Thomas Recipe and Kidney Stones

Hey everyone, I'm on like my 10th day clean of hydros,oxy's etc. and have been taking most of the vitamins in the Thomas recipe and have been feeling REALLy great!. I take them in the mornings and they just give me great energy and an overall better outlook. My question is is that i had passed about 7 or 8 kidney stones in the past 10 years and i'm wondering if taking these vitamins will somehow hurt my kidneys or possibly cause me to get more kidney stones? In the past the stones were analyzed and were calcium deposits.
Heres what i'm taking:
Magnesium(500mg twice a day)
zinc (50mg)
2 multi mineral vitamins

Thanks everyone, I love this site.

NOne of what u mentioned has calcium in in it except a bit in the multi...should be ok...did ur doctor tell u to avoid dairy products?

To be honest i would get different stories from different doctors. One would say don't drink milk or eat cheese and another would say thats nonsense and to just drink plenty of water. My mother has had them also so i'm not sure if they are hereditary. I haven't passed one it a couple years and hopefully won't anytime soon. I just want to make sure im not hurting anything inside by taking all these vitamins/supplements. Thanks

No...none of those mentioned would hurt..the main key is the water....slam the water...if ur kidneys stay flushed stones will not have time to hang out in ur tubules and form
