Homeopathy is fairly common in some countries and it is applied to treat many diseases, while is it effective in treating FSGS?
What is homeopathy?
The therapy is based on the idea that substances that produce symptoms of sickness in healthy people will have a curative effect when given in dilute quantities to sick people who exhibit those same symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are believed to stimulate the body's own healing processes. Remedies in homeopathy are targeted at the symptoms rather than certain diseases. Thus, some people with the same disease may require different homeopathic medicines and treatments.
It can help patients alleviate some symptoms in FSGS patients as following:
Nausea and vomiting
When too much toxins build up in FSGS patients’ bodies, they may suffer metabolic acidosis and experience nausea and vomiting. In homeopaths, patients are prescribed ipecac to treat nausea and vomiting, as it can cause similar symptoms.
Derived from the inner layer of oyster shells, hepar sulphuris is used to treat infection in kidney.
Many FSGS patients have the symptom of anemia, in this therapy ferrum phos or iron phosphate are used to ease symptoms of low energy and anemia.
However, this therapy lacks plausibility from biology, as homeopathic remedies are so diluted that not even a single molecule of the active agent remains in a solution. Thus, some people claim that homeopathy may work as a placebo rather than a treatment. If patients doubt about the effectiveness of this therapy, they can choose some other therapies, which are effective in treating FSGS, like Immunotherapy.
Immunotherapy can correct the immunoreactions and restore the kidney damage through the six steps: exact diagnosis, blocking immune reaction, immune tolerance, immune clearance, immune protection, and immune adjustment. Years of clinical practices have proved it is effective treatment in treating FSGS.
For FSGS patients, suitable and timely time treatment is very important for them to control their disease. If you need any help, you can contact our online doctor, who can recommend suitable treatment for you.
