Priya Visweswaran Balakrishnan, MD, a Nephrologist, Regenerative Medicine Specialist and Internist with The Immortality Institute

Get to know Nephrologist, Regenerative Medicine Specialist and Internist Dr. Priya Visweswaran Balakrishnan, who serves patients in Houston, Texas.

Dr. Balakrishnan is a board-certified nephrologist and internist with clinical and research experience. Additionally, she is a survivor of multi-organ failure and near-death experience, as such she feels she was born to reverse kidney failure. 

She is the Principle Investigator of The Immortality Institute in Houston, Texas. The primary purpose of The Immortality Institute is to reverse and to cure, not merely control, chronic medical illnesses. Every distinguished consultant or collaborator of Team Immortality is a part of the effort to reverse kidney failure.

In regards to her educational background, Dr. Balakrishnan earned her medical degree from Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research in Pondicherry, India in 1994. Seven years later, in 2001, immediately after completing her renal fellowship, she sought advice from her mother, Lalitha, about opening her own dialysis unit. Lalitha urged her daughter instead to try and do everything she could to prevent patients from going on dialysis. 

In 2007, Dr. Balakrishnan received bad news when she admitted herself for multi-organ failure and extensive bilateral kidney scarring. The near-death experience led her to develop a patented protocol to reverse kidney failure that is highly effective and safe. This protocol involves enhancing cellular energy production in the kidneys and the body by utilizing a mixture of safe and effective biochemicals.

Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the kidneys. It is the study of normal kidney function and kidney disease, the preservation of kidney health, and the treatment of kidney disease, from diet and medication to renal replacement therapy. Nephrologists have advanced training in treating kidney disease. They diagnose and treat kidney failure, as well as help patients by prescribing medications, offering special diet advice, and coordinating dialysis care when the time comes.
