A friend of ours related a story to us that I thought I would share.
Her elderly mother was in the hospital. Her mother has many health problems including dementia and heart problems. (I am not even sure why she was in the hospital.)
While in the hospital, her mother was having severe pain but couldn't tell them why (due to the dementia) and our friend and the staff were mystified.
Then our friend remembered that her mother had a history of kidney stones. She asked the doctor if they could check. Sure enough she had kidney stones, according to a scan. They wanted to do surgery, but it would be a few days out and of course, surgery had its own risks with her age and health problems.
Our friend asked if they could try Stone Breaker herb, that her mother had used it before. The hospital was not willing. They said they didn't know how it might interact with her medications, and she had a feeding tube so that complicated giving it to her.
Well, surgery was taking a while to schedule and our friend was very kind and but persistent. She finally found a doctor to agree to try it, even though, he said, it wouldn't help.
They gave her stone breaker 4 times a day. After a couple of days, it was clear that the pain was gone. Surgery seemed to have been forgotten and they were going to send her home.
Our friend asked if they could check about the kidney stones. The doctor was reluctant but did another scan, and what do you know, the stones were gone!
There are several morals to the story - one is that hospital patients benefit greatly by having an advocate, family who knows them, especially. Second is that kindness goes a long way, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, as the old saying says. And third, stone breaker works!

5 years ago, I had a kidney stone.
During the night, I felt very painful area around the liver area, and I thought I was having appendicitis. Went to the emergency ward, and they said it was something else. After doing MRI, it was a kidney stone stuck in the urinary tract between the kidney and bladder. But to proceed with the procedure they said I need to wait another 3 months, because of many others are waiting in line. I could only afford the government funded hospitals.
Tried to research the internet, and I found something about Chanca Piedra. Fortunately, this herbs grows wildly in my garden. I took a bunch of it and simmer it in water and drank it half a cup daily.
To my astonishment, the pain diminished. Previously I couldn't eat too much since if I eat too much it presses on the affected area and it became painful. I couldn't sleep well at night because of back pain and just tossing around the bed became painful. There is something in Chance Piedra that acts as analgesics. After drinking it, I can sleep better since the pain reduces to tolerable threshold.
One day, I have the urge to urinate, and it felt a bit difficult since I need to push harder in order for the urine to flow out. Suddenly, I hear a loud sound from the toilet bowl like a big pebble clashing down the toilet. It was the kidney stone, coming out without any notice. After that I felt a great relief, I can eat more food, since the pain was already gone.
Another thing that I notice is, my blood pressure reduced to a normal level. I've been taking blood pressure medication without any success, it only capable of reducing my reading in a small numbers. I'm not sure what Chanca Piedra has done to my blood pressure, but the normal value persists for a month. But it came back to abnormal level, perhaps because I was not taking Chance Piedra anymore.
Gonna try again if it could fix my blood pressure since changing several bp medications couldn't fix my bp level.
Recently a friend with kidney stones was using chanca piedra for them, but the stones would keep coming back. I asked if they were using calcium supplements since the doctor had told them that the stones were formed from calcium. As it turned out, they were supplementing with calcium. They discontinued the calcium supplement and the stones did not come back!
If your stones are formed from calcium, this may be relevant.
Another chanca piedra for kidney stones success story.
A friend of mine who has a history of kidney stones recently developed a new case which he hadn't had in years. The pain was bad enough that he had to crawl out of bed very slowly and could not stand up straight for the little while that he was able to get out of bed to go to the bathroom. He started on Chanca Piedra and the pain started to diminish the first day and was gone by the third day, but he continued to take it "just in case".
He took two 500 mg tablets at breakfast, two at lunch and two at dinner and each time with a full glass of water for 3 grams total per day.
Oh happy day. I realized three weeks ago another kidney stone was kicking in. That would be my fifth in eight years. My formula that has worked for previous stones is using six lemons per day, cut in half and the juice mixed with water. So I'd drink 12 glasses of lemon water a day. After three to six days the stones would be gone. And I'm happy to have that solution; but on this latest one I decided to give "stone breaker" a try and had a bottle of the liquid form on hand anticipating a new attack. And as I said, it came about three weeks ago. So I started with twelve drops in water of stone breaker on empty stomach three times a day... a LOT easier than drinking huge quantities of lemon water. Well in three days...stone gone.
Now I have two methods of getting rid of stones. Oh happy day.
My father who is in his 70s had gone to the doctor and found that he had kidney stones. I love this site, so started looking on this site concerning kidney stones and found posting using chanca piedra to get rid of kidney stones. He went and got it and used it as directed by a former post in favor of using it for kidney stones. Well, when he went back to the doctor after using it, the doctor could not find any kidney stones when they did there tests. It worked.
I've had three surgeries and a painful stent for kidney stones and so when I felt yet another stone I decided I needed to try something different. I found a naturopathic doctor and by the time I made it to an appointment I was already in serious pain from the latest stone. She recounted the many successes she'd had with high-potency, quality chanca piedra (translates to 'stone breaker'). To pass the stone she prescribed high doses and I immediately started on the bottle of Disolvatol purchased from her office (6 capsules per day.. total of 1,350mgs per day). Within a few hours the pain was drastically reduced and later that night I passed the 3mm stone.
She then had me decrease to the normal dosage of just two capsules per day (one morning, one evening... total of 450mgs) to attack the stones before they had a chance to fully form and now I've been 20 months now without one stone. NONE! ZERO! I even had to go back for a scan I had scheduled and my regular doctor was dumbfounded to see that there were no stones visible in the scan (same doctor who told me I was wasting my time with herbs). The previous scan had shown DOZENS of stones but they had all been dissolved. I did later pass one stone but it was tiny and gave me no pain. The rest were just reduced to sand.
