What are Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are small, hard rocks which are made within the kidneys.

What are the symptoms of Kidney Stones?

Sometimes kidney stones cause no symptoms. Other times, they cause blood in the urine and/or severe pain in the side or back. When kidney stones are large or there is more than one, they may block the flow of urine.

Types of Kidney stones

There are mainly 4 types of Kidney stones

1. Calcium Stones

People who form this type of stone either have too much of one type of three chemicals in their urine, or not enough of another. In particular, they have either too much calcium, oxalate, or urate in their urine, or too little citrate. Eating too much salt may cause too much calcium to stay in the urine A few patients will have kidney stones from overproduction of the calcium controlling hormone, parathormone. There is a common myth that drinking milk can cause kidney stones which is wrong. Drinking milk does not cause kidney stones.

Drinking too less water is the real cause of kidney stones.

2. Struvite Stones

Chronic infection of the urine generally causes these stones. The bacteria responsible for the infection cause a chemical alteration of urine which leads to this type of stone. These stones are harder than the ordinary stones and difficult to break. Herbal Remedies like Varunadi vati are effective to break such kidney stones.

3. Uric Acid Stones

This type of stone forms when the urine is too acidic, which causes excessive uric acid production. Avoid high protein diet, consume a lot of water everyday.

4. Cystine Stones

These stones form because of an inherited condition in which the body cannot clear a chemical called cystine from the blood. Usually, other family members have the same condition.

How do Kidney Stones leave the body?

In many cases, a person will pass the stone via the urine. This may be a painful process, and may take a couple of days. Generally, the physician asks the person with kidney stones diagnosed by x-ray or ultrasound to strain the urine and save the stone so that it can be analyzed.

When a person cannot pass the stone through the urine, there are treatments available to remove or crush them, including:

Inserting a small instrument through the urethra (the tube through which a person passes urine from the body) to "snare" the stone and remove it

Shock wave lithotripsy, whereby the stone is crushed. Once the stone is crushed, a person can pass the smaller pieces.

Surgery – This is another option to remove bigger stones which are impossible to treat by any other method.

How can you prevent kidney stones?

Drink more liquids: Drinking 8-10 glasses of liquid each day helps to keep the urine dilute – which reduces the concentration of stone forming minerals in the urine At least half of the liquid should be water; the other liquids could be any beverages you like.

Reduce the amount of salt you eat

Reducing the salt (sodium) in the diet helps to reduce the amount of calcium in the urine which in turn reduces the tendency for calcium stone formation. Dietary salt reduction is best accomplished by not adding salt to your food and by avoiding those high sodium foods such as processed meats, salty convenience foods (regular, boxed or canned soups, noodle or rice mixes) and salty snacks.

Be sure your diet contains adequate amounts of calcium

Several years ago it was believed that dietary calcium should be restricted in patients with calcium kidney stones. At least two scientific studies now show that the inclusion of at least two servings of high calcium foods per day in the diet actually reduces the rate at which calcium-containing kidney stones form.


The following foods should be avoided: chocolate, anchovies, rhubarb, caviar, greens, herring, berries, scallops, peanuts, mussels, asparagus, organ meats (liver, kidneys, brains), tea, meat, extracts, broth, bouillon, consomme.

Medications: These should only be prescribed by your physician after the cause for your kidney stones is determined.

Hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic which is very effective in reducing calcium in the urine and preventing kidney stones.

Sodium bicarbonate, taken orally makes the urine less acidic and more alkaline. In turn, this decreases the amount of uric acid and cystine in the urine.

Penicillamine and/or captopril: These two drugs have been found useful in reducing the excretion of cystine in patients who have this as the cause for their kidney stones.

Antibiotics: In those patients who have struvite (infection) stones, preventing or controlling urinary infection is mandatory to prevent the recurrence of stones.

Allopurinol: Reduces the amount of uric acid excretion.

Increase Platelets Naturally - Natural Treatment of Low Platelet Count

Natural Treatment for Low Platelet Count - Ayurvedic Treatment for Low Platelet Count - Ayurvedic Treatment for Thrombocytopenia

Usually the reason for low platelet count is bone marrow depression or faulty bone marrow function.

There are the following major reasons for low platelet counts -

  1. Faulty production/ low production from bone marrow. The other cells like RBC's or WBC's may also be low in many cases. Bone marrow depression is caused by so many reasons like drugs, drug reactions, alcohol, cancers etc.
  2. Body conditions where the platelet destruction is more than the production rate in the bone marrow.
  3. Spleen Problems can also be the reason for low platelets.
  4. Other systemic illnesses like Leukemias, AIDS, lymphomas and different types of cancers can also be the reasons for low platelet count.


Platelets, or thrombocytes (from Greek θρόμβος, "clot" and κύτος, "cell"), are small, irregularly shaped clear cell fragments (i.e. cells that do not have a nucleus containing DNA), 2–3 µm in diameter. The average lifespan of a platelet is normally just 5 to 9 days. Platelets are a natural source of growth factors. They circulate in the blood of mammals and are involved in hemostasis, leading to the formation of blood clots.

If the number of platelets is too low, excessive bleeding can occur. However, if the number of platelets is too high, blood clots can form (thrombosis), which may obstruct blood vessels and result in such events as a stroke, myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism or the blockage of blood vessels to other parts of the body, such as the extremities of the arms or legs. An abnormality or disease of the platelets is called a thrombocytopathy, which could be either a low number of platelets (thrombocytopenia), a decrease in function of platelets (thrombasthenia), or an increase in the number of platelets (thrombocytosis).

There are disorders that reduce the number of platelets, such as heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) or thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) that typically cause thromboses, or clots, instead of bleeding.


Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is the condition of having an abnormally low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) of no known cause (idiopathic). As most incidents of ITP appear to be related to the production of antibodies against platelets, immune thrombocytopenic purpura or immune thrombocytopenia are terms also used to describe this condition. Often ITP is asymptomatic (devoid of obvious symptoms), however a very low platelet count can lead to visible symptoms, such as purpura (large bruises), or more seriously, bleeding diathesis.


Ayurveda known as "Science of Life" and "Knowledge of Life" and practiced in India as traditional health care system recognized by WHO. The ayurvedic treatment of low platelet count consists of using some natural remedies, ayurvedic medicines helpful to increase low platelet count. The remedies are particularly effective in ayurvedic treatment of Idiopathic Thromobocytopenia purpura - ITP i.e. Low platelet count due to reasons mostly unknown.
