Lemon juice and olive oil for kidney stones definitely works- took my husband to the ER they gave him morphine sent him home with prescription for oxycodone - he had to take two at a time to manage the pain- meds were running out and I found this website, thank God.

2oz of lemon juice with 2 oz of olive oil did the trick. Took one dose at night and the other at 10am next morning -went 24hrs without pain. Well, it wore off and he was hurting- gave him the mixture again and a dose of oxycodone- he went thru the night with no pain and still no pain.

So it works but it will wear off so you have to keep taking it.

I have had urology problems for many years, and have had lithotripsy twice for separate stones. On both occasions the surgical method was successful for bladder stones. On both occasions the stone has sat in the bladder and has behaved like a float, and blocked off the urethra stopping urine flow.The first time caused intense pain, "epididymitis orchitis" and and septicemia. The reason this happened in the first place was because I had a urethral stricture in the early 90's.

Urologists sorted this by grafting skin from my leg to create a new and enlarged urethra. Now with this treatment you would think it was "job done" but it was if anything the cause of my "epididymitis orchitis" in 2009. The cause was the skin graft in the 90's had hair follicles which grew internally through the urethra and thus restricting flow, retaining urine and over time creating a 10cm stone which suddenly started to release toxins and produce immense pain. I had a repeat of the same in 2010 which was sorted by lithotripsy and the hair inside the urethra was all burned away by laser treatment.

Now I have a new stone and as before the stone settles at the neck of the urethra or somewhere close by. The position stops the urine flow by acting as a stopper. When laying down the stone rests on the nerves around the edge of the bladder which is damn uncomfortable as I always think I need a wee.

Anyway, I do not relish the thought of yet another hospital stay so have been looking at your pages and "cures" concerning this. I have been using the olive oil/lemon juice option and can report very good results so far with the stone quite obviously breaking down and being expelled as gravel. I am encouraged by the results so far and I will update some more in next few days. I set out to try anything that saves the surgical intervention. Watch this space!! The image is exactly how my bladder stone is.

Just a quick note. I found this site while searching for relief from this 5mm painful kidney stone. I have been fighting with this since November 2014. It is now July 16,2015 and I started yesterday at 6:30 pm and twice did the 2 oz each of virgin olive oil and lemon juice. I could hardly get a couple of table spoons of urine out yesterday. After consuming this mixture twice, 6:30 pm and 10:00 pm. I was up every thirty minutes until 1:30 with a good urine stream and NO PAIN!!! I am so amazed. Will post when stone is passed. I am so amazed. I have been on meds from the doctor off and on since November one to open up the tubes and one for pain. This beat all of that hands down.. I am so looking forward to this stone going away...

Hi! I just started this lemon juice & olive oil remedy this past week due to symptoms of a possible kidney stone. All i can say so far is that when i get pain in my lower back and around by abdominal, it goes away after drinking this mix. I am still waiting for stone to pass. I really hate this feeling and it is quite frustrating.

Thank you so much for the info I am 25 years old and had my first round with kidney stones. When the back pains first started I called my mother for advice she told me there was little that could be done save going to the doctor and since I am unemployed I did not want to go unless I was in so much pain I could not stand it. Then after dealing with the pain for a over a week (during which time I got married) I got online and searched for some home remedies. I found this site and tried the Olive Oil and Lemon juice coctail after doing 2 a day for the last three days. I have passed a few and the pain is getting better. Thank you guys so much for the help.

06/07/07 Saw lemon juice/olive oil mix on line and decided to try. I have had 8 invasive proceedures since 1992. There are over 20 stones in left kidney and 15 in right. Lithotripsy, grabbing and laser have not worked. I have passed one stone in 15 years. The drink wasn't bad at all. Within 5 minutes 95% of the pain was gone. Five minutes later I was running to the toilet where I spent the better part of the night with burning diarhia. It's been 12 hours and I still have diarhia and the pain is still subdued. I am concerned about another 2/2 drink as I am afraid I will end up dehydrated from the massive fluids coming out. Lemon Juice/Olive Oil definately relieves the pain, just stay close to the toilet!

Wasssup peoples, to those that have kidney stones or had them should know about the agonizing pain.One day I was at work and all of the sudden I felt a sharp pain in my lower left side of my back and then the next day the right side was hurting like hell.I didn't know what to do. I went to see a kidney specialist and he told me that I had kidney stones and that scared the living daylights out of me.For about the next two years or so I dealt with the pain It kept me in and out of work so I just couldn't take it no more.So I 've browsed almost every site about kidney stones(this was 1/10/07) and found this site. At first I was like yeah right so I just figured might as well try something since I don't have insurance.tried the lemon juice and olive oil about 9:30a.m 1/10/07,about half an hour later the pain was gone!!!!.I was surprised but still aint passed the damn stone yet.I've took about three doses in one day and it still aint passed but my urine looked kind of grainy.So it's 01/11/07 took another dose at 9:00 this morning hoping to pass the thing,but I know one thing the pain is gone for now.Somebody wish me luck!!
