Joe, chanca piedra is common in Ghana. It is known in Akan as awoba ato woakyir (hope my spelling is right) in apparent reference to the seeds that hang under the leaves.

HI Cindy...You should be able to buy the chanca piedra herb at any health shop -- its fairly well known. I would either preferably use the the water extract in a tea or drink. Avoid the tablets, capsules and alcoholic tincture forms -- they don't seem to work so well. Try and buy organic for purity's sake. You can also purchase chanca piedra online at or from other sites like

Devon, Uk

Hi Bill,

I just got my delivery of Chanca piedra, and it's in 1000gm capsules! Talk about horse tablets. Is it OK that I opened the capsule, added to a glass of apple juice and then gently heated it. (It stopped the herb bits clumping together). I drank it, bits and all, and it was delicious.

Just hope I didn't do it wrong and it works - I am getting twinges in my left-side bladder and also the place where my gallbladder used to be, but nothing bad.

I think that the alcoholic tincture form of Chanca works fine - at least for me. I had read that it is good for countless things, so I tried it for 5 days. I discharged gobs of mucusy-looking things, as well as other weird-looking "stuff", just for starters. I had read that it does indeed clean this stuff out.

Regarding kidney stones, yes, I would agree that consuming Chanca as a tea is the way to go. In general, different forms of a herb affect different parts of the body.

Wyandotte--the "gobs of mucousy things"...had you been having kidney stone issues, or what do you think those were? I took the Stone Breaker tincture for a week and then two or three days after I quit, I passed a white gob of...something...myself. Hoping it was my stone, but it looked nothing like the stone I passed three years ago..

Hi Jacqui...You needn't worry about overdosing on Chanca Piedra. On the Raintree Database website it states that there is no known dangerous over-dose limit for chanca piedra. I take it all the time. Today I took the cooled concentrated decoction form. It's very bitter for sure. But I felt better for it. I take it because it puts the brake on excessive calcium and sugar in the blood. It also lowers blood pressure, gets rid of stones, supports the kidneys and liver, lowers cholesterol, antiviral and does a bunch of other things for your body that's all good. Just think of Chanca piedra as a good friend. And the way you are taking it is fine, so please don't worry.

Hi Bill, I was diagnosed with hormone positive breast cancer 6 years ago. I am taking Anastrozole to stop hormone production. I have to take calcium the Dr. says the medication will deplete calcium. I also have multiple cysts on both my kidneys. I also have digestive issues, I can go weeks without a bowel movement and when I do I break out in cold sweat and shakes and its very painful.

Do you think it is safe to use Chanca Piedra. If so how much do you recommend. Thank you

Replied by Mary

Diane, I am not Bill, and I don't know why you wish to use Chanca Piedra, but I am concerned about your extreme constipation. This is just keeping toxins circulating in your body.

Please read up on remedies for constipation. And maybe consider carrot juice for constipation and anti-cancer. But don't take it until you have gotten your bowels moving properly.

Bill could you please tell me where I can buy chanka piedra capsule or tea or plant here in philippines, I'm from cavite and positive of hep B virus

Replied by Bill

Regarding purchasing Chanca piedra in the Philippines, you can get it from Healthy Options stores which are normally located in SM malls throughout the Philippines. Here is a link that shows which SM stores have Healthy Options health shops in the Philippines:

You can also buy the fresh chanca piedra from Quiapo Market in Manila (probably much cheaper) near Quiapo Church in Quezon City.

I'm afraid I haven't much of a clue about India. But here's what I would do. Visit an Ayurvedic or Unani healer -- they will almost certainly have chanca piedra -- and purchase chanca piedra from then. I would also think that the health shops in the Indian malls would definitely sell it too.

In both the hot lowlands of India and the Philippines, Chanca piedra grows wild as a profuse weed. So if you can recognize the plant, you can get it for free. Just make a decoction or a tea from the whole plant (including the roots) and drink this several times a day everyday. Chanca piedra has one unique feature that no other plant has -- it's flowers and seeds are situated along and under the leaf petiole. That's why CP is also called "Seed-Under-Leaf". Here is a picture of the CP plant.

Best regards, Bill :)

Hi , I've tried contacting Healthy Options (manila branches) and it seems they haven't heard it nor do they have stocks for these herbs. They even had a hard time understanding its name. Can you suggest where else can I find it as a tincture? Or has anyone bought it in other stores? It really means a lot. Many thanks!

That's why in USA it iss called a Stone breaker. I also recommend it to my cousin who has a Hepa B. I really thank the lady who sell the chanca piedra in the philippines. Anybody who wants to buy , may contact them at 0916. 246. 46. 35, I highly recommend them. They are not SCAM.

Look at the pictures Bill already posted. It is very easy to find CP in even the smallest street markets, just look to the herb seller, I saw them and used them for green juices even though I had no idea what they were previously. These grow wild all over Philippines, no need to stress if Healthy Options does not stock it. always has anything as a last resort, but herbs that grow wild is just oo easy to pick up off the side of the street.

Maybe you can find the plant seedling already potted from an international nursery and then do grafts or harvest seeds from adult plant.

Just signed up for the site after reading some great information. My question is what brand name of chanca piedra is best? I have been reading about so many benefits. People are talking about dosage all day long, but no brand names. And when there is anything, the links are so old they are non-existent. The only one I found was Swanson. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! If we can't list brand names, then please state as such😄

Sheilaann, chanca piedra is a herb, search for the organic dried herb, this is best. Mine I bought as a tea but the only ingredient is chanca piedra in loose, dried form. 5 cups a day to break stones. Best to you

If you are having a hard time looking for the seeds or the grown plant in your area, why not buy the capsule form instead. Bill had mentioned several sites where you can buy chanca piedra. My sister got hers from Raintree Formulas. They have it in capsule and extract.

It might be about a 30 minutes drive however; I purchased it in El Mercadito in East LA. It's on 1st Street and Lorena on the 2nd floor. You can also try Hierbas de México on Whittier Blvd and Indiana.
