Kidney stones occur when salts in the urine form a solid crystal. These stones can block the flow of urine and cause infection, kidney damage or even kidney failure. Pain (renal colic) is often the first sign. Most kidney stones can be treated without surgery, but always seek immediate medical attention if you are suffering strong pain.
The risk of kidney stones is about one in 10 for men and one in 35 for women. After having one kidney stone, the chance of getting a second stone is between five and 10 per cent each year. Up to half the people with a first kidney stone will get a second stone within five years. After five years, the risk declines. However, some people keep getting stones their whole lives.
You may not have symptoms until the stones move down the ureters. These are the tubes that carry urine into your bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. The main symptom is severe pain. It starts suddenly and may go away suddenly:
Pain may be felt in the belly area or side of the back. Pain may move to the groin area (groin pain) or testicles (testicle pain).
Other symptoms can include:
Abnormal urine color
Blood in the urine
Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.
Facts Kidney stones has been increasing over the past 30 years. In the late 1970s, less than 4 percent of the population had stone-forming disease. By the early 1990s, the portion of the population with the disease had increased to more than 5 percent. Stones occur more frequently in men. The prevalence of kidney stones rises dramatically as men enter their 40s and continues to rise into their 70s. For women, the prevalence of kidney stones peaks in their 50s. Once a person gets more than one stone, other stones are likely to develop.
Our extensive expertise and evidence backed research tells us the following
Homoeopathy is the non-invasive treatment of choice for kidney stones less than 15 mm
Homoeopathy is effective in 96% cases and completely cures 76% cases
Our study not only proves that homoeopathy is efficient but also proves it brings about speedy cure where 80% cases recover in 6 months of commencement of treatment
It has been long assumed that lower calyx renal calculi are not favorably managed by homoeopathy. Our study proves beyond doubt that this is a myth because here we see a success rate of 70% in lower calyceal stones
It is also established that the success of homoeopathy in calculi in ureter, bladder and urethra is 97% and once the calculi is beyond UV junction the success is 100% provided the calculi are less than 15 mm in size
