Conventionally, treatment of kidney diseases especially chronic kidney disease is quite complex. Modern medical science hardly has an approach for nephron regeneration, hence no cure for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Often the advanced stage patients go for dialysis or kidney transplant therefore.
Conventional complimentary or traditional systems of medicines like Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Homeopathy, Naturopathy are considered risky in treating kidney diseases generally due to its high potassium and bhasma (heavy metals and minerals) presence that are considered adverse in kidney conditions. However, few traditional medicine were an exception, where the treatment protocol was based on Goraya theory of modern medical science (A study by Goraya et al showed that increasing the amount of alkali-inducing fruits and vegetables in the diet may help to reduce kidney injury. In this report, 30 days of a diet that included fruits and vegetables, in amounts calculated to reduce dietary acid by half, resulted in decreased urinary albumin, N-acetyl β-D-glucosaminidase, and transforming growth factor β in patients with moderately reduced estimated GFR as a result of hypertensive nephropathy).
However, fruits, vegetables and cooked sprouts can increase the chance of increased serum potassium which is dangerous for CKD patients (Hyperkalemia – increased risk of cardiac muscle stiffness, which may lead to cardiac arrest). Another risk of high consumption of fruits and vegetables can increase fluid accumulation in tissues which leads to pleural edema and pleural effusion ( fluid accumulation in lungs).
The UDHWEEPANI medicines are prepared only from leaf and stems of herbs and specially prepared in traditional process founded and standardized in over 800 years of collective experience of physicians over generations. No potassium and fluid restrictions during these medication intervention, and medicines are free from complete side effects. Even a kid of 1 year old can consume these medicines due to the safety of preparation. The medicinal action is implied only for patients, while for others it acts only as food.
Any mistake or compromise in the quality of medicines of kidney patients will be life threatening. Hence, lot of importance is given for selection, collection and preparation of medicines. Absolutely no compromise on the quality of medicines. Kidney patients (CKD) medicines are diuretic in nature. The patient is recommended for taking more fruits and vegetables there by avoiding the accumulation of excess potassium and fluid accumulation in the body. This whole process of treating kidney patients helps improve the kidney functions by reducing the creatinine, urea, potassium, controlling blood pressure. Improvement in hemoglobin will be observed due to increased secretion of erythropoetin hormones from kidney.
