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.
[NAY] 12/15/2007: Susan from Dallas, USA: "I've had a kidney stone for over two weeks now. I read this information on-line and decided to try it since drinking large amounts of water has not helped it to pass. The pain has been absolutely unbearable and I have been taking upwards of 80 mg of codeine a day. I tried this remedy for two days and as I am used to the taste of Olive Oil, it did not taste bad for me but I was only able to keep it on my stomach for about 3 hours - (tried 4 times) before throwing it up. I don't know if that's the pain, the codeine or what, but the pain was never releived and the kidney stone is still there a week after trying this. I've tried the Apple Cider and drinking Lemon Juice with Hot Water also and no relief. This rememdy must be for small kidney stones and as I have a tendency to have large ones, this is not going to help it "slide out". I have calcium oxalyte stones and anything acidic will not help them to dissolve - mine is the most common type but this rememdy is for those that have the other three types of stones so for those of you with oxalyte stones - I'd say, don't waste your time. If anyone knows of anything for oxalyte stones, please let me know. I am currently trying (started yesterday) on Uriflow - we'll see how that works since I have no insurance."
[YEA] 12/14/2007: Russ from Abbotsford, BC: "After searching the internet for kidney stone remedies, I came across this Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Juice remedy. I had been dealing with a kidney stone for about a week and was getting impatient waiting for it to pass (I know some of you have been dealing with kidney stones alot longer!) I have to admit I was quite skeptical of the remedy, but certainly willing to try anything that might help. I drank the mixture at 10:00 in the evening, and drank lots of water before bed. At noon the next day I passed the stone without pain. I was so excited it basically brought me to tears. If I ever have to deal with another kidney stone, this remedy will definitely be the first one tried."
[YEA] 12/13/2007: Sadik Khan from Porbandar, India: "First of all, I am sorry for being a little late to update you guys. So, I had the kidney stone problem and the doctor advised me for immediate operation. The stone was 7.2mm and got stuck in the uterus (I hope this is what it was, I just forgot by now, thanks to Earth Clinic Community). This was in march 2007. I had undergone the operation and the problem got sorted out, for a while. All of sudden the stone re-emerged (may be reformed) within one month. I was so disappointed and had no liking going for another round at the doctors operation table. And then I found yoursite, earth clinic. I tried the above mentioned remedy. I was quite hopefull that it will dissolve the stone. But nothing noticiable happened during the first time. So I thought of trying it again on weekend. This time, I could feel the difference. The stone started to move. I went to office and had to come home in the middle of severe pain. I took the pain killer for the day and went to sleep. The next morning, to my surprise, I had passed the stone. I am so glad, thanks to everybody. Though I am a software enginee, I had never believed internet so much before, but I can assure you now, I am a real person who had gone through the pain all the time and I am very happy now."
[YEA] 12/12/2007: kasibhatta srishanth from visakhapatnam, india: "hi fellas, i am glad to say that i have used oilve oil and lomon juice remedy' which worked well in my case, also i had used corn silk tea earlier to (oliveoil+lomonjuice ) remedy, both worked for me i used a herbal drug name d cystone by himalaya drug company from india which also helped me to pass my kidney stones.with cystone i have passed out a stone in the size of 11mm. also i have tried fennel seeds (saunf) tea to dissolve and pass out my kidneystones. all the above remedies worked for me and am sure will work for many people."
[NAY] 12/11/2007: James from London, UK: "I note that most of the naysayers gave up after trying the remedy just once or twice or only once a day or every other day, whereas most of those who were successful tried it several times a day initially. I also note that the naysayers mostly tried the smaller 2 ounce dosage and a good few complained about the taste, whereas the yeasayers were less put off by the taste and many who tried the 2 ounce dosage went on to try the 3 ounce one (something most of the naysayers apparently failed to do).
I also note that several of the naysayers had adverse reactions to the remedy, suggesting that their insides were in a worse state than others, and perhaps too acidic for the remedy to work quickly.
The naysayers were also more skepticla on the whole. Many had stuck stones. A couple or so conjectured that this might have been the reason the remedy didn't work. However there were also yeasayers who had stuck stones. One naysayer said a stone he had actually grew in size even though he had taken the remedy over a long period, suggesting that some other factor was at work that was nullifying the effect of the remedy. Was he also on medication, for example? What was his diet like? He doesn't say. I would suggest then that in general the naysayers did not try a large enough dose at sufficiently frequent intervals for a stuck stone or for stones forming in environments where they were growing and/or multiplying rapidly to be dissolved."
