Naturopathy Treatment for Kidney in Gujarat

The kidneys are responsible for the elimination of nitrogenous wastes from our body, which is quite important as buildup of nitrogenous substances in the body can be quite harmful, even potentially fatal to the patient. In case of renal failure or major problems, it becomes necessary to periodically discharge off the wastes. This can either be done by a kidney transplant from a donor, but there isn't always the time to wait for an organ. In such cases, the wastes are eliminated from the body using dialysis.

Dialysis is the process of eliminating waste material (diffusion) and unwanted water (ultrafiltration) from the blood by artificial means. Although this is naturally the work of our kidneys, due to various reasons, kidney function might deteriorate and hence may require dialysis. Normally, if the serum creatinine level crosses the value 8, then doctors recommend a dialysis.
In other words, dialysis is the artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy).
Naturopathy Treatment
However, a kidney dialysis is quite an expensive affair with a minimum cost of INR 2-3 Lakhs a year in India, and is also very physically and emotionally trying for the patient. This is not even considering how hard it is to find an organ donor and then to hope for the organ to match the patient's body.

Now, though, there is an alternate way. By using naturopathic treatments, the same results as a dialysis, if not better, are observed in a large number of patients. Naturopathy has been proven to be effective in reducing and maintaining creatinine levels and also giving relief from symptoms like vomiting, high blood pressure, loss of appetite and pain. The best part is, since this is an entirely natural procedure, there are almost no side effects on the body.
The role of the kidney is to keep the inner body clean. Naturopathy allows the kidney to rest by reducing the load on it through diet patterns, and by enhancing the function of other cleansing organs like the skin, liver, bowel, etc. This is quite essential, as the body wastes are constantly eliminated without actually having the kidney to perform any work; which is exactly what happens during a dialysis.
Steps of The Treatment:
Naturopathy treatment of kidneys is done in various steps. These include combinations of hot and cold packs on the kidneys, hip baths, friction baths and stimulation of reflex and meridian points. This is done through a combination of diet, Ayurveda and yoga. The treatment improves blood circulation to the kidney, strengthens it, removes impurities and infections to restore the kidney function back to normal.
The naturopathy alternative to dialysis uses Ayurvedic herbs like Punarnava for its diuretic and anti inflammatory properties, Gokshur for treating renal stones and Dysuria and Guduchi to improve the immune system. In addition to this, the diet includes Bottle Gourd Juice, Rice, Rice water, Green Gram Water, Banana water and vegetables like Bottle Gourd, Ivy Gourd, Ridged Luffa, Smooth Luffa Papaya, Radish and Pumpkin.
The treatment procedure runs for 6 weeks at a Nature Cure Centre directly under supervision of a doctor, followed by 2 to 3 months of treatment to be continued at home. After this, a 3 weeks follow up treatment is conducted at Nature Cure Centre. This is the general schedule, but may vary as per requirement of the individual.

Post Treatment Follow-up:
The yoga asanas focus on improving the blood circulation towards the kidneys, through movements that gently squeeze and twist the kidneys. The asanas along with Pranayama and meditation help to build the immune system of the patient, which is quite useful in the long run of the treatment. After all, the main intention behind any treatment is the long term benefits to the patient.

Naturopathy is a risk free method of treating kidney disorders, which would otherwise require a regular dialysis procedure. Also, since it is totally natural, the cost is also considerably lower than a dialysis by machine. This and the increased assurance of a healthy outcome definitely render naturopathy a better alternative than a renal dialysis.
