What Is the Holistic Medicine for A Relapsed Nephrotic Syndrome

Question: My son who is 4 year old is suffering from Nephrotic Syndrome that started last year of 2014. He was off the steroids but having a relapse. What is the holistic medicine for that case?

What Is the Holistic Medicine for A Relapsed Nephrotic SyndromeAnswer: Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by its frequent relapse. The reason why it relapses frequently is that steroids can not help you solve the problems from the root. Nephrotic Syndrome usually results from kidney inflammation due to some factors. Inflammation increases the permeability of glomerular basement membrane, leading to proteinuria, swelling and some other symptoms. Steroids are just to block inflammatory response. As long as you are off the steroids, inflammation in the kidneys are triggered easily so that Nephrotic Syndrome comes back again.

Holistic medicine includes many aspects, such as western medications, body, mind, spirit, emotions, lifestyle changes, diet and exercise, etc. Now let’s see some of them.

As to emotions

Kidney disease is incurable, which may make patients have some unhealthy emotions, such as depression, sadness, anxiety, etc. They are not good for recovery. In such case, you should adjust your mood to keep these unhealthy emotions away.

As to diet

Nephrotic Syndrome patients should limit the intake of protein to reduce protein leakage. They should also restrict the intake of salt to relieve swelling. Besides, they should control the intake of fat to prevent high cholesterol level. What on earth you can eat depends on your medical condition.

As to treatment

Since steroids can not help you solve the problem, why not try some alternative treatment for Nephrotic Syndrome? In our hospital, we often use Traditional Chinese Medicine to help you have a good curative effect. In TCM, there are many effective therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Composition and Medical Soup. Long-term treatment with TCM can make your whole body balanced so as to reduce the frequent relapse of Nephrotic Syndrome.
