Kidney stone juice

  • Our kidneys are one of the most crucial organs of all. They act as a filtration system, getting rid of waste products. To keep our kidneys working well, it is important to adopt the right diet.
  • Kidney stones are hard masses that form from crystals in the urine. According to the National Kidney Association: ” Each year, more than half a million people go to emergency rooms for kidney stone problems. It is thought that one in ten people will have a kidney stone at some time in their lives”.
  • To avoid kidney stones from forming, drinking a lot of fluids such as filtered water is highly recommended.
  • In general:
  • 1. Avoid foods high in oxalate: Peanuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, soybeans, soy milk, wheat germ and wheat bran, spinach, black tea, instant tea, rhubarb, beets, most dried beans, sweet potatoes and chocolate.
  • 2. Reduce animal protein foods.
  • 3. If you have kidney stones your doctor will recommend for you to cut down on salt and sodium you take. Limit the amount of salt (sodium), calcium, oxalate and protein in your diet. Your health practitioner will probably advise you to limit sodium to 2,000 milligrams each day.
  • 4. You also need to learn how to read the labels and avoid foods high in calcium. It is important that you learn from your health practitioner the right balance of calcium to eat.
  • Tip: Drink a glass of water before bed and if you wake during the night, drink another glass before going back to bed.
  • Try this juice to help you with kidney stones:
  • Lemon is high in citric acid, which is believed to help break-up calcium-based kidney stones.
  • Watermelon is one of the best fruit for kidney stones. It has the highest level of water among all types of fruits. Water is crucial when it comes to passing kidney stones. It is also high in potassium, which is a form of salt that helps dissolve the kidney stones. Watermelon is a diuretic and increases urine formation.
    In addition to drinking as many glasses of water as you possibly can, drink 1 or 2 juices each day.
  • Juices contain citrates which will aid in the breakup of the stones.
  • Juice:
  • 1 orange, peeled
  • 1 apple
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 slices of watermelon
  • 4 ice cubes
  • All ingredients must be organic.
  • For foods for kidney health.

  4. Does this work for existing stones that you are trying to pass. I am scheduled for surgery on Friday for a stone stuck in the uterer.

  5. Are you using a juicer? Can I just mix these up in a Vitamix, as well?

  6. This sounds yummy, would this be good to drink to help prevent kidney stones?

  7. You say in your lead up to the recipe that lemon helps break up calcium-based kidney stones, but in the recipe lemon is not mentioned, but orange. I’m confused!
