Olive Oil and Lemon Juice for Kidney Stones

Aug 10, 2016


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 was diagnosed with a 3mm kidney stone mid-June when I experienced really bad flank pain on my right side. Found out it was in my right ureter. they just gave me pain meds & antibiotics and said drink plenty of fluids. I had blood in my urine and eventually the pain just stopped. I never caught a stone through the strainer so I thought maybe it passed without me knowing. Met with a urologist and did an xray and they said no stone was present. then on to J uly 18th -- I experience these really bad UTI - like symptoms. urgency to urinate and burning/stinging pain. got lab work and was placed on antibiotics. finished the 7 day treatment and made another appt to see my urologist because the meds didn't do anything and I just knew it wasn't a UTI. I begged for another ct-scan and what do you know... stone is still there.. and now its stuck in my bladder which is causing spams (therefore the urgency/burning feeling) and he said, if you really can't handle the frustration and discomfort anymore, we can do surgery.

So they scheduled me for surgery this coming Tuesday... but I was really trying to avoid that and thats when I came across this olive oil/lemon juice concoction. I started it yesterday morning (7/27) and did 3 shots of it through out the day (bfast/lunch/dinner) and when I woke up this morning (7/28) to use the restroom... BAM! It's at the bottom of the toilet bowl.

Why didn't I just do this the day I found out I first had kidney stones?? I was skeptical too... thinking 'really? ur gonna make me drink olive oil?' ... but I'd say it definitely worked. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! No more surgery for me! :)

I have been to the ER four times over the last nine years with some serious kidney stone pain. Similar to many other posts, I was treated with lots of pain killers, and eventually sent home with more meds, and told to drink plenty of fluids. My latest episode started the morning of July 4th, and I stayed in bed all day with what I thought was a stomach ache. The following Saturday night I started feeling very poorly, and knew I had to get to the ER before the pain became unbearable. I told the ER doctor I thought I had a kidney stone, but I was not yet doubled over in pain, and he said "you don't look like you have a kidney stone! " I said "trust me, Doc" and sure enough, the CAT scan confirmed another stone. After being released with more pain killers and orders to keep hydrated, I came home and found your website the following day.

I started the lemon juice and olive oil treatment two times per day for three days, then once per day for two days. I was straining my urine with no visible results, and assumed the treatment was having no effect. Tonight (July 20th) I had the urge to urinate before dinner, but could only manage a dribble. After dinner, I felt a mild discomfort in my groin, and easily passed a large, fairly round stone with no serious pain.

I have a follow up appointment with urology, and will post again with an update. I believe the lemon juice and olive oil did the trick for me! Thanks for helping find a natural, pain free cure!

My son was in so much pain that he could barely walk. He didn't want to miss work and didn't want to go to the hospital where in the past they had given him a shot of morphine and pain pills and sent him home. I looked up natural remedies for kidney stones.

I found a couple sites about Lemon Juice and Olive Oil.

Every time my son had an episode and went to the hospital they'd just give him morphine and send him home with a bottle of pain pills until he could pass the stone.
Once I read about lemon juice and olive oil remedy he has used it at the slightest ting of pain. I mix doses in the smaller brownish pills bottles 2 TBS lemon juice (have also used Real Lemon and 2 TBS Olive Oil. It fits exactly with room to shake for mixing.
Shake well and take one 1st thing in the morning, lunch, supper and at bed time. For as fast as the bad pain decreases or stops, I think that the olive oil sticks to the sharp edges on the stone so it slides around and then it doesn't scratch the inside of the kidney.

My son says it tastes terrible and he'll never take it again but as soon as he gets one little kidney pain he asks me to make up a batch for him.

I've had several small calcium oxalate stones (3-5 mm) since the early 1990s. Fortunately, I've never required medical intervention. Last Thursday I developed the telltale symptoms. I learned years ago when an attack begins, to immediately drink lots of water and if available, a lengthy hot shower on my back where the pain is. The hot shower dilates blood vessels, relaxes smooth muscle to assist in the passage of the stone. While the water and hot shower helped this time, I was unable to pass the stone until today. Since it's Memorial Day, my chances of obtaining medical relief were nil so I started searching for a home remedy. I ran across the oil and lemon juice treatment. I must admit, as a scientist, I was skeptical. Olive oil is not going lubricate your urinary tract and the lemon juice may help dissolve certain kinds of stones. I figured, what the heck, anything is worth a try.

