Our urinary system is composed of kidneys, urinary bladder, urethra, and ureters.
Kidneys are mainly responsible for purifying our blood and removing waste and excess fluids from the body.
The wastes and fluids left over after kidney filtration is urine. Urine is then passed down from the ureters down the urinary bladder.
All goes well but if the solid mineral deposits collect and form crystals or solid deposits in the kidney or in the bladder, one develops kidney stones. Thus kidney stones are basically hard deposits of minerals and salt.
There are substances that prevent the formation of such solid deposits. The formation of kidney stones signifies the corresponding fall in the production of such substances.
Other reasons include insufficient hydration which causes the concentration of mineral in your urine to increase and raise the probability of developing kidney stones.
Taking homeopathic medicines ensures that the amount of substances required for the effective functioning of kidneys and releasing of waste substances is carried out efficiently.
Homeopathic medicines work by treating the underlying cause to prevent the formation of solid deposits.
Natural homeopathic medicines not only prevent the further development of kidney stones but also dissolve the existing stones.
In many cases, and under homeopathic remedies can even bypass the need for surgical intervention.
But for this to happen, we recommend consulting a homeopathic practitioner as soon as possible.
Homeopathy is very effective to dissolve stones of small sizes. This does not mean that it is not effective for large stones. It is equally effective and has shown cases where even large stones were dissolved after a proper diagnosis and some tests.
But in extreme cases there can be urine retention due to blockage created by kidney stones and the urine cannot pass from the kidney onto the bladder. In this condition, immediate medical help is needed.
Usually, there are two junctions inside the urinary system where the homeopathic medicines work.
These are The pelviureteric junction (PUJ) and the ureterovesical junction (UVJ).
