Today is Sunday, April 22,2007.. I am in Pain as we speak. I have tried the Lemon juice and Olive oil 3 times now, every other day. The pain seems to be moving from my back, to my scrotum , to the groin, burning in the penis. ANT SUGGESTIONS?? I tried the coke and asparagus, and it did dissolve a 9mm about 2 yrs ago. But it takes 2-3 hrs of time, and I am on the run lately. Email me if you wish..

As a toxicologist I have a strong background in biochemistry, physiology, etc. and could not see why or how the lemon juice/olive oil remedy for kidney stones could work. However, I did not think it could do any harm either so, since I was hurting, I gave it a try. It was not unpleasant to drink and did not upset my stomach as some have reported. Unfortunately, it did not move my stone either. Oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained.

I took this concoction (2oz lemon juice, 2 oz olive oil followed by 2 8 oz glasses of water( on tues at about 9pm,and now it is Thursday 9----AM and nope no kidney stones passed yet. After about an hour of taking this I had flank pain and still have the flank pain... So I guess maybe it made it move some but not enough :( I'm not one of the lucky ones... Both are tough things to swallow lol.

I tried this mixture of lemon juice & olive oil to alleviate the pain and possibly help pass my stone. Aside from repeating the taste of olive oil continuously for about eight hours, it also made me quite sick to my stomach. I fought off several attempts to heave the whole thing back up. After enduring an entire night of non-stop stomach turbulence, I was rewarded with a very good case of the runs. Not an overall pleasant experience, and more than 34 hours later I still have my stone. Oh, and the pain that evening was later controlled by tylenol with codeine.

When in pain, people will have a go at just about any remedy to eliminate it. A lthough the idea of taking 2 oz of olive oil and equivalent of freshly squeezed lemon juice didn't appeal to me but after reading the positive responses it sounded like the fix I was after. I presently have a 6 mm kidney stone blocking one ureter which has been well and truly stuck for 2 weeks. I have had them before but the last was in the early 1980s. Living in the tropics (and the southern hemisphere) the onset of each tropical summer usually results in dehydration and an increase in the reporting of kidney stones. I'm a casualty. After each kidney stone attack the stone is only moving fractions of a inch and causing significant bleeding with the result that for half a day afterwards my urine is practically pure blood and then blood clots. Not sure how serious this is, as a nose bleed can look pretty horrendous with blood loss and it is certainly not too much to worry about. CAT scans and x-rays have shown that the stone is hardly moving at all and the next step will be some sort of intervention to eliminate it. As a last hope of avoiding this I have been searching for remedies. I took the mixture of olive oil and lemon juice for 3 nights in a row right before going to bed. Although feeling extreme nausea I managed to keep the concoction down through the night. By the fourth morning I had had enough. I didn't appear to do anything. I didn't really understand how this remedy was going to work giving that it was likely to acidify the bodily fluids and make things worst. The use of olive oil also escapes me, certainly wouldn't act as a lubricant at the level of the urinary tract. As other comments have noted, although there are different chemical composition of kidney stones, the previous ones I had were calcium based and the best approach for these is to alkalize ones bodily fluids, not acidify them. So I am onto sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) at a dose of 3.5 g, dissolved in a glass of water, three times a day. I haven't had an attach for 3 days now and the urine is very cloudy, which I suppose could indicate that stones might be dissolving. The jury is still out.

The olive oil and lemon juice didn't work at all. I was really hoping with all my heart it would work. I drank the vile liquid and nothing changed. A KUB showed my stone was still in the same place, (right above the bladder) as it was before. I go in in 2 days to have it surgically removed. I'm tired of playing around with this stone.

This didn't work for me and I was really disappointed. It didn't taste bad so I'm prepared to try again.

I have had a kidney stone for about a month. (confirmed by X-ray) I mixed 2 oz of lemon juice with 2 oz olive oil. Whipped together, it didn't taste too bad at all. I repeated dose again in 24 hours. It's been 15 hours since my last dose, and the stone is still with me. I'm going to try tea brewed from a plant called Chamberbitter.

The lemon juice and olive oil did not cure me. I am desperate, I have a rather large Kidney stone in my left Kidney and I have already gone through one Lithotripsy and the Urologist says I should have another. NO WAY!! I am trying the natural remedies now but nothing seems to dissolve that stone! I am almost to the end of the wait and see period I go back on 16 May 2006 I would love to should him that there are other ways. HELP! I have some vascular concerns that I was born with that I am very worried about with another Lithostripsy, I also cannot afford to pay huge amounts of money to find an alternative way to dissolve this stone.
