Is there anything that can help get rid of kidney stones naturally? These small little “stones” build up in the kidneys and cause a great amount of pain. There are two different types of kidney stones but we have seen this simple suggestion work on everyone who has ever tried it–without fail–thus far. You do NOT need drugs, surgery, or ultrasound treatments.
You simply take 10 Alfalfa every hour for a day or two. Usually within 24 hours or less, the kidney stones have dissolved enough to pass on into the bladder or even just disappear. We suggest continuing the 10 Alfalfa per hour for a day after all the pain has passed just to make sure the stones have completely disappeared.
Some say Kidney Stones are caused by a build up of calcium. This is absolutely false. Calcium stones–and hypercalcemia in general–are a result of calcium deficiency, poor absortption of calcium due to coincident nutritional deficiencies (like Vitamins K or D), or an acidic body chemistry that prevents proper calcium utilization.
In response to an article about calcium being the source of Kidney Stones, a good friend and nutritionist wrote:
Regarding the rather silly article on calcium being the “secret killer” — yes, calcium and other macrominerals accumulate on the sticky oxidized clumps of cholesterol to form the plaques that block arteries. But to blame it on calcium — which is absolutely essential for the health and life of every cell of the body, and especially the brain and central nervous system — is utterly ridiculous and preys on people who don’t know enough about nutrition and how the body works to know better.
The root cause of artery blockage is homocysteine, a byproduct of normal metabolism. This is how it works:
Cholesterol is absolutely essential to the life and energy productions of every cell of the body and is the foundation of some of the most important hormones in the body, both the reproductive hormones and the hormones that control brain chemistry. Your liver produces most of the cholesterol in your body, and normally it is present in the blood stream and flowing smoothly.
When a person’s diet is deficient in antioxidants — especially those anitoxidants that are particularly effective in neutralizing homocysteine, like vitamins C, E, coenzyme Q-10, and resveratrol — homocysteine in the blood comes in contact with the cholesterol and oxidizes it. When the cholesterol oxidizes, it curdles up into sticky clumps — something like what would happen if you put lemon juice into your milk.
[The so-called “bad” cholesterol, the low density or LDL cholesterol, is not really “bad.” It is only called “bad” because it oxidizes more easily that the higher density, or HDL, part of the cholesterol.]
These sticky clumps of oxidized cholesterol stick to the sides of the blood vessel walls. Then the calcium and other macrominerals in your blood stick to it and form plaques that build up and block the flow of blood (and its oxygen and nutrients). If the blood flow and oxygen are blocked long enough in an artery feeding the heart muscle, your heart muscle goes to sleep — just like your hand goes to sleep if you lay on it long enough and cut of the circulation to it.
When your hand goes to sleep, you can’t move it until you get the blood and oxygen flowing again. When your heart muscle goes to sleep, it stops moving in the same way for the same reasons — it’s just that when your heart muscle stops moving it then cuts off blood and oxygen to the whole rest of the body, including the brain, and you keel over and die.
The blame does not rest with the cholesterol — so getting your cholesterol down is irrelevant. Just as many people die of sudden heart attack who do NOT have elevated cholesterol as those who do.
The blame does not rest with the calcium and minerals that stick to the oxidized cholesterol.
The blame lies with the homocysteine and a diet that is deficient in the very basic antioxidants that should be present and taking care of the homecysteine on a routine basis. Many studies have shown that a diet adequate in antioxidants lowers the risk of heart attack to virtually zero.
In addition to the basic antioxidants I’ve mentioned above, the Creator has put into nature in the foods HE has provided (not generally present in the fake foods that man has invented in a food laboratory) literally hundreds of antioxidants that can do the job. That’s why just about every week there is a new study that comes out saying “blueberries good for the heart,” “grape juice good for the heart,” “green tea good for the heart,” “such and such an exotic fruit juice good for the heart,” etc. etc.
So using some “oral chelation” product to remove the calcium/cholesterol plaques from the arteries might be helpful in the short-term, but it does nothing to address the core root issue of cholesterol oxidation due to antioxidant deficiency. If you are getting adequate levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, coenzyme Q-10, and the myriad of other rich antioxidants the Creator has supplied, you won’t have a need for “oral chelation.”
