Treating Polycystic Kidney Disease
- Kidneys are vital to the human body, which means that kidney failure results in transplants or dialysis to manually remove the body of wastes. Because the kidneys serve an important function in the body–they filter fluids and wastes from the blood to form urine and regulate some of the body’s substances–the effects are serious when kidney disease develops. Polycystic kidney disease is especially dangerous because it can cause liver cysts and problems with blood vessels in the heart and the brain in addition to causing kidney malfunction. PKD can also cause blood in the urine, frequent urinary tract infections, high blood pressure, kidney stones, aneuryisms,and diverticulosis. Therefore, treatment for PKD is vitally important in keeping the disease and its symptoms under control and to help prevent kidney failure later. Because patients suffering from polycystic kidney disease display an array of symptoms, various treatments are prescribed by traditional doctors. Over-the-counter pain medications are given for discomfort, large amounts of water are recommended when blood is in the urine to keep it diluted, hormone avoidance or partial liver removal are used to treat liver cysts, low sodium healthy diets are advised to keep blood pressure under control, and antibiotics are used to treat frequent kidney infections.

Your body has two kidneys that function to filter toxins and waste products from your blood. They also regulate the electrolyte levels in your body. Waste products of cellular metabolism, often rich in nitrogen, are eliminated from your body in the form of urine. Occasionally, urine can crystallize and form renal calculi (kidney stones). If left untreated, these kidney stones can cause blockage and severe pain. However, by applying the natural treatments below, and after consulting with a doctor about your symptoms, you can cleanse your urinary system of kidney stones at home.
