Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) can cause cysts to grow in kidneys.

Chinese medicine can help relieve back pain.

Therapies such as acupuncture, Moxibustion and hot compress therapy can help improve qi and blood circulation in body so as to relieve back pain. Compared with painkillers in western medicine, Chinese medicine does not have so many side effects, so you can use them safely.

Chinese medicine can boost your energy.

No energy is usually associated with anemia, while anemia is closely related with kidney damage. Chinese medicine can help repair kidney damage and restore kidney function so as to make you energetic.

Chinese medicine can also stop the growth of renal cysts and even shrink them.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a great innovation of traditional Chinese medicine. It can help suppress the activity of renal tubular epithelial cells and lining cells to prevent renal cysts from growing. It can also increase the permeability of cyst wall and the pressure difference inside and outside so that fluid can be drawn out. As a result, renal cysts shrink gradually. After about one month’s treatment, you will see the shrinkage of renal cysts and the enlarged kidneys.
