Olive Oil and Lemon Juice for Kidney Stones
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Olive Oil - 2 Oz
- Fresh Lemon Juice - 2 Oz
- Large Glass of Water (or 2)
This is an extremely popular remedy for kidney stones! Mix together two ounces each of freshly squeezed lemon juice and olive oil. Drink this (not nearly as bad as you think) and follow it up with plenty of water. You can repeat this 2-3 times a day until the stones pass, which often happens within 1-3 days.
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 06/06/2009: S. Lewis from Oakley, CA: "Hi- I'd like to give a "Yeah" on this 2 oz. lemon juice and 2 oz.olive oil thing with a severe caution and possible correction. I was past 48 hours of a horrible kidney stone case and so I found this home remedy on the 3rd evening. As soon as I mixed 4 ounce mixture and drank it I felt really 'full'. Later it became kind of gaseous and horrible and after 1 or 1 1/2 hrs I deliberately 'expelled' the rest of this heavy mixture. The "Yeah" part is that the next morning when I woke up the kidney stone was gone, thank goodness!! But, I was left with 2 days of the worst stomach you could possibly imagine and 'expelled' more of this heavy mixture here and there on it's own. So how about backing off to 1 or 2 TBS of each, instead of oz? Please be careful as the remedy was just about as bad as the condition and I felt it my deed to warn you as I wouldn't wish as stomach ache like this on my worst enemy, if I had one!"
06/04/2009: Nova from Elk Grove, CA: "Have had terrible pain in back for 3 months - even went to ER one night but since I was having gastritis/reflux problems they didn't bother to look at my kidneys. Fast forward 3 months and went to Dr for what I believed was a urinary tract infection. Dr did an ultra sound and a CT scan. Sure enough 4 stones lit up. He told me to go home and drink as much water as possible and it would take 2 weeks to pass them. Luckily I found this web site and began the olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon which I followed with a lot of water. Within 5 days I had delivered the stones with NO PAIN. After delivering them I took them out of the strainer and put them in a jar. I didn't think they were the stones because I expected them to be dark but they were an off white color. I stuck my finger in the jar and with my fingernail I pressed on one. It was soft!!! I thought, this can't be a stone - I've alway heard they are hard. Well, I left the lid off the jar and in the morning they were as hard as hard as a rock.
As a side light to this experience I have found that the burning in my stomach (gastritis) returned when I stopped the olive oil and lemon. I went back to taking it today and I'm not burning. I will see if it works tomorrow and the next day. Now I'm wondering if my stomach is not producing enough acid and the lemon juice is fixing that matter. Time will tell.
Thank you for this web site as my experience with my kidney stones was not painful. I would like to handle this gastritis with something as easy as lemon and olive oil. Right now my doctor prescribed a medication that I looked up and it does liver damage and is for gall stone relief (I don't even have my gall bladder!). Go figure!"
06/15/2009: Nova from Elk Grove, CA replies: "What I took to the doctor was not stones it was "organic matter" so I have to take back my "yea". It's been three weeks and all I am is waterlogged!"
06/15/2009: Nonni from Cleveland, OH replies: "Nova, whether you passed stones or what the doctor calls "organic matter" this is still a good sign. You definitely don't want sediment clogging up your kidneys. Do your back pains feel any better since passing this?"
[YEA] 05/20/2009: Jim from Calgary, Canada: "I'm probably the biggest skeptic in the world and when my wife found this website with the "lemon juice/olive oil" solution to dissolving kidney stones, I wasn't convinced. I followed her insistance and choked down the mixture and I am extremely happy I followed her advice.
I was diagnosed through CT scan and ultrasouncd to have a 6 mm stone in my bladder, that had been causing pain for five days. I was perscribed Demerol and Flomax and told there was nothing else to do but wait it out!!
After mixing 2 ounces of real lemon juice and 2 ounces of extra virgin olive oil, I drank that, followed by an eight ounce glass of water. I followed that over the next day with lemon drinks of 2 ounces of real lemon in 8 ounces of water.
