I am happy to read of anyone finding relief from kidney stones. I also know of a remedy that learned from a very old book I have. This has worked for for four people that I have shared it with. Get some Queen of the Medow (also called Jo Pye Weed ) root. This plant grows wild in many areas of the country. IT can be purchased at some health food stores and can be found on Ebay. It is very, very cheap. Take some of this root and make a tea. Only one cup and they will pass. One friend of mine had suffered for two years with these and even in and out of the hospital. One day while he was at my house he asked me to look in this old book to see if anything was in it about kidney stones and this is where I saw this cure. It is a old Native American remedy. The next day my friend called me and told me he made a cup of this tea and about 45 min after drinking it he passed them. This has been over eight years ago and he has had no problems since.

First day, take 2 or 3 times a day then you will see immediate result. no pain, and stone will break down in little pieces. You will not even notice that it came out. Very effective and fast solution for kidney stone.

Hello world, my experiences with kidney stones... To make my story short, I got caught without insurance with a stone attack. Then I remembered the local herb shop, barely walked in, bent over and in pain. Talked with the herbalist and she gave me hydrangea root with marshmallow root. Went straight home and took as directed. Within 7 minutes the pain was gone, and over the next few days, it was like small grains of sand passed in my urine. The stones were dissolved by the hydrangea root, the marshmallow root coats the urinary tract to let the granules slip out. All for about $25 bucks!! ! :)

I have hyperparathyroidism and had excruciating painful kidney stones. I did some research and I put one heaping tablespoon of marshmallow root (dried) in a mug with room temperature filtered water and let it infuse for 3 hours. I strain it and I then slightly warm it in a pan,( it tastes better if you warm it), not microwave. I was drinking it once every day until I was feeling better. I had a few more stones on and off but there was absolutely no pain! I drink it about once every month as a tonic. I haven't had any more stones. Hurray!(you can get marshmallow root at your health food store)

Kidney stones can be dissolved by eating and drinking Parsley. No remedy - just soak in hot water and drink eat the leaves.

A wonderful herb to dissolve stones is hydrangea, it comes in capsules. It will break up the stones into smaller more easily passed pieces. It is very helpful for relieving the pain during a kidney stone attack. Take 6 capsules 3-4 times per day, even up to 10 at a time if you are in extreme pain, or try take 2-3 each hour. Continue taking them for a couple weeks, then try the olive oil/lemon juice to flush them out. You don't want to flush them out too early and cause more pain, try to dissolve them first. At about $10 a bottle it is an inexpensive, but very effective solution for your kidney stones. I have used this on several occasions for stones, the first time I was in so much pain I could hardly move, but within 30 minutes of my first dose of hydrangea the pain started to subside to a manageable level.

Another potential cure.

My wife has had kidney stones since before I met her. The first one she had (with the excruciating pain!) was the size of a mothball and was on an xray and was diagnosed on a friday. They were going to do either a cat scan or an mri (I never remember) on the following monday to get a better ideal on what she had.

She went online and found multiple instances of parsley and parsley tea, so she made a big pot of tea using three bunches of flat leaf italian parsley. She drank it over the weekend and by monday she was pain free.
When she had the test done, they couldn't find anything and kept going back and forth between the xray and the latest scan and also asking her name to verify the xray. They told her that there must have been dirt on the xray and she asked what the pain was that she had then.

She then told them what she had done and after being confused and saying that it couldn't have helped, they basically told her that she was not telling the truth, Since then, she has had kidney stone type pain and each time she has done parsley tea and in a couple of days she is pain free.

And since a dozen years ago I had a kidney stone (8mm) and had lithotripsy to get rid of it, I will do parsley tea if I ever have kidney stone pain again I will drink a lot of parsley tea.

I wanted to add another remedy to your list for kidney stones. I'm still not sure why this one is not getting out there to the people as quick as it should, since it is such a fast and reliable fix. So, I would like to suggest Banaba Tea.(crepe myrtle) I buy mine from the overseas, though I have seen herbal shops online in the US carry it as well. Japan, the Phillipines, and others primarily use it for diabetes control. I guess that because that is such a big deal, they tend to forget what it originally was used for by people and that was kidney stone relief and other kidney ailments. It's fast thank goodness! Not only do I use it, but many friends and family also. It's much better than the regretfull look doctors give you as they hand you pain pills and pat you on the back to say good luck when they send you home to pass one the old fashion way!

Shockingly enough, not only does it dissolve the problem stone but anyone that was sent home with a strainer will be shocked at just how much other potential stone minerals they had in their kidneys as well, when they begin seeing what looks like clumps of wet sugar in their strainer!

One word though, some care does have to be taken on where you buy it from. I have tried to save some money before and ended up with tea that did nothing for me.

