  • I've once heard about a qi gong drill where they massage the kidneys to loose toxines, but just not getting toxines in there might be smarter.

  • hey.. can u do a video about yeast. I've been having alot of nutritional yeast lately and my sister told me that her friend told her that if u have a lot of yeast, u can get a yeast infection? Is this true Dr Gregg, im scared

  • Wow this is so far of facts I don't understand why the even have facts in its title. This has all been disproven and misrepresented data in the studies.

  • Kidney disease? Stop drinking alcohol,start drinking distilled water.If your urine does not look like water,or slightly yellow,you are at risk. Dilute your urine toxins by drinking plenty of water.

  • Excellent video!  However, for meat eaters this truth will be quickly dismissed.  IF they are lucky they will listen once in their lives when a heart attack knocks the truth into them.  IF, because they will likely die and not get another chance.

  • Dr G. Thanks so much for all you do! I very recently got your book and just now heard about your app. I'm on it!

  • There are sulfur rich AA's in plant proteins too. For example sesame seeds and brazil nuts have more methionine than chicken, fish, and beef. Also there is much research for sulfur containing AA's protect against liver damage, toxicity, the greying of hair, and protection from the effects of stress. Why do you only show research that confirms your confirmation bias?

  • Thank you Dr. Greger for your pregnancy videos. I am a birth support worker and was curious about the Brewer's diet and the increase of salt and protein to protect against pre-eclampsia? It's highly suggested that increasing salt and protein (especially animal products) will reduce the chance of developing pre-eclampsia. Thank you for your time.

  • well it seems that paleo diet promoter Mark Sisson and Loren Cordain where already here to thumb down this video…..now the are very pissed off…lol

  • +NutritionFacts.org I suffer from CKD, currently under transplant since 5 years ago. ny new studies about reversing damage to the kidney?

  • I literally sat down with my evening snack of 2 cups apples and an ounce of ground flax as this video started playing:) I breathed a sigh of relief; a healthy diet is the best health insurance there is.

  • Dr. G
    I have been vegan for last 15 years.
    My urine ph continues to remain between 5 -7.
    does alcohol have effect on urine ph.

  • my paleo mates are convinced grains and gluten cause kidney failure. its a bit hard to work out who to believe these days.

  • After being vegan for almost 2 years, my pre diabetes diagnosis has been long gone, hurray! I have suffered from renal colic for 16 years, and have been hospitalized due to the blinding pain. Since I started a vegan diet those terrifying pains are gone, yet every now and then I feel a slight discomfort. I know I need to increase my water consumption, but besides that, are there any foods that need to be controlled? My family and I eat a whole foods diet, I have never purchased faux meat. I make my own veggie and bean burgers, wheat meat, you name it… How long does it take for the renal system to revert, to some degree, to a healthier state? Thank you in advance for any help on this topic! Blessings…

  • At 2:53 there is a chart describing different foods acid load to the kidneys.
    Does anyone know where nuts and seeds lie on that chart?

  • so whats the difference between vegetarian diet and vegan diet? vegetarians eat eggs and milk and its acid forming right? so shouldnt vegan diet be the best?

  • Very misleading. Ammonia is highly toxic to the body and so it can also be viewed that the carbonic acid formed in the body helps to neutralize the toxic ammonia. in the process an acid neutralizing bicarbonate is produced.

    Furthermore, the ammonia or ammonium being discussed as being produced is produced by the kidneys is from the amino acid glutamine of which meats are a great source.

    The fact is that ALL FOODS metabolize in to acids so according to his hypothesis eating any food would strain the kidneys.
