Kidney Failure

kidney diseaseOverview

Kidney function may be impaired by diseases or drugs that effect the Kidney parenchyma, by extra Kidney disorders such as acute circulatory failure or as a result of conditions in which there is obstruction to outflow of urine. The deterioration of kidney function that ensues may be acute or chronic and of varying degree of severity.

Causes

Acute Kidney failure is caused by diseases like acute glomerulonephritis, bilateral pyelonephritis, severely high blood pressure and systemic lupus erythamatosus while chronic Kidney failure may result from conditionslsuch as progressive glomerulonephritis, chronic pyelonephritis, polycystic disease of kidneys and tuberculosis of kidneys.

According to Ayurveda, kidneys are the roots of madovaha srotas (channel of fat tissue) and are made up of rakta and meda dhatus (blood and fat tissues). So diseases arising out of these dhatus (tissues) can affect kidneys and cause their failure. Madhumeha (diabetes) is well-known for it.

Symptoms

Nausea
Vomiting
Collection of fluid in lungs
Anaemia
Body swelling
Itching on skin
Ayurvedic View
According to Ayurveda this disease is caused by the blockage of minute body channels called srotas. The body channels involved in this case, known as mutravaha srotas, carry urine and are responsible for the flow of liquid into and out of the kidneys. If there are blockages in the incoming srotas the kidneys are denied fluids and shrinkage occurs. However, if the outgoing channels are blocked, swelling occurs. There are very effective Ayurvedic herbs, such as punanarva that can clean these channels and reduce swelling and rejuvenate the kidneys. Ayurvedic treatment aims at strengthening the kidneys, restoring its filtration capacity and general functioning of the kidneys. This line of treatment can eliminate the need for reliance upon dialysis.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

  • Controlling blood pressure, blood sugar level, cholesterol level, body weight, smoking and alcohol consumption is important to avoid kidney damage.
  • To restrict sodium intake, salt is minimized from diet. So avoiding salty food articles like sea food, wafers etc is necessary.
  • Potassium intake is regulated in kidney failure and so low potassium containing food sources like carrots, cabbage, apples etc are preferred.
  • Protein intake too is regulated and low protein sources like cereals, vegetables and fruits are recommended.
  • Fatty, oily and fried foods are avoided.

What Patients Say

He even noticed the small red spots on my back and reported to the nurse. It was very nice to see so much compassion. Hats off to all of you. I made it a point to take the na…
