Homeopathy Tips for 3/31/09 Kidney Stones

      Kidney stones occur in about one in 1,ooo persons. The passing of kidney stones can cause excruciating pain. Homeopathy can be very useful in helping to heal the susceptibility to kidney stones and during the acute pain of passing them.

     Kidney stones are called renal calculi. They are crystallized mineral deposits that develop in the renal pelvis or calyces. Calculi develop when calcium and other minerals, such as uric acid, crystallize in the kidney. These can break off and enter the ureters causing pain (renal colic) during the spasmodic contraction of the ureter.  Sometimes complete blockage of the ureter happens. This is a serious situation and needs prompt attention. If the stones are small enough they can pass unnoticed.  

       Renal colic is  characterized by excruciating, intermittant pain, usually in the area over the kidney in the small of the back and spreads across the abdomen often to the genitals and inner thighs. Other symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, abdominal distention, chills, fever, and blood in the urine. The urge to urinate can become frequent as the stone passes down the ureter.  

        Diagnosis is usually based on the type and location of the pain and the presence of blood in the urine. X-rays can detect calcium stones but a radiopaque dye is needed for  uric acid stones. If the stones are large enough sometimes ultrasound can detect them. Common treatment for acute renal colic is lithotripsy. This is a treatment using sound shock waves to shatter the stone, breaking it apart so that the smaller pieces can be passed without pain. It is relatively safe but requires a hospital procedure. If this does not work often surgery is necessary if there is a complete blockage.

      Always drinking alot of fluids will help increase urine production and help flush stones out.  Diet can help in some instances depending on the composition of the stone.

        Rubrics from the Complete 2005 Repertory that may be useful in coming to a remedy for kidney stones are;

  • Bladder; calculi
  • Urine; sediment; renal calculi
  • Kidneys; pain; calculi, from bladder
  • Urine; sediment; sand, gravel, small calculi
  • Kidneys; pain; left, colic with
  • Kidneys; pain; right, colic with
  • Kidneys; pain; colic
  • Kidneys, pain; colic, pain in extremities with
  • Kidneys; pain; colic, paroxysms between
  • Kidneys; pain; colic, pressing glans amel.
  • Kidneys; pain, colic, vomiting with
  • Back; pain, colic in

     The most useful and indicated remedy for help with the acute pains and passing of the stone is Berberis Vulgaris. This single remedy will work most of the time. It is the very first remedy to think of. It covers the majority of the symptoms of renal calculi.  Common sensations are bubbling pains in the kidneys, severe pain in the kidneys, pains radiating or extending to the testes. Pains may radiate, change locations or emanate from the small of the back. Usually the 30C or 200C potencies will work best in the acute. Repetition as necessary. Other remedies that can be very useful and should not be ignored

  • Lycopodium – especially if the symptoms are right sided. Must strain to urinate. Urine burning hot
  • Sarsaparilla – Also right sided pain.Can pass urine only when standing. Pain in urethra extending to abdomen.
  • Benzoic Acid – Urine strong smelling. Pains suddenly change locality.  Useful in uric acid calculi.
  • Calcarea Carbonica – Urine dark, sour, foul or strong odor. White sediment in urine.
  • Calcarea Renalis – Left sided pain. vomiting with pain. Blood in the urine. Helps dissolve stones since it is from the kidney stone.
  • Lithium Carbonicum – Pain in bladder extending to testes or spermatic cord. Right sided kidney pain.
  • Pareira Brava – Must get on all fours with head pressed to the floor to urinate. Constant urging to urinate with great straining. Pain extending down thighs.
  • Urtica Urens – Blood in the urine. Uric acid calculi. Urine suppressed.
  • Cantharis – Tenesmus. Constant desire to urinate. Burning, scalding cutting pains. Blood in the urine. Urine passes drop by drop.

Study your repertory and materia medica. Kidney stones are a chronic condition that makes itself known in a very acute way. When considering remedies to help reduce the chronic expression of this disease, always include mental symptoms and remember to prescribe to the essence of the case; to the person in their totality. Never forget Berberis in the acute expression; it will help more often than any other remedy.

  9. R. D. Ray on

    Dear Dr
    I agree with this suggestions recommended for renal stones.
    Sarsa parilla and Berberis is most frequently used medicines for such type of colic sysmptoms. Calcatre and Lycopodium can also not to be forgotten. As in Homopathy there is no specific medicine for any diseases and symptoms are only the guiding parameters still I can say first attention to be paid to those medicines suggested by you.
    Thanks for your valuable suggestion.
    Hoping to receive such tips frequently.


    dear Mr. robert
    good morning

    Apart from the above medicines,what i use in my daily practice and found them really effective are combination of THLASPI.B.P -Q,OCIMIM CAN-Q ,SOLIDIGO VIRGA-Q,B.V-Q,SARSAPARILLA-Q,HYDRANGEA-Q,PARIERA B-Q,OXYDENDERON-Q,VESICARIA-Q,COLEUS-Q,URTICA URENS-Q. IT is a very effective combination for expelling calculus even more then 12-14 mm size.IT also control renal colic even far better than pain killers.

    I manage most of my cases with Berb.vul. 30. ocimum can 30,repeated every 15 minutes, as per requirement, in case of severe colic, if this does not help, Parera Brava Q,10 drops in half a cup of water in repeated doses, always alleviates the pain. Nux. Vomica 200, in case of frequent ineffectual painful urge for urination.

    My wife is suffering from acne. I will be grateful if someone could suggest a remedy. Am willing to share specific information. Am residing in a country where this remedy is not available. She is being treated by a doctor in South India for over a year with hardly any improvement at an exhorbitant cost (INR 2,000 for a 3-month course…!) Am aware that homeopathy cures in the most cost-effective manner.

    Hi Shankar,

    I am working on a low cost online repertization program that will allow you to share cases with the community as well as do the case yourself. Please watchyour emails for the announcement. It is not too far off.

    Hi Adnan,

    I’m sorry but even with your honest sharing there is not enough information to prescribe a remedy for. It would be best to contact a homeopath in your area and have them give you a remedy. You will have much better success than me recommending something for you with such limited information. Good luck,
    Robert Field

    Hi Dr Robert,

    My mother, aged 73, has recently been put on dialysis. Doctors say her kidneys are 90% failed and her urea level is 220, creatinine is 12.5. She has stopped eating almost completely and is suffering from constant nausea, frequent vomiting and sudden motions she cannot hold to reach the bathroom 10 feet away.

    She has been on homoeopathy for most of her last 20 years and would prefer a remedy that doesn’t get vomitted out quickly after ingesting.

    Kidney stones can be treated by ultrasound if the stones are not very big. Thus, early detection is very imporant. ;;`.’

    Many thanks http://www.healthmedicinelab.com/ingrown-toenail-treatment/

  39. Shahid Ali Khan on

    Four months ago suddenly it started paining in my stomach and back side. In ultrasound nothing was found but when KUB xray test done their was 1 stone of around 6 mm on the top of kidney. after a month of allopathic treatment it came down in the center of Kidney. ppl suggested me to go with homeopathic treatment for faster result. I switched to homeopathic medicine for 2 months but when again KUB xray was done the position of stone was same. I am very much depressed since I am not able to get rid from this stone. In homeopathic medicine doctor told me to take 20 drops of each said medicine with water thrice a day – B.vula , hydrazene , painform. I am not able to read the name exactly.

    Please suggest me with which homeopathic medicine should I carry on and their daily dosage. I will be very thankful to you.
