Naturopathic Kidney Stone Treatment
Kidney stones can be a very painful condition to have. They are crystal-like formations that build up in the kidneys, and are made up of salts and other minerals that are present in your urine. They can vary in size between grains of sand and golf balls, and depending on their size, have the potential to cause serious, and painful, complications in the urinary tract.
People often don’t know or feel if they have kidney stones until the stones move from the kidneys to the ureter (tube connecting kidneys to bladder) or the bladder. When this happens, symptoms can appear that include extreme pain in the back and side, extreme pain that spreads to the groin area, painful urination, discolored or bad-smelling urine as well as nausea and vomiting. If you have kidney stones, you may notice feelings of pain moving from the lower back area where your kidneys are located to the abdomen and groin. This is because the kidney stone moves from the kidneys to the bladder to the urethra. There are several things that are believed to increase your likelihood of developing kidney stones. If your urine contains too much calcium, uric acid, or other crystal-forming materials then it is a good environment for kidney stone formation.
