kidneystone urolithiasis Homeopathic Treatment

Kidney stones(Urolithiasis) or Renal calculi, are solid pieces of material that forms in the kidney out of substances in the urine. They are composed mostly of calcium oxalate. A stone may stay in the kidney or break loose and travel down the urinary tract. It is a painful condition.

Different types of Kidney stones(Urolithiasis) occur in different parts of the world, and dietary factors probably play a part in determining the varying patterns. There are four major types of Kidney stones(Urolithiasis). The most common type of stone contains calcium. A struvite stone may form after an infection in the urinary system. These stones contain the mineral magnesium and the waste product ammonia. A uric acid stone may form when there is too much acid in the urine. If you tend to form uric acid stones, you may need to cut back on the amount of meat you eat. Cystine stones are rare. Cystine is one of the building blocks that make up muscles, nerves, and other parts of the body. Cystine can build up in the urine to form a stone. The disease that causes cystine stones runs in families.

If you have Kidney stones(Urolithiasis) it is important to know that even small stones can damage kidney tissue if left untreated. A kidney stone also known as renal stone or calculi is a hard mineral and crystalline material formed within the kidney or urinary tract. The kidneys filter waste products from the blood and add them to the urine. When waste materials in the urine do not dissolve completely, Kidney stones(Urolithiasis) are formed.

Commonly recognized types of Kidney stones(Urolithiasis)

  1. These stones can be formed by excess salt in your diet that can arouse excretion of calcium in the urine and reduce in intake of salt can prevent formation of such stones. Many people came to know about their Kidney stones(Urolithiasis) until stones enters the ureter and cause severe pain. Nausea, vomiting and back and abdominal pain are the symptoms of Kidney stones(Urolithiasis).

Symptoms & Signs of Kidney stones(Urolithiasis)

Kidney stones(Urolithiasis) can remain asymptomatic until they obstruct the flow of urine. When obstruction to the flow of urine occurs at some point of time, the patient starts experiencing acute symptoms. Patient usually presents with the most agonizing pain in the lower back just below the ribs, which often extends into the groin area (described as ?loin to groin? radiation of pain). The patient may also experience nausea, vomiting, blood in the urine (haematuria), restlessness and fever (if infection is present). Stones less than 5 mm in size usually pass out spontaneously; however the majority of stones greater than 6 mm require some form of intervention, especially so if the stone is stuck causing persistent obstruction and/or infection of the urinary tract.

Causes of Kidney stone (urolitheasis)

Certain foods may promote stone formation in people who are susceptible. This stone formation is enhanced when there is increased intake of calcium, calcium oxalate, uric acid or salt in our diet, with an inadequate intake of fluids. A positive family history (genetic tendency) also makes a person prone to kidney stone formation.Certain foods that increase the risk for kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals include:Spinach, rhubarb, chocolate, peanuts, cocoa, beet, coffee, cola, nuts, strawberries, tomato juice, grapefruit juice, apple juice, soda (acidic and contains phosphorus), all types of tea, and berries

Infection or obstruction may play a part in kidney stone formation also. Sometimes they occur when the level of blood calcium is abnormally high. Occasionally, stones may develop when the blood level of uric acid is too high, usually from over consumption of meat. Excessive dietary intake of calcium and oxalate and low fluid intake have also been associated with formation of stones. In most cases, however the cause is not known. It has been found that certain persons are having a tendency of forming recurrent urinary stones. Even after treating successfully once, they tend to form stones again and again.

  • * Hereditary: 1] : People suffering from gout, parathyroid problems, inflammatory bowel diseases and chronic urinary tract infection are predisposed to stone formation 2) Increased urinary concentration due to dehydrations ? Most stones arise in the kidney when urine becomes supersaturated with salts and crystals that are capable of forming stones.
  • Hyperparathyroidism may also lead to hyper calcuria.
  • Increase of calcium intake i.e. more than the required amount (e.g. intake of too much of chocolates, strawberries, etc
  • Urinary inadequate drainage ? slow obstructive urine flow will encourage salt precipitation due to stagnation
  • Vitamin A deficiency
  • Increased intake of vitamin D, Calcium, protein, tea or fruit juice
  • Prolonged immobility where stone formation is due to hypercalcuria.
  • Metabolic order
  • Decrease in fluid intake may precipitate formation of stones
  • Prolonged bed rest
  • Chronic use of antacids containing calcium

Homoeopathic Treatment in Kidney stones(Urolithiasis)

Kidney stones(Urolithiasis), acute as well as chronic,  can be effectively treated with Homeopathic Medicines. Homeopathic treatment  can avoid surgery in many cases. It is highly recommended in cases where tendency of having recurrent stones is there. Patient?s case history is studied in detail and a well selected homeopathic medicine is given which removes this tendency from patient?s body so that he does not have any more stones again. It has especially proved very helpful in cases of stones where surgery or other procedure is not advisable due to various reasons.
