Traditional Chinese medicine doctors believe that all illnesses are a result of the natural flow of energy through the body becoming stuck, depleted or weakened and thus making the individual susceptible to illness. Acupuncture works directly with the body's energy or qi. It benefits the rebalance of qi through treatment of specific acupoints related to symptoms or illness present.

Benefits of acupuncture for Chronic Kidney Disease

Inadequate blood flow to the kidney will cause renal ischemia and hypoxia which can cause damages, even necrosis of kidney cells. Acupuncture can greatly change this condition and preventing further damages to the kidney cells.

Second, acupuncture can regulate endocrine disorders and accelerates metabolism so as to remove the excess waste which is accumulating in the body, resulting in the alleviation of illness condition, such as edema. And patients will feel more energic after acupuncture.

Third, high blood pressure is a common symptom of CKD. Acupuncture can help control it, because there are certain acupuncture points that can help control and stabilize blood pressure.
