My intention was to create a Rachelle Gordon’s Kidney Diet Secrets Review and as a result of reading it I became better informed about many aspects of kidney failure and renal diets. It was interesting to see how much us humans contribute to damaging ourselves but how we can reverse that trend by following straightforward renal friendly recipes let alone looking at our overall lifestyle.
For those that are fortunate enough not to have kidney disease Rachelle identifies 10 tips to prevent it occurring in the first place. They are easy to understand and could be considered to be plain common sense. Tips such as taking regular exercise, avoiding smoking (I didn’t give up smoking until I was admitted for my biopsy!) and reducing your salt and fat intake. This is not to say that it is too late for those who have already been hit by kidney problems, far from it. Rachelle focuses on various aspects of kidney disease, acute, chronic, renal calculi etc. and delivers dietary pointers and nutritional guidelines for all of them. First time I’ve seen a kidney stone diet.
The overall impression I was left with was that prevention is better than cure, however having kidney failure is not the end of the world. If we focussed a bit more on simple things like developing a renal diet plan that included low phosphorus products for example then our future can indeed look much rosier. Looking at all the menus, recipes and diet secrets included in the book at least that plan will be considerably more interesting and varied than I could ever have imagined.
