Kidney-Urinary Disorders

Kidney-Urinary Disorders

Kidney and urinary tract disorders can involve one or both kidneys, one or both ureters, the bladder, or the urethra, and in men, the prostate, one or both testes, or the epididymis.

Some urinary tract disorders rarely cause symptoms until the problem is very advanced. These include kidney failure, tumors and stones that do not block urine flow, and some low-grade infections. Sometimes, symptoms occur but are very general or vague and are not always obviously related to the kidneys. For example, a general feeling of illness (malaise), loss of appetite, or nausea may be the only symptoms of advanced kidney failure. In older people, mental confusion may be the first recognized symptom of infection or kidney failure. Symptoms that are more suggestive of a kidney or urinary problem include pain in the side (flank), swelling of the feet or legs, and problems with urination.

Incontinence is an uncontrollable loss of urine, which can have a variety of causes.

What you can expect:

According to Ayurveda urine formation starts in intestine itself although filtration takes place in kidneys. Imbalance of agni (fire element ) disturbs  the process of formation and filtration of urine, Malformed urine leads to accumulation of wastes in the body.This unwanted accumulation is known as ‘ama sanchaya’ (toxin accumulation) in Ayurveda. This ‘ama’ accumulation manifests as – loss of appetite,tiredness,heaviness,puffiness around the eyes excess water in the later stages and abnormal values of Creatitnine, Urea ,GFR  e.t.c. On the basis of different factors, damage at different levels of filtration apparatus can take place.

We focus on digestion of ‘ama’ (toxin) by increasing  ‘agni’ (metabolism).This is done by using medicines which are having fire enhancing qualities. These medicines are further processed according to the status of disease and body constitution of the patient. After assessment of patient’s metabolic status (Agni), the medicines are prescribed along with some dietary and lifestyle changes.
