Kidney Stone Treatment with Homeopathic Medicine

Kidney stones are clumps developed from solidified crystals in the kidney or urinary tract. The urine has all the ingredients that form the stone, but all these ideally pass through without our knowledge. When there is an imbalance in any of these substances, the crystals cluster together into stones. The size of the stone can be as small as a grain of sand to one as large as the size of a golf ball. The most commonly found kidney stone in humans is usually made of calcium oxalate. Other rare varieties of kidney stones include those made up of cystine, struvite (magnesium, ammonium, and phosphate), calcium phosphate, uric acid, etc.

Kidney stones are one of the most painful of urologic disorders. Men tend to be affected more frequently than women.

Symptoms of kidney stone

Causes of Kidney stone formation

Certain foods may promote stone formation in people who are susceptible. This stone formation is enhanced when there is an increased intake of calcium, calcium oxalate, uric acid or salt in our diet, with an inadequate intake of fluids. A positive family history (genetic tendency) also makes a person prone to kidney stone formation.

Certain foods that increase the risk for kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals include Spinach, rhubarb, chocolate, peanuts, cocoa, beet, coffee, cola, nuts, strawberries, tomato juice, grapefruit juice, apple juice, soda (acidic and contains phosphorus), all types of tea, and berries.

Kidney stones can cause a range of symptoms, and the severity and nature of these symptoms can vary depending on factors such as the size and location of the stone. Common symptoms of kidney stones include:

1) Severe Pain: One of the most distinctive symptoms of kidney stones is intense pain, typically felt in the back, side, or lower abdomen. The pain may come and go and may radiate to the groin and lower abdomen. The severity of the pain can be compared to childbirth.

2) Painful Urination: Kidney stones can cause pain or a burning sensation during urination.

3) Frequent Urination: Individuals with kidney stones may feel the need to urinate more frequently than usual.

4) Blood in Urine: Hematuria, or blood in the urine, is a common symptom of kidney stones.

5) Cloudy or Foul-Smelling Urine: Kidney stones can sometimes cause changes in the appearance and odor of urine.

6) Nausea and Vomiting: Some people with kidney stones may experience nausea and vomiting.

7) Urinary Urgency: A sense of urgency to urinate, even if only small amounts of urine are produced.

8) Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): In some cases, kidney stones can be associated with urinary tract infections, leading to symptoms such as fever, chills, and discomfort.

It's important to note that not everyone with kidney stones will experience all of these symptoms, and some individuals may have stones without experiencing any noticeable symptoms.

In many cases, kidney stones that are less than 5 mm in size have a higher likelihood of passing out of the body spontaneously, especially if they are located in the lower part of the urinary tract. However, whether a kidney stone will pass on its own depends on various factors, including the stone's size, composition, shape, and the individual's anatomy.


Here are some general observations:

1) Size: Stones that are 4 mm or smaller have a good chance of passing spontaneously. Stones between 5 mm and 10 mm may pass but might require medical intervention. Stones larger than 10 mm may require medical treatment.

2) Location: Stones located closer to the bladder are more likely to pass on their own.

3)Symptoms: The presence of symptoms, such as severe pain, blood in the urine, or signs of infection, may indicate the need for medical intervention.

4) Individual Factors: Individual factors such as hydration, overall health, and the presence of other medical conditions can influence the likelihood of spontaneous passage.



Diagnosis can be done by imaging studies (like a CT scan or ultrasound), to determine the size and location of the stone.



For smaller stones, your healthcare provider may recommend increasing fluid intake to help flush the stone out. Pain management medications and medications to facilitate stone passage (such as tamsulosin) may also be prescribed. In some cases, if the stone is not passing on its own, medical procedures like lithotripsy (shock wave therapy) or ureteroscopy may be considered.

Suggestion about homeopathic treatment

If the stone size is larger, or the stone is impacted, or there are multiple stones, then the patient is better treated surgically.
