New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with How to Dissolve Kidney Stones (Part 1)?
hey guys dr. Berg here listen in this video I’m going to discuss how to dissolve kidney stones but I want to make a disclaimer first make sure that you’re discussing it this information any changes with your doctor because this is not meant for replacement for any meds or any surgery that they’re going to do any okay so I just wanted to present this as extra information to work with he or she in helping to you know prevent this from coming back or helping slow down stone sometimes it takes several months to dissolve stones and if you can prevent invasive procedure I think it’s worth it to try this you can always go back and get our ultrasound and see if the stones are shrinking but here’s here’s the data most kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones or calcium phosphate stones twenty percent or a little less than twenty percent of the stones are uric acid crystal stones okay so there’s two different there’s several but these are the main two now golf stones are completely different than kidney stones as far as the formation golf stones are more cholesterol stones because of like a bile kidney stones we’re going to talk about the most common are calcium oxalate stones okay so there’s really two things that you need to put your attention on one is removing the oxalates from your diet this is like a waste product for metabolism but ox let’s bind with calcium in the kidney okay and they develop these little crystals that then can create a lot of problems they can get lodged right on the kidney right before the ureter and cause a backup of fluid and pressure and cause a lot of pain that symptoms from kidney stones are very similar to the symptoms from golf stones so sometimes you don’t know what is causing what because they’re very very similar but you can get it alter sound or cat scan to find that out alright so the underlying mechanism is that usually the person is low in citrate and high in oxalates now fit rates actually help prevent the formation of stones and help dissolve stones so the two mechanisms that you want to focus on our increasing citrates in the diet decreasing oxfords alright so let’s go through step one number one you want to increase citrus there are many types of lemon juice that you can consume i like the volcano lemon juice you can even get lemon juice any lemon juice and it will work but i would like to recommend that you get a higher quality lemon juice because it’s a lot more nutritious volcano is the best but you can just get organic lemon juice but lemon juice has a lot of citrus anything any mineral with citrate at the end of it is a citrate so you can do potassium citrate which I like that one way better than sodium citrate but potassium citrate will break off so a good portion of the potassium will go this way is citrate will go that way and it starts to form with the calcium and help break up the stones so that will handle the citrate number two you want to avoid ox lids now I put a link down below of all the different categories of foods and what has high extremely high oxalates and what are very low and you can use that but spinach is the top of the list spinach has hundreds of milligrams of oxalates per ounces of spinach and then we also have avocado is high dates are high grapefruit is high potato wheat beans beets are very high swiss chard is very high key we can pineapple is very high figs in tofu are very high in oxalic okay not unfortunately very high almonds are very very high I’m sorry did you realize that kale is very low in oxalic even though it’s a cruciferous it has like seven teen milligrams per three ounces spinach is hundreds okay cabbage is low in oxalic bok choy is low cauliflowers low cucumber is low so take the list down below dissect it make notes and what you’re going to you know do as far as you’re changing your diet now the point I want to make is this it is true and some of the other videos I talked about calcium coming out of solution into the different soft tissues when your body is too alkaline okay so we have alkalosis calcium participate or precipitates out of the solution and starts clogging up joints and things that’s true but if you take dietary calcium like some cheese and things like that that will not end up in the calcium through the kidneys in fact some of that calcium to the digestive system will bind with the oxalate and lower the chance of getting a stone the thing you need to worry about is taking dietary extra calcium like supplements like calcium in a supplement form especially calcium carbonate you want to avoid that so just make sure you’re not taking these supplements with calcium but you can take some dietary foods that are higher in calcium okay the other point I want to make is there’s a confusion with vitamin D there’s mixed reviews a lot of the recent research that says that vitamin D actually helps lower stones then the older research says it will increase it but here’s my viewpoint vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium in the intestines by 20 times that doesn’t necessarily mean it ends up in the kidney okay so I think it’s okay vitamin k2 is another vitamin that’s very important if you have kidney stones because that helps you hold calcium in the bone that helps you remove calcium from soft tissues and puts it in the bone where it should be so this is a very good anti kidney stone vitamin there’s also mixed reviews and vitamin C or ascorbic acid a synthetic like large amounts of the scorebook acid some studies show that it increases some studies do not so I am I don’t have an opinion about MFE I don’t know exactly what it does some people think that cranberry helps dissolve kidney stones it does not all cranberry will do will help lessen the stickiness of the bacteria on your bladder okay now let’s talk about uric acid crystals now that particular type of stone usually comes when your ph is too acid your urine pH is too acid and that could happen after several things number one you need a ketosis diet Allisyn you uploaded getting stone or you have an insulin problem a lot of diabetics have kidney stones because of the sugar involved because sugar fructose that kind of can lead to uric acid building up in the body so if you have more of the uric acid stones what you want to do is increase the pH and you can do that or alkalis the by a little bit more by take the potassium citrate or even lemon juice because both of these are alkaline even though the lemon juice is a an acid it turns into an alkaline acid in the body so actually these two remedies will be good for both of these the last point I want to mention that’s very very important is that if you have a uric acid crystals in the kidney they’re little stones or gout you need to fix the insulin you need to lower the insulin okay because it usually comes from insulin resistance I’m going to put a link down below to give you the data I just wanted a more of a comprehensive video because I have a lot of different videos talking about different aspects but this is a real comprehensive videos just to give you the overview of what to do if you had a kidney stone alright thanks for watching

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
I recommend using this electrolyte powder to spike your potassium citrate and magnesium citrate:

Dr. Berg talks about dissolving kidney stones. Most stones are calcium oxalate stones. This is different than gallbladder stones.
You need to consume lower oxalate in your diet.
You also need to increase citrates in the diet. Citrates combine with stones.
1. The best way to do this is with lemon juice and potassium citrate. Magnesium is another good mineral, but take in citrate form
2. Avoid oxalates (see below)
3. Avoid calcium from supplements, but dietary calcium is okay, since it can bind with calcium before it turns into stones. However, there is also mixed reviews on this and some say that taking calcium would be okay.
4. Of course if you have a kidney stone, adding more water will help, however, drinking excessive water in general without electrolytes will not prevent kidney stones. The key is drinking adequate amounts of fluid. Sometimes when I tell people not to drink excessive amounts, they interpret this as to avoid drinking water – no, just drink when you are thirsty and if you have a stone or develop stones easily, drink more.
5. Vitamin D most likely will help prevent kidney stones. This is an excellent read:
6. Vitamin K2 helps keep calcium out of the soft tissues of the body and this is a must.
7. There are mixed reviews on vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid) on if it contributes to stone formation.
8. Too much sodium could contribute to stone formation in some people.
HIGH OXALATE FOODS:
FOOD LOW IN OXALATE
For Uric Acid Stones
This can be triggered from higher amounts of insulin or sugar intake. It can also be triggered from ketosis. Potassium citrate will help this.
GREAT REFERENCE ON OXALATES:
DATA ON SPINACH
