How to Cure Kidney Stones at home

Kidney stones are very, very painful. Never rely on a laboratory test to tell you you have a problem. Your body will scream in pain, and that is all you need to know.

The cure for kidney stones is easy:

“Simply drink eight ounces of fresh-squeezed lemon juice immediately. Then add one ounce of fresh-squeezed lemon juice to a glass of water and drink it. Repeat this every hour for the next 12 hours. The stone is sure to go!”

Lemon juice contains lots of citric acid. Acid dissolves calcium. But this was even better. Citric acid is a natural and extremely powerful binder of calcium. You can drop a tooth into citric acid and watch it dissolve. (Please note that momentarily exposing your teeth to the acids in citrus won’t dissolve them. Your saliva quickly restores alkaline pH.)

I can confirm that this works because my cousin just cured his wife’s kidney stones with this recipe.

Do not worry about lemon hurting your stomach, lemon is aciduic but turns alkaline as it is digested. That is why your always served lemon with your water lunch to balance your acidic meal.

I’m a kidney stone former and already went thru several ESWL procedure. I have 1.3cm stone in my right kidney.
Now, I’m using Lemon and Olive oil combination once a week but not in an empty stomach, this is for 3 weeks now.
Will this help reduce/remove my kidney stone?

Close to ten years ago my friend Jack Welch recommend me some Kidney´s Purifier made in Spain close to 90 years ago made just with 8 Naturals Watered Distilled Herbs non chemical added
I was a little bit skeptical about it because I had tried so many treatments and diuretics medicines that turn my self into a really complete FULLNESS UNTRUTH about every alternative medicine or treatment
Just resignated to surgery or dialysis.

But because was my friend Jack advice something that I had to consider I really always had trust on him for a long time of confident and real friendship in between

He assure ME that this product RESOLUTIVO REGIUM
help in to release his chronic kidney´s stones problem in really smooth and soft way . After that he had been taken one cup daily and his urine flush color became clear and complete odorless.

Just because a long time friendship like ours it´s not a joke
I decided to try that product Jack´s recommended me

And after four month since I starting with following the doses instructions backed by over than 90 years of testimonies of European Users
This turn me into a really surprising and satisfaction when I realize how a simple watered distilled herbs could help me to get release of my old kidney´s sorrows and fears

This testimony is my better way to thank to my friend Jack for his invaluable concern advice and to my own life to count with friends like him

Hello Edwin,

I am just curious how long should one take the lemon recipe for kidney stone cure. I have a 5.5mm stone on my right kidney and hoping to dissolve it soonest. Kindly give me the recipe on a much expanded way. 8oz. 0f lemon then followed with 1oz. mix in water taken every hour. is this supposed to be done only on a 12hr period or longer? kindly give me a better instruction on how to go about it and get a good maintenance to prevent further stone formation. Thanks and looking forward to your quick reply!

ANNIE ATIENZA July 22, 2011 at 12:25 pm

I know that when you have a kidney stone disease you must drink atleast the minimum of 8 glasses of water a day or just drink many coconut water because coconut water can clean your kidney but if it is not effective you may consult a doctor to secure your health.

Jeff July 26, 2011 at 6:12 pm

best way to know how to treat your kidney stones is to go to your urologist, most of them prescribes acalka (potassium citrate) to prevent stones from coming back after eswl, and prevent kidney stones from growing. drink plenty of water and avoid food rich in uric acid.
