Of the five types of stones that develop in kidneys, CompleatMother.com says 80 per cent are calcium oxalate stones. Conventional medicine uses three types of surgical procedures to remove kidney stones, but they're painful, expensive, have a risk of complications, and recovery can take up to several weeks. Natural remedies are worth considering as they dissolve and lubricate stones so they leave your body without invasive surgery.
Drink lots of water. Drink eight to 10 glasses of water every day (enough to keep your urine clear). Use distilled water since it's free from impurities, salts and minerals that can exacerbate your problem. Hydrating your body can help dissolve your stones and get them out of your system.
Drink three ounces of lemon juice mixed with three ounces of olive oil and immediately drink 236 to 354ml of distilled water whenever you feel pain from the movement of your stones. The citric acid in lemon juice can dissolve calcium stones, and olive oil coats and lubricates them so they're easier to pass.
Put 60 drops of chanca piedra (break stone) extract in a glass of distilled water and drink it twice a day until you've used it up. Chanca piedra is a plant that gets its name from its ability to break down kidney stones.
Drink two tablespoons of organic cider vinegar mixed with two tablespoons of distilled water at least three times a day for best results. If you have trouble with the bitter taste, add some honey. Apple cider vinegar works by softening the stones so you can flush them out of your body.
