Urinary Tract and Kidney Disease

Urinary tract and kidney conditions are a common complaint for many people.  At Medella Optimal Health this is a strong area of emphasis for us because Dr. Yarnell is an expert in the field of urinary and kidney health.  Dr. Yarnell wrote the textbook on these subjects: Natural Approach to Urology and Men’s Health 2nd ed., Wenatchee: Wild Brilliance Press, 2016., and has over 18 years experience treating these conditions.  If no one else seems to be able to help we can offer many solutions.

If you are suffering from:

  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Chronic Pelvic Pain
  • Chronic Prostatitis
  • Diabetic Nephropathy
  • Hypertensive Kidney Disease
  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Kidney Disease
  • Other urinary tract conditions
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections

We can help with symptomatic relief, but, ultimately, it is our approach to finding and treating the causes that makes us so effective. Very often the complex sources of these problems are ignored in conventional medicine.  Our Physicians screen patients by using more sensitive urine tests than are typically used, allowing us to detect problems sooner and avoid the problems with blood testing (for creatinine) which can potentially cause false alarms.

While addressing the root causes of kidney problems, we can also provide herbal support for kidney function that may help preserve cells. If you have kidney issues due to diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune disease (glomerulonephritis), toxic exposures, or anything else, consider naturopathic support as a part of your healing process.
