As the prescriptions of Chinese herbal medicine depend on individual state, so a right diagnosis before taking herbs is very import. Which kind of herbs you need and how much the dosage will be, totally result from the diagnosis of Chinese herbal therapists. Thereby, different individuals will get different prescriptions. Meantime, as patient’s condition turn good or bad, the prescriptions will add or take away, increase or reduce different herbs.
Many people take Chinese herbs, particularly the tonic ones, without properly understanding whether they are suitable for their condition or constitution. It is also common for the diagnosis to change as the physiology moves toward a state of greater balance. The herbal prescription is then adjusted accordingly.
Right diagnosis mainly should acknowledge the following condition clearly.
●What disease the patient suffer from? Many people confuse with PKD and cyst on kidneys. For the two diseases are very different in many aspects, it is important to identify which disease you have.
● Illness condition of patient, including the symptoms, such as flank pain, back pain; and complications, such as high blood pressure, kidney stone etc.
● The severity of renal cysts, symptoms and complication. Whether patients have stepped in renal failure. How mach renal function is left. All of these are the basis for therapists to make a proper prescription of PKD.
Most herbs have a gentle effect on the body, but their indiscriminate use over a long period of time, or even a short period in certain cases, may cause side effects. Such side effects rarely occur if the proper diagnosis has been obtained. If you need help, please mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
