Dialysis (also called hemodialysis) is a process that takes your blood from your body and passes it through a machine which filters and removes most of the same waste that the kidneys would remove. Physicians primarily use dialysis to take the place of lost kidney function. It is important to note that for chronic kidney failure, this method typically does NOT help the kidneys heal. Therefore, it is usually a life-long routine unless the doctors perform a kidney transplant.
How long does hemodialysis take?
How long hemodialysis takes varies and depends on how many hours of treatment your doctor ordered. Hemodialysis is actually a form of dialysis. It usually last three to five hours. Another form of dialysis is continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) which takes longer. Finally, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) involves shorter but more frequent treatments.
You may feel a sting or pressure as the medical staff inserts the needles if you have a fistula or graft. Once in place you should not feel the needles. Some patients have other symptoms during dialysis that include upset stomach, vomiting, dizziness, sweating, chills, shortness of breath, muscle cramps, headache, restlessness, or itching.
If you are on peritoneal dialysis, you may feel pressure or coolness as the fluid enters your body. Other feelings may include a fullness in your abdomen, restlessness, or cramping.
The best alternative for dialysis is total body cleansing which we also call detoxing. This alternative for dialysis allows your body to release the waste that your kidneys are unable to filter. This waste is released through the pores of your feet. It accumulates in the water of the foot bath. This process is completely non-invasive. It only takes an hour and, when done properly, the biggest thing you will feel is a sense of relaxation. Some people may feel tingling in their feet or a faint pulling or a vibrating sensation.
BEFORE AND AFTER:
The “BEFORE” picture is a picture of the blood of a person just before they put their feet in the water for dermal detoxification (ionic detox). The cloudiness represents the toxins and waste that the body has been unable to remove. Much of the removal of waste is normally done by the kidneys.
The “AFTER” picture was taken immediately after the dermal detoxification process was finished. Notice that there isn’t any more cloudiness! The equipment aided in the Removal of the toxins without help from the kidneys or dialysis. Note that the round blood cells no longer have cloudiness also. This means that the blood cells have been cleaned. This is what is happening for the cells of the kidney also. The cleansing of the blood and the cells in the blood and the kidneys is what makes our dermal detoxification process more effective than dialysis which only cleans the blood.
