Combat Chronic Kidney Disease Naturally

Natural Remedies for Chronic Kidney Disease

Recent survey study shows that approximately more than 850 million people are affected globally by chronic kidney disease (CKD). The epidemic of CKD is on the rise in India with 10% of the total population suffering from this kidney disease.

Monisha’s Mantra has been spreading the awareness of CKD to the masses for prevention, early detection as well as controlling the chronic kidney disease  epidemic, naturally without medicine. We have regular health self-care programs, workshops and treatments to help everyone stay healthy and smiling.

What is chronic kidney disease?

We have two kidneys about the size of fist placed below the rib cage on either side of lumbar spine. The kidneys play a very important role in keeping the body clean, well-fuelled and function optimally. Chronic kidney disease is the progressive loss of kidney function over a period of time. In the early stages there are no symptoms and if left untreated it can finally lead to kidney failure.

Functions of kidneys

  • Remove excess water and waste products from the blood, after it has circulated through the body.
  • Maintain balance of minerals (sodium, potassium, calcium) in blood.
  • Produce hormones that help in regulating blood pressure and producing red blood cells.
  • Produce an active form of vitamin D, needed for bone health and other functions.
  • Filter the whole blood every 30 minutes.
  • Maintain acid-alkaline (pH) balance in blood.

Symptoms of CKD

  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Weakness.
  • Frequent urination especially at night.
  • Foamy urine.
  • Blood in urine.
  • Itchy dry skin.
  • High blood pressure.
  • Weight loss.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Swelling in legs, ankles, feet or face.
  • Puffy eyes.
  • Muscle cramps.
  • Sleep problem.
  • Concentration issues.
  • Hyperkalemia is excess potassium levels in blood.
CKD stages

Stages of CKD

The stage of kidney disease is determined by the glomerular filtration rate (GFR), which is the measure of kidney function. As the chronic kidney disease progresses GFR decreases.

  1. GFR is 90 and above indicates kidneys are functioning well.
  2. GFR is 60 – 89 indicates kidneys are functioning moderately with no signs.
  3. GFR is 45 – 59 indicates mild damage to kidneys with noticeable symptoms.
  4. GFR is 30 – 44 indicates moderate damage. If detected and treated at this stage, the progress of further kidney damage can be stopped.
  5. GFR is 15 – 29 indicates poor kidney function and damage is severe.
  6. GFR is less than 15 indicates that kidneys are very close to failing and dialysis or kidney transplant needed.

Risk factors of CKD

  • Diabetes and hypertension are the main causes of CKD.
  • Heart disease.
  • Obesity.
  • Polycystic kidney disease is genetic disorder which causes cysts to grow in kidneys.
  • Lupus nephritis an autoimmune disease in which our immune system attacks kidneys.
  • Interstitial nephritis is side effect of medicine that limits kidney’s ability to filter the waste in blood.
  • Glomerulonephritis is glomerular disease in which kidney filters called glomeruli are damaged thus limiting kidney function of filtration.
  • Chronic viral illnesses like hepatitis B, C, HIV and AIDS.
  • Excess alcohol, tobacco intake.
