Although there is no complete cure for kidney disease, we can still take some treatment to slow the progression of kidney disease and improve some kidney function. Nowadays natural remedies are welcomed by more and more patients. In our hospital, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a natural remedy for kidney disease. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) but used externally. The Chinese medicines are micronized and put into two bags. They are soaked with penetrant fluid and put under patients’ kidney area. The active ingredients can come to kidney lesion directly via an osmosis device .

The progression of kidney disease can be slowed.
