Dr. Berg talks about dissolving kidney stones. Most stones are calcium oxalate stones. This is different than gallbladder stones.
You need to consume lower oxalate in your diet.
You also need to increase citrates in the diet. Citrates combine with stones.
1. The best way to do this is with lemon juice and potassium citrate. Magnesium is another good mineral, but take in citrate form
2. Avoid oxalates (see below)
3. Avoid calcium from supplements, but dietary calcium is okay, since it can bind with calcium before it turns into stones. However, there is also mixed reviews on this and some say that taking calcium would be okay.
4. Of course if you have a kidney stone, adding more water will help, however, drinking excessive water in general without electrolytes will not prevent kidney stones. The key is drinking adequate amounts of fluid. Sometimes when I tell people not to drink excessive amounts, they interpret this as to avoid drinking water – no, just drink when you are thirsty and if you have a stone or develop stones easily, drink more.
5. Vitamin D most likely will help prevent kidney stones. This is an excellent read:
6. Vitamin K2 helps keep calcium out of the soft tissues of the body and this is a must.
7. There are mixed reviews on vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid) on if it contributes to stone formation.
8. Too much sodium could contribute to stone formation in some people.
HIGH OXALATE FOODS:
FOOD LOW IN OXALATE
For Uric Acid Stones
This can be triggered from higher amounts of insulin or sugar intake. It can also be triggered from ketosis. Potassium citrate will help this.
