Kidney’s Anatomy: Covering the areas of the abdomen

In our textbooks, we must have read about kidneys that resemble the shape of red beans. This pair of organs is located under the ribcage in the abdominal area. They may have a fist-size but plays massive roles in keeping the health of entire human anatomy. Some of its primary functions are:

  • Keep the blood free from all the wastes and toxins.
  • Maintain a healthy level of water in the body.
  • Convert the waste in a liquidated from i.e., the urine.
  • Release hormones that can regulate the functioning of adrenal glands.
  • Help in the formation of white blood cells.
  • Maintain a pH balance of the blood.
  • Help in the maintenance of bone health by releasing hormones and vitamin D.

As per the experts of Ayurvedic treatment for abdomen and kidney, the blood that flows from the heart to kidneys flows for filtration. It comes for the waste removal and the adjustments of minerals and electrolytes if needed. The filtered waste then converts into the urine and releases through the urethra. The process of urine from kidneys to urethra goes like this: converted urine gets collected in the kidneys pelvis (a funnel-shaped structure) that passes the urine to the ureter (pipe-like structures) connected to the bladder. When the bladder is full, it gives the collected urine to the urethra that releases out from the body at last.

Each kidney comprises tiny filters that are known to be the nephrons, and within those nephrons, they contain thousands of Glomerulus known to be Glomeruli. You can live with one kidney but will need intensive care. As per the context of Ayurvedic kidney treatment, your kidneys can work with 10% functioning and will not let you know if you are diseased. However, it will give specific symptoms that may indicate kidney problems. If blood flow from the heart to kidneys stops, chances are even that your kidney could die or fail altogether.

Other organs associated with the kidneys’ functioning in the abdominal area:

As discussed earlier that the kidneys help other organs in performing their functions in many ways. The other organs that are present in the abdominal area are:

  • Adrenal glands
  • Ureters
  • Urinary Bladder
  • Urethra
  • Adrenal glands:

Like little caps, the adrenal (or suprarenal) organs sit on the kidneys. Some portions of the endocrine framework, the organs are partitioned into two segments, the adrenal cortex, and the adrenal medulla, and each integrates and secretes an alternate arrangement of hormones. The different hormones help the kidneys to monitor sodium, in this manner, rationing water. They additionally assume a job in supporting the body’s conceptive capacities, in addition to other things.


The ureters are like two connected pipes to kidneys and the bladder. One end is connected to the ends of the kidneys, and another end is connected to the bladder. The ureter is a tube that helps transport the waste produced or filtered by the kidneys to the urinary bladder. There are two ureters. These small tubes are responsible for transferring the wastes and toxins in liquid form called the urine to the bladder that gets collected and released through the urethra.

Urinary bladder:

The bladder is a cup-like structure that collects the urine transported by kidneys to remove from the body. Once the bladder is full of the urine, it is released through urethra out of the body. The structure of the urinary bladder is placed near the woman’s vagina and has three spaces to collect and release urine. Two holes placed where the ureter gets connected to kidneys, and the last one is placed where the urine is released through the urethra. The bladder is made up of soft tissues that create a funnel shape and help in with the collection of urine until it’s full.

The takeaway:

Ayurvedic kidney treatment works on all the organs placed in the abdominal area, especially those directly connected to the functioning of kidneys, i.e., renal system. The placement of kidneys may have behind the ribcage in the lower abdominal but is potent enough to affect the entire functioning going on in the abdomen of an individual. The  abdominal treatment in Ayurveda and natural medicines used in kidney disease removal help in the eradication of adverse effects that may have been put because of renal impairment. It recovers the damage done to kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the adrenal glands on a prior basis.
