Some hints to control kidney stones or stones related to urinary tract.

This is one of the comman complaint what most of the people face in present days.There are many causes for this problem of stones.There are various varities of stones.They may be uric acid crystals,calcium oxalate crystals,Cystine stones and many more varities of stones.The problem of urinary calculi is more comman in males than in females.The ratio is 3:1.

The urinary stones are of different sizes and shapes.They may be samll as sand or large as a marble.They may have smooth surface or a cutting edge and rough.The small stones of the size of about-4-5 cmm pass of easily and requires no medication.They may even remain unidentified of a long time.But those larger and with irregular surface often causses pain when they dislocate from its position ,and when thrown out of the body.

Causes and measures for thier prevention:
-First and most comman cause is reduced intake of water.Most of us do not take enough amount of water.An healthy indivisual should consume atleast 2-3 litres of water in a day.So this should be the first step to be taken to avoid the reccurance and even as a prevention for urinary stones.One who are already facing the problem i advice them to increase the volume of water intake to atleast 2-3 times from before.

-IF one with holds the urge of urination and retains it in the bladder for long time in due course it will result in the formation of Calculi[stone].This may be due to work or circumstances.This is a bad habbit and causes various other problems like pain in the lower abdomen,infections of urinary tract,headache etc.Hence never try to with hold the urge of micturation for too long.


Next consuming execcive salt and mineral rich diet.Lemme tell you excess of anything is always harmful.So reduce intake of such food articles.Take a balanced diet.

Execive intake of green leafy vegetables which are rich sources of calcium and many otherminerals and salt is not advisable,Cabbage must be avoided as much as possible.Even cucumber should not be taken too much.Once in 10-15 days is ok.


Ask pateint to take excessive fluids in his diet,barley water is a very good medicine.

-Following a sedentary life style is also a cause for the urinary calculi

-The risk increases in those who comsume lots of legumes and pulses and also those who take it very often.


The juice extracted from the stem of banana plant is the best medicine.It crushed the stones and removes it out from the tract and eliminates it out from the body.The reason is its rich in fibers and has got a medicinal property to crush the stones.
The stem of banana plant taken in any form is very helpful in this case..Even the juice from the roots of banana plant is beneficial
- consuming banana daily also acts as a preventive measure.

-Even the atmospheric conditiond contribute to the formation of stones.Eg- living in tropical regions,i.e-where the temperature is very high there the concentration of uric acid increases and exessive sweat leads to reduction of water levels in the body.If the person does'nt take enough water it will leads to stones formation in the urinary tract.

-People working in mines are much prone to such problems.

-People working in office with AC will naturally tend to sweat less and inturn lead to reduced intake of water which also leads to this problem again.

-Exessive intake of spicy food and sodium rich food is also a cause for this

- intake of execess of salt in the diet is also harmful.

-Avoid execcive intake of non vegetarian food ,spicy food and sour tastes in food.
-There is an execellent medicine in ayurveda for this problem.

This is such a great resource.....please keep posting more articles, especially some ayurvedic remedies for Migraines..that would be so helpful!

Dr. Soumya Bhat said…
Hey pooja,
Thanks Dear.The stone up to 4-5 mm is considered as small once and do not need any extra medications generally.Usuallt they pass off by themself.Well for this to pass of at the quick rate i suggest to drink atleast 3 litres of water per day,[that is plain boiled and cooled water]Then barley water may be added to the diet list.There are some ayurvedic medicines Which help a lot here .The sizes like this pass of without causing any pain when displaced.Lemme tell the names-
1.Chandra prabha vati- 3 times a day with warm water[tablet]
2.Ushirasava[#tsp trice]
I will ask patient to take this for a month.This iwill help to remove the stones as well prevent the reccurance.

;;;-Try out 15 ml of banana stem juice for continous 1 week every morniing empty stomack.This gives an execelent result.I have tried it in many patients.

bbachoo said…
Hi there! I was reading over your posting and saw that you recommended Ushirasava. I thought that was for blood disorders related to a Pitta imbalance? Could you explain how kidney stones would benefit? I thought Vata was the predominant dosha out of balance despite being located in the vessel of Kapha. Thanks so much!

Hi Soumya
this is really commendable on your part to help people like this.
I read your remedies for kidney stones and their recurrence. I'll surely try them out. But can you please tell me how and where to get the banana stem juice? I hardly have any idea.
Samba said…
Hi Soumya,

Thanks a lot for writing such nice article with out bombarding it with too much medical terminology.

I read some where that eating the white layer under the banana skin helps reducing the pain...

Is that true?

I have another doubt; since Banana is rich in Calcium , how will it help in mitigating the problem?

Can you please clarify?
Anonymous said…
hi Soumya, really good info you are putting across. My husband discovered two stones we were worried..but now am seeing its common cause. I gave him banana stem have mentioned juice to be't just banana stem grinded in mixer and extracted or how to make the juice..Thanks mallika
Ranjith said…
Hello doctor,
I had a lithotripsy done 2 years back to remove 9 mm stone. Again after 2 years detected a stone of size 10 mm in the kidney. I am surprised that in 2 years stone re-appeared even after controlling my diets etc.
Can it be cured through medicine? am not looking for a surgery again.What ayurvedic medicines are available?

Dear Doctor,

Great site , happened to pass by . I suffer from kidney stones and have tried natural remedies with some success . Are there any specific excercises that can help the fast excretion of these stones without damage . Does Rasayan Chrna( Gokru, Ghalo and Amla ) help ?

A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming. These inhibitors do not seem to work for everyone,

HI Doctor,

My husband went for an routine health check up and came to know that he has 4mm stone in the kidney, doctors said that it will wash out with intake of more water and following some diet control.

I wld like to know whether 4mm stone can cause any pain?

can u pls suggest what medicine he can take to dissolve or to flush out the stone? As of now Doctor asked to take cystone. Will this be sufficient?

Awaiting for ur reply. my email id

My mom is having kidney stone problem.
In your article you have mentioned to avoid calcium rich food which causes stone but my mom is having less calcium and Dr suggested to take calcium tablets for the same so my doubt is whether to take those tablets or not is that troubling her?
