of balance.
  • A balanced and appropriate diet with naturally fermented products (or live probiotics) and controlled exposure to the sun are recommended to minimize dietary supplements for those who are not vegan.

Try to minimize or avoid.

  • High blood pressure medications, Taking angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), can lower your blood pressure and reduce protein loss; immunosuppressants (Such as steroids), Statin therapy (Cholesterol-lowering drugs), Diuretics.

Economic aspects.

  • The economic burden of doctors, drugs, and treatments is sometimes very high. (In my case, the expenditure was exceptionally high.)
  • Despite the enormous expenditure on food and juices, the savings on medicines and doctors, not to mention the suffering and low quality of life, invest in self-healing, primarily economic, in the long run.

Self-healing is like "Performing miracles." Every human being has this capability. It just needs to be revealed.

Frequently asked questions and answers:
Why is IgA nephropathy different from other autoimmune diseases?
IgA nephropathy is an autoimmune disease with unique characteristics of - "navigation failure" of antibodies (types A) to the wrong place!
What is the main risk of patients in IgA nephropathy?
When the condition of the kidneys gradually deteriorates, there is a danger of kidney failure that requires dialysis or a kidney transplant.
Is it possible to recover from IgA nephropathy by medicinal means?
Medicines treat the multiple symptoms of the disease and not the causes of the disease! The way to recovery is through the constant strengthening of the immune system.
Why is it advisable to emphasize the mental dimension in IgA nephropathy (IgAN)?
Because the disease most often breaks out in young people (especially men) at young ages, there is no far-reaching effect of diet and lifestyle.
It is worth paying attention to economic and existential crises when it comes to a chronic disease of the kidneys.
The kidneys are the first damaged due to unresolved mental traumas. The crises are most often about existential or economic fear. It is essential to emphasize that unresolved trauma is from the perspective of the period in which it occurred.
Untreated mental dimension of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) The patient may come to dialysis due to ongoing destruction of the kidneys.
Drug therapy is only supportive therapy that does not lead to the patient's recovery. Without treatment of the mental-energetic dimension, the disease can worsen to renal failure.
