Found out I had a small stone in each kidney 1 1/2 weeks ago (4-5mm). I 've had them before over the last 10 years or so... even to the point of 3 lithotripsies. It seems that each time I have a stone I look online to see if there is anything new. I've fallen for a couple of miracle treatments that supposedly "DISSOLVE STONES INSTANTLY"!. I prefer using a natural means of dealing with them, all in an effort to avoid another lithtripsy (or worse). I hear so many conflicting remedies, and am hoping to someday find the one that works for me. My doctor wants me back in for an x-ray in about 3 weeks or so to see what and where. I decided to try the lemon juice/olive oil (only have evoo right now) and can't say that there's been any change yet. I have some pain and darkened urine at times, but... I plan to stay with it at least until the doctor's visit. I'm also doing a mixture of unfiltered organic apple juice/hydrangea root, marchmallow root, ginger root, uva ursa, which I drink about a cup of 4 times a day (along with a lot of water). Seems to make me feel better and definitely keeps urine flowing . Last night before bed I gulped down about 2 ounces each freshly squeezed lemon juice/evoo and this morning I woke up not feeling that great. Strained my urine and found what looked like mucous of some kind, not a stone?! I was wondering if anyone has experienced this and what it might be.
