Foods for Kidney Stone Prevention

Apart from water, the inclusion of top 3 food habits in your diet can plays significant role in kidney stone prevention. Such as:

1. Increase in citrus intake: The best sources of naturally occurring citric acid are lemon, oranges, and grapefruits. Citric acid builds a protective shield against the formation of stones in your kidney. It helps in breaking up the potential blocks of stone formation into smaller pieces which get expelled through urination.

2. Include calcium (Vitamin D): Lower your oxalate level by including more calcium into your diet. It is always advisable by the health experts to extract calcium from natural sources rather than from the supplements. Milk, cheese, and yogurt are considered as the prime sources to obtain calcium. Apart from these, dark green vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes are also the rich source of calcium. It is equally essential to increase the intake of vitamin D, as it helps in the absorption of more calcium. The lower is the calcium level in your diet, the more is the increase in oxalate level which is primarily responsible for the stone formation.

3. Watery fruits and vegetables: Though drinking sufficient water and healthy fluids are advisable to prevent stones formation, the consumption of watery fruits and vegetables are prescribed by the physicians to get rid of stones. The inclusion of watery fruits and vegetables like watermelon, raspberries, oranges, cucumber, and pineapple help in keeping the body well hydrated thus reducing the possibility of stone formation in the kidneys and urinary tract.

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is caused when your serum vitamin D level is below 20 nanograms/millimeter (ng/ml). It can also occur when there is an insufficiency of the vitamin in your diet or your body cannot absorb and metabolize the ones you consume.

Furthermore, if you live in a place with a high latitude, you may be at more risk of vitamin D deficiency because you may have less access to the sun’s ultraviolet-B (UVB) rays. Staying too much indoors is also a contributing factor and if you live in a highly-polluted territory, you may have a lesser access to sun’s rays. The use of excessive sunscreen on your skin to block UV rays may also be a contributory factor while those with darker skin types need more exposure.

It is unsafe to self-diagnose a vitamin D deficiency because its symptoms are similar to many other ailments. Hence, it is very important to conduct a laboratory test in order to establish the ailment. However, some symptoms that may be noticed are weak bones, depression, chronic pain, rising blood pressure, exhaustion even with adequate sleep, unexplained infertility, weakness of the muscle, just to mention a few.

Boosting your vitamin D levels is as easy as ABC. You can take over-the-counter supplements or multivatimin preparations, while the consumption of foods like salmon, tuna, cheese, liver, egg yolk, milk, cereals, etc., is advisable. It is very important to expose your skin to sunlight and if you have a history of skin cancer or you have a very pale skin, you should speak with a medical professional to know whether you are fit for sun exposure.

Hydrogen Water Bottle

Quick and efficient: They are very quick and efficient with the ability to turn everyday water into hydrogen water in about 3 to 5 minutes. The healthy water is ready to drink as soon as the infusing cycle is complete.

Long-lasting: once the infusing is complete, the water is able to hold its antioxidant properties for a period of about five or six hours. It has the potential to last longer if stored in a hermetically sealed glass container. In the event of the water losing its hydrogen, it is acceptable to go through the hydrogenation process again. This will not have a negative impact on the water and will not result in saturation.

Keeps you hydrated: this type of water bottle is a great way to stay hydrated while traveling. It is beneficial to drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day. Also, it helps to drink this water on its own and not with food. The hydrogen water is less effective when drunk at a mealtime because of the digestive process.

Easy to maintain: the electrodes in these machines have the potential to last five years or more, which means minimal investment on maintenance. They don’t rely on filters or other components that have a very short lifespan. However, it is important to only use low mineralization water to prolong the usable life of the electrodes.

Chiropractic Care

1. Relieve Stress

If your nerves, skeletal systems and muscular systems are out of line, your body will be out of line. As a result, you will suffer from a lot of physical and mental stress. Once these systems get on the right track, you will feel less tense. In other words, if you want to manage stress, make sure your nervous system and all the other systems are in good working order.

2. Improve Posture

With the passage of time, the chiropractic treatments may help you align the curves and tilting in your spine. As a result, your posture will get better. As a matter of fact, this is more important as far as the curves in your neck are concerned. Unfortunately, some people get neck issues when they are quite young. The reason is that they are hunched over most of the day. With regular treatment sessions, your posture will get better and you will be taller and stronger.

3. Mood Improvement

As soon as you get adjusted, the entire system in your body gets into good shape. So, if you are having some medical imbalances, you may benefit from this health care system. People with depression may fix their moods by getting regular care. As a matter of fact, people with ADHD can also benefit greatly from this health care. With good mood, you will be able to focus on what you are doing.

4. Improved Immune System

When you get adjusted, your chiropractor is removing subluxations that are preventing your nervous system from working properly. Your nervous system is in charge of sending and receiving information, including sending information to and from your immune system. Keeping your nervous system working properly keeps your immune system working properly, meaning your immune system will start working better and you will start recovering from illnesses faster.
