Here are cause, symptoms and treatments of Kidney Stone

Hello, everyone, I’m Dr. Sanket Gupta I’m a practicing homeopathic consultant at Satyaniketan Motibagh.
I have been into homeopathic practice since last seven years. I specialize in all kinds of the chronic and acute disease for males females and children. I especially have interests in female disorders like PCOD and fibroids Uterus. I have a specialization in piles, kidney stones diabetes-like cell disorders, psychological disorders and even neurological conditions. Today I would like to talk about a condition called kidney stones which is a very common condition these days.

Every now and then we have a patient who is suffering from kidney stones. Why does it happen? See, usually, a kidney stone would have developed when people who have very less drinking water habit they do they would drink only one or one half liters of water a day. Your kidney is your filtration you know your filtration equipment but if you do not provide enough water it won’t filter well so once it does not fit her well the large molecules especially the calcium carbonate molecules they start accumulating and that’s when a stone forms. people have habits specially children have habits of you know controlling their urine and not going to the urine at the right time and when they feel the urge. so what happens is that creates a back pressure to your kidney and the pelvis and again the waste would get accumulated and resulting in form of a kidney stone.

Any patient who complains of a lower back pain here in this area flank area be at right side or the left side or with a pain you know referring to the right side of the abdominal the left side to side of the abdomen the left side of the bargain with a complaint of difficulty in passage of urine, painful urination there is always a doubt of kidney stone. Then and the first thing we ask a patient is to get an ultrasound or an X-ray done and depending upon the side of the calculus for the stone we decide the treatment and as in homeopathy you must be aware homeopathy is a science where very small sweet pills with a very gentle. You know gentle behavior and gentle assessment. what you know what would help curing the condition there are many many wonderful remedies for kidney stones medicines like Nux Vomica, Lycopodium, APIs malefic Beriberi’s Vulgaris, Colocynths, Cantharis and many more they have wonderful wonderful results in kidney stones.

I myself have my in my clinic I have you know I have the experience of getting a maximum of seventeen mm stones outside out of the body of a male patient of 45 year old male patient and that too in the seven days so that is how fast the homeopathy medicine can help curing kidney stones. It is a condition where usually it is advised that you need to get in surgery done but with homeopathy you can avoid that surgery and you know with the most gentle effect and without any harm the patient can be cured of his stones. Stones were passed generously through the urine and even the tendency few people have tendencies to develop stones every now and then that tendency can we check with homeopathy as well and even generations to come so I would definitely recommend everybody to opt for homeopathy for once in all for any kind of disease and especially for kidney stones.

If you have any query regarding kidney stones and I would really help you know I would be really glad to help you all and you can concern the on Lybrate.

You have not mentioned your age and whether you masturbate or not. I guess you must be young and must not be used to masturbating. As one attains youth, the sperm production starts and as a result these produced sperms have to come out of the body after a capacity is exceeded. During puberty though the erections start happenning and sperms are produced round the clock, still society allows marriage only after a particular age. So it is natural that most men who have attained puberty and youth, find an outlet for these sperms and for their sexual thoughts, by masturbation. Masturbation is healthy and even animals are known to do it. May be you are not masturbating enough and hence your body makes the semen discharge at night when during your sleep the erections happen and you get sexual dreams. This is quite natural. Rather than waking up to a night fall and the mess of the secretions soiling the bedsheets, it is better to masturbate and enjoy the sexual feelings that one experiences while masturbating and touching massaging the penis. The day you start masturbating few times a week, this night fall will disappear.

Dilemma, whether Ayurveda Treatment is safe for Kidney patients !

