    Can the remedy you have suggested be used by a patient of kidney stones? Please share any other contraindication, if applicable.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      This remedy also contains calcium. However, calcium is derived from the natural sources.

      In scientific world, studies are contradictory.
      1. Some studies have found traditional allopathic calcium supplements can increase risk of recurrence of kidney stones, so allopathic doctors also advise to cut down the daily intake of calcium even from the dietary sources.

      2. Some studies have also shown that dietary calcium can prevent kidney stones.
      These are contradictory things.

      The answer may be that food rich in calcium also contains other nutrients, which balance the effect of calcium in new renal stone formation.

      The same thing is with above remedy because it also contains other herbal ingredients, which are rich in other nutrients. They may balance or reduce the effect of natural calcium in new renal stone formation.

      I have given idea about what the science say in this comment. I am sure that kidney stones will not develop in healthy individuals due to above remedy or natural calcium. As science is not sure about this, so I am also not sure for patients with kidney stones.
