One common misconception about stones is that eating foods high in
calcium can cause stones. It is true that stones are often made of
mostly calcium, but studies confirm that those who`s diets are high in
calcium have the lowest incidents to those with the lowest. Kidney
stones can pass in a matter of hours, but sometimes it may be days
before they pass.
80% of stones are made of calcium crystals that form as part of
having too high fat diet. Red meats, high fat foods, sugar and white
flower are some of the major contributors to this condition. Another
15% are made up of uric acid crystals which comes from your body being
out of balance with too much acidity and too little alkaline. The key
to this condition is to bring the body back to a proper balance. The
remaining 5% of stones rare and therefore we will be focusing on the

You are just a stones throw from the natural alternatives that
aid the body in preventing Kidney Stones.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #1: Drinking lots of water is
useful for many functions in the body. For kidney stones it helps lower
the build up of uric acid and helps keep the kidneys flushed so the
don`t build up calcium crystals in the urine. We believe it is best to
drink half your body weight in ounces of water. If you are 150lbs
(68kg), you should drink a little more then a 2 liter bottle of water a
day as an example.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #2: As a herbal
treatment Vasnaga and Varuna have been used for
thousands of years and now have clinical evidence that they aid the
body with inhibiting the growth of kidney stones. Vasnaga can help
reduce the pain of kidney stones. Varuna has been used in Ayurvedic
medicine for over 3500 years and helps prevent the formation of
- Natural cures for kidney stones #3: Start eating more parsley.
This little known gem is used by most as a garnish that often goes
uneaten and if one does use it they do so as a breath freshener. Parsley
is a great natural breath freshener, but it has many beneficial herbal
uses from blood pressure, to allergies and is also believed to help
prevent the formation of stones.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #4: Magnesium is useful
in the prevention of all kinds of stones and therefore including more
foods high in this mineral is advisable. Spinach, tofu, and sea food
are good sources. You can also supplement 500 milligrams a day of this
- Natural cures for kidney stones #5: Try Juicing. Drink
three 6oz glass`s of cranberry juice each a day for one week and then
eight ounces a day after that. Juicing has many benefits and fighting
against the development of kidney stones is one of those benefits. It
is best to use this therapy to stop stones from forming rather then for
- Natural cures for kidney stones #6: Many will tell you that
having too much salt in the diet will often lead to the development of
stones. This is true, but what is more true is the imbalance of salt to
potassium leads often leads to stones. More and more studies are
concluding that it is the imbalance of salt to potassium that raises
blood pressure, is a factor in stone development and other conditions.
Eat more foods high in potassium and enjoy the many benefits this
re-balancing will make in your life.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #7: Fight calcium crystals with
more calcium in your diet. Calcium is an important mineral and studies
show that those with higher amounts in their diet suffer far less from
stone. You can also add a supplement of 300 - 500 milligrams a day to
help fight against this condition. Other useful nutrients are
Vitamin B6 and Vitamin D.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #8: Exercise. You didn`t
think you would get out of this with out some exercise did you?
Exercise is an important aspect of a healthy life and strong bones
means the body will use calcium for them and so there is less to enter
the urine where it might cause a problem. Since dehydration is a major
contributor to stone development you need to make sure to stay hydrated
during and after exercise.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #9: Using meditation
techniques not only helps reduce stress which helps bring a balance
of acid/alkaline state in the body so in its self is useful in your
fight against kidney stones.
But also using visualization to bring
healing and to keep the body healthy is also useful. As you begin your
deep breathing begin to visualize your a purple pink color like a dark
hot pink enter into your kidney`s and begin to imagine that you can
feel the warmth of healing taking place. As you breath out imagine a
gray fog leaving your body and with it any illness from with-in. Try
this simple meditation 10 minutes a day for kidney stones. The color magenta,
(purple/pink), is often associated with the kidneys in color therapy.
- Natural cures for kidney stones #10: Deep breathing can
improve many functions in the body. Practicing daily deep breathing
will, in our opinion, aid in better absorption of nutrients, improve
functions including that of the kidneys, relieve stress which causes an
acidic state and increase energy so you can feel like exercising.
All illness in our opinion is
an imbalance of body, mind and spirit. We recommend you eat more
fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish and sea vegetation. Exercise,
meditate, do daily deep breathing and find a spiritual pursuit of your
choice to actively practice.
