In this video, we’re going to talk about ketosis and kidney stones.

When you’re on a ketogenic diet, your body gets rid of more calcium than usual through your urine. Consuming foods high in oxalates, combined with calcium, can contribute to kidney stones.

Foods high in oxalates include:
• Cruciferous vegetables (especially spinach)
• Tea
• Chocolate

To reduce the risk of this happening, it’s important to consume dietary calcium. Rather than combining with oxalates in the kidneys, oxalates can combine with calcium earlier in the digestive tract. This helps you reduce the risk of kidney stones.

Being low on citrates is another potential cause of kidney stones. Lemon juice is great for replenishing citrates.

In summary, the best remedies for kidney stones are:
• Food-based dietary calcium
• Lemon juice (at least one lemon daily)
• Avoid high-oxalate foods
• Magnesium
