Question: I am interested in your Hot Compress Therapy for kidney scarring, I was recently diagnosed with FSGS. Any further information would be very beneficial, thanks for your time.
Answer: When referring Chinese medicine, you may think of its bitter taste and some other commonly used therapy, such as acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping therapy, etc. Hot compress is actually also a Chinese medicine, but less used in kidney disease treatment. After years of research and clinical practice, Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine applied Hot Compress Therapy into kidney disease treatment.
First of all, let’s see what is hot compress therapy.
It is to put two herbal bags on your kidney areas, and with the help of thermal effect, active ingredients of medicine can be infiltrated into kidneys to take effect. Its anti-inflammation function can reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse. Its anti-coagulation function can block blood clotting and ensure blood flow to be fluent, and then essential elements can be transports into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. It can also dilate blood vessels to lower high blood pressure and increase blood flow into kidneys. Moreover, it can degrade extracellular matrix to stop kidney fibrosis so as to prevent kidney scarring.
Besides Hot Compress Therapy, you can combine other therapies.
Hot compress therapy is beneficial, but simply one therapy can not reach the purpose quickly. Here we recommend you to try a systemic treatment. It is Toxin-Removing Treatment. After about one week’s treatment, edema will fade away. After about half month’s treatment, proteinuria will be reduced or even turn negative. After about one month’s treatment, FSGS will be under control, and renal function will get improved. Because this treatment can strengthen immunity and promote renal function, it can reduce the relapse of FSGS greatly.
The above hot compress therapy is good for FSGS patients, but it is just a small part of Toxin-Removing Treatment. For more information on our hospital and our treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
