Updated on December 21, 2012

As promised here is my second hub about kidney disease & Ayurveda.

Ayurveda has blessed with so many herbs to cure some of the most sensitive parts of our body like Kidney, Heart and Liver. And among them the Kidney & the Urinary system are the most important parts of our body.

Ayurveda has many herbs kidney failure, Dialysis and other diseases of Urinary System. Here I am going to introduce three best herbs from Ayurveda for all type of kidney disease, which can be taken along with any other treatment of modem medicine. These herbs are help to avoid DIALYSIS also. These herbs are the best herbs for kidney failure and useful to lower down increased urea and creatinine levels and other symptoms of kidney failure like swelling etc.

These herbs are Gokshur, Punarnava & Varun.

But first we get some knowledge about kidney failure.

Kidney Failure is also known as Renal Failure. Kidney Failure means when the kidneys cannot effectively filter toxins and other waste products from the blood. Kidney failures are two types one is acute and second is chronic. There are many possible causes of kidney failure including many diseases and different drugs. Diseases like Diabetes and High Blood Pressure-Hypertension are main cause of Chronic Kidney Failure.


Gokharu (Tribulus terrestris)

Gokshura in Ayurveda traditionally has been used for kidney failure from any reason, Urinary disorder, renal calculi, hypertension, diabetes and to improve libido. It can also improve Vitality and Vigour. Gokhru can increase the number and motility of spermatozoa, and also helps to remove some symptoms related to male menopause. Gokhru can reduce high blood pressure. And also reduce sodium and fluid retention.

Useful in diseases

  • Impotence
  • Kidney diseases
  • Urinary disorders
  • Urinary stones
  • Swelling

Punarnava (Boerhavia diffusa)


The name says “pun-nava” means New Again, Punarnava can rejuvenates the dying cells and helps to revive the dying organs of the body.

Punarnava is the second herb of my choice for kidney failure. Punarnava is diuretic and anti-inflammatory thus it helps to maintain proper kidney function. Punarnava is also very useful herb for oedema.

Punarnava work as a rejuvenator for the body. Punarnava is very much useful for diabetes patients who suffering from kidney diseases also.

Punarnava helps to remove harmful toxins from the kidney and helps to heal damages caused by any drug or any diseases like Diabetes.

Punarnava can be taken as an Iron supplements and fulfils iron deficiency in the body. So, it cures Anemia caused by poor kidney function.

Punarnava is very useful herbal diuretic so it can give relief in painful micturition.

      sorry for so late reply, I was not available.

      as per situation of your mother, it is very difficult to treat with ayurveda, better to continue your medicine and if needed dialysis.
