Kidney stones affect up to 5% of the population, with a lifetime risk of passing a kidney stone of about 8-10%.1 Increased incidence of kidney stones in the industrialised world is associated with improved standards of living and is strongly associated with race or ethnicity and region of residence.2 A seasonal variation is also seen, with high urinary calcium oxalate saturation in men during summer and in women during early winter.3 Stones form twice as often in men as women. The peak age in men is 30 years; women have a bimodal age distribution, with peaks at 35 and 55 years. Once a kidney stone forms, the probability that a second stone will form within five to seven years is approximately 50%.
The severe amount of pain and suffering that a kidney stone can cause, it is one of the "great pains" in medicine and one that you are unlikely to forget. Kidney stones (calculi) are solid or semi-solid mineral-like substances occurring in the urinary tract. The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Urinary calculi may form anywhere along the urinary tract. The main problem occurs when the stones block the drainage of the kidney, resulting in urinary obstruction.
Causes of Kidney Stones:
Calcium stones form when
there is an imbalance in the urine substances that promote and block
the formation of stones. Often, the cause of this imbalance is unknown.
Urinary calculi have been around for centuries. Stones were found in an Egyptian skeleton estimated to be over 7,000 years old. In the United States, archeologists have discovered urinary calculi in bony remains dating back to 1500 B.C. Many notable individuals have suffered with kidney stones, namely Louis Napoleon III (Emperor of France), Benjamin Franklin (American inventor), and Lyndon B. Johnson (American President
Other symptoms, of kidney stones are a frequent desire to urinate, painful urination, scanty urination, nausea, vomiting, sweating, and chills. The patient may also pass blood with the urine.
Home remedies have become increasingly popular as the expense and hassle of conventional medicine continues to rise. Beyond the convenience, home remedies have found favor with a public that wants to take a more holistic approach to its ailments.
The Role of Vitamin C in Preventing and Dissolving Kidney
Acidic urine will also dissolve magnesium ammonium phosphate stones, which would otherwise require surgical removal. These are the same struvite stones associated with urinary tract infections. Both the infection and the stone are easily cured with vitamin C in large doses. BOTH are virtually 100% preventable with daily consumption of much-greater-than-RDA amounts of ascorbic acid. Think grams, not milligrams! A gorilla gets about 4,000 mg of vitamin C a day in its natural diet. The US RDA for humans is only 60 mg. Someone is wrong, and I don't think it's the gorillas.
The common calcium oxalate stone can form in an acidic urine whether one takes vitamin C or not. However, if a person gets adequate quantities of B-complex vitamins and magnesium, this type of stone does not form. Any common B-complex supplement twice daily, plus about 400 milligrams of magnesium, is usually adequate.
Ascorbate (the active ion in vitamin C) does increase the body's production of oxalate. Yet, in practice, vitamin C does not increase oxalate stone formation. Drs. Emanuel Cheraskin, Marshall Ringsdorf, Jr. and Emily Sisley explain in The Vitamin C Connection (1983) that acidic urine or slightly acidic urine reduces the UNION of calcium and oxalate, reducing the possibility of stones. "Vitamin C in the urine tends to bind calcium and decrease its free form. This means less chance of calcium's separating out as calcium oxalate (stones)." (page 213) Also, the diuretic effect of vitamin C reduces the static conditions necessary for stone formation in general. Fast moving rivers deposit little silt.
Probably you heard this before, but come to it again; make sure that you are drinking a lot of water. Dissolve the kidney stone with lot of water. But practically speaking you will not get hundred percent results. But if you don't drink plenty of water then you are encouraging the stone to grow. It is must for everyone who posses kidney stone.
Kidney beans, also known as dried French beans or Rajmah, are regarded as a very effective home remedy for kidney problems, including kidney stones. The method prescribed to prepare the medicine is to remove the beans from inside the pods, then slice the pods and put about sixty grams in four litre of hot water, boiling them slowly for six hours. This liquid should be strained through fine muslin and then allowed to cool for about eight hours. Thereafter the fluid should be poured through another piece of muslin without stirring.A glass of this decoction should be given to the patient every two hours throughout the day for one day and, thereafter, it may be taken several times a week. This decoction would not work if it was more than twenty-four hours old. The pods could be kept for longer periods but once they were boiled, the therapeutic factor would disappear after one day.

hydrangea root, ginger capsules and 250mg of vitamin B6 and uva ursi
capsules. Soak all these ingredients in small non-metallic cups with
non-metallic lids individually filled with fresh tap water. Then boil
the herbs and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink a quarter cup, when it cools

the portion and drink it once it cools down. Freeze the rest. Make
a mixture of both the frozen contents daily and add 20 drops of goldenrod
tincture and one tablespoon of glycerin. Take a big mug full daily.
