Is Acupuncture Effective on FSGS Patients

Is Acupuncture Effective on FSGS PatientsAcupuncture is a kind of Chinese therapy that has been used for centuries. It is to insert thin needles into the acupoints. By stimulating specific areas of body, you can achieve the purpose of treating disease. Because acupuncture seldom has side effects, it is popular among more and more people. Is acupuncture effective on FSGS patients?

First, let’s see what is FSGS.

FSGS is a kidney disease that can lead to glomerulosclerosis. In FSGS, the scarring occurs only in some of the glomeruli. And only part of the individual glomeruli is damaged. Glomeruli are responsible for filtering waste from blood. Once they are damaged, waste begins to build up in blood, which over time can slow down blood flow. As a result, substances in the blood will deposit in the blood vessels, leading to stasis. Long-term blood stasis may further corrupt, leading to toxins. They can further damage the kidneys.

Second, acupuncture for FSGS patients.

Acupuncture can influence qi and help it flow back into balance. Qi can promote blood flow. It can also strengthen immune system to help you resistant various disease. Besides, acupuncture can dredge the channels and improve local blood circulation so as to promote ischemia and anoxia in the kidneys. Therefore, acupuncture can help improve kidney function for FSGS patients.

Third, other Chinese therapies for FSGS patients.

Acupuncture is not enough. There are also other Chinese therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, circle therapy, steam therapy, enema therapy, moxibustion, foot bath and full bath. They should be combined together to treat FSGS. Only in this way can you have a better prognosis. They can draw out toxins from the blood. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into the kidneys. Moreover, they can eliminate immune complexes from blood to alleviate inflammation. With comprehensive treatment, the damaged kidneys can gradually recover function.
