What is the relationship between Acupuncture and Kidney Disease?

Acupuncture is based on the theory of Qi, which operates through body just like rivers flow through the earth. A lattice of channels forms a web of Qi that unites all parts of the body. While acupuncture is applied to regulate the movement of Qi which is responsible for the circulation of blood. Blood is responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to each and every cell. Blood also carries away metabolic debris. So acupuncture affects us globally both by activating the delivery system that distributes the food, and by encouraging the hauling away of waste. Acupuncture supports healthy cellular nutrition and detoxification.

Acupuncture is applied to ease symptoms of patients with CKD like back pain, headaches, muscle pain, allergies and other immune system dysfunctions, digestive problems fatigue, insomnia, asthma, depression, high blood pressure, diarrhea, irregularities in the heartbeat, vision and hearing problems, rheumatism, circulatory problems, etc.

There are a series of channels run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. Once there is obstruction in Channels or meridians, our health will lose balance.

What are the progresses of Acupuncture?

The patient will be asked to lie down, either face-up, face-down or on his/her side, depending on where the needless are inserted. The acupuncturist should use single-use disposable sterile needles. As each needle is inserted the patient should feel them, but initially without pain. However, when the needle reaches the right depth there should be a deep aching sensation. Sometimes the needles are heated or stimulated with electricity after insertion. Once inserted, the needles will remain there for about twenty minutes.

Is it safe to take Acupuncture?

Generally speaking, it is safe to receive acupuncture. In 1996, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration began classifying acupuncture needles as medical instruments, and it now requires that acupuncturists use only sterile, disposable needles. Also, acupuncturists will swab the acupuncture areas first with an antiseptic, so there is very little risk of infection. It's very important to visit a licensed practitioner, however, because poorly sterilized needles can transmit infectious diseases.

The most common side effects with acupuncture are soreness, slight bleeding, irritation or bruising at the needle site. Some people may feel tired or lightheaded after a session. In very rare cases, more serious complications can occur if the acupuncture needles pierce the kidney, lungs or other organs.

Moreover, acupuncture isn't for everyone. People who have a bleeding disorder or who are taking blood thinners (such as Heparin and Coumadin) should not have the treatment. It's also not recommended for people who have pacemakers, implanted electrical devices or infusion pumps.
