Water and Kidney Stones
The extremely significant role that water plays in the prevention and treatment of urinary tract calculations is a well-established and widely shared fact in scientific medical literature.
Indeed, it has been ascertained that a high content of fixed residue, typically found in so-called “hard” waters, or rich in alkaline salts, especially calcium and magnesium, constitutes an element that can contribute to the onset of renal pathologies.
The majority of kidney stones are composed of “calcium oxalate”, in pure form or associated with calcium phosphate, whose formation is generally caused by an increase in the concentration of calcium in the urine caused by external factors, such as a diet – solid and liquid – too rich in calcium or, on the contrary, poor in liquids, without triggering pathology.
A general recommendation valid for all those already affected by this disorder, or exposed to the risk of suffering from it, consists in following certain dietary measures that have proved to be quite effective in reducing relapses as well as new insurgencies. The most important measure to be taken in terms of diet is to take an adequate volume of liquids, introducing in the body preferably water with reduced calcium content.
Drinking water with a low content of fixed residue helps in the treatment of renal pathology and prevents the onset of the calculations: • by diluting the content of mineral salts present in the urine, thus preventing the risk of granular constipation at the origin of the calculations; • making the urine alkaline and alleviating any colic associated with renal diseases.
The natural prevention of calculosis therefore also passes through the quantity and quality of the water introduced into our body. A360 ° can contribute to the daily prevention work with a range of plants and consultancy and assistance services in terms of water purification and water purification.
