Anybody had any success with kidney stone natural treatments? I'm doing some research on that and would love to know about your experiences. Thanks a lot.
I've been drinking distilled water for 50 yrs.
My friend is a Dr.'s Dr. He's a "Fellow of the American Chemical Biologists."
He does my blood chemistry work.
He suggested I use distilled water over 50 yrs ago.
There are many reasons to do it. Too many to describe here.
Eat a good diet and take a good vitamin/mineral supplement every day.
That's really interesting. How much distilled water do you drink a day? Did you have kidney stones and did the distilled water help you pass them? Thanks, best of luck.
I've been drinking all the distilled water I need everyday for 50 yrs.
I've never had kidney or bladder stones.
Walmart sells a gallon for $.83 cents.
I buy it 20 gallons at a time.
I've been into sports and weightlifting all my life.
Good luck :
You sound very healthy. I'm sure the exercise and diet are big factors. Personally, I walk 4-5 miles a day and it's helped my digestion a lot. Anyone else does regular exercise? What kind and how has it helped with your kidney stones or anything else? Thanks.
Lemon water, and lots of it. The lemon breaks up the stones.
Gravel Root can be used to encourage the passing of kidney stones. Lots of herbal teas can be used too such as calendula, dandelion, juniper berry, burdock root and uva ursi. The herbs could be taken as a tea, or a tincture. They can also be taken as a pill. Be sure to know what you are doing before taking herbs. While natural, they are medicine.
The treatment depends on the type of kidney stone. There are 4 types of stones, calcium, uric acid, struvite, and cystine. About 80 percent of all kidney stones, are calcium, due to our high intake of animal protein, and refined carbs. My suggestion, include more green vegatables, and increase vitamin A consumption. Eat carrots, squash, and sweet potatoes. The number one recommended supplement is inositol 500-4g a day in powder form. Proven to treat and prevent kidney stones. Other helpful supplements: magnesium 250-500mg a day,vitamin B6 50mg taken with magnesium, reduces oxalate levels.
It is difficult to claim about kidney stone removal but drinking lots of water in the morning is useful .
This is my experience from a couple years ago. I had symptoms and finally went to the ER after severe pain and presenting blood. They thought something passed and a CT showed a 3mm stone. They gave me pain pills, Flomax and told me to push fluids. I drank lots of beer, water and lemonade. A week and a half go by and things were quiet. I went to a follow-up with a urologist. He did an xray and said it was 5mm and somewhat stuck. He gave a deadline and if it did not pass, they would go get it. It was the whole issue of kidney infection etc.
Anyway nothing was happening and I had 2 days before his deadline. After looking online I found the asparagus/coke trick. There are pages that folks want you to pay them for the "secret that DRs don't want you to know." Someone had it posted for free since it's the right thing to do... It goes something like this:
Heat 1 can of aparagus. Belend the whole can with lemon juice into a slurry and drink it down. Within an hour drink a 6-pack of Coke or a 2 liter. It's tough to do but I was willing to try anything to not have surgery.
After 4 Cokes, I made a big pee and it popped out. The Dr gave me a strainer so I caught it. It was 7mm.
I can't swear the asparagus did it but I do know that I passed the stone within 2 hours of drinking the slime. I had some minor pain the night before so maybe it worked itself out on its own. I don't know.
It's worth a try and it makes sense. Asparagus is a diuretic. The acid in lemon and coke will eat at the stone. All the beer, water and lemonade didn't do anything. I think results vary but it's worth a try. A lot of people swear by it.
A friend has chronic stones and he swears lemonade is the trick for him.
Wow, that's quite an experience you had. Have you had any symptoms since then? Have you made any changes since then to your diet or lifestyle to avoid more kidney stones? Thanks, best of luck.
I'm about to publish a hub on this. I honestly think hydration was the key thing in my case. I worked outside in 100+ weather. Although I drank a lot of water and sports drinks, it may have not been enough. We have a lot of lime in S. GA and there are high occurances of stones in this area so filtered or distilled water may be a big factor in prevention.
Distilled water is good for a lot of things, but because it lacks minerals, it can also leach minerals from the body. It's generally recommended not to intake large amounts of distilled water over extended periods of time. From what I can determine, individual body types and conditions will effect the amount/rate of leaching. It's just something to be aware of.
Yeah, I've heard of that. You can add minerals to the water to make up for the deficiency. Anybody know more about that?
Rather than add them to the water, you can supplement with colloidal minerals, or a good quality vit/mineral supplement. You don't want to mess with the benefit of distilled water, or you just get water. Take the supplements (usually with food) at least two hours from drinking distilled water so that you don't waste taking the supplement and have it leached out of your body.
Distilled water has first been turned into steam so that all of its impurities are left behind. Thenthru condensation, it is turned back into pure water. It is the only pure water. The only water free of all contamination. Distilled water may well be considered the only pure water on earth. The minerals that distilled water leaches out of the body are in-organic minerals that the body will not assimilate or use.
Coconut juice, fresh. That is according to my great grandmother, it is natural fresh fruit juice so it also helps your overall health.
Your diet varies as per the type of the stone. Oxalate stones can be passed by taking regular carrot and lemon juice.
Avoid spinach, cola and anything that is in bitter taste/acidic, no matter what type of stone you've.
I've had them three times, and my doctor once said it could be from too much calcium in my diet. He also said that if you get them once you have a 50/50 chance of getting them a second time. If you have them a second time you have an 85% chance of getting them again. If this is true, then I should be passing some more any time now... oh, and I cut back on my calcium intake.
