Also known as renal dysfunction, kidney disease is often chronic and has no cure. Patients with this condition often complain of symptoms like water retention, frequent urination, swelling of legs, ankles, feet and face, shortness of breath due to extra fluid in blood, abnormal heart beat, muscle paralysis, fatigue, dizziness and low blood pressure.
The single major complaint that I hear from such patients is that they have disturbed sleep due to frequent urination. They don't get good sleep at night which makes them feel tired and drained out all day. This in turn affects their efficiency and motivation to do anything. Relaxation techniques like savasana and sukhasana are the best remedy for this. These techniques also take care of irregular heart rhythm thus preventing cardiac troubles. To get better control on the bladder Pavanmuktasana and Dhanurvakrasana should be practiced on a regular basis. Apart from that Dhradasana, the firm pose, should be practiced by those who tend to feel dizzy. Practicing Anulom Vilom pranayam to relieve shortness of breath and Makrasana for low blood pressure are effective methods to help this condition.
