In brief: No.
Kidney death (if irreversible) is not treatable except for by dialysis or kidney transplant.
Kidney disease is treatable mostly with control of blood pressure and risk factors (like diabetes, cholesterol, protein in urine). There are "natural" things which may be beneficial (sodium bicarbonate, red rice yeast extract) but this has not been firmly established.

In brief: Kidney death
By kidney death, I am assuming that you are referring to kidney failure.
While I am not aware of any natural treatments for kidney failure, there is some evidence that stopping smoking, taking antioxidants, and adding more polyunsaturated fats to your diet can help help slow the effects of types 1 and 2 diabetes on your kidneys. I cannot find anything about kidney death.

If your kidneys have failed, anything other than dialysis or transplantation is utterly futiile. Dr. McCurdy is correct.
