I have been on a strict candida diet and taking the usual supplements
Today they discovered a kidney stone
that has dropeed form the kidney and is now in my blader and I should pass it out anytime. WHat has caused the kidney stone? Is it a cleansing part of the diet, is it the diet itself?
From looking online on homeopathic treatment and prevention it seems that I am doing everything right altough I am not taking the recomended suplements. Thoughts?
The following nutritional recommendations may help to prevent stone formation or recurrence:
* Eat a whole foods diet that contains leafy green vegetables, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fish and poultry in small portions. Include foods that have a high ratio of magnesium to calcium such as brown rice, bananas, oats, barley, and soy, and that are high in fiber such as oat bran, psyllium seed husk, and flaxseed meal.
* Drink a minimum of 50% of body weight in ounces
of water daily (e.g., a 150 lb person would drink 75 oz
of water). Proper hydration helps prevent the urine from becoming concentrated with crystals, which can lead to stone formation; and reduces the risk for urinary tract infections, which may lessen the risk for struvite stones. Urine color can indicate the level of concentration: dark or bright yellow urine indicates highly concentrated urine; pale or colorless urine indicates dilute urine.
* Avoid Sugar
(check ingredients for hidden sources of sugar), alcohol, antacids, excessive protein, dairy products (especially milk), salt, carbonated beverages, caffeine, and refined white flour products such as pasta, white bread, and baked goods.
* Magnesium citrate–Take 500 mg daily. Low magnesium intake has been linked to stone formation. Magnesium supplementation may decrease the size of an existing stone and prevent further formations. Citrate supplementation may prevent further stone formation.
* Vitamin B-6–Take 25 mg daily. A B-6 deficiency increases urinary oxalate, which may lead to kidney stones.
