Chronic renal failure (chronic kidney disease) is a serious and ongoing decline of the kidneys. The kidneys are critical to the body's proper function and health because they filter fluids, toxins and wastes from the body. As the kidneys continue to decline, a kidney transplant or dialysis may become necessary. Natural treatment of chronic renal failure includes a diet that is sensitive to the low function of the kidneys, herbs, and charcoal therapy.
If your kidneys are functioning poorly and continuing to decline, you need to be in regular contact with your doctor to monitor your own particular situation. Any suggestions outlined here should only be considered in light of the recommendations of your doctor. Because each individual has different needs and requirements, these suggestions need to be seen as a starting point. Your doctor will be regularly monitoring your blood, kidney function and particular needs.
Additionally, with chronic kidney disease, your body's balance of certain minerals, especially phosphorus and sodium needs to be monitored. Proper balance of nutrients is critical to your body's health, especially to your heart health. Kidney patients usually need to limit their phosphorus and sodium intake, and often their fluid intake to prevent edema and overtaxing the kidneys.
