What is Renal Stone / Renal Lithiasis / Nephrolithiasis/ Kidney Stone?
It is accumulation of sedimentation of dissolved minerals from urine on the inner lining of kidney. Generally these are Calcuim Oxalate crystals; however, Urate and Phohate may be there too.
What are causes of Renal Stones?
Researches prove that less intake of water of recommended quantity of 8 – 10 glasses of water a day is the main cause of formation of Renal Stone. Insufficient water intake causes the urine to be acidic which is conducive to the formation of Stone. There are few disease-conditions which increase the formation of stone like Crohn’s disease, Hyperparathyroidism, Renal Tubular Acidosis, Urinary Tract Infections etc.
What are signs and symptoms of Renal Stones?
When stones are in the process of formation, there are no sings and symptoms, the process is absolutely painless. Troubles start when one or more bigger stones dislodge from the calyxes of kidneys and get stuck in the ureter – the tubal structure that connect kidneys to the urinary bladder. Common symptoms are:
1)Severe pain in the groin
2)Burning sensation during urination
3)Blood in the urine
4)Pus in the urine
5)Nausea and vomiting
6)Chill, rigor and fever
7)Increase in frequency of urine
Is it a fact that kidney stones come out through urine while treating with Homeo-medicines?
Expelling out of minute stones always occur with urine naturally; problem arises when stones get bigger; sometimes these get stuck in kidney and assume big sizes. Normal lumen size of ureter is 3mm. Furthermore, there are many constrictions within the ureter. When size of a stone becomes bigger than 3mm., it is stuck in the ureter, and excruciating pain is felt by the patient. Homeo-medicines have the power to dilate the circular muscle fibres of the lumen of the ureter whereby stones are released and often come out through urethra.
However, the process has got its limitations. It is reported that a kidney stone may be as big as a golf ball. Let alone golf ball, if a stone assumes a size of 5 – 6 mm or more, medicines may fail quite aptly and the case becomes a surgical one.
So, choice of homeopathy is subjected to the sizes of stones lying within kidneys. However, if the stone size is smaller, homeopathy is the best option. Moreover, homeopathy is safe, non-hazardous and without any untoward side-effects.
How can Renal Stone formation be prevented?
Renal stone or kidney stone is quite a preventable disease. Just follow the regime below:
1)Drink water 2 – 2.5 L a day regularly;
2)Do some out-door exercises like walking, jogging, skipping, running etc.
3)Calcium rich food retards stone formation;
4)Sodium increases stone formation, so the less salt, the less sodi-bi-carb, the better;
5)Reduce intake of animal proteins, they helps in stone formation;
6)Avoid stone forming foods/drinks like beet, chocolate, spinach, tea, nuts;
7)Though vitamin – C is a friend of ours in many respects, but too much of it leads to citrate stone formation.