[NAY] 12/10/2007: Kelly from Toronto, Canada: "re Kidney Stones (Olive Oil & Lemon) -- So far, this is a "Nay" for me. I tried it for 2 days then went to just squeezing lemons into a large glass of water every couple of hours. The 3rd day spent drinking hot water with apple cider vinegar, to no avail. My stomach got so acidic I had to stop. I even drank a whole beer. And I HATE beer! ' I tend to have kidney pain for a couple of months before they try to pass so I'm due for an ER visit within the next week or so. Exact same thing happened last year - spent Xmas and NY in the hospital, finally having 2 surgically removed (1 in Jan and 1 in Feb, missing a couple of months of work). The problem is that I am going to Mexico in a week and am terrified to spend the trip in the hospital (or worse, have an attack on the plane!). Don't even know if there is a hospital near the resort. Maybe I did something wrong when I tried the remedy or my type of stone is different than the success stories? My questions are: Should the remedy be done on an empty stomach? Should you rest or exercise? Is it just for stones already travelling? Mine are just sitting in my kidney with gradually increasing discomfort for over 3 mos and haven't yet attempted to leave. That's when the real fun begins! For the last week I can't sleep at night because the pain is getting worse. That's how I know it will be soon. I will try anything not to have to go through that agony EVER again! I was in ER so many times last year all the staff knew me by name and the only relief was morphine. Thank you for your time."Replies
06/02/2008: Robin from Chicago, Illinois replies: "When doing olive oil and lemon juice it would be a good idea to also do a heavy metal cleanse, take whey protein isolate everyday and do not use sugar in your diet while you are getting rid of stones. Sugar creates and feeds stones, also while taking no sugar take the herb Chanca piedra everyday and a lot of gallstones and kidney stones will come out with ease, when you flush."
[YEA] 12/07/2007: Jason from Geneva, Switzerland: "The olive oil and lemon juice remedy works. I had a kidney stone that would not pass for three+ months. Out of desperation I found the olive oil and lemon juice suggestion. I mixed 2 oz of both EVOO and Lemon Juice. I won't lie, it's gross to drink. I felt some movement, but nothing passed. The next morning I tried 3 oz of both the olive oil and lemon juice and after about three hours it passed. It really was unimaginable that this actually would work. No doubt that this will be my first option next time."
[YEA] 12/06/2007: Mont from Stockton, CA: "12/5/07 I went in for a third procedure in 20 years yesterday and was shocked to hear the urologist say there were no stones in my left ureter after I woke from the procedure. Three weeks ago we had looked at the CT scan and the four stones I had. Two in the right kidney and on the left side were two big stones stacked on each other above the bladder and the doctor said they would not pass, too big, must take them out. I have passed six stones without surgery before, so I remained hopeful waiting for surgery. But even after getting some relief from' herbal pills I had more pain than I could take, begging the E.R. to take me right then three different days. during the first consultation after the scan the urologist told me of a study at SF with lemon juice to acidify the urine and was having good results. I searched this site and made lemonade with a small amount of sugar and 6 lemons, then ate French bread soaked in olive oil. That night I must have dissolved the stones because my urine flow was back the next morning and I thought maybe the sharp edges have been smoothed but still had the stones. Little did I know that the stones would be gone when the doctor was to blast them with the laser yesterday. Kidney stones are the worst pain ever and with my family history, I was getting discouraged. Being in such agony I was sure I would suffer a heart attack one day. Now I have hopes for lemon juice. I drink juice from half a lemon and boiling water each morning, afternoon and night. It does not bother my stomach and even smoothed out my appetite. I have lost 60 lbs. this last year and now will try to cut out the peanut butter, cola, chocolate and other foods that on the list of things that produce my type of stones. I have a follow up appointment next week and will keep posting the progress on my other two small stones on the right side. With any luck they have exited my body also. I will have a urinalysis and hope that this natural remedy will be the answer to my prayers. Thank you Earth Clinic for providing information that inspired me to follow up on the doctors recommendation to drink the lemon juice three times a day."
