TCM can take effects on lining cell which secretes cyst fluids constantly. TCM is proved to alleviate Polycystic Nephritis in a large degree and leads no relapse. However, the TCM soup tastes bitter which makes many patients feel sick.
● Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the new development of TCM, which grinds the loose herbs super-finely and collect the micro-size powder into medical bag which will be used to hot compress on waist area. With the help of osmosis devices, the ingredients of herbs will permeate into kidney lesions and take effects directly.
