Almost all people, who experience kidney stones, claim that it is the worst pain that have ever experienced.
Once you get kidney stones, the chances of them returning after treatment are pretty big. Therefore, prevention is always the best cure.
The key advice from doctors is to drink at least 2 liters of fluids during the day. Huge amount of fluids, especially water and unsweetened teas, reduce the chances of kidney stones occurrence by 50%.
The reason why water is so effective is because it is cleansing the entire body, and parts of the stones can be removed easily without being collected as sludge.
Doctors also recommend people with kidney stones to consume a smaller amount of red meat and foods high in oxalate. Oxalate is a substance found in nuts, rutabaga, chocolate and green leafy vegetables. Consumption of tea and coffee is allowed in moderation.
Finally, it is advisable to reduce consumption of carbonated drinks that contain phosphoric acid which helps in the formation of kidney stones. Plus, these drinks can cause dehydration.