The mega lemon regimen did not work for me and just made my stomach hurt but this solution has been a blessing. I did get some pleasure when my regular doctor admitted he was amazed and told me to "keep doing whatever you've been doing" :)
I don't know if you can post photos here on EC but if you can I'll go ask for a copy of my before and after scans.
Three weeks ago a friend told me that he had kidney stones that were giving him morphine level pain and the doctor had told him that he had an 8mm kidney stone along with an assortment of smaller stones in his kidneys.
I gave him two bottles of Chanca Piedra and told him to take 6 capsules per day total at a rate of two capsules three times per day or 3 grams total per day.
From the first day he started taking the chanca piedra, his pain went away and he just called me to say that his urologist took xrays yesterday to decide how they would proceed with his treatment and told him he didn't have any stones and he was very lucky! The doctor asked him what he had done and when he started to tell the doctor about taking chanca piedra, the doctor just stopped him, looked at him like he was crazy and told him, 'whatever you did, just keep doing it'. The doctor also asked him if he passed brown urine (blood) or if it hurt much when they passed. He answered by saying that he had been screening his urine and nothing had shown on the screen and he never felt any of the stones pass and there had been no brown urine! The doctor said, 'I don't understand'.
Cost for this cure.......less than $20 for two bottles of chanca piedra including shipping! It worked just like everyone has said here on EC!
Chanca Piedra will disolve the kidney stone and it will pass PAIN FREE..After giving chanca piedra to more than 100 people with kidney stones, German physician, Wolfram Wiemann found that 94 percent of them eliminated their stones within two weeks.
I have had over 80 oxylate stones so far - culprits were lots of sweets and salts, and LOTS of soda. Now I eat VERY differently - mostly fruits, some vegs, some lean protein, some probiotic dairy, preferrably goat/sheep (closer to human milk than cow). I know every level of pain except screaming, and was perilously close to that once. I know the emergency room complex at my local hospital intimately. My remedy and preventative is Chanca Piedra. Works like absolute GANGBUSTERS. Literally pulverizes the stone. Turns it into gravel. My stones evidently grow like apples, and acv, etc. causes them to drop whole into my ureters and cause trouble. The operations I've had have caused weakness in my 'pipes'. I take a handful of drops of C.P. daily now, and take it with me on trips. Stone free now!
Just passed my first stone. Hit with extreme pain just before thanksgiving. Doctor sent me for a CT-IVP scan to confirm stone. Found a 5 mm in ureter and gave me 50-70% chance to pass on its own. I was given Flowmax and vicoden. After several painful days, things seemed to be okay. However, I never found anything in my strainer or the toilet. A month later, I have a follow up CT and find that the stone is still there, just resting comfortabley in lower ureter.
Bummer! Urologist wants to go in there, laser it, and leave a painful stent behind. I was willing to do anything to avoid that.
Found this site, read about Chanca Piedra and decided to try it. Took the tea version (ordered from Amazon), twice/day (8 ounces or so at a time). I felt different and though not in much pain, could tell the stone was moving again. Four days later (and two weeks before my surgery), out came the stone! It was still 5mm and rather jagged, but at least is was out. I can't tell you how relieved you feel when you know you don't have to deal with it anymore.
I am convinced this stuff works. Give it a try (be careful as it can mess with your heart and heart rate) and save yourself an expensive and uncomfortable procedure.
I went to a naturopath that commented that chanca piedra might destroy the dentin of teeth as it breaks down calcium in the body. I was wondering if maybe Bill would know if that is true.

Chanca Piedra is the most effective remedy for kidney stones and ureter spasms that your money can buy! I have had serious problems with stones and spasms in the past, and now when I feel a stab in the back from a stone, or a tightening in the ureter areas, I take two droppers full, and like magic the pain and discomfort disappear. The taste is bearable -- kinda like prune juice -- and I carry a bottle in my purse at all times. Even today I had to use it, so here I am reordering and letting everyone know that this is a WONDERFUL product.
I've had several bouts with kidney stones and went through all of the traditional therapies and treatments, including surgery. Nothing helped and I was left with an extremely large stone that was too large to pass. I did some research and discovered chanca piedra, so I ordered some. A couple months after starting a regime of taking 15 drops 2 X day, my monster stone started moving again. I dreaded the pain I knew would accompany this process and the medical bills we would be facing for treatment. To my surprise, after a few days of mild discomfort, I actually passed the stone that was "too large to pass!!" Moreover, it passed painlessly and my discomfort immediately ended. This stuff is great! I wish I had known about it years ago, as I could have saved a lot of money and avoided some horrific pain. It's the best medical investment I've ever made.
I recently had 2 5mm kidney stones confirmed by ct scan one in the ureter and one in the kidney. All the er doc could do was send me home with prescriptions for hydrocodone telling me it might take 2 or more weeks to pass. I was on the hydrocodone for 5 days until the stone had moved enough to give me some relief. Needless to say I was not a happy camper that I was just supposed to wait until the stone moved to the other locations by the pelvis and into the bladder when he told me I would just have to take the pain pills and wait it out.
So as I was researching and found out about chance piedra I went to a local health food store and bought a tincture. Took it 4 times the first day, a dropperfull in 8 ounces of water. I also drank apple juice and water throughout the day. In the pee strainer appeared small mounds of what looked like wet sugar. Most of it came out the first day and by the second day I believe all of it had come out. I put the sugar in another dish and when it dried it was a bright white color of what I believe was the pulverized calcium oxalate stone. (80% are) There was no pain and I am ecstatic. If this will help someone else avoid the awful pain of passing stones I am happy to pass it along.
