I have hyperparathyroidism and had excruciating painful kidney stones. I did some research and I put one heaping tablespoon of marshmallow root (dried) in a mug with room temperature filtered water and let it infuse for 3 hours. I strain it and I then slightly warm it in a pan,( it tastes better if you warm it), not microwave. I was drinking it once every day until I was feeling better. I had a few more stones on and off but there was absolutely no pain! I drink it about once every month as a tonic. I haven't had any more stones. Hurray!(you can get marshmallow root at your health food store)
kidney stones prevention: you can help prevent kidney stones by bouncing on a mini trampoline and do what called kidney pounding where you tap the kidneys lighty while bouncing. this shakes stone loose early on. a minute a day is all you need. fred
I went to the hospital 3 weeks ago with horrible pain had no idea it was a 6mm kidney stone!! Had to spend the night and once home I really was not in pain. But I knew the stone was still there. An X-ray confirmed that. Was scheduled for surgery before Thanksgiving and found this site on lemon juice and olive oil. I cancelled my surgery and thought I would try it... Did it for 4 days and never saw a stone. Discouraged- saw another site and went to the Health Food Store and got pills called Stone Free. Took 5 pills two times a day till bottle was gone. Again never saw a stone. Scheduled surgery again for Dec 8th and went for another X-ray today and NO STONE !!! Doctor couldn't believe I never felt it pass. I don't know what cured it, the combination or one of the remedies... all I know is I will try it again, but hopefully I never will have to. God Bless and have faith....
THIS MESSAGE IS FOR A GUY NAMED TED THERE IS A WATER CALLED ALKALIZED WATER AND BELIEVE ME IT WORKS FOR MORE THAN JUST STONES, I HAD A PATIENT THAT DID NOT WANT TO LIVE BECAUSE SHE USED TO WALK 3 MILES A DAY AND WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN. I FILLED UP A 5 GAL OF ALKALIZED WATER AND SHE CALLED ME 4 DAYS LATER AND SAID SHE HAD NO PAIN AT ALL AND WALKED HER LIFE CHANGED ALL FROM THE WATER...OMNIMART.COM SELLS 999 WATER 1 OZ INTO DISTILLED 1 GALLON OF WATER....THIS WORKS I PROMISE
I WANT TO HELP OTHERS I WAS AT WORK AND HAD HORRIBLE BACK PAIN WHICH GOT WORSE AND WORSE. WAS RUSHED TO ER BY AMBULANCE -- I HAD KIDNEY STONES(4). I WENT TO A PLACE IN SAN FRANCISCISO...ALL DISSOLVED IN ONE MONTH. GO TO OMNIMART.COM AND ASK THEM TO SEND YOU A PRODUCT #308 AND THE WATER THAT GOES WITH IT #999. I ALSO USED LEMONE JUICE AND OLIVE OIL. IT TAKES ONE MONTH AND ALL GONE.....ALOE VERA FOR ULCERS, ACID REFLEX GONE..I HAVE BEEN A PAIN RELIEVER FOR 25 YRS HAVE GREAT SUCCESS EXCEPT FOR THE SURPRISE KIDNEY STONES....PLS HELP OTHERS.
Took Morton's Lite Salt in a little water during the heavy nausea phase (vomiting, cramps etc) of having the stone and the nausea was gone immediately. Stone passed a few hours later. Saved another trip to the ER! Have also used to assist calcified stones through the urethra. In my experience, better than potassium citrate alone (get runs with PC alone).

Some Edgar Cayce remedies for kidney stones I had mentioned to some clients with this condition miraculously worked!
1) Spirits of turpentine placed on back area with flannel cloth.
2) Watermelon seed tea.
When they returned for surgery, the stones were no longer there.
Check out Cayce's archives available through his organization or maybe online.
I passed a kidney stone in 1990. A couple of weeks ago, I had similar pain and was diagosed with a 5mm stone in my right kidney. The ER doctor had a urologist take a look and he prescribed Flomax. I took it for a week and saw him in his office, where he found two more small stones in my left kidney. The 5mm stone had moved down to what I guess is just above my bladder. From reading this site, that seems like a common spot for them to get stuck for a while. The doctor didn't want to talk about cause or prevention. He just wanted to go in through my penis, grab it and drag it out, and leave a stent behind.
I scheduled the surgery but I felt like I had been sold a used car that I didn't want. The next day I cancelled the surgery and started taking chanca piedra, olive oil and lemons, and apple cider vinegar and apple juice in addition to still continuing to take the Flomax and lots of water.
I just passed the stone - 6 days later. Thanks so much for this site. I guess they would say that the Flomax worked, but I think the other things helped.
