What Are Kidney Stones?
Kidney Stones are crystal aggregations of dissolved minerals in urine that usually form inside the kidneys or the bladder, and can cause a lot of pain when passing them. Symptoms of kidney stones are unfortunately quite painful, though they may not cause any symptoms at all until they start causing pain: pain below the ribs or back, pain in the lower abdomen and groin, pain while urinating, cloudy or strong smelling urine that's colored red or brown, frequent urges to urinate, and nausea.
Fortunately, we have received an overwhelming response from our readers on our kidney stone remedies' page for the combination of lemon juice and olive oil, making it our most popular cure for kidney stones at almost 300 yeas.
Instructions for the Lemon Juice and Olive Oil Kidney Stone Treatment Home Remedy:
Mix together two ounces of freshly squeezed lemon juice with two ounces of olive oil and drink it all. Follow with plenty of water. Repeat this natural remedy treatment two to three times a day until the stones are passed (can occur anywhere from 1-3 days).

[YEA] 3 months ago I felt this worst pain in my life, I came to know that I have several kidney stones from both of my kidneys. Based on my ultrasound result I have 8 stones with (4/8 are 7-8mm in size). The doctor prescribed me a medicine but since I was so worried, I did a research and tried ACV (little sip daily) and lemon juice with water as my normal intake of water everyday. I also tried the lemon juice with olive oil (2oz, 2x a day) for 2 weeks, I don't know but I believe it worked. I passed a stone after a week but I still continued to drink the medicine and the mixture. A month ago, I went back to the doctor since I was feeling some side effects, I am not sure if it was from the medicine or from the mixture. Before the the doctor prescribed me another medicine (herbal - cystone), I did the ultrasound first to see if there was a development, I was surprised, my kidney stones are gone (not literally gone, from 8 stone to 2 stones left). The large stones are gone. I know it worked (the mixture).
PS: You may experience heartburn and acid reflux from taking these mixtures but its worth a try. Good luck people! :)
I am a mariner. Before going on ship I had to get the medical done so I went for the ultra sound and then only I came to know that there is a 6x4 mm stone at the entrance of the bladder and one 2x2 mm stone in the right kidney. There is no pain at all. I drank apple juice for one day and than lemon juice and olive oil treatment for 3 days and having one leaf of stonebreaker plant also but still no luck. No change in the size or position of the stones after one week. Can anyone suggest for how long shall I continue this treatment before I go for the operation and which is the best method to get the stone removed?