Within 24 hours, I was able to pass the stone with no discomfort at all."
[YEA] 05/10/2009: Mark from Troutville, VA: "Amazing! This worked and worked quickly. I have had several stones in the past and this is the first thing that really worked. Drinking a lot of water or cranberry juice in the past did nothing but make more pain and pressure. This worked great...I took some every 2 hours or so and passed several stones. The only warning is not to use extra virgin olive oil...I ran out of the other and tried that. I couldn't hardly swallow it. So, be sure to use regular olive oil."Replies
09/12/2010: Thela Juan from Mandaluyong, Phil replies: "Just been reading these posts for the last couple of days and I am very happy to hear that there is a cure or remedy for kidney stone. I had an attack 2 weeks ago and it was so painful that I needed to be rushed at the ER. Found out that I have some on my right kidneys and one on my left the size 1. 5cm. I was advised that I needed to have a shock wave done, well before I do I want to try this first and I hope it really works, so far I have downed 2oz of lemon and oil. I feel something tingly on my right kidney, I just hope that the big stone can pass. I sure want to save a lot of money. I will update you guys if it works."
04/29/2009: MJK from Grand Rapids, MI: "I was just told that I have 6 stones in my right kidney and 7 in my left. Some I possible could pass no problem so the doctor say but I have one extra large one in each kidney. I am looking for something thing that will help me dissolve them verses help me pass them. I have no pain at this time. I am afraid if I use some of the ideas on the website that they will start to move. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear."Replies
04/30/2009: Rick from Montreal, Quebec, Canada replies: "Kidney Stones. You might want to consider an Edgar Cayce based remedy. Grind about 1 tablespoon of fresh organic celery seeds, (if you can't get organic you can use regular supermarket seeds) in a coffee grinder...just a few short blasts to, preferably, not creat heat. Steep this in 16 oz of water. You could try this Celery Seed tea once a day. It might help."
[YEA] 04/12/2009: Mary from San Jose, CA: "Big Yay, here :)
On 4/8/09 my husband began experiencing pain on his left side, the whole family had colds,so I didn't pay much attention to him. It was severe on 4/9/09 and I told him to go to the Doctor's, but like many men would not. On 4/10/09 he was convinced he was dying, but still refused to go to the doctor...thankfully I was feeling better and started an internet search. After having him describe the pain and asking him questions, I felt pretty confident it was kidney stones. I had to practically force the mixture (2 oz of lemon juice and 2 oz EVOO, mixed in some lemonade) down him. He took the mixture at 6:00 PM, I had him drink 2 big glasses of water, 1 glass of apple juice and 1 glass of cranberry juice,by 9:00 PM he was feeling significant relief, I gave him 2 oz of lemon juice in another glass of lemonade and he went to sleep. When he woke the next morning, 4/11/09, he was not back to 100%, but he was much improved. I gave him one more 2 oz lemon juice and 2 oz EVOO, by 10:00 he was laughing and joking. He sent me on my way to go do some errands...I came home to a sparkling clean house (he never cleans)! He said, he just felt so amazing and renewed he started cleaning and kept going. During the day he continued to drink water, apple juice and cranberry juice. Today, 4/12/09, he did one more juive/EVOO to be sure, but says he feels back to normal.
He never saw a stone pass, but did say yesterday he could feel it moving, so not sure if still needs to pass or it just dissolved, but you have 2 more strong believers here...thanks so much for this site :)"
[YEA] 04/06/2009: Rachel from Terre Haute, Indiana: "I tried the highly recommended lemon juice and olive oil concoction for my calcium oxilate stones and it worked like a charm. I am 30 and have dealt with stones since the age of 17.A few days ago, I got that all too familiar feeling in my lower back and I knew what was coming. At midnight that night I mixed 2 ounces of each and guzzled it. About 30 minutes later I felt sick to my stomach and went to bed. The next day I had no more back pain (or nausea) and passed my stone with NO pain! As a matter of fact, I wouldn't have even known it came out if I hadn't seen it in the toilet. This worked wonders for me and I hope it helps other kidney stone victims as well. Good luck to all!"
