having to do with renal nephrolithiasis, what does gravity dependent mean?

"Gravity dependent" is not a medical term. It may mean some seriousness attached to it. (Not sure)
If a kidney stone is particularly large it can completely block the flow of urine down one ureter. This can lead to permanent damage to the kidney if it is not treated quickly. However, such complications are unusual as large stones usually cause significant pain, and are then quickly identified and removed.
Please beware of the following complications:-
Recurrence of stones
Urinary tract infection
Obstruction of the ureter, acute unilateral obstructive uropathy
Kidney damage, scarring
Decrease or loss of function of the affected kidney.
Please see the webpages for more details on Kidney stones.  (+ info)

Garlic (Allium sativum) and Onion (Allium cepa)

Part Used: Cloves

Uses: Garlic and its relative, the onion (Allium cepa) help reduce blood glucose levels. These plants contain sulfur compounds that have chemical structures similar to those of insulin, and these compounds-allicin and allyl propyl disulphide-are believed to lower glucose levels. Garlic is a wide acting natural antibiotic that helps prevent all kinds of diseases. As an antibiotic it can kill infecting bacteria and at the same time protect the body from the poisons that are causing the infection. It is known that the most sensitive bacterium to garlic is the deadly Bacillus anthracis which produces the poison anthrax. Garlic and its juice cure all kinds of diseases, bronchitis, tuberculosis, herpes virus, candida, mycobacteria, yeast organisms, antifungal, antiparasitic, kidney infections, gall, obesity, hydrophobia, eczema, skin diseases, melancholy, hysteria, rheumatism, heart diseases, fear, climatic periods, asthma, aids and others. New research shows that taking garlic during pregnancy can cut the risk of pre-eclampsia (raised blood pressure and protein in urine). Studies also reveal that garlic may help boost the birth-weight of babies destined to be too small. Garlic also lowers cholesterol, triglyceride, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels while increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. Garlic is available in powder, tablet, capsules, and liquid. Fresh uncooked garlic is the best way to reap its benefits.
Dose: One clove 3x a day; or one-half teaspoon of the juice 3x daily after eating. Take commercial products according to package directions. If the infection is gone dosage can be reduced for maintenance of well being and health.  (+ info)
