Kidney Stones and Ayurvedic Treatment
Have you ever had a kidney stone or are you suffering one and wondering how they can be treated using ayurvedic medicines and treatment? First, you should understand what they are and they are stones, which can be any size, that are located in the kidneys. Normally they leave the body on their own by traveling through the kidneys, but sometimes they can be too large and can block the tracks. When this occurs they block the passage of any urine and that is what causes the immense pain that comes with the stones.
Effects of Kidney Stones
There are numerous different ayurvedic medicines that can be used during the treatment, either to help the stone pass or to help with the pain.
- Problems or urgency when it comes to urinating
- Blood in the urine
- Severe pain in the lower abdomen
- Nausea and vomiting
You should start by drinking plenty of water and eat less fruit, calcium based food and particular vegetables, including cauliflower, cabbage and spinach. One of the most effect methods of getting rid of these stones is through the use of the henna plant bark or mehendi, which can be used by taking 20 parts water and 1 part bark and boil it down until it is one-fourth the original amount. When this is complete, then have the concoction 2 to 3 times daily in 20 to 30 ml doses.
You can also do the same thing using the seeds and leaves of a radish, or mooli, or a soup made of horse-gram, or dolichus biflorus, as a food supplement. Also, make sure to take Varuna, Paashanabheda, Kshaara parpati, Chandra-prabhaa vati,Ashmari hara kashaaya and Shilajit, while taking Gokshura kada for the pain 3 to 4 times each day in 15ml doses. You can also take Ber patthar bashma, which is another remedy that is effective against the stones.
However, before you start to take any of these medicines, you should visit your ayurvedic physician to get them prescribed and to see what other medicine they recommend. They would also be able to tell you what foods and other items that you should be avoiding to ensure that the stone passes easily and quickly. They will also be able to tell you whether or not you would need to have to have any procedures done and, if so, what symptoms to look for.
