Some kidney stones can be dissolved and flushed without much hassles by simply changing or controlling the food and liquid you normally take. If you have small kidney stones home remedy can help remove them easily.
However, if the stone is bigger or if the stone is formed due to infection, simple home remedy may not help. In such cases, being an Ayurveda doctor, I don’t recommend surgery either, you may call me or contact me through email for further information.
The home remedies to remove kidney stones depend on the type of stone, size of the stone and the cause.
It is possible to move a small stone through your urinary tract simply by drinking plenty of water — as much as 2.5 to 3 liters a day and of course, you must stay physically active.
If you have (or prone to get) calcium stones, you should cut down on foods that have high levels of calcium (i.e. dairy products and leafy green vegetables).
Those having (or prone to get) oxalate stones, should avoid or reduce intake of foods such as spinach, pie plant (rhubarb), beets, nuts, chocolate, tea, strawberries, and beans.
People who form uric acid stones should avoid meat, fish and poultry and those who frequently get struvite stones must keep the urine free of bacteria that can cause infection.
The above advice is applicable for most people having kidney stones. However, not everyone finds them helpful.
In all cases, it is recommended to eat more fiber, vegetables and whole grains. If you don’t have and want to prevent kidney stones home remedy mentioned above will be certainly helpful.
