Natural Remedies & Diet Plans For Kidney Stones

 

Is that sharp pain in your side and difficulty urinating caused by a kidney stone? Read on to know more about Kidney Stones and natural ways to potentially heal them.

What are Kidney stones?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kidney stones or renal calculi are hard deposits of salts and minerals formed inside the urinary system. Kidney stones are very common and there are different sizes and shapes of the kidney stones. They lead to a lot of pain in the back and while urinating. Stones are formed due to the chemicals circulating in our blood such as oxalic acid, calcium, phosphate, uric acid, etc. An overactive parathyroid gland also leads to the formation of stones. Kidney stones may also cause lesions while passing through the urinary tract. When the stone reaches the bladder, it causes inflammation of the bladder.

Types of Kidney stones

 

 

 

 

 

 

All kidney stones are made of different materials or substances. Depending upon the substance of kidney stones, they are of different types. The common types of stones are:

Calcium Stones

They are the most common type of kidney stones. They are composed of calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate. Calcium stones may occur due to the consumption of high oxalate foods such as chocolate, potato chips, peanuts, spinach, and beet. Oxalate is present in these foods, thus reducing the intake of these foods can help in reducing the risk of these stones. Also, diseases related to the small intestine may increase the tendency for the formation of calcium oxalate stones. Calcium stones usually do not dissolve in acidified urine. https://www.biogetica.com/how-to-find-natural-kidney-stone-remedies-treatments-cures#selectkit-related-list

Uric Acid Stones

Uric acid stones are commonly seen in men. People suffering from gout and the ones under chemotherapy are also at risk of developing uric acid stones. They are formed when urine becomes over acidic. Uric acid stones are caused due to difficulty in metabolizing purines. Thus, taking too much purine or proteins can increase the chances of developing uric acid stones. Animal food such as meat, fish, and shellfish should be avoided.

Struvite Stones

Struvite stones are found in rare cases. These stones are prevalent among women who are suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections. Struvite stones can grow very large and may obstruct the urinary tract. This obstruction can also lead to infection of the kidneys. These stones can dissolve in vitamin C acidified urine.

Cystine Stones

Cystine stones are the rarest of stones. They can occur both in men and women suffering from the genetic disorder cystinuria. Cystinuria is a hereditary condition caused due to the inability to absorb cystine. Cystine is an acid that is present in the body and it gets released from the kidneys through the urine. Children usually suffer from cystine stones.

Symptoms Of Kidney Stones

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Common Symptoms Are:

  • Sudden pain in the lower part of the abdomen radiating to the back or while passing urine is the most common symptom of kidney stones.
  • In some cases, urine may also be accompanied by blood due to damage to the lining of the walls of the ureters.

  • Pain may be excruciating, severe, progressive, colicky or pricking in nature.
  • Urinary infection is a common issue caused by kidney stones. 
  • Nausea and vomiting may be present.
  • Increase in the frequency and urgency of urination.
  • The obstruction caused due to stones may lead to incontinence and urine passing in drops.
  • Painful micturition. 
  • Blood or abnormal colour of urine may be observed.
  • Burning may occur in some cases, due to the accumulation of minerals in the body.
  • There may be swelling of feet or edema due to less urination.

Diagnosis Of Kidney Stones

The doctor may diagnose kidney stones with clinical examination and from the symptoms of severe tenderness in the abdomen and back. If the stones are large, persistent or recurrent, there may be signs of other kidney disorders including kidney failure.

The doctor may suggest the below tests for confirming the diagnosis:

  • Routine urine analysis may reveal the type of stones. It may also show levels of calcium, oxalate and phosphate, or if there is any loss of protein.
  • Ultrasound scan.
  • X-ray of the abdomen.
  • CT scan of the abdomen.
  • MRI of the abdomen.
  • Intravenous pyelography.
  • Retrograde pyelogram.

Complications Associated With Kidney Stones

  • Recurrent kidney stones.
  • Urinary tract infection.
  • Obstruction of the ureter and acute unilateral obstructive uropathy.
  • Kidney damage which affects the functioning of the kidneys along with hydronephrosis.

What Are The Different Ways To Possibly Treat Kidney Stones?

Conventional Treatment 

Treatment for kidney stones depends on the type and cause of the stone formed. Most types of stones can be treated without surgery. Medicines for decreasing/  breaking down or eliminating the kidney stones may be prescribed depending upon the type of stones.

The most popular US FDA approved conventional treatment for kidney stones include diuretics, phosphate solutions, antibiotics (for struvite stones), allopurinol (for uric acid stones), and substances that help to alkalize the urine (including sodium bicarbonate or sodium citrate). These medicines help to control your symptoms in the initial stage, but these drugs do not provide any help in addressing the actual cause or avoiding recurrence. This is because kidney stones progress due to a weakened renal system. There are no pharmaceutical drugs that specifically help to boost your immune system and help proper metabolism or improve the urinary system. The conventional drugs are used to merely suppress the symptoms during an episode, however, they do least to prevent any further recurrence. 

