What is kidney failure?
The pathogenesis of kidney disease is generally divided into four stages: Acute Inflammatory Stage (stage 1); Chronic Inflammatory Stage (stage 2); Renal Failure Stage (stage 3); Uremia Stage (stage 4, also known as End-Stage Renal Disease or ESRD).
From the above, we can see that kidney failure is the third stage of kidney disease, in which the kidneys no longer function well enough to do their job. And you may have symptoms such as swelling, foamy urine, weakness, back pain, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, headache, etc.
Why do you get kidney failure?
If you can control your kidney disease well in acute inflammatory stage or chronic inflammatory stage, it will not go into kidney failure. Therefore, the reason why you get kidney failure is that you can not halt the progression of kidney disease in early stage (acute renal inflammation stage and chronic renal inflammation stage).
And the chronic renal inflammation is usually due to the accumulation of excess substances in the body. Those substances include hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, hyperuricemia, various extrinsic antigens, drug residues, heavy metals, etc. And they have two sources. One is the excess nutrients that people ingest in the daily diet, and the other one is the harmful substances that are not excreted in the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine thinks the excess is toxic. In other words, whether it is nutrient or harmful substance, as long as it accumulates in the human body and exceeds the human body's ability to consume or expel it, the excess substance will become toxin and trigger renal inflammation, or even damage kidneys.
Why kidney failure is long-lasting?
Conventional treatment is only to control related symptoms such as proteinuria, high blood pressure and anemia rather than remove toxins from the blood. With the accumulation of excess substances, they will aggravate inflammatory reaction. Those substances can also counteract the effect of medications so as to restrain you from recovery. That is why you take a lot of medicines, but the effect is not satisfying. Simply speaking, it is the blood toxins that affect the outcomes of your treatment.
How do we treat kidney failure?
In our hospital, we believe that treatment of Chronic Renal Inflammation is the key point in curing radically Renal Failure Stage (stage 3)and Uremia Stage (stage 4). The reason is that if the second stage (Chronic Inflammatory Stage) can be cured radically, it will not develop into the third stage (Renal Failure Stage) and forth stage (Uremia Stage). Then how to remove toxins in the blood and reduce chronic renal inflammation? Dialysis is not the only way. Here “Detoxification Therapy”, also called “Nine-Kind Therapy for Clearing Blood Toxins” is often used.
“Nine-Kind Therapy” include:
1. Dual Plasma Exchange Therapy
2. Chinese Medicine Detoxification Therapy (oral Chinese medicine)
3. Chinese Medicine Blood-Activating Therapy (Chinese medicine infusion)
4. Cell (Autoimmune cell) Infusion Therapy
5. Cytokine Infusion Therapy
6. Negative Oxygen Ion Therapy
7. Ozone Therapy
8. Trace Element and Vitamin Supplementary Therapy
9. Developing Good Living Habits
They can remove toxins continuously through the following three aspects:
-Dissolving toxins: here heat toxins and toxins inside and outside cells can be dissolved by tonifying Qi and clearing heat so as to balance anti-inflammation and pro-inflammation of cells and control the disease from getting worse.
-Dispelling toxins: here stasis toxins and wind toxins will be dispelled by reinforcing kidney and activating blood so as to restore normal metabolism function of cells and correct the dysfunction of renal inherent cells. This is helpful for eradicating protein, occult blood and edema.
-Discharging toxins: here damp toxins will be discharged by promoting Qi circulation and removing obstruction in the collaterals. This is helpful to prevent the relapse of disease.
To what extent can we treat kidney failure?
-If your kidney filtration function damage is less than 50%, it is possible to reverse the disease.
-If you have been in kidney failure stage, or kidney filtration function damage is over 50% or even 75%, we can not reverse it neither, but we can help you stabilize the disease and improve it.
-If you have started dialysis, we can help you reduce the side effects of dialysis, promote your living quality, or even decrease the dialysis frequency.
What precautions should be taken on kidney failure?
-To treat kidney failure well, you should take treatment as early as possible.
-Besides medical treatment, you should pay attention to your diet. A reasonable diet is also helpful for you to fight against the disease and reduce kidney damage.
-To follow the doctor’s advice. Do not stop or reduce the medication at will.
-To give up bad living habits, such as smoking, drinking and staying up.
