What causes Kidney Stones?
Kidney stones are normally very painful so folks that have had them, want to never have them again.
Kidney stones are symptom of an underlying issue and can have many causes. In the natural healing world, we feel that anything can cause anything so the cause must be looked at very individually.
The kidney stone itself is a uric acid deposit, coming from improper protein metabolism and drainage issues in the kidney. A simple cause of kidney stones can be dehydration, lack of drinking good quality water and getting mineral or sea salt to help the kidneys work correctly.
Incomplete digestion of proteins or mal-absorption of nutrients necessary for complete digestion of proteins indicates a digestive or intestinal problem. Toxic liver and an overloaded lymphatic system can also trigger kidney stones as this over works the kidneys.
Subluxation of the mid thoracic vertebra with reduction of nerve flow to the kidneys reducing correct kidney function can also lead to kidney stones. Even taking too much calcium, in the form of calcium carbonate, can lead to kidney stones.
A common cause lately has been the switch to a ketogenic diet, which is normally a good thing, but when the person’s kidneys and liver are already overloaded and toxic, can lead to kidney stones, turning them away from this good diet.
So there are many causes to this symptom and a good clinician will find the individual cause or causes for that person.
