NUTRITIONAL CURE FOR KIDNEY and BLADDER STONES

Avoid eating too much meat, broccoli, artichokes and asparagus. Other foods to avoid:

– peanuts and peanut oil

– cocoa, chocolate, coffee

– cabbage (white and red), Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, spinach

– sorrel

– peas, horseradish, tomatoes

Drink lots of water and fruit juice.

Stones can be caused by an excess of assimilated calcium in your system. Taking calcium carbonate to neutralize excess stomach acidity can result in an accumulation of too much calcium.

– Eat fewer dairy products and more grains.

– Drink beetroot juice: cook the beets, mash them in a blender and boil the pulp until the water turns to syrup.

– Avoid eating too many acidifying foods: peanuts, asparagus, artichokes, Brussels sprouts, egg white, fatty broth, processed meats, liver, kidneys, sweetbreads, brain, white flour and derivatives (white bread, biscuits, cakes), strong cheese, hardened fat, refined oils, dried legumes (lentils, peas, beans), semolina, white sugar, tea, alcohol, coffee, chocolate, meat, fish, poultry, game, pasta.

A lack of fibre can also cause bladder or kidney stones to form over time. If you tend to suffer from stones, make sure to eat lots of fibre:

– whole grains (with husks)

– dried legumes (with outer envelope intact)

– cellulose in green vegetables

– pectin in fruit

– bran in whole grain bread

Sitting in a lukewarm bath can alleviate pain during a kidney or bladder stone attack, until a doctor becomes available.

KIDNEY PROBLEMS

A diet that contains too much meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, and too little fruit and vegetables, overloads blood and cells with toxins like purines or uric acid. This puts a strain on your liver and kidneys, which have to work harder to eliminate excess toxins, causing them to become fatigued over the long term. Blood and cells gradually become poisoned, with resulting deposits of toxins in joints and other parts of your organism.

Over time, these deposits cause more and more discomfort, including kidney problems.

– Persons suffering from a digestive ulcer who take large amounts of calcium carbonate to neutralize gastric acidity can develop kidney problems caused by too much calcium in their system.

– Persons who suffer from chronic kidney problems must adhere to a specific diet .

– Factors that are likely to aggravate an existing kidney problem include:

– a lack of minerals

– a lack of water

– congestive heart problems

– nephrotoxins

– excess calcium

– obstructions

Each of these problems should be treated separately.

– Anorexia often causes kidney problems (uremia) over the long term. Every effort should be made to make up for deficiencies caused by a lack of appetite. Increasing overall calorie intake should coincide with a decrease in total protein intake.

– Take Potassium, this mineral reduces the amount of calcium in your urine, which lowers your risk of kidney stones. It can be found in bananas, avocados, figs, beans and potatoes.

– Add magnesium to your potassium and cut your risk of kidney stones dramatically. Food high in magnesium include seeds, nuts, beans, avocados and brocolli. Add any of these to your next salad for a healthy treat.

– Take a wheat cure (for instructions consult the section on Wheat in the Dictionary of Foods).

– Drink large amounts of water – a minimum of 4 pints per day.