[YEA] 12/04/2007: Pierre from Gatineau, Quebec, Canada: "Lemon juice and olive oil flushed out my 8mm. stone after weeks of constant pain. I was slightly skeptical but had nothing to lose. So I tried it following an ultrasound which determined the kidney stone was stuck at the bottom of my ureter. I squeezed 5 lemons mixed with 3 tbsps. of olive in around a quart of water. I drank half that evening and the other half the next day. The stone flushed out the second day-I was stunned at how quickly the remedy worked. All the pain is gone and I won't be needing surgery."
[YEA] 11/30/2007: Mel Sparks from Manteca, Ca: "I had a Stone start giving me excruciating pain this week. Although skeptical, I used "THE RECIPE" submitted by Rose of Wyoming and Cindi from North Carolina. (Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and water)I downed my first glass at 3 P.M. Thursday afternoon and by 9 A.M. Friday morning 18 hrs later the stone was passed thanks to your sharing of the info. It may not work for everyone but "The Recepie gets 100% in my book. Have a great day."
[YEA] 11/23/2007: Donnie from Louisville, KY: "re: Xtra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon Juice:This worked for my large, stuck stone. This is a Yea for me. And delightfully so. I was in the hospital four times in 2004 and had three procedures; two lithotripsies and one Laser device with the basket retrieval method. As you can imagine, I have been terrified of a recurrence of that BS!!! So, I made sure to make a good multivitamin and drink very few sodas.
Early this past summer I had some pain that was very bothersome but not something I had to go to the hospital. Not to play down the pain, but in 2004 I would get to the point where I would vomit and dry heave to no end and would end up in the ER. Yes, the drug Delotid is frigging awesome baby!!! Man, that stuff sorta saved my life. Took all pain away. So, I have been trying to avoid that stuff again.
Anyway, I have had symptoms off and on, but I didn't see a doctor about them. You either need surgery or you don't, you know?? I never found the pain meds to be very useful for kidney stones. I mean all the way to oxycotin: not applicable to this kind of pain. Well, it got bad enough that I HAD to see someone. So I did. CT showed two stones: one in the upper right quadrant of the right kidney, and one stuck in the right ureter above the bladder. Since I had had symptoms for months, the urologist figured that this stuck stone had been causing all my problems. The one in the kidney was 5mm, and I never heard what size the one was in the ureter. I figure it was pretty big. They wanted me to have a doctor use a cytoscope to snatch it out. I found this out right before going to Los Angeles for a seminar. I began taking Flomax, and spent the night in LA not sleeping and vomiting again, so I said no more Flomax. Get home and find this website, and figure anything is preferable to what I knew I would be facing. So, Wednesday evening I took one dose of stuff: 2 ounces Olive Oil, and two ounces of fresh lemon juice. And wait.
Went to the movies Thanksgiving night. Went to the bathroom prior to the movie and it felt "weird". Really weird. I had to go after the movie, and I felt something happening, a very odd sensation, and out comes a frigging humongous stone. Good gawd!!! It was bigger around than a pea, and sort of longer too. BUT, although it felt odd, it really did not hurt. It went into the urinal and I couldn't snatch it out. If it was a toiled bowl, public or not, I would have reached in and got it. Sort of like a trophy, eh? I feel deprived.
Now I will use the lemon juice to try to dissolve the one in the kidney, and pray. Monday I will call the doctor's office and see how big that stone was. And my stones are always the calcium ones, the most common kind. I figure I will get the magnesium and zinc supplement and see about the baking soda too. Thanks for the information guys."
[YEA] 11/21/2007: Celia from Chicago, IL: "I've gone through the pain of kidney stones three times, twice followed by lithotrypsy. I promised myself that if it happened again I would do my best to stay away from the hospital. Not having health insurance this time sealed the deal. I felt symptoms at about 4pm. Drank water and fullness intensified. I added lemon. Then I read this site and used 2oz each of organic lemon juices (from a lemon) and olive oil. I walked around my apartment and jogged in place. Pain intensified and I felt a little nausea. Took Ibuprofen and almost immediately vomited. I felt better after that, continued sipping water and water with lemon. The stone passed at 9:30pm - a few minutes ago. It was about 7x2mm with lots of sandy bits. I don't know if there is anything behind it, but my urine is flowing normally, no blood, and no pain. On this Thanksgiving eve, I thank you all so much!"
