Try Yoga For Kidney Health

Try Yoga For Kidney Health

The origin of Yoga can be traced back to ancient India. It is a practice that focuses on harmony between mind and body. Yoga combines different asanas (posture), breathing and meditation techniques. It demonstrates some benefits on fitness, flexibility, balance, and release of stress and anxiety, which are equivalent to mild or moderate exercises. Other than these, a small study showed that Yoga benefits people with chronic kidney problems.


The study recruited 54 participants with chronic kidney problems and divided them into two groups: Yoga Group and Control Group. Participants in the Yoga Group were required to practice specific yogic asanas for at least 5 days per week for 40-60 mins each time, along with conventional treatment. On the other hand, participants in the Control Group were offered traditional treatment only. In the end, 50 participants (Yoga Group: 50; Control Group: 50) completed 6 months follow-up.


Specific yogic asanas include:

Standing asanas: Mountain posture with arms stretched up and with bound hands, standing forward bend, hand-to-foot pose, and half-waist-rotation pose

Sitting asanas: Seated forward bend, sitting half spinal twist, extension of the front body, and hare pose

Supine asanas: Sphinx pose, bridge pose, boat pose, reclining bound angle posture, bow pose, crocodile pose, and corpse pose

Breathing techniques: alternative nostril breathing, humming bee breath, cooling pranayama, and abdominal breathing in a lying-down position

Yogic relaxation technique with imagery or mindfulness-based stress reduction


The result showed that Yoga Group participants significantly reduced blood pressure, blood urea, and serum creatinine levels. There was also a significant improvement in the physical and psychological domain of quality of life. For the Control Group, a rise in blood pressure, a decline in kidney function, and quality of life were observed.


Yoga is for everyone regardless of age or gender, and no expensive equipment is required. It may be a good choice for managing chronic kidney problems.

"Can doctors know how well my kidney is functioning by simply looking at my creatinine level in blood?" That's properly a common question to ask. In short, the answer is no. Today, we will go through what creatinine is and how it is linked with kidney function.   Creatinine is a waste product produced when creatine, a molecule that provides energy to the muscles, is broken down. Creatinine is then eliminated from the body through the kidneys. When the ki
Swelling is one of the common signs for people living with kidney problems. It often indicates the kidneys do not remove excess fluid. Swelling can happen in ankles, feet, or any body part. It is rather uncomfortable because it can affect walking or cause shortness of breath.   There is an easy test to get an idea if one has swelled. Press on a bony area on the lower legs for around 5 seconds. Observe any pit formed, and if there is a dimple, note the depth of the pit

DTS is scientifically proven to be beneficial to kidney function and has a positive effect on supporting the eGFR level. It is suitable for people to use as kidney support. Some may wonder, how about individuals without any kidney issues? Is DTS good for them too?   Absolutely yes! As “prevention is better than cure” is one of the basic modern healthcare strategies, the best time to take DTS is right before any kidney and liver problems show up. The herbal
Using creatinine as an indication of kidney function level is common, but just this number alone is not the optimal way to monitor kidney health nor to detect early kidney problems. According to professional recommendations, using an eGFR level is a more accurate indication of kidney health.   Creatinine is a by-product generated from protein metabolism. Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr
A study conducted in 2016 has shown that extracts from different parts of Eucommia, such as bark, stem, and seeds, contain health-promoting properties. Here are some examples:   1. Eucommia bark extract demonstrates an antihypertensive effect, confirmed by many human and animal models. 2. Under vivo and vitro studies, Eucommia has established strong antioxidant properties. 3. Eucommia leaf extract shows properties that promote the
