Blessings requested: Severe pain due to kidney stone

Post by runewulf » Thu Oct 13, 2005 2:49 pm

Hey all,

Normally I wouldn't ask, but I've been in severe pain for the last 4 days and I thought my apendix was going. I went to the clinic today and found out it's not the apendix, but a severe kidney stone. Any blessings/energy would be appreciated.

Thanks all,

Ouch - will definately send blessings and healing energy your way.

Have you asked the doc about treatments? They can put you in a tub of water and hit it with high frequency sound waves to break it apart - from what I've heard it's practically painless and no cutting involved.

All my best to you.

Ugh. I know your pain, mon frère. I will be sending something your way tonight.

Stormy speaks the truth. Sonic treatments are pretty painless. They feel a little weird. But it doesn't hurt. Basically what it does is bust the larger deposits up into smaller peices that you are able to expell with ease.

Or so they say. That last part can still burn, but it's nothing compared to the horrible, unidentifiable pain that a stone will bring to your back and stomach. I thought I'd pulled a muscle till it migrated from my back to my stomach.

Blessings, bro.

Definitely sending some good vibes your way, I've heard they can be horribly painful. [-o<

Also, since I already have Prescription for Herbal Healing by Phyllis A. Balch out, I will list some herbs that may help you.
Aloe juice, 1/4 cup daily, contains aliemannan, which slows the rate of crysal formation. Do not use for more than 2 weeks at a time, take if you are menstruating, have rectal bleeding, or are taking any kind of diuretic. It is also a laxative if taken in doses higher than those recommended.

Birch Leaf tea bags, prepared with 1 cup water taken 3x daily stimulates urination and stops spasm. (Specific birch not noted here, but I am not sure of poison in any varieties past the white, black, or sweet.)

Chanca piedra tincture, taken as directed on label, dissolves calcium stones.

Khella in any standardized form, 20mg daily, helps the urinary passage heal after passing a stone. (Khella makes the skin especially sensitive to ultraviolet light. Avoid tanning lamps and use sunblock when outdoors, and discontinue use if exposure to strong sunlight is unavoidable. Do not take this herb if you are on the blood-thinner warfarin (Coumadin).

Marshmallow root tea, 1 quart drinked daily, helps cleanse the kidneys and expel kidney stones. (I've had nothing but good experience with marshmallow root and the digestive system.)

Varuna tea 1tbsp in 1 cup water 3x daily inhibits an enzyme essential for the formation of calcium oxalate stones.

These are taken right out of the book.

I really hope this helps.

Thanks everyone...

Unfortunately, they don't do the water sonic treatment around here and won't consider any of the others unless I go another 2 weeks without passing it, ugh :roll:

Yes, Marshmallow root is a very good thing... also very good for respitory issues, flus, asthma, etc.

Again, thanks all, this is brutal.

I got to this a wee bit late. I hope things go well for you. I've heard of the procedure Stormy brought up and think it is a wonderful thing to make this less painful. CHL, I like the herbal suggestions...I had no idea that there were so many things to deal with kidney stones.
Still, I just hope the brutality is left at a minimum.

Thanks again everyone, it's been real bad today, obviously since I'm still up at 6:30 am. If the pain eases enough, I'm heading over to the healthfood store tomorrow... ummm, this afternoon, to get some cranberry extract capsules, which should speed the process up. Until then, just lots of water and tea and pain killers.

merci mes amis... managed to get the cranberry extract today and have started taking that, so hopefully I'll be on my way to recovery this upcoming week.

Owies, I can only imagine, as I have never had one, but I will most definitely be lighting a candle for you, blessings and I hope this doesn't last too much longer. [-o< =P~
Maybe now you're starting to understand that while I may have been born predispositioned to be pretty batty, my parents saw to it that it was a certainty and completely unavoidable. -Me

I hope you're feeling well now. I too know what it's like to have an kidney stone. I had a small stone many years ago. Heal fast and gently.
