Kidney stones (also known by names such as renal calculi, nephrolithiasis, or urolithiasis) are hardened deposits of minerals and salts that get accumulated in your kidneys.

A Brief Overview of Kidney Stones:

Kidney stones are simply solid masses of minerals, acids, and salts that get accumulated in our kidneys over a long period of time. They can be as small as a grain of sand or as big as a golf ball. Unless you go through ultrasound, you won’t even be able to detect the presence of kidney stones in your body. Large kidney stones that get trapped in your ureter can cause a lot of pain and bleeding too. Ayurvedic treatment for kidney stones makes use of herbs to break and dissolve kidney stones in the body itself, which eventually are filtered out of the body.

One of the most common symptoms of kidney stones is the presence of a mild, persistent pain in your lower back, belly, or side (more commonly known as flank pain). If the stone is small in size, you would hardly feel any pain. However, with kidney stones that are large in size, the pain can be extremely severe. In addition to this, patients also complain of nausea and vomiting, blood in the pee, painful urination, fever, or chills. There are a few different types of kidney stones:

  • Calcium-oxalate and calcium phosphate stones: If your diet has a high proportion of high-oxalate or low-calcium foods, you run the risk of having these kinds of stones in your kidneys.
  • Uric acid stones: Consuming animal proteins (beef, poultry, pork, eggs, and fish) in a higher amount can cause uric acid stones.
  • Struvite stones: If you get recurrent infections, your body can develop staghorn calculus. These are pretty large kidney stones and need to be surgically removed from the body.
  • Cystine stones: An inherited condition called cystinuria causes cystine stones.

You increase your chances of getting kidney stones if you:

  • Don’t drink an adequate amount of water.
  • Eat meat and animal-based protein in a higher amount.
  • Consume foods that are loaded with either sodium or sugar.
  • Have a history of taking protein supplements without any guidance.
  • Take certain medications like diuretics, calcium-based antacids, antiseizure medications, etc.

Apart from the points above, diseases such as cystic fibrosis, cystinuria, a genetic disorder that causes a buildup of cystine, diabetes, gout, high blood pressure, hypercalciuria (high levels of calcium in your blood), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), kidney cysts, osteoporosis, parathyroid disease, primary hyperoxaluria, hemiplegia or paraplegia (types of paralysis), etc. also increase your chances of getting kidney stones. Small kidney stones usually pass out of our bodies on their own, provided you keep yourself well-hydrated. However, large kidney stones can lead to severe health complications such as kidney infections, acute kidney injury, a higher tendency to contract urinary tract infections, and chronic kidney disease.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Kidney Stones

Ayurvedic treatment for kidney stones makes use of potent ayurvedic herbs to break down the stones into smaller pieces and dissolve the kidney stones. Some of the most widely used natural medicines for kidney stones are:

  • Varuna: Varuna is one of the best ayurvedic medicines for kidney stones. The diuretic properties of this herb break down the kidney stones into smaller fragments, which makes it easier for our kidneys to pass those stones out of the body without much issue. This herb has also shown great results in reducing the body’s production of oxalate, a very common component of kidney stones.
  • Pashanabheda: Just like Varuna, Pashanabheda also helps in breaking down the kidney stones into smaller fragments and expelling them out of the body. Apart from this, it soothes the inflammation caused by the kidney stones.
  • Gokshura: The diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties of gokshura improve the overall health of the kidneys. In addition to this, this herb fights kidney infections and helps our kidneys maintain good health.
  • Punarnava: Punarnava has diuretic properties that promote healthy urine flow. This allows your kidneys to flush the toxins out of your body in a smooth manner.

The herbs discussed above treat kidney stones effectively, and they are safe too. However, you should always seek advice from your doctor before consuming any drug, even if it is herbal. In addition to these herbs, there are a few effective home remedies that would help you prevent kidney stones rather easily. Some of them are:

  • Stay Hydrated: If you drink at least 8–10 glasses of water each day, your chances of developing kidney stones go down significantly.
  • Lemon Juice: Lemon juice has a high citrate content that may help in preventing certain kinds of kidney stones. However, as lemons may promote calcium oxalate stones in your body, it will be better if you consult your nephrologist beforehand.
  • Reduce Protein and Salt Consumption: If possible, avoid meat, fish, and other meat-based proteins. Additionally, keep your diet low on salt.
  • Oxalate-Rich Foods: Try to cut down on foods like beets and nuts, which are high- in oxalate.
  • Keep your weight in check: A healthy weight has many benefits, including good kidney health. Go for a morning walk or mild jogging. A hike on an easy trail is also recommended.
  • Limit caffeine and soda intake: Avoid tea and coffee; incorporate fruit juices, lime juice (if permitted), and veggie juices into your daily diet. In addition to this, you can go for dandelion tea, hydrangea tea, etc. to boost your kidney functions. Consult your healthcare provider beforehand, though.
  • Protein Supplements: If you are taking protein supplements, be sure to consume them under an expert’s guidance. Consuming a high amount of protein supplement for a long period of time can increase your risk of getting kidney stones.

Kidney stones are a common ailment and can easily be treated if diagnosed early. It's better that you treat this disease early if you have kidney stones. Large kidney stones are extremely painful, and sometimes you need surgical intervention to remove those stones from the body. Keeping yourself well-hydrated and eating a kidney-friendly diet would help you avoid kidney stones.
