1. when he was diagnosed to have kidney stone, that too with 7 episodes, do tell about the TYPE/SIZE of kidney stone which your Physician has told you?
2. avoid: spinach,milk and milk products, tomatoes, capsicum, water melon, guava, brinjal, lady finger, chocolate, beets,Beans, and peanuts.
3. Avoid using too much salt and sugar, antacid tablets containing calcium and vitamin D
4. increase your intake of potassium and magnesium but avoid phosphorus rich food (cashew nuts,almonds,cumin/poppy seeds)
5. Eat fibre rich diet which combines with calcium in urine and is excreted in stools.
6. because RECCURENT episodes are there check you calcium level and seek opinion of an endocrinologist.

welcome to arogya ayurvediccenter.
There are lot of reasons for recurrent kidney stones.
initially we have to treat for stones present in kidney. there are good ayurveda medicines to eliminte the stones. Then continue the medicines to prevent kidney stones.
proper intake of water, more fibrous vegetarian food will reduce the accumulation of calcium and sediments in the kidneys.
we need more details about your age, details of the problems, history etc. to give correct guidelines
