Help Remedy Kidney Stones Using These 8 Tips

kidney-pain

Kidney stones, while uncomfortable, are more and more common these days, affecting about 1 in 11 Americans. Although they are more prevalent in men, women can also develop kidney stones. Having kidney stones is no walk in the park. In fact, it can be very painful, so let’s take a look at what they are and naturally remedies to help treat them.

 

What Are Kidney Stones?

 

Kidney stones, which are small, hard mineral deposits in the kidneys, are made up of unprocessed minerals and acid salts, which form when urine becomes over concentrated with them. They are more likely to form in those who don’t regularly drink a lot of water. It is important that kidney stones leave the body because they can cause further infection and discomfort if they remain inside.

 

What Causes Kidney Stones?

 

The leading cause of kidney stones is the lack of water or being constantly dehydrated. The body needs water to balance the pH level in the kidneys. If the person lacks water, then the uric acid in the urine cannot be diluted, making the pH level in the kidneys very acidic. The highly acidic environment helps the formation of kidney stones.  They can also form if the urine has more crystal forming compounds than the fluid in the urine can dilute.

 

8 Natural Remedies To Help Kidney Stones

 

Lemon & Olive Oil:

An easy and effective remedy is drinking cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Mix 2oz of each together and drink it straight, following it up with a 12oz glass of distilled or alkaline water. After 30 minutes, mix the juice of half a lemon and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 12oz of distilled or alkaline water. Drink this solution. Repeat this process once every hour until your symptoms improve.

Drink Water…A Lot of It:

Hydrate, hydrate, and hydrate some more. When you have kidney stones, it is important to continually replenish the body with enough fluids to flush out the minerals and other substances that cause stones to form. If your urine is dark, then you need more water. If your urine is clear, then you are drinking enough water. It is recommended to drink 8-10 8oz glasses of water every day. You can also drink half your body weight in ounces to ensure you are properly hydrated for normal functions. If you weigh 150lbs and divide that by 2 to get 75, you should be drinking at least 75oz of water per day.

Eat Watermelon:

Watermelon is a great natural remedy because the potassium in it can help treat kidney stones that are comprised of magnesium phosphates, calcium, and carbonates. Potassium is an essential mineral for proper kidney health. Additionally, watermelon contains a lot of water, which helps to flush kidney stones out of your system.

Kidney Beans

Aside from resembling the shape of kidneys, kidney beans are beneficial for most kidney problems. Remove fresh beans from inside the pods and boil them until they are tender. Strain the liquid into a pot, allow it to cool, and then strain it into a pot again. Drink this liquid a few times throughout the day to help relieve symptoms of kidney stones. Don’t keep the liquid for more than 24 hours because it will lose its healing properties. You can eat the beans in a salad or soup.

Pomegranate Juice:

Pomegranate juice and pomegranate seeds may help prevent the formation of certain types of kidney stones. Drink one or two servings of pomegranate juice every day to help relieve symptoms of kidney stones. Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants and that can help protect the body from damaging free radicals.

Drink Wheatgrass Juice:

Wheatgrass juice, which is rich in chlorophyll, is a great natural remedy for treating kidney stones. You can also mix wheatgrass juice with 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of fresh basil juice for maximum healing benefits.

Change Your Diet:

It can be beneficial to cut out energy drinks, soda, processed foods, alcohol, meats, and dairy products because these unhealthy foods can contribute to the growth of kidney stones. It is optimal to eat fresh fruits and vegetables, in addition to nuts and seeds, to help alkalize the body and promote overall health.

The doctor said that both glands had stones in them but they only removed the one. I still am having problems with the other gland and in constant pain. I have tried a lot of things to try to rid it or to ease the pain. I just want to be rid of the stones, the swelling, and the pain for good without having the gland removed. So again will this work for salivary stones.

    Q: I am a 29 year old woman currently living with one functioning kidney. Both kidneys were found to be "swollen" many months ago due to polyps that had formed inside my uterus. These issues were treated and now I'm interested in treating adult acne that has been forming on my cheeks for many years. My nephrologists told me not to take any herbs especially in capsule form because it may affect my kidneys. What is your opinion about taking herbs for people with one functioning kidney (or which article should I refer to)? Is there another alternative to treating acne without taking herbs. I am now greatly increasing my water intake and drinking one cup of unsweetened cranberry juice every day.

    A:

    If drugs don't hurt one kidney, how in the world could a plant hurt it? Herbs are 1 million times safer than drugs. The choice is yours however to make on taking herbs. We deem them safe.

    Q: My fiance is diabetic and his doctor checked his kidney function and told him that his kidney is failing and he needed a kidney biopsy due to increased creatinine levels. Also he has high potassium levels and for this the doctor indicated a low potassium diet. We would like advice since all the doctors say the kidney cannot regenerate itself and the next step is dialysis. Please advise.

    A:

    The doctors are right under Western standards and information, no body part can regenerate itself with the USE OF DRUGS, but not so with herbs. You CAN regenerate every organ in the body with herbs. The doctors can't help him, but natural healing protocols can. I highly recommend he start with the Pancreas Kit and Regimen (which comes with a dietary guideline. Western doctors are insane. You couldn't pay me to visit a doctor after learning all I've learned. Doctors do more harm than good. Get your fiance on the herbs as soon as possible.
