Kidney Stone


Kidney stones have become an increasingly common medical problem in Western society. Mainly due to poor dietary habits.


  • Nausea and vomiting
  • A frequent urge to urinate
  • Blood and sediment in the urine
  • Chills and fever, if the stone causes a blockage and an infection

Root Causes

  • Inactivity
  • A poor diet
  • Dehydration
  • Urinary pH balance
  • A magnesium and potassium deficiency
  • An inherited inability to absorb calcium properly or to excrete much italic acid

Food to avoid

Eliminate foods that contain high amounts of Oxalic acid from your diet. By far the worst offenders are spinach, rhubarb, tomatoes, collards, eggplant, beets, celery, summer squash, sweet potatoes, peanuts, almonds, blueberries, strawberries, concord grapes, parsley, and cocoa.


Many people with kidney stones suffer from dehydration. A lack of fluids increases the mineral concentration in the kidneys and, with it the chance that stones will crystallize.
