Many patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease are curious whether Chinese Herb Medicine is Safe for PKD. Does it have side effects? In order to make PKD patients relax, our Chinese medicine experts introduce a principle of prescribing Chinese herb medicine. Read on to know more about it.
Chinese herb medicine that we use rarely has side effects. This is because
Chinese medical science stresses a principle named Jun (Its literal meaning is
King.), Chen (literally means minister), Zuo (literally means junior minister)
and Shi (literally means messenger, coordinator). Jun, Chen, Zuo and Shi don’t
refer to four herbs but four kinds of herbs in one prescription. For example,
Jun could include one or two herbs, and Zuo could include three or even nine
herbs. Jun, Chen, Zuo or Shi has its own effects and all of them cooperate with
each other so as to increase curative effects and reduce side effects.
Jun signifies the major herbs. They are the most important herbs in one
prescription to treat the disease and main symptoms.
Chen assists Jun to increase its curative effect and treat the minor
Zuo is in charge of removing or reducing the side effects of Jun and
Shi, like a messenger or coordinator, guides ingredients of herb medicines to
reach lesion or nidus in the body and also coordinate all herb medicines’
Therefore, a good prescription of Chinese medicine rarely has side effects.
Of course, if Chinese medicines are wrongly prescribed, they will lead to bad
results. The prescription for treating PKD in our hospital was prescribed by a
group of senior Chinese medicine experts and it also has been applied into
clinical practices for many years. Clinical practices show that there exist some
people who have no response to such medicines but no case has side effects.
Don't worry, Chinese herb medicine is safe for Polycystic Kidney Disease
(PKD). It won't further damage your kidneys or stimulate the cysts to grow. If
