Roller Coasters Can Jostle out Kidney Stones

Interesting news highlighted in Epoch Times reports that a pilot study conducted by Michigan State University researchers shows that riding a roller coaster might help you pass a kidney stone.

The researchers evaluated 60 patients who said they were able to easily pass a kidney stone after the ride, with rear seating in the coaster being the best seat for success. While this may seem a bit extreme, if it works, then I’m all for it as long as it’s safe for you. In the meantime, there a number of things you can do to both treat and prevent getting kidney stones naturally.

Calcium oxylate crystals, aka kidney “stones,” are essentially hard mineral deposits that form in the kidneys. Many times these stones are so small you don’t notice when they pass through your urinary tract. But when you do feel them, the pain can be excruciating. Fortunately, a recent study has shown that under certain conditions a compound called hydroxycitrate from the Asian garcinia cambogia fruit not only can dissolve the crystals, but inhibit their growth.

More good news is that preventing kidney stones may be as simple as changing your diet. Staying hydrated with water, avoiding soda and sugar, and adding a program of diet and exercise such as high-intensity interval training (HIIT) can help too. Making sure you’re getting enough magnesium and avoiding non-fermented soy also boost kidney health.
