Last year I experienced pain in my back that caused a cold sweat and extreme pain. I was in so much pain I had my wife rush me to the emergency room at a near by hospital. After an x-ray the attending physician informed me I had several kidney stones stuck in my Ureter tube. In my case I had to have the kidney stones broken up using a laser procedure.
The Urologist informed me that I needed to be careful what I eat and he informed me there are foods and natural remedies for kidney stones I could try instead of using medications.
DR. Edward F. Group published the article Top 10 Natural Remedies for Kidney Stones over at realfarmacy.com where he presents 10 different natural remedies for kidney stones. You might want to try one or more of them if you suffer from Kidney stones. In my case changing my diet which is Dr. Edward Group number 10 remedy has helped me.
Top 10 Natural Remedies for Kidney Stones
The kidneys are one of the most important organs in the human body. The kidneys help to detox and filter impurities from the blood, as well as waste products from your urine. Kidney stones form when the kidneys are not able to process toxins efficiently. Specifically, a crystallization of unprocessed minerals builds up. Kidney stones cause pain and possible blockage of urine flow.
The following are some simple natural remedies that may help soothe the discomfort of kidney stones and speed up the body’s natural healing process.
1. Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, and Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
This is one of my favorites and easily one of the most effective remedies for kidney stones and the pain they cause. At the first symptom of stone pain, mix 2 oz of organic olive oil with 2 oz of organic lemon juice.
Drink it straight and follow with a 12 ounce glass of purified water. Wait 30 minutes. Then, squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon into 12 ounces of purified water, add 1 tablespoon of organic raw apple cider vinegar and drink. Repeat the lemon juice, water and apple cider vinegar recipe every hour until symptoms improve.
2. Uva Ursi
Uva Ursi is a common folk remedy for kidney stones. Not only will it help fight off infection in the kidneys, but it may also help reduce pain and cleanse the urinary tract. 500mg three times a day is recommended for kidney stones.
