2014-08-10 18:36| Font Size A A A

Traditional Chinese Medicine for Chronic Kidney FailureTCM is short for Traditional Chinese Medicine which has a history of more than 5,000 years and has been widely used for treating various diseases. For Chronic Kidney Failure patients, how does TCM work adequately? is there any difference if compared to other treatments, like Western medicine?

First, let’s have a look at the overview of chronic kidney failure.

Chronic kidney failure refers that it develops over months even years which is not easy to be treated. Along with decline of renal function, patients’ kidneys fail to function properly, and more and more wastes and toxins will pile up in the body. Consequently, the kidney damage will become more worse and worse.

How does Chinese medicine work for Chronic Kidney Failure?

Although Chinese medicine can not control or relieve the symptoms within a short time as that of western medicine, it aims to repair kidney damage and protect renal function, because it can regulate the body overall. During the treatment, it may need to longer time to achieve the curative effects compared to western medicines. But what I want to emphasize is that herbal medicine come from nature. What’s more, it can solve the problems from the root.

Chinese herbal medicine is just a part of TCM but not the whole about TCM. Traditional Chinese Medicine is the systemic treatment which include the external application of Chinese medicine, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Acupuncture and so on.

The good therapeutic effects of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Remove wastes and toxins from the body. The ingredients of Chinese medicine can expand the blood vessels, promote blood circulation and purify the blood.

New renal functioning tissues will be generated. Chinese medicines can provide necessary nutritions such as essential amino acids, vitamins to renal tissues so as to repair damaged renal tissues and generate new tissues to replace the dead and necrotic ones.

Relieve serious symptoms such as swelling, proteinuria, high blood pressure, hematuria, high creatinine level and so on.

Inhibit the complications like heart disease, digestive system problems, renal anemia and so on.

Through the above the curative effects, the illness condition of kidney disease patients can get well controlled.

The toxicity of traditional Chinese Medicine.

We can not deny that some herbal Chinese medicines do have certain toxicity to the kidneys such as aristolochia. However most Chinese medicines have very little or even no side effects to the kidneys and body if they are taken with correct methods under the guidance of professional practitioner of Chinese medicines. Therefore, it is necessary to ask for doctor’s advice.
