I was introduced to Chinese herbal medicine two years ago. At that time my inherited chronic kidney disease took a turn for the worse and my western doctor said I needed to start preparing for dialysis. I have been under care for kidney disease for years, and my disease followed the usual course of getting worse over time. There are no specific treatments for kidney disease so all the western doctors do is monitor the kidney function.
I began treatment with herbs, and have continued during these two years. My kidney function has been monitored as usual. Since I started the treatment my function first actually went up (pretty much unheard of!) and now has been stable for the past 8 months. The herbs are not meant to cure my condition, but in my estimation they have given me a way to stay healthy longer when western doctors had no suggestions at all. As you can imagine, the herbs have made a huge and positive difference in my outlook toward life.
