Milk and milk based products are rich in calcium. Bladder stone will require cystoscopic removal. Don't avoid calcium to prevent stone. It will be counterproductive.

kidney stones can be cured with medicines which are combination of herbal and homeo. There will no such need to undergo surgery or operations. I will suggest you to avoid surgery there is no need of it. You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Kidney gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming.If the crystals remain tiny enough, they will travel through the urinary tract and pass out of the body in the urine without being noticed. You can connect with me and I will provide you with treatment by which you will be getting cured with kidney stones naturally. The medicines are combination of herbal and homeopathic only.

Hi, we do not get urine infection from food. Urine infection occurs due to bacteria which grow in genital region and enter the bladder through urinary passage. The following measures will help you to reduce infection. 1. Drink plenty of fluids and pass urine every 3 to 4 hours. 2. Always wipe or clean from front to back. Bacteria from anal region should not enter the vaginal region. 3. Take vitamin c regularly. It acidifies urine and reduces bacterial growth. 4. Take cranberry juice, apple and lemon regularly. 5. Avoid douches 6. Avoid bathtubs 7. Use cotton underwear and loose clothes which reduce moisture locally. Moisture favors bacterial growth. 8. Use estrogen vaginal cream every night (after consultation with your gynecologist or urologist). 9. Pass urine after having intercourse. Bacteria normally enters during intercourse. They get washed away while passing urine. 10. Take yogurt or curd regularly. This can increase the health bacteria like lactobacilli in vaginal region. This will prevent growth of harmful bacteria. If you still get recurrent infections, please get yourself examined by a urologist. Problems like narrow urinary passage and prolapse of bladder can also cause urine infection. Urologist can identify and correct these problems. Get your sugar level checked regularly to rule out diabetes.

Can Homeopathy Treat Kidney Stones Effectively?

Can Homeopathy Treat Kidney Stones 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:

  1. Belladonna
    • This medicine is used when a sharp pain is experienced because of kidney stones.
    • A patient experiences strains and cramps along the ureter during the passage of calculus.
    • Fever and irritation are also likely.
  2. Benzoic acid
    • Benzoic acid is prescribed in case of nephritic colic.
    • Offensive urinary symptoms are experienced. The urine is usually deep red with strong and foul odor.
    • The urine may alternatively be thick, and clear.
  3. Argentinum nit
    • This homeopathic medicine is used for treating kidney stones, which develop because of kidney congestion.
    • Dull backache and ache in the bladder are experienced, along with dark urine, containing deposits of uric acid and blood.
    • A patient experiences an increased urge for urination, but a very small amount of urine is passed at once.
    • A burning sensation while passing urine is indicated along with swelling of the urethra.
  4. Cantharis
    • This homeopathic medicine is used during the paroxysms of renal colic. Extreme pain and excitement are indicated.
    • The pain may be cutting in nature, and it shoots in various directions, affecting your limbs and different parts of the body.
    • There is an increased urge to urinate, and an aversion to fluids is developed by a patient in spite of feeling thirsty.
  5. Berberis
    • 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.
    • Also there is a darting pain experienced in the ureter, extending down to your legs.
    • There is an indication of the development of little pinheads in the pelvis that starts growing down your bladder.

You must consult a licensed 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.

I have kidney stones please give me some suggestions regarding this and it should not be by the surgery.
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.

Wt a solution of renal stone else surgery wt size stone will be pass out without surgery.
Hi, with the help of homoeopathic medicines, the renal-stone of 6-7mm or less can be cured without surgery! prevention: prevention of kidney stones may include a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes you may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. 1 eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, restrict foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, bhindi (okra), spinach, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose non animal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert me back.

You may go to doctor if your pain increases or if there's any discoloration of urine. It depends how hard hit was. If not severe, then maybe inflamed bruise confined to back muscles which may respond to fomentation and pain meds. And rest to back, application of anti inflammatory gel locally.

My wife age is 30 years, please about this tell urine coming with blood its reason.
Hi, urine in blood can be due to urinary infection, kidney stones or rarely tumor in kidney or bladder. She needs to get a urine examination and ultrasound of abdomen urgently to rule out these conditions and start treatment according to the results. Please get back to me if you need any clarification.

Your kidneys don't get flushed or cleaned because of water. For common thinking, it is ok to believe that since kidneys would shed more water, they will get cleaned. But this is not the way kidneys work. Kidneys work by a mechanism called re-absorption. Meaning by which, they first eliminate a lot of solute mixed water by simple filtering and then re-absorb the important things that should be retained. Proteins, sugars and electrolytes are things that re-absorbed back by the kidneys. If you want to ensure the health of your kidneys - take less salt (sodium), keep your blood pressure under control at all times and monitor your sugar levels.
