Chronic Kidney Disease Treatment in Ayurveda with Herbal Remedies

Kidneys are one among the vital organs of our body and a crucial component of the urinary system. Any anomaly or imbalance in the structure or function of the kidneys can deteriorate the entire body mechanism. It can range from mild damages to the kidneys to ultimate kidney failure, if left untreated. Chronic kidney disease manifests when the kidney functions get impaired for over more than several months or years. Most often it is found associated with any other illness or continuous intake of unnecessary medications.

Chronic Kidney Disease

Symptoms may be very few or even absent in initial stages. Most of the time there may not be any symptoms due to renal adaptation but the condition gets worsened as time passes. Frequent tendency for urination at night (nocturia), loss of appetite, fatigue etc may be considered as early signs though. As the impairment progresses, symptoms like nausea, vomiting, seizures etc. may develop. Also there would be accumulation of wastes in the body, fluid retention, electrolyte imbalance, acidosis, conditions like cardiac arrhythmias and many more. Usually kidney function tests, urine and blood tests, ultrasound or certain other examinations may be required for an accurate analysis.

AYURVEDIC TREATMENT

In Ayurveda, as it always says, healthy lifestyle is the main key for prevention and cure of disease. But once the disease has manifested, treatment becomes an inevitable option. So, here Ayurveda can do a lot in preventing any further damages to the kidney as well as the entire urinary system. In addition, it revitalizes from the cellular level so that the person can live a quality life.

Through various Ayurvedic formulations and certain eliminative and palliative procedures, Ayurveda can control the levels of diabetes, blood pressure, body weight and other hormonal imbalances etc., which can act as a predisposing factor for chronic kidney disease.

Kidney disorders can also be considered to be those affecting mutra vaha srotas (urinary channels) in Ayurveda. As a part of treatment, mild shodhana (Purification therapies) are generally done. Also, Basti (medicated enema) holds an important role in these conditions. Medications are selected depending upon the progression of the condition. Herbs like Gokshura (Tribulus terrestris), Punarnava (Boerrhavia diffusa), Sariva (Hemidesmus indicus) etc can be used judiciously in kidney disorders. Medicated water with these herbs can be used for drinking purposes. Besides the treatment approach being more individual specific, mostly the herbs and formulations that possess diuretic (Mootrala), ant-inflammatory and kapha dosha samana (kapha alleviating) properties are made use of. Along with this, Rasayana chikitsa (Rejuvenative therapy) helps in giving new life to the damaged cells to a great extent.

Despite the medications, food and lifestyle changes are something that has to be given prime importance. Protein intake has to be restricted to an extent. Excess salty, spicy and junk foods are to be avoided. Light and freshly cooked food should be taken. Natural urges, especially like those of thirst and micturition should never be suppressed. Pranayama and meditation can bring added benefits.