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad

Now a days many people are suffering from kidney diseases like, chronic renal failure. As the name itself suggests, function of kidney gets deteriorates progressively. The basic unit of kidney, called nephrons, start getting damaged and unable to filter the urine, due to that, the wastes of body start getting accumulated with in the blood itself. And that recollection is very dangerous and life threatening. This could be diagnosed through blood test where s. Creatinine and urea gets high and if creatinine gets very high, doctors recommend dialysis
When patient/attendant asks his doctor whether he may try ayurveda medicines, most of the doctors say them strictly not to go for ayurveda even without what knowing that what exactly ayurveda does in ckd.

Here, I am writing this post just to build some confidence. I can assure to all kidney patients, all of you can go for ayurvedic treatment without any fear and doubt, as there is no harm at all with ayurvedic medicines.
If your ayurveda doctor is pretty much clear about your disease and line of treatment, there would be no further damage to the kidneys.
A good ayurveda doctor knows that, in case of renal dysfunction, heavy metallic preparations are prohibited like the combinations of lead, mercury, arsenic. As these are very difficult for weak kidney to filter.

Even though the damaged nephrons can never be repaired, but the function of remaining nephrons can be restored so that over all kidney function can be revived. And this is really effective. Ayurveda doctor would prefer to prescribe herbal and mineral preparations.

Therefore. I would strongly suggest to start ayurveda in any types of renal diseases. I can assure you the quality of life would surely improve.

If your child wets the bed at night, one needs to understand a couple of things. First and foremost, one needs to understand that there will be no benefit from blaming the child. He or she is not doing it on purpose. It is just that the child does not have enough control over the urinary bladder. Normally a child develops this control by the age of 4. In some cases, this may be delayed. This does not in any way mean that the child wets the bed deliberately. It is just that he or she is unable to control the muscles of the bladder. As a parent, you need to understand that. Also, make sure that the child does not take too much of liquids at night just before going to bed. Another thing that helps is that he or she urinates just before going to bed. Homeopathy is a very effective natural treatment for enuresis. The homeopathic remedies for bedwetting are perfectly safe. These natural homeopathic remedies do not have any side effects at all. Safety of the medicines is a major issue when you are to give any medicine to your child. Therefore it is of utmost importance that the medicines should be completely safe. Homeopathic remedies are known to be perfectly safe and have been tried by millions of patients all over the world over the last 2 centuries. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects

Focus on limiting the sodium in your diet. Extra sodium causes you to lose more calcium in your urine, putting you at risk for developing another stone. Limit your sodium to 2, 000 milligrams each day. There are many sources of hidden sodium such as canned or commercially processed foods as well as restaurant-prepared and fast foods.------------------calcium oxalate kidney stones are the leading type of kidney stones. Oxalate is naturally found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, grains, legumes, and even chocolate and tea. Some examples of foods that contain high levels of oxalate include: peanuts, spinach, beets, chocolate and sweet potatoes.------------------another common type of kidney stone is a uric acid stone. Red meat and shellfish have high concentrations of a natural chemical compound known as a purine. High purine intake leads to a higher production of uric acid which then accumulates as crystals in the joints, or as stones in the kidneys. To prevent uric acid stones, cut down on high-purine foods such as red meat, organ meats, and shellfish, and follow a healthy diet that contains mostly vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and low fat dairy products. Limit sugar-sweetened foods and drinks, especially those that contain high fructose corn syrup. Limit alcohol because it can increase uric acid levels in the blood and avoid crash diets for the same reason. Eating less animal-based protein and eating more fruits and vegetables will help decrease urine acidity and this will help reduce the chance for stone formation. You should also be sure to drink at least 6-8 glass of water a day to help reduce the risk for stone formation.--------------------- homoeopathic medicine for prevention from kidney stoness---------------------- ptk-15 or berberis-pentarkan (schwabe german) -------chew 1 tab twicedaily for 4-6 months-----------------

Hello sir, I had done optical urethrotomy surgery last 25 days ago. Now I want to smoke and take alcohol. Can I smoke and take alcohol. What are the effects if I smoke.

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

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.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones. 8. You can also take neeri syrup 1-2 table spoon with a glass of water at least for 1 month.
