I'm 28 weeks pregnant with my first child and a couple of months ago I woke up with excruciating pain emanating from my kidney. Since kidney stones run in my family, I'm pretty sure that's what it was. The pain went away and then this morning around 4:30 a.m. I had severe pain in my stomach (poor baby), and back. At first I thought I was going into pre-term labor but after I calmed down I realized they weren't contractions. I was not about to go to the E. R. and have them probe and prod me and cause me to go into labor, so I calmed down, and just dealt with the pain as best as could. And the baby was kicking like crazy during all of this, I hope he didn't get hurt.
I just now drank the Olive Oil & Lemon Juice mixture, 2 oz. of each, with a few sips of lemonade in between to keep from gagging. It wasn't so bad, I'm just worried what's going to happen with my ulcer now. I'd much rather deal with ulcer pain than kidney stone pain anyday. If this doesn't work I'm going to wait 24 hours and do the Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with honey concoction. Thanks for all your comments! I really appreciate this information:) Good luck to everyone!
My husband found that he had a 3mm kidney stone in an ER. The doctor said he should be able to pass the stone with the help of a medication that helps dialate the ureter. An ER nurse suggested that we look up lemon juice on internet as she heard that it could help prevent kidney stone. My husband took the medicine for 4 days, drank lots of water mixed with some lemon juice, while suffering from severe pain, nausea, fever, chills, but there was no sign of stone.
Then I found this website and decided to try the recipe right away. I mixed 2 oz lemon juice with 2 oz olive oil. My husband drank it and followed by a big glass of water. Amazingly, the next day he passed the stone. The stone broke into smaller pieces. We're so thankful that we found this website and the recipe. Good luck to all who have kidney stones.
I have been suffering with painful kidney stones for 4 months that the doctor kept saying "it will pass". I was miserable. I had read about this remedy, but since it really makes no sense to me I never tried it. However, I finally caved in and did the olive oil/lemon juice mixture twice per day starting yesterday. By this morning the bladder spasm and pain was greatly improved and this afternoon I had some mucus come out with my urine. About an hour later out came that darn stone! Who knows how it works or if it is coincidence, but I am very happy the pain in gone.

A big "thank you" to the author of this remedy! My first bout of kidney stones was on Easter Sunday 2005 at the age of 43 - I didn't know if I had injured my back, burst my appendix, or had kidney stones. In extreme pain, my wife rushed me to the hospital's ER where a long ridiculous process started. To make a long story short, a CT scan found a lodged 4mm stone between my left kidney and urthea and after 2 nights of being drugged up on morphine and an IV drip continuosly going, I left the hospital still in pain. The stone did eventually pass.
Over the next few years I experienced passive kidney stones now and then with little discomfort - until yesterday - another full blown pain in the kidney area radiating to my back doubling me over. Not wanting to go though the 14K hospital fiasco again, I did research and as luck would have it, found this site.
The bout started at about 7:00PM, came and subsided in waves of 5~10 minutes apart - I hadn't eaten dinner yet so nausea wasn't too bad. At 8:00PM I drank the 2oz olive oil / 2oz lemon juice concoction - within a few hours the waves of pain lessoned. I drank 5 tall glasses of water during this whole time and was urinating every hour throughout the night. By morning the pain was gone - and by noon today I was back to normal.
I never would have thought a remedy like this would stop such a severe pain!

I went to the hosptial on 6 30 2011 with back pain with a mri test I was told I had a 6.2mm kidney stone, I was giving pain meds and sent home. Two days later a friend told me of this home remedy of 2oz of olive oil and 2oz of 100% lemon juice followed by water. I was still in pain taking pain meds and did the remady again and as of today 7 24 2011 went pee and there it was a 6.2 mm stone, so the remedies must work. I have a picture to prove it I've been dealing with stones for years and first time I ever passed one that big without medical help.
I am so happy I found this site. I had a kindey stone pass from my kidney with alot of blood and pain and on it's way out it got stuck. I did what the doctor told me... Had to return twice in the course of the following 2 1/2 months and I had pain daily. I was taking pain pills that helped very little and drinking alot of water and I kept believing it would pass as the doctor said but it just got worse and when I had to urinate I sometimes had a sensation of tiny little knives stabbing me after I finished... OUCH! I was ready to go back a fourth time and it was a depressing thought because I now expected no results and since it was stuck I was reading about the alternate method of getting the stone to pass and it was not something to look forward to so I tried the olive oil and lemon juice gladly... Took it twice the first day and the next morning I drank another one (not as bad tasting as one would expect! )... And an hour or so later it passed! NO MORE PAIN! I am so thrilled... Thanks you so much for this site and for the advice!

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.

Hi All, I was in a car accident and went in for an XRay to check if all was in order, only to find out that I had kidney stones in my left kidney - 12mm and 8mm lodged at the bottom of the kidney. My Urologist indicated that I needed surgery (PNL) to remove these stones.
I got onto Google about 6days ago and found the lemon and olive oil treatment as well as the Coke and Asparagus treatment. Last Thursday night I started with the Lemon and Olive (60ml Lemon Juice and 60ml Olive oil), about 30minutes later I felt the pain on my left flank starting to ease off. Friday monring I went to the supermaket and bought a dozen fresh lemons and by mid morning a had another doze of lemon and olive oil (60ml each), followed by 2 tablespoon of the mixture every 15min, and drank heaps of lemonade.
On Saturday morning I switched to the coke and asparagus regime (I read somewhere to use both these combinations). So I had 6 diet cokes every 20mins followed by a can of asaparagus (mashed) and follwed this up with 2litres of distilled water.
By Saturday night (09:30), I started to see some soft, white-coloured debris in my urine (from 1mm through to 3mm). On Sunday morning squeezed 6 lemons and had this straight up, followed by water (in total I had about 20litres of water from Thursday night).
It is now Monday morning, and I am still passing out bits and pieces of debris in my urine, and the pain is almost gone - I am sure this treatment has solved my problem. I am planning to continue with the lemon treatment for the rest of the week and have a Ultra Sound next week to check the status, will keep you posted. A big thanks you to all of those that have contributed to this forum and provided this treatment..... God bless.