Within an hour, the pain subsided and I think the stone has passed to my bladder. The trick now will be to drink enough water to flush the stone through my bladder. The trick will be to align the stone with my urethral opening and voila, the stone will pop out without much difficulty. It may be a coincidence that the OO and lemon juice seems to work, but I'm a happy camper right now. If you're suffering, it's worth a shot.

IT WORKS! I literally just passed a 3mm stone 5 minutes ago. Wow. After that first wave of nausea and pain, the worst pain I got was noticeable but not crippling and that was only two times on just one day. After that, virtually nothing. No pain, no nausea. I never went to the emergency room or needed medication. My CT Scan showed the stone in my ureter and doc said try to let it pass, if not then lithotripsy. I actually never saw the doc. We did it all by email. Modern times.

For the remedy I was not very scientific. But I drank the juice of one lemon plus an ounce of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) almost every night. I also drank the juice of 1/2 lemon plus approx 2 TBsp of ACV 5 or 6 times each day. I bought a bottle of Chanca Piedra and would mix some in water or beer - usually one dropper full 2 or 3 times per day.

I highly recommend anyone with Kidney Stones try this! This is the real deal.

Lemon juice and olive oil for kidney stones definitely works- took my husband to the ER they gave him morphine sent him home with prescription for oxycodone - he had to take two at a time to manage the pain- meds were running out and I found this website, thank God.

2oz of lemon juice with 2 oz of olive oil did the trick. Took one dose at night and the other at 10am next morning -went 24hrs without pain. Well, it wore off and he was hurting- gave him the mixture again and a dose of oxycodone- he went thru the night with no pain and still no pain.

So it works but it will wear off so you have to keep taking it.

A little over a year ago I started having waves of significant (but not blinding) pain, usually lasting 30-40 mins on my left side near the kidney. No visible blood in my urine. I went to a urologist took a CT scan and there was a 4 mm stone stuck in the kidney near the ureter. But it would not descend. Two months later I had shock wave lithotripsy and peed out the broken stone pieces. Problem solved. The original CT scan also revealed a smaller stone on my right side. This Tuesday morning I awoke with the same type of pain but on my right side also with nausea and vomiting. Lasted about five hours. Took some advil and called urologist. Next available appt is in a month but I emailed him (he's a great guy) and he told me to come by, drop off a urine sample and he'll give me a CT scan prescription.

Started doing some research Tuesday night and found this site. The pain and nausea had stopped but I felt a tiny constant pressure in my left side. I started drinking lemon juice mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar and water. Probably about 6 ounces each of LJ and ACV total that night. But it was store bought LJ concentrate. Used organic ACV. No problems on Wednesday - drank about another 6 ounces of LJ/ACV too. Woke up this morning with similar type of pain and nausea except much less severe. I immediately drank non-Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I was out of EV) and same lemon juice. About one ounce each. I'm going to the store today to get real lemons and EVOO. Going for CT scan tomorrow. I'll post follow ups. Fingers crossed.

I have had urology problems for many years, and have had lithotripsy twice for separate stones. On both occasions the surgical method was successful for bladder stones. On both occasions the stone has sat in the bladder and has behaved like a float, and blocked off the urethra stopping urine flow.The first time caused intense pain, "epididymitis orchitis" and and septicemia. The reason this happened in the first place was because I had a urethral stricture in the early 90's.

Urologists sorted this by grafting skin from my leg to create a new and enlarged urethra. Now with this treatment you would think it was "job done" but it was if anything the cause of my "epididymitis orchitis" in 2009. The cause was the skin graft in the 90's had hair follicles which grew internally through the urethra and thus restricting flow, retaining urine and over time creating a 10cm stone which suddenly started to release toxins and produce immense pain. I had a repeat of the same in 2010 which was sorted by lithotripsy and the hair inside the urethra was all burned away by laser treatment.

Now I have a new stone and as before the stone settles at the neck of the urethra or somewhere close by. The position stops the urine flow by acting as a stopper. When laying down the stone rests on the nerves around the edge of the bladder which is damn uncomfortable as I always think I need a wee.

