Do you know that there are 7 deadly sins in
kidney health too? Indulging in one or more of them could be
what’s sabotaging your renal function. So let’s see what they are. Hello, this is Katherine, welcome to 00Kidney. Today I’m going to show you what the 7 most
dangerous and, yes, most deadly sins are for your kidneys. Because some of them can be really deadly,
and not in a figurative way. But, for every deadly sin there’s an heavenly
virtue, so today I’m not just going to show you what the sins are, I’m also going to show
you how to overcome them and maybe use them to improve your kidney health. Because, yes, there are people who are able
to improve their kidney function even if they suffer from kidney disease. It takes constant hard work and dedication,
but it can be done. So today we’re going to talk about how to
get healthier, not about how to get sicker. Just a quick disclaimer, this video is not
meant to be disrespectful and it is not meant to offend anyone. These are NOT the 7 deadly sins of the Christian
teachings, this is a video on how to improve your kidney health. By the way, I’m a very religious person and
religion teaches me to take everyone beliefs very seriously and with respect, be they Christians
or Hindus or Muslims or even atheists or any other religion. I want to read you a quote before I begin. “Making mistakes is something everyone does. Learning from them is not by Anonymous
So What I’m going to do today is not just tell you what these deadly sins of kidney
health are, I’ll also show you what cures these deadly sins. Number 1 Wrath is defined as extreme anger, and it’s
literally a deadly sin. Yes, this sin can be literally deadly, not
just in a figurative way. For one thing, anger can make you stressed,
and stress causes a whole lot of health problems. Things like heart attacks, anxiety attacks,
and strokes as well as ulcers, migraines, and other disorders can all be increased by
anger. When you have any of these, you increase your
risk for permanent damage or problems in your physical health that can continue to manifest
long after that particular anger is gone. Anger and stress can trigger physiological
changes in your body that affect your blood, heart and kidneys. It elevates your risk of a heart attack because
it causes an outpouring of stress hormones like adrenaline, which makes your heart beat
faster and your blood pressure rise. So basically anger can cause hypertension,
one of the main causes of chronic kidney disease. What’s the redemption for anger? When it comes to your kidney health, anger
isn’t always to be conquered. It can be an asset. Like the Theologists and scholars say, the
sin is not anger itself, the sin is wrath, the devastating results that anger produces. So, you can use anger or you can be used by
it. It all depends on how you manage it. Now, the best part about managing anger at
your advantage, is that, according to neuroscientists, much of your personality is not fixed. Rather, it’s made up of habits in thinking,
feeling and behaving. So, when you start to react to anger in a
healthy way, you are actually training your brain. So you can just get angry – and raise you
blood pressure with all the unhealthy consequences for your kidneys – or you can use anger in
a healthy way. Anger can generate acute focus, energy, and
discipline. It also provides direction. Some people get angry for the most trivial
things while other are able to focus their anger in the pursuit of their goals. You can choose to be in the first group or
in the second. Deadly sin n2: This is the overindulgence and overconsumption
of food and drinks. But is it really so bad? Is it really a sin for your kidney health? Maybe not so much. And, in my opinion, today’s society gives
too much importance to gluttony. Why? The idea of eating as a sin is one which features
heavily in almost all major weight loss diet plans in one form or another. Every so-called nutrition expert will tell
you that “eating too much is bad” and that it is “your fault” if THEIR diet doesn’t work. Yes, you may have already heard this a million
times, because it’s an incredibly effective marketing strategy. It will also shift the blame to you, when
things don’t work out properly. So basically the diet industry creates the
rules and you have to follow them. So when things don’t go as planned you are
the one to blame. “The diet industry thrives on the idea that
if you lose weight, the diet is good, and if you don’t, the dieter is bad. It’s a business that only has success because
failures drop out.” So what’s the redemption for gluttony? Well, maybe you shouldn’t worry so much about
it. For people with kidney disease, finding something
to actually eat that doesn’t contain too much sodium or sugar or potassium may be really
tricky. So, let’s say that you find some healthy food
that you really like and that you can actually eat. Or maybe you just followed one of my recipes
to make a kidney friendly veggies burrito or maybe that one for the baba ganoush low
protein snack. Would it be a deadly sin to overindulge a
little bit? Well, according to the diet industry, yes. But according to how the health of your body
really works… maybe not so much. But remember that this only works for foods
that you can actually eat without damaging your kidneys. Deadly sin n 3 Fear is the master and often the cause of
all the deadly sins of kidney health. And it’s a shapeless enemy. It attacks as self-doubt. It snipes as fear of illness and death. But only if you let it. On top of that, when you’re afraid of getting
sick or missing a diagnosis, you’re likely to put yourself at risk of overdiagnosis and
overtreatment, which has been documented to lead to health risks. And, if this wasn’t enough the irony is that
fear and anxiety have been scientifically proven to harm your health. It puts you at risk of everything from heart
disease to cancer to the common cold, according to studies. So, what’s the redemption for fear? First of all, remember that Everyone is afraid
of something. In fact, a study by the National Institute
of Mental Health estimates that up to 12% of the population experiences phobias regularly. So about 24 million of Americans will experience
phobias in their lifetimes. Yes, even healthy people can have a ton of
phobias and other irrational fears. But how can you overcome the fear? Should you just “be brave” and ignore the
danger? Well, no, this is not how it works. Because, for people suffering from kidney
disease, fear is not caused by phobias, but by a real and tangible danger. unfortunately fear is something that people
