The Power of Chinese Medicine for Kidney Disease

The Challenge of Chronic Kidney Disease in Japan

Chronic kidney disease is a disease in which the glomerulus, which performs filtration, and the renal tubules, through which filtered substances pass, become sluggish, causing proteins and other substances necessary for the body to leak out of the body, while toxic substances and excess water are retained in the body. The number of patients with chronic kidney disease in Japan is more than 13 million (about 1 in 8 adults), and the number of patients with chronic kidney disease is increasing due to the growing elderly population and the increasing prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, there are few subjective symptoms, and many people may first notice the disease during physical examinations and other tests. However, common symptoms such as nocturia and swelling may be hidden behind kidney disease.

Although Western medicine offers treatment options such as dialysis and transplantation, there is no direct means of delaying or preventing the progression of kidney disease to the point where it can be treated.

Kidney problems must be treated promptly to prevent them from progressing. The kidneys play a very important role in filtering blood collected from all over the body, removing excess fluid and waste from the blood, and cleaning the blood.

It is important to have regular checkups for early detection and early treatment. Be aware of the importance of early prevention.

Please take advantage of the wisdom and power of Chinese herbal medicine to protect the health of the "kidney," the reservoir of vital energy.

Chronic Kidney Disease Seminars are held as needed.

In February 2024, we held a "Health Seminar to Protect Healthy Kidneys" in Shinbashi, Tokyo.

We invited a dialysis specialist and a professional in the field of medicinal herbs to talk about the secrets of protecting kidney health, and many participants expressed their satisfaction with the seminar.

[The participants were very satisfied with the lecture and said it was "very good.]

I was very impressed with the lecture. I thought that I should be careful about it.

I could understand the relationship between glomeruli and diabetes. I understood the importance of adjusting my lifestyle, and I will be more careful.

I learned a lot of useful information such as how to use specific dietary medicines for menopausal symptoms and kidneys. I would like to use it in my daily life.

I could understand the function of kidney and its relation to the five organs. I will review my diet with reference to the recipes for kidney yang and kidney yin. Thank you very much.
