Remedies with NO Benefit

Many people are attracted to the idea of “natural remedies” as they sound safe and are promoted as healthy and side effect free. In fact, many of these substances do have side effects, can be costly and are of no clinical benefit. Just because a particular substance is promoted on a website does not mean it works.

There is no evidence that the following reduce kidney stone formation:

  • Vitamins.
  • Herbal remedies.
  • Naturopathic substances.
  • Exercise.

Medical Practitioners are always keen to recommend substances which are tested, proven and have a well-documented side effect profile.
