Kidney stones caused by acidic soft drinks; can be reversed with nutrition and herbs such as corn silk
by Mike Adams
A new study from the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas reveals that the more overweight a person is, the more likely they are to have kidney stones. According to reports, the researchers conclude that obesity and diabetes actually cause the kidney stones. I have an alternate theory.
We already know that kidney stones are regularly formed when people drink soft drinks. The more soft drinks they consume, the more overweight they become, and the more likely they are to be diagnosed as diabetic or obese. As a result, there is a strong correlation between rates of obesity and kidney stones -- because they have the same fundamental cause! Soft drinks (http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/kk/kidneystones.php
This may be yet one more reason to avoid consuming soft drinks: they not only cause diabetes (http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/dd/diabetes.php
) and obesity (http://www.dreddyclinic.com/findinformation/ww/obesity.php
), they also cause kidney stones. By the way, if you're wondering exactly how soft drinks cause kidney stones, it's because of their acidity and radical mineral imbalances. Your body must buffer the acidity of soft drinks with calcium from your own bones. As this calcium is eliminated through your urine, it slowly forms kidney stones. Getting rid of the kidney stones is easy with the right nutrition and herbs. Just switch to a strongly alkaline diet by eating chlorella, spirulina, vegetables, green foods and superfoods while eliminating acidic ingredients from your diet (white flour, refined white sugar, soft drinks, fruit juices, etc.). Then take Amazon herbs like chanca piedra to break up the kidney stones. You can also make a soup by boiling corn silk (yes, the silky part of the corn husk) along with marshmallow herb. Drink this concoction every day for a month (under the supervision of an herbalist, of course), and your kidney stones will dissolve and be eliminated.
