Risks of Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are known to be one of the most painful of all urinary disorders. Many kidney stone sufferers often wait to pass it on its own. This could not only be extremely painful, but could cause severe damage on its way out.
Waiting Longer Could Cause the Stone To Grow In Size!
Waiting for the stone to pass is not a sound option since it tends to make the condition worse as kidney stones can potentially grow in size and expose the sufferer to undue levels of stress and pain.An effective way to help eliminate and prevent kidney stones is by introducing natural substances in your urine that help breakdown the stone's chemical composition. These substances are called lithontriptic agents, which could be found in Renavive®, and have remarkable scientific evidence proving they work.
