Flush Kidney Stones with More Than Water

Water is by far the most important ingredient in any kidney stone prevention or home remedy treatment plan. Water is the key in many natural treatments used with many ailments because it flushes the body of impurities and keeps the body running efficiently. If you aren’t drinking enough, your urine will simply have higher concentrations of substances that can form stones. Urine should be a light yellow. Waiting until you are thirsty is often too late. Thirst usually signifies dehydration. Increase your water intake during periods of high activity and visiting warmer climates. Doctors will frequently recommend only water to flush out painful kidney stones. Some patients will manage to flush out painful kidney stones by simply drinking large quantities of water or a period of days. Other patients may wait for weeks or months to pass their painful kidney stones.

Let it sit for 20 minutes. Pour the mixture through a strainer or coffee filter over a tea cup. This will remove the herbs, allowing you to drink the hot water in which they were steeped. Drink a cup of the tea in the morning, and a cup at night.

The best kidney stone remedy is prevention. Be aware of what is going into your body and what the long term ramifications could be. These simple kidney stone prevention tips may save you from an unimaginably painful situation.

  • Water is essential for your body's health. About 80% of people are dehydrated and are not even aware of it. The best guide to water consumption is to drink about half your body weight in ounces of water per day. If you weigh 180 pounds, you should drink 90 ounces of water each and every day. This is not as easy as it sounds, but should definitely become a primary objective.
  • Many kidney stone sufferers are B-6 deficient. Therefore, you should consider taking a complete B-complex vitamin which will drastically reduce your risk.
  • Avoid soft drinks in large quantities, especially those which contain phosphorus and can lead to kidney stone formation. To further confuse the issue an occasional soft drink containing phosphoric acid may be beneficial. Some researchers have concluded phosphoric acid may actually assist in dissolving kidney stones. Read our article titled “Do Soft Drinks Cause Kidney Stones Or Cure Them ".
  • Enjoy plenty of vegetable juices and fruit juices with high levels of citrates. The best choices are cranberry, carrot, grape, apple, and orange juices. Citrates reduce the buildup of uric acid and help eliminate the formation of calcium salts which cause most kidney stones.
  • Be aware of your diet. What you consume can help or hinder your health as well. A few simple rules to remember are, avoid high sugar foods, watch your red meat consumption, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables which contain fibre that assists your body to flush and pass your kidney stones.
  • Drink beverages containing lemons every day. Whether you drink real lemonade, lemon juice or just water with a few lemon slices, the acidic nature helps in dissolving kidney stones.
  • Ask about prescription drugs. Your doctor may prescribe a diuretic such which reduces the rate at which you lose calcium in your urine, or allopurinol, which can decrease uric acid formation.
