Understanding Kidney Stones

Kidney stones, also known as renal calculi, are hard deposits that form in the kidneys. They can vary in size and shape and may cause severe pain if they block the flow of urine. Our team of naturopathic doctors specializes in addressing the underlying causes of kidney stones and providing natural remedies to support your overall kidney health.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Common symptoms of kidney stones may include intense pain in the back or side, blood in urine, frequent urination, and a persistent urge to urinate. To accurately diagnose kidney stones, our naturopathic doctors will conduct a thorough evaluation, which may include a physical examination, review of medical history, and imaging tests such as an ultrasound or CT scan.

They will develop a customized diet plan that promotes kidney health and reduces the risk of stone recurrence. This may involve limiting certain foods high in oxalate, sodium, or animal protein.

3. Herbal Supplements
