Nephritis is also known as the inflammation of the kidneys. It can be both chronic as well as acute and is accompanied by pain in the kidneys, dull pain in the back, presence of blood in the urine, dropsy, rise in blood pressure, frequent urination and uremia.

The term Nephritis is used to denote a serious disorder of the kidneys which may be acute or chronic in nature. It is characterized by inflammation of the kidneys. This disease is more common during childhood and younger ages of life. If not treated properly in the initial stages, Nephritis may become more worse. When this disease becomes chronic in nature, the patient may feel a little better but not too well.

The major symptoms of acute Nephritis are pain in the kidneys which may extend down to the ureter, mild backpain, fever and urine may become scanty and highly colored. Many times urine may also contain blood and casts containing dumps of white and red cells which may be a result of damaged kidneys. Other symptoms may include swelling of the ankles and feet and puffiness of the face.

When this disease progresses to a chronic stage, large amounts of albumin is passed through urine. The patient may also suffer from frequent urination, high blood pressure and he may also develop uremia.

The main causes of Nephritis are use of suppressive drugs for former diseases, excessive alcohol consumption, faulty style of living and wrong dietary habits and habitual use of chemical substances for the treatment of indigestion and other disorders of the stomach. Excessive use of painkillers and aspirin may also lead to Nephritis. Many times this disease may also follow an attack of scarlet fever or throat infection. In many cases, deficiency of essential vitamins and trace minerals may be a cause of Nephritis.

The treatment for acute Nephritis should first commence by putting the patient on a short juice fasting for about nine days till the acute symptoms subside.  Juices of vegetables such as cucumber, carrot and celery should be used for this purpose. A warm water enema should be administered daily during this period for cleansing the bowels.

The patient may thereafter switch to an all fruit diet after the juice fast. During this period fresh juicy fruits such as apples, oranges, grapes, peaches, pears and pineapple may be taken at an interval of five hours throughout the day. The patient may adopt a diet of raw goat’s milk and fruits after the all fruit diet for further six days. After this the patient may gradually embark upon a well balanced diet with more emphasis on raw and cooked vegetables and fresh fruits.

In case of chronic Nephritis, the treatment should commence by putting the patient on a short juice fast for about four days. The patient may thereafter adopt a restricted diet for about eight days. In this regimen raw vegetable salad available in the season may be taken during lunch and dinner may consist of one or two steamed vegetables and a few nuts. The patient may gradually embark upon a well balanced diet with more emphasis on fruits and vegetables.

These short juice fasts, followed by a restricted diet may be repeated at an interval of two months if there is improvement in the condition.

Foods such as tea, coffee, white sugar, white flour products, cakes, puddings, pastries, fleshy foods, fried foods, condiments, sauces and pickles should be totally avoided by the patient suffering from Nephritis. He should also avoid vegetables such as rhubarb and spinach containing large amounts of oxalic acid. Cocoa and chocolate also contain oxalic acid and so they should also be avoided. Daily intake of salt should also be eliminated from diet. It is necessary to take frequent small meals instead of few large ones. The patient should also give up smoking and drinking completely if it is habitual.

Natural cure for Nephritis:

The juices of carrot, celery and cucumber are highly beneficial for treating nephritis. Fruits such as apples, grapes, oranges, pears, peaches and apples are also recommended for treating this condition.

All foods containing oxalic acid such as spinach, rhubarb, chocolates and cocoa should be eliminated from the diet of an individual suffering from kidney inflammation.

Wild Yam root is an excellent natural remedy for treating Nephritis. Using wild yam root in the form of dietary supplement helps combat this condition effectively.

Avocados are an excellent natural remedy for treating this condition. Eat one avocado on a daily basis for about a month to cure this problem completely.

Take 1 glass of carrot juice and add 1 tsp honey and 1 tsp fresh lime juice to it. Take this daily on an empty stomach for best results.

Bananas are low in protein and salt content and high in carbohydrates. This makes them an ideal choice for patients suffering from Nephritis. It is recommended to take a diet comprising only of bananas for 8-9 days in order to cure this condition.

If you happen to be suffering from kidney inflammation, you must avoid smoking, intake of alcohol, white bread, tea, coffee, fried foods, sugar cakes, pastries, meat products, pickles, condiments and syrups.

Hot Epsom Salt baths improve the overall functioning of the kidneys and should be taken every alternate day for combating Nephritis.

carrots-4The carrot is an excellent vegetable as it has both nutritional and medicinal values which are essential for our optimum health.

The best thing of carrot is that it is easily assimilated by our body. Chinese practitioners said that carrot tastes sweet, and it is good for the health of spleen and stomach. It is also believed to improve impotence (lower sexual drive), sexual dysfunction, night blindness, long term cough (or call hundred days cough in Chinese medical prescription) besides strengthening kidney and eliminating excessive wind and cold in our body.

