This therapy i s also used to help kidney disease patients. This article will tell you how moxibustion helps stage 3 kidney disease patients.

How is moxibustion used?

Moxibustion is a therapy which involves the burning of specific herbs at acupuncture points. In moxibustion, the leaves of the Chinese herb mugwort are dried and then burned using one of several methods. The practitioner places a finger next to the point being stimulated to maintain a comfortable level of heat and to guard the patient from the unlikely risk of burn. Alternative medicine proponents claim that moxibustion can help stage 3 kidney disease patients from the following aspects:

1. Improve blood flow

Moxibustion has been proven useful for blood stagnation or blood deficiency as it is considered to help improve blood flow as well as oxygen distribution. With more blood and oxygen being transported to kidneys, renal ischemia and anoxia state can be alleviated.

2. Boost immune system

Moxibustion helps boost immune system and prevents the onset of disease. However, it is advisable to consult a doctor when you are sick to avert potential health complications.

3. Prolong your lifespan

Moxibustion can prolong life, improve memory, slow down the process of aging, improve kidney function and boost longevity.

Besides, moxibustion can also treat a variety of illnesses and conditions in kidney disease such as headaches, nausea, diarrhea, lower back pain, constipation and muscle stiffness. Although moxibustion cannot treat kidney disease from the root, it can slow down the progression of kidney disease through controlling some symptoms.
