Kidney stones are created when minerals that normally float free within the kidneys combine into crystals. When this mineral waste overloads and the body has too little fluid – crystals develop on the inner surfaces of your kidneys
Three types of kidney stones:
1.Calcium salts are the most common (75-85%)
2.Struvite or non-calcium containing crystals (10-15%)
3. Uric acid crystals (5-8%)
Note: Urolithiasis is a medical term used to describe stones in the urinary tract.
The warning signs include extreme pain in your back or side that will not go away, blood in your urine, fever and chills, vomiting, urine that smells bad or looks cloudy and a burning feeling when you urinate. Don’t ignore these signals – it’s your body telling you there is something wrong.
Understand the cause to avoid the problem
Many health experts agree that stones are created by poor dietary habits, such as, the consumption of too much fat, calcium (usually from commercial dairy products), large amounts of animal protein (red meat, chicken and fish), refined sugar (cookies, cakes, ice cream and pies) and too much alcohol and refined-commercial grade salt.
In addition, excessive use of antacids and adrenal exhaustion may contribute to the problem.
Stop your suffering by adopting a plant-based diet, low in protein and starches, including plenty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. Within just a few weeks, you will strengthen your ability to prevent kidney stones and improve your overall health.
