Kidney stones originate in the kidneys and will sometimes migrate into the urinary tract. This can be very painful especially with small stones. Sometimes, the patient urinates the stone away and the pain stops. In medical terms this pathology is called urinary lithiasis.

 An acute attack of it is called renal colic. It is extremely painful. In turn, a silent form with bigger stones that stay in the kidney can destroy it and may need to be operated on.


 A decoction of wild linden sapwood will avoid recurrence of an illness that has a tendency to repeat itself. Sapwood is the living part of the wood, just under the bark. The tree will have to be felled. Many thanks to that tree from the primitive forest that is sacrificed for us. To make a decoction you will boil 40 g of sapwood in one liter for 15 minutes. This is to drink every day, cold, lukewarm or hot, as you wish. The therapy will last three weeks and shall be repeated during ten days, once, twice or thrice a year. This decoction will also clean up your liver, our built-in chemical lab that contributes to the synthesis, the renewal and the detoxication of our organism.

 During an acute attack, homeopathy will give us some relief (Calcarea Carbonica 15 CH every ten minutes). This is another one of the remedies we should have in our luggage when leaving for a trip if we are subject to kidney stones. Attacks will frequently occur after a long journey in a car, a train or a plane, especially if the weather is hot and you haven’t had the opportunity to hydrate sufficiently. Diagnosis is when the patient suffers from a unilateral pain radiating through genitals and persisting whatever the position. If Calcarea Carbonica 15 CH doesn’t bring enough relief, a doctor will be called to make an injection of antispasmodic.

 With all the above precautions, my patients of several decades have not suffered from a recurrence.

 Note that I prescribed two days of the mentioned decoction to my patients who were having an injection of their semi-annual dose of vitamin D before getting it. It was to avoid a possible precipitation of calcium. I now prescribe a previous vitamin D assay. It appears 2/3 of the French population is in a state of deficiency!

 But, come to think of it, what are those stones made of? Most times, of calcium salts. That is why I recommend to seriously reduce their over-consumption of milk and dairy products that are so highly praised in the media. It is always better to prevent than to cure. The stones may also be made of cholesterol and/or uric acid.

 When I was told that Georges Brassens (a great French author and singer) had suffered from that illness all his life and died from it, I thought, “what a pity he wasn’t my patient.” Had he not suffered as much, would he have been the same artist? But that is another question.
