In our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we treat kidney disease with a series of Chinese medicine treatments like Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Medicinal Soup, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Steaming Therapy, etc. These therapies first remove toxins out of your body via urine, bowel movement and sweat glands. This can set up a clean blood environment for repairing injured kidney tissues and improving renal function. After blood is purified, Chinese medicines help expand blood vessels, improve blood circulation, prevent inflammation and coagulation, degrade extracellular matrix and provide nutrients so as to improve renal function gradually. Our Chinese medicines can help you avoid steroids naturally.
