Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Please send your USG report because medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.

Gastric and kidney stones both of these problems of yours can be cured permanently with homoeopathy. Increased frequency of urine can be due to urine infection or blockage of urine passage by the stone. Urine routine examination will provide the status of infection, while ultrasound will tell if stone is blocking the path or not. So review with the reports.

My father is 84 years old and having multiple disease conditions: He suffers from severe anxiety. He gets tensed in very simple incidents of life and thinks a lot about all simple incidents which we in general do not give much attention to. He also suffers from hypertension. Severe hearing loss with damage of tympanic membrane and infection in one ear. Severe spondylitis with disc degeneration and nerve compression with back pain from the same. Painful leg due to sciatica. Blind from glaucoma in right eye and age related macular degeneration in the left eye. Tendency of prostate enlargement, and pain and burning with urination at least twice a year. He also suffers from GI ailments like gas, indigestion, and very soft stools every now and then. Due to his frail and weak physic, we mostly try to avoid any allopathy medications sans emergency situations. For a long period of time, he is taking essentia area once a day and viscum pentarkan once a day. For the last few weeks he is also taking alfalfa tonic. Presently, his blood pressure is mostly normal or very little above normal. I would like to know what should be my approach to his treatment? What medicine regimen should he follow? I would also like to know if there is any medications that can arrest the progression of age related macular degeneration. And if there is any medication to arrest his hearing loss. He seems to get disturbed mostly by the fact that he is gradually losing his vision and listening ability. Thanks

Actually you need to consult a rehabilitation physician in your nearby area, as this case has multiple problems and needs proper rehabilitation. All these problems are inter-linked and solving one problem can cure another one. Adding any type of drug (allopathic or non-allopathic) will add to more problems. While I was in aiims, new delhi, I have seen many cases like this, in which solving a single problem cures many problems. Consult me in private. Do not worry, we can solve problem.

Mr Ayyaz, overflow incontinence is a condition of faulty bladder emptying, which leads to bladder being overfilled and it overflows(leaks). This needs catheter insertion and later treatment of the underlying condition. Please be clear of what problem you have. If kidney swelling has disappeared, thats great, but just confirm with a followup scan. None of this has anything to do with protein intake or building muscle.

The posterior wall of bladder (back side) has got the trigone of bladder which is highly sensitive area. Ordinarily when bladder gets enough volume of urine stretch receptors from this area send signals to brain to give an urge for urination. Sometimes due to infections or inflammations the sensitivity is more so the frequency of calls is increased. This may also happen due a small calculus (stone) in the bladder which comes in contact with the posterior wall when you lie down in bed so the area is irritated, while this does not happen when you are sitting or standing. Try to lie down on your belly and this problem should be relieved. Get a urine exam done and also an ultrasound of abdomen for kidney ureter and bladder. Let us see if there is anything suggestive.

My wife age 25 years feels frequent urine & it feels like that urine can not be controlled.

Dear , she may have infection in urine so get it tested. If pus cells are more than five then she will have to take antibiotic like ofloxacin 2oo mg twice a day 1 hour before meals for 15 day and for immediate relief she can take urispas or flavospas three times a day 3-5 days. If she does not have infection then make sure she does not have constipation, then she should have sonography done with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness on full bladder and post-void residual urine volume and then let me the results.

Kidney stones are formed due to various reasons. But above the so called reasons like dehydration, dietary factors, gout etc all the persons who are exposed to such conditions are not getting kidney stones and it proves it is due to the tendency of ones genetic make up which causes a proneness to get kidney stones and it has to be treated with homoeopathic medicine to get a permanent cure. Moreover before that the site of the stone and the type of the stone with its size etc has to be assessed with usg kub to make the treatment scientific and effective.

Going by the reports, you need to treat both simultaneously and avoid coitus till future samples from both of you show no growth on culture. Treatment from your physician with a drug from the most sensitive to antibiotic group for sufficient duration is mandatory.
