Abstract

CKD encompasses a spectrum of pathophysiologic processes associated with abnormal kidney function and a progressive decline in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Elimination of Malas from the body is also an inductive of good health. There are totally three Malas explained by the Samhitas namely Purisha, Mutra & Sweda. In Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) where there is a less formation of Mutra, the Karma of Mutra is removing Kleda (waste products) from the body. So, the Kleda which resides in the body causes Pratiloma gati of Vata leading to different variety of diseases which involves Dusti of Rakta. Therefore, use of Mutrala & Raktashodhaka Dravyas may be helpful in the subjects of CKD. There is no availability of direct description of CKD in Ayurvedic science, except Vrukka roga Adhikara of Bhaishajya Ratnavali. So, we studied the disease with Ayurvedic concepts on the basis of general signs and symptoms.

Here 28 subjects diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) fulfilling the inclusion criteria were selected incidentally for study. For each subject of CKD Amapachana and Koshtashodhana was done with Hareetakyadi churna, Anubhuta Kashaya and Kaishora Guggulu are administered as Shamanoushadhi. With this intervention, we are able to give mild to moderate improvement in subjective and objective parameters. During the study improvement of subjective parameters are well appreciated than the objective parameters. The objective of the study is to establish the combined effectiveness of Anubhuta Kashaya and Kaishora guggulu in the management of Chronic Kidney Disease.
