Lemon Juice and Olive Oil

5 out of 5 stars

I had pain for months, thought it was uti, finally had a CT in ER two months ago that showed a 5 mm stone in my right ureter a couple of inches from my bladder. Scheduled a follow up with urologist but had to cancel as I have a child that is 2 and needs medical care. The pain would come and go. My frequency and urgency to urinate was the most bothersome. I finally realized I should try and pass this stone to avoid more appointments and surgery. Last night around 10 pm I mixed 2 oz extra virgin olive oil with 2 oz lemon juice. (the liquid squeeze kind, not fresh squeezed) I drank maybe ten to twelve teaspoons of the mixture and really didn't like the oil taste but it was tolerable. I was afraid of getting nauseous as I'm very prone to nausea and figured I would drink more in the morning. I passed my 5 mm stone at 9 am this morning! I must add that I was also using a vibrating back massager on my abdomen and back as I had also read that helps pass stones. I really feel like the lemon juice/olive oil was what caused the stone to pass. It had been in the same place for a long time and today it's out!! I'm so relieved!
