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).

I have recently been diagnosed with a 12mmx10mm kidney stone. I am scheduled for a lipotripsy on September 4. I have been drinking lemon juice this past week in hopes of dissolving the stone before I have this procedure done next week. I'm nervous about adding the olive oil as I know my kidney stone is too big to pass and I don't want the stone to move. Has anyone had a stone as large as mine and successful at dissolving it? How many days does this take? Any informatin is greatly appreciated.
