Applying Ayurvedic Principles for Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Kidney Diseases: An Integrative Approach

Dr. Abhay N Kulkarni | Dr. Rajashree A Kulkarni

Abstract: This paper explores the application of Ayurvedic principles and methodologies in diagnosing and treating Chronic Kidney Diseases CKD. It delves into the Anukta philosophy, a concept in Ayurveda that can be utilized to diagnose and treat diseases not explicitly mentioned in Ayurvedic texts. The paper demonstrates how this philosophy can be applied to CKD, a condition that lacks a known Ayurvedic diagnosis. The study involves a comprehensive analysis and scientific interpretation of references related to Kidney in Ayurvedic classical texts using Tantrayukti, a methodology of interpretation of verses. The paper concludes that Kidneys were known to Ayurveda, and their anatomical description and physiology are elaborately mentioned. The paper also suggests that CKD can be diagnosed as Nija Basti Marmabhighata leading to Udara, or Nephrogenic Ascites, based on Ayurvedic principles.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Kidney, CKD, Organs, Anukta, Tantrayukti
