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] There are three ingredients used in this home remedy. Lemon juice to dissolve the stone, Olive oil to help the smaller stone move along and get flushed our, and cayenne pepper to heal the scratches on the tissues. The C pepper is very important. A few sprinkles of a good grade, organic, finely ground. I do a cup of each liquid, with the C pepper, three times a day, for a couple days, or until the pain goes away.
