Herbal Remedies for Azotemia


About Azotemia

We can also say Azotemia is a stage when the kidneys suddenly are unable to filter waste products from your blood. Kidneys form urine which helps remove the wastes and extra water, from the body. If the kidneys are damaged or not working properly, they are not able to remove the waste products from the blood.

Ayurvedic concept

As per Ayurveda, azotemia is because of the blockage in tiny body channels called srotas-the channels. The body channels involved in it are - mutravaha srotas which carry urine and are responsible for the flow of liquid in and out of the kidneys. If there is any blockage in the channels, it results in a disorder, if the outgoing channels are blocked, it results in swelling.