Anyway, I do not relish the thought of yet another hospital stay so have been looking at your pages and "cures" concerning this. I have been using the olive oil/lemon juice option and can report very good results so far with the stone quite obviously breaking down and being expelled as gravel. I am encouraged by the results so far and I will update some more in next few days. I set out to try anything that saves the surgical intervention. Watch this space!! The image is exactly how my bladder stone is.

I was rushed to the ER after three days of pretty intense pain, they thought it was shingles due to the pain a CT showed there was a 9CM stone. is located about 1/2 into the ureter it didnt block for some reason the abilities to pass urine but caused frequent and low volume more often. A 9cm seems to be about the size of a pea, gees and wonder why it was painful.

Then did laser and then installed a stent between the bladder and kidney in the ureter. I go back tomorrow for another shot at destroying the stone via laser. Then another stent for a week. So far small discomfort I think is more from the stent not sure I have passed and stones yet as after laser there was blood for 4 days and it could have passed.

Not fun and painful, going to give this lemon juice and olive oil remedy a try after the next surgery see if I can eliminate future stones.

Your website is a Godsend. My husband has had over 40 kidney stones in is life. Friday night I had to take him to the emergency room he was in so much pain. He had a 5mm stone they kept him overnight on morphine.

Then I found this website and Sunday I gave him one dose of the two ounces of bottled lemon juice and 2 ounces of extra virgin olive oil in some water (we also put some apple cider vinegar in it).

We repeated that 3 times on Monday. Tuesday morning he got up and passed the stone. He has never passed the stone that fast. He had no more pain after starting the regimen. Thank you so much!

I have been reading with interest many of the comments on the lemon juice and olive oil treatment for kidney stones. I have never tried this, but I will most certainly give it a go as I have been a sufferer for my entire life (74 years). From a recent visit and CT scan, I find that I have four stones in my left kidney and three in my right kidney. Fortunately, they are all only about the size of grains of sand but they still make their presencë felt as they "bump up" against the entrance of the ureter.

The main reason I write is that it seems to be an assumption in all of the comments that I have read that all stones will eventually pass through to the bladder. This is not correct, as some stones become too large and/or deformed to progress through the ureter without some sort of surgical or other treatment. All the way back in 1979, I spent some ten days in hospital getting a stone surgically removed - I still have it, and it looks like a piece of black coral, complete with all of the jagged edges. I have attached a photo below.

So, even though this mixture seems to give some pain relief, and helps move the stones in the majority of cases, do not put yourself through unnecessary pain by taking too long to find out the size or "shape" of the stone.

Here's hoping that the mixture will help in stopping the formation of any future stones in my own kidneys.

Good LORD! I saw the picture when I scrolled down to read more posts and saw the title that included "kidney stones" (before actually reading the post) and thought; "Oh my GOD, someone actually PASSED that boulder?! " (lol) YIKES!! It looks like a meteor! :D

I was relieved to read that you had it surgically removed and agree that sometimes, like it or not, the knife is the only way to rid yourself of large stones.

The lemon/olive oil is a great remedy for smaller stones though.

Been reading through this, and plan to try the lemon juice OO treatment. Currently suffering with kidney stone in left side and in a great deal of pain. Some borrowed pain killers and wine are helping for the moment. Really trying to avoid the ER and surgery yet again. Have had Cystoscopy and extra corporal lithotripsy twice. Urologist's solution is to keep me on diuretics but this raised my calcium to dangerous levels and endocrinologist took me off them. I hate my Urologist because he doesn't listen to my concerns and will be pissed that someone else changed my meds. Unfortunately, most urologists in this town are with the same practice. Really trying to avoid an ER visit tonight so sent the hubby to the store for lemons. Will let you all know the outcome.

Hi Phyllis, when you say you had drink the mixture 3 times in a day, did he have any food that day if so when or do you need to fast all day? I'm keen to try it myself, any how I'm glad to hear it was successful for him. Cheers

My second round of kidney stones, and my second round of success with this incredibly efficient (if not a little nasty) cure! Since now I understand what kidney stones feel like, I was able to take a first does immediately after feeling my kidney pain, which I think made a difference in keeping the pain manageable.

I took 2 ounces of fresh lemon juice, added 1.5 ounces of olive oil (shaken together) followed by about a quart of water. I went to bed about an hour later, with the pain reduced enough to allow me to sleep. Repeated in the morning, after breakfast, and although this made my stomach feel horrible, the pain completely disappeared by the afternoon.

