Prevent kidney stones with magnesium oxide and vitamin B6

by , 01 July 2013

According to the Mayo Clinic, kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk. And that's exactly the case with the most common kind of kidney stones: Calcium oxalate kidney stones. Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine and cause calcium oxalate kidney stones. Luckily, you can prevent calcium oxalate kidney stones with magnesium oxide and vitamin B6. Here's how…

According to Dr Jonathan Wright of Nutrition & Healing, in 1974, researchers from Harvard had a study printed in the Journal of Urology showing that calcium oxalate kidney stones could be prevented by supplementing with magnesium oxide and vitamin B6.

Revealed: The link between calcium oxalate kidney stones, magnesium oxide and vitamin B6

In the study, 149 individuals with a multi-year history of recurrent calcium oxalate kidney stones took 300mg a day of magnesium oxide along with 10mg a day of vitamin B6.

“During the six years of the study, the mean rate of stone formation fell from 1.3 kidney stones per year to 0.1 kidney stones per year, a very significant 92.3% reduction,” says Dr Wright. There were no side effects.

According to Dr Wright, although this was discovered a long time ago, most urologists are still in the dark about this natural treatment and they never mention it to their patients.

And “it still amazes me that to this day, I continue to encounter a few calcium oxalate kidney stone sufferers whose urologists haven’t told them to use magnesium and vitamin B6 every day,” he says.

If you have calcium oxalate kidney stones, speak to your urologist about this natural treatment.
