Do you have any suggestions for recurring kidney stones?
Q. Dear Terry, “Do you have any suggestions for recurring kidney stones?” — Lori S., Akron, OH
A. Dear Lori, While I do have some suggestions, I encourage you to discuss them with your physician, as they may have additional input.
First, take a good look at your diet. I recommend staying away from all soft drinks, highly acidic juices, refined carbohydrates and sugars. For a more detailed look at an effective diet that works, please see my article, Terry’s Traditional Diet. You also need to make sure you are drinking plenty of water to flush out the kidneys.
I would also recommend adding a combination of vitamin B6, blended with a highly absorbable form of magnesium, like magnesium glycinate chelate, to your daily regimen. While there is no clinical data to support my suggestion, in my many years of creating supplements, the above formulation has never failed to provide excellent support.
Look for a formula that contains the active form of B6 – pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P). Many people (some estimate up to 30% of the population) cannot fully utilize B-vitamins from food and supplements, because these forms of B-vitamins must be converted into the active form before they will function. By using the form of vitamin B6 that is identical to the kind your body utilizes, you bypass this problem entirely. I recommend taking 1-2 capsules of this blend three times daily.