I also experienced a sickening headache, which I think must have to do with eliminating all the bad stuff. Luckily, as I continued drinking water all day, the headache cleared by the evening.

Good luck to you all--I am so grateful to have an easily accessible remedy to such a painful condition.

To Rebecca (Newburgh, In) on 01/02/2016. For the olive oil/lemon juice mixture to work on your kidney stones you need to use real unprocessed lemon juice from real lemons. I am speaking from experience.

I went through a period when my diet was bad and I was creating what doctors like to call "gravel" in my kidneys. This gravel would eventually stick together to form larger stones. I I followed a protocol of drinking 2 spoons of lemon juice in water first thing in the morning and eliminated the kidney problem within weeks.

However, when I switched from real squeezed lemon juice to a bottled "so-called real lemon juice" and had a return of kidney stones within 6 weeks. I think the pasturizing, which all bottled liquids go through, kills the active ingredients that you need for this to work.

Hi,

I had the same question ... It goes rancid too fast inside of us as I understand its only olive oil, cold pressed and organic that will do the job. I have done it 2 times already and was amazed at what came out.

Try an organic coffee enema 2 hours after drinking 8-10oz with a side glass of lemon juice 4oz drinking alternately. This is from my own experience. The feeling of the oil inside isnt what I would call pleasant but what comes after is worth some small discomfort. I didn't collect the stones but took a pic of the first round in the toilet. I also was applying a castor oil pack 3 times a day for 2 hours each time for 2 days prior. I hope this helps.

I've had kidney stones at least 4 times, the last incident was this year. I'm thankful that my daughter told me about the lemon juice and olive oil home remedy, along with the water chaser and then 30 minutes later an apple cider vinegar with lemon juice (everything has to be absolutely organic and no additives). Within a few hours I was relieved of the excruciating pain. No horrendous medical costs and quick relief. The second part to this is to keep those suckers from coming back. Follow this list and it will most likely eliminate forever another excruciating bout with the stones.

Eliminate these food items from your diet:

Caffeine; Sugar and artificial sweeteners; Added salt; Carbonated drinks; Dairy foods and processed foods. Decrease your intake of animal protein and leafy greens like spinach, okra, swiss chard.

I've been following this and so far have not had another incident.

Hi, 37 yr/female -IT WORKED FOR ME :) I CANT BELIEVE IT!!

I had a kidney stone 4mm last year, went to ER immense pain, was given cat scan, pain pills Flomax the same as everyone else and sent home pat on the back good luck. I writhed around in pain even with pills for 3 days and finally pasted the stone UGH ...........SO here's where this remedy comes in , I get another ct scan for concern of kidney stones because my likelihood to have them with IBD ( ulcerative colitis) and bummer I have a 3 mm stone sitting in kidney. I said NO WAY am I going to wait for this thing to attack me. I was NOT in ANY pain when I started this.

This is what I did exactly:

@1030am I took 2 ounces fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 ounce olive oil mixed together and drank down ( I didn't do two oz of oil because I have a sensitivity to fats/oils) followed by 3 liters of water over the next 6hrs then I repeated above recipe remedy at 430pm then drank 1.5 liters of water. Went to bed after peeing A BUNCH in a urine collector, woke up @630am -peed and BAM there was a stone!!! I DIDN'T FEEL IT AT ALL, NO JOKE DIDN'T KNOW TILL I LOOKED!!! AMAZING!! I measured it on ruler 3mm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I seriously can't believe the difference between this stone passing and my last experience. What a relief this was!

*note: after second dose I felt the lemon was way more acidic feeling in my stomach and was a bit scared that it was gonna burn my insides and I got kinda gassy and heartburn feeling ( took baking soda and relieved that)

* a bit after 1st dose I got a little nausea feeling, probably oil, didn't vomit, wasn't too bad drank hot ginger water

* somewhere in this day I did this I got diarrhea 2x

* I forgot at 1230 pm ( 2hrs after first dose) I swallowed 1TBL organic Apple cider vinegar mixed with a few ounces juice.

Dear Pipicarter, Thank you for your post. The OO and lemon juice also worked for me after the second dose. Several years ago I had a stone so large it ripped one of my ureters. An IVP revealed I had three ureters, not stones.

