‘Gallstones and Kidney Stones: Differences and Similarities: Natural Therapies with Rio Health’

Presented by Rose Holmes, BSc (Hons), Dip.ION, PGCE, mBANT, CNHC

Stone formation in the human body—in gallbladders and kidneys—affect many people and may manifest with similar symptoms although both can also be asymptomatic. Although gallstones and kidney stones are 2 different disease processes and considered unassociated, some people who have risk for one may have problems with both, and a 2014 study found that the risk of renal stones is significantly higher in gallstone patients compared with the general population.

Oxalate urolithiasis is the most frequent type of kidney stone disease and has been shown to be approximately twice as common in men as women. The lifetime incidence of renal stones in men is about 10 percent. Most commonly men aged 30-50 are affected. Chronic urinary tract infections (more common in women) associate with kidney stone formation. Risk factors for kidney stones include nutritional factors.

Whilst kidney stones are more common in men, gallstones are more common in women with the risk increasing if those overweight or over age 40. Gallstones are very common and it is estimated that 1 in 10 adults in the UK has gallstones although only a minority develop symptoms. Hormonal imbalance (including pregnancy and use of birth control pills) may associate.

Gallstones are ‘born out of the sludge from cholesterol and bile salts’ which becomes concentrated and thickens. Treatment often involves conventional or keyhole surgery to remove the gallbladder. Gallbladder surgery (cholecystectomy) is one of the most common operations in the UK, with around 60,000 performed in the UK each year; the presence of gallstones is the most common reason for these.

This webinar will explore factors that contribute to stone formation, preventive strategies (diet, lifestyle and supplements) including discussion of a most amazing botanical known as ‘the stone breaker’—Phyllanthus niruri, aka Quebra Pedra (or Chanca Piedra).