[YEA] 04/05/2009: Terry from Cuba, NM: "I have had many painful kidney stone episodes. Now I have one in my right kidney that is 15mm by 25 mm by who knows how deep, four 3-4 mm in my left. I'm scheduled for surgery on May 13th, guess they gave me so long so I could try this remedy! I just took my lemons, 3 fresh squeezed and two Tablespoons olive oil. Wish me luck!"Replies
08/22/2009: Chili from Cadillac, Mi, 49601 replies: "To the person who had a 25mm stone in May and was going to try olive oil and lemon juice... did it work????????
I thought mine were big! I have one 8x11mm and one 7mm and several that are 3mm to 5mm. I am wondering if ones that size can possibly be dissolved? I am scheduled for lithotripsey in 6 days, and I'd love to NOT have it, and instead take care of the stones naturally.
Does anyone have any experience with stones that big being dissolved or passed naturally??? Thank you!"
[YEA] 03/28/2009: Peter from Victoria, BC, Canada: "Olive oil and lemon juice cured my kidney stone. I have had five stones before and last one was over two years ago. Have been getting ultrasounds every six months and in December one reported a 6mm stone at the exit of the right kidney. Urologist said it was not in a good position to do EWSL at that size and suggested surgery. I said maybe it will pass - he didn't think so - or maybe it will get big enough to do EWSL. I suggested a CT scan to get a more accurate picture in a couple of months, which he agreed to. For the next two months I did the 2oz olive oil + 2oz lemon juice a couple of times a week. Never had any pain, never had any blood in urine, so assumed the stone was still there. CT scan in February - stone was gone. Urologist was very surprised. I use a small electric stirrer to blend the olive oil and lemon juice together, helps with the taste."
[YEA] 03/19/2009: Rob from Greenville, SC: "My gf had stones. She was in lots of pain and the dr prescribed loritabs 10. They had discussed surgery. We found your site and decided to try it. We used 2 oz olive oil and 2 oz of lemon juice. She wasn't happy about the taste, but was in so much pain, she drank it. After 1 'cocktail', she said she felt something moving. She passed a stone estimated 2 mm about 5 hours later. We continued this for a total of 3 cocktails and finally passed the last stone slightly larger than the last, approx 3 mm. We don't have scientific proof this works, but she recommends this to her friends and family now. We believe in this and hope others research alternatives to pain and surgery."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 03/16/2009: Bill from Staten Island, NY: "Lemon Juice & Olive Oil Remedy- I had read some weeks ago about this remedy. I was searching because I had verified the fact( w/ CT scan) that I had FIVE stones in my right kidney all about 3mm in size. This is my fourth episode with stones over about 15 years, two years ago having a stone about 1/2 inch. It required laser Litroscopy treatment and follow-up. I liked what I had read on this site and decided to give it a try. Over the course of eight days (taking 2oz.oil & 2oz.lemon juice) once each day, I am convinced I had passed at least one and maybe two stones. ( just going by the complete abscence of pain). After what I believe was a positive result, I am trying again to remove the remaining stones if possible. With that, I had taken a "cocktail" yesterday, and late in the afternoon at work I started having significant pain in the typical back area, radiating around front and low into the abdomen. I started taking a volume of water until I could get home for more oil and lemon juice. Here I sit and hope that I will pass this stone sometime between now and tomorrow. The pain associated with these stones has been something I would call "manageable". They are only 3mm size, and I am assuming the oil and juice might be reducing them thus cutting the pain quite a bit. I can remember the pain, nausea and dizziness associated with these things in the past. I am wondering though what the effect of ingesting all this oil and lemon juice might do? I'd be interested in anyone having an opinion on that! Thanks and good luck."
