I have kidney stone. Which is the best treatment to cure this?
Dear , it depends upon the type of stone, its location and the symptoms. There are various measures and treatments in ayurveda to gradually dissolve or crush the stone and remove it and also reduce the tendency of forming them in the first place. Surgical methods include cystoscopy and uretroscopic removal of the stone and non invasive methods like lithotripsy. I suggest kindly share your ultrasound report along with your urine analysis. Best of luck.

Gall stone has nothing to do with urinary problem. Urinary frequency is due to either increased water intake and increased output, or due to anxiety, urinary infection, or other problem, which depends on the associated problems. If gall stone surgery has been advised, you may go ahead, based on the surgeon's advice.

Dear , I am sure the lady you are inquiring about must have been investigated so post all reports along with pictures of sonography. It is very likely that she has bladder neck obstruction where medical treatment can be tried but surgery is best and permanent solution. Meanwhile she must drink plenty of fluids especially in hot weather or on a tour.

Kidney stones, sugar and uric acid at the same time command ayurvedic medicine so as to stay away from side effects. All these conditions are better treated ayurvedic tablets. Stones will be dissolved and excreted through urine in a painless manner. Just let me know your age, height and weight so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

A child passing urine so frequently is a case most probably of Urinary tract infection, which has increased propensity to affect females due to short distance between external urethral meatus & Urinary bladder (of 3.5 cm).This short distance makes them more vulnerable for urinary infections and it is advisable to consult a paediatrician at the earliest. It is NOT NORMAL.

Kidney Stones - How Ayurveda Helps in Treating it

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that focuses on improving your overall well-being, rather than just focusing on the symptoms of the disease. Being a complete natural based method, it has no side effects. Ayurvedic remedies for kidney stones emphasize on improving your lifestyle and diet to keep the energy balance in your body.

The causes of kidney stones range from factors such as an imbalanced diet, sedentary lifestyle and spicy food. Less water consumption is also a major cause of kidney stones. These factors cause problems in the various doshas in the human body, leading to diseases. It leads to toxin formation in the body called ama. These toxins trickle down to the urinary tract, causing crystals to form, thus leading to kidney stones.

Ayurvedic remedies consist of using diuretic herbs to dissolve the stones. Once the stones are dissolved, it is then recommended to use various cleansing techniques such as Panchakarma, which helps in strengthening the body. It is recommended to drink at least 2 to 3 liters of water daily and urinate whenever the urge occurs.

If the bladder stores the urine for a long time, then it leads to kidney stones. You need to cut down on foods that contain salt in excess. Add more green vegetables to your diet as they provide the body with essential nutrients such as calcium.

A comprehensive list of the changes you should make are:
1. Avoid eating dry and heavy foods
2. Limit consumption of coffee, tea, pickle based foods and cold drinks
3. Restrict consumption of non-vegetarian foods such meat and poultry
4. Drink adequate water regularly
5. Consume parboiled rice, brown rice and ginger
6. Consume lots of fruit juices, soup and water
7. Increase water consumption during summer months
8. Don t suppress the urge to urinate

Some herbal remedies to control kidney stones are combining mehendi with water to form a decoction and then consuming it. Increase consumption of horse-gram as it decreases risk of kidney stones. Make sure you exercise on a regular basis as it improves your overall well-being and keeps you healthy.
