Homeopathy Medicine for Kidney Stone
As small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball, kidney stones can develop from solidified crystals in the kidney or urinary tract when there is an imbalance in any of the ingredients.
Men are more likely to experience kidney stones than women, making them one of the most painful urologic conditions.

CAUSES OF KIDNEY STONE
When we consume more calcium, calcium oxalate, uric acid, or salt in our diets with insufficient fluid intake, kidney stone formation is enhanced. A positive family history (genetic tendency) also makes a person susceptible to kidney stone formation.
Spinach, rhubarb, chocolate, peanuts, cocoa, beets, coffee, cola, nuts, strawberries, tomato juice, grapefruit juice, apple juice, soda (acidic and contains phosphorus), all types of tea, and berries are just a few examples of foods that raise the risk of kidney stone formation in susceptible people.
SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY STONE
The patient typically presents with the most excruciating pain in the lower back just below the ribs, which frequently extends into the groin area. The patient may also experience nausea, vomiting, blood in the urine (haematuria), restlessness, and fever (if an infection is present). Kidney stones can remain asymptomatic until they obstruct the flow of urine, at which point the patient starts experiencing acute symptoms.
The majority of stones larger than 6 mm need to be removed surgically, especially if they are stuck and obstructing the urinary tract persistently or infecting it. Stones smaller than 5 mm typically pass out on their own.
