You have irritation when you go for urination. Get your urine routine test done to look for pus cells and upload the report for better treatment.

Unfortunately some people do develop stones in kidneys but not all cases. Offlate people starve this is not right. She can take all foods in moderate. Fundamentally she should not take palak and tomato plenty every day some foods have oxalets and carbonates in plenty she has do reduce at least for six months and watch. She should take more water.

Possible less as the diamiter of stone is >greater than ureteric diameter. But it depends on which type of stone compound is in it. Some ayurvedic drug can dissolve it. Take tab chandrapravha and cystone tab of Himalaya. 2 tab each together bdpc. If symptoms persist after 15 days. Then need cystoscopy and lessure removal of stone.

Sir, at your age these urinary symptoms are most commonly associated with a condition known as benign hypertrophy of prostate gland. There might also be possible of a mild urinary tract infection which might be responsible for your symptoms. Get a usg of kubp region done to know about your prostate size to determine whether it requires medical or surgical or no treatment at all. Regarding the problem of breathlessness, this may be related to your heart. I see that you are taking antihypertensive drug. Do you get regular follow up with your blood pressure? consult me privately to get a look into both of your problems so that can help you:)

How Suitable Is Homeopathy in Treating Kidney Stones?

How Suitable Is Homeopathy in Treating Kidney Stones?

Kidneys stones occur as a result of accumulation of mineral deposits in the kidneys. The size of a kidney stone may vary from person to person and they are noticed only if they create a blockage in the kidney. Apart from the kidneys, they may occur in the urethra, ureters and the bladder. Kidney stones only cause pain when they are pushed into the ureters.

Homeopathy is a system that focuses on treating the cause of the disease and hence is a holistic method of treatment. The various homeopathic remedies for kidney stones are:

  1. Cantharis: Cantharis is recommended if you experience intense pain while urinating; it also helps if you have a constant urge to urinate. You may also notice blood in the urine.
  2. Berberis vulgaris: If you suffer from pain in the kidney resulting from the kidney stone located on the left portion of your body, then this remedy is prescribed. You may also experience stiffness in the kidney region in the early hours of the morning. You may also have a bubbling sensation that worsens while moving your body.
  3. Sarsaparilla: If you are passing white colored deposits in your urine, then sarsaparilla is used to treat the condition. You may also experience intense pain after urinating.
  4. Lycopodium: Lycopodium is a deep acting remedy that is recommended if you pass red deposits through your urine. You may experience very strong urges to urinate at night along with intense pain in the back that gets better after urinating. The pain from the kidney stones tends to worsen during the afternoon.
  5. Benzoic acid: If you show symptoms, such as dark brown urine and high uric acid levels in the body, then this remedy is recommended to treat the condition. Benzoic acid also helps in optimizing the levels of uric acid in the body.
  6. ColoCynthis: This remedy is recommended if you experience intense pain in the urethra while passing stools. You may also pass crystals in your urine.

Mr. lybrate-user. Stricture can develop in urethra after instrumentation but infection chances are also there so get your urine complete examination done if pus cells present get the urine culture done and then see your treating doctor.
