Causes of the presence and formation of stones in the kidneys and a recipe with lemon, blueberry and stevia to eliminate them naturally.

More than 12% of men and 7% of women will have to deal with kidney stones at some point in their lives. Once you have suffered from them, the statistics say that you are more likely to have them again. Statistics say they have an 80% chance of recurrence.

Causes of kidney stones

Conventional doctors will tell us that common causes include too much calcium, too many vitamin supplements, too much animal protein, and genetics.

Genetics can lead to a predisposition to kidney stones, but a learned behavior (diet) within the family is the reason why stones occur more often.

Some medications, supplements, sodas, industrial animal products, table salt, tap water, and an acidic diet can lead to kidney stone formation.

A whole food, unrefined, fresh diet prevents kidney stones.

How to prevent kidney stones

Magnesium citrate, a B complex vitamin with extra vitamin B6, lots of stevia-sweetened lemonade along with a healthy diet will not allow kidney stones of significant size and shape.

Harvard researchers found that 180 mg of magnesium and 10 mg of B6 taken daily can actually prevent 92.3% of kidney stones. Other studies show huge reductions, with magnesium only in doses of 500 mg a day.

Diet is crucial

Organic, raw and fresh products are the basis of a healthy diet. Avoid refined foods, including table salt, sugars, and refined flours.

Drink a lot of water. Purified water has numerous health benefits, and distilled water is very pure and good for you if you get enough of it.

Drink stevia-sweetened lemonade every day. Lemons also reduce the likelihood of kidney stones.

If you drink coffee, switch to other types of drinks, especially infusions. Studies show that black and green tea reduce the chances of developing kidney stones. Don’t eat conventional factory farm animal products.

Avoid poor quality healthy supplements and protein powders.

Other foods that prevent and eliminate kidney stones include organic apple cider vinegar; dandelion root, olive oil, kidney beans, and watermelon.

Natural remedies for kidney stones

Drink a half gallon of stevia-sweetened cranberry lemonade (organic and unbleached) per 100 pounds of body weight each day. (See below for the recipe).

Be careful with cranberry juice in the long run. In the short term, it is fine to help flush stones from the kidneys and to treat a urinary infection.

Cranberry juice contains polyphenolic compounds that dissolve kidney stones and make them leave the body through urine.

But long-term use has been shown in some studies to possibly cause stone formation, probably due to its high oxalic acid content.

Also drink a cup of apple cider vinegar and eat a tablespoon of unrefined black molasses every day every day, to balance the body’s pH.

If you’re shopping for a tincture or tea, take a look at the following herbs that have been shown time and time again to help remove kidney stones painlessly and quickly:

  • The nettle leaf: helps maintain the flow of water through the kidneys and bladder and helps prevent the formation of crystals in stones.
  • Hydrangea root:  behaves as a powerful diuretic and is also an antilitic herb, which expels and prevents kidney stones.
  • Gravel Root –  Offers defense against kidney stones and increases urine flow. It also plays a role in maintaining an alkaline body by expelling excess uric acid, a cause of kidney stones.
  • Marshmallow root: removes toxins and soothes cell membranes in the urinary system, making it easier to release kidney stones.
  • Horsetail herb:  helps regulate calcium stored in the body and relieves inflammation of the urinary tract.
  • Uva ursi leaves : increase kidney circulation and limit the acid content in the urine.
  • Corn silk: reduces the risk of kidney stones, recurrent infections and helps treat the bladder.
  • Goldenrod flowers: fight urinary tract infections and help to expel kidney stones.
