I've had ongoing back pain for a few weeks now and thought it was just a pulled muscle, that's until the pain got severely worse. With my husbands insistence I finally went to the emergency room yesterday. The CT scan showed that I have a 3 mm stone in each kidney. The pain meds they prescribed are not working, and I'm not getting any sleep. So, I decided to try a home remedy which led me to Earth Clinic. I took my first dose of lemon and olive oil mixture this afternoon ....and right now I'm PAIN FREE!!!! I can't believe it. Next dose, tonight before bed. I hope it helps me sleep through the night...stay tuned!
Hi all. I read through most of everyone's posts and I signed up for this site just to post my results. It worked!! Or something did, but I passed my stone about 30 minutes ago after drinking my 2nd cocktail of lemon juice and olive oil with a side of water after. It did the trick. A few minutes later I felt all the symptoms I read about, such as having the sensation to pee but not being able to, and having a bit of a burning sensation in my penis, but not too bad. I have to say, whether it was just time for it to pass, or all the water I drank the past 2 days or the cocktail, I am very relieved to have gotten it out. It was 4 mm in size I was told by the emergency room doctor on Monday morning after they did the cat scan. And like everyone else, I woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain. It was on my left side, not my back at all, between my abdomen and hip. I drove myself to the hospital, driving thru some red lights after looking to see no one was around and was thinking I was going to pass out. I was moaning so loud in the bed in my room in the emergency room area they had to come in and tell me to control myself. I will say that while the pain was something I do not ever want to have to go thru again, it was not the worst I have ever encountered. Once when I was hiking back down a mountain, I sprained my knee on a fall, but did not know it. There was so much snow on the mountain and I was cold and bundled up so really did not know. Anyway, after hiking all the way down, on the ride home, my knee started hurting and it got worse and worse. It took me a while to put 2 and 2 together that it was from my fall. But once we got home, it was so bad, I was literally crying in pain. I have never cried before from pain and I think I almost passed out. Anyway, this stone was almost as bad but not quite. The sprained knee being walked on down a mountain was a 12 out of 10. The stone was a 10 out of 10 pain threshold. Just glad it is out.

2 oz lemon juice and 2 oz olive oil did the trick for me. Rushed to the emergency room with worst pain of my life, tests showed I had a 3mm stone. Morphine in the ER and Norco to take at home. I was taking the pain pill every 2 hours and then found this remedy. I downed the whole 4 oz at once and almost immediately the pain was gone. I never had to take another pain pill and the next morning the stone passed -- caught it in the strainer they gave me at the ER. BTW - after I took the 4 oz at once, I read on to see that most sites recommend drinking it a little at a time to avoid nausea... probably a good idea.
I had a non-obstructive 6mm lower pole calyceal stone detected by ultrasound and was referred to a urologist who was sure I was a surgical candidate because of where it was. Mine wasn't trying to pass and only caused a little pain from time to time. I read all of the posts on this site, but no one had my situation - a stone that was just sitting there in a calyx and not trying to pass...
My urologist sent me for a low-dose CT scan and in the 3-4 days before I went, I took the lemon juice & olive oil remedy about 4 times over 3 days in an attempt to dissolve it. I also drank a LOT of heavily concentrated lemon water (50% lemon)and did a shot or two of apple cider vinegar. When I got my CT scan results today, the doctor was surprised and said, "That's why we do a CT because the ultrasound showed a 6 mm stone! " All I have now, after my Earth Clinic lemon juice/olive oil remedy, is a few teeny tiny kidney stone spots ("punctate calculi") that I shouldn't even feel as they pass! She recommended I continue with the lemon juice to maintain alkalinity and a stone-free kidney.
I have had chronic kidney stones for over 30 years. I was cranking out so many that the Mayo clinic was studying me. They finally decided I had an overactive parathyroid gland which they surgically removed, and my calcium levels returned to normal. But I kept getting stones... Since I'm very active and don't "need extra calcium for strong bones" I cut out all foods and vitamins with calcium added and it helped.
Over the years I started to notice a pattern of what I had ingested about 6 months earlier that seemed to create stones. I came to the conclusion that Tylenol, and probably other medications were causing the stones. There is a nice little mouse trap. The medication doctors gave me to deal with the pain of the stones were causing more stones... So I cut out ALL medications and I have never been healthier! Its hard to do since we are being constantly bombarded by advertising that says we need all these drugs!
