Tuberculosis of the Kidneys


In modern times, a course of anti-tuberculosis medications, also called as anti-kochs treatment (AKT) is recommended as the first-line of therapy. Additionally, many ayurvedic herbs can be used in conjunction with the AKT treatment to protect the live, and provide extra strength and nourishment to the kidneys.3

In ancient Ayurveda (as per Charaka- the ancient great sage), a lot of research was focused on the treatment and management (chikitsa) of tuberculosis (Rajyakshma).3

Additionally, Ayurveda also recommends a combination of healthy diet (ahar) and lifestyle changes (vihar) to manage kidney infections. These include:

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

  • Consume healthy and nutritious food
  • Consume foods that have high protein content such as milk, eggs, curd, paneer, cheese, lentils or dals, chicken, fish, etc. These promote weight gain and indirectly help combat tuberculosis
  • Increase intake of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables

Lifestyle changes (Vihar)

  • Avoid excessive stress
  • Avoid excessive physical exertion and exercises
  • Make it a habit to cover your mouth with a mask to protect yourself from infection spread
