- About Us
A: At ndayurveda.com we use a holistic approach for providing treatments to our kidney patients. Generally a patient is in a dilemma once he or she is diagnosed as having a medical renal disease or a chronic renal failure due to any reason. On the one hand most of the educated world guides that person to go to a nephrologist while on the other hand most of the nephrologists advice the patient to manage the condition with diuretics( if the urine output is less), antihypertensives (if B.P. is on the higher side), anti diabetics ( If the patient is diabetic), Erythropoietin( if the Hb of the patient is falling), and at the same time explain that chronic renal failure due to any reason is a progressive disease and the GFR and the functioning of the kidney will decrease with the passage of time despite all efforts and eventually the patient will require dialysis or Kidney transplant.
So many patients are compelled to search for alternative medicines where most of the patients are having no choice but to take powders and kashayams etc. with non mentioned formulations and with the ayurvedic consultants having lesser knowledge of the latest diagnostic tests and development in the field of nephrology.
Hence the patient wastes valuable time in switching from allopathy to ayurveda or from ayurveda to homeopathy time and again.
Keeping this thing in mind we at ndayurveda.com use a holistic approach for treating our kidney patients and we use multiple medicinal systems namely:
Which work in synergism with each other for the betterment and improvement of the patient. As a result the patient gets the best of each medicine system and shows quicker improvement.
A: The medicines prepared for ndayurveda.com are only manufactured at GMP CERTIFIED and ISO certified units. The medicines are extract based herbal medicines without any heavy metals in any of the medicines for kidney patients.
Each batch of the medicines manufactured has it's Lab Reports and MSD reports (Materials Data Safety), so that the medicines are completely safe for usage.
The medicines are sealed and in tablet and capsule form making it very easy for consumption.
A: For treatment, the patient can follow one of the following patterns as per convenience.
Majority of the patients use our online services for treatment. Since in case of kidney disease it is the reports which provide us most of the information required for starting proper treatment, so we obtain the required reports from the patient through email/ fax/ courier. Based on those reports, our doctor prepares a questionnaire which is for the further knowledge and understanding of the disease. After obtaining the required information, our doctor is made to speak directly to the patient or attendant (in case patient is unable to speak). Finally medicine is delivered to the patient's doorstep with all the instructions to be followed mentioned alongwith.
The patients are also provided with a helpline number where they can select the concerned department and obtain any information required. (+91-7307032211)
b) VISITING THE CENTRE AND STARTING TREATMENT
A few patients visit the centre before starting the treatment. Although there is no medical need of this visit as the medicines remain the same whether a patient starts the medicines by online consultation or after visiting the centre, however a personal visit helps to boost us the confidence of the patient as he is able to interact with other similar patients taking treatments from the centre and showing good improvement. For consultation with our senior doctors, a prior appointment is mandatory.
c) STAYING AT THE CENTRE FOR TREATMENT
Most of the patients who visit our centre stay in our indoor admission wing for various panchkarma body detoxification procedures, which helps to remove the toxins from the body. The staying schedule is for 7/15/30 days, as per the need of the patient.
A: Yes it is completely safe to use ayurvedic medications along with allopathic medicines.

Your check-up should include:
1.. A test of protein levels in your urine. Healthy kidneys filter protein out of the urine. If your kidneys are damaged protein can leak into the urine, indicating the onset of kidney disease.
2.A blood test for creatinine. Creatinine is a waste product produced from normal muscle activity. It’s removed from the blood by the kidneys, but if your kidneys are damaged, your blood will show very high levels of creatinine. The levels of creatinine in the blood can be used to calculate glomerular filtration rate (GFR).
3. An ultrasound or CT scan. The ultrasound or CT scan obtains an image of the kidneys and urinary tract and determines if there is a kidney tumour, stone or other physical anomaly affecting the kidneys and urinary tract.
4. A kidney biopsy. A kidney biopsy identifies the type of kidney disease present, the degree of damage to the kidneys can further suggests the best course of treatment.
