Kidney Disorder

Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine, offers holistic approaches to managing kidney disorders.
Common kidney disorders include kidney stones, chronic kidney disease (CKD), and urinary tract
infections (UTIs). Here are some Ayurvedic insights into causes, symptoms, and treatments:


  •  Imbalanced Doshas: Ayurveda believes kidney disorders stem from imbalances in the three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.
  • Poor Diet: Excessive intake of salty, spicy, and processed foods can harm the kidneys
  • .Dehydration: Inadequate water intake can lead to kidney stone formation.
  • Stress: Chronic stress may impact kidney health.
  • Genetics: Some kidney disorders have a genetic component.


  • Pain: Kidney stones can cause severe, colicky pain in the back or side.
  •  Frequent Urination: UTIs often lead to increased urination with pain or discomfort.
  • Swelling: Edema or swelling in the ankles, face, or hands may occur with CKD.
  •  Fatigue: Kidney disorders can lead to fatigue and weakness.
  • Blood in Urine: Hematuria, or blood in the urine, can be a symptom.

Ayurvedic Treatments:

  • Dietary Changes: Ayurveda emphasizes a balanced diet, avoiding processed foods, and promoting kidney-friendly foods.
  • Herbo-mineral medications.
  • Yoga and Meditation: Practices like Pranayama and meditation can help reduce stress and
    promote overall health.
