Can Ayurveda Treat Kidney Failure Effectively

2013-04-26 09:51

Can Ayurveda Treat Kidney Failure EffectivelyConsidered as the oldest healing science, Ayurveda is a holistic approach rather than a single treatment that help people live long and healthy. Some kidney failure patients especially Indians prefer to use this approach to treat their disease. However, can ayurveda treat kidney failure effectively? What can we expect from Ayurveda for kidney failure?

In kidney failure, nearly all of kidney function has lost, so that a lot of wastes and toxins build up in the body. In addition, electrolyte imbalance, immune disorders and some other complications may also occur. The basic principle of Ayurveda is to maintain balance in the body, mind, and consciousness through proper drinking, diet and lifestyle, as well as herbal remedies. Among these aspects, the advocates emphasize the role of supreme consciousness in keeping good health.

With the help of maintaining balancing remedies such as pranayama, abhyanga, yoga, etc and herbal medicines prescribed to restore dosha balance, Ayurveda indeed can help control kidney failure patients’ condition to some extent. Most often, after a period of this holistic approach, patients’ immune system can be regulated and they can get more energy to fight against infections and other complications. Does this mean Ayurveda can treat kidney failure effectively?

Unfortunately, the answer may make us disappointed. The goal of Ayurveda is to prevent kidney disease rather than treating it, because all of the above remedies can do nothing to the damaged kidney tissues. Our kidneys have some certain self-curative ability. If the kidney cells are damaged slightly, they can recover to work by themselves. However, for severe damage, they need some repairing treatments to increase their self-curative ability, but Ayurveda is unable to help kidney failure patients achieve this goal.

Therefore, if you are suffering from kidney failure and want to improve your kidney function, you should take some other effective treatments to repair your damaged kidney tissues. The more kidney tissues recover to work, the better your overall condition. Any confusion about diet, lifestyle, treatment, etc, you can leave a message or send email to
