I found that staying in as hot a bath as you can handle really took the pain away. I did that and took Valerian Root which is a natural back pain remedy and it was the easiest stone I had passed. I will try the other remedies here as I just started passing blood which all of you knows what that means.
Had a 5mm kidney stone in my ureter a week ago, cat scan confirmed. Given pain meds, flomax, naperson, and an abt. One week later still in agony. My wife found this website so we tried the equal parts of fresh lemon, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil. Mixed 1/3 cup each and drank it before dinner. At 10pm the pain stopped, woke up and had coffee with my wife at 3am. Have not had any pain since 24hours later from when I drank it! No surgery needed now! And pain free! Thanks to all of you posting and my wife.
Passing Kidney Stones-
First of all, I keep seeing people mentioning CRANBERRY JUICE or pills. Please know that they WILL NOT HELP! It makes them WORSE.
Next- My cure that worked for me:
YES, Dark soda is a bad thing, BUT ***MY MD TOLD ME of this cure*** AND IT WORKED! I couldn't believe he was suggesting this, but...
He said that he would never normally recommend soda, and asparagus is actually high in oxylates and not good for kidney stone sufferers, ****BUT THE COMBINATION of soda and asparagus together causes a chemical reaction that WILL WORK to pass the stones (they adhere somehow- He explained it but I can't remember how he put it but basically, pull the stones with the mixture)****.
He said to drink 60 ounces (gag) of WARM coke- NOT DIET, and puree 1 pound of asparagus. Drink the soda within a 2 hour period and then down the asparagus puree. It was hard to get it all down, but I got most of it and held it as long as I could. I made it about a half hour but I was SO FULL I HAD TO barf a little to get rid of some of it. I then took a hot soak and passed the stones (5 of them) that same evening when I got out of the tub and peed.
You can thank me later after trying this remedy to pass kidney stone! I've had two blasted in hospital which costs $$$. Last 3 times I've been able to pass 4-5 ml stone on my own even though doctors tell me to go see urologist who will suggest liproscopic removal...with the help of pain meds and the "coke & asparagus" remedy. It works!! Basically you drink 6 real cokes (no diet, no Pepsi) within 2 hours. Boil fresh asparagus and put in blender until fully puréed. Drink asparagus within 5 minutes after drinking last coke. Google for more information.
Knowing something about sound and bass; I made my own apparatus. I took a wohl electric beard and hair trimmer, the old clunky huge kind, and a second smaller trimmer. I put one in front and one on side, back wards, with cloth wrapped around the trimmer. Don’t remove the metal trimmer because that actually is what creates the kind of deep low frequencies needed. I then took a subwoofer and while sitting on top of the subwoofer playing prerecording of “ohm” sounds (lots of people chanting Ohm, the ancient meditation sound) I moved the two electric shavers all around my torso and in many places held it. You can feel the vibrations, I imagine and I don’t say this to be gross that a woman’s sexual toy or personal massager would have similar effects. I broke the stone up to practically nothing but powder that showed up in my urine for the next day and one teeny tiny stone. And I know this was no small stone to begin with. It certainly wasn’t a record breaker but at 34 male and two urinary tract infections (first ever) this summer and being diagnosed twice (this summer) with severe dehydration, and a history of salt related medications (adderol and lithium) i know it wasn’t a baby. The pain when it set on was like being kicked in the back repeatedly. It didn’t come in 20 minute waves it was non stop. Ceaseless. I was literally shrieking so bad the housemates thot the neighbors would call police. When I took the shavers to my side…the pain was…not immediately gone but immediately subdued. I could feel it working. No joke it worked you don’t need a super expensive machine in a bathtub to take advantage of low frequency vibrations. Get creative.
So I'm actually here with a kind of question about my remedy. I've had tons of issues with Kidney stones since I had my last child, so much that I've been hospitalized twice in six months. I've been doing a 'tonic' of sweet basil, holy basil, dill pickle juice, and now putting some Flomax in the mix, because my doc told me I had to take 'something' or I'd be back in the ER . You can get the natural ingredients at any Food Co-Op (it's unlikely your regular grocery store carries Holy Basil, mine doesnt anyway and I live in a pretty big city) You can buy generic Flomax online at CanadaPharmacyRx . com but when you use it, make sure you actually have a script for it because it can cause other issues. Anyway, what I;ve been doing is putting my meds in the tonic, but only taking the meds every other day and taking the tonic without it twice per day. It's been a lot better. I wish I'd never have a KS again though:(
Both husband and daughter have kidney stones and are chronic. After becoming fed up with having to wait in the ER for pain meds every time one went on the move, we used a treatment our Chiropractor suggested...Eat the flesh of 1/2 a grapefruit twice a day (grapefruit juice is not strong enough to dissolve a stone...the fibrous pulp is what does the trick)...every stone that has formed and made itself known has been dissolve within 24 to 48 hours. We swear by this one
My husband had surgery 2x in two weeks because the stones clumped and could not pass through the stint over a year ago. Started having severe pain and went to ER. They said he needed to see Uroligist to schedule surgery. He wasn't near a store because he drives trucks but he went to Subway and got several packs of Red Wine Vinegar. Used one pack twice a day with 32 ounces of water with lemon. The pain stopped in 24 hours. Has passed 2 stones 1 cm and several 6 mm within a week. Now he drinks 2 tbsps of Red Wine Vinegar twice a day with lemon water.
After enduring 3 hours of excruciating pain I drove myself to hospital. Not my first bout. They took vitals and ask me to have a seat in lobby there will be a long wait. In lad on my side sat up knelled squirmed then just left. Made it home got on google to this page. filled a glass with - olive oil, - lemon juice and - apple juice(i could not read that is was cider). Was about 2:00AM. within 10 minutes I finally dosed off woke up at 330AM Painless. I will be drinking this stuff from now on well or not. I am so amazed relieved thankful for the internet. If bones are not poking out of the body the medical system kind resembles our law enforcement.....
First time having kidney stone. 4 mm on scan. Have had it for 2 months. Tried flomax and had terrible side effects from it. Trying equal parts of acv, olive oil and lemon juice. Tastes nasty but if it works.
