Experts are treating the points that connect the kidneys after diagnosis

In celebration of World Kidney Day, remembered on Thursday (14), the Brazilian Association of Acupuncture in Rio de Janeiro (RJ-ABA) drew attention to the lack of disclosure of the federal government for the balance of chronic kidney diseases with the aid of acupuncture treatment.

The Brazilian Association of Nephrology (SBN) estimates that about 10 million Brazilians are affected by chronic kidney disease, the number tends to increase.

For the physiotherapist and acupuncturist, Márcio de Luna, the alternative treatment would help slow the progression of chronic renal failure, avoiding hemodialysis.

Acupuncture identifies whether the patient has a kidney disease by pulse through the radial artery or the language. From the diagnosis we treat the points that connect the kidneys and prescribe herbal medicines. You can relate to acupuncture medical, Luna said.

Acupuncture was introduced in Brazil in 1993 by Frederick Spaeth. He is the founder of the Brazilian Association of Acupuncture (ABA).
