Hello Friend,


A cheery Friday to you!

I hope that you/your extended furry family is doing well

If you have yet to try Krill, you may want to give it another look

In my last Youtube video, I discussed a study which showed great results for treating cancer using low dose Panacur, plus antioxidant Vitamins A and E- both of these, PLUS Astaxanathin ( another potent antioxidant) are in good levels in Krill oil.

My Antioxidant rich and healthy Krill is here:

What is chanca piedra?

Chanca piedra is an herb that grows in tropical areas, like the rainforests of South America. Its scientific name is Phyllanthus niruri.

It also goes by a number of other names, such as:

  • stone breaker

Kidney stones

Chanca piedra is best known as a potential kidney stone cure — which is how it earned the name “stone breaker.”

The herb is alkaline, so it may help prevent acidic kidney stones. It’s a less expensive, over-the-counter alternative to prescription potassium citrate, an alkalizing agent that’s commonly used to prevent acidic kidney stones. It may also help you urinate more.

In one study in 56 people with kidney stones who took 4.5 grams of chanca piedra per day, researchers found that the kidney stones decreased in size and number in about two-thirds of participants.

What’s more, other small human studies have observed some benefit to taking chanca piedra for kidney stones.

Dogs/Cats and Calcium Oxalate Stones

This is a less common bladder stone that is very difficult to treat- ( far most common is struvite)

Calcium oxalates form when the urine pH is too low- although making the urine pH low helps dissolve struvite.. ( see the problem..)

  • One of the principles in treatment is providing less building blocks for the stones ( ie oxalates), increasing fluid, and slightly raising the urine pH

  • AVOID feeding Spinach, Soy and Potatoes as they are HIGH in Oxalates

  • Canned Food, Home diets to INCREASE fluid consumption

  • Slight rise in urine pH- veterinary wise we would prescribe Sodium citrate- but it seems a safer, potentially more helpful option is this plant

'Chanca Piedra'

It has been fairly widely used, and few side effects are noted

A suggested dog/cat dose is 100mg/10lbs daily
