Doctors consider renal colic one of the moststrong painful sensations, possible in humans, and those patients who fully knew what it is are in full agreement with them. Kidney stones often cause kidney colic - an attack of acute pain is caused by the inability of a normal outflow of urine from the kidneys. The stone gets stuck in the ureter and partially or completely fences it, and besides it damages surrounding tissues with its hard and, sometimes, sharp edges. Folk remedies can help get rid of kidney stones, but it's very important not to harm yourself when applying them. We will tell you what to look for when treating kidney stones with folk remedies.
Symptoms of the presence of kidney stones and the possibility of treatment with folk remedies
Although the exact causes of the appearance of kidney stonesphysicians argue until now, it is known that various metabolic disturbances lead to their appearance. Such violations can be very different, and accordingly, stones also have different chemical composition. The purpose of treatment is to partially dissolve and remove stones from the body, and it can be achieved by a variety of means, including traditional medicine methods.
The use of folk remedies can bringgreat relief, but can also vice versa, to provoke a painful attack of urolithiasis. The whole thing is just in different composition of stones - the means that helped one person to dissolve them, the other can cause the opposite effect. Before choosing a folk remedy for treatment, you need to find out exactly what type and size you have kidney stones.
Kidney stones are not only a serious illness andunpleasant, but also lasting. Even if you have got rid of them, for example, surgically, the probability of their repeated formation is high, this disease is prone to relapse.
To suspect the presence of stones allow:
too frequent urination with a small amount of effluent urine
general deterioration of the condition, accompanied by nausea, vomiting and, sometimes, painful urination
high temperature (up to 38-40 degrees) simultaneously with the appearance in the urine of a precipitate similar to sand or the increase of the stench of urine
appearance in the urine of blood
the appearance of pain in the groin, in the lower abdomen, in the lower back or under the ribs (from the side or from the back)
change in the intensity of pain with a frequency of 20 minutes to an hour
the appearance or intensification of pain after physical exertion, the intake of large amounts of fluid or the intake of diuretics
However, to determine whether these are really stones inkidneys, as well as to find out their nature and size can only the doctor. The fact that these symptoms are typical for a number of diseases, some of which require urgent intervention of the surgeon. So, first of all - an urgent trip to the doctor, and only when the diagnosis of urolithiasis is not in doubt, you can start thinking about the choice for its treatment of folk remedies.

Any stone formed in the kidney is a mixtureorganic substances and insoluble mineral salts. With the help of folk remedies, it is possible to achieve the destruction of such a stone and the relatively safe removal of its remains together with urine. However, the solubility and shape of the stones depend on their composition.
The most common stones are:
Oxalatite stones. These are dense black formations with spines onSurfaces consisting of salts of oxalic or ascorbic acid. Dissolve them is impossible, large stones are removed surgically. Sometimes folk remedies can achieve natural excretion of oxalates along with urine, but only while they are very small. Usually folk remedies are used to reduce the risk of re-education of such stones.
Phosphate stones. Soft and loose, with a smooth surface, whitestones from salts of phosphoric acid. They dissolve quite easily, including folk remedies, and are amenable to treatment with a special diet.
Carbonate stones. Soft smooth stones of white color, consist of calcium salts of carbonic acid. They also dissolve very easily, with the same means as phosphate stones.
Uranium stones. Brown rounded formations, consisting of salts of uric acid. They dissolve easily and are amenable to various types of treatment. Sometimes a proper diet is enough to get rid of urate stones.
