Ginger Therapy for Stage 4 Kidney Failure

Ginger Therapy for Stage 4 Kidney FailureSome people claim ginger therapy is one permanent cure for kidney failure patients. Stage 4 Kidney Failure means kidneys are only working at 15%~30%. Can ginger therapy help treat stage 4 kidney disease?

Ginger has been used as herbal medicine for more than 2,000 years. In our daily life, ginger is one common condiment. Because ginger is indeed rich in various nutrients such as protein, vitamins, carotene, iron, phosphorus, and so on, it indeed can help preserve kidney function through the following aspects.

1. Fight against inflammation

In many cases, kidney damage is related to inflammatory reactions, so it is important to inhibit inflammation and protect the remaining kidney functioning. Ginger is thought to be one natural anti-inflammatory drug. Therefore, patients can add some ginger or turmeric into their diet plan.

2. Improve appetite

In stage 4 kidney failure, patients often lose their appetite that may induce malnutrition and other problems easily. Ginger can stimulate the secretion of saliva, gastric juice and digestive juices, so eating ginger can help boost patients’ appetite. Finally, patients will have more desire to eat foods, and then, they will have enough energy.

3. Have the antioxidant property

Gingerol and diphenyl heptane compounds in ginger have strong antioxidant and removing free radical effects. This is also helpful to protect the residual kidney functioning tissues.

Does the above analysis mean patients with stage 4 kidney failure can get cure from ginger therapy? It is impossible. This is because ginger is only able to boost patients’ overall health condition and it is far from enough to cure kidney failure. Besides, if patients have allergic reaction or high phosphorus level, they should avoid ginger.

If you want to consume the ginger safely and healthily, you can consult the doctor online to determine how much you can eat one time.
