Chinese herb medicine also cannot change the abnormal genes in patients with PKD. It has some advantages over western medicine, because apart from relieving symptoms like western medicine does, Chinese medicine also can improve ischemia and anoxia of renal tissues and repair the damaged renal functional cells as well as doing with the increasing kidney cysts. Speaking in detailedly, Chinese herb medicine takes effect mainly from the follow aspects.
1) Some herb medicines have effects of anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation as well as preventing blood viscosity, dilating blood vessels and degrading extra cellular matrixes. Therefore, Chinese herb medicine can improve blood circulation and thereby improve ischemia and anoxia of renal tissues. As you know, ischemia and anoxia are the key factors of renal fibrosis.
2) Chinese herbs can supply vitamin, micronutrients, organic acid and other nutrients for repairing the damaged renal functional cells. Also, some herbs stimulate DNA replication of the damaged cells, thus speeding up the progress of cells’ self-repair.
3) Chinese herb medicine deals with kidneys cysts mainly through increasing the permeability of cyst walls and restraining secretion of cyst fluids. Compared with removing cysts by surgery, Chinese herb medicine is relatively slow, but it can deal with both small and big cysts and won’t cause any damage to the kidneys issues.