[YEA] 03/10/2009: Ginger from Niles, IL: "I was scheduled for a lithotripsy so I figured I would try the lemon juice and olive oil treatment. I did this a few days sometimes only once a day. The day of my procedure they only spotted 2 very tiny stones on the opposite side. The one I had (4mm) on the left side did not show up. So I believe that one dissolved."Replies
03/11/2009: Nicole from Geneva, Switzerland replies: "Try boiling two bunches of Parsley in a litre of water and have it as a tea or just cold during the day. It breaks down kidney stones, my grandmother was to go for surgery to get hers removed and she got rid of them with parsley within a week! Good luck"
[YEA] 03/08/2009: Stan from Adelaide, South Australia: "I am a person who was desperate as well, I had to have a week off work, when the attack came on. I was at home and quickly drove to the E.R just in time, with my wife, there I Vomited in the restroom right next to the waiting room. After hearing this for nearly 5 minutes, the Admin staff realized that it was serious and admitted me to intensive care. I was there for a whole day, on a Morphine drip and injections. After the pain had finally gone they told me to return for another scan.(I had the thing for nearly five days and its one of the most painful experiences Ive ever had,) In that time it returned nearly every night at 4.am, until I took some medication for it. It was recorded by Ultrasound as an 8mm calculus calcium based stone, stuck in the left kidney. They told me this will eventually lead to a urologist to contact me and make an appointment to work out an operating procedure. To cut a long story short, I had very little time to do something, quickly, in desperation I scurried through the web like there was no tomorrow, and I found the money grabbers etc, but then came upon your site, the words lemon etc suddenly appeared in front of me. After reading the testimonials, I thought why not give it a go, nothing could be worse than this even if spewing a few hours, I didn't care.
I didn't have lemons, so I made some, using citric acid, put about quarter teaspoon in a small glass, with warm to hot water when nearly full, (holds about half can of coke) then for taste put about a tablespoon of Apple cider vinegar and honey, its easy to get from most supermarkets or health places.
I also decided to include the olive oil, first only a spoon full to see if I was ready to vomit, but nothing so I drank more, then sipped on the tonic I had made.
Then just sat in front of the internet reading the testimonials from this site, and beginning to feel good from what I was reading and the thngs people were saying, in fact I found the time going quickly, I was also in the most excruciating pain while doing this, because the medication I was using wasn't working now.
After the first hour of drinking this concoction I had no appetite at all, I think I had near ten to 15 glasses, taking small sips very slowly letting it digest in the stomach.
four hours later I was still feeling the sharp pains associated with this demon. I was disappointed because nothing had happened and still feeling that wretched pain.
But amazingly after this my urine changed color from a dark yellow to almost white clear, so in all I went to the rest room about two dozen times, this went on for nearly half the day till night fall, finally after checking again in a container I found some little tiny dots at the bottom like white bits, I thought, the thing is finally gone, and within an hour or so the pain did leave as well, maybe after such a battering the kidney was just trying to heal itself, there was no stone but some cloudy residue.
If anyone has a similar type experience, they would be crazy to have it operated on. And not try a home remedy first.
I'm still waiting for the appointment,from the Hospital, so they can tell me its gone.
CHEERS to a useful site, I am definitely a Believer Now"
EC: Thank you for your feedback, Stan! Just to clarify -- did you use citric acid in place of lemons?
03/09/2009: Stan from Adelaide, S,A replies: "In reply to your question, (yes I used citric acid instead of lemons), because driving to a supermarket in this condition would have been very dangerous, might have crashed or passed out. However I was lucky enough to have a small 500ml bottle of Apple cider Vinegar and Honey bought about three weeks ago.
Still pain free and Stone free..... Many thanks"
EC: Thank you for clarifying!
[YEA] 03/08/2009: Julia from Pittsburgh, PA: "I have had kidney stones about 5 times. They are horrible and I was hospitalized for them the first time I had them all they did was put me on pain killers. They worked to dull the pain but did not make them go away. I use the 2 ounces of olive oil and 2 ounces of fresh lemon juice mixed together and drink it down when I first feel them coming on. It worked, I have heard that the acidity in the lemon juice breaks the stones down and the olive oil helps them pass through your urethra easier. When you don't have health insurance you feel like you are helpless and will try any inexpensive remedy, and this worked for me. So give it a try you have nothing to lose but you kidney stones!"