Other conventional treatments used in cases of severe COPD include supplemental oxygen therapy. Antibiotics have a temporary effect and their dosage needs to be increased. Albuterol is one of the drugs that can be used to provide relief and prevent airway obstruction. These medicines are also associated with a host of side-effects such as nausea, vomiting, allergic reactions, chest pain, dizziness, palpitations and headache.

Natural Remedies For Kidney Stones

Natural therapies for kidney stones include Ayurveda, homeopathy or dietary supplements that focus on addressing the root cause of the issue. A kidney stone is caused when the renal system is not able to function optimally. Natural products are approved by the FDA for the treatment of Kidney stones. Natural supplements are believed to balance and improve the functioning of the renal system and support the immune system. 

Natural ingredients like:

  1. Boerhaavia Diffusas – This herb is believed to possess diuretic, anti-bacterial, antioxidant, hepatoprotective and immunomodulatory properties. It is considered a rejuvenative herb in ayurvedic texts and it may be an excellent remedy for the heart and kidneys. Research indicates that B. diffusa may protect against hyperoxaluric oxidative stress and renal cell injury in kidney stones. [1]
  2. Bergenia ligulata – This herb has been extensively studied for its role in ameliorating urinary stones, painful micturition and calculi dissolution. Both in vitro and in vivo evaluations have highlighted that the herb demonstrates antiurolithic, diuretic, hypermagneseuric and antioxidant effects, and may prove beneficial in the treatment of urolithiasis. [2]
  3. Asphaltum (Shilajit) – Traditionally, this herb is considered to benefit the brain, nerves, kidneys, bladder, reproductive organs and endocrine glands. A clinical evaluation to study the anti-oxidative effects of Shilajit in a group of urolithiasis patients indicated that the extract seemingly prevented oxidative stress induced stony concretions in the bladder or urinary tract. The study also highlighted that shilajit may be of value in the regeneration of damaged renal tissue. [3]
  4. Tribulus Terrestris This herb is considered an extremely powerful medicinal plant in ayurvedic and Chinese medicine and is said to boost immunity, fight stress, increase energy, endurance and vitality, and protect the heart, prostate and urinary system. An In vitro study indicated the T. terrestris not only had the potential to inhibit formation and the growth of CaOx crystals, but also protected the cells from harmful agents.Studies suggest that this medicinal plant may help kidney and urinary stones.

Diet Recommendations For Kidney Stones

Your diet plan will depend upon the type of stones. For example, how much calcium, sodium, oxalate, or protein you can eat. Below given are the diet recommendations as per the type of kidney stones.

(A) For Calcium Oxalate Stones:

  • Avoid foods such as peanuts, rhubarb, wheat bran, spinach and nuts to reduce the amount of oxalate in your urine. 
  • Reduce sodium intake by avoiding canned, processed, packaged and junk foods. Avoid seasonings, condiments and meat that contain sodium.
  • Reduce protein intake such as milk, cheese, other dairy products, eggs, beef, chicken, pork, fish and shellfish. You may instead consider having plant-based proteins such as beans, lentils and dried peas that are high in proteins and low in sodium.
  • You can consume a small amount of calcium from low-oxalate, plant-based foods such as cereals, bread, and vegetables which can support your bones. Calcium if taken in moderation can help to block the other substances in the digestive tract that may cause stones.

 (B) For Calcium Phosphate Stones

  • Reduce sodium intake by avoiding canned, processed, packaged and junk foods. Also avoid seasonings, condiments and meat that contain sodium.
  • Avoid protein intake including milk, cheese, other dairy products, eggs, beef, chicken, pork, fish and shellfish. You may instead consider having plant-based proteins such as beans, lentils, soy, almonds, sunflower seeds, and dried peas that are high in proteins and low in sodium.
  • You can consume a small amount of calcium from low-oxalate, plant-based foods such as cereals, bread and vegetables which can support your bones. Calcium if taken in moderation can help to block the other substances in the digestive tract that may cause stones.

 (C) For Uric Acid Stones

  • Avoid protein intake including milk, cheese, other dairy products, eggs, beef, chicken, pork, fish and shellfish. You may instead consider having plant-based proteins such as beans, lentils, soy, almonds, sunflower seeds, and dried peas that are high in proteins and low in sodium.
  • Consider losing weight if you are overweight especially if you have had uric acid stones in the past.

(D) Cystine stones

  • Drinking at least 2-3 liters of water every day can help to prevent the recurrence of cystine stones.
