Fasting For Kidney Damage

Hi guys. I’m starting a new juice fast today. I’m trying to heal my damaged kidneys from 23 years of Type 1 diabetes and ten years of drug abuse. My diabetes is pretty well controlled now, but for about 15 years it wasn’t. For about five of those I didn’t even own a blood glucose meter.

I started today off with a cup of tea as I didn’t want caffeine withdrawal headache. I forgot to mention that I’m trying to give smoking too.l I know smoking will hurt my kidneys. I have three left in my pack that I’ll smoke today, then I won’t buy any more for at least until my fast is finished. I know Tom says to fast until I get pain in my kidneys, so that’s what I’ll do. This has usually taken three days before.

I’m sticking to lower juices like tomato and green juice, as fruit causes a spike in blood sugar.


Hi Fiona,

Different ailments have different reactions to fasting.  Sometimes the kidneys may hurt and other times they do not.

The best rule is go slow by drinking about 3 litres of juice per and spacing out the glass to regular intervals. Always take a chromium supplement and get some  parsley for juicing with the other veggies.  If your kidneys start to ache use avocado to slow the fast down.  Take Vitamin E 1200 IU daily, B complex and 4 tablespoons of hemp and flax oil daily. If you can fill in a progress report it keeps things clear.

If a butterfly could talk of its experience of changing from a crawling insect into a multi-colored, graceful, flying creation, it would most likely be saying the words I felt in my heart. My healing through the 40 days of juice fasting gave back what drugs took away. Thanks for your support Tom. You were a good friend when I needed one.-Carl Wineberg

At the end of the 17-day fast, a physical problem was gone. My doctor had told me I had a stomach reflex disease and would have to take pills for the rest of my life, but after the fast I no longer had that disease; I was completely healed. Thanks Tom, your books and support was fabulous.-Grace Lang

I have lost over 30 lbs. to date, and have a new look as well as a new outlook on life. Not only did the fasting help me with my physical self, but my spiritual self will never be the same. The books were a total support and read them several times, especially when detoxing and feeling apathetic. I heard you have a new book coming out. Save my email, I want it.-Debbie Ried

On the 27th of August 2001 I began a 30 day juice fast. I didn’t actually plan to do 30 days, it seemed impossible to even think of. I just began and thought I’d see where it went. Now I stand in amazement. You asked what I thought of your books. OUTSTANDING!!!-Gray Hodge

This is the information I have been searching for. So clear, so commons sense, I wonder why I missed it. When I was younger, I was an athlete, but now.... 20 years later, oh no. But, you gave me new vision and inspiration. Second day of my juice fast and my wife is loves the recipe book. I would recommend these books to anyone how needs a life overhaul.-Juan Callion

Ok, I now know just how messed up I am. The chapters on the emotions and eating hit home. I am planning a fast but, I know that I need to rebuild and cleanse my mind of all the toxic thinking and emotions that make me want to hide in the pleasures of food. I feel alive for the first time in many years. Keep on going, Tom you have helped me more than my words can express.-Suzie Bilinere

Looking at Moreno Tuguinay now, I am amazed. The transformation from a sickly man to a beaming, positively hopeful one, free of all those health problems which have plagued him through the years is simply remarkable – and all achieved without taking any drugs, just juice fasting for a month. For a physician trained in conventional medicine, this is an eye opener.-Dr. Clare Lalwet

    Thanks Tom. So it’s OK to take the oil and supplements when I’m fasting? Is it OK if I add the oil to my juice?

    • Tom Coghill Tom Coghill says:

      Hi StoneAgeQueen,
      Yes you can blend it with the juice or just take essential oils with a tablespoon.

      • ClydeBe says:

        I do NOT recommend juice fasting especially for KIDNEY problems, unless it is very low sugar, vegetable type. Sugar is the biggest toxin today and the major kidney killer. I have had normal patients come in after juice fasting and have been diabetic because of juice fasting.
        If you want to rebuild kidneys, some things to consider:
        Good things for KIDNEY regrowth are spirulina, asparagus, watermelon, parsley, seeds, celery. Avoid chocolate and cow dairy products.
        Good amino acids should be arginine, methionine, vitamin A, Lipioc acid. Eat no unnatural foods.
        Several herbs may be useful, inorder of priority: Gokshura, punanarva, shilajit, ashwaghanda, gotu kola, sarsaparilla, Bhumyamalaki, foti, shatavari, manjista, licorice, guduchi, pipali, turmeric, dandelion, ginger, fennel, hibiscus, burdock, cardamom, schizandra.
