What are kidney stones?
Kidney stones (also known as Nephrolithiasis or Renal calculus) are small hard masses made up of crystals which are seen in urinary tract (Kidney, urethra and ureter). These crystals are formed by minerals and acid salts. Usually stones forms when the urine becomes concentrated as minerals get crystallized and stick together.
Kidney stone is one of the most painful condition. Kidney stones typically leave the body by passage in the urine stream, and many stones are formed and passed without causing symptoms. If stones grow to sufficient size (usually at least 3 millimeters (0.12 in)) they can cause obstruction of the ureter.
 National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Disease reports that about 1 million people in the United States are treated for kidney stones each year.

Types of kidney stones

Calcium
Calcium stones are the most common. They can be made of calcium oxalate (most common), phosphate, or maleate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in food. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate levels. Your liver also produces oxalate.Vitamin C and spinach contain oxalate. Calcium-based kidney stones are most commonly seen in young men between the ages of 20 and 30.
Cystine
Cystine stones are rare. They occur in both men and women who have the genetic disorder cystinuria.
Struvite
This type of stone is found mostly in women with urinary tract infection. These stones can be quite large and cause urinary obstruction.
Uric Acid
This type of kidney stone is more common in men than in women. They can occur in people with gout or those going through chemotherapy.
Other
Medications like triamterene and acyclovir also can cause stones.


What are the causes for kidney stones?


There are many factors which can lead to form stones in your kidneys. Certain foods may promote stone formation in people who are susceptible.
People who do not drink enough fluids may also be at higher risk, as their urine is more concentrated.

Risk factors
·         Family history: If someone in your family has kidney stones, you're more likely to develop stones, too.
·         Dehydration: Not drinking enough water each day can increase your risk of kidney stones. People who live in warm climates and those who sweat a lot may be at higher risk than others..
·         High-protein, salt, or glucose diet: A high-salt diet is another risk factor, as an increased amount of sodium passing into the urine can also pull calcium along with it. The net result is an increased calcium level in the urine, which increases the probability for stones. Intake of oxalate-rich foods such as leafy green vegetables, nuts, tea or chocolate may also worsen the situation.
·         Obesity
·         Inflammatory bowel diseases (which can cause increase calcium absorption)
·         Other medical conditions. Diseases and conditions that may increase your risk of kidney stones include renal tubular acidosis, cystinuria, hyperparathyroidism, certain medications and some urinary tract infections.
What are the symptoms?

Kidney stones typically leave the body by passage in the urine stream, and many stones are formed and passed without causing symptoms.
Some stones may be washed out of the kidney by urine flow and end up trapped within the ureter or pass completely out of the urinary tract. Stones usually begin causing symptoms when they block the outflow of the urine from the kidney leading to the bladder. At this point these signs and symptoms may be seen,
·         Severe pain in the side and back, below the ribs
·         Pain that comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity
·         Pain on urination
·         Pain that spreads to the lower abdomen and groin
·         Pink, red or brown urine
·         Nausea and vomiting
·         Persistent urge to urinate
·         Fever and chills if an infection is present
·         Cloudy or foul-smelling urine
·         Urinating more often than usual

Investigations

If your doctor suspects kidney stones in you he may ask you to perform,
·         Blood test: for calcium, phosphorus, uric acid and electrolytes
·         Urine analysis: to check for crystals, bacteria, blood, and white cells.
·         Analysis of passed stones: to determine type
·         Abdominal X-rays
·         Intravenous pyelogram (IVP)
·         Retrograde pyelogram
·         Ultrasound of the kidney
·         MRI of the abdomen and kidneys
·         Abdominal CT scan

Treatment for kidney stone

Treatment of kidney stones varies according to size, number and locations. Small kidney stones (less than 5 mm (0.20 in) in diameter) may pass through urine without any pain or other symptoms. Homeopathy has got wonderful results in treating kidney stones which will be explained in detail later.
Initially NSAIDs are given to reduce the pain and wait for spontaneous expulsion.
During this time the patient is advised to drink plenty of water and liquids. A glass of orange juice in a day can help to prevent kidney stone in susceptible subjects.

Surgical procedures:

Lithotripsy: Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy uses sound waves to break up large stones so they can more easily pass down the ureters into your bladder. This procedure can be uncomfortable and may require light anesthesia
Tunnel Surgery (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy) :Stones are removed through a small incision in your back
Ureteroscopy: When a stone is stuck in the ureter or bladder, your doctor may use an instrument called a ureteroscope to remove it

HOMEOPATHY FOR KIDNEY STONES

Homeopathy treatment is one of the best choices of treatment in kidney stones. Homeopathic medicines can help you to expel your kidney stones naturally.
