Ayurvedic Remidies For Renal Stone

Ayurvedic Remidies For Renal Stone

Kidney stones is a disorder of the urinary tract wherein stones form in the kidney. This happens when solid particles in the urine become concentrated; the solid particles mostly being acid and mineral salts. This disorder can affect any part of the urinary tract: from the bladder to the kidneys. The treatment for this disorder is designed depending on the severity of your symptoms.

Symptoms
Once affected by this disorder, pain in the lower abdominal region will be common. The pain may get aggravated when you urinate. You may also exhibit symptoms of vomiting, nausea and a constant urge to urinate. Hematuria (presence of blood in the urine) is another symptom common to this disorder.

Causes
There is no single known cause for kidney stones. These stones occur when certain solid particles such as uric acid and calcium are present in the urine in large amounts. However, certain factors that increase the risk of kidney stones are:

Family history of kidney stones
Lack of sufficient water in the body or dehydration
Eating foods which are loaded with sugar and salts
Obesity
 

Ayurvedic treatment
Ayurvedic remedies for kidney stones are natural and free from side effects. Apart from relieving the symptoms, they also help in improving your overall well-being. These remedies balance the various doshas in the body and thus, lead to improved functioning of the abdominal organs. The ayurvedic remedies for kidney stones are

Stay hydrated: staying hydrated is the basic you can do to either prevent kidney stones or treating the condition. Dehydration is one of the most important causes for the formation of kidney stones.
Avoid certain foods: you need to avoid consumption of certain foods such as apples, tomatoes and cheese which increase the risks of kidney stones.
Exercise on a regular basis: you need to chalk down and stick to an exercise regimen to keep your weight at optimal levels. Remember that obesity is a major contributor to kidney stones.

Kidney Stones Risks and Their Prevention

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
Kidney Stones Risks and Their Prevention

Kidney Stones

What are kidney stones


Kidney stones are tiny, hard masses that form inside the kidneys. These stones are made of acid salts and minerals.

Causes

Kidney stones may get created when an imbalance of minerals, salts, water and other materials found in urine occurs. Things that cause the imbalance include:

Insufficient drinking of water
Different types of medical conditions

A person can form kidney stones due to his/her family history as stones frequently occur within the family over several generations.

In rare cases, kidney stones are formed due to excessive production of a hormone by the parathyroid glands.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a kidney stone may not be found until it proceeds to the ureter or moves around inside the kidney. When any of these occur, the following symptoms can be noted:

Pain that advances to the groin and lower abdomen
Acute pain in back and side, beneath the ribs
Brown, pink or red colored urine
Pain on urination
Vomiting and nausea
Foul-smelling or cloudy urine
More urination than normal
Continual need of urination
Urinating little amounts of urine
Fever and chills when there is an infection
Diagnosis

If the presence of a kidney stone is suspected by the doctor, the following diagnostic procedures and tests may be prescribed:

Blood tests
Imaging tests
Urine tests
Examination of passed stones
Diagnosis

Treatment

Treatment for kidney stones differs, depending upon the cause and type of stone. Most kidney stones can be cured by home treatments and don't require invasive treatment. Home treatments include:

Drinking enough water
Use of pain relievers

If conservative measures fail to treat kidney stones, extensive treatment may be required. Such procedures can include:

ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy)
Surgery
Use of ureteroscope
Parathyroid gland surgery

Prevention and controllable risk factors

A merger of medications and lifestyle changes may help prevent the formation of kidney stones.

Medications can help maintain the balance of acid and minerals in the urine. They can also be helpful for those having certain types of stones.

Lifestyle changes too can help prevent this disease. They include:

Drinking water round the clock.
Having diets low in animal protein and salt.
Avoiding oxalate-rich foods.

Controllable risk factors that elevate the risk of forming kidney stones include:

Intake of diets high in sodium, protein and sugar. A high-sodium diet is especially risky as excessive sodium in your diet increases the quantity of calcium your kidneys must filter, thus significantly boosting your risk of kidney stones.
Dehydration: Inadequate intake of water increases your risk of kidney stones. People who sweat a lot and those living in warm climates are at higher risk than their counterparts in other, more comfortable regions.
Being obese: Several studies have linked weight gain, large waist size and high BMI (body mass index) to an increased risk of kidney stones.

A merger of medications and lifestyle changes may help prevent the formation of kidney stones.

Medications can help maintain the balance of acid and minerals in the urine. They can also be helpful for those having certain types of stones.

