Let’s talk about oxalates and the best ways to flush out oxalates to help prevent kidney stones.

Signs your oxalate levels are high:
• Kidney stones
• Gout
• Headaches
• Eye pain
• Urinary pain
• Genital pain
• Muscle pain
• Intestinal pain

Foods high in oxalates:
• Almonds
• Peanuts
• Spinach
• Chocolate
• Kiwi
• Strawberries
• Beets
• Tea
• Bran

Dietary oxalates aren’t correlated with oxalates in your urine. Just because you consume foods high in oxalates doesn’t mean you will develop any problems.

But, preexisting damage to your kidneys, liver, or metabolism can cause you to be unable to process oxalates like you should. Diabetes, prediabetes, insulin resistance, and carb consumption can lead to kidney problems.

A lack of certain microbes can also prevent you from breaking down oxalates, causing them to end up in the kidneys.

Many people who go on the ketogenic diet no longer have a problem dealing with oxalates. But if you’re still experiencing issues, you can try these tips.

What to do if you have high oxalate levels or are prone to kidney stones:
1. Limit foods high in oxalates or consume them with cheese
2. Take a probiotic with a mixture of lactobacillus
3. Maintain higher levels of magnesium and citrates (by consuming magnesium and lemon)
4. Get plenty of vitamin D
5. Drink at least two and a half liters of fluid a day

    I got sadly before. It was smaller the a tip of a pen and it hurt crazy. I was in pain 1 week long. Then I watched the older video of Dr. Berg, I started to drink apple cider vinegar (one tablespoon in a cup of water). After two days, the stone came out without any pain.

    Edit: Actually it was half a lemon + ACV! Sorry, I forgot!

      I have a 6.6 MM stone sitting on my kidney. How do I get it out?? Stupid doctor refuses to blast it with a laser. Wth??

    • @fastrack2170 says:

      2 days after drinking ACV? So if we drink it regularly, we’re good? Lol

    • @KellyKelly-qd7my says:

      “What is shock wave lithotripsy?

      Shock Wave Lithotripsy (SWL) is the most common treatment for kidney stones in the U.S. Shock waves from outside the body are targeted at a kidney stone causing the stone to fragment. The stones are broken into tiny pieces. lt is sometimes called ESWL: Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy®.

      These are what the words mean:

      extracorporeal: from outside the body
      shock waves: pressure waves
      lithotripsy (the Greek roots of this word are “litho” meaning stone, “tripsy” meaning crushed)
      So, SWL describes a nonsurgical technique for treating stones in the kidney or ureter (the tube going from the kidney to the bladder) using high-energy shock waves. Stones are broken into “stone dust” or fragments that are small enough to pass in urine. lf large pieces remain, another treatment can be performed

      When can SWL be used?

      SWL works better with some stones than others. Very large stones cannot be treated this way. The size and shape of stone, where it is lodged in your urinary tract, your health, and your kidneys’ health will be part of the decision to use it. Stones that are smaller than 2 cm in diameter are the best size for SWL. The treatment might not be effective in very large ones.”

    Question: if you want magnesium and citrates why would you take magnesium glycinate instead of magnesium citrate?

  • @HeleneNutrientsRich says:

    I used to have pain from eating lots of walnuts if I did not soak them in water for a day or so. Now I simply eat them with fermented raw milk or homemade kefir. No pain anymore.

    I had 2 times stone in my left kidney , and the doctor told me these are calcium stones ,because they break off easyly with medicine, so I drink lots of water , along with Urodonal (small rice like sparking lemon flovour) in water twice and few medicine , and after 2, to 3 weeks the stones just vanished in ultra sound

  • @LikhithaSai-ng7vp says:

    Thank you Dr. Eric sir the way you explain everything in detail is really good thank you for valuable for information

  • @wardengrn says:

    Had them twice, 15 years apart. Doctor said there is a majic number when they show their nasty head. I love foods with oxalates. Haven’t always drank enough water but for 1 1/2 year of Dr Berg style HKIF, added ACV, lemon water, and hoping that having a healthier gut is going to solve the issue. I can tell you that it is smart to visit a urologists at least 1 or 2 times a year and have an on call nurses number for when the hot cast iron cattle prod jams in your kidney, you scream and drop to the floor. I will say the before HKIF I had cronic acid reflux and now I take no medicine for my stomach now. Eating well has changed my life.

    You have single handedly helped me turn my health around.

    I am deeply grateful for you. I consider you my permanent YouTube doctor

    May God bless you immensely ❤

  • @1967MOC says:

    Thank you for clarifying that food high in oxalates will not contribute to oxalate in the body. I’m from an Italian family, and I eat lots of spinach. Of course, it is the main component of my ravioli filling, but my filling has lots of Parmigiano cheese. We have to eat like our ancestors! Home-made food, when done in balance, doesn’t make you sick.

  • @ritalafleur4417 says:

    Dr. Berg good morning, I’ve been a subscriber of yours for several years! Does all this still apply for people like me that an ectopic left kidney? I’m 1 in 1000 that was born with my kidney like this and there isn’t much information out there regarding the pain in the butt these can be. Can you please see what you can find out about helping cleanse the kidney and body. I’ve gotten nothing but bad advice growing up, now I’m suffering. Thank you .

  • @SylviaLeDoux says:

    Thanks for this info. When I worked in the lab, I saw the Oxalate crystals in my urine. They were affecting my right leg. I found a web page on vulvadynia that listed the high Oxalate foods and started to reduce those. I also started taking calcium-magnesium citrate and that worked! But one other thing it said is that a mild infection makes immune cells that cause the crystals to clump together to form the stones. So adding a cranberry pill helps them flush from the kidney too. Also avoid calcium carbonate. It’s added to foods
