Colocynthis 30c is the remedy to help you to pass Kidney Stones. Dose 3 pellets taken sublingually, 3 times daily.

You state however that you are already passing them and that you need a remedy to lessen the pain and to help stop the bleeding in the penis. The remedy I would recommend to help with this problem is Arnica 30c in the wet dose taken every 3 hours till the bleeding and pain are relieved.

The wet dose is made by inserting 3 pellets of the remedy into a 500ml bottle of spring water from which you have poured out about an inch from the top to provide air space. You will shake the bottle hard to aerate it, thereby succussing the water which is now the remedy and you will do this routine every time before you sip a teaspoonful which is a dose, 3 times daily.

Drink plenty of water up to 5 ltrs daily to enable your kidneys to flush the stones out.

No coffee, cola and other canned beverages and preserved meats like ham, bacon and sausages which contain saltpeter.

Have you done a scan (MRI) of your kidneys ?

Report response in a few days.

Glad to note that my therapy has helped you so far. Please indicate for how long you have suffered from your problem and what treatment you have had previously.

The reason for your current distress is due to your kidneys constantly producing these stones. When a stone is passed it lacerates the passage down through the Ureter and later the Urethra thereby causing the bloody discharge.

I would like you to take Calc Fluor 3x tablets Dose 2 tablets 3 times daily to hopefully prevent the constant formation of these stones.

It is possible that you may have to take these remedies for some time in the future and it is important that you report progress frequently to enable me to adjust your dosage as necessary.

I am copying an article on Kidney Stones which will give you more details of your problem.

Kidney Stones

What is a kidney stone?

A kidney stone, or "urinary stone," develops when crystals from salt and mineral substances form in the urine. These crystals can combine and grow to form a stone.

The stones can range in size from a grain of salt to a golf ball, or even larger. Some stones may move to other parts of the urinary system, including the bladder and the ureter (the vessel that transports urine from the kidney to the bladder).

What are the symptoms of a kidney stone?
The most common symptoms of kidney stones are blood in the urine and pain. You may not be able to see the blood in your urine, and your doctor will need to test the urine with a dipstick. The stone can cause pain once it passes into the ureter. Typically, the pain starts in the back by the rib cage and travels around to the side as the stone moves. It may also radiate (spread out) into the groin.

Other symptoms include:

* Feeling the need to urinate often
* Inability to urinate (because a stone is blocking the urinary tract)
* Nausea
* Vomiting

Rarely, a stone can cause an infection in the urine by blocking its flow. Cloudy, foul-smelling urine, fever, chills, or weakness may be signs of a serious infection.

How are kidney stones diagnosed?
To determine if you have kidney stones, the doctor will ask you about your diet, use of medication, lifestyle, and your family's medical history.

Several tests are used to look for kidney stones, including abdominal X-ray, ultrasound, intravenous pyelography (IVP), or computed tomography (CT) scan. In IVP, you receive an injection of dye before the X-ray is taken. The dye is used to get a better image of the size and location of the kidney stone.

You may also undergo a urine test to detect very small kidney stones in the urine. The urine is collected and strained, and any stones found in the urine are analyzed to determine their chemical composition.

How are kidney stones treated?
Kidney stones can usually be treated without surgery. Your doctor, or a kidney specialist, may check the chemical composition of the urine by asking you to collect your urine for a full 24 hours. Then, adjustments in your diet and fluid intake may be prescribed to help stop formation of stones. Water intake is the most important step in helping to reduce kidney stone formation. Drinking up to three quarts of fluids a day will cause the urine to be very dilute, and chemicals will have less of a chance crystallizing together and forming stones.

If your kidney stone doesnít pass through your urinary system on its own, your doctor may refer you to a urologist, who can remove stones when they become a problem. The procedures for removing kidney stones include the following:

* Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL)
ESWL (extracorporeal means "outside the body") is a procedure that uses shock waves to smash the kidney stone into tiny pieces that can pass from the body. It is usually used for smaller stones. In ESWL, the patient is placed in a large tub of water. The urologist locates the kidney stone with an X-ray or ultrasound. Shock waves are generated and travel through the water to the kidney area and crush the stone.

ESWL is performed on an outpatient basis and the patient can go home a few hours after the procedure. Side effects include blood in the urine for a few days and bruising in the back (caused by the shock waves).

* Percutaneous nephrolithotomy
This is more of a surgical procedure and is intended for larger kidney stones. The urologist makes an incision in the patientís back and inserts an instrument called a nephroscope into the kidney to remove the stone. In some cases, the urologist may need to use ultrasound to break a larger stone into smaller pieces. Following the procedure, the patient remains in the hospital for a few days.

* Ureteroscopy
This procedure is performed when the stone is located in the ureter. The urologist slips an instrument called a ureteroscope through the urethra (the tube through which the urine passes) into the bladder and up to the ureter. The urologist can then remove the stone with a device that resembles a cage or use ultrasound shock waves to pulverize the stone.

One thing that always follows kidney stones is the unbearable pain and consequently the urgency in the patient to get rid of the stones as quickly as possible. In the process, the stone which is flushed out from the kidney is too big to pass through the ureter creating situations like hydronephrosis. The first choice in a case of kidney stones is Berberis Vulg. Q. In cases where Beri beris 200C have been prescribed, the stones came out too quickly and get stuck in the ureter that surgical procedures have to be resorted to. In cases where Q has been prescribed it takes about 2 weeks time and the process is paineless as the stone gets softened, and the patient not even knows that the stone has already been expelled. Apart from Colocynthis, Mag Phos would be another alternative for reducing pain. A dose or two or urtica uren. and oxalic acid would do well to do the sweeping and cleaning of the kidney. with best wishes.

Joe De Livera, I have had problems with kidney stones for quite a few years, but have been able to pass them without any problems.Other times I have trouble passing them, but this time with your advice, the problem has cleared up! I will take Calc Flour 3x tablets, 2 tablets 3 times daily and beat this painful nemesis once and for all! Thank You

Glad I was able to help you.

I note that you are not taking the Colocynthis which does not seem to be indicated now as you seem to have passed the stones in your Kidneys. I would suggest however that you have this matter checked with a scan to determine whether this remedy is needed now.

You can take 2 Calc Fluor 3x tablets 3 times daily for the moment as this will prevent the formation of K stones. We can reduce the dosage to just twice daily in a few days.

Also drink copious quantities of water and report the result of your scan ASAP.

It was about kidney stones, in these days I totally forget all about them because I did not have any pain. I will get the check up scheduled soon.

It is now over 7 months since you first reported your problem with your Kidney Stones and I am delighted that you have not experienced them ever after.

I would advice you however to take 2 Calc Fluor 3x tablets at least once daily to ensure that you do not have a repeat performance of your original problem. This small dosage taken daily will ensure that your Kidneys are deprogrammed from forming them again.

Please also remember that it is essential that you drink at least 4 ltrs water daily.

I do not have any experience in making remedies like Girilal does but I doubt that even he can help you with Calc Fluor which has to be in the 3x potency.

It is best to order it ASAP as you will have to take it for life to prevent the formation of the Calculi.

IP addresses need not be available to the general public.

In most parts of U.S.A. the IP addresses are static. It is surprising that you didn't know this.

Thanks for reminding me gavini. Few day ago a lady emailed me and cautioned me that she had a chance to be persecuted in her country if they found out she is discussing her ladies problems here on the website.

Now we will only show coded ip addresses.
Mr. Charles is my neighbour.
