Did you know that lemon water is awesome for kidney stones? It helps with other things too but I noticed the change when it comes to kidney stones. Every year since I was 17 I would have kidney stones. They would range anywhere from 1mm to 10mm. Those stupid little stones hurt! Luckily I have only had to have 1 surgery to get out my stones. Otherwise I have passed them on my own. Talk about some painful days and months. I have also cut back on my oxalate intake as well. With this “diet” and lemon water I haven’t had a kidney stone this year.
I will have a post about oxalates and what foods to avoid if you have high oxalates. There’s a lot of conflicting information about what to eat and what not to eat. Soft drinks are awful for me especially when I have serious health issues. I had to make a choice to either feel like crap all of the time or to feel better. When I sneak a drink of a soft drink I can automatically tell that my body hates me. I sometimes miss the caffeine so I grab a drink and boy does my body let me know I’ve messed up. So I decided to toss those soft drinks away and stick with water with some lemon. It’s surprising how much harm soft drinks can cause a body.
