does kidney flush really work? personal experience anyone? Ayurvedic?

I’m young and thin, and have a good diet, drink lots of water, but I found out I have multiple kidney stones in both kidneys (and unexplained severe insomnia), do kidney stone flushes really work?

Have you seen results? I will have to use them long term for life.

I will be having shock waves in a few weeks if I can get appt.

In the future, I need herbs to stop formation of them before they turn to stones. So far diet change (I’ve eliminated so many things, I figured this would work), water, …is not working and I need extra help.

Are there any ayurvedic herbs or supplements that can help?

The urologist says I should not be getting them and thinks it is probably 3 different types forming.

I stopped low dose B-vitamins (50% RDA), and the extra B-2 (for migraines, worked great though!), and Phosphadyl serine (PS) supplements last month in case they worsened it? Could PS do that?

I am a student, so money is tight. in herbs a month is not possible.
Kelle- You are acting like I am overdosing or something and taking a bunch of things, and I barely took any, now I take none.

I asked for herbs and flushes to help bc I believe nature has an answer. But I wanted peoples experience who have this problem, not someone who is anti. Obviously I have been following guidelines and advice, and it is not working. I would like something natural in hopes it helps me, and I can avoid more stones and avoid lifelong Rx drugs that have side effects. I had crystals as long ago as 4 yrs ago. Have you ever had a stone?

I have to follow a strict diet and they told me to take a vitamin complex. They are low dose so I didnt get stomach problems and to help my body. I already went off them.

PS was added for memory and concentration bc I have always had problems with that area since I was 3. I am a student and hoped it would help my brain, like fish does. It did not say it could cause stones. But I went off that as well just in case it did.

    Before you can take ‘evasive action’ you need to know the composition of your stones.
    The most common types of kidney stones are made from calcium and oxalate. Individual treatment for kidney stones depends on the types of kidney stones that are formed.
    If you have had a calcium stone, your doctor may ask you to cut back on the salt and sodium in your diet. Extra sodium causes you to lose more calcium in your urine, putting you at risk for developing another stone. Your doctor will probably advise you to limit your sodium to 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams a day.
    You may not need to avoid excessive (too much) calcium in your diet. It is important that you learn from your doctor and dietitian the right balance of calcium you should eat. Following a diet low in calcium for a long period of time can lead to a loss of bone mass, or osteoporosis.

    If you have had a kidney stone that contains oxalate, some evidence (research) suggests that limiting high oxalate foods may help reduce your chance of forming another oxalate stone. Foods that are high in oxalate include: peanuts, tea, instant coffee (more than 8 ounces a day), rhubarb, beets, beans, beets, berries (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, gooseberries, etc. ), chocolate, Concord grapes, dark leafy greens, oranges, tofu, sweet potatoes and draft beer. Because the stone contains calcium and oxalate, you may also need to follow the calcium recommendations from the last question.

    To lessen your risk of forming a new stone, it is important that you drink at least three to four quarts of fluid throughout the day. In hotter weather, you may need to drink more to make up for fluid loss from sweating. This will help keep your urine less concentrated Less concentrated urine reduces the risk of stone formation. Most of the fluid you drink should be water.

    Reducing the amount of animal protein may help. Sources of animal protein include beef, chicken, pork, fish and eggs. Most people need only four to six ounces of high protein foods and three servings of milk or cheese a day. Check with your doctor or dietitian to be sure your protein intake is enough, but not too much.

    Uric acid stones often form when there is a high amount of acid in your urine. Uric acid stones may be caused by eating a high protein diet that includes lots of meat.

    Cystine stones are the rarest form of kidney stone. They are caused by an inherited condition called cystinuria which affects the amount of acid that is passed in your urine.

    So forget the $90 dollars you can ill afford for herbs. Wait until you know exactly what composition stones you have.
    The B vitamins (which include thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B6 and B12) have not been shown to be harmful to people with kidney stones. However, check with your doctor or dietitian for advice on the use of vitamin C, vitamin D, fish liver oils or mineral supplements containing calcium since some supplements can increase the chances of stone formation in some people.

    Those herbs and supplements you have been taking have caused the stones. Too much sediment / minerals , acid salts.

    Now we want to try kidney flush? It is a scam and removes good intestinal bacteria that is needed.

    You are young and thin. Forget all these things and get back to healthy eating. Everything you need is found in a balanced diet.

    kidney flush has no effect on intestinal bacteria
    it is not easy to do but this works:
    drink 72 oz (ouch!) coca cola classic
    follow that with a can of asparagus, plain no sauces, and drink the juice.
    this radically changes the pH of the urinary tract. if the stones are calcium it dissolves them.
    inadequate intake of calcium is often the cause of kidney stones. one of the many jobs of the kidney is to conserve calcium. if you do not get enough the kidneys will hold rather than excrete.