The dosage was two droppers of Break Stone from Amazon.com (chanca piedra and a couple of other things) in 1 cup of water twice a day, 2 oz. olive oil and 2 oz. lemon juice twice a day, and 2 oz. apple cider vinegar with the mother and 4 oz. Apple juice twice a day. I meant to take them three times a day, but things got in the way. The lemons cause nasty diarrhea so I couldn't take it unless I was close to a bathroom. And I get heartburn at night if I'm not careful, so I didn't take anything harsh like apple cider vinegar just before bedtime.
Once again, thanks so much for this website. I joke that it's folk medicine, but when the professionals are dismissive they leave us no choice but to try to get advice from real people on sites like this one.
Now I just need to figure out what to take to get rid of the two on my left side and adjust my diet to prevent them from happening again. I should add that I had been following the paleo diet for two months and from what I read in "No More Kidney Stones" I think this high-protein, fruit and vegetable (high oxalate) diet caused them.
Just wanted to let you know how much we value this site!!
My husband has suffered from Kidney Stones off and on - and this spring the problem resurfaced. So I got on this site and started applying some of the suggestions. The suggestions that really worked for him were - the Apple Cider Vinegar, Chanca Piedra (Capsules), lots and lots of water, Warm Lemon Water first thing in the morning, Marshmallow tea, Magnesium Citrate Potassium and Vit. B6 (as recommended on bottle), lots of hot baths, hot water bottle, and a herb tea combination Corn Silk, Gold Coin Grass & Eucommia Bark. It works well - made a batch a day for awhile - all the diruetics you have to take potassium! Plus a kind Indian man told us the the benefits of Barley Water that is used in Ayervedic medicine and worked for him (the water from cooking plain Barley berries/pot barley I mixed it with honey and freshly sqeezed lemon- some people find beer helps - barley is used to make beer! ). The worst of the pain was about 5-7 days(after about 3 days it started to improve), however the Alleve from the Drug store helped a lot with hot baths and hot water bottle - however created problem with constipation - my husband is never constipated so the pressure from the constipation plus the pain from the Kidney Stones was bad. We looked into stool softeners - took too long - up to 3 days! So back to EarthClinic - decided to try- 1ounce of EV Coconut Oil, followed by 1 ounce of fresh lime juice, followed by 1 ounce of apple cider vinegar. It worked extremely well!! We constantly monitored him to make sure he was urinating and that he had no fever.
My husband kept urinating in a bottle - saw lots of dust in the bottom so we concluded that the Chanca Piedra was crushing the stone/stones. Time went by few weeks no pain just a bit of discomfort on left side. Then some discomfort on the right side!! Within three days 3 stones came out from the right side measuring 4mm, 5mm, and 6mm. Within a minimum of discomfort. The pain from the right completely disappeared. Still used protocol not as vigorous though. From the beginning of the ordeal till then it was about 3-4 weeks.
My husband had still little twinges on his left side - but concluded it was getting better all the time. The other day he started complaining of some pressure feeling in his bladder. Within a day or two the original "problem" popped out!! We were shocked!! It was a Kidney Stone measuring 12mmX5mm (looks like an olive or date pit)(from beginning to end of big stone was about 7-8weeks).
After the initial pain (which typically was bad) - the Aleve really helped. He only had some discomfort. Another thing that seemed to help is he bounced on a rebounder at times which seemed to help him. I messaged the bottoms of his feet where the kidney reflex is that helped too. At the beginning of this ordeal he did not really like Apple Cider Vinegar at all. At the end it is now his best friend! He found that when he was in pain a good swig of the Apple Cider Vinegar would make the pain disappear almost instantly. He carried it around with him at first like a baby bottle! He is now completely fine and has no residual anything!
From my research, the big problem for my husband was salted nuts - he LOVES cashews and peanuts and was drinking almond milk. These things along with ice cream are major triggers for him. Interesting point in talking to people lately who are sufferers of Kidney Stones - they are nut eaters who especially LOVE cashews! ?
Thanks so much for all your great posts they really helped us tremendously! I hope this helps someone else!
I am very grateful for all the posts that described treatments for aiding with the passing of a kidney stone. I believe they have guided my recovery this weekend.
Briefly, here is what happened. On Friday, my husband and I enjoyed a frozen pizza which must have been defrosted and refrozen, because about one hour after dinner, we both started having symptoms of food poisoning. My symptoms were more severe than my husband's and lasted past midnight. At about 1:30 am , we decided to go to the Emergency Room at the hospital because of my vomiting and sharp abdominal pains, which were as strong as any of the labor pains I experienced giving birth to our three daughters!
