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.

COCONUT RESOLVE KIDNEY STONE

BHMS
Homeopath, Sindhudurg
COCONUT RESOLVE KIDNEY STONE

Coconut is a tropical fruit that is rich in protein. Coconut water is good for kidney and urinary bladder problems.
Drinking coconut water for 2 to 3 times a week reduces the size of kidney stones in a short period of time.

Benefits of coconut water
* it dissolves kidney stones
* it prevents bladder infections
* it revitalizes your reproductive system

Symptoms of kidney stones

Kidney stones that are above the pelvis of the kidney usually do not cause symptoms.
Symptoms often occur when a stone migrates into the ureter, the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder, and prevents the drainage of urine from the kidney.
When stones are present in the ureter, a person may experience the following symptoms:

* pain.

* nausea and vomiting.

* blood in the urine.

* increase in frequency or urgency of urination, or the inability to urinate.

There are other possible consequences of kidney stones. Partial or complete obstruction of a kidney by a stone may lead to a backup of urine in the blood, along with its potentially toxic component, urea. If this happens, the kidney may suffer damage to its tubules (the microscopic chemical plants that manufacture urine) and to their associated blood vessels.

Kidney stones are formed from chemicals that are found in your urine such as, calcium, carbonates, cystine, oxalic acid, phosphates, uric acid, ammonium, and magnesium.

Of these chemicals, calcium constitutes a large percentage of the stones that are formed.

Causes of kidney stones

One contributing cause is a defective metabolic process. When you habitually drink insufficient amounts of water and other fluids daily, your urine becomes highly concentrated.
Diet is another major contributing factor. If you are fond of eating fatty foods and your daily intake of high fiber foods is low, you will surely have kidney stone problems sooner or later.
Other causes

* acid-forming foods

* alcoholic drinks

* coffee

* condiments

* junk food

* spices

* sugar foods

Importance of making kidneys function properly
 Kidneys receive a large amount of the blood pumped by your heart. This huge blood supply enable your kidneys to regulate the composition of your blood.
They also remove wastes such as ammonia, drugs, urea and other toxins from your body.
That's why it is important to dissolve kidney stones early before they get big enough to give you problems, such as kidney infections, later.

Other functions

* they keep the volume of water constant in your body

* they regulate your blood pressure

* they aid in making red blood cells

* they maintain the calcium levels in your body

Coconut water helps dissolve kidney stones by diluting your urine so that the various chemicals in your kidneys such as calcium, phosphates, uric acid, etc. Are relatively easy to flush out of your system.
This is because it is a natural diuretic and it increases the urine flow.
Aside from its ability to dissolve kidney stones, it is also a rich source of cytokinins. Cytokinins are plant growth hormones, they regulate the growth and development of plants.
The interesting part is that cytokinins have an anti-aging effect on human cells and tissues.
In other words, they help delay your aging process.

Other health benefits of coconut:

1. Prevents simple goiter (enlarged non-toxic thyroid) because of its organic iodine content.

2. Good body builder, so it is a food recommended for building up the body muscles of thin and emaciated individuals.

3. Constipation and for any build-up of gas in the stomach and intestinal tract.

4. Coconut milk has been found to help causes of a sore throat as well as relieving stomach ulcers.

5. Coconut oil has been found to heal cuts, scratches, burns and sunburns.

6. The oil has also been recommended for facial massage and is reported to be good as a wrinkle remover.

7. Coconut oil is also good for the scalp and hair and makes hairdressing unnecessary.

8. Intake of at least 2 tbsp. Of virgin coconut, oil per day can lessen your vitamin e requirement.

9. Coconut water is good for kidney and urinary bladder problems.

This proves that a pound of prevention is indeed worth more than a ton of cure.

I have 6.4 mm stone in my upper ureter. Doctor gave me urimax 0.4 mg for 15 days and told me to wait if I don't pass it then he will see. Is it ok? Can I pass the stone what are the chances?

As the stone is less than 5 mm and so in my opinion there is less chance of it to pass without any problems of colicky pain.

Permanent cure will depend on the cause(which will be evident in investigation reports),however you must increase daily fluid intake to ensure 2.5-3 liters of urine. Also take Tab Cystone 2 tabs twice a day.

I have small kidney stone which was broken by doctor and passed through the urine. I understand that chance of recurring is there for such patients. When i go through the diet for such patience, some people say dont take calcium. But some people say you should take calcium so that it will acts with oxalate and go through intestine and will not get absorbed to blood and later to kidney. Two opinions about taking calcium supplements too. The same way with vegetables. Can you give me list of food that i have to avoid and list of things that will help me to have a better life.

Hello doctor, I suffered from chills and later fever 4 nights back. The doctor diagnosed me with a urinary tract infection. However I do not have pain or inflammation while urinating. The doctor howsoever prescribed me azithromycin 500mg and some pre and pro biotic caps. I was ok after taking 2 doses of it. But today I feel the fever and headache coming back again. I also have pain in my eyeballs while I roll them sidewise. Is there a chance that I have some other problem like typhoid etc as I don't see the symptoms of uti clearly? how long does it take for the uti to be cured?

Hello, please donot use any type of scrub or pumice stone or loofah to rub your skin during bath since it gives reverse pigmentation. Apply kojivit gel on the dark areas at night very little amount for a month. Use moisturiser and sunscreen during the day.

Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

I am 30 years old and I am male, while going to motion/stool its very pain at anal hole though I am using aceclofenac or other pain killer tablets there is no relief why its happening to me i am not understanding and few times it was bleeding also.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

It appears you have anal fissure, this happens when you pass hard bulky stool, you need to change your diet to include more fiber like leafy vegetables, fruits and drink plenty of water, so that stool becomes soft. As far as your condition is concerned it takes time for the fissure to heal, start applying xylocaine 5% ointment with applicator 5-10 minutes prior to passing stool deep inside your anal canal, it will give you relief. After passing stool you should sit in a large bowel or basin containing warm water mixed with a cap full of savlon solution for 5-10 minutes called seitz bath, you will have relief. You can also reapply the same xylocaine ointment once again to give a sustained relief. You can avoid pain killers as a routine. Use them only if needed.
