Alternative treatment to dialysis

Dialysis is not the best treatment for Kidney Failure patients. They have natural choices. Here is a general introduction of our characteristic treatments.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This therapy is an innovation of traditional Chinese herbs. Unlike oral medicines, this therapy is an external application. The herbs are micronized and soaked with medical fluid. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Therefore, it is very beneficial for improving blood circulation so that the kidney can get enough blood and oxygen to repair the damaged tissues.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cells are called “universal cells”. They are the original cells of our body, and they can differentiate into many other types cells that have certain functions. After injected into kidneys, they can turn into renal tissue cells and renal blood vessel cells, thus restoring normal kidney function structure.

We have rich experience in this field since this therapy has been used in our hospital for decades of years.
