What is Kidney stones?

Kidney stones are one of the most painful disorders that affect humans. Kidney stones are solid masses of mineral salt deposits that are normally filtered through the kidney and emptied via urine. Urine has a natural substance, which dissolves these minerals, thereby preventing them into becoming solids or calculi. Sometimes due to dehydration, these salts don’t get dissolved and crystallization takes place. It grows large enough to obstruct the renal ducts or stuck in the uterus, causing sharp and severe pain in the urinary tract. Untreated, kidney stones can cause renal failure.

Common Causes of Kidney stones
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Overdoses of Vitamin D
  • Mineral imbalance
  • Kidney disease
  • Dehydration
  • Gout
  • Diet

Hello Dr. Gupta.

My father tried all type of medicines to cure kidney stone. No change.

Do you know any natural or ayurvedic medicines (herbs) for curing this disease. I heard a herb called "Scoparia Dulcic" is good for this.
