  • To avoid kidney stones from forming, it is recommended to drink a lot of fluids, such as filtered water.
  • Avoid foods high in oxalate, like peanuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, soybeans, soy milk, wheat germ & wheat bran, spinach, black tea, instant tea, rhubarb, beets, most dried beans, sweet potatoes, and chocolate.
  • Reduce consumption of animal protein foods.
  • Cut down on salt and sodium. Limit the amount of salt (sodium), calcium, oxalate, protein, and potassium in your diet.
  • Learn how to read the labels and avoid foods high in calcium. It is important that you learn from your health practitioner the right balance of calcium to eat.
  • Drink a glass of water before bed. If you happen to wake up during the night, drink another glass before going back to bed
  • Lemon is high in citric acid, which is believed to help break-up calcium-based kidney stones. Have a couple glasses of lemon juice a day
  • Watermelon is one of the best fruits for kidney stones. It has the highest level of water among all types of fruits. It is also high in potassium, which is a form of salt that helps dissolve the kidney stones. Watermelon also increases urine formation.
  • Drink as many glasses of water you possibly can along with at least 1 or 2 juices each day. Juices contain citrates which will aid in the breakup of the stones.
  • Make a juice of following ingredients: 1 orange (peeled), 1 apple, 1 lemon, 4 slices of watermelon, and 4 ice cubes. All ingredients must be organic.
