Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment for Nephritis

Nephritic syndrome is also known as rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, and is usually seen in adults. Common symptoms of this condition include a reduced urine output, presence of blood and protein in the urine, and swelling in the body. Glomerulonephritis is believed to result from a dysfunction of the immune system of the body, usually resulting from the after-effects of a viral infection or autoimmune disease. Since this condition involves damage to the kidneys, the outcome of this disease in most patients may not be very favorable.

Ayurvedic herbal treatment for nephritic syndrome is aimed at treating the symptoms as well as reversing the damage done to the kidneys, while at the same time normalising the immune system of the affected individual. Herbal medicines which have a specific action on the kidneys are used in high doses in this condition, in order to bring about a rapid response and prevent long-term damage. The medicines used for the treatment of this condition usually act both on the kidney tissue as well as on the microcirculation supplying the kidneys. This helps in minimizing damage, healing damaged tissue, and bringing the filtration process to a normal or near normal level.

Ayurvedic herbal medicines are also given in order to bring about a systematic immunomodulation of the affected individual so as to bring about an early recovery and prevent relapse of the condition. Medicines which have known immune boosting properties are used in high doses in order to overcome the effects of viral infection or autoimmune disease. Early institution of Ayurvedic treatment is important in order to bring about a complete recovery and prevent long-term damage to the kidneys.

Most individuals affected with nephritic syndrome require Ayurvedic herbal treatment for about four to six months, in order to get significant relief from the condition. Ayurvedic herbal treatment can thus be judiciously utilised in the management and treatment of nephritic syndrome.
