Dealing with Kidney Stones

I have had kidney stone issues since I was 26 and underwent two operations to get them removed. However, they keep coming back and while I am maintaining water intake, some tips from those who have had kidney stones would be great. I want to reduce the pain and get rid of them naturally.

Tip 3 - Stay away from high-protein foods

High protein foods break down into urea which has a major role in the formation of kidney stones. Just watch your meat intake and don't eat a lot of grains either.

Tip 4 - Reduce your Vitamin C consumption

Intake of Vitamin C in your daily diet should be reduced to under 2 grams because unused calcium and a high quantity of it in your blood can promote stone formation in the kidneys.
