Keywords:CRF, Dialysis, Dashmooladi Sasneha Niruha Vasti, Syp Neeri KFT, Gomutra Arka Shamana
Chronic renal failure (CRF)is one of the clinical entities which occurs as a result hampering of renal function due to many medical or systemic illness developed due to current fast lifestyle. The contemporary science has quite expensive modalities having non confirming results in advanced stages of diseases. Ayurveda, an ancient science, prefers to prevent or treat the disease in initial condition to avoid such complications. The present case study was taken up to evaluate the cumulative effect of Shodhana & Shamana Chikitsa in CRF based on the collaborative application of two fundamental principles of Ayurveda i.e., root cause analysis and treatment according to underlying pathophysiology involved in specific clinical conditions. This is a case report of a male patient having age 69 years who was diagnosed as CRF before five years & on regular conservative treatment in modern science. However, due to persistent increase in values of renal profile, he approached to Panchakarma OPD MGACH& RC. He underwent Dashmooladi Sasneha Niruha Vasti in addition to some proprietary as well as traditional Ayurvedic medicines (Syp. Neeri KFT, Chandrapbha Vati, Punaranavdi Qwath, Gomutra Arka). After one month, there was significant reduction in values of serum creatinine & Serum Blood urea from 4.89 to 1.21 & 64 to 50 respectively with a substantial decrease in systolic & diastolic blood pressure along with improvement in patients' quality of life. This case study will become helpful in planning further research studies with a large sample size based on cost-effective standard regime in Ayurveda for the management of CRF.