After being talked into a Hep C treatment that I didn't need, I've come to realize that most Doctors are not our friends... They are pharmaceutical drug pushers! One of my truisms of life is don't trust anyone who stands to profit from their own advice! When I had health insurance the Doctors found all kinds of things that needed help. Now that I don't have health insurance I'm very healthy... Funny how that works.
I've come to realize that the medical industrial complex is just another shameful predatory business. By regularly taking "medicine" you inhibit the immune systems ability to heal itself, thus making you dependent, addicted in fact, on taking more drugs. And then the drugs have side effects, requiring more drugs. Have you seriously looked at the side effects of medicines? Its actually much worse than that!
It's the new warfare for profit but has the advantage of slowly bleeding the patients life savings away, and keeping the property intact... If we don't pay the extortion fee of high insurance premiums, we could be driven into bankruptcy... Since we pay these high insurance premiums, we feel like we should be using it, which keeps us unhealthy and entangled in legal drug addiction...
A week ago I started to feel discomfort in my right kidney, and my urine was darker meaning there was probably blood in it, and I was chronically tired. I read many responses here ranging from people passing sand, stone(s) or nothing at all by trying the lemon juice and olive oil method, some taking days and some weeks. I believed it all because no one was trying to sell me anything...
My right kidney was starting to block up when I did the first treatment, but I knew the big pain was coming... For a couple of hours I still felt blocked up, but the next morning felt fine, and by the end of the day my urine was clearer and my energy level got much stronger. I haven't passed any stones or sand yet, which seems to be in the range of what people experience. I do believe the people who did a proper scientific study by doing X rays before and after showing, to the amazement of the doctors, no stones!
It is sad and pathetic to think that I have spent tens of thousands of dollars, and countless hours in pain when such a simple solution works. Don't trust anyone who profits from their own advice. Don't regularly put anything in your mouth that is not food.

I have had difficulties with kidney stones for the past 10 years. I had to undergo emergency surgery 3 months ago to have a .8mm stone removed from my ureter. I recently had lithotripsy on one of my kidneys. I have passed some very small stones, but I felt the painful presence of at least one stone stuck in my bladder. After about 2 weeks of it floating around and periodically jabbing me, I finally relented and tried the olive oil and lemon juice remedy, which I had successfully used in the past. But, I was not certain if it truly worked or was just coincidence. Now I am convinced!!! IT WORKS!!!!!!! Within 4 hours of drinking the remedy I passed not one, but THREE kidney stones of increasing size. THANK YOU FOR THIS WEBSITE AND POSTINGS!

Yes, olive oil and lemon juice does work for kidney stones. I've already had surgery once (on my first stone, 6mm) and was searching for a home remedy when I saw a Duke doctor recommend lemon juice for kidney stones.
While I've only taken straight lemon juice once (my stomach didn't like it), I've found that natural lemonade mixed with 1/2-1 full lemon's juice per serving almost immediately takes away the pain. It's really almost unbelievable.
If I do this regularly the pain goes away for quite some time, weeks. Probably as well as the stone. But I always end up having to revert back to this again. Some people form kidney stones faster than others and my diet of no water surely forms mine quickly. Plus I have a high oxalate diet that I cannot do without. Well, and the fact that mother has passed many as well as my grandpa.
My next step is to try the master cleanse to really give my stones the one- two punch. It's a fast of organic made lemonade and is known to dissolve gallstones as well as other things
Please note that most people don't recommend lemonade over lemon juice due to the high amount of sugar. But this is what I've used and it is in the very least the best pain reliever if not kidney stone destroyer I've found.
