2015-06-29 02:10

Lupus Nephritis Treatment: Western Medicine and Chinese MedicineSimply speaking, systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease. Namely antibodies and immune complexes accumulate in the body and cause damage on various organs. Lupus nephritis is a kidney damage which is caused by antibodies and immune complexes depositing in kidneys.

Why is difficult to treat lupus nephritis?

There are two reasons: one is to cleanse toxic and harmful substances in blood (antibodies and immune complexes ); the other is to discharge toxic and harmful substances depositing in kidneys.

No matter western medicines and Chinese medicines should aim to achieve these two goals. Only in this way can lupus nephritis be treated radically.

Western medicines for lupus nephritis

Western medicines for expelling toxic and harmful substances are blood purification technology such as hemodialysis, plasma exchange and hemofiltration. Among these, plasma exchange is used commonly in Lupus Nephritis.

In addition to blood purification, cyclophosphamide and corticosteroids as well as other immunosuppressive agents should be applied to inhibit the produce of immune complexes. Besides, medications for high blood pressure, high blood sugar, heart failure and blood vessel dilation are also used. Western medicines take effect quickly and various clinical symptoms will be improved obviously in a short time. Plasma exchange is effective to discharge toxic and harmful substances in blood, which slows down kidney damage so most hospitals adopts this treatment plan. However, immune complexes depositing in kidneys cannot be well removed so it is difficult for kidney function to be recovered.

Chinese medicines for Lupus Nephritis

We make a treatment plan “Blood Cleansing and Detoxification Therapy ” including oral taking medicine, external application, foot bath, medicated bath, circle therapy, enema therapy which focuses on kidneys and the whole body.

Chinese medicines cleanse toxins in blood through improving immunity. The active ingredients in Chinese medicines can reactivate and restore kidney function and then make use of kidney’s own function to discharge toxins in the body.

As for removing immune complexes depositing in kidneys, Hot Compress Therapy acts on kidneys directly through double shenshu points and activate kidney microcirculation to improve renal ischemia and hypoxia state. In this way, it can achieve the purpose of cleansing immune complexes and recover kidney function. Once kidney function is recovered, it can speed up immune complexes removal, forming a virtuous circle.
