How Does Our Kidney Stone Treatment Benefit You?

Kidney stones are also called nephrolithiasis, urolithiasis or renal calculi. In this condition the hard deposits are formed of minerals or salt in the kidney, that affect any part of the urinary tract i.e. from kidney to gall bladder. Usually, the crystals start sticking to each other and grow in size that leads to painful symptoms. The kidney stones are formed due to excess body weight, diet, medical conditions and certain supplements and medications. The symptoms associated with kidney stones are severe pain, pain in lower abdomen and groin, burning sensation while urinating, pink or brown urine, cloudy or foul smelling urine, nausea, vomiting, fever, etc.

‘Ashmari’ is the term for kidney stones in ayurveda. The stones are formed in two ways:

  1. By stagnation and super saturation of urine crystals forming substances like calcium, oxalate and uric acid- than the fluid in your urine can dilute
  2. The urine may lack the substances that prevent the crystals from sticking together, creating an environment for kidney stones to grow.

Ayurvedic treatment for kidney stones consist of a detoxification therapy- Panchakarma, that helps in releasing stored toxins, cleansing and restoring bodies' innate healing ability. This therapy includes a series of massages, steam therapy, purgation, enemas to bladder, etc. This therapy helps in balancing the vitiated doshas. Along with this, some herbal medications are provided that further includes diet and lifestyle management. This helps in living symptom free conditions in the long run.

Treatment

What makes Elite Ayurveda's kidney stone therapy unique? Each case of kidney stone therapy in Ayurveda is unique since medications are customized for each patient for best success. It's crucial to remember that, despite their numerous similarities in symptoms, gall bladder stones and kidney stones are two completely separate health issues. People who have had kidney stones in the past are more likely to develop gall bladder stones. Begin your treatment journey at Elite Ayurveda by receiving a personalized diagnosis of your health condition and beginning your healing path for long-term relief.

Types of kidney stones:

  1. Calcium stones: These are the most usual type of kidney stones that forms calcium oxalate. Oxalate is absorbed from a daily diet that includes certain vegetables, nuts, chocolates, etc. This type of kidney stone is also common in people suffering from metabolic conditions like renal tubular acidosis.
  2. Struvite stones: Struvite is the result of the response from the urinary tract infection. These stones grow real quick and become quite large, sometimes with very little symptoms.
  3. Uric acid stones: People with diabetes or metabolic syndrome are more likely to develop uric acid stones if they lose too much fluid due to chronic diarrhea or malabsorption, consume a high-protein diet, or have diabetes or metabolic syndrome. Uric acid stones are also genetic in some cases.
  4. Cystine stones: These stones arise in persons who have cystinuria, a genetic condition in which the kidneys discharge too much of a certain amino acid.

Risk factors associated with kidney stones:

  1. Personal or family history: You're more likely to get kidney stones if someone in your family has had them. You're more likely to acquire another kidney stone if you've already had one or more.
  2. Dehydration: Kidney stones might be increased if you don't drink enough water each day. People who live in hot, dry areas or who sweat a lot may be more vulnerable than others.
  3. Diet: A high-protein, sodium (salt), and sugar diet may raise your risk of some forms of kidney stones that can be caused due to unhealthy eating. This is particularly true if you eat a high-sodium in your diet. Too much salt in your diet increases the quantity of calcium in your kidneys that is to be filtered, and increases your risk of kidney stones dramatically.
  4. Obesity: An increased incidence of kidney stones has been associated to a high body mass index (BMI), a big waist circumference, and weight gain.
  5. Digestive diseases and surgery: Changes in the digestive process such as gastric bypass surgery, inflammatory bowel illness, or persistent diarrhea might disrupt calcium and water absorption, increasing the quantity of stone-forming chemicals in your urine.
  6. Other medical problems that might raise your risk of kidney stones include renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism, and recurrent urinary tract infections.
  7. Vitamin C, nutritional supplements, laxatives (when used excessively), calcium-based antacids, and some migraine or depression drugs can all raise your risk of kidney stones.

Kidney Stone Treatment, Naturally

Root Cause Treatment

“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”

Wisdom of Ayurveda

“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”

More Than Just Medicines

"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."
