What are some ways we can benefit the kidneys per Dr. D's teachings?

I know of Hytrax and the urinary tract protocol. Am I missing something? Thank you. :)

From the Encyclopedia, pg. 342:
Therapies, Kidney Stones - All blood groups:
Reduce intake of foods that cause urinary oxalate....  These foods are spinach, rhubarb, beet greens, nuts, chocolate, tea, bran, almonds, peanuts, and strawberries.
Per type: Urinary Tract health protocol.

Interesting - I read of someone on here saying that there was no need to avoid oxalates??!

"This is what Dr D had to say about it in 2008. Glad to read his opinion on it. Avoiding oxalates, unless medically necessary due to kidney stones or whatever, seems like a waste of time and a boring way to eat, to say the least.:)
You can't have a flavone (anti-oxidant) rich food without it almost always being an oxalate rich food as well. While not great in high amounts for people who have kidney stones (and even then just about the only people who do go on to form stones have metabolic syndrome), oxalic acids do possess anticancer effects, increase intracellular energy and lower p-glycoprotein."

It confuses me...

What he says here is that unless you have kidney stones (or another medical issue where high oxalates are a problem), then enjoy the foods that contain them because they provide benefits as well...

Does this help clear the water?

That sounds like a post from a thread I posted about oxalates a long time ago. Wonder what happened to that thread anyway. The link doesn't work for me. Must have been one of those of mine that got deleted..... We had a thorough discussion about oxalates back then - the benefits far surpassing the risks of eating them UNLESS you have kidney stones or other serious issues.

Watermelon is great by itself - haven't tried it with parsley yet.
