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.

I have recently learned that I have four stones in one kidney and one in the other. One of the stones is 1.6 cm and the other three in that kidney are .5 cm. I'm scared to have them blasted out, and also apprehensive about trying the olive oil and lemon juice. I'd love some advice.

I've had ongoing back pain for a few weeks now and thought it was just a pulled muscle, that's until the pain got severely worse. With my husbands insistence I finally went to the emergency room yesterday. The CT scan showed that I have a 3 mm stone in each kidney. The pain meds they prescribed are not working, and I'm not getting any sleep. So, I decided to try a home remedy which led me to Earth Clinic. I took my first dose of lemon and olive oil mixture this afternoon ....and right now I'm PAIN FREE!!!! I can't believe it. Next dose, tonight before bed. I hope it helps me sleep through the night...stay tuned!

Hi all. I read through most of everyone's posts and I signed up for this site just to post my results. It worked!! Or something did, but I passed my stone about 30 minutes ago after drinking my 2nd cocktail of lemon juice and olive oil with a side of water after. It did the trick. A few minutes later I felt all the symptoms I read about, such as having the sensation to pee but not being able to, and having a bit of a burning sensation in my penis, but not too bad. I have to say, whether it was just time for it to pass, or all the water I drank the past 2 days or the cocktail, I am very relieved to have gotten it out. It was 4 mm in size I was told by the emergency room doctor on Monday morning after they did the cat scan. And like everyone else, I woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain. It was on my left side, not my back at all, between my abdomen and hip. I drove myself to the hospital, driving thru some red lights after looking to see no one was around and was thinking I was going to pass out. I was moaning so loud in the bed in my room in the emergency room area they had to come in and tell me to control myself. I will say that while the pain was something I do not ever want to have to go thru again, it was not the worst I have ever encountered. Once when I was hiking back down a mountain, I sprained my knee on a fall, but did not know it. There was so much snow on the mountain and I was cold and bundled up so really did not know. Anyway, after hiking all the way down, on the ride home, my knee started hurting and it got worse and worse. It took me a while to put 2 and 2 together that it was from my fall. But once we got home, it was so bad, I was literally crying in pain. I have never cried before from pain and I think I almost passed out. Anyway, this stone was almost as bad but not quite. The sprained knee being walked on down a mountain was a 12 out of 10. The stone was a 10 out of 10 pain threshold. Just glad it is out.

2 oz lemon juice and 2 oz olive oil did the trick for me. Rushed to the emergency room with worst pain of my life, tests showed I had a 3mm stone. Morphine in the ER and Norco to take at home. I was taking the pain pill every 2 hours and then found this remedy. I downed the whole 4 oz at once and almost immediately the pain was gone. I never had to take another pain pill and the next morning the stone passed -- caught it in the strainer they gave me at the ER. BTW - after I took the 4 oz at once, I read on to see that most sites recommend drinking it a little at a time to avoid nausea... probably a good idea.

I had a non-obstructive 6mm lower pole calyceal stone detected by ultrasound and was referred to a urologist who was sure I was a surgical candidate because of where it was. Mine wasn't trying to pass and only caused a little pain from time to time. I read all of the posts on this site, but no one had my situation - a stone that was just sitting there in a calyx and not trying to pass...
My urologist sent me for a low-dose CT scan and in the 3-4 days before I went, I took the lemon juice & olive oil remedy about 4 times over 3 days in an attempt to dissolve it. I also drank a LOT of heavily concentrated lemon water (50% lemon)and did a shot or two of apple cider vinegar. When I got my CT scan results today, the doctor was surprised and said, "That's why we do a CT because the ultrasound showed a 6 mm stone! " All I have now, after my Earth Clinic lemon juice/olive oil remedy, is a few teeny tiny kidney stone spots ("punctate calculi") that I shouldn't even feel as they pass! She recommended I continue with the lemon juice to maintain alkalinity and a stone-free kidney.

Many people have commented about the lemon juice and olive oil Tx helping them to pass kidney stones. My husband has a stone 2.5 cm (not mm) x 1cm stone. Would the Tx help to dissolve the stone since it is too large to pass? I hope he can avoid the surgery they are suggesting. Thanx!

