Can drinking distilled water help with kidney stones?
Yes – especially when you have been advised to try and make the stone pass on its own. If your kidney stone is small you may be given treatment for the pain and asked to drinking plenty of fluids – enough to make your urine colourless and to pass the stone naturally. Distilled water is better for this than other alternatives as there are no additives, minerals and impurities to make the situation worse.
If you are one of the unlucky few who have had a kidney stone before than you are aware that they can cause a great deal of pain for such a small object. Did you know that around three in every twenty men and one in every twenty women develop kidney stones at some stage in their lives in the UK?
Kidney stones are formed by a build-up of substances in the body and in particular the kidneys. The most common kind are caused by a build up of calcium and they are more likely to be formed if you do not drink enough fluids. A high amount of calcium in the body can be caused by high levels of vitamin D an overactive parathyroid gland as well as other things.
One of the best ways to prevent the occurance of kidney stones is to drink distilled water. As it is pure water containing abosultely zero minerals and pollutants, disilled water cannot create a build up of products and therefore no stones can be formed.
Tap water carries many chemicals and minerals and as such could be one of the leading causes behind your kidney stones. It isn’t worth taking the risk as after buying your ViaFosa water distiller you can have distilled water in the home or office at no further expense. You will notice a difference from the beginning.
