Hello Rutvik,

Anything in excess can be harmful to the body, but our kidneys have this excellent function of flushing out whatever is in excess and make our bodywork in harmony. The problem begins when our kidney itself starts getting hampered with the collected toxins and the treatment needs to be started. The potassium level needs to be balanced in a way that it still can be protected, so the first thing is to avoid certain food items that are of high fats and spice. Here we can discuss certain diet and exercise and some lifestyle change which will treat the problem. Now let us discuss what all things can help you in achieving a healthy body with a healthy dietary plan.


  • Milk and milk products can be the cause of increased swelling, as it can hamper the kidney regulation. Avoiding will help.
  • Any kind of Alcohol and cigarettes will only affect your condition.

Start with drinking plenty of water, as this will help in throwing out excess toxins from the body, at least 4-5 liters water should be taken.

Apples, carrots, and cucumbers are healthy substitutes and low in potassium.


As too much exertion is not advisable in this case, 

Go for a good brisk walk for 45 minutes under the sun. This will help in regulating your health at the same time the sun will be treating the cells by activating them.


15 minutes, music therapy before the sleep time should be helpful, this will not only treat you at a physical level but also at the mental level. 

A healthy mind leads to a healthy body, imagine yourself to be calm and positive and treat yourself well by keeping your mind free. Deep breathing will be helpful especially at night time. 

Using essential oils like lavender and oranges, by putting two-three drops in a bowl of water and inhaling them, will treat mental anxiety.


A sound sleep of 7-8 hours should be helpful in treating any illness, a healthy sleep leads to a healthier body. Sleep is important in order to relax our muscles. 

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you improve.

Thank you
