‘Beware of the people who can endure the pain of kidney stone. They can survive anything.’ That sounds funny but is actually not. The pain due to renal stones or kidney stones can be really excruciating.
The bean-shaped organs or the kidneys have been designed to remove waste fluid from your blood. Urine is formed in the kidneys through a filtration of blood. When there is too much of specific wastes and not enough fluid in your blood that can be excreted, these wastes can build up and stick together in your kidneys and these clumps of waste can form kidney stones.
The kidney stone disease is also known as Urolithiasis. At some point in their lifetimes, 1% to 15% of people in the world are affected by kidney stones in their lives. The factors responsible for formation of kidney stones include:
The hallmark of a stone that obstructs ureter or renal pelvis is excruciating pain that radiates from the flank to groin or to the inner thigh. However, some stones may not move at all and may remain silent for a long time. The pain of kidney stones or renal colic is accompanied with urinary urgency, restlessness, blood in urine, sweating, nausea, and vomiting. When stones are smaller than 5mm, they have 90% chances of passing without further intervention. Stones larger than that require help to be broken and to pass out. Even smaller stones may require help of herbs. Herbs can also prevent recurrence of kidney stones and can flush them out with your urine. Consumption of specific herbs with lots of water makes you avoid surgery which is painful and expensive. People who have a family history of kidney stones should take these herbs regularly to avoid the formation of stones and keep their kidney health in shape.
Stop wasting time! Make life difficult for the stones inside your kidney. Crush them with herbs!
