Alternative Treatments for Kidney failure

This one is in continuation of the previous blog, which suggested certain chemicals which were found to be harmful for kidneys. I am discussing here few more salts which are helpful in kidney disease progression, we must stop all these medicines as soon as possible and take a alternate way through ayurveda natural living and use herbs instead.

Medications That Cause Muscle Breakdown

Some medications cause kidney damage after triggering muscle breakdown, with the best known example being the cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins. Examples include pravastatin (Pravachol), Atorvastatin (Lipitor) and Simvastatin (Zocor), when these medicines initiate breakdown of skeletal muscle cells, they release a protein called myoglobin into the blood. This protein is not excrete-able & then clogs up the kidney's filtering system, causing kidney damage. Symptoms include muscle pain, weakness, back pain, constipation and tea-colored urine.

  • Some medications cause kidney damage after triggering muscle breakdown, with the best known example being the cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins.

This is worst medicine which is prescribed to every diabetic & high cholesterol patient worldwide. Instead few herbs like Dalchini, Guggul, lahsuna can be used which effectively reduces Cholesterol and also help to improve blood circulation. For a complete Ayurvedic treatment for kidney failure we need to stop all these chemicals which help in progression of the disease.

  • Diabetes Medicine

Metformin hydrochloride is widely used medication for Diabetes. This also is not recommended for patients whose Creatinine starts rising. Do you know why?

It can also lead to kidney failure. 30-40% of Diabetic patients are falling into the trap of kidney failure. They do not know what is happening as their blood sugar levels are also normal still their kidney is failing. Now, that’s where the effect of these medicine come into picture. Our kidneys process and excrete this drug out of your body system through urine. If your kidneys are not functioning properly, Metformin can build up in your kidney filter system and create a condition called lactic acidosis. Lactic acidosis is when there is a high amount of lactic acid in the body. It can be life-threatening & is the main reason that why your healthcare provider must monitor your kidney function regularly.  Several studies have highlighted a possible link between Metformin use and an increased risk of developing dementia as well.

Whenever there is a increased risk of kidney failure patient should immediately stop Metformin & should look for alternative treatment for kidney and Diabetes. There are few herbs which can substitute Metformin and are also kidney friendly. Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes helps to reduce blood sugar levels and also improve kidney functioning and reduce proteinuria.

  • Cardiac Surgeries

Acute renal failure (ARF) occurs in up to 30% of patients who undergo cardiac surgery, with dialysis being required in approximately 1% of all patients. The development of kidney injury is associated with a high death rate, a more complicated hospital stay, and a higher risk for infectious complications.

Even here Ayurvedic medicine plays a part here as well. Ayurvedic herbs can help in the treatment of heart blockages. Few herbs like Arjuna, Dhamasa have been found to increase Ejection fraction even. In Ayurvedic treatment of heart disease we try to stop all allopathic chemical drugs & advise patient to take herbs and herbo- mineral compounds which can clear up 90% blockages even.

Hence natural ayurvedic treatment is much better and saves your kidneys from the bad effects of chemicals. Hence the world is moving towards Ayurveda, Natural healing.