Carrot has proved its outstanding role in anti-cancer effect. The research revealed that people with lack of beta-carotene were more likely to have 2 times higher risk of cancer than normal people. It is wiser to eat an appropriate amount of carrot per day to prevent cancer. This is because beta-carotene in the carrot can be easily changed by our body into vitamin A, which is essential for healthy cell growth, strong immune system and protection against mascular degeneration (AMD).

The research also found that carrot contains bulk of folic acid, a group of vitamin B, which has good effect to fight against free radicals (substances that cause cancer) in our body. The lignin found in carrot too, helps to strengthen our immune system to fight against cancerous cells. Potash succinate, its anti hypertensive drug properties may also help to reduce the blood pressure. Therefore, it is also regarded as a good diet for hypertension’s patient.

As carrot is fat-soluble substance, its nutrition is absorbed better with the presence of oil. Therefore, it is better to dip one drop of olive oil into a glass of carrot juice so that our body can effectively absorbed its nutrition.

Carrots like other foods do contain sugar which may give rise to the blood sugar. However, if carrots are consumed in an appropriate amount they won’t give rise to an extreme blood sugar rise among people with blood sugar problems (both diabetic and hypoglycaemic). 8-ounce glasses of carrot juice per day have been seen as a successful cure among the patients who are terminally ill cancer. Your body appears to handling well with the natural occurring sugars found in carrot juice. There are still no scientific evidences supporting that appropriate consumption of carrot juice can cause negative impact to your body.  Nevertheless, I’d advise diabetic and hypoglycaemic to limit the intake of carrots because excessive intake of carrots may be detrimental to your health or may worsen your existing health condition.

Now, you may ask me, “ How much carrot juice should I take, chan?” It’s hardly to give you an accurate answer here since the intake of carrot juice  varies among the individuals. It’s always wiser to consult your doctor for any dieting alteration, particularly among the patients, those who’re engaging with diseases or those with serious health or physical problems. Basically, for a healthy person, it’s recommended to take two to three 8-ounce glasses of carrot juice daily.

Warning!

It’s very important to take note that carrots should not be taken together with wine, beer, or any alcoholic drinks. The reason is that the combination of both will cause substantial amount of alcohol and carotene entering your body at the same time, which will later lead to the production of toxins in your liver. When this situation occurs, you’re more likely to have liver disease. Similarly, carrots cannot be taken with black fungus at a time as the combination of both will cause dermatitis (inflammation of the skin). The intake of 500g carrots with any sea foods may also cause arsenic poisoning.

Although carotenoids found in carrots are beneficial to baby, attention should be paid for the volume of the intake. It’s always better to consult a registered doctor or dietician on the issue of how much carrot juice should be given to your child based upon their existing health condition. Excessive consumption of carotene (either from carrots or tomatoes) can cause hyperlipidemia, which can lead to orange-colored skin on the face and hands. Other symptoms which are observed among your child include loss of appetite, mental instability, anxiety, and sleep disorder accompanied by crying, screaming, nightmare and murmuring throughout the night.

We always think that goiter (a swelling in the thyroid gland, which can lead to a swelling of the neck or larynx) is caused by a deficiency of iodine. But do you know that the combination of carrots and oranges can also indulge or cause the development of goiter? Many clinical experimentations have shown that after entering your body, carrots (a type of cruciferous vegetables, which refers to edible plants in the family of Brassicaceae) can quickly produce a substance called Thiocyanate (common compounds that include the colorless salts potassium thiocyanate and sodium thiocyanate), and this thiocyanate will soon undergo a procedure of metabolism to produce an anti-thyroid substance called thiocyanate acid. The question on how much this so-called substance is produced is directly proportional to the volume of the intake of the carrots. When fruits such as oranges, pears, apples, or grapes are taken immediately or are combined with carrots at a time, the flavonoids from these fruits will be decomposed by the intestinal bacteria into hydroxyl benzoic acid (a crystalline derivative of benzoic acid) and ferulic acid (an organic compound that is an abundant phenolic phytochemical found in plant cell walls). Both acids are found to reinforce thiocyanate acid to inhibit the functionality of thyroid gland which might have contributed to a consequence of goiter. Therefore, you’re encouraged not to drink juices of/ eat oranges, apples or grapes straight away after the consumption of carrots.

Final Remark:

Again, it’s very important to take note that  carrot should not be taken together with an orange. This is because Thiocyanate compound in carrot will react chemically with substances in orange which can cause goiter (the enlargement of the thyroid). Similarly, carrot cannot be taken together with polygonum multiflorum (Chinese knotweed or flowery) and ginseng.
