Kidneys are two of the most important organs in the body.  They clean the blood, keep the body’s water volume at ideal levels, maintain the level of essential substances and ions in the blood, normalize blood pressure, and do other important things.

How to prevent kidney stones

  • Eat nutritious food:  Cut down meat, calcium, and salt intake from your diet.
  • Drink plenty of water:  Drinking more than 2 ½ liters of fluid every day will decrease the risk of developing kidney stones.
  • Cut down consumption of grapefruit and soda drinks.  These can actually increase the risk of having kidney stones.
  • Consume food items that are high in potassium: (bananas, prunes, apricots, watermelon, and strawberries) and magnesium (cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, spinach, white and black beans) because they decrease the likelihood of kidney stones.
  • Consult your doctor about taking supplements like pyridoxine and magnesium.  These will reduce oxalate, a mineral salt found in kidney stones.

If kidney stones have developed already, you can dissolve them with 1 cup of concentrated lemon juice mixed with 1 quart of water.  Simply drink it twice a day.  But if it can’t dissolve the stones, then see your doctor.  You should also pay attention to other organs like your gallbladder. You can prevent gall stones by watching the level of your cholesterol. Try visiting web md for other helpful health tips.
