Kidney Stone Prevention Remedies
Drink Water!

Kidney stones are mineral deposits that form in the kidney.
Approximately 10 percent of people develop kidney stones at some point in their life. 
Stones may be present for years and never produce symptoms, but when they grow too large, they can
block the flow of urine through the ureter and can be very painful. Here are a few home remedies 
that may help to prevent kidney stones from forming. It's always advised to consulting your doctor before any treatment. 

   Kidney Stone Prevention Tips

 Drink! Increasing your fluid intake should be the first step. 
Six to eight glasses a day of water a day should be the minimum.       

 Don't eat large amounts of fruits and vegetables! 
Yes, they do provide lots of vitamins and nutrients; however, they also provide calcium oxalates. 
                       So it's recommended to go easy on these foods if you have a tendency toward kidney stones.                         
A moderate diet of meat products. 
Animal protein can accelerate the formation of uric acid and calcium in the urine which may cause stones. 

Other foods that may cause stones are anchovies, herring, mussels, mackerel, sardines, shrimp, beer, liver, sweetbreads, and wine. 
High-protein diets should be avoided.

 Avoid calcium-based antacids. 
Overuse may contribute to kidney stones.
