Diet Chart for Kidney Stones

In Ayurveda, it is known as Vrukka Ashmari, Vrukka means Kidney and Ashmari means stone. A kidney stone is a hard mass that forms from crystals in the urine. The most common types of kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones, cystine stones, and uric acid stones. 


As per Ayurveda, unhealthy diet and lifestyle habits lead to the aggravation of Doshas (Ayurvedic humors) and impairment of the digestive fire. This results in the deposition of Ama (toxins) in the body. When these toxins travel down the channels carrying urine, aggravated doshas combine with it and causing its crystallization, resulting in the formation of kidney stones.
