Kidney stones are a common and painful health problem but with this article you have a better chance of passing out
Drink beverages containing lemon🍋 every day.
Whether you drink lemon juice, real lemonade, lemon-lime drinks or just water with a few lemon slices, the acidic nature of citrus helps so that kidney stones do not form.
Drink a lot of water
Staying extremely well hydrated will help flush the kidney stone from your system.
Aim to drink enough water to produce mostly clear urine. Clear urine is an
indication that your body is extremely well hydrated.
If you can feel your kidney stone but it isn’t painful enough to require treatment, your doctor will probably advise drinking 2 to 3 quarts of water daily until the stone passes.
Mind the way you eat
This is especially effective if you have either calcium or uric acid stones.
If you have calcium stones, cut back on the following foods that make the problem worse: salty foods, dairy products, oysters, tofu, and fatty foods.
If you have uric acid stones, cut back on the following foods containing uric acid: organ meat like liver and kidney, anchovies, sardines, beans, mushrooms, spinach, cauliflower, yeast, and alcohol.
Try herbal remedies.
While no herbal remedy has been scientifically proven to remove kidney stones, many have found that consuming certain herbs, especially in the form of tea, can help to shrink the stones so they pass more easily.
You can try:
- Black tea, which increases urine flow since it is a diuretic.
- Apple cider vinegar, which is said to help dissolve stones.
- Banana stem juice is a well-known treatment for kidney stones in India.
