Home Remedies For Kidney Stones

Home Remedies for Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are the most painful disorders that affect individuals. Kidney stones are solid masses of mineral salt deposits which are generally filtered through the kidney and emptied through urine. Urine has a natural substance that dissolves those minerals by preventing them becoming solids or calculi. Due to dehydration, these salts sometimes do not get dissolved and crystallization takes place. This grows large enough to stick in the ureter by causing sharp to severe pain in the urinary tract. If untreated, kidney stones can cause renal failure.

Causes of Kidney Stones
  1. Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)
  2. Minerals imbalance
  3. Dehydration
  4. Overdoses of Vitamin D
  5. GOUT
  6. Poor diet

Basil leaves or Tulasi are good for kidney. Mix one tsp of basil leaves juice with 1 tsp of honey and drink it daily in the morning. You can also try chewing 2 to 3 basil leaves to get rid of stones from your urinary tract.

Watermelon contains water and potassium which is an essential ingredient for kidney. This helps in regulating and maintaining the acid levels that are present in the urine. Drinking watermelon juice or eating it directly often will help in flushing out the kidney stones.

Celery taking regularly helps in clearing the toxins which causes the formation of kidney stones.

Drink a glass of tomato juice with a pinch of pepper and salt every morning. This helps in dissolving the kidney stones.

Drink plenty of water daily more often; this will help in producing clear urine each time you urinate and will eventually help the kidney stones to pass through urine.

Whole wheat bread is a rich source of fiber, proteins, nutrients, and magnesium. Eating 2 to 3 slices of whole wheat bread daily can help in lowering the risk of kidney stones.

Kidney beans as the name suggests are another effective home remedy for treating kidney stones and other bladder problems.
Simply remove the seeds from the pods and then slice these pods in the water, and allow the water to boil on low flame until the pods become soft and tender. Strain the water and let it cool. Drink this solution several times a day to get relief from kidney stones.

A proper diet is important in keeping your kidney healthy and to avoid formation of kidney stones. Drinking plenty of water, fluids, or liquids daily will help prevent kidney stones.

Lemon juice contains citric acid which helps to break down the calcium-based kidney stones. Drink 2 to 3 glasses of lemon juice daily, this will help in increasing the urine volume which is good for people having kidney stones.

Eating too much of foods that are rich in calcium such as spinach, cauliflower, beetroot, carrots, coconut, almonds, turnip, peas, whole-wheat flour, can lead to kidney stones. Stay away from condiments such as pickle, sauce, alcohol drinks, radish, cucumber, tomato, cabbage, meat, gravies, and carbonated water.
