Dear Darshan,
I really appreciate your care & concern for well being of your father.Although you have not mentioned all details, I assume that your father has Chronic kidney disease.
Dialysis is a treatment which is instituted only when essential & becomes life-saving for the patient.Every patient may not tolerate the dialysis well & that depends on many factors.
I strongly feel that your father needs thrice a week dialysis against twice.
His tolerance may become better there after.
If he is very much scared of hemodialysis,you can switch over to CAPD.
I strongly advocate you to continue dialysis.There are various diet plans, drugs available which can lessen the bad -effects of dialysis.
THere is no substitute available neither in Ayurved nor in Homeopathy for dialysis,however these drugs may help a person tolerate dialysis better.

Hi,darshan,thanks for query.Why you are so much afraid of dialysis ? see it is never by choice.When even the kidneys are not functioning well, the patient has to undergo dialysis to remove waste products from the body.Depending upon the disease the duration of dialysis will be decided.In case of permanent damage to kidneys this needs to be done on regular basis.Please discuss this with your doctor.Nothing else helps.
wishing you good health.

Hi welcome to Healthcaremagic

Hi darshan, The only treatment available for the Renal Failure is dialysis... no other treatment is available... or else if the health of the patient is good, then Kidney transplant may be next only available treatment... As kidney purifies blood, in case of RF, no tablet, or injection can cure it only transplant or dialysis will be helpful...
Hope I have answered your question..

If you go for ayurvedic treatment by proper consultation,dialysis can be stopped gradually.The first thing u have to do that go to a knowlegeble & experienced Ayu. doctor in your area & go for medication and Panchakarma Treatment.
Dialysis,in this way can be stopped & continue Ayu.treatment.It will be helpful to him.

Hi Mr Darshan
Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, Kidney, Heart n Brain are vital organ of our body, if once they affected or injured this is irreversible . we cant cure that damaged part. so if your father has been suffering from kidney diease n on dialysis. then you can reduse the frequency of dialysis by medicine n diet control but cnt stop it. you have to remove toxins from his body by dialysis, due to medicine n diet control intencity of production of toxin redused so that reduse frequency of it.

Hello darshan ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Dialysis is required when the kidney function is compromised and decreased and the creatinine is increased.Till the creatinine drops down to a reasonable level there is no replacement of treatment in cases of kidney failure.Your father will need dialysis till the creatinine levels come down where he can be managed with medicines and the other option is kidney transplant which can be done only after assessing the general condition of the patient for which the treating doctor will be the better person to answer about the transplant option.
