Chronic Kidney Disease CKD

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a long term problem where the kidneys do not work as effectively as they could. Swollen ankles, tiredness, nausea, blood in the urine, and shortness of breath are just some of the symptoms. Symptoms usually only present themselves in advanced stages, however CKD can be detected earlier through diagnostic testing such as blood and urine testing.

The role of the kidneys is to filter waste products from the blood before converting them into urine. Other roles includes, maintaining blood pressure and helping to keep a good balance of chemicals in the body to hep other organs. Although there is said to be no ‘cure’, yoga techniques, a healthy diet and lifestyle, can actually help to halt or slow the progression of the disease.


What is the symptom trying to tell you?

Our kidneys are said to hold our ‘chi’, our vital life force and energy so we do need to look after them. Quite often those with kidney disease have a low self esteem, and possibly have a tendency to give their energy away, and also take things others do/say personally. There could also be some long term standing feelings of loss from the past which is unconsciously wearing you down. Instead of looking outside of yourself, to blame others or situations for wrongs, or following anyone else point of view on things, perhaps it is time for you to bring the power back into yourself and start trusting that you have the answers already. Yoga will help you listen to your higher/inner self, and you will be able to empower yourself through it.
