Tamiflu-Renal Impairment

After many years of issues and then digging.  I discovered this to be the beginning of my Renal Impairment.

 

TAMIFLU Partial Insert Below from the FDA

Data are available on plasma concentrations of oseltamivir carboxylate following various dosing schedules in
patients with renal impairment [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Treatment of Influenza
Dose adjustment is recommended for adult patients with creatinine clearance between 10 and 30 mL/min
receiving TAMIFLU for the treatment of influenza. In these patients it is recommended that the dose be reduced
to 75 mg of TAMIFLU once daily for 5 days. No recommended dosing regimens are available for patients with
end-stage renal disease undergoing routine hemodialysis or continuous peritoneal dialysis treatment.
Prophylaxis of Influenza
For the prophylaxis of influenza, dose adjustment is recommended for adult patients with creatinine clearance
between 10 and 30 mL/min receiving TAMIFLU. In these patients it is recommended that the dose be reduced
to 75 mg of TAMIFLU every other day or 30 mg TAMIFLU every day. No recommended dosing regimens are
available for patients undergoing routine hemodialysis and continuous peritoneal dialysis treatment with endstage

renal disease.

What about INFECTIONS?

Tamiflu-Renal ImpairmentSo a lot has happened since my journey of healing has begun.  This year I had home birth with baby number 5, began small homesteading projects, and helped the kids begin a small family business, Watts Kids Market, selling mild beneficial goat milk soap and herbal salves that have helped me along this journey.

I had a few complications while pregnant, and postpartum and here is my summary for getting through my infections SAFELY EVEN WHILE PREGNANT…

I had kidney stones at 15 weeks pregnant, after picking apricots, pulling weeds, and transplanting strawberries in July.  And discovered what may have been the trigger, antibiotic use several years ago (see #8 in linked article).  IN MY CASE ANTIBIOTICS AND TAMIFLU.

20181127_152255

HISTORY
Trouble for kidneys seemed to have started after I had the Swine Flu in 2010, I went along with recommended TAMIFLU.  Known side effects being kidney disease…  LUCKY FOR ME…

Then in 2012 I came up with protein in my urine while pregnant and swollen kidneys, then I had unexplained hives just in the mornings during this pregnancy as well.

 

2018 5th PREGNANCY

Some of the testing late in pregnancy is GBS, Group B Strep.  I was advised that I would be given antibiotics during labor to prevent transferring this harmful bacteria to the baby.  Well neither option was okay for me so I began to search for more natural ways to cure it and then retest…  I stumbled upon wellnessmama.com and learned that it could be done by basic everyday foods and easy to do.  I quickly went to work and followed the things that I had on hand and a bit more.

GBS POSITIVE

HERE IS WHAT I DID FOR  GBS FOR 5 DAYS…

  • Eating probiotic foods such as Kefir, Sauerkraut and other fermented foods
  • Taking a probiotic supplement and using it vaginally
  • Consuming raw garlic, cloves SEVERAL TIMES daily.  AND healing honey
  • Consuming Coconut Oil for its naturally antiviral properties.
  • raw apple cider vinegar daily internally and a daily rinse douche.
  • Lemon water with GSE- Grapefruit Seed Extract (use with caution and ask your care provider if pregnant)
  • I bathed in borax and vinegar and essential oils

After 5 days, I went in for retesting and came back GBS negative.  I would still be pressured to use antibiotics during labor if I was transported to a hospital for delivery.   Thankfully, we still have a choice and can refuse any treatments without recourse in this beautiful State of Idaho, many thanks for those who diligently fight to remain FREE, HEALTH FREEDOM IDAHO.

 

I delivered in early January at home to a beautiful and healthy baby boy with no GBS…

 

THE FLU

2 days later, I was full on sick with the flu due to exposure at my daughters birthday party.  I kept my baby close and used my Healing Honey and recovered quickly without my son getting sick at all.  Dr Brus wasn’t surprised as Breastmilk is amazing…

  • I doubled up on my HEALING HONEY
  • I stayed in bed
  • I soaked in a detox bath when I could
  • I finally drank a cup of expressed breastmilk

BEATING TETANUS and INFECTION

In July, I went to milk our goat and had flip flops on.  I hadn’t planned to do any work out there so I thought I was ok to wear them.  Well this sheet of 4 x 8 siding was leaning on the side of the barn and it was in the way of clearing some manure that I was going to shovel up, so I attempted to move this sheet by myself using my foot as a leverage point.  I slid the sheet right over my foot and before I knew it, I had sent a large stick sliver, manure and all, into the side of my foot.  I finished working and hadn’t realized just how big this SLIVER really was.  I filtered the milk and then looked down to check out the damage, by this time i was having trouble walking and sat down to realize this SLIVER was large and 4 inches long.

