we get it from integrating dr/r' and changing variables to E, how did Kepler get it without calculus and using only his laws.

Another thing how did he see his second law (areal velocity) without differentiation.

Even more amazingly, he did it without computers to manipulate, calculate and visualize the data he was working with.

Bottom line, he did it all with brains and sweat. That's how geniuses always do the amazing things they do.
