Before they put me to sleep, the doctors were shocked to find that the stone gone - Oren Zarif

Bella from Rishon LeZion suffered from kidney stone and was referred for crushing by the top waves. After Oren Zarif's treatments, she showed up at the appointment scheduled at the hospital and surprised everyone that kidney stones (Nephrolithiasis) had disappeared.

Bella from Rishon Lezion received a very beautiful gift for Rosh Hashanah - the stone in her right kidney disappeared thanks to the treatments of Oren Zarif in the subconscious.

Bella was referred to hospital for ambulatory treatment of kidney stone crushing by the top waves. In an attempt to avoid the unpleasant treatment, she came to Oren Zarif's clinic and told him about the problem.

In a short period of time she managed to do five treatments through the subconscious and even she did not believe that it would prevent her from the treatment in the hospital ...

On kidney stones

Kidney stones - a disease characterized by the presence of one or more stones in the kidneys and urinary tract. The stones form when the urine becomes too thick due to the presence of various salts in a high concentration inside it.

This phenomenon leads to the crystallization of crystals made of minerals dissolved in the urine that are inside the kidneys or urinary tract. They are different in size and can be as small as a grain or as large as a golf ball.

Normally, there is a mechanism in the urinary system that prevents the formation of crystals, but when this mechanism fails, the stones are formed.

Typically kidney stones are naturally excreted from the body through the urinary system; In case the stone has grown to a relatively large size such a stone may block the passage of urine and cause severe pain felt on the lower abdomen and groin.

Blocking the passage of urine over time can lead to severe impairment of kidney function and therefore requires prompt treatment.

Main reasons for the formation of stones

In more than half of the cases, calcium stones are formed for no known reason. This condition is called Idiopathic Hypercalciuria. Blood tests do not show signs of excess calcium in the blood and often it is present in other relatives as well.

Apparently, this condition is due to polygenic heredity (which involves several genes) and leads to excessive excretion of calcium in the urine and overactivity of vitamin D.

In order to diagnose that this is indeed an idiopathic condition, it is necessary to rule out other causes that may lead to a change in the metabolism of minerals, such as hyperthyroidism, Cushing's syndrome, sarcoidosis, malignancies and more.

In the past, people tended to think that these patients should be restricted in calcium intake, but it was found that this restriction actually increases the risk of stones (less calcium is present in the intestines and therefore it binds less to oxalate, which leads to an increase in oxalate concentration in urine).

Therefore, the current recommendation is a low-sodium and low-protein diet and, if necessary, the administration of thiazide-type variables that reduce the excretion of calcium in the urine.

About 20% of all calcium oxalate stones are formed due to increased consumption of meat and fish (containing purine). This condition is called Hyperuricosuria, which means excess uric acid in the urine (above 750 mg) in the presence of calcium oxalate stones. In these situations, eating foods containing purines and, if necessary, taking aloprinol should be minimized.

Primary hyperparathyroidism is a condition in which there is an increase in the levels of the hormone parathyroid hormone (PTH), which leads to increased levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia). This condition is more common in women than men and leads to the formation of calcium stones in the urine. Treatment is surgical: removal of the tumor leading to this discharge.
