Kidney Stones

Kidney Stones

Preventing stones is the painless way “to go”. Plenty of water keeps the blood thin and the urine diluted so that mineral or chemical compounds do not precipitate into stones.

Another preventative is to take enough Calcium with Magnesium and vitamin B6.

Eating too much meat raises the stone-forming oxalates and calcium in the urine. In addition, natural fiber in the diet helps sop up excess fat and toxic materials. Products like Psyllium Hulls, Nature’s Three should help. Increase your dietary intake of natural, whole foods.

There can be three causes of kidney stones:
* too much acid in the kidneys
* chronic diarrhea and
* too much animal protein.

What are the symptoms of kidney stones?

You can have a stone in your kidney for years and not know it’s there. But, when it starts to move or becomes very large, you may have symptoms. Symptoms of a kidney stone include:

  • Feeling pain in your lower back or side of your body. This pain can start as a dull ache that may come and go. It can also become severe and result in a trip to the emergency room.
  • Having nausea and/or vomiting with the pain.
  • Seeing blood in your urine.
  • Feeling pain when urinating.
  • Being unable to urinate.
  • Feeling the need to urinate more often.
  • Fever or chills.
  • Having urine that smells bad or looks cloudy.

Smaller kidney stones may not cause pain or other symptoms. These “silent stones” pass out of your body in your urine.

For those suffering from stones, be very cautious. Unless you fully understand your condition, and know precisely what to do, self-treatment is not safe. Using ultra sound to break up stones can cause high blood pressure if they damage the kidneys.

The ripe berries are used. They can be eaten raw (hard to do because they are so strong), made into a tea, or dried carefully to maintain the aromatic oils and encapsulated. They are effective against a uric acid buildup in the blood, which can settle out in the toes as gout. The berries also settle the stomach and help prevent flatulence.
