We have been told that lower back pain originates in an inherited weakness of the spine at its base because we humans walk upright instead of on four legs. And we have been told that the bony hooks that keep the spine aligned are flatter in some families, making it harder for them to hold the spine together. We are also told that “proper exercises” could have kept this part of our bodies strong so lower back pain could be avoided.
Acupressure massage and chiropractic can bring “miraculous” relief. The most severely crippled lower back pain sufferer can shuffle lamely into a chiropractor’s office and walk out normally, without pain or painkiller after treatments. So although there has been slippage of disc or spine, apparently it goes back into place rather easily.
If muscle relaxation is the clue, we must ask why these muscles spasm so easily. Any muscle spasms if you irritate or injure it suddenly. In fact, your whole body spasms and flinches if a sliver or bit of broken glass is in your shoe. If you remove these objects, the leg can walk normally.
Oxalic acid crystals are as sharp as broken glass. Use the kidney cleanse (page 549) to dissolve them and other stones. All lower back pain can be cured by removing the sharp crystals in the kidneys. It takes about three weeks to dissolve them. In some very severe cases, it may take six weeks.
Our bodies make eight or more different kinds of kidney “stones.” The oxalic acid variety is associated with sharp stabbing pains. In its effort to eliminate this extremely vicious acid your body neutralizes it with calcium first to make calcium oxalate. Your kidneys can keep a bit of calcium oxalate in solution but not a lot. The excess hardens into crystals. A glass of regular or iced tea (not herb tea or green tea) has about 20 mg8 of oxalic acid—way too much for kidneys to excrete. Tea is a toxic drink, not to be considered a beverage. Chocolate is very high in oxalate, too, and should not be used as a beverage (as cocoa).
Children should never drink tea or cocoa. Their delicate kidneys should not be faced with the daily burden of excreting large amounts of oxalic acid. And calcium used to neutralize oxalic acid is wasted. Calcium is a precious nutrient. It should be conserved for children’s bone development.
It isn’t necessary to find which variety of kidney crystals are causing your muscle spasms. Different herbs dissolve different kinds. And by combining them into a grand herbal mixture you can be dissolving all varieties at the same time.
Wherever oxalate crystals have formed, a particular bacterium, Proteus vulgaris, can be found. Does that bacterium somehow thrive on oxalate crystals? Or even help them form? Does Proteus itself contribute to lower back pain? Is lower back pain in reality two pains in one—the sharp jabbing of glass-like particles plus the inflammatory effect of bacteria? Fortunately, you can kill Proteus vulgaris electronically.
By using your new diagnostic skills, you can test your kidneys for crystals. The kidney stone varieties I have tested for are: calcium oxalate, uric acid, cysteine, cystine, monocalcium phosphate, dicalcium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate. All these varieties can be dissolved by the herbal mixture. But all can be formed again in a week!
To prevent oxalate formation stop drinking oxalic acid (eating oxalate rich vegetables is not significant—spinach, chard, rhubarb and sorrel all have their place in the diet). Also take magnesium and B6 supplements (as directed in the kidney cleanse).
To prevent phosphate crystals from forming, reduce phosphate consumption and drink milk as a calcium source. Keep your kidneys squeaky clean with herbs and copious water drinking. After drinking one quart of sterilized milk, two pints of water, one-half glass of homemade fruit juice and one-half glass of vegetable juice, there is little desire for additional beverages.
I have no understanding of what may cause cysteine or cystine stones (the genetic theory does not explain them either, considering that people without cystinuria make these stones).
Since they are sulfur-containing, and I have seen them appear after taking sulfa-drugs, it may be wise to avoid use of sulfadrugs if you have a choice, or go on the kidney cleanse afterward.
If you have severe lower back pain you probably have several kinds of stones. Some persons have all seven kinds!
Rosie Zakar, age 30, came to see us because her mother was cured of lower back pain so severe she could do no housework for 30 years. Rosie had the usual crystals in her kidneys: oxalate, urate and phosphates. She was started on the kidney herb recipe. In three weeks she was so much better she would have missed her appointment if she had not wanted to cure her digestive problem and fatigue too.
Vera Vigneault, age 32, came mainly for help in getting pregnant but she already had lower back pain and mid-back pain. If she had gotten pregnant before clearing this up, she might have developed
eclampsia and high blood pressure which are kidney-related disorders. She was started on kidney herbs for these. She chewed gum a lot and had bleeding gums. She stated her bad teeth were hereditary (meaning other family members had bad teeth also). For this she was instructed to stop chewing gum, start drinking three glasses of 2% milk a day and take a vitamin A&D perle. She was to floss her teeth once a day. (All floss varieties are polluted with mercury and thallium. Use monofilament fish line, 2 to 4 lb. weight.) Immediately after flossing she was to brush them with a
new very soft toothbrush with five drops of 17½ % food grade hydrogen peroxide. She was to avoid brushing teeth with metal fillings to reduce erosion. She was to brush them a second time without flossing first, this time with five drops of white iodine (potassium iodide) made up by the pharmacist, again avoiding the metal. She had only oxalate kidney stones and was to stop drinking regular tea, replacing it with single-herb teas. In five weeks her gums were better although she was still chewing a little gum and the “peroxy” had been too painful for her to use. Her low back and mid-back pains were gone too.
Gerhard Rogers, age 39, came for his lower back pain and leg cramps. He had mono, di and tricalcium phosphate crystals in his kidneys. His diet was changed to reduce phosphate (meat, cereal, breads, pasta, carbonated beverage) and increase calcium and minerals. He was to drink three glasses of 2% milk a day and to
start the kidney herb recipe. In 25 days he had only minor improvement. He still had phosphate crystals. He was afraid to drink milk because he had heard so many bad things about it. He was told to boil it first to eliminate these “bad things”. A toxic element test showed a buildup of copper, arsenic, cobalt, cadmium, lead, thallium, vanadium and radon. This could easily explain his leg cramps, headaches and sleep problem, too. The arsenic came
from pesticide, cobalt from detergent, thallium and copper from tooth fillings. The vanadium was fixed by having the gas pipes tightened, and radon could be reduced by improving ventilation under the house. He was thankful for the information and set about cleaning up his body and environment.
Alberta Mellos age 52, came in for lower back pain and upper back pain. It was explained to her that lower back pain was simply due to tiny stones cutting into her tissues but upper back pain was due to gallstones. She could clear her low back pain first. The kidney test showed she had oxalate and cysteine crystals. She was started on the kidney herb recipe. Nineteen days later she arrived with a cold but stated that her low back pain was gone.
Glenn Dirk, age 62, called on the telephone to say his urination had stopped, probably due to kidney stones. This had happened once before and now he was in a panic. He started our kidney herb
recipe the same day and passed 117 stones the same night without bleeding or enough pain to need painkiller. After this, he could focus on his prostate enlargement and pain with sitting. He had intestinal flukes and other stages in his prostate gland as well as in his intestine. He also had Clonorchis (human liver flukes and their eggs) in his prostate. He had carbon tetrachloride methyl butyl ketone and TC Ethylene from food pollution accumulated there too.
After stopping grocery store beverages and killing parasites with a frequency generator, he could urinate normally, freely and without pain.
