Ayurvedic Medicine for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Ayurvedic medicine stems from India, which is one of the major parts of Indian conventional medicines. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda represents as life science, which is one of the most ancient medicines throughout the world. This treatment has at least 5000 years history. In recent years, the therapy is used to treat various diseases; CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) is one of them. However, can it really correct CKD?

Before answering this question, we’d better get to know some basic knowledge about Ayurveda.

It is believed that three big systems inside one’s body are Vata, Pitta and Kapka. Why one would get sick? It is exactly caused by the imbalance of those three systems. Of course, Chronic Kidney Disease is not an exception. According to Ayurvedic medicine, the renal system is made up of the “Rakta” and “Meda” dhatus. Hence treating those two dhatus work for cure kidney problems. The treatment for CKD is often prescribed as medicines. Those drugs are often natural herbs.

So can Ayurvedic medicine truly correct Chronic Kidney Disease?

No collected data reveals that the therapy could correct not matter CKD or many other kidney problems. I quote this from a doctor: in my experience of more than 30 years, I have not seen someone with kidney disease showing improvement with Ayurvedic medicine. Nevertheless, some patients with Chronic Kidney Disease do show improvements after receiving this treatment. They said that the Ayurvedic therapy of CKD is based on these three principles: firstly, it can heal damaged kidneys; secondly, the treatment works for repairing injured nephrons too; thirdly, it deals with cause of kidney problems.

One thing also requires your attention is that some certain medicines of Ayurveda have nephrotoxicity and should be definitely avoided. Professional nephrologists should be consulted before changing any kind of therapies.

All in all, Ayurvedic medicine may work for those with mild CKD, like stage 1-3 of Chronic Kidney Disease; however, for those who have stage 4 or 5, the treatment may hardly take effect. Any questions? Leave us a message!
