I Don’t want Dialysis – A Sweat-of-the-Soul Story


                                                                      Human Sparrows in Terror Cells

America now is a land of terror cells. I see the biological effects of terror toxicity with increasing frequency. Following is a conversation with a 67-year-old woman who was hospitalized in a New York university hospital for five days after collapsing in a subway station. It unmasks one ugly face of our land of terror toxicity.

“I don’t want dialysis,” she spoke tearfully as I entered the room.

“Why do you think you need dialysis?” I asked.

“The doctor in the emergency room told me I will need it.”

“Why did you have to go to the emergency room?”

“I collapsed going up the stairs in a subway station.”

“Did you have a cold or a sinus attack?”

“Yes. I don’t want dialysis,” she repeated excitedly.

Creatinine Test for Kidney Health

I had first seen her nearly three years earlier. She suffered from diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, arthralgia (joint pain), enlarged lymph nodes, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and a history of panic attacks. She had responded well to our program. I eyed the gold-colored lab log in her chart and saw the blood creatinine values of 1.3, 1.2, and 1.2 done several months apart. The normal laboratory range is 1.3 mg/dl. Why would the doctor tell her she needs dialysis? I wondered. I looked up. Her 190-pound frame heaved breathlessly. With unsteady hands, she gave me the hospital records. Quickly I scanned the papers for the lab report and found a creatinine value of 1.8.

“Tell me about how you felt before you collapsed?” I looked up and asked.

“The doctor said my GFR kidney test result was very low and I will need dialysis.” She ignored my question.

“No, you don’t need dialysis. Tell me about what happened before you collapsed?” I repeated my question.

“Did you see my GFR test?’ she persisted.

GFR is short for glomerular filtration rate. As reported in routine tests, it is a calculated value, so it is not a real test. Her value was 26. With a creatinine value of 1.8, the calculated GFR value of 26 is insignificant.

“Your GFR value is 26 and it does not mean you need dialysis. How did you feel before you collapsed?”

“Under stress, weak, lightheaded.”

“How long were you in the hospital?”

“Five days.”

“What did they find in the hospital?’

“They did a lot of tests. One good thing is that they did not find the coronary blockages which they had before I first saw you.” She smiled a little.

“Good. That’s wonderful. Did you ever have a heart scan?’

“Yes. Look at this report.” She pushed a pile of papers. “It says there was no coronary stenosis. Doesn’t it mean my heart arteries are clear now?”


“How do you know I won’t need dialysis?” she asked, her anxiety subsiding.

“None of our patients with creatinine number of less than four ever went to dialysis as long as our program was followed. We will give you some treatment and check your blood again. You will see the creatinine level will fall, perhaps down to 1.3 or 1.4, and your GFR value will rise. We will be back where we were three years ago.” I reassured her.

“What does GFR mean?”

“It is an indicator of blood supply to the kidney and the status of the kidney function. Its value can change rapidly in times of severe stress,” I explained.

“So I don’t need dialysis.”


She look at me for several moments, then chirped, “I knew I was coming to the right place.”

The Sparrow in a Terror Cell

Once a sparrow flew into a large room with a cathedral ceiling and one full-wall window. It flew in all directions, evidently to find its way out of the room. The glass wall was the source of its confusion. Two boys in the room and I watched the bird with amusement. It needed to fly down, through an open sliding door and then up and out, but could not figure out the flying-down part. After a while the boys asked me if they could wave towels at it to direct it down and out through the door. That seemed to make sense and I agreed. As they waved large towels at it, the sparrow became frightened and frenetically flew faster in all directions except to the door. The boys doubled their efforts, and so seemed the sparrow. It began to hit the glass wall, something that it was able to avoid before. The boys moved faster and swung the towels wildly at the sparrow. And then it happened suddenly and I never forgot it. The sparrow flew erratically, just as planes do before crashing in video clips, smashed into the glass wall, and dropped dead. Disturbed by the scene, I understood what adrenaline bursts can do to sparrows—and to human sparrows as they are hurdled to emergency rooms—in panic, hyperventilating, their hearts palpitating, struggling to escape the “glass prisons” of our star wars medical technology.

The images of the sparrow have returned to me hundreds of time when I see people frightened out of their wits by what may be designated as “medical towels”—the weapons of our star wars medical technology which frightens and unnerves people in crisis.

What Would Have I Done?

I returned from the images of the sparrow, smiled at her, and asked,

“What do you think I would have done if I were with you at the subway station?”

“Oh God! I wish you were.” She became animated.

“Tell me what I would have done then.”

“You would have told me to breathe slowly. You would have asked me to take coenzyme Q 10 lozenge if I was carrying one. You would ask someone to bring some water to me drink and put some of it on my forehead. Also you would give me a touch of salt to put under the tongue.”

“How do you know all that?”

“Because I remember what your nurse taught me about Feather breathing. And because I read the instruction sheet for palpitations and panic attacks which you gave me.”

“Do you know what else I would have done?’


“I would have also called 911 for am ambulance.”

I anticipate the reader’s question: Why would I call 911 if I am so convinced of the value of the above natural measures? Answer: I would have wanted her to be in equilibrium—and in charge of herself before being taken to the hospital for examination and safety testing to assure that she did not need additional treatment.

I return to the matter of terror toxicity. A doctor’s pointing out the risks of neglected early signs of kidney damage in this case was judicious and laudable. Telling bluntly an individual who collapsed in a subway station and was rushed to a hospital that she would need dialysis was heartless. Telling a person with creatinine level of 1.8 and a GFR number of 26—not a number based on a test actually performed—was medically unjustified. Finally, and this is what frustrated me most and prompted me to write this article, the mainstream doctors have no program to reverse kidney failure. They think this is not possible. Then why terrorize a person in crisis!


The table below compares the lab test done at the hospital and those done later at our Institute. The results show restoration of her kidney function as evidenced by a normal blood creatinine level at our Institute.