with kidney disease have to face constantly in their lives. The fear of having to start dialysis, or to
having to undergo a surgery or to see worse levels in the blood analysis. I mean, what’s scarier than an illness that
gets worse over the years? So just trying to be brave may not be enough,
especially for people with kidney disease. And ignoring the fear here is not a solution. What you should do is to remember that fear
is perfectly normal. The fear associated with living with chronic
illness is completely real and common. If you have experienced it, remember that
you are not alone and that, even if it’s scary, you should never lose. Because being afraid is normal, but losing
hope is for sure a sin. Number 4 Sloth, or laziness. In Christianity, sloth is defined as avoidance
of physical or spiritual work. And when it comes to your kidneys, sloth is
a sin if you are not doing enough to improve your health. It’s always better to do something than to
do nothing, and doing nothing as it relates to kidney health is truly sinful. Sloth is abhorring the status quo but not
doing a damn thing about it. Sloth is rejecting your bad kidney health
but not fighting to improve it. Sloth is relying upon “get-healthy-quick”
gimmicks to improve your kidney function. If you watch me regularly, I always say that
the battle for kidney health is a march, not a sprint. Yes, there are no get-healthy-quick tricks
that actually work, especially for kidney disease patients. You need to have a well-planned path to success
if you want to achieve something as remarkable as a real improvement in your kidney function. And you need to follow it step by step. Waiting for things to get worse or forgetting
to get tested or ignoring the symptoms… that’s a deadly sin. What’s the redemption for sloth? The heavenly virtue that’s the contrary of
sloth is diligence. Diligence is carefulness and persistent effort
or work. Bold action is your engine. Without it you fall victim to sloth – the
curse of doing nothing. So don’t forget to get tested when you have
to. Don’t ignore the symptoms, even if you would
prefer not to see them . But let’s be clear. The fight for kidney health can be a tough
one, and the only way to win it is to be strong and brave and to be diligent, not lazy. Sorry, but “get-healthy-quick” solutions aren’t
real. The only real solution is tenacious action. Now, the good part about it is that if you
are watching me right now, if you are trying to learn something to improve your health,
you are already on the good path. I mean, you are dedicating your spare time
to improve. You could be watching one the millions of
funny but useless videos on Youtube right now, but you’re watching me instead. You are trying to improve. So I don’t think the sin of sloth applies
to most of you watching me right now. five Pride has been called the sin from which all
others arise. Of the seven deadly sins, theologians and
sages always reserve pride a special place. Other sins like anger, gluttony and sloth
are all bad, the philosophers say, but pride is the root of all evil. But is pride really so deadly for the health
of your kidneys? Let’s understand it a bit better. How can pride damage you, as a patient? There’s a fundamental aspect of the life of
a patient that can be damaged by pride. The doctor patient relationship. A lot of people think that they are the only
real expert on their condition and that no one knows them like they do. So they refuse to listen to doctors and experts
and only do what they want to do. Now, if this describes you, well, that’s the
sin of pride. What I’m saying here is that pride is a sin
if it makes You refuse to listen to your doctor. So what’s the redemption for pride? Get your money’s worth when you talk to your
doctor. Every single time you talk to your doctor
or to your dietician, You have an opportunity and a right to ask questions and receive answers
that are valuable to you. So try to put your health above your pride
when it comes to the advices you get from your health care provider. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and do your
best to follow the advice. Put pride aside. I often talk about the doctor-patient relationship
because that’s definitely a complicated one. But finding ways to improve this relationship
can really help you, if you’re suffering from a chronic illness like kidney disease. And let’s be honest – many medical conditions
are uncomfortable to discuss. So pride may be preventing you from telling
your doctor about a symptom or a problem you are having. This is another situation in which overcoming
the sin of pride can help you with your renal health. You should not be embarrassed to talk about
anything with your doctor. Actually, leaving out details or lying to
your doctor can be bad for your health because it affects your care. So overcoming pride is definitely the best
policy – especially for your kidney health. Number 6 I don’t think there’s anyone who has pursued
a better kidney health that hasn’t been frustrated with their lack of progress at one moment
or another. That’s especially true for people suffering
from kidney disease. This is a disease that slowly undermines your
health and makes all your progresses in the search for an healthier lifestyle seem worthless. But don’t fall for it. Even if it’s slow, don’t worry. In some cases, in dealing with kidney disease,
a lack of progress of this condition is the biggest progress of all. This acknowledgment is vital to your success
and even sanity. So try not to succumb to perpetual impatience. That’s bad. Why? Because impatience is a fiercely malevolent
sin. It can create irritability and irrationality
and anger. It undermines your happiness and your convictions. Impatience is the leading killer of healthy
dreams. So what’s the redemption for impatience? Patience is what can make you conquer this
sin. So if you are trying to get back your kidney
health and to create an healthier lifestyle, take into account any single good thing that
happens to you. Treasure every single small improvement you
may see. They will help your build your secret weapon
in finding a better health: patience. Because you won’t improve the health of your
kidneys overnight, so try not to be impatient. Number 7 Ignorance
Ok, this is maybe the deadliest of the 7 deadly sins of kidney health. Ignorance can have a devastating effect on
the health of everyone, but especially on the health of people suffering from kidney
disease. You need to learn by yourself so many things
when you are facing a chronic illness that I’ve lost count. So keep getting informed about your health
and keep watching my videos. Thank you for watching!