Thanks, Melissa

Dissolve kidney stones in 3 days-no pain. you need:
Day 1
6 limes
4 liters water (16 cups)
alfala tablets

Mix limes w/water drink throughout the day. Every waking hour take 2 alfalfa tablets.

Days 2&3
throughout the day drink same amount of water-no limes and same amount of tablets. Simple. Avoid all caffine products including chocolate during this cleanse. I did a liver cleanse w/o cleansing kidneys first-I couldn't stand up straight for a week...after finding this cleanse, I've never had a problem since.

Olive Oil worked on my current kidney stones,, I mean I believe it flushed everything out and I also took Hydranga,,4 capsules 3 times a day with food. Also marshmallow root helps, plus a gallon a day of water with 1 cup lemon juice, that dissolved the stones in about a week..Hydranga dissolves all type of stones. But I also think that everyone out there should use a LOW OXALATE DIET. It confirms what doctors are now saying. That foods high in Oxalate content cause kidney stones. This is from the University of Pittsburgh, Medical Center. I find that when I do eat the foods that are low in Oxalates I have no kidney pain. Luck to all

I have Kidney stones, and from what I understand 3 really big ones. And from time to time they remind me that they're there.I had a stent put in about a year ago, to keep me from being, corked up like a champagne bottle by my kidney stones.And at times I will see a little black grain come out.And if I'm not looking, I will miss it. Because the stent allows the little bits that break off from the kidney stones, to pass easily and pain free. However, this only happens a very little bit at a time. (Small pieces breaking off from the stone ). So, after many searches and keywords. I came across CHANCA PIEDRA and went straight to eBay to order so of the dry out herb and a tea infuser. So that I would be able to make tea from it. I also have been marketing Ginger Root tea for a few weeks prior to ordering CHANCA PIEDRA. So now, I find myself having to make two different teas, two different ways, in two different cups. Than drinking two times the amount of liquid. And on top of all that two times the amount of trips to the restroom. Not so bad for my condition and when I'm at home. But, when I go to work, well this can kinda be a bother....😲 So, what I like to know if anyone can help is.... can I mixs the two teas together and still receive the full health benefit from both tees, when mixed together. I don't necessarily need to brew the two together.Only after making the tea from each ingredient then taking them and mixing them together . Well I still receive the full health benefit from each when mixing them together. I feel that this would not only be convenient but, I would only have too store in one jar and take less trips to the restroom. However, if mixing together after brewing the two teas is going to deplete any of the health benefits from either one. Than I will continue making the teas as is. And drinking them about 1hrs after each other. I know that running to the restroom many times is good. Not only for pushing out kidney stones. But, it's also good for the fleshing out and cleansing of the kidneys. However, like I said their is times that this can be a bother. Not only just at work but, at night when trying to sleep.The first two nights I started drinking to two. I was up every 45 minutes to 1hour going pee. So, any knowledge any one may have about this please . I would love to hear from you. Thank you Dave

I had blood in my urine for 3 weeks, and urologist suggested having surgery to remove the kidney stone. Stone never showed up on CT scan or x-ray but I was having pain so he believed there was a stone. I decided to not opt for the surgery and sought advice from a naturopath.

I was told to start drinking 5 cups of cleavers tea a day. I should note that I did do the olive oil/lemon juice flush that same morning. The first day of drinking the tea the pain episodes lessened and I did not need to take my pain meds after that. Every day the pain got better. When the pain came it was in my urethra like a faint stabbing pain instead of in my back so I knew it was working its way out. Then a week after drinking the tea, I felt a quick pinch while urinating and then it was over. I saw a stone in the toilet, which I captured, and measured at 8 mm and was told it would not pass without surgery. I am to say that it will.

I had kidney stones and every 3 yrs they would develop... So I began drinking alot of water with baking soda in it.. Since that helps the water be more drinkable if you have hard water. Anyway the baking soda changes the pH of the body so that stones can disolve. Mine were the size of a 50 cent piece so I didn't think it would do any good.

I also took 10 alfalfa every 3 hrs.. As that also helps the pH. On Tues was told these stones needed to be blasted.. Was to be back on following Tues.. And cat scan did not show any stones at all. You can be sure I was very happy about that. Now I have the other kind of stones.... Calcium type.. And the others were Uric acid type. So am trying the olive oil and lemon for these. Am sure it will work... because of many examples on the site.

Years ago my mom had a kidney stone and she got rid of it drinking tea brewed from hazelnut leaves, put a few leaves in 1 liter boiling water, turn off the stove and cover the pot for 5-10 minutes, strain and drink that all day long, keep refrigerated, you will get rid of your stone in a week. You can do the same procedure with flax seeds, but before put them in the water bake them in the oven just for a minute to crack the seeds open, this one will purify your kidneys... Good Luck!
