Kidney stone
When the kidney cramps

“Often I don’t notice anything,” “Every now and then I have colic,” “This is the worst pain I’ve ever had.”

This, or something similar, is how patients with kidney stones experience their excruciating discomfort.

The renal pelvis collects the urine produced in the kidney and carries it further into the narrower ureter. Kidney stones form when soluble excretory products crystallize in the urine – into many small stones, as in kidney gravel, or one or more large kidney stones.

Sufferers usually first feel problems when the renal pelvis becomes inflamed or kidney stones start to migrate in order to be excreted via the bladder. With the painful spasms, the body tries to move the kidney stone through the narrower ureter.

How does Vedic Medicine view kidney stones?

Kidney stone from an Ayurvedic point of view

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, Kidney stone start with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues and toxins, called “ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which, in the case of kidney stones, change the composition of the urine formed in the kidney. Many patients with stone complaints feel that stress and an unstable nervous system can also act as amplifiers and triggers of the familiar symptoms.

However, according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so every kidney stone disease is different. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.

What can Ayurveda do for you?

In Vedic medicine, kidney stone are addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
