Herbs such as Agathosma betulina (Buchu) possess diuretic properties and acts
as urinary antiseptic while Berberis vulgaris (Barberry) improves immune
functioning and is excellent for kidney stones, gallbladder problems and an
enlarged spleen. Other herbal ingredients that are extremely beneficial for
kidney health include Polygonum multiflorum, Schizandra chinensis and Trigonella
foenum-graecum.

Drink three glasses of unsweetened cranberry juice every day. It aids in
destroying harmful bacteria and makes your urine more acidic

Wheatgrass

Note:

(basically wheatgrass can be very beneficial , but and it’s a big but, if we are talking about renal failure  it is essential to do potassium tests to make sure to not overdose on potassium.
failure to do so can lead to a heart attack.)
On the other hand if it is not failure but kidney disease then potassium is beneficial.

Wheatgrass brings back normal life of a liver, kidney disease patient

Is Wheatgrass Good to People with Kidney Disease?

http://kidneycntreatment.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/is-wheatgrass-help-renal-failure.html

The malfunctioned kidneys fail to filter potassium from blood, thus resulting
in hyperkalemia. Wheatgrass is high in potassium, so the patients should advert
consuming it for high serum potassium can cause irregular heart beat and even
death.

http://www.kidneyfailureweb.com/kidney-failure-diet/419.html

Wheat grass is very nutritious and it contains a variety of vitamins and minerals including potassium. Since your mother has no kidney function and she has to rely on dialysis to remove excess water and electrolytes in her body, she need to limit potassium intake or it can cause life-threatening consequence to her.

But that does not mean she should totally avoid wheat grass. Check her blood potassium level and have wheat grass within the healthy and safe dose is recommended for your mother.

Wheatgrass Testimonials

Note:

Some people have claimed that wheatgrass has reversed kidney failure even at chronic stages.
The same goes for raw food.
It may be the Chlorophyll and or the enzymes that is causing this benefit.
It is likely that there is a better source for this with lower potassium content

This patient was on dialysis for  every 15 days as his kidneys were weakened. He also suffered from a heart  attack during this period. So the dialysis had to be stopped although the  patient could not survive without it. This patient’ son is a doctor himself. He  thought of trying Wheat Grass Therapy along with naturopathy diet consisting of  juices.
Since the kidneys were weak, the  doctor’s son was against taking the liquid diet. But juices had to be given as  per naturopathy along with Wheat Grass Juice. The patient could pass urine  about 500 ml to 600 ml.( A normal healthy person should pass urine about 2  liter’s. daily.)So the daily urine was measured which kept on increasing after  5 to 6 days. On the 12th day the patient could pass urine up to 2  liter’s as the kidney’s started to function. The patient was kept on Wheat  Grass Therapy for further 3 months. The kidney’s started to function normally  and dialysis was not needed later. – See more at: http://www.girmeswheatgrass.com/success-stories.html#sthash.YWkoXhRc.dpuf

1986, I was told I have kidney failure, of which I was put             on dialysis in 1995, and 1997 I received a kidney transplant. At             one time, I took up to 28 pills a day, at a cost of over $2,500.00             per month.
Just imagine if you have no insurance and have to maintain             a kidney transplant?  Dialysis cost over $400.00 per day, transplant             cost $140,000.00, pills cost over $2,500.00 per month, total over             $540,000.00 over a 6 years period. Think about that. Ever since I             had my kidney transplant, my blood sugar averages about 200 to150             daily. Always fluctuating. On May 3rd I attended a seminar at Living             Food Institute, and I was convinced that’s the way to go. From             May first to may 5th, my blood sugar runs between 194 and 148. I             have been taking 75 units of insulin each day. Monday may 5th, I             started the class. That day my blood sugar average 108.  I took             75 units of insulin that morning. Day 2 I took 30 units of insulin,             that day my blood sugar average 51. Day 3 I took 20 units of insulin,             that day my blood sugar average 87. Can you see what Living Foods             Institute can do for you?        Day 4 I took 10 units of insulin, my blood sugar average 50.             Day 5 I took 10 units of insulin, my blood sugar average 96. Day             6 I took 10 units of insulin, my blood sugar average 99. Day 7 I             took 10 units of insulin, my blood sugar average 142. Day 8 I took             15 units of insulin, my blood sugar average 96. In 7 days Living             Foods has cut my insulin intake by over 62%. Is this a MIRACLE or             what?

I am now insulin free and have been since completing the 10-Day
