Introduction:Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterized with disrupted kidney function for more than 3 months or in other terms, it is defined as the kidney condition with Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) <60 ml/min per 1.73 m2 .CKD is becoming more common in India as a result of changing lifestyles, dietary habits, hypertension, and uncontrolled diabetes. It is a silent assassin.

Hemo-dialysis and peritoneal dialysis are the most common treatments for chronic kidney failure, followed by kidney transplantation, also carrying many serious adverse effects. The treatment is treatment is highly costly and out of reach for most of patients. Ayurveda has played an essential role in the early stages of renal failure in the hunt for this effective and safe treatment. These approaches are helpful in such diseases, With the changing demand and awareness among these days, the role of ayurveda is an emerging reality.
