Acupuncture for Kidney Disease

Most nephrologists only see kidney function decline in the vast majority of their patients. However, treatment at Orlando Acupuncture is anything but standard. Our most common therapy, acupuncture, has shown remarkable results in reversing kidney damage. Acupuncture is well known for relieving many symptoms such as pain, fatigue, and anxiety. Research shows that in patients with CKD, acupuncture can improve renal function, reduce proteinuria, moderate hypertension, correct anemia. In addition acupuncture has been shown to help control many hemodialysis-related complications such as uremic pruritus, insomnia and fatigue.

The significant results measured in clinical research include improved quality of life, showing improvements in pain, fatigue, and sleep. These benefits combined with improved renal function give our patients a renewed sense of hope.
