Does Acupuncture Help CKD Stage 3Is acupuncture helpful for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) stage 3? Acupuncture and acupuncture-like somatic nerve stimulation have been used in different kidneys diseases and several complications related to them. Well then how does acupuncture help CKD stage 3?

According to traditional Chinese medicine, kidney disease occurs when yin, yang, qi, blood and so on get imbalanced. The meridian system is responsible for transporting these substances. When needles are inserted into the body, the circulation of qi and blood will be improved and the blockage of meridians will disappear. In this condition, the disease will be cured.

How does acupuncture help CKD Stage 3?

As we mentioned above, acupuncture can help improve blood circulation, which will carry more blood to the kidneys. Thus, renal ischemia and hypoxia will be improved along with the supply of enough blood, oxygen and nutrients. It can prevent further kidney damage, repair the damaged kidney tissues and recover renal functions by alleviating related symptoms:

1. Alleviate back pain

Back pain is often to be seen in CKD stage 3 patients. Acupuncture can alleviate back pain since the needles can stimulate the brain to release endorphins which can relieve the feeling of pain.

2. Control high blood pressure

Acupuncture is able to lower high blood pressure by way of blocking beta-acceptor of sympathetic nerve and by stimulating adrenaline-angiotensin system.

3. Regulate immune disorder

Acupuncture can help regulate immune disorder so as to enhance immunity and improve the patient’s ability to fight various diseases.

Besides, acupuncture can alleviate other kidney disease symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, insomnia and anemia.

Although acupuncture helps CKD stage 3, it cannot cure the disease from the root. It needs to combine with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to help improve kidney function. Both of them are natural and have no side effects. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy has the functions of dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation and anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix so as to prevent further deterioration and protect residual kidney function.
