Causes and Symptoms of Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are hard, jagged formations made of various minerals and salts that form inside the kidneys (1). They can develop for a number of reasons, with the main causes being (2):

  • Dehydration – chronic low urine volume resulting from not drinking enough fluids regularly
  • Obesity – leading to acidification of the urine
  • Diet – high consumption of animal protein, salt, and oxalates
  • Chronic Diarrhea – conditions such as Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as weight loss surgery, that result in diarrhea
  • Medications and Supplements – some are known to increase risk, always check with your doctor before changing your medication regiment
  • Family History – increases the likelihood of their development
causes and symptoms of kidney stones are varied, but one look at this jagged little stone shows you just how painful they are.

The most widely known symptom of kidney stones is the terrible pain they create in the side, back, and abdomen when passing out of the body. I’ve witnessed family members first hand suffering through this process, and it’s not a pretty site. Symptoms that serve as warning signs before they pass are (2,3):

  • Increased need and feeling to need to urinate
  • Burning upon urination
  • Blood in the urine
  • Foul-smelling or cloudy urine
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever and chills

Coconut Water for Kidney Stones

As dehydration is one of the major causes of kidney stones, being properly hydrated is an excellent preventative measure. Coconut water is known to increase hydration, as well as help prevent renal oxidative stress (4, 5), making coconut water for kidney health a great way to get rid of and prevent these stones in the first place. This recipe employs it, as well as the kidney-loving power of pineapple.

Compounds like oxalate and calcium can form crystals in the urine, eventually creating kidney stones. Coconut water not only increases hydration, it may also prevent those crystals from sticking to the kidney and urinary tract surfaces, lowering the risk of kidney stone formation (4).

Pineapples for juicing for kidney stones.

Pineapple, too, may help lower your risk of developing kidney stones by offering low-potassium hydration (there’s that hydration again!). For those with underlying kidney disease, consuming low-potassium foods is a typical part of their daily diet. Also present in pineapple is the enzyme bromelin, an important anti-inflammatory.

Description

Passing kidney stones is a remarkably painful experience that no one wants to go through. There are things we can do to help prevent them, like drinking this delicious juice!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Uber Ripe Pineapple
  • 1/2 C Fresh Coconut Milk

Instructions

Fresh Coconut Milk

  1. Crack open the coconut, carefully capturing the coconut water.
  2. Scrape out the white flesh, removing any brown rind that remains.
  3. Blend the flesh, coconut water, and 20 oz water until smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into a fine mesh bag and press the liquid into a bowl or pitcher and set aside.

Final Tropi-Coco Mylk Juice

  1. Cut off the top, remove the skin (optional), and chop the pineapple.
  2. Run the pineapple through your juicer.
  3. Mix the pineapple juice with the coconut milk and enjoy!

Notes

You can make your fresh coconut milk using either mature coconut, as I’ve done, or young coconut. The difference will be in the resulting milk. A mature coconut will give you a creamier, denser milk while the young will yield a thinner, lighter one. Either one will work with this recipe, so try both and see which you like best. Stay Juicy!!!
