So your doctor has just told you that you are suffering with kidney disease and you’re just sitting there scared out of your mind not knowing what this actually means or what the future has in store for you.
You start by talking to all sorts of so called experts on what your next steps should be but no matter what advice they give you… deep down you feel completely alone and hopeless. You wish that the doctors have made some sort of mistake and that any moment now you’ll receive that phone call from them letting you know that it was all a big misunderstanding. But obviously that never happens.
This is the exact process that pretty much everyone who is diagnosed with kidney disease will experience and officially it’s called the Kubler Ross Cycle… where the person will go through denial, anger, depression and finally onto acceptance.
But it’s going to be really important that you go from the stage of denial straight to becoming as positive as possible… not only because it will be mentally alot easier but having a positive mindset is the key to helping yourself get into amazing health in record time.
You’ll find that there are many research studies out there that prove that the mind has a very powerful affect on the body… especially in a physiological way.
This is why it’s so important that you only think positive about your situation regardless of the challenges and obstacles that you might be facing.
You also don’t want to be one of those people that is happy and positive one moment but sad and depressed the next moment. This will totally drain you out emotionally which is not a great idea when you’re trying to get your health back in order. Rather you should follow the tips below to help keep yourself in a positive state at all times.
1. Cut and Destroy ALL The Different Labels You Place on Yourself
One of the most common things people do is bash themselves up mentally when something in their life goes wrong.
We always blame the failures on ourselves and keep thinking up scenarios of all the things that we could have done differently. But all this negative way of thinking is causing unnecessary strain which will not do you any good especially when you’re trying to lose weight and get into great shape.
2. The Problems You Face Are Your Greatest Assets
If you dig into the lives of the most successful people then you’ll find that they only achieved the great success they are currently known for after going through quite a bit of hardship. But instead of letting this overwhelm them, they used it as motivation to move forward and achieve what they wanted to achieve.
Your issues with kidney disease are no different. Instead of allowing it to stop you, use it as an opportunity to get into even better health than before.
While not every single person with an illness such as renal disease will go on to become a superstar, it doesn’t mean that they can’t move forward and experience great inner success. There are so many people out there that have gone onto actually appreciating their own life a lot more, then there are others who have gone onto actually developing strong relationships with the people that they love the most. What you end up discovering about yourself is something that only you are going to be able to find out.
But know that your situation with kidney failure is a blessing in disguise as long as you see it that way. Ignore the obstacle and focus on the treasures that lie beneath.
3. Start To Overcome Your Obstacles One Step at a Time
The reality is that nothing great that was achieved by any human being was done overnight. Just take a look at the example of the Great Wall of China. It was the result of laying one brick on top of another until slowly but surely the wall was complete.
The sad reality is that most people give up before they lay a single brick because they feel what they are trying to achieve is just completely impossible… or more likely going to require way too much work.
But I’m here to let you know that it isn’t at all hard. All you need to do is remain faithful and keep putting in the hard work every single day. Keep this up and believe me it’ll only be a matter of time before you end up in truly exceptional condition.
Just make sure to not overwhelm yourself by taking it one tiny step at a time.
4. Always Be Grateful For Everything You Have
Being grateful is really an amazing habit to develop and the key thing that will help you focus on the things that you do have instead of what you don’t have.
The best way to develop this habit is to just wake up every single day and be grateful for everything you love in your life. It really doesn’t matter what you write down as long as you love the thing, just write it down.
Keep this habit up and you’ll find yourself feeling really great all the time… and that is the optimal state you want to be in to allow your body to heal in record time.
5. Start To Exercise As Often as Possible!
As I mentioned earlier in this article, the connection between the mind and body is completely inseparable. You’ll find that having a really healthy mind is the key to developing a really healthy body and vice versa. A great way to push yourself to develop both is to implement a consistent exercise routine.
Just imagine a dead person for a second and I bet the picture that pops into your mind is that of a hard, stiff and lifeless corpse. Now think about a healthy live child and you’ll imagine someone that’s running around like crazy having fun and moving about.
