Foods that contribute to kidney stone a) Sugar-heavy diet worse kidney stones. b) Unsprouted grains or refined grains - flour and products like cereal, bread, rolls, cake, etc - they have high levels of antinutrients, including phytic acid. c) Foods naturally high in oxalic acid —may increase oxalate buildup in people prone to kidney stones include: spinach, rhubarb, tomatoes, collards, eggplant, beets, celery, summer squash, grapefruit, sweet potatoes, peanuts, almonds, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and cocoa. d) Processed meats and cold cuts — can cause the body to excrete calcium, which means more is sent to the kidneys where it can build up and form stones. e) More zinc (from foods like pumpkin seeds, cashews, meat or spinach) can increase their odds of having kidney stones. f) Too much vitamin C — more than three grams per day might aggravate kidney stones by contributing to oxalate buildup. g) Caffeine and alcohol — Both are dehydrating and can be difficult to digest, which can make kidney stones worse. n) Calcium rich foods – Avoid conventional dairy products like milk and processed cheese that can cause a buildup of calcium. 3. Get Regular Exercise is good for building bone strength and preventing demineralization of your skeletal system.

Supplements that Help Reduce Kidney Stones a) Magnesium: balances other minerals in the body and prevents magnesium deficiency or electrolyte imbalances. Take about 250 milligrams two times daily in capsule form or as part of a mineral powder supplement. b) B vitamins: B vitamins help reduce calcium and oxalates from accumulating. Take a daily B complex vitamin, especially one that contains at least 50 milligrams of vitamin B6. c) Antioxidant supplement or multivitamin containing vitamin E: also useful for lowering inflammation and reducing calcium and oxalate buildup. Aim to get at least 400 IU of vitamin E daily. d) Cranberry extract: reduces risk for developing urinary tract infections and balances calcium levels. Take 400 milligrams twice daily. e) Aloe vera juice/gel: reduces crystallization of minerals within the urinary tract. Take 1/4 cup daily. f) Essential oils: certain essential oils help the body detoxify itself of built-up heavy metals, toxins and access minerals, including lemon, orange, lime or helichrysum essential oil. Take citrus oils either internally (such as adding two drops of 100 percent pure oil to your water twice daily) or topically by combining several drops with a carrier oil (like coconut oil) and massaging it into the lower abdomen twice daily. Helichrysum oil should only be used on the skin and not ingested. One thing to avoid is taking calcium supplements or antacids, since these can make matters worse.It’s a better idea to get calcium naturally from foods (like raw kefir, fermented beans and leafy greens). The main reasons that kidney stones can form include: eating a poor diet, especially one that’s high in oxalates taking synthetic calcium supplements, which aren’t always absorbed well dehydration an abnormal pH balance, meaning the body becomes overly acidic having trouble with normal digestion, such as healing from gastric bypass surgery, having an inflammatory bowel disease or chronic diarrhea food allergies or sensitivities that can affect digestion electrolyte imbalances obesity medication or drug use nutrient and mineral deficiencies infections inactivity thyroid disorder (which can cause the thyroid to produce too much parathyroid hormone, which raises calcium levels) Once a kidney stone forms, it can wind up attaching itself to sites that block the urinary tract, which is usually the primary reason for feeling such intense pain. For some people, struvite stones (the type that are “horn-shaped,” larger than calcium stones and usually more dangerous) form due to chronic urinary tract infections, which is more common in women than in men. One reason urinary infections can keep developing and forming stones is due to a buildup of ammonia in the urine. Uric acid stones, a byproduct of protein metabolism, can develop in people who are eating a very high-protein diet, those who are recovering from chemotherapy treatments. Sometimes the pain can subside, and therefore it might seem like the kidney stone dissolved on its own and is no longer an issue — however this can be problematic because that’s not always the case. In some cases, the blockage hasn’t actually been resolved even though pain has faded and the kidney actually starts to shut down, which left untreated by a doctor can lead to permanent loss of function in that kidney within just a short period. A kidney stone can even rupture if it remains for too long, which is another cause kidney failure. Kidney stones symptoms can include: Intense pain along the kidneys (on your side and back below your ribs) — pain can come and go, varying in intensity and lasting between five and 15 minutes (especially when going to the bathroom) Lower back pain that can spread down below the kidneys, to your groin and between the thighs Cloudy, bloody or foul-smelling urine Discoloration of urine, including brown or pink colors Persistent urge to urinate more than normal, sometimes with not much urine actually coming out Indigestion, nausea and vomiting (especially when feeling intense pain) Fever and chills when the problem worsens Sometimes stones won’t be painful until they reach a certain size or start moving around in your kidneys. Who’s most at risk for experiencing these symptoms? Statistics show that people likely to deal with kidney stones include: Men (more men than women tend to have kidney stones) Middle-aged people, especially those from about 25–50 years old People taking medications, including diuretics, which can lead to dehydration Anyone who has a history of chronic urinary tract infections, gout, hyperthyroidism and trouble digesting minerals normally People who are inactive
