Symptoms & Causes Of Kidney Stones
Symptoms of kidney stones may include:
- Pain in the lower back and side below the ribcage
- Discolored or foul smelling urine
- Persistent need to urinate, but only getting small amounts out.
- Nausea and vomiting
A kidney stone is formed typically when minerals crystalize near your kidneys and slowly clog your urinary tract, which can be extremely uncomfortable to deal with.* Mild ones may be passed naturally but it could require hospitalization in severe cases.
You may be at risk for kidney stones if you:
- Have a family history of kidney stones
- Are obese
- Take certain types of medication
- Have high levels of calcium in your urine
- Experience dehydration
- Eat foods high in sugar, salt and protein.
At SOPHIA, what we work to do is relieve pain while it is happening and helping you after the stone has passed. Our natural health specialists can give you the tools to live a healthier life, along with your doctor’s recommendations.*
Your Different Treatment Options
Dietary Therapy & Lifestyle Counseling
Kidney stones can be a sign that your diet may need to change. One of the risk factors for kidney stones is obesity. Eating foods high in salt, such as French fries, chicken nuggets and living a sedentary lifestyle can make it more likely you will suffer from another kidney stone.* We will work with you to help you feel healthier throughout the day, with diet and exercise counseling recommended by our specialists.*
We will work with you to give you an alternative to the calcium-filled antacids you may take if you suffer from frequent stomach aches, as hardened calcium is the most common material of kidney stones. Ask your general practitioner if you would like to utilize our herbal supplements in lieu of some medications that may be giving you a greater risk for kidney stones.*
