61. Kidney Stones
Davis et al (1970) have recorded that some 350mg of calcium gets out of the body daily through urination alone.
In reality, abundant calcium and creatinine (also alkaline) accumulate within the body of all those people who habitually under-urinate all the time.
The excessive calcium in the under-urinating people tend to combine with vitamin-D, if they happen to be working under the direct sun in the tropical climate, and form several cysts in the kidney as well. The latter is called cystic kidney.
The kidney stone is also known as renal calculi. This is composed of urates, oxalates, phosphates and carbonates (Thomas, 1985).
Most of the oxalates come from the green leafy vegetables. They can be removed to a substantial extent by adding garlic, while cooking. Even tamarind being an acid substance, can remove oxalate crystals from vegetables.
The lactose present in milk helps in the absorption of calcium (Flatz and Rotthauwe, 1973). Therefore, avoidance of milk would also help in the prevention of kidney stone formation.
Drinking on a regular basis some distilled or rain water would dissolve away the kidney stones as well.
Acid fruits are of great help in clearing these stones. Malaysian fruits such as rambutan, durian, duku langsat, jack fruit, mango, pineapple, papaya, etc. should be considered very good for this purpose.
Adequate water consumption and liberal urination are of absolute necessity for the prevention of renal calculi.
