Stix and Stones - Kidney Health and Stone and UTI Support
Stix and Stones is used holistically to help support healthy kidney function and to reduce inflammation in the bladder and kidneys related to urinary tract infections; to help break up kidney, liver, gallbladder and bladder stones, gravel, crystals and calculi, providing a preventative layer of support against all types of urinary infections and stone formation in the kidneys, ureters and bladder, due to its natural plant chemical content including antioxidants, lignans, glycosides, flavonoids, linolic acid, alkaloids, ellagitannins, phenylpropanoids, lipids, sterols, and flavonols. Stix and Stones contains healthy, natural plant chemicals that are strongly antiviral, antibacterial, antispasmodic and analgesic (pain relieving). (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
Stix and Stones acts to help safely remove stones from the animal body without surgical intervention and is effective on over 90% of all stones, crystals and calculi. It may also help to reduce spasmodic activity in the kidneys, bladder and ureter, supporting the smooth expulsion of stones from the animal body and increases the secretion of bile in the liver, boosting digestion and reducing the risk of gallstones. Meanwhile, it actively works to help tone, balance, strengthen, detoxify, revitalize and protect the kidneys, liver, intestines, pancreas and gall bladder against infection and disease. Strongly antiviral, antibacterial, antispasmodic and analgesic (pain relieving).
This plant wonder works to help combat persistent kidney infections (upper urinary tract) and bladder infections (lower urinary tract) by reducing cortisol and calcium levels in the blood as well as works to help normalize pH levels so that neither acidity or alkalinity is present; a critical component as it relates to the prevention of all types of stones.
Stix and Stones also works to minimize the likelihood of crystal and stone formation by blocking their formation in the kidneys and bladder (i.e. calcium oxalate stones result from acidic urine; struvite stones from alkaline urine). It also carries out reparative actions against the dysfunction that allows stones to form by helping to block unwanted material from entering kidney cells and supporting their safe elimination in the urinary tract. It's also a pain reliever, and a natural alternative to aspirin or acetaminophen, which may help your dog or cat feel relief during and after their stones are broken up. (* As recommended by holistic veterinarians for use under a traditional medical system)
While genetics can predispose your dog or cat to all types of stone formation, diet is usually the primary factor, but also unfiltered tap water, treats with inferior proteins, fillers and other questionable ingredients, synthetic medications and an acidic diet can all be contributing causes.
