Can Acupuncture Cure CKD Stage 4Acupuncture is very kidney-beneficial if used rightly. CKD stage 4 is not dangerous enough to deprive one’s life, but serious enough to decrease one’s life quality. Well, can acupuncture cure CKD stage 4?

Acupuncture is a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through skin at strategic points of our body. CKD stage 4 is marked by GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) 15-29. In such a stage, lots of wastes that should be removed out of the body build up in blood, which leads to blood stasis easily. Acupuncture is very helpful for CKD stage 4, and generally patients can get the following benefits:

-Improvement of blood circulation

Due to high levels of toxins in blood and poor renal filtration function, CKD stage 4 patients usually have poor blood circulation. Acupuncture can promote blood circulation in the whole body, including kidney, which is very kidney-beneficial.

-It helps alleviate physical discomforts

CKD stage 4 patients always experience a series of physical discomforts like tiredness, nausea, headache and sleep problems at night. With acupuncture, these discomforts can be alleviated greatly.

-It promotes kidney health

In our body, many acupoints are kidney-related and by stimulating them properly, kidneys can be strengthened.

CKD stage 4 patients can get so many benefits from acupuncture, but we are sorry to tell it can not be cured, because dead kidney tissues can not be brought back to life any more.

Acupuncture is a very great treatment choice in CKD stage 4 and to help patients get obvious treatment effects in short term, other Chinese medicine treatments like Circle Therapy, Enema, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath are always applied to help increase kidney function.
