FSGS kidney disease occurs when kidney scarring develops in glomeruli which are kidney filters. Ayurvedic treatment, also named for ayurveda, is one of the oldest holistic healing system all over the world. Can ayurvedic treatment help cure FSGS (focal segmental glomerulosclerosis)?
FSGS may be caused by many pathogenic factors, including poison damage, changes in humoral immunity or blood circulation, the deposits of immune complexes in kidneys, etc. All of these conditions lead too many harmful substances to settle in the blood. What’s worse, less blood flow into kidneys, resulting in renal ischemia and anoxia. Finally, kidney scarring appears to provoke FSGS.
Ayurvedic treatment isn’t a single therapy, because it adopts not only natural medicines but also blood purification, massage, medical oils, diet modification, breathing exercises, etc. For this reason, ayurvedic treatment, compared with conventional therapies such as steroids and immunosuppressants, can achieve the following therapeutic effects.
1. Improve patients’ ability to recover from an illness
With FSGS, patients’ immune system is disturbed, so they are at a high risk of infections, cold, fever, chills, etc. Just like Chinese medicine, some Indian herbal medicines can help improve patients’ immunity, so as to stay away from some illness.
2. Reduce FSGS symptoms
High blood pressure, swelling, proteinuria, hematuria, and so on, are all commonly seen in FSGS. If left alone, any FSGS symptom may worsen patients’ health condition and cause further kidney damage. Correct diet modification, medications and some other auxiliary treatment methods are able to help control these symptoms. Consult the online doctor to see what are good for you.
3. Improve patients’ life quality
Ayurvedic treatment is one approach that aims at enhancing patients’ life quality largely, by regulating their internal disorders and controlling their discomforts.
Now, we can know ayurvedic treatment does help treat FSGS. However, it may cause some side effects if used blindly. Therefore, make sure you have consulted the doctor carefully before taking it.
