Optional Products

Optional Products

Most people on our nutritional balancing program will have the following optional products recommended for them: Renamide, Selenium and Endo-Veggies.

  • Renamide is kidney support.
  • Selenium is a mineral with many uses in the body, including the removal of toxic metals.
  • Endo-Veggies is vegetable concentrates in a capsule.

The reason these are optional is that they are not essential for balancing your body chemistry. They provide extra support that helps to move your healing along at a faster pace, but you will still progress without them. Some people do not want to take more pills or have other reasons for needing to keep their supplement programs smaller, so they can choose to skip these optional products.

Dosing the optional products:

The doses listed are the maximum amount per day, so you may take less than the dose listed. You may also mix and match with the optional products, meaning they do not all have to be taken together. For example, you could decide just to take the Renamide and none of the others. Or you could take Selenium and Endo-Veggies and not Renamide, etc. You may go on and off of them, rotate them, etc. There is no wrong way to do it. For example, I have taken these products the whole time I have been on this program, but for the last couple of years, I only take 2 Renamide per day, 3 Endo-Veggies and 2 Selenium. If I think my kidneys are under some stress due to a detox, I take more Renamide at that time.

More about what these products do:

Renamide – Most people’s kidneys are stressed, depleted and toxic. This is due to:

  • the heavy burden placed on them by our toxic environment (many toxins are filtered out of the body through the kidneys)
  • not drinking enough water
  • nutrient deficiencies that most people have which weaken the kidneys

Additionally, on this protocol your body will be removing toxins that were stored in organs and other tissues, and many of these toxins will have to go out through your kidneys. So your kidneys will get worked hard while on this program. For all of these reasons, it is a good idea to nourish your kidneys to help strengthen them. This is what Renamide does.

Selenium – there is some selenium in each of the multiple vitamin/mineral formulas (Megapan, Stress Pak and SBF Formula), so you are already getting some selenium if you are on one of these. Adding extra selenium is helpful due to all of the benefits of selenium. We like to use Endo-met’s food-based selenium because other selenium products can build up toxicity. So please do not buy random selenium products. Selenium is needed by every cell in the body. It is used by the body when removing toxic metals, especially mercury. Selenium is also used along with iodine by the thyroid to make and regulate thyroid hormones. So it is very important for energy production. It also has anti-oxidant properties, is important for the immune system and has many other benefits.

Endo-Veggies – in addition to the many well-known benefits of vegetables, the particular vegetable concentrates found in Endo-Veggies provide nutrients the liver uses to process and remove toxins. I find Endo-Veggies very helpful, for example, in the removal of toxic chemicals. In some cases, where people are processing highly toxic chemicals that are causing detoxification symptoms, I have found giving extra Endo-Veggies relieves their symptoms and speeds the removal of the chemicals. If you have any known food allergies, be sure to check the ingredients of this product prior to use. Ingredients are listed below.

Exceptions to use of these products:

We sometimes substitute Endo-met’s Garlic for selenium. This is often true if the person has high blood pressure, because we find the garlic more supportive for that condition. Garlic is a rich source of selenium and has other beneficial properties that may be indicated for various health problems.

We generally do not recommend the optional products for people in Four Lows. We also use them sparingly with infants and toddlers in order to keep their quantities of pills lower.

Pregnancy: I recommend discontinuing Renamide when pregnant due to the properties of the herb Uva Ursi that is in the product. Some literature indicates it may cause pre-mature contractions.
