6mm bladder stone: GONE!!

I have to admit I was a little sceptical and the thought of downing shots of a solution of olive oil and lemon juice made me want to gag..the reviews (and the pain! ) convinced me to give it a try. I am 14 weeks pregnant and have always suffered from cystitis, UTIs and kidney infections but since becoming pregnant, I felt like I had a permanent UTI, despite a course of antibiotics. My pregnancy ultrasound, the sonography spotted a 6mm stone in my bladder. The pain and symptoms were getting progressively worse but all the medics told me they couldn't do anything as I was pregnant. The thought of enduring this for the next 6months was awful. Then your website! Did four lots of oil and lemon yesterday and another two today. Whereas yesterday, the pain seemed to ease after each shot for a while, this afternoon it felt like it was worsening and had a very 'sharp' feeling down below. Went to the loo and thought my urine was a little pink so worried it may contain blood. Drank lots more warm water and then collected the next lot in a container to see if there was blood present and there was the stone!! Didn't even feel it! Hope that is the end of it and good riddance! But thank god for your website!

To get rid of bladder stones take 5 drops of Equisetum hyemale (horsetail) tincture in one teaspoon of water 4 times a day. It works wonderfully.

Hi Dave,

The herbal supplement Chanca Piedra, on EC is generally considered a very good supplement for kidney stones and sometimes for gall stones. It is thought to act as a preventative based on studies and as a means of breaking large stones into smaller stones that can be passed with minimal to no pain.

Here is a link to a typical product:

Does this remedy, slowly melt the stone away, or does it release it immediately?? Have a 22mm stone??

Chanca Piedra Herbal Benefits (, I buy swanson brand and they run out of it a lot so I buy more than one to keep around for my daily use of borax in my water it releases calcium from soft tissues and that can be painful. Stones are usually from dehydration. Hope you get quick results.

Blessings, charity

Does anyone know if horsetail is a slow melting or rapid release of the bladder stone?