20180824_150820

The stick went in diagonally from the side and all the way to my big toe.

Having had trouble with the ER, I considered pulling it out myself until I realized just how big it was and that it was woven between foot bones and cartilage and move my bones each time I stepped flat.

I gathered up my kids from the farm and into the van and we drove to the ER.

It only bled what you see in the picture and I waited 30 mins to head to the ER from time of injury, 30-45 minutes of waiting to be roomed at the ER, 20 or so minutes from then for the Dr to come in and look, 20 plus minutes for them to decide what to do next and x-ray (even though you cannot see wood in an x-ray) and then 10 plus minutes to gather needed, meds, tools and supplies to remove the PLANK…

Having understanding of the dangers of antibiotics and kidneystones (point #8 in article)…  I strongly refused antibiotics and the understanding of the ingredients and risk I strongly refused the tetanus shot against Dr recommendations.   I also read up how others have fought off tetanus naturally

So about 2 hrs of time for bacteria to set in well…

20180824_163943

The nice Dr. carefully removed the wood piece and was about to leave, when I asked to see what she had removed.  She showed me the SMALL piece in the photo below.  I had to tell her that I was sure there was more inside and that what she had pulled out was only 1/4 of what was still inside.  She wasn’t so sure, but after my convincing her there was more, she agreed to cut open the other end near the toe and explore some more.  She pulled another 3 inches out the other end and irrigated it and let it bleed a little.

 

A nurse then came in to clean and wrap it and proceeded to contaminate it and cover it tightly with wound dressing against the recommendations to avoid tetanus.

I raced out of there as fast as I could and went home to soak it in a hot detox bath.

Here is what I did..

Soaked my foot several times that day

Took natural infection fighting remedies below.

In a small foot tub I added

  • Hottest water I could get
  • 1/4 c borax
  • 1/4 c epsom salt
  • 1/4 c apple cider vinegar
  • Thyme and Cloves Essential oils

I applied to the foot but not over the wound

Remedies I took internally

  • several spoonfuls of Healing Honey as several times a day
  • GSE – Grapefruit Seed Extract
  • Sovereign Silver
  • Chewing and swallowing raw garlic
  • Lots of water
  • Probiotics
  • Olive Leaf Extract

 

I continued to soak and take internal remedies until signs were completely absent for a few days.  It was still very painful to walk and I may have something still festering out but have not had to return to have it removed.

HERE is what I did when my daughter was sick with a FEVER

 

Help, my kidneys hurt!

After going through kidney stone removal in the ER a few times and also passing them at home, I thought I would share a few quick tips on how to manage the pain and how to know when to see the Dr.

3 Things to do while deciding what to do

 

KIDNEY BLASTER DRINK

I do this 5 or more times a day when I feel any pain in kidneys

  • Avoid Further Dehydration
  • 5 x 16 oz of water (2-3 times more than normal)
    • 1 Lemon squeezed in water 16 oz
    • 2 TBSP Olive oil
    • 4 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
    • 2 TBSP Honey
    • 3 TBSP Molasses

This is How I Start My Day…..

Lavender Rub

Topically Apply over Kidneys as needed

  • 1 drop Lavender and or Juniper Berry essential oil
  • 1 TBSP Coconut oil

 

Find ways to reduce stress

 

 

Healing Honey

I discovered this amazing remedy by trying to use up extra ingredients I had around.  I threw them altogether and let them sit a while.  Then when I needed extra garlic it was easier to get in the kids or myself.

Healing Honey

  • Local Raw Honey
  • Raw Garlic Cloves
  • Minced Ginger Root
  • Minced Turmeric Root

Peel and dice all ingredients and fill a small, medium or large mason jar and pour honey over til you cover the ingredients leaving 1/8 ” head space.  Cover lightly with a lid.  In 12-24 hours add more honey til jar is full.  The mix will somewhat ferment.

Once runny, store in a cool dry place or refrigerate for longer keeping.  I have had mine over 6 months.  If using metal canning lids you may consider a piece of parchment or waxed paper to reduce rusting lid around the ring.

 

Take a spoonful or more as needed for any and all symptoms.

Great for illness, parasites, infections, sore throat, GBS, headache, pain and inflammation, cold or flu, and more
