Helga was already on nettle extract and alfalfa (for reducing creatinine levels) and slippery elm bark for healthy digestion. We recently added more:
- Nettle extract
- Spirulina powder
- Burdock root
- Dandelion root
- Slippery elm bark
To administer the herbal remedy, which has to be at least 3 hours before or after her regular pharmaceuticals (we do herbs in day, meds at night), I make a brew with hot water, dissolving those that come in tablet form, and mixing in the powdered extracts that come in capsules or powder form.
For pharmaceuticals, Helga is on Fortekor (for renal circulation), Azodyl (kidney-specific probiotics) and Periactin (antihistamine that stimulates appetite), with Vitamin B tablets if her appetite is poor.
