I have used lemon juice and Olive oil for about a month and half now. I used 1 Lemon with 1 oz olive oil with apple cider vinegar occasionally two to three times a day and I do the trampoline jump almost everyday. I had an ultra sound test recently and found the stone is about the same size and is still at the same location at the upper pole of the left kidney.

The lemon juice and olive oil solution did not work for me. Perhaps I just couldn't stomach it long enough (I started to feel sick from the acid) but I got no results from it when I tried on my last stone (3mm).

I have been trying ACV and OO lemon remedy for more than a week and it din't work for me. I have tried almost all types of doses which have been mentioned by various people in previous posts. I am thinking of give up on both of these and I am really sad that what should I do now. My stone is in lower pole calyx of right kidney ( size-3mm ). I think it's difficult to pass the stone from lower calyx and also maybe it's difficult to dissolve it. Any suggestion would be really appreciated. Thanks!!

Tried this but it did not work. Stone and pain are still there. Pain has increased.

Didn't work for me either unfortunately and I damn near overdosed on the stuff! Sure wish I could pass my 5mm stone and get my life back on track.

Oh well, back to searching for remedies ....

I tried and still I have not passed the stone in my right ureter size 11 mm.

I drank about a 200 ml bottle with lemon ( 2oz 2oz) continusly for two days.

Looks like the remedy depends on person to person.

Suffering with my first kidney stone and on day 19 decided to try this "remedy". Its been 24 hours and my stone is still there, painful as ever.

This is to Eva in Chatanooga - There are three kinds of kidney stones. I have the second most common kind of stones. The lemon and olive oil didn't work for me. Perhaps the olive oil and lemon juice only work on the most common kind. If anyone out there knows of a treatment for other kinds of stones, please let me know.

I took the Olive Oil/Lemon Juice treatment for my kidney stone. I wish that I could say that it has given me any degree of relief at all. It has not. I tried it for 3 days hoping for any diminishment in the pain as an indicator that it was starting to work. I blended 2 ozs of each three times a day. Easy to do. Fairly easy to swallow. Certainly cheap enough. But there was not a drop in pain at all. Maybe the size of my stone(1.5 cms) was also factor in the failure of this remedy. I don't think that I saw a single stone that was as large. Still after 3 days you would think that there would be something of a change after all the positive testimonials that I read last week. I have ordered an online product as a last ditch remedy before I submit to ESWL.

I've been using Lemon Juice/Olive Oil combo for 2 months now and was sad to see my x-ray this past Monday reveal the stone has not moved in over a month! It has reached only about 1/4 of the way down my left ureter, and just seems to be stuck. It is less than 5mm but it won't go! My urine specimen revealed NO blood cells, and I have had only a little bit of pain every so often. I've had stones before this, but this is a very strange time. I've ordered some Chanca Piedra tincture and plan to try that... who knows. I am very discouraged. I'm self-employed, and having had stones before, I am in a PRE-EXISTING, EXCLUSIONARY STATUS according to my health Insurance company. So ANYTHING I do, whether diagnostically or procedurally I have absolutely no coverage. My Urologist told me the other day that he would give me 3 months to see if anything passes, and after that he recommends doing a cystoscope/laser removal, leaving me with a stent for a while... "because since you have no insurance, that's the cheapest alternative to ESWL"... what a guy!

I have a 4.8 mm kidney stone stuck in my kidney for the last 18 months. It doesn't cause pain, but causes discomfort. Lemon juice and olive oil remedy (about 8 dosages) didn't get it out. I am wondering if it is not calcium oxlate stone, but it could be struvite stone? I haven't had an UTI infection, so not sure if my stone could be struvite. However, I read that to dissolve the struvite stones, the urine has to be acidified. Does anyone know if lemon juice acidifies the urine? Same with ACV? Thanks for any input.

I drink fresh squeezed lemon juice every day, in addition I cook with massive amounts of lemon and olive oil, I supplement acv daily and viola, I presently have 3 stones. There is certainly not any truth to this, or I would not have them.

This remedy was a BIG NAY for me unfortunately. I tried this every night for a week. As dreadful as it was, swallowing the oil, I thought anything was better than having surgery and stents again. I was even drinking an additional two oz. of lemon juice in the morning. I couldn't tell if I had any success or not until last night when after doing some heavy duty cleaning all day long a had blood in my urine again. That is how I discovered these five stones four weeks ago in the first place. My urologist is sending me to a specialist at Georgetown hospital because I just had three large stones removed a year ago.

So this will be my fourth time with stones since 2001 and I really hoped that the lemon and oil was going to work for me but it just didn't. I thought it sounded to good to be true and perhaps it works for some people, just not me. : (

I tried 3oz of Lemon Juice and 3oz Virgin Olive Oil to help pass my 5mm kidney stone. It stayed in me for 2 hours until I threw it all up. Not trying that again!