Lemon and Olive oil for kidney stones
3 days ago. Mine hit me like a ton of bricks. One day I was fine the next day flat on my back, with Hydrocodone, Advil, and a valium not even TOUCHING the pain. I knew what it was just through evaluation although I had never had the pleasure of experiencing one. Everything they say is true. I had to crawl to the bathroom the pain was so severe. Started researching as a last ditch attempt before going to the ER, followed by CAT scan and all the other lovely goings on that I knew would follow. :/ Earth Clinic has been a go to site for me for a decade now and has never failed me. Fell onto the Lemon/Olive oil suggestion and immediately tried it. By this time it was evening of the first day. Woke up next day, "thought" it felt a little better...did another round of it that morning...followed by a 2nd round before bed. Next day felt 80% better!!!! Followed same routine. Today (3rd day), I can barely feel it. Will continue this protocol until it disappears completely. ?? To my knowledge, I haven't passed anything or was so small I wasn't aware of it. The progression feels more like to me that it's dissolving (?). Is anyone aware of what the technical principle is behind how this works ? (which it obviously does..?) as in say, what role does the Olive oil play? Can Ted explain it, I would love to know his thoughts on it. Thanks AGAIN Earth Clinic. You are a life saver!!
I had been diagnosed w/a 4mm kidney stone in the hospital ER via CTscan. Dr gave me pain killers & naseau medicine-that's it. Went to Uroligist 2 days later-he gave me Flomax-no results. I found this site here & gave the olive oil & lemon juice a try. 3 days later I'm totally pain free! I haven't seen a stone yet, so I'm guessing it got dissolved by the oolj mixture. Like Drano for kidney stones!
THIS IS SO CRAZY! This is my 3rd round with Kidney stones, came upon this article and read about the remedy of lemon juice and olive oil?
Was already scheduled for surgery, tried the remedy for 2 days and past it and with zero pain, just plain amazing, just want to thank everyone for their feedback...you guys cured me!
Thank you, Any advice on a weekly remedy to keep them from coming back?

Definitely YEA, because I was diagnosed with a 6mm kidney stone which they said was borderline for treatment. So they sent me home after giving me a pain killing jab. At home , in desperation I found earth clinic and this cure And took two doses of the 2oz lemon/olive oil on 2 consecutive days.
I found that this immediately stopped the pain so that all I felt was pressure and discomfort. After a couple of weeks that went too.
Now, 8 weeks later , I have just been for X-ray and the doctor was astounded that it was gone, but also that I had not passed it . The lemon and olive oil must have somehow dissolved it! In his disbelief he is sending me for a CT scan to make sure its gone, but I know it has because I have no symptoms at all .
Earth clinic is a fab idea. I am now going to try some of the hot flash cures too!
My journey began over 4 months ago. On vacation I ended up in the er with my first stone 8mm. After cutting my vacation short I returned home to see the urologist . He informed that the odds were against me passing the rock but it is safe to give it a try. Fresh squeezed lemons as much as I could stand and buckets of water. My pain was at a minimum most of the time. 2 months later and 2 x rays the stone was gone. The urologist said I had to know I passed something that big but I did not. I thought that was its end of my ks saga but no not yet. 6 weeks later back in the er with a ct scan and what they said was 11mm stone that was hidden. Urologist wanted another kub that showed a 8mm stone , the same stone, he said. I began the apple cider vinegar twice a day for 3 days. Then tried lemon and olive oil for 2 days and was preparing to have it blasted with lithotripsy on Monday. I felt like I was being rushed through the entire process so I canceled the litho and got a second opinion. Now after a ultra sound I was informed that I am stone free. My new urologist assured me that none of the home remedies would help but I passed a 8mm stone on my own. Still don't know when I passed the bastard and I don't care. Thank God it's over. 4 months and 2 weeks 6 kub's 1 ct scan and 1 ultra sound. 48 hours away from a procedure I didn't need. Get a second opinion. It saved me from unnecessary surgery and stress. Keep the faith.
I was reading all the great results people have with the olive oil and lemon juice mix when having kidney stones. I do have a 5mm stone coming down my ureter, I was told my ureter is narrow due to some scar tissue I developed after a previous surgery. (no kidney or ureter related).. My question is: have anybody in this group try to pass the stone with OOLJ having a narrow ureter? Any suggestions? Thanks!
I stumbled across this site after returning home from the emergency room the other day diagnosed with a 3.6 mm kidney stone. I was not even searching for home remedies, I was searching for an image of what the stone might look like. Thank God for Earth Clinic! I tried the lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil remedy at 5pm the day after returning home from the ER. The stone passed WITHOUT ANY PAIN at 1pm the following day. Am going to search this site for some other ailments that have been troubling me. Thank you Earth Clinic!