So you can literally say that the sheer act of moving is what brings about life. This is precisely why you must exercise as much as you can! Your health and body depend upon it.
Truth be told, I only really have one piece of advice when it comes to exercise and that’s to have as much fun as you possibly can. It doesn’t matter what the latest scientific report tells you on the benefits of a certain exercise because if you’re not enjoying yourself while you’re exercising then you are just going to end up quitting very soon.
So please just get out there and do whatever you can to try different things. Only by trying a huge variety of different exercises will you be able to know exactly which one you love the most.
So there you have it guys, the exact tips that will help you remain positive and ensure you overcome kidney disease in no time at all!
Hopefully these tips will help you move toward the great health you truly deserve. Plus don’t forget to eat right by getting on a high quality renal diet, because as I mentioned before you need to develop a healthy body to create a healthy mind.
Did you know that your kidney’s filter about 200 quarts of bodily fluid every single day!
This whole filtration process that the kidneys perform will keep your blood clean and actually get rid of the waste that’s in your body by sending it all to the bladder.
If you’re unfortunate enough to experience kidney failure then you’ll find that your overall health will slowly but surely deteriorate.
But if you take action right now then you can actually prevent anything bad from happening and in fact you can expect your kidney’s to run perfectly well until the day you die!
Be sure to follow the tips below to really get the best results in the shortest possible time…
1. Ensure Your Body is Hydrated
You have to make sure that you’re drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Rather than constantly worrying about how much water you’re getting in your body, just get rid of all the other terrible drinks that you’re used to consuming and simply replace it with water.
You honestly don’t need to drink things like coffee and soda because they are not going to do anything but cause harm to your body.
The other benefit of not drinking drinks that are full of sugar is that you are going to prevent your kidneys from having to work too hard to get rid of it all from your blood.
2. Start Consuming More Fruits and Vegetables
You really need to make sure that you start consuming a whole lot more fruits and vegetables because this is the key to not only keeping your kidneys working in pristine condition but it will also help to keep your overall health great.
The great thing about consuming fresh fruits and vegetables is that they contain a ton of great things such as phytochemicals and antioxidants which are really important in helping your kidneys clean up their blood and get rid of free radicals… which are the things that literally cause your cells to die.
They also have a good amount of anti inflammatory properties which will prevent your kidneys from getting damaged when they carry out their day to day activities.
You shouldn’t worry about how much you should eat in terms of servings. Simply get rid of all the snack foods you eat and replace them with more vegetables at meal times.
3. Totally Avoid Sodium
It’ll be in your kidney’s long term interest to make sure that you start eating foods that contain a little less sodium in them.
Sodium in excess really isn’t great because it prevents your kidney’s from carrying out its job properly.
At its core sodium is basically an electrolyte and therefore your body has to work to maintain a balance of this substance to ensure that your blood pressure remains stable.
Having too much sodium in the body will mean that your kidneys will be put under extra pressure for no reason.
You should also note that the increase in high blood pressure will result in your organs getting damaged which includes your kidneys.
4. Work To Keep Your Weight Down
Work really hard to follow a proper kidney diet that is low in sugar. Eating processed foods that contain too much sugar is just going to result in you gaining an incredible amount of weight for no reason.
The heavier you are, the more fluids your kidneys are going to have to process every single day… therefore the more stress they will ultimately experience.
5. Stop Smoking, Drinking or Doing Drugs
You have to stop smoking, drinking or doing any kinds of drugs. You’re doing great if you don’t do any of these things anyway but make sure that you refrain from them.
One of the main jobs that your kidneys have is that they have to work really hard to get rid of toxins.
By taking in extra toxins from the likes of things like drugs, alcohol and smoking, you’re just going to cause your kidneys to work overtime.
So these are my tips that you must implement in order to get your kidneys functioning healthily for the rest of your life. Make sure that you implement them because that is the key to getting really amazing results! Don’t forget to check out my post on keeping a positive mindset at all times!
