my kidneys have always been marginal. i have had UT and kidney infestions since a teen. about ten years ago i did a course of the barefoot herbalists kidney cleanse formula and it cleared up a raging case of protenuria and it has never returned.
i have also been taking KI by the gram for years. my kidneys have never been better. i can take lots of KCl as well with no problem.
let me tell you something. people lie. they lie the most when their living depends on it. drs lie the most because they are wrong the most and have the most to lose. stay away.
i say that because ALL of the negative crap about iodine comes from them. its widespread use would destroy their living and they know it. in more ignorant times they used KI in doses up to 10 grams at once! to cure all sorts of maladies. those days are gone because KI cant be patented. and yet, it worked so well for so long that drs got their reputations and respect back using it. now they hide behind a false facade of science and reason but are actually greedy sadists with one ultimate goal - more disease resulting in early death. hear me now and believe me later.
they know exactly what they are doing. i got out of the hospital after a heart attack and bypass and they told me to avoid salt - both sodium and potassium chloride. instead there are five medications they want me eating. but while in the hospital they played with my halogens like an angel on a harp. i had an IV the whole time giving me sodium and glucose (big bad salt and sugar directly into my veins) and then come around and check my blood and decide i need KCl and give me a big fat shot of that in my veins.
now as a layman i was horrified at the intravenous injection of potassium chloride when i knew that was the chemical used as the coup de grace in lethal injection. i said as much and the staffer told me that was a much bigger shot to make it lethal.
they had two shots for KCl. one was to balance my K/Na ratio. the other was called a water shot. they just shot me up with potassium chloride and my kidneys would dump about two liters in less than thirty minutes.
do you hear what i am telling you? these monsters know you are potassium deficient. they tell you to eat a low salt diet in order to hide this fact. they want to be the only ones to administer it, though. when youre sick. so you can think they made you well. but you are just deficient in salt. nothing more and nothing less than fraud on the patient/consumer of the expensive thin air of insurance. scammed to the max and cured with cheap salt and charged thousands and thousands of dollars.
