True to my previous post, I’ll be posting all the amazing herbal plants use by my husband in his what we call “miracle shake” as treatment for his CKD along with kidney-friendly meal and regular exercise.
We have been battling this disease for a year now and by God’s grace, we managed to lessen his creatinine level (not at the normal range but atleast not anymore at the diaylisis borderline)
On my previous post, I posted about the amazing Gyunera Procumbens or the “Longevity Spinach”. For this post , I’ll be tackling about Cats Whiskers or the” Balbas Pusa”
Here in the Philippines, we call it “Balbas Pusa” in Tagalog. In Cebu, we call it “Wachichao”. Whatever it is called, the distinct physical features that will make you recognize it is its cat whisker-like flowers and its zigzag-edged leaves.
My first plant came from my neighbor who had been using the plant since 2009 up to now for lowering his uric acid. He boils 15 leaves a day and make it as his daily water ration.
Balbas pusa or Cats Whiskers was included in my husband’s natural prescription for CKD.Patients with this condition have high levels of uric acid and creatinine. As said, this amazing plant is for those with renal inflammation, kidney stones and can decrease blood pressure. It also has components that can treat rheumatism, gout, diabetes, urinary tract infection, liver and bladder problems.
As for my husband, 15-20 leaves of this amazing leaves were added to his “miracle shake”everyday. So I need a lot of this plant to make up his daily dosage. But dont worry, this plant is easy to propagate. After getting all the leaves, you can just directly plant the stem on the soil. Before you know it, it’s already thriving!
All health and wellness to you!
