Grandma's Miracle Kidney Stone Cure:

8oz 100% tomato juice
6oz 100% beet juice
Juice of two lemons
2 Tbs. Apple cider vinegar (ACV)
1 small jar asparagus baby food

Stir or blend all ingredients well. Drink as quickly as possible without causing discomfort. Repeat every 4 hours until you pass your stones, which will look like sand when they pass. In between doses, try to drink at least two to three 8oz glasses of water with a little lemon and ACV. Two doses will usually do it, I have never known anyone who tried it to require more that three doses.

I posted here previously about how baking soda worked for my kidney stones by alkalinizing my urine so that it would dissolve my stones that formed in acidic urine.

Maybe about a month after I got rid of my kidney stones with baking soda, I experienced that dull ache in my lower pelvis again. I thought about using baking soda again, but I didn't like the taste of baking soda so I decided to try something new.

I then found that orange juice also had an alkalinizing effect on the urine, but it is not as strong as baking soda or lemon juice. Because I hated the taste of lemon juice and baking soda, I decided to give orange juice a try. My thinking was that I enjoyed the taste of orange juice, I knew for a fact it didn't have any side effects (at least for me), and if it failed I could always go back to baking soda.

Knowing OJ was weaker than baking soda and lemon juice at alkalinizing urine, I drank about 3 cups of orange juice a day. By the second or third day I felt the ache move down and that night my urine split into a dual stream (presumably from the stone passing). By the next day my ache was gone! I drink orange juice every day now.
