The renal function can be impaired because of bromine load to begin with, so watch for detox symptoms. Kidney pain on the iodine, Fx, muscles that complain hard.
kidneys love protien and peace of mind, do try to avoid negative folk/violence.
There was a post from a nutritionalist about the nutritional needs of the kidneys- among what I can remember, it's Vitamin C, B1, silica, calcium, potassium, salt (magnesium can be included in here), and an imbalance in one of the nutrients can trigger pain and poor filtering. His article explained his experience with patients and balancing out the nutrients, that often (I believe it was the right kidney) pain on the right side is associated with the filtering of protiens associated with meat, and the left side was other food matter (with a reversal of sides depending upon which hand is dominant on the patient).
If I track down that site I'll try to link to it. If anyone else finds it, please add a reply!
Viral load can be a hit on the kidneys too, so ALA may be of interest to intensify the effect of your vitamin C, it helps get the liver to dump bad halides.
Uhm.. all the opinions expressed about docs here-
The educational model for accepted doctors really sucks (way outdated and skewed 'twards PharmaCon).
Still, you do met doctors who read outside the lines. Thank God for the good ones.