[YEA] 11/21/2007: Grace from Plantersville, TeXas: "Okay 2 weeks ago tomorrow I woke up in the middle of the night to horrible pain in my left side, under my rib cage. I thought I was dying, only to be rushed by an ambulance to the ER. 4 hours and 8 thousand dollars later they determined I had a 5.7 MM Kidney stone that had left the kidney and was heading to the bladder. The pain for the next 3-4 days was horrible. But I got on this site and read about the Olive Oil/Lemmon Juice thing... So here is my story. For the past 3 years I have drank about a gallon of water per day. I don't drink carbonated drinks, but about 2 months ago I was hooked on RedBull. So I am not sure what caused it. To ease the initial pain I took lots of pain pills and motrin. At first there was lots of nausea and vomiting from the stone. After I got on this site and read I tried the olive oil and lemon juice. 2.oz of each... NOTHING... 24 hour later I did it again. ... then again and again. 4 times. Then I was advised to get in the bathtub and drink beer. So I tried that. NOTHING...So I started thinking about the lemmon juice and olive oil. I think that the cure only works after the stone has made it to the bladder.
Because Last NIGHT in my final desparation I drank 4 oz of Virgin Olive Oil and 4 oz of Ice cold Lemon mixed and this morning at 5:00 am it passed.
I honestly feel like a new person. The 4 prior olive oil and lemon juices did ease the pain, a bit, but I was drinking a gallon of water a day, a 1/2 gallon of Cranberry Juice and taking cranberry pills and AZO...the motrin and the pain pills~ but I think that the larger concaution of lemon juice and olive oil last night (followed by 2 bottles of water)pushed it from the Bladder out.
Once it was in the Bladder... like 4 days ago... I only felt like I had to pee all the time... there was no deadly pain like it was when it left the kidney initially.
[YEA] 11/17/2007: Tony from San diego, California: "Out of desperation I looked on the internet today to seek home remedies. I'm not a huge believer of these things but kidney stones make you try anything to get rid of them. I found this page at 9 am and tried the lemon and olive oil recipe. Then at 5pm I took another doze. I did feel the stone move down in my bladder as the pain gotten sharper. Arpund 10 pm the same day the stone came out. About 6 mm wide. Pretty big. This is only my experience and I wanted to share with others. I have been drinking cranberry juice the last 2 days and also taking flomax.Thanks to everyone who took their time to post on this page."
[YEA] 11/08/2007: Terry from Sevierville, Tennessee: "I have been pagued with kidney stones since the age of 17. I am now 43 and had to have a stone removed last week using a cystoscope. The stone was lodged about an inch from my bladder and would not pass. I went to my doctor and told him I was also having pain in the opposite kidney, but he said the CT was clear on the other side and that it could be "referred" pain. By the way, I have a great doctor and trust him completely. Yesterday I found this website and thought what the heck...it's all natural and can't hurt. Since I have not had any pain in the last couple of days and had one removed last week I thought I would try it and see how it tasted. The taste was horrible, but quickly went away and I thought if it worked it would be well worth it. This morning I went to the bathroom (no pain) and heard the familiar "clink" of a stone hitting the porcelian. I was amazed! I really didn't think I had another stone since the doctor said the left side was clear. This was a relatively small stone ( 1mm wide by 3 mm long....looked like a comet). Nevertheless, I am sold on the olive oil and lemon juice. Additionally, I did not follow the remedy with a lot of water, but rather some green tea...I've tried everything). I'm sold! I will drink it once a month or so from now on!"Replies
11/09/2007: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "To Terry from Sevierville Tn. All kidney stones don't show on Xray - I think one that doesn't, is uric acid stones. Did you know that there is a non-prescritption medicine for kidney stones - it's composed of magnesium oxide and vitamin B6 - called Beelith tablets. You'll have to ask the pharmacist for them be-cause I've never seen them out of the shelf in any pharmacy."
11/15/2007: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "To Terry from Sevierville, Tn. (ll/08/07)' Oops - forgot to warn you to ride herd on your blood pressure if you are on meds to lower it because Beelith tables (l twice a day) will lower blood pressure also."
