How to Pass a Kidney Stone Naturally

  • Kidney stones are very painful and are normally passed on their own, but there is a need to see your doctor if you are in a lot of pain. Too much pain could imply that the stone is too large and has clogged the urinary track, which means the Doctor will decide what type of treatment is best for you and your health. Although many can pass stones naturally it is always best to consult a Doctor when dealing with this type of health issue.
  • When trying to pass a kidney stone naturally you will need to go on a diet called akalinization therapy. This type of therapy is used to create less acid in the urinary track to allow you to pass a stone more easily. The first thing to remember, when trying to pass a kidney stone is to drink a lot of water. Water will help you pass and prevent further stones. If you are an athlete you will need to drink 10 8 oz glasses of water each day and if you are not an athlete you will need to drink 8 8 oz glasses of water.

  • It is important to drink water more than any other type of liquid, but citrus juices are even better to drink. Juices like lemonade and grapefruit juice can be a substitute for potassium, which is often used to treat stones in the hospital. if you are going to use this method of helping to pass kidney stones you will need to drink the juice without sugar as this will be more benificial. If you are unable to drink the juice without sugar you can try a low sugar juice or an orange juice.
  • The second most important part of the diet is to watch how much protein you eat. Too much protein is not a good idea when trying to pass a stone naturally. The protein tends to cause salt to build up in the urinary track, which in turn will not help kidney stones pass easily.
  • When passing a stone its best to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. You must know which fruits are good to eat a lot of and which to limit. The fruits and vegetables that are consumed are good for your body overall, but will help your body pass stones because they break down the salts that pass through the urinary tract.