At the hospital, the doctor insisted on having a CAT scan done on me to confirm the presence of kidney stones. There was a 4 mm stone that had exited the left kidney. She had the nurse give me IV for pain and hydration and a capsule of Flomax "to enlarge the urethra. " I was dismissed at 6 a. M. with prescriptions for three medications (Tamsulosin (to enlarge the urethra), Hydrocodone (for pain), and Ondansetron (for nausea).
By 8 am I was online looking for alternative ways to handle the passing of a kidney stone and that is how I found this site. Thank Goodness! I began drinking large glasses of distilled water w/35 drops of Chanca Piedra every 4 hours; 4 large glasses of distilled water w/2 oz. of [organic] Apple Cider Vinegar, a large mug of horsetail tea; 3 oz. of organic pure lemon juice before bedtime on Saturday night.
I wrapped my lower back and abdomen w/a heating pad and kept it on low heat until this morning. Having recently read Ilchi Lee's Brain Wave Vibration, I tried to keep my body from staying too still for any length of time, since I did not want to inhibit the flow of chi. The Complete System of Self-Healing Internal Exercises, and did the "Kidney Exercise" as described on pages 151-152 (Rub the hands together vigorously to get the energy flowing in the palms and fingers; Place your palms on the small of your back. Keep your upper body tilted slightly forward. Feel the energy and heat flowing from your hands into your back and kidneys; Massage the small of your back by rubbing up and down and then in a circular motion across your back; Clench your fingers together to form two fists and hit the small of your back with the back of your hands. Pummel the area softly for a few seconds; repeat the rubbing and pummeling action for a total of three times).
I also did some FasterEFT (http://fastereft.com./), repeating "I release and let go of this kidney stone" as I tapped on the four places indicated by its creator, Robert Smith (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arZypEakfD4&feature=relmfu for a sample video).
I did not take ANY of the medications prescribed by the doctor.
This morning I passed the stone painlessly!
The doctor had instructed me to take the stone to a certain Urologist who will analyze it and give me medications which I may have to be on for the rest of my life to "prevent" further stones from developing. But, given that the doctor told me not to be concerned about the radiation exposure from the CAT scan because of my age (66), I can skip the Urologist appointment and the analyses (it's never just one lab test, and the bills keep coming for years, don't they?).
I will drink a daily dose of ACV!
So my contractions for a kidney stone started 3 years ago in the middle of turkey day dinner. One ambulance and thousands of dollars later I gave birth to a 2mm stone.
Started feeling the same symptoms this November, so I researched how to "remedy" situation naturally. The Lemon juice/olive oil helped a lot, and right away. A week passed, and the symptoms of pain etc. were back. I then added Castor oil packs to my routine. Again, it helped right away... Then the symptoms returned. I then went to Vitamin Cottage and bought the ONLY kidney stone remedy they had available. The symptoms went away immediately and have not returned. Three weeks out and feeling grateful.
Starting on 1/1/10 I drank 2 oz of lemon juice w. 2 oz extra virgin olive oil 2 times per day for 3 days in a row...it relieved the symptoms of a 4 mm kidney stone stuck in my urethra. I also drank alot of lemon juice in water for 9 days...I passed the kidney stone painlessly that looked about the size of 3/4 of a grain of rice on the morning of the ninth day.
I also supplemented my diet with B6 complex and magnesium as I had read that a body lacking in these things creates kidney stones. I will continue to use alot of lemon juice in my water and drink watered down lemonade as I still have 3 more stones to pass.
I would also like to add that I drank alka-seltzer at times when I felt the lemon juice was wearing off and the urgency to urinate came back as that would offer some releif. Be sure when drinking alot of water to give your body enough salt because I did have a problem with ear ringing which I attributed to not enough salt.
I also quit drinking coffee, all sweets and dairy products during this cleansing process. I ate just oatmeal w.molasses & banana for breakfast, homemade & canned soups for lunch & dinner, oranges & apples.
I started the olive oil/lemon juice on Tues. Started using caster oil pack with a heating pad over the lower abdomen last night. Also watermelon seed tea....2 cups worth. After an hour I was able to urinate freely. Today was terrible. Had the burning sensation in the penis and urge to urinate all day long. After I got home from work it was almost unbearable. I was convinced I was blocked up and may have to go to the hospital. I drank 2 cups of watermelon seed tea and put the oil pack on. About an hour later the burning in my penis became quite uncomfortable, became totally excruciating for about 5 seconds, then completely vanished. The stone is now in my bladder! What a relief! Be sure the caster oil is cold pressed and cold processed.