I was suffering from a 2 mm kidney stone that was right outside my bladder. After a week of pain, I found this website. I mixed the concotion of 2 ounces of lemon juice & 2 ounces of olive oil (which I worked out to be 2 tablespoons of each; 1 oz = 1 tablespoon). Mixed that up and drank it at 11 pm on Saturday night. Then, I started TRYING to drink 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (ACV) with water. YUK!! Instead I diluted 1 tablesoon of ACV in 8 oz of water and drank that. Then did another tablespoon with another 8 oz. That helped to pass it. Drank lots of crystal light and cranberry juice. Last but not least, I went to grocery store and found (of all things) Apple Cider VInegar tablets!!!! bought those and took some of those.
Now it is sunday around 7:15 pm and I feel a little discomfort in my pee area. Felt like I had a urine infection. Went to bathroom and my 2mm kidney stone came out!!! No pain whatsoever!! Soooo happy!!! Now I do not have to go see a urologist to get it removed!! And I can go back to work symptom free. I am ecstatic. Needless to say something of the above worked for me. I say try it at least. All you have to lose is... Well, possibly, a kidney stone!!!
Last Sunday Debbie and Justin were not in the pew behind us in our little country church in East Tn. The Pastor said that Debbie has a kidney stone and her doctor had given her a drug and told her to drink lots of water and come see him on Tuesday.
I call them after church and told them to go to the Earth Clinic site and read what they say.
Got to church today and Debbie hugged my neck and gave me a thank you card. She got immediate relief by drinking lemon juice and olive oil.
The doctor could not find a stone in his tests on Tuesday and canceled the hospital procedure.

Well... Here goes. I'm currently in my 2nd bout with kidney stones, the first being 5 years ago. Last time I just drank tons of water and it was summer. After about 2 weeks of pain, I basically went crazy and started doing mad work around the house and pretty much "sweated" it out... Very painful.
So... It started up again about 6 weeks ago with the typical sign: hematuria. I knew what it was but went and had a CT scan to be sure. Guess what? It was a 4mm stone in ureter. I tried the lemon juice olive oil mix... And didn't really have any issues for a few weeks. Then the pain started up again, much worse this time. I went back for an x-ray and they found 6 stones this time! There were 3 in one ureter and 2 in the other and 1 in the bladder. I wasn't sure if the mix worked originally and that I possibly passed the original stone weeks ago or if it was one of the many new ones. Originally I thought the mix was an "old wives tale" and I had wasted my time, but after visiting this site and seeing all the testimonials it would be foolish to just wait for something to happen or go in for what might be an unnecessary surgery.
I go back to the uruologist on Friday (4 days). I am going to try lemon juice and olive oil mix again (and again) to see if it works for me.
I did notice that when I did it the first time (also drinking a lot of 15% lemon juice lemonaid) my urine seemed to have some grittyness to it, but didn't think too much about it at the time. Was this the 1st stone? Did the mix cause the exodus of the other stones? Of course no one knows, but I am going to see if the lemon juice and olive oil mix works. None of the stones is larger than 2-3mm, so I am thinking that the first stone passed or shrank or broke up. I will update you guys with my progress. Wish me luck and wide ureters (more the latter).

I had a 5mm stone stuck at the entrance to my bladder for the past month. (The pain actually feels much lower) This last week was the worst. Finally used 2 oz lemon juice/2 oz olive oil followed by LOTS of water for two days. Also used a prescription of Rapiflo from my urologist. Stone passed on the third morning. What a relief!
I just want to grab all of you in a biiig hug!!! Thank you for the remedy oo and lemon jus!!! Ater ER and 5 days of excruciating pain my husband is cured. It have taken less than 15 hours for the remedy to crush his 3-4 mm stone which stuck at the end of the tube almost at he entrance in the bladder. It is amazing... And we are so thankful to you all for posting your experiences ( I have read almost all of them in some hours).

For those who are looking for a remedy for kidney stones, please, believe in this one, it helps- give it a try!!!
All the best for all and keep helthy.
After going to the doc and learning I had my first kidney stone, my wife, who is all about natural cures, happened upon this site to learn about the olive oil and lemon juice remedy. When I returned home about 8:30 pm, I set up 3 shot glasses and into each one put half lemon juice and half OO. I downed all 3 in succession, and followed with 2 large glasses of water. After 30 minutes, I downed 1 more shot of the mixture, followed by 1 glass of unsweetened cranberry juice. For every hour after that, I drank another glass of water. By this time my abdomen was huge with liquids, but nothing was coming out- just the usual trickle and then it would stop, despite the urgent feeling of constantly needing to go.
After about 5 hours, I actually had the urge to go No. 2. I got on the throne and pushed for the bowel movement and immediately the stone shot out at the same time and I finally flowed with urination again. I never thought I would take that for granted, but I have a new appreciation for being able to urinate normally.
So Yes, I'm a believer in the OO and lemon juice, so if this feeling ever returns, I'll know exactly what to do.
Thanks to the people on this site who provided the information to get better. I would still be in pain without you!
