My mummy suffer problem of cervical and kidney stone which food is good for her please tell me.

My mummy suffer problem of cervical and kidney stone which food is good for her please tell me.
Tip 1: Boil two figs in a cup of water and drink it on an empty stomach early in the morning. Tip 2: Basil leaves (Tulsi) are good for the overall health of kidney. Mix 1 teaspoon of juice from basil leaves with 1 teaspoon of honey and have it daily in the morning. You can also chew two to three basil leaves in order to remove the stones from the urinary tract. Tip 3: The water and potassium content that is present in watermelon is an essential ingredient for a healthy kidney. It helps in regulating and maintaining the level of acid present in the urine. Eating watermelon or drinking its juice everyday will help in flushing out stones from the kidney. Tip 4: Regular intake of celery helps in clearing the toxins that cause the formation of stones in the kidney. Tip 5: Drink a glass of tomato juice with a pinch of salt and pepper every morning. This helps dissolve the mineral salt deposits in the kidney. Tip 6: Drinking plenty of water daily will produce clear urine each time you urinate. This will eventually help the kidney stones to pass. Tip 7: Whole wheat bread is a rich source of fiber, nutrients and proteins along with magnesium. Having two to three slices of whole wheat bread daily will help a lot in lowering the risk of kidney stone. Tip 8: Kidney beans are another effective remedy for treating kidney stones or any kind of bladder problems. You can simply remove the seeds from the pods and slice the pods in the water, allow the water to boil on low flame for an hour until the pods become soft and tender. Strain the liquid and leave till it cools, drink it several times throughout the day to get relief from kidney stones. Tip 9: A proper diet is essential in keeping the kidney healthy and prevent formation of kidney stones. Drinking plenty of water and other fluids or liquids daily will help prevent most types of kidney stones. Consuming too much of calcium rich foods such as spinach, beet, cauliflower, carrots, almonds, sweet breads, coconut, turnip, Bengal gram, peas, whole-wheat flour and organ meats like liver and kidney can lead to kidney stones. One should also know to choose a diet that is low in salt and animal proteins. Keep away from condiments such as pickle, alcohol drinks, sauce, cucumber, radish, tomato, asparagus, onion, cabbage, meat and gravies as well as carbonated drinks. Tip 10: Lemon juice contains citric acid that helps break down the calcium-based kidney stones. Drink two to three glass of lemon juice daily. This will help increase the volume of urination, which is really good for those having kidney stones

Sir, I suffer with 8mm stone in lower calyex kidney from 1week. What can l do sir.

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
Sir, I suffer with 8mm stone in lower calyex kidney from 1week. What can l do sir.
Hi, since it is a single stone, you can try medical management for 3 months and reassess stone size on ultrasound. If the size decreases, then you can continue medical management. If the stone is not dissolving, eswl (lithotripsy) or flexible ureteroscopy with laser are the best treatment options. 1. Eswl: a) advantages: no anesthesia; no blood loss; no cut or suturing b) disadvantages: does not break all stones (70% clearance); may need multiple sessions; fragments may block the ureter and cause pain/need ureteroscopy 2. Flexible ureteroscopy with laser/retrograde intra renal surgery (rirs): a) advantages: complete clearance for all types of stones; no cut or blood loss b) disadvantage: needs anesthesia. Since you are young, it is better to get 24 hour urine metabolic work up for kidney stones. This will tell you if you have any increased excretion of salts like calcium, uric acid, oxalate etc in urine. Based on that result, we can change diet and or take medications to prevent recurrence of stone. Wish you a good health.

He has a kidney stones problem from last three years. Please give him a proper solution prescription. Thanking you.
According to Ayurveda, improper diet and lifestyle leads to aggravation of all three doshas (Ayurvedic humors) and impairment of the digestive fire, causing formation of toxins (ama) in the body. These toxins travel down the channels carrying urine, where aggravated doshas combine with it, causing its crystallization and leading to the formation of kidney stones. Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report coz herbal medicines for removing stones can be given according to size and number and location of stones.

If the stones are large in size or having odd locations like lower calyces of kidney, then it will be hard to get them out by medicines. Else its very much possible your stones will get dissolved in a month by medical treatments. Get an usg kubp done and get back with the report.

This is common misunderstanding in general public that beer is good for kidney stones and high creatinine. This is not true. In fact beer increases blood pressure and affects your kidneys also. Please don't try such things. Take opinion from kidney specialist.
