How to Deal With Kidney Stones?





 Fruit flies do get kidney stones. Funny is it not? Their kidney tubules are so transparent that scientists find it easy to study about them. Kidney stone is an aggregation of crystals formed from dietary minerals. They affect mostly 80% of the men. If the stones grow to a considerable size they cause obstruction of the ureter which leads to pain.

The reasons of kidney stone formation include drinking less amount of water, high intake of animal protein, sodium, refined sugars, grape fruit juice, apple juice and colas. Super saturation of urine and fluoridation of drinking water can also cause kidney stones.

Researchers have found that genes can also play a role in increasing the risk. You know what? Drinking iced tea can increase the risk of getting kidney stones, because it contains oxalates in high concentrations. Today, even children as young as 3 years are suffering from kidney stones the reasons health professionals point out are; sugar filled drinks, fast foods coupled with a sedentary lifestyle.

Scientists say that a healthy diet helps prevent kidney stones. Including more of nuts, fruits, vegetables, low fat dairy products and whole grains and limiting foods such as salt, red and processed meat and sweetened beverages can prevent kidney stone formation. If you are suffering from kidney stones your first goal would be to remove it naturally. 

First drink plenty of water up to 3 liters daily. Include foods such as asparagus, watermelon, cantaloupe, celery and grapes in your daily diet.  You can drink linseed tea to break up kidney stones into small pieces. If you want to try herbal medicines there are some really beneficial methods in Siddha medicine.

Take care
