A kidney stone also known as renal calculus or urolithiasis; a solid concretion or crystal aggregation formed in kidneys through dietary minerals in urine or when the normal balance of water, salts, minerals, and other substances found in urine changes. Most kidney stones are calcium; they form when the calcium levels in urine change. Stones [calculi] develops in kidneys, ureters that carry urine from kidneys to bladder or bladder due to precipitation of crystal formation in urine. Mostly, stones composed of calcium salts while the rest consists of uric acid, magnesium salts or production of protein breakdown. Stones are more likely to form if there is increased concentration of these substances in urine, either due to their increased concentration in blood or decreased urine production. Kidney and ureter stones may injure the lining membranes around them and cause bleeding or may obstruct outflow from kidney or ureter, causing ureter colic and if untreated Hydronephrosis, distention with urine of one or both kidneys.
Factors that change urine balance include: when water intake not enough, one should try to drink enough water to keep urine clear, unless not restricted by any other reason. When there is not enough water: salts, minerals, and other substances in urine can stick together and form a stone. It’s most common cause of kidney stones. Many medical conditions can affect the normal balance and cause stones to form gout are one such example. Also, people who have inflammatory bowel disease or who have had surgery on their intestines may not absorb fat from their intestines in a normal way. This change the way intestines process calcium and other minerals and may lead to kidney stones. In some cases, parathyroid glands produce too much of a hormone, which leads to higher calcium levels and possibly calcium kidney stones. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) for kidney stones makes the urine less acidic, which makes uric acid kidney stone formation less likely.
There is also possible increase in risk of forming calcium kidney stones when:
>an increase in amount of sodium in the blood
>fluid retention (edema), especially in people with high blood pressure, heart failure, or liver disease (cirrhosis) might develop
Preventing kidney stones through diet: If you had kidney stones before, you are more likely to get them again; but by eating in planned way, further development can be prevented and existing one may be diluted.
•Drink plenty of water, unless not restricted. Water helps to wash away the substances that could form stones. You are drinking enough water when urine is clear or light in color yellow. Increasing total fluid intake, with the aim of increasing urine output to more than three liters per day.
•Eat less salt and salty foods, milk, cheese, and yogurt are all good sources of calcium.
And follow in lifestyle;
>Avoid grapefruit juice
>Coffee, teas, colas, and chocolate limit in daily life
>Dairy and carbonated products to limit
>Dark green vegetables such as spinach, beets, berries, and cranberries
>Drink lemonade made from real lemons (not lemon flavoring) and orange juices. It is high in citrate, which may help prevent kidney stones.
>High dietary intake of animal protein, sodium, refined sugars, fructose and high fructose corn syrup and apple juice increase the risk of kidney stone formation.
>Limit consuming soft drinks which contain phosphoric acid to flavor the soft drink, to less than one liter of soft drink per week.
>Limit or keep up intake of calcium 1.0-1.2 g per day, sodium less than 2.3 g per day, vitamin C to less than 1.0 g per day.
>Oranges and sweet potatoes more in routine
Symptoms though may vary individual basis;
•Blood in urine
•Frequent urge to urinate, or pain or difficulty with urination
•Inabilities to find a comfortable position, person having kidney stones often pace the floor
•Nausea and vomiting with ongoing flank pain
•Sharp pain that start in back and side, and movements toward groin or testicles
Sometimes symptoms of; fever and chills, painful urination, pus in urine, and cloudy or foul-smelling urine
Signs of a urinary tract infection
•Bladder stones are most likely to form in chronic cystitis bladder infection or chronic retention of urine or can cause bleeding from bladder, difficult and painful passing of urine and other lower abdominal pain.
•Dehydration from low fluid intake is a major reason in stone formation.
Acupuncture TriOrigin a powerful tool assists qualitative lives. The concept helped many who were not successfully treated through conventional medicine. Several conditions can be dramatically improved or remedied in full including STONES be it of Cholelithiasis or Urolithiasis. Acupuncture a traditionally accomplished through insertion of very fine micro needles at certain energy meridians, or energy flow channels flowing along the meridians in compact miniature system of body only on hands. In energy concept, stones are produced when excess of coldness in kidney meridian or organs when stone is localized in renal pelvis. How stones are formed through excretory system! Basic energy of Heat (circulatory system), and branch energy of coldness (excretory system)! Better option to put colors to aide in syndrome! Also, maintenance of dilute urine by vigorous fluid therapy is beneficial in all forms of nephrolithiasis, so increasing urine volume is a key principle for the prevention of kidney stones.