Lemon and Olive oil for kidney stones
3 days ago. Mine hit me like a ton of bricks. One day I was fine the next day flat on my back, with Hydrocodone, Advil, and a valium not even TOUCHING the pain. I knew what it was just through evaluation although I had never had the pleasure of experiencing one. Everything they say is true. I had to crawl to the bathroom the pain was so severe. Started researching as a last ditch attempt before going to the ER, followed by CAT scan and all the other lovely goings on that I knew would follow. :/ Earth Clinic has been a go to site for me for a decade now and has never failed me. Fell onto the Lemon/Olive oil suggestion and immediately tried it. By this time it was evening of the first day. Woke up next day, "thought" it felt a little better...did another round of it that morning...followed by a 2nd round before bed. Next day felt 80% better!!!! Followed same routine. Today (3rd day), I can barely feel it. Will continue this protocol until it disappears completely. ?? To my knowledge, I haven't passed anything or was so small I wasn't aware of it. The progression feels more like to me that it's dissolving (?). Is anyone aware of what the technical principle is behind how this works ? (which it obviously does..?) as in say, what role does the Olive oil play? Can Ted explain it, I would love to know his thoughts on it. Thanks AGAIN Earth Clinic. You are a life saver!!

I had been diagnosed w/a 4mm kidney stone in the hospital ER via CTscan. Dr gave me pain killers & naseau medicine-that's it. Went to Uroligist 2 days later-he gave me Flomax-no results. I found this site here & gave the olive oil & lemon juice a try. 3 days later I'm totally pain free! I haven't seen a stone yet, so I'm guessing it got dissolved by the oolj mixture. Like Drano for kidney stones!

Definitely YEA, because I was diagnosed with a 6mm kidney stone which they said was borderline for treatment. So they sent me home after giving me a pain killing jab. At home , in desperation I found earth clinic and this cure And took two doses of the 2oz lemon/olive oil on 2 consecutive days.
I found that this immediately stopped the pain so that all I felt was pressure and discomfort. After a couple of weeks that went too.
Now, 8 weeks later , I have just been for X-ray and the doctor was astounded that it was gone, but also that I had not passed it . The lemon and olive oil must have somehow dissolved it! In his disbelief he is sending me for a CT scan to make sure its gone, but I know it has because I have no symptoms at all .
Earth clinic is a fab idea. I am now going to try some of the hot flash cures too!

I was reading all the great results people have with the olive oil and lemon juice mix when having kidney stones. I do have a 5mm stone coming down my ureter, I was told my ureter is narrow due to some scar tissue I developed after a previous surgery. (no kidney or ureter related).. My question is: have anybody in this group try to pass the stone with OOLJ having a narrow ureter? Any suggestions? Thanks!

I stumbled across this site after returning home from the emergency room the other day diagnosed with a 3.6 mm kidney stone. I was not even searching for home remedies, I was searching for an image of what the stone might look like. Thank God for Earth Clinic! I tried the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil remedy at 5pm the day after returning home from the ER. The stone passed WITHOUT ANY PAIN at 1pm the following day. Am going to search this site for some other ailments that have been troubling me. Thank you Earth Clinic!

I had my first kidney stone last year, two days before Thanksgiving, with a household full of company. They hauled me out the door to the ER the day after Thanksgiving. I had a CT scan and they found one 5-6mm stone on my right side and said there might be one on the left side. Although they sent me home with pain meds, I began vomiting non-stop and went back and spent another 8 hours in the hospital before they again, sent me home to wait for the Blasting machine that would be available on Monday.
I have had four children through natural childbirth, and have NEVER felt such pain as I did with this stone.
Now here I am almost one year later and it's begun again. Two days ago I thought I had food poisoning. Then by last night I realized what was wrong and spent a night unable to sleep, wandering the house, waiting for morning.
A friend told me to take 3 Naproxin and research some home remedies since I did not want to repeat what happened last year. Then I came upon this site. I've had my first Lemon Juice/Olive Oil drink and will repeat that mid-day and tonght. Hopefully I'll have a great report like many others have posted here.
I'll be back!
