How to Deal with Kidney Stones

Most people who suffer from kidney stones receive typical advice such as avoiding calcium and calcium products. Calcium is not the issue.

If calcium does not get processed in its natural way, it forms sharp crystal-like structures in places such as the kidneys, the joints and the blood vessels.

New study concluded that calcium citrate  supplements in a citrate or malate can protect against such sharp, abnormal deposits. Having worked with a number of patients with this issue, it is my suggestion that Magnesium be the focus.

So called “Soft water” has been shown to correlate much higher with kidney stones, as has well water, but be sure to:

  1. Get the water tested regularly.
  2. Use a high-quality reverse osmosis filter.

Aside from the above, switching to more a vegetarian or vegetable based diet is also quite helpful. Foods such as parsley and cilantro are an absolute must.

Avoid the following:

  • instant coffee
  • rhubarb
  • beetroot
  • spinach
  • “white food” such as white rice, breads, crackers etc.

If you have a history of stones, consider taking silica as a preventative. This, along with the above (including Magnesium) will go a long way to helping.
