Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a group of disorders that result from the formation and progressive enlargement of cysts in the kidneys without dysplasia, usually leading to renal failure.

Can Homeopathy Help PKD Patients

Can Homeopathy Help PKD PatientsHomeopathy, also known as homeopathic remedy is a substitution therapy that can be used to treat a variety of illness conditions including polycystic kidney disease and other kidney problems.

Homeopathy is created in the 18th centry by the German doctor Samuel Hahnemann. He found that he can develop fever similar to that of malaria after he took small amount of Peruvian bark that is used to treat malaria. He continued such experiments on himself and his healthy friends and record what he had observed. He then made a conclusion that to treat a certain disease or illness condition, a drug or medication that can cause the same symptoms and signs of the disease is needed.

Based on this theory, some PKD patients have tried homeopathy and some of them do achieve good effects. Their symptoms such as back pain, urinary tract infections, high blood pressure, nausea, vomiting can be relieved and illness conditions can be stabilized.

However there are also some questions and objections to homeopathy. At present homeopathy is not still a mainstream treatment for PKD and other kidney disease. Most nephrologists think that homeopathy has no curative effects on PKD and on the contrary it can even delay the time for other effective treatment and make illness conditions even worse.

In my opinion, homeopathy should not the used as the only treatment for PKD patients because it can not solve the root problem, but it dose has some merits.

One core concept in homeopathy is that there is a recovery system in the body which can help regulate internal disorder and the body’s self-repairing ability. For PKD patients, it means that the kidneys have the ability to repair damaged renal tissues and the immune system has ability to regulate immune disorder and immune dysfunction and recover normal immune system conditions.

However for PKD patients, homeopathy can not help that much since their kidney functions will be impaired continuously with the progressive increase and enlargement of renal cysts in the kidneys.

In a word, homeopathy does have some health benefits for PKD patients, but it is not enough and more effective medications and treatment are needed.
