We began this archive as a means of assisting our visitors in answering many of their health and diet questions, and in encouraging them to take a pro-active part in their own health.  We believe the articles and information contained herein are true, but are not presenting them as advice.  We, personally, have found that a whole food vegan diet has helped our own health, and simply wish to share with others the things we have found.   Each of us must make our own decisions, for it's our own body.  If you have a health problem, see your own physician.

Helping Patients Avoid Kidney Stones

Here are simple steps to help your patients avoid kidney stones.

  1. Encourage patients to drink plenty of water or other fluids, staying ahead of their thirst.
  2. Diets including generous amounts of vegetables, fruits, and beans are rich in potassium and very low in sodium.
  3. If you prescribe calcium supplements, encourage patients to take them with meals, rather than between meals.
  4. Encourage patients to avoid animal products. Their proteins and sodium content increase the risk of stones.
  5. Patients should keep salt and sugar use modest.