I had asked if there was a correlation between IBS and kidney stones. I had also asked EC if I could substitute CO for OO but have not received a reply. I have no transportation now and have four containers of CO, but only a little over a half a 25 oz. bottle of OO.

There was a report about even brand named, imported OO being diluted with cheaper oils to cut costs. I have had to return several bottles because they went rancid. Maybe that is why you felt nauseous.

I can't speak for anybody else, but I heartily recommend lemon juice. I have had kidney stones twice in the last two years. The first time I went to the emergency room, where they told me I had a kidney stone. They gave me some pain pills and sent me home. The pain pills did very little and the pain was unlike anything I had ever felt. I came upon a web site that recommended lemon juice and olive oil. I mixed a couple of ounces of each and down the hatch it went. An hour later I repeated the procedure. Within the next hour I felt a lessening of the pain and by morning I was pain free.

Fast forward to last night. Once again, the sudden excruciating pain. This time I was ready and within 3 hours I was back to normal. I can promise I will never be without lemon juice and olive oil. I must warn you, olive oil isn't the most sumptuous taste and the lemon juice will make you pucker. The results are well worth the taste.

This mix of just 2oz lemon juice with 2oz olive oil worked so fast in stopping the awful pain caused by a 6ml kidney stone, it is an amazing cure. Here is the story, this is the first time I have kidney stones so I really didn't know what I was dealing with, only that the pains were worse than childbirth!

I had excruciating pains on and off for 10 days before I ended up at the ER, in Florida, dehydrated and desperate with pain on the left flank and lower abdomen. The scan results came indicating a 6ml stone in the left kidney, and traces of other stones having already passed. I spent 3 days in the hospital with IV, unable to eat because I would throw up everything, even water. The 3rd day the pains didn't come for 12 hours and the doctors discharged me with a painkiller and vomiting prescription, telling me to comeback in a week!!!! Happily I went home, but 3 hours later the pain and weakness came started to comeback.

In desperation I googled Earthclinic and so the top cure! I squeezed the lemon an oil, whisked it together and gulped down, in 15 minutes I was a normal person again, the pain disappeared, and no more tiredness and dizziness. Now this doesn't last, every 4 hours or so I have take another shot of this or the pain comes with the other awful feelings of nausea, sweating, just unwell. But this beats all the other drugs for pain that I was given at the hospital, I had morphine and oxicodone (can't remember the spelling of this one). The stone still there, it's only 12 hours since I started the olive oil/ lemon juice treatment but I got the pain under control, totally pain free for every few hours until next dose of lemon and oil. I still need to read more about kidney stones treatment and prevention. A million thanks to Earth Clinic and all those who shared their stories, Thank God you guys are around!

My 5mm kidney stone was diagnosed in June, when it moved from ureter to my bladder. No pain after that, the doctor told me to call again if it doesn't pass until the end of August. I started to study some more about this and found this site a few weeks ago. I was sure that the stone was still there and had a few days of olive oil & lemon juice, and nothing happened then. Yesterday I had an ultra sound test and surprisingly the stone had disappeared! I was totally surprised. I'm not quite sure if it was the olive oil & lemon combination as I had started adding lemon juice in my water earlier. My guess is that it's the lemon that made the stone dissolve so that I didn't feel absolutely anything. I didn't notice any sediment in my urine either. I also have been eating normally, not limiting any other than rhubarb basically. Drinking a lot more water than I used to of course. And lemon juice is there to stay!

Now that I haven't had any symptoms in 8 months, I believe that the lemon dissolved the stone. Now drinking water 1,5-2 l/day, I hope it helps to keep another stone away.

A kidney stone was found in my right kidney weeks ago. There was some blood in my urine but that was the only symptom until a week and a half ago when I started feeling like I had to urinate all the time. This increased until the past couple of days, when I have had constant urge to urinate and burning. It was unbearable last night and I couldn't sleep. Advil didn't help at all. Then I found out there was a bottle of straight lemon juice in fridge.

I did 1/2 juice 1/2 olive oil, probably about an ounce of each. After about 30 minutes or so (not exactly sure how long), burning lessened and need to pee diminished and suddenly I was comfortable and could relax and go to sleep. I don't know if stone passed but I don't think so. Still comfortable this morning. Why didn't I do this sooner!!! Thanks.
