2015-10-09 08:22

Is It Ok For Kidney Failure Patients To Eat He Shou WuThe history of He Shou Wu goes back thousands of years in traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a powerful kidney and liver tonic. Well then, for patients with kidney failure, can they eat this herbal medicines?

The answer is yes. But it is my duty to inform you that you should never eat He Shou wu unless you get the permission from your doctor. Because it may cause some side effects if you eat He Shou Wu properly such as diarrhea, liver disease and skin rash.

In kidney failure, almost all kidney function has been damaged. In this stage, patients tend to suffer from serious symptoms and dangerous complications, thus affecting patients’ life severely. If symptoms can be controlled well, it can slow the progression of kidney disease.

He Shou Wu and kidney disease symptoms

1. He Shou Wu and constipation

Constipation is a common complication of kidney failure. He Shou Wu has a substance called emodin that is a stool softer. So it is used as a laxative to treat constipation.

2. He Shou Wu and Toxins Removal

When kidneys are damaged, they have problems discharging toxins from the blood. Toxins will pile up in the body. If left untreated, toxins may cause further kidney damage and affect other organs. He Shou Wu helps remove toxins from your body by cleansing the kidneys. Thus, high creatinine level and high urea level can be lowered to some extent. 

3. He Shou Wu and immune enhancer

He Shou wu can boost your immune system by increasing red blood cell production. The emodin in it stimulates the immune system. Specifically it is effective for people with autoimmune disease like IgA Nephropathy and Lupus Nephritis.

From the above, we can see He Shou Wu has abundant benefits for kidney failure patients. In fact, compared to systematic therapy, single herb is not enough to stop kidney damage from the root. Hence, it is worthwhile to have a try of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and Medicinal Soup, etc. To get detailed information, please leave us a message below or consult our online doctor directly.
