Abstract

  Unani System of Medicine puts great emphasis on lifestyle management for the promotion of health and prevention and treatment of disease. Therefore, it is of immense relevance to present times as lifestyle diseases are imposing the greatest burden on healthcare. With the changes in the lifestyle, many diseases have emerged in the past few decades. These include diabetes, hypertension leading to kidney failure and other disorders especially in developing countries. Unani physicians have described a number of drugs to strengthen and tone up kidneys. These drugs help in restoring the functions of kidneys. The paper includes the concept of kidney disease with special reference to nephritis, its types and the single drugs along with their evidence based researches.