Lemon juice is vitamin C-rich juice and may even dissolve kidney stones, yet studies remains inconclusive on these claims. But, studies does agree that lemon juice may support kidney health but on the other end lemon juice is by no means a cure all for kidney stones. Regardless of this, lemon juice has potent nutritional benefits for the kidneys, possibly providing protection against kidney stone development. But many factors come into play here; however, lemon juice may still be a beneficial addition to the diet of anyone wanting to remove kidneystones----------------For this we may first get to Type of Kidney Stones before we fully investigate the benefits of lemon juice on stone development. The main contributors to kidney stones include:----------------- 1.Cystine — Often the result of a genetic disorder.---------- 2.Struvite — Typically develop after a kidney infection.------------- 3.Uric Acid — Typically result from overconsuming meat, fish, and shellfish — generally rare.---------------- 4.Calcium Oxalate — Buildup of calcium deposits in the kidneys — most common.------ Calcium is a necessary mineral for the bones, teeth, heart, and nervous system. When the body has excess calcium, the kidneys respond by removing it from the blood and excreting it out through the urine. The problem arises when the body also has excess oxalate, a plant compound found in foods like spinach and kale. This combination can form calcium oxalate, the most common form of kidney stones.----------------------Lemon juice contains high levels of citric acid, not to be confused with ascorbic acid (vitamin C). While lemon juice contains both, citric acid seems to contribute to reducing the chances of developing calcium oxalate stones. In clinical studies, citric acid from lemon juice has been shown to reduce urine acidity, thereby reducing kidney stone incidence. Vitamin C may also provide protection, yet it is unclear whether or not this protection is as significant as citric acid. Regardless, the bottom line is that lemon juice offers a complementary approach to supporting kidney function and, depending on the type of stones in question, possibly halting formation before it starts.-------------------------------150-200 Ml of lemon juice offers plenty of citric acid and a variety of other nutrients and antioxidants, all of which may be helpful for supporting kidney health. Always consume lemon juice in its raw, natural form and never purchase bottled lemon juice, as these products are usually pasteurized and stripped of their raw enzymes and vital nutrients----You can mix it with hot water and some raw honey, or make your own lemonade by combining fresh lemon juice with cold water. ------------------------------------------

Kidney Stones - Can Homeopathy Treat Them Effectively?

Kidney Stones - Can Homeopathy Treat Them Effectively?

Are you suffering from kidney stones and looking for an effective, natural treatment? You should choose homeopathy, as it works well in treating kidney stones. A kidney stone is a hard, crystalline, mineral development in your kidneys or urinary tract. The condition is called nephrolithisis. Kidney stones occur due to a reduction in your urine volume, and because of the presence of excess stone-forming substance in your urine. Homeopathic treatment of kidney stones does not involve any side effects, and various homeopathic medicines are used as a part of the treatment. Some of them are as follows:

Belladonna:

  1. This medicine is used when a sharp pain is experienced because of kidney stones.
  2. A patient experiences strains and cramps along the ureter during the passage of calculus.
  3. Fever and irritation are also likely.

Benzoic acid:

  1. Benzoic acid is prescribed in case of nephritic colic.
  2. Offensive urinary symptoms are experienced. The urine is usually deep red with strong and foul odor.
  3. The urine may alternatively be thick, and clear.

Argentum Nit:

  1. This homeopathic medicine is used for treating kidney stones, which develop because of kidney congestion.
  2. Dull backache and ache in the bladder are experienced, along with dark urine, containing deposits of uric acid and blood.
  3. A patient experiences an increased urge for urination, but a very small amount of urine is passed at once.
  4. A burning sensation while passing urine is indicated along with swelling of the urethra.

Cantharis:

  1. This homeopathic medicine is used during the paroxysms of renal colic. Extreme pain and excitement are indicated.
  2. The pain may be cutting in nature, and it shoots in various directions, affecting your limbs and different parts of the body.
  3. There is an increased urge to urinate, and an aversion to fluids is developed by a patient in spite of feeling thirsty.

Berberis:

  1. This is another effective homeopathic remedy used for treating kidney stones, when the patient experiences a shooting pain radiating from a certain point and he or she becomes unable to move because of the pain.
  2. Also there is a darting pain experienced in the ureter, extending down to your legs.
  3. There is an indication of the development of little pinheads in the pelvis that starts growing down your bladder.

You must consult a homeopathic practitioner before taking homeopathic medicines for the treatment of kidney stones. A doctor will suggest you the best homeopathic medicines based on the symptoms you experience and the severity of the condition.

Dear , Simple cortical cyst with calcification is no trouble. It does not damage kidney and is to be left alone or at the most to be kept under supervision as your urologist has suggested.However i would like to point out that if you have preserved the stone fragments then get its chemical analysis done so that one could know for sure what the stone is formed of from that the likely cause of the stone formation as it is formed because of some underlying cause which must be detected and treated so that recurrent formation of stone can be prevented.
